Buying kratom can become a real nightmare, especially now when everyone is panicking about a potential kratom ban. All too often, newcomers to the kratom community will click on the first kratom-related link they find and order from some disreputable operation that’s peddling bogus wares.

That’s why we’ve made it our business here at Kratom Crazy to thoroughly vet each kratom vendor in the space and offer our readers detailed instructions on how to find the best kratom available. To be sure, we are far from the only people selling quality kratom at a fair price.

For those who want to shop around and see what there is to see, there are plenty of spots one can go to where sellers stock a variety of kratom strains, oftentimes from a number of different kratom companies.

If you’re a resident of LaLa Land, let’s make sure you get your hands on exactly what you want, whether it’s White Maeng Da or UEI (Ultra Enhanced Indo). Here are a few simple ways to do it.


There are tons of smoke shops and paraphernalia places all across the US that cater to kratomites as much as they cater to noot nuts (nootropics enthusiasts) or vapists (those hipsters with the giant vape pens).

Does that mean it’s recommended?

Hell no!

There is an inherent issue where smoke shops and headshops are concerned; you don’t always know what exactly you’re buying. In many cases, you’ll be able to buy bulk kratom powder, but it won’t have proper packaging, so you won’t know what kratom vendor it came from. Sometimes the bags will even be mislabeled and there won’t be any indication of how many grams constitute a recommended dosage.

What’s more, a lot of smoke shops stock kratom products that contain synthetic chemicals which can be a serious health risk. As with products like Spice, these kratom powders or kratom capsules are adulterated and should be avoided at all cost.

There have been several kratom deaths associated with one of the brands stocked by such places. I’m talking about Krypton Kratom, of course, a kratom product that was laced with the prescription drug O-desmethyltramadol. This combination made for a deadly cocktail that claimed nine lives back in 2010.

Naturally, these facts will not deter everyone from purchasing kratom locally, if for no other reason than buying locally makes things more convenient. If you need kratom powder in a hurry, you can visit one of the following spots:

  • Ark Smoke Shop
  • Blue Dream LA
  • Los Feliz Smoke Shop
  • Teagardins

Located in Granada Hills, Ark Smoke Shops sells bottled kratom from Experience Botanicals and Krave. Prices start at $17.99 for a 42 count bottle.

Blue Dream LA claims to have the best kratom in LA, but this one gives me major pause as they do not disclose the source of their kratom and instead label each bag with the name of the kratom strain and nothing more. However, Yelp reviews are overwhelmingly positive for this shop and locals seems to be satisfied with their products.

Los Feliz Smoke Shop is another top shop for buying kratom locally. Customers have called them a godsend and they’ve garnered more than 150 reviews on Yelp. Located in the heart of LA, they are known as the spot for quality kratom.

Teagardins is West Hollywood’s premier vape shop, but they also offer a full line of kratom extracts, atomizers and much, much more.


That’s right, with the New Year looming on the horizon and technology getting better and better by the day, it only makes sense to use your phone to find the best kratom in your neck of the woods. Just pull up Google Maps and punch in something like “kratom near me.” You’ll be impressed by the results that pop up.

This is especially true in LA where there is no shortage of glass shops, smoke shops, etc. You’ll have no problem locating kratom powder and kratom capsules.

For argument’s sake, if Google Maps comes up short, you can always turn to the trust site Kratom Maps which locates kratom retailers in your neighborhood after you punch in your ZIP code. You’ll be able to set the parameters for how wide your search area is.


To be sure, this is the least recommended method for buying kratom, but if you’re really hard up it’s a good last resort. If shops are dry in your ‘hood, you can hit up a stranger by posting an ad seeking kratom on Craigslist.

There are plenty of people who are used to buying kratom by the kilo. Some of these people will be more than happy to spread the wealth, so to speak…for a price. If someone hits you back and offers to sell you some of their own private stash, don’t be surprised if it entails a bit of price gouging on their part.


This remains your best bet as it is the tried and true formula for finding kratom from trusted sources. Sites like ours tell you where we source our kratom from, whether it’s been lab-tested for heavy metals and other contamination, and how you can reach us if you have any questions or concerns.

Here is a short list of the most trusted kratom vendors on the market today:

  • Cali Botanicals
  • Coastline Kratom
  • Gaia Ethnobotanical
  • Kraken Kratom’
  • PurKratom


There are lots of methods for obtaining kratom, but some are safer and more secure than others. If you’re looking to buying premium kratom powder or kratom capsules, buying kratom online is the most advisable way to do it. Whether you’re buying locally or ordering from an online store, make sure to research the people you’re buying from. Be safe, be smart and be well. Happy hunting!
