These days Kratom has caught on as a popular trend due to its wonderful healing properties which if used correctly can aid in a lot of problems such as chronic pain, mental stress, and even depression.
Our reviews are targeted towards making the masses aware of the correct use of Kratom, which can only be possible if the user has prior knowledge and accurate information.
We know that people who stumble across our website are in search of quality Kratom and especially pure extracts, so to help them out we have done our homework beforehand and given an unbiased review of some of the popular vendors out there. Stick to the rest of the post to find out who will we be reviewing this time!
About Gaia Ethno Botanicals
To be honest we will not be exactly starting off this post with an introduction about Gaia ethnobotanicals, as it is evident that one does not need to familiarize themselves with this vendor. Once you start using Kratom,
Gaia will be amongst some of the initial names you will come across. This company has been present for quite some while and is considered as one of the big players in the Nootropics playground. The business is owned by Daniel Bower who has a keen interest in Kratom and makes sure he deals with his customers directly.
What products are popularly sold by this company?
Gaia ethnobotanicals have been selling Kratom in all available forms including powdered, Kratom capsules and even as tea. This kratom has been sourced from freshly dried leaves of the Kratom plant in South East Asia. Gaia has been a proud manufacturer of the red, white, green and yellow strains of Kratom, and some special blends.
The special blends are a concoction of three or more blends such as the Ganesh MD, Green Dragon, Red Dragon, Purple 8 in 1, and the White Dragon. They also have some sampler products of different weights, the most famous of which is the Gaia Welcome sampler and the Ouncer sampler.
Gaia Kratom product prices
Gaia Kratom falls in the lower price range category with the standard strains being sold for $10 for the 1 oz package. The Kratom samplers are priced at $10 dollars for the ouncer sampler, $37.50 for the Gaia Welcome sampler, and the prices increase up to $150 for the 1000g sampler.
The Kratom blends are also available at the same price as the standard strain which is $10 and was quite a relief for me as I was expecting a bit of a surge in the prices.
So I think it would be accurate if we classify Gaia as one of the vendors selling products at rock bottom prices, also keeping in mind that they do offer a 20% discount on these already low prices if cryptocurrency is used.
Personal experience with Gaia Kratom
Gaia Kratom is a fairly old company as compared to some of the new vendors out there, so I did not really have to particularly test it out just for the sake of this review, as I was familiar with this brand and had used it several times in the past few years.
I will be writing down a few of those experiences which will give readers an idea of what this brand is all about. Since this brand is also low priced, I would not hesitate to review my experiences with some of the special blends and extracts. The products I have personally tried out are:
1. Gold Bali Kratom powder: I tried out Gold Bali after a particularly rough day at work expecting it to put me into a deep sleep. I was tremendously wrong as it kept me awake for well past my bedtime with the same sort of jitters you get from caffeine overdose. The next day was even rougher for me due to last night’s experiment after which I decided not to repeat the mistake of having this strain again at night.
2. Welcome Samplers Pack: this is one of the products I would recommend to anyone starting out with this brand. I ordered a few yellows, a few whites, the White Dragon and the Plantation, and each of these strains was super powerful.
3. Red Bali Kratom powder: The strain which I have used the most is the Red Bali. My admiration for this product can be measured by the fact that I even emailed the owner after trying out this strain and was pleasantly surprised when he emailed me back.
Gaia Ethnobotanicals controversy
Gaia Ethnobotanical Kratom was also amongst those on the list of vendors being possibly contaminated with a Salmonella outbreak.
The recalled products were those that were sold online at the consumer level and were contaminated despite following the FDA’s sterilization guidelines. Gaia did its best to tackle the situation by calling and emailing all its customers and requesting them to discard all of the products sold by them.
Last year in October I ordered a stock from Gaia which did not give me the required effect. I was a bit puzzled and spent some time searching around on forums such as Reddit and Quora and found a few users who had bought stock in the past two months to be complaining of the same thing.
One even went on to say that he messaged the owner and got a reply from him that ‘it was not the product at fault, it is your body chemistry’. This retort put me off a bit. I am sure the owner is a great guy, but he should have dealt with the situation in a better manner.
While you are on the quest of finding the perfect Kratom, you should keep in mind the characteristics you are looking for.
If you are looking for something in the lower price range you should keep your expectations a bit low as compared to a luxury item. Gaia Kratom was not at all bad according to the money, but the standard strains were no luxury strains either.
I would still recommend Kratom users to familiarize themselves with this vendor as well, as they might find something that would strike their interest as well.
