I've noticed that some White strains are mellower than others. Sumatran White Vein is very mellow for me, as are White Horn varieties (usually, but there may be exceptions to the rule there).

I use White Veins very sparingly, just the tip of the tsp is enough for me. They have their place, depending on one's metabolism and needs at the moment.

It was, I asked to hear what everyone’s favorite blend was to tho. This topic has sparked my interest in trying a white/red blend. So would you say a white strains is like drinking a cup of coffee type energy, like to much could leave you jittery?

Yes, maybe (likely). Some people have opposite results and find whites mellowing. But GENERALLY, yes. Too much will aggravate anxiety and ruin the good part, so use sparingly while trying it. BoMalley is almost exclusively a red vein woman, but I do believe she will pop in here to say, "yes" also. No two whites are the same. Trial and error. Enjoy the experiment!

Cool. I feel the same way with whites, but I am finding a good base white goes,well with the Malay type green.. I like the dark green strands . White Vietnam I get from the herbal cafe blends awesome to me as well
I would think a green Bali and white indo would mix well, just saying . I might try that

You are right...after I re-read I realized I responded much too quickly!

I find whites CAN make you jittery if you take too much...BUT unlike caffeine I do not come crashing down after it wears off. It takes a while to get the dose just right for your tolerance.

My recent blend was a White Sumatra and Green Malay not White Borneo as I originally posted. I took it again this am and was able to spend a few hours in the kitchen before my back needed a rest. So definitely a new discovery for me in my Kratom experiments.
However, I think my use of this blend will not be frequent as I really did not find it helpful for pain relief, BUT at least I will want to keep a few samples on hand for times like this ie recovering from a virus.
