Maeng Da Kratom


Maeng Da Kratom is a specific strain of kratom, one of the world's most powerful nootropics. Maeng Da is commonly found in Thailand and Malaysia. It differs from other strains of kratom in a number of ways. As most of you already know, there are several disparate strains of kratom which range from red vein kratom to Thai kratom, etc.

The name Maeng Da literally translates as “Pimp's kratom,” which seems appropriate considering it is generally more expensive than other kratom strains. The name is less than 20 years old, but the plant has been in use as a folk medicine for hundreds of years.


  • Maeng Da

  • Red Vein Thai

  • Red Vein Kali

  • Bali

  • White Vein Indo

  • White Vein Thai

Other strains of kratom have been synthesized and additional extracts are available from some vendors online. These include Super Green Malaysian, Ultra Enhanced Indo and Thai Essence.

Maeng Da stands out from other strains because it is of the energizing and stimulating variety with pain killing properties whereas other strains are more euphoric and mimic the effects of opiates.


Many users wonder whether Maeng Da is stronger than other strains of kratom. No definitive studies have been conducted to confirm its strength over other strains, but user experiences suggest that this is most certainly the case.

It contains high levels of 7-Hydroxymitragynine and mitragynine. 7-Hydroxymitragynine is a terpenoid indole alkaloid that has analgesic effects, loaning to Maeng Da's pain killing abilities. Mitragynine, on the other hand, is an indole-based opioid that may have psychoactive properties.

Some have posited that Maeng Da's high concentration of alkaloids makes for faster results compared to other strains. They say that its stimulating effects last longer and that it elicits a “cleaner” feeling. It is said to be the ideal strain for those afflicted with anxiety disorders or for those looking to relieve stress.

It is said that 5-6 grams of Maeng Da may be equal to 9-12 grams of other premium kratom varieties.


Research suggests that a lot of the Maeng Da kratom on the market is not “real” Maeng Da. That is to say that they are “genetically grown” and do not originate from the original Indonesian plantation that was billed as “the first legal kratom plantation.” Apparently, real Maeng Da kratom comes from a mature green vein tree, the Thai strain of kratom.

The reason Maeng Da may be much stronger today than other kratom strains probably owes to the fact that this “genetic” growing process that is now implemented by manufacturers and farmers consists of grafting which often involves creating a hybrid of two different strains.

There are a lot of different Maeng Da kratoms out there, among them the deveined red vein Maeng Da and the wild Malaysian, two rare horned leaf variations. The newer batches of Maeng Da on the market are genetically grown and tend to have substantially higher concentrations of mitragynine which makes them less affordable but very impressive and unique.

What people don't know about Maeng Da is that it was first introduced to the mass market in Southeast Asia because a large portion of their male population work in heavy manual labor positions, toiling in sweltering heat amid swamp-like conditions. Such rough jobs have contributed to kratom's popularity as a pain killer and has helped drive the economy of their farming communities.

The competition among the working class growers resulted in a drive towards producing stronger, more potent leaves. Unfortunately, due to the global word of mouth about kratom and the increasing demand, so many genetically-modified variations have cropped up that Maeng Da is no longer the strongest of the bunch with the strongest being impossible to quantify.


As mentioned earlier, Maeng Da is a powerful stimulant and, as such, it can have many of the side effects associated with other stimulants. These include any or all of the following:

  • Lightheadedness

  • Lethargy

  • Sleeplessness

  • Nausea

  • Dizziness


There are many different Maeng Da kratom varieties readily available online. One of the more popular comes in the form of Maeng Da Thai Kratom Powder. This red vein kratom powder can be purchased from Kraken Kratom at 28 grams for $21.99. Other measurements and pricing are also available.

Many vendors off Maeng Da in supplement form, you can buy them in clear vegetable-based capsules that contain the proper dosage of Maeng Da kratom powder. Several vendors offer capsules including the aforementioned Kraken Kratom as well as, and other generic distributors.


Where you get your Maeng Da from will determine its potency and effectiveness. This mood-enhancing “magical” powder is only awesome if its delivered to you from vendors that care about quality. If the vendor you order from does not offer a money back guarantee, chances are they are not a reputable company.
