The leaves of all Mitragynine species contain a variety of indole compounds some of common in closely related taxa in the Rubiacae family and others unique to kratom.
Of the compounds found only in kratom, at least two (mitragynine and 7-hydroxy-mitragynine) have been of particular importance to researchers. It is also theses compounds that give burning kratom its distinct aroma when burned as incense. Smoldering kratom smells almost exactly like smoldering Sage Brush from the high deserts of Idaho and Utah - making it an excellent substitute for the latter. As Sage grows so slowly and burns so quickly - it is ill suited for industrial use - it's simply bad for the environment. In fact. Several sage are protected species in some states and export is forbidden. Kratom however, is abundant and has excellent slow burning properties making it well suited for incense preparations. The many different varieties of kratom that we offer each have their own unique scent as well - giving you an abundant choice for earth-friendly Sage incense!
Like many other natural botanicals however, the subjective, mood brightening effects caused by burning kratom (and Sage) are probably due to the activities of many different compounds, the relative proportions of which determine the qualitative character of a particular strain. Thus the exact chemical basis of kratom's unique aroma are murkier than it might seem and isolated alkaloid extracts have been shown to be less effective than the raw plant - the simply don't have the same aromatic qualities! For this reason, we believe that basically all kratom extracts fall short of the magical essence of plain, unaltered kratom leaf.
The characteristics of kratom leaves vary depending on age and growing conditions such as moisture and temperature. Seasonal variations are commonly observed in non equatorial locations. Genetics plays a part as well since distinct "micro populations" of kratom can differ quite dramatically from other nearby populations with major differences in appearance as well as aroma. Because of this, there is simply an amazing abundance of distinct varieties and strains with their own unique aromatic characteristics.
In it's native South East Asia, Kratom use is widespread in Southern Thailand and is rooted in traditions that date back beyond antiquity. It is also used in other neighboring countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia as well where local traditions are as interesting and diverse as the kratom plant itself.
Throughout Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand today, fresh kratom leaves are chewed by manual laborers in order to increase endurance and motivation. Interestingly enough, though use of the plain leaf is widely tolerated, extracts and concentrates which are often crudely made with toxic ingredients are considered harmful especially in Thailand. Many people in the East also use it as an incense material to ward off malevolent energy in their homes and workplaces - much like how sage is used in North America. After all, their evil probably hates the aroma of burning kratom as much as our restless spirits hate sage.
Our kratom is absolutely NOT a "Natural Health Product", nor should it be considered a quick way to get a "buzz". Please be respectful and considerate of those regular kratom burners since what you do has a major impact on the rights of the many other individuals who truly value our products to cleanse themselves of malevolent energies and to maintain their spiritual balance.
Free Xpresspost upgrade for orders 300g and up!
Due to the various holidays in virtually every province and territory (Family Day e,g.) We will be closed for shipping until Canada Post is fully operational again on Tuesday the 4th. Based on past exeperiences, shipments, if dispatched Monday are unusually likely to be delayed or lost because Canada Post will be for the most part, closed, but open enough to lose your mail…
All operations will resume as usual on Tuesday the 4th and shipping this Friday will be unaffected so make sure you get your order in as soon as possible. All orders received before 3PM on Friday will be shipped as usual, after 3PM friday, orders received during the weekend and early on Monday will be dispatched Tuesday. Orders received late on Monday or before cutoff on Tuesday will be unaffected and be shipped alongside the holiday backlog.
ALL NEW BATCHES ARRIVING OR ALREADY HERE
Almost all strains are transitioning to brand new batches - dates in the product section will be updated as soon as possible - when the second shipment arrives via freight before the end of the week so all strains with new batches will be updated together!

We will be closed for Quebec’s customary National Holiday, a legal statutory holiday in our province. Businesses, Services and any governmental entities, (Provincial/‘National’ AND Federal) such as Canada Post and every single private Courier service will be closed in observance of this special celebration in accordance to provincial bylaw.
It is a one-day affair and all services will resume normally and fully on Thursday, June 24th. All orders received after 3PM today will ship then, Thursday orders will ship normally. Please be aware of the unavoidable 24hr delay. There is unfortunately no emergency options available but Montrealers can contact us for possible pickup arrangements depending the actual circumstances and our availabilities.
