White Maeng Da kratom is a popular and very unique kratom strain. This article is your guide to kratom strains in general, which explains what makes White Maeng Da kratom one of the most unique kratom strains you would ever find.
1. Color of Leaf vein
As far as kratom is concerned, there is no ‘ripe’ stage. The leaves can be harvested at any stage of their maturity and processed. But as the leaves mature, the color of the veins changes on the outside, while its alkaloid composition also undergoes a transformation on the inside. Since we can’t physically assess the alkaloid composition by just looking at the leaves, kratom strains are categorized by the color of the veins of the leaves, of which the three possibilities are red, green, and white. Mind you, there is an emerging strain of kratom named ‘yellow’ but it requires a special process and is unlike the major strains. So many vendors and posts usually omit it. We shall consider the three different strains to help you understand how they are different, besides the color of the veins of the leaves, of course.
The veins of fully matured kratom leaves appear red. The key factor in storing these leaves is UV light. There must be abundant sunlight when they are stored and so they are usually stored outdoors. However, they can be stored indoors too, only if there is a source of artificial UV light.
The color white generally represents innocence. So it is for kratom too. White-veined kratom strains are at their earliest stages of maturity. Unlike red-veined strains, they must be stored indoors, in complete darkness. They are rather averse to light.
These kratom strains are the ones in the exact middle. Neither white nor red, they have bright green veins. These leaves must have not fully matured yet but they are mature enough already anyway. Green-veined kratom strains maintain a balance between red-veined and white-veined strains in color, effects, and storage requirements. Storage and drying are in two stages. First, indoors, away from all light. And later, outdoors, under full sunlight.
The newest of all, yellow kratom is not actually named because of the yellow veins of the leaves. Usually, what is called yellow kratom is a hybrid of other kratom strains.
2. Cultivation Attributes
Kratom strains are not named by color alone. For one, color alone does not explain the reason for the name ‘White Maeng Da’. The other important factor in naming kratom strains is cultivation attributes such as location (the most common) or any other feature (such as the strain of the leaves). The Red Bali kratom strain, for instance, comes from the red-veined variety of kratom cultivated in Bali. For some other strains such as Maeng Da, Elephant, and Bentanguie, location does not matter. So, what really matters for each of the popular Kratom strains, and why does Maeng Da stand out?
a. Bali kratom:
Perhaps the most popular kratom, a title fitting of a strain originating from the most popular tourist destination in Southeast Asia. Bali kratom does not necessarily refer to kratom cultivated in Bali alone. Others are cultivated in surrounding regions. But since Bali is the main export for kratom in the area, they are all called Bali kratom.
b. Borneo kratom:
The massive island of Borneo extends over three countries, which are Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei. It is the third-largest island in the world and the largest island in Asia.
c. Vietnam kratom:
This is the most popular kratom coming from outside Indonesia. All kratom strains cultivated in this tiny country are named Vietnam kratom. Most of the plants come from a small region though. That’s the forest along the Bassac River, flowing on the outskirts of Long Xuyen, a major Vietnamese city. Others come from forests surrounding the Mekong River.
d. Elephant kratom:
The stand-out feature of this kratom strains is the large drooping leaves that resemble the ears of an elephant. Hence, it is aptly named Elephant kratom. This type of kratom is mostly found in Sumatra, an Indonesian island.
Dragon is a Thailand strain of kratom but it is more affordable than the usual Thai kratom. Price asides, it is a high-quality kratom with a much sought-after coffee-like experience.
This is one of the rarest kratom strains. It is so named because of the unique method by which it is produced: fermentation of the leaves. It is a new kratom strain that has quickly ascended the ladder of kratom excellence.
White Maeng Da kratom
Maeng Da kratom or more specifically, White Maeng Da kratom is the focus of this article. Maeng Da kratom is perhaps the most unique of kratom strains. Little wonder demand for it is high, despite it being in short supply. It is a worthwhile strain that every kratom buyer should try out at least once in their lifetime.
What is so unique about Maeng Da kratom? This kratom strain does not occur naturally. Maeng Da kratom is neither named after its location (like Vietnam kratom) nor after a physical feature (like Elephant kratom). Instead, it is unique because of the specific way it is created: grafting. Maeng Da kratom has a higher concentration of alkaloids than other strains, making it more efficient in its effects.
Maeng Da kratom originally originates from Thailand and it is a very ancient strain. One might think, why ‘Maeng Da’ and not any other name? The words ‘Maeng Da’ means pimp grade and it is slang used to refer to any product that is of very high quality. Maeng Da kratom is the kind of kratom strain that is sure to give you the utmost satisfaction.
And what about the ‘green’ factor. Remember that it has been mentioned that green kratom strains are usually harvested mid-growth. Well, that means they have moderate effects, creating a balance between the effects of white kratom and red kratom. Therefore, White Maeng Da kratom would be a super-efficient kratom strain with moderate effects. It is no longer hard to see why this strain is popular among kratom enthusiasts. It’s indeed one of the best around.
