Hey everyone, I am new to the forum.. I am from Northern NJ (yes you can make fun/hate if you please)... Please don't though :o

I could give you my life story, but I won't because I am still learning the forum rules and regs. I discovered Kratom a few years ago and couldn't really find any vendors online that I trusted or felt were reliable to use. I tried one or two and wasn't impressed. I've been around the block come "stuff", I'm in my early 30's, was always trying to find something to help with my pain as I grew up playing ice hockey and got my butt handed to me on occasions, I suffer from a lot of lower back pain, a left ankle I can barely walk on at times, tendonitis/arthritis in my arm, shoulder, wrist, hip, you name it...

I've tried pharmaceuticals, hate them. I have tried a few different strains from the online vendors I've felt safe enough to try, one being KratomCountry which seemed alright, I've tried their Green Bali and Red Thai. Green Bali for some "energy" and Red Thai for the "pain".... I recently tried some Red Thai from Kratom Tradic Country and it seemed to blow away what I got from KC.. basically more potent, but me on my butt.

I picked up some capsules from our local headshop, they said they were Green Bali, and they've seemed like the best I've been able to get so far, just pricey (because they know they can), which is upsetting... but I feel "iffy" getting them from there, I trust them as I've purchased a lot of gadgets and toys from there, know the owner a bit as he is a Devils fan, so forth... I personally feel better buying offline as odd as it sounds.

I'm on anxiety medication, I was also on a light painkiller, but when I got the Red Thai from KTC I felt no need for my PK, but was also wiped out energy wise. When I take the caps from my headshop, the pain goes away as well, and I do have some nice energy for work where I am on my feet for 8+ hours a day moving around and talking to people, I don't like being slumpy or lazy which my pharm meds have made me in the past unfortunately... but I can't function much physically without them.

I really think the "Green Bali" from the head shop has been the best I've had, I'm just scared that they possibly don't know what they are selling, or it could be adulterated, etc... I prefer to buy something with a name, a specific strain, with reviews, ratings, and I am leaning away from my original vendor to find someone new...

I apologize for the lengthy post, I have loved Kratom it has helped me a great deal, I can actually even ice skate and play hockey again. I just need to find the right straight for energy and pain assistance. I have no issue with the toss and wash, I've got a capsule machine as well, so either way doesn't matter. I freakin swear if NJ bans this stuff I will go ballistic, I have heard they've wanted to, but pray they don't.

Love to meet fellow friends, would love to get some feedback, like I said I work 8+ hours a day, 40+ hours a week, retail, (alcohol store.. and I do NOT drink lol). I like to jog, and I like to play ice hockey casually for fun.. open hockey for an hour a week.

I'm not sure if I can ask if the vendors I've used are good, bad, or if someone can recommend something better? If someone could recommend what strain would be best for me, I do not like feeling lazy, I do not need euphoria, I just want to be painless, have energy to get stuff done... I purchased a sample pack from MmmSpeciosa; baik bali, green bali, green vein mang da, green vein borneo, and white vein endo... I've got no idea what to expect.

I also purchased some sumatra white vein from KTC... I hope that I didn't just piss a lot of money away, I'm hoping I can get a little something positive out of everything purchased, I guess I will see.... can anyone share any positive experiences, vendors... etc. I apologize for the long post and if I disobeyed any regulations.

Hello Johnny, welcome to the forum! :-h My go to vendors are HB@M and Pharmacy Dropout. Both offer quality kratom at good prices. Click on the vendors tab and you will find many vendors and all can be trusted.

Hey johnnybee22 glad to have you here on the ILK Forum. I would stay away from the head shops. They are just so expensive. They sell Kratom as a Legal High & they just might get Kratom banned. So I wouldn't support any head shops if I were you. Usually any red strains are good for pain but everybody responds differently. All the Approved Vendors here are Excellent. I would check out Ensobotanicals.com for more info on Kratom. They have lots of good articles on Kratom.

Thanks guys. I've read more and more than my brain can handle, and it's really coming down to just trying them all out. I really liked my vendor KC, but what I got from KTC was so much better (red thai at least) so I am trying out their green bali which should be coming soon. I have always wanted to try the white straind, the indo's, maeng da, and borneos. I've had good experience with a maeng da before from KC... just was a tad more expensive.

Some of these sites scare me, I had my CC# stolen a few weeks ago, well just used suspiciously on 3 sites one morning, and as much as I wanted to blame a newer vendor I used that I found off Google, I can only blame myself for being not being careful and doing research. I would name the vendor here, but I do not want to tarnish anyone's record.

