Hey folks,
I'm kinda new to the site, love the forums so far btw.

I'm disabled and a web dev, and recently my ectopic endometriosis entered one of my lungs and heart. I've been taking herbs to treat my disease for years, and also have been planning an herbal site for a couple years, but now I'm finally going to finish what I've started, cause I love K and I need to work from home now.

My K site isn't anywhere near ready enough right now for me to try to push it on you, so no worries :-? I'm not doing that. It would be embarrassing if you actually looked at it now lol. :blush:

I'm having trouble finding real wholesalers. I'm finding a lot of regular vendors selling bulk, but at retail price still, but people are getting their products from somewhere.
Is it "a secret to everybody"? media.giphy.com/media/kuGxJyTQQAUw0/giphy.gif Lol ;)

I would like to find one vendor that sells K and other herbs, or a second vendor if needed, for things like kava kava, pedicularis, C.B.D. vape stuff - herbs that help with commonly needed things like energy, insomnia, anxiety, pain, mood (they all seem to be related). Even better if anyone knows of a vendor who will do herbal mixtures per order, like *UNAPPROVED VENDOR* that would be awesome.

If anyone has any tips in general for a newbie vendor, I'd really appreciate it.
I'm really just trying to avoid as many bumps in the road as I can.

Anyways thanks everyone, if you can offer any tips I'd really appreciate it.

Have a good one,
L.A.

Aloha PhoenixHerbal, and welcome to greatest tea forum around!

Im sorry i am not a vendor, and so im not sure on how to help with the ordering wholesale. Tho my advice would be this, Find yourself a trusted Indo Farmer. Why? because they are cheapest selling in bulk like that. HOWEVER. because you purchase straight from Indo, it does have risk. Potently getting ripped off, it could not get tried properly and get moldy by the time it gets to you. And the biggest one. It’s not tested. So you would need to pay and get each batch tested here in the US. which is why majority of us who are not vendors, don’t take that risk and just by from vendors who do testing before selling. And of course being a vendor, going straight to the source would be ideal. But for the safety of your customers, and The future of TEA, i highly recommend testing. Some do and sadly some don’t. Those who don’t.. well they aren’t successful as they could be.

And just to be safe. I would refer to Kratom, by either it’s name, or Tea. I’m fro, Hawaiʻi, and I don’t think it has reached our streets, thank the gods. But it is my understanding that “KL is actually its own drug. That caused some people to get hallucinations, and similar effects to heroin, and meth. So as to not confuse people. I would not refer to Kratom as “K”

Good luck in your future endevors.

Welcome to the best kratom forum ever, PhoenixHerbal.

Great introduction.

Tita808 brought up everything I would.

Perhaps I’ll add that importing from Indo directly DOES put your money at risk from finding a farmer on. Like Tita808 said, we pay vendors more to take those financial risks AND you never know what you will get from Indo. I’ve received samples meant to prove the product quality FOR FREE from a well meaning distributor and it was kratom leaf. But no alkaloids we require.

I also must reiterate what Tita808 said about referring to kratom as “K”. It’s not recommended for multiple reasons.

You might wanna try working WITH a vendor as an intern or a partner for a while to get the proper experience and connections you’ll need to start a business?

The Healing East.
They offered samples at this forum to help stir up American customers for their Kapuas line. I am not sure if worked out for them. but the samples were excellent, this was some time back though.
Very nice owners and I think I remember they own their own Kratom farm in Indonesia.

This is their web site for contact thehealingeast.com/
You can google for some of their social media presence if you like.
Their forum name here is livingbotanics.com if you want to search the forum or search the healing east.

Other than that I know very little about vendors who wholesale.

Thanks everyone so much for all your help. :)
I really appreciate it. Everyone's responses have given me so much info and resources to start with - I'm miles ahead of where I was. >:D

I will be launching my site in early July this year, and will return to post discounts for your help.
(I just have to figure out how to become a registered vendor on the forum. I don't want to step on anyone's toes. I know what it's like to run a forum. ;)

Again thanks everyone, =D>

When you’re ready, there are AT LEAST 6 vendors on the APPROVED VENDOR LIST here that sell wholesale at wholesale prices.

Give the list a look and you’ll find very good resources RIGHT HERE ON THE FORUM that will help you succeed with good prices AND incredible quality including meeting the (c)GMP guidelines and exceeding those expectations for safety, quality and service.

Check out the list and peek at the websites and you’ll be overwhelmed with options.

Good luck!
Laurie

Hi Everyone,
Thanks again for all your help.

I have to tell you that I have to change my vendor business name from Phoenix Herbals
to Serene Phoenix Herbs, because someone stole my business name!
Can you believe that?

I checked with my hosting company, and they looked into it, and within the 1 week I started posting online, someone took the vendor name, and bought the .com domain for it. Unbelievable.

Just because it had started picking up some attention on Twitter, and my friend had started up a GoFundMe for it. Now that's all being taken down of course.

So if someone comes on here with the vendor name Phoenix Herbals, it's not me.

But I'll be around here still, you've been awesome :-bd , and now I've got ALL the domains now for this name lol, more than I could ever need.
Absolutely ridiculous how greedy people can be.

Have a good one,
- NOT Phoenix Herbals
