Even after all of the recent anti-kratom propaganda that has been spread by the uninformed or deliberately misinforming media, thousands upon thousands of people each month are still interested in buying kratom. While there will always be a group of people who are willing to take so-called “risks” when trying these compounds, those who buy kratom regularly are of a completely different breed.

This article will be about how to find good kratom at a good price, and without damaging kratom’s currently tenuous reputation.

Tip 1: Never Buy Kratom at “Headshops”

Although this is one of the most important tips for those who want to buy kratom, so many people around the US and Europe still purchase from these institutions. Almost every reason people find to ban kratom is because it is available in these shops alongside dangerous research drugs and synthetic cannabinoids. In fact, the first wave of anti-kratom legislature across states occurred because kratom was incorrectly added to the anti “bath salt” acts, lumping this natural herb with lethal and untested compounds.

Besides legality issues, the other reason you should buy kratom at these shops is because it is ridiculously expensive. Just a week ago, I saw a pack of 6 kratom capsules being sold at an MSRP of $25 dollars. With a little bit of forethought, you could easily buy a minimum of two ounces of kratom powder for the same price and create at least 50 massive ‘00’ capsules for the same cost.

When these factors are considered, there is no reason why anyone should purchase kratom from these institutions.

Tip 2: Buy from Time-Tested Vendors

Although new and great kratom vendors set up shop frequently, they are a vast minority when you consider the new and awful kratom vendors that also hit the market. The best way to make sure you are getting a high quality product at a good cost is to go with vendors that have stood the test of time. If you’re looking to buy in quantities less than half of a kilo, there are plenty of great small-size vendors that you can purchase kratom from.

Tip 3: Ask Around

For those of you who haven’t bought kratom and have been surfing the web looking for a good vendor, the best advice that I can give you is to ask people you know who have tried kratom. If you don’t know any people, there are plenty of online communities that will be willing to help you out. However, it is important to beware of shills who are only looking to promote one brand, vendor or company.

Finding a good kratom vendor is one of the best investments that you can make if you intend to use kratom long term, for reasons like pain or anxiety. The best way to do that is to try out several reputable vendors and strains that you think will fit what you want to get out of kratom. This process may not be instant, but it is absolutely worth it.
