How to Spot Poor Quality Kratom

When it comes to buying kratom, you don’t want to cut any corners and go for the cheapest option out there. To get high-quality kratom, you have to be willing to pay a higher price and opt for kratom products from reputable sources. Unfortunately, some unreliable retailers or vendors sell poor quality, adulterated products at seemingly attractive prices. But the question is, how can you spot poor quality kratom and distinguish it from high-grade kratom that is all-natural and fresh?

Here’s what to look out for to avoid buying poor quality kratom for cheap: 

Discoloration of the Kratom Powder

Properly sourced and processed kratom should be dark greenish-brown but not as dark as coffee. If the kratom has a very high concentration of stem and vein, it might be browner in color. If your kratom powder appears black or darker than described above, this indicates a poor quality product harvested from old plants. It could also have been stored under improper conditions, increasing oxidation rates resulting in the darkening of leaves.  

Unpleasant Smell 

One of the most important things to look for when buying high-quality kratom is its smell. Kratom should not have a bitter or unpleasant taste, and it shouldn’t leave an unpleasant aftertaste in your mouth either. That means that you’re ingesting something other than what’s listed on the bottle. It could be a product containing unwanted additives. If the kratom smells like anything other than fresh ground leaves or dried tree bark with an earthy smell reminiscent of freshly cut grass, it’s likely not high quality kratom and should be avoided.

Lack of Lab Testing Results on Products

If you’re unable to find lab test results on kratom products like Maeng Da or any other strain, then it’s likely that the company isn’t willing or able to show their customers exactly what they are buying. Poor quality products from disreputable companies can be high in contaminants, low on potency, and may even be adulterated with other substances. That’s why such products are more likely to lack any verifiable lab tests. Always buy kratom products that come with lab tests carried out by reputable third-party companies to ensure the product’s safety, purity, and potency.

Poor Quality Packaging With No Expiration Date

Unlike high-quality kratom that comes in premium-quality packaging that’s tightly sealed, low-quality kratom is sometimes poorly packaged in plastic bags, where the kratom powder gets stuck on the inside of the bag. It can be difficult to scrape it off and use it. Also, there may not even be an expiration date listed on these packaging options either. Poor quality packaging means there is a high likelihood that the kratom powder will not be fresh or high quality.

Negative Reviews About the Company or Products

Another way to spot poor-quality kratom is through negative reviews about the company or products. If there are many dissatisfied customers, it’s likely that the products they purchased were of poor quality or they have some other issue with their order. Some companies only care about the money they can make from selling kratom for cheap and don’t put any effort into selling high-quality kratom products. They typically won’t respond well if anything goes wrong with a customer’s order. Avoid such companies and opt for established vendors.
