Where to Buy Kratom in California

If estimates from the American Kratom Association are roughly accurate and 15 million people use kratom in the US, that would mean there are almost 2 million kratom users in California. There are few kratom laws on the books and plenty of small business owners, including online vendors, willing to meet the local demand.

Local jurisdictions are one of the few ways buying kratom in California is still illegal. The cities of San Diego and Oceanside instituted kratom bans as part of their response to the “spice” public health scare in 2016.

Both cities, however, are actively considering full or partial repeal of these bans. This would bring these cities more in alignment with current attitudes toward kratom, including momentum toward federal legislation that would legalize and regulate kratom. These cities have also been pretty lax about enforcement, given this recent study suggesting nearly half of the smoke and head shops in San Diego sell kratom.

Curious about where to buy kratom in the rest of the state? We’ve put together a list of some of the best kratom sources in California—including brick-and-mortar shops and online vendors.

With Golden Monk, there is no catch. Buying kratom online in California is the way to go.

Why It’s Better to Order Kratom Online

Although we love to visit a good smoke shop, there are a lot of benefits to ordering kratom online even beyond avoiding traffic congestion and other errand-running headaches. What makes buying online such a great way to get high-quality kratom? Take a look.

You can verify authenticity by looking at the Certificates of Analysis (COAs)

Golden Monk guarantees that we only sell kratom made from the highest-quality trees, cultivated in the lush forests of Indonesia. We maintain rigorous lab testing to ensure the safety and purity of our products, but why should you believe us? Because you can check it out for yourself!

Request a Certificate of Analysis for your product and you’ll get a detailed lab analysis of the exact amounts of all ingredients in your kratom.

Enjoy stable prices through direct sales from vendors–instead of through intermediaries

Not only does shopping online make it easier to compare products and prices, but you’ll enjoy more stable prices from one purchase to the next. Sure, online vendors can increase their prices on occasion, but retail price tags are all over the place.

You’ll also get around the overhead costs of running a successful brick-and-mortar shop. This results in cheaper prices overall for you the consumer, especially when placing larger orders and/or taking advantage of loyalty reward programs.

Experience the convenience and confidence of ordering online—including from your phone

When you shop online, you can also explore a manufacturer’s full line of kratom products and who these products are designed to speak to. It’s not like standing in the aisle of the smoke shop, trying to quickly search for product information while squinting at the fine print of a half-ounce bottle.

Golden Monk’s Top 5 Best-Selling Kratom Products in California

Check out some of our best-selling products that kratom users in the state love to get from Golden Monk!

Kratom Capsules

Not a fan of gummies and their texture? Don’t have time to brew loose leaf kratom into the perfect cup of tea every day? As many people in California have discovered for themselves, our Kratom Capsules are likely the answer for you. It may take a few extra minutes to take effect, but some users find this delayed release enhances their kratom experience. Available in 250, 500, and 1,000 capsule quantities.

Maeng Da Loose Kratom

If you’ve only heard about one kratom strain, there’s a good chance it was Maeng Da. For more than a century, people have recognized that certain kratom trees were better than others for getting through a long day’s work. Maeng Da is the first strain cultivated specifically to optimize kratom’s desired effects. Available in every color vein and sold in quantities ranging from 250 grams to a full kilo.

Green Malay

This ever-popular combination starts with the green vein balance between kratom’s more energizing and soothing extremes. Add in the richness of the Green Malay large leaf cultivar, and you get a kratom strain that fuels your productivity with amazing quality consistency batch after batch. Sold in quantities ranging from 250 grams to a full kilo.

Red Bali

Why do people from California love our Red Bali Kratom so much? The Bali strain harvested in the red-vein stage of the leaf’s growth is a natural pairing that emphasizes the soothing effects on the mind and muscles. Sold in quantities ranging from 250 grams to a full kilo.

Kratom Gummies

We want people to be safe and always use kratom responsibly, but for many kratom users the biggest downside is kratom’s earthy, almost downright bitter, taste. Deliciously flavored Kratom Gummies eliminate this problem entirely. With a very manageable 10mg of extract per gummy, it’s easy to find the perfect serving size. Available in 24-gummy jars.
