Try each strain separately...you need to get a good idea of what each strain does for you FIRST, before blending.

you did not mention what strains you took..

Reds are generally more sedating, especially at higher doses.

Whites are more energizing and greens are sort of in between.

That is a generalization because there are variations within that (I have a White Horn that I really like which is sedating after about 2 hours), but you might be able to better gauge your response if you start with a pure strain instead of blends.

Hey Michael, welcome aboard!!

Smaller doses are stimulating, more energy , larger-doses are more pain relief and can be sedating.... I utilize kratom for pain so I take higher doses 6-9gms ... hope you find what your looking for

Hi michael2015,

I agree with you. Absolutely a waste of time to watch someone on YouTube share how it works FOR THEM.
Some of the reviews here are done more repetitiously so the odds of having similar effects are better... but there is also every likelihood you’ll get different results. I’m what is called an “opposite” and reds help energize me and whites put me to sleep! Most of the time - some whites over energize me into a panic attack.

Your dose is WAY TOO HIGH. Unless you have an immediate opiate or heroin history, you should be at 2 grams or LESS.

Hope that works better. I’d like to hear how that works before you disappear into the sunset please
Laurie

hi all
today I took 3 teaspoons of my "mixed house kratom sample bag", and by the assumption that there is 2g of kratom per teaspoon, I've taken 6g. my mood has been relaxed-almost too relaxed-like I've had a few alcoholic drinks or popped a opiate like pill. nice felling for a Saturday afternoon but not what I'm looking for on a daily bassist. I would prefer to be energised. Am I taking too much?
I am going to order 3 different strains from the only supplier that ships to me. then mess around with dose and the different strains. so far a positive experience and I can see this is going to take time to get the desired feeling. don't think there is any point listening to other people and there experience with dose etc as I think its a very individual. although listening to other is helpful and positive hope u all have a good weekend.
