If you’re tired of weak kratom capsules and questionable kratom shots then Break Free Herbs just might be the right vendor for you. They carefully curate their catalog, choosing only the freshest ingredients and testing each batch for optimal alkaloid concentrations.

Those who buy kratom locally in California love this independent brand’s selection and deals. Their return customers have made Break Free’s White Maeng Da Kratom a bestseller, and the company itself has been given a four-star rating on social media.

Their popularity is due, in no small part, to the demand for something better than what you average smoke shop or filling station has to offer. Consumers have cried out, asking for quality and consistency. Break Free Herbs has answered their call.

In other words, they’ve enabled the public to break free from the bunk products typical of headshops. Today we’ll take a look at their full product line and break down what made them stand out in an admittedly over-saturated marketplace.

We’ll also fill you in on some things you’ll want to know before purchasing from their site. As you’ll see below, not everything is on the level with this once-great brand.

WHO ARE THEY?

Located in Campbell, CA, Break Free Herbs was one of the highest rated local suppliers on the West coast. Billed as a beauty and personal care business on Facebook, they made it their responsibility to source fresh leaf and kavylactone-rich extracts.

Founded in 2016, they began building a reputation for their powerful Mitragyna speciosa over the next year, at which point things began to sour.

WHAT HAVE THEY GOT TO OFFER?

This seller offers a wide range of bespoke herbs that keep things interesting whenever you visit their online store. Their kratom strains include all of the following:

This is obviously a very limited selection, but that hardly matters given the potency and purity of all four teas. What really distinguishes this vendor from others in the industry is their full collection which include Akuamma, Cordyalis extract (10:1), Hawaiian Baby Woodrose seed, Kanna powder, 20x Kanna extract, Kava paste, Mitragyan hirsuta and Valerian Root extract tablets.

All of their products come in safe and secure packaging and are stored at cool temperatures in a top of the line clean room.

WHAT’S IT GONNA COST ME?

Their kratom powders range in price from $23 to $27 for 100 grams. Customers can contact the seller to find out about available bulk pricing. 100 grams for $23 ain’t bad; it’s not the best deal around, but it’s far from the worst.

To put it into perspective, Kraken Kratom sells 112 grams of White Maeng Da powder for $44.99 and MitraGaia sells 250 grams for $30, so Break Free Herbs’ price lands squarely within the middle of the spectrum. It’s neither too expensive nor too affordable, it’s just…okay.

TOP KRATOM STRAIN

Since they currently stock only four different teas it was easy enough to sample all of them. After enjoying each, I’d definitely say the best choice is their Super Green Malay. It earns the “super” moniker by delivering strength and an extended duration.

SGM is known for being a very chill strain, one that unlocks the best qualities of both red vein and white vein speciosa. This one was no exception—a well-balanced, full spectrum (pardon the misleading expression), long-lasting aroma at a mid-range price tag.

SHIPPING & CUSTOMER SERVICE

All orders automatically receive free Priority Mail shipping (or do they? Read on…) which generally arrives within 2-3 business days…or does it? Each order comes with tracking information and delivery confirmation, so you’ll never have to wonder if someone made off with your package or if it was sent to the wrong address.

They give you two options for getting in touch with them if you have any questions or grievances—online contact form and email address, respectively.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

Despite a high ranking and a local reputation, not everyone has been so pleased with this outfit. One user writes, “So far it has been 9 days since i ordered website says 2 to 3 days. Sent numerous emails and Facebook messeges to find out when i could expect it as there has not been anything added to the tracking info no response to anything. Horrible customer service to not at least make up an excuse or say something i mean anything but no they just take your money and ignore you.”

Another user said, “I also ordered 9 days ago. Still nothing… Emailed and got no response. Called the number associated with the email and it was for receptionist? All very strange to me and starting to think I got ripped off. Not very happy about this.”

PROS

  • Excellent catalog
  • Reasonable prices
  • Lab tested products
  • Fast shipping

CONS

  • Limited payment options
  • No satisfaction guarantee
  • Does not disclose lab results
  • No free shipping
  • No refunds or returns available

THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE BUYING

We’ve already covered the positives where this seller is concerned, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t err on the side of caution. It always raises a red flag if a vendor refuses to offer refunds of any kind. Furthermore, the top kratom suppliers are renowned for their 30 day money back guarantee.

It is unfortunate that Break Free eschews these common customs for their own unknown reasons. It’s also more than a little crooked for a seller to advertise free shipping on their product pages only to hide the truth in fine print.

To wit: At the bottom of their homepage you’ll find a link to a Shipping & Returns sub-page. When you click on it you are redirected to a page that informs you that standard shipping costs $4 which is to be borne by the purchaser.

These are factors which should be considered before dealing with them. That being said, I have had no problem with them on the two occasions that I’ve ordered stuff from them. My package arrived on time, more or less, and I was pleased with the results.

Still, every consumer should do their research before buying kratom online. It is always a good idea to request lab results from the supplier in question. If they refuse to furnish those results then they are likely a shady company that’s lying about their lab testing.

It’s also a good idea to shop around and check sites like Reddit to see who people are ordering from. In an industry like ours there is no shortage of options to choose from. Never allow yourself to feel shackled to any one brand.

BOTTOM LINE

Although I have had a mostly positive experience with this brand in the past, I can’t recommend them to anyone who wants a guarantee of quality or consistency. It is obvious from even some cursory research that they have proven out to be an unreliable company.
