How’s it going guys? Today I wanted to talk about Maeng Da and why it’s so popular, and kind of its origins the history of Maeng Da and what you can expect from a maeng da strain that you buy from somewhere. As you know, maeng da is probably one of the most well known types of kratom, there are a few reasons for this:one of the reasons is because it is considered one of the most potent strains of kratom, and it has some pretty interesting effects.
The name maeng da actually means pimp grade, or pimp kratom, it is also the name of a beetle in Thailand, which is one of the other factors. The effects of maeng da are pretty interesting in comparison to other leaves, maeng da is very good for pain relief, but unlike other pain relief strains like borneos, balis and indo strains, it is also rather stimulating as well. maeng da has been traditionally used for endurance, focus and it’s very effective for these things. Another factor that contributes to maeng da’s popularity is its mood lifting effects, maeng da is one of the most euphoric kratom strains; it has been used pretty widely for depression and depending on the strain of maeng da, the tree, it can also be good for anxiety as well. I wanted to talk a little bit about the history of maeng da. I’ve heard some pretty ridiculous conjectures about the history of maeng da, one of the most interesting is that it has, that I’ve heard, people have told me that it’s been genetically modified, now this isn’t true and I don’t think you should listen to anybody who tells you this, because maeng da is similar to almost every other kratom strain.
The most reasonable hypothesis for why maeng da is stronger is because of the area where it is traditionally grown in Thailand. In Thaliand, where the main demographic of people who use kratom in the past has been heavy manual laborers, and because Thailand is a very hot sticky, swampy climate, Maeng Da is perfect because it contributes to pain relief and give the workers and manual laborers the energy that they need, and over time as marketplaces got saturated with kratom, obviously the ones with the most perfect effects for the needs of these workers became the most popular, and over time the maeng da strain was born, just kind of to fulfill these needs.
I wanted to talk a little bit about buying maeng da, because kratom has changed so much and strains have merged as much as they have, it is hard to find genuine maeng da, but it’s not really a problem because there are other strains that have caught up to maeng da in potency and effects, and they can be pretty worth your while. Buying original maeng da is almost impossible, and I cant think of any real vendors who have verified maeng da, because it is such a broad label, but you kind of have to test different vendors and what their strains are like and whether it fits that profile of effects for energy and as far as pain relief.
So, if you guys have any questions or want to ask anything, or have any concerns, just let me know. And that concludes maeng da.
