Happy Thanksgiving from the I Love Kratom Community!

We wanted to post all the Black Friday Deals that our approved vendors have made us aware of. We have heard that there are a few vendors that are having a tough time staying stocked up. We are confident one of these vendors would love to help you until your vendor is all stocked up again!

The bottle I purchased says 5 capsules per serving making it 2500 mg and only 10 servings in this bottle. I am a first time buyer and have never used Kratom before, is that dosage too much to start with. Will try it for pain with ankylosing spondylysis. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hello-

5 caps are 2.5 grams.
The average recommended starting dose is 2 grams - 2.5 grams.
This guide has dosage recommendations-
www.ilovekratom.com/forum/kratom-discuss...-oldies#.W9plmJNKiUn

Dosage depends on various factors. If you have a history or are currently taking RX pain meds you will find you need a higher starting dose.

You will find capsules more expensive, it seems like you ordered a sample size.

I have been gathering a list of vendors who sell caps most are on our approved list, if you decide to stay with caps and not powder I can give you the links. Just have to find my post.

Let me know if you need it.

Any questions you may have we will try to get them answered.

joeldr2X:

If you have never taken Kratom before start lower than 2500 mg ( or 2.5Gm).

It can be hard on the stomach for some people and the alkaloids can make you sick so best to start low and then increase.
Nan70 is right that we recommend 2 Gms as a starting dose. Most people can handle that to start with BUT I found it bit hard on my stomach to start. Now I take much higher doses to manage pain.

Do not be afraid to experiment with dose and frequency in order to manage pain. There is very little you can do wrong with Kratom except take too much and even then the nausea is unpleasant but short lived.

I would also recommend you start experimenting with red strains to manage pain. The reds have more of the pain relieving alkaloids so they work better for pain patients.

You will need to get a good supply so that you do not run out and can experiment with various strains.

The Maeng Da might be good, but the reds will probably work better. I have a couple of Maeng Da strains that I really like for daytime use for pain. I also use a Red Maeng Da, but using it more than once or twice in the day can be sedating.

Using plain powder is much more cost effective but it does take a while to get used to taking the stuff, and IF you absolutely cannot do it, then making your own capsules is the next best value.

You will need a scale if you are to measure out powder. It really is in your best interest to be accurate with your measurements because you can develop tolerance, and keep taking a little bit more. A 100mg of powder is about the size of your baby fingernail so weighing is the best way to get accurate dosing.

As you progress in your Kratom experiment you will likely have more questions, and we would be happy to answer them for you.

Vendor capsule list
I have either tried these vendors or they have been reviewed on this forum-
At least you can browse their prices. Powder is always more economical and you have more strain choices.
Everyone welcomed to add to these

Eventually you'll go broke buying capsules.

You can always toss it down. Me I find the taste repugnant so I have a Capsule M Quick machine with tamper Size 000 and make my own caps. The 000 tamped holds 82mg of Kratom but you don't have to fill the Caps to the top.

Only thing I dislike is that it's time consuming.

[/soundcloud][/soundcloud]kratering:

My 00 capsule machine, with tamper, creates caps that hold 500 mg. (Cap M Quik)

So I'm just wondering if the 82mg is correct for your 000 device?

If it only holds 82mg of Kratom you would have to take over 20 caps to get a 2 gram dose.

I have found another capsule device that makes 100 caps at a time that is much better than the Cap M Quik. In the same amount of time you get twice the number of caps.

www.amazon.ca/Filling-Dispensing-Organiz...sule+filling+machine

I only use capsules for travelling and at night - I keep them at the bedside in case I have to take something for pain.

I find if I sprinkle the Kratom powder on the top of a glass of water and leave it for 5-10 minutes it dissolves and is much easier to drink - but still it takes some getting used to!

" I have a couple of Maeng Da strains that I really like for daytime use for pain."
Can you tell me what they are and where from?

I am in Canada and use Canadian vendors.

I use an Indo Maeng Da and a Thai Maeng Da....often combined 50/50 for good effect.

I also use Red Maeng Da at full dose for pain.

I have no idea if these vendors ship to the USA

Canuck Kratom for the Indo and Galactic Botanicals for the Maeng Da Thai

I buy the Super Red Maeng Da from Canada Kratom Express.

All have their own websites.

All the advice has been good.
2-3 grams great starting amount and if kratom is good you’ll know it in a few hours.
I tried toss and wash and would never recommend.
I pour very little hot close to boiling water on kratom stir,let cool,slam it down like a shot of whiskey.Then chase it with orange,grapefruit juice or plain water.
