Fairly new to using kratom. I've been using a wholesale vender for the last month with good results. I have been using Maeng Da red which has a brownish and red color.The last order I received was green and was concerned that I received the wrong order even though it was labeled red.I talked with the vender and he said that depending on age or batch it can still have a green color. They seem to have a good reputation and have strict guidelines for testing and what not. Golden Monk is the vender, and also this is my first post...Thanx for viewing. By the way they also said that I could return it with a credit or refund if I still were not convinced.
