Thanks SomethingSacred Brandon! I do find it worthwhile to set a good example for you younguns’!

I later tried 1 flat teaspoon of regular green vein Mitragyna Speciosa and got hungry right away, so I ate some granola and have no idea if that teaspoon was of any benefit.

I have this one day of dog sitting where little else needs doing (unlike most everyone else), so I’m gonna continue with Hirsuta for the remainder of today. Tomorrow I move out and hope I don’t “need” regular kratom, but I’m very glad to have it as a tool!

There's only a Few Vendors that actually carry Hirsuta & Javanica. I would think there would be more because of Kratom being Banned in different States. It's the Best Alternative in my Opinion. It's effects are close to Speciosa but just milder.
If anybody has any Questions about Kratom please private message me or make a Post & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can usually within 24 hours if not sooner. I'm usually on really late at night Between Midnight & 5am.

My Hirsuta replenishment is being delivered supposedly tomorrow (maybe Monday).

It was effective in slightly lowering my kratom tolerance and kept me fairly comfortable for Hirsuta Only Thursday.

But on Saturday I had discomfort from lack of regular kratom alkaloids and caved in but it is more helpful - noticeable improvement of benefits from that one plus day off.

More Hirsuta Only days are in my future. I’m very glad the AKA ( www.americankratom.org ) is working SO HARD to assure my access to ALL of these amazing botanical herbs.

Thanks so much, Madmax! Your posts are really wonderful and your contributions to this forum are really SPECIAL and APPRECIATED!

You set a good example for us Olduns also. :lol:

How much of the Hirsuta do you have to take. I read that it was quite a bit compared to the regular leaf?

I found out the hard way - and then I asked around - for me, only 1 TEAspoon and that’s allowing room to add 1/2-1 TEAspoon of regular kratom (if needed). I keep it at 1 TEAspoon near day’s end because it’s definitely a day strain IN MY METABOLISM.

I’m finding it much more pleasant than quitting or even using stem n vein. But a TEAspoon of stem n vein works well with it also.

It’s very easy to get TOO MUCH. I like the energy! Got the floors washed at 0400 before an AA meeting at 0700 today!

Unfortunately it is messing up my plans for a nap this afternoon. I’ve had the last bit for today (3PM my time).

I expect I’ll have one more teaspoon of regular red vein powder later today, as I have more activities scheduled this evening or I would just quit everything today.

I enjoyed getting up early to clean the house from being gone almost 2 weeks dog sitting, I need more rest normally as part of my self acceptance/self care.

Hope that helps!
Laurie

I know! I felt good after just waking up to pee. As usual, if I’m feeling better, I clean! Get while the getting is good! I had the robot vacuum doing the terrace after I got the house back in order.

I must admit, there has been unexpected news with my love life, so it’s hard to sit still. But I’m in enough pain to use some Top Extracts CBD full spectrum followed by their melatonin/valerian supplement. Need rest and I’ll fill y’all in more when I know more.

These supps are a lifesaver today cause I never got a nap!
