Overview of Yokratom
Striking a balance between affordable and quality products has always been one of the most challenging parts of using Kratom. We all know that quality is everything in using Kratom. Take a low-quality strain and all the benefits you were looking forward to going out of the window. On the other hand, we’ve seen that most of the best Kratom vendors in the market have quite steep prices, which seriously limits the number of people that can buy from the stores. Then we have the suppliers who are in the grey area. The guys whose prices are somewhere in the middle. This is where most Kratom users spend their money. The problem with these companies is they tend to struggle with consistency a lot. One day you could get an insanely powerful supply which you could almost swear that its best you’ve ever tried but then the next time you buy the same strain the results could be disappointing.
Whatever the vendor you decide to go for, one thing is for sure; don’t ever compromise on quality. And you know you don’t even have to spend tens of dollars to get an ounce of high-quality strains. Some stores out here can give you the same for less than $10, with some going as low as $6.50 or so. All you have to do is take your time, do the research, go through user reviews, and find the one store that seems to tick most if not all the relevant boxes. Is YoKratom one of such suppliers?
YoKratom is one of the many companies that claim to be offering some of the best Kratom strains at low prices. You will also notice that most of the reviews online about the store have something to do about their low prices. But, are they really that cheap, and if so, have they taken any potentially harmful shortcuts to achieve these prices?
Before we even get down to the Kratom strains and prices, how easy is it to purchase from YoKratom? The website interface looks really good. Kratom Powder and Capsules are grouped separately. You’ll also see a different category on Kratom Kilos, just in case you are trying to buy in bulk. Note that you can buy both Kratom powder and capsules in bulk from this section. You could also shop based on the available strains. Unfortunately, I noticed that it’s not the typical kind of Kratom strain categorization that we are used to i.e., They have not used the vein color to group the strains, and neither have they used the place of origin.
The middle section of the homepage shows some of the Kratom strains available, and these are grouped as the best sellers, the fan-favorite, new arrivals, and recommended packages.
At the bottom, you’ll find more links on shipping and returns, contact information, and so on.
One key advantage of the YoKratom website is the product description section they have under each strain. This description covers what the strain is popularly known for and where it comes from. You will find this information very useful, especially if you are still learning about Kratom strains, their effects, and their origin.
One minor drawback is you cannot change how much of a strain you are ordering from the cart. This means you have to get the quantity right from the shopping area.
What Kratom strains can you buy from YoKratom?
The store has quite the list, so it shouldn’t be hard to find your favorite strains here.
Some of the strains available in the powdered and capsulated form include:
- Red Maeng Da
- Green Maeng Da
- White Maeng Da
- Red Bali
- Green Malay
- Green Borneo
- White Borneo
- Red Borneo
- Super Indo
- Red Hulu
- Green Hulu
- Trainwreck Kratom Powder
- Green Vietnam
This is where YoKratom starts to get it all wrong. The company does not mention anything about quality assurance or lab testing. We all know that lab testing is vital in ensuring quality Kratom strains. It helps to inform the amount and composition of alkaloids present in a strain, which is critical in determining how potent the strain will be and the sort of effects that you can expect from it. Besides that, lab tests help to check for heavy metals and microbial. These are common contaminants that can cause severe adverse reactions.
The fact that YoKratom does not mention anything about this is concerning. A transparent business that discusses their QA practices will always come highly recommended. Some companies have even gone as far as publishing the Certificate of Analysis on their websites, while others are willing to email you the same if you contact them.
YoKratom has very low prices, especially for their bulk products. How many Kratom vendors out there are selling a Kilo of the potent Maeng Da Kratom for just $89.99? You can also buy 500 grams of the different strains for only $74.99. Very few stores can match these prices.
For the people who are not interested in bulk purchases, the prices for 30g or 1.06oz starts at around $12.99. You can get an ounce for almost half that price, so YoKratom is not the cheapest store for small orders.
Here is the thing though, low prices do not mean a thing if the quality is poor. The fact that YoKratom does not discuss lab testing paints a terrible picture. But, that wouldn’t matter a lot if the users are impressed with the company, right? Well, we took the time and went through the user reviews, and I’m disappointed to tell you that a majority of them were negative. These reviews ranged from marginal results to terrible customer support and shipping times. Speaking of shipping:
YoKratom Shipping and Return Policy
YoKratom claims to ship orders on the same day they are placed and paid for. However, they’ve not said the cut off time for same-day shipping.
There’s no free shipping either. You’ll have to pay fixed handling fees plus the transport fees, which will vary depending on the weight of your order.
Orders are shipped via USPS, UPS, or FedEx.
YoKratom offers a 30-day guarantee for their products. The 30 days start to count down from the day you receive the items. In case you want to return your shipment, you’ll need to contact them within this period to get the way forward. The buyer incurs the cost of shipping the items back to YoKratom. In case after inspection, the company determines that you qualify for an exchange, they will cover the costs for shipping back the exchange.
To qualify for a refund or replacement, the items must be unopened and untampered with. The seal must also be intact.
I believe the only major thing YoKratom has going for it is the prices for bulk purchases. These are really cheap, and they’re definitely going to lure in some buyers, but unfortunately, prices don’t tell the whole story. The quality of their products is very doubtful, which is disappointing because the quality is everything. On top of that, the complaints on the company being unresponsive and failing to deliver the shipments in time are just too many to ignore. Until they can fix these issues, I believe it’s safer to just look for a better alternative.
