Hey guys,

About to order some kratom soon, and my long-time vendor DG Botanicals is no longer in business. So, I'm looking for alternatives. I'm very experienced with kratom (10+ years), so I'm looking for high quality.

Right now I'm checking out:

1. The Kratom Syndicate (actually tried a sample of their stem & vein and was pleasantly suprised)

2. Mitragaia (I've heard mixed things)

3. The Golden Monk (everyone seems to be raving about them, but I can't tell if the reviews online are fake)

4. Herbal-RVA (reddit suggested, but their website seems a little sketchy)

5. Canopy (have no clue about this one)

6. Herbal Salvation (recommended by reddit, but the website seems a bit shady)

I've also heard that SoCal is good, but I can't seem to find their website. What's the deal with SoCal?

What do you guys recommend? Any standouts on my list, or should I be looking somewhere else entirely?

hey hidden!

the only one ive tried from that list is canopy and theyre pretty good. but if youre looking for top quality off our vendor list I suggest re-leaf llc ( maine ), insense/ gold leaf, COB -christophers organic botanicals, PDO- pharmacy dropout, tea time botanicals ( you can even get CBD enhanced ) inland, oregon kratom, natures cure and top extracts.

other vendors that are in the process of approval ( from what I understand ) that I highly recommend are oties botanicals, soflo, high sierra herbals and fused flora.

im sure we all have 'favorites' what strains do you lean towards? if you like blends re-leaf has some of the best blends ive ever tried. insense/ gold leaf and inland are stellar blends as well. another forum member is getting people to try Bennis botanicals. im sure awesome as well. that will be my next dabble!

I would sign up to get emails from any that peak your interest. you will be the first to know when they have a sale/ special. and being a part of this forum we get constant discounts as well. I just ordered from releaf.. theyre having a 40 % blowout. insense and gold leaf its ILKFORME15%
sorry rambling! ask away..

Hello welcome to the forum
ILK has the approved vendors list-
www.ilovekratom.com/kratom-vendors
Most are reviewed here-
www.ilovekratom.com/kratom-vendors

I rotate between these vendors
Insense/Gold leaf
Pa botanicals
Inland
Re-Leaf
Laughing Lion

Highly recommended and reviewed forum favs -
Christoper's
Pharmacy Drop out
Oties
Nature's cure.

I haven't ordered from Canopy recently - good for the budget minded
Herbal RVA= They have an awesome Gold Bali but its rarely available
The Kratom Syndicate= always heard excellent reviews from this vendor
Socal- I also cannot find their web site??

Welcome to the best kratom forum ever, hiddensynapse!

I’m sorry to hear about DG Botanical closing up shop because they had a regular list of customers and the following they had was dedicated and happy. Very surprised. I tried them once and they were very helpful and kind. The product did not work for me, but many people found it to be exceptional (we are all different, so I never judge a vendor product as no good - maybe not for ME!)

I cannot add much to the comments you’ve gotten EXCEPT Otie’s IS listed as an approved vendor on ILK and recommended along with the others mentioned. SOFLO is almost approved pending red tape for compliance with GMP.

High Sierra has not expressed an interest in becoming approved on ILK, but many vendors are GREAT and don’t get approved here.

I forgot what else I wanted to clarify...

EDIT: SoCal has apparently moved and a name change is underway. I’m still enjoying some second hand stuff from their 2015 batches!

Fused Flora and SOFLO are moving toward ILK approval as they advance toward GMP compliance (expensive self regulation).

That is all of the ILK detail. Shame about DG.
This industry SURE HAS EVOLVED rather quickly!

Sorry I am posting in batches due to time outs on ILK. I guess I’m too chatty and too slow (high pain evening after very well managed day pain via Red Borneo and Super Green Maeng Da from Nature’s Cure - not simultaneously but juggled with care - tiny doses). WITH CBD powder I got from a non kratom supplier.

I’m sort of making my own CBD Enhanced product. Thought it worth a try seeing as my tolerance should not be affected - anyone know if my thought rings true or not?

Socal moved to Florida earlier this month. They are still getting the new business ready. I am not sure what the new name is going to be.

Sad. I never bought from them directly but I’m still enjoying some second hand stuff from their 2015 batches!

Fused Flora and SOFLO are moving toward ILK approval as they advance toward GMP compliance (expensive self regulation).

That is all of the ILK detail. Shame about SoCal (and DG).

This industry SURE HAS EVOLVED rather quickly!

They are setting up their new shop in Florida.

Thanks for the good news on SoCal, Gmantheman!

I also take it back about never finding a bunk vendor. I had some shipped direct from Indo once (long story why since ILK cannot allow Indo vendors) and it was virtually alkaloid free. Tasted fine, looked fine, had all the classic names and colors. No alkaloids of use.

Though the market is pretty saturated with product, vendor quality of product and service is beyond excellent in most cases.

Who do you recommend, Gmantheman? Is Leo still hanging in there? You always have something interesting to share!

Leo (HB&Mco) is hit and miss especially with the red strains. Currently I am enjoying Benni Botanicals and PDO. Those two vendors I have been using the most for the past few months.
