Kratom Products Are Lab Tested And Processed by GMP

GMP and Lab testing for Kratom Powders is Essential

Our GMP kratom cleanroom is comprised of a gowning area, quarantine and a main production area. Our facility is FDA registered. We are current with local state and city regulations. Registered with the Oregon Dept. of Agriculture and have been inspected by ODA. Our Scales are registered with ODA. We have been 3rd party audited for cGMP's by an independent company. We are a Qualified American Kratom Association GMP Vendor. The cleanroom itself is certified an ISO-7 production and quarantine area and ISO-8 gowning room.

When working in a cGMP ( current good manufacturing practices) environment for supplements certain requirements must be done. This is outlined by the FDA in 21 CFR 111. Manufacturing and processing standards

Some of those you can see but most are done behind the scenes in the form of ( SOP's) Standard Operating Procedures. Everything has a SOP. There is even an SOP on SOP's. 

Being able to document and explain in simple terms your process from start to finish - what, when, how, were and why. Here are a few SOP's.

Handling Kratom requires proper cleanroom dress. Making sure all hair is covered a face mask and gloves are worn. Cleanroom coverall's or appropriate covering, shoe covers, ect. 

The biggest cause for contamination in a cleanroom is people. Wearing the correct clothing is necessary to ensure no contamination will happen with the products you are working with.

 

Cleaning and Maintenance.

Regular cleaning intevals ensure any contamination is kept under control. Specialized cleaning agents and tools for a cleanroom are needed.

Ceiling, walls and floors need to be wiped down and lint free wipers are used. Non shedding Mops are used. Deionized water is used with all cleaning agents. 70% isopropyl alcohol is used on all contact surfaces, walls, door handles, storage containers and equipment.

70% isopropyl alcohol is recommended over 99% isopropyl alcohol, the addition of more water in 70% allows the alcohol to penetrate the cells of bacteria. Water speeds up the denaturing process of proteins, causing membrane damage.

 Alcohols act on bacteria by making the cell membranes permeable. Efficacy is increased with the presence of water which leads to cytoplasm leakage, denaturation of cell protein and eventual cell lysis. Higher concentrations of alcohol are in fact less effective at killing bacteria.

 

 

Full monthly clean being shown, everything is moved and a deep clean is being done. 

 cleanroom being cleaned

 

Safely processing kratom correctly requires the knowledge of the raw materials you are working with. Process controls for manufacturing are in place and documented for every step. All manufacturing equipment that comes in contact with our products must be cleaned according to mandated procedures between production runs and verified to ensure sanitation has been performed prior to use.

In our cleanroom we sterilize every gram of kratom we sell. As known as Pasteurization. This not only eliminates any potential for salmonella but also drastically lowers yeast, mold, ecoli and enterobacteriaceae sometimes to levels undetectable on lab reports. We have validated this process thru our written validation procedures.  

 

Being able to document, explain and validate your process shows you have control. 

 

 Testing Standards

 

 

Lab testing Kratom is not only important but it is mandatory. We do internal macroscopic and organoleptic analysis of all our herbs. Our specifications are the same as AHPA ( American Herbal Products Association). Each batch is tested for salmonella, ecoli, heavy metals, yeast, mold and total coliforms. Providing safe kratom finished products.

We follow AHPA finished product standards. If a sample exceeds the thresh hold then that Lot is not used. All lab reports are available on request and held encase of FDA audit. We keep retention samples of all batches for 3 years as required by the FDA. 

Product samples are also collected at various stages of production for chemical and microbiological analysis to ensure consistency and purity. Lot code confirmation, weight checks, label and material checks are performed according to exact written procedures.

 

 

 Testing Standards

 

 

 

 

 

All our kratom powders are pasteurized and sifted!

On the left large STEMS that are discharged, anything over 50 mesh in size. On the right is an ultra fine pure kratom LEAF powder. 

The larger stem and veins are sifted again in a large sift were rare earth magnets are used and bright light for additional screening.

Why The Kratom Syndicate?

You can rest assured everything we process is done with extreme care and knowledge of the industry. Most kratom vendors don't process kratom in a Good Manufacturing Practice Environment.

