Having and extract as part of a blend doesn't necessarily mean a better experience. There is a vendor I have been following and placed an order with, that openly says that it's 30% extract. Most of the the reviews say it is his weakest blend.

that's crazy. I really hope vendors aren't adding extracts to the batch. If anything they should say that, I'm sure they could charge more haha

Hey,

Ya ive been doing a self review with about 10 different Vendors, as to better give advice on Kratom to the people I tell about it thats wanting to come off opiates, and the color in the veins makes sense but even in Carpoos video he mentions as far as he knows theres just 1 Maeng Da ssooo I think if you try a vendor that list a red,white,green,thai maeng da that you like and it works good for you that it doesnt really matter if there only 1 or not, BUT some of the best Maeng Da Ive tried thus far was always labled as Maeng da and didnt list a Vein color so I guess it just come down to Just trying it, O yea when you mentioned the different vendors and strains really being kratom that there selling, ive heard of alot of them adding extracts to weak batches to make the consumer "feel" they got a good batch but hounestly theres no telling, Womp Womp Womp,

Your absolutely right about having to try strains for yourself to see what effects it has on you. When it comes to kratom it effects different people differently. I also wonder about if half of the Kratom sold are really the strains they say they are. Almost all of the Kratom comes from Indonesia, so the Red Thai you buy is grown in Indonesia always. Maybe they cloned a red vein from Thailand and grew it in Indonesia but it's doubtful. I think Maeng da does have colors. I think all kratom leaves have veins and a vein color. I think consumers and then US vendors want a bunch of cool names,so I think Indonesian suppliers and US vendors give people what they want, a bunch of strain names. I've recently been buying kilos from a real cool Indonesian grower, I will try to get more info from him.

Hey,

Im not only meaning Maeng Da colors, I mean all of them, im just trying to figure out was there any rhyme to there reason, I agree as long as its a good product its all that should matter, I have alot of people that look to me for advice and just want to give the most acurate advice I can when they ask me a question, but from I what I can tell the vendors that truthful in what they sell and dont lace batches or do what ever it is they do to sell there product will shine through, so ya ive talked some with Josh over at carpoos and he shed alot of light on the Maeng Da questions, so thanks all for your replys.

I don't think I would worry if red, white, green, or yellow md is really md. What's important is if the the product is consistently effective and people enjoy it.

Hi Ryan. I think a reason that you will find, at least in my experience, that vendors show empathy, is that most started selling kratom after they became enamoured with this beautiful leaf. They had issues of pain and emotional distress and found such relief with kratom. That understanding of the positive change in their lives translates to showing patience and a genuine concern for their prospective customers. They will sometimes go out of their way to make sure that you derive satisfaction in treating your condition(s). I hope this makes sense to you. They are some of the most sensitive and caring individuals I have had the pleasure of communicating with.
