BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND...
A few months ago we asked some of the Approved Vendors to offer some discounts to our community. A lot of them graciously did. We have been asked to bring those discounts back. The following vendors would like to share the love for this forum with you. I know we all appreciate it.

SoCal isnt a place I hear about a lot. ever YouTube reviews about them like with TKS, Botanical kratom, which are both great sites. But actually SoCal wasn recommended to me by someone on this site.
I didn't place a huge order or anything (have another one on the way. I just was going to tell y'all about me and Taylors experience with a few strains.
SoCal is extremely cheap price wise. 25 bucks for a quarter kilo (250 grams) and I'm sure the more you get the cheaper obviously. And then 5 bucks per ounce. Typically I felt the "you get what you pay for" but the quality was excellent to us. Also I live in eastern North Carolina and they are obviously in California so its across the country. They have a priority shipping option and for 2 extra dollars priority with a signature required which I'm ok without. So the priority was around 7 dollars I believe maybe a dollar cheaper but the order shipped the day I ordered which some sites don't always do. It only took 3 days including the order date. So that'sawesome. They also list the batch date to let you oknow how fresh etc. Anyways I know I said a brief review but I typed a harry potter book. So here is our results.
Chocolate red bentuangie- Taylor hates red veins typically, but she loves this one. Took it two days in a row and felt the same mood lifting and pain relief properties. I agreed as well I have a much higher tolerance than her and it worked so well for me. I didn't get very drowsy on it like normal reds and could say I had energy, great mood, chronic pain in my knees was gone, talkative, I also felt as though if I wanted to take it as a sleep strain it would still be effective. So this is by far our favorite. I haven't had this quality of kratom in a very long time and for the price of it its a steal. I got 250 grams of it

Green Vietnam- good energy stain, actually helped pain pretty well and I was pretty impressed. Taylor hasn't tried it yet and I've only taken it once so I can't say for sure how great it is but it was pretty good.

Yellow Thai- Taylor took this one by itself and she felt it but she said she got nauseas (probably her tolerance)

Red Sulawesi- now this is interesting taylor loved this red and she slept great with her mind at ease basically relaxed as she can be, she has bad anxiety. Now with me I decided to take the yellow Thai and the Sulawesi together, not something I typically do but I took a total of 9 grams. About 5 of the sulwashi and 4 of the Thai. Just a little experiment and it worked like a charm. Slept great that night with not a worry in the world.

White Cambodian- this was both me and Taylors least favorite strain. I'm not usually a big white vein type of person but taylor loves them. I got to say this wasn't awful but I wouldn't buy it again it was below average. But then again 5$ I spent on it.

So basically out of all of them I experienced one of my new favorite strains from any site. This includes happy hippo, TKS, and botanical kratom. Being the chocolate bent. As well as enjoying the yellow Thai and red Sulawesi a whole lot. Green Vietnam had the oldest batch date on it, so that maybe why I wasn't ecstatic about it. Then the white I really didn't like but there will always be strains you don't enjoy from anywhere, and everyone is different . They have so many strains on their website so I'd really check them out sometime. Also very responsive customer service as well.

SoCal is a solid company. I have ordered from them a few times and will again in the future.

Your review came through. Sometimes I get that "spam detected" warning when I hit submit twice (no patience - SEND ALREADY! LOL)
I wouldn't sweat the spelling unless you're discussing a legally binding Bill about your SISTA instead of the one about synthetic rogues named the SITSA bill! Lmao
Great review! I got a load of their stuff through a third party who can't tolerate kratom and I LOVE THEIR STUFF, too. I have reds for every occasion! Haha! Thanks God because my back pain is STILL an issue, so I switch around and mix their stuff with the likes of Serenity Botanical, COB's mixes, Dwi's special kilo deal, another no-name-on the forum (he prefers his name only be mentioned in certain places online for safety, Re-Leaf when I have it, HB&M when I have it, and Hawksbill, Quick Kratom and Green Leaf, to name a few, lol! All of the above mentioned are recommended. I have little dabs from each to keep from ever having the same strain precisely twice, except when testing for reviews done here. THANKS FOR WEIGHING IN on a great resource and your thoughts were easy to perceive and enjoy!

Thanks Laurie it is a awesome site. I get some of their more popular strains on Monday. Do you have any experience with these "akumma seeds?" I heard they work well but a lot of people also say white grapefruit juice to make kratom work better but I didn't notice a difference. Then again I just toss and wash with water everytime. SoCal has so many herbal supplements I want to try out. Taylor is excited about this charcoal soap. Just thought I would ask

I haven't shopped with them yet DIRECTLY, I got their stuff second hand from Kobegirl for a reasonable price because she couldn't continue with kratom due to other health conditions (she required high HIGH doses of 6 tablespoons at a TIME! Not recommended!). So I bought her remaining stock and have been having a fine time enjoying various vendor products that I had never been financially able to try! I shop for other supplements from Serenity Botanical for stuff like cat's claw, ashwagandha and such. Jeff and Kimberley have prices for those of us at the depth of financial self destruct. I'm still trying to rebuild my life and learn how to earn a few bucks before I get too old - getting pretty close to TOO OLD ALREADY, but I'm still trying :)
I was married for 20 years and my then husband kept me on a tiny allowance I used to get my hair done and put gas in my car. You could say I lived in a bubble for 20 years. He buried OUR retirement savings after turning it all into silver and gold, so I was left with NOTHING after our divorce (except a 401k I earned before and during the marriage before depression took hold of me, I'm living on that and chump change I earn as a caregiver now. It pays for gas, hair color and ecigs (a habit I can't afford but can't seem to quit just yet. One QUIT at a time! Ha).
Some people really LIKE akuamma seeds! I've only gotten them once and they were moldy, so the vendor refunded my money. Have you looked at Jeffrey at Pharmacy Drop Out (PDO) for alternative supplements? I'm pretty sure he carries good botanicals as well. It's high time I looked again. BRB!

Here's a link to the seeds Jeffrey carries that many find very helpful : pdobotanicals.com/collections/new-produc...ber-picralima-nitida

Check Serenity Botanical for a wider range of products, but I would try Jeffrey for the seeds!

PS: I'm not sure they're the same seeds, but PDO has ONLY superb product.

Both Jeffs are WONDERFUL AND HELPFUL so email them with questions :)

I have just ordered Akuamma seed powder through Amazon.ca. It is going to take over a month to get here.

Still looking for a Canadian vendor...maybe by the time this order arrives I will have found one!
