    I bought some from a local shop....it was a suspension oil with alkaloids in it. 9 grams liquid. I took all 9 grams at once. This stain is by far my favorite. It gave me a nice calming effect and made my body feel really loose. Only side effects I noticed was I got really tired once it wore off

    Keep your vision twisted!

    Please twistedvision, tell your friend to try and not to buy kratom from a local shop, they seem to over-price it terribly and not give you enough to get a good effect.

    My pet slug/centipede-science-experiment takes about 7 grams a day via capsules. Maeng Da is the best he's found. He's a scrawny slug male, about 150 lbs., but he can handle his opiates. He used to get a relatively good euphoria, comparible to vicodin, from it but anymore he just takes it for pain relief and energy. The euphoria used to last a good hour or 3, and the energy/pain relieveing effects were good for an entire work day. Unfortunately his habit has gotten too expensive, and his unemployed trophy wife needs shoes, and hot fishnet leggings, so he keeps it under 7.5 grams a day, maybe if he can gather up the courage to stop for a while he can start over from scratch and regain the euphoria effects one day, but for now he does it to succeed at his workplace kind of like the movie "Limitless" except not near that potent.
    But to make a long story short for kratom in general, I reccomend this natural herb!

    Male 160lbs. I've taken TMD many times. It is the shit! The most stimulating, kick-ass form of kratom. For me it has some low-end bottom notes (but not as much as RVT). Think of an herbal speed-ball. It's also the most expensive strain out there.
    Not as analgesic as Bali (or RVT for that matter), but still has some analgesic properties.

    Can you please elaborate on what "low-end bottom notes" means.

    Sorry, I'll try to be more detailed. Maeng-Da is known for it's strong stimulating properties, in relation to other kratom strains (like Bali). However, it also has some analgesic (narcotic, pain-killing properties), especially in higher amounts. In higher amounts, not only is it more intense, the more the narco properties come out, especially after the peak aroma.
    You gotta watch how much you use though, because eye wobbles and nausea can set in (they suck!)with strong kratom strains.

    My first experience with this strain was super euphoric for a duration of 4 hours/ I took about a tablespoon of it.

    The only problem that was disappointing was the second day I toke another dose of the same amount with not nearly as much euphoria. Just more of a warm body buzz that lasted about 4 hours. Which was disappointing

    My guess is tolerance builds very fast or could be the fact that I got my stuff from a head shop.

    Or from flashy internet sites that sell kratom in packaging that resembles those used for research chemicals (bath salts) and that have to resort to ridiculous names to get people to buy their overpriced products.

    You need to report your posts when you make a mistake, until you get the edit function yourself, which will happen if you make it to silver level, although breaking the rules will prevent that from happening.
    Report by going to the top right hand corner of the post and clicking (!) and asking a moderator to delete it.

    BTW 4 teaspoons could easily be a lot more than 10 grams.
    You need to use a digital scale to measure your kratom.

    10 grams is also a massive and completly unnecessary amount to take, unless you have a huge tolerance, opiate tolerance or the kratom is just pretty weak.

    Got a new batch of Maeng Da today, it has a much richer flavor than the previous batch. Mixed 3.7 g of Maeng Da with 6.5 g of Bali. The Bali is an old batch that I found in the back of my drawer, it's relatively tasteless and less potent than fresh Bali. Seems like the Maeng Da is potent enough to overcome the weakness of the Bali, above average effects tonight, drifting in and out of consciousness a bit and I only took it 1.5 hours ago and have eaten alot since then. This is certainly on par with if not better than the high achievable via poppy seed tea or hydrocodone.

    I always mix my Maeng Da with Bali since Maeng Da lacks the stimulation effects and perhaps other things (at least my batch does), Bali really rounds out the experience. At the same time Maeng Da really rounds out the experience too since it induces euphoria and nodding moreso than Bali.

    Thanks for the info, Ian.
    I do realize that a digital scale is preferred and I have ordered a decent one from online to make sure people know how much is being taken.
    10grams is massive? Still relatively new to the Kratom world, but enjoying the learning portion. Is 2g of Super Enhanced Maeng Da a massive dose? Taking it with toast.

