Maeng Da Kratom has one of the most potent effects among the alkaloids strains offered today. It was initially popularized in Thailand as a medical treatment. Though it’s still famous for its medicinal attributes, many use it as an opioid.
Its demand today has dramatically increased as it’s useful in treating chronic pain, and it comes in several forms: the red, white, and green.
Due to its therapeutic attributes, people use it for different reasons:
It acts as:
However, some studies show that the abuse of Kratom will cause serious consequences, such as kidney and pulmonary injury, hepatotoxicity, thyroid injury, cardiotoxicity, seizures, and even coma.
Several compounds are found in the leaves of the Maeng Da Kratom. However, two compounds have higher volumes compared to the others. These are 7-Hydroxymitragynine and Mitragynine.
These components work in coalition with your opioid receptors. The 7-Hydroxymitragynine is responsible for pain relief, as well as the sedative effects. On the other hand, the Mitragynine will open up your opioid receptors, releasing endorphins. This process creates euphoria, the feeling linked to opiates, like morphine.
If you’re still starting to use it, you need to begin with light dosages. Those who use it usually apply two techniques when measuring the right dose. You can choose from using a teaspoon or a digital scale.
A ½ teaspoon is equal to 15 grams of Maeng Da Kratom powder.
As long as you use this ratio as a basis, you won’t have any problems in measuring the right dosage.
Firstly, it’s up to you to discover what your standard level is. You need to figure out the right balance so that you can maximize your experience with Maeng Da.
These are the suggested dosages:
Take note: In Maeng Da, the alkaloid concentration is relatively higher compared to others. You are only allowed to use 20% lesser quantity compared to other types of strains.
For instance, if you’re going to use Red Bali, it’s recommended that you use around 5 grams. However, when it comes to Maeng Da, you only need to use about 4 grams to achieve your desired outcome.
Experienced users stated that they were able to achieve favored results by increasing their dosages by 1 gram every half to one hour. However, factors such as experience and weight must be considered first. Don’t exceed a dosage of 12 grams to prevent adverse effects.
The effects of using Maeng Da Kratom come in two stages:
Each person has a unique experience with the Maeng Da, but a typical dose should produce effects for around eight hours.
So far, there are no cases of overdose, but as mentioned earlier, to prevent any side effects such as nausea, vomiting, headache, shaking, and sweating, you should be careful not to exceed 12 grams in an 8-hour cycle.
After two weeks of using Maeng Da Kratom, you will notice that the results will start to diminish. Some experienced users have come up with ways on how to control tolerance.
One way to prevent tolerance build-up is to mix Maeng Da with other types of Kratom. For example, take 5 grams of Maeng Da and add 2 grams of Red Vein Thai.
Another way is to increase your dosage carefully. For example, your daily dosage is 5 grams; you can add 1 – 2 grams to achieve stronger outcomes.
Clearly, Maeng Da Kratom can lead a person to high tolerance and dependency if not used correctly. The cautious way to prevent this is by starting with lower doses, experimenting with different means of preparation, and by mixing Maeng Da with other Kratoms.
