As one of the most potent and high-quality Kratom strains, Maeng Da Kratom traces its roots to Thailand, where the weather conditions favor its growth. However, it is also in other Southeast Asia regions such as Indonesia and Malaysia.
Just like other Kratom strains, this exotic-sounding strain comes in three varieties. That is, White Maeng Da, Green Maeng Da, and Red Maeng Da – all of which are named depending on the color of its Kratom leaf vein.
But what distinguishes Maeng Da Kratom from other strains? Unlike other strains, Maeng Da Kratom is created using a unique processing method known as "grafting."
In this unique horticultural technique, scientists select plant tissues with unique characteristics. The selected Kratom plant tissues then join together to continue their growth and breed a new strain with varying qualities.
In simple terms, the whole grafting process involves making a wound in one of the plants – say a Red vein Kratom plant (that excel in alkaloid-rich soils), and then inserting a bud or scion of the Green Vein plant (which has similar qualities as the Red Vein Kratom) into the already created wound so that each of the plant's tissue can grow together.
Notably, Maeng Da Kratom emphasizes quality. That said, Maeng Da is available in various forms. For example, you can get it in the form of capsules or powder form.
