Hey everybody,

Over the last 7 years this forum has grown exponentially. With your help, We have created a community of Kratom enthusiasts to come together and discuss the industry. The traffic that this site has received has been exciting but also overwhelming. All the while the site grew a little out of date. Over the last few weeks we have updated the platform of the Forum as well as the face of the forum. CHECK OUT THAT NEW LOGO!!! sweet right?!

I use kratom once a week on hangover days only. It completely transforms the worst day in which i do nothing into a great day in which i am happy and get my brainy engineering work done.

I've tried a lot of random strains and what I know is that greens generally make me feel a little too anxious. My favorite is Red Hulu and I've been using it for a couple years now. I've come to realize that it has a very high level of euphoria, and some websites say it's among the most green-like of the reds. The problem is that it makes me a little too dumb.

White Hulu is sort of a step in the right direction, it's less euphoric but makes me less dumb.

I was wondering if anyone, based on this information, could recommend to me a strain that is higher on the euphoria, but doesn't cloud brain function so much.

Thanks much

The Green Riau, or the Green or Red Sumatra, from In Sense Botanicals or Gold Leaf Botanicals (same owners), the Super Green Malay from Otie's Botanicals, the Green Hulu from Hudson Valley Botanicals, the Gold MD from Soflo Kratom, and either the Green Hulu, or Green MD, from shop.Kratom d o t c o m. I have to spell it that way to avoid the spam guard which reads it wrong.

Here's an excellent deal, and a no-brainer.

insensebotanicals.com/product/3oz-sampler-pack-shipped-free/

goldleafbotanicals.net/

Pick three.

I'm pretty sure that several people will agree with the Green Riau. Maybe see if anyone comes down strongly in favor of any others? I never tried their Super Green Malay because I have a lot of the excellent one from Otie's. But I'm sure the In Sense one is very good as well. The White Hulu can put a smile on your face, but it can be really energizing which could be good, or not quite what you're looking for in your workplace.

The Red Sumatra might be the best balance if you're very concerned that there be zero anxiety from there being too much zip in the Kratom.

Green Riau from Insense
There are at least three of us here that all feel it offers excellent mental clarity and motivation. Helps with Don's (tiggermanscrat) headaches which is a great plus to find from any kratom. The last time I took Green Riau I felt a bit aggressive but with the mental clarity I had control. It was almost too much confidence for me, I am getting a bit older for more motivation than I need.
Strange review for a Kratom strain? Riau is a little bit of a unique strain.
Of course outcomes of any kratom strains can be unique to each's own body chemistry. Not everyone will like this strain. If you decide to give it a try I would be curious of your feedback.
I do not know how you dose but I would go a tad lower than norm??

Other suggestions-
Green Borneo or Emerald Green from Pa Botanicals
Green Maeng Da from Amazingbotanicals
.
Best

Hey guys im new here but not new to kratom and thought id jump right in on this topic as a start.

So for me personally, I found that there isn't much difference between the colors other than my own brain making me think there is. While i've just been randomly selecting a kratom each morning in plastic bags which i put the kratom in with no markings. It's proven to myself there is no difference to the colors as its been said there has. What i have noticed though is the difference in where the strain comes from. After reading a study about the regions kratom is grown and the study providing lab results to the percentage of alkaloids present in each strain from different regions marking Thai kratom with the highest alkaloid content. I've found this to be true. The study says the highest alkaloid content of mitragynine and 7ohm is from THAI kratoms. We know those main alkaloids are the cause for euphora right? After closely evaluating this from personal experience it seems to be true to me. I use the Red Thai which makes me very euphoric but also keeps me moving throughout the day and very focused. With all that being said i understand kratom will effect people differently, but i would say try any kratom that is Thai kratom. Finding a true Thai kratom will be your biggest hurdle.

Hope this helps your dillema and hello to everyone

Welcome thatstuffkray, :-h

As Nan mentioned the Green Riau helps get rid of my headaches it also has the added bonus of giving me excellent clarity.
I, and the electrical engineers I work with, have noticed a difference in my memory, focus, and concentration since I started taking the kratom in March 2019. Most don't know why because they don't know I take kratom. I don't hide it but I don't advertise it unless asked or I see someone who could use it for pain relief.
Before the kratom these things were slowly fading as my age has increased.:ohmy:

Nan also mentioned some aggressiveness when taking the Green Riau. My wife and I have noticed that with me also. I don't know if it goes hand in hand with the enhanced clarity and focus. :-?

For me those strains/types that are sold as greens or whites usually have the most clarity. Although some of the white named ones also can cause jitters in me.

Most of those sold as Red kratom that I have purchased make me tired but there are a couple that have caused just relaxation and have been calming.
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. ;)

Hey kray, I am definitely interested in finding a clear-headed yet euphoric strain as I too attempt my engineering work after dosing and sometimes find myself a little slowed. I don't particularly like very speedy strains, but a couple green Malays I've tried have been quite sedating and some have been euphoric but a little less slow, so that might be a good thing to check out. I really liked Benni's Maeng Da Blend- it was one of the most euphoric strains I've tried recently and I found it to be quite functional as well. Benni's green Malay was very good as well, though I preferred it mixed with others where it really added quite a euphoric boost to other strains. Perhaps mixed with a middle-of-the-line red, you might find it suitable?

I’m definitely curious as to where people can get any true leaf originated in Thailand. Over the past 6 or 7 years, I recall seeing one batch of unknown quantity offered. It was a HUGE celebration of opportunity with limited amounts per customer and sold out in several hours (it’s happened once publicly only where I was shopping at that time, so there could be substantially more going on that I missed, plus I have no idea how the likely underground system works). It WAS some of my best, unenhanced kratom.

From what I’ve read, it’s still illegal to export it in large quantities, and only for personal use. The punishment for shipping large quantities is DEATH (?!). I can’t offer that statement as fact! Nothing on the internet is actual truth anymore. Here’s a cool article that is not too terribly dated on the topic (if this site will allow me to post a link):

www.forbes.com/sites/sarabrittanysomerse...kratom/#6dfc48812bb9

I suspect Babel-17 and others have more accurate knowledge to provide on the topic. I had to jump in because I'm continually fascinated by the "Country of origin" issues in this industry.

Disclaimer edited in: Insense and Gold Leaf Botanicals offer lovely Thai strains. I’m not privy to the Country of origin with regard to accruing products. My purpose is more along the lines of helping people find good product from a trusted source who is working toward cGMP compliance.
