While there can be many differences between different strains of Kratom, one thing you’ll want to keep in mind is the difference between fresh Kratom and older Kratom. Does Kratom go bad? Not necessarily, but you’ll still want to go with the fresher Kratom. This is because, like all plants, Kratom – even the higher-grade product – will degrade over time. This means you’ll be getting fewer benefits from consuming it. In this article, we’ll be discussing how to make sure that you’re consistently getting the freshest Kratom available by maintaining Kratom shelf life, and why it’s so important to do so.
Buy Kratom From A Vendor With A High Volume
This may seem like a non-issue, but it’s an important thing to do. You might think it’s better to go with the smaller vendors because they likely grow their own Kratom in smaller batches and sell it, fresher, right? Not necessarily.
Vendors with high volume sell more Kratom. For that reason, they’re constantly replenishing their stores. This means that you’re more likely to get a fresher batch of Kratom from a vendor with a higher volume because they’ve likely replenished their stocks more recently. If you go with a vendor with a lower volume, it’s probably because they’re not selling as much. If they’re not selling as much, then it means their stock has probably been sitting around for longer, which means your product – which may have been fresh at one point – may not necessarily be as fresh as you’d like.

Keep Kratom Fresh
For the same reason, you’ll want to take note of when you buy your Kratom, and how long you’ve had it. As mentioned, Kratom deteriorates over time. So even if you buy Grade-A Kratom from a high volume vendor, the longer it sits in your house, the more it’s going to deteriorate. On the bright side, there are ways that you can store your Kratom that will help preserve it, thus enabling you to keep it for longer before it deteriorates.
How To Store Kratom
While storing Kratom, be sure to avoid storing it in areas where it’s exposed to air, moisture, light, and heat. This is because all of these contribute to the degradation of your Kratom, and could even cause mold to grow.
One way to keep your Kratom fresh, if you have the ability to do so, is to figure out how much you’re going to use/need over a certain period of time and then vacuum seal and refrigerate the remainder. This way, you’re keeping your Kratom out of the open air and maintaining its freshness.
A similar, albeit slightly more dangerous method, is to grind up the Kratom (you’d only want to do this if you prefer powdered Kratom) and store it in a freezer to improve Kratom shelf life. You’ll still be preserving it, ostensibly for a longer period of time, with the drawback being that when you take it out, you might cause condensation which could get into the powder and accelerate degradation.
