You will be suprised with kratom....its one of the few legal highs that work as advertised. Lower doses seem to speed me up, but the higher doses are much like an opiate buzz. As far as dosage goes, that is something I believe each individual should work out for themselves, due to all the super and premium labels. I used a heaping teaspoon to start with.

kratom makes me feel high,then low,then i puked and feel like crap.it is an aquired taste that i havent aquired yet.
i say save your money and go buy some p.pods on ebay.why settle for less when you can still get the good stuff?

u can find some good deals on froogle.google.com or on ebay :)
the commercial grade kratom IMO got the best bang for your buck!
my fav way to take kratom is to grind it to a fine powder in my coffee grinder/blender.. then make up some hot tea.. take a spoon of kratom in the mouth and wash it down with tea :!!!!
IMHO making tea out of kratom isn't nearly as potent as eating the leaf whole.....also, lately ive been mixing a small dose of kratom with poppy seed tea.. yes .. poppy seeds from the grocery store... if your lucky u can find them in bulk ... i take about 8 oz of seeds and mix them in COLD water for about 30 minutes..strain them out with a sock and blast off for a good 8 hours.. u can wash the seeds 2 or 3 times and get a decent dose each round...carefull cus its easy to OD on them and end up puking all night.. they take a good hour or 2 to kick in..

ya i love this stuff and mycotopia rocks! :hippie:

is one of the only legal highs that get you
high...besides salvia(which is a schedual 1 in
a state already)..get it while it lasts is right..
i've tried this product many times...and if you
like opiates then you will love kratom...i personally
give it 2 thumbs up..:D

But then, of course, you'll have a Kratom habit like me :)
I find kratom to be an EXTREMELY acceptable alternative
to popping painkillers (or worse).
The only downside, beyond being addicted to a substance that I
can't (yet) easily grow in the backyard, is that I have to take some
about every 3-5 hours, depending on my food intake and how "OK" I
want to feel.
It's a lot better than taking antidepressants though, IMO, as it really
works. But just like an antidepressant, if you stop taking it you'll feel like
shit. I've come off the Kratom a few times (obviously not permanently)
and it was MUCH easier than coming off of any opiate based med.
There are any number of internet sources out there, many claim to be
"the real source," but quality and product varies within vendors and it's
a crap shoot either way. I buy from a number of sites and they've all sent
me garbage at one time or another. I buy the commercial leaf (cheapest)
and I grind it up in a coffee grinder. Sometimes I'll put it into capsules,
especially if I'm going public for hours on end, as no one really looks at you
like you're weird if you take 4-5 "0" caps of an herbal pill (I say it's echinacea,
or however you spell that shit).
Otherwise I just snarf the powder straight. I fold a peice of paper (business
cards work great) in half, dump some on there, and tilt it back the 'ol gullet.
Tastes like shit, but once you get good at it, you don't get any on you palate.
The extracts are truly wonderful, but not economical if you plan on using it
to manage .... well, whatever the hell it is that you want to manage with a
psychoactive substance.. depression, pain, the pain of depression, addiction,
modern life, a shitty job, no job, a shitty relationship, no relationship, etc...
I but it by the kilo - it's like getting a small pillow full of Kratom in the mail :)
I pay anywhere from $150 - $200 a kilo, and I find it's money well spent.
It lasts me anywhere from 2-4 months, depending on how not-depressed
or addicted I want to feel, and how much I share with friends (my friends are
all fiends for Kratom).
It gives great energy - super for a workout, but I've also pushed myself too
far while on it and hurt myself badly enough that I had to stop working out
for four months due to muscle injury. I also crave cigarettes when I take it,
which sucks, as I quit four years ago and now I'm slipping back into the habit.
Great together with mary jane, and an INCREDIBLE adjunct to shrooms...
I get NO nausea w/ kratom and shrooms and it really kicks it in sweet.
Well, that's all I've got for now. Good to be back (been out for several months)
hopefully I'll be able to pop in a bit more here and there :)

Just recieved a couple o Kratom seed pods and an OZ of superpowder..
So i'm trying 5 grams in hot apple cider ,The taste is hard to mask -a bit acrid like chewing an asprin...
The seeds shown below are tiny ,,The un-opened pod is on the left...
My plan is to germinate these seeds on the surface of a very fine textured soil-less starting mix... then transplant....Any tips are appreciated...
Ok i'm beginning to feel kinda mellow with a bit of numness in me mouth like with Kava...:eusa_danc

hello friends.... haven't posted in awhile, just started researching this plant - Mitragyna speciosa - due to someone's mention of it in a thread, can't remember who what when or where right now - just was wondering if anyone has dealt with it (which i'm sure at least one person has) - - - was wondering what grade would be sufficient and what price range i should be looking for, i don't want to get ripped off because the prices seem to vary through the research i have done. i was intrigued by the proclaimed opiate-like buzz - not a big opiate user - but a fan nonetheless. any help would be appreciated - thanks in advance - and rock on! :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:
I tried the 250x extract kind first - a 1/4 teaspoon to 1/2 teaspoon
mixed in any liquid - it's like 3 coffees and 3 beers at the same
time. Take it early in the day, it is anti-depressive - euphoric -
but mild too. Don't take at night - can cause insomnia. I like it,
but strong beer gives me the same buzz at 1/10 the price..

Don't take too much, or you will be vomiting like crazy. lol, not too unpleasant, but not fun by any strech.

Put it on a business card (or some sized peice of paper) folded in half,
tip in about a tablespoon of powder, pour it on the back of the tongue,
chase w/ water.
Applesauce and Kratom sounds like a punishment to me ! :)
If powder mouth doesn't do it for you, I'd invest $15 in a pill machine and
some 00 capsules : www.capsuline.com

Planted those seeds - will post on their progress....

It worked well for me
I purchased super kratom and
mixed 2 grams with water
It was easy for me to get down
not bad tasting at all, just a lil chalky
I dont recall the exact price
but it was cheap
Go with a good vendor and you will have no problems.
I wish you the best of luck,