You can learn more about this holiday historically rooted in Catholic Tradition, it’s evolution over time as well as it’s special importance to the people of Quebec on Wikipedia. If you do not already know, This holiday always falls a week or two before Canada Day and since it’s less known outside la belle province, be sure to mark your schedules if you are a regular customer so as to not be surprised.
CHANGED SHIPPING NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE
We’ve recently streamlined our shipping process so your tracking emails will be arriving at a different time than you’re used to.
You used to receive a notification when the shipment was created, often early in the morning.
Now the tracking numbers are being released when the post office actually receives the packages from us. This happens between 15:00-17:00 EST.
Rest assured that the packages themselves are being shipped according to our usual standards (anything before 15:00 EST is shipped same-day), it’s just that the tracking numbers are going out concurrently with the packages instead of preceding them as they did in the past.
WHITE KALIMANTAN BACK IN STOCK - ALL NEW BATCHES
At long last, White Kalimantan is officially back in stock - our inventory has been completely replenished with all new fresh stocks of almost all of our products. Check out our store to order the freshest kratom available!
RED MALAY AND WHITE HORN OFFICIALLY AVAILABLE
Madam Kratom is proud to officially add these highly anticipated strains as full-fledged members of our permanent catalogue. High resolution photos and detailed strain descriptions have been added to our store and all variety packs have been revised to reflect the additions. Quantities are limited so claim yours now! Sliding banners for the home pages coming soon!
RED MALAY AND WHITE HORN AVAILABLE IN VARIETY PACKS
Our newest products - Super Red Malaysian and White Horned Kratom are now officially available in our store via any of the variety packs including all 4 custom variety packs where they can now be selected normally. Pictures and descriptions for the individual strains are scheduled to be online tonight after 9PM Eastern Standard Time to avoid further service interruptions due to necessary site maintenance operations.
PRE-MADE VARIETY PACKS CHANGED TO REFLECT PRODUCT AVAILABILITIES
Due to the new availability of our exciting new products, Super Red Malaysian and White Horned Kratom, as well as the temporary White Kalimantan backorder, relevant pre-selected variety packs have been altered to reflect our current inventory status. Custom Variety Packs are unaltered except for the addition of Red Malay and White Horn and the very temporary removal of White Kalimantan pending restocking. Please contact us if you notice any problems, errors or bugs.
RED MALAY AND WHITE HORN AVAILABLE IN STORE SHORTLY.
Our site is currently undergoing maintenance as we add the Red Malay and White Horn products into the store.
WHITE KALIMANTAN ON BACKORDER
The White Kalimantan is backordered - estimated time for a new shipment in unavailable right now but should be within 2 weeks. In the meantime, try any of our Malay or Horned Strains (including Maeng Da) if you prefer a more energizing aroma. If you have already ordered the white before it was removed, you are entitled to a substitution for any other strain if including ones that are more expensive.
WHITE KALIMANTAN, GOLDEN KALIMANTAN AND ENERGY BLEND POSSIBLE 3-4 DAY BACKORDER
Due to the inclement weather across Canada, the increased holiday shipping volume and an unexpected deluge of orders for these strains, we are short stocked while our scheduled shipment (arriving on ground transport) is delayed by snow until after the weekend. We still have some inventory which means orders may still go out as usual but there is a chance that we will run out before the weekend and orders containing the aforementioned strains will be delayed. When filling out the order form, please indicate if you would like your order shipped now, without the affected products (to be shipped separately later) or if you would prefer to wait a few days and have everything sent together. Orders containing only the delayed product(s) may be prioritized ahead of orders that also include well-stocked strains.
RED MALAY AND WHITE HORN AVAILABLE NOW - IN STORE OFFICIALLY WITHIN 24hrs
Though we have not had the occasion to formally update the site with the two new strains, they are stocked up and available for purchase now. They will be in the store officially by tomorrow but until then, if you want either product, just order a similarly priced product (white horn = any “horned” product including MD and Red Malay = Green Malay) and indicate (in the comments section of the order form) the substitutions. This is only temporary until the new additions are online, but given the unusually enthusiastic response from customers who have already been purchasing these products over the last month and the remarkable results of our quality assessment program, we just want to let you know your options before they officially “hit the shelves”.
In light of the backorder situation for the other strains, you won’t be disappointed giving these two unique and rare varieties a try.
OUR HOLIDAY SCHEDULE FOR THE 2014-2015 SEASON COMING ONLINE IN 24 HOURS
Our schedule of closures, which will basically be based on the shipping companies will be finalized and posted later today. Be sure to check it and order in advance if you must to avoid any surprised (and potentially very long) delays.
