Sunstone Organics has been providing consumers with top shelf kratom and CBD for quite awhile now, but there has been some consternation surrounding their pricing and purchasing options.

Between their high price point and the potential Salmonella adulteration of their products earlier this year, customers have been more than a little concerned about the viability of ordering from them. That’s why we’ve put together this comprehensive review of the brand and its catalog.

Let’s see what they’re truly all about.

WHO ARE THEY?

Located in Springfield which is nestled in the gorgeous Southern Willamette Valley, Sunstone is an Oregon-based kratom vendor that’s devoted to bringing only the best Mitragyna speciosa solutions to the American marketplace.

Their dedication to purity and transparency was reflected in their voluntary recall of white vein kratom in both powder and capsule form earlier this year. They have been compliant with Consumer Affairs and health officials, and have been making strides where quality control is concerned.

They maintain both an online store and an in-person outlet store where folks from the Pacific Northwest can come to meet them one on one, and see for themselves what the company has in stock.

This independently-owned business supplies kratom products directly to consumers, but they also supply a number of retail outlets across the United States. So, you’ll never have to go far to find some of your favorite strains.

WHAT DO THEY HAVE TO OFFER?

Unsurprisingly, their Sunstone Organics Maeng Da kratom is a non-stop bestseller, but they’ve got plenty of other items to choose from. Their kratom strains include all of the following:

  • Green Vein
  • Red Vein
  • Red Maeng Da
  • White Vein
  • White Maeng Da

I know what you’re thinking, that’s slim pickins compared to most of their competitors in the space, but considering their commitment to quality and purity it kind of makes sense. After all, it’s a lot cheaper and easier to ensure that six individual strains are uncontaminated than it is to lab test 20+ exotic strains.

WHAT’S IT GONNA COST ME?

Those who are looking to buy bulk kratom powder can pick up a pound for $130 or a kilo for a whopping $230. Anyone who orders with any regularity online knows that this is highway robbery. You’d be hard-pressed to find more than one other vendor who charges that much for a kilo.

Bear in mind that the vast majority of sellers offer a kilo for no more than $135 and some of the best sell it for under $90.00. On the plus side, you can order small for a better deal; their 100 gram pouches start at nine bucks and you can get as many as 150 kratom capsules for $30.99.

Sunstone Kratom also stock sample packs which get you 10 grams each of four individuals strains for $24.00. Of course, if you do the math this isn’t much of a deal either, but at least it enables the pennywise patron to explore their inventory without wasting a fortune on bulk.

PAYMENT METHODS

Alas, this is just one more area in which Sunstone fails its clientele. Where others in the industry accepts cryptocurrency, Google Pay, CashApp and credit cards, this seller only accepts checks or money orders.

SHIPPING & CUSTOMER SERVICE

The good news for those who are taking a gamble on this company is that they ship your package the same day they receive payment. For this reason, you can generally expect your order to arrive within 1-2 business days. They charge a Flat Shipping Rate of $5 and ship via USPS Priority Mail.

If you don’t see your package when you expect it to arrive then give them a shout and they’ll be happy to help you track it. You can always call them at their direct phone line and talk to the owners personally. They provide prompt responses to all issues and work to resolve any problems you may have.

If there’s one good thing I can say about these guys it’s that they are personable and smart. They know their Mitragyna speciosa like they know the back of their hand. If you’re new to the space they’ll walk you through the differences between strains and get you set up with something that suits your needs.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

Any Sunstone Organics Kratom Reddit post illustrates their customers’ unflappable affection for their products and customer support staff. They have scored major points for their congeniality. Alas, the same cannot be said of their price point.

As one user puts it, “I know that you really like this vendor and you have indicated before that capsules are your preferred method of administration for various practical reasons. BUT for the benefit of those who are lurking and not participating I have done a bit of math.

“Using the capsules and the figures you have provided: $130 for a pound or 454gm is 28 cents per gram. If I take 4 gms per dose that is over a dollar per dose. 4 doses per day puts me at over $4 per day just for my Kratom.”

In the past, we’ve reviewed their Oregon outlet and gushed about how nice the clerks are and how great their kratom was. But it’s important to note that there is a big difference between a brick-and-mortar shop upcharging so they can pay the rent versus an online store price gouging anyone who buys their stuff on the Internet.

BOTTOM LINE

If you want a lotta bang for you buck, you’re barking up the wrong tree. Sunstone Kratom may be potent and it may be all-natural, but nothing that grows freely in the earth should be sold at such an absurd cost to those it could potentially help.
