Anyone tried Kratom?
 
Really considering buying some of this. Has it helped you?

Can you tell me what a typical dose would be like? I know that high doses can be very dangerous, so what sort of dose would be good to alleviate anxiety and depression? How often can it be used and how do I take it?

Anything you can share with me would be very much appreciated <3

every time I tried it, I got hellishly nauseous and dizzy, but felt relaxed at the same time (provided I was laying down and doing nothing.) looking back, it might have something to do with the fact that i just eyeballed my doses instead of measuring them. in any case, I do not recommend

Kratom is very far from the foulest substance, there are so many things that are truly foul. the person who wrote this just made that up because Kratom is probably the one and only loose herb they ever worked with in their life.

I can name 20 things more foul. People just blurt out stuff at random, thats incorrect., Kratom is a bitter herb, its not foul like harmala, certain ground plant seeds, and many other things.

You can use Kratom once per 4 days, but its better to go with once a week,

Excellent post splendidbob, thanks a million! Am off to bed now, but will reply to your PM as soon as I get a chance.

uziq, sorry you did not benefit from the Kratom! Sounds like something you have to be veey careful with!

also it seems like almost no one in the world has ever heard of placing herbs in empty capsules, they talk about wasteful tea methods that wastes most the actives, they talk about eating the powder in liquid without filtering. its as if people do not know something called Capsules exists.

MoonlitMadness 12-14-2015 02:28 PM

Tone, everyone's taste buds are different are they not? I think many people will agree it is foul :3 I'll let you know my opinion on the taste when my order has arrived.

Yes, I wasn't that impressed. Slight elevation in mood. Taking more did not increase the effect at all. There are more satisfying things out there.

MoonlitMadness 12-14-2015 02:29 PM

I think putting it in capsules as opposed to making tea out of it produces different effects?

Haha.. no way am I passing along my drug abuse. Two wrongs don't make a right.

I took around 3 grams of Kratom everyday for months. It was wonderful. Felt almost exactly like taking a very mild Vicodin. Then one day, it didn't work anymore. And around twelve or so hours later I was puking my guts out at midnight. Stayed away from it after that for many months. Then took it again and of course it didn't work so I knew what was coming. I drank TONS of water throughout the day in preparation for being sick later on. Saved me from puking my guts out. I diluted whatever poison was in those capsules. Whatever it was, it wasn't Kratom. Most likely a competitor trying to gain 100 percent of the market share for it poisoned the supply. Or it could've been the FDA or the DEA. They're sworn to protect drug company's profits and so long as Kratom isn't synthesized and patented and sold to consumers by Big Pharma, it's not regulated in any way. So it's not like I could go back to the head shop and complain.

I've been using kratom nearly every day since June. I've become more healthy, joined personal training, and am overall less anxious. It's great because it works in minutes without affecting your judgement or energy (makes me feel more energetic and motivated ) it is a bit habit forming, I have found when I don't use it for a few days I get pretty bad restless legs. I'd recommend the powder version, making it into a tea, then straining w coffee filter so you can reuse the plant matter.

Hope this helps!

Also don't buy it from a headshop...find a reputable online source. You can message me if you'd like.

ingvarnaut 12-14-2015 06:47 PM

I would say it is pretty good.

Lifeafter30 12-14-2015 07:54 PM

Please! Message me privately and tell me. I am dying to get my hands on it. Haven't had it since 2014. That head shop can go to hell. Tell me where you get it.

chicagochuck 12-14-2015 07:57 PM

Iv tried it a bunch of times, a few diff varieties but I didn't notice much. I took it in capsule form. I made the capsules myself


...I do know of quite a few people that it has worked for.

Has anyone messaged you? Where are you based?

As a true opiate fiend, I find Kratom too underwhelming to be worth my while. I apologize that the Kanna from tranceplants didn't work for you, MoonlitMadness : /. I have taken massive doses of Maeng Da Kratom(15g, toss n' wash[I have an iron stomach]) from a reputable vendor, and even then, the euphoric effects were too underwhelming to satisfy my opiate expectations to waste money on it. I honestly don't know how heroin addicts supposedly use it as an alternative? It could be completely different for you though! I have friends who absolutely love the stuff. Be careful, and I hope it provides you with some relief =].

If you can recommend me something that could provide anxiety and depression relief do send me a PM!

You took 15g of Kratom? Wow I am surprised you weren't sick!!

Will update y'all when I try the Kratom.

Lifeafter30 12-15-2015 07:55 AM

Why? Are you a drug company of the U.S. drug cartel? Trying to ruin everything again.
