Kratom Withdrawals – What Are They?
I have been taken kratom for about 2 years now and have NEVER had any withdrawals. And If I do I will share them Immedietly, a kratom powder withdrawal would resemble a mild flu, and possible some mild anxiety, so I will update this post as soon as I have more personal experience with this subject.
The reason why I am creating this post is because I am reading a lot on the internet about people with MAJOR withdrawals and I would like to show you how to avoid this, because it does not sound pleasant.
Kratom and withdrawals only occur when one is taking a large amount of kratom daily and this is making his body want it more and more. Once he has taken it away his body goes into withdrawals.
Don’t worry though, if you follow the kratom guide and the dosage guide found on kratombible.com (meaning your doing exactly what I am doing and have done) than you will most likely fall into the same category of withdrawals as me, none.
Unfortunaltley people are not aware and get hooked onto extracts and CANT stop. Also the withdrawal effect from a high kratom dosage lifestyle may resemble that of an opiate withdrawal (probably not as intense as heroin but you will feel like you have a slight cold)
What Causes kratom withdrawals?
Why would someone, knowingly take more kratom if they know that it has a high tolerance, and risk of side effects.
Well one main reason is someone is NOT very well instructed on kratom and doesn’t know what the stuff is and how to use it properly.
Another main reason is that they received a sample pack of extracts and or enhanced leaves and decided to try it, unknowingly saying goodbye to the kratom powder effects.
Your brain has nerve receptor cells inside of you that are programmed from birth in a certain way. When you add an enormous amount of something that alters them (or attatches to the receptors in kratoms case) they will eventually change and have a new way of working because of the new component.
When your tolerance is heightened due to lack of rotating strains, and or extracts/enhanced leaf use, than you have to introduce these receptors with more, making it that much harder for them to leave you alone when you take away there new found friends(the kratom extract).
Phenibut is known to take away kratom withdrawals.. I found valuable info at KratomInfo about this topic.
Shawn, the author of KratomInfo is a very knowledgable person and like Kratombible, runs purely on experienced based information.
If someone writes articles without experience, it is hard to give you a genuine perspective on the plant and could steer you wrong.
KratomInfo’s Withdrawal Information is a valuable source if you need someone who has experienced withdrawals, make sure to read all as to not get the wrong idea. As I have mentioned, I haven’t experienced one to date.
What To Do If You Started With Kratom Extracts?
If you are now unfortunaltley hooked onto kratom extracts/enhanced leafs than I am afraid you will have to tapper off, to eventually nothing. This will not take away all withdrawals (I wouldn’t think) BUT you will feel them less severly.
After you have done this you can consider trying my recommended vendors Phenibut, which is somewhat like kratom and can help with the withdrawals.(note you should only take phenibut for kratom withdrawals when you have been taking a lot of kratom and feel like you will probably withdraw i.e 20 grams a day would be a lot.
Treatment Opioid Withdrawal
Maybe if after you have done tapering off kratom extracts/enhanced leaf for about a week (or however long it takes you to get to 0 grams) than introduce the S&V for one week to 10 days.
After you have washed out the kratom and have been on only the S&V for one whole week, introduce Phenibut to make your withdrawals all that less noticeable.
Because I have never witnessed this amount of withdrawals I cannot say EXACTLY what to do. I always order from Botanical Kratom (since I found them) and they do not sell extracts/enhanced leaf for the sole fact that they believe kratom to be an EXTREMELY beneficial plant, and if people suffer from taking it, how is that beneficial. STICK TO THE POWDERED LEAF!!!!
If you feel way to bad for your withdrawals than take phenibut but make sure you FOLLOW THE LABELS ON PHENIBUt, unlike kratom, phenibut DOES CAUSE WITHDRAWALS AND IT DOES NOT TAKE ALOT TO START THEM!
Check out this site that talks about opioid withdrawals which was created by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (note they talk about Rx [which means a prescription medication] and using that to help with opioid withdrawals) which could help you to do this.
(although they have a weird part about you dieing in your sleep which I found pretty stressful! But I guess this is if you use all the drugs that they suggest together, I would see a doctor if attempting this method)
Be cautious when doing this as you may relapse and have all these things inside of you at once.
Considering phenibut you will only take a max of 2 grams upon awakening and than taper off of your normal dose by half or 1/4 of your usual dose
I.e if your use to 4 in the morning take 2 or 3 grams, this will allow your body to notice you taking the kratom away.
Since I have not ever tried this make sure to note this and share with the community here on how you were able to get off kratom extracts/enhanced leaf and stop taking kratom, or now use the powder.
Also, if you start to feel weird IN ANY WAY while your attempting this GO TO THE DOCTOR OR CALL 911 because something maybe wrong and a doctor will be able to further assist you in this, he will unfortunatley prescribe you with medication BUT, take as directed no more and for no longer, than when you can revert back to this posts explanation AND NEVER TAKE EXTRACTS AGAIN.
See where to buy kratom from a reputable vendor where you will not get addicted to their powder. The kratom is 100% clean and amazingly potent, and most importantly PLAIN KRATOM POWDER IS ALL THEY SELL!!!.
