I started on kratom about a week and a half ago. I ordered a sample pack from In Sense Botanicals. The strains I got were White Hulu, Green Maeng Da and Red Bentuangie. This is my experience thus far. The first day I took green MD when I got home from work. Can't say that I noticed much from it. Second day I took the white hulu in the morning before work. About 30 minutes or so later I got a funny head feeling. Very similar to a slight alcohol buzz, but without the equilibrium problems. Not a bad feeling at all but I have yet to experience it again. I usually take the white hulu before work and it does feel like it gives me a slight energy boost. Been taking the red bentuangie at night and it seems to be helping with my sleep. I can't really say as to the green MD. I did take it yesterday before work just to change things up a bit, and my body felt really relaxed most of the day. It wasn't really a good relaxed as it kind of had an "exhausted" feeling. That might have also been because I only got about 3 hours of sleep the night before due to our power constantly going out because of high winds (gotta love midwest spring storms). I'll continue to experiment with it on normal days and see if it does anything else.

The biggest things I've noticed is with the white hulu and back pain. I have had back issues for two decades due to a trampoline injury and nothing has ever helped. Not drugs, or exercise, or steroid shots or surgery. If the pain isn't present, there is usually this constant, nagging tightness or soreness. Like yesterday, with the green MD, my back was pretty sore most of the day. I got home and took some white hulu and within 30 minutes the soreness was reduced by at least 75%. I have never experienced this with anything else I've done. I definitely won't be going and deadlifting 400lbs, but it seems to make the issue a lot more tolerable. It also seems to help with my mood ever so slightly.

I have not noticed an anxiolytic effect with any of the three, but I'm not done researching and trying different strains and doses. I've been trying to be on the safe side and only use a teaspoon or less for each dose as I don't have a milligram scale, but I plan on ordering one.

So that's what I've experienced so far. I'm so glad I found this forum and reputable vendors. And on that note, In Sense is awesome. I ordered by e-check, which I have never done before so I was a little hesitant. I was expecting there to be a 3-5 day waiting period, from what I had read online about using e-checks. To my amazement, I got a shipping confirmation within a few hours of placing my order. I will be ordering from them a lot more, for sure.
