The kratom industry has made it easier than ever to figure out which kratom brands are the best. With many of the top kratom vendors offering kratom sample packs and free gifts to first-time customers, it’s a piece of cake to decide what kratom strain is for you and which ones aren’t really your cup of tea.
Some vendors sell multi-strain variety packs which enable you to try out multiple forms of kratom powder. This is one of the most effective methods for determining what works for you. It’s also a big money saver since you get up to 50 grams of each strain (green, red and white varieties) for a flat rate.
In this way you get to sample different vein colors in small quantities, rather than wasting a ton of money on bulk kratom capsules of one strain that may not produce the effects you desire. Consider it a cost-effective smorgasbord that serves as a pu-pu platter of premium grade M. speciosa tea.
If you’re a die hard kratomite who’s accustomed to the unique aromas of several different strains, you can still broaden your horizons by purchasing split kilos from vendors who stock newer, more exotic kratom blends.
Although variety is more accessible than ever, that doesn’t mean that you will find your favorites effortlessly. Granted, there are numerous sources for detailed information about various kratom brands and there are countless user reviews on platforms such as Reddit and Kratom Connoisseurs.
But that doesn’t mean you should trust every word you hear about a given brand. Those who are looking to deal with only the best need to rely on thorough research in order to arrive at an accurate list of the best kratom brands.
We’ve taken a lot of the headache out of that process for you by compiling the following guide. However it is always a good idea to do your own independent research before buying kratom online. Talk to your fellow kratom enthusiasts, see who they’ve been buying from, what strains they recommend and so forth.
The picks on this list are eight of the most awesome sellers to leave a lasting impression on us in the latter half of the 2010s. Each of these suppliers has been vetted, verified and found to be of the very finest quality.
Let’s dive right in!

With the Year of the Pig still oinking in our rear view mirror we cast our minds back to the crème of the crop, those vendors who truly stood out among the hundreds of brands peddling their wares in the U.S.
Happy Hippo is one of the oldest brands around and one of the most reliable. They have cornered the market when it comes to proprietary blends, investing heavily in R & D to engineer kratom teas that are geared toward a range of consumer needs. From their best kratom strains of 2019 to their longtime bestsellers like Fire Hippo (Red Malay) and Mellow Yellow (Yellow Sunda), this supplier has been cooking up awesome combos for some time and they show no signs of slowing down.
Like most people, we’re kratom crazy for Kraken Kratom’s colorful mascot, but our love for these cats runs deeper than a mere logo design. Just one glimpse of their vibrant kratom teas and affordable pricing will have you screaming, “Release the Kraken!”
Of all the vendors we’ve covered on this blog, no one has so consistently fulfilled our expectations as the folks behind MitraGaia. That’s why they have repeatedly landed on our year-end lists of the top kratom picks.
This Jacksonville operation frequently introduces new products and gives out coupon codes good for as much as 25% off your total at checkout. More importantly, their kratom powder is lab tested and meets proper GMP compliance standards.
Smiley Time Herbals’ Mr. Smiley Kratom is a members only brand that scored major points with us in 2019 for their full bodied White Banjo and stellar Gold Bali strains. In our review, we talked about all of their exceptional deals which have included limited time cyber sales and much more.
PDO Botanicals stocks a clutch of outstanding products including their Ultra High Potency Full Spectrum CBD Tincture and 49% Alkaloid Crystalline Kratom Extract in both powder and capsule form. But it’s their kratom powders that are something to write home about.
Their strains include Cambodian Maeng Da, Green Riau Chopped Leaf and Green Northern Sumatra. What’s more, you can pick up a Creme of the Crop Variety Pack consisting of 310 grams total (30 grams each of nine strains plus 10 grams of their 49% kratom extract) for under $120.
Another brand that’s frequently found favor among the Kratom Crazy staff, Phytoextractum is one of the longest-lasting suppliers in the marketplace. With 15+ strains in their catalog and a wealth of purchasing options for first-time patrons, they represent the gold standard for those buying small quantities.
In last year’s Phytoextractum review, I wrote about how their prices were pretty middle of the road which is true, but you get what you pay for. And what you pay for is premium grade kratom tea from some of the most remote corners of the Tropics.
As I said in last year’s vendor breakdown, Socratic Solutions has the bulk prices and distinctive strains that every seasoned kratomite can’t get enough of. If you’ve been searching for a dependable source for kratom kilos look no further.
One kilogram goes for an all-time industry low of just $76 while the seriously voracious kratom enthusiast can snatch up three kilos for under $215.00. As if that’s not reason enough to check them out consider the fact that their product line boasts 20 idiosyncratic strains.
NaturalOrganix.com has become one of my favorite haunts. Whenever I run out of my own stash, I place an order with them and typically receive a box full of gifts such as bumper stickers and cool window laminates.
Of all the vendors on this list, I’d have to say that NaturalOrganix.com is the most responsible and professional. They have gone above and beyond to avoid the shrewd marketing schemes and bogus claims typical of so many fly-by-night sellers.
Urban Ice Organics is a brand that you can trust, not just for potency but, also, for purity and transparency. Each batch is submitted for third party laboratory testing and comes with detailed instructions for dosage and so forth.
Many of the brands mentioned above offer wholesale kratom distribution. Their partnerships with smoke shops, headshops and filling stations across the United States have made it convenient for many users to get their hands on some fresh herb without waiting on a delivery for days.
Of course it should go without saying that there are many local shops that do not do business with kratom vendors directly, often opting to order their full inventory from third party entities.
For those who are living in areas where these kratom brands remain unavailable, there are plenty of other options to choose from. They include all of the following:
Not everyone believes in the hype surrounding extracts. In fact, many users balk at the notion of vendors optimizing or enhancing kratom powder by extracting key alkaloids before inserting them back into their microgrinds.
If you’re curious about this phenomenon and want to try some liquid kratom extract or kratom extract powder for yourself then check out these top choices for kratom extract. As you’ll see, they have a formidable selection and some decent buying options.
The people have spoken and they seem to be of a similar mind as I am. Among those who voted for the top kratom vendors on Reddit, the vast majority placed Happy Hippo Herbals and Kraken Kratom in their top three.
Their number one pick was Botanical Bunny, a wildly versatile brand with a diverse product line and multiple payment methods. It’s also worth noting that Kratom Crazy landed securely in their top five. Apologies for all the noise, we were just tooting our own horn.
Other picks include the following:
