Hello all,

Can anyone recommend a reliable supplier of Kratom (or anything else which might work)?

I am getting desperate. I have tried all the dopamine agonists and really don’t want to go back on to them because of the side effects. I am on 150 grammes of Lyrica and 150 grammes of Tramadol, but this is no longer working, not to speak of the weight gain.

Any advice gratefully received.

Kratom works for me if the spasticity isn’t extreme. If it is I use cannabis, which I drink, like tea. I don’t like it but it works. This is on top of Pramipexole and Gabapentin. If you’re in the U.K. try KratomU.K.

Best luck.

Thanks a lot. I am in France but 2 of my children live in the uk, so I go there a lot. I’ll check it out.

Canopy Botanicals (type "speciosa" in search bar to locate their Kratom.)

I've had severe RLS my entire life (I'm 65) and Kratom works wonderfully for me.

Thank you so much. I’ve had it all my life too but it has become MUCH worse with age.

It works great for me too. How often do you take it and does doctor say ok.

I take it every night. Am working on gut rehabilitation to get to the root of the problem. (RLS rooted in leaky gut/imflamation.) Haven't relied on doctors much since I beat cancer with an alternative therapy. Current health care system great for traumatic injury, not much else.

I like their Red Jong Kong, Red Hulu Kappuas, and Red Ketapang. For some reason Red Bali keeps me awake. Everyone's body reacts to different types of Kratom idiosyncratically, although broad generalizations can be made. This company has excellent customer service and fast shipping even though I live on the opposite coast. I have no affiliation with this company. Start small, get some samples, start with 1/2 or 1 teaspoon. Good luck. So wonderful to be able to sleep!

Where are they based?

East coast. Sorry can't remember which state.

I have had good success with I'm not sure if they ship overseas, but you could easily ask them through their web site. They do appear to accept Dollars, Euros, and Pound Sterling.

Good luck!


I order it from and they post it to me. Theirs seems to be fine as regards quality and purity but have to confess I have never got it from anywhere else. I so wish it was legal and regulated. It works really well for me.

I usually use a red strain such as red vein Borneo. More recently I have been alternating between varieties to avoid becoming habituated.

Good luck. I hope you get some relief.

Thanks a lot. Do you mind me asking where you live?

Ireland - republic of. Where Kratom was legal up til a couple of years ago ☹️

Thanks. I live in France. I think it’s legal here but I’ll find out.

I’m just back from a fantastic break in Brittany. I have in-law relations in Melrand in central Brittany. A stunning part of the world.

Apparently Brittany was the only place in France where the temperatures were bearable recently.

I have looked at the Kratom website you recommended. They don’t seem to have Red Borneo at the moment, so I’ve mailed them for recommendations.

Thanks for the info.

I suspect any red strain will do the job. I haven’t found very much difference between the various strains.

I use about 3 strains and change around to keep it working. I hope it is kept legal. It helps me the most. Am going to try CBD also.

Thank you. Good luck with the CBD. I’d be interested to know what works as I intend to try the Kratom/CBD products when we get back from holiday.
