I have been pleased with everything from InSense, especially the dark red meng da. I have quite a bit from Mitragaia, but it hasn't really knocked me out. I have good White Indo, stem and vein, and Green from Oties. I bought one of the samples from PA botanicals, all good.

I had a lot of misc. samples and such from Red Devil and Happy Hippo. That was when I first started with Kratom and i honestly wasn't paying very close attention to what I was using or what the difference was. With the Happy Hippo I am not sure what any of the strains were, because they made up their own names like Snuggy Hippo etc. I have since combined all those bits into a mystery bag.

I am currently using greens as I need the mood lift with all the horrible news going on. I just ordered from InSense, forgot to use our ILK disccount code. But I will probably order from them again soon.

hey chrisponce!

great question. i think ripleys got it pegged. i rotate strains AND companies often. only things i buy quantity of my husband and i both take.

re-leaf is one of my top 5 vendors. i have a monthly subscription ( way cheaper if you do that ) they have killer blends that constantly rotate. 500g free just for signing up.. and i mean i pay 23 bucks for 100g. ( they always send at least 150.. sometimes samples on top of that! )

i have tried their' high class' to my personal chemistry it isnt any better than their regular leaf. the krambo, angry red soothe, super red remix, green pillow, so many to mention. my code for an extra 10% off is GRYVOIQUU8. sign up for rewards and you will have free kratom in no time, even just with your own orders. i even have a few 'menu rejects' im digging.

its tough to only pick one other vendor...right now for me thats either insense botanicals ( any dragon blend, red bali, yellow borneo, any gold, dark red MD, white hulu, ohhh too many to mention!

or lucky herbals. all their stuff is great. but i think they will be taking new customers the end of the month if i remember correctly.

i personally have had great luck with oties. their stuff is strong to me, i take a touch less than most. their red gold or super gold are my faves.

i also had great luck with inland. their yellow brick road set me straight to work smiling and humming i swear.

gina, i agree with brandon! awesome pic! rare to have such beauty, brains, and genuine compassion and empathy for others. you are a jem ;)



natures cure is another OG i might have to order again soon. always want their red borneo and/ or yellow gold on hand

if you narrow it down we can help you the best we can for an active discount code. or the search is great for that too.

Thx for your post Mr Dude !

The longer I utilize kratom , the more I feel like a sure thing can’t be solidly consistent... what’s solid one day( same vendor/ strain) not solid the next . I feel like tolerance and a healthy rotation is what’s makes a sure thing a strong ongoing sure thing . For example , when I take what I consider to be one of my favorite “strains “ but get less than ideal results .. does it make it less of a sure thing ? Even though I know it to be one of the best? Naw , just the way our receptors work with the kratom alkaloids , and tolerance/ metabolism and the way the stars are aligned :)

I have many great vendors I rotate between .
So it’s really a tricky question to answer .. “Favorite 2 Vendors “.....

Seems like there’s been top notch quality from the plethora of vendors in my rotation . Some varieties/ batches hit better for my chemistry than others , so it’d be more accurate to say who has more varieties than not that suit my chemistry.... better than not lol...

Then there’s the trippy phenomenon of what one initially thinks is crap, ends up being a superior leaf ...!! Always a lovely surprise when that happens. That’s why it’s a good idea to hold onto those ones and know there’s a 50:50 chance or greater that it’s only a matter of time before your blinking in amazement. It’s kinda like when you look in your herbal chest and discover a variety you forgot about, and it’s fantastic .

Quality leaf is quality leaf , imo, even if it doesn’t hit all the buttons on a particular day

Really quite fascinating..!!..!!..

Look forward to hearing more from folks and who their preferred vendors/ “strains” are this year ...

Disclaimer lol- :)
None of my thoughts / views shared here is reflective or indicative of the stance of this amazing forum... (L) though I’m sure I’m not alone on this take wahahababa , bwahahahaha!

Mitragaia? They were my first vendor, and 2 of my 4 orders were absolutely impotent. No effects at all.
1. 1oz Red Bali = really good.
2. 250g Red Dragon (red+white MD) = nothing, no good.
3. 250g Super Green Malay = pretty decent but not as good as #1.
4. 250 Red Bali = no good at all.

Then I tried Oties. A 4-way split kilo. 3 of the 4 were good.
1. Red Bentuangie = No good, totally inert. Even at 3x my usual portion, it does nothing. Tastes like instant coffee + chocolate.
2. Red Bali = Decent, but not what I would call really potent.
3. Super Green = Very good. Potent.
4. Super Green Malay = Good but messy. Has a lot of clumps in it that are hard to break up, always leaves kind of gross "fibers", undissolved trimmings in the bottom of the cup.

Sadly I can not recommend a 'sure thing' vendor yet, because I have yet to find one myself.

In Sense and Gold Leaf have a nice policy regarding sample packs. They offer a good way to try their variety of offerings, and/or to build up a rotation of Kratoms so as to avoid the feeling of your Kratom getting boring, or the "stale strain syndrome".

If you want to jump in with a strong daytime Red then In Sense has a Dark Red MD that is well regarded. The White Hulu from In Sense, and Gold Leaf, is another popular offering. They have lots of good stuff.

Otie's Botanicals, and Soflo, offer split keys, and they get good product. Hudson Valley Botanicals also deals in quality, and at excellent prices.

It almost sounds like it is a tolerance problem. Using the leaf from one vendor can cause that simply because you can't 'stagger' your doses. I also suffer from that. So what I do is buy from my top vendors. Meaning I usually have up to 7 different vendors to choose from in my kratom stash. I mark the days of the week on each package so I know not to take, say Gold Leaf 2 days in a row. ( Insense and Gold Leaf are very good vendors btw)
Treasure House Botanicals numbers each batch so you know if it is a different batch and also if you loved a particular #, you can go re buy that same one again. Also a very good price. ( 30 $ for 250 g)

I just bought a batch from CK Kratom that I saw in here and am waiting for it's arrival. I'll let ya'll know, but have high hopes for that vendor. There's many to choose from in here. I'm working my way through the ones that have the kind of payment availability that I prefer :)

Hello k community, just made an account recently, I need your guys help. I've taking kratom for about 5 years now and been bouncing around vendors, haven't really found something I stick with for more than six months. I was buying from inland botanicals last year for a few months, the quality was great but then I received 2 bad batches and I decided to look elsewhere. Tried Christopher's, but it's about 2 years, at the time I was okay but there was better. I currently have some from mitra, its always a hit or miss with these guys. I bought from them because they were having a sale at about 80 a kilo. I'm at point where I don't mind paying a little more but I don't want to be paying an absurd price. I've been reading some forums on here talking about Re Leaf llc, and they seem to have a good rep. Their "High Class" selection caught my eye, priced at $23 for 50g... So If I'm buying a Kilo, that's $299 with discount included, excluding shipping. Is it just me or is that crazy prices. Maybe It's because I haven't tried $299/k quality.... The most I've ever paid was $175/k . Has anyone tried their "High Class" ? I don't mind paying 100-150/k if it's great quality, but is "High Class" pricing justified? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, hope you all are having a great day!:)
