Hello. I'm super excited to be part of this group. I have been using krantom for a few years now. I mostly use to help me sleep and relax. I found this group while looking for a new vendor. I love my current vendor MoodAndMind.com. Their quality and customer service is amazing, but their prices have gone way up over the last few years. Finding a quality vendor with reasonable prices has been much more challenging that I had anticipated. I was so thankful to find all the information on this site and read about everyone's experiences and preferences. I plan to make a purchase this weekend and will provide feedback once the transaction is complete. Anyway I just wanted to say hi and thanks!

Thanks again!
Stan

Welcome...super nice to have you here.

Since you have lots of experience using Kratom for sleep and relaxation I would love to learn what strains you recommend for this.

Hi Bev,
Thank for the welcome. Most of my experience so far has been with red and green strains. I would love to get some white to at least try it. I typically buy in bulk so over the last few years I have only made a handful of purchases. My first venture into kratom was bali (green). I wasn't sure what to expect, but became a believer after my very first dose. It calmed my nerves, soothed my mind and gave me an overall feeling of well being. I didn't know much about strains at the time so I just continued to order bali a few more times. Then my vendor had a red, white and blue sale for 4th of July. All reds and whites were on sale as well as a Thai enhanced with blue lotus extract. I ended up going with red sumatra and the one with blue lotus extract. The red sumatra was very effective at helping me drift off to sleep. The blue gave me very vivid mental images while drifting off. I enjoyed both very much, but ended up going back to bali for my next purchase (because of price I believe). I am just now getting up to speed on all of the different strains available and plan to broaden my range over the coming years. Sorry I wasn't more helpful at answering your questions. From what I have read online, the red strains seem to have the most sedative effect, but typically don't last as long. I have heard some mention that red/green mix gives the best of both. I hope this was a least somewhat helpful.

Kind regards,
Stan

WELCOME TO THE BEST KRATOM FORUM EVAH, stanleywa!

Your input is already appreciated!

I haven't used mood&mind since 2016 when the DEA ban threat occurred and the owner of mood&mind pm'd me HERE to ask me to remove positive feedback I had written about an order. Paul, I think, said they were "going in another direction and wanted to keep their noses clean". So I did remove it, and I assumed they don't even SELL kratom anymore! So that's interesting news! I really like their range of products. But I don't expect their support when times get challenging!

I CANNOT WAIT to hear what you decided to get and from whom, and mostly, what you think of your new order!

Very nice to have you here!
Laurie

Thanks for the great welcome. Yes, they do still sell kratom, but do not advertise it and you cannot even view any of their kratom products unless you are logged in to their site. I placed an order with EC Botanicals since they are listed as a preferred vendor and happen to be having a labor day weekend sale. Their prices seem very reasonable. I'll let the group know about my experience once my order arrives.

As Thanks, I went to your profile here and attempted to add karma (meaningless) and I hit MINUS by mistake! I'll fix it after 6 hours have passed. Sorry about that! LOL I just cut my fingernails and my aim is off. Luckily it has no meaning, but would have been fun to ADD karma. Ah well.

With the approved vendor list, you really can't go wrong. I have yet to try Mood and Mind Kratom but I have heard good things about their kratom. I do have their Valerian root and Guarana powder.

Stan...I have found yellow Sumatra from my Canadian vendor to be very good for pain relief and quite sedating. The sedation comes on quite quickly usually within the first hour, so it is good before bed. I find I need at least 4 Gms to get the sedative effect...smaller doses do not seem to do it.

Just starting to try the greens now, but not willing to sacrifice good pain relief in order to try out something that MIGHT not work.

If you try some white start LOW and go slow...they are very energizing and can make some people like me jittery.
