Made me not feel the WDs to the degree that I otherwise would have felt. After tossing back a metric ton of it back in the day, and being grateful for having it, I never really felt much beyond that in terms of euphoria. But that is exactly what I needed it to do and it worked. Thankfully. I consider it a lifesaver in many ways.

I hear turmeric has a very good synergy with kratom. How much and how long should I wait until I take kratom after the turmeric. I have Bali capsules. I realize this an old thread but curious.

For me it depends on strength and tolerance.

When tolerance's higher than maybe what would you make still feel good from 60mg morphine, then the off-targets like dopamine D2 antagonism and serotonergic antagonism become more pronounced and overshadow the opioidergic effects, it becomes a dysphoria inducing something. Extracts can push this a little further but I find kratom to be self-limiting (I also hate antipsychotics, guess it's connected). Without tolerance at low dosages it's like the smooth big brother of coffee. When taking a high dosage one can nod on it but it's not pleasant (again the D2 I guess). In-between it's quite like a non-sedating methadone mixed with a little coffee I'd say - kratom and the coffee plant are relatives btw.

Kratom contains more than 39 active alkaloids, most of them only in insignificant amounts apparently but this will change with dosage. I found also different strains to be similar and/or quite different without finding any clear logic based on what they sell it for - some say they invent the labels at will and just ship what they have. Which might be true.
