Today’s post is gonna be a bit different than what we normally write simply by virtue of the subject we’ll be covering. As I’ve said many times before, it is not uncommon for fly-by-night companies to enter the kratom space with inferior product and make a lot of noise before vanishing like a fart in a heavy wind.
Many brands don’t end up sticking around because they come under fire for legal reasons while others leave such a bad taste in the kratom community’s collective mouth that nobody wants to deal with them.
Normally such brands last for a couple of years before disappearing, but one vendor seems to have become a ghost virtually over night. KRK Naturals is(?) or was a 2017 start-up that was trying to get their name added to I Love Kratom’s Approved Vendor List as of one year and eight months ago.
Located in Boca Raton, this Florida-based supplier claimed to offer “connoisseur-grade” Mitragyna speciosa powder at an affordable price point. At the time, they were selling an ounce for just $4 and 250 grams for $25 with a free bonus 10 gram sample.
The company promised only high quality plant matter, but at least one user said that their powder was of “average quality.” Products included Stem & Vein and plain leaf as well as custom blends like Pink Bali, a mixture of Red Vein Bali and White Vein Bali.
Their catalog of strains include(d) Green Maeng Da, Green Vietnam, Red Elephant, Red Hulu, Red Maeng Da, White Bali and White Maeng Da.
Many users were quite taken with their Yellow Hulu, a Kapuas strain was said to be very potent. One user posted a review, saying, “The prices are budget friendly and this is by far the best I tried when compared to the main budget friendly vendors.”
This vendor offer(ed) a KRK Natural coupon code good for 10% off your order. I put the present tense of offer in parentheses because it is unclear whether they are still in business. After less than two years in operation, it would seem that KRK-Naturals is no longer maintaining an online store.
When you visit http://krk-naturals.com you are greeted by a message notifying you that their site cannot be reached as their server IP address cannot be located.
This is where our readers may be able to help fill in the blanks. With all of the positive feedback that KRK received on social media and the obviously low prices that this seller has been able to provide this news begs the question, “What happened?”
Is this company still in business? Can you still order KRK kratom online? Do they have a new domain name that consumers should be aware of?
In the course of my research for this article I was unable to find a Facebook profile associated with this brand. This is rather odd when one considers the social media presence of all the top companies in the industry.
Perhaps more odd is the absence of queries about them by former customers. It’s more than a little perplexing to learn that users enjoyed this supplier’s product but did not reach out to ask where they went.
