Does anyone have any experience using kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) for pain? I have used it several times over the past year and was wondering if anyone else could share their experiences with it. I have been considering ordering some for treatment of my pain as a result of lyme disease and coinfections.

Here is a quote from a webpage about kratom so you guys can get a general idea of what it is:

"Kratom is a tree native to Southeast Asia (Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar [Burma], and elsewhere). Its botanical name is Mitragyna speciosa. Kratom is in the same family as the coffee tree (Rubiaceae). The leaves of kratom have been used as an herbal drug from time immemorial by peoples of Southeast Asia. It is used in folk medicine as a stimulant (at low doses), sedative (at high doses), recreational drug, pain killer, medicine for diarrhea, and treatment for opiate addiction."

There are many websites that sell this herb online and it is completely legal in the United States and most countries. Let me know what you guys think.

You can also try Dragon's Blood from South America. I couldn't take it, I had an allergic reaction, but that's rare. My husband swears by it, but he's from Ecuador and it's widely used there. Finding the right stuff can be hard, his mother gets it for him.

I have tried dragon's blood before. Kratom is exponentially superior in analgesia and overall effectiveness. I usually buy "bali" or "thai" strains and take 3-4 grams at a time mixed with some juice. The quality seems to vary a lot between vendors and I have yet to find one that consistently offers low prices and an effective product. Dependence is not as severe as traditional opiates and it allows you to think clearly while on it.

I was wondering if anyone uses this for chronic pain and if there is a reliable place to order from?

Arenaethnobotanicals.com or arenaeb.com has high quality Kratom capsules (as well as other forms) at a great price with fast shipping and excellent customer service (people that actually answer the phone). I ordered mine on Wednesday and received them on Friday all the way from California to North Carolina, and that was just with the $3 flat rate ground shipping. I love this company.
