Dragon Herbarium has developed quite a kratom customer base over the past couple of years or so. I was one of them but finally got tired of paying $20 an ounce for my kratom. I did some poking around with google and came across a kratom vendor based out of Corvallis called Herb Research that has a kratom selection very similar to what Dragon is carrying. Potent Indo, Sundanese (Sundance at Dragon), Emerald Thai (Emerald City at Dragon), and so on. The real kicker is that Herb Research has prices at least %100 cheaper. An ounce of Potent Indo for $10, or you can get a 1/4 kilo for $72 (about $8 an ounce). When I order kratom from this guy it gets shipped same day and is in my mailbox the very next day. Plus they always include some generous samples. Maybe it's normal in the herbarium business to jack up your re-sell price more than %100 but that really seems kind of dirty to me. I feel for all of the kratom lovers that are getting ripped off not knowing that the same product is available to them so much cheaper.

You should check out KratomNaturals.com too.

But we understand the need to buy local - and support it.

Full Disclosure: I work for them!

The absolute best I have found is www.treetopherbals.com . It is local and the owner is like the nicest guy ever. I do not work for them. I am a regular customer.

The Kratom at the Herbarium is very potent! The owner tests the Kratom to ensure the highest alkaloid content possible. Just because your getting more weight for less doesn't necessarily mean that your getting a quality product or even a good deal. The owner of the Herbarium is a very generous fellow and would not dream of ripping anyone off.

Yes, the reason is because Dragon gets much of their product from the person you're talking about - Ethan.

Something sleazy is going on here. I know the Dragon Herbarium from way back. They are Awesome people. I don't believe Bob or Wendy had a break down and changed their values over night.

I do believe there are "new agey" quacks who would like to marginalize independent alternative spirituality/pagan stores. So knock it off with "Dragon Bob is greedy" rubbish. You're only showing your agenda.

Two points have been raised that deserve a critical eye:

First: the claim "Ethan" sells the product to Dragon Herbarium wholesale. IF that is true, then Herbarium is keystoning, a standard in retail and it's Ethan, not Bob who is being unethical because Ethan is undercutting his wholesale customers. And apparently setting up Herbarium to look like the bad guy.

Second: the claim Herbarium has a higher quality of product. This contradicts the claim it's bought from Ethan. If true then it's customers choice whether to pay for quality or quantity, and op would have done better to go directly to Dragon Herbarium with these questions FIRST before posting a misguided and irresponsible "article" on topix.

Herb Research is invite-only these days. You'll notice he can't be found with a Google search, either. Glad I got in when I could! I'm tired of the places that market kratom like shit and aid in getting it banned. Or charge 20 bucks an ounce... what a crock. hahaha! It's always newbs that get caught in that trap.
A good portion of vendors get their stuff from HR anyway.

So for a girl who is benefitting greatly from the from the medicinal use of kratom, with a budget, how do I get an invite from Herb Reseach? Looking for a local vendor that won't break the bank!
