BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND...
A few months ago we asked some of the Approved Vendors to offer some discounts to our community. A lot of them graciously did. We have been asked to bring those discounts back. The following vendors would like to share the love for this forum with you. I know we all appreciate it.

Hi everyone,
My wife and i are relatively new to Kratom. We use it for different reasons. We own an animal clinic where i am the manager and the head vet technician and she is the Doctor. We have been buying the stuff from all over and trying to get the best price and quality. We love this plant, it's amazing properties have done so many wonderful things for us both and we would do anything to keep it available to help anyone in need. We want to research into the use for animals and apply it to our everyday job. We recently feel like the effects are not as potent or strong as they used to be and were wondering if anyone knows if this routinely happens or if we are just not getting quality plant. Any suggestions are welcome....

I have tried the cheapest kratom, and I get no effects from it at all, I've tried the top rated/priced vendor and it was just average. I use Christopher's organic botanicals in our approved vendor section. He always has good quality and you build a trust with him. I always pay with money order. Get 7 different strains ranging from white, red, green, yellow and rotate them each day (different color everyday) and it help to keep the tolerance at bay. There's a lot of talk on the subject and a user posted about a ceiling affect. Less is better, and more starts to decrease any stimulation you've felt from it.

Your tolerance is set at 10 right now. Try lowering it a gram a day. Stick with 3-5 grams. That would be the maximum potential of kratom. After a while it'll be set at 3-5. Also look into stem and vein. Almost every vendor has it. You can take 10 grams and your only get about 5 grams worth of effects. It helps lower tolerance.

Welcome!
In addition to 'resetting' your tolerance levels, you can investigate potentiators - I like turmeric.
Best,

If the effects are not as strong and you are still using the same vendor this is quite likely just tolerance. Just like real opiates, your body does devleop tolerance so it is important to manage your dose.

Thefrogshateme has given some advice about lowering your dose to reset your tolerance, that is one option. OR you could just keep it where it is, measuring your doses very carefully to make sure you are not increasing the amount. If you do not have a scale that measures in mgs it is very easy to increase your dose. 100mg of Kratom powder is not much bigger than the size of your pinky fingernail.

So are you using a scale to measure your doses precisely? and are you taking 10 grams per day (in divided doses) or 10 gms per dose?

A starter dose is usually recommended at about 2 Gms.

Hi, I am new and am hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. I have severe neuropathy and disc disease and am currently taking oxycodone, Embeda, Lyrica, Cymbalta. I also take Seroquel for pretty severe insomnia.

How do I titrate down on opiates and up on Kratom? What dosage do you suggest to start? I think that I should start on the Reds or am I wrong? Do I have to be off the opiates completely before adding Kratom? Even with my opiates the neuropathy is a 24/7 pain that never leaves only calms itself down with the opiates and the Lyrica. What about the Lyrica which affects the GABA receptors, can I use Kratom with the Lyrica.

Thanks for all your help in advance!
