Captains have a huge responsibility. They must command a company, man a ship, determine the course that things should take. In this regard Captain LA Kratom is leading the charge for a better and safer kratom industry.
This California-based vendor is at the the vanguard of a movement to deliver fresh and potent Mitragyna speciosa products to the contemporary marketplace. In this review we’ll delve into what makes them special, how they’ve changed the game and what they’re doing to keep their pimp hand strong.
By that, I mean how they’ve taken Maeng Da, aka Pimp Kratom, and enhanced it for the discerning user who wants something stronger than your average powder.
Here is our detailed look at one of the West coast’s most celebrated speciosa suppliers.

Captain James Cook of the Royal Navy once famously said, “The man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.”
That’s what Captain Kratom has done by ignoring the latest trends in the kratom and CBD space in favor of perfecting their own brand in their own unique way. First established in 2006, they have been blazing a trail ever since.
When everyone else was talkin’ major smack about gold and yellow kratom this vendor was concocting Captain LA Kratom Gold Maeng Da capsules, some of the most robust caps on the market and easily the finest gold powder to ever grace the tongues and tum-tums of the community.
Never content to simply rest on the laurels of their success, these cats went on to refine their formula, producing the far superior Captain La Kratom Gold XXL. It is through this fastidious attention to detail and dedicated R & D that they have been able to maintain their position as California’s premier source for online and wholesale “thang.”
Don’t let their intimidating mascot fool you, this Captain is not some villain…although it won’t take more than a sampler for them to get their metaphorical hooks in you.
With regular deals on bundles, kilos, XXL kratom capsules and more, they have kept things interesting for return visitors to their site. At this very moment you can save 20% off a bundle or receive 10% off 60 grams of their Vietnam strain, easily the most powerful leaf in their catalog.
This seller has optimized the speciosa experience by combining kratom powder with CBD, distributing capsules that contain both Maeng Da—notorious for its exceptional strength—with CBD isolate, arguably the purest form of cannabidiol.
They currently stock the following strains in both powder and capsule form:
Each strain ranges in price from $11.99 to $19.99 for 25 counts of 15 gram caps. A 50 count of 30 grams will run you about $23.99 while a 100 count of 60 gram caps will cost you $36.00. Their proprietary blend of kratom and CBD starts at $28 for a 25 count of 15 gram caps that contain 125 milligrams of isolate.
CaptainLA charges just $49.99 for a bundle which consists of 15 grams each of Bali, Maeng Da, Thai and Vietnam.
This seller offers Same Day Shipping on all orders that you place with them. A flat rate of just $3.99 is charged for ground shipping while $25 can get you Express Shipping and $35 will get you overnight shipping.
Packages normally arrive within two to three business days with most users receiving them within two. I placed an order on Friday and received mine on Saturday and I’m on a different coast.
Getting in touch is a cakewalk as you just dial their 1-800 number and get connected with a representative within seconds.
This vendor accepts cash, check or money order, but that’s not all. Unlike many other brands who encounter trouble with credit card processing, CaptainLA currently accepts all major credit and debit cards.
Captain Kratom Gold has been compared to Edens Ethnos in terms of its effects while others have said that their Thai strain is remarkable and unparalleled in the current marketplace.
Some have said that they are little more than a standard smoke shop brand, but I have to beg to differ. These guys are professional, friendly and full of surprises. Their CBD isolate blend is among the most pungent and robust powders I’ve ever had the good fortune to sample.
One user on Reddit said, “Personally I’ve tried Captain Vietnam (15 grams for 30 bucks), although it’s over priced and the capsules are lightly packed it is definitely one to consider…
“Captain Kratom Thai is one that I just picked up to test out…I have to say the quality is on par with what you would expect from a headshop…”
In a YouTube review, another user said that their Thai capsules were nicely sealed and manufactured, adding that he got results after taking eight of them. “It’s not bad for the money,” he says. “But you’re gonna have to eat a lot of them.”
I’ve been more and more impressed with what these guys have to offer, particularly their CBD blend. They are chill AF and very rejuvenating. Their Bali powder is also a personal fave and one that I will likely keep in my regular rotation moving forward.
The real draw here is their bundle which enables first-time consumers to try out each of their strains at small dosages without having to invest a small fortune in discovering what they’re all about.
Although their pricing is a bit cost-prohibitive for the community as a whole, it’s this reviewer’s belief that their product line is well worth the price hike. After all, where else are you gonna get your speciosa fix and your CBD dose all in one? For this reason alone, I definitely recommend them.
