If you feel kratom having less and less effect on you then you should reset your kratom tolerance using stem and vein kratom.
It sucks losing the magic of kratom and missing out on the extra energy, reduced anxiety, pain relief, and the well-being that kratom provides.
Read on to discover exactly how to prevent this from happening.
How Tolerance Builds Up
The beneficial effects of kratom are caused by the alkaloids in the plant acting on the opioid receptors in your brain.
Over time, as you continue to use kratom, these receptors will develop a tolerance to the alkaloids in kratom. They’ll “get used to” the alkaloids.
The result is that you’ll gradually need more and more kratom to feel the same effect.
How To Avoid Tolerance
The best way to avoid building a tolerance in the first place is to rotate your kratom.
Take a different strain each day if you’re a daily kratom user like I am.
Wait at least seven days or longer between using the same kind of kratom. This means that if you’re a daily kratom user you’ll need to have at least seven different strains of kratom on hand.
This is one reason why it’s good to know where to find good kratom.
Ways To Lower Tolerance
Eventually your tolerance will build up at least a little bit even if you’re rotating strains.
If you’re not rotating strains then it will build up even faster.
But you can do something about this.
There are some compounds that you can take that may be able to lower your tolerance. This is a topic for another time.
Another way to reset your tolerance is by using stem and vein kratom.
What Is Stem & Vein Kratom?
Stem & Vein kratom, as the name implies, is made from the left over stems and veins that have been removed from the kratom leaf.
The stems and veins are ground up into a fine powder and can be used just like regular kratom. You’ll just need to use more to get the same effect (read further below).
Aren’t The Stems & Veins Bad?
Normally, you want to avoid the stem and vein particles in your kratom.
For most kratom strains, these have a tendency to produce effects that you don’t want. They tend to produce feelings of anxiety in most people.
That is why high-quality kratom vendors like Happy Hippo (link) make sure that their kratom powder is sifted repeatedly to remove stem and vein particles.
However, the stem and vein powder of certain strains of kratom actually does not have this effect and produces feelings similar to normal kratom leaf powder.
As a good example, Happy Hippo’s stem and vein powder (link) is made from their Super Green kratom variety (called Happy Hippo 1). This is a very high quality stem and vein kratom powder and is the one I’ve used exclusively for quite some time now.
Exactly How To Use Stem & Vein
You will need more of the stem and vein powder to get the same effect. You will need to take about one and a half times as much as regular kratom powder.
For example, if your regular kratom dose is 3.0 grams you will need 4.5 grams of stem and vein powder.
What’s nice is that stem and vein kratom usually costs much less than regular leaf kratom, about half the price. So this balances out the fact that you’ll need more of it.
You will take stem and vein kratom the same way you do regular leaf kratom. I use the toss and wash method but you can make it into a tea or blend it with a drink.
Take the stem and vein kratom for anywhere between three to five days consecutively. You shouldn’t take any other kratom during this time.
You’ll notice the effects are similar to regular kratom. It’s a moderate strain and it’s more on the feel-good, calming side rather than energizing.
One difference is that the effects won’t last as long as regular kratom does. Rather than four to six hours, you may only notice the kratom effect for an hour or two.
After the three to five days have passed you can go back to your regular kratom rotation. You should notice that your tolerance kratom has now been lowered significantly.
I follow this process with stem and vein kratom every three months or so. I take a whole week “off” and only use stem and vein during this time. I’ve noticed that with this my kratom tolerance returns back to its baseline level.
Losing the effects of kratom sucks. Building up a tolerance to its effects is a natural consequence of not rotating strains properly or even just something that happens slowly over time even if you do rotate strains.
While there are some compounds that can help lower your tolerance, stem and vein kratom is a natural and effective way to reset your tolerance.
Simply use stem and vein kratom for three to five days consecutively while you take a break from regular kratom leaf and you’ll notice your tolerance to kratom is reduced significantly.
Do this every few months and you should keep your kratom tolerance in check.
I use Happy Hippo Herbals’ stem and vein kratom exclusively. Other vendors’ version may not be as clean and will produce more anxiety than well-being.
