    Kratom - What is it Good For?

    So I'm asking this across a few forums, apologies if you read it already or if I am somehow breaking the rules (seem to upset moderators an awful lot - only trying to spread the love )
    If you use Kratom is it just for recreation or is it for medicinal use? And does it work for you? Have you tried it and thought it was lousy? Just trying to get a picture of what people think.

    Kratom can be used medically, although in my experience most people have used it recreationally.

    In low doses stimulating effect and in high doses sedative effect (although I've heard some people say that vice-versa.

    To put it bluntly, kratom is like a weaker vicodin. It's not typically smoked with good results, and eating it is rather unpleasant. The best would be just to make kratom tea. For me it gave mild effects, and although they were pleasant, definitely not one of those life-changers.

    I agree with darkwolfunseen. Kratom has many uses, but if one chooses not to use it, that is their choice. Many people find it helps them with things like fibromyalgia, others simply want to study its chemical properties.

    Re: Kratom - What is it Good For?

    There is a lot of unclear information about the use of kratom, just wanted to make some things clear around this underrated plant.

    Offcourse like everything else kratom can be addictive, but its not really that addictive as people want u to believe, making comparations with opiates. Also there is some confusion about the intake, most people make a disgusting tea out of it, but this is a real waist, tosh and wash really is the way to go,but make shure to blend the kratom a few minutes to powder.

    The kratom commercial sales in holland here are a joke, u will pay around 10-15 euros for aprox 10/15 grams. So if u make a tea from half of that, wich mostly is average advised dose(around 5 grams) U will feel something but not the full spectrum. I can understand that because of this people will think kratom is a waiste, boring, expensive, unatractive.

    But when ordering from wholesales, the prices dropes with a 1000%.
    Instead of 10 euro it becomes only 1,-
    This is where kratom gets interesting....

    I have had amazing (spiritual) experiences, really feelling similair like mdma(especially combining with cannabis) But without the serotonine fuck ups. Aftherwards i can sleep really long, wich is a great gift for me(light sleeper), afther sleep i can really feel being a bit reborn similair like shrooms.Mostly i will use between 15 and 20 grams, dosing 5 grams at a time with delays of around half an hour.

    It's also a perfect replacement for asperine,or pain relievers, have used it succesfully against back pain, and a collapsed lung.

    this plant is way too beautifull to be demonized, and if u have not, i encourage everyone to discover the full spectrum

    Personally, I had a very good history with kratom. It is certainly very good painkiller, but
    I would normally try it in small doses when I want to work hard on something, it really helped me concentrate. If the dose is increased, sedation comes...

    if u have powdered leaves, like me, u can better buy some empty capsules.. I can't stand the taste of the tea anymore, way to bitter . first time i used kratom, i just put a spoon full of it in my mouth, nowadays, i can't even stand the smell of this plant

    Re: Kratom - What is it Good For?

    I think I should add here that tea is considered an inefficient way of taking kratom. I usually put 2-3g in a cup, mix it well with some fruit juice (not too much) and then quickly swallow and wash away the taste with some water. For me that works quite well, and if I read here that in tea you need 15g, I think it is way more efficient.

    What is kratom good for ?

    FEELING GOOD. At work, for instance.
    It is supposed to be stimulant at low dose and more sedative with higher doses, but in fact, it depends on the strain you choose (thaï is basically a good stimulant strain, but maeng da -which is thaï- is stronger and more sedative), and the frequency. If you take kratom only now and then, you're more likely to get sedative effects, but if you take some several times a week, you will get more and more of the stimulant side.
    This is what I have read and it does work that way for me.

    So, you can have some kratom to relax at home and have nice chats, or to help you feeling not bored at work.

    Just put a tablespoon in water, stop at the boiling point and drink all the stuff (yep, it's not very good... but there are WAY worst drinks). Add honey and lemon juice if you want, and if you intend to get the stimulant/euphoric effect, Adding a teaspoon of ephedra (sinica) powder can be very effective.

    Just make sure you don't get hooked... it's opiate-like, after all.

    edit : oh, yeah, and like opiates, it will suppress diarrhea and moderate pains. I think.
