Kratom Withdrawal Remedy

Kratom for Withdrawal 101

The Ultimate Guide to Kratom for Opiate Withdrawal Relief

I’ve received quite a few questions from readers about kratom, so let’s dispel all the myths and let me tell you what its all about. Lets start with the basics:

What is Kratom?

Kratom ( Mitragyna speciosa ) is a leaf harvested from a large tree native to Southeast Asia. It is in the same family as the coffee tree. Although using Kratom is common wherever it grows throughout Southeast Asia, this amazing plant remained virtually unknown outside of that area until the last few years.

Kratom is structurally related to yohimbine, but the pharmacology is quite different. It contains many alkaloids that we are just now beginning to be understand the effects. Kratom has proven a remedy for acute opiate withdrawal pain for many people.

Why is kratom recommend for opiate withdrawal?

Simply put, Kratom can be used to ease opiate withdrawal pain. That’s the reason I’ve written the Kratom for opiate withdrawal guide, to answers the most common questions for using it as tool for opiate withdrawal pain relief.

Withdrawal symptoms kratom can help relieve:

    [list type=”arrow”]

  • opiate cravings
  • muscle and body aches
  • restless leg syndrome (RLS)
  • fever and sweats
  • poor mood and attitude
  • low energy and lethargy[/list]

What are the effects of consuming kratom?

When consumed orally or chewed in leaf form its effects have been described as less intense but similar to the feeling of opioids. Kratom is described as stimulating at lower doses and more sedating at higher doses. Most would agree is far less powerful than opiate and far less additive.

The trick to kratom is to use it only long enough to get you through opiate withdrawal without relapsing. Use as tool to deal with extreme narcotic withdrawal discomfort. Because it help you manage withdrawal pain and make it through the worst 3, 4 or 5 days. Be sure you only use it for 1 -2 weeks max because it can create dependency and that’s the last thing we want.

What types of Kratom are there? 

There are a number of different kinds, but common Kratom strains includes:

[list type=”tick”][li]Maeng Da Kratom[/li] [li]Bali Kratom[/li] [li]Malaysian Kratom[/li] [li]Borneo Kratom[/li] [li]Thai Kratom[/li] [li]Green Vein Kratom[/li] [li]Indonesian Kratom[/li] [/list]

Kratom comes in these common forms: [list type=”bullet”]

  • powders – stems and leaves ground into a powder form. This is the most common form online retailers sell.
  • leaves – leaves can be chewed when taken from tree.
  • tincture – It can be melted and extracted into a tincture.
  • extract – To enhance the strenght of it, so one does not have to take too much, you can make an extraction so less is more.
  • pills – many people don’t like the taste of kratom powder so they cap it. [/list]

How to use Kratom for opiate withdrawal symptoms

How much Kratom should I take?

You should use kratom as a tool for the hardest times of opiate withdrawal. Use it so that you don’t relapse when your hurt the most. It’s a medicine to help you through your most painful times and then stop when your withdrawals ease off. It can be additive.

Kratom dosing instructions:

Kratom dosing varys by your height, weight, sex, age and experience. It’s really hard for anyone to tell anyone how much to take. As you should do with everything, always test small to start. You could try 1 – 3 powdered grams and see how it affects you. People also take it on an empty stomach. Then you can adjust your dosage up or down as needed.

What physical side-effects are associated with taking Kratom?

[list type=”bullet”]

[li]upset stomach[/li]

[li]hot / cold flushing[/li]


[li]sleep when taken in higher doses[/li]

[li]dependence[/li] [/list]

Popular ways to take Kratom include:

Kratom toss and wash – This is when you take however much kratom you want to take and throw it in the back of your throat, then wash it down with juice or a beverage of your choice.

Kratom milk shake method – Get a small bottle of chocolate milk and dump your dose of kratom in the milk and shake. This mixes well with kratom while a number of other liquids don’t mix very well.

Kratom tea – Kratom tea is another very popular way to consume. Most people put their desired kratom in water and squeez a fresh lemon into it. Then boil for 20 minutes on med-low. After which strain the kratom and consume the liquid.

Kratom capsules – You can also cap your kratom and then just swallow the capsules so you don’t have to taste it.

I recommend buying Kratom from Bouncing Bear Botanicals. Their kratom is very high quality and they have a large selection. Their shipping is also very fast and customer service is fast to reply too.

  1. Thanks for this info i had never heard of Kratom. Its has helped me on so many levels. I have been taking it in low doses through out the day with little to no side effects of opiate withdraw. It has also helped with the back pain that has been controlling my life.

