One of the most appealing parts of modern technology is the options that it gives us. When we want to buy a new picture frame, we can check out dozens of prices and styles online before we choose a seller, buy it, and have it shipped our way. Never have there been more choices so easily accessed.
With so many more options, it can become difficult to decide which is the best because it becomes overwhelming.
Buying kratom is no different from buying anything else when shopping online. There are dozens of websites that sell various strains online, and your local CBD or herbal store might carry some as well. How do you decide where to buy something like kratom when it can be impossible to see the differences?
Choosing the right vendor is very important when purchasing kratom, especially if you will be buying it online. We’ll cover how to choose a vendor and why you should be careful in today’s tip roundup.
Tip #1: Ask Your Friends
Do you have friends that use kratom regularly? If so, those friends can be a great resource when choosing a vendor for your next kratom purchase. Everyone has different standards, but it is likely that everyone with kratom experience will be able to give you a good picture of what to expect from the vendors that they have tried.
If you don’t have a lot of friends that personally use kratom, reach out to an online kratom community and see what they have to say about vendors. Everyone who has purchased kratom a few times will have at least some information about their experiences with those particular vendors, and this information can help you to make more educated choices.
Tip #2: Consider Reviews Carefully
Reviews on the internet are a complicated topic. While they can be a great way to get an idea of how much people like a product, there is always the risk that the reviews found online are secretly commissioned or sponsored by the vendor themselves.
For that reason, it’s always important to consider reviews with balance. Take the things that are mentioned seriously, but don’t fall for reviews that seem too-good-to-be-true; they probably are. Think logically as you read through each review, and you’ll be able to get valuable information from them.
Tip #3: Shop For What You Enjoy
Another way that you can decide where to buy your kratom is to decide what strain, blend, or variety you want to purchase first. Even though there is considerable stock overlap between vendors, not all shops carry the same items. Kratom strains that are rarer or specially blended by a vendor will be harder to find, so you want to choose based on that.
If you’re not very particular about which specific products you want to buy, you can skip this tip and instead move to tip #4 to help you learn about vendor reliability while shopping.
Tip #4: Certifications, Reliability, and Policies
Let’s talk about what it means to be a reliable kratom vendor. Here at Phytoextractum, we think that it is incredibly important to keep an eye on our quality so that our customers don’t receive anything from us except the very best kratom.
Kratom safety has been a concern for the kratom community for a few years, and we fully support the efforts by groups like the American Kratom Association to ensure that safety is a reality in the community.
As such, we have spent time and money, ensuring that we follow their manufacturing guidelines and have all of the necessary certifications. When shopping around at various kratom vendors, these certifications can be a guide for you. After all, wouldn’t you feel more comfortable buying from a vendor that cares about that type of safety regulation?
Contaminated kratom has made it to the market in recent years, and we don’t want to see that happen ever again. We’ve implemented additional testing procedures, and we know that all reliable vendors would be proud to say that they have done the same.
Before you buy from a new vendor, check the following:
- • Do they support the AKA?
- • Are they part of the GMP compliance program run by AKA?
- • Do they share their test results with customers?
- • What do they say about testing and kratom safety?
By checking into these items, you can quickly discover if the vendor takes safety as seriously as they should.
Tip #5: Seek a Partner
We always mention that we believe the process of using kratom is always changing. As new information, strains, and techniques come into the community, you are consistently going to need a way to become informed about these things.
For that reason, we think it’s really important to choose a regular vendor that also offers educational support. You don’t need to enroll in kratom school, but knowing that your favorite vendor has a blog with up-to-date and detailed information can help you to feel more secure when making choices in the future.
One of our favorite parts of our website is our blog! There, we take the time to write up detailed information full of tips, tricks, and research that you might not find otherwise. Any vendor that goes out of their way to ensure that you know what you’re dealing with is likely to be a good quality choice.
Keep Your Options Open!
If you haven’t already done so, we’d love it if you give our online store a try. We always source high-quality products, and we do our best to ensure that our customers are always able to have the most positive experience possible.
Of course, we don’t think that you should only consider us! There are a number of reliable kratom vendors out there. Trying out a few different vendors makes sense as long as you are sure that they are selling safe, reliable strains of kratom. Doing this, you’ll get a better idea of what best fits your wants and needs, and that’s essential!
