When it comes to making purchases, you want to find a vendor that is considered to be legit. The biggest question I get asked about Kratom is, “Is XYZ vendor legit?”. That’s where I come in.
I’ve been where you were — confused about the different vendors and wondering which ones are good among all those present online and claiming to be the best.
That is why I decided to write this review of a Kratom vendor named “I Am Shaman,” telling everything there is to know about it, with you in mind.
About I Am Shaman
The vendor, I Am Shaman is a Chicago-based company dealing in a vast range of Kratom, entheogens, ethnobotanicals. The website’s domain was registered in 2002, which gives rise to the impression that the company has been working since then. The website www.iamshaman.com leads us to their newly launched website www.shamansgarden.com.
The About us page of the Shaman’s Garden shows the firm’s devotion towards the remedial botanicals and agriculturists alike. The page also mentions the work they have done to stop the banning of Kratom in some states.
The old website does not look user-friendly or easy to navigate. However, the new website is better than the old one in both areas. They have provided detailed information about their product range with pictures, shipping, refund policies, and payment options to understand the vendor’s protocols for dealing in Botanicals.
Do They Have Accreditation From American Kratom Association?
Unfortunately, they do not have the accreditation from American Kratom Association, and it seems like they do not have any plans to get it done in the future. This may be because their business would not get affected by the reduced Kratom buyers because of no accreditation as they do not deal only in Kratom. Kratom is just one of the many remedial herbs they offer their customers.
Do They Provide Lab Test Reports?
Third-party Lab test reports are very important to scrutinize the products of any Kratom vendor. These reports determine if the products are free from chemicals, pesticides, or heavy metals.
However, the vendor does not publicize their products’ lab test reports even after claims of having lab-tested their products from third parties. We could not find any information about the labs they are linked to regarding the testing of their products.
The company has various products available for its customers, including entheogens, ethnobotanicals, and Kratom. Because we are discussing Kratom here, that’s why we will tell you the range of Kratom products you can find on I Am Shaman’s website.
The vendor offers around eight strains of Kratom. When you compare their product range with other Kratom suppliers dealing solely in Kratom, you will find their products on the lower side.
However, I Am Shaman possesses almost all exotic and loved strains. The strains included in the company’s collection are
- – Premium Bali Powdered Leaf
- – Borneo Green Vein Powder
- – Borneo White Vein Powder
- – Green Horn Powder
- – Green Malay Powder
- – Maeng Da Powder
- – Red Horn Powder
- – Red Vein Korth Leaf Powder
Kratom resin is a refined and concentrated form of Kratom’s alkaloids and bioactive compounds. These compounds give Kratom its characteristic effects, making Kratom resins stronger than normal Kratom powders. I Am Shaman also offers some Kratom strains in the form of resins. These includes
- – Powdered Bali Extract 10x Resin
- – Powdered Bali Extract 15x Resin
- – Powdered Bali Extract 20x Resin
- – Maeng Da 25x Powdered Extract

Discounts And Coupon Codes
We’d rather find a coupon code before buying Kratom from this vendor because of their high prices. However, sadly, this vendor does not appear to have any discounts available.
Customer Care Services
The customer service that you receive when making a purchase is crucial in deciding whether or not you want to return for the next purchase. www.resellerratings.com has mixed reviews about the company’s customer service.
Most of the consumers were happy with the representatives’ dealing and manners. However, one customer wrote that he was laughed at by the customer care representative when he called for a refund because he never received it. Still, this could be because of miscommunication, as many other people were satisfied with the vendor’s customer services.
Reputation With Consumers
The company’s website does not have a review section, so it’s impossible to know what customers think about the vendor directly through the website. However, www.resellerratings.com has about 55 reviews about I Am Shaman, of which 83.7% have recommended this vendor. A bit of a concerning issue is that the seller has had no review since April 2020, and the last review they had was very bad.
While I am Shaman can cost you a fortune, this can be attributed to their Kratom products’ quality and the source. However, to quell your concerns about the legitimacy of this site, be sure to check other sites for reviews and more information. This will help you make an informed decision and determine if this site is right for you.
