There was a time when Kratom was not as popular. But today, it is one of the most widely demanded herbs in the United States. Not only that but people from all over the globe purchase kratom directly from Indonesian and other Southeast Asian sources.
However, you may have already noticed that kratom is not available in major retail stores and e-commerce websites such as Amazon or Walmart. You may have thought, “where do I get kratom from?”
Fortunately, you can buy kratom from many sources. In specific, our store, Green Leaf Kratom specializes in selling the highest quality kratom products. If you are looking for top quality coupled with decent prices, then our store would be the perfect option.
Kratom is a herb that is widely known as Mitragyna Speciosa in the scientific community. Over the last few years, scientists have worked hard to figure out the pharmacology of kratom. After thorough research, they found that Kratom has a high composition of Mitragynine and 7-hydroxy mitragynine.
The levels of these alkaloids in kratom directly determine the quality. For instance, in higher quality kratom varieties, the alkaloid composition would be high. Similarly, when kratom powder becomes outdated, its alkaloid composition significantly reduces, hence lowering the quality.
Now that you know some basic facts about Kratom, let us discuss the different sources where you can buy it.
Where Can You Buy Kratom?
You can purchase kratom from gas station stores, third-party vendors, direct bulk importers, head shops, and smoke shops. Some brands are also setting up vending machines in some cities where the popularity is particularly high.
However, it might take another few years for kratom vending machines to become commonly available. For now, your best bet would be to buy kratom from an established business. For instance, our store Green Leaf Kratom entered the kratom business almost a decade ago.
Today, our network goes as far as Southeast Asia, where we directly deal with the highest quality kratom facilities. Unlike other stores, we are not third-party retailers. Rather, we directly import kratom from Southeast Asian facilities in bulk.
What to Look for in Kratom Stores?
Not all kratom stores and brands are created equal. You must do a thorough assessment of each store before placing an order. But what factors should you consider? Let us look at some of the most important ones.
Of course, quality is the first and most important factor that you must consider. Of course, it is difficult to figure out whether a store offers high-quality kratom capsules and powder, without buying anything.
But you can always check if the store offers any samples. As a first-order, we suggest you only buy samples (if available). It is a more practical way to get kratom.
Alternatively, you may also check if any kratom influencers and popular enthusiasts endorse the store. If yes, then you may take their word for it once.
Good Customer Support
You may have noticed that some kratom stores have non-existent customer support. Having no customer support, or poor customer support directly reflects the service of the kratom store.
All good stores that care about their customers, offer top-notch customer service. Such stores care about your time and money. Good customers support also suggests that the kratom store is serious about the business.
Well, the alkaloid profile of different Mitragyna Speciosa strains also varies. So, always buy kratom from stores that offer a wide variety of strains. To learn more about the composition of alkaloids, we suggest you visit our kratom blog and read our strain guides.
Of course, it would be far more convenient for you if you could find all kratom varieties under a single hub. This is especially suitable if you are planning to buy more than a single type of kratom product.
In the end, the price also matters. Depending on your budget, you may not want to spend more than a set amount on kratom. However, cheaper kratom often has very poor quality. That too defeats the entire purpose of buying kratom.
So, if you are on a budget, always purchase kratom from stores that sell in bulk. Such stores offer lucrative discounts on high-quality kratom. Our store, Green Leaf Kratom is a notable example.
After studying the chemistry of kratom, scientists also determined that different factors such as environmental conditions, processing conditions, and plant age affect the composition of alkaloids. So, as the last precaution, always ensure that the brands where you are planning to buy kratom obtain it from fresh sources.
