Yellow Sumatra has become a favourite for me. Very calming and surprisingly good pain relief.
I also find that it can be sedating at the end of the burn with higher doses (4-5Gm).

I was quite surprised as I take Kratom for pain relief and was sticking mostly to reds but this one worked for me and is now in my rotation.

I often blend it with a red.

One negative....it makes me gassy! :blush::blush: the yellows are fermented and I find they make me quite gassy. this can make for an interesting yoga practise so I seldom use it in advance of yoga or if I am going out!

I have only tried a few yellows. Yellow Horn from Ohio Botanicals- Not much from this strain on its own. Does blend well with other strains. Yellow MD- It was from this Psychologist that use to be a kratom vendor but she stopped selling kratom during the ban scare last year. It was more on the energetic side. Yellow Gold from LFK. Another uplifting strain with decent pain relief. Yellow Vietnam from COB. Perhaps my favorite yellow. It gives me a relaxed energy. A good strain for either working out or talking to customers or patients.

I love a good yellow/red mix any early day! But I wonder about the gas issue. I'll have to test that out as a precautionary measure! LOL NO kidding! LOL

I wonder if the Yellow Sumatra (Sleepy Hippo) from Happy Hippo is dried with Cat's claw tea. I know Joe mentioned if a yellow strain is relaxing, chances are that it is dried with cat's claw. Or one vendor said that yellow's are dried white strains with reds. That could be the case with happy hippo. On paper it would seem that yellow strains would be just under whites in terms of uplifting or energetic qualities.

I love the yellow strains MIXED with red and/or greens. My metabolism gets a nice bit of energizing-less edgy than a white.

I am not as particular with regard to Country of Origin in the name. For the most part, greens are green benefits, reds are red benefits, etc. For whatever reason, the Country of Origin or other names given to strains don't make a huge difference for me. Color of leaf (on label, not the powder itself), and size of burn is more of a factor about specific results I'm seeking to achieve (and mostly accomplishing) as opposed to Kapuas versus Sumatra (for example).

I currently am enjoying some Yellow Bali from Britta of Hawksbill Botanicals, a yellow Maeng Da from Dwi (KratomAsia) and I'm out of a tiny bit of yellow something mixed with red (house blend mix) from Joe at Re-Leaf LLC (Joe labeled mine with MY NAME: custom labeling is a fun touch!)

As was mentioned by Gmantheman, yellows are great for mixing ("plays well with others" lol)

I have never had a sedating burn with yellows. I have my own cat's claw to mix it with, but the point of enjoying a yellow is generally NOT A NAP for me, anyway.

What is the purpose of taking the Cat's Claw with Kratom?

Is it to reduce inflammation?
