    What makes it so "PHENOMENAL" ???

    Care to get more in-depth, maybe share your experience, dosage, how it differs compared to other Kratom products?

    Ok from what I heard....

    It is genetically grown derivative of the thai strain (which was always TPIK's least fave kratom)

    Here is the description she got prior to trying it:

    So TPIK was intrigued.... ordered some the day her vendor got it in... She has a high tolerance... Uses kratom daily to overcome a worse addiction, and normally doesn't get too much euphoria from kratom. Well she took only 1.5tsp, and because of her tolerance (she takes about 20 grams of Bali every day) she bumped it with another tsp an 1/2hr later. Within the next 30min ... TPIK threw up, which kratom has never made her do.... She thought the buzz would go since it ALL came up... But quite the contrary - She became itchy; nodding here and there, but for the most part UP UP UP!! Great energy kick combined with the euphoria that most Thai lacks *In TPIK's opinion* The biggest surprise was she didn't want or need another dose for almost the ENTIRE day. And TPIK takes it 3times a day normally!!!

    Well worth the try!! I have seen a few vendors carrying it but supplies are limited... So TPIK just ordered another 50 grams...

    FOR WHO???? Most ALL the vendors have it ... that was actually a post copied from the wholesaler that provides kratom in the US.... And regular ppl cannot order from them anyways - only vendors.....

    Plz don't insinuate i am spamming, cuz i am not.... We talk about UEI and there is only one vendor that makes that product. This is now a widely available kratom product, and this is the kratom forum.... I was merely trying to see if anyone else has tried it cuz it just released this wk.

    I am sure it was 'PHENOMENAL', but as long as I don't see experience reports this doesn't mean much to me. It looks like hyping, even if you didn't mean it that way. No offense meant.

    Please tell us more about it-- such as SWIY much you took, and so on.

    This is the genetically modified kratom, if I am not mistaken. If it's as good as you say, many people will be interested in what you have found out about it!

    From what TPIK said, it is comparable to an Enhanced Kratom - Such as SEK or EB. I did say how much she took in my original post. And something she did notice is the length of time it lasted... At least 6-8hrs passed without a desire to take more.

    She just got 50 more grams yesterday, and this morning took 1tsp RVT and 1tsp MDT and the effects felt similar to UEI or EB....

    It is super bright green in color and seems to have a similar smell as Malaysian kratom.

    I am sure it's just a matter of time before other reviews start popping up all over. We have a large thread on it on my forum, and many are members have ordered it...so reviews will be coming.... I know I cannot give the link to my forum or I'd just send ya'll over to read the thread..... As more reviews come thru I will definitely report back as to what others think about it... But I know for TPIK this is way better than any non-enhanced product she has ever tried... and possibly on par with UEI (not gram per gram...but as far as effects...gram per gram more like SEK or EB)

    And I tried to explain the experience above the best I could... sorry it wasn't up to snuff, or what u were seeking... but I have a hard time on this forum, always afraid of wording stuff wrong. Sorry.[​IMG]

    That's interesting. How much is a 'tsp' (teaspoon)? About 4g?

    Depending on the grind, I'd say this particular is around 3 maybe. But TPIK doesn't have access to a scale, so that is merely an estimate.

    On the little quote about or somewhere I seen active at 1-2grams... but she has a high tolerance.

    My Dog uses Maeng Da daily and likes it better than any other strain he has tried so far. He uses about 2.5 grams to start out with and then about an hour later uses about 3 more grams. For the first dosing it seems to give him a more euphoric feeling that last a good long while. When the euphoria starts to decline he eats about 3 more grams giving him a euphoric feeling and seems more sedating at this point. This feeling usually lasts him about all day considering he wakes up at 9:30 and goes to bed at about 10:00. My dog woudnt have it any other way

    Maeng Da is my dogs favorite strain too. He finds it to be the most euphoric and also the cleanest high of them all. Its also the only strain he can smoke a cigarette on without getting terrible nausea. To bad it is the most expensive strain.

    SWIM has been very underwhelmed with maeng da, and he's had it from many sources. It's definitely not worth the price:thumbsdown: when for that kind of money SWIM can get some UEI and be happy (although 99.9% of the time that money actually buys a bag of smack, but YMMV)

    Also relevant:
    Can others confirm this dose range?

    Swim has a high tolerance to Kratom, an average dose of maybe 30 grams of Thai. The first time Swim tried Maeng Da was a 5 gram sample he was given, he tried it on its own (T&W) no food had been consumed nor any other drug taken and he did feel a slight energising effect and very mild Euphoria.

    At 5 grams Swim would easily believe that a person with zero tolerance could probably feel its effects at the 1 gram dose but it is not going to be anything mind blowing.

    Swim has since experimented with Maeng Da plenty of times and feels that it is about 1.5 times as strong as the Thai leaf he uses. The Thai leaf is for Swim notably stronger than regular Bali so perhaps Maeng Da would be twice as strong as Bali?

    It is the most Euphoric leaf for Swim by far. 15 grams taken as a tea is first felt within 15 minutes with strong Euphoria at the 30 minute mark.
    Its more stimulating than Bali, probably on a par with Thai, but Swim did not notice it taper off any quicker than other types.

    Could MZenthusiastic expand on how this strain is genetically modified? As a pharmacology student, the Fennec Fox would like to know how this strain would have more pronounced effects, compared to others?

    In short- does it have more of a certain alkaloid, or perhaps a new alkaloid?
    The term 'genetically modified' is misleading at best unless it can be expanded upon..
    Let's not put any swimmers at risk here.

    This thread was started over 3 years ago, things have changed a lot since then.
    Obviously Maeng Da is not Genetically modified, it is simply a strain with an unusually high alkaloid count compared to most (but not all) other strains.

    Swimmers have been using it for years, its no more of a risk than other strains of Kratom.

    Is Swiy new to Kratom? The Dr. would be surprised if there are still sites making claims about it being genetically modified, although some vendors make such outlandish claims about Kratom that he probably shouldn't be surprised.

    My friend ordered some Maeng Da with his latest batch of regular product. He says it gives a significantly stronger experience per gram, requiring ~4-5g to match ~7-8 of the regular. However, he also says that there was nothing unique about this type aside from its potency, and due to the ease with which he can put kratom into capsules for quick consumption the price per dose becomes the most driving factor, with Maeng Da being too expensive to justify in his mind.

    There is negligible difference in potency b/w plain leafs such as maeng da, old school thai, and bali. Maeng Da does have more of a stimulating effect, but I wouldn't call it more euphoric than quality bali. If your rat has to t&w more than 12g of any plain leaf, it's a bad source. I know a rat that came off of a heroin addiction w/10g of bali 3x/day.
