So well searching the web and getting more nervous about buying more bunk wholesale overseas I happened to find out there was a guy near me with 3 brick and mortor locations. I called him at 9 am where he was extremely nice, and well educated. After telling me what I thought was $120 (it was higher) for a kg I made a plan to stop in.

I visited his Saratoga Springs location where I was greeted kindly and informed him who I was. He immediately asked me my juice of choice, or asked if I wanted it in a slush puppy (brilliant idea!). He stirred me up what appeared to be 4-5g of his white vein kratom and made me a delicious drink. (also runs an oxygen bar and hookah shop in this location)

I have found almost every Kratom I have tried unbareable in flavor no matter the mix so lately Ive tried kratomkaps, Gaia caps, OPMS, Gold label, choice botanicals etc. I was honestly beginning to call it a day with kratom for a bit due to mixed effects.

Anyways as I drank my drink he informed me he actually owns an 18 acre farm in Indonesia which then made me realize that makes his price quite high, but then again Saratoga is super expensive. He explained more to me about kratom than even my extensive, exhaustive research has dug up in the past 6 months alone. Within 10 minutes I felt much happier, super focused, and motivated. The pain relieving qualities were insanely good, (I have 7 herniated discs, early onset RA, and psoriatic arthritis, liver disease etc even high doses of western meds dont help) and only what I can describe as an overall feeling of health and vigor.

So I purchsed a KG of the white and as reds have been my favorite, aquired 8 oz of his red. (he was out of any green strains in bulk-also like how he stores his smaller doses of kratom in sealed twist top clear jars)

Upon full onset I felt light years better than I have in quite some time. The gf and I went to a resturaunt with one of my sons and had a great meal so that may have affected its ability to perform even better than it did. So I am keeping that in mind for my next dose of white.

5 hours later the benefits of this wonderful and helpful plant had began to quietly subside, and as it was 1130 pm est. I could have comfortably went to bed but this weather is killing my joints so I decided I would mix 1 g of Gold Label green with 1 g of the red 3 hours post eating. Once again within 20 minutes I felt a similar feeling with the slight blahness I get from the gold label brand (light anxiety if I stop moving) however 2 hours in Im back to a comfortable base and ready for bed.

So in summation I would rate his white a perfect 10 for 10 in quality, 7 of 10 in price (less if you consider he owns the farm!) customer service an outstanding 10 for 10 giving out his personal # and he does offer free shipping. Overall Id say the white/company is a 9 for 10. (price being the only downfall but for this quality - no brainer) I will follow up tomorrow with a red review.

Also I am not sure how he would want his name reviewed as his Kratom business is different than his store fronts name. So I am not posting his name but will gladly respond to anyones PM interested in trying his brand. I have been looking for a wholesaler for my business, and while his prices are high for a wholesaler he is well loved and respected in the local community, and the quality is superb - so I will be carrying his at my brick and mortor. 95% of the customers were there for a kratom drink. One couple sat down with 3 glasses of kratom drinks (their max per person while in store) and they walked out with an 8 oz jar of the white since they switched to red this evening. Also he gives away stems for free and does not grind them into his powder, so that speaks volumes for his purity, its all organic, and he still is a regular user/test (we all drank together including his employees) and sends each harvest out for testing to make sure his farmers are staying true to his mission statement.

Thanks for reading,

Also an update, as I expected the guy running the register didnt know I was supposed to get it at wholesale so I was overcharged. The owner and I were too busy talking for either to notice. So I dont have to drive an hour back there he is sending me 2, half pound jars today so hopefully I will have those tomorrow. He also gave me a 30.00 credit for next order on top of it (the amount his guy overcharged me on accident). So in essence on top of the 8 oz free, he is giving me another pound and 30.00 credit.

I still plan to try other places but to be honest I cant see being more satisfied. Also just took 4 grams of the red to start my day so Ill add that much shorter review in a bit.

Just realized I never posted the red review.

This has turned out to be my favorite thus far. I tend to blend the white and red, but the red is very relaxing, and helps me sleep pain free. I too would give this a 10/10 for what I have tried from other companies. (Ive tried 30 companies now) I just got a small order from kratomonline today though so I will be switching it up tonight.

Have you tried Milk and honey, milk believe it or not acts as an anti bitter layer that coats your stomach and honey neutralizes the bitterness along with one spoonful of sugar.

All those KRatom users who boil or simmer water in cooking pot for 20-30min baffel me. I happen to think Mitragynine's and 7-OHM's melting point is lower than 300 degrees Fahrenheit. you would think most of the active alkaloids would be burned up in that process or at least some of it surly.

but not us we take them powders and get all of them mitragynines metabolized and through the blood stream off to the neuron wall, cns and gi tract crosshairs zoomed in on mu-opioid,kappa-opioid and delta opioid receptors and the 3/6 ethers.

I know my humor isn't funny. anyways

you probably have tried it but just letting you know thats how ive taken Kratom for over 10 years.
I put KRatom powder in bottom of glass, pour milk on top, add One spoon full of sugar to help the Kratom go down(at risk of sounding like a merry poppins song) and honey if necessary.
hope it helps. my bro just parachutes his, uses a coffee filter that is designed to dissolve in water and twist ties it and chases with water or juices like Grapefruit/Orange juice ruby red ect.

Honestly, I have found I have gotten used to the taste since moving to this vendor and a few others. Then again I have been using a cranberry pomegranite juice which is quite strong in and of itself flavor wise. The fruits bitterness matches the kratom nicely.

Also in the morning I have been making my body detox smoothies. 3 1/2 cups of wild berry and kale frozen fruit, 3 cups french vanilla almost milk, 2 inches of fresh ginger, chia seeds, 1 cup OJ, milk thistle, 2 tbsp honey, dash of cayenne pepper, 1 whole banana, 3 whole peppercorns, (i think you get the idea, a hodge podge of healthy stuff) The smoothie by itself tastes like an orange julius. But with my first of 5 glasses I mix in 3 grams of white, 1 g red in the AM, and my final glass around evening I mix 3 grams red 1 white. Makes it more bitter but not bad.

I have come to associate the taste of quality kratom with relief. I think that makes it more bareable.

If you sprinkle the powder on top of water and let it sit, it will dissolve within about ten minutes.

I find it is much easier to take that way as there are no dry parts.

Is there an alternative to a public post that doesn't involving PMing since that is apparently down? I too would be interested in a vendor in this area. Regardless, great post.