RED MALAY AND WHITE HORN AVAILABLE NEXT WEEK
Madam Kratom is excited to announce that we have received stocks of “Red Malay” and “White Horn” varieties. Both have previously been RIGOROUSLY quality tested - passing with flying colors. Look for these exciting, Madam Kratom exclusive products in our store sometime next week.
NO SHIPPING HALLOWEEN FRIDAY
Due to staff observances among our dedicated team, we have chosen to take this day off - shipments received after 3PM Thursday afternoon will be shipped the following Monday when operations return to normal. Please let us know if you have any extenuating circumstance and we’ll see what we can do for you.
GREEN HORN BACK IN STOCK, FRESH NEW BATCHES OF MOST STRAINS
We have received and processed a new inventory shipment and all backordered products, including the Green Horn, are now back in stock. Additionally, a new, fresh batch of most of our products are now available as well and the quality is fantastic. All available for purchase from our store. Shipping has resumed as usual and all orders received until 3PM Tuesday, Sept. 16 will ship the same day.
NO SHIPPING MONDAY, SEPT 15, 2014
In order to improve the quality and efficiency of our order fulfillment and customer service, we will be closed to the public on Monday, Sept, 15, 2014 for internal organizational upgrades including preparations for our migration to a new and improved e-commerce platform. We may also have to organize and process new inventory. Shipping will resume on Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014 for all orders placed after 3PM on Friday Sept. 12, 2014. Certain products (eg. Maeng Da) may be backordered until Wed. Please contact us if you have an extenuating circumstance that is time sensitive and require your shipment to go out Monday or of you have any questions in general. While we are not shipping, we will be open for inquires or questions. Meanwhile, check out our store!
GREEN HORN TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK
We are temporarily out of Green Horn and awaiting a new shipment that will hopefully arrive soon enough. Meanwhile, check out the very similar Red Horn or Maeng Da products in our Store.
RED HORN FINALLY AVAILABLE IN STOCK
After a bit of an unexpected delay, the Red Horn is now available for purchase in somewhat limited quantities! Check out our products page for more information about this incredible new strain!
RED HORN COMING LATER TODAY
We have completed our quality analysis for our new, and very interesting Red Horned variety - a rare "horned" cousin of Maeng Da with some slight aromatic variation, it's an excellent addition to our product catalogue and really complements the very popular Green Horn strain, sharing many of the latter's best qualities yet with a distinctive aroma to explore. Based on customer response to the related Green Horn and the every popular (but geographically separated) Maeng Da, we believe this new and rare variation will quickly become one of your favorite products. Check out our store tonight or early tomorrow and it should be available for purchase! If you are interested in trying some before it's officially added to our catalogue, just order the Green Horn and ask for the substitution - feel free to ask for a sample with any other order as well. We're sure you'll be most pleased with this incredibly formidable addition to our collection! News banner will update when the store has been completely updated. Weird but minor website malfunctions may occur during the update. 30 seconds and the refresh button will probably solve any unusual issues.Site security and encryption will not be affected at any time.
CLOSED FOR MONDAY
Due to the statutory civic holidays in every province
(except Quebec) this Monday, August 4th, 2014, we will be closed since Canada Post (and other carriers) will not be operational in 12 of 13 provinces/territories (and only partially working in Quebec). All shipments that would normally have gone out Monday will ship Tuesday August 5th, as usual, when the carriers resume normal operations.
SCHEDULED SERVER MAINTENANCE SAT. MAY 03
We will be experiencing a brief site outage while the operating kernel is being updated on our main server between the hours of 10PM - 6AM EST. Somewhere during this time, both our site and our main order processing email will be offline for 15-30 minutes. This maintenance will enhance the stability, performance and security of our site. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. For questions, please contact us.
GREEN HORN NOW AVAILABLE!
After almost a year of virtually unanimous positive reviews from test customers and passing our in-house quality checks with flying colors, we've finally acquired an inventory amount of the highly anticipated, incomparable and truly unique Green Horn (A rare Maeng Da variant). For the first time, it has officially been added to our product lineup and is now available in our store. All relevant variety packs have been updated to include our favorite new strain!
RED AND WHITE KALIMANTANS NOW AVAILABLE FOR ORDERING - FRESH BATCHES OF ALL STRAINS
Our classic Red Kalimantan and White Kalimantan Kratom strains are now available to order in our store again. All variety packs have been updated accordingly.
