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.

Many people here are using Kratom to manage pain, therefore, Red Veins are their forte. I do not have chronic pain and therefore have a difficult time figuring out if Reds are doing much of anything for me.

About the only thing I really get from them - depending on the strain - is just enough mood lift and anxiety relief to know that I have taken a dose of Kratom.

I suppose what I need to start doing is STOP taking Reds by themselves (mix in a White, etc.).....or if I do, maybe mix a couple of Reds, Re-Leaf-style......

lol. The opposite here. I take Kratom for chronic pain and white strains do not do that much for me. The only thing I get from whites is unfocused energy which is annoying without having a project to do. I feel whites give a benefit that my mind/body does not need so mostly its not a useful experience.
Although mixing a bit of white into red has resulted in some very good results.

I use Kratom for chronic pain and find that White Horn has good results for me when mixed with a red.

I have had some success with some yellows but not all.

I do not notice ANY effects from Kratom except pain relief AND sedation.

I did notice other effects when I started a year ago but no longer.

I seem to change "on the daily" ... one day, a certain kratom will work - and then a few days later (after rotating), it will not work.
Whites typically give me the jitters, like too much caffeine, but lately I do mix them in some mornings.
I do like some golds (Bali) - and do get mild pain relief in the late afternoons.
Best,
T

I am having trouble getting good oxycodone, I tried one batch of red kratom from one of the vendors here, it just gives me gerd, does kratom just work for some people?

Hi Jim,

It only works FOR ME when there are no opiates in my system. The two compete for access to the receptors in MY brain.

Yes, kratom only works for people willing to be experimental and patient. Not everyone is cut out for the commitment, for sure.

Hold onto your stuff until you get off the oxycodone and TRY AGAIN! Store your stash in a cool, dark place. It’s amazing if it’s the primary pain treatment.

Some people CAN use both opiates AND kratom and benefit. I have NO IDEA WHY or HOW.

Hope this helps...
