I take it occasionally too
Kratom really did help me when I had a bit of a habit of opiates in the past and was trying to get off them. Nowadays, I take it for work or when I need a stimulating boost once in awhile (I'm unemployed right now anyways though so I've been laying off it). I think its pretty good and I like it, although it seems your tolerance goes up pretty quickly.
Ever hear about those more mild strains theyre trying to go around the law to sell in stores with in most states? There's this "delta 8 THC" strain which apparently is a lighter version of the "delta 9" which is what is in regular THC weed, but they're able to sell it here even though weed is not recreationally legal yet (just medical in FL).
