Maeng Da Kratom comes from Thailand. This strain is a modified variety of kratom. However, this modification results in a more stable development of the alkaloids in the leaves during environmental changes.
What’s in the Kratom Powder?
Kratom powder contains mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. These alkaloids are responsible for the stimulating or sedative effects of kratom. The right amount of dose varies from one strain to another.
Different Amounts of Dosage for Maeng da
Maeng Da kratom has three strains, the white, green, and red. Each strain has a different effect. Each variety requires the correct dosage to achieve the result you want.
Generally, the recommended dosage is as follows:
- Low dosage – 1 gram (half for first time users)
- Light dosage – 2 – 3 grams
- Moderate dose – 3 – 5 grams
- Heavy dose – 6 to 8 grams
- Highest dose – 10 grams or more
You can adjust this recommendation if you’re a bit bigger than the average built. However, don’t increase your dosage on a daily basis. You may increase the dosage every other day instead until you get the desired effect.
Maeng Da Comes in Various Forms
You can consume Maeng Da in powder/capsule, crushed leaves, or liquid.
Crushed leaves aren’t as popular as powder and liquid. Thus, you can rarely see online vendors who sell crushed kratom leaves. This form is best for those who would like to make it into tea.
You can take kratom powder as it is or in a capsule. Capsules may contain different grams, depending on the size. For a standard size, you may need four pills for the effect of 2 grams.
However, capsules take a slower time to effect in your system. Since the coating of capsules is made of gelatin, your body needs to break this down first before your system can absorb the kratom powder.
Capsules are recommended for beginners or for users who can’t withstand the bitter taste of the powder.
Liquid kratom, as vendors claim, is more potent than the powder. The additional process of extracting the liquid increases the concentration of alkaloids.
Most often the recommended form for liquid kratom is one drop. Some users prefer the liquid form because it tastes better than the powder.
Side Effects of Taking a Dosage Too High
High dosage regardless of strain can lead to anxiety attacks and jitters. Other users report nausea or dizziness. Fortunately, no reports of life-threatening side effects have been made yet.
These side effects are counterproductive especially if you want to become productive and efficient. Avoid experiencing these side effects by sticking to the recommended dose. If you’re going to increase the dose, do it gradually and cautiously.
Over time, you’ll develop tolerance if you’re using the same strain. To avoid tolerance to a specific strain, it’s important that you rotate these strains.
For beginners, you can buy several different packs. A starter pack would be good.
For example, you can purchase a 1-oz pack of green Maeng Da, another pack for white strain, 1-oz pack of red and another pack of yellow strain or any strain of your choice.
For each day, burn different strains, allowing an interval of five to six hours for each dose.
With Maeng Da dosage, less is more. Most of the time, a small amount of kratom is enough to feel the stimulating effects known to Maeng Da strain.
This strain is fast acting. You can feel the effects within minutes of taking the powder.
The duration of effect lasts for six hours. Thus, you can have your first dose early in the morning. If you think you need another dose, you can take the second one sometime after lunch.
Drink lots of water to help your system get rid of kratom metabolites better. In the short duration of the spectrum, you can remove the traces of kratom within six hours or longer depending on your body frame.
Don’t take Maeng Da kratom on a daily basis if you don’t need it.
Do not take a dosage higher than the prescribed one to avoid developing tolerance and dependency on kratom. Although kratom is a natural stimulant and painkiller, tolerance is still possible.
The standard or minimum Maeng Da dosage is half a gram for first-time users and 2 grams for long-time users. While this is the standard, you can always mix and match.
However, you have to remember that the effects of kratom are sometimes dose-dependent. Your body frame is also an essential factor in how these effects affect you.
