10/26/2017 I placed my first order- From Purkratom I ordered Red Bali and Borneo Capsules. Hoping to help my spinal arthritis. I wanted function and better control of my own pain management. Almost from the start I was successful.
I only heard about kratom from watching this by chance- www.cnn.com/videos/health/2017/10/25/gup...m-plant-ebof-pkg.cnn
The impression it left on me wasn't about addiction I had very little history of pain med use. I realized these sisters were looking to treat chronic pain that their doctors were unsuccessfully treating. With kratom their lives seemed better and they became functioning members of their community.

Although I haven't felt any tolerance issues I decided to take my 2 year anniversary and do a stem and vein sort of kratom reset Only for my nightly Red dose. I opened up my "unicorn" Red Stem and Vein I bought a while ago from Re-leaf. Oh boy I was not ready. From what I read about stem and vein most people increase their dose from their normal regular strain dose. Being a caution first type I only increased a little bit. from 2.4 to 2.9. Well I didn't need the increase. Mostly pleasant experience but it was a little bit much just shy away from the wobbles. My nightly Red Stem and vein has being going pretty well. Its been day 4, the alkaloids are different it slightly less pain relief and much more mood lifting. There has even been a noticeable reset with my daily green dose, which I really didn't need to reset but today I took my normal dose of 1.7 grams- I was hit by mild queasiness. So while on stem and vein I will have to lower this dose for the week.

I joined the ILK forum shortly following- November 1st 2017

Happy kratom everyone.

happy kratom day nan! :-P

I would have warned you if I knew you were doing stem and vein. my doses are on the large side and if and when I use s/v its 2-3 grams at a time ( my 'normal' dose is 5-7 g ) just starter day dose. the other one is 3-5 g and I usually only take 2 doses. rarely do I have a 3rd or 4th but on a rare day maybe.

so maybe 1g for you! but I did have 2 full days this week no leaf or stem and vein. it was tough but I did take akuamma, white willow bark, and I S, and either corydalis or skullcap at night. but then again in the middle of vein treatments so I am forbidden in working out or lifting more than 20 lb. so when you cant do as much not in as much pain.. lol..nov is slower so I am trying to taper, do a full reset in jan when its dead. we might even be closed thanks to kitchen upgrades ( yee- ha! )

Hard to believe it! Happy 2 years!

I haven’t tried S & V recently. But, I have noticed the SAME PHENOMENON with Hirsuta, Javanica. Everywhere I read about them, I find drastically exaggerated dose suggestions. I think these dose suggestions were assumptions made by those who came before us and GUESSED what it should be and MOVED ON, LOL.

Definitely go easy on ANY OF THESE and you don’t need more because you weigh more, are taller, etc. PLEASE consider reading about these botanicals before swallowing large amounts of plant material, and THANK YOU, NAN70 for all you’ve contributed here for others AND for all you’ve done to make my personal experience in life more enjoyable! I’m glad you found your way here!

So tonight I lowered the stem and vein and it did not make it any less potent it made it much more stimulating lol.:-?
After I organize a few kitchen cabinets I think I will settle down to some TV watching. It will be a late night. :ohmy:

Although you probably would have preferred to rest, I love this gift of energy and mood lift you got! What a lovely way to celebrate the life changing that began 2 years ago! I’m glad you are making the most of this evening! And likely lowering your tolerance a tad bit.

The full spectrum of alkaloids in the stem n vein product - especially being likely a good 30% leaf product - feel very “clean” and “uplifting” and definitely not impaired. One of my bigger stashes on hand is stem n vein in my ZAPS (fondly named by yours truly) collection!

What a nice way to celebrate you! Praying for your family ongoing.
