Kratom is very different to phenibut. But they both produce effects that generally lower peoples anxiety.
The effects with phenibut are more background effects. With phenibut it's almost like I don't feel anything at all, I'm just a different version of me that has less anxiety, and a bit more aggressive - It is really great stuff, but can be very dangerous if abused from withdrawals.
With kratom, you really notice the aroma. Depending on how much you burn, you can use it for approaching, being productive, lasting longer in bed,the euphoria, and anything that might cause you anxiety.
There is much lower risk of addiction with Kratom - and when used responsibly with tapering correctly, withdrawalss are very minimal - compared to a cold.
I am a daily burner with kratom and have been for some time. Every couple months or so, I'll taper down and take a break.Side Effects
Very high doses can sometimes mess with your eyes a bit. - It's happened to me twice before, almost like a small twitch
Constipation - It relax those muscles down there(no idea which ones haha) so you can be constipated - only seems to effect daily users. I use fibre supplements anyways which fixes that
Dehydrates you - Make sure you always drink plenty of water(kratom or no kratom it's very important)
thats about it for side effects that i can think of at the moment..
Kratom is definitely worth a try. When used correctly (alternating strains, right amount of grams) it can change your life for the better.
If you have anymore questions, let me know.
Rooster btw, the words "burn" and "aroma" that I'm using is precautionary measures (though their isn't a real risk, it's more of holding the right intention of GLL and its reputation)
