Botanical Products Inc is a Canadian kratom vendor with an expansive if largely unknown online store. Botanical Products Inc is exactly what its name would suggest – a members-only direct-to-consumer supplier of crushed leaf kratom, kratom powder, kratom tea bags, and more.
Little is known about this vendor and its brand, aside from what is advertised on its websites. You can visit it at: https://botanicalproductsinc.com. There you will be able to sign up for a free membership, which will enable you to gain access to shop.botanicalkratom.com, its e-commerce platform for kratom sales.
If you’ve heard of this brand in passing, you may be wondering what it’s all about. We are here to tell you everything we can about this North American operation in our comprehensive kratom vendor review.
Botanical Products Inc may sound more familiar than it actually is; this is surely by design, as its name is awfully similar to Botanical Remedies, a popular Tennessee kratom supplier with a five-star rating and a sizable following on social media.
Unlike its downhome counterpart, Botanical Products is located in a major metropolitan city not far from Toronto. It specializes primarily in powdered and encapsulated herbs, such as ashwagandha, black kohosh, and milk thistle. Its kratom collection is exclusive to members and is inaccessible to casual visitors.
Botanical Kratom may compare favorably to certain Canadian brands, but it is easily eclipsed by most US kratom vendors. This is not merely an overpriced brand, it is a brand devoid of bulk kratom buying options. You will find no kratom kilos or split kilos at its online shop.
Where most of its United States competitors maintain a strong social media presence and garner praise from Google reviewers, Botanical Products Inc lacks so much as a single positive write-up on any of the online kratom forums. More on this in a bit.
If there is one thing that distinguishes Botanical Products Inc from other vendors on the market it is its wide variety of items, including organic herbal teas, bath bombs, essential oil, apparel, skin balm, and more. There are undoubtedly other attributes that set this one apart from the pack, but one has to cut through a thick morass of blustering blather to get to any of them. For example, Botanical Products Inc’s About Us page features sentences with little meaning, but each is jam-packed with advertising buzz words and inspirational phrases.
This vendor currently offers a small yet diverse variety of kratom strains, including green vein, red vein, and white vein kratom powder. There are many plain leaves and enhanced strains to choose from, such as Green Horned Leaf, Green Indo, Green Vein Combo, Maeng Da, Red Horned Leaf, Red Vein, Red Vein Combo, and Super White.
Many of these strains are also available in capsule form; kratom capsules are an accessible method of use for many in the Mitra community. Encapsulated kratom is easy to use, easy to conceal, and may mask the naturally bitter aroma of raw plant matter.
The web design for its kratom store is extremely old school, with microscopic writing, minuscule icons, and cluttered menus. There is nothing particularly attractive or ergonomic about its layout or overall presentation. The same is true of Botanical Products Inc’s general website, which is neither easy to navigate nor particularly eye-grabbing.
Like many of its direct competitors, Botanical Products Inc provides kratom same-day shipping on orders placed before 4 PM EST (Eastern Standard Time). This vendor’s carrier options may vary depending on which warehouse is fulfilling your purchase items.
Prices tend to start at $39.99 for thirty-eight grams of kratom powder. You can get sixty-six grams for $49.99, which is approximately what low-cost kratom suppliers typically charge for a ½ kilo (five hundred grams). You can get one hundred seventy-eight grams for $79.99, which equates to nearly forty-five cents per gram. This is significantly more than the industry average, which falls somewhere between ten and twelve cents per gram.
Those seeking bulk kratom pricing will be disappointed, as the largest purchasing option is three hundred forty-six grams for $129.99, which is more than what most e-commerce sites charge for a full kratom kilo (one thousand grams). For example, Amazing Botanicals charges between $99.99 and $109.99 for a kilo, while Mitragaia charges $120.00.
Botanical Products currently accepts American Express, Apple Pay, Discover, MasterCard, PayPal, and VISA. Additional payment methods may be available upon request. We urge potential buyers to discuss all payment options with a customer service rep prior to completing a transaction.
Unlike its competitors, Botanical Products Inc does not maintain a presence on Facebook or Instagram. This vendor does not invite visitors to sign up for a newsletter to reap special rewards. In short, there are no promotional opportunities to speak of, whether you’re looking for a discount code or a kratom giveaway.
You can contact Botanical Products Inc any time if you have questions, but don’t expect an immediate response. We did not receive a prompt reply to our inquiry about third-party lab results and do not anticipate a more expedited response in the future. That being said, there are a number of ways to connect with this vendor. They include an online contact form as well as the following.

There is an aggravating dearth of consumer feedback regarding this brand. However, one Reddit member posted about their first two “burns” with this brand, writing, “It was some of the best I have ever had.” Another user said, “I currently have their Red Vein and Super Green Indo … I found both of them to just be OK, but that’s me. Great customer service and some of the best packaging (tins) I have seen.”
Another member wrote, “I got their green, red and maeng da, and found them all to be really good! Not the best but definitely up there, especially the MD.” Yet another user countered, writing, “I can see that. But for the price, I think we can agree there is better value out there.”
Still, another member wrote, “I’m not sure why anyone in the US would order from Canadian vendors when we have so many good vendors here (and better prices). That’s just my opinion though.” Others agreed, writing, “I hear ya, I guess I fell for the glowing reviews on YouTube. I guess their higher prices also made me think ‘better quality but I don’t think that’s the case. At least in my experience.”
After a representative of Botanical Products Inc posted to Reddit about how it has the “best botanicals available online,” a longtime community member wrote, “How is this a deal? I see a lot of overpriced kratoms on this website and a few other random botanicals that are pretty average/overpriced compared to elsewhere.”
This vendor makes no claims about third-party laboratory analysis, nor does it post any certificates of analysis on either of its websites. There is no way to verify that this brand submits its kratom powder to independent third-party entities, nor is there any way for the casual consumer to know whether they are ordering pure, unadulterated kratom powder.
In light of its high prices, PR-style About Us page, and lack of credentials, we are inclined to classify Botanical Products Inc as an illegitimate outfit. This vendor does not disclose its refund policy, nor does it promise a satisfaction guarantee.
Botanical Kratom is not backed by AKA approval, nor has Botanical Products Inc participated in the AKA’s GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) program. This may turn some discerning consumers off, but it isn’t the most uncommon choice. In fact, many online vendors opt to test their products in-house or via a private laboratory to avoid scrutiny or theft.
That said, the GMP program is vital to the future of kratom legality, as it establishes standards by which kratom processors must adhere. These requirements apply to every step of kratom processing, from manufacturing and labeling to marketing, distribution, and verification.
In summary, Botanical Products Inc is a less-than-stellar brand with minimal support from the kratom community. It is not affiliated with the AKA, nor does it disclose its testing status. With its staggering prices, limited variety, and utter lack of transparency this vendor is at the bottom of the food chain in our expert opinion.
