Strains, Effects, and Dosage

Strains And Effects

Many people new to kratom have questions about the effects of different strains. The following table serves as a comparative base for some of the most popular strains of kratom on the market:

Strain Effects Dosage
Bali Euphoric and the most classic opiate like among the strains of kratom 1/2 – 3 teaspoons
Maeng Da Energizing and stimulating with pain killing effects 1/2 – 3 teaspoons
Red Vein Thai Similar to Bali with fewer negative side effects 1/2 – 3 teaspoons
Super Indo Similar to Bali with less euphoria 1/2 – 3 teaspoons
Super Green Malaysian Varies between suppliers but is typically more stimulating with little euphoria 1/2 – 3 teaspoons
Ultra Enhanced Indo Most euphoric of the extracts and works well for reducing social anxiety 1 gram or less (if mixed with powdered leaf)
Thai Essence Somewhat weaker than Ultra Enhanced Indo by weight with a bit of a Maeng Da kick 1 gram or less (if mixed with powdered leaf)
Full Spectrum Tincture (FST) The original likely had synthetic 7-hydroxymitragynine but current formulations are basically Ultra Enhanced Indo in liquid form 0.25mL or more

  1. If this site is truly dedicated to providing legitimate science about kratom, then please make this above information scientific. Depending on the vendor, 1 tablespoon of kratom could weigh anywhere from 6 to 12 grams, which is a tremendous difference in dose. Also, you may want to consider a disclaimer warning new users that this information is only relatively accurate and potency will always vary from vendor to vendor. It is presented here as being facts with no sources. Kratom is a drug and should be respected as such, everyone who uses this substance needs to use digital scales and measure their doses by the gram.

    As a student of science and a lover of kratom, I just had to vent these frustrations. If you want to be taken seriously as an “authority,” (PS authoritative is a word meaning that you rule with an iron grip, not that you are an authority on a certain subject) then use scientific notation and cite your sources. =)

    1. Good response. The effects of Kratom should not be based on a “he said – she said” or “rumor has it” type communication; fox news does that for everyone.

      1. Except it doesn’t say tablespoon, it says teaspoon. I highly doubt you can fit 6-12 grams of kratom on a teaspoon without it spilling everywhere.

    2. A teaspoon is a scientific culinary measurement known to be 4.2 grams.

      1. I think you may be confusing the weight form of ounces with the volume form of fluid ounces and then converting to grams. A teaspoon is a measure of volume. A gram is a unit of measure of mass. Density of the material influences the conversion factor from volume to mass. Which is what the OP was saying. When he said a tablespoon could hold 6-12 grams, he’s implying that the density varies depending on the vendor. A teaspoon of vegetable oil would weigh less than a teaspoon of water, which would weigh less than a teaspoon of mercury.

        I’m not 100% on your though process, and am too lazy to verify that a teaspoon is 0.15 fluid ounces, but if that’s true, water would be closest to the 4.2g per teaspoon you stated, as it is almost a 1:1 ratio of grams to ml (density), meaning the conversion factor from fluid ounces to mass ounces would be unity.

        1. I verified that it’s actually 6 teaspoons in 1 fluid ounce. Which means there is 0.167 fluid ounces in a teaspoon.

  2. As far as taking down the powder goes, why not dump it into a water bottle with a little water, shake it, and down it as fast as you can?

    1. Basically. The only method I use is to take powder, put it into a small (like Guayaki energy shot) glass bottle, add a bit of lemon juice and fill mostly with hot water, then shake shake shake. Add a bit more water to make it pourable and the drink it with a bit of juice. Chase with hot tea (add cayenne and/or black pepper to potentiate) and it’s on.

      1. I just mix about 10 grams of kratom powder with about 12oz of orange juice and shake it until it’s completely mixed in, then I drink half the bottle at a time. Very simple, the OJ is really healthy (I use the Simply Orange brand, the kind with calcium and vitamin D in it), cheap, and it doesn’t taste half bad this way. The acidity and tangy quality of the OJ make it a good cover for kratom’s bitter taste.