  2. Are there any herbal supplement stores that sell this OtC or can it only be purchased on the web? I have one day left of my opiates and am prepar to go through my final withdraw. I want my opiate free life back bu. need to be able to have something to avoid the withdraw fast!!

      Hi Amanda, good question. It really just depends where you live. You can start by looking for these supplements at vitamin & herbal shoppes, supplement businesses or even alternative medicine type stores.

  3. Thank you for this site, I am wanting to kick a 3 year habit of poppy seed tea using kratom, tomorrow morning will be 24 hours since my last dose of pst. I have 100 grams of the red vein kratom, and plan to use it as needed along with imodium, how much and how long do you think I should take kratom? I do not want to get addicted to the kartom so if I used it for say, 7 days, would that be long enough to get past the withdrawals and not get addicted to the kratom? Any info will be appreciated.

    1. I never got an answer but just wanted to share this with anyone wanting to kick a poppy seed tea addiction, it has now been 3 1/2 days since I last had poppy seed tea. I have used kratom and imodium as needed. I have never been able to go longer then 24 hours without tea due to withdrawals, the kratom and imodium have helped. Im not saying I feel great, but I am able to sleep , I have had terrible diarrhea and some vomiting, but I think the vomiting was due to too much kratom. I am a weak person and hate being uncomfortable but I know I want to be clean more then I want to be high. If I can do this after more then 3 years taking poppy seed tea and anything else I could get my hands on anyone can. Give kratomt try

  4. After being on opiates for 3 years and then suboxen for 2 years I have been unsuccessful in quitting. I started taking opiates to relieve my RLS which was ruining my life. I had tried everything for it you can imagine. After hurting my wrist I was given opiates for the pain. My RLS vanished over night. I was a new man. I could sleep, I could ride in a car, I could finally sit still. My mind was sharp because I was finally getting sleep. When my doctor decided to take me off of them I lied and said my wrist pain was so bad I couldn’t work. So in a way I was walking a thin line. Taking them legally but having to lie to get them. After seeing the damage opiates had been doing to people I said “I need to stop this” and flushed a months worth of pills down the toilet. Biggest mistake of my life. The withdrawals were so bad I thought of killing myself. I started buying off the street for a week or two to tapper down. I failed at this. I then went to a suboxen clinic which after doing my research the clinic had me on suboxen for too long at too high of a dose. I tried to quit again. FAIL! I always said “if I could just get over the RLS I could beat this.” Kratom is nothing short of a miracle. I am on day 10 now and although I have some depression (we just learned my mother-in-law is dying of cancer and has 6 months to live). I am doing ok considering. My appetite is not there but I think that is more from nerves than anything. I have to say, I didn’t believe all the hype about Kratom but it works. It is more like suboxen or subutex to me. It just gets rid of the withdrawals. Trust me people. Try this. You won’t regret it. When I make it to the one month mark I plan on contacting people from the suboxen group I used to go to and inform them of this miracle plant.

  5. I have taken opiates for 11yrs due to numerous orthopedic conditions. I am grateful that I had medical help vis the pain meds. But very tired of being treated like a drug seeker. These days EVERYONE is treated this way by the medical community. Its happened to my friendsfamily. This is because of the idiots out there takin them illegally just to get high. I wont go into all that now. Just want to assure people that kratom really does help! Its amazing. I decided to keep my dignity and chuck the pain meds. Of course I tried kratom weeks before I ran out of pain meds. I took time off fully expecting hard withdrawals. Imagine my delight when there WAS NO WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS! I used red vein kratom. I have little pain, not compared to what it would be with nothing. Kratom is surpringly relaxing, and addresses the pain quite well. Since I have started kratom I have not had issues with RLS, diarhea, or pain. People there is hope. And its name is kratom. I just hope the same idiots that ruined it for the rest of us with pan meds dont do the same with kratom. Additionally, I hope the egomanial politicians trying to score points with the general public by taking it off the market. If we can just keep kratom use for what it really does, addressing pain and stress, there wouldnt be a precription drug problem. And folks, this is all natural. Not a synthetic drug, not a chemically processed drug. It is a gift from nature and it respect it mightily!

  6. Me again! Just wanted to add that I have been off pain meds for 106 days. Not saying I will never take them again if needed for short periods. But for daily use I am confident that, for me pesonally, the way to go is kratom. I wish you all the best. If you are looki g into kratom, then obviously you want or need an alternative to opiates as I did. This would be it. I cant say enough about this wonderful plant derivative. It breaks my heart to think that instead of looking at it like an answer to our countrys drug problem, there are those that want to villify it. Shame on them. They dont trulu care about whats good for the public they are elected to represent. Instead they site crazy stories that cant be verified about untrue events just to scare peopke to their way of thinking. Sad.
