You'll be seeing quite a few changes within the Kratom.com brand, including an updated logo, packaging—and much more. We're celebrating 20 years in the industry and felt like it was time to freshen things up a bit. However, one thing that will always remain the same is the quality of our products. We'll always carry and supply the original Maeng Da™ and Bali Premium™—that we introduced to the market in 2001 as well as the service that you've come to expect. This is year come with some surprises that will go hand-in-hand with the new brand - for example, new value oriented savings opportunities for both consumers and our vendor and distributor partners, a NEW local Vendor Locator Map and or course a handful of exciting new products like our new Kratomade™ instant, flavored extracts and the first ever Salt-Based (SB-1™) extracts—two exciting game changers. As always, don't hesitate to reach out to us with any questions!
