Hello all! I've been curious about Kratom as a means to get off of prescription opioids, and I'm ready to take the plunge. I've decided to make my first order with PDO, and I'm hoping to get some recommendations as to what I should get based on their current stock. A bit about myself: I've been an opioid/opiate user for 15 yrs, during which time I've experienced the full spectrum; from east coast H to entire prescription list. I was diagnosed with RA, and a severe inflammatory disorder (that they haven't figured out yet) so I rely on my meds to be able to work, and function. That said I will take my last dose Monday, then substitute with Kratom from then on. It would be nice to get the energetic/mood boosting effect I get from hydrocodone, and the pain relief I get from morphine. Any suggestions? I'm leaning towards the green riau, red spiked leaf indo m.d., and plantation grown Malaysian red horn from PDO. Thanks in advance to all! Be well..
Steve

Welcome to the forum SteveO and congrats for making the decision to get off the opiets! Be sure and read through some of the related topics here. There have been many people in your shoes including myself that have had great success with kratom. It is indeed a miracle plant!
You're off to a great start with your vendor and the strains. Some great choices. You will have to experiment with the dosages to find out what works for you. We are all made up a little different and will require small adjustments fromantic time to time but it sounds like you have a good game plan so far. The reds work the best for pain relief and fighting withdrawal symptoms. The greens will give you that boost when you need it. Good luck with it and let us know if you have any questions.
You get out what you put in....

Welcome to the Forum SteveO. That's fantastic that you're getting off of Opiates. Congrats Man. It's not an Easy thing to do but with Kratom it is easier. I would Recommend anything from PDO. You'll just have to experiment with the Strains to see what works best for you. Good Luck!

Thank you for your responses! I'm hoping this works,as money is a bit tight. I think I'm going to switch the green riau for white horn Kali md for energy. I'll be sure to report my experiences

Good Choices SteveO. You can't go wrong with any Strain from PDO. I will be looking for the Review. Thanks.

Hi steveO, you made good choices, I have a little of both of those right now, I think I have the batch before yours of the white horn Kalimantan, but it should still be good, the white does give you a good feeling of energy and well being, and good mood, but not too energize where you are jittery. The red horn Malaysian is a very good one to relax with. I've noticed I've had to take larger doses of that one, and it won't give you the dizziness feeling. I'm not sure how it will affect you, but I've taken like 12 grams of that one to get a very good effect, you'll find your sweet spot with both, I'm just saying you may need to take a little extra of the red Malay. Good luck buddy.

Well...I should have made my order last Thursday instead of Saturday morning. Took my last dose of meds before work last night, and woke up about an hour ago feeling like crap. WD's are kicking in pretty good- anxiety, chills/crawling skin, runny nose, and uncontrollable yawning. I HATE this feeling more than anything, and this isn't my first time going through it. I hope my order gets here Wednesday morning, bcuz it takes everything in me to go to work, or do anything feeling this way. I tapered down as much as I could, so it's not as bad as the past, but sucks nonetheless. I pray this plant can give me back "Me", and after the stories I've read I believe it can. I keep telling myself "a day and a half more, just hang on"...anyway thanks again to all for listening, and encouraging words! Be well
Steve

PDO is pretty good about shipping out right away. I remember ordering Friday afternoon and getting a package Monday. So you could get it today. But probably for sure Wednesday morning. I used to hate waiting for my package when I was with drawling, but once it gets there you'll be happy. You may want a large dose though.

Looks like I'm gonna suffer until Thursday with no wd relief. Unless I cave and go to the Dr. Which I've decided is not an option. Usps tracking says it left New Jersey this morning which makes no sense. Why pass South Dakota just to come back? Honestly, I wasted money paying for priority being I ordered Friday and won't receive it until Thursday. Total disappointment...
