In my experience...

Red strains, Bali (in reality grown in Borneo) and Thai should work the best to keep your opioid receptors satisfied. When I was quitting oxycodone the strains I used were "Red Thai Maeng Da" and "Green Malay" (Green Malay had longer duration, gave me more energy, but less classical opioid effects) during the day and "Red Bali" before sleep.

^^^ This sounds about right, in my experience.
Reds tend to put one "down" but opi WDs are handled best
Greens tend to give a balance of pain relief and mood boost
Whites are energetic

Just an opinion based on consuming the plant matter for around three yrs.

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!

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. :)

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.

I just took my first dose ever of Kratom (Red Bali) 20 minutes ago. I’m wondering when it’ll kick in. I got capsules instead of plain powder because I’m not great keeping funny tasting stuff down. I have high hopes!

I use green maeng da . I like it because it gives energy , mood boost and is relaxing . I used it to get off about 40-60 mg oxy a day . Such a life saver , my local gas station even carries it and I liked it better than online vendors I have tried . It’s so nice to be able to buy legally at a good price . Don’t try to take too much because you will throw up ! It really helps with withdrawing, it was pretty much painless , took away the rls and I slept every night . I mix it in lemon iced tea . Takes some getting used to , it is gross . Prob takes longer to kick in with capsules.

How much did ya take and are ya feeling anything yet?
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.
Any advice re: correct dosage based on my current Oxy use, and/or any general Kratom advice would be greatly appreciated 😍

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...

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.
3-5 grams should help keep the worst of the WDs at bay. I
Eating with kratom will slow the effects but prolong them. It will also *hit faster if ya pour the powder out of the capsules and put it in some warm water to mix easier. Just enough to shoot down in one gulp. Drink plenty of water as this will help the effects greatly, IME.
Glad it is working for ya!
;)

Well it’s 5:18am and I’m still up. I added some CBD to my gabapentins, benedryl and baclofens last night in the hopes of getting some sleep but no such luck. No RLS, just no sleep once again.

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.
For me kratom peaks at about 45min-1h and food doesn't really decrease the effects, just maybe wait about 30min before eating.
