If you are wondering if you should buy from the website: thegoldenmonk.com, please read this review. Is this vendor legit? Do they have any credibility? I am here to clarify these questions with my personal experience.
I have been purchasing kratom for many years and I have built this website to help inform users about the risks and benefits – especially when it comes to new less established vendors. Luckily, I have tested this vendor personally and can verify some things about their product quality and service.
First off, if you have stumbled across these guys or have placed an order with them and are concerned, there is not need to worry. But let’s go deeper and look at the overall features of this kratom vendor.
I found thegoldenmonk.com website to be very pleasant and easy to navigate. I found products easily and quickly and had no issues adding or removing items from the cart. Their website is not “in your face” and there are no annoying pop-ups or clickbait that always annoys shoppers.
I liked their website for the fact that it was to-the-point and easy to navigate. The website speed was not an issue either which was great.
I ended up buying two products from them: green maeng da and their red bali both in 1 kilo amounts. These two strains seem to be their most popular based on the website reviews and they are my own two personal strains.
The Checkout Process
Getting to the checkout was easy once I added the products to cart, I got redirected to the checkout page. Using my credit card was effortless and easy. After I paid for my order, I received my confirmation email that my order was received.
The results after placing my order
It took about 3 days to get my order here in South Carolina. The packaging quality was great and I was impressed to see this attention to detail from a smaller less known vendor. My favorite part about the packaging from The Golden Monk was they included a thick inner ziplock bag. I really don’t mind the fancy packaging in the aluminium foil bags/pouches but getting all the product out can be a hassle.
The Golden Monk went to the effort to put it in this inner bag. The other good thing about this is if the outer bag gets damaged, the product has an extra layer of protection. I have had issues twice now from other vendors who pack the products in the pouches where their product gets busted open when shipping – what a mess. Anyway, this is not an issue with this vendors product so I am happy about that.
I took 3.5 grams of their green maeng da. The effects were great and felt instantly after taking it on an empty stomach (with orange juice). No nausea or upset stomach. The product was of a fine grind like they advertise and it had a pungent fresh smell. Overall the product quality from thegoldenmonk.com is really up there. The effects lasted for a good 4 hours and as far as their green maeng da goes, I can say its quality.
I took 3 grams of their red bali before bed. I got my usual sleepy and calming effects I see with gaia. Their red bali is comparable to the red bali from gaia and I think I may even switch over to these guys or cycle the strains between golden monk and gaia. I really liked the golden monk’s bali over the maeng da but I prefer reds in general. Overall I am very very happy with their bali strain, but there maeng da is nothing to complain about either.
Would I shop here again?
I would certainly shop at thegoldenmonk.com again. Their prices are great and their service is as well. These guys may be new but don’t sweep them under the rug as they certainly have a good product and act like a bigger vendor. I plan to do a review soon about the newest vendors in 2018 and ill certainly put these guys at the top of the list. I hope you enjoyed my review guys and found it helpful. If you have any questions, use the contact form on the site and ill be happy to get back to you (sometimes I takes me a week or two though and I am on holidays for 3 weeks in Sept.)
