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.

I've been using kratom for about a year, I started taking club 13 extra strength capsules and they worked great! but as we all know that has turned out to be wayyy too expensive!! I've started brewing kratom tea as my (cheaper) route of administration, but are not getting the same benefits that I was getting using the extra strength capsules. I understand that the capsules have extracts blended with leaf powder, so I have tried using enhanced leaf powder to make my brew. still does not come close to the benefits I got from extra strength capsules. does anyone have any input as to why this is?

Thanks P.L.U.R.

It may be a tolerance issue. Extracts of any sort can play havoc with your tolerance. I would not use enhanced or extra strength on successive days. But that's me. Stem and vein can help reset your tolerance. There is a lot of info that can help you come back to baseline.

I agree with Kaycee, if the capsules you were taking contained extract then you will require more plain leaf to get the same effects. So you might have a high tolerance from the capsules. This is costly and not very efficient and may lessen the benefits you get from Kratom, If this is the case lowering your tolerance will help you get the most out of just plain leaf powder. (and save you money) :-bd

So if it turns out that tolerance is the issue then you might just need to take a break to get back down to where plain leaf powder does the trick. Stem and vein actually works for me personally, so u might try that for a few to several days then try Kratom again. I will be posting my results for my kratom break i am doing currently in a few more days.

Also with plain leaf powder i find that when i make a tea from it i do not get as good of results like when i just toss and wash the powder, i could be doing it wrong idk. I just find toss and wash to be more effective than capsules or tea for me. I hope this helps some, and good luck getting this figured out :-bd

I actually today ended my break from burning any kratom. yesterday I acquired some Indo white vein from that club 13 vendor and it was plain leaf. I mixed 3 1/2g in some apple sauce and it worked great! I'm still searching for a reliable vendor for quality and freshness, so if you have any certain vendors you guys would recommend that would be great!

Top Notch Kratom, C.O.B, and Earthvine are good about freshness and quality. Them and SoCal are my favorite vendors so far :-bd
