I can see your point. Yesterday I did 4 grams of maeng da and green kali and had success.

Thanks again.

Sometimes you have to try a bunch of different Vendors before you find the Right One that Hits The Spot. Kratom can vary from Vendor to Vendor & even from Batch to Batch so don't give up. Give yourself some time to try at least half a dozen Vendors. Sometimes all it takes is just finding the magic dose that works for you. Just take some time & experiment. Kratom really shines when you mix several different Strains together. That's when each Strain that is mixed together will fill in the blank that the other Strain is Missing if you get my drift. Each Strain has a Different Alkaloid Profile so in essence each Strain has it's own Unique effects.

When I first started taking kratom I didn't always have pleasant experiences but I always found relief from my wds that I was using it for. I was not sure I was gonna like it honestly, but after playing with my dose and strains I liked I started really having much better experiences and have decided I really like kratom :-bd

I started a thread on here of my favorite vendors and strains so far if u would like to know more of my fav. Strains. It is under new to kratom I think.

Authentic kratom was the vendor who's strains didn't sit well with me. Green bali was one of them and Red Maeng Da. I ordered it when I first tried kratom and I was trying to figure out my dose. The experiences with those strains were enough I didn't take very much of it before I decided i didn't like their kratom. But where I was new and didn't know Which doses or what feelings to expect I could have been taking to much. I may try them again later on. The experience could have been me not being very knowledgeable.

Pharmacy drop outs green bali gave me very unpleasant effects as well but I did figure out I was taking too much and lowered my dose and found I really enjoyed it.

If u were asking which vendors I like my favorites are herbal salvation, socal, C.O.B and pharmacy drop out so far . Socal is the cheapest priced for the quality, the others are higher but a little better quality I think. But I like all 4 :-bd

Hey Levonne,

If you wouldn't mind sharing your Vendor it would be great....if not, it's ok...

I really appreciate any info as I'm building a base of knowledge that will help me find the right strain or strains and dosaage....I guess everyone goes through the same initiation when they start.

Thanks again.

I really appreciate your response.

In fairness to Buy-Kratom.US, they were very professional when I let them know my problem and they gave me a full refund.....I had only used maybe 3 grams per day for 5 days, but just couldn't go on with it....at one time the Yellow Viet Nam was horrible and in two days it was fine. Their White Maeng Da and White Borneo were good at first and then made me ill, so I don't know if I should have not taken it everyday, but I need help with depression and anxiety at times, and wanted to try to get a feel for if the kratom would help my situation. I thought a slow introduction of a new substance like kratom to my body would work, but only time will tell what didn't work about it. Perhaps I will order from them again and try another grouping of strains.

You're right, one just has to find one's way to see what works and not give up. As a classical singer, I was imagining me taking kratom and then feeling edgy and uncomfortable in front of an audience, and the two just didn't seem to be possible. Perhaps I should have tried every other day, or upped the dosage to see how that would affect me but I just paniced I guess.

I am on day two of a smaller purchase from CarpoBotanicals. Joshua, the owner, seems honest in his assessment of his Vendor and made me feel comfortable, as they apparently have good quality control. If anyone has experience with him I would appreciate any info.

I tried the Green Kali yesterday at 2 grams and felt fine for 45 minutes and then felt the beginning of a headache...head did not hurt but it was like I had a heightened physical awareness of my brain....hard to describe; I had a similar feeling in my head when I tried SAMe, the supplement for depression...it is highly regarded in Europe for helping with depression. I had the same sensation so am wondering if there is something in common with SAMe and kratom.....I added 2 grams of Maeng Da at that point and had a leveled out feeling that was good.

Don't know if this is proper here, but if you have a Vendor you use that you trust, would you mind sharing it?

Thanks again for your help.

Hey Oldman glad to have you on the Forum. Buy-Kratom.US is a very good Vendor. They have awesome prices with quality. You made a good choice to buy from them. Just keep trying different Strains until you find the ones that work best for you. If a strain gives you any negative side effects at 4 grams then I would chuck it like msolis said. Don't give up Oldman. There are plenty of different Strains, Vendors & Combo's out there. You will find what works best for you. Good Luck!

I went for what I thought was value and purchased a kilo from Buy-Kratom.US and had maeng da, yellow viet nam, white borneo and I forget the other. From what you have said about this being the toughest part, that is, trying out and experimenting to see what works for me, this actually gives me some hope to continue.
Yesterday, after the headache came on I was ready to chuck the whole thing and try something else, but actually I woke up this morning with a calm feeling as if the kratom yesterday had carried over with some positive effects.
So, I will continue experimenting with 4 gms and see what develops. It could even be that the first batch was not bad, but that I didn't manage it wisely.....
I very much appreciate your help.

>:D

Nice to meet you Oldman :-h

I have had that problem before as well and like msolis said, i just throw them out :( But i do not know the cause, But i do order small orders of each strain first then the ones i like i buy larger amounts so if i have to toss one it is not very costly, and i will always try each one at least twice. I also have better experiences with Kratom if i split the dose into two doses. Like for a 4g. dose, I will take 2g. then thirty min later i take the other 2g. and i find the effects to come on a little slower and less intense but they last longer for me this way.
