Gizmo’s Green Malay Holiday 2019 Challenge


About Green Malay Kratom:

According to the Kratom News Site, Green Malay Kratom is popularly known in its country of origin for its natural benefits, such as pain relief and improved mood. Recently, it also gained popularity outside its turf due to its high potency and strong effects, hence the moniker “Super Green Malay.” Many users prefer the Green Malay Kratom to other strong variants of Kratom, like Maeng Da, as they discover that its effects last longer and basically, cheaper. However, this comparison is still long debated up to this day as some also claim that Maeng Da is much better.

Granted that all Kratom strains are proven to be beneficial, the Green varieties – specifically the Green Malay Kratom – stand out above the rest with its potency and sustainability. The Green Malay Kratom has a more mild effect as a stimulant. Thus, it can provide increased strength and energy without the numbing, analgesic effect that some Kratom strains have. The alkaloids found in Green Malay Kratom is highly concentrated which in turn allow the users to have the pain relieving effect alongside the boosting energy effects.

About the Green Malay Holiday 2019 Challenge:

In this increasingly divisive country we seem to be living in – we’re making the next Kratom comparison all about the sense of getting along; feeling a part of; and reducing stress & anxiety. For that goal, we’ve chosen our Special Contributor Gizmo – who considers themselves a Green Kratom connoisseur – to evaluate and compare several different Green Malay/Super Green Malay strains as the most well-known strain that seems to evoke those attributes. Over the next several days, Gizmo will be sampling the aromas of several Green Malay Kratom from:

MITRAGAIA Super Green Malay Powder: (8/2/19) – MITRAGAIA (formerly known as GAIA) has developed a well-earned reputation for having a quality product at a very fair price. As Gizmo’s first foray into this challenge, they went with their Super Green Malay Powder which is often said to be one of the strongest greens available. With professional packaging, an uber-fresh aroma, and silky soft powder, it was quite evident that this was fresh powder. The effects of this aroma begin to make itself present within 10-15 minutes and lasted for close to 3 hours. Gizmo’s thoughts were while this was nice, it wasn’t as potent as they might have imagined it would be. Mood and energy were improved but not to the point where Gizmo wanted to “Go Gizmo” and tackle every task at hand. Stress levels were lowered. Hip discomfort was slowly slid away. This is an even, effective powder. It didn’t disappoint; is fairly priced; and shipped quickly, but it didn’t cause Gizmo to sing from the highest perch either.
Score: 4.4 out of 5.0

Evergreen Tree Green Malay Powder: (8/4/19) – Evergreen Tree is a relatively new vendor that is already gaining a reputation for quality, consistency and innovative new products – including their Maeng Da Liquid Kratom Extract that is considered one of the strongest water based liquid kratom extracts on the market. Arriving in well-sealed packaging, this Green Malay Powder was every bit as fresh, smooth and unclumped as any powder Gizmo has encountered. Now THIS is what Green Malay Powder is known for. Within just a few minutes of sampling this aroma, Gizmo’s entire perspective and attitude were enhanced. Positivity. Sociability. Focus. Engagement. Every aspect of mood and outlook seemed to be positively affected. Gizmo could easily see where someone with high stress or anxiety would consider this powder’s aroma to be vital to their daily interactions. In fact, Gizmo now considers Evergreen Tree’s Green Malay to be one of this Top 5 ever sampled. This is a fantastic strain. If the experience had listed just a little longer, it would have garnered a perfect score; but that’s a small quibble for a great green. (Score: 4.9 out of 5.0)

Krabot Green Malay Kratom Powder: (8/8/19) – Krabot has been a well-known and respected Kratom vendor for many years. Their iconic (and genius!) Elephant Logo makes them…pardon the pun..easy to remember! Gizmo has been a Krabot fan for quite some time and was very pleased when their Red Bali won the Great Bali Challenge of 2019. Arriving to Gizmo in typical very-professional Krabot packaging, Krabot’s Green Malay powder was as fresh and silky smooth as it can possibly get. You’ll have a hard time finding any Kratom Powder smoother than what you get from Krabot. For whatever reason’s Krabot’s aroma took a little longer than others to make itself known. While most Greens present themselves rather quickly, this one lingered around for a bit before coming into full spectrum. Once engaged though, it was a pleasant feeling. A typical green won’t have you leaping tall buildings, rather focusing intently on them and feeling like, if you wanted to, you probably could. Gizmo’s mood was nice and cheerful and focus was intent and polished. Gizmo could see where someone who prefers their Green Malay to quietly find its away into their scope, would really like this one. Gizmo though, likes a Green that is knocking on the door with a little more resounding impact. All that said though, Krabot’s Green Malay enjoyed a full run and never wavered its impact.

PurKratom Premium Green Malay Kratom Capsules: (8/11/19) PurKratom is one of the original Kratom vendors and is considered more mainstream and “consumer friendly” than some of the other vendors out there. On an important note, they are also an American Kratom Association GMP Approved Vendor. This assure customers that their kratom products are both safe and of consistently high quality. The American Kratom Association (AKA) created its Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certification program. Kratom vendors who receive this certification must follow the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) standards in their processing and manufacturing processes. If that doesn’t give you the confidence to trust that they’re selling quality Kratom, pretty much nothing will. PurKratom also has the slickest and most professional packaging around; the type you would expect to see if it was available at your local Supplements Shop. Those factors alone make PurKratom worthy of contention here. In this case, Gizmo selected capsules vs powder for the comparison. The recommended experience on the label was 3 capsules. Gizmo says that this a Green Malay that does exactly what its supposed to. It’s not overwhelming. Its not head and shoulders above the rest, but it is consistent. And it is good. It’s also the 2nd longest duration Gizmo encountered. Gizmo could see where the “nervous nellie” type would gravitate towards this vendor because of its reputation, history, ease of preperation and AKA GMP Certification. And Gizmo would tell them that’s a great choice. They won’t be disappointed. (Score 4.45 out of 5.0)

Local Smoke Shop Private Label Green Malay Powder: (8/14/19) It’s always hit and miss when one ventures into their local vape/smoke/kratom, shop and picks up a no-name strain. Given that there’s no name brand to stand behind it; no guarantees of consistency; or insight in to how fresh it might be, it’s a crap shoot at best. Gizmo has been pleasantly surprised in the past though. Ask Gizmo about Green Fuzzy Capsules. This time Gizmo got the blahs. Nothing unique, special or inspiring stood out about this choice. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t good, if that makes any sense. The duration was the shortest of the group as well. Gizmo recommends choosing these no-name blends with caution. (Score 3.90 out of 5.0)


Conclusion: Gizmo really enjoyed this challenge. Green Malay is considered one of the most positive, uplifting and motivation strains around and these 5 – with the possible exception of the Private Label sample – lived up to that reputation. After the powder dust had settled though, Gizmo could only choose one winner – and that winner is Evergreen Tree Green Malay Powder. With its excellent combination of potency, positivity and price, this one stood out as being Gizmo’s favorite. If you haven’t had a chance to sample any of their products, you’re missing out. Evergreen Tree might be new in the marketplace, but they are shipping some veteran quality product. If you’re more of a fan of Red’s or White’s, they also carry those. Visit them today and see for yourself what makes them so unique. Gizmo says you won’t be disappointed.
