Where Can You Buy Kratom – Playing It Safe

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.

There You Have It

That is our take on where you can buy kratom, the pros and cons of each, and what we recommend based on our experience.

I started My Kratom Club to provide a safe place to buy excellent high quality Kratom online safely, discreetly, and for a fair price.

    Hi there:

    Thanks for the educative post about Kratom. I am a great lover of tea right from my childhood. I have just being exposed to kratom and I haven’t try it yet. I am planning on experiencing this so called “miracle” herb for myself. I happened to hear about kratom which is more relevant to energy giving alkaloids. And now that I happened to see your site which provides me ample option of where to buy it I am happy, I’m going to bookmark your page and try buying Kratom as soon as possible.

    Thanks for the help.

    A friend working overseas gave me a gift of Kratom during his recent home coming here. I instantly like it, but unfortunately, the supply he gave to me is small amounts only and very limited. So, I am now thinking of buying online and having it delivered to me here in my country via a commercial courier. My problem is, this is not yet popular here in my country and may be mistaken by our local Customs here as something suspicious similar to drugs. Our current president has launched a War on Drugs, and I am afraid I might get suspected of smuggling something questionable. Will I have no problem having this pass through our port Customs? I will send you an email in a moment…

    Thank you for this very nice piece of information. I have read about kratom  through many online publications, heard about its numerous medical benefits.

    I have always wonder where I can get a good one. There are many sellers online but I don’t know how to spot the best. Kratom does not exist in any smoke shops here. I will try and source for a good seller with verse experience in the business. 

    Thanj you so much.

    This is quite amazing and interesting. Thanks for sharing this informative post on where to buy kratom. It seems I had heard of kratom before but don’t know the precise place. Actually, this article is really interested me, getting to know where I can get, some. It’s surprising to find out that I can buy some at the gas stations, though I will not like to be doing that. But do you have any recommendations for reputable kratom sellers online?

  7. Ranao April 6, 2019 at 10:24 am - Reply

    Your writing introduced me to Kratom which is a new name for me. I don’t have any knowledge about this plant. Because of curiosity I just search on google. Well, regarding this topic I think you are right. Buying Kratom from a local place is not a good idea. It is impossible to find out its quality. And also the circumstances you really don’t want to go. If you can get a seal product from an online shop, then it will be the best. But we should learn about the quality of the product first.
    By the way, thank you for sharing this valuable post.

    Kratom comes from a tropical tree. Its leaves contain psychoactive mind altering opioid compounds. 

    the herbal supplement is illegal in some states, 

    “If you go to a smoke shop and buy it and then use it, what’s the concentration? How do you know that? Did they test it? If I use it and I smoke it the same as if I eat it.

     If I use it and  I smoke it and I eat it the same day and mix it with alcohol is that safe?

    I had no idea there could be so many potential dramas, challenges and hurdles in order to buy what should be a pure, unadulterated herbal product. Thank you for sharing such valuable information. I am certain this will help many people to know what they need protection against, in both quality and unjustified expense.

      Thanks Josie! It is no doubt amazing how something so helpful can get such a bad reputation. Vendors and manufacturers can take shortcuts on quality and lack the proper safety precautions. It is good to know there are reputable companies to make sure this product is safe and tested.

    Hi there, 

    I’m surprised that buying online is one of the best places to buy Kratom. One would have thought the opposite to be the case. You never know what is going to be shipped out to you. It might be delayed in the post. Buying online is based on a lot of trust and when it comes to our health we are always extra careful. 

    • My Kratom Club April 11, 2019 at 6:02 am - Reply

      Absolutely Juliet. Buying online and even when in person involves a lot of trust. The benefit of buying kratom online when you’re familiar with the brand name is the price and convenience. Having to go to the local smoke shop where they sell bongs and drug paraphernalia is not the best experience. Buying online with a lot of good information and a community that cares is what we prefer.

    A highly informative post! Those who are unaware about the right place to buy, certainly caught in a fraud. It is very elaborately explained “Where can you buy Kratom?” with pros and cons. After going through the article, I become very clear that whenever I have to buy Kratom, I should head over to online shop who have every documentary evidence.

    Thanks a lot!

    I find your article very intriguing.I am very interested in natural herbs that can be described as natural energy supplements.I never heard about Kratom before,so I would like to see some articles on the benefits of this herb. I am concerned ,though, that apparently this herb is not availabler in Health Stores. Why is that so?

      Hi Carlos. Happy you found us. Kratom is available in many local smoke shops. Unfortunately it has been given a bad reputation because of this. Some consumers also abuse the positive qualities this plant brings to so many. Hopefully soon your local health store will carry this plant.

      Here is some additional information on Kratom HERE to learn even more.

    I’m looking for the Maeng Da variety of Kratom and maybe you can help me locate where I can find this variety. I have tried Bali and Indo Kratom during my recent visit in Indonesia and in fact I secretly brought some home. They’re good, but it feels like it’s lacking something or not enough when it comes to potency. I searched online and learned that Maeng Da is the strongest of them all so I wanna try it. There are many stores I found while searching online, but I’d like to hear from you where you are purchasing your own stock of Maeng Da Kratom. Or, maybe you can refer me to your favorite website if you have one.

    I must have to be honest with you, I am hearing the word Kratom for the first time,  when I saw the article at first I am like what is this? It interest me to read further, I have seen the links and as well read from the comments section on where one can get it, how ever I will be glad to see if you can put up an article on the benefits and probably side effects if any.  Thanks hoping to hear from you.
