Kratom enthusiasts have been raving about the benefits of kratom and the ease of taking capsules in their daily wellness routine whether at home or on the go. Whether you are buying kratom capsules online, from local vendors, or at health food stores, prioritizing the safety and quality of kratom is essential.
One of the quickly growing herbal supplements in the natural wellness category, kratom is a natural herb also called Mitragyna speciosa. The kratom tree is grown in the wild rainforests of Southeast Asia in countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Thailand. Kratom users report improved well-being, higher energy levels, mental clarity, and relaxation benefits of kratom. While the natives traditionally chewed or boiled the kratom leaves to make kratom tea, kratom supplements are now available in a variety of forms such as kratom capsules, powder, tea bags, gummies, and even liquid kratom extract.
Even though there are various ways to take kratom, kratom capsules are a go-to product for many kratom users due to the convenience and effectiveness. This guide details all you need to know before you buy the highest-quality kratom capsules.
Where to Buy Kratom Capsules Safely and Effectively
To buy safe and effective kratom capsules, you need to keep in mind a few guidelines and the pros and cons each option offers.
Buy Kratom Capsules Online
Online kratom vendors are the way to go if you are looking for convenience. From easily browseable product pages and available information about these kratom vendors, you can get the best deal for your kratom capsules.
Benefits of buying kratom from online vendors:
- Stress-free deliveries and receive your kratom capsules on your doorstep.
- Browse the complete variety of strains and kratom products available in the market.
- Verify if the online kratom vendor is GMP-certified and has third-party lab testing.
- Read customer reviews of other verified buyers to check if the kratom vendor is well-reputed.
Tips for purchasing kratom capsules online:
Do not order your kratom in a state or city where kratom is not legal as no kratom vendors will ship your kratom capsules to that address. Also, make sure that you are ordering from a well-reputed vendor with customer support available for complaints and any issues.
Buy Kratom Capsules at Local Vendors and Stores
Physical stores near you such as kratom shops, health food stores, and specialty smoke shops are great if you are looking to check out the kratom capsules up closer and buy right away.
Benefits of buying kratom capsules locally:
- A personable kratom buying experience with a live display of kratom products and different strains.
- Talk to knowledgeable staff about kratom supplements and the best uses for your needs.
- Ask any questions or concerns about the vendor’s kratom production process and safety protocols including lab testing.
- Check or verify lab test results before buying any kratom product.
Tips for purchasing kratom capsules locally:
Buying your kratom capsules in-store might not get you the best price deal that’s out there. Also, you should make sure the kratom capsules you are buying are labeled adequately with information on supplemental facts and an ingredient list along with the AKA’s GMP-approved seal.
Sourcing Kratom Capsules Directly from Growers
Most of the kratom available in the U.S. is imported from the West Kalimantan region of Indonesia where various kratom growers and suppliers are based. However, buying kratom directly is not as simple or safe as you might think.
Tips for purchasing kratom capsules directly:
Kratom sourced directly from growers is not lab-tested and is 15-20% likely to fail microbial testing. The kratom suppliers also do not have standard growing and harvesting processes and package the kratom poorly with tears and leaks. Without proper lab testing, kratom is potentially unsafe for human consumption. This is why as a consumer, opting for online kratom vendors or local kratom shops is a much more efficient way to buy kratom.
High-Quality Kratom & GMP Standards
The kratom industry has gone through a few rough phases with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the DEA because of a few bad actors. In response, the American Kratom Association initiated the Good Manufacturing Practice Standards Program to protect access to kratom and ensure safe distribution.
Among many other requirements, the program requires the participating kratom vendors to qualify suppliers and document standard operating procedures, as well as implement testing procedures to protect against contaminants.
Every approved kratom vendor is required to successfully demonstrate that their kratom products are safe, high-quality, and adequately labeled for consumers.
Kratom vendors like Super Speciosa that qualify and maintain the high standards of this program are listed as an AKA Qualified Vendor and their products bear the “AKA GMP Qualified” seal on their packaging. See all the GMP-qualified vendors.
When kratom companies are certified by the AKA, kratom users know that the kratom capsules they are buying are pure and safe to consume.
No certification is a big red flag. This means the kratom vendor is likely to be packaging kratom straight from their supplier without any quality checks for contamination. These companies are known as “Garage Vendors” and should be avoided.
