BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND...
A few months ago we asked some of the Approved Vendors to offer some discounts to our community. A lot of them graciously did. We have been asked to bring those discounts back. The following vendors would like to share the love for this forum with you. I know we all appreciate it.

White Jong Kong-This Strain is all energy & stimulation. It can be overwhelming if you take too much. So you will have to be careful with the dose. Find your sweet spot with this one. Has lots of Motivation as well with it. Would be a fantastic morning strain. 88/100


Green Bali-Didn't get very potent effects with this one but still is a good Bali. This one would be more for the newbies who are trying Kratom out for the first few times to see if they like it because it's not overly potent or won't cause any side effects like the wobbles. Had a very smidgen of mood lift with a bit of energy. Just had to take a little more than the other two strains to feel it more. Not a bad strain just not very potent. 61/100


Red Asia-This Red one is a great slow building long lasting strain that is good for winding down at the end of the day. It has the perfect amount of relaxing qualities without putting you sleep. Takes a good 45 minutes before the full effects come alive. Excellent Red Strain in my opinion. 90/100


Kratom Quality 87/100
Customer Service 78/100
Shipping 97/100
Pricing 90/100
My Overall 88/100


Shipping speed is terrific with Kats. Took just under 2 days to get here & it was a coming across the US from a good distance away from up north to here down south. The quality of Kratom here is great. Just about as good as you'll get anywhere. The grind was very fine with very little taste. The selection they have is very big. They have 51 Strains last time I checked. They have Excellent Prices as well. Prices are great at just $90 for a kg, $50 for Half a kg & $25 for a quarter kg. They have sales on for a few strains when buying by the kg. Sometimes as low as $60 per kg. That is the lowest I have seen when buying by the kg without having to buy in big bulk amounts. I love their pouches as well. They are very very easy to open & seal back which is a big plus. They put detailed info for each strain on their site. They tell you that it's a 100% vein or if it's half & half of 2 color strains which is very helpful. Not that many Vendors do this on their sties. Web site was easy to navigate. They also sale CBD Oil. I very highly Recommend Kats Botanical if you want to get some great Kratom without having to pay hundreds of dollars per kg.

I’ve tried their product as well and highly recommend them also. Probably would be a good candidate for approval on this website.
Pretty sure they aren’t interested. Too bad. I agree with you, Max.

I was invited to a closed group on facebook for this vendor and joined just because I like to hear comments from other Kratom users. It is taking 3-6 business days after placing the order just to get it processed and they are saying 7-10 days to receive your order. That's seems like a long time just to receive an order. But their Kratom is pretty inexpensive if you don't mind waiting.

My wait time has not been that long. Ever. But I’ve only ordered a couple of times. One item was out of stock and I put it on my WISH LIST and was contacted to order as soon as they got my wish in stock.

Laurie, I think that's been going on for about a month. First Justin posted that he couldn't do orders because he had to change banks because of all the bank charges for e-checks that weren't good. Then he started taking orders again but people were posting about not getting their orders or getting emails telling them what was going on. Finally he posted saying that he was behind so it would take 3 to 6 days for processing and you could expect your order in 7 to 10 days. They finally put on their website that it was taking 3-6 days for processing. Hopefully, he will get it together and they will start getting orders out faster. I thought it was strange because I order from Christopher's Organics using e-check and never had a problem. If I order from Chris on Friday morning it's in my mailbox on Monday and he is also in New Jersey.

Thanks for the history behind it. I have had good experience with waiting for a particular product and the honesty about when it’s going to be filled is much appreciated over some that just take orders, stock or no.

Justin is a straight shooter. I only got on his list thanks to a reference from an ILK member.

I’m happy with honesty over good prices. They happen to do both. Good prices AND good communication.

Yeah, we ordered on Tuesday and paid $27 for expedited shipping. Well, I guess there is a 3-4 processing time before it is even shipped. So, it's Thursday and he hasn't even processed the order, let alone shipped it. You also are limited on quantity if you go expedited. Ugh.... Hope it's great since it sure isn't coming quickly. DONT PAY FOR EXPEDITED SHIPPING

Sorry to hear this news, BUT, WELCOME TO THE BEST KRATOM FORUM EVER, kimmymac11.

Usually the website posts status at the very top in red about challenges they are undergoing.

Stuff like this happens. Reminds us that being a vendor is NOT the easy money it once was.

It’s expensive as hello and time consuming to handle each individual order.

On the other hand, there are brokers who pay to have it bagged and shipped and they still don’t bother to communicate with customers (D’AKINE is NOT one of those, to be clear).

I still prefer honesty and I reorder before I’m out.. I order repeat stuff WHEN I GET IT, test drive it, REORDER.

Some vendors are considering automatic reorders. Any thoughts?

Sorry about your delayed order. I bet you’ll like it when it finally arrives. Glad to have you on the forum.

Thank you for the warm welcome! Yes, I have heard good things about the price and quality from Kats Botanicals. We typically pick up before we are out in the city but were super excited to try something different. I can certainly appreciate the challenges to fulfill large amount of orders. Stuff sure does happen! I wouldn't have paid such a huge shipping fee if it wasn't going to get there in a timely manner however and I guess I just missed the 3-4 days to process the order. My bad. Hopefully it will be worth it when I receive the order. I do appreciate honesty for sure and will give plenty of time if I order from him in the future. Thanks again for your input!!

Oh Kimmy I'm so sorry about that. I think if you are going to splurge for overnight shipping they should move your order up so that you receive it overnight. Either that, or not offer overnight shipping if it's going to take 3-6 days just to get the order out. Have you received your order yet?
