Maeng Da Kratom powders and capsules are known to be the most powerful Kratom variety on the market today. It works to enhance both mood and energy. When ingested in the morning hours it will increase your motivation, give you energy and help you think more clearly for the entire day. Those experienced in using Kratom tout this variety as being of the highest quality available having more effects than other Kratom leaves. People who are new to using Kratom might think the effects are just too stimulating and instead decide it’s best to blend it with other, weaker strains in order to mitigate the effects.
The Maeng Da Kratom variety originally came from Thailand and the leaf was named in honor of the Lethocerus Indicus, a huge water bug, which is found in the local diet and considered a delicacy. “Maeng Da” is the local slang for the word “pimp” and labels on the product sometimes claim the product is “Pimp Grade”.
Review of Maeng Da Kratom
Maeng Da has been genetically engineered using the Thai Kratom tree. It’s higher in alkaloid content than the original strain of the Mitragyna Speciosa tree. This genetically engineered strain apparently exhibits more stability in growing and is not as susceptible to fluctuations in the environment and seasons. The leaves of the Maeng Da strain are much darker in color and results in a more vivid green when the leaves are crushed or ground into powder.
There are not a lot of empirical studies or evidence but there are reports that the Maeng Da strain has more mitragynine, mitraphylline and 7-hydroxymitragynine than the other varieties of Kratom.
Maeng Da Benefits and Effects
There are those that claim that Maeng Da is significantly more potent than the more typical Kratom leaves and others claim to perceive only a small difference or no difference at all. When people use it in small to medium sized doses, Maeng Da does act as a strong stimulant and makes you feel more alert, awake and vigilant. This strain of Kratom seems to affect cognitive abilities more than other strains and is comparable to the effects of Nootropics or supplements that enhance cognitive abilities.
Those who post reviews on Maeng Da claim that it enhances their ability to concentrate and pay attention and at the same time they say they are better able to mentally process information with less effort than usual. Many users say it helps them be more productive, have more energy while studying, working or otherwise engaged in mentally taxing tasks.
Experences with Maeng Da Leaf
Maeng Da Kratom is also known to work as a mood elevator which makes users feel anywhere from contented to completely euphoric. There is no doubt that Maeng Da Kratom does create a positive mind-set, helps people get more enjoyment out of their daily routine and increase enthusiasm. For some it acts as an antidepressant and that’s why they take it. It is also effective in boosting motivation and drive. Others use it for uplifting their mood and for added stamina when they are tasked with physically exhausting work or for work that is repetitive.
Most of the time you will find that Maeng Da Kratom is described as boosting energy but it is also known for its sedating effects. Similar to other Kratom strains, if you take more of it the results change and it then becomes a relaxant. In fact Maeng Da is known to be one of the most effective analgesics in the entire family of Mitragyna Speciosa and people who are searching for alternatives to opioids find answers in Maeng Da.
There is quite a lot of documentation on users taking Maeng Da for pain relief and that it is extremely effective for this. This particular strain of “Pimp Kratom” is also being used to enhance sexual enjoyment and performance, as an aphrodisiac and to prolong sexual intercourse.
Safe Maeng Da Kratom Dosages
Due to being highly concentrated in terms of active Kratom alkaloids, you are able to use 20% less of the Maeng Da strain than you would use of other strains and still get the same degree of effects. The minimum dose recommended when using Red Bali leaves or Premium Indo is 5g but you can get the same positive results by using about 4g of the Maeng Da Kratom strain. The smallest amount or threshold dosage you can take and still get noticeable effects is known to be only 2g.
If you take over 10g you will probably start feeling the effects of a sedative and you will begin to feel sleepy, comforted and any pain that you may have will be lessened. Maeng Da powders tend to last as long as 8 hours in your system which is longer than the usual strains. When you search online to buy Maeng Da Kratom you should try to find vendors with fresh powder that is very finely ground. This ensures that the active alkaloids will be more effectively absorbed into your system.
Are There Negative Side Effects of Maeng Da?
The stronger potency of Maeng Da Kratom does lead to enhanced benefits for some, but in other cases it may increase the side effects. There are several users who have written reviews claiming that the added energy made them feel anxious, agitated, jittery and irritated similar to an abundant dose of caffeine. People who are interested in using Kratom for treating stress and anxiety or to help relieve tension will more likely find better results by using a Red Vein strain like Bali, Borneo or Thai.
We read one review that stated that the feelings of intense pleasure and euphoria typically associated with Maeng Da can also turn into dizziness and an absence of mental clarity if you take too much of it at once. Other side effects of Kratom are:
• Gastrointestinal distress
• Respiratory Depression
These side effects may be magnified in certain people with more sensitivity. For those considering trying Maeng Da Kratom capsules or powder you should begin with a no more than a half dose or even a smaller amount in order to adjust to the effects and you should always make a note of any side effects that you experience.
