One word, AWESOME Company. Not only is their product high quality but so isn’t their customer service, Other company’s need to take lessons from this company, super fast shipping and superior customer service. If you have any doubts about this company regarding quality, customer service, shipping you need not worry A+++ in my books.

Excellent variant for energy, if you need a boost to get some work done – and quite long-lasting. Not as uplifting as Maeng Da but more energizing for me. USPS sent my order to the wrong state somehow, but BuyKratom customer service was right on top of things for me.

Tried this strain this morning. For me, I noticed it is a bit stronger than White Borneo and a slight bit weaker than Maeng Da. I mixed it with Premium Bali and I get great effects from both. This is definitely a strain I will continue to use, for as long as it is offered.

This one was pretty interesting. When I prepared it I noticed a “woody” aroma, which isn’t bad, but it’s not as endearing to me as the aromas of other strains. It reminded me of Red Kali in that it wasn’t the most potent of strains I have received from here, but it is still better than my last vendor. It is still priced competitively for the quality, but I might not use it as a base, but rather for a mix-and-match preparation. Effects are very subtle, but mostly energizing, not much head to it. I may have gotten an early harvest, or an anomaly, it happens.

This variant, which gets its name from the distinctive horns that shape the leaf, comes from deep in the jungles of central Kalimantan region of Borneo. As part of our recent expedition to Indonesia, this is another strain we are very excited about and are offering this promotional pricing. Expected to be a top seller soon. If you are a fan of the more stimulating varieties this is a must try!

Kratom (mitragyna speciosa) has gained popularity in the Western world only in the past decade, but the cultures of Southeast Asia – where kratom trees grow in the wild – have been using this plant for thousands of years.
While Malaysia’s and Thailand’s native cultures have a rich history of kratom use, this is not true for Indonesia, where kratom lacks the tremendous local popularity in modern culture. Although there is evidence that past generations and indigenous Indonesian cultures have used kratom quite extensively.
Native Indonesian cultures long used kratom as a folk remedy for diarrhea, anxiety and pain. It was also used by laborers who enjoyed kratom because it would ease their pain, while also offering a boost of energy and improved mood.
The strains of kratom native to Indonesia have long been used by native cultures who favored the plant for its potent sedative and pain relieving properties. It’s said that Indo kratom has long been favored due to the lower incidence of side effects, particularly when compared to Bali strains, which have been linked to a high incidence of nausea and “the wobbles.”
In Indonesia, kratom grows plentifully in the southern regions of the country. Locally, it is called “Ithang” and “Kakuam.”
Notably, kratom is not illegal in Indonesia. As a result, Indonesian people are free to grow, sell, use and export kratom. In fact, Indonesia has become a top exporter of kratom, largely due to the plant’s illegal status in other areas where it grows naturally, such as Malaysia and Thailand.
In the past few decades, Indonesian kratom – better known as “Indo kratom” – was regarded as being of a lesser quality when compared to kratom leaves that were grown in Thailand or Malaysia. But this differential has been attributed not to the actual Indo kratom strain, but rather, to the lack of local knowledge concerning kratom cultivation.
Up until relatively recently – the past couple decades – Indonesian kratom farmers and harvesters lacked the knowledge required to produce a high quality kratom that is comparable to the quality of leaf that comes out of other Southeast Asian nations, where it has been cultivated for many generations.
In recent years – thanks in large part to the internet and improved education – Indonesian kratom farmers have learned how and when to harvest kratom in a manner that maximizes potency. Most have also mastered other techniques, such as understanding which leaves to harvest and how long to wait until performing the first harvest on a plant.
So today, Indonesia is a top exporter of Indo kratom strains, along with many other varieties of kratom. In fact, Indonesia is home to some of the world’s largest and most productive kratom plantations and the nation’s favorable export laws make it a go-to source for kratom.
