Does anyone know what the seizure rate is on orders coming out of Indonesia. Getting ready to make a order from BB and was trying to get some information.

Seems to me that some folks have a method for better success rates, but it’s a gamble no matter which way you approach it.... but sounds like there is a means for shipment.... who and how .. idk

The best bet is to buy slightly bulk from those vendors who have it figured out....guarantee doesn’t get guaranteed when you order free agent status from a indo vendor whome you don’t have an established relationship with .

Just always feels risky !!!

What supplier and how many legit reviews are available to give proper credibility??

I'm not aware of any seizure "rate", but I have heard that vendors who know the correct procedures, label the product honestly, fill out the paperwork correctly, (and perhaps have good relationships with the export officials -- $$$?), get packages through more dependably.

I've heard that farmers associated with the PEKRINDO organization of growers and exporters are known to follow the rules and have the trust of the Indonesian government, which facilitates safe shipping and may help getting packages labeled "mitragyna speciosa" into this country. They seem to do well for those I've heard from, both individuals and smaller vendors.

Buying from random Indo farmers is a crapshoot and -- unless they come with a credible good recommendation -- I wouldn't risk going through them. Many will falsely label the package as some other herb (even if you tell them not to), which can get you put on the Import Alert "blacklist".

Not to mention your products won’t be tested for contaminants and other safety features now provided FOR A BUILT IN FEE for guaranteed happiness (ILK Vendors are required to be implementing GMP and must have a return policy) along with recourse if your package doesn’t make it.

There are very good reasons that we pay more here now.

Reminds me of getting stuff “because it’s in season” over there. The only season is RAINY SEASON and it lasts all year. So don’t fall for the “fresh while it’s in season” line.

Good luck with your shipment!

It seems to me also that it boils down to who you know. Thanks everyone for your insight.

Yes I would rather pay more from a Reliable US Vendor than from a Cheap Indonesian Vendor. It is like taking a Gamble when ordering from an Indonesian Source. The US Vendors have already got the Best Indonesian Suppliers to Supply them so you don't have to Search for one. They Test their Products & have the Best.

I read that the machinery used to grind can sometimes be ancient, and not food grade, meaning some of the metal can leach out.

That's why it's so Important to Test the Kratom for anything that could possibly get in there. There is nothing Regulating the Indo Suppliers or Vendors so they don't have to have a Standard to go by. They just Grow it, Pick it, Dry it, Grind it, Package it & Ship it.:huh:

Lots of metal in kratom, we've sieved stuff (where it gets run through a magnet) we got from other suppliers and discovered quite a bit of metal (Probably Iron or steel) dust in some of them and the lab said that it won't necessarily be detected in heavy metals testing. Never consume kratom that is "magnetic", that can be a tell tale sign of metallic dust. I'm not sure if consuming steel or iron dust is harmful, but I don't wanna do it.

Interesting dilemma because I’ve noticed some of my favorite product kinda act “magnetic” on my steel spoon. I’ve noticed fresher product can do that. After it sits for a while, same stuff no longer does that. Hmmm :-?
