Green Maeng Da kratom is one of the most popular strains in the kratom world. This article is your guide to kratom strains in general, which explains what makes Green Maeng Da kratom one of the most unique kratom strains you would ever find.
First, you must understand that there are two ways by which kratom strains are named. One is by the color of the vein of the leaves while the second is by a particular attribute of the strain itself. All of these are explained in the sections below, leading to our examination of Green Maeng Da kratom.
1. Color of Leaf vein
Kratom leaves don’t need to mature fully before they are ‘ripe’ for harvesting. That means kratom can be harvested at different stages. The color of the veins of these leaves also changes as they mature. That’s how we get kratom named by colors such as white, red, green, and even yellow. The first three are the most common and many would even omit yellow-veined kratom from their list of kratom strains. While green kratom is our focus here (particularly, Green Maeng Da kratom), we will explore the different types of kratom strains so that you may fully understand what makes the difference here.
Kratom leaves have white veins when they are at the early stages of their maturity. When they are harvested at this stage, they are referred to as white-veined kratom strains. Usually, the leaves of this strain are stored and dried indoors, where it’s dark.
As kratom leaves age, the white veins give way for green veins, matching the full color of the leaves. Kratom leaves at this stage have not fully matured yet but they are not premature either. These mid-growth kratom leaves have a two-stage drying process. First, they are stored and dried indoors, away from sunlight. Soon afterward, they are taken outside to dry under full sunlight, completing the drying process.
Leaves of fully mature kratom plants have red veins. These leaves can be stored and dried indoors or outdoors as the producer wishes, but UV (ultraviolet) light must be available. If dried outdoors, the light from the sun is enough. If stored indoors, then one has to make use of artificial UV light.
Yellow-veined kratom strains are the newest and least popular kratom strains. Some think that the leaves of kratom plants in this stage were harvested when the plant is post-maturity and the leaves have turned yellow. However, that is not always the case. Usually, yellow-veined kratom strains are not literally named, but instead are used to refer to hybrids of other strains.
2. Cultivation Attributes
There is one more feature that comes to play in naming kratom strains. That is the cultivation attribute, of which the most common is location. For example, the Red Borneo kratom strain means that kratom was gotten from yellow-veined kratom leaves which were cultivated in Borneo island. But location is not the only attribute by which kratom is named. For instance, Maeng da is not a location and the same applies to ‘Elephant’ and ‘Dragon’, which are all kratom strains. So, what is the stand out feature of each of these kratom strains?
a. Bali kratom:
Apparently, this is a kratom strain originating from Bali, the prominent Indonesian island that is perhaps the most popular tourist destination in Southeast Asia. Note, though, that not all Bali kratom strains are cultivated in Bali. The name tag is because of the Bali port through which the leaves are transported. Some ‘Bali’ kratom may have actually been cultivated in surrounding lands in the region.
b. Borneo kratom:
Borneo, after which this kratom is named is the third-largest island in the world and the largest island in Asia. It stretches over three countries namely Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei.
c. Indo kratom:
Kratom plants that come from every other part of Indonesia are named Indo kratom. Indonesia is the most popular location for kratom cultivation and export.
d. Vietnam kratom:
Outside Indonesia, the most popular kratom strain you would find come from Vietnam and is rightly named Vietnam kratom. Most of the plants are cultivated in the forests lying along the Bassac River, which flows on the outskirts of Long Xuyen, a major city in Vietnam. Other plants may come from the forests along the Mekong river.
e. Elephant kratom:
This kratom is named after a specific feature of the plant itself: its massive drooping leaves. Because the leaves resemble an elephant’s ears, people decided to refer to the strain as Elephant kratom. The kratom plants in this strain are cultivated in the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
f. Malay kratom:
Obviously, kratom plants in this strain come from Malaysia. And the most popular sub-strain in this category is the Super Green Malay.
Maeng Da kratom
Now to the major point of this article: Maeng Da kratom. 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 a 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, Green 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.
