I’m also on a wean and a bit grumpy. Thanks for the post, CD!

Sorry to hear about the employment situation. Talk about stress!

Maybe a BBQ or customer appreciation day in person!
We will have to plan and get a permit for that here in town, but a very good idea for spring.
Adding to that...as an owner of a kratom business that has gone through extensive restructuring to be 100% in Compliance with the Kratom Consumer Protection Act cost a lot of time and money. I get paid the same rate as my 3 employee's do every 2 weeks. We had to borrow and reinvest into a lot for the future of kratom. We are probably the smallest out of any A.K.A. Approved Vendor and really struggle to stay afloat. The cost to run this business correctly is very high and testing alone takes a huge chunk. Workman's Comp Insurance, W-2 Employee's , Payroll Tax and general tax all comes into play. Hopefully that sheds light on some aspects of the business?

I really hope my post didn't come off the wrong way now that I re read it. You guys are great vendors, but I was just dry and constantly had shipping/payment problems last week and i'm on a taper from a high dose.....not to mention broke between jobs LOL. I was really concerned that I would be dry and have to go without for a bit, but i'm fine now. I don't want to make it seem like i'm bad mouthing you guys at all, because the truth is, you guys actually gave me plenty of discounts before and your quality was the best i've received yet.

I remember buying like 5 kilos from you guys when i had the money just to stock up, so you know i'll be back around when I have the money :-bd

I apologize.

Yes a lot of US Vendors Sale Kratom to help other Kratom Users who are in Need of it for Pain Relief, Depression, Anxiety etc. The really high priced Vendors only Sale it to Make Money. The ones that Sell it for like $400 KG or more & they still aren't making a ton of Money.

Nobody hears about how MANY vendors have been embezzled from while trying to have a HUMAN do processing and tracking. Scammers swooped in and stole an entire season of sales from many well known vendors.

Customers think kratom vendors make nothing but money and that has not been the case in YEARS when only a few vendors existed and the competition was zero and labor costs were ALL YOU HAD. Product sold in sandwich bags with some “TMD” identifier written on the bag and NUTHIN ELSE.

Those days are gone and vendors do NOT make money hand over fist as some still wrongly believe. I recommend a field trip (with permission) to your nearest vendor for a day to see what they go through in ONE DAY to earn a living and help others. It’s a HARD JOB and many have illnesses and injuries that attracted them to the idea of HELPING OTHERS while acquiring leaf for themselves.

Always insist on vendors participating in GMP to help avoid contamination from wherever AND for assurances that your product can be traced back if a recall were to occur AND these same vendors TEND TO anonymously donate to the AKA to help keep the leaf legal. Safety and service and self regulation has forever changed the kratom vendor income.
