An overview of Serenity Botanicals
Organic solutions to different ailments have become very popular, and it’s easy to see why. No one wants to pump chemical medications with harmful side effects into their systems when there is a perfectly safe natural alternative that will get the job done while also delivering additional benefits. However, the problem with the market is that it is hugely uncontrolled. Anyone could wake up one day and decide to start his/her own practice. And there is nothing wrong with that except a majority of them do not have what it takes to deliver quality products. Some may have the resources, but then their selfishness will see them put more focus on making profits and ignoring the quality standards necessary to deliver safe and effective compounds.
Serenity Botanicals is one of the many herbal stores in the market today. They are a family-owned company based in Ohio. One of the most interesting bits of the company is its diverse product lines. These guys seem to have their hands on all the major herbal products. We are talking about CBD, Kratom, Herbal Tea, Essential Oils, and Organic Lotions, Skincare, Bar Soap, and Castile Soaps, among others. One would wonder, does a family-owned business have what it takes in terms of resources to run the various product lines without compromising quality?
Serenity Botanicals was started by Kimberly Ford and his husband, Jeff. The story begins when Jeff had knee surgery and was placed under pharmaceutical-grade pain management. After taking the drugs (hydrocodone) for so long, Jeff had a very tough time readapting when the prescription ran out. It’s at this point that Kimberly’s brother introduced them to Kratom, which turned out to be super effective in treating both the withdrawal that Jeff was experiencing as well as the pain.
Seeing how effective Kratom was, Kimberly also started using the herb for his joint pain issues, and depression. She also got some of the strains to deal with fatigue. The experience motivated them to get into a serious business, and today, they find themselves in a very unique position serving Americans with Kratom and a wide array of other products.
The Serenity Botanicals website is well designed, which is very important given the number of products they have in stock. You can access all the major product categories from the top of the middle section. The home page also has a section on some of the common wellness effects that people are looking for i.e., Calmness, Energy, Focus, Mood, and Relief. By clicking on any of these categories, you’ll be redirected to some of the best products for producing the result.
The website also features a blog post section that covers some educational pieces on the products in-store. For instance, you will find articles on what Kratom is, the legality of Kratom, CBD legality, essential oils, and herbal tea. I found the Kratom legality posts very informative. Not only do they discuss the current state of the regulations on Kratom, but they’ve actually highlighted the specific Kratom regulations of the US States, showing where the herb is legal and illegal. You may want to check it out before placing your orders.
One of the drawbacks of the website is that they’ve not categorized the Kratom strains. They are all just grouped together, so you have to go through them to find the one you want. Blends and extracts have separate categories, though.
They also don’t provide the finer details of the specific Kratom strains they are selling. The product description sounds more like a disclaimer, actually.
Serenity Botanicals have quite the number of Kratom strains. Most of the big names are available, so everyone will probably find the items they are looking for. Note that when you scroll down, it takes some time for more products to load. It’s easy to think that you’ve seen all the products (especially if your internet connection is slow), yet some more items may still be loading. Perhaps you can advantage of the search option at the top and just look for the specific strain you need. It’s more convenient, plus it saves time.

In all honesty, Serenity Botanicals has a great catalog. How a small family-owned business has pulled it off is still a mystery. If you are into herbal products – and not just Kratom – you will really love these guys.
An extensive product selection can only take you so far, but if your items are not up to the standards, then it’s all for nothing. The good news is that Serenity Botanicals walk the talk. The company doesn’t just claim to test their Kratom, but they’ve actually published updated lab test results dated the 1st of November 2019. Just scroll through the Kratom section and click on Kratom Testing to see the results. It’s no surprise that most of the user reviews we came across had positive feedback on the products and overall customer services of the vendor.
Serenity Botanicals has some of the lowest prices we’ve seen in the market. An ounce of a Kratom strain goes for as little as $6.99, yet most of the other vendors have a price tag of at least $8.99, while others go way over $10.00. Even the powerful Red Maeng Da, Red Bali, and Green Malay are starting at just $6.99.
All the Kratom strains also have 10 grams sample packs that are going for $2.99 only.
The company provides different payment options for your convenience. You can choose to pay through Credit Card, eCheck, Money Order, or Cashier’s Check, Google Pay with Debit Card or Zelle.

Serenity Botanicals does not ship to Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Vermont, Rhode Island, Washington DC, Wisconsin, Oceanside CA, Jerseyville IL, Sand Diego County CA, and Sarasota County FL Cities.
The lack of the same day and free shipping is definitely a dent here, but it is understandable to some extent, given that it’s a small family-owned company. However, we can’t ignore that most of the best vendors have way better shipping policies, so Serenity Botanicals may want to do something if they’re going to compete with the big boys.
If you are not satisfied with the quality of the products, you can contact Serenity Botanicals via email and they will let you know how you can return the items and get a refund or exchange. Your return must have at least 95% of the original SB product to get a refund.
All returns are charged a $5 refund fee for their “processor.”
Serenity Botanicals may not have the best shopping policies, but they perform well in all other aspects. From the product selection, quality, prices to the return policy. They seem to run a very legit and transparent business. The published lab test results are a clear testimony to that. For those reasons, we can’t help but recommend them.
