As a plant native to Southeast Asia, Maeng Da is one of the most well known and popular Kratom strains harvested from only the most mature leaves. Over the years, the words “Maeng Da” have translated into multiple meanings but most commonly known as pimp grade, or pimp Kratom. True Maeng Da Kratom is sourced from mature leaves resulting in a higher alkaloid content, mostly mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. Some say that Maeng Da leaves are the result of white and green-veined trees being bred together, resulting in a plant containing the best effects of each strain.
Red Maeng Da is known as one of the most powerful and popular Maeng Da strains. Red vein leaves have a natural analgesic effect but seem to work wonders at lower amounts than some of the other strains. It has higher levels of 7-hydroxymitragynine, which aids in not only the analgesic effect but can product a calming and relaxing feeling with a slight energetic side.
White Maeng Da is a quick acting strain focusing on energy and mental alertness with the added bonus of an analgesic effect. The effects usually show themselves pretty quickly after about 15-20 minutes and typically last about 5-7 hours for most. Its great for an additional mood boost, resulting in an increased feeling of happiness and well-being.
Green Maeng Da is unlike any other strain. While still popular, it doesn’t get as much recognition as the white and red Maeng Da. It really shouldn’t be overlooked since it contains some of the best noted benefits from the white and red strains, but with the added effect of peaceful energy and an increased social aspect. It’s incredibly smooth, and a great middle road between the red and white.
Whether you’re a seasoned Kratom connoisseur or just testing the waters, Maeng Da varieties are strains not to be missed, and a great addition to any Kratom collection.
