I have plenty of Wild Kratom that I consider Commodity Kratom with lower Mitr Count.

I recently bought Plantation Kratom at a slight premium represented to have a higher Mitr level (1.6 -1.8). I was thinking of mixing the Plantation with Wild lower Potency Kratom to get the benefit of a wider Alkaloid Profile.

I was curious if anyone else has been doing this.

:-?
I never thought of doing this. The best you achieve a wider alkaloid profile and this will help with tolerance issues? I would just go with stem and vein personally but to find a way to make your kratom more useful its worth it. Let us know your result.

Although I benefit from the Mitragynine levels I am not so sure I gain the most benefits from that alkaloid.

Hi Kraterimg,

Hope you’re well. “Commodity kratom” lol

First to answer your question, I’ve never mixed the two.

Higher Mit content doesn’t necessarily mean the kratom is better. I’ve personally had kratom that tested at 3.8 Mit from PDO.

What makes each strain different is the unique alkaloid profile and the different levels of the alkaloids. The benefits come from having a wide variety of different alkaloids that work together and provide a unique profile.

However, when we order the same strain from same vendor it’s never going to have the exact same composition of alkaloids. There’s just too many factors involved and most can’t be controlled.

I think it would be beneficial & interesting to mix the 2 at least some of each but not all. Then you can compare the mixture and it’s effects to both the wild kratom or as you called it “Commodity Kratom”. That makes me laugh, and to the plantation.

I’m curious why you believe that wild grown kratom has a lower percentage of Mit? Since you’ve paid more for plantation grown I’m assuming that’s why you think it’s higher quality.....Unless of course you’ve tested it. I bet you don’t automatically think kratom that’s more expensive must be better. You don’t always get what you pay for.

Wild grown kratom is known to have higher Mit percentage vs. plantation grown. There are various factors that create a higher concentration of Mit in wild’s. Usually the trees are much more mature. Not all vendors have access to wild grown kratom. Now that kratom is so popular in the West more plantations are being formed. So these plantations are going to have much younger trees and they are often grown in a different soil composition than they grow in the wild.

I prefer wild grown kratom and I’d personally never spend more money for plantation grown. Not all vendors charge more for plantation. PDO is an example of a vendor who doesn’t charge more for plantation grown and I totally respect that.

I believe that some vendors who charge a premium for plantation grown are just trying to make more money. It’s a great marketing strategy that works.. When customers see that it’s more expensive than the same strain that’s not labeled “Plantation grown” most assume that it must be better or higher in Mit than the regular strain.and many customers pay the extra money.
Also j/s how would you know if it’s actually any different from the same strain not labeled? A vendor could just claim they’re different when in fact, they could be the same. That’s why it’s so important for vendors to be vetted. To deal with vendors you trust. I prefer smaller family run companies.

If you think about it, it probably costs a vendor more for wild kratom. I’m just thinking logically. Not all vendors have access to wild kratom. Idk but the vendor might have to pay for that privilege. Getting to these remote areas to harvest the wild kratom would be much more difficult than harvesting on a plantation so it makes sense that it would cost more. Idk it’s just something that came to me.

I hope you understand where I’m coming from and I mean no disrespect at all. I was just passing on info and offering my opinion on why I believe SOME vendors charge more for plantation. Food for Thought.

Plz update us on your results and how each of the 3 strains/blends measured up.
