Hi friends being new to this plant, I was wondering what is a good average dosage to take to help with pain and sleep, just before bed, and how long before bed to take, as I understand red vain is probabley the best to try, just like to hear what everyone is doing when using this beautiful plant to help with just that. I truly don’t want to do pills for helping that and I do have a problem with sleep cause of the chronic pain I have right now.
Thank you so much if anyone can help on this, I truely appreciate this site for all the input here.
Be well all

For me red Borneo and the fermented bentuangie have been very relaxing and geared towards evening wind down ...

Michele and Babel will have some other herbs to suggest that may help aside from kratom , cause for some even sedating kratom can be stimulating to some .

Greens and be energetic or relaxing , same for any color or type ... for me bentuangie mixed with a red seems to really get me relaxed. But the best advice I can offer is get a few varieties from a few vendors to see what works best for your chemistry.. and other botanical that are relaxing and will strengthen your nervous system ... those will be suggested ... soon!!
But skullcap, corydalis , akuamma are a few that I’ve heard great things about but haven’t personally had experience with ...aside from akuamma.. which helps with pain and is relaxing.

Happy you found this treasure of a zone and wish you the best in finding some great herbal ally’s to help you get some pain relief and sleep aid ... we are here to help ...

If you need some vendor ideas here’s a couple of great ones !

Insense: Goldleaf botanical
Benni Botanical
Lucky Herbals
Fused flora
Kratom Krates
Inland botanical

There’s more but these all are great options , Insense had a great selection of quality kratom and a plethora of other strong and lovely herbs to try ....

Take care

Brandon

Ps: as far as dosage for pain goes .. I get great relief from 2tsp... my reg dose amount... approx every 4 hrs (every 3 hrs of in bad pain). sometimes 1tsp is plenty .... the biggest I’ll take is 3 tsp of a red .... the thing you want to be mindful of is to not get in the practice of taking big doses .. taking the smallest amount to get relief is encouraged ( sometimes the situation just calls for a bigger dose though ) ....tolerance is a real thing and can be frustrating! Rotate your varieties and vendors so your receptors don’t get desensitized to one type. (L)

For me just about any Red at 2g to 2.5g knocks me out. Some Yellows and Golds also have that effect. :-bd

The fermented bentuangies do it at half that dose. :woohoo:

Hi Buckey!

I have a bad case of pain and insomnia too. To relieve 75% of the pain i use 3 to 7g depending on how bad it is. To get sedated i have to use 10 to 15g so i rarely do that because long term pain control (nerve pain) is my priority. That being said if im exhausted and feel sleepy and in moderate pain i can take 5g and fall asleep when my leg stop hurting. For sleep i tried cheap store bought kava supplement, seems promising but i need to get the root powder to really see if it would work, extracts arent as efficient. I will get skullcap and corydalis as soon as budget allows.

Don, whenever you mention your dosages and what it does to you i get very very jealous ;)

CanadianTW,

I see the doses many other need to take for relief and I realize that I am blessed to only need the amount that I do.=D>
I have only been taking kratom since March of 2019 so maybe I have not built up a tolerance yet and that is part of why I get away with it.

Although I know Nan also only needs low doses to find relief. :-bd
And I know Nan has also been at this low dose for years with no tolerance issues. :cheer:
