thanks for the info. I’ve been using kratom for about 4 years. I started out on red maeng da, and liked it and never switched. I’m a if it isn’t broken don’t fix it person. So back then I was Ordering from a company called buy kratom bulk. I was happy with it then they started messing up orders, and taking a long time to get to me. When I was Looking for a new vendor I waisted hundreds if not a thousand or better, trying new vendors. Then I found Krabot they’ve been great except a little expensive. Until recently they’ve changed the red maeng da. Now I don’t want to go through that just buying randomly again. I like a nice full spectrum maeng da not too speedy. I go through about a kilo a month too so not too expensive either.
Plus there is the new I love Kratom website, now migrated and dragging a bit BUT FULL OF INFO on vendors, personal stories, etc if one uses the SEARCH buttons within the website for navigating around (otherwise we get lost, it’s very new but the information within is current and valuable/applicable). Just SEARCH for keywords for ideal results: https://www.ilk.co
Here are some external resources that I’ve found helpful.
I’ve tried a few of the vendors discussed on Double M, feel free to ask if you have any questions.
If you have Discord, Neverland is one of the few remaining useful Kratom servers. Also MeWe has plenty of vendors and Kratom related discussion. I’m guessing Facebook does too, but I’m not a fan.
Hey Ned! There’s lots of different places for finding good vendor information. It’s been a tricky thing to find because the industry was very competitive in its youth and worry about bias or false agendas were of concern. This year, there is ample customers for most of the vendors and the industry is slowly becoming a united community and more honesty is to be found. The other difficulty in finding good information is the big pharma competition has a lot of well-meant honest to goodness helpful information removed from the internet frequently. About every six months, the internet gets essentially wiped clean of the good information, the search engines get rerouted to lies and we have to start posting vendor reviews n stuff ALL OVER AGAIN.
Finding the “best product for the lowest price” is everyone’s goal, but it’s not as easy as it sounds due to vast differences in metabolism that never stop evolving. There is so much MORE to it. How can we help? Are you merely shopping or are you sorta new? It matters in how we can help you get the best results. Laurie
@patrickc the capsules are EXPENSIVE if you buy them so having the inexpensive resource of making them is ideal if you have a good “TAL” (see towel above) lol. Otherwise it’s fine to continue with the spoons. I catch crap about my spoons still, but I still use the same measuring spoon I grabbed in the kitchen during my first try of kratom, a 1/2 tsp I still use. I’ve added a full tsp to my rotation bag and also a 1/4 tsp. I don’t have room for making capsules indoors where I live. You’ll probably want to incorporate a routine for tackling the constipation. I currently use miralax mixed with some good vitamin powder and psyllium husks religiously once a day. Hope you keep posting your thoughts here. I’m sure it will be of help to someone else coming up behind you.
