What Makes a High Quality Kratom?

Many vendors purchase kratom from farmers that aren’t trained to properly identify and prepare kratom. At worst this means you can receive a mixture of kratom and other plant material that could be harmful to consume. At best this means the kratom contains less alkaloids, meaning a higher quantity of bitter powder must be consumed.

When inexperienced farmers harvest kratom, they use the low potency parts of the kratom plant, like the stem and vein as well as the high potency leaf. Then, the kratom is dried in the sun, which further reduces the overall potency.

High quality kratom is produced only from the kratom leaf and is carefully dried under controlled humidity in drying shelters. Dried leaves are then micronized to a fine flour blend, making it easier to swallow. The result of this is a kratom powder between 5 and 6 times stronger than the average kratom on the market.

While high quality kratom powder is often higher priced, the increased potency means customers save much more money by buying high quality powder.

Which Kratom Vendors are Trustworthy?

Below are some of the vendors that we have personally used and verified as producers of high quality kratom.

What to Avoid When Buying Kratom?

Avoid strains labeled with colors that aren’t red, green or white. Vendors who claim to have other colors are often just misidentifying kratom, or have a plant transitioning from one color to another.

As well as not knowing exactly what you’re getting, there is a risk you aren’t getting kratom at all.
Avoid cheap kratom from unverified vendors.

It might seem like you’ll save money, but the reduced potency of the products means you’ll pay more in the long run.

What is Stem and Vein Kratom?

Stem and vein kratom is powdered from the less potent stem and vein of the plant. The kratom leaf contains the highest concentration of alkaloids, but many inexperienced farmers will include other parts of the plant, lowering the overall potency of the kratom powder.

Honest vendors will sell powdered leaf and powdered stem and vein separately. Many kratom users believe stem and vein kratom helps them maintain a low body tolerance to kratom. Although the effect of stem and vein on body tolerance has never been measured, there is mounting anecdotal evidence of this effect.

Many customers like stem and vein kratom for its low cost, which means it can be combined with more potent powders to make them go further. Adding stem and vein to your kratom powder gives it more pain killing properties and a slightly ‘fuzzier’ sensation.
