What is the Suggested Dosage for Red Maeng Da?
Each person has different levels of response to a certain drug or herb. For this reason, we cannot provide an accurate dosage for Red Maeng Da, particularly if you want to achieve a specific effect. Below are the tip and suggested dosage we gather from user guides and user experiences.
When dosing Red Maeng Da, the general guideline is to match the dosage with the effect you desired. There are two reasons for a person to use Maeng Da Kratom. First is for medicinal purposes – stress relief, pain relief or for recreational reasons such as euphoria or stimulation.
As for the medicinal benefits, the dosage recommendation is standard, which is often in a lower dosage of 2 to 4 grams. Such dosage works for most people. In capsule form, taking four capsules with 0.5grams potency can satisfy this amount.
On the other hand, the recreational effect requires more dosage. Most people take 3 to 4 grams of Maeng Da to achieve a euphoric and pleasant effect but it is better to begin with a lower dose and work your way up.
These dosage ranges vary individually, especially if the people take Kratom on a regular basis. The effect may also vary depending on the user’s drug history and body weight. The suggested dosage range mentioned above is for people above 18 years of age and with moderate weight.
Elderly and obese or overweight users may not achieve the exact experience for this dose. A user may increase the dose by 0.5 grams for every 10kg extra weight.
General Guidelines When Using Red Maeng Da
Mitragyna Speciosa or Kratom is a highly dosage sensitive herb in terms of effects. When it comes to the effect, these Kratom strains differ based on the amount of dosage. When the dose is increased, the benefits or effects increases too.
Below are some details on how to use Red Maeng Da Kratom:
- Red Maeng Da is a popular strain and many people prefer this, especially in capsule form. Unlike other preparations like resin, tincture and leaf powder, the capsule form contains an accurate amount, which is beneficial for those who need to determine the exact dosage.
- There are only a number of Kratom strains known for delivering a unique, powerful experience. Maeng Da is one of them. The red strain is so intense that a lot of Kratom users consider it as the original Kratom. However, the high strain works well when taken in the appropriate amount. If the dose is too high or low, it won’t provide your desired effect.
- Based on online discussions among various Kratom circles, anything less than 1.5 grams won’t offer any significant effect. This dosage isn’t enough and may give off a feeling that Red Maeng Da is not working. Hence, it is better to begin with a little higher dose of 2.0 grams. This dose is ideal to give an energy boost and stimulation.
When using the capsule form, each capsule contains 500mg dosage. So for 2 grams dosage, you only need to take 4 capsules to reach its ideal potency. This is way easier than measuring and weighing 2 grams of powder.
- Taking a high dose of Kratom may seem fascinating but this doesn’t offer so much benefit. Taking too much does not always mean achieving the best experience. Just like other herbs, you must avoid using a high dose of Red Maeng Da. Taking more than 7 grams is already risk and beyond 10 grams is highly unsafe.
- Unlike other Maeng Da strains, the red vein has a longer effect. Most users claim that the effect can last up to 10 hours in some cases. However, the average duration of effect is 5 to 6 hours, which is better than other native Kratom strains.
- When used for medicinal purposes, results are more effective when taken on an empty stomach. Avoid taking red Maeng Da capsule after a heavy meal as it can delay the effect.
