Where Can You Buy Kratom?

Let’s get straight to the point and list where you can buy Kratom:

  • Online Vendors
  • Smoke/Head Shops
  • Tobacco Shops
  • Gas Stations
  • Indonesia (Other Asian Countries)

The above are the top 5 and most common places you are able to purchase Kratom also know as Mitragyna speciosa. That’s the active ingredient in the plant shown to provide numerous health benefits.

Where Should I Buy Kratom?

I know that everyone can agree that you want to buy 100% pure Kratom from a place that has paperwork or some sort of proof where the Kratom has come from.

Online Vendors

Purchasing Kratom online after doing the proper research is what we recommend. Online Kratom sellers have a lot of experience in the industry. They know where to source the highest quality Kratom. We personally always recommend brand name sealed products.

Not all online stores are selling high quality 100% pure Kratom. It is especially unsettling if the products offered are sold in unmarked packaging. It is extremely important you are able to obtain packaging or paperwork showing the product quality.

Smoke/Head Shops

For many years now our local smoke shop down the street carried a large variety of Kratom. This is where we started buying our Kratom.

The brands were great and the quality was high. We started to notice that the more Kratom we purchased from the local smoke shop the more it was costing us.

The owner would tell the story about how his prices are going up. Telling us about supply and demand.

There is also that stigma that comes with walking into a smoke shop. I don’t smoke weed and I hate having to go into a head shop to get all natural herbal supplement.

Tobacco Shops

A few tobacco shops in our neighborhood stock Kratom. The brands I saw here were mostly unheard of but looked to be a solid bet. Once again the Kratom was very expensive and going to a tobacco shop for an all natural supplement just doesn’t feel right.

Gas Stations

Now it starts to get a bit scary when we are talking about buying Kratom at you local gas station. I have seen vacuum sealed bags of Kratom with literally no brand name label or ingredients. We saw just a sticker on the package that said Kratom.

There’s no telling if that was 100% pure Kratom or even Kratom at all. Hopefully in the future Kratom is regulated to make sure sure the ingredients is listed on the package.

Indonesia & Other Southeast Asian Countries

If you go to social media you can find sellers from Indonesia offering large quantities of Kratom powder. Many online vendors will purchase this Kratom and offer packages of this powder vacuum sealed. Others might take that Kratom and load it into capsules and sell them.

There are even Kratom users that will buy Kratom in bulk just for themselves. Below are some of the pros and cons of purchasing Kratom from an Indonesian Seller .

Beautiful green landscape in Indonesia


  • Buying in bulk is cheaper
  • You can find a large variety of strains
  • Some Indonesian vendors have paperwork on their product
  • You can sell it to others if you have the special equipment to test it and package the Kratom


  • You don’t know exactly what you are getting
  • Taking a chance at receiving nothing for your money (Fraud)
  • Package can be held up in customs for weeks or confiscated
  • It is difficult to receive lab tests from most vendors
  • There can be a language barrier

The above pros and cons show quite a few things to think about before buying Kratom from Indonesia or other Southeast Asian countries.

If you are able to find a good vendor that has great communication and a solid reputable product with test results then an Indonesian vendor might be a good choice.

It’s just very important to make sure you have a checklist in place of the potential pitfalls to cover.

Which Kratom Vendor is right for me?

Purchasing Kratom Online

I personally prefer to purchase Kratom from a well known reputable brand online. A company that has been in business for many years and who has experience sourcing the best Kratom.

Even when purchasing from companies you want to check their background story. You can send them an e-mail and ask them a few questions. See if they have a FAQ section on their website. Here are some questions you can ask them.

How long have you been in business?

Where do you purchase your Kratom and products from?

Do you have information on the particular brands that you sell?

Is there a guarantee on the quality of the Kratom you sell?

Is the ingredients listed on the back of all of your products?

Typical smoke shop where you can buy kratom.

Purchasing Kratom From Your Local Smoke Shop

The most well known and popular place for years was to drive down to the local smoke shop. That can still be your best option. The reasons below are why it might no longer be the best option.

  • The Prices can be extremely expensive and might not be stable.
  • The stigma of going into a smoke shop to purchase an all natural product.
  • Less of a variety than many online stores. Can run out of stock of your preferred brand.
  • It takes time out of your day and extra errand you can avoid by having it shipped to your door.

Other Kratom Vendors With a Physical Location

I strongly recommend staying away from gas stations, and standard tobacco shops to purchase Kratom.

You want to be able to talk to the store owner or person behind the counter about the products they offer.

If you go to a place that has a very small selection and the employees and owner don’t know much about the products then you don’t know what you are really getting?

Buying Kratom Overseas

The overseas option makes sense if  you have found a great vendor, with great prices, and you know exactly what you are getting. There is a  large variety of strains available and the prices can be very good.

This is by far not the safest nor the easiest way to purchase Kratom as an individual user nor do we recommend. I would say that this option is for regular vendors or the very experienced and well connected user.
