How Kratom Saved my life

by Editor |August 31, 2017 |0 Comments | Kratom News, Stories | , , ,

his is my experience. I used to have a horrible heroin addiction 10 yrs ago and it quickly destroyed my life. I had gotten endocarditis and had heart surgery, lost all my things and addiction killed my sweetheart a cpl years ago. Needless to say those experiences stopped my addiction. Then several years later I was having horrible wisdom tooth pain pushing on my jawbone. I tried some suboxone for the pain and would switch to methadone. I really don’t know how but I ended up taking it too long and got hooked physically. I never got high and did not want this but this is what happened and how I got stuck in this cycle. I had been through Withdrawal before in the past and of course it scared the shit out of me. And the thought of withdrawing from methadone and the horror stories I have heard made it worse.

I only had about a 20 milligram a day dependence which 2 years ago I lowered anywhere from 5 to 10 milligram today with the intention of weaning myself so that I can get off of it for good. The fear kept me on methadone for about 5 years and the fact that I have a job that I can’t take off from to go through detox. Last year I heard about Kratom from a friend on facebook. I researched and got a free sample pack with the intention of using it to get off methadone for good but I was afraid to start because I didn’t know how effective it would be and I had to work all the time. Well a week ago I did some more research, got a kratom supply and I decided it was now or never so at the end of the work week Thursday I took my last mall 5 milligram dose of methadone and the next day all I used was Kratom every 6 hours I would take a teaspoon.

I have a really good diet and am vegetarian. I added more potassium, vitamin e, magnesium, coQ10 and take fiber and vegetable protein shakes and also grapefruit juice to aid in the detox process. I am now at 6 and a half days into withdrawal and I am shocked at how good I feel. Problems sleeping but for the most part I am pain free except for some tiredness. I’ve kept it a secret because I never took anything to get high it was just for a severe pain that I was having and got physically dependent. My body will always have a tolerance to opiates. I do not ever want to live that life again and I have not had urges despite seeing the love of my life relapse and die and I could do nothing to save him. Not even that has tempted me but kept me stronger than ever in that regard. Methadone is no joke. It kept me like a slave for years having to make sure that I took it with me if I was leaving the house for several days, having to make sure that I had it in stock and didn’t run out. Not being able to go on trips for too long of a time because I had to make sure I could have access to the medication.

Needless to say the sh** it does to your body that you don’t even know how it is killing you. Today I can say I’m finally free. I can’t believe that I did it without taking time off work and was just believing that I could do it. I still have methadone in my house which I’m about to pour down the sink. I never wanna see that crap again or be a slave to it. I know this is a long story but I needed to share with someone I am just so overjoyed. I hope that someone in the same situation or who is even worse off than me reads my story and has the courage to do it once and for all. Kratom will ease your symptoms to.

Congratulations! You’ve made a huge leap of success! I believe methadone does TERRIBLE things to your body. Did you ever take a look around at the other people in the clinic. Why does everyone look pregnant? After years of methadone use, the liver is damaged. I have no research on this to back me up, so take it with a grain of salt. I do know many long term methadone patients who have suffered liver damage. Often this damage is attributed to the patient’s past with heroin or other drugs, but if you hear the testimonies of these people, they believe it’s from the methadone. There is no way to truly prove methadone is safe due to the fact that there have not been long term methadone studies done on healthy adults who do not have a back ground of drug use, so the drug companies can always attribute any long term damage to the patient’s history, not to the methadone.




Congratulations! Your story is heartbreaking but you’re fighting your demons and that is something I can identify with. It sounds like you’re doing well with Kratom…that is awesome! I hope you never have to use methadone again, it’s almost unbelievable to me that they put you on it in the first place, especially that long. Unbelievable! I’m so happy you are finding your way with Kratom, and that you shared your story with us. I look forward to hearing about your progress…keep us updated!



It’s always wonderful to see Kratom help save lives by weening off of dubious substances. There are so many medicinal benefits to Kratom it almost kills me to think that politics are getting in the way of it potentially (and deservedly) become approved by the FDA as a supplement, right on the shelves alongside Kava and Valerian Root. Anyone seeking a “legal high” with Kratom will no doubt be disappointed to find out it is simply a fantastic remedy for many ailments, including depression, anxiety, pain relief, and a way to “get the monkey off the back” for some.

My Success Story Using Kratom To Get Off Opiates

by Editor |August 31, 2017 |0 Comments | Kratom Info, Stories | , , , ,


Kratom is an AMAZING, rarely spoken-of resource for opiate Detox. It is unfortunate the US is now trying to make it a Schedule I substance, similar to the likes of Cocaine, Heroin & Ecstasy.

Pretty much any medication or substance you take, your body will develop a dependence to it because it causes the body to change (it exerting its effects so it can work).

