Hi from Ohio
Hello everyone! I'm a nurse from Ohio who takes Kratom for chronic pain (despite being only 26). I prefer it over any of the narcotics they tried to poison me with. I've been taking Kratom for 5 years off and on. I take Kratom via capsules (both bought and home made) with turmeric (mixed with fresh black pepper), cimetidine 200mg, and valerian root everyday around 6:30pm. Cimetidine makes it last longer and I end up using a lot less Kratom than if I didn't use it. If I drink the powder or tea, it's in the daytime. I usually take the tea or powder drink after lunch since it hurts my stomach to drink it on a empty stomach. Kratom REALLY helps with my social anxiety. Sometimes I just won't shut up :p. I buy my capsules at KratomCapsules and my powder at IamShaman. However, IamShaman's powder have been tasting especially gross lately (not to say Kratom don't taste gross already 😉 ) so I'm looking for a new vendor of powdered and dry leaf Kratom. Love to discuss this great planet and would love to help it not get banned. B)
Hello, Nice to Meet you. Sounds like you have it down. 🙂 This plant is a life saver for sure.
Hi Welcome to ILK HicKori! Since you are in Ohio I would Recommend either OH! Botanicals or Ohio Botanicals. Both have Excellent Prices with Quality Kratom. My Favorite Vendors as of Late has been Gaia Ethnobotanical & SoCal Herbal Remedies.

I want to give you a warm welcome to the Ilovekratom forums, and encourage you to connect with me, if you need any help whatsoever. I feel pity for individuals such as yourself, with legitimate back pain, and the alternatives are going on pain management, which has a LOT of negative consequences or searching for alternative medication, such as kratom. Which the DEA has claimed has no medicinal value.
Glad to meet you, I hope to hear more from you soon!

Hey HicKori...welcome. About that nasty taste, I wanted to give you a hint that I use. I take it 1/2 tsp at a time, so I pack it down tight into the spoon and then tap it out, WAY back on my tongue. I dont think there are many taste buds back there, It stays in that little lump shape kind of like a pill, and then wash it down with a lot of juice. works like a charm to me. In the beginning I couldnt even dream of toss and wash, but now i can do it even with only water as the wash part. Anyway, hope that helps!
Welcome to ILK Hickori,

Hey HicKori 😛
A warm welcome to ILK from Southern California >:D Glad to see you found ILK
Nice to meet you Hickori :-h Im sure you will find that people here are more than helpful, they have helped answer any questions i have had about kratom. At the moment my all time favorite vendor is Christophers Organic Botanicals, the customer service is awesome, he ships fast and i am very happy with his kratom. He is not the cheapest, but i have never been disappointed with any of the strains i have bought from him, and he sends samples too. 🙂 Ohio Botanicals is good as well and the shipping would probably be two days for u since you are in the same state. Again nice to meet you :-h

Thanks all! I just ordered from OH! Botanicals and the tracking number claims I'm getting my package tomorrow ( ). I bought the same amount of capsules that'll buy from KratomCapsules and it was literally $30 less. Let's see if these capsules are as good (KratomCapsules potency is amazing thought). Menthol, I'm very skittish about showing my YouTube account. Maybe if I've been here long enough, I might give it. It's not that great anyway.
However, I just made a decoy account based on my username here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxlzAYM2CkcIhv53OR48C9w Idk what I want to do with it yet.