        1. My girlfriend thinks it’s gross, but I just take a tea spoon of Kratom, tilt my head back, and dump the powder in my mouth. I grab a water bottle, take some water in, and swoosh it around like mouth wash and then swallow. Really not bad at all, it tastes like tea! (at least the Maeng Da that I have does.

    2. I like to mix it up in a bowl with honey until it becomes a paste then just spoon it down with a glass of water. There is no danger of inhaling the fine powder (which if anyone has accidentally done will know how uncomfortable that is!).

      1. That’s for sure I tried that with about a tsp washed it down with juice and it came back up right away finished the rest of it in an energy drink it’s tolerable Venom mango

    3. I find that this is by far the best method with powder, just use juice or a juice blend, preferably something citrusy. I’m a weirdo, I like the taste of kratom powder. maeng da red is by far my favorite. I can take it with water, milk, lick the tablespoon, it’s all good to me. However as I described before, citrus juice shaken in a blender bottle is by far the most approachable and taste removing method. I have a fair tolerance to opiates, so 1 heaping tablespoon does me perfect with the maeng da red. Maybe a little cannibis an hour or two later…..money.

    4. Mixing…I like to mix the powder in almond milk or chocolate almond milk and use a drink mixer to stir. Very easy to take in just a few ounces.

  3. I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours today,
    but I by no means found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s lovely worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did,
    the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  4. Toss n wash, make a tea, mix with yogurt, use in place of hops when making.beer. there are all kinds of methods, and most dosages depend on the quality of the vendor.
    Be responsible. This doesn’t need more bad attention on the news. With drugs like alcohol tobacco and a world of otc poisons you’d think Kratom would.be deemed safe, beingthat not a single person has died from Kratom alone.

  5. The way I take my kratom is I mix about 3-4 grams of kratom powder into a cup of orange juice while using a straw, afterwards I re pour another half cup of OJ to get the rest of the kratom chunks that sticks on the side of the cup. Probably the best way to bare the taste. Also, works effectively well.

  6. You can ingest Kratom by mixing it as well – but being that I’ve been using kratom for a couple years to combat intolerable pain at the recommendation of doctors – I can day that I recommend against it. Depends partially on what kind you have, but I’m telling you it can be Horrendously bitter. I’ve thrown up just from drinking this stuff mixed with just water. It’s easier to toss and wash. I have a strong stomach too – I was prescribed extremely high doses of hydrocodone and then some time later oxycodone and then hydromorphone later after that – I never got so much as a stomach ache from these. I have a strung stomach. So I mean that – feel free to test your bounds man but it sucked. There were many times where sure I didn’t feel even slightly sick. But the capacity of bitterness was there my friend.

    1. I mix with water and drink. I only use about 3/4 of a cup, stir and drink. I then add a bit more water and repeat the process until there’s none stuck to the cup.

      It was pretty gross at first but I’m at the point where it doesn’t even bother me at all.

    1. caps are a good masker of taste but hard to find the right dose. some people can take 4 caps and not feel a thing (even extracts). it also depends on the size of caps. weighing out the dose is very important. with every bag or bottle of kratom start off small then work your way to the PROPER dose. when i say every bag or bottle i mean EVERY BAG OR BOTTLE. the same bag/bottle of kratom you get will be different not just in weight but in how well the kratom performs.
      also useing caps will take longer for the kratom to take effect just like any pill form anything. the quickest way is powder the strongest way is powder…all in all powder is the way to go.

      trust me i hate powder it taste like crap. I like to take pepperoni (big slices) and put the powder in the middle of it and roll it up like a burrito…the pepperoni is very slimy and mixes well with kratoms cinnamon like texture (still dry even when wet)….also holding your breath allows you not to taste anything..breath from your mouth. (IT SEEMS LIKE A PROCESS BUT ITS NOT I PROMISE LOL)

      1. I’d like to mention something about ‘breathing through your mouth’. If you have a fat mound of kratom sitting on your tongue, or ‘rolled inside a pepperoni’ like you’ve mentioned, I’d like to recommend against breathing through your mouth.

