Now I have got some new issues. The site I had purchased my kratom from increased their prices. For the last 5 months I was getting 250 grams for 30$. Now it will cost me 45. If I don't use Lortab at all then it amounts to 90$/month expense whereas the lortab is only 20$ month. I am retired and I really cannot afford to put out that kind of money. The only other course seems to be to go back on the lortab or use half Kratom and half Lortab (not at the same dose, of course). The state of Nevada has new opioid statutes that went into effect yesterday and that may affect my ability to use the lortab even part-time. I got my Kratom from a different site this time but the cost was the same 45$ for 250 grams. Even trying real hard I can't get my daily useage below 16 grams per day. Any thoughts or any sites where I can get Kratom for less than I am paying now. This whole thing sucks big time.

I haven't been using it much lately, so not familiar with best pricing. Are you a Reddit user? There is a very good Reddit about kratom with lots of vendor and pricing info.

www.socalherbalremedies.com most are $25/250g. I've used them many times. Reliable fast.

Some Reddit users recommend Mystic Island Kratoms. www.mysticislandkratoms.com. $21/250g. I haven't used them but will probably try them in the future.

StJohn,
SoCalif is the site I was getting from and to which I referred. Recently they eliminated the 250 gram option. I would have had to purchase in smaller quantities and it would have come out to about 45 dollars for 250 grams. I checked today and they are out of stock once again. They have also added an optional surcharge of a couple bucks or so to have a signature on delivery because they were having so many lost/stolen in transit issues with delivery. It happened to me in November. I put in a claim with the post office and two weeks later I received the product! I will check out Mystic Island. Thanks for your response.

Socal herbal remedies does seem to keep only a small inventory. They are frequently out of stock of something. Usually they restock in less than a week. If you are otherwise happy with them, the larger size you want will likely be back in stock soon. You can email Justin and he will tell you when a particular strain or size will be available.

Holland

The issue is that they removed the larger size as an option before they had gone out of stock on the strain itself, leading me to believe they no longer offered it in that quantity.
