Kratom, or Mitragyna Speciosa, comes from the leaves of a tropical tree related to the coffee plant. It was first grown in Southeast Asia, where it still thrives best naturally due to the perfect weather conditions.
People have taken kratom for centuries to help steady their moods and keep energy levels up. Kratom enthusiasts take the botanical in many different forms. Aside from kratom capsules, it is also popular in powder form, along with a host of new, innovative products. Think flavored taffy, and Top Extracts’ very own Original Kratom Honey Stix! We’re proud of our new innovations, and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon!
For this post, we’ll focus on kratom capsules and answer the questions we get most often, such as:
- What are Maeng Da kratom capsules?
- How many kratom capsules should I take?
- Where can I buy kratom capsules in stores
What Are Maeng Da Kratom Capsules?
Maeng Da comes from Southeast Asia and, like all kratom, starts out as a red leaf. The color it ends up being in the capsule depends on the drying process that the grower uses. A little trivia: Maeng da literally translates to “pimp grade.” People used that term to try to market it as stronger than the other strains, but that’s not entirely true.
The color that comes out in the drying process can tell you a lot about how kratom will affect you. People who want to wind down usually choose a red strain, while people looking for a little more energy often prefer green. Here are a few of the most popular strains:
- Red Maeng Da. Our Red Maeng Da is sourced from Indonesia and, like other reds, is known for its relaxing properties.
- Red Bali. Another strain that may help to aid in relaxation, these capsules contain leaves harvested wild in Bali.
- White Borneo. Sourced from Bali, this white strain of kratom can help you maintain your energy levels.
- Super Green. With an effect that falls between the soothing red and energizing white varietals, Green Malay is sourced from Malaysia.
How Many Kratom Capsules Should I Take?
There aren’t specific guidelines out there for how many kratom capsules to take. Not every distributor is equal; buy kratom capsules from different websites, and you’ll probably notice some big differences in quality. Make sure you buy from a distributor who stands behind their product, and especially one that uses an accredited lab.
When you’re deciding how many kratom capsules to take, it’s a good idea to start with a small dose rather than to taking too many. Always check to see how many grams are in a capsule of kratom (our capsules contain about half a gram, or 500 milligrams). Always start with a small dose, and gradually increase until you find your “sweet spot.”
Because product quality can vary A LOT between distributors, you may notice a more desirable effect from a small dose of capsules from one distributor, and feel nothing from another. Start a little at a time, and take note of how it affects you before you take more.
Where Can I Buy Kratom Capsules?
Depending on the laws of the state you reside in, you can buy kratom capsules in stores or online—or not at all. It’s against the law in certain states to possess it or use it, so be sure to know what the law is where you live.
For those in illegal states, hope is on the horizon! The American Kratom Association is working hard on their cGMP program in order to regulate the herb, i.e. weed out those who may be adulterating it or not taking necessary precautions when selling it.
Where to Buy Kratom in Stores?
In states where kratom is legal, you may find it in smoke shops or in stores where herbal supplements and alternative medicines are sold. However, we strongly suggest getting to know a trusted vendor. Remember that any exceptional vendor will be happy to answer whatever questions you may have. We take pride with this at Top Extracts, and are always here for you!
