Quick Kratom dates back to 2013, which is surprising because most Mitragyna speciosa enthusiasts seem to know little to nothing about them. This actually made us even more curious to discover whatever we could about this vendor.
After all, it’s very rare for a company to make it in the Kratom community for seven years without developing some type of reputation. Stick with us as we uncover as much as possible about this enigmatic vendor.
The first thing you’ll notice upon visiting the Quick Kratom website is that it leaves much to be desired. It’s not terrible, per say, but it’s also not very aesthetically pleasing. We can’t help but feel suspicious when we come across an amateur looking site.
The site’s build is very old school and not in a complimentary way—the text is small, the menus are crammed together, and there is little to no vital information about strain origins, potency, or safety.
Of course, some of the most basic website designs are utilized by vendors that sell truly noteworthy Kratom. Therefore, it’s important to always look beyond the proverbial cover to see whether each company is actually legit.
Is Quick Kratom legit?
Based on our research, we hesitate to answer in the affirmative regarding this vendor’s legitimacy. Although our experience with Quick Kratom has been largely positive it does not negate the fact that its prices are too high.
More alarmingly, Quick Kratom does not appear to submit its products for independent third-party analysis. Consequently, you have no way of knowing whether what you are buying is safe, effective, and adulterant-free.
It is also important to note that this vendor is not affiliated with the AKA (American Kratom Association) or its GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) program.
One of the things we really dislike about this vendor’s website is that there’s no simple menu links to take you to every strain from easily distinguished categories such as Powder, Capsules, etc. Instead, the links are a hodgepodge of strains and categories. We’ve sorted through them to make this easier on you.
Green Malay, Prime Indo, and Stem & Vein are among its top kratom powders, although the latter is less a strain and more a preparation of a given strain.
Green Malaysian, AKA Green Malay, is a green vein kratom powder with origins in Malaysia. However, this is not where it is grown today.
Kratom is illegal in Malaysia under Section 30 (3) of the Poisons Act of 1952. Despite its legal status, the Mitragyna speciosa continues to grow in abundance across the so-called “Wild East.”
Today, select farmers smuggle the cuttings of the Malaysian kratom leaves out of the country and plant their cultivars elsewhere. Most vendors source Green Malay from parts of Indonesia or Papua New Guinea.
Quick Kratom Green Malay is robust and long-lasting, offering a fragrance that’s both flowery and slightly citrusy. Think of a matcha tea cut with a drop of lemon and some fresh parsley.
Prime Indo may sound like yet another example of “premium grade” bait-and-switch, but it is actually one of the finest Indo strains around. Featuring a bold fragrance akin to fresh lawn clippings with a hint of black pepper, Prime Indo is powerful and profound.
Last but not least, we have Stem & Vein, a tea that is made from the materials leftover after traditional kratom sifting. Stem & Vein gets its name from the kratom bones it contains—veins, stems, and fatty tissue, which combine to provide kratom a funnel for nutrients.
These nutrients produce kratom leaves that are sturdier and more robust. They also contain alkaloids that are frequently lost to the manufacturing process when repeatedly sifted.
Therefore, you can expect Stem & Vein to be unique, unpredictable, and more than a bit pungent. At $14 it isn’t exactly priceless, but it’s well worth the upcharge for its pronounced aroma.
This questionable business was among the first to offer kratom extracts on the Internet. In the past, it has listed extract powder and kratom tinctures among its product pages.
Kratom extracts can be potentially dangerous if you don’t know what is in them. Some studies have suggested that there is no way of knowing whether extracts can be appropriately demonstrative given the lack of an “entourage effect.”
For those who don’t know, the entourage effect describes how a group of key indole alkaloids work in concert with one another within kratom powder. Since extracts are notorious for containing extreme concentratins of a single alkaloids—in most cases, mitragynine—there is no evidence to suggest it will be as potent as its natural predecessor.
In Quick Kratom’s case there is no way to test the power of its kratom extracts because they are no longer in stock.
As with most online vendors, Quick Kratom’s powders are available in ounces or kilos. You can pick up an ounce for $12-14.00.
Alternatively, you can get four ounces for $40, eight ounces for $80, sixteen ounces for $150, or a kilo for $290.00.
Needless to say, this is not the vendor you want to turn to for bulk kratom powder. A kilo consists of one thousand grams, which is usually offered for around $120-135 online.
In other words, Quick Kratom charges more than double what the average vendor would charge for something that is neither properly labeled or proven safe.
This vendor does not make it payment options public, preferring instead to keep this information between members. In the interest of respecting its privacy we will not list its full payment information here.
Suffice it to say that Quick Kratom is capable of competing with other vendors who have embraced modern forms of currency and exchange.
To inquire about purchasing methods you can sign up as a member, sign up for Quick Kratom’s email newsletter, or reach out to the company’s customer service team via an online contact form.
This supplier ships all packages via USPS (United States Postal Service), with many orders eligible for an upgrade to Priority Express Mail. You can opt for Standard Mail, Priority Mail, or Express.
The latter is your best bet for an expedient turnaround time, as the post office is currently mired in delayss Priority Express parcels typically arrive within two business days.
As we mentioned earlier, Quick Kratom has a 30-day refund policy, which applies solely to unopened products. Unfortunately, this refund policy is not the same as a money-back guarantee.
The seller in question can deny a refund at will without having to list a reason for their denial. In short, Quick Kratom’s refund policy is there for show.
This vendor is listed on all the top promo code sites, but they don’t often have actual codes when you click on the appropriate pages. However, before you buy Kratom from them, we recommend doing a quick search for any new coupon codes that may have popped up. As of mid-April 2020, they did have at least valid code available.
Orders over $50 ship for free; no coupon code is necessary.
No matter how long we spent digging, we could only find one post from the general public about Quick Kratom. That’s very, very unusual for a vendor that’s been around since 2013. The one applicable thread on Reddit has some positive feedback, but it also makes it clear that Quick Kratom’s prices are not a good deal.
“They were the first vendor I ordered from and to be honest it’s not bad stuff, just higher priced.” Another person said, “They’re cheaper than most head shops, but they still seem pretty pricey.” Without looking at price, we see that some think “it’s definitely decent…their Maeng Da is pretty solid.” The final comment says, “I’ve been using Quick Kratom for months and it’s been great.”
How do high prices and decent quality products translate into the customer service world? The same thread mentioned above reveals a lot. For instance, when one person had an issue, “I emailed them and promptly received a response with an apology and a new 4oz for free sent priority mail that day. I get free samples with every purchase and usually get my orders within 3 days.”
Others agree about the free samples, saying, “they included a free oz. of Borneo White Vein. So big ups to them for that!”
Their refund policy is pretty liberal. They accept most returns of unopened items within 30 days. If there was a mistake on their part, they’ll also cover the cost of return shipping.
It sounds like Quick Kratom actually has decent products. The main problem is that they’re vastly overpriced. If you’re curious and can find a good sale or coupon code, though, you’re likely to receive an extra ounce for free.
We’re not sure why a site that’s been around for so long would hamstring themselves by having a poorly designed site and crazy high prices, but that’s what this vendor has chosen to do.