We have also just received fresh new batches of everything over the last two days so order now for the freshest kratom!
The new Green Horn will be in store and available to order tonight!
JUST KIDDING! NO GREEN MALAY DELAY - WE ARE FULLY STOCKED!
All green Malay orders placed yesterday onwards will ship on time. We received a stock shipment just in time so there is no shortage whatsoever. Please ignore the last news update.
GREEN MALAY 1 DAY DELAY
There has been a 1 day delay in our new Green Malay shipment. It is still available for order but be advised that shipment of your order may be delayed a day or your order may be shipped without Green Malay on time and the Green Malay shipped out separately the next day.
GREEN HORN HAS ARRIVED; AVAILABLE SOON. RED, WHITE KALI EN-ROUTE
The all new Green Horn variety has landed in our facility and is currently undergoing quality testing.
A cousin of Maeng Da recently discovered in Malaysia and Indonesia - it is characterized by its "horned" leaves much like Maeng Da but with greener veins unlike the more reddish veins typical of traditional Maeng Da. It is also much lighter in color than its classic Thai cousin, though geographic and seasonal variations also affect the coloration of kratom leaf epidermal tissue (which is why "Red, White or Green" refers to the appearance of the veins rather than the inter-veinal epidermis; eg. Borneo Red Vein not Borneo Red Leaf).
Initial impressions of it's aromatic qualities are quite similar to Maeng Da but a bit more "mellow" and "full bodied" - like a Green Kali. Sort of like a more relaxing Maeng Da with its traditional "spiciness" combined with the glowing, relaxing qualities of many Kalimantan or Borneo strains. We think it'll be a hit! Especially among those looking for a mellower variety with that unmistakable zesty aroma of Maeng Da. Expect to see it in our store within 24-72 hours.
Meanwhile, new shipments of Red and White Kalimatans are scheduled to land in Montreal today so they will hopefully be available for purchase tomorrow. Never know with the post sometimes but we are crossing our fingers.
WHITE KALIMANTAN BACKORDERED:
We are currently out of stock on the White Kalimantan - more is en-route and if all goes well, should be back in stock this week. The Energy Blend which includes White Kalimantan is still available for now but if the White Kali is late, we will change the formula with Green Malay or Maeng Da instead.
EASTER WEEKEND CLOSURES
There will be no shipping from Good Friday (April 18th) to Easter Monday (April 21st) due to Canada Post statutory holidays. All orders received after 3PM on Thursday, April 17th will ship on Tuesday, April 22nd.
GREEN KALIMANTAN BACK IN STOCK
One of our favorite relaxing varieties, a fresh batch of Green Kalimantan is now available for order in our store.
SUPER GREEN MALAYSIAN NOW AVAILABLE FOR SALE

SUPER GREEN MALAYSIAN HAS ARRIVED
We have received an inventory shipment of Super Green Malaysian and are now quality testing it. So far looking good. It will be available for order on our products page sometime between Saturday afternoon and Monday morning.

The recently backordered Red Kalimantan will be available in hopefully less than 48 hours.
ALL NEW INVENTORY FOR FEBRUARY
Get your freshest kratom right here!
Please note that Canada Post will be closed Tuesday - Thursday (Dec 24-26) of this week and thus we will not be shipping then. Shipments will resume when the Post opens after Boxing Day. Shipping is also closed for New Years Day. In addition, the Canada Post is absolutely swamped this time of year, so please expect delays. There's not much we can do about this - except cross our fingers and hope that all courier operations return to normal as soon as possible after the New Year!
NO SHIPPING FRIDAY NOV 1, 2013
We will be closed this Friday. All orders received after 3PM Thursday will be shipped on Monday morning.
ALL NEW STOCKS!
We've just received newly harvested shipmenÍts of all of our strains. Get your kratom while it's fresh for the most potent, balanced and incomparable aromas. Golden Kalimantan coming Monday or Tuesday.
MAENG DA BACK IN STOCK!
We've finally been able to sort out our new stocks of Maeng Da so it is back in stock for purchase. We will also be putting up Green Horned and Green Malay strains soon.
NEW, EASY CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS
We now accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover - simply choose that option at checkout and voila! For your safety, we will not be keeping any credit card information so you'll have to enter your card anew every time you order.
NOW ACCEPTING INTERNATIONAL ORDERS!
