Happy Thanksgiving from the I Love Kratom Community!

We wanted to post all the Black Friday Deals that our approved vendors have made us aware of. We have heard that there are a few vendors that are having a tough time staying stocked up. We are confident one of these vendors would love to help you until your vendor is all stocked up again!

I'm new to Kratom and am in awe of this life changing plant! I've been lurking in the forum for about a week, reading and absorbing all the great info.
I originally bought a pack of capsules from my local head shop. I had read enough here to know about different strains. The heads shop guys had no clue about colors when I questioned them. It was fairly cheap so I tried it.
I should add that I wanted to test Kratom for opiate withdrawal and PTSD with horrible anxiety.
To my surprise the cheap head shop stuff worked for my withdrawal symptoms, the aroma didn't last long enough though. I read the reviews here and ordered a red strain sample pack from KwikKratom and as soon as I burned the Red Maeng Da I was sold. I felt better. For my budget their 3 strain sample pack was the best option for a test run I could find.
I am an earth based spiritualist, Pagan, and I believe there is a cure for everything in nature. I've been testing supplements for years in an attempt to get off of subs. I've tried ashwaghanda, 5htp, gaba, l-dopa, rhodiola, l-tyrosine and none of them eased my symptoms.
I lost my Dad unexpectedly this past July resulting in PTSD. I became more dependent on pharmaceuticals in an attempt to numb the pain. Needless to say it was an epic failure and everything became worse.
There aren't words to describe how I feel about Kratom after only a week burning it. So far I have tested Bali from the head shop and Red Maeng Da, Thai, & Malay from KwikKratom. I'm waiting on a sample of White Maeng Da from Mmm Speciosa and have been looking at other vendors so I can start a rotation that works for me.
I would love to hear suggestions on strains, vendors, & blending strains for anxiety, depression, & motivation.
Any advice is welcome!
Thank you all for sharing. Everything I've read here gives me hope. Something I haven't had in a long time.

Welcome, glitterwitch. You're right about nature supplying us with plants to help us. Kratom is one of the best. It sounds as though you've made a good start!

Welcome to ILK Glitterwitch :-h

I like to think that there's a cure for everything in nature as well, think of all of the plants out there in places like the Amazon or even plant life in desert or colder regions that we could benefit from! It's a big world in that sense.

Well anyways, welcome to the forum! Lots of good info here :-bd

Hey theglitterwitch Welcome!:-h I wouldn't buy from any head shops anymore if I were you because you don't know how fresh their kratom is & it is very expensive. Also they sell Kratom as a Legal High. Which it is not. Just some Thoughts. Kwik Kratom & MMMSpeciosa are two Excellent Vendors. I would suggest SoCal Herbal Remedies if price is an issue. You will have to type in Speciosa in the Search Bar to find their Kratom. I love SoCal's Green Hulu Kapuas. Also I just got some samples from OnlineKratom & they are High Quality! :-bd Pharmacy Dropout is another Top Notch Vendor also.

I would suggest Green Malay for an all-around Strain that can show you the full effects that Kratom has to offer. You just have to adjust your dosage for different effects. For motivation White Sumatra & Green Malay Blended. For anxiety I would say Red Borneo or Red Indo. For Depression I would say White Vein Borneo or White Thai. For Insomnia Red Borneo & Stem & Vein Blended. All I can do is point you in the right direction but you will have to experiment to see what works best for you body. Everybody responds differently.

There are so many different names of Kratom that you can experiment with. There are only really 4 or 5 basic strains of Kratom though all with Variations on them. I have found well over 100 different names of Kratom from different Vendors. It can get confusing sometimes. Just take it slow. You will not learn everything about Kratom. I have been using Kratom for 7 years & I am still learning interesting things about Kratom. Let the Journey Begin! (L)

If anybody has any Questions about Kratom please private message me or make a Post & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can usually within 24 hours if not sooner. I'm usually on really late at night Between Midnight & 5am.

Thank you MadMax. I've been reading your posts on other's threads. Such great info you share!
My coworker loves your toss n wash method, I gagged and am sold on the tea.
I've withdrawaled from subs several times, always relapsing back to pills before the PAWS even set in.
When my Dad died my addict friends showed up before anyone else and I had a cocktail of death for a month, I don't know how I'm still alive. Then they stopped supplying me and I got back on subs for some normalcy.
I had my sub dose down to a crumb, it had to be less than .5 mgs.
I took my last crumb 9 days ago, I'm down to the bottom of a bag of Red Malay, my least favorite strain so far, and I woke up nose running and aching. I just made some tea, downed it, and I'm not aching anymore.
I reordered a variety strain sample pack from kwikkratom because of their speed in shipping & price. I'm sure part of the reason they're faster for me is they are in FL & I'm in NC. My sample from mmm speciosa seems to be taking its sweet time. My favorite so far has been Red Maeng Da. I'm a barista so when I read Kratom was in the same family as coffee I started playing with it, like coffee. I made a Kratom latte for a friend with no opiate tolerance and he loved it too.
I plan on doing more experimenting with the espresso machine & Kratom.
I found another forum where they said it wouldn't do right but it definitely did for me . I haven't found any threads here about mixing it with espresso so I think I'll keep brewing it and post my findings in another thread.
I'm going to try your suggestions, it is all so confusing at first, it helps to know what to look for with different vendors.
I want to share this with everyone, so many people I love are addicted.
Thank you so much for all the info!
