Happy Thanksgiving from the I Love Kratom Community!

We wanted to post all the Black Friday Deals that are approved vendors have made us aware of. We have heard that there are a few brands that are having a tough time staying stocked up. I am sure one of these brands would love to help you tell your vendor is all stocked up again!

Jeff I love you and your kratom but, I'm just not feeling it anymore. I'm not going thru withdrawals from burning five grams a day maybe twice a day. But I noticed that I wasn't getting any effect. I would get maeng da from moonkratom.com which i guess it was good because it would sedate me but the awful taste of it and headaches sucked bad, so all in all I'm taking a break. Maybe a month or something. I got to go to Tennessee in a month so I'll have to give it up for a Lito while because TN has banned it.

A month should help reset your tolerance. Are you burning the same strain or are you rotating strains?

Rotating by vendor but always maeng da. I know this should help plus I just need a break.

I think the Problem is you are taking the same strain all the time. Maeng Da tends to be one of the Strongest Plain Leaf Strains also. Also Vendors name their Strongest Strains Maeng Da. So you need to be rotating Strains at least every week.

I make different Combos everyday & take different Dosages of one Strain everyday. Also I take it at different times day after day. Sometimes I'll break a dose in half like take half of a dose then 1 hour later take the other half. I try different things to keep my Body Guessing. I always take it on an Empty Stomach because if I have something in my Stomach then it doesn't work nearly as well for me.

So If I were you I would change different Strains every Week at the least. Your body can get used to just one Strain even if it's from other Vendors over time & the effects will be very weak because of Tolerance Buildup if you just keep taking that one Strain over & over again. There are so many different Types of Kratom. I would Branch Out.

There are also Potentiators like Magnesium, Vitamin C, White Grapefruit Juice, Turmeric & St. John's Wart. I take Magnesium once every day before I start my day with Kratom & it keeps my Tolerance Level down to a Reasonable Level. There are many, many Vitamins, Herbs & OTC Pills that can Potentiate Kratom. It is very wise to use them if Kratom is not working like it used to & to keep your Tolerance down.

Also Stem & Vein is good for Tolerance. S&V is great for mixing with any Plain Leaf Strain because it has different Alkaloids than the Leaf does. Plain Leaf is about 25% Stronger than S&V. It gives you a different experience. S&V is not as Strong as Plain Leaf but it can be a different experience. Whenever the Suppliers Process the Kratom they Remove the Stems & Veins to make it more pure & stronger. If they left the Stems & Veins in all their Kratom then all of it would be more Sedating than anything else. S&V is great for Insomnia when mixed with another Slow Strain like Red Borneo.

If you have any Withdrawals from Kratom then Coricidin HBP or Imodium is very good for that.

Max, I've been meaning to ask you, when you mix s&v with plain leaf do you increase your dose? Do you get effects from s&v alone?
I'm lucky in that when I'm not feeling kratom if I skip just a day it re sets my tolerance.

I would suggest not buying Maeng da every time. There are so many different strong strains out there to choose from. Lately I've only been taking MD like once or twice a week. Divine shaman has almost 30 different varieties to choose from, the ones I've tried are very high quality and get the job done right. The "senangs" are all really good Indonesian strains, and the "seharis" are potent. Just try different varieties if you don't want to take a month off.

Ya I have to budget so I'll have to wait till next month. I also will be going to TN and it's banned there so I'm just going to have to stick it out. Oh well I wished I could bring it but I'm not taking any chances.

When you mix Stem & Vein with Plain Leaf you will most likely take a lower dose of Plain Leaf so you can fill that with S&V. So you will be taking the same amount Total but less Plain Leaf. If that doesn't work for you then you can go back to your original dose & then add like 2grams of S&V. You will have to experiment to see what works best for you. I always take like 2grams less Plain Leaf & Then Replace that with S&V but that is what works for me. You will have to find out what best works for you.

You can get some Sedative & Relaxing effects from S&V alone but it won't be as Strong as Plain Leaf. It will be more Subtle. That's why it's Best to Mix it with Plain Leaf so it can reach it's full Potential. Hope this answers your Questions Laura.

I think a month off would re-set your tolerance very well, Ball. I agree about not wanting to take any kratom across state lines where it's illegal. It sure wouldn't be pleasant going to jail- it's just not worth it.

I took a day break and tried some and my tolerance reset a little. I have been in depression for four and half years. I know many here would say be careful while taking medication while burning. They put me on Prozac after trying so many other antidepressants and man, what a difference I feel. I know this is a kratom forum but it makes me so much happier but combined with kratom and burning makes me feel simply content. No worries or anything. A very nice feeling.
