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?

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.

Hello All,
This is my first post in the CP section of the forum. I am a CP sufferer of 28 years and I acquired a mold sickness that is acting more like Lyme in the last couple years.
I was on various narcotics legally for many of those years. Earlier this year I heard about Kratom and used it to come off of Oxycontin. I couldnt believe how easy it was. I only had mild anxiety during the 2nd day of my transition. My average dose is 7-8 grams two to four times a day.
Kratom is amazing how it supresses pain. I dont feel high on it, just free of pain. I make better decisjons on Kratom and am more grounded with a bit more energy. I prefer Green Maeng Da strain over the rest except at night using this Borneo strain is easier to sleep.
The real crime would be against humanity if it were made illegal. There is no justification for this. It threatens the pain pill and suboxone industry and this is what the DEA will end up defending if they make this illegal.
My prefered vendor is EZ Kratom. I havent cheked to see if they are still vending as I stocked up before the anticipated ban date which has been extended to DECEMBER 2016.
My only issue is increasing tolerance after 14 days and would like to know Better rotation schedules amongst strains or any tips to keep tolerance down.
