The red Maeng da strain is a mixture of 40% white and 60% red vein plants in the south of Brunei in Indonesia. The blend of white and red vein plants has created a new strain that offers the best of both worlds. It is a powerful strain. If you are a beginner take small doses and if you are switching to Red Maeng Da, prepare yourself for an adjustment. This is because it has a higher ratio of 7-hydroxy mitragynine to mitragynine, which is thought to be responsible for its painkilling properties.
The White Maeng Da is a mixture of the two strains, with the majority being White Vein Kratom (70%) and green vein Kratom (30%). The effects are more potent than Green Vein Kratom but not as much as Red Vein Kratom. White Maeng Da not only promotes mental alertness and physical energy but also stimulates the mind and helps to focus.
The most popular variety is red vein maeng da kratom because it is more stimulating than other varieties. It is said to have an effect that resembles coffee without the jitters of caffeine. Yellow maeng da kratom, on the other hand, has more of a sedative effect that is similar to opium without addictive qualities. The high alkaloid concentration in yellow maeng da kratom has been attributed to its growing environment and how it is processed.
