InSense/ Gold leaf

Explaining the difference between InSense and GoldLeaf: Both are operated by the same owner, Rob, but the main difference between these two companies is that while the names of the varieties are the same from both companies,
InSense is plantation grown, meaning cultivated.. farmed.
GoldLeaf is wild harvested from the rich jungles that they naturally have grown in for eons!! I tell you this .. there is a difference between them. The alkaloid profiles while similar in effects, offer a different benefits and strengths.
Some folks say good kratom is all the same , I beg to differ!! Good kratom is good kratom but the difference in experience felt between cultivated and wild harvested are pretty distinct... Plantation versions may sing better to you, or the wild kratom may sing best ... only one way to find out what’s best for your chemistry!!!! (L) Enjoy !!

I have a decent tolerance due to daily regimen with kratom, helps me tremendously with chronic pain from a spinal degenerative disease... kratom has truly given me quality of life, I’m beyond grateful for vendors like InSense/ GoldLeaf going above and beyond to ensure we have pure , safe and potent quality kratom!! All of the “strains” I tried were of good potency... the benefits I experienced lasted pretty long considering my tolerance and most likely be stronger for those who take kratom less frequently than I do !! Thank you Rob, I sincerely appreciate what you do and I have big gratitude for you and the others vendors that never take short cuts, making sure that integrity is unmistakable...every step of the way !!

(InSense)White Hulu (L)
Pleasant smell, soft bite of bitterness... mixed with GFJ barely noticeable !! Clean crystalline energy, with generous amount of warm moodlift....this is a white that has some decent pain relieving qualities .... 3 hrs strong which is amazing for a white strain, but 4 before I wanted to redose!! I’ve read a lot of positive comments from customers and now I know why... this is an exceptional white strain... noteworthy and a Sure Bet!!!

(GoldLeaf)White Hulu (L)
Very strong, good burning energy… a little faster than the plantation variety.... slightly less pain relief , but really good mood lift and long duration, this is the kind of Kratom that decompresses your tension, gives you a sense of calm all the while keeping your focus !!
Nice strain, big understatement!!

(InSense) Red Bali (L)
That musty red powder flavor ..
I took a bit more than my usual amount.. ( seems like a good thing to do with reds...)
Very happy and relaxed,nice moodlift, excellent pain relief...relaxing but not sedating , ... one of the best red Bali’s I’ve tried so far ..
Awesome to take in the second half of the day cause the relaxation overpowers the underlying energy, Great on its own or possibly blended with a green or white for a earlier
Good mix of being alert but super relaxed ... def my favorite red Bali I’ve tried !!!

Red Bali (GoldLeaf) (L)
That same but slightly different red flavor ( compared to InSense)
Im impressed with the energy , more energetic than not, but with a calming contentment !! Warm pain relief with very nice moodlift ... Good for anytime of the day when desiring relief from pain with no sedation, great relaxation with energy to keep on going .... Aside from the good pain relief and non sedating energy, the moodlift was impressive!! Solid 3-3.5 hrs duration.


Super Green Malay
(InSense ) (L)
Super bitter nicely ground powder ..level energy.... Good legs..3.5hrs
2nd dose the following day lasted 5 hrs, was a happy 5 hrs while playing with the kids and feeling great in my body... this is a stellar strain.
Moodlift..? Above average
Pain relief..? Moderate
Energy..?? Darn fine and conducive to having fun while getting work done !!

Super Green Malay
(GoldLeaf) (L)
A lot less bitter then it’s InSense cousin and a bit more relaxing versus moodlift and energy. Pretty good legs , 3 hrs solid ...approx 4 hrs total...
Moderate pain relief , leaning toward more relaxation than stimulation, moderate moodlift. Great afternoon or evening variety .... for unwinding and easing into the evening.... mixing with either InSense/ GoldLeaf white Hulu, makes a good balanced morning dose.


(InSense ) Premium MD (L)
Lovely smell, noticeably more bitter than the GoldLeaf version ... wonderful up beat but grounding energy... long lasting 3 hrs strong.... 4rs total...
good pain relief , moderate moodlift.... a mid level energy that hits a plateau and stays there for a LONG TIME!! A great kratom choice for midday use or when desiring more of a balanced Kratom experience.

