Introduction to Okie Kratom
Listen up, I’ve been using Kratom for some time now and have reviewed almost all the different strains in the market and a majority of the vendor out there. I would like to think that I’m more than familiarized with the industry. However, every now and then, I find myself surprised with new Kratom information and products. Like did you know there is a Pink Thai Kratom strain? I saw someone mention that Okie Kratom has a Pink Thai, and this captured my attention because I had never heard of it before. It’s tough keeping up, and yet I’ve been doing this for well over five years now. I can only imagine the hell that new Kratom users are going through.
New Kratom vendors pop up almost every other week. You’d say there is nothing wrong with that until you realize that some of them are just out to score high in revenues without the slightest care of the effects their products are having on the users. Some of the vendors are not even “new,” but rather, they are just rebranded in attempts to run away from their dark pasts.
Recently, my attention was drawn to Okie Kratom. A vendor claiming to be selling high-quality Kratom strains at affordable prices. But don’t they all claim the same thing? So is there anything that makes Okie Kratom standout from the rest? Can you actually rely on them to get quality and effective strains while also delivering excellent customer services? Let’s take a deeper dive into what these guys are all about.
About Okie Kratom
Okie Kratom was started by Mr. Gary D. Blodgett. Gary was motivated to start his own Kratom store after experiencing one frustration after the next in dealing with the existing vendors. First, he explains that getting Kratom in his small town was a headache. Not many Kratom suppliers shipped items to the area, which meant he had to rely on the head and local sex toy shops to get the sauce. Unfortunately, his public career made it very difficult to purchase Kratom from these areas. He also had a tough time dealing with the metric system that is commonly used in the industry (grams). To top it off, he found that most of the vendors were selling bulk orders, which is very tricky for new customers because there’s a possibility that the strain may not work, yet you’ve already spent a significant amount of your cash.
These frustrations drove him to start a practice that can make it easier for a populace that he thought was neglected. That’s why the company allows you to buy as little 0.5 ounces of the strains available. It makes it easier for you to sample different strains without putting so much of your money on the line.
Okie Kratom has been around for quite some time now, but the weird thing is there isn’t much information about them online. You will realize that finding reviews on the company on Reddit or any other online Kratom forum is almost impossible. This isn’t necessarily a red flag, but it makes it extremely difficult to know more about the company’s practices. I mean, how can you tell the consistency of their products as well as their customer support if you can’t find enough user reviews for comparison?
The Okie Kratom website looks pretty good. The layout is amazing, and it all works to the buyer’s advantage. You can click on Products from the homepage to see all the items they have in stock. However, unless you are just checking them out, I’ll encourage you to scroll down the home page where you will see that the strains are categorized based on the vein color. This should make your shopping experience effortless.
They also have a dedicated Promos page. You may want to check it out for some discounts before placing your orders.
One area the company can improve on is educating its customers on matters Kratom. The product descriptions you’ll see here are basically disclaimers. They also don’t have a blog post or news section that can give you updates or inform you about the herb and the different strains. The only useful detailed information you can get about Kratom can be accessed from the Useful Links section, which will direct you to other websites. Having the information just below the strain you are buying is way better than having to switch between different tabs.
Okie Kratom has mainly Green, Red, and White vein Kratom strains. Some of the popular strains available include:
- Green Bali
- Green Borneo
- Green Jong Kong
- Green Maeng Da
- Green Sumatra
- Green Vietnam
- Super Green Malay
- Red Bali
- Red Borneo
- Red Jong Kong
- Red Maeng Da
- Red Sumatra
- Red Thai
- Super Red
- White Borneo
- White Jong Kong
- White Hulu Kapuas
- White Elephant
- White Maeng Da
- White Sumatra
- White Thai
- White Vietnam
Take note that the above are just but some of the strains available. They have an extensive list which we simply couldn’t cover. The best part is that they have all the big names and some new discoveries, which means that almost everyone can do their Kratom shopping under one roof.
They also have several CBD and other Botanicals such as Akuamma Seed 20:1, Akuamma Seed 10:1, Mulungu 10:1 Extract, Chaga Extract 30% among others.
Gary explains that they are committed to providing products of the highest quality for guaranteed results and safety. However, he has failed to explain the cGMP practices they are utilizing to achieve that. There’s also no mention of lab tests, and neither have they published results for any tests they may have done on their previous or current batches. That’s not a good sign.
On the brighter side, the few user reviews we found online painted a really good picture. For instance, one of the previous buyers – one KrateAndVape – had the following to say on Reddit:
“I’ve ordered very small samples of over 30 strains/blends from them. I’ve tried probably less than half of what I have from them. Of what I’ve tried, most have “worked” for me. Of what has worked, I could probably cut my doses in half. In some cases, 3/4 or 2/3. It’s really potent stuff. To name a few: Yellow Vietnam, Red Bentuangie (superfine grind), Yellow Saluwasi, and Green Thai.”
Okie Kratom prices are shockingly cheap. You can get a full Kilo of Red Thai or even White Maeng Da Kratom for just $80! That’s as insane as it is suspicious. Not every day do you come across a Kilo of White Maeng Da, let alone the Thai, going for under $100. You can easily find these strain in other stores retailing at double the price. How exactly Okie Kratom has managed to pull it off remains a mystery, but what does it matter if the stuff is working?
Shipping and Return Policy
Okie Kratom provides next day shipping for all orders placed before 5 pm. You must also make the payment before 6 am on the next business day for your order to be processed and shipped out.
On Thursdays, the cut off time is set at 8 PM. Any orders placed after that will be shipped on Monday and not Friday or Saturday.
They currently ship within the US, to Canada, Italy, and Spain.
You must contact Okie Kratom in case you want to return your orders. They will determine whether the return is acceptable before giving you the way forward. Any opened or used items are not eligible for refunds. The company does not bear any liability for shipping charges.
My biggest issue with Okie Kratom is the lack of lab test details, shallow product descriptions, and the unclear return policy. But those aside, the company seems to be really good at what they are doing. The product catalog is super extensive, and the prices are ridiculously cheap. For those reasons, I’d say they are definitely worth trying. You can even buy the 0.5oz sample, which is going for only $2.5 and try it for some time. If it works for you, you can go ahead and grab the cheap Kilo package because I don’t think the price will remain $80 for too long.
