I'm doing about 5 grams of Red Sumatra every 4hrs for Fent wd and i was surprised at how I feel comfortable. I don't mind the mild sedation as I'm naturally anxious.
Is another red better? I'm new at this and totally open to suggestions!
Thank you for putting so much thought into your response! I've got Lupus and it's pretty serious, but I would like to try an alternative to Fent. This would be ideal. I'm going to look at the site tonight and order what you said. And if it doesn't work i will hold you responsible jk jk No i understand it is very much a person to person thing. I do like the opiod receptor qualities you described. Why lie? I love the feeling of opiates. Its sweet pain relief. But if a plant can almost imitate it, I'm down.Regarding strains it all depends on personal taste/response and the actual leaf behind the strain name which is dependent on the source from which you are buying. Personally I found Sumatra Red to be inferior to the other red strains I tried. One being Red Thai (Maeng Da) and other Red Bali. Actualy, for oxycodone withdrawal ( daily tolerance of 120mg+, just not to be in withdrawal) my favorite strain during the day was Green Malay. But I would suspect that for the fentanyl (never tried fent so I am guessing) would be one of the more potent red ones. Two I mentioned were best for me. Red Thai Maeng Da was more energetic but still very much opioid like (think of it like oxycodone in full opioid agonist land) and Red Bali was more sedating (following analogy, think of more morphine like). Forget about white strains if you are after opioid effects.
Hope that helps a bit, but I must say again that the actual effects are different from vendor to vendor and am speaking from personal experience.
Hope you kick that Fent off your back. Kratom comes with its own set of troubles but comparably to fentanyl (or even oral oxycodone/morphine) it is a great leap into the right direction.
Well I had to take more after I realized 1000mg = 1 gram. I was thinking 100mg = 1 gram. So I just dosed myself up to 3 grams about 22 mins ago. Nothing yet but I’ve been on a minimum of 60mg of Oxycodone daily for years now. I’m going to run out of Oxys before I can get a refill so I’m hoping this helps. BTW, I’ve made a point of not eating anything for the past few hours in case food inhibits the full absorption of Kratom.How much did ya take and are ya feeling anything yet?
This is about all one can expect from kratom. This "pleasant" feeling is what helps one get off other drugs... just enough to not go through hellish WDs. Do not expect too much as it is subtle but effective regarding WDs.I feel pleasant. But that is all. Do I need to dose up
You might need more than 3g if you're going through opioid WD. You could try 4-5g at once, that might help you sleep a bit. Some people need even more for acute WD.Update: it’s been almost an hour since I took the 3 grams of Red Bali and I feel pleasant. But that is all. Do I need to dose up a bit or could the Kratom Peak be just around the corner, in terms of minutes? I took capsules which may have affected the response time...
