Authenticity is hard to come by these days. Western society seems to reward mediocrity more than it rewards innovation, and American industries tend to favor reliable formulas over groundbreaking ideas. Whether we’re talking about trends in pop music or biotechnology, the Billie Eilishes and Elon Musks of the world are few and far between.
That is why it is always so thrilling to encounter a company that values authenticity more than they value their bottom line. Kratomkaps.com is one such company, a US-based kratom vendor who ethically source their plant matter from South East Asia, using sustainable methods.
Their singularity extends beyond their harvesting and manufacturing methods to their transparent labeling. The Disclaimer page of their website clearly states that kratom is not intended for medicinal use and does not qualify as a dietary supplement.
Unlike many of their shoddier contemporaries, Kratom Kaps make no bold claims about the effects of their products.
The following is an overview of what makes them so special, particularly in the current marketplace.

Perhaps best known for their signature Kratom Kaps Malay, this supplier streamlines the buying experience by exclusively offering their strains in powder and capsule form. There are no kratom extracts or kratom tinctures to speak of and you won’t find the words “Ultra Enhanced” anywhere at their online store.
While the rather limited number of exotic strains will likely turn some seasoned users off, there’s something to be said for simplicity. Instead of amassing a wide assortment of goods, these cats have focused their efforts on honing their skills and providing only the highest quality leaf around.
Their bulk kratom powder and kratom capsules are available in the following veins:
Kratom Kaps powder starts at $7.49 for 35 grams with 100 grams going for $16.99. A 300 gram bottle will run you an industry high $45.99. That’s just shy of what many vendors charge for a half kilo (500 grams) which may seem high, but when you consider the reliability of the brand it’s actually worth it.
A bottle of Kratom Kaps Bali capsules starts at just $5.99 for a 20 count, but it caps off at $39.99 for a 300 count. Again, the problem here is how cost-prohibitive this brand can be.
By contrast, many of the top sellers on the market offer split kilos (multiple stains forming a total of 1,000 grams) for as little as $40.00. Obviously, you can do waaay better on the price…but you gotta ask yourself, does it benefit you to save money if you’re sacrificing potency?
As a purveyor of wholesale kratom, Kratom Kaps does not sell to the general public. They will NOT sell to individuals except via a store owner other authorized distributor. This presents a bit of a problem for people who do not have a preexisting relationship with a local proprietor.
Unlike many legit vendors who are GMP compliant, routinely submitting their kratom to third party laboratories, Kratom Kaps does not mention lab testing on their website, nor do they disclose any lab results.
This is troubling, particularly as the nation grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic and the potential health ramifications of the same.
Most online sellers offer a wealth of payment options, such as Bitcoin, CashApp, COD (Cash On Delivery), E-check, PayPal and Zelle. While some of these methods may be provided to third party retailers, they are not something that Kratom Kaps offers to the individual consumer.
In this way, users are unable to retain the level of security and privacy they have come to associate with the online botanical industry.
Kratom Kaps Reddit reviews have been surprisingly negative with many people writing them off as your garden variety smoke shop garbage. This is a bit shocking to me because I am notorious for loathing smoke shop kratom and I found their stuff to be every bit as strong as my top five vendors.
That being said, some bloggers have given them high points and this reviewer is definitely one of them. IMHO, they are definitely far better than more popular brands, such as O.P.M.S. In fact, I would even go so far as to say they beat out Krave and Remarkable Herbs in terms of consistency and potency.
In the interest of full disclosure, I should say that I’m a sucker for green vein kratom. I found their Maeng Da and Green Indo to be every bit as good as my go-to Super Green Malay. They were long-lasting and profoundly invigorating.
The Red Bali is far more bitter than I anticipated, but it’s hardly surprising given the drying process that typically goes into producing a strong red vein kratom variant. As far as the aroma, it was fragrant, floral and made for a bracing pick-me-up when I brewed 5 grams.
As I mentioned at the start of this review, Kratom Kaps are the real deal. They are genuine professionals with exceptional products. After sampling each of their strains, I can honestly say that they have some of the best leaf available. Alas, their prices are a bit insane compared to their peers.
In short, this is NOT the seller you want if you’re looking to save money. But if you’ve got money to burn and you want good stuff give them a shot. You won’t be disappointed.
