Hello. I'm new to Kratom and using this fine herb for a replacement to cannabis use. I'm using Remarkable Herbs Red Maeng Da from the head shop which is nicely sedating, and also have the notorious OPMS Silver in capsule form, also MD which is too stimulating.

I'm looking for a vendor that sells variety packs as I'm testing reds, whites and greens for Sedation, anxiety, mood and ADHD. I'm expecting to order a kilo divided into a few different flavors. What websites are recommended for a balance of price, potency and varieties?

Welcome to the best kratom forum ever, Azathothoccult!

The VENDOR LIST is chock full of wonderful options. Other reviews are here to refer to as well, and other members will be along to offer assistance.

It helps us to know if you are treating a particular condition, like say, depression or whatever. It’s not necessary to share that, but it helps us guess at suggestions more suitable for you.

Glad you found us. Can I ask what brought you to the very best kratom forum ever? LOL

Well I'm expecting to use 2-3 different strains daily. In the day I desire focus without overstimulation. Another strain, possibly a midday dose for being social and lifting anxiety , and finally a strong sedating night strain for a final night time meditation, relaxation and sleep. I much prefer powder over capsules . I'd like to keep my spending to an ideal $50-65 a month.

Hello,
Kratom can be unique to each individual in desired results.Now saying that.
I am going to link the guide
www.ilovekratom.com/forum/kratom-discuss...-oldies#.XHGpXohKiUn
You sound like you have researched a lot already and need to make the buying plunge that's why you are here in this topic.

Quick kratom general tips-
White for flight
Green in between
Red for bed- bentaungies can be the most sedating reds.
A scale is a good idea for using powder.

I use greens for day energy,focus and pain relief, and I switch to a red at night.
You will need to find the right dose size that works for you that will help determine how much you will be spending.

These are approved vendors on our forum
www.ilovekratom.com/kratom-vendors

I have used
Goldleaf/Insense Botanicals
discount codes -
$89 Kilos:
$89ALWAYS
10% off all the time:
ILKFORME10%
Re-leaf LLC
Inland Botanicals
Canopy (type speciosa in search bar for kratom list)budget friendly
Pa Botanicals
Most offer weekly sales and rewards points that help offset cost when you sign up for an account with them.
Some current codes are posted on this forum. You can always e-mail and ask if they have a current code for ILK forum members.

Forum Favorites
Pharmacy Drop Out
Christopher's Organic Botanicals<---check discount topic i think he has a newbie discount code

If you are paying headshop prices I think you will pleased with the quality and the pricing overall with these vendors.

There are many other vendors I haven't tried I just want to list mine to give you an idea.

Which kratom would I use for my artistic hobbies? To achieve focus and relaxation but not overstimulation or oversedation?

"Which kratom would I use for my artistic hobbies?"
This is a good question and very hard to answer.
Kratom varies from season to season and vendor to vendor. It all becomes very subjective.
Joe from re-leaf touches on this very debatable subject
www.ilovekratom.com/forum/rate-a-vendor/...start=0#.XHLhTohKiUk
Also you can read information on Re-leaf www.re-leaf.us/phenotypesrule.html about this.

With that being said
I have balance with Green strains and most Malays do not over stimulate me. Reds can open up a relaxed vibe if you dose on the lower end and stay away from the most sedating Reds like bentuangies.

Whites are typically energetic, I find them over stimulating, but if you find a good one it will provide the most motivation and focus of the three strains.

Some vendors you can message and ask recommendation as long as you stay away from asking medical advice.

When you start sampling, taking notes can help, eventually you develope a kratom collection around favorite vendors and samples.

In regards to the vendors listed above, I browsed canopy and even filled my shopping cart just to find they don't take credit cards, which is a necessity!

I would mix a green with a red. If you’re new, definitely dose on the lower end. You can ALWAYS ADD MORE later, but one over-use and your day is essentially done.

As far as who to buy from, I trust all but two vendors on the list (their link doesn’t work, so you won’t accidentally order from them).

Kratom is a plant based product. Each batch affects each person differently. I find my usual personal stash can vary in results from one day to the next. It really depends on what I ate YESTERDAY and what I have not yet eaten, how much sleep I got, etc.

Reliable results are impossible. BUT. That’s why we work so hard on this vendor list.

Check out some recent ads they post in threads to include discount codes.

None will make you feel euphoric or hallucinate. Whatever the eff dee yay is taking to get those results is NOT what we use here on ILK.

Keep in mind the information posted by Nan70 about the different strains. That’s about as well into the future as we can see.

Everyone is doing self experimenting and sharing the results. It’s the magic of the adventure, not the magic in the product itself.

Please post on how you’re doing with deciding. We cannot do the work for you. You gotta pick and then check back before you pull the trigger if you’re really unclear. We ARE here to help, but it’s best to have self responsibility with choosing out of the list.

Hint: Type in vendor names in the search for RECENT discount codes they’ve posted. They also issue them in email replies if you can stand the wait for an email. It’s Sunday and most vendors WILL REPLY but maybe not as quickly as M-F.

The credit card issue is very fluid = changes from minute to minute. Hang in there. Look at how payment is accepted and THEN shop. Take your time. Nothing is shipping out today.

Hold my hand...

So it just changes every hour or so to avoid scrutiny from the Eff Dee Ayyy?
