Maeng Da Kratom originates from Thailand and is known to be the strongest strain of kratom. This is due to its stimulating effects and the fact that it can provide an instant boost of energy to the user.
As a result, it is extremely popular amongst users of Kratom. However, its effectiveness can only be realized if the correct Maeng Da Kratom dosage is taken.
Avoid Taking Maeng Da Kratom Too Little
After reviewing online forums and finding out from users themselves, we have discovered that any Maeng Da dosage less than 1.5 grams is too little.
The medical effectiveness of the strain is numbed and users will feel that the strain is not effective.
Therefore, the correct starting dosage of Maeng Da for a beginner is 1.5 grams.
However, those users who have previously taken other strains of kratom, such as Red Bali or Borneo, can start off with 2 grams of 2.5 grams of Maeng da kratom.
This is because the pituitary and hypothalamus areas of their brain will be more immune to the effects of Kratom.
As a result, they will need slightly increased dosages of Maeng Da Kratom in order to feel stimulated and energized.
Can Too Much Result In An Overdose?
Like any substance, one should avoid overdosing in order to avoid unpleasant side effects. Any dosage of Maeng Da above 10 grams is considered too much.
A dosage of Maeng Da above 10 grams can only be tolerated by those who have been consuming this strain for long periods of time.
Moreover, a dosage that is higher than the ideal threshold can actually have opposite impact, as a result of corynantheidine, which is as an opioid antagonist.
User results show that an increased dosage of Kratom, such as 12-15 grams consumed during the course of a day, can have side effects.
These include migraines, vomiting, sweating, shaking uncontrollably and feeling terrified.
However, drinking 2 glasses of water and doing breathing exercises soon allows the negative effects to vanish.
Moreover, there has been no known death from kratom overdose, especially from Maeng Da, nor does it lead to addiction or dependency.
Match The Dose To The Objective
Maeng Da usage objectives are mainly two; medicinal and euphoric. The ideal dosage for euphoric or recreational usage is 3 to 4 grams, and the ideal dosage for medicinal usage is 2.5 to 4 grams.
These dosages depend on the overall weight and drug usage history of the user. Ideally, users should increase dosage by 0.5 grams for every 10 kg increase in their weight from the ‘normal’ or ‘average’ BMI for people of their ages and height.
Also, it is important to remember that lower doses can often be more energizing than higher ones.
The reason is due to the sedation curve of the chemical 7-hydroxymitragynine present within Maeng Da.
If the intention is for medicinal usage, such as to relieve pain or improve concentration, then the Maeng Da dose should be taken on an empty stomach.
This allows Maeng Da to perform much more effectively and immediately stimulates the opioid receptors in our bodies.
Dosage can be increased after every 3 days by 0.5 grams to slowly get used to the effects.
How To Measure Correct Maeng Da Dosage
The easiest way to measure Maeng Da dosage is by using teaspoons, as people normally do not have scales at home to calculate grams.
Half a teaspoon of Maeng Da powder equals 1.5 grams and is a sufficient dosage to start off with. It is better to use powder form, though people also take capsules.
Such capsules are normally marked with dosage amount but are more expensive than powdered form.
At the end of the day, it depends on personal preference, but the dosage should always be measured before consumption.
Maeng Da Kratom Side Effects
Common side effects of Maeng Da kratom have involved dizziness, sweating, headaches or migraines, dehydration, shaking, nausea or vomiting etc.
None of these side effects are extremely severe and usually disappear after an hour or two.
The key is to remain hydrated and relaxed, as this will prevent any aches or dizziness.
