An overview of OPMS kratom
In the world of kratom vendors, it can be a man- an eat-man scene where buyers can get ripped off with dubious products that are not worth their time or money. So that’s why sellers like OPMS Kratom deserves an extra hard look at whether they stack up to the label of the honest straight-up vendor of kratom products.
Who are they, and can you trust them with stuffing their products into your body? In this article, I pick out the myths and facts and unveil out to you the story behind OPMS Kratom and its products.
OPMS Kratom is a company located in Atlanta, Georgia US specializing in the production of kratom which it sells online. They have in operation for several years, building up a popular following in the market. In their disclaimer page, they also state that their distributor is Choice Organics who are based in Los Angeles, California.
OPMS, the acronym in the company’s name, stands for Organically Purified Mitragynine Speciosa. So we get the idea that their products are organic and its all about Mitragynine Speciosa, the scientific name for kratom. But there is a twist to this because the company also has another OPMS acronym associated with it, this time standing for Optimized Plant Mediated Solutions.
Kind of confusing?
This is not to mention Kratom OPM, which you should not confuse with OPMS Kratom. Kratom OPM (Organic Pleasure Management) is another branded extract product from another company that is less established than OPMS Kratom. Finally, OPMS Kratom’s name seems to be tricked up to make you think there is an opium connection to the company’s products. However, this appears to be no more than a marketing gimmick.
What distinguishes OPMS Kratom from any of its peers is the production and the extraction method they apply to their kratom product.
Benefits of OPMS products
The company’s products are reputed to have the following benefits
- Help in pain relief
- Reduce anxiety
- Can produce euphoria
- Can treat addiction
OPMS Kratom provides just three products to cater to your kratom needs and varieties. That may not seem like a great thing considering we have scores of kratom strains from red, white to green plus their different variants. Can all the kratom lovers find what they want in this rather narrow product range? Perhaps not.
That said, OPMS Kratom offerings seem to have hit it big with the market so this may be an angle that many users are not particularly bothered about.
So which are the products being offered by OPMS Kratom in this product range? The products offered by OPMS Kratom are the following:
OPMS gold kratom
According to OPMS Kratom, this is supposed to be their biggest hitting product although few customers seem to share that enthusiasm judging from their preference of the other products on offer.
It comes in packs containing just 5 capsules each. That is a bit on the low side, but it’s supposed to reflect the fact that is quite potent. You don’t get any indication whether it’s red, white or green kratom, however.
OPMS silver kratom
This product, which comes second in potency based on the company’s claims, also comes in capsule form. Each pack carries 64 capsules. This can last you anywhere between 3 weeks or 4 months depending on your usage.
It is offered in 3 different blends, which include Maeng Da, Thai, and Malay, which is labeled as “Special Reserve.” The packaging was designed to allow easy portability so that you can take it on the go. It can easily fit in your purse or pocket, making it convenient when you are traveling. OPMS Silver is made from very finely ground powder which maximizes surface area allowing more of the kratom to be packed into the capsule.
OPMS Liquid Kratom
This is the most popular OPMS kratom product. It’s a highly concentrated kratom shot that is carried in an 8 mL bottle. You can also buy it in bulk by ordering a box that carries 45 bottles each of the product. For a very little amount in each bottle of just 8 mL, it’s quite costly.
All three products are said to have gone the same production and extraction method, designed to maximize their potency.
OPMS Kratom claims that their products are produced using a specialized patented process that is unique to it. They, therefore, say that rival products are attempting to imitate their products, and buyers need to be vigilant against buying these counterfeit versions. Deciding if OPMS Kratom itself is genuine kratom is one hurdle. But to say that their products are being counterfeited and users need to watch out just adds to the headache.
Nonetheless, fakes trying to imitate OPMS Kratom do exist so certainly customers need to watch out. Helpfully, the company features examples of some of these on their website. A google search of these fakes will also turn up dozens of examples. They also claim in their site that they have a legal department fully engaged in hunting down and busting the counterfeiters.
OPMS Kratom: what is different?
The company bills its products as being the highest quality kratom in the market. This is all down to the production and extraction method they use. It’s not the regular boiling process employed by other companies or the alcohol solvent. In that process, kratom is boiled in water or some other liquid. The resulting resin is then pounded into a thick kratom powder to produce the required kratom extract. However, OPMS instead uses the so-called cold water pressure extraction. The company says that this method ensures maximum alkaloid retention to improve the kratom potency. The level of preservation is said to be as much as 95% of the alkaloid content, and the company says this purity is unmatched by what is possible by any other existing extraction method.
The company, however, fails to provide information about the extraction factor which they have attained from the kratom leaf. Typically, most vendors will tag their extracts with indicators such as 15x, 30x, or 50x to give you an idea of the potency of the extract. It’s the standard practice of other suppliers, yet OPMS has no such information which means precision of dosage is difficult.
Price and availability
OPMS Kratom isn’t cheap by any standards. Compared with alternative extract products, expect to cough tons from your wallet if you go shopping for this product. For example, look at the price of 1 package containing 2 capsules if you buy OPMS kratom from the K- Kratom website.
1 pack(2 capsules)
Cost Price per capsule
This compares unfavorably with high-quality extract capsules which go for between $2 and $4 per capsule.
Even more pricey is the liquid kratom which goes for $19.95 for each 8mL bottle. (this is about 12 gm of Maeng Da extract)
This compares unfavorably with non-extract Maeng Da, which goes for $8.80 per 12 gm. So OPMS liquid costs 2.3 times more!
- Highly popular
- Extraction and production method is unique
- Users report that products are potent
- Slick and colorful advertising
- Sell only three types of kratom
- Offers the only capsule for sale and no powder
- Is quite Expensive
- Likelihood of more side effects and the possibility of tolerance
- No indication of the red, white or green Kratoms in the product
So should you buy from OPMS Kratom and join the crowd who are scampering to get their purchase of the product? There are a few misgivings I have about their stuff. It’s billed to be organic, but there is no elaboration from them about that. Is this merely a marketing gimmick?
That said, their products do seem to pack a lot of power, going by the positive sentiments of customers. Customers feel they are really getting what they asked for and then more. But there are also some ominous undertones when I look closer at some of those views. While acknowledging the potent effects, some are hinting that OPMS Kratom’s maybe spiked with some other unknown substances, which is giving the potency.
Maybe the inclusion of some legal high products?
No hard evidence has been unearthed about this, but it gets one concerned given the company doesn’t say much about what is contained in the products. Another drawback is that we have no clear indication of where the various kratom stains of red, green, and white fit. All this has been blurred so that we just have three products.
Need I also mention the fact that these products are insanely expensive? For these reasons, I won’t be the first to endorse OPMS Kratom if you are looking for a kratom product. That said, if you still want to try them, if only to know what the buzz is all about, then buy only from a reputable vendor known and trusted for stocking the genuine product. The fake imitations are likely to be dangerous and yet just as expensive.
