Hey everybody,

Over the last 7 years this forum has grown exponentially. With your help, We have created a community of Kratom enthusiasts to come together and discuss the industry. The traffic that this site has received has been exciting but also overwhelming. All the while the site grew a little out of date. Over the last few weeks we have updated the platform of the Forum as well as the face of the forum. CHECK OUT THAT NEW LOGO!!! sweet right?!


We could use your help though...

We have an APPROVED VENDOR LIST (see INDEX under VENDORS on a bigger screen than a phone). I’ve tried almost ALL of the ILK vendors. They are ALL above par. Prices range from reasonable to crazy, depending. So shop around. KratomCrazy WAS on the APPROVED VENDOR list here. But some unhappy reviews rolled in and were not resolved with the customers. Some of their comments are in threads here from that. Is was within the past year and a half, I believe. Do a SEARCH for more on what the customer concerns were. The community is very fluid and they could be fantastic now. Pretty sure it was more about customer communication rather than product related issues.
Good shopping to you. That Belize Question is interesting!

Seeing adds like that mean they are investing mostly in marketing which means their product is probably gonna cost more. Aggressive marketing tells me the product isn't good enough to sell it's self IMO. Word of mouth carries more weight.
Kratora was my first vendor. Great product and shipping, thankfully they didn't sell anything larger than 4oz so after looking for bulk I realized I was paying way way to much. Still have 8 oz in storage of the 2016 green malay which is one of my top 3 favs for long lasting relief and mood lift. I do not feel butt hurt but more of a lesson learned. I am one of those people that find buying bulk saves the most money in the long run unless it's a unstable product so I often try to get as close to the source as possible or DIY.
One important note is recently, reviews or trades can no longer be done on reddit and much of the community has been slightly scattered because of that. Honestly there has always been the suspicion that r/kratom was run by certain vendors. Any start ups or competitors have been banned in the past. Guess Karma has come full circle.

Hey all. I am not a member of this forum but feel like my bad experience with PurKratom is worth sharing.

I ordered from Purkratom six months ago on a whim and got burned. Their prices are outrageous and the Green Malay I recieved was a complete waste of my money. On their websites it states that they have a return policy, but other than an automated message, I never received a response back from them. I can not speak for any of the other strains but I personally would not recommend ordering from them.

Welcome to the best kratom forum ever, Kratomreviewer!

Hope you find the forum discussions worthy of hanging out to gather positivity for your future purchases. Some of the finest kratom vendors are members of the ILK forum and the very finest kratom customers are here discussing the journeys.

Yours would be welcome also! Besides the recent lesson. The ILK Vendors are vetted for quality, safety and secure purchasing and all take particular pride in customer service because they are also chronic pain patients or have been.

Stick around maybe? You signed up, so you’re now a member!

I have vendors I could review, but they are relatively new or they are not on the ILK trusted vendors list. To motivate vendors to apply to be trusted vendors here, they would probably want to see more reviews of ANYTHING since it will demonstrate an active community.

Agreed!

Plathian,

I’m hoping the link I attach sends you to the right area of the forum for reviews, unapproved vendor discussion:

www.ilovekratom.com/forum/rate-a-vendor

If that link doesn’t work right, please go to INDEX, then to VENDORS, then to FIND A VENDOR / RATE A VENDOR.

Although it’s not yet clear in our guidelines (yet), that area is for all such discussions.

Thanks for bringing that up!

I’m happy to report that two vendors are also in the review process at this time. The vendor list will obviously grow as the product has become more well known.

More suggestions on how to handle this without becoming a free-for-all advertising forum are greatly appreciated! It’s important to keep in mind the current vendors and new additions have been vetted by ILK for going to extra lengths that not every vendor wishes to for any number of reasons. The issue is NOT for limiting discussion on such an evolving topic.
