    Be careful with this and carrying it with you as Kratom is illegal in some states; Indiana being one of them.

    There are a lot of people that use kratom to detox from opiates so I'm not sure I'd want to drive after ingesting any amount

    I don’t think anyone here is qualified to answer that, lol. It just does. It gives euphoria too which helps counteract anxiety and depression. It’s most commonly used as a painkiller though.

    Absolutely true. I find it interesting that you say that nobody here is qualified to answer that question. The experts really don't have an exact answer for many of the "drug" affect questions.

    Here's my subjective experience of this "herb". It's no joke, it's the real thing, and I'd take a break from it now and then. It definitely can relieve stress...zero doubt about that. I'm a walking stress case on a good day, but the last week, this herb has kept me calm through situations that would have had me ranting for hours. This was actually an excellent test week for the "stress" relieving affects of the herb.

    One thing I have noticed is that it stays in my system for quite awhile and taking more just extends the affects with less potency. So, I'd suggest riding it out. This isn't a "high" it's more like a medication. I've taken plenty of opiates from the dentist and this isn't the same thing by a long shot. That being said, it does affect your perceptions of the world around you. Should go without saying since part of what causes anxiety is the world around you.

    I have diabetic neuralgia and it helps with that big time. Better than any pharma medication I've taken. So, there's that.

    If they make this illegal on a federal level it would be a shame. But, I realize that some people cannot do anything responsibly, so those people will probably end up the 'poster people' for this herb. It's pretty typical in the 'anti-drug' propaganda world for the irresponsible and worst case scenario people to held forth as the typical 'victims' of a drug, rather than an atypical extreme.

    I've definitely voted with my wallet on this herb.

    Thank you.... I have been trucking now for 10 straight years and never took one medicine, no drug, nothing for my anxiety... Breathing exercises have helped me a lot and re-directing my thoughts too....
    BTW, I want NOTHING to do with any opioid crap... Have been listening to books about meditation and how to change the way my mind thinks and reacts to things...
     
    JV_620 and Sirscrapntruckalot Thank this.

    I would say the problem with that is that it can easily create dependence... withdrawal symptoms... :confused: and that can be a BIG problem...
    I believe in the power of the brain to heal the body and to change lots of its conditions....

    Kratom is natural in comes in different types. From Asia an been used for a long time as a natural remedy for various stuff. From my understand in low doses one type is similar to a painkiller, another is more of a sedative type..think people who have issues sleeping an such, an the other is more of a upper if I recall.

    I expect it to be banned in the states eventually. They sell it here in NC in certain places. I have tried it when it was first being sold here back around 2014 or so. Very few places on my sandbar sell it..in fact only one I think of that does is actually on the mainland side of the bridge. I've not herd any bad reports or crazy ods or side effects. Like I said above it's been used for a long time in Asia. I've never herd it called a opiate, but I do know it's used by people to help with withdraw from opiates and such. I'm not expert on it but I do read, an ask questions. ;)

    Anyhow...good on you for not going with the pill route. Lots of people do an just trade one issue for several others.

    Anything that can cause rectal bleeding, death, or sudden lose of consciousness can't be a good thing.(side effects on some of those meds the media, docs, etc push!)

    This useless information on Kratom brought to you by curious minds who have nothing better to do at times then learn random info for no good reason.

    Sirscrapntruckalot - Achoo!

    Yeah... I understand... it depends on the person... and that's why it's better to try something that will not create more problems and side effects than something that will... :biggrin_25519:
