I actually feel "normal" with kratom. I've had the rotator cuff and back pain the last 2-3 years. Has stopped me being as active, not enjoyed rough housing with my son, etc... I don't feel much of the inflammation on it, it allows me to return to previously scheduled activities, which I like.

The second is my stress. I used to drink just about every night. Maybe to make me numb from work (as I have a stressful job), or maybe I just liked it, either way, I drank. I don't have to, nor do I feel much desire to now. I like that the kratom is cheaper than my alcohol lol.

I do notice vague side effects, but the goal is to not 'feel' any different, really. Just feeling a bit better! That's where the confusion lies. Many people always wait for a "wave of euphoria" when they should be so fortunate as to not feel quite as lousy as earlier that day. "When will I feel it?" is a common question that continues to be difficult to answer.

Reds do not even offer sedation for many of us! LOL

Perception of not feeling as lousy as earlier in the day can be explained in SO MANY WAYS!

Like you, T4TWO, I am quite fine to have it legal and accessible for humans of 18 years or more.

Yeah right, thanks Don. I didn't expect for this thread to go any further frankly but while I'm here, I recently found some discussion on Reddit regarding "strains" and it appears as though I am not alone in thinking that it's all pretty much the same stuff. Red, White and Green is where most users draw the line and that's fine with me. Just keep it coming is all I ask.:P

My best experiences with the leaf have been; headache relief, pain relief, increased clarity, and energy. :-bd

The experiences that I don't like are getting a headache, being jittery, foggy headed, and extremely tired. :(

I gave my sample of Yellow from PAB, which got rid of my headaches but made me spacey, to a friend.
His wife tried it in 1/4 teaspoon steps and she said all she got was nausea. He hasn't tried it yet. :-?

My wife has tried every one I have in my stock and either gets a headache, falls asleep, or both. :(

But as has been said we are all different. :-bd :cheer:

Good morning ,

Yep , lots of variables with Kratom ... in my experience.
The experiment goes on , more to try , more to learn ,

I don’t feel like your dismissing mine or others beliefs , just sharing my thoughts and personal experience on the subject , which I’m not surprised is different from others experiences (L)

Take care

Thanks people. I did not expect much agreement on my reductionist line of thought, only thinking "out loud" based on personal experience. So far all "strains" make me feel the same - which is to say - GREAT! I am open to sampling additional "strains" and blends but so far it seems akin to palmistry to me. This is not to dismiss anyone else's beliefs, hence the title of this thread.

That proves my Point just how Different Everybody Reacts to Kratom. Some will feel the more Subtle Effects of Different Strains & some will just either feel the Kratom or not. The Best thing to do is to try out a bunch of Vendors & Strains to Compare them & see which ones Work Best for you. Experimenting is the Best way to Fully Enjoy all of Kratom's Benefits. Kratom seems to shine best when Blending several different Strains.

I'm a perfectly happy camper - don't get me wrong. However I'm starting to suspect that there are only two kinds of Kratom: Good and Bad.


I notice only whether I get pain relief or not. A lot of the other effects that others talk about seem to elude me.

BUT reds definitely have more pain relieving and sedating qualities than whites ... and greens are hit and miss for me.