We are now taking orders from abroad - including the US. Keep in mind that it is up to you to research the regulations governing Kratom in your home jurisdiction. We will not be taking orders from Australia, Indiana, or Tennessee.
SSL TEMPORARY HOMEPAGE
We're working on some BIG, exciting changes to Madam Kratom soon and have relocated this site to a temporary secure domain at https://www.mkincense.com
Almost all of our strains have arrived in stock quantities so they are now available for purchase from our store. The only exception is the Maeng Da which is still in transit along with new Green Malay and Green Horn varieties. Those should be here next week if the customs process goes smoothly *fingers crossed*. Feel free to contact us about the stock status in case they are here but the site is not updated yet.
NEW RED KALIMANTAN
We're proud to introduce a new variant of the perennially popular Super Borneo Red Vein - this sub-strain is somewhat more relaxing than the old classic and is also extremely aromatic. If you like our Super Borneo Red or Bali, then you'll almost certainly love this one too - we certainly do! Even if you don't think you're into the more relaxing varieties, we recommend that you give this strain a go - you might just be surprised.
GREEN MALAY AND GREEN HORN COMING SOON
Currently en route to us via air (along with the Maeng Da), are two new strains that we are planning to introduce next week. Many customers have expressed interest about the Green Malay in the past so we're adding it our catalogue. The Green Horn is quite similar to the Maeng Da (both are "horned" varieties) but its somewhat more mellow aroma holds its own and offers a worthy alternative. Both of these products are more energizing varieties that perfectly balance our new Red Kalimantan. Since both will be in quality testing when they arrive, they may not be immediately available for purchase; if you're particularly interested in ordering some ASAP, contact us next week to see if they're already in stock.
Happy Canada Day
Just a reminder that we will not be shipping this Canada Day weekend from Friday (June 28) to Monday (July 1). Shipping will resume on Tuesday July 2nd.
We just received a brand new shipment of Borneo Red Vein. Other strains are on their way and will be here sometime next week. In the meantime, feel free to place an order for the new BRV it's a fine (powdery) grind with exellent potency and aroma quality.
OUT OF STOCK!
Several shipments we are waiting for are taking quite a bit longer than expected and we have run out stock. Please check back again in a week or two - we should have received at least one of the shipments by then. We do apologize for the inconvenience. If you'd like to be contacted via e-mail when we are in stock again, please click here to send a message.
STOCKS VERY LOW PENDING NEW SHIPMENT
Because of the recent kratom export difficulties in Indonesia, our stocks are very low right now and the Golden, White and Borneo strains are not currently available. We are expecting a few shipments right now but they are still in customs. Hopefully, many of our stocks will be replenished in a week or two.
NOW ACCEPTING CASH ON DELIVERY
for orders of 300g or more along with free Xpresspost. We will have our credit card processor up soon but in the mean time, we are going to give you the option of paying for your order when it arrives. If you'd like to select Cash on Delivery as your payment method, just indicate so on your order form.
INTERAC e-transfers only (temporary)
We are currently accepting only INTERAC e-transfers right now. INTERAC We will hopefully have our credit card processor online in a few weeks. For more information about how to send an e-transfer as well as what Interac e-transfers are, click here.
Holiday Shipping Schedule Posted
For the next few weeks, due to post office closures and holiday related staff shortages, our usual daily shipping schedule will be interrupted. Please consult the holiday schedule to plan your kratom orders accordingly so that there will be no surprises.
New Shipments, Maeng Da, Green and White
Our regular Green and White Kalimantans are back as is the Maeng Da. Order some here.
Maeng Da out of Stock
Due to higher than antcipated demand,we are temporarily out of Maeng Da. It will probably be back in stock on Thursday or Friday of this week.
Bali out of stock
We are entirely out of Bali. Other strains are running low as well. We're scheduled to receive a shipment of Borneo Red and White Kalimantan on Monday.
No Shipping November 22, 2012
Due to staff shortages because of American Thanksgiving, we will not be shipping any orders on Thursday, November 22, 2012. Orders received on Nov 22 will ship Friday, Nov 23. Orders received the evening of Nov 21st after the 3PM cutoff will ship that night.
