Glaza Botanicals: What Happened to This Botanical Vendor?

From 2016 to 2017, Glazba Botanicals was one of the leading kratom brands on the internet. At the time they had landed on at least one user’s top 3 vendors list. But just as quickly as they rose to the forefront of the industry, they vanished seemingly without a trace.

This vendor’s website still shows up in search engines, but when you click on the link you are brought to a Wix.com page which reads, “Looks Like This Domain Isn’t Connected To A Website Yet! Is this your domain?”

So what’s the story behind this botanical kratom behemoth falling out like they have? That’s what we endeavor to uncover in today’s post.

WHO WERE THEY?

Glazba Kratom was a U.S.-based kratom supplier specializing in exotic strains such as Green Anjungan, Red Sumatra, Green Elephant, Gold Elephant, Green Monster, White Horned Leaf, Yellow Hulu Kapuas and Tungsten, to name just a few.

Not much is known about who founded the company or whether they ethically sourced their Mitragyna speciosa products and there is no evidence online of the company being registered as an LLC.

WHAT WAS THEIR CONSUMER REPUTATION?

Back in 2017, they were still attracting a loyal customer base despite complaints about their site and their powder. One user wrote, “I have been using Kratom for about a year now…and I recently started vendor shopping since my go to vendor is often sold out. I settled on Glazba Botanicals as the vendor I would try because I was really impressed by the variety of strains and package sizes they offer. I have placed 3 orders with them now and have been very happy with my choice.”

Other users have thanked Glazba for their free samples in the past with one person saying, “Yeah I like Glazba a lot. Especially because he has a few strains no one else has. Monster and his HOG. Brown Bent too.”

SO…WHAT WENT WRONG?

Things began to sour for this American speciosa seller in 2016 when a customer posted a picture of the larvae they had found in a batch of kratom powder they’d ordered from Glazba Botanicals. The Imgur picture was labeled, “WTF is this? Found in Glazba’s Red Sumatra. I’m sick to my stomach looking at it. Is this a bug?”

If that didn’t turn your stomach it certainly turned a few heads in the community. Almost as much as a warning on Kratomaton which read, “This vendor may not offer refunds or exchanges on all items. This vendor’s site may not handle data in a secure manner.”

Little, if anything, has been written about them since 2017, suggesting that they have been out of the game for a minute. Which begs the question: Who has taken their place on the current kratom circuit.

Here’s what we think.

TOP 5 VENDORS THAT STOCK GLAZBA’S EXOTIC STRAINS

  • Exportianak.com
  • Kratom Virtue
  • Original Harvest Kratom
  • Authentic Kratom
  • Krulabula.com

Exportianak.com stocks Green Anjungan powder which sells for a bargain basement $50 per kilo. This is easily the cheapest kratom powder I’ve found online in terms of bulk.

Kratom Virtue’s got that Gold Elephant thang that Glazba was slingin’ back in the day. They sell an ounce for just $5.99 which is only slightly more expensive than the UK-based EthnoCat.

Original Harvest Kratom has a five-star Yellow Hulu Kapuas powder that starts at $17.95 for an ounce size pouch.

Authentic Kratom’s got a powerful White Horn that starts at $10.49 per ounce and caps off at $104.99 for a 10-ouncer. Granted, it ain’t the best option if you’re looking to buy bulk kratom, but it’s definitely not the highest-priced choice online.

Krulabula.com offers an enhanced version of Green Monster which is available in a two-ounce package. Their site is a little low-tech and tough to navigate, but you can call their Missouri customer service line for more information.

BOTTOM LINE

It’s sad to say, but kratom vendors are a dime a dozen these days and many of them are worth far less than a dime. Glazba Botanicals may have been a quality vendor at one point, but things headed south fast and quality control standards obviously dropped over time.

This is why it is of paramount importance that consumers do their homework on a brand before buying from them. You always want to know where your speciosa is being sourced from, whether or not it’s been lab tested and whether or not you can get a refund or replacement on compromised product. Be safe, be smart and be well.
