Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is indigenous to the lush rain forests of South East Asia, specifically Thailand and Malaysia. Its large oval leaves grow on tropical trees often reaching over 15 meters in size. Many different alkaloids have been identified in kratom herb, but the substance mitragynine is the most important, causing a paradox of effects: it both stimulates and sedates.
The name Maeng Da loosely translates to ‘pimp grade’. Suffice it to say this is a higher quality type of kratom, hand selected in Thailand for its strong effects. The smell is strong and the leaves are very green in colour.
Kratom Maeng Da effects
Main effects are stimulation, euphoria and sedation. Lower dosages are said to provide more stimulation while at high dosages the dreamy, sedative effects become more pronounced. Additionally, it’s been reported that kratom acts as an aphrodisiac.
Of the different varieties, kratom from Thailand has the strongest energizing effects. Maeng Da can be seen as a high quality Thai variety and as such is the most potent variety currently on offer.
The effects come on within ten minutes and last for several hours.
Preparing Maeng Da for consumption
There are different ways to consume kratom. Traditionally the leaves are ground and eaten, usually followed by drinking warm water, tea or coffee. Kratom powder can also be used in a milkshake or with honey for extra flavour. Leaves can also be made into a tea, or a crude resin extraction can be made.
