    Since i dont know how to make a poll, this will be manual lol
    Whats your favorite kratom powder?
    *Bali
    *Malaysian
    *Thai- Red/Green strains
    *UEI
    If i left anything out please tell me, also if someone could make this a poll i think it will benefit people out there in knowing what type of kratom to buy.
    Also if your going to say this ___ is better than the other please specify that you have had prior experience with each type.

    AW: The best Kratom Powder

    I dont really know what to say, since names dont say much many times and can be just marketing. there is just one species of kratom with two subtypes, the red-veined and the white-veined.
    it can be just marketing.

    Firstly, might I just state, there isn't a particular strain that could be labeled as being the 'best' but instead it's rather all a matter of personal opinion/preference.

    With that being said, a vagabond I once knew preferred the more energetic strains such as the Thai and/or Malaysian. -Although when it comes down to it, all the strains of leaf are acceptable, -as long as it's quality material.

    .peace.

    And of course only use what You told you ( 2nd oopsie, sorry )

    I was blown away by maeng da kratom. tryed some others but none compared. maeng da was active at 1-2grams. extremely potent at 4-5. best bang for your buck

    Please excuse SWIM's post as he has taken a very large dose of alprazolam and he is quite fucked up. :laugh::crazy:cool:

    Anyway, I dont think that there is a definitive best kratom powder, its all a matter of personal preferance.

    The Bali strain offers effects that are relatively sedative in nature, although a low dose will provide stimulating effects. For some, it can cause nausea at higher doses but it is also reported by many to be the most euphoric strain. I believe it is what the 250x is made from, which is my personal favorite. However, plain bali leaf is very weak, so a large dose is required. But "enchanced bali" preperations are avalible, which require a much smaller dose. *(like 2-5 grams)

    The Malaysian strain's spectrum of effects at medium/high doses are very sedating. Its great to take at night. A low dose does offers some stimulation, although malaysian is considered by many to be the most sedating strain. It is slightly stonger than bali. (Dose of super/premium powder: 3-9 grams approx.)

    The Thai strains are quite stimulating and energizing; they go well with coffee on the morning. However, I find thai strains to be the most bitter tasting of them all, surpassing maeng da even. The doseage for thai super premium powder is about 3.5-4-9 grams.


    Maeng da, the newest strain to the kratom market. It translates litterally into "pimp's kratom". It is very stimulating and bitter, but it is active at low doses (2-3 grams will put You in a happy place :) ) This is the only strain that I have actually seen someone get really ill from, with only about 2.5 grams. Like thai, it also goes nicely with morning coffee. SWIM can enjoy this strain but it is his least favorite. Many love it though, as it quite economical for its potency.

    The indonesian strain is similar to a mixture of bali and malaysian. It is sedating to most but stimulating for some. For swim, it is very euphoric and has very minimal nausea. The super premium indo is a tad stronger than malaysian, perfect at 3-7 grams). A lot of people enjoy this strain because it is very relaxing and offers alot of the euphoric qualitites characteristic of bali, sans nausea. From my experience, this seems to be most people favorite strain.

    Also, the UEI is an acronym for Ultra Enchanced Indo. It isnt really a whole kratom powder, it is an extract (although it is technically a powder). Many people love UEI because it is quite strong and comparable to certain opiates (strong body buzz). Um....................oh, also, its quite expensive and will shoot your tolerance through the roof, making anything but extracts feel weak and shitty. I have tried 500 mg of the UEI on an empty stomach and felt absolutely nothing whatsoever, so he dosent use it, but many people love it. UEI is comprised of indo and a small amount of 250x.


    Hope that helps ;)

    I am confused here. It is perfectly legal to both buy and consume Kratom in all but a few Countries, so unless you are in one of those few Countries, which TabuIsMe isn't, what is incriminating about discussing its consumption?

    Yes and this is an international forum. The moderators of the forum do not have the time to go around checking every post and poster and the legal status of a substance in their home country. So we have a simple general rule that we apply to all situations. It may seem over the top to some, but it helps to keep this forum up and running.

    Keep thread on topic please.

    My personal favorite, although not always easy to get hold of, is "Super Sunda". A Sudanese strain that is a little more potent than Maeng Da but on the opposite end of the alkaloid spectrum i.e very sedating, and imo the most similar to Opiates. Dosage is the same as mentioned above re; Maeng Da.

    Extracts like UEI are all well and good, but they ruin your tolerance in a matter of days and i have heard of people spending so much cash on their daily UEI habit, they would be better off financially using heroin.

    SWIM's favorites are Bali and OST, because she finds they find the most euphoria and are the most opiate-like.

    My pet beagle strongly prefers the Maeng Da strain over all others. Packs quite a whollop.

    I've tried Maeng Da, several different Bali's and several Indo's and I swear I can't tell a difference. But as many have said, it effects everyone differently. What I CAN say is that the garbage you may get at your local headshop is just that...garbage.

    I just order 4 oz of maeng da today, and was recommended I start with a 5-7g for my first dose and I will be administering it through making a tea (15 min boil)

    I am having second thoughts after reading some of these comments of it being active at 1-2g and potent at 3-5g? What should I try? Maybe the person recommended the 5-7g due to the fact that I am using the method of making tea...

    i felt no effects with maeng da kratom until i took about 15 grams. it was mild at that point. Kind of like a benedryl or a 5mg vic.

    extremly disappointed with the 15x extract powder.. it's more like 2x at tops. i took about 7 grams of it and i feel close to nothing if anything at all.

    Seems almost pointless. But if someones desperate to relax without taking a benedryl or some nyquil.. then sure.

    countyingula added 3 Minutes and 50 Seconds later...


    15 grams for a similar effect to taking a benedryl. pretty much an expensive and uncomfortable way to get some relax it seems :/ but as always start at small dosages. i started at just 2 g, and increased the dosage thruout the day until i had any noticable effects. from what iv'e read. 25-50 g is a heroic dose. i have my doubts though.

    What kinda experience do you have with opiates and if you have taken any other opiate within 24-36 hours of dosing the Kratom, I has heard it will have much less of an effect.
    Did you take it on an empty stomach? How did you administer it?

    Bad source county. If it takes any more than 10g of plain leaf on an empty stomach it's crap. Should be good w/7.5. source source source. Maeng Da is a nice energetic leaf. Bali is certainly the best deal. I like UEI blends.

    Has anyone ever had any luck with extracts? Between this and another forum that I'm familiar with, nobody seems to have anything positive to say about them.

    There are legit tinctures. I wouldn't recommend going any heavier than a blend of plain leaf and ultra enhanced indo (UEI).
