WHAT IS MAENG DA KRATOM?
To understand Maeng Da, it may be helpful to understand kratom itself. Kratom comes from the mitragyna speciosa trees that are native to Southeast Asia. This tropical tree is part of the coffee family and has been utilized for many centuries. Avid users turn to kratom for the overall balance and wellness support that it offers.
Kratom contains a number of alkaloids, which include Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. These alkaloids work with receptors in the body. It is highly important that you consult your general practitioner before kratom use. They are the only ones that can offer you advice on kratom and if it is right for you.
Kratom comes in many different strains and vein colors. Vein varies include red vein, green vein, yellow vein, and white vein. The list of strains is long but one of the most commonly known varieties of kratom is Maeng Da. Maeng Da originates from Thailand and people there considered it to be a delicacy. Maeng Da has not only been associated with traditions and herbal purposes but also as a refreshment.
This delicate plant prefers the natural environment of the tropical regions of Southeast Asia. These densely forested areas provide the kratom trees with vitamin and nutrient-rich soil, as well as high humidity that allows them to flourish. The perceived potency of the leaves of this plant may be attributed to the location of the trees, as well as the time that the leaves are harvested.
This variety of kratom has much darker leaves. That is a clear factor when wanting to identify Maeng Da Kratom from the other varieties. When these leaves are crushed into Maeng Da Kratom Powder, they turn even darker. Kratom can be taken in a capsule or powdered form.
IS IT KRATOM LEGAL?
While kratom is considered federally legal in the United States, certain states have heavy restrictions on the plant or have deemed it illegal. The DEA currently is having continued debates on the legalities surrounding kratom. In years past, the DEA has classified kratom as a “substance of concern” due to confusion surrounding alkaloid and a lack of research. While a majority of states now classify kratom as a food product, there are still some states that impose legal restrictions on the product.

WHERE DOES MAENG DA COME FROM?
The origins of Maeng Da Kratom are that of Thailand. Those that produce Maeng Da Kratom have to be specialized and aware of how seasonal changes can impact the delicate tree. These trees require a very specific environment, which can only be found naturally in tropical regions of Southeast Asia.
MAKE-UP OF MAENG DA
The active ingredient that is in Maeng Da Kratom, which comes from the leaves, is called mitragynine. Mitragynine is the most abundant alkaloid in kratom. Another active compound is what is known as 7-a hydroxymitragynine. Maeng Da Kratom is known for its potency. It can be used in the pill form, in a capsule, or even brewed as a tea.
WHAT COLOR IS MAENG DA KRATOM?
Maeng Da Kratom can be distinguished by its dark green leaves. When the plant’s leaves are crushed, they turn an even deeper green color. You will find Maeng Da kratom in red vein, yellow vein, white vein, and green vein kratom.
Maeng Da kratom is considered to be a high potency kratom strain. This strain is bred specifically for its enhancing alkaloid properties that other strains may be lacking.

WHICH KRATOM HAS THE MOST ALKALOIDS?
The alkaloid content in kratom leaves can vary, depending on a variety of different factors. These factors include geographical location, time of year, and time of harvest. Even species of the same kratom trees can have varying levels of alkaloids. This may be due to the dry and rainy seasons or when the leaves were last harvested from that tree.
- Mitragynine. The main alkaloid that can be found in the kratom leaf is mitragynine. Mitragynine is regarded as an analgesic.
- Paynantheine. Another alkaloid found in kratom is paynantheine. Limited research has been conducted on this alkaloid.
- Speciogynine. This alkaloid is found in kratom and is the third most abundant.
- 7-hydroxy mitragynine. This alkaloid possesses similar properties to that of mitragynine. However, this is found in much smaller amounts within the kratom leaf.
- Ajmalicine. This alkaloid is antiaggregant and anti-adrenergic.
Over recent years, kratom has become increasingly more attractive for businesses in the farming industry. This follows on the heels of various types of kratom becoming popular, including Maeng Da which is one of the most popular herbs. However, these farmers must understand how delicate kratom is and why they require such a specific environment to yield the best results.
The kratom tree originates from the tropical regions of Southeast Asia. This type of environment is very difficult to recreate or mimic. That is because the jungles of Southeast Asia offer these kratom trees mineral-rich and acidic soil, as well as moist air. Within this region, there are many places for the kratom tree to grow.
HARVESTING THE LEAVES
Once these experienced farmers evaluate the trees and report that the leaves are ripe, they harvest them. The harvesting is typically done by hand to leave the rest of the tree healthy. This allows the tree to grow in preparation for the next harvest on its own. The leaves that are harvested are then dried and ground into a powder. Maeng Da kratom has an extended drying time that is carefully monitored and regulated to make sure the alkaloids have reached their peak before being turned into a powder form.
The powder has now been formed and it is now put into an airtight package. Having it packaged in such a way helps to prevent contamination of the product. Maeng Da has a strong aroma and is a fluffy-like powder.
