The Kratora Quality Standard: Why Our Best Online Kratom is More Expensive Than Our Competitors

Share this post: twitterfacebookpinterest Whatsapp

Our customers often ask us what the best kratom is and why our products cost more than those of our competitors. Though the range of strains and ethnobotanicals we offer is fairly similar to other providers, our prices are more expensive than other companies. We think it’s only fair that our customers know what they’re getting when purchasing from Kratora, so we’re dedicating this blog to giving you an inside look at how our products are made and why we believe that we have the best kratom online.

What is the Best Kratom?: All-Natural, Organic Botanicals

The story behind the best kratom online starts in small communities around the world, where our kratom leaves and ethnobotanicals are grown and wildcrafted by locals in their native environments. Here, with the perfect climate and soil conditions, the mitragyna speciosa plants require no pesticides or fertilizers and flourish under the care of well-trained farmers. Once each plant reaches the peak point of maturity, it is harvested and dried using traditional techniques that maintain the most optimal profile of its naturally-occurring active compounds.



Packaged Fresh and Securely Sealed

Harvesting each plant at the right time with the help of local farmers is only the first step in ensuring that we’re selling you the best kratom online. The next step is making sure those plants are packaged securely as soon as they are dry to protect them from exposure to light, air, and moisture, and to prevent any potential contamination. Keeping the harvesting – drying – packaging – shipping process as efficient and streamlined as possible means that we don’t have to add any preservatives or artificial ingredients to our products.

Ultra-Fine Ground

The consistency and texture of the final product is a large part of what the best kratom is known for. At Kratora, we grind our kratom and alternative leaves to an ultra-fine consistency that is comparable to powdered sugar. Having a powder that’s silky soft makes it far more pleasant and easier to use. Sometimes, finding the best kratom online is all in the details!

Third-Party Lab Tested

Customer reviews and our own experience with our products strongly suggest that we have some of the best kratom online; however, we don’t expect you to take our word for it. That’s why we have every batch of our fresh kratom and kratom alternatives tested at an independent third-party laboratory to ensure that they’re safe and 100% pure.

As part of this testing process, we also screen for unwanted contaminants, including:

  1. Biological factors such as the aerobic plate count, yeast, mold, coliforms, E. coli, salmonella, and staphylococcus
  2. Heavy metals like arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury
  3. Chemical adulterants

Our kratom powder is also tested for its mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine contents as a percentage of the leaf’s total alkaloids. This step is crucial for ensuring that your kratom only contains naturally-occurring percentages of each of these alkaloids and hasn’t been adulterated with synthetic substances that could alter your experience when using the plant.

Strengthening Communities in Southeast Asia

Defining what the best kratom is goes beyond the quality of the final product and considers the impact of the process on the producers, their families, and their wider communities. To offer you the best kratom online, we have spent a great deal of time on the islands of Indonesia, building relationships with our farmers and developing kratom-planting projects in riverside communities.

By working with the same producers over several years, we have been able to develop a high level of trust and improve the way we work together over time. Regular trips to Indonesia also mean that we get to see the harvesting and drying processes first hand!

How Our Growers Benefit Directly

To produce our premium kratom and offer a viable palm oil alternative to local communities, new kratom trees are planted in families’ backyards, providing them with a regular income and allowing parents to stay at home rather than going off to work on rubber and palm oil plantations for months at a time. Harvesters and dryers who do not have a history with kratom production are trained in the most effective harvesting and drying techniques to ensure that you get the best kratom online, every time.

Once you know what the best kratom is, you can decide for yourself if it’s worth spending those few dollars more for a fresh, organic, premium product. According to our customers, the unparalleled quality of our ethnobotanicals makes it well worth the price — and if you don’t immediately love one of our products, simply send back the packet (with at least 75% of the original volume remaining) and we’ll cheerfully give you a full refund!
