Note: The following is a guest post from one of our regular customers. The opinions expressed in this post are his and his alone, and do not represent the opinions of Kratom Crazy, its agents or assigns. We make no claims about the use of kratom and remind our readers that kratom is no approved for medicinal use by the FDA.
I’m always eager to try new vendors to see if they’re on the level or if they’re just another cash grab. Like a lot of you probably know, the kratom industry is overrun by B.S. companies that spend more money on fancy websites and building a social media brand than they do on sourcing top shelf kratom powder.
I like to think of myself as a bit of an internet sleuth, carefully smoking the crappy kratom vendors out of their holes and letting my fellow kratom aficionados know whether a site is worth dealing with. This time around I decided to check out USA Botanical, a company with a generic-sounding name and an even more generic-looking website.
In the interest of full disclosure, I should note that USA Botanical provided me with two free sample sets of their product. But I covered the cost of shipping, so it’s not like I got something for nothing.
If you read my last review, you know that I’ve been using kratom to relieve the symptoms of Fibromyalgia. Over the years, the Maeng Da strain has become my go-to kratom strain. Maeng Da is one of the most potent strains available and it’s made a big difference in my life.
Ok, enough jibber-jabber on my part. Here’s what you need to know about this vendor.

If you’re a person of a certain age, you might remember those Chevy truck commercials that were driven by the chorus of Bob Seger’s “Like a Rock.” Well, the chorus of that song might reflect the quality and performance of a Chevy, but it also goes far towards explaining the quality and performance you can expect from USA Botanical.
That’s right, don’t let the low-tech look of their home page fool you. This vendor is solid like a rock in the product department. They’ve got some of the strongest Horned Leaf Kratom around and their incentives are awesome.
When I’m shopping around for kratom powder, I like to have my pick of the litter and USA Botanical satisfies that urge with a full range of impressive strains, including Super Green Malay and White Bali.
I’m also happy to report that USA Botanicals is one of those vendors that is there to help you out. If you don’t find what you’re looking for on their product pages, you can reach out and they’ll talk you through how to locate it.
Personally, I like to change things up from time to time, so I’m never really satisfied to just keep burning White Maeng Da. If nothing else, I like to explore different strains to see how their effects differ and what they might have in store for me.
This vendor gives customers a sweet selection that really stands out, such as Green Vein Borneo and Red Indo. After sampling their Red Indo, I found that it is almost as strong as the Red Bali I’ve tried, but it comes with some undesirable side effects, such as laziness and sluggishness. I also felt a bit nauseous after burning 5 grams.
If there’s one strain in particular that I would vouch for here, it’s their amazing White Maeng Da Horned Kratom powder. It worked wonders for my joint pain and put me in a really positive mood. It’s also way less stimulating than the Maeng Da I’m used to, so you get the relaxation of a red vein combined with the stress management typical of white vein kratom.
The price point for most of their strains is pretty standard with most starting at $19.99, but their kratom capsules are just $11.99 for a 50 count of 500 mg pills.
Their About Us and FAQ pages offer the kind of detailed info that I’ve come to expect from legit vendors who pride themselves on quality and candor. You know you’re not getting burned by these guys or buying bunk product because they tell you just how each batch of kratom is tested and what measures they take to ensure purity.
Return customers get loyalty discounts which are valued at as much as $100 and you know you’re dealing with trustworthy professionals because they stand by a satisfaction guarantee. A first-time USA Botanical coupon code is also at your disposal when you try them out. Just punch in FIRSTTIME5 at checkout and they deduct 5% off your total.
USA Botanical gives you a choice between USPS Priority Mail or USPS Express Mail. The former typically arrives within 2-3 days while the latter is expected to arrived within 1-2 days. I guess this depends on your location since I placed an order for Priority on a Wednesday morning and it was on my doorstep on Friday morning.
Another way in which this vendor excels is their payment methods which trump a lot of the competition. Like Jerry talked about in a recent Kratom Crazy post, many online vendors are unable to accept credit cards because of the restrictions credit card processing companies place on high risk companies.
Apparently USA Botanical has come up with a workaround or something because they not only accept e-check but they also accept Visa, Mastercard, AmEx and Discover Card. This is good news for those in the kratom community who haven’t made the jump to crypto.
This vendor checks all the boxes that usually get me to order, so I’d definitely recommend them. Based on the variety and affordability of their botanicals as well as their convenient payment options, I’d say they are poised to become one of the top sellers online. This is definitely a vendor that’s worth checking out.