        My first few experiences toss and washing were horrible because I breathed in and powder flew into my throat/lungs. It was terrible.

  7. Can you tell me which one is best for pain? I need to replace the morphine and hydrocone we are taking.

  8. I need help with the dosage to start out with for Maeng da Kraton for Pain, Fatigue and Depression, as I do not want a Euphoric effect at all, that’s not what I am going for. I suffer from Fibromyalgia and have a hard time even getting through a normal 8 hr work day, let alone every day life stuff that needs to be done, Dishes, laundry, shopping, ect … I am warn out 2 hrs after I get out of bed. Again, I do not want a euphoric effect, just relief from my pain and some energy to get through my day. Thank you so much, Jenn

    1. To be very blunt and honest, a strict diet, at least (20) minutes of exercise in the morning, and a proper sleep schedule does wonders to boost your energy naturally (kratom is natural…..but you should understand what I mean).

      The above recommendation is a much better alternative to taking kratom to boost your energy.

    2. You don’t want to use maeng DA for pain. Its an extremely euphoric strain. Red vein such as Bali is The best for pain. With less euphoric effects. Start out around 3 grams(magic starting number) and work up from there

    3. Hi Jenn :) I feel you all too well so had to comment to you. I have Fibro and AS with of course the lovely fatigue, pain and depression that comes with it soooo much fun so thought I’d give you my .02 on it. Been using Kratom for almost 3 years for it
      Maeng da is ok for pain ect but meh only when I can’t get Super Green Malaysian for day time and Bali strain for night or off work days. Alot of people seem to like the Red Vein Thai for pain haven’t tried any in a while so don’t really remember. White Vein seemed to aggravate or do nothing for pain at all but gave me energy.
      Then it’s hide in the bathroom at work and Toss and Wash because no one knows I’m sick and I don’t want to answer the whole “Why in the world are you Eating Dirt?!” :)

  9. Hey jenn, the euphoria isn’t what you’d expect it is more of a sense of well being it is pretty much a reliever of anxiety and makes you overly content to do thongs… People take it in certain countries before work everyday just for that fact alone you are almost a nicer and better person especially since the pain is dulled… But I would get super indo and Bali both start around 3 grams also mix the two and try it that way. But it depends on suppliers a lot have garbage and ull need 20 grams do your research don’t just buy from a place without plenty of feedback and the best of luck to your.. Or look above :)

    1. I am a little concerned about feeling good about doing thongs. As a Male I do not think it’s attractive.

  10. I’m hoping you experts can help me…I get prescribed pain pills for cancer (oxycodone , morphine & oxycotton) I really would like to stop taking them because when I run out I feel like I’m going to die, I think its withdrawal :( I heard about kratom and was wondering what would be the best for 1. Pain and 2. Helping with dealing with withdrawal if I stop taking my pain meds.. Please help and thank you all so much…means a lot to me, I can’t take the suffering anymore

  11. Shane you are definitely having withdrawals when you run out of the meds.
    I’ve been on poain pills for about 13 years and finally switched to suboxone to get off of them.
    I use kratom when I run out of my subs and also used it when running out of roxis and it def helps with the withdrawals not to mentiin it gives you a great little mood boost.
    I would try either green malaysian or maeng da. Guthros Garden is my vendor of choice.
    Hope this helps and good luck with your health.

  12. I used Kratom to get off opiates/suboxone. It has changed my life! I was so sick of the “addict” lifestyle. I dont care if this is a “crutch” it helps me sooo much. I have to put kratom in capsules. I can gag just thinking about the taste of the powder. I buy size 00 capsules and love kratom so much i bought a capsule maker.
    I also had 3 back surgeries and I can not believe how much it has helped with my pain.

    Anyone know anything about Kava??