Some Vendors that do GMP use 3rd party contract manufacturers because of how involved the GMP process is. Out of their hands and out of sight. We specialize in kratom. The only product that comes across our equipment is kratom. No cross contamination or fears of allergens.

Every batch of kratom is third-party tested by an accredited laboratory according to cGMP guidelines and our written specifications. Quality, Purity and Strength are verified before the release of each batch. 

To ensure a safe product all batches are tested. We provide an additional step and pasteurize every gram of powder. This is a very time consuming and very effective process. We have cleaning and process validation plans in place. We have on site analytical testing for equipment and contact surfaces. This testing provides microbial contamination levels and validates equipment and surfaces that they are then clean to use. 

 

 Testing Standards

 

 

One of the biggest concerns right now in the Kratom Industry and with the AKA (American Kratom Association) is that the majority of products being sold are Not Tested and processed in a cGMP facility.

Unfortunately a lot of products are being sold from homes and garages or even a business location that don't have the systems in place and required by the FDA. Buying safe kratom should be at the top of every customers list.

 

In Conclusion

Ultimately it is up to the customer to make the choice about the safety of product they purchase. If a kratom vendor can not show their cleanroom and lab reports at a minimum then I would be cautious about the safety of the products being offered. There has been to many salmonella out breaks regarding kratom and high doses of lead to take any chances.

Taking the proper steps to ensure a safe product is a very costly and time consuming process for business owners but everything we do is to provide our customers with the safest and best kratom products on the market today. We are proud to be your GMP Kratom Vendor.

If you ever have any questions please reach out to our customer service and we would be happy to talk to you.

    Convenient 0 people found this helpful

    I like the sampler packs because you’re able to try different blends without purchasing larger quantities. It gives you an opportunity to experiment. Another plus if you’re like me and find that different strains work for different things then this is a smart purchase because you can meet your various needs.

    I usually don't leave reviews but the service and products I received don't leave me much of a choice. This was a great choice to switch vendors to. I got my package in just 3 days! I have tried almost all 5 already and everyone i have used a gram less than my normal dose and still had tons more effects than all my previous vendors! They even sent me an gift of a sample of super green MD! This is a great package to get if your new to TKS and want to get your feet wet before going big!

    Not bad at all. 0 people found this helpful

    So out of the 5 my favorite was the white jong Kong and white horned. They were not the strongest I've seen, but they were still pretty potent. All 5 were all the same color and impossible to distinguish between. The over all effects were quite similar to each other. I definitely don't regret trying them. And for the price it was pretty ok. Shipping was fast and the packaging was excellent. I will give 3.5 stars for the quality and potency. I will definitely be back.

    AWESOME WAY TO FIND WHAT WORKS 0 people found this helpful

    The sample pack is the perfect way to chose different strains to see what works for YOU. We are all different and all using Kratom for different reasons. I found this way the best way to try different strains for my chronic pain, ptsd , depression and anxiety. The best part is you can play around and make your own blends and ratios Also this company has br far the best quality Kratom. It may cost more than buying a 75$ kilo from other companies BUT you are buying quality over quantity. I will never buy Kratom from anyone else after the syndicate. Just purchased another sample pack today.

    Spice up your order 0 people found this helpful

    I randomly ordered a sample pack to spice up my order of staples. It was a great idea, as I found some new favorites. Personally I feel the sample pack is worth the price as you may not be too keen on a certain strain and you won't have committed to a larger amount. It is perfect if you are new to Kratom or if you want to maybe try a variety of new strains. I've ordered another sample pack since because I want to try all that the syndicate has to offer. They are now the only vendor I use (before I would go to different vendors for different stains). I've only had one strain, the Yellow Kapus, that didn't work out for me. But Yellow/gold strains have never given me a pleasant burn and many people seem to love it.

