Hi everyone. I believe the last time I was here was about 2 years ago. The website has changed tremendously lol which makes me tremendously lost and confused 🤷🏻♀️ 🤨😂 I’m not sure if my initial post from then is still here because I’m having a ridiculous time navigating the website. I apologize in advance if my post does not belong wherever it ends up lol To try and make this as brief as possible, last time I was here I was intent on getting off pills. Bottom line, I failed; until now! I’ve now been clean since Halloween Night, or the day after actually. A week ago I bought some kratom to help with my pain and mood. Unfortunately I’m buying from my local headshop, using Choice Botanicals brand and its way too expensive. I’m trying purchase online and can’t decide where to purchase. I’m curious if anyone is familiar with the brand O.P.M.S. Last I was here, I had a couple people helping me. Laurie was one of them. If anyone could help me with this (and I can find your reply 😂) I would be super grateful! Thanks everyone!
Back after 2 years
Hey @desperado7! Welcome back!
we are also trying to find our way around this new platform we’re on now!
Very cool of you to make your way back - the effort is appreciated.
CONGRATULATIONS! Quitting the pills seems so much bigger than it actually is - once you have gotten past it.
Still a milestone worth noting and never forgetting!
Now back to your current situation. Our sweet mod, @somethingsacred Brandon got you the information you need.
I also have not tried OPMS products. But I have learned through others that OPMS products are not the direction for those of us staying clean. That’s why I haven’t tried it.
I’m so glad you made it past that crutch. You should be able to find some quality products from the vendors @SomethingSacred Brandon mentioned.
The brand on your local stuff is a generic name and not an actual supplier of products.
Have a wee bit better day!
Congratulations on getting off the pills. I know it can be a very difficult thing to do. But it is great when you do. 👍
Here is a link to I believe your first post in Jan 2019.
You mentioned that you purchased from InSense: Green Hulu, Fuzzy Dragon, Gold MD, KX Premium Blend, Chocolate Malay, and White Borneo.
I have tried many of those and found they were effective for my arthritis pains. Do you remember how they worked for you back then.
Other vendors I have tried, that Brandon didn't mention, are:
PA Botanicals, Laughing Lion, and Hudson Valley Botanicals.
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. 😉
Welcome back. So many really good vendors to chose these days and now many are stepping up to GMP- Good manufacturing practices.
Pa Botanicals is currently having 30% off sale. They have a new private reserve kratom that's really good. Red Fibro great for those extra pain days and Green Borneo are my choices. If using e-checks for the first time/new customers it will take a few days to process the order. Other payments are fine.
I also love Insense/ Goldleaf and they ship out fast. They have many new blends and great selection of other botanicals. (if rob see this- when is the next sale I am looking to get some shilajit?)
The rest mentioned are all good choice. Check out their web sites, payment methods, shipping, whatever you decide it should be better quality and much less expensive than the headshop.
Best to everyone!
Hi Elyse @desperado7
Congratulations on being pill free !! That’s amazing news and so liberating .
Headshop kratom is always something the ILK community cautions people against, but in a pinch, always good to know it’s there . O.P.M.S , I haven’t tried this product , some folks ( many newbies ) have reported that is good ... but I believe there may be extract in their gold and silver capsules ,, something that should only be taken sparingly ..... or when extra help is required .
we have a great list of ILK approved vendors providing high quality leaf , testing for pathogens and other impurities ensuring that what we put into our body is good kratom and nothing else .
Here’s a few companies off the top of my head that I’ve tried and was very happy with .
InSense/ Goldleaf ,
High Sierra Herbals
Benni Botanical ( not ILK approved , but one of my preferred sources )
Your Leaf Your Life
Smiley Time Herbals ( not ILK approved , but very good )
And much more !
The new site is much diff than the previous one, but after some time you’ll get the hang of it ... any help you need regarding navigation here , please don’t hesitate to ask for help .
@Laurie is still here and I bet will chime in shortly to say hi and offer thoughts, support and congratulations on your accomplishment.
The other brand from the head shop you mentioned , I’ve never heard of .... my suggestion is to look into one of our approved or recommended vendors to save money and also to procure top shelf kratom . Headshop products are something as a emergency source ....
Big hi fives Elyse 🖐
Happy to have you back , stay tuned for others to add to this thread !
Life is better with Kratom
