Although kratom is often shrouded in mystery, we’re here to pull back the curtain and give you an inside look at what White Maeng Da Kratom is, where it comes from, its effects, and why so many people love this strain.
White Maeng Da Kratom: a bit of history
Kratom has been used for centuries as a mood enhancer, energy booster, pain reliever and more. In Southeast medicine and cultures, kratom has long been revered for its potent properties and ability to uplift the user’s spirits.
Only recently has western culture began to take kratom mainstream. Today, nearly 15 million in the US alone use kratom for a wide range of purposes.
But what about White Maeng Da Kratom?
Where Does Maeng Da Kratom Come From?
White Maeng Da Kratom is a special strain (or ‘vein’) of kratom that is known for its potency and energizing effects. Its name comes from the traditional Thai word for ‘pimp’ or ‘pimp grade’, eluding to its powerful effects on the user.
Originating in Thailand, Maeng Da Kratom has spread throughout Malaysia and Indonesia, with exports making it available worldwide for people to enjoy.
How is White Maeng Da Kratom Made?
All kratom comes from the processed leaves of the Mitragyna Speciosa tree. This tree, native to Southeast Asia, produces a variety of naturally occurring alkaloids. These alkaloids, concentrated in the leaves, are known to produce a range of physiological and psychostimulatory effects.
Despite all kratom coming from the same species of tree, there are a few major differences that make White Maeng Da so special.
Each of the Following Influences the Production and Concentration of Alkaloids:
1. Climate – Thailand’s unique climate, blending heat and humidity
2. Nutrients/soil composition
3. When and how the leaves are harvested
4. How the leaves are processed
When it comes to White Maeng Da Kratom, the leaves necessary are harvested by hand early on in their maturation cycles. Care is taken to pick only the healthiest and best leaves. Once harvested, the leaves are dried indoors, away from any light (both natural and lamplight). This results in a lighter colored kratom, and reduces any oxidation that may be caused by UV rays.
What Are the Effects of White Maeng Da Kratom?
Research has demonstrated that kratom’s effects can vary wildly depending on the dose and type. However, people who use white maeng da kratom often report that it is among the most energizing of strains.
Some alkaloids in kratom have been shown to elicit a stimulatory effect, especially at low doses, and it is this effect which seems to shine through the most with this vein of kratom. Some users even prefer it over their morning and afternoon coffee ‘pick me up’.
However, white maeng da kratom is also thought to be among the strongest varieties, which makes dosing a challenge for new users.
Other Purported Effects By Users Include:
- Elevated mood
- Enhanced outlook on the day/life
- Uplifted feeling
- Fucus and clarity
When it comes to getting things done and feeling great about it, this is the strain of kratom users tend to flock to.
