Shaman Nation is a five-star kratom vendor out of California. Cali is synonymous with the sinsemilla, but if these guys have anything to say about it, the state will soon be equally associated with the speciosa.

Kratom is an Ayurvedic herb that comes from the leaves of the Mitragyna speciosa plant, a large evergreen tree from the coffee family. It grows in the wilds of Southeast Asia and is harvested by a vast network of local farmers who partner with American artisans who wish to share it with the Western world.

The last time I checked, there were literally hundreds of kratom vendors on the market, many of them brand new and virtually unknown. Shaman Nation is one of them, a newly minted business with a low-tech website but a genuine devotion to safety, security and discretion.

In this review you’ll find out all about their full product line, the latest additions to their online store and what you need to know before buying from them.

WHO ARE THEY?

With headquarters in sunny La Verne, CA, Shaman Nation has established themselves as one of the leading kratom brands on the West coast. They specialize in wildcrafted kratom powder and proprietary blends, but there’s more to their online store than all that.

As anybody who’s visited the Golden State can tell you, Cali is overrun with self-professed gurus and shaman, many of whom are little more than hippie-dippie snake oil salesman. That’s why it’s refreshing when you come across a company like Shaman Nation whose products reflect the veracity of their name.

Although their site is quite threadbare, their catalog is not. They carry a number of rich ethnobotanicals as well as a merch line that you’ll want to wear to your next social event.

 

Located in San Dimas, that famed city with strange things afoot at the Circle K, Trey and his team at SN are the perfect people to turn to for top notch natural solutions. Here’s why:

WHAT HAVE THEY GOT TO OFFER?

 

 

This vendor currently stocks incense, oils, extracts, kava, resins, tinctures and more. They carry African Dream Root, Blue Lotus, Damiana, Dream Herb, Maca Powder, Sacred Lotus and kratom potentiators like Valerian Root and Wild Dagga.

Their Fresh Noble Kava Root is another powerful kratom potentiator and kratom alternative, and it comes in both raw and extract form.

Their kratom strains and specialty blends include all of the following:

  • Eye-Opener Blend
  • Green and White Blend
  • Green Borneo
  • Green Vein Indo
  • Green Malay Version 2
  • Mark’s Special Blend
  • Pink Vein Indo
  • Premium Red Bali
  • Premium Red Thai
  • Red Borneo
  • Red Maeng Da
  • Super Green Maeng Da
  • White Bali
  • White Borneo
  • White Vein Indo (Sumatra)

As you can see, it’s a relative smorgasbord at this online store, there’s something for all tastes and times.

WHAT’S IT GONNA COST ME?

Each of their kratom powders start at $10.50 for an ounce with four ounces going for $29.99. A lb (16 ounces) goes for $100 which ain’t exactly great when one considers that a kratom kilo contains 35+ ounces and is readily available from bulk kratom vendors for around the same price…but you get what you pay for.

Shaman Nation’s kratom is worth it. Period. I’ve been overwhelmed by how dazzling most of their strains are. In fact, I only found one strain to weak out of the eight that I sampled.

SHAMAN NATION COUPON CODE

These cats offer regular promotions via social media, so be sure to Like them on Facebook to unlock their latest coupon codes. These codes are good towards free Priority shipping on orders over $30.00.

SHIPPING & CUSTOMER SERVICE

Customers can choose between Priority Mail which costs $6.95 or Priority Mail Express which will run you $22.68. Packages typically arrive within 2-3 business days, depending on your location. I got mine in two days which really astounded me considering I was living on the East coast when I checked them out.

Trey makes it a cinch to reach him as you can call, text, send a letter or email him. Responses are quick and resolutions are guaranteed.

PAYMENT METHODS

Users can pay via check, money order, temporary credit card or Bitcoin. I think you’ll agree that this is one of the most well-rounded vendors where payment is concerned. A lot of sellers are losing their ability to process credit cards and are only accepting crypto.

On the other hand, some sellers only accept credit cards and do not accept things like Cash App, Google Pay, Bitcoin or Zelle. Trey and his team represent the best of both worlds.

HOW DO THEY COMPARE TO THEIR COMPETITORS?

There are several kratom vendors operating in Cali right now, Authentic Kratom and Cali Botanicals chief among them. So, where does SN stack up when compared to these heavyweights? Let’s take a look.

Cali Botanicals’ kratom powder starts at $3 for a 12 gram sampler while their most popular option is their 28 gram (1 ounce) pouch which sells for just eight bucks. That’s eight dollars compared to the $10.50 that this seller charges.

They also sell a kilo for only $118 which is only $18 more than you’d spend on a mere 16 ounces at SN.

Alternately, the folks at Authentic Kratom provide prices as low as $8.39 for an ounce. All this tells us is that the self-proclaimed Shaman would do well to adjust their prices in the future. However, their quality is unsurpassed by their competitors, as evidenced by the fact that I had a positive experience with all but one of the eight strains I sampled for review purposes.

TOP PICKS FOR BEST KRATOM STRAINS

My personal faves are Mark’s Special Blend and their Super Green, both of which have a robust aroma and an extended duration. Another fave is their Pink Vein Indo which strikes me as some sort of red and white hybrid. Very smooth.

BOTTOM LINE

I can safely say that this is a viable option for anyone who wants to test the waters, so to speak. If you’re new to kratom and want to get an all-encompassing idea of what the Ayurvedic herb has in store for you then Shaman Nation’s got you covered.
