Hello, I would like to tell you guys about Kratom. Kratom is a herb that is legal in most places on the world, and I think its pretty amazing. In smaller doses it has positive effect on mood, energy on concentration and it helped me a lot. You ingest small amounts of ground up plant matter. Its disgusting but one can get used to. It is not some kind of hardcore drug, its subtle and wont get you smashed. Unless of course one takes a gigantic dose, but that is inadvisable, as that probably will make the person incredibly nauseos. I really, really, really regretted trying that. Its not something to chase the high with. The very first time one might experience abit of nausea anyway, but nothing a ginger tea cant fix. Drink plenty water, start very slow, and its good. I suggest anyone who is interested in some herbal relief for PTSD symptoms to research the plant. It is not very expensive, and a little goes a long way. There are many good online vendor specialized on it, and it should not be bought anywhere else. Also check the legal status for yourself. I cant possibly exhaustively tell all about it, but I will write abit about my experience with it. If you want to know more discuss it here or research on the net. Plenty of info available. I use it for a long time now, several small doses daily. 3g a pop, depending on the strain, does it nicely for me. It helps my anxiety and my ability to concentrate immensly. That helps me to be more mature about living with and handling PTSD, and also enjoying all sorts of activities that I would have a hard time with if my anxiety is high (which is 90% of the time.) Very nice in social situations or for work or excercise. Also helps me sleep, but I dont take it for that. Its just a nice effect. I dont think its smart to take it shortly before going to bed, its effect lasts long enough to use it a few hours before. The very first few times, or after long break, it can give a mild and pleasent high. That will stop pretty quickly when getting used to it and what remains are the positive effects on mood, focus, energy. There are some horror stories out there about kratom withdrawal and they are pretty much bunk. If one uses alot of coffee and quits cold turkey, its the same. Kratom might take a bit longer. So I just taper it over 2-4 days and I do only experience one issue: Sleeping can be difficult because of restlessness. At the moment I use a bit more then I want to, and that is because my thyroid is acting up and that always mean extremely horrible times for me. Kratom helps me a lot with that, but I take more to combat the intense symptoms of my thyroid problems. Without kratom its just pure hell, and with it I can still have some semblence of normalcy. When my hormones get adjusted I make it a point to take some time off to get back to the more sensible level. So yeah, Kratom is amazing and it really, really helped me when I quit drinking and nowadays to be more productive, social and happy. I recommend! It works with alkaloids that use the opiate receptors and is also used to help for opiate withdrawals. Its not an opiate itself, but if one had troubles with such stuff or drugs in generell before, one might want to stay clear of it. Anyone uses Kratom and loves it? Any question? I hope this could help someone needing that plant finding it. Just use it wisely, make a plan, dont overdo it. Many people advise to only take it every other day, which is smart.
