A Guide to Buying Kratom Online
Buying Kratom online
You know that feeling when you go on Amazon to order something, but then realize it’s not listed? All you can find are books or t-shirts about it but that’s not what you want! No matter where you look, Wal-Mart, GNC, even your local health food store, no kratom.
Kratom has been a sought-after herb for ages now, and it’s not surprising that people would be willing to go through all kinds of lengths just so they could get their hands on some.
Back in the early days, before kratom exploded in popularity, there were only a handful of vendors importing the stuff. If you ask a veteran user about their past experiences they will tell you about just how hard it was to acquire. They had to deal with all kinds of problems from poor quality control to payment issues to long delivery times and sometimes complete scams- not what anyone wants from their purchase!
Even though the industry has improved dramatically, it’s important to be careful when you buy kratom online because it is still unregulated. You might end up getting ripped off or worse, getting an adulterated product with dangerous chemicals!
Luckily we’ve put together this guide on identifying red flags so you can avoid getting taken advantage of by scammers!

How most people find the best kratom online
- Word of Mouth: The best way to find a reliable kratom vendor is from a trusted friend. If you have friends who regularly buy from different vendors and recommend them, this will save time in having do your own research on which brand has what effect for how much money!
- Trial & Error: You could also try out many brands at once by ordering kratom samples first to decide whether you like their products. If you’re worried about a bait & switch (where they offer great samples but change up later when customer makes a large order) make sure not to wait too long between orders and check for a refund policy.
- Do your Own Research: When you’re looking for the best kratom, it pays to do your research. Find three brands you like and trust and make sure that the product you want (kratom) meets all standards before making the purchase!
What Makes A Kratom Vendor Trustworthy?
When shopping for kratom, it’s important to be aware of the common red- flags that may indicate a bad experience. This guide will help you identify these warning signs so your purchase goes smoothly!
1. Great reviews
One of the most important things to look for in a company is how many good vs bad reviews there are about them. A lot of people might think that this is the best indicator to check if a business is reliable and has integrity, but this can also be an opportunity by competitors to use shady tactics so remember: authentic or fake?
If a company has majority negative reviews, it’s an obvious red flag and most people who see them would avoid the business. It’s important to keep in mind that malicious actors are able to fake hundreds or even thousands of 5 star ratings for their products on platforms like Yelp and others—though many will promote these glowing testimonials as real without taking anything at face value!
2. Functional phone line/responsive email
If you can’t get through to a company before you buy from them then good luck reaching them after.
Some people like to talk to the company prior to ordering to ask a question, or just get a feel for who they’re dealing with, or check how responsive they are. The best thing you can do if something doesn’t feel right or sound honest on the phone? Walk away!
3. Satisfaction Guarantee
A guarantee alone is not enough to trust a company because any business can advertise that they offer an unconditional return policy, but does this mean you’ll get your money back if something goes wrong? Not necessarily. It might be tempting – after all no-one wants bad reviews on their product page! The problem with relying solely upon these guarantees as proof of quality or integrity lies in two areas: 1) how often consumers actually respect them; 2) whether (or rather WHEN) the vendor will even try exercising his/her rights under said agreement.
4. Competitive Pricing
If you are new to purchasing kratom, there is a chance that price may not be what it takes for your decision. This usually happens when someone only looks at one company’s rates and sizes up whether or not they can afford them without knowing anything about different prices throughout the industry (especially retail vs bulk). So make sure before buying any product online from an unfamiliar vendor how much each option costs because this will help with making smart choices based on budget while also taking into account brand name popularity which could affect future purchases if desired – but remember high-quality products don’t always come cheap!
5. Professional website
A reputable vendor will have professional looking websites that are SSL secured. They will also have a variety of payment options, information about their different strains, information about the company and a FAQ. If you receive an unsolicited message from someone trying to offer kratom for sale on Craigslist, Ebay or Facebook it’s a huge red flag and as a buyer you should avoid them.
6. Lab Testing
Kratom is not regulated and most testing for safety isn’t mandatory by law in most states. Companies who test it frequently are making sure that their kratom is safe and by doing so they are paving the way to keep kratom legal which should be supported!
Vendors should be testing for microbial contaminants, heavy metals and alkaloid potency. These lab reports are not cheap but it is the best way to ensure you’re getting clean, high-quality kratom. Unfortunately many companies still find ways around this and some have been caught faking their tests so make sure that whatever company provides them has an original certificate from an accredited laboratory.