    1. Kava is wonderful. I drink a lot of kava tea or take capsules. I do this because it GREATLY reduces irritability that comes from stress. I love kava…could be placebo…but it works for me. When mixed with a low dose of kratom…synergistic happy plants

  13. Those with Fibro/Chronic fatigue/autoimmune (often caused by metal poisoning, Lyme, several true underlying root causes). I feel for you too!! I have systemic illness from heavy metal poisoning and cavitation/root canal). When people just do not know any better and tell us the best remedy is exercise, etc. (in my case it just pumped the infection deeper into tissues previous to knowing I was poisoned.) would LOVE for exercise to cure this, that would be heaven!! But several Olympic athletes even who have been brought down by some of the root causes I listed above…need much more than exercise in these situations! While clearing these toxins out of our bodies, Kratom IS a lifesaver!!! I am a weird one here, because I love eating the powder straight…especially certain strains can taste yummy. Have had some not so yummy but tolerable. I will chew on it then wash down with almond milk. Stem & vein fine powder, I actually get craving for, must have something in it my body is craving. Started just doing this because I could barely move, pain and disorientation were intolerable so just had to take it the quickest way I could…got use to it. Thinking of adding turmeric, cayenne…maybe some other herbs to the mix!

  14. I have been taking bali indo for about 8 months now, and it has been a God send. I suffer from social anxiety and mild depression, and this stuff has made each day better. My only complaint is the fact that it’s a bit expensive, and my current vendor is having issues with online credit card payments, and is not taking them at this time. No problem, I found another and my my vendors are actually located in the same town as me, so my shipment is here the next day after I order it.

    I would not recommend it as a long term solution however, as I have found myself psychologically addicted. There does not seem to be any physical addiction though

    1. Hello all, i have been experimenting for awhile with different strains for energy and mood with slight euphoria(but not a necessity). I too had been on opiates for pain and found myself becoming overall more productive throughout the day in every aspect of my life, from getting out the door in the morning to conversating with clients, coming home after work and not being lazy, doing laundry..dishes etc. in a great overall mood. Doctor took me off eventually and I came across kratom. Experimented with Maeng Da and it helped get off the pain meds and gave me some of the effects i was missing now no longer being on the opiates. The problem is i had to make the capsules (00)(.05 each) and i had to take 10 at a time to feel the effects. Sooooo I’ve been trying to find a reliable vendor that has a quality product so i dont have to take 10 caps (.05 each) to feel an effect. Any recommendations as far as vendors? I also tried a UEI strain that did wonders but was incredibly expensive. So any and all help would be more appreciative then you know. Thank you to all those who took the time to read and respond.

  15. I just started taking the Maeng Da. I was on painkillers for ,most of my life. I’ve seen doctor after doctor all giving me pain medication. In March of this past year I slowly started to wean myself off of all the medication. I’m off of it all now, totally! A friend of mine told me about Or atom because I was having intense pain. I tried it after I had gotten on Google and researched what Kratom is. I’m still amazed!! Not only does it hep my back, I have bad arthritis in my left thumb and Palm. The pain gets so intense I have to squeeze my thumb and rock back and forth. I took 4 capsules, the pain was gone and I felt so happy and peaceful! How often do you take this? I will not make it a habit.

    1. hi Deborah I have purchased this strane but with no instructions on what to do with it, I have fibro,nerve damage,chronic fatigue and chronic pain from back surgery.. how does it make you feel after 4 capsules. I have a 4yr old so I don’t want to take a lot and be out of it,????

  16. I am a weirdo. I like the taste. Very earthy. I pour 2tsp into my mouth and toss n wash with warm water. Yummy

  17. I have been experimenting with Kratom for a bit under a month. I have several conditions that cause pain (Interstitial Cystitis, Colitis, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis), which were catapulted into an enduring “pain of a different color” when I developed two different stage III cancers (bladder / colon) within four years. The necessarily aggressive treatment was extremely risky and indeed did leave me disabled, and in chronic worsening pain that will never improve.

    So. From the outset, I know, without question, that I AM going to be addicted to *something.* I am delighted that I have an option besides prescribed narcotics now! I had developed a trapped feeling of being at the mercy of the greedy pharmaceutical industry, all the while knowing that these necessary medicines are wreaking havoc on my system, and on my life itself.

