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.

Hi I am new to kratom I haven't purchased yet. I am trying to learn as much as I can first. The red strains sound like they would be best but I am open to suggestions. I have been using opiates for a year now and its hell. It has gotten so high I do 3 shots a day. I have been trying to taper down and plan to before I get my order. My question is what stain should I get and how much should I take. I plan on getting capsules as I know I wont be able to handle the taste. However if I did opt for the leafs how do you consume or prepare it? Also I might try the liquid as you wont need to take as many capsules. So what should I get and how much to take for my opioid tolerance? Thank you for the help.

Welcome to the best kratom forum ever, Cattycakes (love the name)!

A couple of members will be with you shortly. They have a handy link list for the specific details you are inquiring.

Kratom is more work than taking pills, until you build up your rhythm :-)

Like you said, it’s hell. Kratom will be a great tool for you to detox (FREEDOM!).

They’ll want to know if you’re treating pain or depression or what. Detox is a totally different routine with the same herb. You’ll get advice here on ALL THOSE QUESTIONS.

Glad you found us!

Reply to this later today if you don’t get more posts.

Vendor lists-
www.ilovekratom.com/kratom-vendors

Caps are expensive and you might be surprised how many you will need to take to make one dose to help the transition off opiates.
Socal Herbal Remedies has the best prices I have seen so far. You can search the forum for reviews on this vendor they are not on our list but members have used and reviewed them.
www.socalherbalremedies.com/page/1/?s=sp...stock_status=instock (if their product doesn't show up you need to type speciosa in the search bar.

Good luck and please ask any specific questions you need to get started.

Some suggestions
I would try and stay away from liquids, they are extracts and they will build your tolerance levels quickly.
Red Borneo, Red Bali, Red Maend Da are commonly used to switch off.
But Kratom is different for everyone-
For Greens I would suggest
Green Borneo, Green Malay
White Borneo, White Bali- only after trail and error and you feel reds and greens are not working.

I mix powder in water, Its like dirt water and I do not mind the taste at all. Mixing in orange juice is very common, almond milk, Gatorade, any favorite beverage. And Amazon has cap machines and capsules for capping your own.

I recommend a scale if you order powder, you can measure by leveling a teaspoon. 1 teaspoon = 2grams. But that can be off by a grams depending on the fineness and grind of the powder. (example- goldleafbotanicals.net/product-category/electronic-scales/ )

This is about what I can think of suggesting. I personally did not switch off opiates so I cannot give my own account.
Kratom has allowed me to manage my chronic pain successfully, opiate and pharmaceutical free.

Thank you so much! Yes I am going back and forth about capsules or powders, can I mix in a smoothie? I think I could do that. Also can u mix the powder like 2 g of Bali and 2 g of Borneo for example? Thanks again!

Yup yup yup on all questions regarding mixing in smoothies as well as mixing strains (even vendor of origin) so long as you have the proper dose defined.

Your total powder will be ALL OVER THE MAP during detox. After you’ve kicked pills to the curb, you’ll want to have your dose TOTAL the same, no matter how many strains.

Some folks mix the powder with honey, shape into balls, freeze until ready to use.

There are few limits with mixing.
