Royal Kratom is a California-based vendor that sells products online and in headshops across the country. Despite being a headshop brand, they have attracted a lot of attention for their packaging and unique offerings.
Anyone who is hesitant to try a headshop brand has clearly been paying attention. You can’t go anywhere in the online Kratom community without encountering negative experiences with headshop products. However, that doesn’t mean that every product sold at headshops is terrible. Case in point, many Kratom enthusiasts swear by the O.P.M.S. Liquid Kratom Shots. Therefore, the only way to find out if Royal Kratom is a winner or a dud is to put it to the test.
Royal Kratom sells Kratom capsules, powder, and extracts. This vendor’s website has a very smooth, user-friendly interface that makes it easy to find your preferred products.
This vendor’s pricing structure is relatively simple. We always prefer this because it makes the process of buying Kratom much easier.
When it comes to capsules, the Platinum Ultra-Enhanced 3 packs are $25.99. XL 65-count packs are $17.99. XXL 150 packs retail for $39.99. Their largest offering, the 300-count XXXL packs, are $64.99.
Royal Kratom’s powder comes in one size. You’ll get a 150g bag for $39.99. Their Liquid Kratom Tincture Extracts range from $14.99 – $29.99.
Like many other Kratom vendors, Royal Kratom uses Slyng to provide coupon codes. Interestingly, they don’t disclose up front how much the discount will be or when it expires. But be sure to try out the coupon code “Slyng” the next time you buy something from this vendor.
As with any headshop brand, Royal Kratom has met with a lot of skepticism from the Mitragyna speciosa community. But is that skepticism warranted? We’ll lay out the evidence and let you decide.
Over on Reddit, one thread states that Royal Kratom’s 10x extracts are “not Kratom.” The original poster of the topic went on to say that it “doesn’t smell like Kratom” and “had no effect.” Another person countered that their Red Bali “was actually decent” until the company “changed vendors and they are terrible now.”
On YouTube, there’s a video entitled “Royal Kratom Brand is Low Quality Kratom.” In the comments, there are two people who refer to Royal Kratom’s products as “garbage.” Another viewer complained that Royal Kratom is “low quality and gave me a headache.”
But there are also a few people defending this vendor on the same YouTube video. One said, “works great for me, tho…my favorite lately.” Another commented that “Royal Maeng Da Gold XL has always been my go to.” “Just tried it…really good product,” said another YouTube user. There were also a couple of people who claimed that the video in question doesn’t actually show a Royal Kratom product.
We don’t know how well Royal Kratom’s customer service responds to issues because there’s just not enough anecdotal evidence out there. To make matters worse, all the website links on the bottom of their homepage, including Contact Us, About Us, and the Returns page, are all currently broken.
On the plus side, the top menu does still work. That allowed us to discover that refunds are offered for the first 10 days, but only due to a manufacturer’s defect or a mistake made by the vendor. That’s a very small window to work with, so you’ll need to report any problems as soon as you get your package.
We wish we had better news to report, but the overall consensus just doesn’t seem to justify Royal Kratom’s pricing. Of course, there are people who have reported enjoying this vendor’s products. Since we’re all different, it’s always best to try something for yourself before you completely write it off. With that being said, we’d encourage those who are going to give Royal Kratom a try to start with a small order.
