How very interesting! I am off to investigate the difference between wild and plantation grown kratom now. Thank you for the reply and I hope you are off to a good start this morning.

Everyone on the approved vendor list. :lol:

My favorite has always been Insense Botanicals.
Their Green Riau was the first kratom to be able to take away the chronic headaches I have been getting for about 2.5 years now.

There are a couple of other strains from different vendors that also work on the headaches but just not as good as the Riau does from Insense.
I just got some of the Green Riau from Insense's sister company Goldleaf Botanicals and I need to see how it compares. The Goldleaf site sells wild grown kratom and the Insense site sells plantation grown.
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. ;)

Hey guise! I've got another lil review from my beloved PA Botanicals as I've been able to try a few more of their strains and would like to share my experiences as well as update you on my previous reviews.

Sigh...Green Emerald..my new go-to day time strain for sure, no question..along with Jessie's Blend which I will rotate with the Green Emerald. I found my two daytime strains and I think they are both blends! Who'da thunk it? The Green Emerald is my first experience with greens and I'm blown away. This kratom has such a smooth and soothing character to it. For me, it imparts the most beautiful uplift along with pain relief and has longer legs than the others I've tried. I've never had such a beautifully balanced experience with kratom. I'd always been afraid to veer away from reds for my chronic pain conditions but now I feel like I've been missing out on a lot of functional relief! This one starts out very uplifting yet mellow and ends up more relaxing for me towards the end of the duration of effects. Does anyone here happen to know what greens this is a blend of? I assume it is a blend but I am not too certain.

I'm still in the process of trying out PA Botanicals Bali and will report back in regards to that strain when I have a better feel for it. So far, it seems like an evening strain for me.

I tried their Akuamma and yes, it is too bitter for me to mix in water like I do my kratom but even when I capped it, it just didn't jive well with my body chemistry and left me weirdly depressed. I gave this to a friend who is also a chronic pain patient to give it a shot. I couldn't attest to its pain relieving properties due to my reaction to the substance. Ah well. You win some, you lose some.

I am still a huge fan of Jessie's Blend for daytime. I am curious to try Kurt's Blend too now that I know my body loves the greens as well. Rotating that with the Emerald has been wonderful for me and is controlling my daytime spasticity and pain very well. I've been able to get through my days with motivation and unimpairment. The Fibro Blend is such a one two punch for pain. I like using it sparingly so when I do need a bit extra, it's there for me. I can take this one daytime or nighttime if I adjust the dose accordingly. The red borneo is still a favorite of mine for afternoon / evening as it feels very enriched and offers excellent pain relief. This one also helps with my nerve pain which is rare for me. A real winner that red borneo. Like I said before, I will report back when I have more experience with the Bali from PA Botanicals. I am so looking forward to dealing with that fine vendor more. Now that I'm an established customer with the e check, my payment and shipping gets processed lightening fast!! I think my next order for "testing" will be Kurt's Blend, another green whether it be the Green Machine, Green Malay, Super Green Indo or Green Borneo (If anyone has any suggestions on another green to try if I love the Emerald Green, please lay it on me!) and the Ultra Maeng Da.

I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday morning! I know those two words (wonderful and Monday) don't really go together but Jessie's Blend has me off to a good start. Thank you kratom. Please don't ever get banned in TX. We all should be able to have access to nature's medicine!

After more burns with the Vietnam, I'm seeing just how potent it is and have needed to decrease my dose by a third to get where I wanna be with this one. Still, as much as the effects are indeed useful as a very functional nootropic, it does not have the pain relief I need to get through the day. This one it the first from PAB that I may not keep in the rotation but it doesn't take away from the great quality of this leaf. Still great success with my chronic pain with the other strains purchased from PAB.

I received my next order from PA Botanicals very fast once the e check cleared. Let me just say, thus far, the e check thing has been no problem at all. Just make sure you place your order a few days before you need your botanicals so the e check has a chance to post to your bank account. For me, it has been 3 business days each time. When I email Jessica at PAB with a screenshot of the e check (I'm of the mindset that I trust this vendor enough to do this and have had no issues), my package shipped out the same day both days and got to me in 2-3. Fantastic for great prices and potent product.

The Vietnam is a very unique strain. I feel like this one has full nootropic benefits for me plus some pain relief. The nootropic benefits were super noticeable and sets this one apart from other strains. It is a great daytime strain for me that goes where you need it to go. My health conditions give me bad fatigue and a cloudy mind, this strain helps me a lot with that in a very balanced and clear way. This strain also has the longest legs of any strain I've tried. Towards the end of the duration, I get more of a soothing and relaxing aroma. I am happy to have it in my arsenal and am intrigued about the prospect of blending it after more burns.

The Red Borneo is wonderful for evening or for days when the pain is just horrendous. Compared to other Red Borneos from other vendors I've tried, this one seems naturally enriched with alkaloids for ultimate warmth and analgesia. My new favorite Red Borneo so far for sure.

The White / Gold is interesting to me. I never had much experience with whites or golds in the past as I was always under the impression that I "should" stick to reds for my chronic pain. I encourage everyone to experiment with different strains because I've absolutely found that outside of the red veins, there is a wealth of pain relief potential. This one is nice. Smooth, uplifting aroma from the white with a soothing undercurrent from the gold that gives it slightly longer legs than a white on its own. I do get some pain relief from this one as well and am VERY interested in blending this with a more heavy red for motivation with my pain relief.

I do not work for PAB..lol...it may seem that way but I have just loved every strain I've tried so far and am so looking forward to trying more strains from PAB as well as reporting on them here for you guys. The next order I'm thinking will be the Yippee Hippee Blend, another oz of the Red Fibro (I'm thinking this is one to ALWAYS have on hand), Red Maeng Da, CBD isolate and Akuamma. A bit of a larger order but I trust this vendor and am getting so much benefit from their products. They are making my quality of life a bit better and for that, I'm eternally grateful. Thank you PA Botanicals!! I'm loving yous guise right nah! xoxoxoxoxooxx

After more days burning the White Dragon Botanicals kratom, I am sad to say I will be burning them no more. Every amount burned, no matter how low, causes bad eye pressure / pain..that coupled with the fact that the store front feels a bit too corporate for my taste and the kratom seems sub par as far as the perceived limited spectrum of alkaloids, I have to say I absolutely do not recommend them.

I'm still crazy about PA Botanicals however. LOVE! Got another package coming from them today. More oz bags to try and see what works best. Can't wait. <3
