BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND...
A few months ago we asked some of the Approved Vendors to offer some discounts to our community. A lot of them graciously did. We have been asked to bring those discounts back. The following vendors would like to share the love for this forum with you. I know we all appreciate it.

I'm not a medical professional, but If I understand correctly, PEA targets a receptor in the cell's nucleus that regulates pain and inflammation. It also binds to cannabinoid-like receptors that play a role in desensitizing pain.

I found that Amazon.US sells it as bulk powder and capsules. Amazon.CA doesn't have it, but you can order just as
easily from Amazon.US. Vitalitus (where I ordered from) also now sells it on Amazon. I'm sure more health food stores & online sites have it now, especially after the National Institute of Health journal article. As long as the product is pure with nothing added; and it's lab tested, it'll probably be fine.

I hope we'll be in the majority of people for whom it works!! Hope you feel better this week. :-)


Yes ...that is my understanding as well.

It is available for international shipping from www.rs4supplements.com/en

I have not put in an order yet...still some more research to do.

Also just in regards to Harmony Herbals...I should be able to do a review in the next week or so.

madmaxnightrider wrote: I hate to keep asking you this bomalley but in your honest opinion, How was Harmony Herbals Kratom? Did it give you any Pain Relief at all or was did it just fall flat for you? I know each & every person is going to have different reactions to each Vendor. So what works for me may not work for you & vice versa or verse visa HA!


Harmony Herbals White Borneo...did very little for me. I have tried it many times and each time disappointed...especially after your favourable review of this strain I expected more. So glad I did not order more than 30 Gms of this strain.

Green Malaysian - nothing special. It was just as favourable as other Green Malay strains that I have used.

Red Bali - Good pain relief with this one

I know I am no madmaxknightrider and will probably NEVER do detailed reviews like he does, BUT the fact is that I have NEVER noticed any mood effects from taking Kratom. At present I do not have any mood issues.

For me, my mood is wholly dependent on pain control. If I can get pain under control, my mood improves significantly! :blink:

But all this just points out how the effects of Mitragyna Speciosa are highly individual. There is no doubt in my mind that underlying body chemistry affects how this plant will act in your body which is why experimenting is so important.

Other aspects of Harmony Herbals as a vendor.... customer service and packaging.

Customer service: I am in Canada only 30 min drive from Harmony Herbals. I get the "your order has shipped" email a week after my order is placed but once it has shipped is usually arrives within 2 days (no complaints about Canada Post). So their service is slow considering other vendors promise same day shipping.

Packaging: powder is packaged in plain brown paper bags, taped shut. The bags are NOT resealable so repackaging is necessary for larger amounts.

While I am glad I tried them out I am not sure I will be re-ordering from them again. Selection is quite limited and there are other vendors with the same quality Kratom but more selection and comparable pricing.

Thanks very much for the Review! 30 min. from Harmony Herbals. Wow you could have went there & picked up your order. I wish I had a Vendor that Close to me. I wish the Strains would have worked for you better. That sucks. No one individual is a better reviewer than the next. Everybody has their own way of reviewing. I am not a better Reviewer than anybody here.

The effects that you had with Harmony's Strains just shows you that everybody will react differently just like you said. It's highly individual. I know what you mean about Pain Control. Whenever I get Migraines my mood really drops. I have to go lay down in a cool, dark room for a few hours. If I can find a strain or blend that relieves the Migraine just enough where I can stand it then my Mood will Raise.

Well 30 min if I could just drive right there. Unfortunately traffic here is horrendous and parking...I would probably need 30 mins just to find a place to park. So not worth the time and hassle ever driving into Vancouver.

my last Harmony Herbal order arrived today ...it was placed on Nov 8. I got a teensy tiny bottle of CDB oil (30 ml maybe) but will try the CBD ointment first on my skin to see if if I react to it. Even if it does work I cannot see using it very often...almost $100 for that little bottle.

also got some blue lotus flowers...not quite sure what to do with them. Most instructions on the internet say to make a tea with 2 Cups of boiling water for 5 Gms of dried flower.

I might try that first.

Tried the blue lotus.. Made 2 C of tea with 3 gms....had a nice little nap. Definitely very relaxing.

Will do less next time, I do not need to be THAT relaxed! I put the dried flowers into my spice mill and milled it into a finer grind before making the tea. Not sure if that made it more potent or not....finer grind means more surface area to release the alkaloids maybe?

Definitely did not need Kratom as well so was able to reduce the number of kratom doses that day. SUCCESS!

I have also been using the CBD oil just on my skin as a patch test....so far no reaction. Have not tried ingesting it yet.

Would I take it when I am having pain? and wait for a result? or should I take it regularly through the day?

Could anyone advise?

UPDATE

Harmony Herbals White Borneo...did very little for me. I have tried it many times and each time disappointed...especially after your favourable review of this strain I expected more. So glad I did not order more than 30 Gms of this strain.


Went back to HH White Borneo this week and found out that if I took more I got better effects. I always use about 2 gms of a white because they are so stimulating BUT my original review may have been because I just did not take enough.

I took 3.5 Gms of the White Borneo mixed with a Red Horn 1Gm from another vendor today and I had a much better effect...more along the lines of your original review madmax, BUT not enough pain relief so this strain would be good for me on days for a pick me up in the morning when I am NOT needing pain relief. I really need to have at least 4 gms of a Red or Yellow for pain relief.

You always know when something works well for energy for me when I get into the kitchen and start baking IN THE AFTERNOON! Today I made gluten free pumpkin squares....YUM!

Tried the Blue Lotus tea again too, but nothing...so won't be going back to that again - too expensive.

So not sure WHY I need to have the higher doses of Kratom to get the effects I need. Tolerance may be an issue ...when I first started I was at 2 Gms however, as I was experimenting and titrating the dose, I found that when I got to 4 Gms everything was much better...ALL the effects were better including much better pain control.

So I have stayed at 4 - 4.5 Gms.

Probably will order the White Borneo again from HH so that I can continue to have a small supply on hand. Definitely not a strain I would use often.

I tried Blue Lotus Tea several times with not much effects as well. I get much better effects with the Extracted Powder than form the BL Tea. Sounds like you need another Vendor for Pain Relief. This Vendor would help you with Energy but nothing else it seems. Sometimes you have to go the other way & take a higher dosage instead of taking less Kratom. It's weird I know.

Every Vendor's Kratom will Be Different as well as every single Batch. White Strains are the most unpredictable of all the strains. They can be overstimulating, jittery & cause the wobbles with dizziness. Just be careful with the dosage when taking any white strains. I mainly stick with Greens & Reds. I go for the Whites when I feel the Worst because they seem to have more Mood Lifting Properties as well as Energy.
