This vendor’s product has been called “the brand of kratom connoisseurs” by one enthusiastic wholesaler, but there is scant information available about them in consumer forums and the like. In recent years, the Kannibal Kratom brand has become a bestseller at head shops and smoke shops across America.
Wholesalers regularly stock Kannibal Kratom’s Maeng Da and Bali strains and some have sold out within hours, but little has been said about their kratom powder. For whatever reason, the kratom community has been curiously mum about their experience with this company.
Today, we’re gonna change all that by doing a deep dive on their website and a review of what people have been saying about this vendor.
Unlike other vendors in the space, Kannibal Kratom have not been forthcoming about the origins of their company. Where some put forth a mission statement or share the story behind their humble beginnings, this vendor does not give their visitors much to go on.
Their About page is less a Get To Know Us thing and more a breakdown of what kratom is and where it comes from. All they really say about their operation is that they are supposedly a team of kratom experts with decades of experience in the kratom business.
If this is true, you’d never know it since Kannibal Kratom itself has only been around for a few short years. The site was copyrighted in 2016 and no location for a parent company is available on their homepage or sub-pages.
Their logo says that they are based out of Austin, TX and that much seems to be true as the Kannibal Kratom name was trademarked on January 21st of 2016 by Daniel Cleland of Austin, TX.
It is not uncommon for kratom companies to change their names or merge with other kratom sites, but there is no evidence to suggest that the company once went by another name or anything like that.
If all of that wasn’t bizarre enough, their disclaimer page says that their product is made with love (a heart emoji if we’re being technical about it) in the US. Everyone knows that kratom is sourced from Southeast Asia and, in fact, the site even claims that they get their product from the jungles of Borneo.
This one left me scratching my head.
This is one area that raises some red flags for this kratom fan. Vendor only offers two different kratom strains at the moment—Bali and Maeng Da, respectively. Their kratom capsules come in packages of 14, 42 or 70 (odd numbers over all).
More alarmingly, they do not appear to offer the wealth of kratom powder options typical of most of the top kratom vendors. A lot of wholesalers provide bulk kratom powder, such as 1 kilo or more. Kannibal Kratom only offers 30 grams or 60 grams.
What’s worse, each kratom capsule contains only 0.6 grams of raw kratom powder which ain’t a whole helluva lot when one considers that the average user will take 2-6 grams per dose.
This is another bone of contention for me; I value transparency over all else when it comes to dealing with kratom vendors. In the case of Kannibal Kratom, not only do they offer no assurances of service, money back guarantee or commitment to excellence but they don’t even list their kratom prices on their site.
We don’t even get a proper product page! All you get is a picture of their two strains directly on the homepage beside a form that one can fill out in order to receive more information about placing an order with the company.
This is seriously the most threadbare site I’ve seen in quite some time and that’s saying something because we’ve been vocal on this blog about the more amateurish or minimalist designs of lesser vendors. I have to say that this one takes the cake.
This one’s another head scratcher—the disclaimer page says that their product is distributed by UB, Salt Lake City, UT. The only UB we could find listed in Salt Lake City is UB Pharmaceuticals, LLC, a company that definitely DOES NOT offer kratom products of any kind.
It’s all well and good for a vendor to do business on the down low, but it’s another for customers to complain about their products with no resolution. Most reputable vendors are plugged into social media and carefully follow the feedback offered by consumers.
If you spend enough time on kratom-related sub-reddits, you’ll come across countless posts about bad experiences with a kratom product where the vendor in question promptly responds to the user’s post, offering a refund on a weak batch or a replacement of the product. Some even throw in samples of other strains so that the user can get a more well-rounded idea of what they have to offer.
Kannibal Kratom has not established any kind of presence on such platforms and do not appear to reach out to customers who are less than satisfied with their kratom.
So, what are people saying about this vendor?
One user wrote about how their Maeng Da is a mix or red vein and white vein. In his post, he says, “I wasn’t impressed.” Ironically, another person responded to his comment, saying that Maeng Da was too strong for him.
Of course, user experiences vary widely and one Reddit user said that their kratom “worked like a dream.”
Aside from those comments and a few responses, there is very little in the way of public comment on this vendor. They are not listed among trusted vendors on any kratom-related websites and no well-regarded sources have reviewed them in the past.
It is usually a bad sign for a company to have such an utter lack of consumer reputation.
While user experiences differ from person to person, the overwhelming evidence points to Kannibal Kratom being a less than ideal choice for most kratom users, particularly the more seasoned user who is used to premium kratom from facilities that lab-test their product.
We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again. Always do your homework before purchasing kratom online. There are unlimited resources for finding top shelf kratom. Be safe, be smart and be well.
