Hey!

I'll start by saying I have been doing a lot of research and I am aware that results can differ person to person. But I am curious as to what strain works best for a 'euphoric' feeling, in your experience, as I am a recovering opiate addict. (1 year 4 months clean of heroin, 1 month clean of codeine) and I wish to find a safer alternative to curb my cravings. I was thinking green malay, (thinking of ordering from Christopher's Organic Botanicals as he is rated high for quality and budget-friendly.)

Thank you guys :) <3

Christopher’s Organic Botanicals is an amazing choice as well! If you can, do a small bit from both vendors. We call his business COB to save typing. You’ll find his product is completely different from In Sense and they are both EXCEPTIONAL and SAFE. They’ve both got some history helping others.

if you are looking for euphoria you will be disappointed. Since you have an opiate history you will not likely exerience any sensation as the alkaloids kick it.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but even Kratom users who experience a slight sensation of euphoria as the alkaloids kick in lose that feeling with continued use.

Quite frankly I get a better euphoria from a good martini than from Kratom!

christophers is great. but im sure you saw on the website theres a 5 day hold on all chacks before it gets shipped out. this is for new customers only. im in CT and theyre in NJ so now that im already a customer its super fast. in sense/ gold leaf might be your best bet for 1st order. 17 for 3 strains and you usually have it within 3 business days. and you can call to use credit if that helps. or the echeck you can do online. then once you get your shipment order COB to get the ball rolling over there! hope this helps!

You don’t even need to call to use credit (fairly new - supposedly reliable service. I haven’t heard any moaning about issues, so I think it’s a good system).

Thank you, bomalley, I am definitely not looking for a 'high' moreso just looking for an uplifting feeling and something that will at least dampen my psychological cravings for opiates.

Also, general question for everyone - I was told to 'wait an hour and then increase my dose by 1/2 a gram if I don't find it to be working'

I have 2 questions.

1. If i begin with 1 gram, and I don't feel any effects, should I take 1/2 a gram an hour later OR a gram and a half?

2. Since I'm not using kratom for pain, what effects am I looking for to know if it works, just a general feeling of relaxation?

Thank you <3

Hi lumpyspaceprincess,
I’d like to weigh in. Add 1/2 to 1 gram. Err on the side of caution. The OVER line is a mystery, but if you go over, you’ll feel awful.

I tried to explain it the other day.

You won’t necessarily feel relaxed. But it happens.

Best case scenario is you won’t feel much of anything except you’ll be interested in getting up and cleaning the house.

Unless you get one that causes drowsiness.

Next!

lumpy:

Since you are not looking for pain relief I would suggest you do not use Kratom UNLESS you are experiencing cravings.

If on the other hand, you are looking for mood enhancement then more regular adminstration may be necessary.

Start with 2 gms...you will not likely get much from 1 gm (because you have used opiates) and 2 Gms is our recommended starting dose. People seem to be able to tolerate that on their stomach without any negative effects.

So when you get craving symptoms, take a dose of Kratom. Wait at least one hour and if you do not notice any change in your "cravings" then take some more. I would take an additional gram but it is something you have to feel out.

I find that my dose of KRatom wears off in about 4 hours but some people take it only once or twice a day. However I use it for pain control, so keeping my blood level of the alkaloids up is important for getting pain relief.

I think one of our members said on another post that the feeling you are looking for is just feeling NORMAL! You will know this is happening when you realize that you have been able to get on with your day WITHOUT thinking about using something.

Sometimes when I take an uplifting strain, I do not realize it has worked until I notice I have done all the laundry and started several other projects without resting!

It is not a dramatic effect for most people, it is very subtle, like a morning coffee.

It MAY be dramatic if you take too much.....we have all been there....but that is a normal part of finding your way. (Usually just really jittery and shaky and really nauseated "head in the toilet bowl" kind of thing)

It will take AT LEAST an hour for the Kratom dose to be absorbed and have an effect , so be patient.

It is a little hard to say EXACTLY how much or how often, we can only offer guidelines but at least you know it is perfectly safe to keep taking more if you are not getting any relief from cravings.

AND as long as you are not suffering any negative effects, you can keep taking more to find a dose that works.

USUALLY people who have used opioids ( me included) need higher doses because we have many many more opioid receptors that need to be satisfied. I take 6.5 grams 4 times per day.

One thing is for certain...taking Kratom is at least 100 times safer than anything else you may have been taking prescription or otherwise.

Let us know how it goes.
