The two most famous strains of kratom are not less from each other in their popularity and demand but these are entirely different in many aspects.
If one is extremely potent then the other is very strong and powerful.
If one is more long-lasting then the other is more fast-acting.
If one acts as a stimulator then other works as a great pain killer and energy booster. But this is not over, the list of the differences are still remaining that makes them entirely different and clear the misconception of homogeneity between them.
- Difference in Dosage
After analyzing the effects and their duration, the next most important thing is still on its way to discuss. That important point is the difference in the dosage of both strains. The potential and the effects of the specific strain describes the dosage that is required.
If the effects and the potency level is different then the dosage will also be different that might vary from person to person.
Maeng is said to be the strongest strain, so, the strain will start its work even at low dosage. 2 grams of Maeng Da will be enough to experience the visible effects.
New kratom users should start using Maeng Da from 1.5 to 2 grams of dosage as it is considered as low dosage. This strain works more efficiently when taken on an empty stomach.
But with the passage of time and experience, the amount of intake can be increased but slowly not immediately. It can be increased to 10 grams maximum which is the highest level of dosage and risky too.
To kill the severe body pains and to relax the mind and body, a higher amount of Maeng Da is required to be consumed.
The initiating effects of Bali Kratom can be felt at a dosage of 2 to 4 grams. Then a user will be able to feel proper effects. The moderate dosage of Bali Kratom is said to range from 4 to 8 grams.
There is another form of Bali which is Premium Bali and it is a highly potent form of Bali. it requires less amount of dosage, usually from 1 to 1.5 grams, to feel the same effects as Bali Kratom.
- The difference in the Side Effects
In general, there are no side effects of kratom. But only if it is consumed in the right amount which suits a person’s needs. If the dose intake is within limits and proper guidelines then there is no chance of experiencing any side effects.
The extreme high dosage may bring side effects which above 10 grams.
The overdose in case of both strains is different because one is stronger than the other. Moreover, a person might feel some allergic reaction and some side effects like nausea and dizziness when he starts kratom for the first time.
- Prices of both strains
Both strains are not expensive when compared. Some unique and premium strains are higher in prices. Maeng Da and Bali kratom are available in both powder and capsules. These are easily available at online stores at reasonable prices along with fringe benefits like discounts and promotional deals. But the capsules are more expensive than the powder form.
