What should I expect. Its white md from gaia. I have bad anxiety, will the white increase my anxiety? Do the white veins produce that warm euphoric feeling? Thanks

While Gaia is not an APPROVED VENDOR on this website, generally white vein is comparable to an amazing cup of espresso (it is related to the coffee plant, not opium plant) and a happy mood. If it’s good quality. Gaia is a huge distributor in the market and well known for mid-range quality leaf.

White vein is the last leaf I would recommend for someone with anxiety. But, if it’s mid level quality, you might not get overly anxious. So you might really enjoy it.

We will wait for you to tell us how you like it. For future reference, please post UNAPPROVED VENDOR discussion in the FIND A VENDOR / RATE A VENDOR section on the forum for ANY and ALL vendor discussion.

Nothing against Gaia or you. Our vendors are required to meet higher standards than many of the middle range vendors are willing to go to become members. Those higher standards are discussed in other areas of the forum.

If you have difficulty accessing that area, please try a tablet or anything larger than a phone to access the full benefits on some areas on this site. Some of the site is still under construction.

Thanks for your consideration and keep us posted on how you like it. I would probably use a tad bit less than your typical red, green or yellow, as it’s easy to add more, but if you have an uncomfortable reaction to the white, it can take only a short while to upwards of about 2-4 hrs to feel fine again.

I have mid range anxiety and I use it on occasion, mixed with green or red and I can enjoy it with no adverse effects. Hopefully that is going to be your experience.

This was my entire Review of Gaia Ethnobotanicals 2 years & 4 months ago just to give you an Idea:

Green Dragon-Similar Effects to Green Malay. Great Strain with Great Euphoria to it. Gives a mood lift with great motivation to it. Comes on very fast in less than 10 minutes. Will make any menial task enjoyable. Also a great relaxer & great for Anxiety. It just melts any Anxiety that I have away. It can also be quite overwhelming with the Stimulation. It also gives you quite a bit of Energy. So it can do it all. A great all around Strain like green malay. A very potent strain for sure. Easily in the top 5 of the best Kratom that I have ever tried in my 7 years. Dragon is going to be one of my Favorites like Malay. Would be Fantastic for Mixing with other Strains. Totall A Day Strain. Almost a perfect Strain but can be overwhelming or over stimulating at times. In my top 3 of all time. 90/100

White Dragon-Excellent Energy & Mood Lift & long lasting effects for a white strain. Definately a day Strain. Onset takes about 15 minutes for me. After about 2 hours goes slighly toward the relaxing side but still has energy to it. Very good for pain relief also. 88/100

Red Dragon-Smooth uplifting, relaxing strain. Comes on very quick in just 5 minutes. Very relaxing euphoric strain. Good for any anxiety or sleeplessness. 88/100

Green Malaysia-In my top 3 of the best Malay I have ever taken. Excellent Mood Lift, Stimulation, Motivation, Relaxation, Euphoria, Focus. Has the complete full range of effects that Kratom has to offer. Awesome Strain. Not too overpowering just right but still potent. Don't have to take much for a dose to get solid effects. Long lasting at 4+ hours. Onset comes on quickly within 10 minutes. I found a dose that will put me right to sleep so this strain is just awesome in terms of the Range of Effects you can get from it. You just have to adjust the Dosage & you can use it for any Situation. One of the Best. 91/100

Bali Gold-Good medium slow strain for relaxing at the end of the day. Not overpowering or too potent at all. Nice smooth mild strain. 15 minutes it takes for any effects & lasts about 3 hours for me. Most of the Gold Or Yellow Strains that I have tried in my 7 Years have been very mild & all have been very relaxing in effects. 75/100

Red Bali-Has a great relaxing euphoric effect to it. Also is excellent for any pain relief or anxiety. Took about 4 grams & it was very potent for me. Onset in about 20 minutes & lasts about 3 hours for me. 88/100

White Maeng Da-Great white strain. Very quick onset & last about 3 hours which is very good. Very nice uplifting, motivating, slightly relaxing sedating strain. 84/100

Red Maeng Da-Great for any pain relief. Took my headache away in just 20 minutes. Works very quickly in under 10 minutes. Has a unique quality to it that I don't see too often with many strains. The effects are just very different from most strains that I have tried. It's just hard to explain. The effects are on the mild side but I can feel them. It's in between energy & relaxing but is very nice & smooth. 85/100

Green Maeng Da-Good for needing any Energy to start the day. Nice powerful energy that lasts about 2 hours. Effects are quick acting & just suddenly stop. 85/100

