I get it here tomorrow so I'll do a few of the strains and write a summary about how I liked them. Also wanted to touch base on C.O.B. not trying to slander them or anything but we were very disappointed in the quality of C.O.B. everything else seemed great he seemed like a super nice dude and fast shipping. It looked and smelledfresh but it just ddidn't work for us. I had did a brief review about them and the strains we liked, we didn't put into account that we had taken TKS kratom a hour before (the C.O.B package got there and we couldn't wait to try it) maybe our expectations for C.O.B were too high, or maybe we got their less popular strains, know its a unpopular opinion to have anything negative to say about C.O.B. but we as the consumers have to be honest and i owe honesty to anyone on here. Im in no way saying his kratom was fake or anything, just not high quality he assured, but the reason I'm even saying anything about this is because I had reached out to him about our dissatisfaction with it and he never texted back which really rubbed me the wrong way (I even said I'm not looking for a refund or anything I'm just trying to figure out why these strains weren't working for us. It was just our personal experience. People love C.O.B so it may very well been bad luck on the batch. But I do feel that he should of responded. I've bought from over 20 vendors and I'm not one to complain about stuff (unless something was stolen from my CC or even worse kratom being fake because the only company that I can almost guarantee was pretty close to fake was "thekratomboss" what I'm getting at is I'm not looking for a handout because of me being dissatisfied but rather trying to figure out why it wasn't clicking for us. The guy seemed so consumer friendly and then he didn't respond so the whole point of this is to see if anyone on here has had similar experience with COB, or we were just unlucky. I'll say again his kratom that we received looked and smelled fresh, got 5 strains from there and none really worked. He also through in I believe 2 extra ounces which was so cool that he did that. I just don't understand why it wasn't clicking for us. Sorry guys had to vent about it. At the end of the day I got to be honest with y'all. I'm not affiliated with anyone or receive samples for good reviews. I'm not even close to that I'm not a big enough voice for them to even know who I am. I am thinking about doing a YouTube channel sometime though but I promise I will always be honest good or bad

You may have gotten a bad batch from COB. Chris will rectify it. He has had a couple of bad strains batches before and he did rectify the problem. He took the strains of his sight until a new batch came and he sent people new product. I would email him and let him know. You said you took the TKS an hour before? This could have played a huge role. The TKS strain has probably peaked at that time so any if you add a new strain, you are not going just get the effect of that strain. Maybe the strains didn't agree with each other. It is hard to judge a strain on just one try. There are factors that play into it such as sleep, did you eat before and how long ago. Did you take another strain just before? Maybe you need to adjust your dosage up or down. BTW what strain was it?

Yes I had previously reviewed the COB and that's why I said the green Bali and white mahakam were good, that's what im saying about the TKS playing a role in me thinking they COB was good. Yeah I reached out to him but he didn't respond. I got 5 oz of red Vietnam (4 originally but he threw in a extra) white mahakam, green kapaus, white indo, and green Bali all of those being just one OZ

None of them really worked out well for me or Taylor. I had just finished up a tks and a botanical kratom order before getting the COB. Thanks for the response

His Green Bali gets rave reviews. I want to try that one. I have his Red Vietnam and it may be my favorite red strain. How many times have tried the strains? I usually give up on the 3rd or 4th time.

I've taken the red Vietnam at least 5 times. Green Bali I took once and Taylor took once. She has a low toleranceand she ddidn't like it. We got socal so I put the COB strains on the back burner but I'm going to give them all another try tomorrow morning. I mean the kratom looks so damn fresh and smells great that's why I don't understand why its not working. Maybe something to do with the particular strains and messing with the alkaloids I'm not sure.

This has happened to me with perfectly good products from very reputable sources before. I put it away for 6 months, forget I even had it until I'm looking for some other stuff in my "overstock" bag (stuff I don't currently respond to, it's as big a stash as my rotation bags). Out of the blue, I try it, and it is UH MAZING.

I have no idea why this happens. I don't post about it because, frankly, it's embarrassing (I know the product is fine, but it's of no use to me TODAY).

The only reason why I think it could be a batch issue is you BOTH don't respond. I'm a solo act. When this has happened to me on a review product, I asked ANOTHER reputable vendor to try it. I shipped it to him and he confirmed it was "low alkaloid". At that point, I contacted the vendor and things were resolved.

If you can afford to wait BEYOND TOMORROW to try it again, I suggest you do so. I see no reason why you will suddenly enjoy it. Today or tomorrow.

Plus, there is the TKS issue muddying the situation. I've also had that happen where one vendor product doesn't do me any good after I've recently had another vendor product. Same deal. I stop TRYING SO HARD to get favorable results, put it aside and move on to what works TODAY. Which I recommend.

I'm sure you'll hear from COB. It IS Sunday, after all. Either keep it and try my method, or ask him to let you return it. It's not fun, and I hope his feelings aren't hurt since I luv him. But he's a very fair vendor and good vendors will accept returns for circumstances such as this..

I researched this issue and I did find an interesting similarity with morphine. Some people, myself included, do not benefit from it AT ALL (a morbid thought came to my mind: what if I need hospice care at the end of my life? I doubt I'd be strong enough to EXPLAIN that it's not helping me).

One other thing you might take into consideration. If I take as much as 5 mg of Vicodin, my kratom is of no use AT ALL to me for at LEAST 3 days. Talk about an opiate deterrent! Some people with chronic pain JUST LIKE MINE, find the two substances are complimentary. Not me.

Sorry this is so long. Plus my Mom keeps coming in to chat :) I'm glad she's up to chatting today :)

I'll be curious to know IF you've tried morphine (I'm guessing you probably have), did you get no relief ALSO?

And, do you ALSO find opiates ruin the benefit of kratom for you?

The really ODD part of all of this is, what are the odds that you both have the same wacky metabolism I do?!

I'm sharing this in hopes of being some help to you. And I'm sure COB will assist you after taking Sunday off for LIFE.

Please get back to this thread as things unfold. I'm interested in your personal metabolism response to morphine and whether opiates work when mixed with kratom in your case.

Things WILL be resolved favorably. COB probably took a Sunday off.

I actually sent him a text message last Sunday, we had received the package on the Saturday before. And yeah doing any kind of opiates will mess your tolerance up for a while. I had been clean off of heroin for like two weeks to start feeling it working. Had bronchitis long time ago (after being clean from heroin for a while and got prescribed liquid hydrocodone and it messed my tolerance to kratom all up. This was years ago when I had first started taking kratom. I remember I was ordering from kraken kratom and thought it was a bad batch. Crazy how one little 4 oz bottle on liquid hydro can do that. I relapsed and startig doing heroin again shortly after. Now Ive been taking kratom daily for a year with no other opiates and its helped me stay clean, some people call using kratom not being clean but I really don't give a shit about them. Kratom is the major factor in being off heroin. But yeah tolerance is all messed up after using just one time. Maybe Ill reach out to Chris again but it's already been a week since I messaged him. Its no big deal tthough.

I feel dumb for having to ask, but for the life of me I cannot find Kratom on Socals website!? Am I missing something, or do I have to sign up first?
