Goodness goodness..have I been trying some interesting and quality vendors / kratom lately! I had ordered from PAB last week as I was nearly out of my batch of old kratom that I cracked into after my abdominal surgery. I have a lifetime of chronic pain from Dystonia and a condition that grows tumors on and inside my body. I decided to hunt down a physical store in town that could hold me over till my PAB order came in. I ended up at White Dragon Botanicals which is a new store in town. Walking into the place felt..very corporate and imo, kind of off putting. The folk inside were very kind and helpful though. They sell their ounces all at the same price..across the board of strains. I picked up a red bali and one of their Feelin' Fine blends with red and gold strains. Both were strong aromas. The red bali was more uplifting than I'm used to but very good and pain relieving. The other blend was nice and slow..soothing and good for afternoon use. I initially dosed a bit much with these as I wasn't expecting the strength of the aromas..but to me, it almost feels as if the effects were not as full spectrum as other vendors. I am still very happy with the purchase and am glad the store is available in a pinch if I'm waiting for an order. I will most likely use these to blend with other strains. I love to blend!

PA Botanicals on the other hand... what a pleasure to deal with their exceptional customer service and very full spectrum, potent plain leaf and blends! I just ordered more now that I know what wonderful quality and service they have. I have burned the Red Fibro and Jessie's Blend. Red Fibro is super potent pain relief that has long legs. It doesn't knock me on my butt and allows for me to stay busy as well as help my chronic pain beautifully. Jessie's Blend is a fabulous blend of white and red I believe.. great for pain relief and a bit of motivation for when I have to leave the house. I just put in an order for the Red Borneo, White Gold and Vietnam. I enjoy buying by the oz so I can keep changing up the strains I burn. Hope this was helpful!

Now that I've had a few more burns, I have to say Jessie's Blend is something really special..and I'm not just saying that cause my name is Jessie! ;) Highly recommend.

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

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 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.
