Many kratom vendors have been demonized in the wake of last year’s salmonella outbreak. One company in particular has suffered more than some.
After the North Dakota state public health lab tested their Red Maeng Da kratom tea for adulteration and found it to be highly related to other human isolates around the country, they were slapped with a lawsuit by the return customer who had fallen ill after using it.
The vendor in question, Colorado’s Soap Korner, obviously dropped the wall when it came to quality control at the time and they have been feeling the burn ever since. Several people have warned people not to do business with them.
But are they really a shady operation or did they simply screw up? Has this vendor learned from past mistakes?
Let’s have a look.

Soap Korner lawsuit aside, this Colorado Springs kratom vendor is a legit source for artisanal products and top of the line botanicals. The company was founded by two friends whose collective passions and skills make them more than qualified to handpick and/or hand-make their full product line.
Fallon is a licensed esthetician with a deep love for body and skin care while Josh is a lifelong vegetarian who believes in the manifold areas in which plants can nourish and please the individual. Together they have put out a wealth of organic cold processed soaps, bath bombs, essential oils, natural balms and…yes, kratom teas.
Soap Korner Big Kahuna is wildly popular among those who favor proprietary blends. In fact, it’s the most searched of all their kratom strains. But that is not to say that they don’t have a wide array of offerings in their online store.
Soap Korner’s kratom teas include Crushed Leaf, Gold Bali, Green Kali, Red Pele, White Bentuangie, Yellow Vietnam and their signature Night Cap blend.
This vendor’s kratom powders generally start at $11.10 for an ounce with kratom kilos selling for $135.50. This makes them an affordable option for both the casual kratom consumer and the seasoned kratomite looking to buy bulk kratom powder.
Their sampler packs give customers six ounces of kratom powder consisting of an ounce each of six strains for under $50. Their # 2 sampler gives all this plus an ounce of Maui Waui and an ounce of their Red blend.
Coupon Birds currently has Soap Korner coupon code good for $30 off your total at checkout. Other discounts are regularly offered on Soap Korner products throughout their site.
This vendor only uses USPS Priority shipping, so you always know that you’re going to get your package in a timely manner. They offer 3-5 day shipping, but in my experience you usually get your order much sooner than that.
The majority of orders received are shipped out the very same day and you can contact them ’round the clock if you have any questions about tracking information or anything like that. Returns are also offered on wrong or missing orders so long as you send them a copy of the paper invoice they send with your package.
Customer service is another big boon with this vendor as they give you a multitude of options when it comes to contacting them. You can drop them an email which normally receives a prompt reply or call them directly on the phone.
This vendor normally accepts all major credit cards with cards being charged within 24 hours prior to shipment.
Soap Korner has landed on lists of trusted vendors and their customer base is very loyal. The chatter among the kratom community has been largely positive where this vendor is concerned. One user pointed out that they are among a select few vendors who are making the move towards GMP compliance.
Others have expounded on their quality with one user writing, “It was good. No complaints. I ordered a couple times from them. They had a good white bent.”
Elsewhere, a first-time user said, “I took a shot in the dark and ordered some Red Maeng Da from Soap Korner. Ordered on (I think?) a Monday, got it on Friday. Even included a Christmas card wishing us well. Nice touch.
“But more importantly – the product. The consistency was very fine, no sticks and leaves horror stories here.”
This same user goes on to discuss their Red MD effects, writing, “I had about two cups and boy oh boy. I was simply thrilled. The stimulating effects, the pain relief, the subtle (but not overdone) euphoria. This is simply a GREAT product, a true quality of life changer, and I must commend soap Korner for their fast, exemplary service, and high quality product. I’ve made quite a few batches of tea now, and have to say this is just a fine product and vendor all around.”
Soap Korner may have stumbled in the past, but they are a worthy choice in the current marketplace. Their kratom tea’s quality is matched only by their commitment to their customers. Try ’em out soon and let us know what you think. Happy Kbombing, kids! : )
