Red Maeng Da Kratom
A Potent and Effective herb renowned for its many benefits
Hailing from the jungles of Thailand comes Red Maeng Da Kratom, a strain of kratom notable for its potency, aroma and effects.
For these reasons, Red Maeng Da is one of the most popular strains of kratom on the market, with millions of individuals worldwide enjoying the plant and powder. Be it in capsule or powder form, Red Maeng Da has a lot to offer.
Where is Red Maeng Da Grown?
This strain of kratom comes from the Mitragyna Speciosa trees grown throughout Southeast Asia, with this particular strain coming from trees mostly found throughout Thailand. Thailand’s unique weather patterns, heat, humidity and jungle soil all contribute to the development of trees producing a unique concentration of naturally occurring alkaloids. These alkaloids are thought to be the major compounds responsible for the plant’s effects when consumed.
How is Red Maeng Da Cultivated?
Mitragyna Trees require a constant watchful eye, with local farmers possessing knowledge passed down through generations. This experience, combined with good old fashioned hard work, results in a crop of healthy plants that produce a consistent crop of leaves from which kratom is eventually made.
How are the Leaves Harvested?
Similar to growing the tree itself, harvesting the leaves is a process that blends experience, art and science. The leaves used to make Red Maeng Da Kratom are large and wide, coming to a point at its narrowest tip. The leaves harvested to make this particular strain or ‘vein’, are carefully monitored and hand-selected for health and quality.
Each leaf will have red ‘veins’ on its underside, hence the name ‘red vein kratom’. This color is indicative of both the maturity of the leaf, as well as the unique combination and concentration of alkaloids present.
The red-veined leaves needed for Red Maeng Da kratom are usually harvested during the tree’s initial growth spurt, brought on by heavy rains following the dry season.
What Makes Red Maeng Da Kratom so Potent?
Although the leaves from which this strain of kratom is made contain several dozen alkaloids, it is two that are especially potent and present in higher concentrations in this red-veined variety.
During the dry season, the Mitragyna Speciosa tree slows its growth cycle. This results in alkaloids building up and increasing in concentration. When the rainy season (growth season) comes, these alkaloids are deposited in the leaves, initially presenting with an increased redness in the veins of these leaves.
One such alkaloid, thought to be responsible for the majority of the strain’s effects, is Mitragynine. Overall, this alkaloid represents around 66% of the plant’s total alkaloid concentration.
Other Alkaloids Commonly Present in Red Maeng Da
Speciogynine – The third most abundant alkaloid overall, this compound has demonstrated potential as a muscle relaxant in scientific literature.
Speciociliatine – Shown in scientific literature to act as an opioid agonist, this alkaloid is present in only small amounts ranging between 0.8-1%.
Paynantheine – Has shown promise in studies as a potential smooth muscle relaxer, and is present in concentrations ranging between 8.5-9% of total alkaloids, making it the second-highest concentrated alkaloid in the profile.
Trace Alkaloids: other alkaloids present, albeit in smaller concentrations and arguably producing much lower effects are (C9) methoxy-oxindoles, aj ajmalicine, traces of, and traces of other indoles.
What Are the Effects of Red Maeng Da Kratom?
The effects of Red Maeng Da, as with any other kratom strain, are dose and user-dependent. This is a particularly strong strain, with moderate to higher doses said to elicit a relaxed, sedative state.
Users who consume low doses of the strain often report an energizing effect. In fact, kratom was first used to increase energy, improve mood, and keep workers motivated in the hot summer fields of Southeast Asia.
Other Reported Effects By Users Include:
- Uplifted mood and spirit
- Better perceived outlook on the day and life
- Deep relaxation and reduction of stress
- Improved focus and motivation
Strains from the same vein (although different regions and growing conditions) that have similar but unique effects of their own include:
- Red Bali Kratom
- Red Borneo
- Red Hulu
- Red Bentuangie
Two Other Strains NOT of the Red-Veined Variety that Red Kratom Users Often Enjoy for Their Similar Alkaloid Profiles (but in differing concentrations) Include:
- Green Maeng Da Capsules
- White Maeng Da Capsules
Why The Kratom Connection?
Although kratom has long been a staple herb in Southeastern Asia, used for generations as a natural botanical for both energy and relaxation as well as stress relief, it is a relative newcomer to Western nations.
With most businesses selling kratom being small mom and pop operations, little is often employed in the way of quality assurance and third-party testing to ensure quality, safety and potency.
At the Kratom Connection, we work directly with farmers, controlling the product quality from cultivation and harvesting, direct to your doorstep. As a leader in the kratom industry, we set the standard for quality products exceptionally high, utilizing third-party lab testing to ensure each product on our shelves not only meets your expectations but exceeds them.
