The latest news on the Indonesian Kratom export ban is as follows. Recently on Feb 24 Indonesia department of Agriculture issued a letter to the ports and suppliers of Indonesia banning kratom from export. The agricultural department that issues phyto certificates has also been given notice to not issue anymore certificates for kratom export.
As of now there is no kratom being exported out of Indonesia, and we don’t know how long this ban will stay in place. This is going to cause a kratom panic attack and will also cause prices to rise. If you are a customer of kratom we highly suggest bulking up on as much as you can now before your supplier runs out. Most companies only keep 2-4 weeks of kratom stock, so this ban will definitely put some kratom companies out of stock.
We don’t know the exact reasons of why the indo kratom ban took place, but information has lead to government officials in Indonesia wanting control over the market. It’s been said that kratom export to other countries has become so popular that the local market in indo is seeing the product in street markets. Could the ban be because of taxes and duties? We have no idea, but as soon as we hear any information we will be sure to let you know.
If anything, this ban could be in place for years until officials reach some type of agreement on what to do. Until that time we advise all kratom fans to bulk up on as much kratom as possible until this Indo ban on kratom is released.
