Maeng Da Kratom, or simply Maeng Da, is said to be the strongest Kratoms (alkaloids) strain. The leaves are darker in colour compared to other strains. It originates from Thailand and is genetic modification of the original strain. Maeng Da Kratom is duped as “pimp strain” because it is said to enhance both physical and sexual energy. There are 3 strains of Maeng Da Kratom: White, red and green strains.
Mode of action
Maeng Da Kratom contains higher concentrations of 2 alkaloids: 7-Hydroxymitragynine and Mitragynine. They both work on opioid receptors. Mitragynine opens opioid receptors thereby releasing endorphins. These produce euphoric feeling that is associated with opiates like morphine. Hydroxymitragynine has sedative and pain relief effects.
When determining the dosage, the goal is to avoid taking too much or too little. Figuring out individual threshold is very important. Dosage will mostly depend on how long you have used it. You are either a starter, moderate user, or experienced/long-term user.
- Starters: 2gm to 2.5gm
- Moderate user: 3gm to 5gm
- Experienced user: 5gm to 9gm
Due to higher levels of alkaloids in Maeng Da Kratom compared to other Kratom strains, you need to take 20% less in quantity.
Effects of Maeng Da
Euphoric effect kicks in after 15 minutes and peaks after 45 minutes. After 2 hours, you start getting the sedative feeling. The effects will stay for around 8 hours, but the duration varies from person to person. Negative effects of overdosing include sweating, shaking, nausea and vomiting. You can develop tolerance to Maeng Da Kratom after using it for more than 2 weeks.
Benefits of Maeng Da
Maeng Da Kratom is very good in mood-lifting. It gives that clear-headed boost and long-lasting euphoria that is good for starting a day. However, it is important to note that you can easily develop tolerance to this effect of Maeng Da. This is more so to those who take larger doses or take Maeng Da more frequently.
Maeng Da is very beneficial in treatment of chronic pain. It combines both excellent analgesia and stimulating effects. It is very good in managing moderate pains in patients who want to avoid sedative side effects produced by prescription. However, Maeng Da strain may not work very well for those with debilitating pain.
Stimulation is the primary effect of Maeng Da. It is characterised by a state of physical-mental readiness. The good thing is that it does not produce common side effects associated with caffeine such as general physical discomfort, cold palms, and sweating. It basically produces clear state of mind. It is a good remedy for those undergoing immense mental pressure.
One customer who had suffered chronic pain from a neck injury described the effect of Maeng Da Kratom as amazing. The client had stopped taking opiates after taking Maeng Da Kratom. After trying so many options for a long time, Maeng Da Kratom came to their rescue.
