Welcome To 2019, and The Kratom Vendor List, hosted on Saidit! (formerly the Reddit Vendor List in 2017.) Kratom has come a long way over the past two years. Good kratom is still great, but what has changed? Supply and Demand! Prices and Quality. And the # of vendors has exploded over the past two years.
No More New Vendors. Please! We've now got a database with over 300 "Online Vendors". Yes kratom has boomed, but it's also become the #1 way to make Big Money on the Internet. Anyone can build a cheapo website, buy 20 cheap kilos from Indo and become a wannabee vendor. Some last a few months until their PayPal account is gone, and stock runs out - Buyers should support vendors with reviews AND a history in business. Premium and extract products are always welcome. Backpack sellers are not listed here, but some offer deals, on small batch quality.
Prices Up, Quality Down? After the Indonesia Post Office stopped shipping kratom October 1st - many vendors ran out of stock. Then, we had a November panic for the second year in a row - This time it was Fake News on the Internet. Most vendors got wiped out, again - Just in time for the Indo rainy season - Most everyone has re-stocked at this point. However there has been a small price increase, around $20 per Kilo on average. We list Quarter Kilo prices, so those changes are shown under Notes column.

Welcome to Winter, End of Year, USA "Holiday Season" for kratom! Current State of the Kratom Market is this. The USA market has been going through many changes, affecting Supply and Demand. Shipping from Indonesia has been delayed, and the FDA "Shadow Ban" continues to affect many vendors, who are now forced to import by Air Cargo. Postal Indonesia continues to be on hold for kratom, which has disrupted export of small packages. We still expect this situation to be resolved, possibly in January 2019.
Import Changes to normal channels, has created a temporary shortage of kratom in the USA market. Currently we are seeing many of the most popular vendors, running very low on available stock. Therefore we have SPLIT the Vendor List: those sellers who only have 100 grams or less, Ounces, are moved to the Out Of Stock category. We will attempt to monitor current supply, and update the list ASAP. Note that recent vendors re-stocks are shown under Notes column!
Black Friday Sales are limited this year, as expected. The following vendors have posted a Sale Thanksgiving weekend 11/23 through Cyber Monday: All Natural Artisan: 10% OFF Red Bali (CODE: THANKSGIVING) - Legit Kratom: 20% OFF Sale Friday through Cyber Monday! CODE: BLKFRIDAY - Smiley Time: Sale 10% OFF $40+ purchase use CODE: 10OFF40 - And finally, Herbaldom: NOT open Black Friday, but is days away from their long awaited Re-Opening!
MANY VENDORS ARE CLOSED this Thanksgiving Weekend. Please enjoy a safe and happy holiday season!

Welcome to "Peak Season" for kratom! Summer is dry harvest time in West Kalimantan, Indonesia. Allowing one month for processing and shipping, vendors should re-stock this time of year, to import the best quality leaf... Buyers should stock up right now! Last year's buying panic of November 15 wiped out the good Summer leaf. Supply and Demand. With booming demand, Indo suppliers scrambled to supply US vendors last December. The result? Many US vendors had sub-par kratom at the start of 2018.
Fresh Stock is happening everywhere now. We attempt to verify, that ALL vendors on this List have current fresh kratom available. Any Vendor who has problems with stock now, is no longer in the game. Payment processing is another issue that has affected most vendors. We have removed several this month, who appear to be closing shop or struggling to stay open.
CODE Deals many vendors offer CODE sales on their website. Standard marketing for online sellers. Many good vendors prefer to offer CODE discounts, every month, while listed prices seem a bit higher. We show CODE under the Notes column for these. Buyers should sign-up for each vendors Email newsletter on their website. Get in on specials. Be a smart shopper!
New Vendors are good to find - New vendors try harder to earn your business. This month we welcome Seattle Organic Supplements, Seven Breezes Botanicals, and Smiley Time Herbals to the list. Seattle has positive reviews since opening their website in June. Seven Breezes and Smiley Time are the two leaders on MeWe.com social media platform. Both of these guys are delivering top quality leaf, and outstanding Customer Service on MeWe.
Backpack vendors are everywhere, it seems... But are they "real" vendors? No! because there is no investment in a business website. Backpack'ers come and go.. Here today gone tomorrow. However, you CAN find good kratom, buying from an individual Stash Seller. There are many good sources on MeWe and Facebook. Times are changing. Backpack sellers can import small batch goodness, and find some great deals. Maybe they are the wave of the future?

