Kratom is much more than an opioid agonist, and no rhodiola will not totally cover kratom, but it can absolutely help with the mood and energy, two things that are lacking during kratom w/d. You do not always need an opioid to satisfy opioid cravings, and in most cases, simply prolongs the habituation. I thought I'd share my experiences with rhodiola. I really like it! I can see using it on no-kratom days for energy and a mood boost. The first time I took it. *Both Ashwagandha and Rhodiola can be stacked for synergistic effects with stimulating strains of Kratom (find out here where you can buy Kratom from reliable vendors). Rhodiola vs Ginseng. Panax Ginseng and Rhodiola Rosea are effective adaptogens that also provide stimulation and increased mental and physical endurance. What do I need to know about ashwagandha, rhodiola, and theanine? I'm a daily kratom user, taking a dose in the morning a night. I have these herbs/supplements that I'd like to try (i've only used theanine), but are they safe to take with kratom? Kratom seems to make my eyes feel very heavy as well and I didn't want to sleep either because I knew that Kratom lowers your blood pressure, I didn't want to heart to stop or anything. Now, I think I had a slight bit of CNS depression with a mixture of my own fear but I could be wrong. Rhodiola rosea extract, Bacopa 10:1 extract, Ashawagandha root powder, Black seed oil and Kava kava. Has anyone used any of these for kratom withdrawal? I consider to take all of them together in the morning except the kava (keep it for some kratom-free evenings in future) Any replys will be helpfull :-) Rhodiola gave a nice mood and energy lift, but it was always so mild that I could only attribute the effects to the rhodiola if I stopped and thought about it. When you're under the effects of kratom, you're definitely on something. So unless the rhodiola jacks up your heart rate and you combined it with a very stimulating strain of kratom, I can't see it causing any problems. Safe and legal alternatives of depression are many, and among all of them, Kratom is the most useful and powerful herb. There are several other region based herbs which are a powerful alternative to Kratom since it may not be available everywhere. One of such alternatives is Rhodiola Rosea. Rhodiola Rosea – the origin.
