ONLINE OASIS OR A WASTE OF TIME?
Tropical Kratom is another one of the new kids on the block in the kratom space. They have only been around for a very short amount of time and, as such, the kratom community is curious about where they land in terms of quality and quantity.
I’m always stoked to try new kratom vendors because I feel like kratom start-ups have the potential to fill the void left by older kratom companies. I’ll never forget what it was like when Kratom Crazy started out and that urge to differentiate ourselves from other kratom distributors.
At the time, none of the big kratom vendors online were offering Akuamma Powder, so we had the distinction of being one of the first to add it to our online store. Today, this remains the first thing that jumps out at me when I’m reviewing a kratom site—what do they do differently than us?
Below, I will share with you all that I’ve learned about Tropical Kratom, their company, their products and their mission statement. I’ll take you through all of the pros and cons so that you’ll have a better idea of who they are and what they’re all about.
Let’s get crackin’!
WHO ARE THEY?
Tropical Kratom is a Kansas-based operation with very little online presence. They do not appear to have a Facebook profile or their own place on Reddit. Despite this fact, they claim to be a success, writing, “You don’t grow as fast as we do without offering the best kratom products and even better customer service. We are extremely proud to offer both of these to our loyal customers, every single day.”
Kratom is currently legal in the state of Kansas and while pending legislation could classify this herbal stimulant as a Schedule I drug, state lawmakers are doing all that they can to keep it legal.
WHAT DO THEY HAVE TO OFFER?
Tropical Kratom has all of the usual suspects from white strains and red strains to yellow and green strains. They offer White Bali, White Maeng Da, White Malay, Red Bali, Red Maeng Da, Red Malay Kratom, Green Bali, Green Maeng Da, Green Malay and Gold Maeng Da Kratom.
There is nothing new or exotic about any of these strains, but not everyone is looking for something novel. For those who are looking for premium kratom powder, Tropical Kratom’s product line may be just the ticket.
What got me excited upon visiting their online store was the merch. I’m a big believer in supporting the brands that enrich your life. If a band’s music got me through hard times, I’d gladly wear their T-shirt with pride. Same goes for ma & pa businesses who can use the human billboard to pimp their wares.
Tropical Kratom has a full line of colorful T-shirts and hoodies from Lazy Dogs Apparel. If you’re one of them soul-patch-sporting know-it-alls who just loves to talk people’s ears off about M. speciosa, there’s the scholarly, “Ask Me About Kratom” shirt or if you want to embrace your inner-child, there’s the “I’m Cuckoo for Kratom” tee. All of their shirts are reasonably priced starting at $19.95 which brings us to our next point.
WHAT’S IT GONNA COST ME?
All of Tropical Kratom’s kratom veins start at $9.95 for 28 grams. This isn’t an uncommon price point among kratom startups as they figure they can reel people in with a low price before jacking up prices. Whether Tropical Kratom will end up doing the same remains to be seen.
Those in the market for bulk kratom powder, you won’t be too pleased with your purchasing options here. 120 grams will run you just under a hundred bucks and Tropical Kratom does not offer kilos.
That being said, all legit kratom vendors have their positives as well as their negatives. In the case of Tropical Kratom, they provide their customers with a free sample on each and every order that it placed. This gives users a chance to try a small dose of different kratom strains.
SHIPPING & CUSTOMER SERVICE
Tropical Kratom pride themselves on their dedicated customer support. They offer multiple options for getting in touch with them from a short form one can fill out on their site, an administrator’s email address or a phone number (323-208-0204).
They give their customers free USPS shipping on all ground shipping in the United States. Additional fees are charged for alternate options such as 2-day delivery or International. Most orders arrive within three business days.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
As I mentioned before, Tropical Kratom hasn’t done much to build their brand online. Although they peddle merch as much as Maeng Da and the like, they haven’t invested in a social media presence and they haven’t attracted the kind of chatter typical of big name vendors like Kraken Kratom or Soul Speciosa.
One user on I Love Kratom calls their White Vietnam Kratom an “excellent mood lifter,” but cautions against the strong sedating effects of large doses. They recommend Red Bali for those using kratom strictly for pain relief, but stress that this kratom strain does not elicit any other effects.
This customer also enjoyed the easy-to-seal design of their silver pouches and called their product high quality. Alas, this same individual suggested that their price was far too high.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH TROPICAL KRATOM
As someone who spends an inordinate amount of time researching and writing articles, I often find myself suffering from brain fog or getting distracted by my family and their shenanigans.
I’m no old man or anything.
But life’s daily stressors can take their toll on your skull nugget.
This kind of mental fatigue can often be remedied by using natural supplements. Personally, I prefer the aromatherapy of a good kratom strain for this purpose.
For this reason, I placed an order for 28 grams of Tropical Kratom’s Gold Maeng Da. Sure enough, the package arrived with a sample packet of Green Malay. I’m happy to report that both of these strains worked well for improving focus and improving my overall mood.
4 grams of Gold Maeng Da made me alert, enthusiastic and able to readily recall information that was pertinent to the blog post I was working on. The Green Malay helped me to take the edge off at the end of the night, serving as a nice counterpart to the yellow vein.
Green veins have a reputation for their euphoric effects and Tropical Kratom’s Green Malay was no exception. It was a relaxing and mood-stabilizing strain that helped me to get some sleep after cranking out three blog posts in one day.
All things considered, I’d have to say that Tropical Kratom is worth checking out. Yes, they’re fairly new to the scene and no, they haven’t gotten a lot of buzz on the Internet, but there’s a first for everything. Try them out today and share your own thoughts online.
