||(ground / crushed)
Purchased Maeng da kratom from vendor, to compare to Bali powder, resin pies and 15X powder.
1st Experience: 1 heaping tsp stirred in 8oz. hot/boiling water. Noticable energetic buzz after 15-25min. Gradually increasing over next 45-60 min. After that it settled into a more relaxed buzz that lasted another 2+ hrs.
2nd Exp.: 1 Tbs in 8oz. cold water. Same energetic buzz as 1st exp., shortly after drinking (abt. 1/4 to 1/2 cup. No more energy than 1st. but stronger sedating, euphoric effect. More opiate like than 1st. Heavier. Light body load...similar in effect to 1st exp. High lasted total of abt. 4 hrs. Like other kratom causes insomnia, easily interrupted sleep at higher doses despite sedative effect.
Like other kratom causes insomnia, easily interrupted sleep at higher doses despite sedative effect.
Subsequent exp. yielded similar results.
CONCLUSION: Maeng da not significantly different in strength from 15X, more than pies and far more than Bali (have not tried regular Thai). The effects, however, do not differ significantly from the others, except for the initial moderate energy. Quality of high perhaps a touch inferior to resin pies and 15X (personally speaking).
