Use it properly and you can manage withdrawal/detox from stronger stuff - I was so amazed and relieved when I detoxed this way! It is also an excellent pain reliever in its own right and can be difficult to withdrawal from if overused just like any opiate as @dingleberry says.
I am familiar with the vendor you mentioned skipper and they have been good to me. The link embedded in your post didn't get me to the sight but, for those interested, typing it directly into the navigation bar will get you there.
The only advice I can give is to find a good online vendor or two - skipper already got you started - and stick with them. I don't recommend using head shops to buy kratom. but that is just my one opinion out of many here. The main reason -for me - is the possibility of contamination or adulteration with research chemicals and the like. Good online vendors really take their kratom seriously and you can get the best, freshest kratom online.
I usually mix it with very warm to hot water which helps mask the taste and just gulp it down. It was difficult at first but I got used to it.
