Yes, these seizures are not that same nonsense of recent years. It’s more like September of 2016 where whole stores are being targeted to get NOTHING. Fortunately, our trusted vendors have planned around such potential disasters.

Small packages do seem to be getting through. It’s the big orders they are confiscating and some are destroyed. That’s the reason for the price hikes by some vendors.

Direct from Indo orders have been just as risky as always. Lots of vendors over there with junk - that’s not new.

Inland did get their usual orders and I’m working on getting them approved on this site soon!
I’m sorry to discourage you on direct ordering, Wolverine. I do sympathize. The vendors do, too.

Don’t forget to email them to inquire about discount codes and/or free samples before you complete your order! :-)

I have found two vendors that have very good and similar kratom with reasonable prices.
I wanted to make sure because I’ve seen seizures posted since several years ago.
I’m going to stick with same vendors for a while and I want to try inland kratom.

Wolverine, this is unfortunately true and has been discussed at length since Thanksgiving.

Purchasing directly overseas is not recommended for various reasons.

Namely, there is no protection if you get ZIP NADA for your money, as well as lack of proof of safe handling, among other reasons.

Prices HAVE gone up with the vendors IN SOME CASES to help cover the extra cost of lost inventory being seized or just held and delayed for no legal reason.

SOME vendors on this site are EATING their extra costs of lost product, whereas others are not.

You are welcome to shop where you wish. You might be fine. Who knows?!

It certainly doesn’t help the cause of keeping kratom legal by skipping over the vendors who have been in business for YEARS. But it’s cheaper to buy direct.

I’ve had samples sent to me from 4 vendors over the last 2 years and most of it was garbage (no alkaloids. Did you know the majority of kratom trees DO NOT HAVE the alkaloids we enjoy? Our vendors have connections on the ground who can tell the difference. It’s not a visible issue. Looks and smells like kratom and IT IS.)

Let us know how it goes.

I’ve read Kratom is being seized and some vendors are raising prices.
There’s over seas vendors I’m interested in trying but if it’s being seized in customs I’m very weary on whether to take that chance.
What have others heard and if you’re over seas vendor have you had any shipments seized?
