Dizziness

Just wondering there are sometimes when I haven’t been eating all day (intermittent fasting) and then have K and then eat dinner. I find that I sometimes get the shakes and sweats. I then noticed the only thing that helps it is if I drink more water and I’m beginning to think it is a dehydration issue. Just wondering if anybody else has experienced that.

Extract

I have a bottle of ALK tab 40 from Joey’s favorite Krabot. I was wondering if there’s anybody that could give me an approximate conversion of how much each tab equates to in powdered leaf. Ps I let them know that Joey referred me.

About anxiety

How do I get the most anxiety/panic relief out of the kratoms? Best strains, best doses or whatever can come closest to feeling like Xanax?

20 Minute Consult

Hey Joey, I was on the fence about the paid membership plan, when I saw the opportunity for a consult with you. I jumped on it. I am looking forward to sharing my mental health journey and my current protocol with you for feedback. How would I go about scheduling this with you? Best, Tory

Kidney/liver pain with Kratom

Hi Joey and everyone. I love Kratom, it has changed my life for the better. This is my 3rd year of use and I don't use much I think. Somewhere around 2-3 grams a day, I taper/go cold for a month+, sometimes I can take as much as 15 grams a day but that happens maybe 2-3 times a month when I use it heavily, taking 5-10 grams a day periods. I have pain in my kidneys/liver area with use though. Sometimes it can be a strong dull ache. Hydration helps, but I am worried I am doing long term damage to my kidneys somehow. I have been repeatedly tested for damage and the doctors can't find anything. They do scans for kidney stones and don't find any. I don't understand what's going on. I don't see any research on this, but I do see users of kratom sometimes experience this effect. Any ideas as to what is going on or what to do about it?

Do you up your dose through out the day?

Reading your book and watching your videos it looks like you take the same dose in your morning, afternoon and evening routine. Have you ever thought about increasing the dose as the day goes by? I feel like 2 grams in the morning works well for me but on my second dose in the afternoon 2 grams doesn't really work as well as it did in the morning. Is it wise to up the dose each time you take it or do you recommend to always take the same amount through out the day.

Kratom and weight/hormones

Hi all, relatively new kratom user here. I was wondering if anyone had experience with weight loss (intentional or not) in regards to their kratom use. There are anecdotal reports online of low testosterone as a result of kratom use and atleast one case study of a male experiencing high prolactin due to kratom. I am a male on TRT (testosterone replacement therapy) and actively involved in bodybuilding. Again, I have heard online of people struggling with unintentional weight loss after long term kratom use and have lost some weight myself over the past few months and wondered if anyone had any tips to manage endocrine/weight issues; or if my concerns are even legit. Cheers, Nate.

Kratom & The Immune system

Can long term use of Kratom affect your immune system? I noticed when I add alcohol usage I catch all kinds of viruses. Shingles in 2021. Tonsillitis in 2022 and most recently a prolonged cold or flu. Like clockwork, illness seems to come after heavy or continuous days of alcohol consumption. I have all the flu, pneumonia, COVID vaccines. Definitely not a coincidence. I’m going to take some time off from Kratom dosing for awhile to see if I can build up my immune system. Waddya think? Thanks

Finding kratom in Cozumel Mexico

Hi Joey. Just curious if you have any knowledge on where one might find Kratom to purchase in Cozumel. I’m on a cruise ship docked here and I could run out before I get back home. I did my research and it is legal in Mexico. Any suggestions on where to locate it? I’m thinking about finding a local head shop. I doubt a pharmacy would have kratom. Thanks for your thoughts on this.

Have you tried the Krabot Flavored Stick Packs?

Have you tried the Nutraspec Kratom stick packs from Krabot? Im going to do a little traveling this weekend and I ordered some and looking foreword to trying it. Im going to be coming off of my taper tomorrow and was wondering if you can compare how many grams of regular Kratom equals to one of these stick packs. Since my tolerance should be lower I don't want to chug a glass of this stuff and get hit too hard.

Taper off extracts UGG!

hOW THE HECK DO i DO THIS?? I want to get my "feels" back. I feel like I'm living for K and it's making me very unhappy. I was at 4-5 opms caps per day, down to 2 caps and 2 alk 40 tabs per day. I'm not sure where to go from here? I know I just need get off the extracts and back to just powder but man getting there is HARD! And what do you think the ratio comparing opms gold to alk 40 tabs is? Like 2 tabs would equal 1 opms cap? I'm just trying to plan my taper. Can you help me? I am a paid member ;) Thanks J!

Amount of Kratom

I found Kratom approximately 1 year ago, at our local smoke shop. Dude recommended I start off with 10 capsules. I did, and have been increasing. With that said, ordered from Tusk, now onto Kabot , which is the best! So thank you for that! I take the capsules in the am, with coffee… I usually take 10-15 . What’s your thoughts on the amount? I’m maybe getting a little concerned, but I’ve been watching you, and trying to figure out if I’m on the high end, or low??? Thanks for sharing! Love ya
