California may be best known for its marijuana dispensaries, but vendors like High Sierra Herbals have also made it a hot spot for those seeking classic kratom strains and specialty blends. With a grand assortment of lab-tested powders and capsules to choose from, they have solidified their position as one of the top choices on the West coast.

In this helpful review we’ll tell you all about their product line, pricing, incentives and social media presence. Read below to find out where they stand among their competition and what consumers think about them.


Founded by independent artisan Jeff Bosowski in Truckee, a quaint mountain town in the Sierras (hence the name), High Sierra Herbals quickly exploded onto the scene. After launching their online store customers flooded the site, eager to check out their wares.

Those who have talked about buying from them have nothing but good things to say. They’ve scored major points for their proprietary blends as well as their informative kratom guide and detailed FAQ page. The only thing about their site that has given anyone pause is their landing page which refers to kratom as a “natural medicine.”

Seasoned Mitragyna speciosa enthusiasts understand how damaging it can be to the future of the Ayurvedic herb if TPTB get hip to sellers using this kind of terminology. Here in the United States, the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) has not approved kratom for medicinal use. Therefore, it is seen as kind of sketchy for a seller to refer to it in this way.

Medical claims aside, this vendor has risen to the top of the heap in the eyes of the kratom community. After peeping all their goodies below I trust you’ll see why.


HSH offers green, red and white vein kratom strains which include all of the following:

  • Green Horn
  • Green Kapuas
  • Green Maeng Da
  • Green Malay
  • Red Bali
  • Red Dragon
  • Red Maeng Da
  • Red Thai
  • White Bali
  • White Horn
  • White Kapuas
  • White Maeng Da
  • White Sumatra
  • White Thai

Each of the above are available for purchase in either powder or capsule form. They also stock their bestselling specialty blends which include Sierra Sunrise Blend and Sierra Sunset Blend. Those who have ordered these blends become die hard fans, so much so that they shoot over to the site’s merch store so that they can proudly wear a High Sierra T-shirt.


Each of their powders start at $9.99 for an ounce with two ounces selling for $15.99 and eight ounces going for $34.99. Their kilos (1,000 grams) cost an industry low $98.99. That’s certainly not the lowest we’ve come across, but it’s far from what many companies charge.

Additionally, you can pick up a split kilo which can be divided into as many as four different strains. This gives you room to explore more of their options before placing a larger order of any given one.

They also offer sample packs of either their green, red and white strains (one ounce of each) or their Relax, Sunrise and Sunset blends (one ounce each) for $19.99.


All orders are shipped via USPS First Class Mail or Priority Mail, depending on the customer’s preference. First Class packages generally arrive within 2-4 days while Priority will reach you a bit sooner. Tracking information is provided once your order is on its way.

This vendor provides free shipping to anybody who orders more than $20, otherwise it’s $3.75. Any problems or delays, you can contact them about it straight away. When I experienced a hiccup on my sample order I shot them a quick message via Live Chat and got an immediate response.

The resolution to my issue came with an extra advantage—I received my full order plus two free samples.


These cats accept everything from a diddle-eyed joe to a damned if I know. Whether it’s Cash App, e-check, Venmo or Zelle that you’re looking to use, HSH has got the hookup. You can also mail in a check, although this will delay the arrival of your order more than a husky deliveryman coping with the alternative to a broken elevator.


Any High Sierra Herbals Reddit post reflects the public’s opinion of this fine supplier. They have also garnered favorable reviews on I Love Kratom where one user writes, “Great smell, fine grind, mellow taste…Jeff took the time to email me info about his products and offered a 20% discount “SIERRALEAF “ for anyone who wants to check his products before going big…

“High Sierra Herbals home page has good background info about kratom use, it’s origins, strains and effects as well as a new blog…My experience with HSH was satisfying….as they are a warm vendor providing top shelf kratom and educating folks on the beauty of Quality kratom!!! Worth checking out…”


  • Good variety
  • Awesome blends
  • Reasonable pricing
  • Multiple payment options
  • Dedicated customer care


  • Lacks user-friendly website navigation
  • Does not post lab results


Despite their site being a little hinky when it comes to pages loading and the like, everything else about this seller is top notch. I haven’t found a single product in their catalog that hasn’t delighted across the board. They check all the boxes. So what are you waiting for? Check ’em out! : )
