I have been following a USPS package from Ca. to Phila and then it took a short tour of Eastern Pa for some unknown reason before backtracking to my mailbox, visiting relatives maybe?
I am planning on trying the straight version of InSense's Fuzzy dragon tonight. When I try the Red dragon I will post a separate review of both. These came in the mail today.
I sampled the Enhanced Red Bali from InSense a few months ago this is all going on my Black Friday shopping list and a few blends.

Two more to add to the list of Kratoms that worked for me when I asked, "Will it blend?".

Tuesday had KratomOne's Tri-Force up at the plate as the first Tea of the day, and that in itself is a very neat blend of a White, Green, and Red, Kratoms. I like how on the bag they list which particular version of each is used, and apparently they don't use all of the same ones for their other blends. They all get numbers. Some very well thought out "blendology" is going on here.

So now this very balanced, and all around helpful, blend got mixed in with my usual enhancers to my first serving of the day of Kratom. I use roughly two parts Hirsuta to one part Javanica, with two parts Stem & Vein, for a total of 750 mg., and I add to that just 100 mg. of In Sense Botanicals Ultra Enhanced Fuzzy Dragon.

This worked out very well, imo, as the strong boost that I get from the Mitragynine dominant Ultra Enhanced Fuzzy Dragon didn't "drown out" the good vibes I get from the KratomOne Tri-Force. And with the Hirsuta and Javanica, I had a blend that provided several hours of a strong positive effect, and without that being overbearing. A success, in other words.

Yesterday/Wednesday saw Texas Family Harvest's Wild Red Bali as the experiment in blending. I had some concerns that something would get lost by the resulting combination, but other than the burn not being as restful as it might otherwise have been, it was all good, especially as I was looking for something geared a notch faster than what I expect from this Red Bali.

All in all, I see that burn as the kind of a classic success one can hope for in blending, where by blending you add in benefits, and don't really subtract any.

Today I was happy to see that my patience was rewarded and that a package that the USPS had reported as en route for several days had finally arrived to my mail box. It was none other than Gold Leaf Botanicals Wild Grown Dark Red MD. In Sense Botanicals sells the plantation grown version of Dark Red MD, and going by my experiences with how Gold Leaf's menu of wild grown Kratom can offer intriguing differences in their effects, I was eager to test out if a wild grown Dark Red MD could offer a desirable alternative to its extremely pleasing plantation grown sibling.

Yes, it can. I'm genuinely curious how Gold Leaf Botanicals contracts to get their wild grown Kratom, and what some of the history is to the people who tend, harvest, and process it.

I guess I should eventually post a picture of the bag's contents, as this Kratom has a fantastic look to it. Under the right light this Red suggests a very rich golden red color. It's smell is just short of being floral, very fresh, and it carries a few subtle fragrances to it. The taste matches the smell, and it borders on having some sweetness to it, and it's not bitter at all though it does suggest that it has some seriousness to its body.

It went to work fast, and though because this was a first time demo experience I took just half a gram, I still felt a good amount of energy. But even more gratifying was the boost to mood, and the accompanying soothing away of the anxious feelings that are like a background noise in this modern world of ours.

Pain relief is good, while inflammation relief is as good as anything I've used.

I might not blend this with Ultra Enhanced, as right now I think that they'd be needlessly competing with each other, and the more subtle benefits of each would get homogenized into being irrelevant.

But I will try this Gold Leaf Dark Red MD in a blend with the Hirsuta, Javanica, and Stem & Vein, and I think that's what I'll have next, in a little while. :)

I'm a professional bodybuilder who usually buys steroids in steroidsfax.org/injectables-steroids . Kratom gives me a little relaxed feel.

Yesterday, and today, featured an offering from Texas Family Harvest "in the blend". Both worked brilliantly. Yesterday was the Wild Crafted Rocket Red, and today was the Wild Harvest Sunrise Suma. Yesterday might have had too stimulating a lineup, as it kept me up late. lol, live and learn.

I gotta laugh how my search engine helpfully thinks I meant to look up Maeng Da Kratom. :)

www.ecosia.org/search?q=White+Nanga+kratom

Google is more street wise though, and gets it. ;)

www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=White+Nanga+kratom

"Nanga Pinoh is a small village in Melawi Regency, West Kalimantan.
It is not very well known as a source, but there is many very old kratom trees here that results in excellent and unique strains.
All the strains from Nanga Pinoh are very high quality. An excellent choice."

Wow, helluva review at another vendors site. They're not on the approved list so I'll PM you the link. Made me smile, laugh, and have a bit of FOMO.

Today I started off with White Nanga from Fused Flora’s line up ..... this is a new batch and is pretty much “amazing “ B-)

Longest legs on this lovely variety , 5.5 hrs and could of gone a couple more hrs without a doubt ....but I re-dosed at the 5.5 mark. This is a smooth sailing energy, marked euphoria, the kind that lets you know how good you feel with shining clarity, which is never a bad thing imo lol, very good pain relief , yep, a pain relieving white !!!! Packing some long running moodlift to boot . I think I’m in love lol. I’ll try again to see if I get a repeat experience on more areas than not. So that had me going great, redosed at 12:45 usually i take my second serving at 11... occasionally 10:30am... so that’s a testament to the enduring benefits this Nanga imparts . Yes , thank you , may I have another ?? B-) ?? Beautiful leaf (L)

Nothing I’ve taken after my morning serving did what this white Nanga did for my body and mind .... can you tell I like leaf this ALOT ? :-?

I went with Kratom One's Red Horn, and it gets a thumbs up to "Will it blend". It was nice to get the pain relief while also having energy. A surprise entry into what was working for me today is the second Kratom of the day, Hawksbill Green Maeng Da. Very upbeat, and with tremendous legs. Lol, it got me to the gym, and now I'm hoping that the spirit of the Kratom tree will bless the serving of The Kratom Syndicate Signature Series Red I just took, because my back is starting to ache from the workout. :)

For rheumatoid arthritis, Dr. Atkins spoke approvingly of selenium and ginger due to their anti-inflammatory effect on that. I've got his book on Vita-Nutrients next to me, if you want me to look something up.

Extremely satisfyingly - www.youtube.com/watch?v=qg1ckCkm8YI
the smoke when he opens the lid......

Champagne Kratom Blend- Pa botanicals
White Kapuas, White Indo, White Gold and Yellow strain
Awesome mood lift with good pain relief. You will be able to clean up renovation dust from hell for more than 4 hours.
Good strain to take when you spouse says "nah it should not make too much dust" during kitchen reno's and then you realize its a completely false statement.

I am into taking blends now and I am waiting for the highly reviewed Fuzzy dragon to arrive from InSense botanicals. :)

Anyone take resveratrol suppls for inflammation? I still feel kratom is excellent but I recently read resveratrol is even better than turmeric, another addition to my anti inflammatory herbals?
