The Socratic method is a technique by which an individual can develop skills and critical thought by questioning everything and arriving at a deeper truth. If this sounds at all familiar that’s because it’s a method that is at the heart of the kratom community.
On our blog, we always seek to question the motives, intent and authenticity of kratom vendors. We also ask tough questions about kratom legality and the value (or lack thereof) of ethnobotanicals. In so doing, we hope to shed a light on any bad actors and underscore the importance of vetting your suppliers.
With hundreds, if not thousands, of sellers actively distributing kratom throughout the United States and beyond, it is inevitable that there will be a fair number of shady businesses who are just looking to turn a quick buck.
On the opposite side of the coin, there will always be companies that genuinely care about the quality and consistency of their product. As Socrates himself once said, “It is not living that matters, but living rightly.” The best vendors adhere to this motto and aim to keep their customers safe and healthy.
Socratic Solutions are one example of a top-tier kratom supplier. They are billed as a vertically integrated importer, manufacturer and retailer of alternative health products that are devoted to providing customer value.
But in order to truly understand what they’re all about let’s delve deeper and question everything.

Located in Lithia, FL, this B2B and B2C retailer supplies powdered Mitragyna speciosa leaf to a regional and international audience. Their Hillsborough County headquarters serve as a storage hub for their vast array of kratom powder, capsules, crumbles and more.
All of their kratom leaf is finely micronized for a smooth and dependable brewing experience. Their crumbles can be chewed and chased with a smoothie or almond milk for a pleasant aroma.
Socratic Solutions Premium Kratom comes in the following strains and blends:
My personal faves are Green Borneo and White Elephant, respectively. Their Green Elephant is admittedly stronger than their Borneo, but it’s a bit too jittery for my taste. I tend to avoid fast strains that make me edgy. If I wanted to be edgy I could just double up on my morning Arabica beans after all.
By contrast, Green Borneo is mild and offers a duration that’s nearly as long as their Elephant kratom (about 5 hours, give or take). The same is true of their White Elephant kratom capsules. The aroma reminds me of a biscotti…if a biscotti contained lots of nutmeg and fresh tea leaves.
Their White Elephant kratom is fragrant enough to penetrate the capsules and is the ideal tonic before attending any social engagement.
All of their strains start at $7.12 for an ounce with four ounces going for $22.79, eight ounces selling for $35.14 and a half kilo going for $56.99. Those who are looking to buy bulk kratom powder will be excited to find that they can purchase as many as five kilos.
One kilo will run you just $76 while three kilos will cost a mere $213.75. If you buy five kilos you save a ton since the discounted bulk price is just $308.75! This is definitely a vendor that belongs on any best bulk kratom vendor list.
As a relatively new vendor to the marketplace, Socratic Solutions hasn’t generated the kind of buzz that’s typical of a top-tier seller. But that should not deter those who want to get a good deal on some fresh leaf.
No news is good news, eh?
All signs point to them being a legitimate source for speciosa. They are BBB accredited and have not attracted any negative attention or consumer complaints as of this writing.
For the sake of this review I’ve sampled five of their strains, each of which struck me as a worthy choice for any seasoned kratomite. Some of them seem particularly geared toward the noob who is trying kratom for the first time.
As I mentioned before, Green Borneo and White Elephant were among the items that I purchased. The others were Green Dayak, Tri-Blend Maeng Da Bali and Yellow Cambodian. I should start by saying that I have a special affinity for green vein kratom, so it’s no surprise that Green Dayak would be my top pick of the three.
Personal biases aside, the Tri-Blend was quite the treat; even though I don’t generally concoct mixtures for fear that each strain will counteract the other, I’ve gotta say this blend works. It’s strong, long-lasting and very reivigorating.
I half-expected the Yellow Cambodian to be another tired faux-strain like the burnt offerings you sometimes get when you pick up Gold Bali at a smoke shop. Fortunately, this was not the case at all. Yellow Cambodian possessed a vibrant color, a subtle fragrance and a pleasant enough taste.
After tossing and washing, it came on after 15 minutes and really blew my hair back. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who plans to hit the gym after enjoying their morning tea. A very joyous leaf, to say the very least.
