Kratom

  1. Here's why we must continue to study Kratom and other opioid-like drugs

    The Hill, published July 8, 2018 by Paula N. Brown The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently gave final approval for the first non-opioid drug shown to lessen the severity of opioid withdrawal symptoms. Meanwhile, President Trump signed into law groundbreaking “right to try” legislation allowing the terminally ill to explore unapproved medical treatments as a last resort. In light of these developments, researchers and advocates of the botanical Kratom were hopeful for increased...
  2. Help me find my kratom

    ZeUS159;1767047]Dang so no benefits for a tincture huh? What about capsules? Those the same as any or should I just look at making a good tea? I've made alcohol tinctures and they seem to be more sedating than tea. None of the energetic properties. That's a no go for me. I used to do capsules but I had a few instances where I took enough to get sick and puke. Now I can't bear the thought of capsules. I make yogurt smoothies for my Kratom. I also used to use apple sauce to good...
  3. Kratom~Week 1

    It's been a little over a week that I've been using Kratom. I can definitely feel when I'm on it. The energy is GREAT! I don't really feel any effects on mood... which is good and bad really. With my painkillers, I can get pretty bitchy. I've had a chance to try several strains and have received my order from a third vendor. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, although I did take the hint from threads here and requested some samples. They were happy to throw a few in. I also...
  4. Kratom~Day 1

    Here is how my first order of Kratom arrived (vendor specific information removed). I was surprised at how small these bags are. I used to buy puer and oolong tea from a company that sourced out of Tiawan and it was packaged similarly. I just took 1 tsp. of maeng da mixed into a tapioca pudding. (it's all I had on hand) meaning the tsp. and the tapioca. When I go out today I'll look for a scale that can measure small amounts and get a respectable chocolate something for mixing....
  5. Two Months and Still Struggling Getting Off Kratom

    Here it is, two months later, and I'm still struggling to get off kratom. I have made some progress. I used to take about 24-48 grams a day. (I used tablespoons for measuring most of the time-it was a while before I got a scale-so that's a rough estimate.) That was divided into multiple doses, of course. Now, I'm taking 16 grams a day, (again, divided into multiple doses,) but I can't seem to lower that dose any. I tried cold turkey first-that was a disaster. I mean disaster:I...
  6. Kratom is Weird stuff.

    The first time I tried Kratom was over 3 years ago. I had experience with opioid but was not a regular user at that time. At first it just made me really stoned and then made me sleep. There was also an addiction that went on for a short period, maybe a week, where I was dosing it 4 grams twice a day at least. I noticed that I was in this weird depressed state during that time, and also that it seemed to have paradoxical effects- for example , insomnia, fast heart. I stopped using it...