    Oh, and I reported the post. <3

    Depends on your opiate tolerance and how often you do this. As a once a month dose, 10 grams sounds reasonable to me. If taking it regularly, that amount is going to push your tolerance up unnecessarily.
    I've been advised that 'enhanced' versions are not worth the price. I haven't done much after trying one order, I think I would do about 2-3 grams. Enhanced versions are more powerful, but not that much more powerful.

    I'll let you know if anything happens as a result of the Enhanced Maeng Da Thai.

    Not really one to use Kratom regularly. Mostly going for maximum effects at the time of dosage.

    Yes, for anyone without tolerance it is.
    Enhanced products can be very potent. Start with 1 gram to judge how strong it is.

    They might not be worth the price but that does not mean they are not strong.
    2-3 grams of UEI would be more than enough to put most people new to kratom on their back. UEMD could be stronger again.

    I would advise avoiding these enhance products. They will raise your tolerance, making regular leaf useless in regular doses. There are plenty of reports from people who got into habits with UEI and other powerful enhanced kratom and the addiction is expensive and the withdrawals are nasty.

    As a treat once every now and then they are fine, but be very careful.

    Thanks for the information, ianzombie! [love your name btw, but that's unrelated]

    I'd like to say that I came to a realization that the Super Enhanced Maeng Dai was useless for me.
    A happy void occured, but the vendor was kind enough to mail more to me.

    UEI's are definitely not worth the price, but I had to see what it was all about and I'm writing something up for this thread now.
    The experiences seem very impressed and and predominantly positive. We'll see. :p

    Kratom withdrawals are terrible. You could compare it to the worst alcohol hangover ever: puking for a whole day, can't keep anything down, dry heaves all around, and your heavy head refuses to remedy the incessant pounding. Just because it's legal to purchase does not mean that it is to be abused!

    A treat; not as a habitual occurrence, but a reward for something special.

    Dose: 6 grams (tea)
    +2h 1 Gram eaten
    +4h 7 Grams (Tea)
    Weight: 215 lbs/97.5 kG

    My pet unicorn just received this TMD Kratom today, and as soon as she got it, she used her unicorn magic to brew it into a tea in some Acidulated water, approximately 2 cups. She let it simmer for 10 minutes, then steep for another 10 before drinking it over a period of 10 minutes.

    Within 20 minutes of the first cup, she felt the effects hit her like a freight train. She couldn't stop smiling, and music sounded so much wider to her. She also felt more comfortable talking to her family members (Who knows she's done various chems in the past), who were oddly accepting of it. She went back into her room, then listened to some Infected Mushroom as the slight speediness faded into a nice body buzz, lasting about an hour.

    She then redosed an hour later with one gram of loose leaf TMD stirred into some applesauce. She got a little speedy effect but was nice and chill. After a while she decided to go and make a nice 7 gram pint of tea, and she's working on finishing it up now, and planning on drinking the grounds with the brew, as she has a strong stomach and can handle rough stuff (She once ate 28 of those Mucinex with 1200 mgs of the Guaifenesin in it and didn't even get nauseous). She is coming up on the next dose, a warmth spreading throughout her. Stay tuned for more info down the line~

    Its not genetically engineered, thats just silly lol.
    Vendors make all sorts of silly claims.
    I would advise people to avoid vendors that come up with nonsense like that and who sell their kratom with silly names like 'superior' or 'Super'

    Unless your vendor has lab reports showing that the exact batch you bought has higher than usual alkaloids then take their claims with a pinch of salt.

    You should have a read of the guide to buying kratom at the top of this forum.

    Welcome to the site BTW :)

    Is there a difference between "Thai maeng Da" and just plain old "Maeng Da" kratom?

    An order of Thai maeng da just came and I notice it is a lot weaker than the Maeng Da I had previously. Note that my previous maeng da kratom did not have "thai" on the label. I'm wondering if it is really just "thai kratom" (dubbed the poor mans Maeng Da.) that I purchased.

    It could be down to you having a higher tolerance now. Maybe take a break for a week or so.
