Hello everyone. i"m Ktea. I'm fairly new to kratom. It seems that I should have known better than to think everyone selling kratom was straight up. I'm here to learn to grow my knowledge and support this special leaf. I'm not even sure if I have experienced good quality kratom yet. who to trust. Or what my part in this space is going to be, other then I need to know more about it. Who I can trust and how I can help others find the right information on this leaf.hopefully so they can find the same relief that I have found.:-bd thanks, again and glad I found a place outside of social media to learn and grow in this space

Welcome to the best kratom forum ever, Ktea.

Your interest and priorities match those in this particular forum.

Definitely use the website “search” option with various keywords of interest to you. Many of the regulars will greet you and provide links for your perusal as well (some may be slow to arrive because they are ABLE to participate in holiday activities more, THANKS TO THE LEAF and self care).

Let us know what you have tried it for, how it helped (or not) and what you are seeking from this magical tool (leaf) and that will help us guide you.

Happy almost Holiday(s)!
Laurie

I"m a person that suffers from depression, social anxiety, and high blood pressure can become manic if I don't take a benzodiazepine. I also suffer from insomnia. I self-medicated for a long time with heroin and meth.I've been clean off of them for six yrs but have had to take the benzo to help with the above symptoms. which I hate but its the only way up to now that has worked. Then I started to take CBD oils to try to see if it would help. Then I saw a sign outside a gas station that said organic kratom. I tried it because I was working a lot and was trying to find an alternative to Monsters and other energy drinks. it raised my heart rate and I was sweating profusely. I did some U tubing as most people do and the watched the show on Netflix. I met a guy on facebook and started searching for a good source from there on out. I've only have received this kratom from this guy, which I think is good. it was easy threw pay pal person to person and affordable. I've tried green hulu.which is ok but kinda racy the red bereno was ok the red horn is good night time for me. I have found that this red bing bang had a great euphoria and well being without the racy feeling. I got injured at work and now using the meds for pain as well. I don't want to go real fast but want to feel focused and alert during the day. relaxed at night and be able to sleep. I know this stuff is cheap and effective but understand without proper testing could be putting myself in danger. I know I'm all over the place but feel over time I can get the right source. learn the correct way to use it. most importantly have a sense of well being . whole again till I figure this out, then pass on this valuable information in the correct and most helpful way to those who think that big pharma is the only alternative to their issues. I am openminded and ready to take suggestions. I don't have a lot of money and don't want to waste what I have. I just ordered from Carolina kratom. Which I found on facebook. after reading through some articles have found out that these are the worst places to talk about this stuff. So I'm glad that I know how to do my research and hope I've found the right place. sound like I have found the best place. Thanks Ktea

Hello welcome to the forum-
There is a lot of information on this forum.
Your main concern seems to be first with good sourcing, head shop Kratom typically is not the best quality.
If you are familiar with how to dose and how to ingest kratom- powder vs. capsules I will start you out on vendors.
This forum has an approved list they have to meet certain guidelines testing for contaminants and metals is one of them.
www.ilovekratom.com/kratom-vendors


www.ilovekratom.com/forum/kratom-vendors
Here is where there are recent reviews
www.ilovekratom.com/forum/rate-a-vendor

This section is where you can ask for opinions and we could guide on quality, customer service, payment methods, budget.

Kratom is subjective and different for each individual needs I will find the link about the strains and common uses in a minute.


My recent buys were from-
Approved vendors
In Sense/Goldleaf Botanicals
Pa Botanicals
Re-leaf llc (reopening very soon)
Canopy

Off the list but well reviewed-
Herbal RVA, Socal herbal remedies- budget friendly accepting paypal
Inland Botanicals- forum favorite

Not all vendors carry capsules. Its better for your budget to buy powder but if you need to start with capsules I can dig up that vendor list. let me know.

Sometimes you need to type speciosa in the search bar to find the kratom list.

Some will offer samples you can contact and ask. Usually Goldleaf/ In Sense will send one time free samples about 10 grams each.


Hi Laurie :-h thanks to the leaf I am preparing to do some major cooking. I'm prepping the kitchen these last few days.

Hi Ktea,
You have found a very educated and caring forum here. As long as you're taken the benzos as prescribed and not abusing them it's fine. But i would still do research on what you can take in place of benzos. There is stuff out there i just dont know anything off hand. And remember if you decide to change from benzos to something else make sure you discuss it with your doctor first. Never just stop taking them. The withdrawals from benzos are worst then opiates and can kill you. I also suffer from the 4 reasons you take benzos so I understand how difficult it is for you and how it impacts daily life.

Like member's mentioned use the search feature or just read through the different forums. Learn as much as possible about kratom. The approved vendors listed here are great. That is the 1st thing with kratom is you want to make sure you're getting actual pure kratom not something from a head-shop, gas station, or a stranger. On this forum if there is an issue going on with an approved vendor members will post about it.

Any questions just ask on here. The members are great and very supportive. Plus they actually care about you and want to make sure that you use kratom properly.
Guess that is one of the positive effects of kratom..,you're actually happy from a simple natural product.
only been using kratom for a short time but it is a life changing experience for the better.
