Where to buy Kratom

Postby lhoff12085 » Mon Dec 19, 2016 2:26 pm

Kratom is a huge help to me to supplement my medication. I used to buy it at Botanical Wellness but they only accept Bitcoin now. Where are people now buying Kratom? Botanical Wellness is having trouble getting a payment processor. Also, is anyone using Bitcoin? If so, how do you do that?

Thanks!

Try phytoextractum.com. They take American express or bitcoin. I haven't used bitcoin recently, two years ago it was a bit of a hassle, possibly easier now.

moodandmind.com accepts Visa, MasterCard, etc. I've used both of these without problems.

I get all of my kratom from velvetsoulnaturals.com. I love their product, and they do take Visa and MC. The only tricky thing is you have to put the kind of kratom you want into the search box (i.e. " maeng da" or "red vein") and then you'll get the list.

I'm purchasing my first Kratom today and wondering if y'all can tell me the suggested dosage to start out? I've been scouring the forum for info but my fatigued brain can't seem to piece it together. I've got moderate PLMS and use Cannabis and most recently 50mg Gabapentin. I think Red Vein Borneo is the right strain and in powder form, right?

Yawny, people use lots of different strains, but the most common for RLS is Red Vein Borneo powder. 1/4-1/2 tsp is probably fine to start. Repeat once in 2 hours if no effect. It is VERY bitter, so I put it in size 00 gelatin capsules. I used to mix it in ice cold grapefruit juice to mask some of the bitterness.

Yes, I think a quarter or a half tsp. is good to start. I like it dissolved in orange juice better than in capsules, I think because the kratom is not water soluable, but does dissolve in acid, and so dissolves in orange juice. Otherwise it upsets my stomach a little.

Good luck with it!

Mary, it's good to have options. Your advocacy for Kratom has been both educational and inspirational...I'm sure others appreciate it as much as I do.

I've been getting mine at buykratom.us through a vendor called Kratora. I've liked their product and the prices are not too bad, although I haven't done a lot of shopping around to compare.

Looks like velvet Soul Naturals has the best prices. Their prices are about half of what the other places are. 1/2 kilogram is about $90 which is a little over a pound. Buykratom.us is about $150/pound.

SoCal Botanicals has had the best prices and service of the four or five places I've tried. If you try their site, you have to put speciosa in the search function. Right now, a kilo of red thai is only 85.
