Golden Monk is a kratom company based in Las Vegas, Nevada from where they serve customers in the United States and in Canada. They also have an office in Lisboa, Portugal for their EU customers. Golden Monk produces kratom in powder and capsules, which are the most common forms of processed kratom that you would find around.
This review covers aspects that are important to kratom customers which include:
- Availability of multiple strains. Customers prefer companies with a wide range of options to choose from.
- Quality and Safety.
- Discounts and Offers. Little discounts go a long way in endearing customers to a brand.
- Refund policy. Customers would like to know how the company handles the refund/return policy in case there is something wrong with the product.
Kratom leaves veins and strains
Golden Kratom products are classified according to the main kratom strains named after the color of the veins of the leaves. The major three are Red, Green, and White. Red-veined kratom leaves are the most mature while white-veined kratom leaves are those harvested when the plant is at its earlier stages of maturity. Green-veined kratom sits just in the middle of the maturity stage.
However, this classification has nothing to do with quality. It does not mean red-veined strains are of greater quality than white-veined strains. The specific strains also available include Maeng Da, Bali, Borneo, Sumatra, Indo, Thai, etc.
Golden Monk claims to have built relationships with verified kratom farmers in Indonesia to keep their supply running although testing and packaging happens at their location in the United States. And apparently, the company conducts up to 6 lab tests per ton of kratom in order to maintain quality and uphold safety. The tests are for microbe screening, heavy metals screening, and alkaloids screening. And a certificate of analysis is available on the website. In addition, Golden Monk is registered under the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) program of the American Kratom Association, which is aimed at regulating the standards of kratom that enters the USA market.
Discounts and Offers
There is a discount code for every new customer to get up to 5% off their first order. In addition, bi-weekly promotional discounts are run for repeat customers who have subscribed to receive such. Unlike the new customer discount, the later type of discounts are held randomly and so winning is not certain. In addition, customers who make orders exceeding 1 kilo or 1000 capsules may request a sample and Golden Monk would include an additional 15 capsules of any desired strain. Besides this, no other free samples are offered.
The company has a 30-day (beginning from when the tracking number shows ‘delivered’) refund policy that applies to not just unopened products but even the ones that have been opened. Although in the case of opened products, they must have 85% of their contents intact. In general, Golden Monk does not require the customer that requests a refund to supply a reason for doing so. The company only requires that the product for which a refund is being requested must be returned before the refund is issued. The process seems easy as you can reach out to the customer service via email or a phone call.
Unlike Golden Monk, Way More Naturals has kratom powder and capsules in the yellow strain. Yellow (or Gold) kratom is a new classification of kratom that is a result of the blending of multiple strains (red, white, green) or dried using an unconventional product. On the Way More Naturals website, you can find Yellow Bali, Sunda, Hulu Kapuas, Maeng Da, Vietnam, etc. Also, Way More Naturals has a more detailed discount program, offering multiple variety packs as well as free samples without any obligation.
Visit Way More Naturals to find the best quality kratom powder and capsules in the US. We remain the #1 choice of many customers for organic, lab-tested, and premium-grade kratom.
