Just ordered green Jong Kong from Hudson Valley. Very excited! This is my all time favorite and it is hard to find! Has anyone tried it from them or have words for HV? Thanks!

Shemme,
I've never tried Jong Kong at all but I won some krotom from HVB-Garuda and here is my mini review of the 2 strains I got from them.

Here are my mini reviews of them.

White MD - very fine lite green powder that smelled and tasted good. Have not detected any grit in it at all. It worked excellent at a 1g dose for taking away a level 5 headache that I had. It reminded me of the Infinity Ultra White Maeng Da from Laughing Lion, although the LL version had a very slight amount of grit. Visually, by taste, by smell, and by effects I could not tell them apart. Both gave very good clarity and good hand pain relief.
This one is a keeper for me as the LL version is. :-bd

Wild Yellow - this also is very fine powder which smelled and tasted good but is much more bitter than the greens and whites I am used to. It also did not have any noticeable grit in it, but I don't know if that is because I am taking from the top of a 500g bag. Maybe nearer the bottom there will be grit?
At 1g this started by making me mellow in about 45 minutes. But by 90 minutes in I was ready to sleep. I could barely keep my eyes open. Fought to stay awake for another 2 hours and by then was back to a mellow and tired state. It had good pain reduction and did seem to help with a headache I started to get just before I took it. Took another 0.5g at bedtime and slept through the night without any problem. For me this is very similar to some of the butt kicking reds that I have had from Insense. Not really my cup of tea.
Maybe I can try mixing it with something that has caused me to be jittery. Maybe the blend would be better.
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. ;)

Thank you for the info Iiggermanscrat¡ Good to know. I'm going to assume they keep quality Kratom since they are an approved vendor. I am always looking for mood lift and energy,...but not too much due to anxiety and clinical depression,

Hudson Valley is a top tier outfit that tests their product.

I've gotten two products from them, Green Hulu, and Super MD (Green Maeng Da). I'm very satisfied with both. The Green Hulu lives up to the Hulu reputation for giving a mood boost, while having a good amount of the other qualities associated with a Green Kratom. The Super MD is a top notch example of Maeng Da.

Shemme,

You continue to inspire me. I appreciate your struggles on such a personal level.

I have a wonderful “Wild Green” from Scott at Garuda/HudsonValley and I’m also pleased with their Red Sunda from recent batches.

There is good reason to expect quality. Getting a metabolism match is another story - ha!

I’m feeling better today than yesterday and I hope you are able to say the same.
Laurie
