gold leaf/ in sense is one of my all time favorite vendors. this is no dispute.

I had the opportunity to try both red sumatras back to back. I am pleased to say this is the strain that broke my month long kratom reset. just to be clear, some would say almost anything would 'work' for me. but I feel starting again at a newbie dose makes me feel more of the attributes of each strain. I have taken this strain at higher doses and had different results. more sedating. but that was not the case this go around at smaller doses.


gold leaf red Sumatra ( wild )

this gave me a touch of energy at first. great mood enhancement. great pain relief. turned into about 2 solid hours of a mellow calmness. chillaxing. this in turn morphed into a lackadaisical curling up on the couch. then soon to bed!

in sense red Sumatra ( plantation )

started with a nice uplifting mellow energy. ready to create. get something done. if you are a person that appreciates the arts now would be a good time to paint, write, appreciate poetry or art. articulate your version on quantum physics. or do what you do. I baked a cake lol...

gave excellent pain relief, good mood enhancement, and for the first 3 hrs or so gave me a subtle energy. so much so ill mix it with a touch of white as a daytime strain.

the plantation red Sumatra after that 3hr mark turned me a little loopy. like had a little too much red wine to drink. but I didn't. don't get me wrong, I drink on rare occasion. but this night was not one of them! gave me a sedated relaxation that turned into a great nights sleep.

their 'other herbals' are some of the best concentrates for the price that ive ever had.

thank you rob and those at in sense/ gold leaf. ( and especially you too insense3! ) your organic products are always consistently great quality, good prices, AND amazing caring service! you will always hold a special place in your hearts here. the fact that you are always adapting and thinking on your feet makes you a keeper! :x

Good for you Michele on your full reset! You are an exemple of kratom well managed.

So i guess you started working again. IIRC you are working on your feet all day.. you're a chef right?

Im really looking forward to try insense/gold leaf kratom and their herbals. I will get skullcap from them as you said it was helping you. Sleep onset is a big issue for me

Greetings from canada :)

thank you max.

everyone does what they need to do and whats best for them. im working in spurts. 10 hrs one week, 20 hrs another, none another! enough for insurance and stuff so its all good. yes chef by trade.

not taking as often, but when I do its a strain for a review. 'new to me'

you will love their products. and now you can choose between 3 strain or 5 strain sampler! don't forget they have $89 kilos too. one strain. they don't bait and switch either! if you find a strain you like it will be the same quality.

skullcap is awesome. I alternate it with corydalis.

Petunia, >:D :x
Congratulations on your reset. :-bd

Almost a full month. I can't imagine even trying to voluntarily do that. (but I'm a wimp) :woohoo:

I did have a forced reset for 2.5 days though. I had to go up to Rhode Island for a funeral and since it is illegal there I was kratom free. :(
It wasn't long enough to show any kind of withdrawal symptoms but it did again show me just how much pain it relieves. :cheer:
2-3 hours on a plane is torture on my hip and leg without the kratom. The IS could only make it barely tolerable. I was taking 1.5g to 2g of the corydalis at night and the same of the IS during the day while there. I was very glad to have at least that for pain. :)
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. ;)

Wow michele373 !!

Thank you for your kind words. Many don't have any idea of what it takes to provide good consistency.

Good Kratom all/most of the time.

Everyone gets a type or two that doesn't quite do it. But thats rare for us, which is what allows us to provide a Satisfaction Guarantee for our products.

It took us a long time and a bit of money to find a supplier we were happy with....all the time. Someone who put their products and their quality above many others. We finally found one we were happy with, that met our testing and was in fact above the rest.
Many suppliers want to make the quick buck by adding stem and vein to their Kratom because it weighs more than just plain leaf and for us its very evident.

We pay a bit more than some because we want Good LEAF.....all the time. :woohoo:

Reviews like this help us keep our prices as affordable as we can, i mean.....what good does it do if no one can afford it.

Thank you michele373, for your words of experience with our Red Sumatra, right after your clean break, which is one of the ways we get to experience all of the minor and sometimes subtle differences that make this strain what it is....:-bd

one of those hidden secrets for many.....and for some, it may not be quite right....

BUT.... for others like you michele373, its a nice little gem thats sometimes needed to get away from the normal stuff.

and we are very happy with your explanation of our other Botanicals. >:D

Your valued opinion counts around here, especially for those that are still looking.

Thank You Everyone....somethingsacredgoingonhere and tiggermanscrat, our Canadian friend and of course....michelle373....
all your experience is useful in helping others..... =D>
....which is why we are here!

Thanks for being a part of today's alternative Solution.
