Hi, TiffyM. You bring up a good point. There are legal reasons why vendors cannot say much about the product they sell. Anything that vaguely sounds like a medical claim can be prosecuted by the FDA. It is unfortunate -- and sometimes vendors will say things like "Pain Relieving", which the FDA construes as a health claim -- and they may get away with it. Sometimes they don't.

This leaves the buyer to do their research on independent sites, such as on the blog section of ILoveKratom.com, where I posted a Beginners' Guide to Kratom. Unfortunately, I didn't use a numerical rating chart because: #1) I didn't think of it ;); and #2) ratings of kratom are very subjective and differ from vendor to vendor, person to person, and even batch to batch. Even a strain that is widely understood to be stimulating, may be a dud in your body. This is why sample assortments are such a good idea.

Finding the strain of kratom that suits your physiology perfectly can be a lot like going to a wine-tasting. It may take a bit of trial-and-error, but it can be a lot of fun and full of pleasant surprises.

Some people, for unknown reasons, are "wired" completely different than most in their reactions to kratom. They are stimulated by Red Vein varieties and put to sleep by Greens or even White Veins. My point is, you won't know until you try several strains to see which ones you especially like.

There shouldn't be a problem in posting a link to a site as an example of something useful, as long as it isn't your own site.

I've heard good things about Green Leaf. I'm just saying, "Try a sample before you buy a kilo."

Thanks for an interesting suggestion!

Just wanted to suggest a place to find info for specific 0-10 Number Ratings for each different Type/Strain. I was visiting the Green Leaf Kratom website last night and when you select each different strain that the offer, it gives a short explanation of that strain, but the best part for me is that they offer a numerical rating for the Energizing effects, the Sedating effects, and the Pain relieving effects. For example, it may look something like this:


I have only been researching Kratom so far, and have ordered several samples, but I am very excited to try it. I am hoping that it will help with to increase my energy because I have Narcolepsy. I also suffer from Chronic pain, so I would love to get some pain relief as well. But I am not interested in any of the sedating qualities. So for me, being able to select a strain and then get a more quantifiable indication of how it will benefit me is huge. Especially for someone just starting out and not knowing where to begin. Many sites don't even offer any type of description other than the name. Then there are some that give a small description. Of course, everywhere describes White as Energizing, Green as Energizing but smoother, and Red as Sedating with good pain relief. I wish everyone that sold Kratom would use this number rating method of describing their products, but since they don't, in my opinion, the Green Leaf Kratom website is a great place to go to get more specific ideas of what strain might work better for your specific issues. Even if you don't intend to but the product from them, it is a great place to get more specific info on each different strain, color, type, etc. I wanted to just provide a link to the site, but I wasn't sure if that was okay to do. So I figured I would put the info here in the suggestion box and maybe you could tell me if it is okay to post it or you all could create something similar to help other people mure fully understand the differences between the many choices.