White, Bali Stocks Low
Our stocks of White Kalimantan and Bali are extremely low and in order to serve as many customers as possible, the 300g bulk options for both these strains have been temporarily disabled. You can however, still buy them as part of a 300g (or larger) variety pack at the discounted bulk price. There is a 100g limit on both strains per variety pack - you can order 100g of each this way. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The Indonesian Agriculture office has temporarily stopped issuing export certificates for kratom due to some suppliers selling extracts and resins (among other things) which is technically unlawful. As a result of this, we have been unable to receive kratom shipments over the last few week. However, it seems that the kratom suppliers have reached some sort of an agreement with the authorities and shipments will resume soon. In the meantime, please help us in supporting them by not purchasing any extracts or resins from Indonesia
Same day shipping cutoff moved to noon EST from Oct 11 to Oct 24.
For logistical reasons, the cutoff for same-day shipping will be 12PM (noon) for the next two weeks. Please contact us if you require special consideration.
Purolator unavailable until 10/25/2012
We will not be offering Purolator as a shipment option for the next two weeks. Next-day upgraded shipping is still available via Canada Post Priority. For special circumstances please contact us. We apologize for any inconvenience.
New Stocks of Golden Kali
We have received a new shipment of Golden Kalimantan. It is fully back in stock. Order some here.
Regular Hours Resume
Back from vacation! Same-day shipping cutoff is now 3PM EST again - as usual.
Reduced vacation hours
During the week of August 19th to August 24th only orders received before 9AM EST will be shipped the same day. The cutoff will return to the normal 3PM on Monday, August 27th.
We're on Vacation!
Justin and Zhiyuan are taking a last minute vacation this week from August 17 to August 24. Sasha will be here to ship orders as usual but expect delayed responses to e-mail inquiries. If there are any days that we will not be shipping, there will be another post here.
Temporary VISA and Mastercard solution implemented
As a stop gap until we have new credit card processor online, we will be able to accept credit card payments through the direct order system. Simply indicate VISA, MasterCard or "the big P" when you check out and we'll send you an invoice for your order (within the hour) which must be paid before your order will be shipped.
We still prefer Interac e-transfer and will be including bonuses for those who use it!
No more PayPal after August 13, 2012
PayPal will no longer be available starting 08/14/2012.
We are currently in the process of implementing a new (and hopefully improved) method for processing Credit and Debit payments which should be up sometime later in the week. Until then, we will only be accepting Interac e-transfers (and of course the usual alternatives such as money orders). We apologize for the inconvenience
We have streamlined this process to make it as easy as possible and you will be able to checkout from your shopping cart as usual. After checkout, you should send an Interac e-transfer to email@example.com as orders will ship after the Interac transfer is received.
The transfer is instant and virtually every person with a Canadian bank account should be able to do this from his or her online banking website. If you have no idea how, please contact us and we can give you more specific directions. Because some banks charge 1 or 2 dollars for the transfer, we will be including free bonus kratom with every Interac order.
Though we should have another payment processor up and running very soon, we can't give a definite time estimate so if you're on a regular ordering schedule, it would be helpful to become familiar with how to send an e-transfer if you do not already know. The process is surprisingly easy (no account numbers or personal information needed) and very secure.
Once an alternative payment processor is online, we will continue to offer free bonus kratom for Interac orders.
Once again, we encourage you to contact us if you have any questions at all.
Reduced Shipping Hours Friday, 27th
We apologize for the inconvenience but this friday only: orders will ship on Monday unless received before 12PM EST.
Shipping Resumes After Canada Day
The Canada Day postal holiday is over and shipping resumes today. All orders received during the long weekend as well as until 3PM EST today will ship this afternoon.

The highly anticipated White Kalimantan has arrived! If you're looking for a very uplifting kratom strain, this is it! We are also offering a special energy blend with White Kalimantan for a more balanced uplifting experience. Check them out here!
New Variety Pack Options
Because of the introduction of our new White Kalimantan as well as the seasonal discontinuation of both Sumatra varieties, we have altered our pre-selected variety pack options. We think you'll like the changes. There is also the new addition of custom 400 and 600g variety packs along with the classic 300 and 500g options. Order one today!
New Outdoor Golden Kalimantan
Our latest batch of Golden Kalimantan Kratom has finally arrived after unexpected customs delays and we'd say it was well worth the wait. Order some from our products page and find out why this strain is our regular Staff Pick! Feel free to request a sample if you've recently ordered the indoor (earthy tasting) variety and have never tried the usual outdoor type before.
