Hi Folks! What a great forum to have as a resource!
I have a particular strain and supplier for Premium Bali ... they are honest, efficient, and the strain is better for my purposes than any I found. That's the Good News. The Bad News is it's twice the price of everyone else's.

I'm in search of another Kratom that "matches me" as well as this one.
I don't need euphoria, I don't need help sleeping, or being happy.
I'm a 70 year old full time high level Surfer, who needs to relieve serious joint and muscular aches, as well as a back that can't find a relaxed position in the evening or at night.
The causes I pretty much know are age, and surfing my ass off every day there's surf.

I'm up for some Vendors to suggest their best Bali. But also I need to say 20-40 grams is what I consider a sample size. My single dose is usually 10 grams of powder in capsules, divided up over a couple of hours.

If anyone reading this post sees a suggestion and strongly agrees, please chime in to let me know. But if you disagree and think a certain strain is not all its being promoted as, message me privately.

This forum is a friendly place, worth keeping that way.
Thanks!!

I took a Green Borneo the other day from Pa Botanicals that was just all function and no fuss. I actually found myself saying this is how I should feel everyday when I got into work.
This vendor has excellent "work load" greens. Emerald Green is another favorite.

Green Hulu or Green Thai from Insense Botancials are a few of my other favorites.
I get good duration out of these.

I take to manage spinal arthritis, I spend a lot of time on my feet and for work, I just want function.

This is what works for me. You must know kratom is a bit subjective but I thought I would recommend these for you anyway.

You don't necessarily need to find a Bali, which will not be the same from vendor to vendor anyway.

Best!

Hello Oldfartsurfer..... WELCOME!

Nan70 suggested a few greens, Green Thai has very clean and clear properties...Green Hulu is a favorite of many (L)

I might also suggest a Blend we have called Red Dragon. A blend of 4 reds that work well together, to provide a Harmonious Balance to bring forth a Sense of Well Being that's definately Unique.

Might be just what you are looking for..... as well as a Regular Green Maeng Da (not Premium),
or maybe even our Green, White, or Red Bentuangie, which help many become centered again.

We have a pretty vast selection on either of our websites at:

www.insensebotanicals.com (plantation straight from Indonesia)

or (L)

www.goldleafbotanicals.net (Wilds - hand harvested from deep in the jungles of Indonesia)

while the same type of each strain is similar, be it Wild or Plantation, they are definitely different.
Which is why they are two separate companies.
Some prefer the Wilds yet others prefer the plantation.

We also carry Green Bali Wild at Gold Leaf Botanicals.

Everyone is different on what they want/like :-?

If you give us a call, we would Love to talk with you and possibly see if we can help you....
and YES, we <strong>do</strong> answer the phones LOL

We look forward to speaking with anyone that has any questions >:D

We will do our best to answer them as much as we can.... as approved vendors.

Thank you for being here and being a part of today's
Alternative Solution!

Thanx

Hi Nan 70! (Warning and Apologies to the group for such a long "Thank You" note, but Nan70 is such a wonderful asset to this community, I want to acknowledge that).

You always seem to have what I like to call a "linear perspective" ... Paying such a close attention to the writer's actual question or issue, and then coupling the "problem" with a solution, making sure folks understand its your subjective experience..... And as subjective as how each of our systems respond, we still have to start somewhere when we reach out for input from others. And I realize, how I ask my question is just as important, if not more important than the answer. I really appreciate that you recognized and spoke directly to my priorities and reasons for searching out a less expensive alternative to a really dependable strain I have been relying on for several years.
You and I collaborated in this forum in recent past, to reach out to an individual with far more serious problems than just my own search for the "perfect green". Your writing to that person was very succinct and helpful, and mine may have helped too, but was a lot of writing to say just a little bit!
I ordered the Green Borneo from PA Botanical.
Right after I ordered, I did see your Supplier, "Intense", wrote a reply too. And while I thought some of his suggestions were counter to what I said I did need and didn't need ... I get it ..... this is his opportunity to speak to the larger audience with a broader set of suggestions and descriptions.
And I am super impressed that he is directly accessible by phone! I will definitively take advantage of that.
So thanks again Nan70!
I'll be trying the Borneo Green out and reporting back to you.
I am truly blessed with my own issues, compared to your health issues and others I read about.
I don't need a euphoric high, stimulate my sense of well being, or help getting to sleep, or waking up.
I'm a boring surf bum, who wakes up at 5 am, decides if I work that day based on the ocean conditions, and falls asleep by 8 pm! I had a choice a three decades ago, between ganja and alcohol or surfing .... and I made my choice. But at 70, the body still wants to tell me "WTF Dude, did you just put me through!" ...... And Kratom was made for that, ... at least for me.

Kindness is always the answer,
And Gratitude is always an option.

Oldfartsurfer.....

please keep in mind, that vendors are not allowed to talk directly about some of the gifts from this amazing plant...
i simply made an attempt to describe some of the beautiful properties of this gift of a plant.

We hope to hear from you someday soon, should you have any questions.

We believe customer service is a keystone to having satisfied customers.

Enjoy Life....ALWAYS!
Kratom On

I will take the compliments thank you guys!

I hope you like the Green Borneo. I have purchased at least two different times (batches) and its been very consistent.
That's another issue with Kratom sometimes you go to order your same favorite and its not the same.
Also you can have 20 people love one vendor's Green Malay, then I will order a sample and I am the party pooper who didn't like it. Its kratom, that's what can happen lol.
I have best results with Kratom that provides anti inflammatory alkoloids. I hope you get the same physical lift I get from the Borneo. Usually from my arthritis I have heaviness in my legs that takes all morning to shake out but with this strain I am leaping up stairs and racing to work.
All greens give me a 20/30 minute mood uplift(honeymoon) before settling in to business. Think its just me. What matters is being able to have optimal function for a good duration. I do not like feeling "heady" whites will do that to me. Green Borneo is a straight forward work horse, I hope you get a great batch and similar results.

Vendor's have to shy away from anything resembling medical advice. There is a sort of code kratomnites have to decipher.

I don't use any Red's for work but I never tried the Red Dragon blend I do believe Michelle uses this successfully for a work day blend.
Green Hulu is in my rotating stash, right now its been out of my line up so I reduce my tolerance to its effectiveness. It's very good for pain relief, I remember it has a quick onset which is good for on the go.
Green Thai has very clean and clear properties..
I would say that Thai has steady energy, nothing overbearing, no heady feelings and even steady mood lift. Good for more physical days. Insense also has one of the faster order to shipping times.
FYI-
If you ordered from Pa using e-checks, new customers take some time to clear before they ship, up to a week.

Hi!
I had a direct conversation with a Supplier and it was REALLY informative! Red or Dark Red Maeng Da was suggested as a particularly strong analgesic, but reserved for end of the day/bed time.
Nan, Maeng Da has been conspicuously absent from your strains of choice, .... and my only experience with Maeng Da has been just one strain of green, that was not analgesic and stimulating in a "Yerba Mate kind of way".
Regardless, I'm going to try a significant enough size of the Red or Dark Red Maeng Da to give it a fair test. The Supplier I spoke to is either terrifically authentic, or the worlds most knowledgeable pretender (he is not a pretender!). But I'm curious as to your experience Nan.
