Green Buffalo Kratom: In 2009 I had an accident resulting in a major injury which needed corrective surgery. Unfortunately it was an injury that would effect me for the rest of my life and was put on opiates for quite a long time. I could not stand who I was becoming with the medications they had me on and needed to find an alternative solution. Fortunately, I had a friend who knew the struggle I was going through and they introduced me to Kratom. It was amazing how much it changed my life for the better. From that moment on I knew that this seemingly unknown plant was something people should know about. At that point I became a Kratom advocate. I was sure to tell anyone that could benefit from it what this Kratom powder that I was taking (and still take) daily was all about. After trying products from countless venders, and seeing the inconsistent nature of the products available, I decided to be the change that the market needed and to find a way to offer a consistently high quality product for those who needed it. This started the R&D phase for GBK. After almost a year of importing and testing products, we were still not getting exactly what we were looking for. At this point decision was made to go directly to the farmers and to cut out the middle man. After almost another year, a ton of trial and error in manufacturing, and another countless number of imports and testing, we finally settled on our winning combination of product and process. This is how GBK became what it is today, a high quality Kratom retailer with a phenomenal product and consistency you can count on every time. Thank you for taking the time to read about our company, we hope to one day have the privilege of earning your business.
Vendor Questions and Answers
Q: What year did you begin?
A: We started our R&D phase in 2015 but officially started the company in 2017.
Q: What are your future plans for your company?
A: With growing demand for Kratom and other natural remedies across the US and North America, we are planning to bring other in demand products to our lineup so we can become a one stop shop for our customers. Our goal is to become the largest online and in store retailer for natural products on the East cost. From there we want to work our way up to being number 1 in North America. We are currently working on expanding to a larger facility and hoping to have that finalized by end of year.
Q: Tell us more about your customer service?
A: Going back to our motivation, customer service was one of the major factors in the creation of our company. We consistently treat our customers like family at GBK. Mainly because that’s how we would like to be treated! We are always willing to go the extra mile to ensure a high quality experience. A prime example is this past December when our usual parcel service (USPS) was having extreme delays, we immediately switched to UPS for our shipments. All customers who had purchased from us the day we decided to make the change had their shipping upgraded at no cost to ensure the timely delivery of their purchases. Due to the demand we have kept UPS as one of our shipping options for the foreseeable future.
Q: What are your top 5 products and why?
A: Our top 5 would be as follows:
1: Maeng Da because it is truly a superior quality product. It is a potent strain that is extremely effective at taking away pain and motivating you without becoming jittery or unfocused. It provides a great mood boost and helps relieve social anxiety
2: Red Vein Borneo because it is a very nice potency with a mild mood lift. It provides a relaxing and anxiety reducing sedative effect along with a great pin relief that will allow you to sleep through the night.
3: Thai because it’s different than most other strains. Our Thai has a nice mood lift with a mild relaxation and mild energy boost. Many of our customers suggest it’s really a “two for one” strain because it calms you and keeps you going.
4: Green Malay because it’s a great do all strain. It provides pain relief, relaxation, mood lift, focus, and energy. Being a more potent strain, it is one of the longest lasting products available.
5: Stem & Vein because we offer one of the strongest, most potent, stem & veins on the market. It’s great for taking a break from your leaf strains. It doesn’t provide as much mood lift, but does offer a nice mild sedative effect which is great for anxiety and sleep.
Q: What specials do you offer?
A: Our specials can be found in different places around the web or at our retailers. We recently started using social media and if you follow us @gbkratom on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter we offer random promotions ranging from free shipping to 5, 10, 15, or even 20% off our products.
Q: Are you cGMP certified?
A: We follow stringent manufacturing guidelines and lab test our products but are not cGMP certified.
Q: What was the motivation for starting your company?
A: With growing demand for Kratom and other natural remedies across the US and North America, we are planning to In 2009 I had an accident resulting in a major injury which needed corrective surgery. Unfortunately it was an injury that would effect me for the rest of my life and I was put on opiates for quite a long time. I could not stand who I was becoming with the medications they had me on and needed to look for an alternative. Fortunately I had a friend who introduced me to Kratom and it changed my life. The market at the time seemed to have a lot of inconsistencies in the quality and service you would get from vendor to vendor. Most vendors I had tried at the time had inconsistent from batch to batch so you almost never knew what you were going to get. After a long time of dealing with that, I decided to be the change I wanted to see in the market. Thus the idea for GBK was born.
Q: Has your company received any awards or certifications?
A: We have a very loyal customer base but have flown under the radar for quite some time. Currently we have no awards to brag of but we are a sure winner with those who have tried our products. Our capsule products are Halal and Kosher certified.
Q: What separates your company from others?
A: Hands down, has to be our products. To put it simply, our attention to detail and stringent quality control makes for a superior product. Going into further detail though, we take pride in the fact that our products don’t sit on shelves or in storage rooms for weeks or months at a time. We import whole leaves and devein them with a revolutionary system which removes more vein than any other we have seen. After deveining, we grind our products in house resulting in a more potent product by weight than others. Being that we grind and package our products daily, our customers get a freshness that results in a superior product. This, as well as our top notch customer service, is what separates us from the countless other retailers available today.