Ganesh Maeng Da-Very Potent MD. Doesn't take but about 3 - 4 grams for a good powerful dose. Very nice uplifting, energetic euphoric effects. Great morning strain for waking up. Short duration at 2.5 hours. Onset is very quick at just under 10 minutes. 88/100

Elephant-This was kind of a mild or weak strain for me. Started with a very slight relaxation in 15 minutes then moved into strong sedation after 1.5 hours. Lasted 3 hours for me. Great strain for insomnia. Doesn't have much euphoria but still a pretty good strain overall. 70/100

White Borneo-Very good slow Borneo strain. Onset in about 15 minutes. Lasts about 3 hours. Comes on slowly & fades slowly. Is very relaxing & calming. Perfect for going to bed. This Borneo just made me want to take a nap. Nice soothing & strongly sedating strain. Had no stimulation or energy with it. 84/100

Purple 8-in-1-Good solid blend. Has unique uplifting & energetic effects with good pain relief also. Effects start within 15 minutes & last about 3 hours. Good strain for getting work done. Good for needing any energy or endurance for any work or gym workouts. 82/100

Excellent Vendor Overall. They do everything great in my opinion. They have the Best Prices in the US. They have Excellent Quality Kratom that is fresh that has a nice find grind that is easy to swallow. The taste is not bad at all. Excellent Fast shipping, Great Customer Service, Excellent bags for their Kratom that is Labeled very well & seals very good. They have a very good selection of strains to choose from. To get to their Kratom on their site I type in Green, Red or White in the search bar for the color of Strain I want. I would Highly Recommend Gaia to anybody that Loves good Kratom & doesn't like paying a high price for it. This is a very solid Vendor. The only thing that I would say negative is that you could never find their Kratom without searching for it.

Scores:
Quality Of Kratom 8.7/10
Prices 9.7/10
Shipping 9.5/10
Customer Service 9.5/10
Overall Rating 9.1/10

As mentioned elsewhere, Whites MIGHT give you some mood lift. Greens are probably gonna do it more. I have found this to be true, myself. But it took me a while to tell the difference.

For me, Whites do not make me jittery or increase my anxiety.....they help me feel more awake and alert, etc....thought not necessarily mood lifting. Sometimes I add a Yellow to it to help balance that out.

Some people on here say Whites are "too much" for them but....I am not one of those.

Everyone is different so you just have to experiment. It took me a good 6-8 months to really figure out what I was looking for. Once i realized I wasn't supposed to get "high" off of it......it really helped. :P

Gaia two years ago sounds a lot different than how they are when I purchased ... literally like a whole different animal..

Wish I had that experience like you mad max , my first purchase over a year ago was not a disappointment, my following purchases ( only 2 maybe 4 all together ) were disappointing big time so I decided not to order from them again, along with some irritating factors with the owner ... there was such a short and careless response to my questions like he just didnt give £€%t ,

Since I haven’t tried him since I can’t say personally if the company improved but having read other folks reviews here( excluding yours mad max), more disappointments in quality than not,

Best white I’ve tried semi recently was through treasurehosebotanicals, ( because of mad maxes great review ) there most recent batch wasn’t as good as the previous 4, but I know the season variation and just different batches play into that, and however the owner responds fast and doesn’t just make quality statements to sale , the honesty and previous several positive experiences will bring me back again down the road,

I’m interested in another vendor who’s local to my area, I’ll post when I have tried his Kratom, actually I did when I first began my regimen but it’s been a while so I can’t guve a recent example of quality, but I will say that the quality was through the roof, hope it still is , even though my tolerance is somthing to contend with these days

Same for me Philly , green is best for my needs and what I’m looking for , but there have been a few examples of awesomeness with reds and whites, I usually mix them with green for the most part though

My favourite white is a White Horn and it has become a staple in my cupboard.

I do not take it on its own but it works well when combined with a red or even a green. I find it works well for pain reief which is unusual for a white as they are not supposed to have a high concentration of the pain relieving alkaloids.

I do find that other whites can nmake me jittery so I keep the dose low and always combine with a red or green. Usually I never take more than 1 - 1.5 grams of a white when combined with something else (except for my White Horn...I might go higher with that.)

So you can see how experimenting helps you determine how things work BUT like Laurie, I would never recommend a white for anxiety.

Now, all of these things said......here's some irony.

I just received some White Hulu Kapuas from Canopy yesterday and took a dose about 40 min. ago. For me, it actually does provide some anxiety relief. I even looked back in my notes and when I had it last in March and I felt the same effects.

However, as we've already said....don't count on getting good anxiety relief from Whites.
