How to Choose a Kratom Supplier
- April 28, 2021
Finding a high-quality source to get your kratom products is important, whether you’re an experienced user or just getting started. Finding the right supplier can make a big difference in your kratom experience, from finding information to connecting with a community to purchasing products.
There are many companies selling kratom, and it can be difficult to sift through all the information out there to determine which shops are offering high-quality products and trustworthy information, but the work is worth it, as you’ll end up with a supplier you can trust to provide you with the best products.
In this article, we’ll take a look at a few ways you can figure out whether or not you’ve found a quality supplier. To figure this out, we’ll look at community reputation, what the reviews say, and what else to look for when trying to figure out whether or not a kratom supplier deserves to be recognized as high quality.
How to spot quality kratom
When it comes right down to it, the quality of the kratom is what’s really important. Finding a potent and natural product will go a long way to ensuring your satisfaction. But there’s more to it than just potency.
Search out suppliers with diverse strains
Different people have different tastes and needs, which means we need various strains of kratom. Even if you have a trusted favorite, it’s important to be sure your supplier offers a wide range of products. A quality supplier will stock the three main strains of kratom: red vein, green vein, and white vein. For bonus points, look for a vendor that stocks variations, as well, like capsules and powder, or extracts and natural plant powders, or regional varietals.
At Sacred Kratom, we stock a wide variety of products. You can find red, green, and white vein kratom of Bali, Borneo and Maeng Da variations in both powder and capsule form. We also offer a range of enhanced kratom and kratom extract.
Look for lab-tested products
When researching a potential new source of kratom, be sure to check if the products are lab tested. If you can’t find proof of testing, avoid the supplier. Even if you love the strain being offered, a lack of testing could be a red flag that the product either isn’t what it claims to be or doesn’t meet the standards found in lab-tested products.
This testing should be done by an independent lab and will most likely come with a certificate of analysis. If you want to be particular (which isn’t such a bad idea), then you can reach out to the supplier and ask to see the lab’s certificate. Buying lab-tested products ensures you are getting a verified, tested, and reliable high-quality product.
By checking for lab-tested products, you will be going a long way toward eliminating lower-rate producers. Some of the things you will be avoiding include suppliers who source from low potency farms and manufacturers who add dubious chemicals to their kratom powder.
Lab testing will ensure you get kratom products that are potent, safe, and free from contaminants.
Consider community reputation
Without buying a product and trying it yourself, it can sometimes be hard to judge the quality of kratom on offer. But there is a better way than blindly buying and hoping for the best when attempting to determine the reputation of a potential supplier. Instead, look at the reviews of previous customers.
Check out customer reviews
You could start by using your favorite internet search engine to look for reviews of the company to get a general idea of the company’s reputation within the kratom community. Also, look for mentions of the supplier on Kratom-focused online forums, groups, and communities.
Be sure to check the company’s website for reviews, as well. A large number of reviews is a good sign, as it points to an established company with a decent reputation. Numbers aren’t everything, and a new company won’t have as many reviews as more established outfits, but no reviews at all is a potential red flag.
Make sure those reviews are legitimate
Once you’ve found the reviews, either on the supplier’s website or on the internet at large, you’ll need to make sure they’re real. It’s unfortunate and somewhat disappointing, but the reality is that some companies will pay for positive reviews, sometimes from people who haven’t even used the product, while others will just straight-up fake it by posting made-up reviews.
One way to be sure the reviews you read are not fake or misleading is to look for third-party verification. This is most easily done by looking for a signifying mark, such as a symbol or line of text indicating that reviews are verified by a third party. Alternatively, look for signs that the reviews are posted by people who have actually bought the product. This may take the form of a “verified user” label next to the review.
If you’re interested in the supplier but unsure about the source of their comments, reach out to the company’s customer service department to ask for verification that their reviews are legit.
There are several reasons to seek out quality kratom products, no matter your reasons for using kratom. For researchers, it’s important to know you have the best possible example of the product to conduct tests with. For those ingesting kratom, taking the time to ensure you have a high-quality product can reduce the chances of receiving an inferior or tainted product while also providing some peace of mind.
It may seem like a lot of effort, but the result is with it – you’ll have a reliable, reputable source of high-quality kratom products.
