This thread is dedicated to the sure thing.
Name your favorite Strains from your favorite Vendors. Ones that you don't hesitate to recommend. And that you've bought recently.

For me it's
Herbal Salvation → Not Forum Approved
1. Yellow Vietnam
2. Thai MD
3. Red Vietnam
4. Probably any Vietnam

In the pricy section
Plantation MD and Maha Kali Red Vein

I should mention that I ordered a sampler pack and I was underwhelmed. Based on some recommendations in the forums I became selective and tried the ones not available in sampler and they were very good. I think he puts his commercial grade in the sampler and makes you spend more to buy the individual strains

I have become hesitant to recommend a sure thing. On the basis that I have some Kratom from 4 months ago and go back to order the same strain and its not the same. Not bad necessarily just not the stud I remember.
Factors are - search any post from Joe from Re-leaf LLC for the lengthy explanation- to growing seasons.
Only some Kratom though.

I will list my go tos that I have the best luck with.

Old School Re-leaf-(actually most of their Reds are top notch)
Red Kindra, Red Smile
Green sundra, Green Kali

Insense-
Red Hulu
Green thai

Goldleaf
Red Papua
Green Raiu

Pa botancials-
Green Borneo
Green Cambodian
Yellow Borneo

Inland-
Red Hulu

Total Kratom-
Red Maeng Da

Above are my current rotations plus A red sample fro PDO- I think its hulu

I have a Pink Bali from a vendor no more. KRK-Naturals
Socal Herbal always their Green Zareena is a favorite no matter when I buy it, not always available

Well I made a purchase from Herbal-RVA (Not a ILK approved vendor) they've been around a long time.

No marketing to speak of. They just post the pictures and the names. No user reviews. To get in you have to type "Speciosa" in the search bar.

Any way in July 2017 I ordered Bali Gold and it was excellent. Decided that I was in the mood to go slumming it. They have a 4 way split Kilo deal for $70.00 + shipping which came out to $79.00kg.

I got the Bali Gold again and even though the batch is more recent it was just as good as the original. So it's a sure thing. Even though I didn't get much sleep today. It has me feeling very good and alert.

The other one that I re-ordered is the Premium MD. But I haven't had an opportunity to try the new batch. Once I have it I'll come back and rate it as a sure thing.

So I bought
Bali Gold - A sure Thing
White MD
Gold MD
Premium MD.
I'll be back to rate them

Gold Leaf Botanicals AKA In Sense sold me White Hulu and Green Hulu.

The White Hulu is a sure thing for those who like Whites and the green is a sure thing for those who like Greens.

The white is really energizing and the Green has that classical feel like normal just super normal with clarity feeling.

This is one of my favorites from HRV but I thought the latest batch was more sedative, I need to try it again at a lower dose to see if it comes closer to the energetic gold I had before. They have a super pain relieving Royal Bentuangie my husband likes the relaxing properties, I tend to not like when reds bring out a full on sedation, I liked happy relaxed, not cocooned hibernating bear. I am going to play with lowering the dose because I cannot deny that it can tackle tough to mange pain like nerve pain.

I have a white thai sample from Insense, anyone have experience with this strain?

I've been slowly putting together my review of the strains I have tried so I'll give a mini review since Nan is asking about the white thai.

The white thai from in sense is one that I have listed on my spreadsheet as not making me spacey, giving energy, and having good body pain relief. It is one of the few rated as a buy again.

Both the white ketapang and white maeng da made me spacey.
I got some body pain relief from the ketapang but got good body pain relief from the maeng da.

All of them did give excellent headache relief.
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. ;)

Hi Michelle,
I don't take notes but what happened is that I quit Kratom for around a year and when I got back I identified all the MFG. I made the Bali Gold into Capsules and thought that it was exceptional. So it stuck in my mind.

Unfortunately it can be hit and miss from H-RVA I ordered Yellow Maeng Da and finally got to use it the other day. Made 200 Caps. Took 7g or so and it was bunk. Did just about nothing. I'm going to have to try it again just to be sure.

I really like their 4 way split Kilo deal for $79.00 delivered. 250g is the maximum that I ever want to order of any Kratom so I can keep rotating the strains. Most vendors really pound you on split KG.

The Thai MD was a really energizing Kratom,I'm hoping the new batch will be equivalent.