SOROS EMPLOYEE: Meet The Reddit Executive Who Is Shutting Down Trump Supporters - Big League Politics by useless_aether in politics

The article is obvious bullshit - Has the writer ever visited r/TheDonald ?
IF anything, Reddit is allowing and encouraging Trump supporters.
Funny how George Soros is the main target of right-wing lunatics .. Last I checked, George Soros doesn't OWN any major media stations like right-wing wacko Rupert Murdoch .. and George Soros does maybe a tiny percentage of media stuff compared to the Koch Bros, the Koch's are WAY out-spending Soros !
Obama's return just reminds us how he fueled the distrust that led to Donald Trump by voter in politics
So somehow Obama is now, to blame for President Clown being elected? IIRC he pretty much sat on the sideline, while the DNC screwed Bernie and nominated Hillary.
And blaming Obama for American's mis-trust of Big Government, how old is this writer around 19 ? Might wanna check back 35 years to Ronald Reagan..
Americans have been hating on "their" government since Reagan. And getting snookered by the Republicans who allow huge corporations to run amok, rob, steal, plunder at will. Thanks a lot Ronnie. And how about good ole' G W Bush.

July 15 Update: As usual, the kratom business changes month to month. There was another mini panic recently, as Congress passed several bills in the House that could possibly affect kratom. We strongly advise people to settle down and not worry. Understand how the process works, and follow the American Kratom Association AKA website for updates. Kratom is legal and affordable!
Vendors come and go. We are sad to hear that Sourced By Masochista has closed their website to new customers. Masochista was unique, a kind of re-seller offering samples from a variety of USA vendors. Like others who advertised on Reddit, her business may have been affected by Reddit changes.
Also we've removed a few more "Old vendors" who are having various problems, some temporary, some permanent.. Krabot announced they're limited to crypto payments only. Since the majority of customers don't have crypto, we'll put them on the back burner for now. Look for a new article discussing the current payments issue.
We'd like to welcome "New vendors" who have fresh stock and happy customers! Kratomatic is getting rave reviews on Discord, and offers Free Shipping at 50 plus. Golden Rule Botanicals isn't really new, however they're well established with a following on Facebook. A new feature here is the CODE tag under Notes. This month Golden Rule has 25% OFF using the code: BIRD25 at Checkout. Check it out they have some exclusive strains!
Welcome Back to Herbaldom, known for high quality leaf, announced they're back with a Stopgap Restock while they continue to work on expanded Lab Testing and GMP processing at their California warehouse. We are trying to follow the latest news, on vendors' moves into testing and facility improvements. We're optimistic that regulatory problems will be solved, and the industry can move forward, thanks to companies like Herbaldom!
Looking ahead, you're going to see more NEW kids on the block, in August. The kratom business is booming! We're looking at several newcomers who each bring something unique and different, to the table. Exciting times for sure!!

To be fair, Bill Clinton has also traveled to Epstein's private island.
Maybe we need a List of which world leaders have spent the most time with him?

Thanks for posting. Especially noteworthy, considering the very recent wave of corporate Google censorship on YooToob .. May 2018 thousands of videos were suddenly taken down with "strikes" out of nowhere.
In June, many of those channels were restored - with NO explanation for why they interfered. It was like.. putting out a notice, they can and will, take down your Channel and there's very little recourse or communication.

It's also argued the SITSA Bill cannot apply to kratom, since the Bill is very specific about defining Synthetic Analogues. But we're watching it and AKA attorneys are on it.
Yes, the SITSA bill has been floating around in Congress for a year. That "Alert" you reference, is for a Committee vote in the House today. So the final Bill is getting marked up & may get a House vote this week.. From there it would go to Senate. It's part of the ongoing fight, and everyone's watching it closely.

June 10 Update: The Kratom business has seen many changes over the past 3 months. Gone are Reddit reviews. Many USA vendors have lost their ability to process Credit Card payments online. We have added "Email" under the Notes column, for those who should be contacted by Email to place an order. Most will send you their Invoice with payment options.
That's a major change to the entire Online Vendor business. Almost half of all sellers now, DO NOT have direct CC orders available! So accordingly we have opened the List to "Private Membership" Email vendors. Visit website to get Email contact info. Others may still order direct through their website.
We have removed several vendors from this List, due to various circumstances. Some have closed, either temporary or permanent. Vendors who appear very LOW on stock, will not be listed.. Also there have been Quality Reports, FDA Recalls, and lawsuits. Those who seem to have a quality issue, or legal problem, will not be listed! According to the AKA, millions of Americans are using kratom with no problem whatsoever.
We'd like to welcome new vendors to this List. Why were they not listed before? When we first developed this list on Reddit a year ago, it seemed that several vendors were just over the line on prices. Also many had no history of legitimate reviews on Reddit, only videos on Youtube. We did not include some Youtube vendors, because advertisements are not valid customer reviews.
In regard to prices, we are not seeing rates change much, in response to the FDA media scare. Competition is as strong as ever! At the Quarter Kilo level, top quality Plain Leaf kratom powder, sells from .12 to .20 per gram shipped. Why pay more? Do the Math and don't get ripped. Of course, Ounces are more expensive and Kilos are less. Support vendors who have invested in their business, websites, and Quality Control.

