Welcome to the best kratom forum ever, ETC!

What Nan70 says is exactly what I have found to be true.

The fascinating thing is - none of us have the same issues, body type, ate the same food, but we all can find - with work and some frustration and expense - what works for us!

There’s nothing like it ANYWHERE in the health industry or ON THIS PLANET.

But it’s not so easy as take this amount of this leaf type from this vendor and you’ll be set.

People here are doing different stuff for different reasons and succeeding. Some are kicking a drug habit, struggling with mental challenges like depression, while others have rheumatoid arthritis, multiple autoimmune symptoms and other serious disease issues and/or disabilities and the list of issues/purpose for use goes on for DAYS!

Magical! We simply have very little in common and yet we find relief in the leaf.

Thanks for the welcome and replies.
Nan70- Exactly what I'm trying to avoid, randomly ordering samples from the multitude of vendors in the hope that I find something decent at a decent price. Kind of been a "go with what you know" thing until this point. I've found HH to be pretty consistent so far. I realize everyone's experience is unique but, I do believe there are only so many suppliers out there and I know from my limited experience that there are good and bad versions of strains out there (unless I just got really unlucky). I totally understood your ramble :)

Dr prepper- cool, just what I was looking for, an apples to apples comparison. First off, I've found that the "speed" chart they have at HH is a fairly good indicator of effect. Second, I'm not knowledgeable enough to know if some the claimed origins on their site or if the names are an actual thing or just marketing.... Is green maeng da elite a thing ?

HH strains I've tried:
<strong>Hyper</strong>- green maeng da elite- fast, clean, bordering on jittery.
<strong>Red hot</strong>- maeng da red - fast, clean, excellent
<strong>Rockstar</strong>- maeng da white- fast, clean, but jittery for me.
<strong>Ghost</strong>- Borneo super white- moderate on the fast side, clean.
HH 1- super indo green- my original favorite, moderate, clean,
HH2- super Indo red- don't like this one at all
<strong>Magic</strong>- Sumatra red- slow, relaxing, nice
<strong>Smiley</strong>- red horned - very slow, very relaxing.

Last one I tried other than the ghost and HH 1 I have is a sample pack of red hot which I liked very much. Also looking for a slower one like the magic. I don't take much and don't increase dosage (doesn't work for me) it also takes quite awhile for me to get burned out on a specific strain. Some of the super fast and super slow strains screw with my vision, can't use them. All of the cheap stuff I got last time did this regardless of the strain. Hope that explains where I'm at, if not please feel free to ask for clarification and, thanks for the tips so far :).

Makes sense. Have you viewed the ILK approved vendor list yet? Those are the top suppliers in support of quality product AND going to extra expense to help keep the leaf legal for everyone over 18.

Perhaps you should mention the issue you are using the leaf for. Or pardon me, I missed it..
I’m sure you’ll get specific vendor recommendations. Strain, I dunno. Good you got dosing figured out.

Hi Laurie. I must have been typing when you posted. Apparently I forgot how to use a BB ... I tried editing my post of the script that didn't make the words bold... Didn't work. Then I tried to reply to your post, who knows where that one went to. Oh well, I'll figure it out. I'll try again tomorrow. :)

To follow up with my personal expirence and keeping mind this is on limited use with everyone being effected differently. My favorites from HH is the hyper and HH1 for energy and mood. Magic for pain and sleep. Even though some say that strains and knowledge of origin are not actually possible, I have observed some consistencies when comparing certain strains/speeds from different vendors.

For example HH 1 they claim is a “green Indo”, I’ve noticed that I also really enjoy a green or super green Indo from other (good) vendors and that the effects are very similar. Key word being “good” vendor of course. A poor vendor really doesn’t matter what they call it it all seems to stink or produce the same effects (to me).

Another example would be with reds, I really enjoy red Sumatra, which I believe is the magic hippo, and again I have found similar effects with red sumatra from other good vendors.

So it appears some consistency can be had in this regard (afaik) weather, season or climate changes may effect these things which I can’t really comment on because I’ve only been ordering for maybe 6weeks.

If you enjoy HH1 i’d highly recommend you try the Super Green Optima from In sense. If you like HH fast like rockstar or Hyper try a White Tai from In sense, and if you like the calming sleepy reds like I do, i’d suggest a red/dark red sumatra.

So far I have nothing bad to say about any approved vendor here, but so far i particularly enjoy those mentioned above from In sense. I’m currently experimenting with samples from a few other vendors and will keep you posted if I find others which I feel are worth a shout out! Hope this helps in some small way

Thanks Dr prepper. I have to figure out how not to get timed out while I'm typing a novel. I just had another post go off in to the internet ether.

I have Green Borneo from Pa botanicals that is my go to green. The reorder was also very good.
Today I tried a Green Borneo sample I had from Kratom Eye not the same experience.

I usually order a different green than what I have when I switch up vendors. If I want Green Borneo I will just order from Pa. I have Green Thai and Green Hulu from Insense. Greens from Re-leaf(Kali and Sundra- old names) These are my best for pain, duration and mood lift.

If I decided to order from HH I would try something I haven't tried from another vendor.

I have a good routine and kratom collection and stay with certain vendors. Kratom is not so subjective that the results will be all over the place. Yes on occasion-today's borneo sample was not enough pain relief- If I just stayed with Pa's Boreno I almost always have 6 hours of duration plus some. Overall I am successfully managing pain.
I would still recommend Reds across all vendors for people who need pain management- Borneo, Bali, Thai because they are widely known to be the top choices.(I think)

Before submitting anything long try to copy your text in case , then you can paste it back in.

You can always do a few posts and break things up a bit. Reading an idea or segment is easier to process and Digest. It’s easier for the reader as well.
We will be here for you today, tomorrow, and next day. Take your time we are not in a hurry.

Cool, why is my font so small (the letters, not a euphemism :) )? Don't see a setting in personal preference.