    Loving This Sample Pack 0 people found this helpful

    I am really loving this sample pack! So far I’ve tried the Green Vein and the TKS Elite White, both are excellent. I would have to say that they both compete with my favorites. These are going in my regular rotation! Thank you Philly Kratom for recommending TKS!

    ordered a few sample packs from a few diff. vendors. Syndicate is by far the best option thus far. Packaging was great! Love the ziplock bags for each strain, extremely convienent. Extremely fast shipping, which was 3 business days faster than the competition. As far as freshness, im new to kratom, so i assume this stuff was very fresh.. Thanks Syndicate!

    Disappointed in current quality 0 people found this helpful

    Well I ordered 5 strains, 4 of them I had previously ordered from TKS last year and they were great. Such as TKS RED I really enjoyed last time. This time it's hard to even say if it's Kratom because by the end of tbe day I was super sore muscles like I was going through withdrawals yet I took 5 doses of each strain over the day. The TKS green was the only strain that even felt like Kratom at all. Just to make sure it wasn't tolerance issues I tried a red Thai I got from another vendor and it worked fine. So I have to just assume I got the unlucky weak batches.

    This was my first time ordering through tks and it was definitely well worth it! The amount I spent on 5 25mg bags is the same price I would spend on one in a smoke shop! Super fast delivery and the product is beyond better than any smoke shop will sell! I’ve only tried cloud9 so far and that stuff is great!! I’m happy I ordered through them, I will definitely be doing it again! Thank you tks!

    I think that the sampler pack is one of the best ideas for anyone new or old to TKS. I ordered a sampler and my GF ordered a sampler which allowed us to test out 10 different strains together. Best decision I've made in a long time.

    great way to sample the strains 0 people found this helpful

    I've purchased kilos in the past but wanted to do a sampling of the latests TKS offerings. This is a great way to do it as the increased cost that TKS charges to makeup all the little samples is negligible. They even threw in a couple goodies making it even more worth while. This is the best way to try a bunch of new strains. Cheers

    Being a newbie to krarom I am So thankful that I was able to try different strains to see what works best for me. I loved the Green gold it put me right where i need to be to begin my busy days. The red sulwasei was a nice relaxant for the evening. I learned Im personally a fan of the whites but maybe I need to try a few more. Overall im thankful I was able to sample different strains and it all is great quality.

    Experienced user using the kratom syndicate for the 1st time ever. As we all know we all want to get the perfect kratom and that's hard when there's so many options! So I ended up getting the sample pack and fell in love with the red kapuas!!! The smell of this kratom was amazing and the powder itself felt like snow. The burn in this was absolutely great and the aroma lasted for a couple hours. Made me forget about everything and just watched a movie with the family and time just went perfectly! Thanks TKS for a great 1st time!

    I am new to kratom and after lots of trial and error with vendors I was so excited to try TKS. I've heard nothing but great things about this vendor. I chose the 5 pack sampler so I could get a little taste. I tried the white elephant strain and was really impressed! It had great energy boost, mood lift and it made my day at work so much more pleasant. This was my first time using white vein and I will definetly be adding this to my rotation! Can't wait to try the other strains!

    Great intro to new types of Kratom 0 people found this helpful

    Like the choice of being able to select 5 different strains. Mostly have only tried red types before when purchasing from stores. Able to try my hand at some white and green strains without having to go all in with larger quantities. Was not disappointed with this purchase. Also, on a side note had some confusion with my roomate upon delivery, which led to my order being refused. The TKS customer service and chat line was quick to answer and to show that their customer service is second to none. Very pleased and am sold as a customer.

    my son came across kratom after 7 years of using prescription pain medication to treat his chronic pain. in 2016 he had 4 surgeries for a total of 8 in 6 years. he lived on narcotics but a year ago after having his pain medication raised again he started looking into altertenitives. since using kratom i feel as though he's back to the man he was before narcotics entered his life. i'm not familiar with kratom other than what he's told me. I know his last order was from the kratom syndicate because he talked about how great he felt and would only buy from them now. so I decided to get him some for his birthday this year and added that comment when I ordered. after placing my order I received my confirmation email with the sweetest note saying "tell your son happy birthday here's a free order" they sent it free of charge we recieved it today. thank you from myself and son. he's making his tea now. GREAT company
