Bouncing Bear Botanicals Review


Bouncing Bear Botanicals

Bouncing Bear Botanicals

Bouncing Bear Botanicals is run by some friendly people out of Lawrence, Kansas. They have been in business for many years and faced a bogus run in with the law in February 2010. Now recovered, this vendor continues to provide a range of interesting products. The website is fairly user friendly and customer service is often available for questions and assistance. 

Bouncing Bear Botanicals offers same day shipping for orders made by 2:00pm Monday through Friday and orders made before 10 am on Saturday. Orders place with basic shipping are said to arrive within 3-5 days of ordering. They ship in discreet, unmarked packages and also ship to PO Boxes if desired. A rewards program granting a ratio of ten dollars in “points” for every one hundred dollars in purchased products is available to repeat customers. They do not provide guest checkout which may be a nuisance for some consumers.

Bouncing Bear Botanicals once stocked a small variety of kratom powders of various strains. They carried a Green Vein Borneo Kratom, a Red Vein Borneo Kratom, and a White Vein Borneo Kratom. If you are a fan of Borneo Kratom, Bouncing Bear Botanicals was certainly once a notable destination.

Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, Bouncing Bear Botanicals has ceased the sale of kratom powder indefinitely. They continue to sell live kratom plants though the plants are rather expensive.

Bouncing Bear Botanicals Review

We had the opportunity to review some of Bouncing Bear Botanicals kratom powder prior to the closing of their kratom doors. We purchased the Borneo Green Vein Kratom powder, the Bali Premium Kratom powder and obviously, their Maeng Da Kratom powder. When our package arrived, albeit 6 days later, it was indeed in a discreet unmarked package. The kratom powder was at the correct weight or above.

Borneo Green Vein Kratom: We had to try Bouncing Bear Botanicals green vein kratom after reading some great reviews. It was certainly a green vein, though we did not find it to live up to our expectations after hearing raving reviews. Maybe we were being too harsh, but we have come to expect a certain standard with green vein and this Borneo Kratom wasn’t up to snuff.

Bali Premium Kratom: What can we say? You know Bali Premium Kratom as the lowest common denominator and this one hit the mark. We certainly would not recommend it to the seasoned kratom community member but it delivered what was to be expected.

Maeng Da Kratom: We received an acceptable Maeng Da Kratom and found it quite enjoyable. It did not knock our socks off but considering some of the Maeng Da we have received in the past, it was on par.

Conclusions regarding Bouncing Bear Botanicals

Standard shipping practices, minimal stock variety and moderate prices are tough to forget despite strong customer service and a decent web-store. We appreciate the people at Bouncing Bear Botanicals and their knowledge of ethnobotanicals but do not believe their self-removal from kratom powder sales to be a significant loss to the kratom community.