I've been to Kentucky, a few years ago for a work project, and I remember there being a terrible shooting in Luxembourg one morning I believe. A fellow I was working with had a relative in the area, and stated it was obviously over drugs. I live in North Jersey, where anyone can take a ride to Newark, Plainfield, Elizabeth, or any of our wonderful city's and probably find a corner or spot to find whatever you are looking for... thankfully the violence is down.. but the police do not help as they tail, follow, investigate, arrest, then try and have every small time user rat and snitch out the bigger fish... which leads to what? VIOLENCE! Thank the police for half the shootings and violence that occurs, because wouldn't you get pissed if you knew someone down the street from you was the main reason you got arrested, for just smoking pot or whatever.... but nope got to be the "bigger" more mature man and let it go... and be an adult.. and civil.

I've dealt with some horrible individuals throughout my lifetime the past few years, both users and dealers, all mostly schemers trying to make a buck, so it's really sad when you see someone addicted, who can't afford the proper care (rehab, real doctors/meds), and to be honest, i've gone the real doctor and meds route, and it's all a money making scheme, just legalized. Because once your pocket is empty, or your insurance runs out, those doctors would watch you die in the street and care less as they simply wait for their next patient.

Kratom would benefit everyone, everywhere. It's helped me get back on my feet, physically, mentally, it's helped me stray away from my pharm meds, which is wonderful just knowing there is something I can rely on that isn't a doctors visit, $X amount of money per visit, per pharmacy co-pay, etc... if this government cared they would continue to keep it legal, which it currently is most places, simply because it flies under the radar... as much as it can with all the negative horrble propoganda big pharm and big gov feed Fox News, CW11, UPN9, CBS, NBC, and all the networks to do stories comparing kratom to K2, bath salts, and other ridiculous MAN MADE chemicals, that freaking ruined lives and killed people.

I worked in a jail as a jail guard, half the staff was on something, alcohol, drugs, whatever... more than half the inmates were non violent and incarcerated for either distributing narcotics or users/addicts with multiple possession charges. Even more people are on probationary sentences because the jails are too full, it's pathetic.

It's exactly like that Pineapple Express movie where the fat guy is talking to the radio host regarding legalizing pot, it would be better for everyone, nobody wants to deal with the criminal aspect of things such as dealing with drug dealers, shady characters who pretend to be your friends to make money, but as long as the government can't find a way to profit on it.. things will continue to work the way they do. Just like the article on the front of your webpage regarding why Kratom isn't as popular as it should be for rehab/etc... because action in-patient rehab facilities are making a fortune "detoxing" and shoving people through the 12 step programs. I did 7 days at a detox, saw my insurance bill, over $1,200 a day! Come the rehab... when my insurance ran out, they wanted to charge me $800 a day! LMAO! Sorry for the rant, but Kratom has really helped me, I wish it was more easily accessible, I wish it were a bit cheaper, because unfortunately at the moment I'm kind of stuck on pharm meds simply because medicaid pays for a majority of them... but obviously if Trump is elected we know that will stop... so we shall see...

Yes just be sure to Research the Online Vendor before you buy from them. All the Approved Vendors here are very reliable. I would stay away from most overseas vendors unless you know the Vendor well. Bikhuk The Source is a good reliable vendor. I have made countless orders from Bikhuk & never have had any problems over the 6 years that I have been buy from them. They have trouble with some Orders getting Seized by Customs sometimes but they are trying to figure a way around that.

Thanks, I would absolutely not buy anything from anyone overseas... and sometimes some of these sites just looks so unprofessional they scare me off before I even consider checking them out... but I've been wrong about 1 or 2. I'm just wondering why I don't see KratomCountry up here.. they have always been good to me, best shipping ever ($2.99 2-3 day CA to NJ).... I understand if their product is not the best, but they've always treated me 110% perfect.

I would like to try Bikhuk, however I am weary of spending a minimum of $100 for a first time buy off somewhere...

Thanks! I got my 1st of a few tiny shipments in yesterday, mostly samples, do have 2oz of White Vein Sumatra... which I kind of regret as I have been coming to learn I am much more a Red/Green person.

I don't know if it's okay to say who I got what from, I don't want to be unfair and advertise for anyone versus others.. But I did get some Green Borneo, Green Maeng Da, Red Maeng Da, all which have been very pleasant.

I've noticed that a lot of people like to have empty stomachs, I personally need to eat a little something when I wake up, as well as have some iced hazelnut coffee or some regular hot coffee to truly wake up and feel good. If I go empty for too long I can feel edgy, which I do not like. I've got some WV Indo, WV Maeng Da, and Bali Indah, and Baik Bali which I have yet to try...

Hey Johnnybee22 :-h

Welcome to the forum! Everyone is always very welcoming on here and there is a lot of good information for new Kratommites.

I also figured I'd chime in on your question. ILK encourages vendor reviews to help other users get better opinions, so go ahead and tell us! All of the vendors that I've talked to on here like to play nice :x I'm sure they'll enjoy seeing your review of their products as we all do as vendors!

Take it easy and enjoy the forum
