Update: Unfortunately this post is now out of date as Kratom is no longer legal in the UK. The vendor recommended will not ship to any location where Kratom is illegal. The information in this post will still be helpful for people in any location outside of the United States where Kratom is still legal, but aside from that, this post is for entertainment purposes only.
In this post I give you my recommended source for the highest quality Mitragyna Speciosa – a natural, psychoactive plant from Southeast Asia – that I have tried so far. It’s awesome. It hands beats any other vendor I have tried before and the overall service is amazing. However, it’s a US based company.
If you were looking for a UK Kratom supplier, you may dismiss the idea of ordering from that site, or presume that it isn’t for you as you’re not living in the States, however, I believe that’s a big mistake!
With that in mind, I decided to write this post for folks living in Britain (and really anywhere else in Europe where Kratom is legal) to give you my thoughts and advice on where you guys should get this stuff.
Here’s the thing:
I, myself (the creator of this website), am based in the United Kingdom and the source I recommend in that post – Happy Hippo Herbals – is still the source I use!
I have experienced many local Kratom suppliers with varying degrees of satisfaction, but in my opinion, Happy Hippo Kratom trumps them all. It’s a little annoying! I wish I could find a comparable source without having to order internationally but unfortunately it is what it is. The quality is so much more superior in my opinion that I choose to have it shipped from abroad.
Why I Recommend Happy Hippo Herbals
Please read my Happy Hippo Herbals review for a detailed look as to why I rate them so highly and why I personally use them, but here’s an overview:
- The actual Kratom is the highest quality I have found in terms of the effects it produces on a consistent basis. And I’ve experimented with a fair few different sellers. This stuff is seriously, so much better.
- A little goes a long way. I promise you, your “sweet spot” with Kratom from Happy Hippo will be much lower than with most other vendors, making it last longer and, frankly, more pleasant to take depending on your method of consumption. You will require less teaspoons worth and this applies to all their strains, from Bali Kratom to Maeng Da to Red Vein Borneo.
- The customer support is top notch. Given the “type” of product this is, there are some pretty bad sellers out there that don’t really give off the feel of a legitimate operation. Hey, they’re probably not! Happy Hippo Herbals, on the other hand, offer great support should you need it and a pleasant shopping experience all round.
- They always over deliver! I thought I was just getting lucky but it turns out Happy Hippo always like to add in free samples with your order. Seriously, when your parcel arrives you’ll be smiling from ear to ear before you’ve even tried the products!
- Happy Hippo passes my “supplier requirement checklist” in that they don’t sell Kratom extracts, resin or other gimmicks (dried leaves are OK for making tea but straight up powder is best in my opinion). They also don’t use hyped up, irresponsible marketing. This is a legitimate supplier that provides a premium product and service to it’s customers.
It’s as Easy as Ordering from a UK Kratom Supplier
In this day and age, it hardly makes a difference what Country you order from when ordering online, does it?
Happy Hippo Herbals dispatch to the UK and pretty much every other Country where Kratom is legal and the delivery time is typically less than 10 days, so the only drawback compared to buying from a local Kratom vendor is the price for shipping.
However, as I have discussed on this site before, if you compare the quality of Kratom that Happy Hippo sell with that from many other vendors, you’re not comparing apples to apples. So it’s hard to make a comparison on price:
Good Kratom or GREAT Kratom?
When you factor in the delivery cost of ordering from Happy Hippo to the UK, it is undoubtedly more expensive than local alternatives and Happy Hippo’s Kratom is on the pricier side itself anyway.
But, as I say on this site, there’s a big difference between bad Kratom and good Kratom and there’s a bigger difference between average Kratom and GREAT Kratom. You can’t compare the two.
I almost don’t consider price when purchasing Kratom because cheaper is most definitely not always better. Quite the opposite.
So yes, you’ll pay a bit more when ordering from this source but in my opinion it’s worth it, which is why I do it! It’s simply unbeatable.
Besides, when you consider that this source has the most potent, fresh Kratom available, you’ll find you need less per dose so it ends up lasting longer anyway. If you read my dosage guide, you’ll see I recommend a dose of around 3 grams which is considerably less than some other sites recommend. And that’s because I based those guidelines on this source! What you have lasts longer, you have less to carry around with you and less powder to Toss n’ Wash. 😉
How Does the Package Arrive?
You may be concerned how the parcel from Happy Hippo will arrive and if it’s some suspicious looking package but you have nothing to worry about.
Kratom is legal in the UK of course so you’re good on that front but if you’re concerned about other people in your house seeing the parcel, there will be no mention of Kratom on it. In my experience, the deliveries have also never required a signature and even a decent sized order will slip right through the letterbox.
Your order will arrive in a USPS parcel and it will clearly be from outside the Country, but nothing particularly odd.
Don’t Judge Kratom Until You’ve Tried This Source
So there you have it. Happy Hippo Herbals is still where I recommend you get your Kratom from even if you’re based in the UK, Europe or anywhere else they ship to (and it’s legal). It’s simply the best I’ve tried for experiencing all the stimulating effects, be it for reducing pain or anxiety, experiencing euphoria, giving me energy or generally just putting me in a relaxing mood. It really has a good pep to it and can make for a good replacement for alcohol.
Let me know if you find a UK Kratom vendor that honestly matches the quality that Happy Hippo sell. I’d be keen to give it a go! For now though, I’ll be sticking with this source and it’s where I recommend your get your Mitragyna Speciosa from also. Do not judge this plant until you have tried this vendor. Simple.
