I will give it a shot in the am. I'm well aware of the science behind it and the inhibition of the enzyme (cyp2d6) that breaks mytrag down, that same enzyme is used to break down a lot of different medications and it's why so many different medicines warn against drinking gpfj prior to taking but I've never done it because I used to doubt it's efficacy and gpfj isn't the greatest thing (taste Wise) to me but I'll definitely try it soon. How much gpfj do you recommend? Honestly I'm not a fan of gpfj but I'll try it and let you know. I do think I tried it once years back but didn't put enough time between the medication and the gpfj. Regardless I'll try it in the morning prior to my morning routine. Btw I'd guess my dose of leaves on average day will be approximately 10-15 leaves. This is just a guess because today was not very average given I'm conserving because it got here so late. 2 definitely stops withdrawals which says a lot to me and 4 seems to be a decent dose for me as I've eaten 7 and don't feel any different than I did with 4.
I really feel like I hit a ceiling with kratom where more is not helping. I'll definitely let you know about the gpfj. Idk if that is just me or if it's because of my tolerance to opioids but regardless I wish someone had told me about that wall earlier because it's generally atypical with opioids. For me it's a good thing because in my head it seems so much simpler to taper from 4 leaves 3x daily than 10 capsules-12 capsules 3x daily. Maybe that's just me but all around I much prefer the fresh kratom to dried.
I think potency is close but drinking that much powdered kratom gets old and constantly doing the teas do too for me. I find it odd the little caveats with kratom where switching strain for some reduces tolerance. This is something I noticed myself accidentally. Didn't consider it I just went for what had the highest 7-hm in lab tests not even considering other non isolated alkaloids. I really don't know as much science behind kratom as I normally would with something like this because I know there's more to it than just the known alkaloids. Either by way of how they act or another non isolated alkaloid because kratom stops withdrawals where other stronger opioids do not. So for me I know something else is at play either due to a lack of understanding or other non isolated or not as well talked about alkaloids. I could be wrong and imagined all of it but I really don't think so. I know myself well and when I took kratom I really didn't have any faith in it working. It showed me.
At the end of the day kratom does what I want it to and it's been nothing but beneficial for me. Outside of the fact I don't have a tree in my backyard I think it's a wonderful plant and you all are doing an awesome job providing fresh kratom in the us market. I'll message you and do the review I've been jumping between texts and this app.
