You were probably wondering why the word strain is in quotations. That’s because Super Green Maeng Da isn’t really a strain per se, at least not in the technical sense.
If you’ve searched for the newest or best kratom strains online, you’ve likely seen e-commerce sites advertising Super Green Maeng Da Kratom as a strain. That claim is not wholly accurate and should not be accepted as fact.
This isn’t to say that vendors are being deceitful by calling it a strain. After all, it can be difficult to properly articulate exactly what constitutes a strain, especially in a market that is saturated in specialty goods and signature formulations.
Today’s review will attempt to clarify the difference between Super Green Maeng Da and traditional kratom strains. In the following post, I’ll make some clear distinctions between Premium Maeng Da and the “Super Strain” in question.

As many of our readers already know, Maeng Da AKA Pimp Kratom is derived from Mitragyna speciosa, an evergreen tree that grows in the wilds of Southeast Asia. Maeng Da is a cultivar from the remote forests of Central Borneo.
It is prized for having concentrations of mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine that are significantly higher than other plain leaf strains. This exotic plant matter is widely considered to be the strongest kratom strain on the market, although suppliers have taken pains to formulate more potent kratom products over the last 10+ years.
One such product is Super Green Maeng Da Kratom, a carefully curated blend of Green Maeng Da and White Maeng Da. As I covered in my White Maeng Da strain review, the white vein is an acquired taste with a unique fragrance and an invigorating aroma.
By contrast, Green Maeng Da is more elevating and nootropic in nature. Users have said that it delivers the goods in terms of cognitive activity including heightened awareness and sharpened focus.
This specialty blend is renowned for the relaxation and serenity it reportedly induces. Some vendors have said that “Super” simply refers to the harvesting of oversize leaves, but that’s not the whole story.
If this were 100% true then most sellers would be listing Super Maeng Da as an Elephant kratom strain.
On the contrary, Super Green Maeng Da is a gentle mixture of Green, Red and White Maeng Da Kratom which is green vein dominant. In other words, the majority of the kratom powder consists of Green MD plant matter with a touch of red and white vein kratom powder added during micronization.
According to trusted sources, Super Maeng Da is milled to the point where the finely ground powder is absorbed faster, resulting in a quicker pick-me-up and a longer duration of purported benefits.
Those who have brewed Super Maeng Da Kratom observe the following as the most common effects:
Note: If you are thinking about buying kratom online, you’ll want to know that you’re getting what you’re paying for. Since Super Maeng Da Kratom is usually listed at a higher price point than plain leaf, you should demand proof of its legitimacy.
Be sure to ask for photographs of a fresh batch of kratom powder. Trusted kratom vendors are all too happy to disclose lab results and furnish prospective customers with the information they seek. Super Maeng Da Kratom should be darker in color than your average green vein kratom powder.
Seasoned users have called three to four grams as the ideal recreational dosage for Maeng Da, but this may be too high for a specialty blend like Super MD. Since Super Green Maeng Da contains a small amount of White MD, it will likely be far more animating than your average Maeng Da tea.
For the best results, users should always err on the side of caution and stick to moderate dosages. The following is a general guideline to dosing with Super Maeng Da Kratom:
It bears mentioning that kratom has not been approved for medicinal use by the FDA. Consequently, no claims can be made about this Ayurvedic herb’s purported benefits or the relative safety of the same.
Generally speaking, dosages in excess of eight grams are ill-advised as they may be detrimental to one’s health. Those with preexisting health conditions should consult with a physician prior to brewing kratom tea.
Side effects of M. speciosa may include headache, nausea, dilated pupils, elevated heart rate, liver damage or hallucination.
Little is known about the precise difference between these two strains. That’s because Super Maeng Da Kratom is still new to the botanical marketplace. As such, no scientific studies currently exist.
What we can say is that users are going crazy for this new kratom blend. In the last year alone, I’ve heard countless testimonials about the power and versatility of this distinct mixture.
Like traditional Pimp Kratom, Super Maeng Da is a robust powder with a host of potential effects. Whereas Maeng Da is largely animating, Super Maeng Da is more uplifting and sociable.
I’m always nervous about trying new products, not least because I’ve been burned by many brands in the past. It’s long been my belief that new strains are little more than a cheap and easy marketing ploy.
Despite the horror stories I’ve experienced where new strains are concerned, I know that I owe it to our readers to bring them the realness. With that in mind, I was quick to place an order when PurKratom started stocking Super Green Maeng Da Powder.
PurKratom is a brand that has enjoyed a rich and storied history in the botanical space. They have consistently landed on lists of the top kratom vendors year after year.
After taking just two grams of their Super strain, I felt it come over me in 10 minutes flat. The initial pickup brought the warmth and readiness of Super Green Malay with the improved attentiveness and mental clarity of White Maeng Da.
After three hours, I was astonished to find that my motivation and confidence had not dissipated. What’s more, I didn’t feel sweaty or nauseous as I often feel when I brew MD strains. The powder had a texture akin to baby powder and a flavor that was pleasant enough for a dark green tea.
All things considered, I would rate my experience a four out of five. My only complaint is that it didn’t last nearly as long as I had expected.
On the other hand, a second dosage of 2.5 grams brought me right back to that place of serene sharpness and smooth clarity. Definitely a top shelf burn for a brand new day.
This blend is one super product that deserves to carry its bold moniker. This stuff is as plucky and potent as it is smooth and spirited.
