The Peach State’s pretty well-known for its culture and class. From the Allman Brothers Band and Otis Redding to the eclectic hip-hop of Outkast, the Empire State of the South has enjoyed a rich history of artistic nuance and agricultural greatness.
The population of Georgia is largely comprised of hard-working libertarian-minded individuals who place a premium on privacy and citizens’ rights. So it should come as no surprise that the kratom community counts its citizens among their ranks.
Many Georgians love them some “thang” and it’s not hard to come by…if you know where to look. Today we’ll explore all of the top shelf joints for those with a jones for the mmm speciosa.

Atlanta is famous for its hip-hop scene which has birthed countless high profile acts. Whether we’re talking about Ludacris and Lil Jon or Migos and Gucci Mane, there are so many solid talents spitting rhymes outta Dogwood City.
It’s only a matter of time before they start dropping bars about Bali OG or Green Borneo. Who knows? If you’re musically inclined maybe you’ll be the first.
In any event, if you currently reside in the City Too Busy to Hate there are numerous places where you can purchase kratom products. Here is a short list of the very best spots to get kratom.
Kratom Fresh is our number one choice because they operate their own online store. The site boasts a sick ass design that’s backed by a solemn promise that you’ll only be getting 100% pure, organic kratom.
We strongly believe that the public should only deal with kratom vendors that offer such guarantees. If a company is unable or unwilling to make such a promise then they’re obviously up to no good.
Kratom Fresh’s prices are far from the best out there (28 grams is $25 before shipping), but their quality is unrivaled in the region. They also stock edible CBD gummy worms which are super rad.
Happy Hookah is the second runner-up because they are strongly committed to keeping things local and above board. While they do stock some smoke shop brands such as OPMS kratom extract capsules, their focus is mainly on kratom powder which they are proud to call their own.
Happy Hookah’s proprietary kratom blend sells for $7 per 15 grams or 45 grams for $20 after tax. This is certainly the most affordable option in the greater Atlanta area and the staff are a delight to deal with.
Hidden Treasures also offers great kratom prices and a wide selection of products. Family owned and operated, this vendor is another trustworthy source for solid kratom powder. If it’s true Southern hospitality you’re after then this is the place for you.
Hidden Treasures has fast and friendly service, diverse variety and deep discounts on merch. Check ’em out the next time you find yourself on Whitehall St.
Wyzo’s Smoke Shop is the highest rated tobacco store in Atlanta with good reason. They are friendly, knowledgeable and fully loaded with a lot of quality kratom brands. Good kratom, good prices, good staff. ‘Nuff said.
There aren’t too many options if you live in the Heart of Georgia. Macon-Bibb County has only two well-known tobacco shops, one of which we’ll talk about later. But if you’re in a hurry to get your hands on some tea then it comes down to just one place—Cali’s Smoke Shop.
This vendor carries a 4.6 star rating on Google and are well-regarded by local residents who shop with them. Their kratom prices are relatively inexpensive, and their powders and capsules are all first rate.
Just like the Gate City of the South, Savannah has so many spots to choose from that it can get tough to nail down the good from the bad. IMHO (as someone who’s only passed through a couple of times), I’d have to say that it can be narrowed down to three—Mary Jane’s CBD Dispensary, Planet 3 Smoke Shop and Smoke City.
Mary Jane’s isn’t just a place with an adorable name, it’s also home to one of the nicest and most sincere shop owners in the city. The last time I stopped in, I asked him what brands he was stocking at the moment and he informed me that they had discontinued their kratom supply.
This might sound like it would eliminate their smoke shop from our list, but oh contrare! This cat actually referred me to Planet 3 and gave me detailed directions without any solicitation. While I was there, I picked up the strongest CBD oil I’ve ever used at a fraction of the price I would pay anywhere else. They’re well worth a visit for their other products and a heads up about where to stop next for some speciosa.
Planet 3 is the crème of the crop if you live in Goober State. Their kratom powder is pure and unadulterated, their pricing is reasonable and their employees are awesome to talk with.
Finally, Smoke City is a spot that’s got everything a serious noot nut could want from quality kratom tea to an exceptional array of natural supplements and accessories. Their artfully crafted glass kicks ass as well. Like Happy Hookah, they have their own proprietary blend of kratom powder and it’s some of the freshest in the state.
For every trusted kratom vendor in the state, there is a multitude of meh alright or straight up crappy tobacky shops. Some of the ones that wave the biggest red flags include Gallery Smoke Savannah, Village Smoke and Terrapin Station in Atlanta and Trip 3 in Augusta.
Gallery Smoke has a dreadful selection and a dreary atmosphere while Village Smoke has shitty prices and poor quality. Terrapin Station is just your run-of-the-mill smoke shop while Trip 3 is a cruddy convenience store that doesn’t allow you to use your cellphone while you’re in their store.
This is always the most advisable thing to do if you can practice some patience and wait for your delivery to arrive. Online vendors are generally held to a higher standard than gas stations and head shops.
The top kratom vendors online provide detailed info about where they source their kratom leaf from, disclose when it has been lab tested to ensure there is no contamination and always back their product with a satisfaction guarantee.
Of the hundreds of kratom vendors currently in operation, there are only a few that land on the top of our list. They include the following:
These guys check all the boxes as far as I’m concerned; they’ve got dozens of unique blends between them and their reputation precedes them. Gaia has been number one in my experience for going on four years now. I love to check back with them and see what new things they have in store for us.
Coastline Kratom is an old fave as well. I’ve long appreciated their convenient shipping options and payment methods. Plus they’ve got killer product that’s easily worth the wait.
Pharmacy Dropout (aka PDO Botanicals) is a new favorite that I only recently found out about. You can peep my full review here.
Last but not least, Remarkable Herbs is perhaps the greatest smoke shop kratom brand I’ve come across of recent vintage. Their fresh, finely ground powder is pleasant and aromatic, to say nothing of their wide assortment of seeds, mushrooms and more.
The Dirty South has dozens of great kratom shops to choose from, but these are some of your best bets for powder that’s deserving of being called Premium. Dig in, baby!
