I'm in the US-West region. I've been using Kratom for about three years. I had a few surgeries ("C" related) and was on opiates for pain on and off for over a year. I discovered Kratom because I was looking for a more natural way to control pain mainly. And I have been surprised by what it can do and more.

I think it is gaining popularity as well, and I am really encouraged by all of the posts created by the community here recently. So I signed up. I came here looking for reviews and recommends. I think I might be leaving my long time favorite (Kwik) for quality and customer support issues mainly. We'll see.

I spent a few months on the Reddit Kratom forums recently (lots of shills and new vendors there), and have found some fairly horrible quality with about half a dozen or more highly touted vendors. It appears to many that flavor additives and bitterness are all the rage today. In my experience these are not necessary qualities for good Kratom.

I like Reds (Maeng Da, and Bali mainly). But since the August 2016 scare, it seems to me (my opinion only) that it is getting more and more difficult to find quality product. Especially with new vendors flooding the market every day with their super cheapo $60.00 / Kg product lines. I am finding mostly junk. Heck, I've even had two orders with high dirt content. I don't think anyone really wants dirt.

So, I am really looking forward to reading the reviews. And I appreciate everyone most, who have taken their time to write them for us. Thank you.

Welcome to the best Kratom forum ever, Ocholoco Bill.
You will find the search button useful for more reviews on vendors and jump in anywhere, you haven’t missed much. But we are no Reddit subforum.

Thank you all for the nice welcome! A special thanks goes to MadMax for the great vendor reviews which have been posted lately. You really put a great deal of time and effort in to this!

I placed a half pound test batch order with PDO last night, due to the number of supporting posts and reviews found on this forum.

I will be posting at least a couple of reviews in the days to come. Mainly for "Kwik", but also for any new vendors which I become acquainted with. I doubt it will be in the comprehensive manner (multiple strains reviewed) that Max likes to put his reviews in, but I will try to match the format.
