Naturally Kratom Austin, AKA Naturally Kratom, is a nationwide kratom brand with a checkered past and an uncertain future. While you can still buy its kratom capsules and kratom extracts at shops, the question of its safety and value remains. We’ll deliver a straight talk on this topic in today’s post.
Naturally Kratom is a product of Triangle Pharmanaturals. This Nevada-based manufacturer launched a line of kratom products in 2016, but it ran afoul of government agencies and suffered some significant consequences. In 2018, the FDA issued the first mandatory recall of its products.
The agency’s decision to mandate a recall came in the midst of a kratom Salmonella outbreak, which was traced back to Naturally Kratom capsules. After repeated requests for a voluntary recall were ignored by company officers, the agency issued its mandate, and agents were deployed to witness the Naturally Kratom’s destruction of tainted kratom.
Naturally Kratom Bali Gold, Green Malay, Red Malay, and White Maeng Da were among the 26+ kratom products removed from circulation during the recall. Since then, the brand has relaunched without a word about its unfortunate run-in with the FDA. No promise of change was given.
The best online vendors tend to bounce back from public outrage with a renewed sense of responsibility. Some issue apologies to their customers and a promise to do better in the future. Triangle Pharmanaturals and Naturally Kratom have not.
No assurance of third-party lab testing appears in its marketing materials, nor do its products carry a seal of approval from the AKA. This vendor has not participated in the AKA’s GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) Standards Program. And no certificates of analysis have been disclosed.
This is often a red flag indicating a brand’s lack of legitimacy. It doesn’t help matters that Naturally Kratom’s packaging is substandard in nature. We find its use of generic fonts and low-grade extract containers to be kind of sketchy. The lack of detailed labeling only compounds matters.
Naturally Kratom is currently available online at: mykratomclub.com. There you will find all of its kratom powder and kratom pills. Naturally Kratom extract is perhaps the most common, but it’s also the least appealing in this reviewer’s opinion.
The Naturally Kratom Tincture is weaker than a glass of warm, flat soda on a hot summer day. That it is referred to as an Extra Strength extract is especially perplexing. White Vein Liquid Extract purports to be an 18:1 ratio extraction, but, tolerance aside, we cannot imagine this striking anyone as potent.
This brand consists of 10+ products, including “organically purified” kratom powder (whatever that means), kratom capsules, and extracts. Most of these are standard specimens, such as Green Malay, Red Bali, and White Maeng Da, but others are more enhanced or creative.
Gummies aren’t exactly groundbreaking (other vendors have come out with kratom edibles), but at least their flavors are unique. Naturally Kratom Gummies flavors include Electric Apple, Sweet Strawberry, and Wild Watermelon. The dosage may be crap (75mg per serving), but it’s still a fun idea for a party.
Many of this brand’s strains are offered in the form of kratom pills, such as Naturally Kratom Green Malay Capsules. This vendor’s kratom pills contain an unspecified amount of kratom. There’s also no way to tell from looking at it whether it’s additive-free.
While it doesn’t seem like Triangle cares much about customer safety, My Kratom Club clearly does. Each of its Naturally Kratom product pages mentions its 100% guarantee, which protects you against inferior or erroneous items. My Kratom Club will issue a refund if its quality is not up to snuff.
Though there have been many Naturally Kratom Red Bali reviews, that doesn’t mean Bali kratom is the best choice for you. Everyone’s different and no two customers will have the exact same experience. Our staff pick for the best and most well-balanced strain is Green Malay.
This kratom powder is oddly smooth for a green vein while delivering all of the requisite daytime attributes that have made it a time-honored favorite. Naturally Kratom Green Malay has a brisk aroma that’s commensurate to green tea, with earthy, citrusy notes and a fennel-like finish. This fragrance lasts longer than most.
Prices start at $17.99 for 28 grams of kratom powder, which is far more than what one would normally pay online. This is a small-batch kratom supplier, so your options are limited. You can score four ounces for $39.99, which is worse than what many sketchy smoke shops would charge.
To put these prices into perspective, Austin Organic Village charges around seven bucks for 20 grams, while New Dawn Kratom only charges $29.99 for 250 grams. Smoke shop brands often run $10 sales on ounces of kratom powder.
A 90-count bottle of Naturally Kratom Capsules will run you $33.99, while a 180-count will cost you $53.99. These prices are simply unacceptable when you consider what headshops are willing to offer. For example, Vapeo2.com sells a 90-count bottle of Bumble Bee Kratom Caps for $22.95, while Klowdzvapor.com charges $41.99 for a 180-count.
You don’t have to settle for second best in an age of such abundance. These are our staff picks for the top two brands of the moment:
MIT45 is number one thanks to its unbeatable blend of key alkaloids and kratom potentiators. The formidable concentration of mitragynine from which it gets its name is truly something special. Unlike other brands that make bold claims and fail to deliver on the hype, MIT45 Kratom does the trick.
If you’re looking for a next-level kratom extract, we recommend trying its latest innovation, MIT GO Black Extra Strength Kratom Gel. This honey-based extract is infused with potentiators like black pepper, orange, and cinnamon. We bet you can’t find a tastier extract on the planet.
If there’s one brand as prominent as MIT45 it’s OPMS Kratom. This prosperous smoke shop staple has been around since long before kratom was well-known in the West and will likely outlast many of today’s most popular brands. OPMS Gold Liquid comes close to the brilliance of MIT45’s own Gold Extract.
What makes this D.C.-based company different than its competitors is its cutting-edge facilities and authentication. Like MIT45, OPMS is a GMP-certified brand with a foothold in the brick-and-mortar space. What’s more, customers have raved about its liquid kratom shots.
If you’ve been thinking about taking a crack at Naturally Kratom, we would strongly advise against it. This brand is not backed by verifiable laboratory analysis, a manufacturer’s guarantee, or any assurance of discretion. There is no evidence to support this brand’s legitimacy.
