Maeng Da Kratom

Maeng Da kratom is seen as the grandfather of kratom. It is often seen as being one of the strongest types of kratom on the market and is mainly available in three different types of kratom – green, white and red. White “maeng da” is one of the most popular kratom leaves among newcomers to kratom. 

Maeng Da kratom is a creation of kratom farmers, mainly located in Southeast Asia. The creation of Maeng Da came about by processes like crossbreeding and grafting. The process of grafting of a leaf of kratom to create what is now the Maeng Da strain came from splicing a sapling leaf from one kratom tree and placing it in the same soil at the root base of another plant, thereby creating a hybrid, when the new plant begins to grow.

While it is true that “white maeng da” is one of the most popular kratom strains, it was actually the red strain of “maeng da” that was the first creation of the grafting and crossbreeding process. Red maeng da became known for its extreme potency as a relaxant and anti-anxiety, sleep-inducing medicine. 

The creation of a new type of kratom wasn’t the only goal of those who crossbred and grafted to create Maeng Da, however – like all experiments, there was a niftier end-goal in mind – the creation of a more reliable, heartier, more powerful and larger-leaf kratom tree. Maeng Da ticks all of these boxes for farmers. It provides a much more powerful experience than a regular, old kratom leaf. It produces larger leaves (on average) and is a more reliable grower – hence its availability and popularity among kratom users worldwide.

The aforementioned popularity of Maeng Da stems from its potency, which stems from the volume of mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine found in its chemical makeup. This large volume of these two compounds make it much more potent than many other market options, regardless of the type of kratom leaf from which it is extracted. Green maeng da will have greater effects than regular green kratom, the same is true of red and white maeng da kratom.

What are some of the benefits of Maeng Da kratom?

The benefits of Maeng Da kratom vary, depending on what type of Maeng Da you take and that is determined by what you’re looking for in kratom. Most people who take, for instance, green kratom of any variety are looking for a kickstart to their day. A mood-lifter, an anxiety-reducing and confidence-inducing fix. Conversely, those who take red kratom – of any variety – are probably looking for something entirely different from their kratom experience. Red kratom has calming effects that have been proven to reduce anxiety and stress in the body and allow those who suffer from bouts of insomnia and other sleeping difficulties to actually get a good night’s sleep.

Whether you take red, white, or green, Maeng Da will accentuate the effects of those strains of kratom. Given that it is the byproduct of splicing and mixing and experimentation, Maeng Da will likely produce an accentuated version of the effects of whatever strain it comes from.

Maeng Da is not necessarily a specific type of kratom or strain, it is the result of the process by which it was created. It is not found naturally-occurring, which is what makes it such a powerful option for those seeking something a little extra from their regular doses of kratom.

What dose of Maeng Da should I take?

Given that the primary objective of Maeng Da kratom is to expand the capabilities of whatever type of kratom that it is infused, it would be wise of anyone who doesn’t have a great deal of experience with kratom to tread carefully around the Maeng Da strain.

Start off slowly and microdose your way up to about 5 grams. This doesn’t have to be taken once a day, in fact, depending on your objective with kratom, it may be easier to split the dosages between two types of kratom for a balancing effect – green kratom to wake you up, red kratom to help you sleep at the end of the day. As always, you should start out with a single gram and see what that does for you, then slowly build your way up to about 5, and then stop there. The general rule of thumb with any form of kratom is that 5 grams should be enough to get you where you want to be and anything more than that risks your health.
