    E16 Special Guest, Kratom Advocate/ Activist Rockstar, Melody Woolf!

    E16 Special Guest, Kratom Advocate/ Activist Rockstar, Melody Woolf!

    Welcome back! It's been a few months and I'm thrilled to announce that I'm back as a new dad! For this episode I had the pleasure of sitting down to have a wonderful talk with kratom advocate/ activist rockstar, Melody Woolf! (Catch Melody’s interview is in 2nd half of the show.) If you ever wanted to get more involved in the kratom community, definitely tune in!

    Melody devotes kratom to saving her life, and she is doing everything in her power to keep kratom legal! I start the show with a few business & personal updates, like what it’s like becoming a new dad! Then we go over a slew of important news stories from the last few months like the recent FDA/ US Marshals seizure of $1.3 million in kratom products, the status of various KCPA bills, psychedelic decriminalization in MA, and much more! We finish up the show with the great chat I had with Melody! Topics range from her life prior to kratom, being bedridden or wheelchair bound in agonizing debilitating pain, to her current active lifestyle. Melody also breaks down her processing for advocating and what you can do to start today!

    Melody is a kratom activist, advocate and proud kratom consumer. I see Melody everywhere on social media standing up for kratom, fighting back against the misinformation and anti-kratom propaganda. She always comes prepared with facts and is ready to push back and stand up for what we all know is right!

    I had a great conversation with Melody about her debilitating life prior to finding kratom to who she is today. She is very active, biking or walking several miles a day. She takes NO medications. Goes camping and has even been rock climbing recently! Things I didn’t know about Melody is that she is a retired librarian in her 50’s, has three adult children in their 20’s, a grandkid on the way and has been married for 32 years!

    Melody says that she has been successfully consuming kratom for the past 6 years and that her life prior to consuming kratom was completely  different. Kratom relieves around 75% of her pain from fibromyalgia, arthritis, spinal stenosis, a frayed meniscus, shoulder tendonitis and sciatica. She WAS prescribed 11 different medications including being prescribed dilaudid & fentanyl! She rarely left the house, was bedridden, could only get around by using a wheelchair or a walker.

    She contributes kratom along with an active lifestyle to helping her regain control over her own life. *ROCKSTAR!*

    Welcome back! It’s been a little while and I’m so excited to be back with such an awesome guest! This episode is all about the most recent in kratom news and current events.

We go through the court filing and discuss the mistakes Kratom Divine made in their marketing, and what both vendors and consumers can do to ensure safe access.

    I then finish the second half of current events on my own covering topics ranging from the latest studies supporting kratom for relieving opioid dependence to the Mississippi legislative actions both for and against kratom, and much much more!

    Wade Harman is the host of The Botanical Resistance podcast. Wade has been drinking Kratom tea for 18 years and is passionate about educating people with facts about Kratom.

    Episode 12 - Special Guests, American Kratom Association Original Board Member, Paul Kemp!

    Episode 12 - Special Guests, American Kratom Association Original Board Member, Paul Kemp!

    We have two amazing guests for this week's show, Paul Kemp and Mac Haddow!



    In the first half of the show I talk kratom current events with Mac Haddow, Senior Fellow on Public Policy of the AKA. He clarifies his statement aimed at Trump regarding Hydroxychloroquine and how ‘the right to try’ should apply to chronic pain. We also talk about the latest in kratom (during Covid), the new AKA National Kratom Consumer Advocacy Council (KCAC), Matt Salmon replacing Dave Herman as the AKA Chairman, and much more.



    Then for our main guest we are joined by Paul Kemp, who was the first board member chosen for the American Kratom Association in 2014! We had such a great talk, discussing a range of topics from big pharma control, FDA, sugar, diabetes, exercise and natural remedies and more. Paul is 71 is in great shape, takes no medications and does not go to see doctors. He is a daily kratom consumer and advocate. He helped grow the AKA and encouraged consumers to support the organization as the most viable group to keep kratom legal.



    Paul says he always had an interest in writing and health. After benefitting immensely from kratom and finding the need to build the conversation and consumer-base around kratom, and if we were going to avoid another disastrous prohibition such as we've seen with the prohibition of cannabis Paul chose to start his blog, www.diabetes-symptoms-magic.com. There he posts articles promoting natural products, herbal remedies, healthy eating, cannabis, CBD, kratom and more. It was because of his writing about kratom, is what led him to join the AKA.

    Episode 11 - Special Guest, Brave Botanicals Owner/ Operator, John Bush!

    Episode 11 - Special Guest, Brave Botanicals Owner/ Operator, John Bush!

    This episode is action packed! We have special guest John Bush, owner/ operator of Brave Botanicals in Austin, TX and a fierce kratom advocate and activist! I will also be going over the latest in kratom legality with none other than Mac Haddow, Senior Fellow at the American Kratom Association (AKA)! I saw Mac at the Rhode Island Health & Human Services hearing for the Kratom Consumer Protection Act (KCPA - HB728) and was able to get a quick interview with Mac after the hearing in the hall! We will also hear from an anonymous advocate in Mississippi about their recent Senate & House hearings to ban kratom (schedule I) in her state!

    Over the past 17 years, John has been involved in various organizations and efforts aimed at creating greater peace and freedom in our world. After dealing with chronic fatigue and constant discomfort for years, he began exploring natural remedies for his health problems. His first big "ah-ha" moment came when, under the direction of my naturopath, which helped him beat back a major throat infection by nebulizing colloidal silver. He says, it was then that he finally understood the power the human body has to heal itself when given the proper nutrients and w/ the help of natural remedies.

    Years later he took over a bookstore and natural health shop called Brave New Books and began supplying the local community w/ a wide variety of natural and often controversial supplements. It was at this time that he discovered kratom, which changed his life.

Great

Thank you for you hard work. And being so passionate
About Kratom. When It seems like everyone Is so
negative.

Lisap ,

Great podcast with a great cause by a great guy.

I had the pleasure to purchase a few times from Mike. Some of the greatest Kratom I’ve ever had. He is very passionate about his business as he is also a Kratom user.

The podcast is very cool, informative and educational. Please help support this guy, he deserves it!

Great Information, Great Communication, Great Podcast

I've been an avid Kratom user/enthusiast for a while now, and stumbled upon Mike's podcast just by chance when I was browsing around the iTunes podcast app. Idk what this other guy is really complaining about, because Mike clearly states multiple times throughout his episodes that hes only doing this podcast to help spread awareness and education regarding kratom and to debunk some of the negative biases & "studies" that have been done (which he does- very well i might add); he isn't claiming to be an avid podcaster or entertainer - that's not the point of the podcast..so if he is reading from a script or whatever, who cares? You're still learning about the wonderful aspects of kratom and it's uses. I didn't find it hard to follow at all.

Whats even more incredible is that not only does Mke do this to benefit anyone who is looking to learn more about kratom or get some answers to any unanswered questions that people might have, but he's actually really down to earth and very communicative. I took a look around on Twitter & his website (still being built) - find his contact number - and chatted with him for a bit!
Hands down a great podcast with very informative information

TL;DR - Mike does a great job spreading awareness and info about the benefits of Kratom. He'll even chat with you personally and help provide any info you may need or are looking for. Love Kratom & this podcast. 5 stars!
