Try a smaller size package of the RHB first. To me the RHB is similar to the Bali.

You are basically right ziggy456m. Most Vendors do this to act like they have so much Variety of Kratom. I think there is only about 5 Basic Strains like Thai, Indo, Malay, Borneo etc.

I hate to say this, but out of those 24 strains, there probably is really only 3 to 6 strains. A lot of suppliers in Indonesia probably make up a few names to satisfy the Americans need for it, and then the Vendors in the US make up a few more names. Red Vietnam and Emerald Borneo, LOL. I don't think any Kratom in the US is coming from Vietnam. They even make up Vein colors that don't really exist. I remember when I first started Kratom, I tried like 10 different kinds, and I was like, they all seem very similar to me. There was like one or two strains that I could tell the difference from. Sometimes I even wonder about all the claims of Maeng Da. I wonder if when there in the rain forest if they have like 10 different baskets, and there like "Oh, no that's the Wild White Thai tree, and the leaves are mature, put them leaves in the Old White basket, and make sure you don't get them mixed up. Oh, skip that tree today, were doing the Raiu leaves on Tuesday." Kind of funny when you think about! I don't blame the Vendors, because I would do the same thing, and I read the descriptions too, like ooh that looks good, even though I know better. That's just how the human brain works.

I wish I knew which other strains to get from this vendor. They have a good deal going for Red Horned Borneo. 1 KG going for $99. However I don't want to spend $99 if I don't know if I'll like it. I have liked all of the red strains I've tried from them so far- Red Bali, Red Vietnam and Wild Red Thai. I have seen big issues with the green strains for me personally. I''m thinking maybe I should go for some other red strains they have and some white ones. Really tempted to go for the Red Horned Borneo.

At first trying these strains I wasn't sure how different they were, but it seems as if the green one makes me aggravated and moody while the red one seemed like I could tolerate it a lot better and it actually kinda makes me calmer. It is not sedating as they say, either. I actually find that the green gives me an unpleasant and heavy brain load, whereas the red bali seems to boost my mood and just make me feel normal in a good way.

Still gonna experiment more , but i wanna make sure my mind isnt playing tricks on me. I really think that is the case.


Experimenting is the best thing to do. I think both GS & RB are relaxing & analgesic strains. I've never tried Green Sunda before so I couldn't tell you how it effects me. I want to try it though. I have heard it is a very unique strain like nothing else. Everybody responds to each strain differently. That is set in stone for Kratom Users.

I have tried the Green Thai , Green maeng da, and red veitnam ..and look forward to trying more.
thanks Christina


I am also still learning about Kratom. Sometimes Green strains will be more energetic than their white counterpart. For example I find Green Maeng Da to be more uplifting than White Maeng Da. Same thing with Thais.

This is such good info I just want to keep posting it & passing it on.

Here's a break down by aroma class By Heath, Body & Mind VENDOR:

Class - Strong aroma and in your face: This is very strong leaf and great for those that have high tolerance and don't care much for subtleties.

- White Thai
- White Sunda
- Red Horn Borneo
- Green Vietnam
- Green Indo
- Emerald Borneo
- Green Maeng Da


Class - Connoisseur level: These are appreciated by those with experience and can tell the difference between different vein colors and appreciate subtleties. These tend to be very clean aroma, mostly cerebral and almost wobble free.

- Green Sunda
- Red Sunda
- Plantation Maeng Da
- Wild Green Thai
- Wild White Thai
- Wild Red Thai
- Elephant Wild Green Thai
- Red Riau


Class - Middle of the Road: These are great for those looking for a good compromise and not looking for something to knock them on their a$$. A daytime burn so you can still get a good aroma but still get some work done. Good cerebral and body load.

- Green Malay
- Red Borneo
- Red Thai
- Red Bali
- Red Vietnam
- White Borneo
- Yellow Borneo
- White Maeng Da
- Yellow Maeng Da