The key is recognizing this and not letting the use get out of hand, or turn into abuse.

Something else that anyone who is thinking of quitting opiates should consider is, no matter what, you will feel the effects of withdrawal, albeit physical or mental.

That’s your body’s way of expelling the toxic buildup of the drug in your body and trying to adjust to how it was before you started abusing. If you go into it with a positive, yet tolerant mindset things will be much easier for you.

Be Grateful For Kratom
I did not do that the first few times, and ended up right back in the Lions Den because I expected things like Kratom to be a miracle based off a lot of what I read, and then when I still felt cravings, got so frustrated and felt it was not working for me, and gave in to temptation, rather than be so thankful for how much pain I was being saved from taking the Kratom.

Kratom Dosages For Opiate Withdrawal
Depending on how much you abuse per day (I was blowing around 210mg of oxy a day for 3-4 years) and due to the very short half life and length of effects of Kratom, I found 6-7 grams, 3 to 4 times a day to be the perfect amount during Detox.

It varies per person, just make sure, if you start feeling euphoric effects from Kratom, you’re probably taking too much.

As I mentioned earlier it can be addicting too, especially to people quitting opiates, who now have little to no chemicals in the brain producing pleasure, so anything that does you automatically gravitate towards.

During acute Detox I took around 6-7 grams, 3-4x per day, basically when I started to feel the symptoms coming back, and then once right before I went to bed so I could try to sleep.

I still had somewhat difficulty sleeping even on Kratom during acute Detox, but I am such a light sleeper anyways and attributed it to that, as when I have detoxed cold turkey I went as long as 4 days with 30 minutes of sleep.

Take Care of Your Body
A crucial part a lot of people overlook while detoxing/abusing opiates is how much you have neglected your body. It is so vital during this stage that you nourish your body with clean, healthy foods, tons of veggies, a LOT of protein, and cut back on caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, and sugar as they will cause you to crash.

It might seem like a quick fix initially, but, speaking from experience, you will regret it after a few hours (again, everyone is different, so maybe not!) another step that helped me not only quit Kratom, but through the early stages of Detox was FORCING myself to exercise, and do things that (prior to abusing pills) made me happy.

I truly underestimated the importance of exercising throughout this. I am 3 months clean currently and can say I would not be if it had not been for exercise. It took my mind off of cravings, made me feel relaxed and happy (huge plus, especially during Detox).

Kratom Dose

How to Take and Dose Kratom

Following on from our introduction to Kratom, I want to elaborate in more detail how to take it and how to find the right Kratom dosage for you. Kratom really does have a “sweet spot” more so than a lot of other compounds so it requires a bit of trial and error, starting off low then increasing your amount. Don’t let this put you off, however, as this process can be a lot of fun!

It helps to be informed. Don’t be one of those people that take’s either too much or too little Kratom just one time, doesn’t experience the results they expect and then gives up. That’s not how it works and it will be doing a disservice to the powers of this plant.

Ways to Take Kratom Powder

As discussed, Kratom powder is ingested rather than smoked. Here are some popular methods for consuming it:

Toss n’ Wash: Again, this is the simplest, quickest way to get Kratom in your system and the method I typically use. I measure out the amount I need into a glass, gently tip the powder into my mouth, swill it around then swallow. Some people use a teaspoon to scoop it into their mouth and you can split it into as many mouthfuls as you prefer (i.e. not the whole amount at once). See my tips for Toss n’ Washing Kratom to learn how do it without throwing up.

Make a Tea: This is another popular method that I’ve already mentioned. You boil up the powder with some water for 30 minutes or so, let it sit, then strain off the liquid. Some people feel this results in better and more consistent effects but it’s obviously more time consuming to produce. The taste isn’t too bad and you can drink it hot or cold. It’s quite nice chilled actually.

Add to Yoghurt: Another option that I haven’t actually tried personally but some people recommend, is to add the powder to some yoghurt. Use a fruit flavored one as the goal is to mask the taste of the powder (it’s not particularly nice)! The reason I don’t do this is that it’s actually better to take Kratom on an empty stomach (see below) and this would be negating that fact. Personally, I try to get the process over with as quickly as possible rather than tasting the powder any longer than I have to, but many people swear by this approach.

Add to Protein Shake: This method I have tried with success, though again you’ll be taking the powder with calories and tasting the flavor longer than you have to, but it can work. Some people even claim they get better effects when taking their Kratom this way but I don’t believe there’s any scientific reason backing this.

In Capsule Form: I generally DON’T recommend buying Kratom pills, but if you capsule it yourself it’s certainly a convenient way to get it down your hatch without even a hint of the taste. However, one drawback to this approach is that it can require quite a few capsules at one time to get an adequate Kratom dose (10+ pills). Take with plenty of water though and you’ll be fine, and it’s definitely convenient for when you’re on the go.

