If you’re reading this post, I’m assuming that you’re no stranger to the internet, and have very likely bought plenty of products online, so I’ll spare you the broad stroke guide on buying kratom online. Instead, this post will focus on things that are unique to buying kratom which you should be aware of.
I hope that, after reading this guide, you will be able to buy kratom with confidence, and get good results.
Unlike many other supplements and products, kratom isn’t regulated by the FDA, as it isn’t considered a dietary supplement. Although this can make it difficult for suppliers to regularly keep kratom in stock due to FDA regulations, it can also make it more difficult to be sure you are getting a high quality product, as kratom harvesting and processing facilities don’t need to be inspected at dietary supplement standards.
Because it is unregulated, it is important that you are buying kratom from a high quality source, and reputable vendors. For this reason, I find that it is a good idea to ask vendors about their standards at which they process and buy their kratom.
Typically, vendors who process their kratom safely and correctly are more commonly purchased from, as indicated by their final product. The best way to tell the quality of the kratom before buying is to see how many long-term users a particular company has, this is easy done through reviews found at many online communities. However, kratom effects can vary dramatically depending upon the type. A great, and very complete, guide to kratom can be found here.
Another thing to take note of is the quality and potency of the kratom itself. If you buy almost any product online, you know before you purchase what you are getting, with kratom, it is a bit more difficult, as potency can vary dramatically between vendors.
Typically, more established kratom vendors tend to stock higher quality kratom, as they have been in the market for longer, and have better sources of kratom at lower costs. However, there is no way to be absolutely sure of the quality of kratom that you are getting, even if getting the same strain from the same vendor, potency can still vary.
Because of this, there is an inherent risk in buying kratom, however, there are certainly ways to minimize that risk. One of the most important of these is doing your homework before purchasing from anyone; there is plenty of information available online on different vendors and strains, so don’t overlook it.
Additionally, a good way to minimize risk is to buy in smaller quantities from different vendors instead of a big purchase from one vendor. Although it may be a little more expensive, you have much less risk of buying a low quality product.
Overall, buy kratom online is tricky, but with a little bit of work, you can minimize your risk and have great results.
