When you begin your journey with kratom, if you were one who needed something to help your mood, then you know the feeling of having to “chase the joy” at one point or another. This usually begins to happen once you have been taking kratom for quite some time. Kratom improves your mood in a subtle but yet fulfilling way, but after some time, that feeling is short lived and you find yourself chasing the joy. Another similar phrase is chasing the high. However, I refuse to use that verbiage when it comes to being a kratom consumer. It is not a high that you feel after consuming kratom. It’s a feeling. You FEEL so much better, more at ease, pain free, and energized (depending on the strain you take). But regardless, you will eventually find yourself chasing those benefits as years pass as a regular kratom consumer.
Those of us who live in the Pacific Northwest (PNW), live under a near constant cover of clouds and rain that last over 300 days a year (depending on where you are up here). If you are up here, chances are you don’t mind that. Chances are, you love those rainy days where you smell the wet fir trees while their branches shield you from the majority of the rainfall. Perhaps you might also be a Twilight fan, or definitely have heard of it. Most likely you quietly shame the “out of state” expats who have moved into your town, hiking up your housing prices and causing the majority of the accidents on the road!!—- Oh, excuse me. I got carried away there. Regardless if you love it here or are too pour to move, one thing 90% of us have in common are low vitamin D levels. In fact, it’s a well known thing around here (perhaps only to those from here *insert smug smirk and side eye).
Why do we get excited about simple things like these (give or take)? Well, I dug into the psyche to figure that one out. Aka, I sought out professionals and their answers to this curious thing.