New Batch "C" Bali
We are now shipping a new batch of the Bali (Batch "C"). Compared to the previous Batch "B", we find it to be noticeably more potent - very similar to the Super Borneo Red Vein - a krattastic value! Order some today and see why the new Bali Kratom is our new STAFF PICK! (at least until the return of outdoor Golden Kalimantan)…
Normal Golden Kali Out of Stock
Due to unpredicted customs delays, the normal outdoor cured Golden Kalimantan is currently out of stock. Instead, we will be shipping the previous "Indoor" cured stock which is darker in color and earthier in flavor but has a similar (though not identical) aroma. The normal stock will be back very soon and if you've never ordered it before and choose the indoor stuff instead, feel free to request a sample of a more representative batch when it arrives.
Sumatra White Out of Stock
The Sumatra White Vein is currently out of stock and will be either restocked or replaced altogether with an all new White Kalimantan. If you're sad to see this strain go for whatever reason, let us know.
New Batch Borneo Red Vein
We are now shipping a new batch of the Borneo Red Vein (Batch B). It is somewhat darker in color and more finely ground with familiar relaxing effects. We like it a lot. Be sure to try it out! NOTE: 25g orders may ship with previous stock unless you specify otherwise.
Holiday Related Delays
As you may have expected, there will be some shipping delays for kratom orders received during the next 2 weeks due primarily to post office closures and other random necessities. Please consult our Holiday Schedule so that you are not caught off guard. Happy Holidays!

We have just received a new stock of Golden Kalimantan that is much more representative of the strain than the last batch (which had to be cured indoors due to monsoons). This batch is the usual golden tan color and has no "earthy" flavor. As always, the aroma is terrific and this product is, once again, our STAFF PICK! You can purchase some from our products page.
If you've ordered some from the last -indoor- batch (11/06-11/16) and have never tried our usual Golden Kalimantan before, feel free to request a sample.
New Homepage Kratom Description:
The front page "blurb" about kratom (Left panel) has been upgraded to an article. This is a work in progress so there will be more information added. Citations to sources are currently in the making and will be added soon. If you have any suggestions, be sure to let us know.
New Golden Kalimantan Batch
Because of the inclement weather in Borneo, this batch was cured indoors, has a darker color and "earthy" flavor. The "aroma" is the exactly the same as the typical stuff however. A shipment of the more typical variety will be arriving next week. If you've ordered the current Golden Kali and are curious, be sure to request a sample when the next shipment arrives. Order some from our products page.
Classic Indo Discontinued
In order to make room for newer, more exciting kratom strains, we have decided to discontinue the Classic Indo for now. We will likely be replacing it with another Indo-type strain in the near future.
New Bali Batch
A new batch of Bali has arrived! We'd say it's quite nice! Almost exactly the same as the old stuff but fresher. If you've ordered this product after Oct 25, 2011, let us know what you think.
New! Green Kalimantan
We've just received a new shipment of beautiful green Kratom from the Kalimantan forests. More relaxing than the Golden Kalimantan though distinctly different from the Borneo Red. Check out it out!
All Strains Back in Stock
We have just received an "emergency" shipment of Super Borneo Red, Super Sumatra White and Super Sumatra Red while we await customs clearance of our first shipment.

Super Borneo and Sumatra Strains Temporarily out of stock
Our latest shipment has been sent for "analysis" by Customs and will be released soon. Meanwhile, we have another shipment coming our way from Indonesia that should be arriving sometime this week so expect the products to be available again by Friday. Meanwhile, Borneo Red and Sumatra White fans should check out the new Golden Kalimantan!
Coming Soon: Green Kalimantan!
We are awaiting a shipment of this new strain which should be arriving in the next couple of weeks. We've heard many good things about it from customers who have received samples in the past and we are excited to offer it soon as a full-fledged product in our store.
We only stock kratom that is legally harvested and exported from Indonesia (including Borneo Island) with proper agricultural quarantine certification. There is a dazzling array of different Kratom varieties across the Indonesian archipelago which easily rivals that of Thailand in aroma and diversity. While many vendors sell kratom that is grown and harvested from Indonesia as "Thai" or "Malaysian", we disagree with this misleading practice and stand by the exceptional quality of our Indonesian leaves.
Our commitment to quality starts at the source. All of our kratom is imported with full documentation and bears official phytosanitary certification after being inspected for pathogens, agricultural pests and harmful chemicals. By working closely with the producers themselves, we are able to monitor each step of the production process, ensuring consistent, uncompromising quality while offering the best prices possible to our customers.
