Hey guys,

I've been lurking these forums for a while but never needed to post anything so I just created a new account.

I haven't bought UEI since the original source of UEI stopped selling it years ago. My question is, who has the best or comparable UEI to how it was back in the day by SS.

Thanks for any advice or recommendations!

Welcome to the best kratom forum ever, Nhjohnnyo!

Very subjective question. Every batch is so freaking unique times a zillion.

Thanks for posing that question here!

PDO shows a UEI on their website. $45 for 50 grams or $80 for 100 grams.
I’ve never tried it so I don’t know if that is good or bad.
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. ;)

I am very curious about this myself. Let’s keep this post rolling and get some feedback! I am about to order a couple testers so I will post my thoughts. A lot of the vendors claim they have quality UEI but it’s not in comparison to the real OG UEI..

If I’m going to order an Ultra Enhanced strain I get it from PDO. Love his products, the in depth descriptions of each strain, the great customer service, and I respect his knowledge and commitment to excellence. Oftentimes extracts are denoted by ridiculous numbers, for example 100x Extract. I have confidence that the numbers denoted for his extracts is accurate and aren’t exaggerated to be more appealing.

I’ve tried all the Ultra Enhanced strains as well as the 49% Alkaloid Crystalline Kratom Extract and the Unyielding 20x Extract w/ 10% Pure Alkaloid Content Full Spectrum.

I expected to prefer the 49% Crystalline Extract but I liked the Unyielding 20x Extract much more.
I was shocked by this so I shot Jeff an email asking what the consensus was on these two. He said it varies by individual but most people prefer one or the other. I thought perhaps I’d been usied it wrong but I didn’t. Jefff told me that he prefers the Crystalline while his wife swears by the 20x Extract. So each to their own, eh?

My order of preference for the UE strains:

1) UE White Horned Leaf Cambodian MD. This also surprised me. I thought for sure I’d like the UE Red Vein Indo better, especially since at that time Red’s were what I used mostly. 10/10

2) Enhanced Pink Bali. I Knew I’d like this since I love both the Red Bali & White Horned MD from Kali. I’m pretty sure it has some of the FS Unyielding 20xs Extract in this plus some additional alkalioids. Please correct me if I’m wrong. Tiffany, Jeff’s wife came up with this blend for conditions she has that I also suffer from. 9/10

3) UE Red Vein Indo. 8/10

4) UE Green vein. Now it’s Green Horned. I’m not sure if it was that same strain when I ordered it? 7.3/10

OMG in the middle of this post I accidentally pasted an extremely personal email. Thank God I noticed before submitting. I would have been sooo embarrassed!!

I know this isn't UEI but I ordered some Gold Reserve from Herbal Salvation (Viable Solutions) that was definitely
on point! Haven't had it in years but when I did I used to get it from fourwindsbotanicals and herb research. Just be weary, if anyone tries it remember .50 is plenty with mixed plain leaf! Potent stuff! Thanks Viable Solutions!

Thanks Laurie! I don't know for sure but from what I heard there was only one guy making the really good OG UEI and supplying SS and some of the other vendors and then for some reason it fell off. SS just stopped selling it and some of the other vendors I was using claimed to but it was just is inferior quality. I don't really know for sure what happened but I'm glad to have some new ones to try here soon.

Thanks Usernametaken and great explanation on your favorites! I will have to give PDO a try for sure and try the ones you mentioned.

Thanks Nhjohnyo, I actually just ordered some Gold Reserve myself for the first time from Herbal Salvation yesterday. I never tried it but I heard great things. Especially combined with their Plantation Maeng Da doing similar to what you mentioned at a 0.5-0.75 GR to 3-4 gram PMD ratio.

Lastly, after a lot of research I have heard a ton of great things about Magnum Opus. Both about their extracts and UEMD. I have orders into both HS and MOB so I will chime back in once I have some real feedback to offer.

I had been wondering if Herbal Salvation was still in business. Long ago I placed a large order but when I went to order again they were out of everything. Do you find ordering from them difficult? Maybe it’s changed but the only way I could access them to order was through a link on
my email from my previous order.

They were one of the companies involved in the salmonella outbreak so that might explain why the were out of just about everything. They had the Gold Reserve but last time I checked they were out of that too.

I never ordered the Gold Reserve I remember it being quite expensive. It’s a liquid, correct? Does the dropper have increments for measuring? Sorry but I’ve never used a liquid or any enhanced leaf or extracts except from PDO.

HS has 2 other kratom strains not sure if enhanced but they definitely cost more. Do you know which ones I’m referring to? Oh just reread your post the PMD was one. Do you know offhand what the other one is?

They’re a large volume vendor. I usually stick with small family run businesses. However, I was happy with my purchase and the prices. I remember they had some policy that after first order you had to order one of the more expensive strains. Sorry details are sketchy since it was quite awhile ago. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.

I’ve always been happy with quality of PDO. I find reviews to be difficult maybe I should’ve elaborated on the effects I felt with each enhanced strain//blend even though individual experiences vary greatly. Every item is top notch especially the extracts. The fact that the 49% Crystalline didn’t have much effect for me is no reflection on PDO. It’s just my metabolism and the strange way a lot of herbs and meds affect me! I was so worried about taking too much since it’s so strong, lol. I started off with extremely small dose mixed with plain leaf.

Welcome Nhjohnyo and Influencer to this amazing forum and wonderful group of people. PDO is an approved vendor and you really can’t go wrong dealing with Jeff. He takes his time to find the best of the best.

If either of you or anyone else tries PDO’s enhanced products let us know what you think. I’d be interested to hear how his products compare to other ones on the market. I’m not familiar with SS. Is it a tincture?

Wasn’t OPMS the first tincture. I had a conversation with Jeff @ PDO about this product. I guess the formulation was changed after the original. Supposedly not as potent. Idk if you can still get this item. Forgive my ignorance. I’d be happy to be enlightened.

Side note: I rated the Enhanced Green Horned the lowest since for the most part Green’s aren’t my favorites. I prefer White and Red strains and often get “opposite” results. It certainly keeps things interesting as I never know whether I’ll be sedated or stimulated. Also this was the first time I rated anything by numbers.

What’s MOB stand for? Thanx :cheer:

Take Care!!

Hey username,

I believe MOB stands for magnum opus botanical,!could be wrong though...

I haven’t tried many extracts so I don’t have much to add to the conversation, I’ve made a couple alcohol/ water extractions where I evaporated the solvents(alcohol) and water, dried and combined them, ( capped I’d use a few to boost my powder dose ... pretty effective I’d say) and tinctures, most of which I was satisfied with, one batch was very stimulating, my most recent very sedating, after soaking in alcohol id make a round of tea with the left over material , evaporated that and was left with a resin/ Caramell like extract that would not dry all the way for the life of me ... I’ve always liked doing these kinds of projects in all sorts of areas throughout my life with herbal remedies, should have studied plant medicine as a career and got paid to do it , though I’m very happy doing these without pay, just satisfaction.

Take care
