Hello from SoCal
Hi all. New to this site and generally new to Kratom.
Just a little background I've suffered from major depressive disorder, anxiety disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder since age 16 (31 now) and chronic pain from a spinal injury since 2012.
Have been on prescribed meds for the mental stuff since onset with very little success and on pain meds since my injury with success in that the meds kill the pain but I seem to have a unique metabolism that builds tolerance at an astonishing rate thus I struggle to make the meds last as long as they should. Plus all the other quirks that come with opioid pain meds.
On to Kratom. First discovered/heard of the stuff about a year ago at a head shop and was very excited and hyped about what I was being told about it. Sounded like a great alternative/ tool for pain control. Bought and tried what they had and received no effect other than an upset stomach and disappointment. I basically took what I had, threw it in the trash, and decided it was a bunch of malarkey.
Fast forward a few weeks ago and after discovering that members of another forum were finding it quite useful and that headshops usually carry junk Kratom I decided to ask some members for a good Kratom source and was pointed to Phytoextractum. Ordered and tried some of their Bali as well as Maeng Da Red Vein and was surprised to find that it did actually work!
It helps with my pain, and my mental ailments. Have had good experiences with Phyto but I suspect there is better Kratom to be had (no offence to Phytoextractum, you guys have been great) so I posted in the Find A Vendor section asking for opinions but have yet receive a reply.
Anyhow look forward to being a part of the community here!
Welcome to the forum, JohnDoe.Kratom:
You can find a list of vetted vendors in the Vendors' section of this Web site.
I find that variety of new strains of kratom always excites me. I find it necessary to switch between several strains and vein colors to keep from building a tolerance. Phytoextractum has very good quality, but many others do, too.You just ought to look around and try several to see what works for you.
You'll find a Vendors Section button at the top of each page in the Forum.
Again, welcome. Make yourself comfortable.
This forum is a great resource and the people are wonderful. All of the vendors listed here have good kratom. I pretty much stick with the vendors here that have the best prices ($10.00 dollars an oz and under). Their kratom is just as good as the higher priced guys, for me. Some new vendors eho posted here recently hare very promising, and they have some specials going.
i'm glad you are here.
