Hi! I'm a 33 year old female, 4 days off of oxycoconde. 50-80mg daily habit.

I am 5'2 260 lbs.

I have just taken 2 grams of green maeng da capsules from Apex kratom.

I am 45 minutes in and feel no different. I feel nothing, in fact. Have I gotten a bad product? Do I need to take more? Is it too late to take more? I don't know what to do right now.

If anyone can help me. Should I pop another MG right now? Wait until 90 minutes have passed and do it? Give up?

Welcome !!!

You found the right place to get help figuring this out,
Good job on 4 days off oxy, that’s great!!

Since I didn’t come off opiates when I found kratom, Some one else will be able to answer better than me. But I’d say because your freshly done with those meds that you have a higher tolerance than someone who wasn’t taking opiates would. Your receptors are saturated and it will be a little while before they reset and to you feel the other benefits of kratom. There is no harm in taking more . Two gram is a safe starting point , now that you’ve done that I’d say( others might disagree ) take another 1- 2 gms and wait an hr. If nothing than another 1- 2.stoping there .... next time you dose take 3-4 gms to start. The idea is starting low and adding more till your find what works best for your chemistry. Are you taking because WD? This will really help according to other members testimonials I’ve read. Be cautious of taking to much ( at any point ) because the effects aren’t enjoyable if over done, but most likely you’ll need a bigger starting dose... 3-4 gms, wait 45-60 minuets add 1/2-1tsp more and so on
This herb takes some time to know what amount and what strain works for you.

I gave info spit back at you from what I’ve read from member here , others will have more to add perhaps .

But rest assured, kratom is effective, everyone is different in how much you need , and past med history will affect the dose needed.

This is such a warm community you reached out to and I’m sure you’ll find more help on how to get relief from this very special leaf . It takes time and experimentation , good luck and don’t give up just yet (L) your just starting the adventure !!!(L) >:D

Thank you so much for answering!! So, since the 2mg I just took another 1. It has been about an hour now. So I am going to let this 1 g sit and see how it goes.
Im taking for withdrawal and also pain. Anxiety too. I wouldn't mind feeling a bit euphoric of course as well lol

Also, since they are capsules will that change anything? I had about 600 calories of 30% protein, 50% carbs and 20% fat before taking it. Then I read it should be on an empty stomach and mentally kicked myself.

Absolutely on a empty stomach to start . Theres a index section to look at different topics and a search bar where you can find others who’ve gone through this. Lots of reading from past threads is a good thing to do ,

Also quality vendors are key, we have vetted vendors on this site and all are pure unadulterated kratom and GMP co pliant. Very important!!!

Always take on a empty stomach and don’t eat for at least 30-45 minuets after dosing

This is such a worthwhile thing in my opinion to not give up on, it’s a beautiful herb and takes some figuring out. Totally worth it !!! You got this !!

My biggest thing was having to use a credit card to pay for it. And Apex takes credit. Well, technically it's my PayPal a count that I pay from, so a PayPal card. I couldn't find anyone else taking credit.

Nature’s Cure , insense / gold leaf botanicals , Pharmacy Drop Out , and RE-LEAF are top shelf vendors , red vein kratom I hear is best for opiate wd, white is for energy, green is in between, buying sample packs is smart so you can try variety and see what works best !!

Insense botanicals lets you pay with credit card over the phone, others except eChecks and other forms of payment as well as credit cards some times ,that’s a issue many vendors are facing right now. There’s lots of good vendors out there, and lots of not so good ones. The vendors approved by this community are safe, trustworthy and good company’s to support. They want to help and emailing them if you want to ask specific questions is Good idea


Empty stomach is important, capsules are more pricey than straight powder, do lots of reading back logs from here. Check out the index at the top of the page and do searches as well, there’s a wealth of info in past threads.

And give yourself a huge pat on the shoulder, getting off opiates is worth doing but not the easiest thing to do. Good job

Other members will chime in later , and our lovely Laurie is a true gem, she has good advice and has helped too many people to count !!!

Some people swear by capsules, but others say they dissolve unevenly and therefore take a little longer to take affect, I’m a powder guy, good to try powder for economical reasons , you can measure out grams and mix with juice/ water or liquid of choice , or do the toss and wash method . That’s tricky to do with breathing in the powder, different ways for diff folks , I like midi mine with OJ.

Tysm! Do you know if any of those places have sample packs for cheap? I'd rather not buy 80 dollars worth of the stuff if I find it doesn't work for me. It's been 2 hours now and I feel nothing. I took 4mg green maeng da
