We could give you more precise information if we knew WHY you are taking the Kratom. What effects are you seeking? Energy? Pain Relief? Help with opiate withdrawal? sedation vs stimulation? support for mood disorder like anxiety or depression?

Starting dose is usually suggested at 2 Gms BUT could be more or less depending on your opioid tolerance and the effects you are seeking.

Best advice is to start LOW (under 2Gms) to see how you tolerate it and then adjust the dose more or less to get the best effects with the lowest dose you can.

It is a bit of an experiment.

Dosage for kratom doesn't go by body weight.

As Bomalley says, your dosage will depend on what you want it to do.

Generally, 1.5 g of Maeng Da is a good place to start. It's allegedly stronger than other strains. With other strains, I'd start with 2 grams. After 40 to 60 minutes, add another 1/2 gram to 1 gram if you aren't feeling effects yet.

I keep a journal of my kratom use. I jot down the effective dose of each strain, because each strain is different.

I have seen tiny women need 5 grams of kratom for energy. I have seen 225 pound men fall asleep on 2 grams.

Dosage depends on strength of product, tolerance, and each body's way of metabolizing the alkaloids.

It happens with other medications, too. I gave an 800 mg ibuprofen to my 6'4" friend. He fell asleep on the floor. My husband is 250 pounds, 6'3" tall. He will get great pain relief and he will fall asleep on half the amount of norcos or percocets it takes for me to feel any pain relief.

I hope I am understanding what you are saying...

IF you are getting no effect from Kratom OR opiate pain killers... then it stands to reason that your body's opioid receptors have developed a high tolerance. What this means is that they are not as sensitive to the alkaloids as they once were and larger and larger doses are required to get the same effect.

The ONLY way to down regulate that is to give your body's opiate receptors a rest and go without for a while.

It may take months but eventually your tolerance will come down.

Sorry I wish I had better news. Anyone who has used opiods for a long period of time has struggled with this effect.

This is precisely the reason that opioid use is usually not successful for long term pain management and is NOT recommended as best practice in the field of chronic pain management.

AND it is also precisely the reason WHY Kratom must be used responsibly and knowledgeably.

WELCOME TO THE BEST KRATOM FORUM EVAH, vfabio1193.

First, you must get your tolerance down. You may find better relief from kratom extract products IN THE SHORT TERM, but the problem of high tolerance only goes away one way, abstain from opiates.

Like BoMalley said, sorry for the bad news.

I hope you consider quitting the opiates versus the extract route, because extracts are also addicting and will ruin your chances of benefitting from the leaf, which can be very helpful in the long term with no problematic addiction issues (compared to opiates).

Let us know how you're doing.
Laurie
