Herb of the Gods
Kratom & Tea

10 g oral Kratom (ground / crushed)
  1 cup oral Tea  
After being addicted to codeine/opiates for around a year & going through awful PAWS for a few months, I decided that Kratom would be a useful herb to try to mitigate some of the anxiety/depression that came along with PAWS. I frequently smoked cannabis to help alleviate some of the symptoms but it wasn't working very well and often just made me apathetic and zombie-like.

I decided to purchase some Maeng Da Kratom, red vein, as I read that its most opiate-like with its sedative effects vs some of the alternatives.

0:00 Measured out 10gs of Kratom and mixed it into some black tea, not really knowing what effects to expect.

0:20 A warm, soft glow started to emulate from the core of my body, it felt almost exactly like codeine in its physical euphoria, I didn't notice much cognitive euphoria quite yet. Still feeling quite low, but the comfort and warmth definitely got me excited for what was about to come.

0:40 By now I was feeling the full effects, or what I thought to be the full effects at the time. I felt very stimulated and sedated at the same time, in a contradictory fashion

, it felt like I could easily do a workout, or go to sleep. It was a very strange feeling to have stimulation and sedation simultaneously. The cognitive euphoria was starting to wash over me in waves, it actually felt quite like the first time I tried MDMA, the waves of comfort and warmth were beautiful.

1:20 Still feeling strong emotional effects and lots of energy, I decided to do a workout. Since this drug is an analgesic, I imagine I would feel almost no pain doing my typical workout. I did weighed pull-ups, push-ups, and bench press. I felt literally no pain or discomfort while working out. The only way I knew when to stop is when my arms started shaking. I feel like this substance is amazing for working out and/or doing any physical activity, it massively increases endurance.

1:40 After my workout I decided to get some rest & listen to some music. The music sounded unbelievably beautiful, it felt like a MDMA high with the feelings of love that I was experiencing as the music played. This really was a wonderful experience so far.

2:30 The effects were calming down, I continued to listen to music and play some chess. I noticed that my vision was slightly 'jiggly' and blurry, it was often more comfortable not to move my eyes at all and just stare at the center of the screen.

4:00 Most of the physical euphoria has subsided by now, however my mood was really good. I felt like I was experiencing somewhat of an afterglow. It was a beautiful feeling.

As for the rest of the day, I went out to socialize with some friends that I hadn't bothered seeing at all during PAWS (I had no urge to communicate with people at all on a normal day). I had an amazing day. This drug is a godsend. It boosted my mood a lot, has strong emotional and physical euphoria, and left me with a blissful afterglow for the entire day.

Overall I'd like to rate this substance 9/10. My new favourite by a long shot, it helps with so many things at once.
