An introduction to YoKratom
More and more people are getting interested in Kratom, and for good reasons. It would be irresponsible to dismiss all the testimonials of people who swear that Kratom has changed the overall quality of their lives, for the better.
Going by the scientific name of Mitragyna Speciosa, Kratom is a type of evergreen herb that is native to Southeast Asia. For centuries, natives to that region have been chewing on the herb’s leaves for its immense benefits. It is only recently that the rest of the world has caught on.
Today, people use Kratom for various reasons. Some use it as pain medication, others to calm their minds, and relieve stress, while others use it for stimulation purposes. Whatever purpose you use Kratom for, it has been found to be more effective than other substances used for the same purpose. Additionally, Kratom has no side effects.
Another thing to note is that Kratom comes in different strains, and the one you go for, therefore, will be determined by the needs that you are looking to satisfy.
When Kratom initially hit the western market, most of it was of a high quality, which is why it gained so much fame since quality Kratom is what you need if you are going to get its benefits. However, as the demand for Kratom increased, so did the number of vendors looking to fill that gap. Unfortunately, most of these vendors are illegitimate and sell products that not only fail to yield their intended effects but can also result in adverse side effects.
As such, if you are looking to start using Kratom, you need to be extra careful about who you purchase it from.
Are you wondering whether YoKratom is a good vendor to get your Kratom from? Read on to find out.
Who is YoKratom?
YoKratom is one of the smaller names in the Kratom industry. Popularity should not always be an indicator of legitimacy, but one cannot deny the fact that companies that have stellar products tend to be more popular. Nonetheless, YoKratom was only founded in 2018, and, therefore, they still need more time to build a reputation.
One thing that made us raise our guard concerning this Kratom vendor, however, is that they do not give us details about who they are or where they are from. This is disturbing, especially considering the sensitive nature of the products they are selling. Being so discreet about yourself comes across like you are trying to hide something, which is not good if you are looking to cultivate trust.
Nonetheless, the company has made a name for itself due to the low prices at which it sells its products. Being cheap can be either a good thing or a bad thing, which we shall discuss later.
Should You Buy From YoKratom?
In order to determine whether they are a good vendor, we shall vet the company based on the following factors:
- Website Interface
Believe it or not, you can actually tell whether a vendor is legit or not just by looking at their website. A legitimate vendor is serious about their business and will, therefore, go out of their way to ensure that the customer has a seamless purchasing experience. This means that their website loads fast is easy to navigate, and is informative. As you can imagine, this takes a lot of work, which is something that unscrupulous vendors do not have the time for.
Therefore, if you are having a hard time on a vendor’s website, chances are their products are as subpar as their site.
YoKratom does have a decent website. It loads fast and is easy to navigate. Additionally, they have categorized the different Kratom products into subsections that make it easier for a customer to find what they are looking for.
The one problem that we do have their site, however, is its lack of information. They barely have product descriptions. The ones that they have are just generic. A customer needs to know the ins and outs of a product before they make a purchase. The lack of that information indicates a lack of effort.
- Customer Support
Again, when buying online, customers are usually vulnerable to the intentions of a vendor. If the store decides to take your money and not send you the product, there’s not much you can do but to rave online. Good vendors understand this and will go out of their way to reassure the customer as much as possible.
This is made possible through stellar customer service. A customer should be able to talk to someone from the company with minimal delays in response times. This is not only necessary for reassurance, but also in helping them to make an informed buy.
The level of customer support service, therefore, is one of the telling signs of a legitimate vendor. If they are easy to reach and respond to your queries informatively and with minimal delays in response times, you are more than likely dealing with a legit vendor. The reverse is also true.
Based on customer reviews, YoKratom’s customer support system leaves a lot to be desired. While other vendors have a live chat and other efficient means of communicating with their customers, YoKratom only offers an email address. Communicating through email is fine, so long as you respond promptly. Most of their previous customers, however, claim that the company rarely responds to email, and when it does, it is usually weeks later.
- Product Selection
Kratom comes in many strains, and each of those strains has enthusiasts. A good Kratom vendor understands that and aims to cater to all Kratom consumers. Therefore, one of the indicators of a legit Kratom vendor is that they have a diverse product lineup.
YoKratom offers some good strains of Kratom, that much we can admit. However, they have a really limited product lineup, which means that a good number of customers may not find what they are looking for in this store. Some of the strains that they offer include:
- Green Borneo
- White Borneo
- Red Borneo
- Red Maeng Da
- Green Maeng Da
- White Maeng Da
- Red Bali
- Super Indo
- Red Hulu
- Green Hulu
- Green Vietnam
- Product Quality
Being that Kratom is not an FDA-approved product, it means that quality is very inconsistent in the industry. Fortunately, there are some ways that you can go about determining if a vendor has quality Kratom.
One way is by checking if they provide certificates of analysis. A certificate of analysis is a lab report from an independent testing facility showing the details of their analysis and purity. If a vendor has quality Kratom, then there’s no reason for them not to show proof of that through those certificates.
Unfortunately, YoKratom does not provide or mention anything about lab testing.
Another way of knowing whether a Kratom vendor has the good stuff is by checking for reviews online. While it is impossible for any product to be appreciated by everybody, the positive reviews should outnumber the negative ones by far if the vendor is legit.
YoKratom has very little reviews online, and the ones we found were mostly negative.
Kratom vendors are often trying to strike a balance between providing quality Kratom and making their products affordable. This is because quality Kratom is more than likely going to be expensive, especially if a reputable vendor is selling it.
Unscrupulous vendors can get away with selling their products cheaply since they are of low quality.
Some vendors are in the grey area. Their prices are usually an average of the ones mentioned above. Unfortunately, most of these vendors are generally very inconsistent. On one day, they can give you the best Kratom you have ever had; on another, they could disappoint you.
YoKratom has ridiculously low pricing. In fact, most of their products sell at less than half of what most reputable vendors sell the same products at. While we would like to believe that YoKratom does that out of the kindness of their hearts, the negative reviews the company receives paints a different story. It seems as if the company is compromising on quality and trying to make up for it by selling their products cheaply.
Here’s the thing, if you want to enjoy the benefits of using Kratom, you will need to get the high-quality stuff. Unfortunately, good Kratom is hard to come by these days. Additionally, even the most well-meaning of vendors is inconsistent.
Therefore, the best way of ensuring that you get quality Kratom is to only purchase from a vendor that has a history of consistently providing quality Kratom. Their products will tend to be costlier than most vendors, but that is the price to pay for getting good Kratom, literally.
YoKratom is still new to the market and has a lot to work on if they are hoping to stay competitive. Our advice, therefore, would be to start with a sample package from the company and see how well you like it.
