Hi everyone,
I'm new to the forum and have a history of opiate addiction. I have bought kratom on and off from head shops in the past but am now trying to kick the opiates for good and feel like I can do this long term because of the availability of kratom.
I stopped opiates 3 weeks and 1 day ago and have been burning kratom since. The problem is I've been buying it from the heads shops (which is ridiculously expensive) and after browsing through this forum, I'm now realizing this may be a problem that I've been buying an extract. I'd like to start burning plain leaf and buy online from some of the vendors you guys have recommended in other posts.

The kratom I've been purchasing is called "Happy Kratom" and the bottle says Jumbo Maeng Da Capsules - Natural Maximum Potency - Enhanced Chemical Free Extraction.

I tried to find info on this online to find out how potent it is but couldn't really find anything. Does anyone have any experience with this particular brand?
Will I be okay if I purchase plain leaf online from a good vendor after taking this extract?

Any feedback would be very helpful! Thank you! :)

Welcome to the forum xangel :) and congratulations on beating opiate's. I've personally never used the enhanced brands, only the regular powdered leaf, which works very well for many things. I can imagine purchasing at a headshop would be quite expensive.
Also, I don't see any problem in changing to an online vendor and using regular leaf, it may mean taking more to experience the effects of course. From what I've read the enhanced brands cause your tolerance to build quicker, so that's another good reason to change. For opiate withdrawal the standard recommendation is a red strain Red Borneo, Bali, etc......but as I'm sure you've read, everyone responds differently. Possibly ordering a sample pack from one of the vendors would be your best way to go, experiment with what works for you. Good luck and again welcome, I'm sure others with more experience will post and give you more information.

I have never heard of Happy Kratom. I guess if it works for you that is a good thing. If you check our the reviews on this forum and approved vendors I think you will feel more secure in your purchase. Many, many years ago, I am a senior now, I had an addiction to opiates, from having a bad back and also liking the way it made me feel normal. I have been using kratom for a while now..my favorite vendors are Pharmacy Dropout and Online Kratom. I also use MuSynergetics which I also like. All of these have great products and excellent customer service. Kratom is a very unique plant..for me it depends on time of day, amount I take, and of course strain & vendor. Hope this helps..Good Luck

Glad to have you on the Forum xangel. I also have a history of opiate addiction & couldn't survived without plain leaf Kratom. Yeah sounds like you were taking an Extract. Definitely stronger than any plain leaf Kratom but you should make the switch to plain leaf with no problem. Just be sure & not to take too much.

With Kratom less is more. Also be sure & to take your Kratom dose on an Empty Stomach like 2-3 hours after eating. Kratom works the best on an empty stomach. Ensobotanicals is a site that has a wealth of info & many articles you can check out. Here is the Link:

If anybody has any Questions about Kratom please private message me & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can.

Thank you everyone for being so welcoming and for the tips. I really appreciate it!

I purchased my first batch of plain leaf Kratom and also some samples based on info you guys gave me here. I also bought some of the pill capsules to take it, I just don't think I can stomach the toss n wash just yet.
I'm excited to learn more about this and also mix up the various strains to find what works best for me.

I'm so glad this forum is here which provides such great information and that people are so actively involved. I would be lost right now if this weren't here! I'm very grateful!
