Welcome to the best kratom forum ever, Freck!

We are all here for similar reasons and welcome open discussion on all things kratom.

Please keep unapproved vendor preferences limited to the VENDOR REVIEWS section named FIND A VENDOR / RATE A VENDOR.

Hope you are finding the leaf helpful for your needs so far. It’s quite a versatile plant and I find it comes in handy for a variety of things over time.
Laurie

Welcome!! You found the Mecca of Kratom forums!! Kratom is for many of us the best herbal tool to help with numerous ailments , and this community is a vast and awesome resource to share and learn from all of our experiences! The best tip/ advice I can give is to keep your dose to the lowest amount to get relief and to alternate strains and vendors, this helps with tolerance issues and keeping the effects strong. We have many approved vendors here that are GMP compliant and amazing..

Look forward to seeing more posts of yours , you will get more welcomes soon enough (L) this is a great place !!
Glad you found it (L) (c) (L)

So glad you took the time to post! Your choice of strain today is a perfect example of how we all differ in what helps and what it helps FOR.

I also enjoyed the whites during my first year. No idea why I was unable to enjoy it for ages and now I’m reintroducing it and having some “fun” feeling better from some white strains after YEARS of a break.

Welcome to ILK michele373.:-h Glad to have you here. I can recommend Incarvillea Sinensis 20:1 Extract as a Great Pain Reliever. Akuamma Seed is also pretty good. Incarvillea Sinensis works best for me though. Even better than Kratom for me.

For Extending the Duration of Kratom I can Recommend White Grapefruit Juice, Cat's Claw & Turmeric Extract with Black Pepper. You can also take half of your Dose when the Effects of Kratom seem to be starting to wear off. That can seem to boost your First Dosage Effects. If that doesn't work then take your the rest of your full dosage.
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.

thank you laurie I appreciate the welcomeness! no place else have I found anything like this forum! wish I found it before I ordered anything! im still stumbling around, im not social network friendly and I appreciate your kind words. ive read its good to mix things up often. I think im more drawn to the whites now because its more of a social long lasting pain reliever, at least for now. not sure yet what kinds of reds to try that wont make me sleepy, grumpy or irritable at work. nothing too strong yet either or ill take a smaller dose. any strain suggestions?

I thank you so much! I appreciate that. ive found kratom lasts longer when I eat within an hour of taking my first initial day dose ( empty stomach of course ) and if I have a long work day or just ouchie ill do the half dose in capsules. but its great to know theres other options too. how is it fair that kratom might be illegal in more states than rec weed is legal? MIND BLOWN. bite it big pharma!
