At a glance, Amazing Botanicals has everything you might hope for in a kratom vendor. A clean website that’s easy to navigate, professionally packaged product, and a wide selection of kratom powders, capsules, and extracts.
Price-wise, they’re definitely not the cheapest. But their products come at just the right cost to make them accessible to most buyers. However, even with all the makings of a go-to, Amazing Botanicals might be up to some shady business practices that could deter careful buyers.
Amazing Botanicals’ website showcases designs and layouts that you would expect from a vendor that seriously values branding. They also extend that attention to detail when it comes to packaging. Their powders come in neatly branded mylar bags that exude a high-end, premium aura.
Capsules on the other hand, come in brown-tinted bottles complete with the brand’s labels and information about the products contained inside. Extracts use the same brown tinted bottles, save for their kratom shot and tincture that arrive in smaller, glass vials.
The Amazing Botanicals selection is nothing short of amazing indeed. Their wide array of kratom products can have you browsing for hours. But of course, their powders remain the star of the show. They sell powders in every color vein, and brandish a strain line-up that mixes together standard picks and rarities.
What’s even more interesting is that they don’t require any sort of wholesale sign-up before you can buy in large quantities. Instead, they provide their 5 and 10 kilogram options right on their product page for anyone to order.
Smaller retail packets weigh 30g, 100g, 250g, 500g, and 1000g. For buyers who prefer capsules, they sell bottles in 30ct, 65ct, 150ct, 300ct, and 1000g denominations.
So, what do customers have to say about their products? Well, throughout their website, reviews remain largely optimistic. They get the occasional three or four star review, but none of the comments on-site are damaging enough to taint their reputation.
And that’s where the kratom enthusiasts from Reddit step in. According to various threads, the vendor has been known to censor unwanted comments, refusing to approve submitted reviews that don’t support their reputation. Lots of Redditors also claim that their product is substandard at best, and customer service is trash.
Are they the cheapest vendor on the block? Far from it. But are their prices accessible anyway? Sure. Although inching close to the expensive category, the vendor maintains their products well within reach for the average Joe.
Here’s how they compare to other well-known names in the industry:

Amazing Botanicals price per gram falls between 0.19¢ and 0.079¢. All things considered, those are pretty low prices, especially when compared to similar vendors like Buy Bulk Kratom USA and PA Botanicals.
But keep in mind that you can still get kratom for much cheaper through various other vendors. Some brands have been known to sell kilograms for as little as 0.06¢ per gram, which definitely isn’t a long shot from Amazing Botanicals. But if you’re a penny-pincher, the slight discrepancy makes a big difference.
On their website, reviews for Amazing Botanicals remain largely positive. Reddit also houses a few optimistic comments about the brand. So, in a way, you might say they do have a mostly positive reputation across their consumer base.
“From service, shipping, to the product, Amazing Botanicals is the best!!! Online or by phone, you can never go wrong getting their top notch products.” – Amazing Botanicals website
“I’ve been buying from Amazing Botanicals for a few years now. The quality is spot on, pricing is competitive and service is top notch. That’s why I keep coming back.” – Amazing Botanicals website
“Superior quality Kratom at a great price!! Excellent customer service as well. I will be using Amazing for all of my future Kratom needs.” – Amazing Botanicals website
“I use them and I think they’re just okay. Decent quality, good prices.” – Reddit user
“They are great on customer service though. Red Bali is a good staple on their menu.” – Reddit user
While the vendor tries to hide negative comments on their website, Reddit sets us free with the whole, unedited truth. According to a number of kratom users on Reddit, Amazing Botanicals might not be as amazing as they paint themselves to be.
“Starting to think they are scammers. Ordered over week ago and USPS is still waiting for the package. UPDATE: Got my package, it sucked.” – Reddit user
“The powder in the first order is basically useless crap that’s ineffective. When the second order arrived half the order was missing from the package. I’ve sent an email saying I’d like a timely response in getting the missing extracts shipped — 3 days later, no response so far. These people have [bad] product, [bad] customer service and don’t give two Fs about customers. They have no problem posting their fake ass reviews, taking your money and then treat customers like a complete inconvenience to their day.” – Reddit user
“The reviews on their website are fake… well at least if you have anything to say that’s not 5 stars they censor IT AND DONT PUT IT UP PUBLICLY. (I know this because this is the review I put there and it is still nowhere to be found on their site.) – Reddit user
“Yeah I’ve bought from them multiple times in the beginning. It works, just weak.” – Reddit user
“I was not as happy with the quality but for the price I was paying for it it’s okay.” – Amazing Botanicals website
Amazing Botanicals implements a rewards program that earns buyers points for every successful transaction. These points accumulate over time, and can be used to get discounts on future orders.
Of course, they also have a mailing list that lets you get first wind of their latest discounts and promotional offers. And to sweeten the deal even further, they provide free shipping on all orders regardless of how much or how little you’re actually buying.
Based on information on their website, the vendor does put their kratom batches through third party lab tests. However, they don’t state what kind of tests they perform, and whether they test to check for mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine concentrations.
On top of that, the vendor doesn’t make its tests public, which raises a few red flags for more discerning buyers. It’s one thing to claim that you perform tests, and another thing to show receipts for your lab testing claims. As of writing, it’s not sure whether the vendor agrees to send out copies of their reports to buyers who make the request.
The American Kratom Association is a consumer-led initiative that hopes to support kratom legislature and freedom. To do this, they audit vendors to show governments and the FDA that kratom quality and safety can be secured and guaranteed. This in turn protects buyers from potentially risky product, making kratom more controlled.
To get AKA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certification, vendors need to submit for an evaluation. This includes paying a fee and scheduling a site visit. During the inspection, AKA officials check facilities, machines, employees, and procedures and qualify them based on a specific set of standards.
As of writing, the Amazing Botanicals vendor seems to have started with the process. However, they have yet to receive AKA-GMP compliance certification.
Save for their shady business practices involving the censorship of negative reviews, Amazing Botanicals remains a legitimate vendor. Do note however that multiple buyers have complained of serious delays in order fulfillment that make the vendor look like a scammer during the long wait.
Other than that, Amazing Botanicals has no involvement with any legal issues or court cases, and none of their batches have been recalled by the FDA.
Their alluring array of products and okay prices make them an okay choice if you’re just scouting your options. With powders in exotic strains and unique kratom extracts lining their shelves, there’s nothing wrong with testing the waters.
But if you’re big on customer service and fast shipping, they might not be for you. The fact that they also try to polish their reputation through less-than-ideal methods might rub some buyers the wrong way. So, if you ever decide to give them a shot, try not to expect anything too amazing.
