Essentially, ‘Maeng Da’ is a term that refers to quality. In Thai, the term translates literally to ‘pimp grade’, denoting high quality. As kratom has spread outside of Southeast Asia, the term is still used to refer to kratom with a high alkaloid content.
Maeng Da is a kind of kratom, and you can find Red Maeng Da, Green Maeng Da, or White Maeng Da. Maeng Da kratom was originally grown in Thailand, but nowadays you can find Maeng Da kratom sourced from a variety of places.
Each strain has its own distinct attributes, but these can vary slightly between harvests and growers.
MAENG DA THAI KRATOM POWDER (RED VEIN)
Famous for its deeply relaxing aroma, Red Maeng Da is one of the most popular Kratom strains in existence.
As a high potency strain, Maeng Da delivers a punch.
It brings many of the pain relieving qualities expected of Kratom, but with a much bigger stimulating boost. However, unlike other stimulants, the energy boost doesn’t come with any jittery, unfocused side effects.
MAENG DA THAI KRATOM POWDER (WHITE VEIN)
Like all white strains, it is made from kratom leaf that is harvested early in the growth cycle, and the resulting kratom powder, capsules, and extracts are comparatively high in mitragynine levels.
Maeng Da was specifically created as a high potency red kratom strain in the humidity and heat of Indonesia. Similar to Bali Kratom, Maeng Da blends pain relief and energy into one.
