Traveling overseas with Kratom
You will find that there are import taxes that must be paid upon entry into the country. The paperwork from the US authorities is very cryptic and open for interpretation. Researching the import costs beforehand is a good option. This is an option whether you travel to Asia or simply work with a supplier based in an Asian country.
Monetary conversions will also be difficult when dealing with countries that have economic stability problems. Language will also pose a barrier to you especially when bartering on the price of their product. The quality of the product you receive can also be in question when dealing with someone who is thousands of miles away and does not speak your language.
The international market is not stable in this case. Countries have outlawed this product in the past and in some places it is severely regulated. Many countries use this product as a means to assist addicts with the withdrawal from opiates and methamphetamine. Although it is also very addictive it is said to be on the level of a caffeine addiction.
You can also purchase this herb from American based companies. The internet is a good source of referral and you can check on the reliability and reputation of the company. The product usually comes in powdered form and is sold in half and full kilo packages. The variety will vary dependant upon where it was grown and the type of plant it comes from. The price you pay will be dependant on these and other factors such as market value.
By purchasing from a company based in the United States you can avoid all of the hassle that goes with importing it yourself. The worst you can expect will be a lengthy disclaimer that they will want read and signed. This disclaimer relieves them of all responsibility for how you use this product or the effects it may have on your customers.
You must be twenty one to purchase kratom from companies in the United States. Indiana is the only state that has passed a law against it and the law specifies only a byproduct of the plant not the plant itself or it's leaves. That law was later amended to state that you must be eighteen to purchase it. There are however several countries that strictly prohibit it's use or possession.
You may wish to cut out the middle man when deciding where to purchase wholesale kratom and thereby save some money. The other option is to purchase it in the US and avoid a lot of the trouble and expenses that come with importing it and dealing with foreign countries. Both methods have issues. You can decide which to deal with.
