6 Online Kratom Purchasing Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

In the year 2020, an estimated 0.8% or 2,031,803 U.S. adults used Kratom. You may have stumbled across a Kratom review on social media or heard about a buddy trying it out for the first time.

If you’re intrigued by how you could incorporate Kratom in your daily routine but do not know how to shop for Kratom, keep reading. In this article, we share six Kratom purchasing mistakes to avoid when buying Kratom online for the first time. 

1. Not Doing Enough Research on Kratom

Before you go on any random Kratom store website and purchase different Kratom products, make sure you do your research.

Kratom comes in a variety of “colored veins” and subsequent strains. Red is the most potent as it comes from the most mature leaves on the plant. White has the mildest potency, coming from early-harvested leaves. Green has potency between the two.

Within these colors, there are different Kratom strains, and each strain induces unique effects. Be sure to research the strain you are thinking of buying. 

2. Not Researching the Vendor

In addition to researching the product, make sure you also vet the vendor. A trusted online Kratom store will have plenty of online customer reviews, a well-designed and functioning website, and additional resources to walk you through learning about Kratom.

First impressions on their website can give you a good sense of whether the vendor is an actual authority vendor in the Kratom industry.

3. Neglecting Lab Results

In 2019, the FDA carried out a lab analysis on thirty different Kratom products by multiple vendors to determine metal contents within the products. The study found that many of the products contained heavy traces of lead and nickel at concentrations deemed unsafe for daily usage.

However, some vendors have strict production standards and regulations to ensure a pure and quality Kratom product.

When looking to purchase Kratom online, be sure to check whether the vendor has disclosed third-party testing results to vouch for their products.  

4. Going for the Cheapest Option

As an online shopper, you may be accustomed to finding the best deals for the products you are buying. No one wants to pay more than they have to.

However, when it comes to purchasing Kratom online, you have to have a little leeway for price. The cheapest Kratom option is not always the most reliable. Generally, it never is.

Comparing kratom prices and taking into account online customer reviews can give you a good idea of the Kratom product you will get.

5. Bulk Buying Kratom

Another one of the most common Kratom purchasing mistakes beginners make is buying Kratom in bulk, or buying too much Kratom.

As a beginner, it is better to start with a small quantity to see if you like taking Kratom at all. Kratom is not for everyone–you will find out after taking your first few doses.

Avoid buying Kratom in bulk before you determine whether Kratom products are right for you. 

6. Buying Kratom When You Can Grow

The last Kratom purchasing mistake people make when buying Kratom online is always buying from someone else.

You can bypass all of the product and vendor vetting by growing Kratom indoors. Of course, check with local regulations to see whether your state, city, and county permit it, first. 

Avoid These Common Kratom Purchasing Mistakes

Now that you are aware of these common Kratom purchasing mistakes, you can go forth and make your first online Kratom purchase with confidence. You know how to vet the products and the vendors to ensure you are getting the highest quality product for the best price.
