Just a message to those checking out this forum who normally post on Reddit. (Redditors)

BTW I'm just a regular user of the Forum and not a Moderator so excuse me if I'm being presumptuous in making this post.

Unlike Reddit this forum encourages you to talk about Vendors and your experience with different types of Kratom. There is also a section with Forum approved Vendors but they don't have to be approved for you to post. I came here because they took all the fun out of Reddit by banning source/vendor talk.

The best spot to post about a vendor is in the " Find A Vendor / Rate a Vendor" forum.

I've been sporadically here on this Forum for around a year and I have to say that this is a nice friendly place to go.

Also this is a great place to find new vendors and you don't get the Schills that you saw on Reddit.
I'd like to see it get a little more activity So Redditors are welcome.

Great post!

I’d like to clarify that vendor talk of UNAPPROVED ILK Vendors is limited to only the section you mentioned above.

It’s not cool to tell us how great so and so is just ANYWHERE. The APPROVED ones can be mentioned ANYWHERE.

The APPROVED VENDORS go through a lot of red tape to get listed here. Their reward is to have members NOT carry on about the competitors on the same thread, etc.

It works out nicely enough so EVERYONE can mention ANYONE and the approved vendors are treated to being able to interact here with members. Which is REALLY cool.

Kratering, THANK YOU for the thread! As facebook pages go down and Reddit also has limits, we are seeing a lot of new members and hopefully everyone can just be mindful about where they post.

Thanks for the clarification Laurie. Totally reasonable and liberal to confine unapproved vendors to one section.

I've bought from 2 Ilk approved vendors recently and customer service was topnotch.

please spill kratering… since its allowed here. I have one vendor I just got a shipment from recently and the hubby loves it. I like it too! I am part of Oregon kratoms compassionate assistance program too but I like to mix up strains/ vendors to keep things fresh for both of us.

I'm on she sideline I'm not sure if the Kratom that I got in from the two approved vendors is as good as the Kratom I've been buying.

It could be getting accustomed to it and the new strains or it could be just mediocre. I'm not willing to hurt a vendors reputation until I'm sure.

I just posted my favorite stuff on this thread.

I wonder if you are using the same size doses for both. That could pose as a problem. You might be using an inappropriate dose size for the new one based on history with the old one? I tend to think I need a larger dose size than I actually do. My mind likes to see me eat more powder. LOL

Either way, you sound unhappy. That’s not the goal. If you got it from an ILK approved vendor, email them about a refund for the unused stuff. That’s not going to make you happy until you get the stuff you are happy with. Many ILK vendors guarantee satisfaction or money back.

I just have to do some more experimenting. I have a somewhat scientific mind which is hard when you are dealing with an semi scientific compound like Kratom.

I was very happy with the customer service of both the approved Vendors. I'm just not ready to recommend the quality of the products

I only mentioned my possible quality issue because I didn't want to be unfriendly to Michelle 373 who said "please spill kratering"

I cap all my Kratom and consequently am very precise with my doses. I also capped everything ahead of time which took alot of hours, so it wouldn't be appropriate to ask for a refund.

Hope things work out better as the day goes. We still wantcha to spill it.

Thanks kratering

EDIT: clarification after coffee:
actually, I get it. Two ILK vendors are not working for you the way the stuff from link you posted. Time will tell, and we appreciate your diplomacy and support while your thoughts will be appreciated after more testing
