Kratom Effects / Kratom High / Kratom Buzz / Kratom Feelings

I was one of the individuals that questioned if kratom would actually work. After my first experience of the kratom high many years ago, I was instantly a massive fan. The Kratom high is a result of a rather unique drug in that a low to moderate dose will usually (but not always) have stimulating effects, while a high dose provides a sedated feeling. This is apparently because the active alkaloids have both stimulant and sedative effects. This probably depends both on blood level and individual differences between users. I layed a kroad map of kratom effects below.

The stimulant buzz level: At the stimulant level the mind is more alert, physical energy and sometimes sexual energy is increased, ability to do hard monotonous physical work may be improved, one is more talkative, friendly, and sociable. Some people find this feeling edgy rather than pleasant & some people love it.

The sedative-euphoric-analgesic level: At this dosage you will be less sensitive to physical or emotional pain, feel and look calm, have a general feeling of comfortable pleasure, and may enter a pleasant dreamy reverie. You may experience some itching or sweating. Your pupils may be constricted (small). It is possible you may feel nauseated, but if you lie down and relax the nausea should quickly cease. You may find your appreciation of music is increased. It will be very pleasant to lie down on your back in a semi-darkened room, with eyes closed, and just listen to your favorite music. If you do this you may be fortunate enough to enter the delightful mixed-state of "waking-dreaming" where you have one foot in dreamland and the other foot in the real world. This state was much prized by the 19th century Romantic writers, who, lacking knowledge of kratom, resorted to the much more habit-forming narcotic, opium, to achieve it. Kratom effects usually last about six hours. The higher the dose, the stronger the effects, and the longer they last. Many people report a positive "afterglow" the next day.

What kratom effects are associated with different doses?

(dosage guidelines - based on Thai Kratom Powder)
2-5 grams = mild effects / feelings (typically the kratom effects are stimulant-like)
6-10 grams = medium strength effects / feelings (the kratom effects can be stimulant-like or sedative-euphoric-analgesic)
11-20 grams = strong effects / feelings (sedative-euphoric-analgesic effects; too strong for highly sensitive people)
21-50 grams = very strong effects/feelings (sedative-euphoric-analgesic effects; TOO HIGH FOR MOST PEOPLE)

Caution: These dosage guidelines apply to kratom leaves (not extracts). People vary in sensitivity to kratom, and different batches of kratom vary in potency (sometimes quite a lot), so these dosage estimates should be regarded as loose approximations. One should always start with a low dose when experimenting with a new batch of kratom. One can then increase the dose gradually with subsequent experiments until one obtains the desired level of effects. DO NOT take a strong, or very strong dose, the first time you are sampling a new batch of kratom. Most people experience nausea when using doses above 25 grams. Sensitive individuals may experience nausea at lower doses, but usually not at doses below 10 grams. For this reason, it is best to take kratom on an empty stomach when using strong doses (i.e. wait about 3 hours after eating). Some people are hypersensitive to kratom effects, and may experience adverse reactions (such as severe and prolonged vomiting) when using strong doses.

What are the risks? How safe is it?

When kratom is taken by itself (without mixing it with other drugs), the greatest risk is falling asleep while engaged in hazardous activities. NEVER drive while under the influence of a kratom high, even if you feel stimulated, rather than sleepy, for sleepiness may come on you without warning. Use common sense. Do not use power tools or climb ladders while under the influence of a kratom buzz. Be careful not to leave a pot on a lit stove and then fall asleep.

Pregnant women should not take any drug or medication except on medical advice. Since there have been no studies of the risks of kratom use by pregnant women, it is not known whether it could cause birth defects or fetal death. We strongly recommend that any woman who could possibly be pregnant NOT use kratom.

Experience Report 1:

I took 3 grams of kratom 15x extract mixed in with a warm glass of milk and honey. The taste was not bad. After taking down the kratom the effects set in
after about 30 minutes. I was in a state of complete relax mode. It put my entire body in a very chill mode. I sat in my chair for about 1 hr and didnt want to move. It was completely relaxing and I had very small waves that sent throughout my body, very settle but nice. The Kratom 15x effects lasted for about 3 hours. When the effects wore off, I drove home and noticed that I thorougly enjoyed music. It seemed as if the kratom heightened my hearing senses, as I wanted to hear music the entire way home. I was listening to melodic trance and felt i was in a state of trance, so intuned with the music.

My overall kratom 15x experience was great. I zoned out in my chair, and became in touch with my musical senses. The kratom almost felt as if it was a pain killer, but without the side effects of being drowsy afterwards. I also slept like a champ with no such hangover. I'm recommending this leaf to all my friends.

Experience Report 2

My experience with kratom has been mostly positive. I learned the best methods through trial and error i.e., best taken on an empty stomach. The buzz begins 30-60 minutes after ingestion (15x in a fruit smoothie). The first thing I notice is a marked improvement in my mood. It increases my motivation and stimulates my thought processing. After a while I feel friendly and content. Exercise feels effortless and the pain in my right foot diminishes. On several occasions I have found it prevents me falling asleep or it disrupts my sleep. It blunts my hunger for up to 6 hours, but upon eating, my hunger rapidly increases. However, it increases my desire for healthy food.

It shocked me to see the recommendation of limiting kratom to 1 or 2 times per week. I have been using on a daily basis. This new knowledge disturbs me because I am quite health conscious.