One: State laws would be enforced by each state Attorney General, based on who shipped a product into that state.. Obviously any enforcement is directed at the vendor who shipped. Where the consumer heard about the vendor, seems immaterial. Naturally, online vendors want to avoid trouble & be very careful where they SHIP an item. A good example for this is tobacco. Many tobacco vendors sell online. That is against the law in Washington State: http://www.atg.wa.gov/ban-internet-and-mail-order-tobacco-sales
Two: Congress today, is debating several bills regarding the "Opioid Crisis". A big target for today's action is the Silk Road, dark web, trading of fentanyl and other synthetic drugs. It's a huge problem, serious biz... Understandable that saidit.net does NOT want to be a source, or online portal.
Kratom, otoh, is barely on the radar in these discussions. There is an ongoing debate with FDA, AKA, and other organizations. IF the Federal DEA status of kratom were to ever change, I'd be outta here.. Vendors would be gone, in that case!
Oh.. there ARE many kratom vendors, and kratom Groups, active on Facebook. Direct selling from FB is discouraged. However posting Links, and Info seems fine .. Example: 1 vendor has 8000 subscribers: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Katskshop/
You might as well be asking us to allow people to sell pot on here.
You might as well be asking us to allow people to sell pot on here.
No no no, Marijuana is ILLEGAL on the Federal level, it's a Schedule 1 Narcotic and has been since the 1930's. That's a ridiculous analogy. Pot IS much different than kratom, legally speaking.
Kratom, and other herbal / botanical products, or cuban cigars for that matter, may be illegal under some "State or Local" jurisdictions but that's not how laws work on The Internet. Unless you're going to run your website under the most restrictive legal environment out there ... lets say Mississippi, Indiana, Alabama.
Why stop there? People have been sued for all kinds of offensive speech too. All of those states BAN gambling too - you gonna disallow any discussion of betting on sports here? Promotion of drinking?
I mean ... I understand the Grey Market people connected to Silk Road / the "Dark Web" ARE involved in Federal crimes. There IS trading for Schedule 1 narcotics on the TOR network.. That's completely different from a legal medicinal herb which, has a following 40,000 people on reddit. Thank you.
Why demonize "Vendors" ?? Is there something wrong or illegal, with being a vendor of a product or service? Maybe you should swap the word "Business" there, and ban discussion on any type of commercial business whatsoever?
Again, selling a product or service online, is not illegal. Reddit WAY over-reacted apparently to some action by Congress. Would you mind explaining what has changed, was there a specific change in the law preventing any discussion of vending or trading?
The claim of Liability seems like a huge red herring. Let's say an Automobile enthusiast joins a forum to discuss restoration of Old Cars. Those people use vendors to buy, sell, and swap old car parts.. Those parts are then used to repair antique cars, which then could possibly drive and kill someone on the road ... Is saidiit now scared of being sued in this situation? Banning any link or discussion of vendors seems ridiculous.
We're discussing and vending, herbal supplements. There is a huge online community of people who talk various food supplements, herbs and botanicals. Not just kratom, ginseng, akumma seeds or Blue Lotus extract. There are bodybuilding people, sports nutrition, etc. All of these supplements are legal. Including Kratom. There is no discussion of marijuana vendors, or even legal cannabis stores, on the kratom boards.
Are you basing this on the "State and Local Law" situation? Could someone please explain that. IF the City Council, in Bumfuck Alabama, declares that wearing a certain type of hat is illegal - Does that mean the Internet / must comply with the Local law in Bumfuck? And so, you're banning Hat vendors?
SAIDIT had an opportunity - to be different than Reddit, to stand on principle. This decision could have waited - Is there an imminent threat of legal action? I'd like to know what prompted the decision.
How many people will remain here? We can "discuss News" all day on Reddit, Facebook, and other forums that have WAY more interesting people to talk with. Thank you.
Kratom Vendors - Introduce Yourselves Here! by kratomite in kratom
Well, appears the party is over here ... Saidit.net has backed down, and announced they'll be acting just like Reddit. Censoring legal vendor discussion. They've banned the s/Greymarket sub here for starters, and Greymarket was like the only active sub on Saidit ... sad. Bye Bye.