    I see so many advantages to choosing the Kratom, and am already reaping the benefits of not being on the heavy-hitting opiates. For the first time in almost 15 years, I am *sleeping* like a normal person! Anybody that takes narcotics knows that they interfere with sleep patterns. For years and years, I had not slept for more than two hours at a time, bolting awake to feel fitful and absolutely unable to sleep again. Now if I wake, I return to sleep…just as I used to way back when I wasn’t so gimped-up!

    The withdrawals form opiates are horrid. I am coming off Morphine, Gabapentin, and Vicodin. It is CRUCIAL to inform yourself about how to best stop the opiate use; some medicines really require a bit of tapering-off time. Anything anti-depressant really, really needs this tapering off, too, as your brain has to teach itself to develop receptors that the medicine provides. It will be great to get over that part of leaving narcotics behind. As I said, I am not even one full month into the experimenting with strains, etc., and I *already* take a whopping 15% of what I was taking …just over three weeks ago! My family and friends say that they notice a huge difference in my overall “vibe;” certainly I feel it. For years, I have searched for and tried alternatives to narcotics, but so far nothing has been able to touch my pain. Kratom *HAS.* It’s real.

    There is a *wonderful* Facebook group called “Kratom (new and current users),” where the community is inspiring and helpful. As doing this (getting onto Kratom) takes experimenting, people are constantly helping one another out with questions and answers. It is crucial since there is misinformation, as well as poor, and even tainted product out there. The board also has vetted vendor recommendations, and people are always chiming in regarding their impressions of sellers. I can not say enough about how very, very much this astoundingly friendly group has helped me. It is an invaluable source of information and support.

    Good luck to all of you…I firmly believe that those who consider trying this amazing plant are people who are sincere in their desire to make the best lives possible for themselves.

    It’s Christmas Eve, and I am writing about Kratom! *That* is how darned impressed and thrilled I am to have found it. May each of you have a wonderful start to 2015, with promise for health and peace. ~jmdm

  18. I have RA, fibromyalgia, depression, and very low energy. What would you recommend me starting out with? I’m new to Kratom. Thank in advance for any and all help!

  19. I have chronic Lyme, chronic fatigue and a crud load of wandering pain. I just tried 1/8 tsp of Bali and I was ready to go to bed. I am super sensitive to any and all things ingested. I was hoping for some relief of my pain but didn’t get much. I did like the fact that it made me sleepy, since insomnia is part of the package. I have scoured though comments on many sites and the common theme is that the effects are different for every one. But can someone help advise on which strain would be the BEST for pain without turning me into a zombie? And if I can get some feed back on the vendor quickkratom.com? Thanks.

  20. i am new to the site and still kind of confused on what to try. I suffer from Fibromyalgia and life long back/neck issues from falling from a high dive to the concrete when I was a kid. Soon to be having 2 level neck fusion and will continue to live with the rest of the degenerated herniated discs I have. Have been on Suboxone about 6 years for chronic pain because a truck load of Hydro doesn’t help. I am interested in finding something that will help with the pain and muscle spasms I have and that will help me want to be productive during the day and in life without making sedated. Any advise will certainly be appreciated. Thanks so much

  21. Just found out about kratom and I am soooo excited. I’d love any advice since I’m just starting out. I need help with withdrawals and cravings from roxis. A little help with depression would b nice too. What r the things I need to b aware of if I go in a shop to buy it. How much does it cost? What is a good dosage for a beginner? Help!!

  22. I have hepatitis C, chrones, and ulcerative colitis and I’ve been in several car wrecks so my back is definitely screwed, before Kratom I couldn’t imagine getting through my day without taking a pill, and because of the hep c, pills are reallllly bad for my liver and can cause cerosis much more quickly because of the fact that your body is already attacking itself and of course your liver. Now I can’t imagine my life without kratom. I used it to get myself off of subboxone as well and I’m telling you now my life is much better for it.

