Maeng Da vs Malay Comparison

June 12, 2018 Articles

It’s hard not to be indecisive when it comes to selecting a kratom strain.


Because there’s just so many unique strains to choose from. Every time you think you’ve heard of everything, along comes another off-shoot of Elephant kratom or Bentuangie to throw you for a loop.

Maeng Da is a mainstay on the product pages of just about every major kratom vendor online. But Super Green Malay is making quite a name for itself as well, easily earning the “Super” that’s attached to it.

So, what’s the difference between these two potent strains and is one better than the other? Let’s get into it!


Ask any devout kratomite and they’ll tell you, picking the kratom that’s right for you can seem like a pain in the ass. There are simply so many varieties available on the Internet. Whether we’re talkin’ yellow vein, green vein, white vein or red vein, there is no shortage of options when it comes to kratom powder and kratom capsules.

Some people spend upwards of a half hour staring at kratom tinctures on a site that sells powerful kratom extracts. How to pick between 10x extract, 20x extract or even 50x extract? It’s maddening!

Luckily, after you read this short guide, you should have a better idea of what you want out of kratom and what these kratom strains might be able to do for you.


Maeng Da remains a bestseller here at Kratom Crazy and we get a bunch of feedback from our customers who claim that it helps them with myriad health problems and social issues. It’s important to note that kratom is not approved for human or animal use by the FDA and we are not suggesting any intended use here.

With that said, I’ve gotta share some of the comments I’ve received about our Maeng Da kratom. Lucy S. from Newark, NJ, said, “Wow! Thanks for the free Maeng Da sample. It was killer!! I haven’t felt this great in a minute! It’s so smooth but stimulating. I love it…..definitely gonna be ordering this one next time.”

Mark Ryan said, “I wanted to let you guys know that I found my last order to be meh awright but the Maeng Da was the best Maeng Da ive come across. Hats off to you, gentlemen. Keep it up..”

We get loads of emails and comments like these from people all over the country and it always kind of surprises us, if for no other reason than we kind of take for granted that we’re able to offer quality Maeng Da at an affordable price. Honestly, we’ve been doing this so long now and dealing with such great people in SE Asia that we sometimes forget how rare it can be to find top notch kratom powder.

But I digress. Maeng Da kratom…what is it good for? Some say, “Absolutely errythang!”

Maeng Da roughly translates as “pimp grade” and that’s pretty much the perfect phrase for it because this stuff is primo kratom. Renowned for its energizing and stimulating effects, Maeng Da has an array of purported benefits and effects.


Get ready for a #humblebrag.


Ugh, so many people dig our Super Green Malay that we struggle to keep it in stock.

Yep, it’s really that good. Super Green Malay is another bestseller that is one bad ass kratom strain. It’s wildly popular among those suffering from behavioral disorders, anxiety or even simple shyness. Super Green Malay has garnered a reputation as the go-to kratom strain for increased sociability, alleviation of stress and a restful night’s sleep.

If Maeng Da is the cool dad who lets you stay up late to eat ice cream and binge watch R-rated movies then Super Green Malay is the doting mom who puts you down for a nap with a warm glass of milk.

It’s not all wine and roses with kratom; as with almost any other substance known to humankind, there is the prospect of people having a bad reaction to kratom. The FDA has issued a warning, informing the public that kratom is considered to be a dangerous substance and one that should not be imbibed by humans.

Some of the potential adverse effects of kratom include the following:

  • Nausea
  • The “wobz” (aka wobbles)
  • Constipation
  • Agitation
  • Sweating
  • Hypertension
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Muscle weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Lethargy
  • Stomach problems
  • Respiratory depression
  • Insomnia


So, to recap: We’ve seen that both Maeng Da and Malay have been used by some as a natural analgesic (pain reliever). They also share the potential for coping with sleep disorders and social anxiety. And they both are popular choices for those looking for some stimulation as all kratom strains come from the coffee family of plants.

We’ve also seen just how they differ from one another. Now, it comes down to the consumer to make select the strain that suits their needs. Good luck and be safe. Happy kbombing, boys and girls!
