Ensure You Store It At A Controlled Temperature
Kratom must be stored in a dry, air-tight container that is temperature controlled. The reason behind this is that the Kratom herb is loaded with Alkaloid Mytragynine, making it an opiate agonist, which is what gives Kratom users a relaxing and sedated feeling. If not stored in correct temperature the Mitragynine will turn into Mitragynine pseudoindoxyl a rival to opiates.

You just need to ensure the room’s temperature does not fluctuate.

Just one drop off water in the powder mix can create humidity and promote the growth of mold; and if any mold starts to grow on the Kratom, unfortunately is is ruined and you must discard it due to mold creates bacteria, and you will be ingesting this bacteria if you keep the Kratom and use it once mold has formed on it. The best way to ensure this does not happen it to put your Kratom in a zip lock baggie and place the baggie in a jar.
Keep Your Kratom Away From Sunlight
When storing your Kratom, ensure that it is not exposed to direct sunlight. If you are going to be storing the Kratom in a clear glass jar, make sure it to not set the jar in an area that it can be exposed to the direct sunlight.

When storing in the freezer of refrigerator, be sure to remove as much air from the baggie as you possibly can; any air left in the baggie leaves for the potential of moisture and eventually mold growth. When storing in the freezer or refrigerator you need to keep in mind that you should not open the bag up until the product has reached room temperature; in doing so you reduce the change of the creating any condensation of the leaves.
Always, Always, Always Keep Your Kratom Away from Moisture!!
Kratom and moisture are worst enemies of each other. Even a small amount of moisture can spoil a whole batch of herb is allowed exposure to it. If the Kratom leaves are kept dry, they can have an extended shelf life; however, those dry leaves as well as the powder, can really “suck up” any moisture that is in the surrounding area of where it is being stored. Therefore, it is advisable to keep those dried Kratom leaves stored far away from any dishwasher vents or other areas in your home that may attract moisture. Keeping it safely away from any type of moisture, until you are ready to use it, will prevent the growth of mold and consequently ruining it.
Keep Your Kratom Away from any Strong Odors
Be extremely careful about storing the Kratom powder or leaves in anything that has a strong, unpleasant odor. Kratom tends to pick up any odors that are present in the surroundings of where it is stored. Refrain from storing in a damp basement (which you wouldn’t want to do anyway, with the chance of moisture exposure) or near any chemicals. These bad odors will leave your Kratom with a displeasingly unpleasant taste, which will ruin the flavor of it.
Keep your Kratom Stored Away from Oxygen
If you allow your Kratom to be exposed to oxygen it can cause the leaves to become stale. Even storage of the powder in a “hermetic container” can allow air to get in between the powder and container. Vendors will use a vacuum seal or a nitrogen flushing to prevent the oxygen from coming in contact with the Kratom. There are also bags available that absorb the oxygen in which you may store Kratom as well. One can achieve a “vacuum seal” at home by placing a straw in the corner of the zip-lock baggie, zip the baggie shut and then suck the air out of the baggie until all the air is removed.
Store Your Kratom Powder in Bulk
If you store the Kratom powder in a Hermetic container and there is only a small amount of powder in it, it is going to deteriorate rather quickly in comparison to a container that is completely full. To ensure your Kratom remains fresh, keep the container filled up, the more Kratom that is in the container the less chance is there for oxygen to get inside.
So now that you know the ten best ways to keep your Kratom at its freshest, you can buy it in bulk and save money. Keeping in mind that you should not buy more than you can use within a 1-3 month period, because storing it longer can diminish the potency of the product.
