The history of Red Maeng Da Kratom
In the world of kratom, Red Maeng Da Kratom is one of the most famous strains available – and one of the kratom strains most commonly used for its energizing and stimulating benefits as opposed to its work as a sedative.
Incredibly popular throughout Southeast Asia (particularly Thailand and Indonesia where the overwhelming majority of Red Maeng Da Kratom strains are grown), in just the last few years Red Maeng Da Kratom has also gained popularity around the world and is now one of the best selling kratom options anywhere on the planet.
Below we break down everything that makes Red Maeng Da Kratom so special, any side effects you should be on the lookout for, and some details regarding Red Maeng Da Kratom dosing that you want to know before you start to try out everything this kratom strain has to offer.
Let’s get into it.
What Makes Red Maeng Da Kratom So Special?
For starters, kratom was “hacked” by our ancient ancestors in Southeast Asia to produce a much more potent, more stimulating strain of kratom than what was traditionally available in the “green vein” options that are a lot more commonplace in this part of the world.
Early farmers of kratom worked to create a high potency strain that really excelled in the humidity and heat of Thailand and Indonesia, creating something similar to Bali Kratom but even more powerful and more impressive.
On top of that, these early farmers really pushed to transform Red Maeng Da Kratom into more of a powerhouse stimulant while negating some of the sedative impacts that other kratom strains were known for. There are some sedative properties in Red Maeng Da Kratom but for the most part, you are going to get a lot of energy, a lot of peps, and a lot of juice when you use Red Maeng Da Kratom on a regular basis.
The last thing you are going to be reaching Red Maeng Da Kratom for is to get a better night’s sleep, that’s for sure!
Just like pretty much every other form of kratom on the market today you are going to be able to flood your body with extra endorphins, those wonderful little “happiness biochemicals” in the body that actually makes you feel fantastic, energized, and excited rather than stressed out, worn down, and worried.
It’s not at all uncommon for people using Red Maeng Da Kratom for the first time to feel like they are a brand-new person almost immediately after consuming their initial dosage. It’s like someone threw open the windows and let the sunlight in a when you try this kratom strain for the very first time.
Best of all, because of the potency of the alkaloids contained within Red Maeng Da Kratom that release these extra endorsements you’re going to get a lot more longevity out of these benefits as well. Just a single daily dosage bright and early in the morning is usually more than enough to keep your mood picture-perfect throughout the day (and well into the night, for that matter).
Another big benefit the Red Maeng Da Kratom strain compared to some of the other options out there is that it is designed to not only provide instant energy increases (both mental and physical energy) but that it is also going to be able to provide consistently high energy levels throughout the day.
Your endurance isn’t necessarily going to be positively impacted by Red Maeng Da Kratom alone, but you’ll find that you have more energy to tackle mental and physical challenges than you would have in the past.
You’ll be more motivated to tackle these harder challenges, you’ll find that your motivation doesn’t dip or wane, and you’ll also find that your overall energy stays consistent throughout the day – without the peaks and valleys that chemical, sugar, and caffeine stimulation bring about.
This is one of the biggest reasons people turn to Red Maeng Da Kratom compared to other strains out there. The stimulating properties are top-tier and fast-acting, but they also last throughout the day to give you that continuous source of renewable energy that will get you through even the longest days of the week without any crashes along the way.
Anti-Stress and Anti-Depressant Benefits
A big part of the anti-stress, anti-anxiety, and anti-depressant properties of Red Maeng Da Kratom are thanks to the flood of endorphins that this 100% all-natural medicine causes, and the other part hands a lot to do with the alkaloid content that stimulates your brain, energizes your mind and your body, and sort of armors yourself against these kinds of negative thoughts and attitudes.
Unlike traditional antidepressants or anti-stress medications that are created in pharmaceutical laboratories (with who knows what in the ingredients list), chemicals that have horrific side effects more often than not, this all-natural medicine isn’t ever going to put your short or long-term health in jeopardy.
Instead, you’ll enjoy anti-stress, anti-anxiety, and anti-depression benefits without any fear or concern of those side effects popping up later down the line. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Pain Killing Properties
The reason that kratom was so rigorously harvested for centuries and centuries in the first place has everything to do with its painkilling capabilities.
Instead of having to worry about over-the-counter medications that may not work to kill the pain that you are dealing with (acute or chronic pain, it makes no difference), or having to worry about all the side effects that prescription medications include, you’re able to eliminate pain with the biochemical release caused by the alkaloids in Red Maeng Da Kratom.
Not only do many consider Red Maeng Da Kratom (and other kratom options) to be an all-natural and effective alternative to traditional painkillers, but many also considered to be particularly useful for those suffering from joint pain and arthritis.
You aren’t necessarily going to be blocking pain receptors in your central nervous system when you use Red Maeng Da Kratom the way you might with some prescription medications. But you’ll get nearly 80% of the same results as those chemical cocktails without any of the downside.
That’s a pretty big trade-off that most would agree is well worth it.
Addiction Withdrawal Help
More research is necessary to understand how (and to what extent) kratom strains like Red Maeng Da Kratom can help those dealing with opiate withdrawal symptoms overcome these challenges without introducing addictive chemicals back into their bloodstream, but the early science and research is already very promising.
There are people all over the world using Red Maeng Da Kratom to combat opioids and addiction withdrawal symptom issues and winning that daily battle time and time again, without negative side effects, without running the risk of a new addiction taking place, and (hopefully) eventually not having to use kratom to fight back against their addiction, either.
Are There Any Red Maeng Da Kratom Side Effects I Should Be Worried About?
There are really only a couple of potential side effects you may have to contend with when you take advantage of any strain of kratom, but particularly Red Maeng Da Kratom.
Some folks find that they urinate more frequently throughout the day after they begin using kratom products than they used to in the past, but others do not report this issue at all. Some find that their appetite is suppressed and that they are dealing with constipation issues, but again this is anything but a universal side effect.
The most common side effects associated with Red Maeng Da Kratom would have to be stomach discomfort, stomach cramps, nausea, sometimes diarrhea, and a dry mouth sensation for about 30 minutes after consuming Red Maeng Da Kratom orally.
Even though side effects are anything but universal, however, and all of them are quite mild.
How Does Red Maeng Da Kratom Dosing Work?
Because Red Maeng Da Kratom is such a powerful kratom strain it’s not a bad idea to start with a very small daily dosage before you ramp things up. You’ll get a chance to see how your body responds to the alkaloids and biochemicals in this all-natural agent with this approach, and you might be surprised to learn that dosages as small as 1 g are more than enough to get you through the day with the help of Red Maeng Da Kratom.
As a general rule, however, pushing your individual daily dosages up to or beyond 6 g is usually not recommended.
You can usually get away with anything under that (within reason) but will always want to listen to your body, be on the lookout for any signs and symptoms of negative side effects, and discontinue using Red Maeng Da Kratom if you find that your health is being negatively impacted because of it.
With so many different kratom strains out there to pick and choose from, all of them aggressively marketed and advertised as being the very best of the best, it can feel like a real uphill battle and challenge to find the right kratom for your needs.
If you’re looking for increased and effortless all-day energy, powerful pain relief and anti-stress/anti-anxiety/anti-depression benefits, and perhaps even an all-natural alternative that can help you kick the addiction and opioid withdrawal symptoms once and for all then Red Maeng Da Kratom might be right up your alley.