    1. Hi, I have been on suboxone for five years now, and am once again trying to quit, I always run out early cause it’s like they just don’t do me they way they did years ago. Today is day two without sub and my Kratom just came in the mail. I took 1 teaspoon of the Bali kind and have a sample pack of the red vein. I feel nothing. I’m about 190 lbs. Could you give me any insight to a dosage? And does it really work for withdrawal?

  23. After reading these posts, I simply must share my method of ingestion. I’ve been taking kratom on and off for a few years to get through withdrawal from pain meds if I run out. I do a modified “toss and wash.” I get a teaspoon (although I recommend starting with 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon) ready, then I take a swig of fluid, orange juice is best, and hold it in my mouth. I lean my head back and dump the teaspoon into my mouth with the oj, and swallow everything like I’m taking a pill. It works great and I hardly even taste anything. Just for the record, I find green strains best for getting through withdrawal. It really helps to taper off your meds a bit if you can. I find I have to take a lot the first few days, then I can taper off the kratom. I always experience some discomfort during withdrawal, even with kratom, but the intensity is tolerable, especially with Xanax.

    1. Why do u go back ro the opiates? I mean, if Kratom helps with your withdrawal/paws…why the need to revert back ?

    2. I use the method you described as well and have found it to be extremely efficient. I’ve been referring to it as “toss and flush”. If done correctly (it’s a skill that improves with practice), it’s a fantastic way to take the powder loose with minimal taste.

  24. Have never heard of this stuff, sounds like what I have been searching for my whole life, no more depending on doctors that know less than me about addiction, if what Im reading is true this news needs to make world-wide headlines!

  25. I’m also looking for information on these herbs. It’s all new to me. Have had HIV for 33 plus years along with more injuries, conditions and undiagnosable illnesses then I care to remember. PAIN is the only thing that stops me for fighting for my life. We all know pain leads to depression. Been on the narcotic treadmill and withdrew my self from all narcotics but methadone. I would appreciate any research information or input from a long time user of these products. Also interested in best online sites, etc. I’m a science project, should have been dead years ago and I would love to be able to deal with the pain. Peace.

  26. I have a bad liver. I tried kratom a couple times though, loved it, and yesterday my own came and I did it. Today ,after taking about 3-4 tsps last night, I feel really tired and little ill. IS this normal?

    1. The amount you consumed would be considered too large if you are without any tolerance, and there’s the added factor of the impaired liver. Kratom is not a homogenous product – with every new batch acquired, testing is necessary to find the right dose. You may want to test one or two grams next time time, and go up another gram or two with every dose to find your ideal. You may also be a bit dehydrated, so keep water handy. As others will surely attest, less is usually more with kratom.

  27. Kratom is amazing for pain. Although I just use it for mood, I have spoke to many people who are suffering from different medical issues and they swear by it for helping their pain. Its a shame that it is given a bad name and called a drug, there are so many benefits to the botanical and are no proven dangers. I encourage everyone to read up on Kratom and its MANY benefits :)

  28. i get headaches from coffee so im looking for an alternative. As a 4th year med student cramming for the boards and working long hours what might be a recommended strain/dose ? thanks

  29. To the poster who has been on Methadone for years. I was too, 20 years ago. It took me 4 years of failed attempts to finally get off it. It was 10x harder to get off than heroin. It took me about three years to feel like myself again. Anyway, about eight years ago i was taking strong prescription opiates for severe back pain. My doctor felt I’d been on them long enough and would not renew my prescription. Just hearing that started me thinking about w/d nightmares so I began to look online for help. Thats when I read about Kratom. I ordered some, can’t recall what type, but started taking it when I was cutting my pills in half in preparation for running out. The Kratom not only kept me from having intense withdrawl symptoms, but actually made me feel energized, and knocked out my back pain as well. I’ve been taking it ever since. I won’t say its not addictive, because I think it is. But, its a lot less so than any opiate, including synthetics like Methadone. If you read this, and haven’t tried Kratom, you should. I think you could eventually get off the M, if you want. I had many 21 day detoxes off M, and on the last few days felt so bad that I always went back to H., well the very last time I didn’t… Its worth a try. Its a lot less toxic to your system, less addictive for sure, and it isn’t expensive. Just my opinion.

