For the past 6 weeks or so I have been burning 5-8 grams of a relaxing strain of kratom 5-6 nights per week. I alternate between RHB and RI. At first I noticed that relaxed euphoria feeling that prepared me for a good nights sleep; however, that was not always the case. My body would be relaxed but my mind would still be a little racy. This didn't happen all the time. Now for the past 2 weeks I have been noticing slightly different reactions. I guess it's a tolerance issue but not in a bad way. I don't notice as much relaxation or euphoria (it's still there) but I have been noticing that I fall asleep much quicker now and get deep restful sleep and I have been putting the same amount in the burner. In fact even 4 grams achieves this sometimes. Anyone else notice anything similar.

Closer to 7 or 8 grams I have certainly experienced this with reds, especially one in particular. I have a lot of trouble sleeping, but once I get there with this amount it is certainly very restful. I have found that there is a window sometimes that I can't always replicate on the higher end where I can go to sleep quickly no matter what is going on around me. If I miss it we are back to the norm, but if I'm able to get to sleep in this window it is super easy to fall asleep and the most restful sleep you can imagine.

With some strains my mind will be awake but my body is really relaxed, I've noticed this with a Bentuangie from SoCal herbal R. There are a few others but I try not to take those past 5 pm. What I have been doing lately is I usually take my last dose between 4:30 and 5:30, but then at like 7 or 7:30, I will take like 5 to 7 more grams of a medium to strong red and when it's bed time, I'll watch tv for a while but once I close my eyes to go to sleep I'm out within 10 minutes usually. It gets weird sometimes because I feel like I'm dreaming before I'm fully asleep.

I've had that sensation of dreaming with awake lots of times lately. I've been taking about 7 grams of Cambodian MD before bed nightly and this happens regularly. I really enjoy it. It's not hard to cross that border into sleep from there, but it's a little like lucid dreaming while it's happening. Very interesting stuff.

The mind awake while body asleep used to happen with RHB but now when I burn it both my body and mind are relaxed. I never got the wandering mind from Bentuangie from SoCal. But that stain did smell smokey/mesquite. I probably could of used it as chicken marinade.

A couple of times after burning kratom and going to bed, it felt like I was floating and spinning around. It happened once after burning Red Bali and once with Red Horned Borneo.

--gmantheman-- that Bentuangie did have a very strong odor I agree, never had kratom smell like that, kind of neat. I really like the way it makes me feel, it could have been making my mind awake from a strain I took before that one, who knows. I like mixing it.

Very Interesting gmantheman! You are not going to get the exact same effects each time you take a dose because of all the different Factors to consider like: how empty is your stomach, Tolerance Level, each dose can't be exactly the same each time you take it, How much water you drink with it, what have you eaten last, what kind of other medicines are you taking, Are you drinking any Alcohol, What time did you take each dose at, How you feel the night that you took the does, When was your last dose taken & so many more.

What time did you take each dose, the dose & how you felt at the time are big ones to consider. Kratom cannot make you feel great if you are feeling bad already. It can only make you feel ok if you are feeling bad but if you are feeling good then it will make you feel great etc.

I agree with you on the Bentuangie from SoCal. It does have a strong weird odor & it's great for making blends. Great for Bedtime.
If anybody has any Questions about Kratom please private message me & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can.

Right on, Max! I woke up feeling like dirt, to0k some thai and now I feel average, which is great!
Everybody and their adjectives! What does 'strong weird odor' mean?

Laura

P.S. I need to amend that. I feel better than average. I love thai the best, and I don't see it mentioned much. It's a red vein which is described as relaxing but also as a stimulant, which i don't get.

That is true Max that there are different factors that come into play. I do try to keep somethings relatively similar. I try to burn about 2.5 to 3 hrs after dinner and about 15-30 min after taking a magnesium supplement. I don't think I have ever burned after consuming alcohol...maybe once sip of beer. I don't weigh anymore but use a measured 1/2 teaspoon. I did weigh before on a electric food scale but that only measure whole numbers. So 1/2 teaspoon has been equal to 1 gram no matter the vendor or strain.
