For everyone looking to Kratom as painkiller, I recently was introduced to Kratom for my back injury from a few years ago. I tried pain pills hydrocodone etc and because of the risk of addiction had stayed away from them after a binge episode. Beware of your Kratom dosages! I had what is commonly called a double in the form of tea of the “green” strain (someone with more experience may enlighten me as to how many grams a “double” is) two times on an EMPTY stomach. My friend said I would be fine. I was vomiting the next day, severely weak and dehydrated! The effects were for sure as expected – a feeling of euphoria and general sense of well-being with mild painkilling effects. However the side effects were possibly the worst I’ve experienced in a while. Protect your liver and take the websites advice as to starting low and eating something before dosing! I had it again about three days after the vomiting episode with more attention paid to the right dosage and although the sense of euphoria was not as intense it was incredibly enjoyable and no side effects!
I’ve been taking this stuff for years now and I would be happy to answer anybody’s questions that they may have. I’m quite familiar with pretty much all aspects of it other than the harvesting of it and I’m ok with that! 🙂 Kratom really is great but there’s a fine line there and it’s real easy to step on it and over it….many times. So be careful. Contact me with any questions about anything or if you just wanna talk. I was an addict to opiates for over 10 years…was taking up to 60, yes 60, vicodin per day. Went through the hellish methadone program…WOW, that’s the worst. Been in rehabs…blah blah blah. You get the picture. I’m not sure if I should put my phone number on here or not so let’s just start with email and go from there. It’s nice to talk to someone that’s down to earth and has been through it or is going through it. God bless!
