Kratom.

I had some last night.
Not too bad. Didn't last too long but I took a small dose.

Bump...

I've been curious about Kratom for a few months now. I'm not trying to get some stupid "hippie high" as the title of this post suggests...I have my own personal reasons for it. Anyone here have any experience with it?

Anyone have any kind of experience with this or personal info...?
I hate to put this totally out there but I've been led to believe it helps with opiate withdrawal symptoms and insomnia.
Thought that I might run across some decent advice.

CRAP.

I should note that I approached this from a different mindset (recreational), so your mileage may vary. And keep in mind I am also an incredible lightweight and dont dabble much in this arena at all.

So the first time I got a decent opiate buzz. Pretty zonked. Lasted for a few hours. But tolerance builds up rapidly...the next couple times I tried it were very light. At a heavy dose you'll get all the opiate side effects like stomach nausea, itchiness, etc. But more importantly its by far the grossest tasting shit Ive ever tasted, Im gagging just thinking about it. Tried masking it w/ yogurt but its incredibly unpleasant. Like imagine going outside and eating fistfulls of dirt, thats what its like. You can stuff the powder into pills but that means making a colossal mess trying to stuff 20 gel caps and then choking those down in rapid succession and I honestly didnt find it worth the effort or hassle to do more than a couple times.

Again, I dont know if this really helps you or not, and Im not sure how much of this you'd have to ingest to even make a dent from a withdrawal standpoint. As far as insomnia, it will make you sleepy, so theres that.

wikipedia's take on it is cracking me up...

wikipedia wrote:A recent incident involving a 27 year old woman from Kelso, Washington was blamed on kratom consumption. The woman was arrested after being caught naked running in the street with a hammer. It should be noted, according to reports she had smoked marijuana laced with chemicals prior to this incident and no scientific evidence or proof was offered in either article which accused kratom of being responsible.

I have been drinking Kratom for a few weeks now and I have to say, NOT CRAP.
It immediately kills all withdrawal symptoms, like flicking a switch. I fucked my back up recently pretty bad, and was taking nasty level painkillers for awhile and withdrawals hit me hard and prolonged when I stopped, this stuff, one cup and it just disappeared. Just POOF! gone, no cravings, no headache, sweats, insomnia, burning in the stomach, body aches, just goes right away.
The back pain, it helps with immensely, I am super shocked at how much. It gives you the most insane, intense, terrifying dreams, every night, as well. I would not say it gets you 'high' in the classic drug sense, but it definitely gives you a good energy and positive head space at low levels and knocks you into this weird semi-unconscious awake/asleep state where your mind is going nuts dreaming at heavy levels. I didn't drink any yesterday or today after a few weeks of daily intake and did not notice any withdrawal from it, apart from thinking 'I'd be in a better mood if I drank a cup'

It tastes bad, but it's not that far off from a lumpy, sandy matcha tea. Just power it down in water with a little lemon juice. We are talking about brewing a Kratom beer.
I have tried three different strains now and they all taste the same and pretty much do the same thing.

this stuff is all over in GB - gas stations, smoke shops.. I definitely enjoy it but it's pretty expensive for what it is.. great for mixing with opiates... what's with the hippie connotation?

I highly recommend this supplier. Great service, great product, same-day shipping, and they include a free sample of a different strain with each order. They're based out of the Austin area, so I get my order next day.

Yeah they are a good one, went with them the last two times, their red indo is excellent as far as the the 'up' and 'energy' strains go

For anyone just getting into it, this is a good deal for enough to sample and get an idea:

Hey people that enjoy this substance:

If you're able to keep it under control, and you enjoy it, by all means enjoy it.

However, Kratom addiction is a real thing, and it's pretty ugly. You have to take a lot to get and stay addicted to it, but I know two people who've gone through this (a former bandmate of mine, and a former bandmate of his) and the effects are pretty similar to any serious opiate addiction. Disgusting stomach issues, aggressive assholery, the inability for certain synapses to fire without the substance. It doesn't seem to get quite as bad as heroin, but it's still pretty gnarly.

Sorry to PSA you guys, but please be careful with this shit.

I drink massive amounts if it every day so I'll let you know. So far, even after huge binges for many days, I get zero withdrawals from it if I go a day or two without. It's just 'oh yeah, that' not like opiates where it's all you are thinking of every second when you don't have any.

this stuff is illegal in Wisconsin now, likely for the addiction thing. I'd always had the impression it was mostly non habit forming for some reason. it's too bad. I enjoyed it, and I'm sure it'd been legitimately helping people with opiate addictions.

Doesn't really get you all that "high" though.

I second the apparent non-addictiveness. I've stopped cold after having used the stuff every day for as long as 3 weeks, and didn't have any averse effects at all
