    Hello All,
    I'm new to the board and especially signed up so I could get some well needed info on Kratom. I recently started trying it, and so far I've found it to be a plus. Bali has pretty much been the only kind I've tried.
    I tried to do a search on Vietnam Kratom, however didn't really find much info on it. I was wondering if anyone has tried this product, and if so, what are your thoughts on it? I've read elsewhere online that it is suppose to be stronger than Maeng Da.

    So any info you could give, or a review of this kind would be much appreciated...

    Ive heard nothing but bad reviews about it from independent forums. It is only the vendors selling it (and they are some of the worst vendors ive seen) that big it up.
    I would recomend you avoid it, or at most just order a small amount to judge for yourself. If you do then make sure to write a thread on it.

    While kratom probably does grow in places like Vietnam or Cambodia, which would seem obvious, i have yet to hear of a source vendor there who is supplying kratom to vendors. Usually anyone with access to something like kratom will set up shop and make a fortune on the open market. The fact that there does not seem to be anyone doing this in those locations makes me think that the people selling it are pulling a fast one by sticking the name on what is probably just some poor quality indonesian kratom.

    The fact that the people selling it are vendors that should be avoided makes me think its total BS marketing.

    I was sort of thinking the same thing. I'm not sure though, why these people would go as far as to say that it's more powerful than Maeng Da. that's a pretty bold statement.

    I will certainly write my own review if I do decide to get some. And will def take your advice as to not buy much at first...

    It's fairly obvious why they would say it's stronger than Maeng Da........so that people buy it from them. :)

    I don't know for sure but I would be about 98% certain it's marketing BS like our good man Ian says above.