These are probably the most common methods for ingesting Kratom so take your pick and discover what you prefer. Now, let’s talk about dosage:

How to Dose Kratom

As I’ve already mentioned several times and you’re probably sick of hearing, you need to find your “sweet spot”.

A Good Kratom Dosage?Start small (2 – 3g, see the below guide) and if you don’t feel anything after 20 minutes, take it up a notch. You want to feel the effects ever so slightly and take it from there, not the other way round. Too little will obviously result in nothing but even just slightly too much will give you a “heady” feeling so bear that in mind. If you feel a tad nauseous it’s a sign that your dose is too high. Way too much (10g + in one go) and you’ll probably puke.

High quality Kratom hits at 3 – 5 grams! Other sites might recommend higher doses but if you use the source I recommend you really won’t need any more than this, I promise. Not all Kratom is created equal so get the best and you’ll require much less. Your tolerance level might necessitate a higher required dose of course, which I’ll cover later one.

A Beginners Kratom Dosage Guide

Here’s a general guide for discovering your required dose for a particular strain. Do this for every new strain you try.

It’s important that you take Kratom on an empty stomach, so first thing in the morning or 2 or 3 hours after food. It can be done with food in your stomach but it will require a higher dose and I would encourage you to get a feel for it on an empty stomach first as a reference point.

Step 1: Take 2 or 3 grams on an empty stomach. You should start to feel something after 20 minutes or so.

Step 2: Assess how you feel after 30 – 45 minutes. If you think you need some more, take another 1 to 2 grams.

Step 3: Assess how you feel after 15 – 30 minutes. This really should be enough to feel something if you’re using the Kratom I recommend.

Step 4: If you still think you could do with a bit more, bump it up by another 0.5 to 2 grams.

Step 5: Hopefully by this point you can feel something and feel good! From here, just ride it out for a good 4 or 5 hours.

Step 6: After 4 or 5 hours have passed and you want to take more, repeat this process with the SAME strain you used earlier in the day.

As a beginner starting out with fresh receptors, 3 to 5 grams total will probably see you right. If you’re sub 68KG (150lbs) in weight, as a male or female, a lower dose of 1.5 grams starting out may even be enough.

For irregular use or if you rotate strains regularly to avoid tolerance, this will be as much as you’ll ever need or at least not much more.

Important Tips

Here are a couple of things I think are worth mentioning when taking Kratom and starting out for the first time, or with a strain you’ve never tried before.

Stay Hydrated! Much like coffee, Kratom will dehydrate you significantly so be sure to drink a lot of water with it. If you feel a bit “heady” it could be that you’ve taken too high a dose but if you’ve followed the guide above, it’s more likely you need a drink. You willneed more fluid than usual when taking Kratom so bear this in mind if you’re out and about.

Take on an Empty Stomach: As discussed, this is quite important, especially when starting out. You can experiment with taking Kratom with food in your stomach at a later stage but it’s good to have a reference point to work from. A full or partially full stomach will require a higher Kratom dose.

Each Strain May Require a Different Dose: This is quite important actually. Be sure to use the above dosage guidelines when ever you try a new strain for the first time as it’s likely different Kratom will have different “sweet spots” for you. Some of the “faster” strains can definitely hit harder so you’ll certainly want to start on the low end with those.

Keep a Log: It helps to make notes of your first experiences with each strain, including how how much you took, when you took it etc. and jot down your thoughts and feelings as you have them. This will help you build on each experience as you refer back to these notes, so it only gets better with each consecutive time. Personally, I’ve always written down my notes in TextEdit on Mac; quick and simple and easy to find.

Is Kratom an opiate ?

KRATOM IS NOT AN OPIATE, it is part of the coffee family and it will give you a natural burst of energy.  If does hit the opiate receptor though.

Here is a more specific article that I have found

For recreational drug users looking for an opioid like high without the legal problems of heroin, fentanyl, and oxycodone, the Southeast Asian plant called kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) has provided an attractive alternative. But, acting on anecdotal reports of people becoming dependent on kratom, six states, including Vermont and Indiana, have banned the sale and use of the herb.

The most potent of the related alkaloids was the mitragynine oxidation product 7-hydroxymitragynine. Its MOR potency was one-tenth that of morphine, while mitragynine’s was one-hundredth.

“Mitragynine is not a particularly very potent opioid,” says Dalibor Sames, a chemist at Columbia University who led the team. But, he says, it’s possible that the plant provides a high enough dose of the compound to overcome that weak potency. “The plant is designed to be a factory for mitragynine,” Sames says. Mitragynine can amount to almost two-thirds of the alkaloid extract from a kratom leaf, adds Andrew C. Kruegel of Columbia, who is the paper’s first author.

