My unicorn has been using kratom
(normally powder, occasioanlly leaf or extract) twice a week, 20-25 grams a session in general. He will occasioanlly 'binge' from Friday-Sunday night, and make his way through a 100g bag. If one of these all-weekenders occurs, the unicorn will eschew his mid-week kratom and wait until the next Sunday again before before brewing up some Thai leaf tea., thus ensuring a full weeklong break.
The result, after nearly 2 years, has been little or no increase in tolerance levels, and no reduction in feelings of euphoria
. The only major change has been the unicorn is never sick anymore, when he was throwing-up perhaps one time in three times per session when starting out; this is, of, course a wholly positive change! A combination of holidays abroad, and my supplier running out of stock recently meant the unicorn went three weeks without any kratom, and experiened no w'd symptoms.
So, to (eventually!) answer the Original Poster's question, the unicorn's own experiences with kratom suggest that one dose per week is quite safe, addiction
Finally the unicorn would like to add that he has great difficulty sleeping after taking kratom. This initially annoyed him, as can only take kratom once during the week (with 1-2mgs of xanax
to aid sleep) in order to avoid chronic insomnia.
However, the unicorn now regards this state of affairs as somewhat of a blessing, as he is not tempted to take kratom more regularly. He feels that had he been able to sleep and therefore function the next day, he may well have fallen into near daily use before long, and put himself at risk of the addicition that other people have mentioned up-thread.