Factors to Consider When Buying Kratom Capsules
Quality and Purity of Kratom Capsules
Kratom is a natural product exposed to all kinds of elements and some processors even mill the leaves in open facilities which can increase the risks of contamination. The lack of quality controls on the supply side means that the responsibility for consumer safety is on the kratom vendors who distribute and sell kratom in the US.
If the kratom vendor is not on the list of AKA GMP-certified vendors, it should raise a major red flag for you, and these low-quality “garage vendors” should be avoided.
Vendor Reputation and Customer Reviews
Another essential is to buy kratom from reputable vendors who have been in the market for some time. As new kratom stores pop up every week, not all of them prioritize consumer safety and follow good manufacturing practices. A credible vendor will have an established reputation and customer base.
There are multiple Reddit groups like r/Vendorsofkratom, that share customer experiences with different vendors. You can also check out Kratom Support Facebook groups, like Super Leaf Warriors to help find the right kratom products for you.
It’s always beneficial to check out reviews from real customers on the kratom company and its products. At Super Speciosa, all our product pages have hundreds of customer reviews by our verified kratom buyers that give you authentic anecdotal accounts of our kratom supplements.
Labeling and Vendor Transparency
At Super Speciosa, we are leading the baton of full transparency. From the exact Mitragynine content to the easily scannable QR codes on our packaging, you are in full confidence of what makes the kratom in your hand the best out there. We keep kratom the way nature intended it–unaltered and uncompromised. Learn more about the advantages of choosing Super Speciosa’s lab-tested kratom for the ultimate kratom experience.
Apart from the AKA GMP approval seal, look for this information on the label of kratom products.
- Supplemental facts
- Ingredients list
- Use by date
- Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine levels
- Reference to lab-testing
- Batch number
You should also be asking the kratom vendor about their manufacturing and lab-testing processes until you are satisfied that their products are safe and high-quality. Some essential questions to ask are:
- Was the kratom pasteurized before being tested?
- Was the powder blended after receiving the shipment?
- Is the kratom powder tested in small batches?
- What criteria do you use to determine if the kratom is safe to consume?
Also, avoid any vendors making medical claims for treating opioid withdrawal, pain relief, or chronic pain as kratom is not approved by the FDA for these uses.
Pricing and Quantity of Kratom Capsules
While kratom capsules can be super effective and convenient, they are generally pricier than kratom powder. Buying kratom capsules in bulk is the best way to save money. While Super Speciosa offers up to 1000 capsules in one pack, some kratom users find it cost-effective to buy kratom powder and make their own capsules with a home capsule machine.
Super Speciosa is a premium kratom brand at a non-premium price. Here’s what one of our verified buyers says:
“THE BEST QUALITY AND PRICE YOU’LL FIND! I’ve tried other companies to buy kratom from. Some were okay but since the first time I tried Super Speciosa, I knew it was better quality than the rest. I needed to take fewer tablets because of the strength. Also, it is slightly less expensive than other companies. I highly recommend it and have told others about this company.”
Shipping and Customer Service
Kratom supplements can only be delivered in areas where kratom is legal so make sure your delivery address is not within any such location. All orders placed at Super Sepciosa before 2 pm EST are shipped the same day.

Types of Kratom Products We Offer
Kratom comes in different forms and Super Speciosa offers not just kratom capsules, we offer powder, tablets, gummies, and tea bags but also flavored kratom powder, flavorful tea blends, and gummies for beginners. But at the heart of it all are the variety of strains.
Kratom varieties and strains offer diverse kratom experiences but a kratom store with lots of strains is not a good sign. In fact, the usage of “strain terminology” is a misnomer as no harvester on the supply side is cultivating different strains or colors based on their unique properties.
The strain names are also arbitrarily made up by the vendor. For example, the “Red Thai” strain is not from Thailand. The colors also do not reflect the vein colors of the processed leaves as multiple colored veins are found on the same tree.
At Super Speciosa, we like to rely on the term “variety” instead of “strain. We separate and grade kratom based on batches and alkaloid profiles. Our Maeng Da and Signature Reserve are the strongest in Mitragynine percentage followed by the milder Bali, Green Malay, and White Thai strains.
This provides our customers with more consistency and a clearer understanding of what they are purchasing. For more information, read the truth about kratom strains.
