I got an order of bali from a vendor I've used many times. I almost always get bali. However, this order I got today is strange. When I opened the pouch, it smelled VERY strong, and doesn't have the earthy smell kratom normally does, it's more of a sour/off smell, almost like when chicken has gone off. It made me instantly nauseous. This was like an hour ago and my stomach is still upset from the smell. Also, the color is much darker than normal.
I emailed support and just got a response that they're looking further into it, but they think it's just the way the product is this growing season.
Is that true? Have any of you long-time users experienced certain strains having this issue during certain times of the year?
