Green Maeng Da Product Guide

Green Maeng Da Product Guide

Posted by Laughing Lion Herbs on Dec 10th 2020

Every time you buy kratom online, you’re likely to encounter the phrase “Maeng Da.” This particular type of kratom powder gets talked about so much that some people have started to think of it as its own strain. There are definitely some characteristics that people appreciate in Maeng Da kratom, but the only true strains of kratom are the following three:

  1. Green Vein Kratom
  2. Red Vein Kratom
  3. White Vein Kratom

Within any of those three true strains, you can find Maeng Da kratom. “Maeng Da kratom” translates loosely to “pimp strength kratom” or “premium grade kratom.” In other words, this phrase is about quality more than it is about the specific strain. Kratom enthusiasts often seek out this particular type of kratom powder because they’re interested in its purity. As a result, some kratom companies have started calling some types of kratom powder “Maeng Da kratom” because they want to sell more of it.

To make sure you’re getting what you pay for, learn a little bit more about the types of kratom you can buy online here in the United States. Almost all of the kratom in this country comes to us from Borneo, which is an island in Indonesia. The South Kalamantarian region of Borneo has an environment that’s perfect for growing Mitragyna speciose trees. The leaves of those trees are dried and ground to create kratom powder.

The Mitragyna speciosa tree can actually flourish in all types of rainforests, but many of the best kratom farmers and exporters are in Borneo, which is why we do business there. Even as many of the trees grow to be 100 feet tall, only the healthiest leaves are harvested for Maeng Da kratom powder. By choosing the finest leaves possible and picking them by hand, the farmers are able to ensure that they’re producing a certain quality of premium kratom.

There is always some variation between different batches of natural products. The actual kratom powder will be different depending on where it grows, when it is harvested, and how it gets handled between the harvest and the time it arrives at your door. Kratom enthusiasts normally trust that Maeng Da kratom powder will have the strongest alkaloid profile, which is why it’s considered to be so desirable.

Green Maeng Da Kratom Alkaloids

Here in the United States, kratom powder from the Mitragyna speciosa tree leaves is sold for educational purposes. Most kratom researchers and individuals who study kratom are doing so because they want to learn more about the alkaloids in kratom. These natural, plant-based organic compounds are known or believed to produce physiological effects in humans or other animals. As we learn more about kratom’s potential effects, it’s becoming apparent why so many people are excited about the Mitragyna speciosa tree.

The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association has published information from researchers who made some especially exciting realizations about kratom alkaloids. Specifically, they found that these organic compounds in kratom can interact with multiple opioid receptors in the human body. Many hope that the natural alkaloids in kratom may be able to perform some of the same functions as anti-inflammatory and analgesic pharmaceutical drugs. Common examples of such drugs include all of the following:

  • Fentanyl
  • Ibuprofen
  • Oxycodone
  • Tramadol
  • Anesthesia Medications

The potential to explore a natural alternative to potentially dangerous drugs has inspired many researchers to study kratom alkaloids. The two most popular of the organic compounds in kratom are mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine (which only appears after the drying process and is not present in fresh leaf). When you buy green Maeng Da kratom, it will contain more mitragynine than 7-hydroxymitragynine (or 7-HO), though both alkaloids will be represented. According to the study above, mitragynine interacts with delta, kappa, and mu-opioid receptors in the human body. 7-HO is present in hundredths of a percent (usually less than 0.02%)

While mitragynine is certainly exciting, the 7-hydroxymitragynine in green Maeng Da kratom is present in tiny amounts almost undetectable. Scientists published by the American Osteopathic Organization have concluded that this alkaloid has a “13- and 46-fold higher potency than morphine and mitragynine, respectively.” This is huge news for members of the scientific community, and it gives hope to the many people who advocate for legal kratom in the United States. This alkaloid’s biological structure is also said to bind quickly with chemical receivers in the human body, which makes it especially interesting.

Types of Green Maeng Da Kratom

Here at Laughing Lion Herbs, we offer two types of green Maeng Da kratom:

  1. Plantation Grown Super Green Maeng Da Kratom – This type of green Maeng Da kratom is grown and farmed on plantations. This is appealing because the process of growing kratom on a plantation gives farmers more control over the plant. They can guide the plants and make sure they receive all of the water and nutrients required to grow as strong as possible. It’s also possible to keep an eye on pests or anything else that could threaten the Mitragyna speciosa trees. As a result, this type of green Maeng Da kratom can develop healthy levels of alkaloids.
  2. Premium Green Maeng Da Organic Kratom – This type of kratom is desirable for people who want the most natural kratom they can find. It grows in the old forests of Indonesia, and all of the leaves are harvested from wild trees. When you buy our organic Maeng Da kratom, none of the leaves come from plantations or farms. The natural leaves are dried using only the sun and hot air, leading to a very natural product with a lot of alkaloids.

Green Maeng Da kratom is said to have some of the best alkaloid levels available, which is why it’s one of our most popular types of kratom. It’s right up there with red Maeng Da kratom powder in terms of popularity, which is saying a lot. Some people say this is the best type of kratom powder because red vein Maeng Da kratom has a little bit too much 7-hydroxymitragynine for your liking. If that sounds like your impression of red vein kratom powder, examining green Maeng Da may be more interesting to you.

When considering the three true strains of kratom powder, it’s normally said that red vein kratom has the most 7-hydroxymitragynine, and white vein kratom powder has the least. Green vein kratom powder is right in the middle, then, and some people say that makes it the most balanced type of kratom. Since Maeng Da is renowned for its quality, purity, and alkaloid levels, this typically makes it the best selling kratom powder among those who want to find a green vein option.
