Hello, I'm looking for advice from seasoned kratom users. which is more potent - wildcrafted or commercially grown? I suppose I've only had commercially grown, although I don't know for sure, because the 2 places I've ordered from so far didn't specify. If so, I like what I've gotten so far, but am wondering if wildcrafted might be a bit stronger? Thanks in advance for any replies.

I have had Kratom from friends, orders I bought, samples, and friends of friends. I have had over 100 types of Kratom, easily, hands down. Maybe around 150? That might be a stretch. I can tell you that it depends on your supplier. In our case, the Plantation seems to beat it all, but there is a popular myth going around stating that the old leafs that are harvested contain more alkaloids, and are therefore more potent. This could be true, I don't know for sure. I would tend to disagree. I think it all depends on the person. You're going to hear a lot of opinions here, but I urge you to remain skeptical and just see for yourself. There is a certain Red Horn Kratom that is by far the best I've ever had in my entire life. It is plantation grown.

I would agree that you need to just try them out yourself, there are a few things to consider first off that every strain affects people in different ways depending on your body composition, metabolites, and MANY other factors. The other thing you need to consider, people who usually market their kratom as "Lab Tested" and highest alkaloid content is usually a sham. Kratom is naturally grown, and that being said the alkaloid content from one part of the plant, will easily differ from another, lets say you buy a 4oz package, the alkaloids will not be consistent throughout the entire package because the product is not made in a laboratory, you cant just manipulate the plant to have the same amount of alkaloids throughout it.

My suggestion would be buy about 1-2oz of each strain you want to try and see which one fits you best. And purchase from multiple vendors as well until you find one that fits.

Yes, plantation seems to have the hardiest plants and healthiest color plants. I think a lot of quality is the harvest time. The rainy season seems to produce a lower alkaloid content, than the rest of the year. It seems like this is most significant with the reds. However, there are some amazing wild trees in the Kapuas Hulu that could give any plantation MD a run for it's money.

It also seems the larger leaves in the super varieties seem to test higher. You are definitely right though everything varies from producer and the equipment/techniques they use for processing.