What is Kratom?

by Editor |August 28, 2017 |0 Comments | Kratom Info | , ,



Kratom is a leafy tree that grows from 3-15 meters tall. Its leaves contain mitragynine and are chewed as an opiate substitute and stimulant in Thailand and South-East Asia, primarily among the working class. It has a relatively long history of human use.

Kratom is a very interesting plant. It is probably one of the most potent legal herbal psychoactives (without being a psychedelic) and its effects can be compared to that of opiates. However, unlike opiates, it is mildly stimulating, and has mild psychedelic properties that make it mix well with many psychedelic drugs, although most opiates are used to bring people down from unpleasant trips. The plant contains a plethora of different alkaloids with different effects, the concentrations of which vary between strains, seasons and localities which make the high of the plant complex and highly variable.


Stimulant; Intoxicant. With a duration of around 2 – 5 hours the effects include:


  • Simultaneous stimulation & sedation
  • Feelings of empathy
  • Feelings of euphoria
  • Aphrodisiac qualities for some people
  • Vivid waking dreams
  • Useful with physical labor


  • Relatively short duration
  • Change in ability to focus eyes
  • Analgesia


  • Very bitter taste
  • Dizziness, nausea and/or vomiting at higher doses
  • Occasional Increase in (perceived?) body temperature. (feel hot and sweaty

Just Some Kratom Info

by Editor |August 28, 2017 |0 Comments | Kratom Info | , , , ,

Kratom Mitragyna speciosa) is a tree-like plant from Southeast Asia that belongs to the same family of plants as coffee and gardenias. Kratom has been used as an herbal remedy in Thailand and neighboring countries for hundreds of years for a number of ailments. It has dose-dependent stimulant and opiate-like effects. In addition to being used for an energy boost as well as for some mild pain relief, there is some anecdotal evidence to suggest that it may be helpful in the management of withdrawal symptoms associated with opiate addiction.

Since 2000, there has been a substantial increase in the rates of kratom use in North America and Europe both as a recreational drug and for the self-management of pain and opiate withdrawal a practice advised against by most medical professionals

Kratom Works on many things from pain to mood, it is part of the coffee family and it works very well.  It also has no physical addictive qualities though some people may dispute this.  It works VERY well on joint pain arthritis and other mild pain related issues.  It works very well as a mood enhancer and excellent as a natural boast of energy.  It comes in many different strands of color white, red, green, yellow and make from mang da to bali to bornao ect.

Another Kratom Success Story

by Editor |August 27, 2017 |0 Comments | Stories | , , , ,

My name is Mark Shaver. I am 49 years old, I am a dad of four, married, a teacher and an ordained pastor with a Masters of Divinity from Denver Seminary.  I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University Northern Colorado in 1989, and with Honors from Denver Seminary in 2001. I’ve been teaching and preaching since 1989.

I also have used kratom for the past 3 years. I had a bad accident that damaged both my skull/brain, spine and my pelvis about 15 years ago–I fell on the ice outside my home. As a result of the TBI and spinal cord injury, plus the pelvic damage, I was in terrible pain and prescribed opioids which gave me horrible side effects. I was also diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and got sleep apnea through all this. I was no longer able to work as a full time pastor or substitute teach anymore as I had been. After finding a doctor who was able to help me, I started using kratom for the remaining pain that was not alleviated by therapy, and also used it as a direct means to get me off ALL the opioid medications the other doctors had prescribed. In one year I was back both in my pulpit, and now am finishing up my Masters in Special Education. I would not be teaching and working without having access to kratom.

Bottom line: Do my degrees and graduating with honors mean a thing if I can’t go to work? Does having a family, a spouse who loves me and a home mean a thing if you can’t enjoy it? I went back to coaching my son’s baseball team. That wouldn’t have happened without the kratom. I teach. I preach. I’m active. It’s from being well for the first time in years that I am able to be a productive part of society.

I am 70 years old. I was in a car wreck in 1995 which took my life as I knew it and left me in excruciating pain and operations on back, neck, intern body parts…reconstruction surgery.  I was on 5 10/325 Vicodin pain pills a day and it only helped dull the pain at times.  At other times I just suffered by myself quietly. I was also on muscle relaxers and nerve pills. It took me forever to just be able to eat without choking and sleep was never easy to come by. Last year my daughter talked me into trying kratom. I have been so grateful to her!  I feel no pain!  I have to take my dose in a capsule due to throat damage. I take two at a time and only take that twice during the day. At night before bed I take two more.  I’m not on any other medicines and feel wonderful. Thank you for the natural pain relief…I was and ways will be a herb tea user but just couldn’t believe that I could receive such relief with any herb.
