  1. I just tried the Bali kratom I’m now in 60 mg of methadone and came down from 202mg I just started feeling uncomfortable skipped my take home dose just tried kratom hours ago and feel very Good

  2. Hi Michael
    Try red and green Bali, red Agatha, reds work very well on pain, combined with some greens like green Bali gives you energy, too. Also try green and red Agatha from Christopher’s organic botanicals.
    I wish you complete relief from your pain. I’m in the same boat and kratom has given my life back.

  3. Methadone is actually more addictive than pain pills and heroin. I was an addict for 15 years. I’ve been sober for 5 years. But anyways. I find that a red indo or a red maeng da is great for pain relief and opiate withdrawal I myself use a red maeng da for pain relief but that’s just my personal preference red Bali is supposed to be great for pain relief as well. I hope you find this info useful!!!

    1. ZERO evidence for Methadone being “actually ‘More’ addictive than Heroin” I’ve taken PharmacyTech 1 & 2 and three of my close family members are Registered Pharmacists- and THE ONLY PEOPLE who say this are addicts who are 0% formally educated.

  4. I have been using Kratom for over 4 years as an alternative to medicine. I suffered a lot from severe pain. After using Kratom Powder I don’t feel pain anymore. Actually, Kratom is a natural painkiller supplement which works well for every person. This also helps to recover mental depression as well.

    Happy to use Kratom for a long-term.

    1. Josie which strain do you use?

    2. Do you know if it is safe to take some pregnant? I have been using kratom for chronic pain and my husband and I are trying to have another baby. Any info welcomed. Thank you.

  5. Thank u very much Jane. I was involved in an accident in 2004 and suffered fairly painful injuries. It was the worst pain I have ever been in. When I was released from the hospital after having my broken jaw wired shut, the doctors sent me home with some weak liquid Hydrocodone,.which I had never had pain medicine, until that point. NEEDLESS to say I had to find stronger medication for my pain. I became hooked on oxycontin for a period of ten years. I then decided to get on a methadone clinic to control my addiction. I am on a fairly low dose of only 70 mgs, and I would like to find out which KRATOM strain will help me with withdrawals and anxiety. I never planned on becoming addicted. Some things you can’t erase no matter how hard U try. Pain is only a ghost if you just stop feeling it. These last two lines are from 2 songs by two different bands. One of the songs is by TRAPT and the other is by COHEED and CAMBRIA. I hope these words resonate for those of you that think addiction is so easy to overcome. It can happen to the best of us. So many of us have this on common.

    1. Michael – I’ve been on suboxone for a while after getting carried away on painkillers myself for about the same amount of time as you specified so I understand completely. I like the RED MAENG DA or BALI. I take around 4-5 grams twice daily. I’ve only been taking the Kratom for a couple months so I’m a beginner myself to this world but there are definitely warm euphoric vibes mixed with a stimulant like energy, so it’s a nice combination. Being so damn tired was one of the worst WD symptoms when trying to get off the hydro,oxy or methadone/suboxone…..I haven’t completely eliminated the suboxone yet but am down to under 2mg a day and dropping which is extremely low. After being addicted to opiates for so long I’m highly skeptical of anything that claims to help…. but Kratom defieilty helps. Best of luck my friend. Email me if you have any questions bro.
