So I guess this more highlights my problem. I know its active because this is where it grows naturally and it works well for me. But then the problem may be where the amount per leaf varies no matter the weight.

But if I try to calculate dry leaf doses into my fresh leaf doses, I get stuff that's way too strong usually. That or its just difficult to predict.

Laurie makes a great point. Not all Kratom Trees have Alkaloids. I've heard from Suppliers that you have to find the ones that have the Alkaloids & then look for the ones that have the highest yield of Alkaloids which is difficult.

Legality is grey, but its where they grow naturally.

I just only have access to buying leaves. I think I'll try to dry them myself to see how it compares to using the fresh leaves.

Chewing wasn't very enjoyable and tea was...

A friend of mine has a tree and chews one leaf every so often. He ALSO uses dried leaf doses because his disease is very debilitating and going outside to the tree can take a toll.

Where are you located, geographically? It makes a difference with regard to fresh leaves. Plus, there are a lot of kratom trees with zero alkaloids we enjoy. Then chewing a leaf is a waste of time.

Not far from there. I guess for you guys it's great, but for me I don't have any choices of strains, so that's one drawback. The other is that the leaves vary in size and water weight, so I'm not really sure how to weigh half of what other people use.

If you have access to fresh leaves then you have a gold mine. You would have to fly to Indonesia to have access to Fresh Kratom Leaves or have a growing plant yourself. I would think that fresh leaves would be more potent than dried leaves. So I wouldn't take but about half as much to be sure if you have fresh leaves.

Does anyone know of any resources for dosing or using fresh leaves vs dry leaves?

Everything is dried leaves or powder, but what if my access is to fresh leaves?
