What is Kraken Kratom
Kraken Kratom started around 4 years ago. Since then, the company has garnered quite a big fan base for various reasons. First and most important is the quality of their products. As you may already know, quality is everything when you are dealing with Kratom. For you to get the effects, you need as quickly, and for as long as possible, the strain you are using must be of top-notch quality. This is one of the areas where Kraken Kratom has a distinguished reputation. The company actually boasts of being the first Kratom company that is recognized by the American Kratom Association (AKA) for their compliance with the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards. By adhering to these standards, it means that Kraken Kratom does not just have extensive screening processes for their supplies and products, but they also pay special attention to their facilities. They have decent sanitation control policies, and they also subject their facilities to rigorous environmental control tests to ensure that they are free from pathogens and other contaminants.
To make sure that quality is never compromised, Kraken Kratom uses two or even more laboratories to test their products. This is an excellent approach as it makes sure that no products are ever put up for sale before they are thoroughly screened for contaminants. Unfortunately, Kraken Kratom does not provide any details on whether the tests are ever done by third-party labs. We’ve always admired botanical companies that subject their items for third-party screening as it eliminates the issue of conflict of interest. If a company performs numerous tests to their products, but all of them are done by experts on their payroll, it’s difficult to ignore the fact that the results from the tests may not be as independent as we’d want them to be.
Other than that hiccup, a majority of users seem to be delighted with the quality of the items that Kraken Kratom has to offer.
Kraken Kratom scores really well in terms of product selection. These guys will hook you up with some of the best and most popular Kratom strains in the world. The website categorizes the products into two parts; Kratom Tea and Kava Tea.

Kava is another beneficial herb that is linked to a number of benefits. The biggest issue in harnessing the effects of Kava tea has always been getting it in high-quality. Kraken Kratom seems to have solved that issue based on some of the reviews of customers who have already tried the products. We’d also like to point out that some users reported that they felt mild effects of Kava Tea. Others said that they had to use it in high quantities to get the desired results. We are not sure whether this is an issue to do with quality or its merely different people reacting differently to the compound.

We didn’t see any major issues with Kraken’s pricing of their Kratom powders. The cheapest powder, Bali Kratom Powder, goes for $8.45 which is reasonable when compared to most of the other vendors. The most expensive Kratom powder we saw on the website was the powerful Maeng Da Thai Kratom Powder (Red Vein) that was retailing a $21.99. Again, the price seemed a bit reasonable considering its decent quality.
Things get a bit thick when you start shopping for Kratom extracts. These are much costlier than we expected. The prices here range between $12.95 to $49.99. You can find better deals if you shop around.
We also found Kratom tea capsules to be quite expensive. The prices here range from $15.45 all the way to $24.99. You will get free shipping when buying Kratom tea capsules, but even then, you can still get a better deal elsewhere especially if you are buying in bulk.
You can pay for your orders using a card or a check. You can also opt for the bitcoin option which comes with a 10% discount.
Speaking of discounts, Kraken Kratom has an amazing rewards program that can help you save a lot of cash on your orders.

Kraken Kratom does not have the best return policy in the market. First of all, any products that are opened cannot be refunded or exchanges. The seal must not be broken for them to consider the refunding the returned products. The shipment must also be returned within 30 days of receipt to qualify for a refund or exchange. The company also insists that they reserve the rights to refuse return request. In addition to that, Kraken Kratom will not reship any returned products.

The only downsides with the store are the lack of enough capsule options and the absence of crucial information such as dosage instructions on their blends. All in all, Kraken Kratom is a decent vendor. Their product variety is impressive, and their prices are also reasonable.
