White Maeng Da vs Red Bali: Which Is Better?

The market is flooded with all different types of kratom strains. It can be hard for an individual to know which strain is best for them. Today we are going to look at White Maeng Da vs Red Bali. Both of these strains are highly popular. This article will help you understand each strain a little better so you can make the best decision on which to try. 

What Is White Maeng Da Kratom?

Maeng Da originated in Thailand where it translates to Pimp grade. This alone gives you the impression that it is a robust strain. Most Maeng Da products are now harvested in Indonesia and exported to other regions. 

Red Maeng Da is known for its high potency levels, White Maeng Da is well known for its subtle support. While it may not be as potent as the Red vein version of Maeng Da, it is one of the most potent choices in the White Vein family. 

This strain has an impressive alkaloid content which includes Mitragynine, 7-Hydroxymitragynine, Speciogynine, Speciociliatine, and Paynantheine. While some users may think that strains do not bear that much of a difference, this is not true. They will all vary in the wellness support and overall balance that they offer. 

Maeng Da kratom is unique in the fact that it is the product of a grafting process. Skilled farmers first created this strain by grafting Indo and Thai kratom trees. As a result, they were left with a super strain that is now known as Maeng Da. 

White Maeng Da Origins

We briefly mention this above, but White Maeng Da kratom first originated in Thailand. It was here that skilled farmers were able to graft two strains together to make this superior strain. Since this time, Maeng Da can be found in other areas of Asia. Indonesia is a hot spot for this strain and happens to be the largest export hub for kratom. 

Maeng Da Vein Colors

This strain is offered in GreenRedWhite, and Yellow vein colors. Allowing you to choose the support you are seeking. Red vein kratom comes from the most mature leaves, while white vein kratom comes from young leaves. Green vein kratom is at the midpoint of the leaf’s life cycle. Yellow vein kratom is created through a specialized drying process. This type of kratom does not occur naturally. 

White Maeng Da Aroma

Kratom enthusiasts have noted that White Maeng Da kratom has a similar aroma to coffee. This would make sense because the Mitragyna Speciosa trees are related to the coffee plant. So, if you notice your kratom has a hint of coffee smell to it this is the reason why. 

What Is Red Bali Kratom?

Red Bali is a very popular strain in the kratom industry. Red vein kratom is notorious for having high concentrations of alkaloids. After all, this type of kratom is produced using the most mature leaves of the Mitragyna Speciosa trees.

When it comes to naming various strains of kratom they typically take on the vein color and the place in which they originated from. This helps users easily identify with the various strains of kratom on the market. 

So, Red Bali is produced from red vein kratom and originated from Bali. These naming characteristics are not always used. As you can see, Maeng Da is not a place but a word that is often used among Thai natives. 

Red Bali kratom may have originated from Bali but it is now produced in Indonesia and Malaysia. This robust strain has an impressive alkaloid profile which includes mitragynine, 7-hydroxymitragynine, 9-hydroxycorynantheidine, speciogynine, and mitraphylline.

Red Bali Origins

We discuss the origins of Bali above but let’s do a quick recap. Red Bali originally came from the Bali islands. However, it is now also cultivated in Indonesia and Malaysia. Skilled farmers will be able to easily identify the various strains of kratom. While all the leaves may look similar to a consumer, skilled farmers know the small differences between the various strains of kratom plants. 

Bali Vein Color

Bali is offered in all the vein colors, which include redwhitegreen, and yellow. This allows you to choose the type of wellness support that you are seeking. Red Bali tends to be the most popular form of this strain. However, white and green are also heavily sought after.

Red Bali Aroma

Red Bali has a pungent smell. You may get a faint hint of coffee, but most do not find it as pleasing as White Maeng Da. However, all kratom strains are unique in their alkaloids content and this will cause them to vary in the way they appear and smell. 

White Maeng Da Vs Red Bali

Both of these strains are very popular among the kratom community. White Maeng Da is more subtle in the support that it offers. Red Bali is robust and highly sought after in the kratom world. While potency may be a key point it should not be the sole reason why you choose one kratom strain over another. 

Both of these strains are well known and have a place in the kratom world. They offer unique support and only you can choose which strain is best for you. So, if you are looking for subtle support you should try a white strain. For those who need potent support, red is the way to go. 

Do not ever base your kratom strain on other people’s experiences. What is right for them may not be right for you.
