    SWIM just got 5 grams of "Kratom Full Spectrum Extract." His opiate tolerence is WAY down and has only tried kratom (15X SWIM thinks) once before, a couple years back and remembered he liked the feeling.

    This "Full Spectrum Extract" claims that is extracts all the alkaloids instead of just 1 or 2 and suposively that makes it better? It claims that its "3X better than 15X" but SWIM thinks alot of that is just marketing. It could be a bit stronger but SWIM doubts its really 45X.

    For anyone that has tried this before SWIM could really benefit from how much SWIY took, the effects, and how long it lasts (because SWIM forgot all about it). This is the "Full Spectrum Extract" not the "Tincture" so basically it looks like the normal extract except its light in color vs the dark brown that SWIM remembers.

    Thanks in advance =).

    Re: Full Spectrum Extract Dosing questions

    Swim was feeling pretty great (see note below) off of 1.7 grams of the full spectrum extract. No nausea what so ever. Swim would recommend .75g to 1.0g to start off, but this may be a little to much for a first time user, always start small and work swiys self up.

    Note: Swim is using Kratom to help with his withdrawal symptoms from an oxycodone habit. He was using around 100mg to 120mg a day of oxycodone, so this may be affecting his tolerance to Kratom.

    SWIM ended up taking around 1-1.5 grams, and finished the 5g bag throughout the day. He ordered some more with some "powdered resin" and has realized that the resin was ALOT better than the "full spectrum extract". He would use like 1.5-2X the amount of resin that he used full spectrum and it would give him the same or even greater effects. He has experience with alot of opiates and is now off them, he decided to try kratom after a few years now that his opiate tolarance is nothing and he isnt taking suboxone anymore.


    SWIM would rather have 2 ounces of resin than 10 grams of that extract stuff =).

    Re: Full Spectrum Kratom Extract Dosing Questions

    Sorry if this is out of place but, swim is new here and swim is expecting some
    Maximum-Strength Full-Spectrum Kratom Tincture in about an hour. Swim would like to know how many drops swim should take? Swim only tried powder a couple of times and had not such great things happen. Swim would like a pain killer effect but, powder has only given swim the jittery feeling. Swim doesnt like that. Swim has been taking oxycodone for sometime now for chronic pain but swim does not abuse it. Just thought swim would try something else.

    OK, so swim just took 11 drops of Mitragyna speciosa F/S kratom tincture. Swim mixed it with Sunny Delight juice. Shall see how this turns out.

    peacefrogdd added 23 Minutes and 51 Seconds later...

    Is Mitragyna speciosa the same as Maximum-Strength Full-Spectrum Kratom Tincture?
    Because swim ordered max but the bottle that came says Mitra...

    peacefrogdd added 45 Minutes and 3 Seconds later...

    1 hour and 15 minutes later swim felt very little if anything so swim took 5 more drops.

    peacefrogdd added 3 Minutes and 6 Seconds later...

    swim wonder if someone can tell swim how to post a reply with out it merging with swims last one. But swim honestly doubts a response to this question since swim thinks she is all alone here..:(

    Re: Full Spectrum Kratom Extract Dosing Questions

    Perhaps a little late with this answer, but one needs to know what type or variety of kratom leaf and how much was used to make a certain volume of the tincture. Or... what the percentage of total alkaloids per drop or millilitre is in order to be able to estimate what an average dose would be.


    Mitragyna speciosa is kratom... the leaf harvested from a tree in the mitragyna genus, which is a member of the Rubiaceae family of trees. So... Basically all that this description means, is that a non-specific variety of mitragyna speciosa (kratom) leaf was used to make the tincture. Most likely Bali.


    You can't. If the posts are back to back within the same day (I believe), then the system will automatically merge them to reduce the number of posts in a particular thread.:)

    Re: Full Spectrum Kratom Extract Dosing Questions

    The quality of tinctures varies greatly and the cheaper ones are crap from what SWIM hears. The fact that the product SWIY has is called "maximum strength" gives SWIM the impression that it is one of the cheaper crap ones as the real god stuff doesnt have to use such basic marketing ploys. Genuinely good tinctures are VERY expensive.

    If SWIY wants to find what Kratoms all about, SWIM recommends they get their hands on some UEI (Ultra enhanced Indo) and take 1 gram. If that doesnt blow SWIYs tits off then she may be one of those people who seem to get less from Kratom. The fact she is taking perscription opiates will have some effect on the potency of kratom too. Note that SWIM also recommends that SWIY does not regularly take UEI as it ruins ones tolerance and renders all standard leaf pretty much useless, but it would be good to try once just to see how SWIYs body is effected by Kratom and if it is for her.

    SWIM recenlt recieved 6 ml of FST and the product claimed that 1ml was equal to 75 g of leaf. Well, that made SWIM a little nervous, so SWIM used a syringe to pull up the tincture and got about 1/3 of a cc (would be equal to 25g according to the package) and sprayed it in his tea.

    About 30 minues later, SWIM was full on blown out with a buzz that SWIM hadn't had since his OC days. The package was not lying. This also justified the $100 price tag for 6ml.

    Swim still has about half of it left, and it arrived almost 2 weeks ago. This is serisously powerful stuff, and I would caution anybody who orders FST to be EXTREMELY careful with it. If SWIM had taken 2ml or maybe even 1ml at once SWIM would have been in big trouble and no doubt would have had a bad result. If SWIM had thrown caution to the wind and used the whole tincture at once, SWIM probably would not be here today.

    Folks, FST is no joke.

    SWIM's GF took just a small sip that SWIM had mixed up for himself of FST and a little juice, probably two droppers full, she ingested maybe half a dropper and her pupils were almost gone and she spent the whole night vomiting. SWIM finished the glass and felt fine, although he's bigger and generally has a high tolerance for most all substances.

    But as a cautionary tale, yeah, she just took a small sip of what SWIM considered a pretty weak mix and was nearly incapacitated by it. So 1) different doses for different people and 2) FSTs are usually no joke. They will definitely have an effect, even in what seems to be small amounts.

    Absolutely... Good FST is pricy, but it's way better than most opiates IMO. As SWIM said earlier, the package cautioned that 1ml was equal to 75 g of leaf. If anyone was to throw caution to the wind and just put a few drops on their tongue, SWIM has no doubt they would become incapacitated pretty fast.

    The FST that SWIM received is best measured using a syringe. Even then, SWIm doesn't recommend just squirting onto the tongue (as SWIM did). Rather, put it into about 6 oz of water, then sip the water slowly until you get the desired effect.

    Yeah it's pretty surprising how little you need, but then again with most meds, like hydro or oxy, you just need a few mg, which liquified would be a matter of milliliters. It's just deceiving when it's in a 20 ml bottle, heh.

    And I think it's really important that folks know that FST is MUCH more powerful than any other type of kratom, especially if you find a good supplier who knows how to get real good kratom.

    So, as I said earlier, what I do is to put maybe a drop or two into 6oz of water or juice, stir and then slowly sip the beverage, stopping once you begin to feel the desired effect.
