Hey guys!

So my green vietnam from CoB showed up (yay!) and I took 1.8g to try it out since I was tinkering with dosages the past few days with my Insense stuff just to see what works for me for when I need to take it. I was advised to begin at 2g due to my past with opiates but as I've said before, I am somehow still very senstive to any substances I take. 1.5-1.8 was working for me with Red Bali and Gold Maeng Da. (I will be using kratom to curb opiate cravings, lift my mood and manage my depression/anxiety on days that I need most.)

But with the green vietnam, 1.8g kinda made me feel more wired/overstimulated than I would like! O_O It made me... pretty anxious?
My question is, should I take MORE or LESS to achieve desired effects without feeling that tad overwhelmed? This might sound silly but I am asking as I have heard that lower doses are stimulating, and higher doses are more sedating/relaxing.

P.S - the gold maeng da is my favourite so far, I took 1.5g the past couple days and it was very helpful and motivating.

Thanks again to the best kratom forum :) <3

Tricky question. I am sensitive to Green and White strains and my dose is very low so I dare not up the green dose to see if the stimulation would be dialed down. My luck I would just get the wobbles.
Sometimes if I eat it will settle down the effect a bit.
You might want to add a bit of a red strain to the stimulating kratom.

The Gold sounds great I might be tempted to place an order.

Best

hey lumpy spaceprincess!

from what you explained I might dial the dose down. their products are high quality so maybe start with 1 gram? you can always take more but you cant take less. I agree with nan maybe add a smidge of red just to adjust the over stimulation. my guess is maybe 1g green and .2 of red ( or gold ). maybe that will work better for you. its such an individual thing. im so glad this works for you

Early on, someone advized to add an L-Theanine supplement to avoid the anxiety side effect of Kratom. I have done that. Not sure if that is always the answer. The realilty seems to be that there are other things in our bodies that impact how we react to Kratom. I am continuing to build up a supplement regimen to work with my Kratom use to get the best of all worlds. I also take Ashwaganda.
I started taking Ashwaganda a year ago with great results. Better sleep, less anxiety. My mistake was I thought I was doing so well I quit taking my Zoloft. Big mistake. I did a maor crash and burn of anxiety/panic. I did not realize quitting my anti-depressant would send me into severe withdrawal.
So I went back to square one and upped Zoloft. Now, with Kratom I am decreasing Zoloft. I have just added Ashwaganda back to the nightly pill pile with L-Theanine. I will see how it goes. So far, cut Zoloft dose in half and doing OK.

thank you for letting us know! just make sure after a couple of days change it up. different strain maybe gold/ red or gold/ green! inland is another good place ( ilk10 for 10 % off I believe ) that sells combo/ sample packs.. but its easy to spend your $ lol.. I stockpile a little when I can so we never run out. between my hubby and I we go through almost an ounce a day. but our tolerance has crept up and yes we are both taking a stem and vein break once we have a break!
