Hello all,

I started taking Kratom roughly 6 months ago to help with my anxiety. It worked wonders but I know I abused it initially. I didn't do much research, my first dose was 4 grams and I just kept taking more and more to get the sedative affect. My tolerance went through the roof. I was able to take breaks with little to no pain or withdrawal but I was definitely abusing it.

About a month ago I switched online vendors hoping to get a better deal. What I got was sub-par kratom and ended up taking around 30g per day for the last two weeks to just to get mild effects. I have now dumped that in the trash.

I plan to order more kratom today from my preferred vendor (who will have my business for life) and it will arrive by this weekend. However, I am on a break right now- today is day 4. We are heading out of state for a wedding and won't be returning until Sunday so my next dose will be a full 8 day break/tolerance reset on Monday next week.

My questions are (and they may be dumb), how do I use this substance correctly? I am seeking anxiety relief, euphoria and energy and have primarily been using super green malay which I love. How much should I start with and how do I determine my ideal dose? How many doses should I take per day and how much time should be between them? What other strains best fit the effects I'm looking for?

I would really love some guidance from people that use this wonderful plant close to daily and are able to keep their tolerance within check. My anxiety can be crippling and this plant helps more than anything else I've ever found.

I will add that I do have one major side effect from taking kratom. I get terrible night sweats. I don't know if this was due to the amount I was taking or just the way my body reacts and my other meds react to having kratom in my system. To counter-act this I have found that if I take 2g right before bed I have no issues.

Would love to hear from all of you with any advice you can offer. It is highly appreciated.

Good morning and welcome to our Kratom tribe!!
This leaf is nothing short of miraculous for me, also helps me with my anxiety, depression… That all stems from chronic pain, so I everyone I will have a slightly different response some more similar than others, but I’ll just give you an example of my daily schedule for chronic pain maintenance… I take 2 teaspoons which equals roughly 4 g 45 times a day .. The main thing you should know about Kratom is less is more more as less… It’s kind of a weird one but it’s true the less you take the more you’ll get out of it… But having taken every day for two years are used to take more and now I take less and I get more out of it so welcome aboard and hope to see you around these parts more… Take care

Thank you for your comment. I'm happy that you've found a great solution for your constant pain. How long do you typically wait between doses? Also- is there any particular strain that works best for you? I don't have any pain- but my anxiety runs rampant. I mast also admit that I have an addictive personality so sometimes it can be hard for me to stick to a regular kratom schedule. This time however, I am going to try much harder and have a journal listing every time I take it and at what time so I can track my intake.

I really appreciate the warm welcome. Can you recommend a strain that you consider to be great for energy, euphoria and anxiety relief? Super Green Malay has been my go to and I love it but I want to add another strain so my tolerance doesn't increase. Thanks again!

Hey there, usually every four hours… But I recently found a type that can last easily six possibly seven hours… Really has to do with your chemistry the type you’re taking and whatever other factors that were not aware of…And then of course tolerance… But a good rule of thumb for me is every four hours, I Deleigh longer you wait the better… For me I love green strains… But I also like more faster reds and whites more like greens....

Stay hydrated and find a few strands from a few different vendors or even the same vendor but nice to have different ones around so that you have different alkaloid profiles with each one… helps keep The effects fresh And helps avoid building tolerance to one particular strain

I’m sure others will chime in as the day moves forward, just like anything too much of a good thing as a bad thing… So keep it minimal but take it when you need it or require relief… Stay hydrated and please share your experience so we know how you’re doing and ask any and all questions you have! Taker easy My friend…

I really appreciate your message. I am also a huge fan of greens. I just ordered 300g from my favorite vendor (am I allowed to share who they are here?). I got 100g of super green malay, 100g of white maeng da and 100g of red maeng da. I like that you mentioned changing strains for the alkaloid content and with 3 choices I should be able to do this easily.

4 hours between each dose makes sense to me. My problem in the past is that I've always been a "more is better" type of guy so even when I feel great I'll take another gram or two thinking it will intensify the feeling- which it doesn't. I attribute that 100% to my addictive personality. I don't want to become addicted- I want to enjoy the feelings when I need it and not have to have it to feel normal. That is my goal this go-round and I'm ready for the challenge. Best to you.

I’ll start by saying that before me and my lady make Love she like to take some Kratom to boost her energy ... we have 4 kids and a busy schedule so energy is lacking and kratom helps her...

For me (38 yo dude) I found that it hasnt negatively effected my libido in any huge way, I’m tired at the end of the day socthe only time we have to be with eachother sex wise is when all the kids are asleep... which plays into it needing Toto have “intentions “ set for some romping around....

If Kratom is at all contributing to affecting libido... taper down a bit and you’ll probably find out if that’s the culprit....

I know exercise and diet , age considerations.... amount of kratom one takes all effects libido ....

So exercise, take the least amount of Kratom to get benefits from it , and ..... hahaha... pull out the lotion and rub your ladies feet and back .... and ... hahaha... my new rule is sleep naked , be in bed before bedtime ....
