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.

Anyone else felt like this. One vendor all his strains make you happy from mood lift, but not much energy, another vendors kratom is hell on wheels with energy, and another vendors everything is quite sedating. As in the colors not really making the effects that's suppose to be known for making. Reds can give you energy, and whites can even sedate you.

I feel this. Sometimes and perhaps a lot of times the strain may be mislabeled. The farmer may claim a strain is red thai and it may be a green sumatra. Also batches will vary. One batch of a strain from a vendor may be lackluster and the next batch may be the near perfect strain.

I once ent back to a Vendor's site to order a strain they had sent as a sample BUT I could not find it on their website.

After contancting them it turned out that they has never ever the strain I was looking for and the sample package they sent was, in fact, MISLABELED...so yes, mislabeling can occur.

yeah I'm sure that happens or it could just be my body chemistry and the moment. I'm starting to notice my kratom is all starting to smell and taste like berntungia. Shouldn't be a storage issue so started putting them in mason jars like you said and they're stored in cold dark places

I have to say no with the exception of so so vendor= Gaia-have no idea if they are really on the up and up..

If the Vendor is a stickler with its sourcing and they try out their own Kratom first and they label the Kratom accordingly.

I notice that Red Borneos. Bali, Bentuangies are what I expect to feel. Greens and White too.
These are my Vendors Re-Leaf , Pa. Botanicals, KratomInsense, Canopy. (also Socal, HRV Herbal)

Example- Red Borneo is mildly sedating, great for pain and a nice soothing mood lift=all my vendors I get the same results. Bentaungie is more sedating and all my vendors I get a more sedating effect.
All the greens I take I feel are true greens and I get benefits that are different from Reds.
Most Whites I know right away I have taken a white strain.

I take note on all of my strains. I am really happy with my Vendors and using my notes to treat myself daily.

I have felt 0 strains out of a kilo and a half from herbal rva. Not one with effects. Re leaf' s product is very different, but tend to be more sedating despite what kind. He doesn't like to discuss effects. I took one of his greens that almost knocked me out
COB has a pretty even moodlift to energy ratio. I've only tried one of canopy. I've been wanting to to Gaia and more of canopy, but the prices are so low I don't want it to be low alkaloid content like herbal rva
