Hello Kratom Lovers! I have been using Kratom for a year and a half for Fibro pain. It has been the only thing that has helped me and I am very grateful I found this medicinal plant.
I am wondering how long does one have to go completely off of it to "start over" I have recently been using large amounts and I feel like I need to quit for awhile. But I am afraid to because my pain levels have been through the roof.
Any advice?
Chickie

Hey chickie ,

Yeah.., kratom is fabulous for giving pain relief , absolutely a miraculous herb ! (L)

I’ve personally have only had two 2 day breaks goin on 3 years of daily kratom utilization...

I’ve heard/ read from members here that between 1-4 weeks ... 1 being very helpful , 3-4 being pretty much a complete reset ....

Michele can give better details ... she just started up after 4 week break =D>

Good to see you around these parts !! Please let us know how long and how effective your break is ... if/ when you take it !

Might want to get some hirsuta , javanica and akuamma to help during the break .... Michele and Babel can offer other herbs to use as well, like skullcap , incarvillea sinensis.. corydalis and such :)
Take care

You might only need a taper. No one should need to worry about dealing with pain. Pain management is a process. You can slowly add or replace kratom with other pain reducing botancials. Some botanicals take a few days to get full effects. Kratom is one of the few that works first try. For Fibro where you would want to calm the nerves I would guess these would be the top 3 Corydalis, Incarvillea, Akuamma.
You should get more feedback soon just wanted to direct you to few conversations about the other herbs.

Listen to these friends, they have alot of experience and know what they are talking about.

I was talking to a friend in Indonesia and he said "If one needs to do a complete restart, 2 weeks gives the body enough time to reset"
Our minds may say "more is better" nut this is not true with Kratom.

Stem and vein while on this break is a needed remedy for many. Its a different set of alkaloids, that will help while on break.

After 2 weeks its like the first time all over again.....Joy and Bliss (L) (L)

Thanks for asking

I've never used stem and vein. Is that available on most sites to purchase?

hey chickee!

yes great advices. I personally did go through a full reset and it was easier than I expected. BUT I was working part time at best if any so it was a planned break.

stem and vein did wonders. tea time botanicals, kratom eye, oties and soflo all have amazing types. tea time you pick the color, oties and kratom eye its a blend. oties you can even get it in a split key. after the ILK discount its super reasonable for great potent product. soflo its a energetic green.

no one can truly tell you what you 'need' I held off as much as I could. my doses were getting close to 10g at times. the average ive been told is 2-3 weeks. akuammma, incarvellia, white willow bark, and corydalis or skullcap for PM are my pain management drugs of choice. all you can get at insense/ gold leaf for a steal after 15% off. ilkforme15% is the code.

good luck keep us updated.

Currently Otie's and Fused Flora have the best prices that I'm aware of for stem and vein, but of those two I've only used Otie's. Tea Time and Soflo have what look like the "purest" selection and grind of stem and vein, though Otie's is good. I have both of theirs, and Soflo's S&V looks identical to Tea Time's White S&V. Tea Time offers Red, White, and Green, S&V.

Thanks for your help!
What is the difference between regular and stem and vein?
Is it less potent?
