Kratom Experiences and Testimonials
Common Kratom Experiences
Kratom experiences generally fall into one of two categories, or sometimes a mixture of the two. Those two categories are the stimulating experiences and the sedating experiences.
The effects that you feel will be determined by the quality of your Kratom, the type or strain that you take, the dosage amount and personal elements such as body-weight and the amount of food and water you have consumed.
1.) A stimulating Kratom experience can feel similar to having a cup of coffee–even similar to having several cups of coffee but usually without the jittery feeling.
Most people who have had this experience find that while Kratom increases energy levels and stimulates them, they do not feel overwhelmed with excitement. On the contrary, most reports point towards Kratom producing a calming effect and offering what some describe as “mental clarity.”
Kratom experiences of this type often lend well to pro-social behaviors and can offer mood-enhancing qualities as well as decreasing anxiety and nervousness in those who are prone to those types of feelings. It is usually recommended to take a mild to moderate dose to achieve this type of experience.
2.) A sedating Kratom Experience usually requires a larger dose and is very effective at relieving pain. Some claim that it is just as effective and in come cases even more effective than prescription pharmaceuticals for relieving pain. The added benefit is that Kratom does not have nasty side effects like most of the big brand drugs.
Kratom experiences of this type lend well to those users with chronic or acute pain as well as to those who are needing an all natural sleep aid. A sedating Kratom experience is usually very relaxing and is sometimes described as”having a warm blanket thrown over your body.”
As mentioned, many times you will feel a combination of these two effects. Once you have used Kratom for an extended period of time you will understand how your body reacts to it and will be better able to determine how much and of what type you will need to feel your desired outcome.

Kratom is the only thing that helps
I have been suffering pain and nausea from chronic pancreatitis for 7 years. I have tried every prescription drug available with little to no relief. Kratom tinctures and dried leaf powder have been the first thing in about 2 years that have given me relief. It’s not easy but I’m still trying to hold down a job as a computer tech working for the state of Alabama. I’m sick and barely able to move more days than not. Kratom is the first thing that gave me relief without the confusion and brain fog of narcotics. I can say with certainty it doesn’t make you high like morphine or Oxycontin. It leaves you much more alert but still lets you sleep.

Kratom helps me with depression and pain
I am a 35 year old Paralegal and mother of 3 kids. I have actively taken Kratom for over 2 years now. I had a full hysterectomy when I was 28 which put me into early menopause and it seemed from there depression set in. Juggling 3 kids and a full time job all the while going through menopause was a living hell. Doctor’s had prescribed anti-depressants which either never worked or made me a complete zombie. Then I discovered Kratom and I though why not I will give it a try. Kratom keeps me balanced and rational during this rough patch that I am going through and is also very effective when it comes to aches and pain. It has changed my life tremendously and being a natural research fanatic due to my job, I have conducted my own research and can tell you that from what I have discovered, no one has ever overdosed nor died on Kratom alone. I want to thank you for protecting this wonderful plant and hope that this testimonial aids in the fight to keep Kratom legal.

I have struggled with depression, anxiety, stress, and insomnia for years. I discovered kratom about two months ago and honestly this herb has been more helpful than my prescription antidepressants. I cannot believe there are people who spread lies and want this wonderful herb to be banned. I am very happy you guys are involved in the fight to keep kratom legal and I would like to do whatever I can to help.
A Life Enhancement
I’ve suffered from anxiety and OCD since I was a kid, and I recently had a 3 month long ‘episode’. I was depressed, anxious, and had little to no motivation.
Then I came upon the natural herb known as kratom. I decided to try it. Long story short, I have been using it for three months every single day and have completely wiped out my anxiety. You do the math.
I feel more focused. I feel more motivated. I feel happier. I am more productive. I have even started a profitable business in the last couple months–and a good deal of credit goes to kratom.
And guess what? Not one single side effect. Not one. If used properly, tolerance is not an issue, and neither is addiction. I went on vacation for two weeks and stopped taking it. Nothing even resembling ‘withdrawal’.
Kratom is a plant. It is not debilitating. In fact, it enhances your life and helps you improve yourself. No impairment like alcohol, no laziness and sloth like marijuana. Kratom is absolutely a safe and effective herb.
