I would take every dose with half Stem & Vein & half Plain Leaf for a day & see how that does for you. If it's not too much of a change then do it for a week & then start back with your normal plain leaf dosage & you should be feeling the effects more after a week of taking half doses with Stem & Vein. It's just a Suggestion. It's not a you have to do it thing. It's up to you. It's whatever you feel best doing for your body because it's your body & your in Control of it.:)
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.

Spinster67,
Please come back to this thread when you’ve had some time to try this strategy and let us know your thoughts on this topic and if we were helpful or not. There are other ways to try, but I find this idea the most helpful one. Especially if you find it helpful.

It is very difficult to take breaks if you are in pain all the time.


One thing is for certain, for pain relief, if you keep increasing your Kratom dose you will develop tolerance and then you will need more and more to get the same results.

The same is true for opiates of course because they all end up at the same place in the body - opiate receptors.

Crazy as it sounds, whenever I take more / a higher dose, it’s less helpful and benefits are limited to pain relief only (no clarity that I love).


no that does not sound crazy...

I have a theory that the alkaloids that contribute to mood stabilization are the weaker ones, and the pain relieving alkaloids are the stronger ones.

So when you take higher doses you get better pain relief, but the weaker alkaloids are over-powered. With lesser doses the mood stabilizing alkaloids can shine through because there are not as many of the pain relieving alkaloids to overpower them.

This is just my theory but it seems to make sense.

We should be hearing from spinster67 soon as the week is almost up!
