One such famous brand running their business in the US for quite some time is OPMS.
In this article, we will do a detailed OPMS kratom review and also share our candid opinion on the OPMS kratom products in the end. So let’s get straight to the point and start with a bit of history of OPMS brand.
OPMS Kratom Brand History
First of all, let us demystify the abbreviation for you. OPMS Stands for “Optimized Plant Mediated Solutions”. We don’t know who came up with this name or what they mean by “solutions” but it sure sounds very assuring. The OPMS Kratom brand has been operational in the US Kratom business since 2010. With a rather humble beginning with a limited clientage, the brand started its journey based in Atlanta, Georgia.
The first decade of the 21st century saw an increased awareness in the general public regarding the synthetic and GMO products that were being sold in the market. There was a popular trend among the masses to revert to “the ways of the nature” such as herbs and other natural products. This popular demand of the people led toward a mass movement that saw many people embracing (an already popular) naturally occurring botanical herb called kratom. The OPMS brand started with their business around that time. Gradually gaining popularity as people came to know more and more about their kratom products.
What is Kratom?
If you are a newbie when it comes to kratom or perhaps even a stranger, it is appropriate to do a quick introduction of this natural herb with you. The kratom, as it is popularly called, is sourced from commonly sighted trees in Southeast Asia called Mitragyna Speciosa. These widely abundant trees give out leaves that contain alkaloids. The leaves are harvested, dried, and crushed into a fine powder that is called kratom powder. The Kratom has many different types that are more popularly called kratom strains. The kratom enthusiasts, belonging to all the different walks of life, have their personal preferences when it comes to their favorite strain. This is because each strain has its unique character and properties that are just a matter of personal choice.
The OPMS kratom products have been able to occupy considerable shelf-space in the retail and head shops around the country. But are these products any good? Let’s see what their website has to say about their kratom products and the OPMS kratom brand itself.
OPMS Kratom Brand Website
The first impression about their website is that it is rather brief. Both in terms of products that they offer and the content as well. However, the look is easy on the eyes, and the layout is simple to understand. Upon browsing around for a few minutes, it is easily found that the OPMS Kratom brand offers a rather limited range of kratom products on their website. The products come with a picture of their packaging and brief descriptions. Each product or variety that they offer claims to have the unique characteristic properties that their passionate customers are looking for.
Their Claim to Fame
The brand claims to be the leaders in the Kratom and Kava industry. On their website, the boasts about their superior extraction method that they have perfected over the years. They also claim that their extraction method is unmatched in the whole US kratom industry. They do not clearly define this extraction method but they hint toward using the “cold extraction method” technique.
In this technique, the kratom powder is slowly mixed in the hot water solution until it reaches its saturation point. Thereafter, the solution is cooled within seconds which renders the extract out of the water and form up at the bottom. This concentrated mass is extracted out and is many times stronger than the original powder in terms of alkaloid concentrations.
OPMS Kratom Products
To be honest, we did not expect that the OPMS brand would be having just four lines of products on its inventory. With all the kratom strains and colors that are available in the market today, the OPMS inventory seems rather limited. But the brand claims that they specialize in what they do and within their niche, they have the best quality kratom products available. In this review, let us now discuss their products one by one.
OPMS silver is a one-time kratom extract that is available in three varieties:
- Maeng Da kratom strain
- Malay Special Reserve Kratom strain
- Thai kratom strain
The brand claims that OPMS silver is famous equally among the new and the experienced kratom enthusiasts. They also talk about the standardization process that they have in place to ensure that all products have the same alkaloid concentrations and properties all year round. We found the quality of OPMS Silver to be good. Yet, despite searching for it, we could not find out which vein colors do they use to manufacture the silver kratom. As a kratom buyer, one always prefers to know what is the vein color of the kratom. We believe that as all their OPMS silver products are standardized, it is possible that the brand uses a mix of different vein colors to standardize the alkaloid profile of the final product.
OPMS Gold is the flagship OPMS kratom product. This product is only available in 2, 3, 5 count kratom capsules. The brand, like all its other products, claims that this is an all-natural product that is manufactured using an “unmatched extraction process”. As per our experience, we found the quality of OPMS Gold to be really good. Even better than the OPMS Silver.
OPMS kratom brand offers liquid kratom products labeled as Liquid Kratom Extract. These liquid extracts come in 8 ml bottles that are intended for the single-time experience. We found the quality of this OPMS product to be decent. Additionally, we also believe that kratom customers can have much more versatility with kratom liquid extracts as compared to the regular kratom forms such as powders and capsules.

The OPMS Kratom brand claims that they manufacture their Kava extract from the purified and original Kava obtained from well-aged and mature roots. The OPMS kava product is available in 3 and 5 count capsules as well as 2 fl oz bottles. All FDA guidelines are followed in the manufacturing process and all undesirable compounds are absent from this famous branded liquid kratom product.
What Are the Buyers Saying About OPMS Kratom?
We decided to check what the OPMS customers are saying on various discussion forums like Reddit regarding their kratom. Mostly, they seemed satisfied with the quality of the kratom products that OPMS is selling. There was, however, one issue that was reported by many customers. It was regarding the standardization of the prices of kratom products. The customers reported that the prices of the same OPMS kratom products differ from one retailer to the other. For no apparent reason.
This point was highlighted by many of their customers as they suggested to the brand that they should make the retailers sell the OPMS products for a fixed price. That is, instead of selling for the prices at their will. We believe that the OPMS brand uses this variable price technique as a marketing strategy to make retailers fill their shelves with OPMS products in exchange for the freedom to sell them for whatever profit that they can make out.

Back to the buyer comments. There were also some comments from the OPMS customers about the presence of counterfeit OPMS kratom products available in the head shops. There is, however, one very convenient feature that has been introduced by OPMS on its website. The intention behind is that their customers can avoid buying fake products. This feature is available on the “authenticity” section on their website. Let us discuss this feature in a little bit more detail.
Authenticity of OPMS Products
While conducting our OPMS review, we came across a section on the OPMS kratom website that was titled “authenticity”. It seemed like a section where the brand would share the quality and authenticity certifications from its third-party auditors. But to our surprise, it was a countercheck feature that tells the customers how to visually identify OPMS kratom products based on certain printed features and serial numbers. The technique, albeit rudimentary, is nevertheless appreciable.
How Do We Rate OPMS Kratom Products?
All the four OPMS Kratom products that we experienced were of good quality. We would rate the OPMS gold to offer the most-authentic, top-quality kratom experience. OPMS silver was also quite good but we grade it second only to OPMS Gold. The Liquid Kratom Extract bottles of OPMS were also handy to carry around instead of having to deal with the powder.
The overall experience was really good. The prices that we paid for OPMS kratom products at a nearby head shop were also reasonable. Having said that, the prices did vary from one shop to another as we found out later.
We hope you like our candid and honest OPMS review. You can also visit our blog section where you will find many such informative articles and kratom news.
