Although buying kratom in the United States can be difficult due to different state laws that prohibit or endorse kratom, it is still much better than countries which have illegalized this plant outright.
In all the time that I’ve been buying kratom online, I’ve had plenty of both positive and negative experiences, and my primary advice to anyone who is looking to do the same, is to find a good source for unbiased reviews.
When it comes to kratom vendors, 70% of them will provide decent kratom, 15% will provide awful kratom, and 15% will provide great kratom. However, even within the kratom companies that provide great kratom overall, some strains are nonetheless better than others.
Where to Buy Kratom
Because the kratom market is a volatile one, it is hard to provide info on specific vendors that provide great kratom, as they are bound to change. Despite that, there are some vendors which are quite reliable overall, and they are often a good place to start.
Although reliability is important, there are also great kratom vendors which are new. Recently I’ve been buying kratom from EnsoBotanicals, particularly their Enso Thai, which is head and shoulders above some of the other Thai strains I’ve tried.
For more sedating strains, I’ve been buying primarily from mmmspeciosa, which has some fantastic options.
Getting your Hands Dirty
Although I’ve given some suggestions, the best way to find a great kratom vendor is through careful research. There are a multitude of reviews online which can be tremendously valuable. Because the strain quality of even very reputable vendors can change from season to season, keeping up to date on reviews is tremendously important.
Some of the best places to find reviews are on forums. Forums are great because they are an organized repository of reviews, making it easy to access reviews on particular vendors on demand. Another great source is online community sites like kratom subreddits, however, with this case, it is best to remain checking up recently because information quickly gets buried under the mass amount of posts.
Signs of a Good Vendor
Obviously, the most important thing to consider with any vendor is the quality of their kratom. However, even a company with good kratom but ships extremely late, or doesn’t ship at all, is not going to be worth the risk. Because of this, reliability is key.
A reliable vendor will provide good information on their website, giving you a good idea of when they will ship, and they will keep to these shipping and packaging standards continually.
If you’re going to be a regular purchaser of kratom, finding a vendor with good customer service is going to be important, as there are a multitude of things that can go wrong when buying anything online. Finding a company with good customer service will spare you of these problems.
When it comes down to it, finding a good kratom vendor is a science. You will want to gather all the data that you can, find potential candidates, experiment with the promising ones by purchasing a small amount, and either adding them to your list, or tossing them aside. Regardless, it will take time, but will be worth it for anyone who wants to use kratom long-term.
