The history of Red Maeng da kratom
You probably already know about kratom but do you also know about Red Maeng Da? It belongs to the great kratom family but its a bit unusual and brings along with it a whole new level of potency with great benefits to match.
But what is unique about Red Maeng Da kratom, and how can it give you its benefits? Read on and get to know more about it.
Red Maeng Da is the red version of the Maeng Da class of kratoms. Kratom itself comes in 3 main strains, red, green and white. Each color is named for the color that the stems and leaf veins of the strain take. Moreover, each of these strains, whether red, white or green, have additional strains that are based on the location where the strain was grown or sourced from. Therefore we have Red Bali Kratom, which is red kratom strain from Bali or White Indo kratom which is a white strain from Indonesia. What is curious about Red Maeng Da is that it doesn’t fit into any of this.
Its name, Maeng Da, which is a Thai word, isn’t a place or location. It just means “grade pimp.” in English. Maeng Da is just a name kratom vendors put to their products as a marketing gimmick to cause the product to be perceived as highly potent by consumers. How potent are they in reality, though?
That will largely depend on the vendor. If the vendor and all his counterparts in the entire production process have integrity, then you can indeed get a good Maeng Da product. If you get hold of an authentic Maeng Da product, then rest assured it is a very potent product.
Red Maeng Da kratom comes from blending more than one standard kratom strains to achieve a vastly more potent product. The original kratom strains have to be chosen carefully and then harvested and dried in a particular way to ensure a high-end product.

Another general guideline to the dosage to be used relates to the goal you intend. These can either be medicinal or recreational.
You are recommended to take low doses if your goal is medicinal. This comes to about 2 to 3 gm. Capsule form would usually require taking about 4 of them since this amounts to 4 gm.
For recreational purposes, higher doses are effective. You need about 4 to 5 gm to accomplish a euphoric effect.
Other factors affecting dosage level determination include weight and age. Since all these vary with different people, it’s not possible to have dosages that hold correctly for everyone. Therefore each person needs to determine his ideal dosage by personally experimenting with smaller doses and then slowly increasing them over a given time to see the effect.
Long term use of kratom can be harmful, so one is advised to break or interrupt its use. Since Red Maeng Da kratom is quite potent, it can cause you to develop tolerance quite fast.
