That’s my M.O. , buy my kratom that I will take for the month , and get either the same amount ( If a exceptional batch) or a little more to put away . Never a bad idea to have a bit more than you’ll need for the month . During all of the ban scares I kind of went over board .... so I’m set for a while , the problem now is that I keep succumbing to FOMO... “Fear Of Missing Out”, Im always excited to try the next batch a great kratom from all the amazing vendors we have , ... it’s a problem I have ...lol.... but I’m cool with that B-) Once you get a collection going , it’s hard to stop ! Variety is the spice of life, and I love spices (L) :whistle: :pinch:

I had the same kind of collection when I was an avid ganja connoisseur.... I simply have switched over to kratom ! Kratom gives me the relief that no other herbs have been able to do .... quite miraculous!! I do miss the flowers but have taken a huge sabbatical from it , going on 3 years , I know it’s always there if I want , no FOMO with that one hahaha

Take care Canadian TW. :)
Life is better with kratom !

I don't see why a well established, and as far as i know one that is in this business for the good reasons, would try to make an extra buck like this. That would come back to bite their arse. Anyway next kilo i buy i was planning to get it from another vendor and i will stick to that

I always buy more than i use to build overtime a little reserve, I'll just keep doing that. I got a 2 months supply so far

Thanks for your input everyone :)

I got a similar email from a vendor that I have actually never ordered from. I have decided that I never will order from them. I feel like preying on people's fear and stress is a rotten sales strategy, and I'd like to say thank you to other vendors for keeping a level head and giving sound advice.

We are not seeing any shipping issues at this time. Sounds like it might be an easy way for them to boost sales by getting folks to panic buy :unsure: We're getting a few extra shipments on the way just in case but again, there has been no mention of closing imports off. It's always a good idea to have a little extra on hand, but I personally wouldn't worry and go stock up a basement full of Kratom.

My only suggestion is to maybe allow a few extra days from whoever you order from, just in case the postal service gets backed up. We aren't seeing delays with USPS at all but with everyone stocking up on random items like toilet paper, you never know. :P

Stay safe and have a great weekend! ~Gina

I’m with Christopher and Paul ... as far as I know there’s no talk of shutting down the mailing / delivery system .

I personally haven’t heard anything regarding Usps being shutdown , another vendor I was talking said that he feels the mail will keep on delivering and hasn’t had news to say otherwise .

No need to panic or stress imo, but it’s always a good idea to have a buffer , no need to spend tons of money , this virus will pass soon enough , I always like to have extra on hand no matter what’s going on though lol, never a bad thing ! on that note , always good to be prepared but it’s not necessary to get massive amounts . A extra kilo or two ... depending on your dose frequency and needs is never a bad idea no matter what’s going on in the world , again, that’s just the way I roll !!!

Much love and respect to all of you out there , I suggest trying to keep clear of stress as much as possible .... it’s a concern but try to not let the stress consume you , love up your family /tribe , keep cultivating happiness!

We are here to help/ support anyone who wants to talk about what’s happening,

Christopher posted a article about the benefits of kratom against this virus some days ago , kratom is a great ally to have on hand and in the herbal chest ..

Much love , we will get through this (L)
Life is better with kratom !

I've heard of no problems and I'm pretty plugged in with growers and legality advocates over there. This sounds like a common ploy of vendors and farmers to get us to stock up.

I'll let you know if I hear anything, but disrupting trade seems to be something the Trump administration is trying to avoid.

Good question to consider, but it sounds suspiciously like a vendor or farmer trying to drum up some extra sales. Never hurt to keep some extra in supply if you can get it for a reasonable price, though!

Dear community,

I received an email from my vendor saying they are anticipating serious disruption in their ability to source kratom and postal services might be shutting down, suggesting we should stock up.

Does anyone have info to corroborate this? How long could it last if it happens?
