Hello all,

Just thought I would introduce myself.

Complete newbie that has been reading everything I can about Kratom and that is how I came across this site. :silly:

Background:

Two ruptured disks in the lower back and one in my neck do to a fall while working (Iron Worker) I have been on pain meds for years because of it.

A few weeks ago we were out at our clubs observatory putting on a star party (Hence the name, I like to look at the stars and image them) when my pain meds started to wear off. Told a member I would be right back, went and got a pill and a drink of water. We got to talking about pain management and he asked me if I knew about Kratom... ummm no, what the hell is that?? We talked for a few hours off and on about it and he gave me a little Red Maeng Da to try and how to use it. A couple days later while reaching for my pain meds I remembered that he gave me a little to try out. I started reading everything I could online about it, when the pain was getting so bad I needed something I decided to put 1 tsp into a shaker of water. Now the taste is not as bad as people online make it out to be.. Then again, I like foraging for my own edible mushrooms and wild veggies, so that might help. After about 20-30 minutes I start getting a little relief, not much, but I was amazed.. Why haven't I heard of this before??? I did need to take a small dose of acetaminophen to help but that was all.

Really impressed what Kratom has helped me with so far, and I hope to educate myself more with the help of this forum.

Thank you all,

Starhopper

Welcome Starhopper:

Over time and with some experimentation you will get your favourite strains AND the dosages that are just right for you.

Please read all you can here about developing tolerance and managing some of the effects of Kratom use such as constipation. I would also suggest using a scale (very cheap on Amazon) so that you can be more precise with your doses (I recommend one that measures in mg). A tsp is anywhere from 2 - 2.6 Gms. It is my personal experience that precise dosing is necessary to manage tolerance BUT not everyone here on the forum agrees with me.

You may not have heard of this before BUT YOU HAVE NOW!

Welcome aboard the Kratom Express! You are on your way to the exciting adventure of being in control!

Greetings, I have nothing but respect for the trades and especially the iron workers. I'm a retired underground union laborer with almost the exact same back and neck problems plus I have severe degen. disk disease. Found the site as you did. Haven't tried Kratom yet but am about to make my first order with a sample pack from one of the good friday deals, pain mgmt just isn't cutting it anymore. Hope you find relief!

It will take a little time but once you figure out the strains that work best for you then it's time to find the sweet spot. Everyone is different. I found mine by adding a half mg until I found it. I do recommend a scale. I agree with others that a precise scale is needed however, some people disagree with that and it is ultimately your choice. I will say you are the first person that I have heard that the taste wasn't too bad, LOL. I gag every time when I toss and wash. You might be right in the fact that it doesn't bother you because of your foraging for mushrooms and veggies.
