Like any dried plant material Kratom should be protected from heat, light and moisture. I keep mine in glass or plastic jars in a cupboard.

If you are happy so far with what you are taking I think you should stick with it. When you feel more comfortable you might want to branch out and try other strains.

A green/white blend or even a green/Indo Maeng Da type blend might be suitable for you to start. You could start out by using no more than 25% of your usual dose with a white and see how it goes.(25% white and 75% green). I am making that recommendation based on my experience with those from my own cupboard...your supply might be a little different you just have to try. BUT I do find Kratom better than caffeine...much gentler and longer lasting and there is no crashing down when it wears off (again my own expereince with caffeine). So you might want to give that some thought too.

8 grams is a pretty hefty dose for a single shot of Kratom but if it works and has a long life then....hey what works works!.

I have also noticed some different tastes from different vendors and that has made a difference for me in who I buy from. I have noticed a chemical smell from some vendors and I avoid them now.

Try letting your powdered Kratom sit on top of a glass of water for about 10 minutes. You will find that it does dissolve and can go down more easily.

I do not do capsules very much but they are very handy for travelling or for nighttime administration ...who wants to get up and mix Kratom in the middle of the night?

I have to take 12, 500 mg capsules in order to get my usual 6 gram dose so...yeah that is a lot! You have to have a tamper tool in order to get 500mg of powder into a 00 capsule. I do not do 000caps because they are bigger and I would need another device for that size, so I stick with what I have.

bomalley, thanks for the info! I have also been looking at the reddit r/kratom section. There seems to be a very wide diversification on the amount people like. The quantity most people use 2-6g doesn't motivate me enough. It's been that way from the beginning. When I'm feeling I gotta get some work done or get outside walking, then I know it is working. I bet this stuff works wonders for people needing to shape up. It motivates to move and I don't feel nearly as hungry.
As far as capsules go, I'm gonna try putting some 20x extract in capsules. I mention that in the OPMS (another thread) reply.

Update: Now that I found out about agmatine (nutritional supplement) A lower kratom amount is working for me. Some say agmatine increases carbohydrate appetite, I didn't notice an overwhelming increase in appetite but it may be there.
I've evaluated agmatine for about 4 weeks and I think it does help potentiate kratom because I use so much less now. Previously 10-15g 3x a day; now 6g 3x a day. About half. I take one 500mg capsule at the same time as the kratom. Sometimes I take two capsules.
