Sampling Mood & Mind


I've been using Mood & Mind as a vendor on and off for several years now, and have been impressed by their efficiency and customer service. They recently sent me a number of samples to try and I've found three new favorites that I'll be reviewing here. If you like what you read and decide to pay them a visit, please be sure to create an account to view their kratom selection. It’s quick and painless!

TIP: When I shop at Mood & Mind, I use the coupon code TOMTEA10 to save 10% on their kratom, which has the brand name “Tom Tea”. Enter in the cart at checkout.


Recently I had the opportunity to talk with the owners of Mood & Mind, and I learned a lot about them and their processes. In the wake of the DEA scare from 2016, they were a huge contributor to PR firms and both the American Kratom Association and the Botanical Education Alliance, and continue to contribute to the ongoing legal battle. Every time you buy from them, you’re helping the fight to keep kratom available to us all. I also learned that quality is extremely important to them; their packaging is done in an FDA-regulated facility and they lab test and quality control every batch. They also ensure that their Kratom is free from contaminants or metals, which is something I’d like to see every vendor doing to protect consumers and to help keep kratom legal.

Now, onto the reviews!

Maeng Da Green/Red Blend

The results are exactly what I love about kratom. At six grams, I got a nice shot of energy along with a relaxed feeling and felt like doing things. I was content and didn't feel the need to take my anti-anxiety medication. It wasn’t quite the energy shot I’d experience from maybe a green or white vein, but it was perfect for the time of day and circumstances.

Green Malay

This one is an energy booster, for sure. I normally don't feel like doing much in the evening, but this one gave me enough energy in the evening to pursue two of my hobbies: playing the banjo and writing code. The great thing about it was that I found that I could get away with a smaller dosage than with other varieties; five grams is the magic number for me. I also tried combining with the Maeng Da Red/Green blend, which I found to be pleasant as well.

Holiday Blend

The holiday bend was a smooth, relaxing blend of red, white and green vein. I was overcome with a sense of calm, but also motivation to get some things done (like write this review). I’m almost always stressed out after work, but this put me in a very pleasant mood. I took a teaspoon and a half to start, then another teaspoon about forty-five minutes later. If you’re looking to feel some holiday cheer, put the eggnog down and reach for this blend.

As I discover more favorites, I’ll update this post to include those, so please stay tuned and check often!
