Does the following sound familiar? You finally bought into the Kratom lifestyle.
With the hype and rave for Kratom on the Internet, you have read and absorbed as many articles as you could before you bought this stuff. Your life is about to finally transform, just like every one that vouches for Kratom will tell you.
So you burn the green powder as quickly as you can. You can already imagine and visualize what’s about to happen. This was it!
It was going to be just like the scene from Limitless.
You will finally feel the care free vibe, the sedative euphoria, the mind bending focus, the suave ninja social skills and the super powers every one is talking about.
Five minutes pass, you shrug and say “it’s still too early to judge“.
Then 15 minutes.
Then 30 minutes. Hmmm maybe your watch is off .
Now you’re starting to panic. You look back at your watch again but this time it has been 3 hours since your last dose but yet… nothing.
That’s odd. There was no aroma, no euphoria, and no “superpowers”.
You didn’t experience any of the things that the Internet promised how Kratom was supposed to be. You sit down upset and frustrated. Why didn’t it work? Is this whole thing a scam or a placebo?
Well believe it or not, that’s actually exactly how I felt the first couple times I tried Kratom and also phenibut (which is a completely different nootropic at Happy Hippo Herbals that you may wish to check out).
As mentioned on this website, your first couple of months will typically be an “experimental phase” when it comes to making Kratom work for you. Not everybody tells you that. You have to find the right dose, the best time for you, as well as consider your body type, whether you burn before or after food etc. and generally experiment to see what the right combination is to make Kratom work for you.
Enter: Happy Hippo 1 (Super Green Indo Kratom)
One way to almost skip this “experimental phase”, however, is to start by trying Happy Hippo’s Indo Super Green 1 Kratom strain (previously called Happy Hippo 1).
It has been coined as the “beginner’s first time kratom” and “The strain that always hits“. If you are just starting out or on the verge of giving up because Kratom doesn’t seem to work for you, or want to further your knowledge and add a new Kratom strain to your arsenal then keep on reading…
When Kratom Isn’t Working for You
What I sometimes call “Kratom hell” or “Kratom purgatory” is when Kratom just doesn’t seem to be working or having any effect for you after multiple attempts. This is usually the case for some first timers and beginners because they struggle to find the right strains or haven’t figured out the correct method of dosing for themselves.
If you’ve never used Kratom I personally recommend the Happy Hippo Starter Pack which is meant for people new to Kratom.
It usually comes with the following strains:
These are some of the strains that almost always hit. So if you are currently in “Kratom hell” go ahead and give Happy Hippo 1 or some of the other strains listed above a try. I would probably add green Malay Kratom to the list too.
Make sure you follow the other guidelines for Kratom such as burning on an empty stomach, experimenting with the dose, taking 1-4 week breaks, rotating strains regularly, avoiding Kratom extracts… you know, just the basic Kratom 101 rules as discussed on this site.
Happy Hippo 1 Means That There Are Happy Days Ahead!
Happy Hippo 1 is a green indo Kratom and is actually a moderate strain which includes both the effects of a slow and fast strain and can cancel out the negative side effects each one may have.
It’s technically the best of both worlds. You can achieve the euphoria when burning at higher doses and also get some energy out of it if you have a busy day ahead of you. Just don’t expect anything crazy like the surge of energy you might get from a strain like Maeng Da Elite Green, Red Vein Kratom or Rockstar Hippo (also a Maeng Da Kratom strain).
But overall it’s pretty much a “do it all” strain. You can use this strain for virtually any activity whether it be working out, socializing, relaxing, you name it.
A Word or Two From Someone That Used Happy Hippo 1 for 3+Years
Unfortunately for me I didn’t have the luxury of having somebody write out an article like this when I first tried out Kratom. However, fortunately my first batch order was from a high quality trusted vendor who we all know by now as Happy Hippo Herbals.
You see, sometimes the reason Kratom doesn’t work in the first place is probably because you got some bunk Kratom from some run of the mill website. Save yourself the headache; save up a little more and buy Kratom from a trusted vendor. You will thank me later.
Now having said that –
I have used Indo Super Green 1 on and off and you’ll usually find it listed on almost most of my order receipts whenever I purchase Kratom.
I have had my fair share of fun experiences with Kratom and I definitely have strains that I prefer over Happy Hippo 1. But Happy Hippo 1 is my safe haven and guaranteed aroma if I ever do need it.
Happy Hippo 1 has hit and produced the promised effects 100% of the time… I kid you not.
In fact, I have given Kratom to some of my close friends and the first few times it didn’t seem to be doing anything for them.
(Usually because the dose was really low, they burned on a very full stomach etc.)
But the day I decided to give them the Indo Super Green 1 strain, they all seemed to experience the desired results and constantly brought to my attention the lowered anxiety effects they experienced.
Indo Super Green 1 (Happy Hippo 1) Dosage
Indo Super Green 1 is a happy medium and doesn’t necessarily need a higher dose to experience the effects. Of course all things being equal, upping the dosage on any strain (to a point) seems to enhance the experience and increase euphoria and well being.
Note: There are diminishing returns when burning larger dose. After a certain point the aroma will just turn lousy and you may start to experience some side effects such as a headache, nausea etc.
As with most Kratom strains, I would recommend about 2 grams to start off with and slowly up the dosage every 30 minutes if necessary.
What To Expect
I already mentioned this a little bit already, but overall one of the first things you will notice with Happy Hippo 1 is the reduction in anxiety. If you have any background anxiety, it’s a perfect because it’ll help you feel care free and more “normal” in uncomfortable situations.
Other than that, it produces the focus needed for completing tasks and long assignments or work. Like I said earlier, you won’t experience a huge jump of energy like you would with a fast strain but you’ll get a little something.
Upping the dose usually means more euphoria, happiness, and a warm pleasant feeling without a care in the world. The aroma should come about after 15-40 minutes or so.
That about sums it all up. Green Indo Kratom and specifically Happy Hippo’s Indo Super Green 1 is a must try whether you’re a beginner or a Kratom veteran; I’d rate it a 5/5 if you have the right expectations for it. Happy Hippo 2 is similar in that it can be used for pretty much anything.
At the end of the day I’m pretty sure you guys will like it. If there’s anything I missed, feel free to comment below and tell us your personal experience with this strain.
