Otie’s

-Red Bali -
Darker reddish green ( fermented ?) powder. Smooth flavor... not bitter at all!

-I took my normal dosage and approx 25-30 minuets I started to feel solid pain relief .. which is this strains strongest quality. Great pain relief lasted 3hrs .
This is a strain that shines bright in the pain relieving department, for me not much in the moodlift and energy section.. I think mixing this with Otie’s white Hulu would bring good moodlift and energy to this nice variety. On its own it’s great at what it does, blending with a green or white... a nice full spectrum with great pain relief pick.

-White Hulu-
Mildly bitter... very fine grind, smells like yummy kratom.
Smooth progression into very clean stimulation, very clean energy , good moodlift. Didn’t feel much pain relief.. Most whites don’t give me pain relief ... no biggie !! Awesome morning wake up with zero jitters , no edginess what so ever ! This is a fine white and when blended with Otie’s super md ... a very blend with some pain relief .

-Super md-
Great energy, moderate moodlift with nice pain relief. This variety pretty successfully cut through my fatigue/ fuzzy head I was experiencing from lack of sleep. Smooth progression over 45 minuets that sustained relief for 4 hrs .!!..!!. Good daytime go to when desiring a clean stimulation with a good bit of moodlift and pain relief ... very nice variety!!

The red, white and green I tried were a great example of what these 3 colors are generally described as ...
*red was great pain relief,
*White great energy with good moodlift,
*green was both with its own signature of energy , moodlift , pain relief ,

Red Bali & white Hulu 1:2 ratio of

Very nice !!!! Great energy , very good pain relief ... moodlift very nice as well... great sense of well-being ...strong energy that had me smiling..made my second half of my workday very enjoyable. 5 hrs of relief .. great blend ... very good !!

Pretty distinct and pronounced effects from all three ... combining all 3 .... I’m very interested in that combo.... but ran out of the super Md ...


Otie’s Botanical is a newly approved ILK vendor and a welcomed addition to the family !!. Nice customer service , fast shipping and very reasonably priced products. Another solid option for great kratom. Thank you Adam and Becca , welcome to the community at ILK, we’re happy to have you on board !! (L)

I tried that same blend... closer to 1:1 though, and really liked it.

I also will try a blend of all 3.

Thanks for sharing, and thanks to the folks at Oties for not just running a business, but helping build a community. I look forward to ordering from them again. Now if I could just get passed the reverse tolerance with kava...

Haha, I'm not patient at all, but I already have 4oz, so I might as well take a Tbsp per day and wait for the magic to happen. I read on some reddits (which in and of itself was an experience that makes me appreciate this forum so much more!) and several people said it took them weeks to get there.

Several of those did admit to rushing preparation of traditional kava, and I have the instant - micronized... so hopefully I don't have to wait weeks. Eek!

I heard that with some kava extracts there isn’t a reverse tolerance issue .... but ... either way ... kava is a very nice herb ...... mix with a little coconut milk or half and half ....is using traditional root method .... might not matter with micronized !!!! Please let us know how it goes !!!
