Good morning everyone. I hope all are well and survived Mothers Day?? I have a need for some advice. I started Kratom yesterday. Red Malay. I noticed the sedating properties after an hour. The first hour was semi energetic. But sedating after that. I awoke this morning in pain, 4 a.m., and took a teaspoon and a half of the Red Malay. I now feel like I'm over sedated. My pain is managed but some spring in my, this is an oxymoron, step would be nice! I have Green Malay and other various "Greens". Any suggestions. It's such a beautiful day here and my roses are smiling. I'd like to enjoy them without the feeling of being on Haldol or Lithium. I'm open to suggestions.

A shout out to Rob at Insense. You sir are a kind gentleman!

Good morning Robbie

Perhaps mixing half red Malay with half green Malay .... greens are more energetic and might offset the sedation from an all red dose

Or you can try 50-50 of red maeng da mixed with another red of choice, red md tends to me more energetic but still has good pain relieving effects

Hey! Good morning! I need to adjust something. I can see taking the red malay a couple of hours before bedtime. But after waking up in pain isn't going to work well for me. Thank you for the heads up!

Red vein does not effect me that way. As an example of how unique each of us is.

We had to convince you to TRY IT first. Fine tuning is part of the journey..,

Most of us use partial red with a green, yellow or white in the morning.

But!

Also, DOSE SIZE makes a sedating strain of any color. If your dose size is too large, you’ll find a nap is needed regardless of flavor.

How much are you using again?

(It’s a complicated journey since your use for pain management will ALSO require adjusting when the pain medication is further in the rear view mirror).

Now you know the POTENTIAL for pain management. That’s great! I recall you weren’t up to looking at the roses three days ago. So some patience with the process of learning is essential to enjoying life on the way...

Waking up in pain is not cool at all, I’m sorry Robbie

While I still wake up in pain, it has lessened to a degree since my kratom regimen started

I’ve always have best luck with green strains , stronger pain relief for my body than any red and 99% of whites I’ve tried. Green and red blends I really like as well. Keep trying different strains and colors and your chances of finding a big helper strain/ color will be found.

Green Malay, maenga da and Bali have been great help to me, just tried green Sumatra and green Aceh, I’m very impressed with these strains from a vendor I will be reviewing soon. Pm me if you’d like to know which vendor I’m writting about ...

Wishing you the best Robbie ,

I recommend partial green in there unless your pain is not yet under control.

You WILL figure it out in no time!

I just did half a teaspoon of Red Maeng Da and Red Malay. About 40 minutes ago I reckon. I REALLY like that Red Maeng Da! I'm going to have to get more of that rascal. It's filling the bill pretty well. I'll try that when I wake up in pain. Keep the dose low. I don't know how much a teaspoon is but I sure don't feel any anxiety or "speedy" shaky feelings.

Thank you for the help. This stuff should not be censored, condemned or altered in any way shape or form. It's perfect in it's natural state. It's time for me to become a serious activist. Put this brain of mine to service for others. I've been reading the AKA site. I think they're doing pretty good work there. Interesting how the FDA refuse to even meet with peaceful activists. A democratically held Republic and an agency is denying access to the very people they are responsible to??? That is not responsive government. 272 days??? That is arrogance!

I'm done,

robie,

im glad you are navigating well. its a constant struggle/ learning curve no matter what you do with most people. keep on keeping on. there are many pain relieving supplements that can help with pain too. its also good to rotate mixes and strains, and companies! but yes of course order what and from whom works for you.
i found a company when I was super duper new to k and they fight with eff dee ayae even have a recording of a phone call on their site. so I rotate them in cause I respect that so much. same with kratom eye ( approved:-bd ) sounds like you will be a leaf liberator like the rest of us! =D>

Thank you Michele! I really like the Red Maeng Da. That hit the spot for some reason. I know what to hit for that 4 in the morning excruciating pain!!! I enjoyed it's energy. I'm keeping my doses low and am so far comfortable with that. I would like to be somewhat animated during the day! You all are wonderful, kind and helpful people. Gentle folks of the highest order. I meant what I said yesterday. If I may ever return the favor you know where to get ahold of me!!

Be blessed Michele and thank you. Has anyone heard how Nan is doing? She said she was starting to feel poorly. I hope she's not getting what Laurie and I had. It's nasty.

Be blessed!
