Maeng Da Kratom: Taking A Closer Look

Are you a big fan of Kratom? Have you ever tried a Maeng Da strain before? Among the many types of Kratom that there are on the market today, Maeng Da is one of the most well-known strains. In fact, you’ve probably even seen the several different strains we sell here at Kraken.

But, what is it about this strain that makes it unique, and why do so many people seem to swear by it?

Today, we’re going to take a deep dive into Maeng Da Kratom and look at what makes this strain so popular. Then, we’ll talk about the different varieties you can find here at Kraken and why we think you should give them a try.

What Is Maeng Da Kratom?

Maeng Da Kratom is a strain that originally comes from Thailand. The name Maeng Da can be roughly translated to “pimp grade,” but it’s likely that this name was given to the strain to reflect its superior and desirable quality.

Why is this?

Thailand is one of the countries where Kratom grows natively, and it has been used in the region for centuries. As Kratom began to grow in popularity again in Thailand and worldwide, vendors recognized early on the superior quality product that was associated with Thailand. This is why they thought about the name and decided to link it back to Thailand with the phrase Maeng Da, loosely based on Thai slang.

Maeng Da doesn’t have to come from a specific region, but most is harvested from a blend of Thai and Indonesian Kratom. In some cases, strains with this name are crafted from a mix of the best Kratom leaves in the region.

Are All Maeng Da Strains The Same?

No. There is not one singular farm where Maeng Da Kratom is harvested. In fact, many different strains of Kratom processed by different companies are given this name. The name originated in Thailand but is used within the industry to designate both quality and alkaloid concentration more than origin in most cases.

Vendors will often indicate where the strains originate from when listing various Maeng Da strains, and some strains may even combine leaves from different farms and jungles to create strong, proprietary blends. These blends are often more powerful or interesting than straightforward Maeng Da options.

What Color Is Maeng Da Kratom?

Like many Kratom strains, this strain is available in red, white, yellow, and even green varieties. This is because the color of Kratom isn’t strictly developed by the tree it grows on but also by when it is harvested and processed.

Red veins, for example, are left to dry outside for a long time to develop the alkaloids very deeply. On the other hand, white veins are not dried for very long and typically are dried under artificial lights rather than outside. These differences in processing cause different types of coloration changes that lead to a variety of Maeng Da Kratom strains.

Why Do People Like Maeng Da Kratom?

Often, you will read Kratom users talk about how much they enjoy Maeng Da. Many will even say that they like it better than any other strains, without exception. What is it about this specific strain that causes it to stand out?

At the base level, most Maeng Da strains have higher alkaloid content than many other Kratom strains. Alkaloids are the compounds primarily responsible for the way Kratom interacts with the body.

However, this also means that beginners might need to start with smaller serving sizes than they are used to. Additionally, some find that the white and green veins from Maeng Da Kratom are much more gentle since they have lower or more balanced alkaloid profiles than the red vein.

Where Should I Buy Maeng Da Kratom?

If you’re interested in experiencing Maeng Da Kratom for yourself, you might not be sure where to start. No matter where you buy from, it is essential that you do some research before clicking the buy button.

Not all Kratom vendors have your best interests in mind. Be sure that any company you choose to support properly vets their suppliers, tests their products, and packages their products in a GMP compliant facility.
