A common misunderstanding that many beginners make when using Kratom is that they only buy one type and use it over and over. At first, it works well, but in the end you will see that the effects are getting weaker.

Rotating Kratom is important for a specific reason, and that is to keep your tolerance low. When you use the same kratom type every day day in day out your body will become used to it, which will make the effects less potent because your body builds a tolerance over a period of time.

Imagine doing the same exercises every day. It's hard at the beginning, but your body will ultimately find a more efficient way to execute them. If you do not do that exercise every day, your body is not so used to it. With constant exposure to the same, the body will find a better way to process or make use of it.

Stagnant Strain Syndrome
This was a term that simply refers to the effects of using one strain of Kratom over and over again.

When this happens you begin to see an increase in dosage to get the effects you normally would get when you first started taking the strain. This is called Stagnant Strain Syndrome and it can be avoided in a simple way. The smart Kratom consumer will switch and mix up their strains of Kratom in order to stay away from the Stagnant Strain Syndrome effect of one particular strain.

What you must understand about Kratom is each strain has its own effects on the body. In essence, the different strains are basically the same plant. The maturity of the tree, the drying and production process, change the effects of what we know as the three different types of Kratom.

The alkaloids in the strain of Kratom you are currently using are independent from any other strain, which means you will be exposed to this particular strains combination of alkaloids. The maturity of the tree, the drying and production process influence the alkaloid content.

Kratom tolerance is a real thing – and aggravating, so make sure you adhere to these tips below.

How do you rotate kratom?
Rotating kratom means that you have to use a different type of kratom type every day to experience desired effects. Preferably, 5 to 7 species should be in your rotation. It is also possible to do create 'Kratom Fusions'. You can mix two strains together, in this way you can easily take Kratom everyday with only 3 different strains of Kratom. The more different strains, the better.

If you want to take the same favorite strain again, it is best to take the same kind again after about 3 days. The more often you take the same kind without rotation, the more tolerance you build, making that particular strain much more difficult to experience effectively.

One thing you can do if you'd like to use the same strain on the same day several times is to take a slightly larger dose to match the desired effect. The best thing is to do this after about 3-4 hours from the last time you took it.

So how many types do I need?
This is different per person. If you do not want to use Kratom everyday (beginners) then 3 is the minimum. But to keep the tolerance effective in daily use, you must have about 5-7 species as mentioned before.

Each species has its own strength and specific effects and we usually prefer another effect every day. Monday can be Mood Lifting, Tuesday can be energizing, Wednesday can be relaxing, Thursday can be focused, Friday can be Mood Lifting, Saturday can be energizing, Sunday can be relaxed etc.

This is just an Example of How you can go about Rotating Strains Throughout the Month:

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.

Good info. I have recently started switching between strains. Not sure how it is really working yet, but seems to be fine. I don't know that my tolerance was creeping up, or if I just hit a bad stress spell and took an afternoon dose to counter my mood.

I like to feel like I can use an afternood dose as needed without my tolerance creeping up. I am going to order some stem and vein just to be on the safe side. There are a few really lame videos on youtube from folks complaining that they were addicted. However, I cannot help but think they were addictive types looking to just get high. I think the true Kratom community is people like those on this list. We take Kratom as a medicine and manage it just like a med.

Humans blame substances for their actions.

SUV’s do not plow into glass windows, but they do on the news! Oh yeah, a driver might have been involved?! That’s how people are learning! TV!

Planes land on freeways and kratom causes *name your problem here*. Nobody takes any personal responsibility for choices we are lucky to have! The addicted souls assume we are ALL ALIKE and they couldn’t control their use, so it should be illegal (so they aren’t tempted and we cannot even try it).

I’m in recovery and there is an undeniable difference between many of the regular posters here and the abusing-drugs community. I think people should have a right to abuse cereal if they wish, not illegality.

I cannot drink a half a glass of wine! I don’t run around picketing liquor stores.

Responsible behavior or ADMITTING responsibility would really help us as humans evolving toward a better future. It would be refreshing.

I’m with you tiger… Well put Laurie !!& What a different world it would be if we all end up to our own stuff; not point the finger at somebody else says the cars are the reason… But I’m sure that happens, personal accountability, that would be something versus blacklisting something because it doesn’t work for someone because they have their own stuff to sort out!

Hope y’all are having a wonderful Tuesday, much love… Much respect… Peace and Kratom

It’s cool if not everyone agrees with me. We all have freedom to enjoy our own opinions and mine are my own, not ILK endorsed or anything.

Just providing a DISCLAIMER because I don’t want people to feel like they cannot enjoy the forum if they don’t agree.
