Okay, we’ve all heard it before. There are countless places for buying kratom, and while that is most certainly true, it doesn’t negate the fact that finding the right source can seem a bit tricky. As anyone who belongs to online kratom forums can tell you, there is a lot of false or misleading information to sift through.
The Internet is overrun with articles and blog posts about the top kratom suppliers, but not all of them are backed by firsthand experience or user reviews. As such, they may point you in the wrong direction.
Fortunately, we’ve streamlined this process for you by doing a deep dive into the best local shops and their online competitors. As you will see, there is more than meets the eye when it comes to Mitragyna speciosa and its availability here in the United States.
There are also some easy tricks that you can use to get your hands on the highest quality kratom solutions, each of which we’ll explore in today’s post.
If you’re a kratom Tulsa fan who’s looking to score some top shelf plant matter in the Oil Capitol of the World, this is the place to be. We’ve done our research and we think you’ll agree that you’ve got a wide selection to choose from.
So, before you burn the midnight oil (pun very much intended), don’t waste your time reading hundreds of posts by customers who can’t seem to make up their mind about a vendor. Familiarize yourself with this list and you’ll be on your way to a fine cup of brew.

This is the first question that every kratom enthusiast should ask when they’re shopping around. It is absolutely imperative that users comply with federal, state and local laws.
As of 2020, kratom is legal in the state of Oklahoma. After a brief scare in 2014, at which point the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics proposed a ban on the Ayurvedic herb, a widely signed petition succeeded in preventing legislation from being imposed.
At this time there are no restriction on the sale, possession and consumption of M speciosa or its alkaloids—mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, respectively—in any form.
With more than 30 smoke shops and convenience stores stocking speciosa products in the city of Tulsa, Oklahomans have their pick of the litter when it comes to kratom powder and kratom capsules. In the interest of weeding out the low-tier establishments and keeping things on track, we’ve whittled that down to the best of the best.
The following is a list of Tulsa’s creme-of-the-crop for premium grade kratom products:
As you can plainly see, it’s not just headshops that serve as havens for the kratom connoisseur. Top shelf mitra tea can be found at novelty shops, strip malls, vape stores and more. There are even rumors that you can pick up some plain leaf kratom shots at H20asis Float Center and Tea House of Tulsa, the city’s premier oxygen bar and wellness lounge.
Ok, so this isn’t exactly a life hack worthy of Buzzfeed, but it is practical: Do your homework. By joining online kratom communities, you can learn valuable lessons about growing live kratom trees, sourcing kratom from overseas and much, much more.
Online kratom forums are a great place to make friends and find out what people are saying about a given kratom vendor. As M speciosa grows in popularity, there are more and more shady brands hitting the market. By becoming a forum member, you’ll be one of the first to find out whether they are worth the money or really something you should avoid.
When shopping around, you should always ask questions. Don’t be afraid to question the veracity of statements made on a vendor’s homepage. If they make any bold medical claims about their product they’re probably no good. The top sellers understand that kratom is not approved for medicinal use and they present their powders accordingly.
Ask about the differences between strains. If a supplier can’t tell you what makes Maeng Da unique from, say, Red Bentuangie then they are probably only in it for the money. In such cases, you should flag them in your mind and continue to shop around.
That old expression “I know it when I see it” is a cliché for a reason—because it’s totally true. When you’ve found a trustworthy kratom seller you’ll be able to tell that they’re legit by the way they conduct themselves and how they present their catalog.
The best online stores offer clear and transparent information about where their products come from, how they were harvested, whether they were tested by a third party lab for potential adulterants and what makes their products special.
Some of my personal faves provide coupon codes, seasonal discounts and a 30 day money back guarantee. Others offer additional incentives such as affiliate programs and free shipping.
There are multiple methods by which you can hunt down that elusive strain you’ve been dying to try. One simple step is to Google “kratom near me.” Another method that’s just as easy is Kratom Maps. You just punch in your ZIP code, enter the parameters of your search and voila! You’ve hit pay dirt!
Although purchasing kratom from a neighborhood smoke shop can seem like a convenient option it’s not always the safest choice. Many smoke shops source their M speciosa from wholesale distributors who fail to provide detailed info about dosage, origins, lab testing, etc.
In the past, a number of users have fallen ill after using smoke shop brands such as Krypton. These brands have been found to contain synthetic additives and, in some cases, dangerous bacteria.
Your best bet—and the least risky—is to order kratom online from a trusted seller. The following is a short list of the top kratom vendors in 2020:
We have personally vetted each of these suppliers by placing orders, contacting their customer support staff and investigating their business practices. All of them are noteworthy for their overwhelming number of positive reviews, loyal customer base and ever-expanding collections of ethnobotanicals.
Justin at Meridian Botanicals is a knowledgeable naturopath who personally selects each of his herbs from a variety of sources in Southeast Asia and beyond. Mitragaia is one of the highest-rated vendors on the market and one with a helluva record for customer satisfaction.
Pharmacy Dropout may be relatively new when compared to their competitors on this list, but they have left quite the impression on this kratomite. Their ma-and-pa operation is one that was founded on a genuine passion for kratom and compassion for those who need it.
Finally, Urban Ice Organics is the product of Natural Organix, a forward-thinking company that has been vocal in their advocacy of kratom legality and educational initiatives.
Whether you pick up some caps at your local Quickie Mart or place an order online, always make sure that you keep a diary of your experience and get answers to all of your questions. As a community that’s thousands strong, we must demand only the very best. Be safe, be smart and be well.
