A little background check here, I am a 105-115 lb. female, about 5.1 ft. tall. I have experience with other opiates, Hydrocodone and Codeine being the ones I have most experience with. I found Kratom because I was tired of the legal troubles regarding vendors, and other sketchy shit associated with illegal drugs. While I miss them, I am enjoying the relief of not having to worry about getting caught anymore.
I ordered a 100g pack of Red Vein Bali, a strain that's most notable for its 'opiate-like' effects. I was quite skeptical that Kratom could be an actual, euphoric alternative to opiates. I had even tried Red Maeng Da from a trusted vendor, and was actually quite discouraged and disheartened when I didn't get the desired effect, even at different doses.
It was about 6:00 p.m. in the evening when I brewed my cup of Kratom. I had a completely empty stomach, so as to have the purest experience possible with this drug. I squeezed some lemon juice from a small lemon slice into my work, which I read could potentiate the effects and make it taste a little more edible. Gradually, over the course of about 45 minutes, I drank it.
6:10 - I start to feel a little more talkative, ideas seem to flow and I feel more confident while speaking with my mother. At this point, I've only taken about 1/8th of the glass, and I am highly pleased with the drug being active so early on.
6:25 - A relaxed feeling washes over me as I drink about 1/4th of the cup. I feel calm, almost worry-free, akin to drinking some chamomile on a cold winter's day. I get to about half the cup, and I go to my computer desk and shut the door to my room.
6:45 - I've finished it now. I start to feel a little itchy, something I'm used to by now with opiates. I start feeling a mild warmth creep over me, starting from my belly with mild nausea, then to my chest and to my arms. The cold air from my fan doesn't seem to be effecting me anymore.
6:50 - I pinch myself to make sure it's working. It is. I put on my earbuds and begin listening to some early 1970's Fleetwood Mac.
7:10 - I feel pretty euphoric, very content, and very warm. It's more intense than a 120 mg Codeine high but less intense than a 20 mg Hydrocodone high. It's a fuzzy, warm euphoria that is similar to other opiates I've used. It's far less tranquilizing and hypnotic though. I still feel very alert.
At this point, I can say I have peaked and the effects didn't intensify. I felt a surge of apathetic euphoria all throughout my body. I was amazed that I could experience this legally, at such a good price. Music sounded very nice, as it does with all opiates.
9:30 - The peak effects begin to subside, but I still feel a glow of warmth surrounding my body in that cozy blanket. I now feel incredibly hungry, and so I fix myself a frozen cheese pizza.
12:30 - I still feel the glow from earlier, but it's mostly subsided and disappeared. I am now left with a relaxed, content feeling. Sleep will be easy tonight.
Over all, I would rate the experience 7/10. For the price, it's worth it. And best of all, there will be no legal problems involved. The only problem I had was getting the vile liquid down. But it's not bad after doing it a few times. I learned that it's worth it. It was, all in all, a great experience and I will most likely dose again in the next few days.
