It also has Yerba Mate, which is high in caffeine, and Green Tea leaves. It looks like they don't want to label it as being, in part, a caffeine supplement, but it appears likely that it is.


I was on a guarana kick for a while , would add it to my Yerba mate brew with fresh ginger and turmeric roots ... some maple syrup and 1/2&1/2.... soooo good .... time to get back into that !!! But the guarana was fire ... major octane that felt very clean for my system.... just caution on the dose .... 1/2 - 1 full tsp.... was my amount

Welcome to the best kratom forum ever, Gnarmar! Hope you’re feeling much better and your words of advice are appreciated! Mixing too many things, pharmaceutical or not, can lead to THE GREAT UNKNOWN and kratom is also metabolized uniquely EACH TIME.

I would like to caution you about taking kava kava for an extned period of time with other alkaloids. I had a terrible experience where I was taking these Energy Now pills for about a week (I love this product) while drinking about 15 grams a day of kratom and I took kava for about a week and suddenly I got panic attacks. First they were mild and then they were intense. So bad I went to the ER. But I stopped taking everything and the panic attacks went away. If you study kava you will find out that it changes the metabolism of certain things and plus there is Ashwagandha in those Energy Now pills which is a plant that has MAOI properties. So I think it was this combo that gave me panic attakcs which were only quelled with alprazolam. Many of doctors today dont study plants so much because of greed so the ER doctor had no idea what was going on with me. So I would encourage you to read as much as you can about the safety of these plants so that you are ok. peace

I ordered chuchuhuasi, corydalis, kanna, and kava extract. I also received a sample of their Golden Poppy tea pills. I tried them this morning because my knees were hurting. I think it dulled the pain a bit, but I certainly wouldn't rely on it for pain relief. It is very relaxing though! I can see it being good for anxiety. It kind of feels like just enough wine to feel calm, but not enough to feel intoxicated. A heavy feeling that would be nice before bed. I kinda wish I didn't take it in the morning! lol

Edited to add: I love their packaging! It's so pretty it was a treat to open the package when it arrived. :)

Editing again to say that after writing this I took an epsom salt bath and took rhodiola, schizandra, and cordyceps. I usually get a happy feeling from the rhodiola and schizandra. Soon after it felt a little bit like the mood boost I get from kratom complete with the muscle relaxation. I thought the pain relief was minimal, but a few hours later my knees started hurting a lot worse, so there is definitely some pain relief in the Golden Poppy tea pills. :)

Bulk Supplements on Amazon. It might not be the best for everyone, but I seem to be sensitive to rhodiola, so it works perfectly for me. I also find using the smallest amount produces the greatest effects. If I take a bit too much I don't notice a thing.

madmaxnightrider - I have a Meridian Botanicals order on the way... :) I hope something I ordered works well on my kratom break days. :) I also got some schizandra from a different place. It's not as strong as rhodiola, but effects me similarly. I thought it potentiated kratom at first, but after further tests I'm not so sure. Some web searches showed that I wasn't the only one to think it did something. I haven't tried rhodiola and schizandra together yet. It's supposed to be a great combo. I'm taking a break from rhodiola so as not to develop a tolerance. It sucks that everything that helps me has a tolerance issue. :(

I can Vouch for Meridian Botanicals. They have Quality Products. I am going to make an Order with them soon for a few Herbs. I am very interested in Rhodiola Rosea.

I was very happy with my purchase, and it was cheap! I agree... it's awesome before a workout. Also a great tool if you need a mental edge. Everything is clearer with rhodiola... for me anyway.
