Kratomcapsules.com make the rather brazen assertion that they are the leading source for the lowest prices. This kind of claim is nothing new or particularly unique. After all, most every kratom vendor makes a similar claim. Hell, we’ve been guilty of it ourselves.
While high quality and low prices are of the utmost value to the community, honesty and integrity are of equal import. So, does kratomcapsules.com measure up to their self-professed excellence or are they yet another brand that’s more about hype than keeping their customers happy?
Let’s take a closer look.

This Florida-based kratom vendor is an online business operating out of Cutler Bay in Miami-Dade County. This is notable because of its close proximity to Sarasota County where kratom was banned by county ordinance in 2014.
This has not stopped folks from the outskirts of Sarasota from enjoying kratom. Despite multiple attempts to make it illegal, it remains unregulated everywhere else in the state. As of right now, it is legal to sell and possess kratom in the Sunshine State, but users should be sure to follow the news and check with local authorities about any changes to the law.
This seller offers a select number of strains, none of which strike me as genuinely viable. The following is a full list of their products, all of which are sold in capsule form:
As you can see, it’s slim pickins for those who are used to a wide assortment of exotic kratom strains. The names are what are especially perturbing since they scream hyperbole. What is Super Premium anyways? Who knows?
It’s hard to get a fix on what any of this stuff is because of the scarcity of information this seller provides. They do not disclose the source of their plant matter or how it was harvested.
What we do know is that each capsule contains approximately 500 milligrams of Mitragyna speciosa leaf powder. This means that you would have to take five to six caps in order to reach a 3 gram threshold. This might be effective for noobs, but those who have acclimated to kratom are unlikely to get anything out of this unless they gobble handfuls of these things and manage to choke them down without vomiting.
A lot of newcomers to the kratom space prefer to buy kratom in capsules because it doesn’t look so foreign to them. Let’s be real, we’ve all taken supplements before, but not all of us have handled raw powder. I get it.
That is not to say that I agree with the practice of taking mitra tea as caps. On the contrary, I always encourage people to familiarize themselves with kratom powder. Yes, it’s a learning curve for some what with having to measure out your grams before brewing a cup of tea. But it’s a safer way to know exactly what you’re getting.
It’s also worth mentioning that things tend to get pricier when you’re buying this stuff as capsules because, quite simply, you can only fit so much powder into each cap. Any seasoned user will tell you that it’s far less expensive to take the DIY approach and make your own capsules at home.
Another consideration is the quality that we talked about earlier. The dirty truth is this: Most kratom capsules are total garbage. Why? Because vendors can put whatever they want inside of them, so consumers invariably end up wasting money on unwanted additives that drive down overhead for the sellers and compromise what could have been an otherwise positive experience.
You’re probably asking yourself, “Why doesn’t someone stop them?”
This is the double-edged sword when it comes to kratom legality. So long as kratom remains legal and unapproved by the FDA it will remain an unregulated compound. Without regulation no health standards can be imposed on shady manufacturers.
Each 50 count bottle sells for $15.19 which may seem, at first blush, like a damn good deal. After all, most online sellers charge $15-20 for an ounce of kratom powder. But this doesn’t look like much of anything when you break it all down.
If each cap contains 500 milligrams that means that a 50 count bottle is the equivalent of just 25 grams. That’s less than an ounce by more than three grams. This is hardly a discount of any kind.
A multitude of former customers have come out against this vendor with one user writing, “DO NOT ORDER FROM THESE PEOPLE!!! They are extremely deceptive. They do not honor anything they say. If you need to contact them; they open a “ticket”. You will here from Sabrina. She basically will tell you what you want to hear.
“They tell you you can return anything that is not open. I have spent hundreds of dollars on capsules and powders I sent back several containers of powders. I have been waiting for my refund for over a month. Get this….I was told they have no way of issuing a credit to my card. They have to send me a check. STILL WAITING!! Their web site supplies a phone number; however no one has ever answered.”
A complaint filed in July discusses a request for refund in May that hadn’t been issued as of July 16th of 2018. Another complaint filed in March of 2018 references an order that was placed on the 9th of February. The user writes: “I ordered White Maeng Da Kratom, but received Green Maeng Da. I paid 45.98. The order number is XXXXXXXXX. I have tried contacting them multiple times since 2/19/18 with no avail.
“They responded once asking for a picture of the product. I provided one and then no response. I mailed the product back (with my money), and they received it on 2/26/18. They still have not refunded my money. They will not answer my emails or return/answer my phone calls. I have contacted my credit card company. They are doing an investigation but it will take 45-90 days.”
After looking into this seller’s history with consumers and researching their product line I cannot, in good conscience, recommend them to our readers. These are the kinds of companies that give the industry a bad name. Those who wish to purchase caps would do well to shop around. Be safe, be smart and be well.
