Kratom Therapy has been called one of the best kratom vendors of 2020, but their Superior Red Dragon strain has left the kratom community extremely divided. Some have suggested that this so-called supreme variant of red vein kratom powder is anything but superior while others have said it’s the priciest option on the market.
Although its status as premium grade M. speciosa leaf has been challenged by some, its popularity is undeniable. If you’re thinking about trying this wholesale kratom brand, consider my following review your guide.

As I explained in my Red Dragon strain review, this strain is a Malaysian cultivar taken from the cuttings of a Thai kratom tree. Red Dragon is typically cultivated by experienced growers from Kuala Lumpur.
Kratom Therapy Superior Red Dragon is said to be a stronger and, therefore, superior example of this M. speciosa variant, but the veracity of that claim is something that can only be quantified by testing.
You may find Kratom Therapy Superior Red Dragon Kratom Powder for sale at your local convenience store or headshop, but that doesn’t mean you should get it there. When you purchase Mitragyna speciosa products from a smoke shop, you run the risk of getting burned by an inferior brand. What’s worse, you may find that the proprietor of your neighborhood shop refuses to issue refunds.
When you buy kratom online, you can find a vendor who offers a 30 day money back guarantee and a certificate of analysis from a third party laboratory. This ensures that you are protected against substandard plant matter. It also ensures that you are receiving safe and effective kratom.
Red Dragon is regarded as a particularly exhilarating herb, one that may induce clarity and invigoration. However, some users have suggested that Kratom Therapy Superior Red Dragon is no different from other red veins save for the name on the label.
Some have wrongly posited that Superior Red Dragon is a kratom extract, but there is no evidence to support such a claim. Elsewhere, a user said that Superior RD is a kratom blend consisting of multiple in-house strains. This is more accurate and speaks to the alleged potency of this item.
If you’ve searched for the Kratom Therapy brand on the internet, you were probably left stumped by the lack of an official website or online store. Although it is not uncommon for Kratom Therapy out of stock, this does not mean that they went out of business.
On the contrary, this brand continues to thrive despite consumer complaints and poor user reviews. As a matter of fact, Superior Red Dragon is as popular today as it was when it was first introduced.
Kratom Therapy and its product line are manufactured by Nature Therapeutics LLC, a California-based supplement supplier that has a checkered past in the industry. Back in 2016, the U.S. Marshals Service seized $150,000 worth of kratom items from Kratom Therapy, claiming it was harmful and unapproved.
While kratom remains legal throughout the state of California, kratom legality is subject to vary at a local level. In 2019, legislators proposed a ban on the Ayurvedic herb in San Diego County. Fortunately for fans of the leaf, San Diego lawmakers stopped short of criminalizing kratom earlier this year.
The price of Superior Red Dragon has been one of the most debated aspects of this strain with many users calling it cost-prohibitive and a rip-off. Experienced botanical enthusiasts have balked at the steep price tag.
A 50 count pouch of kratom capsules goes for $17.95 while an ounce of raw powder sells for an average of $23.95.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, shipping delays have been a serious consideration for many consumers. In light of recent changes to the US Postal Service, it is important to know how your items will be shipped to you and what carrier will be used.
Unfortunately for those who are buying Superior Red Dragon, this brand is shipped via USPS. In the past, this has not been a problem for customers residing in states where kratom remains legal. However, major delays can be expected on packages that are not deemed a priority by the Postmaster General.
Alas, kratom would fall into this category and already has; I have heard from a growing number of users who have suffered from a lack of reserves with one user asking me if they should bite the bullet and pick up some smoke shop kratom to hold them over.
It is imperative that kratom vendors add additional shipping options at checkout. Now is the time to provide consumers with multiple carrier options such as UPS, Air Mail, DHS and more.
One first-time user said, “I was expecting a horrible taste, but to my surprise I couldn’t really taste anything but lemon! As in, the kratom had zero taste for me. Awesome. But chugging down that mixture was a pain.
“Even after stirring a ton, there were clumps left all over the cup and I had to keep adding water, swishing it around, and trying to get the last of it. At the end, I just used the spoon to scoop up the rest, at it, and washed it down with more water. What a pain in the ass.”
This same user elaborated on the effects achieve, writing, “Around an hour and 45 minutes after my first dose I was feeling pretty good, which surprised me a bit, to be honest. I wanted the feeling to be a touch stronger, so I measured out and dosed one more gram. That got me to the right place.”
They were quick to add, “Unfortunately, I don’t have the kratom experience yet to compare Kratom Therapy’s Superior Red Dragon to any other brands or strains, but I enjoyed the experience.”
Given the dubious origins of this product and the lack of consumer reputation, I would not recommend Superior Red Dragon. There are many sources for Dragon leaf here in the U.S. Don’t settle for second best or anything less. Be safe, be smart and be well.
