Tips To Buy Kratom During The Pandemic




As the world has been slowly shifting to the new normal with no clear idea when, if ever, things will go back to the way they used to be, you may be adopting new habits and practices. These include the way you work, interact with others, as well as shop.

When it comes to shopping, where and how you buy kratom has been affected too. You need to remain as, if not more, vigilant than usual in order to always get fresh and high-quality kratom.

Moreover, throughout this sensitive time, it’s essential to make responsible shopping choices and support businesses that you’d like to survive the pandemic.

How to Buy Kratom during the Pandemic

1. Shop Online

While local stores may allow you to get kratom right away without needing to wait for it to arrive, there are several benefits to buying Mitragyna speciosa online.

First of all, kratom from online stores tends to be considerably fresher. Local stores get their supply of Mitragyna speciosa from a distributor, aka kratom vendor, whereas a number of kratom vendors import their powder directly from the source – farmers in Indonesia.

Since less time is spent in transporting kratom from the farmers to the vendor and then to the buyer, kratom from online vendors tends to be fresher and more potent.

In addition to that, it also tends to be cheaper. That’s because online stores do not always require extortionate overhead and middleman costs, which up the price of the products.

Last but not least, buying online limits your interactions with others. You can have your package delivered to your doorstep, and all you need to do is pick it up. Quite a few vendors use discrete packaging, too, so you don’t need to worry about your neighbors being nosey.

2. Buy In Advance

Quite a few services have been disrupted, and postal delivery may be slower than usual. So, it may be best that you order kratom earlier than you expect your supplies to run out.

This way, even if your supplies run out, you won’t need to worry about having unplanned breaks from kratom.

3. Buy a Larger Bulk

The pandemic is the time you may want to have a little more Mitragyna speciosa in stock. That’s because postal issues may prevent the vendor from being able to restock as usual. As a result, vendors may run out of your favorite strain, requiring you to use different strains or shop elsewhere.

Having larger than usual kratom reserves can prevent you from experiencing this.

Keep in mind that you should store your kratom properly so that it lasts as long as possible. So, keep it in its original packaging until you actually need it. As you open it, store the powder in airtight containers in a cool, dry, and dark place.

4. Make Sure Kratom Is Lab Tested

During this highly inconvenient time, the last thing you probably want is endangering your health with possible pathogens like salmonella and E.coli. To avoid that, ensure that you buy kratom only from vendors who thoroughly test it.

Reputable vendors usually provide lab test results on their website. So, it should be easy for you to access and review them. If you can’t find any or they aren’t updated, consider contacting the vendor to clarify that. Vendors who deeply care about their buyers and their safety shouldn’t see an issue with that. If you receive no reply, it may be best to choose a different vendor.

To be on the safe side, look into vendors located in states that have passed the KCPA or Kratom Consumer Protection Act. It is a form of legislation that requires testing and labeling of products. Vendors who do not comply risk facing hefty charges.

Utah, Nevada, and Arizona are among the states that have passed the KCPA. More states are considering it; however, kratom legality bills are slow due to the pandemic.

Alternatively, you can opt for vendors who follow the GMP or Good Manufacturing Practices program. Do know that this one is a voluntary program. While vendors do their best to comply, they do not risk facing fines or incarceration if something goes wrong. Instead, they simply love their GMP status.

So, while buying from GMP-certified business is considerably safer than from non-GMP-certified business, risks may still apply.

5. Decontaminate Your Packages

Even if you order online, there is still a possibility that someone infected has interacted with your package at some point. It’s been proven that coronavirus can survive on surfaces for several days.

So, to remain safe, treat your packages as a potential hazard. Disinfect them after you receive them or simply set them aside for a minimum of three days or longer. This will allow potential coronavirus on it to die. And, of course, thoroughly wash your hands with soap or water or disinfect them with hand sanitizer after handling any potentially contaminated packages.

Above all, make sure to remain safe and sane and support vendors who follow ethical practices.
