1. Should You Purchase Kratom Online or In-Store?

When looking to get kratom, examining online vs. in-store kratom is the logical first step. We also understand that in-store kratom might be unavailable to you because of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we want to teach you how to find the best kratom to buy for you. We’ll cover both online and in-store kratom products, as well as the pros and cons of each.

The Pros & Cons of Buying Kratom Online


  • Access the largest selection of kratom strains and products.
  • The lowest kratom prices found anywhere.
  • Utilize return policies that offer satisfaction-guarantee or your money back. Talk about quality control!
  • Contact customer support about any questions you have, including after purchasing kratom.
  • Browse educational resources and how-to guides that improve your kratom regimen.


  • Just one: delivery time. However, Kratom Spot ships all orders same-day, decreasing this potential downside to buying kratom online.

The Pros & Cons of Buying In-Store Kratom


  • No delivery time necessary.
  • See before you buy.
  • Possibly knowledgeable staff.


  • A limited selection of kratom products.
  • Generally higher pricing.
  • The possibility of lower-quality kratom strains.
  • Limited return policies (if at all).
  • Lack of quality control (if at all).

2. Vet Your Kratom Manufacturer

As you can see, when you purchase kratom online, the pros certainly outweigh the cons. The same cannot be said when you get kratom in-store. However, all stores are different. We recommend against buying kratom in gas stations or untrustworthy headshops. Just remember: online kratom retailers are much more regulated than in-person stores.

Regardless of if you’re buying kratom online or in-person, it’s vital to vet your kratom manufacturer. How do you do that?

  • Get a feel for their business! Does their website or store feel safe? Welcoming? Always check the “About Us” section on their website and try to gain a sense of how they do business.
  • Check for lab tested products! If a manufacturer cannot guarantee their products are third-party lab tested, don’t buy from them. Third-party lab tested products are evaluated for contaminants and other dangerous chemicals. You should always see for yourself that what you’re buying is, in fact, authentic kratom free of contaminants.
  • Examine their quality control practices! This goes beyond lab-testing. Are they actually trying their products themselves before selling them to you? Do they offer a comprehensive return policy if you don’t like your purchase?

When answering these questions, you’ll begin to learn if a manufacturer or retailer is trustworthy. Does Kratom Spot meet these criteria?

  • We don’t just sell kratom. We use it. Passionate kratom users make the best kratom vendors, as we won’t sell you anything we wouldn’t take ourselves.
  • All of our kratom products are third-party lab tested prior to packaging and sale.
  • Our website is consistently optimized for performance, easing the process of buying kratom online and contacting customer support.

3. Find the Right Kratom Products for You

So you’ve found a kratom vendor that fits your needs. But what kratom products should you buy from them? For new kratom users, the sheer amount of available products might be overwhelming. Fear not! We’re here to offer guidance on all the big name kratom strains and products!

For starters, we need to look at the “Big 3” kratom strains. These are:

  1. Red Vein Kratom: known to offer calming effects.
  2. White Vein Kratom: known to offer energizing effects.
  3. Green Vein Kratom: known as a hybrid of red vein and white vein kratom.

These are the three most common kratom strains on the market. You can also purchase kratom strains by region. All mitragyna speciosa trees – which produce kratom – grow in Southeast Asia. But some users prefer the powerful Thai Maeng Da kratom over the small-batch Bali kratom. It all comes down to personal preference.

Furthermore, there are a variety of kratom products, each with its own advantages. Here are the products we carry, as well as what makes them stand apart.

  • Popular Kratom Powders: offers the most versatility. Kratom powder is great for users who love kratom tea, as well as those who wish to measure a dosage themselves.
  • Convenient Kratom Capsules: pre-dosed, ready-to-take. Kratom capsules are ideal for users who dislike the natural taste of kratom. It’s also great for those who want a no-frills kratom regimen.
  • Powerful Kratom Extracts: powerful like nothing else. Kratom extracts are perfect for experienced kratom users that want to up the ante. These extracts come in powder form but pack a punch unfound in kratom powders.
  • Mouthwatering Kratom Shots: new, thrilling, delicious. Kratom shots combine high-quality kratom alkaloids with a delicious dosage method. Just chug and enjoy!