  30. Hi all!! Ok so, I have Fibro, Interstitial Cystitis. I have a baggy that is Bali Kratom 1 oz, I believe. It’s not grinded down. More like crumbled leaves. How much should I take? Should I grind prior to use? How often should I take it? I currently take Percocet every 3 hours for my pain. I’m looking to Supplement this for my pain meds during the day? Is this going to help me? How much and how? Thanks all!!

  31. My favorite are the red stains. I like the sedating effect personally but I always switch it up. My favorite is Red Vein Borneo from kratomcrazy.com

  32. Hi Guys! I go with 3.5 grams of Central Maui Trading Company’s signature Maeng Da in the morning and I’m good all day through work. I have severe neck and back problems due to a car accident I was in as a small child and can barely stand the pain without my daily kratom routine. I do just mix it with water in a bottle and down it. On most nights I make a tea with some lemon, fresh ginger and raw honey with there Red Horn strain (4 grams) and can sleep peacefully through the night. Hope this helps a bit! See ya!!

  33. I have rheumatoid arthritis, Crohns disease and fibromyalgia. I was prescribed a large amount of pain meds for about 5 years. I was still barely functional. Several months ago I started kratom and now have am off all pain meds. I like Red Vain Borneo and Bali. I use around 2-3 tsps as needed through the day. It helps with the pain better than any narcotic and I have tried everything. There must be some sort of anti-inflammatory action in it. I get full blood counts and inflammatory markers drawn every few weeks and they have all been great. I have problems with my liver counts from the meds I have to take. I can’t drink or take Tylenol because of this. I was worried the kratom would do the same but so far my enzymes are fine. If you have liver problems its probably a good idea to have your liver function checked. This stuff has helped so much. I wish I would have found it 5 years ago. I use the toss and wash but add water first, toss in a tsp at a time. I won’t say the taste is great, but it’s not horrible. It is very much trial and error. Start slow and add tsp at a time, wait 20-30 min between doses.

  34. 1-2 tblspns- Maeng da Red

    2 oz- high quality, warm h2o

    Desired amount of honey and/or
    Lemon

    Stir, stir, repeat

    Toss it back, or add to your favorite brand of herbal tea or coffee. Cheers!

  35. I found kratom after having to quit smoking pot for work. It has helped me with energy, mood, and stress, as well as relieving pain from heavy excercise at work (avg. 12 miles walking per day, so pretty sore afterward)

    I am very impressed.

    I find with the powder , i place it UNDER my tongue, (this also aids in a heavier impact, due to the way the mouth absorbs things)

    then i drink any sweet drink, letting a little kratom wash down with each swallow.

  36. i just heard about kratom. I’ve researched and still don’t know about strains and such. I’ve struggled witch interstitial cystitis, fibromyalgia, migraines for 20 years. Three years ago my hip hurt so bad. I fell from the roof onto concrete. I needed a full hip replacement and back surgery. Never had that done and still can’t lay on my sides or back. I just thought that was painful. Almost two years ago I was dx with Trigeminal Neuralgia, it’s called the suicide disease as the pain is the worst known to mankind. Now in TN type 1 which is the 5 th nerve GPN which is the 10th nerve damaged in my brain. This kind of pain don’t come and go. It’s constant 24/7. I’m no longer able to drive, talk much. Talking and eating and brushing my teeth are a nightmare. I’m not on opiates or pain meds. I just exist. Can anyone help me with what kind of kratom to order.

  37. Hey everyone, I just ordered a bunch of kratom from mood and mind. My brother is using it as a recovery from heroine. Ive tried a couple and my favorites are the more stimulating stranes. Can anyone tell me the most energizing types they have tried? Thank you so much. Or suggesions for my brother.
