The kratom community has had to deal with a lot of sketchy stuff over the years, whether we’re talking about the synthetic additives in brands like Krypton Kratom or the snake oil salesmen who have promoted kratom as something that it’s not.
Head shops and tobacconists seem to have a knack for selling kratom products that are adulterated, enhanced, or otherwise tampered with. This leaves discerning consumers in a tough spot.
If you don’t want lousy or dangerous head shop brands, you’ve gotta shop online, but there are literally thousands of kratom sites on the internet. Finding a legit brand can be a real pain. Finding one that’s completely pure is even harder.
If you’ve been searching high and low for a brand that won’t leave you high and dry, you need to discover Straight Up Kratom. Read on for the full skinny on this Wyoming kratom vendor.
Straight Up Kratom, AKA K Solutions, is a Western kratom vendor with facilities in Cheyenne, WY. It is fitting that the company should have its offices in the state capital because Straight Up Kratom should be considered a jewel in Wyoming’s crown.
This low-key brand is all about keeping things safe, simple, and straightforward. Hence, the name Straight Up Kratom. What you see is what you get with this vendor. No bogus assertions. No cheap marketing tactics.
Straight Up Kratom is the kind of vendor many of us dreamed about in the early part of the 2010s, a seller that would stock yellow kratom strains as well as bulk kratom bundles.
Not only is it top search result when you type in “kratom cheyenne wy,” Straight Up Kratom is also a well-reviewed outfit, with one reviewer calling it, “legit leaf, no b.s.”
If you’re visiting this vendor’s home turf, you may want to stop by its offices in the Executive Suites Downtown on Central Avenue. It’s just a stone’s throw from Bejo Sushi and Asian Cuisine, so you can have a nice cup of tea before getting yourself some tasty eats.
Straight Up Kratom’s web site is somewhat spartan, lacking in both third-party lab results or information about its general business practices. We would have liked to see more about day-to-day operations and quality control protocol.
Although the company’s About Us page describes its testing process in broad terms it would be refreshing for such a vendor to post pictures demonstrating how this process works. Some of the best kratom vendors on the market show demo materials to their customers, walking them through the nuts and bolts of manufacturing.
On the bright side, Straight Up Kratom has proven to be one of the safest, cleanest brands of the year. It sells 100% organic kratom that is free from additives, pesticides, or any form of contamination.
This vendor currently stocks ten unique kratom strains, including Private Reserve Kratom. Private Reserve is generally made in small quantities by blending a popular top-shelf strain with a similarly concentrated variant.
In Straight Up Kratom’s case, the Private Reserve Kratom collection consists of the Private House Blend, Old Forest Kratom, Crushed Leaf Green Maeng Da, and more. Private Reserve strains start at $35 for two hundred fifty grams.
Our pick for Straight Up Kratom Best Strain is Old Forest Green Dampar. This green vein is a hybrid of Red Dampar and White Dampar, a kratom cultivar harvested in East Kalimantan.
Dampar is known for its calm waves and sandy beaches, which may sound like an odd fit for kratom trees, but when you consider the tropical climate Dampar Kratom’s proximity to the beach makes sense.
Green Dampar is permitted to reach optimal maturity prior to harvest, which gives the tree a chance to absorb the distinct minerals of the region’s soil. This is believed to influence the alkaloid and flavonoid content of the plant matter.
Green Vein Dampar is redolent of blooming honeysuckle, plumeria, and sandalwood, with a nutty finish that will remind many users of arabica beans. It is an irresistible fragrance and one that lingers for some time.
There are other terrific strains, such as Red MD, White MD, Super Green, Old Forest Gold Hulu Kapuas, Old Forest Red Bali, and Old Forest White Elephant. In our experience, none hold a candle to Old Forest Green Dampar.
Additionally, SUK’s online store carries Enhanced White MD; MIT 45 Orange Powder, AKA Candid Orange; MIT45 Kratom Extract Tablets, MIT 45 Black Diamond Extract; and Pure Synergy Premium Gold Maeng Da Extract 12ml Kratom Tincture.
Prices for these enhanced items vary from product to product, although most start somewhere between $14.99 and $30.00.
Kratom samples are available for the uninitiated, with one hundred grams going for $26.99. Powder samples generally go for $32, while capsule samplers go for $36.99.
Speaking of kratom capsules, Straight Up Kratom offers four strains in bulk capsule form. Encapsulated kratom is the preferred method for many working pros and athletes.
Kratom capsules are easier to swallow and easier to tolerate than raw powder. Many find it convenient to store kratom caps while visiting a gym or attending a work function.
Straight Up Kratom Capsules start at $29.99 for a 120-count of six hundred milligram caps. You can also get a 120-count of jumbo 00 size caps for $34.99.
Bulk kratom pricing is available on four-kilo bundles, which give you your pick of any four strains you want for the low, low price of $378.00. That’s four thousand grams for less than $400!
Most online vendors charge a minimum of $100-120 per kilo, with many charging even more. For example, Mitragaia charges $120, while Happy Hippo charges $290.00.
Alas, payment options are limited to bank transfer, eCheck, or Zelle. Credit cards do not appear to be accepted and there are no options for Apple Pay, Bitcoin, Google, PayPal, or Venmo.
On a more positive note, If you can get free bonus kratom powders when you pay with Zelle. This is one of the company’s many perks.
Straight Up Kratom is always generous with its giveaways, including promotional codes. For example, this vendor’s Father’s Day special saved customers twenty percent off their totals with the discount code ‘DAD25.’
You can follow Straight Up Kratom on social media or call its customer service line to sign up for special offers and kratom coupon codes.
Straight Up Kratom ships all of its orders via USPS (United States Postal Service), with Priority Mail provided on most purchases. Orders ship within twenty-four hours of being processed.
If you’re willing to upgrade, you’ll have a choice between Priority Mail and Express Mail. Given recent post office delays, it is advisable to pay extra for expedited postage.
Shipping may be slower during the holidays, but most orders receive next day shipping. If you’re ordering a bulk bundle, you may be eligible for an upgrade to UPS Ground.
Customers typically have a seven-day window to request a return. Unfortunately, returns are not accepted during the ongoing global health crisis.
For whatever reason, this brand has become particularly popular among athletes and gym rats. A member on the Anabolex forums wrote, “The Super Green powder from Straight Up has become one of my favorite kratom strains to use. It’s a very universal day or nighttime [one].”
Over at the Anabolic Minds forums, another member wrote at length about his experience with this vendor, noting the aroma of each individual strain, thanking Staight Up Kratom for including a bonus strain they had not ordered, and concluding their review by giving this vendor an 8.5/10 rating.
