Hi mindspace, Babel-17, friends,

Can’t thank you enough, Babel-17 for addressing the overlap with regard to the two websites and strain types!

We also got the more expansive payment methods for our customers by having two businesses, among other beneficial reasons. We are happy to explain in more detail over the phone. Just give us a call and ASK THE QUESTIONS. We are transparent and would prefer to be asked than for misconceptions to be assumed. If the two websites issue rubs customers the wrong way, we would appreciate knowing that so we can make changes to how we represent ourselves. We really NEED THAT INPUT.

InSense and/or Gold Leaf Botanicals offer a few different ways to sample the products at bargain bundled prices for your research purposes. Experimenting is, indeed, wise to do BEFORE kilo shopping.

I think everyone would agree, finding the right kratom for your metabolism, especially for a routine base kilo brand, takes time and work. Rushing the process doesn’t get the work over with properly. You are keeping that in mind. We appreciate your consideration and would be happy to discuss samples and any other questions you might have, one on one over the phone.
Sounds like you’re enjoying the kratom journey and getting helpful results along the way and that’s the goal!

There's some overlap with a few strains, both sites sell the exact same one, but imo it basically comes down to if you want the most of Kratom's two main alkaloids, you go for the plantation. If you're looking for an interesting "burn" and want to see what an alkaloid profile that favors some of the lesser known properties of Kratom, you can explore the wild grown stuff. Some amazing things can happen when wild grown Kratom gets dried and cured. Skilled growers know how to bring out a wicked aroma from Kratom leaves that were picked at the right time. Gold Leaf Botanicals has, for example, some White Hulu that earned a reputation for being a good example of that.

In Sense Botanicals has a Golden Benulu that combines both wild and plantation grown Kratom. I'm pretty sure that Gold Leaf sells the same version of that. I can vouch for that, and I use it as often as I can without having it lose its status of being a special treat. Timing is part of what makes it a nice burn. ;)

I'm going to order from BulkKratomNow. Thanks for that suggestion! It's so much cheaper to get the kilo but I really would like to try some of their strains first. I like their 5 strain sample pack. I'd end up paying almost the same price for half kilo as the kilo though...but I can't pick just 1 yet. I want to try a few!

Asked them for recommendations and I picked these 5 for the sample pack: Gold Bali, Red Elephant, White Borneo, Green Jong Kong, White Horn.
6.99 shipping or pick another 100g at 18.99 to get free shipping, so I'm also getting Green Maeng Da (so 600g at ~$60 vs a kilo at 60...but at least I can try 6 strains...)

Thinking about just getting cravingkratom now too while there's the $55 kilo deal or 40% off code. Same with BKN though that I'd rather try a few different strains than get a kilo of just 1. The $55 deal doesn't work on split kilos either.

I've had re-leaf and love his product, also really like Inland, and just want to try out a couple more vendors. I originally planned on trying Insense/Goldleaf this time but I guess that'll be for another time

Hi there! Aside from Kratom, I get the best relief with topical CBD cream. I'm scheduled to for a hip surgery in a couple months and it's been a miracle. Aside from that, I know there are a ton of other herbs that work great too, I just don't have personal experience with them. We do have a Certified Herbalist/ Holistic Health Practitioner on staff tomorrow and Friday from 10-6 PST. Feel free to give us a call and she can certainly make some herbal suggestions for you.

I’ve only recently been made aware of BKN, I don’t know if this price will continue at 60$, but presently that’s the deal.

Craving Kratom is no slouch either lol, I believe they were/ are offering first purchase discount at 55$ kilo. I’d contact them if interested .

Plantation versus wild .... both are great imo, but have a different signature feel to them . It’s a big area worth exploring. Some strains I prefer wild from Goldleaf , others plantation from InSense. Either way , hard to go wrong !

Somethingsacredgoinonhere, thank you so much! I'll have to print this as my resource to new vendors lol. Bulk Kratom Now at a $60 kilo sounds great! but I hadn't heard of them before this; I was ready to order from cravingkratom with a 40% off code... but still will get almost 3x as much at the same price ! Might have to re-consider...

I think there can be several factors that might differentiate Wild Grown from Plantation Grown. I assume that most plantations would want to ensure that they were growing Kratom plants that would be high in Kratom's two most well known alkaloids, while Wild Grown Kratom is going to lean more towards offering pretty much what's been on the menu for hundreds of years. Though harvesting time, drying and curing, would still play a huge role.

I doubt that there's always a clear demarcation between the two, as even Wild Grown Kratom plants could be getting attention to keep them healthy, and Plantation grown Kratom is unlikely, imo, to be getting overly fussed over.

Location might be the biggest differential in what alkaloid profiles dominate. Deeper into the jungle means different soil, water, and amount of sunlight.
