The Garden State is all about two things—Prosperity and Liberty. This extends to its residents’ ability to buy whatever botanicals they please.
New Jersey has a rich history of embracing what nature has to offer; the state’s Nature Conservancy is the leading conservation organization working around the world and its botanical garden is open every day of the year.
Kratom is considered an Ayurvedic herb in Jersey and, as such, it is regarded as safe and legal. As a popular alternative supplement, kratom can be found all across the state. But finding the right source for kratom can be a chore, to say the least.
Some kratom vendors are shadier than others, offering mislabeled or unlabeled products and price gouging whenever the media sends the public into panic mode.
In an effort to point our readers in the right direction, we’ve assembled a comprehensive list of the top places to buy kratom locally in the Jersey Blue State. Have a look.

Although there aren’t too many options at your disposal in ole A.C., the selection is still good. In Northfield, you can hit up The Shop on Tilton and get your hands on any of four different kratom brands.
The bestsellers here include OPMS capsules and Remarkable Herbs’s awesome Bali and Maeng Da kratom powders. Customers can purchase 2 packages of kratom powder for $65 which is a fair wholesale mark-up in terms of retail pricing.
Their friendly and well-read staff are always able to assist, either over the phone or in person. They will walk you through the purported effects of each kratom strain and their different pricing options.
Smoker Castle Inc in A.C. Proper is a pitiful place that’s always over-crowded with vapists buying overpriced vape juice and other accessories. The owner has an attitude and only stocks one brand of kratom, the fittingly named Lyft. Like the Uber competitor of the same moniker, Lyft Kratom just doesn’t measure up.
Smoker Castle’s unprofessional employees aren’t even the worst part. Their kratom pricing is abominable with staffers regularly changing the price tags on a whim. The store’s owner doesn’t even know how much an ounce goes for off the top of his head. Stay away!
Over in the Mile Square City, you can avail yourself of any number of shops including Hoboken Cigars and East Village Smoke Shop, but the very best kratom experience will likely result from a visit to Ultimate Smoke & Vapor.
Ultimate Smoke and Vapor has a killer staff of young and upbeat employees who are happy to run down their wealth of different kratom strains and purchasing choices. Whether you’re looking for OPMS kratom shots, K shots, Bali, Mitragyna capsules or Malaysian Horned Leaf, they’ll be able to point you in the right direction.
Unlike other vendors that upcharge for single ounces, Ultimate Smoke & Vapor offers 3 oz bags of kratom powder for just $29.99. That’s about the cheapest I’ve seen it on the East coast.
Other options you may want to consider include Hoboken Smoke Shop and Hoboken Smoke & Vape. Personally, I have never dealt with either of these two outfits, but I can tell you that they have a 3 star rating or higher and have been well-reviewed by return customers.
They don’t call it Chilltown for nothing.
The first place I’ve gotta mention here is one that fans of the Red Devil brand are gonna be excited about. Red Devil Kratom and CBD Oil is open 24 hours a day and they carry a 5 star rating. This is your one-stop shop for all Red Devil products.
Jersey City is also home to Smoker’s Heaven, a tobacco and vape shop with a 4.8 star rating and a number of different kratom products.
When I checked them out last fall, they were waiting for a new shipment to come in, so all they had in stock was OPMS Silver. However, their pricing was pretty incredible. Customers could snatch up a 30 count for just $25. Not too shabby.
Other options include A # 1 Smoke Shop and Smoke Shop Jersey City. The former is located on Baldwin Avenue and has a decent variety of products to choose from, but their prices are too high. Period. The latter, on the other hand, is a low-rent affair with an unruly staff that aren’t afraid to hang up on customers or get snotty if you ask too many questions.
Morristown has some of the funkiest kratom sources in the entire Clam State from Wizard Smoke Shop to Primal Glass, but the joints that have made a lasting impression on me are Serenity Tobacco & Gift Shop in Ledgewood and Super Gold Deli & Convenience.
Serenity has a king’s ransom of rad kratom products to choose from, boasting some of the biggest and most trusted names in the kratom industry. They include O.P.M.S., Remarkable Herbs and MIT45.
1 oz bags of Remarkable Herbs sell for $14.99 while 3 oz bags go for only $29.99. MIT45 shots are available for $6.99 which is fairly standard but definitely better than many of their competitors.
Super Gold Deli & Convenience has everything you could possibly ask for from kratom powder and kratom capsules to kratom extracts and kratom soap. With all of the popular name brands in stock, they are the ideal place to really spend some time browsing.
Their prices are also rock solid with a 3 oz bag going for just $19.99. The owner is a nice guy who is knowledgeable about his products and the store is a good hang with plenty of other items on sale to occupy your time.
For the crypto-conscious consumer, you can’t beat the convenience of their Bitcoin machine either. If you’re looking for what one reviewer described as “mad cool people” and a chill environment, Super Gold is the way to go.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Although there is value to be placed on convenience, there is also a premium that should be placed on safety. The inherent problem with smoke shops is that you don’t always know what you’re getting.
Vendors can often mislabel bags or sell dangerous adulterated products. If you’re willing to be patient, there are many top shelf kratom vendors operating online, all of whom offer expedited shipping options for those who simply cannot wait to get them some thang.
Here is our short list of the top kratom vendors in 2019:
Many of the vendors listed above offer money back guarantees, free shipping, bonus samplers and more. Do a little hunting online and you can usually find coupon codes good for as much as 20% off your order at checkout.
