"The best part of waking up ..." What Kratom did you put in your cup?
Today I felt inspired to counter intuitively use In Sense Botanicals Red Horn. It's got more going on than pain relief and it's great for when trying to be care free. I combined it with a bit of In Sense's Ultra Enhanced Fuzzy Dragon, and though the weather outside features cloudy skies, I'm feeling the sunshine. 🙂
What was in your cup, today?
Hey mr Babel 🙂
That enhanced fuzzy dragon is special ! Sounds like a great combo .
Today I started off with Smiley Time Herbal “Og Green Kali “. It provided a warm and uplifting vibe. I’m a big fan of STH.... this company has it goin on!
Second in the lineup was “Green Grandad” from Kratom Delivery ....a new vendor I’ve recently met that started up in Southern California delivering kratom to your front door. I was very impressed and quickly placed a order for more. His green Borneo and green Malay are also excellent.
Third up is Fused Flora’s “white Takengon” .... gave me well rounded effects shining brightest in clean energy and a great amount of clarity.Also loosened up my body , reducing the pain in my neck and lower back. Def a special white !
That’s what was in my cup today lol, but truthfully, I’ve been on a solid sublingual regimen for a bit now .... it’s been a good route of intake that’s been treating me well.
Hope all is good with everyone... was a hot day in my zone , looking forward to a beautiful summer along with some iced kratom tea 🍂😎

I still have most of the Otie's Super Green Malay I bought in October 2019 as part of a four way split kilo.
I opened it up today and it still smells fresh.
I hardly ever take it as my first Kratom of the day, but that's what I did, along with 200 mg. from my bag of Ultra Enhanced Fuzzy Dragon. That was a hundred gram bag, so it was both an excellent purchase and one that is lasting.
Positive energy ftw (for the win)! 🙂
I recently cleaned up all the bags on my kitchen table and wow, it's nice to know I have so much Kratom. And that's on top of Hudson Valley Botanicals (Garuda Kratom) Green Hulu, and the Kratom Shop Green Hulu, and Green Maeng Da, I stored away after buying it just over two years ago. All "Olde Skool" Kratom, and very well rounded.
I kept some of each of them for easy access in Zip-lock bags.
Today I again started with an Otie's Kratom as my first serving of the day, again combined with a bit of some Ultra Enhanced Fuzzy Dragon.
I'd bought this bag as part of the same split that the Super Green Malay derived from, and it's similarly fresh. A bit less of an impact on the body, a bit more of an effect for uplifting mood, and mental energy. It worked like a smooth elevator taking me to the next floor up, from "Reception" to "Entertainment", lol. It does offer decent pain relief as well, something I forget to mention when it's not on my mind.
But it's not all that different, and since presumably Otie's used the same supplier for it as the SGM, this White Indo might have grown and been processed in a not to different fashion.
I'd say I've had amazing luck with my Kratom buys, and in a way I have, but since I spend a good deal of time checking out all the info I can before making a purchase, it's probably not mostly about luck. And of course the resources of this forum and other places has been key.
Today I went with The Kratom Syndicate's White Sulawesi, and a dollop of In Sense Botanicals Ultra Enhance Fuzzy Dragon. Very smooth uptake of mood and energy! Long lasting too, though I'm about ready for some Otie's Super Green Malay.
I couldn't pass up their birthday celebration sale which ends at midnight, as it roughly coincides with my birthday, and a kilo of super green malay with free shipping for $66.00 made it a very justifiable present to myself.
The recent reviews of it from trusted posters has me thinking that it's as good as ever. I still have a lot left of my bag of it from October 2019, so I'm thinking that I won't even test it, at least not until news of this new BS of the government cracking down on Kratom hopefully doesn't amount to much.
I hate to think that "factory sealed" bags might be the way to go for a while. 🙁
I can't really process right now the possibility of it ever becoming illegal to transport state to state ones own Kratom. God forbid just possessing it becomes illegal.
Time for more brave Congresscritters to step up, like last time, and tell the FDA to frack off.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, @babel-17 🎂🎈🎉 !!
I have recently enjoyed Vanilla and Peach flavored kratom teas from Top Trees Herbs and my ever-reliable dark red md plantation from InSense Botanicals and the occasional addition of “red” stem n vein from Tea Time Botanicals!
Special thanks to @somethingsacred Brandon for hooking me up with the tea connection! Yeah! 👍 🫖
Have a wee bit better day!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY @babel-17