(GoldLeaf) PREMIUM MD (L)
Less bitter than InSense sister , great grind, good earthy Kratom smell...
Not as strong as plantation, a bit shorter legged.. 2.5 -3 hrs ... mellow energy, well rounded like it’s plantation counterpart.... nicely balanced pain relief , moodlift and smooth energy. A little booster dose brought me back to the zone of balanced energy and moodlift. Another great afternoon strain or when looking for middle of road spectrum, not to relaxing , not to stimulating.... a well rounded variety.!!

Fuzzydragon InSense (L)
Tastes like red vein, mildly bitter, nice fine grind !
The effects I got from the fuzzydragon blend were mellow, with mild but solid relaxation. I’m assuming this is a mostly or all red blend from the taste and the results. This would be great for folks wanting to shift down for bedtime and to get cozy and comfortable with the subtlety powerful and powerfully subtle effects. I had heavy eyelids from my dose, then hopped in the bath.... nighty night ! Didnt have the longest legs but if your taking solely to sleep... you’ll be sleeping before it wares off ...2.5 -3 hr approx... nice variety ..!!

Fuzzy Dragon (GoldLeaf) (L)
Bitter but not overpowering , nice grind,
30-40 minuets after taking this variety, the effects I felt were light , relaxed and slightly energized... playful even.. . and yes .. fuzzy !!! All day my body was hurting , and no matter the type of kratom I used ... pain was back sooner than I’d like ... I’m grateful that the fuzzy dragon delivered thorough pain relief! Really enjoyed the relief ...my favorite version of this variety

Golden Benulu( InSense )(L)
Lovely powder, fine grind, great smell , smooth barely bitter taste… 30 minutes after dosing I started to feel very relaxed and … Happy! This is a great evening strain that will soothe most if not all your aches and pains, leaving a big fat smile on your face! This is a gold of noteworthiness. There’s a good undertone of energy with this unique “strain”.... really caught my attention as a solid powder when needing pain relief without sedation. Very nice moodlift as well... lovely powder!

Gold Benulu( GoldLeaf) (L)
Very similar to the InSense version, mild pleasant taste ( smooth and lacking bitterness ) warm and relaxing, with more energy mixed in with the relaxation.... happy , warm with good pain relieving effects.
I love both versions , they are only slightly different in the energetic department, can’t go wrong with either one , I’d like to have both on hand , very stoked with this “strain”!!

Red Hulu (GoldLeaf) (L)
I was exhausted when i first tried this ... the effects I felt were very sedating ... strong in relaxation/ sedation with moderate moodlift and soothing pain relief . I feel this variety is best suited towards the end of the day when you can fully enjoy the effects after a long day , or when needing to close your eyes with a full body reprieve from aches and pain ...
The following day I had similar experience, though less sedating and with increased moodlift.


Red Hulu (InSense) (L)
Good grind , mellow taste
Great moodlift( exceptional moodlift!!!!) , happy energy , not sedating, lending to calm and relaxed vibe...this is a stand out variety and very noteworthy... Happy kratom !! Lasted about 3.5 hrs for me. Good day time “strain”.

Kratom/ Shilajit/ Iporuru Blend

Nice combo of herbs , tastes pretty good mixed with my grapefruit juice. 10 minuets after taking , the moodlifting pain relief was there. About 3 hrs duration. Always wanted to try shilajit , and was curious about the Iporuru ... a herb from Brazil ... and the shilajit , a high mineral resin that seeps out of the earth in parts of the world .. A great example of synergistic herbs making each ones potential shine bright . Nice pain relief, some good moodlift and a good short boost of energy , very cool blend. Recommend folks try this ...!!!

brandon, GOT YA!!! you got fomo too.. what a great company huh? their 'other botanicals' are some of the most reasonable prices. you might find cheaper, but the quality or concentration might be as good. skullcap is stellar as well. love the kx as well! that's the strain that inspired me to take shilajit daily. since its a natural electrolyte I took a bit more in the summer.

with our discount a 100 g bag is less than 20 bucks. I buy most of my botanicals from them so its easy to throw in a bit of leaf.. just got some gold MD..love all their golds..green hulu is a jem as well..gold leafs dark red MD is stellar..i can go on and on.. glad you enjoy them!

The InSense Red Dragon and Gold MD might be worth your time to review if/when you order again.

Their Red Dragon is a blend, and imo it has something for everyone.

The Red Ketapang I tried was also interesting.

I agree with you on the Gold Leaf Red Hulu, it's potent, and nice.

I'd just brought the In Sense line back in my rotation a few days ago, before today's break. The Gold Leaf Red Hulu was a small free sample they included with my order, and has been used up.
