Hi
I've been a member of another kratom forum and have seen quite a few people say changing strains on a frequent basis really helps keep the effects at a high level. I have a hard time with that myself as when I get a really good product I don't want to change it until it's gone :)

I think it's already been alluded to here, but unfortunately making a killer list of high quality kratom vendors is difficult because they affect everyone differently.

I had a shameful amount of 1 ounce bags of various strains from different vendors.
It is intriguing that some work - some don't. I have kept all of them 'for a rainy day'. Well, Bingo. The strains that did work stopped. The strains that did not work were excellent.
I saved all of my packets - stored many of them in airtight containers, wrapped them up and placed in a small freezer.
I am so happy that I did not trade, sell, give away or throw them out.
Well - I take that back. I did share/dispose of a larger amount of a particular kratom that I initially ordered. Never did a thing!
And the beat goes on ....
A never ending adventure!
Best,

I did manage to order some of that Green K from Hawaii, Kratomcritic. FAST ship. Pretty nice sift, etc. For the pain I am having lately (healing broken bones in foot, ankle and leg with arthritis now), it did not work as well as I imagine it would on sciatica. Very happy with the vendor and I thank you for the referral.

Thanks. I guess there is still hope. I know they say to rotate strains often but I can only rotate green ones for now because the other ones don't help at all anymore. But I guess maybe they will again when the green ones stop working.

When you develop some tolerance to the alkaloids in Kratom you may need a stronger dose to get the same effects.

BUT tolerance also might make the same dose have shorter "legs" or just milder effects as time goes on.

I have noticed my usual 4.2 gm dose is pretty much gone 2 hours after I take it....a larger dose lasts about 4 hours.

So it is not an issue of strains or strain variation...it is tolerance.

We have all noticed that the effects of strains are not always consistent, even the same strain from the same vendor as different batches can also have variations in the alkaloid profile depending on growing conditions.

You are doing the right thing...if a strain stops working we usually advise to just put it aside and try some other new strains. Chances are by the time you put it back into your rotation it will work better.

Thank you for your welcome :) I know what you mean. I was worried that the strains might come from different places and the same strain might be totally different the next time. I have seen the effects changing over time too like you say. I was using the reds and they were my favorites, but now they do barely nothing at all for my nerve damage problem except red ketapang but it all might change. I have so much pain it overshadows the effects of the whites and I never feel anything at all from them because the pain is so bad and constant . All that works for me is the greens but that leaves a lot less variation for me. I hope that doesn't change much because then I won't know what to do. Maybe if the greens stop working then the reds will again :). Or maybe nothing will work and I will have no more pain relief :( Also during the first few months with kratom, it used to last for much longer. Now I get pain relief for only about 3 hours. But then when it wears off fast, it wears of really fast. Oh well, everything else in life changes too. I guess you just have to go with the flow.

Laurie,
I used to love reds - and only reds.
Lately, I am doing more and more greens and a few whites.
Whites made me so irritable and jittery awhile back - now, I blend with greens and reds for day. Good with my morning caffeine.
Be careful with those whites, my Friend ... I can see they contribute to HIGH ANXIETY!
Every one be well - oh, and Happy Monday!
Best,
T

I love this idea!

My favorite is never the same from one day to the next. Seriously. Don’t have one bag that’s better than the others or it would be huge and likely empty - ha!

I’d say greens are my favorite because the mood lift really helps counteract my depression.

Reds are my favorite for acute pain relief.

What vendor and country of origin is a complete guess from day to day. I’m blessed with a healthy array of choices (I pray we always have such vast resources we can trust).

I used to LOVE LOVE LOVE whites. Now, they’re ok, but I don’t bother much with it because my anxiety has been set on SUPER TOUCHY lately already. Menopause or whatever. Me...

Really cool to see a good number of experienced folks joining our ranks. Yay! There are never TOO MANY perspectives!

Kratomcritic,
I have some Red Ketapang from Kat’s and Green Keta from Davine.
I will be able to compare in the next few weeks.
Happy to have you on board.

Welcome kratomcritic!
There are different sections in the index to write reviews of Kratom and vendors.
I like your idea!