In order to easily ensure I was rotating my Kratom I took most of the bags of various offerings from various vendors, put them in a big trash bag, and put that away in a closet.
After a few weeks I brought them out, put away what I'd been using, and went to see if by using them again after a few weeks off it would make a difference.
It sort of did, in that my memory of the effects got pleasantly refreshed.
I went down memory lane and revisited four of my five Soflo Kratoms. That includes Gold Maeng Da, Yellow Banjar, Yellow Viet Nam, and Gold Bali. I still have Red/Chocolate Bentaguie to re-experience.
All four lived up to what I and others have said about them in the past. I'll say that all four are "feel good" Kratoms, with none being either particularly fast, or particularly slow.
The Yellow Banjar possibly benefited the most from the break, and maybe also from taking it after the Gold Maeng Da. It provided a bigger overall boost to mood, thinking, and energy, than I remembered it having, and it also lasted longer than I recalled from last using it.
The Gold Maeng Da was stellar, as it was really potent but so well balanced that none of the effects drowned out the others. I got pain relief but also energy, an upbeat mood but also a sense of calm.
The Yellow Viet Nam was on point for energy with pain and inflammation relief. Not jittery energy, but in the groove. The Gold Bali was what you hope to get from top grade Gold Bali, lots of soothing relief but no sedation, and a mellow mood.
I'm looking forward to taking the Red/Chocolate Bentaguie as the last serving of the day, as I remember its effects lingering on well into the next day.
Today I started off with Texas Family Harvest's Sunrise Suma, and having taken a break from then using it again was good for reestablishing its status as a contender for the title of the Miss Congeniality of Kratoms. There's nothing not to like about it, as long as you're not in need of serious pain relief, or a serious kick to the butt energy wise, though it's certainly not a slow Kratom.
I hope to spend a serious amount of time revisiting all of my In Sense Botanicals and Gold Leaf Botanicals before too long. How I rotate them during the day will be worth some thought, lol. 🙂
You have inspired me to pull out some SoFlo stock ! Nick had some amazing batches.
Thx for the check in with your kratom endeavors, always enjoyable to read !
Today the kratom that shined brightest for me was Fused Flora’s green Maeng da. Stellar! The boost of sustained energy with full body relief and impressive moodlift ... helped guide me into a “I feel great “ zone . Lovely . I keep telling myself I’m going to take a break from buying new leaf .... which btw, I needed up ordering a kilo from Otie’s lol, super green Malay ... in the end , I couldn’t help myself ...I have no regrets about it 😉

In Sense Botanicals White Hulu, so it was plantation grown. Lol, I still have some left from a sampler, and I'm thinking of next taking the Gold Leaf Botanicals, wild grown, White Hulu as I'm enjoying this serving and I figure now is an excellent time to compare them. I bought the Gold Leaf variety as part of a sample pack.
The In Sense White Hulu is so far like a long arc of increasing beneficial effects. I guess part of the credit for that goes to the grind. It's "melt in your mouth" good, but with some substance to it, and it has a bite that is intriguing but still indicative of a potent White. Quite pleasant mouth feel, but still tasting like Kratom, just not grassy at all.
Pretty darn fast but with enough feel good alkaloids to keep that from causing concern that it could be too much of a good thing.
Elevated Botanicals White Borneo. A really agreeable White, though not the fastest. If I had to consume the same White, and only a White, for days on end then this would be a contender. It provides the full range of Kratom's desirable effects, it's just that those related to getting the boost associated with Whites appear to benefit from deriving from an alkaloid balance that favors them.
Having said that, I think I'll hunt up a middle speed In Sense or Gold Leaf to follow up on this. Mmm, I hear Golden Benulu calling out to me! lol 🙂
Garuda/Hudson Valley Botanicals (both names are on the bag, HVB as the distributor) Typhon (a blend).
Long legs to this, and while it provides nice clear energy it excels with its impartation of a feeling of calm, and in smoothing away physical discomfort.
I'm glad I took it first thing as it's providing a good "base coat" for taking additional Kratom. In Sense Botanicals Gold Indonesia was already on deck, ready to go, and I expect that to dovetail nicely into the Typhon.
7ohm/Sevenohm Green Bar Bar Hulu, and it's really uplifting. It seems that what I have might have been from their 2017 stock, which is now depleted. They had problems from burglaries, things got bad in Seattle as the rioting caused crime to soar as the police became overwhelmed, but 7ohm has mostly recovered, thankfully.
DoubleMHerbal site is showing a contest by Southeast Botanicals.
It is for 12 kilos of kratom all delivered at the same time to the winner. 😱
If anyone on this forum hasn't entered then they should.
I have never tried them so I don't know if they are good or not.
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. 😉
TFH 30 Year Wild Red Bali: A7-IR3, with a dash of In Sense Botanicals Ultra Enhanced Fuzzy Dragon. Very nice balance, I'm feeling upbeat and relaxed, and it has good pain relief.
