Good suggestion. This brings up a question I have been wondering about. What is the shelf life? I was thinking about buying a kilo or two to put away for a rainy day. How long is it good for?

I am also a relative newbie here.
I went looking for a pain med after having a headache 90% of every month for the last 2 years. My neurologist tried everything drug he new of and every new shot that came out.
Yesterday I had my regular 3 month appointment so he could see if the latest thing he prescribed (ajovy) was working. It did work somewhat for the first month by lowering the intensity of the headaches but not the number of days I had them. The 2nd and 3rd month it didn't work at all.
He told me 3 months ago that if the ajovy didn't work we would try botox shots in my skull.

When I saw him yesterday I told him that it was the first day in 2 solid months that I had not woke up with a headache. He said great, the ajovy is working. I said no, I started taking kratom 3 weeks ago and that is what is working.
He and his nurse were surprised. They had never heard of kratom before. I told them about it and then told them that it was illegal in about 7 states but legal in Georgia.
When I had said it was illegal in some states the first thing the nurse said was that it must be because big pharma is trying to get rid of it.
I guess she had dealt with big pharma's way of doing things for her to never have heard of kratom and then say that.

At the moment What works best for my headaches is the Gold Maeng Da I got from Insense. 2mg in the morning in hot water followed by 1mg at noon keeps the headaches to no more than 2 on a scale of 1 to 10. No prescription ever came close to that. Zomig has been the only thing, before kratom, that would kill a full blown level 9 migraine. Sometimes even 2 Zomig do not work for those.

I have also found that 2-3mg of the Red Borneo from Insense is great for my body pains but I can't take that during the day because it makes me to tired and foggy brained. It is great for a good nights sleep though and it was what I took the night before I woke up with no headache for the first time in 2 solid months.

I just ordered some Kx blend from Insense along with my 3rd, and last sampler for this year ;(

I hope you have as much success as I have had with kratom getting rid of your headaches. :)


That nurse is smart. Im sure that is what it is about. They dont want competition. I also don't beleive for one second the FDA has our best interests in mind. Money runs everything. I have been having headaches pretty much daily. Since i satarted using kratom 2 months ago I have had 0 headaches. I did wake up with a headache a couple times but I believe that was from taking too much. Now I know my limits.

Thanks for all help. I just placed orders from 2 vendors. I have samples of 12 different stains coming. My wife uses it for back pain and I have migraines and I like the mood and energy properties as well. Hopefully we can narrow down which ones work the best for us.

that is definitely good to know! of course yes first time taking my body said weeeeeeee! I don't take any strain consistently. but yes ill mix kratom and shilajit and see if it works. I tried turmeric and get a bit too much reflux reaction. gonna try it smaller dose. I do sip on turmeric, ginger, lemon+ honey "tea" at times but its mostly a winter thing. but yeah we all have different reactions.
