My First Kratom Experience Today!
Well, after much debating and stalling, I finally got up the nerve to try the Red Bali kratom I had ordered from the folks at Top Extracts.
I made it into a tea because I figured it would go down smoother and less nasty that way.
I made two small bottles. One with just 2 grams of the Red Bali
Another bottle with 3 grams.
Please keep in mind, I am a person already on a narcotic pain medication (vicodin) for a chronic pain condition, but my Doctor refuses to increase my dose to help me with the pain I get later in the day once my medication has all been taken and the pain rears it's ugly head.
I waited till I was sitting with an empty stomach and hadn't taken my vicodin for a few hours.
I started with the 2 gram bottle and drank slowly, writing down the time I started drinking it to keep an eye on how long it would take to feel anything.
After 30 minutes, I wasn't feeling much, so I opened up the bottle of 3grams kratom tea and began drinking that, but
decided to only drink half the bottle no matter what I was feeling since it was my first time and I didn't want to over-do it.
Well, sure enough after about another 20 minutes I definitely was feeling more "relaxed", "chill" would be the best way to describe it. And it was definitely knocking my pain out.
However, it was purely sedating in it's effects. I didn't feel any "euphoria" or "mental alertness" as I've heard Red Bali often described.
It's definitely good stuff...and I would use it for late date/early evening use when I'm not planing on doing much but relaxing to go to bed soon.
But I was interested in mixing some White Borneo or White Maeng Da with the Red Bali so that It might provide me with a little kick of "mental stimulation".
I don't want to be jittery, But I'm looking for something that will give me a little more "get up and lets get stuff done" effect, that will blend nicely with a Red strain like the Red Bali I took.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
I plan to be very careful and am looking to see if I can ease myself off the Vicodin with Kratom, but I need to see if it can provide a similar effect in both pain killing quality, and the little "energy kick/euphoria" that Vicodin gives. Because as nice as the Red Bali alone is for pain and relaxation, it does make me feel a little "spaced out"
Thank you in advance for any suggestions 🙂
