Welcome to the forum, Okstate1212!

For fun, my money is on Tea Time Botanicals!

If I’m right, they have an excellent team of customer service peeps that can really help you organize your goods.

But. You really are stuck with the crash test dummy sort of try-it-n-see!

These days, I prefer to keep it simple and order reds and greens and blends using those shades.

I’ve had a similar purchase before and I logged onto the website with my bags and made notes. Then I made notes based on my response. It was a lot of extra work getting started, but it helped me absolutely enjoy the necessary “adventures” with SOME IDEA as to what helps with what.

Please let me know if I guessed right? I’m looking forward to YOUR experiences with some of those!

Welcome to ILK Okstate,

I’m gonna ramble for a sec , forgive me in advance if my rant is less than useful ..
I feel that kratom “strain” names are used to imply certain characteristic traits , .... however -not all “maeng da” , ”bentuangie” “red Thai” have the same effects/quality .....when taking from diff vendors , or even the same “strain” from a diff batch from the same vendor . I’d check out the Re-Leaf web site to get a better detailed view of what I’m hinting at . After talking with vendors and reading from there ideas ... I’m into the idea that it all comes down to “everything under the sun”
( lol )that makes kratom have ideal effects for your chemistry... location of the trees , time of the year , maturity of the trees , drying method .... and personal chemistry. This may seem abstract but the longer I utilize kratom , I’ve found it to be a personal preference of alkaloids that suits ones fancy ... then again ... good kratom is good kratom no matter how its broken down ! But good kratom can be great kratom on diff days haha!!

Names are great , I love most green Malays I’ve tried , but does it have to do with a certain tree or “strain”? Idk exactly ... but I’m more inclined to think it’s due to the alkaloid profile and how the “everything else factor “ plays a part in the equation ! Confused ? I starting to confuse myself ! It’s a hard to pin down thing when it comes to strain names ... because those having the same name can be so different from each other ... Some vendors are very consistent with batches ...your probability of getting a very similar experience from a new batch is from one of these consistent vendors is likely ... probably sourced from the same area of kratom trees , maturity of leaf and drying methods used by a supplier.

I find it sooo fascinating, to no end really , kratom is a miraculous leaf ...the one thing I know to be truly consistent , I like some more than others , and then there’s batches that I just love !

Hope you enjoy this awesome community and please share your experience with these “strains” you recently received... would love to hear all about !

Cheers
Life is better with kratom !

Welcome okstate1212. :-h

That is quite a purchase. :woohoo:

I never heard of those vendor specific names so it is as TopExtracts said, "you will likely have to ask the vendor/s you purchased from" or you may get lucky and someone here will recognize the vendor as one they have used before.

In a month after you have tried all those out you can give us a review of them. :cheer:

Most of these sound like they are vendor specific, many of them are not just 'typical' strains, so you will likely have to ask the vendor/s you purchased from.

I’ve read so many different articles comparing the different colors and strains but feel like it’s kinda all over the place.
