Finding vendors with kratom for sale has become much easier in the past 5-10 years as the plant has taken off in America and is no longer an underground phenomenon. New kratom vendors pop up online every day. Kratom products can be seen prominently displayed in shiny packaging, front and center in most smoke shops all over the country. If you are wondering where to buy kratom, it’s probably not that you don’t have a number of options but more that you are looking for the smart way to buy kratom. We imagine you want a consistent product, a strong product, and you want to pay the best price that you can for that kratom. This can be a challenge in the market for kratom today.
In this guide, we are going to explore your options for where to buy kratom and the pros and cons for each option.
Kratom For Sale Online
There are thousands of websites with kratom for sale. The most common 2 types of sites that you will see are “ethnobotanical” sites and kratom only websites. In general, you can’t go wrong buying from either type of website and when you consider all of your options, we would argue this is the most logical way to go (I guess we are a little biased but hear us out). Most online domestic vendors will offer you quantities ranging between 15 grams to 1 kilo of kratom. Prices can vary drastically although they have decreased significantly over the past couple of years due to a sharp influx of suppliers in the market. The average price for roughly 1 ounce among many of these online shops is probably between $15-$20 (including shipping) with a lot of variation. In our experience GENERALLY speaking, the quality of kratom sold online is far superior to that of smoke shop kratom. Not to mention significantly cheaper. Don’t get us wrong, you can buy low quality kratom online but we believe you will find low quality kratom more often in smoke shops around the country.
Another type of website you may encounter online is the “legal high” website which offers kratom for sale as a great way to get high and makes all kinds of claims about how they have the best stuff around. We believe these websites are a detriment to the kratom community and their marketing practices paint kratom in a negative light. Please don’t support them with your dollars if you love kratom and don’t want to see it banned across the United States.
While the majority of online vendors that can be easily found are based in the United States, there are a number of overseas vendors both in the UK and in Southeast Asia that you can purchase from as well. Generally speaking, we have had good experiences purchasing from vendors overseas in terms of both the price and quality of kratom. If you plan on purchasing in bulk (that is 1 kilo and up), going with an overseas kratom supplier is not a bad option. There are domestic bulk providers in the United States however we have noticed that recently the FDA has been aggressively pursuing these vendors and attempting to shut them down. At the time this article was written (January 2016), these bulk vendors are getting few and far between.
Where To Buy Kratom Locally
Smoke shops in every major metropolitan city in America (with exception of those states where kratom is currently illegal) have kratom for sale. Go to the nearest smoke shop and you will likely see brands like “OPMS” & “Captain Kratom” in shiny packaging. Expect to pay a hefty premium if you want to purchase kratom in a local smoke shop. Financially speaking, this is your worst option. In terms of quality, we would argue this is not your best option. It can however be convenient if you want kratom that very day. If you purchase online, you won’t get your kratom on the same day. A big issue we have with kratom in smoke shops is the way they are sold. The majority of smoke shop operators don’t really know much about kratom except that it is a very profitable product for them. The majority of kratom products in smoke shops have flashy gimmicky packaging and will often refer to the product as “like heroin” or “opiates”. If we want kratom to continue to be legal, it is this type of sale and perception of kratom that needs to be avoided.
Also, a quick search on craigslist will likely return a number of local individuals who wouldn’t mind selling you kratom. On average, the prices are typically a little better than that of website vendors but comparable prices can be found on some vendor’s websites. This option requires that you are okay with meeting a random stranger somewhere or inviting them into your home to sell you kratom. Also, you are likely taking a bit of a risk in terms of the quality of kratom. These are the 2 primary options for where to buy kratom locally.
We hope you have found this information useful. Best of luck out there. You can buy kratom online from us at The Kratom Connection or a variety of other online vendors or smoke shops in your area.
