I tried Kratom for the first time yesterday.

600 mg. capsule white maeng da.

It knocked me out. I slept for hours. What in the world?

What should I change?

I have a very mentally taxing job and suffer from chronic pain (managed with opiates, unfortunately), I was hoping to help with both and get off meds eventually.

I understand from reading a few posts on here capsules are not preferred. Links to reputable shops to purchase powder would be much appreciated :)

Hey there thebanker :-h

Glad you found us… So you took a capsule of white maeng da and it out you to sleep? Usually whites are stimulating especially at low doses .... but there’s some folks who have opposite reactions ... you’re also on opiates? Usually when folks take kratom and have opiates in their system requires a slightly higher dose… Not all the time but generally speaking, I’m actually amazed that you were sedated off of a Single capsule of a stimulating variety!!

And really it depends on what you’re looking for… If you’re wanting to get off of opiates, Kratom can be a really awesome tool, help you have limited with drawls if any at all, and switching from opiates to Kratom it’s a great idea in my personal opinion… The less Opiates you take ,the More benefits You’ll get out of taking kratom...

It’s not that we are opposed to capsules, at least I’m not personally opposed to it and most folks love the convenience of taking them without having to mix powders… Usually capsules dissolve unevenly so they don’t hit your system all at once and for folks in pain they want faster results, or than that capsules are fine. I’ll send you a link, of all the vetted vendors from this community forum, and I’ll give a small list of vendors that I’ve been personally very happy with recently…
Generally speaking, whites give you energy, reds give you good pain relief energy at the beginning and some sedation/relaxation… And greens are kind of a middle ground… Energy pain relief… I love greens! But a good white and red are worth it’s weight with certain batches, We usually suggest getting a sample pack of a few different colors from at least a couple vendors to see what works best for you before investing into a bigger purchase,

Please ask any questions, also going into the index and looking up “find a vendor rate a vendor “for reviews on peoples personal experience with a specific vendor and strains tried, We’re different so what works one way for one person might not work the same way when you try it .. But more times now there seems to be a common thread and on experience with a specific strain.

I take Kratom For chronic pain, depression and anxiety which I get great relief from using it… Finding the smallest amount that gives you the relief you need and taking it as few times as possible will keep your tolerance down and affects strong...Stay hydrated, eat a healthy diet, try to exercise if you can when you can… And rotate between a few vendors and a handful of different strains which will keep you from building a tolerance to one particular type! Definitely explore this forum in past the roads so you can get an idea of what folks have had good success with in tips on how to go about it…

Vendors I’ve enjoyed Recently :
Benni Botanicals’s
Fused Flora
Lucky Herbal’s
Soflo
InSense/GoldLeaf

Lots a good kratom out there, and plenty that are subpar as well, good luck and please let us know how it goes and what you choose to try !!!

Take care

Way to totally welcome the new member, yeah SomethingSacred Brandon!
Welcome to the best kratom forum, ever, thebanker!

Try taking half as many capsules next time. Small dose = moodlift, large dose = sedation

The above applies variably in the different strains..

Yes, SHE (me) :silly: only took one capsule. One 600 mg. capsule.

Last night I took three capsules. Just for funsies. Didn't feel a thing but I did go to bed about 1 1/2ish hours later and slept HARD (normally I have insomnia). Perhaps I have a bad brand?

Going to buy some powder tonight from your list of vendors and try that.

Thanks to everyone for responding :)

Thanks for the update, thebanker! Definitely sounds like a product not limited to kratom as the ingredients. I wonder what would put someone to sleep after one capsule...

Welcome the banker (I was going to use your initials, because I'm lazy, and then said no that isn't good. :ohmy: )

A white that puts you to sleep?
Most whites make me very hyper and jittery. Maybe your an opposite.
You'll have to try a red to see if it gives you energy. (reds knock me out) B-)

Whites often do that to me. Either increased energy or a nap is needed. It’s not handy to have, so I’m careful about when I try a white strain!
