Just wondering if anybody has come across any Kratom Alternatives that has worked for you? I got good results with Passion Flower. I was surprised how good it lifted my mood for several hours & is an excellent potentiator for Kratom. I have been trying to buy a few different Herbs & blend them together to try to mimic the effects of Kratom but so far nothing has come close. I have tried about 8 Different Herbs. I have yet to try Hirsuta or Javanica but I've heard you have to take about twice as much as you take with Kratom to get similar effects so that's not good.
If anybody has any Questions about Kratom please private message me or make a Post & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can usually within 24 hours if not sooner. I'm usually on really late at night Between Midnight & 5am.

Believe it or not, I find Marijuana to be a good alternative. Rec mj is legal were I live. I have driven or worked after taking mj but I tried it a few times after work and on the weekends. Some strains I can take and do work around the house. They are uplifting and a little stimulating similar to a green or white but with more of a head buzz. As far as other herbs, I haven't looked too much into them.

I think you've told me before....are you making Passion Flower tea? You don't get it in a powder form, do you? Mine is not, it's basically chopped up - herb form. Was just wondering how you take it with Kratom. Maybe take your Kratom and then drink your tea?

As far as cannabis goes, I wish it was legal where I am at.....because there are so many strain options. I'd like to try some different ones. On the other hand, I really hate smoking.....edibles sound great but I'm sure they're even MORE expensive.

Buying marijuana illegally, you have 0 control over what strain you're getting and the effects.

I put some mj but in the oven for about 40 min and then put in a protein drink. The effects from that didn't kick in until almost 2 hrs later. It was more of a body relaxation feeling. I could think clearly but I was just more relaxed. I also tried an indica infused tea shot. I was hoping it would help me sleep and get rid of the pain I was having in my pec and shoulder area. In retro spec, I should have only drank 1/2 or 1/3 of the bottle. That drink was too strong. I couldn't sleep. I felt like I was flying in space and the sound from traffic outside sounded like spaceships. Edibles are a good way to consume mj but it takes longer for the effects to kick in and the high is more intense. I guess you could try CBD oil or CBD edibles. I am not sure if those would be illegal.
