Some positive response to Kratom

I have been testing Kratom and respond well, it helps with pain (muscle and joint) and takes away some of the fatigue. I typically take 4g in the morning and 3g later in the day. There are a few other stories of some success on this forum.

Combining it with around 20mg of CBD seems to help reduce fatigue.

It's not a cure but definitely one of the rare things that helps me, and is worth trying imo.

Green ma deng, green sumatra, red bali, stem&vein. They all feel the same to me.

I know someone who did major damage to her liver with kratom for chronic pain. Be careful.
Yes there is a very rare but serious potential for liver damage if your body cannot detox some of the enzymes in kratom, so people should not treat kratom as a 100% safe plant.
