Maeng Da happens to be the most popular strain of kratom. There are hundreds of kratom strains to choose from, but avid users turn to Maeng Da. This article aims to help you explore this strain and make a decision on whether or not it is a kratom strain you want to try. By the end, you will either be adding Maeng Da to your cart or looking to learn more about other strains.
It’s not completely clear where Maeng Da kratom originates from. However, it is speculated that it was first discovered in Thailand, as the word Maeng Da is Thai for “Pimp Grade.”
While most would look at this translation and consider Maeng Da a strong kratom strain, Thai natives look at its name as a negative aspect. A pimp in Thailand is someone without morals and this is heavily frowned upon in Thai culture.
However, Pimp Grade in the Western World is viewed as edgy and marketing tycoons use this to their advantage.
Maeng Da is a very robust strain that is loved by many. However, you should know that the important part of this strain is the way it is harvested. Maeng Da does not come from one specific kratom tree (Mitragyna speciosa). It is the product of a grafting process. This is where two different strains are joined together to create a unique strain. This provides users with a very robust strain that will help them meet their wellness goals.
The main two alkaloids in Maeng Da Kratom are 7-hydroxymitragynine and mitragynine. The drying process will greatly affect the alkaloid profile. The farmers will harvest the leaves at the most optimal time. They want to ensure they are plucking leaves that are healthy and ripe. They will pinch the leaves from the tree by hand. The drying process is where different strains are created.
It will highly depend on the farmer and the various methods of drying that they use. Some farmers choose to dry their leaves in dark air-conditioned rooms, while others will lay them in the sunlight. It all depends on the strain that is being created as to the drying method they will choose. However, you should know that the drying technique will affect the outcome of the alkaloid profile.
Maeng Da kratom is dried longer than any other strain. Many believe that this is the reason why Maeng Da is so potent and robust. It is given extra time for the alkaloids to form and reach peak potency levels.
Once dried, the veins and stem of the leaves will be removed. The leaf can then be made into a powder. This powder can be sold as is or used to create other kratom products, such as capsules or extracts.
Maeng Da strains can vary from one vendor to the next. It will all depend on what is being used during the grafting stage and how the leaves are dried. So, if you find that one vendor tends to have more potent Maeng Da than another vendor, this may be the reason why. Below we will go over the variety of Maeng Da strains you will find on the market.
White Maeng Da is created using the youngest leaves. It offers more subtle support but is still loved by the kratom community. It is more robust than other white vein strains.

Red Maeng Da is said to be the most potent kratom strain available. It is created with the most mature leaves. The alkaloids have had extra time to mature, which provides a more robust product.
Red Maeng Da Products:
Yellow vein kratom is unique in the fact that it does not occur naturally. It is a product of a specialized drying technique. The leaves will be harvested once they have reached peak maturity. They will then go through a drying and fermentation process. The leaves will be processed in a dark room, which helps keep the integrity of the alkaloids and it also causes the vein to transform to a yellowish hue.
Yellow Maeng Da Products:
