Major Kratom Review 2020: Pro’s & Con’s

What is Major Kratom

Getting high-quality Kratom is one of the most evasive things in the Kratom industry. Most of the vendors in the market have no clue when it comes to quality assurance. They will package any powder, brand it as Kratom, and sale it to you at any price. It’s only after spending a couple of dollars that you’ll begin to realize that the strains are super weak or they don’t work at all. On the other hand, we have a couple of suppliers who want to appear like they are selling the most potent strains, but then their approach is to add some other compounds into the powder. Since the industry remains mostly uncontrolled, such suppliers usually go unpunished, yet they expose the buyers to serious health hazards.

As you can see, the Kratom industry is very tricky to deal with. Even with the right quality, several other factors, such as turnaround time and pricing, can also influence the kind of experience you will have.

Major Kratom claims to have it all figured out. In fact, the founders of the company explain that they started their own practice because the existing Kratom stores “lacked the polish” that users expect. They are correct about the last part. A majority of the online Kratom suppliers either have poor quality strains or terrible business practices and policies. But, is Major Kratom really any different, or are they merely pointing out something that they are a part of?

About Major Kratom

Major Kratom began its operations back in 2010. That’s almost a decade now, so you have to give them the props for that because not every Kratom vendor can survive for that long. Many companies came and fell within the period, and that by itself means that Major Kratom deserves your attention.

On top of that, barely a year since their inception, they were nominated by the Kratom Connoisseurs for Best Kratom Vendor. Based on that alone, you can tell that Major Kratom was on the right track back then. Can we say the same thing today? Remember that the Kratom market is not the same way it was a decade ago. Legal restrictions and evolving customer needs are all factors that companies have to adjust with as time passes.

Major Kratom Website

The Major Kratom website interface falls short by today’s standards. It is not terrible, but it can definitely do with some refinement. For instance, they could bring the vein color product categorization under the Shop segment at the top of the page. At the moment, if you click on “Shop,” you will just see all the available products under no particular order.

For a more seamless shopping experience, you need to scroll down the homepage where you will see the different categorizations on the right side. You can click on Green Vein, Red Vein, or White Vein to get the strains you are interested in.

They also provide a few other categories such as Sample Tins which gives you a discounted sample of a strain you are interested in; Big Bags where you can place your bulk orders; Black Label which features their premium Kratom products and finally a category known as Spec B which contains blends of different strains. The blends are highly rated on different forums, so you may want to check them out.

Product Catalog

Major Kratom has extensive product selection. Most of the big names are available here plus a couple of other lesser-known Kratom strains and some new discoveries. We’ve also pointed out that you can buy Kratom blends, which is basically a mixture of different strains that are carefully mixed to deliver a fast, intense, and long-lasting effect.

Here are some of the strains available at the moment:

  • Green Thai
  • Green Borneo
  • Green Elephant
  • Super Green Borneo
  • Jong Kong Green
  • Super Green Kapuas Maeng Da
  • Pure Red Thai
  • Red Bang Baru
  • Red Borneo
  • Red Horn
  • White Borneo
  • Sumatra Superior
  • White Vietnam

For the blends, you can purchase Black B, which is a combination of red vein Kratom and some dark green Kratom.

Product Quality

Major Kratom claims that they stock some of the highest-quality Kratom strains in the market. However, they have not mentioned any measures they have taken to guarantee purity, alkaloid content, and overall quality of their products. We don’t see any details regarding lab testing, let alone third-party lab tests. We also couldn’t find any information on measures employed to protect the products from potential contamination while in their stores. This doesn’t paint a good picture at all.

Fortunately, we came across a good number of users who are impressed by their products. The Spec B category in specific is a favorite among so many people. It’s also hugely responsible for their nomination for Best Kratom Vendor.

On a personal level, I tried some of their Pure Red Thai. I wouldn’t say it’s the best I’ve ever used, but I definitely felt its impact.

Pricing

Major Kratom prices start at around $11.99. This is not exactly cheap, plus the $11.99 is not even for a full ounce (28 grams), but rather, it is just 25 grams. 125 grams will cost you around $42.99, and 250 grams go for $70.99.

The most you can purchase from the store is 400 grams, but most strains are capped at 250 grams.

They accept all the major credit cards i.e., MasterCard, Visa, and Discover.

When placing your order, you will notice that clicking on checkout redirects you to another website by the name Bright Street Tea Company. That’s Major Kratom’s sister company. They are responsible for processing and shipping your orders.

Alternatively, you can place your orders by contacting Major Kratom through the email address or the phone number provided on their website. You can also use these numbers for assistance on any inquiries you may have about their products or practices.

Shipping and Return Policy

All orders placed before 3 PM are processed and shipped on the same day. Small orders (one or two tins) are typically shipped through USPS First Class and will be charged $2.15 for 1 tin or $2.75 for two tins. Bigger orders are shipped through USPS Priority Mail. The fees will depend on the size of your item. They also have a USPS Priority Mail Express option just in case you want your orders delivered much faster. This is usually charged $23.

Major Kratom accepts returns, but this applies to unopened products only. You must also get in touch with the company before returning your items.

Bottom Line

So, are Major Kratom worth your buck? My biggest issue with the company is the lack of proper guidelines on quality assurance and third-party lab testing. You cannot compromise on quality when dealing with Kratom and not just because it affects the results you’ll see but also because it can leave you nursing adverse reactions.

For this reason, I have to be hesitant in recommending the vendor. However, I did see several users reporting decent results after using their products. Also, the strain I used from these guys was quite acceptable, but it didn’t blow my mind away. I didn’t buy from them again, so I can’t comment on consistency.

Okay, what I’m trying to say is that the lack of details on lab testing is a cause for concern, but based on some user testimonials, it’ll be understandable if you want to give them a try, but I’ll urge you to keep an open mind.
