I've compared the "Wild" Green Riau with my beloved "plantation" Green Riau and both work for my headaches. It required me to take about 70% more of the Wild to get the same headache relief. :-?

But there was a day that I had a level 8 headache and the Plantation did not completely remove it but only dropped it down to a level 4 before it returned in force later in the day. :(

So not expecting it to work I took 2g of the Wild and in 1hr the headache was gone! Apparently the Wild is unique in some fashion. At least to my body. :-bd

I am so glad that I bought 100g of the Wild and not just a sample. :cheer:

Yesterday I ordered a sample pack that included the Wild Green Riau. I ordered it for a young woman, that works with my daughter, who started suffering with headaches a few years ago. (Just like me :ohmy: ) She is a teacher but has had to stop due to the amount of headaches she is getting.
She also has tried all the things I had tried plus she did the Botox shots in the scalp, which did work for a short time.
I will give it to her when I get it with instructions on how to take it. I am hoping and praying that it will work for her as it has for me. :-bd
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. ;)

Its nice when people try the less popular ones.....

and really find out how good they really are!

especially when we need to get away from normal strains and aren't sure wheat to choose

Thanks Babel- 17

Hmmm, the Red Sumatra and Green Riau are like two selections from the same album, both exquisite.

I'm revisiting this thread so as to say that the trial period is basically over, and to note that, coincidentally or otherwise, my overall usage of Tea dropped a notch during the duration of actively sampling it. I log all of that, and I just now checked back as far as Christmas Day.

Lol, I'm not really intending to keep it there, but it's nice to know that this can help in doing that. Honorable mention going to Stem and Vein, Hirsuta, and Javanica, with that.

I see their being helpful as relevant to why this Gold Leaf Botanicals Green Riau has been working so well for me. There are lots of alkaloids out there in the wilds, and among the many plantations, and it's nice to be able to appreciate them.

Yadda, yadda, yadda, I'll be keeping this in my rotation for it's mood enhancing, and anxiolytic, properties, to be used as I Need/Want (lol, I got to recycle that!).


And it will also be a heavy part of any efforts to reduce or maintain tolerance, in conjunction with Stem and Vein, Hirsuta, and Javanica, in addition to all the other usual stuff.

I'm moving on to trying out some new stuff stuff now. On deck being the In Sense Red Sumatra. :)

That sounds pretty interesting Babel-17...

For me Green Riau (wild or Plantation) mid-afternoons are perfect...
so i can still rest in the evening and helps me get thru the end of my work day.

I am curious how it might be with maybe a White Maeng Da or even a White Thai!

Let us know how your blends go.

Thanks everyone

Now, I'm taking this mostly for a positive, healthy, mood, so YMMV, but I think I'm seeing this work better when part of a rotation of mellow strains. It works really well with whites to create a blend with its own personality, but the subtle parts of it that I most appreciate get drowned out.

Not so if taken with a mellow Bali is my experience. The "hand-off" from the Green Riau to a Bali doesn't cause a change worth noting so much.

So, for me, if blending with whites I'd used a higher percentage of the Green Riau. P.S. The Red Sumatra is on my to do list for using in the rotation with this.

Thanks EVERYONE!

The amazing properties of those ones that aren't always noticed, are amazing sometimes...
either because they are not the norm or just because they are good in their own ways. =D>

So much information, thank you, i am sure many others are glad to see something different that is good.

Thank You! :-bd
