Lab Reports: To Believe or Not Believe

That is the question. The answer…..DON’T BELIEVE!

So I know what you must be thinking. Well, OK Botanicals posts their Lab Reports on the website why should I believe them then?

You shouldn’t.


Let me explain.

First, anytime you are putting anything in your body from a company you don’t know you need to take precautions. Unfortunately, not every company is honest. For example, do you know how many companies out there are actually doctoring Lab Reports? A ton.

They are taking headers of legitimate Lab companies reports and putting their information on the report like their company name, logo, etc. Its amazing what Photoshop can do.

Do you know how many companies are actually making these products in their homes? They print out great labels, send it in to be tested so they have a Lab report and boom….they are in business selling stuff that was made next to Felix the cat in the kitchen. Scary but true.

Did you also know that a company can make 1000000 bottles and make 1 bottle legit with the correct dosage of CBD stated and submit that 1 bottle into a lab for testing. Then bam. Lab report comes back great and they show the World that one lab report meanwhile the other 1000000 bottles have nothing in them but melatonin.

Yes, melatonin.

You see, melatonin relaxes you and people think “Wow, this CBD is working” when in reality there’s nothing but melatonin in it.

At OK Botanicals we have a name and reputation that speaks for itself. It’s a brand people already know and trust, but there’s something else that you probably didn’t think of…..

We sponsor Professional Athletes. If they fail a drug test they could lose everything in a blink. Do you think we want not only lawsuits but to have a professional UFC Fighter who just lost everything pissed at us? Think about that for a second.

Its not just CBD but its Kratom as well.

Do you know how many people we come in contact with that said they got so sick from Kratom they tried? Again, a ton.

There are gas stations and smoke shops that are literally selling dirt in a bag and making a killing because they are getting it, well, dirt cheap.

Old, bad Kratom will make you sick. It will make you throw up, have diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, headaches, sweats etc. Its not a good experience at all.

We help thousands of recovering addicts who are hooked on suboxone for years and the stories of how we changed their life is truly amazing so we make sure all of or Kratom is on point. Every kilo. Every gram. We not only Lab test our Kratom but we also bake it so it removes any contaminations. No, it does not change the quality of the Kratom one bit, but it will have more of a fresh tea flavor.

In closing, there are a ton of labs that will test your products locally for probably under $100. That might seem like a lot, but your health means more than anything and so does your piece of mind knowing you are putting something safe in your body. Always be safe.

I am here if you have any questions at all.

Should I have a Cheat Day?

Ask anyone who is dieting and they will most likely tell you no and give you 1001 reasons why you shouldnt. From “your body will go out of Ketosis” to the basic “there are no days off”.

Heres my take on this…… Pure BS.

Now heres the catch. I dont suggest you cheat until you reach your goal weight. When I say goal weight I mean intervals. For example if you want to lose 20 lbs that will take you usually 30 days. If you want to lose 100lbs then that is a different story.

This is my suggestion. Until you reach your goal weight dont have a FULL cheat day. For example, I love bagels. NO…listen to me. I LOVE BAGELS. If you have a goal of 20lbs maybe at 10lbs if you are getting the urge then go have a bagel. Dont load it up with a pound of cream cheese, but have a bagel. The rest of the day stick to the diet.

Will you gain weight? Maybe yes. Maybe no. Remember that this is your cheat day so as long as you are in a calorie deficit you still have a good shot at losing something.

Mentally, you need to stay focused and if it takes a bagel once in a blue moon then go for it. You only live once, and the key to success is not to deprive yourself of the things you enjoy like certain foods, because this is a marathon…not a sprint. This is a lifetime change that you will be making and Im telling you right now, if you listen to me and do this exactly as I tell you, that bagel will be the best bagel you have ever eaten in your life and you wont want that cheeseburger for dinner because you know how hard it was to get to where you want to be.

So YES, have a cheat day. Not once a week and not a full day but enjoy life and the foods you want to eat. Its not going to kill you unless you go off the wagon and start eating garbage again all day.

When you are training, working out, exercising, you are burning a ton of calories. When that time comes that you are exercising like a beast then we can discuss caloric intake on a whole other level, but for now just stay focused on your goals. Short and long term. Be realistic but also shoot for the stars. IT WILL HAPPEN.

What to expect from Kratom?

This other miracle plant has saved thousands of lives. From blue collar workers to recovering drug addicts, they all depend on this all natural botanical to not only just get by but live a happy, comfortable, drug-free life.

I have hundreds of clients that I have put onto Kratom that within 1-2 weeks their lives have changed dramatically for the better.

I’m going to list a few of the benefits here but first remember this easy adage: Red is for Bed. White is for Flight. Green is for In-Between.

Those are the colors of Kratom veins. Each unique vein gives you a different affect. Red for bed is relaxing, sedating. White for Flight is for energy, pre-workout. Green for In-Between is exactly that. In-between a Red and a White and will give you a sense of calmness, mental focus.

Benefits of Kratom:
– Pain Relief
– Nootropic (enhances concentration, mental focus)
– Immune System Booster
– Anti-anxiety, stress relief
– Mood Booster
– Fights Depression
– Improves Libido
– Sleep Aid
– Lowers Blood Pressure
– Aids in recovery from opiate addiction and withdrawal 

These are just a few of the incredible benefits of Kratom yet it is banned in 7 States. That’s a whole other article about Big Pharm coming soon.

Despite what the FDA puts out there, the only way you can die or overdose from Kratom is if you take a ridiculous amount. As with anything, if you take too much you are asking for issues.

I will discuss each vein in the upcoming articles,  but this is a solid start for you to truly grasp what Kratom can do for you.

If you have any questions on which to take, dosage, etc., please contact me and I will be more than happy to assist you on your new, healthy, happy journey in life.

CBD, THC for Eye Care

Did you know that CBD & THC might help your vision? It can also help with such diseases as Glaucoma, Uveitis, Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Retinopathy.

Glaucoma refers to an array of occular disorders that are associated with with a pressure imbalance , nerve damage and vision loss that can lead to blindness. CBD acts as a non-psychoactive antioxidant that reduces the production of reactive oxidative species.

Uveitis is a group on inflammatory diseases leading to vision loss or blindness as well. There are 4 different types of Uveitis and all 4 may benefit from the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD after their occurrence. CBD also is being studied for its potential to block oxidative stress and the damaging effect of toxins.

There are 2 forms of age related Macular Degeneration. Dry & Wet. Researches are studying now how THC & CBD can provide anti-inflammortory properties in occular disorders.

Diabetic Retinopathy is associated with the deteretion of the blood rentenal barrier. Again, CBD & THC may have the potential to reduce inflammation in this occular disease as well and research is already under way.

Vision loss is a very dramatic experience that takes a major toll on your entire body. The benfits of CBD alone for its anti-anxiety properties will help with coping with the issue at hand.

Dosing, for any reason you are taking CBD, is suggested you start out at small amounts then gradually increase until you find your “sweet spot”. Again, always consult your physician before taking CBD with any medications.
