Every year, there are more and more kratom strains available for sale. Kratom varieties can be mixed together by vendors to create brand-name versions. Anyone unfamiliar with Kratom may find it confusing. Consumers who have been around the block a few times can be puzzled by it. Despite this, a few varieties have stood the test of time and continue to dominate Kratom community discussions. Among them is Maeng Da Kratom. There is no doubt that it is one of the most sought-after Kratom products. You’ll understand why when you learn more about it.

What is Maeng Da Kratom?

It is common to see products labeled as Maeng Da Kratom on the market. Is there any meaning to that?

It is worth noting that in Thailand, the term Maeng Da is roughly translated to the term “pimp grade” in English. The term is Thai slang and is used to describe items or products that are regarded as better than the rest. Local Thais would only use the term Maeng Da to describe Kratom which was extremely potent, not regular Kratom. Because of this reason alone, most Maeng Da products are associated with Thai varieties, and that is why most suppliers sell them.

In spite of this, it is important to note that it does not mean that Kratom was grown in Thailand. In the 1940s, Thailand’s politicians banned the sale of Kratom in the country. As a result of the decriminalization of Kratom in Thailand in August 2021, the law was finally overturned. However, there are still restrictions on the exportation of this product. As of now, the government has only allowed it to be used by pharmaceutical companies. As a result, the Thai Maeng Da products that you purchase at the moment are grown in Indonesia.

However, it is important to keep in mind that Maeng Da strains contain a high concentration of alkaloids. The local farmers and suppliers still refer to it as “pimp grade” because of its quality and reputation.

How Much Maeng Da Kratom Should I Take?

It is generally recommended that you use the suggested serving size that is provided on the product label. There are some Kratom products that are more potent than raw Kratom leaves, such as extracts. It is possible for the recommended serving sizes to change over time. However, there are some common suggestions that are used for traditional Kratom powders. Those are listed below.

Typical Kratom Serving Size Measurements:

  • Low Kratom Dose Measurement — 1-3 grams.
  • Moderate Kratom Dose Measurement — 4-6 grams.
  • Large Kratom Dose Measurement — 7-9 grams.
  • Extremely High Kratom Dose Measurement — 10 or more grams.

Use the least amount of Kratom possible. Maeng Da is more potent than others. 

Nobody should take an extremely high dose of Kratom unless you’re an experienced consumer. Adverse side effects can accompany high doses. Please use caution!

How Long Do the Effects of Maeng Da Kratom Last?

In most cases, you will start feeling the effects of Maeng Da Kratom within thirty to forty-five minutes after you consume it. That is how long it takes for the substance to digest and reach the bloodstream, but its peak effects don’t appear until almost an hour after it has been consumed.

In general, the effects should begin to taper off about three to five hours after consumption – but this will depend on how much you consume. The longer it lasts, the more you take. The more you take, the longer it lasts. You may find that the amount of time it lasts can be altered if you take additional servings after you take the first dose.

Are There Any Side Effects Associated with Maeng Da Kratom?

It is possible to experience some side effects when using any psychoactive plant product. All of them are not strictly associated with Maeng Da. Kratom strains can cause known adverse reactions. Nonetheless, we should cover a few of them right now for those who are new to Kratom.

Known Side Effects from Maeng Da Kratom:

  • Loss of Appetite: Maeng Da Kratom has stimulating effects, which can diminish your appetite.
  • Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating): The stimulation Maeng Da Kratom provides can make your sweat glands work overtime. Cooler temperatures help prevent it.
  • Constipation: The loss of sweat can lead to dehydration, and constipation arises from that.
  • Nausea: Taking too much Kratom can cause an upset stomach. The best way to prevent this is to keep your doses small.

How to Store Your Maeng Da Kratom

Botanical products should be stored in a cool, dark place. Kratom is included in that category. Ingesting mold can cause health complications because it contains harmful bacteria.

Kratom’s chemical composition can be altered by direct sunlight. Oxidation is aided by UV lights. The mitragynine compound is altered by too much oxidation. Store your Kratom in a container that blocks UV light. A nontransparent and airtight canister will do the trick. Some Kratom users, however, prefer clear jars. Kratom powder’s shade allows them to distinguish strains. Nevertheless, labeling a container has the same result. 

Use a glass jar with a darker tint if you want to use a glass jar. Amber-colored glass blocks light wavelengths between 10 nm and 400 nm. That makes it ideal for blocking out UV rays.

Extreme heat can cause the degradation of Kratom alkaloids. Especially if you live in a hot climate, you should store it somewhere cool. If that is the case, you must have access to air conditioning.
