my Kratom has been decimated

my Kratom has been decimated by freezes. The majority of them all took a hard hit. But I'm not too concerned about it. One thing I've learned about Kratom is it as quite resilient.

Question: What happens if I 't

Question: What happens if I 'top' my kratom plant short?

 Answer:  You'll possibly get a double trunked bushy kratom.... and during the summer, it will even have lots of leaves too! a nice thick bush. Easier for me to pick leaves from 😀

         Are kratom leaves like tangerines?

  Has anybody try old reddish lightly frosted leaves? Reds are associated with potency of mitragynines in kratom. The veins get redder as they get older, and mitragynines  accumulate in them from the stems. Well, tangerines get sweeter as the cold weather drives remaining sugars from the roots and stems into the fruit.  

  Time for an experiment to see. Tea time at 4:20 pm. .....

   let's try reddish mature leaves vs. regular red... veined ones....  (to be cont'd)

I tried the tea this morning and to cut the bitterness I mixed it with hot cocoa mix. It turned out really good and not too sweet, not too bitter.

I have decided doing the smoothie works ok, but I found today ended up with better results.

Instead of doing two in the morning and two in the afternoon, I did three in the morning with none in the afternoon.

The effect was a stronger morning and by 1-2pm I was starting to feel the pain. However, I was able to maintain until 4pm when I got home.

I thought about taking another two but I am not going to waste it since I'm home and not moving around as much.

Another thing I noticed was the leaves are starting to wilt. As I said, I put them in the crisper of the frig which allowed them a fairly good life.


Changing the number of leaves and when I took them changed my BPM and blood pressure, which was down two more points.

I still had a good night sleeping, but woke up at 5:30. However, I was really relaxed and didn't need to get up and was able to fall back asleep, which I NEVER do because I'm usually so restless.

I am impressed with several things about the Kratom.

I have noticed that my resting heart rate is 4 beats slower per minute. My blood pressure is lower by 10 points, my sleep patterns have improved. I am sleeping 7-8 hours, rather than 5-6. I am no longer restless during sleep, I sleep deeper and I do not toss as much.

I have a device in my room (part of a Kickstarter campaign) which monitors my movements using a sensor on my pillow, and a sensor to pick up on any sounds or movement. My number of movements are down to 8, previously 20. Also, the sensor has told me that the amount of noise I make has lowered by 20%. The number of "sleep starts" is down to 2. In fact, I only can recall 1 of them from last night. Normally when I wake up from a sleep start I never really go back to bed. Since I've started using Kratom, I always go back to sleep.

I have noticed that I feel more refreshed in the mornings. I have noticed a reduction in my appetite, not that I am starving myself, but the need to snack in between meals is lower. No weight loss worth mentioning.

The pain level varied the first few days. I tried 1 leaf the first day and I had good results but it was short lived. I then took 2 leaves and it sustained me for the rest of the day.

The following days I did two leaves, which was OK, but I had pain return before I went home from work which was a 4 hour window.

The last two days I've used three leaves in a smoothie, with fruit and veggies. I deveined them, blended them, then used a strainer to filter the fiber. The main relief was very good and there was a minor burst of energy.

I've actually been debating going on a short run, which I haven't had a desire to do for twenty years. Although, I think I'll start with walking and work my way up.

hi folks I just received three rooted cuttings. Is there any reference info I can use to get these to grow healthy? I’m in south Florida.

Thanks!

This dude was catching some rays next to a couple of my kratom plants earlier today. 

Then he found a dried red kali leaf and started munching. 

Gotta love them Florida Kratom Lizards.

Anybody ever need the 'nuclear

Anybody ever need the 'nuclear' option in 'laxatives'? Not technically a laxative,  but un-paralyzes the intestines that get slowed due to the kratom in the gut.

This came in handy,  but is rx only,  but counteracts the Kratom's effects to slow down the peristalsis of the colon, but still advised to use soluble fiber products,  like fiber gummies🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲
