We’re used to seeing kratom vendors that sell their stuff for the sake of keeping a small, family-run business alive. But now and again, you’ll find a vendor that takes things up a notch, selling large amounts of product and taking the shape of a full-scale operation. Such is Authentic Kratom.
You would think that with such an obscure name, this brand wouldn’t have much of a presence online, but you’d be surprised. Authentic Kratom has gotten quite a lot of feedback on the web, splitting the consumer base into two major factions. So which side should you take? Find out here.
Several years back, there wasn’t a lot of information about Authentic Kratom. In fact, you might say they were something of a non-entity against the many different kratom vendor juggernauts that were present at the time. So the brand turned to the only marketing ploy they knew to do, which was shilling.
Aged threads on Reddit showcase user profiles with limited information, talking highly about Authentic Kratom. These profiles also went out of their way to downvote any critics that would post negatively about the vendor. The strange activity obviously left a bad taste in the mouths of the tough Reddit crowd. So the vendor had to think of new ways to get their patronage.
They then developed a robust discount program, placing most of their products on discount prices for long periods throughout the year. Discount items were also regularly rotated to give buyers more variety and to keep their inventory constantly moving.
This has since turned the humble Authentic Kratom brand into a major operation. Selling hundreds upon hundreds of kilograms every few days, the brand gets their kicks by selling discount kratom that’s just the right quality. However since they operate on such a large scale, you can expect their customer support to be a little underwhelming.
With the mission of becoming the single most reliable go-to for any and all kratom needs, Authentic Kratom has made it their objective to constantly expand their selection so that buyers can get everything they need under one virtual roof. They have an extensive product line-up filled with various strains you might have never heard of before, including:
Colors for their kratom strains include red, white, green, and the ever elusive yellow. They also carry crushed leaf and kratom extracts as part of their extended inventory. If you’re looking to buy powder, their kratom packs come in weights of 1oz, 5oz, and 10oz. Unfortunately for those looking to get an easy dosage, the brand doesn’t offer their strains in capsule form.
One thing you’ll notice about the Authentic Kratom product line is that they’re advertised as ‘lab tested’. Of course, that might entice the slightly more selective buyers. But it’s equally important to recognize that there are no lab reports available on their website, which leaves the question of whether these products are actually tested or not.
But hey, the brand touts that they’ve collected over 4,000 reviews through their YotPo powered review system. And because they’ve received an average rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars, you might be able to let go of the whole lab report issue.
Now, here’s why they’ve got such a robust discount system. Authentic Kratom’s stuff is crazy expensive. We’re talking $19.99 for a single ounce of product. Their five-ounce packs sell for $99.95, and their 10oz packages retail for an astounding $198.99. During sale season however, Authentic Kratom manages to dial down those prices to $13.99, $69.99, and $139.99 respectively, which still isn’t cheap.
To put things into perspective, well known brands can sell their kilograms for just $70 bucks. That places the Authentic Kratom product at around ten times the price of most other stuff you’ll find on the market. And when you consider the fact that they’ve received their fair share of critical reviews, it becomes harder to muster the desire to spend that much for their product.
But hey, at least they’ve got those routine sales in order. They also scratch out the shipping fees for all of their orders, regardless of how much or how little you’re buying. Purchases that cost $50 or over automatically get free samples tossed in the package. And of course, they’ve got a newsletter in place for those who want to get their hands on Authentic Kratom coupon codes and discount vouchers.
Authentic Kratom has definitely come a long way from its humble beginnings and unsavory shilling tactics. But for as many reviews as they might have amassed over the years, their prices are just too much for even the most dedicated kratom consumers.
Then again, if you’re presently in a try-and-buy frenzy and you just want to be able to say that you’ve tried it all, then there might not be anything wrong about spending a small fortune on the Authentic Kratom line-up.
