    I've read about it on erowid and for some reason I thought it was illegal, but I saw some stuff called Kratom at the smoke shop when I was buying my new hookah (yay!). So I wanted to know who's tried it, what it's like, and whether it's worth trying.

    I've tried Kratom... I've got powdered kratom extract online and that was half decent, I'm not that into opioids but it was approx. on par with a moderate dose of hydrocodone in strength, weed really compliments the experience as well.

    I've tried headshop kratom once but it was significantly weaker than the stuff I got online and more expensive so I'd recommend ordering it online if that's a viable option.

    Good tip. Where did you order yours online?
  4. I've never tried it but NUMEROUS (many, many, many!) people have recommended it to me over n over again (lol).... I've only heard of people using it for opiate withdrawl... but anyways, I probably would have ended up getting it but we decided to go the suboxone route instead but anyways... just for future reference, I am interested in finding out if it's in head shops everywhere and all (all states and if it's commonly found in head shops or just every now and then...).... I only just recently found you you even COULD buy it in head shops...

    Yeah I didn't know that you could either. I was surprised to see it there.

    If you can get good quality stuff, its supposed to be pretty good. I've only tried two different head shop ones: 4g of Maeng Da in capsule form (Surprisingly pretty damn good!) and tonight I tried a 3oz Kratom "shot". The shot tasted god awful, and is incredibly weak. Both cost the same amount, and the only one i would try again would be the capsules.

    Are you allowed to ask for sources on this site for Kratom? I'm dying to know!

    You can ask, but links aren't supposed to be allowed, I believe. If anyone asks for a link, usually someone will just PM the answer to you.

    Yea its kind of like moderate pill high. Except there is a little more visual quality to it, maybe like a really strong herb high.

    The only thing is it kind of gives you a bit of a hang over. Like a tired sluggish feeling the next day, nothing too bad tho.

    A LOT of what I have seen is weak or stale. I don't know exactly how our pickers choose out there, but freshness is a chunk of it. The best I have found so far is what we import ourselves and I am sure part of that is freshness. Kratom wholsale's seemed like you had to take more and still not really get there. There are more energetic strains and more sleepy strains ~ we get strains across that spectrum, but cater to practitioners and apothecary suppliers. Just now bringing in enough to offer to head shops.
    But I have to agree that "vicozen" and other head shop stuff is lame lame. Online is typically better than those even if it's not quite the quality we've been pulling in.

    I am used to top shelf botanicals. I am sure it isn't all of them...but the head shops don't seem to give a shit about quality, just easy money and they sell that stale weak crap for the same or more than ours which is for pros. Working on that problem in my small way haha but yeah, if it has titties on it and comes in flashy colored's usually the crappinest of all. Roflol

    Yeah, freshness is incredibly important with kratom. I just had 10g of red vein bali from kratom depot and Im incredibly disappointed. Checked out Kratom wholesale, and i just don't think i want to spend that much quite yet.

    Oddly enough my best experiance with kratom has been from a headshop so far. Kinda sad to say. Anyhow, the quest for decent kratom continues.

    You wouldn't happen to be in MI would you? We have a couple stores going there and beyond that I was gonna say that it is probably because your head shop folk felt the same way and went on a hunting. We went through three importers and that many or more mainland sources at chunks of bucks each and just kept digging digging until we hooked up with our crew now and yeah, spent around a grand before really getting anywhere.

    Nope, I'm in FL. Ironically enough, after posting that the 10g's was disappointing I was hit pretty damn hard by the kratom. I felt great other than a few itches and some nausea and ended up laying down for like three hours until i crashed out. So without sounding like a salesman, I think I'll keep ordering from kratom depot. Guess capsules take longer to hit you?

    The headshop kratom (maeng da) was really nice, although it was incredibly overpriced. I think i'll stick with Red Vein Bali, as i can get an ounce of that for the same price of a half ounce of maeng da. All though, maeng da was a lot easier on the stomach and was definitely stronger

    I absolutely keep kratom in the house at all times. I often use my medicine up early because I'm under prescribed by my doctor and I have to take care of myself. Withdrawal isn't an option with my full time job. It does an amazing job of keeping me well enough to keep going on with life and it actually works out for pain as well. I get the powdered red strains, once in awhile I'll spend a lot more on gold reserve. I don't order that very often though, just occasionally. I don't know why this has not yet been forwarded to mainstream medical practice. It's a shame the way they can push their addictive meds down our throats, but aren't trying this amazing plant. Also the way the media portrays it, is just plain old and stupid. All I know is that it has been a tremendous help to manage the god awful withdrawals and getting on with life.

    No selling trading or linking sources in threads please :)

    kratom is good medicine. gotta be careful with it though, addiction really sneaks up.

    Yeah figures members can't get from each other wholesale when it is "incredibly overpriced" and do that hippy thing.....ahahahaha!

    I was just doing some more research on it. Looks like they're on the way to illegalizing Kratom. Sigh. I'm going to buy a shit load of it before that happens lol

    I had some powder that you added to hot water to make instant keratomileusis tea. It felt like having a few hydrocodone and there are probably better products than the one I had. Some people like it a lot.

    Got some red vein Borneo today and I must say I am a believer. This shit is legit. No more meds left and ordered a few days ago from a site I found good prices and it came in less than 2 days. Took some this morning after I put it in capsule form. Seven capsules was maybe about 7grams. Then about an hour ago took 2 teaspoons leveled and now am feeling like a nice lil oxy buzz. So yeah this stuff is for real can't believe it.
