White Maeng Da offers the best of the Maeng Da strains and the white-veined kratom combined. This makes it a common choice for avid kratom users. This particular strain is easily accessed in capsules that are great for on-the-go use.
Kratom products come from the leaves of the Mitragyna speciosa tree, a distant cousin to the coffee plant. This tree grows in Southeast Asia where the hot and humid weather provides nutrient-rich soil. The White Maeng Da strain gets its name from the white-veined kratom used to make it. While most strains are named based on where they are grown, this strain is made from a specialized drying and grafting technique to be called the Maeng Da.
Strains of Kratom
Kratom can be harvested during the early stages of its life cycle when it has a white vein running down the middle. As the leaves age, the vein darkens; it turns to a green vein at the midpoint and then a reddish color when it reaches peak maturity. While maturing, it changes the properties of the leaves, increasing the alkaloid content and changing them.
White-veined kratom is harvested at the earliest point. These leaves have a very light-colored vein that runs through the leaves and contributes to their name. Once harvested, the leaves are washed with fresh water and hung to dry. The drying process can occur in or out of direct sunlight. Whether they hang the leaves to dry in the sun or not changes the alkaloid profile the leaves take on. Harvesting the leaves and allowing them to dry, stops the maturation process. This locks in the alkaloid profile. The leaves can then be used to make powders or placed into capsules.
Maeng Da strains are grown across Southeast Asia where the plant thrives. This particular strain differs from other kratom strains as its name does not come from where it is grown, but instead is named based on the techniques used to make it. Maeng Da is made from a specialized grafting technique, which translated from Thai means “pimp grade” in English. While the strain originated in Thailand, it has been spread across the region due to its popularity and high demand. This particular strain is well known for its potency and is one of the most popular strains of kratom on the market.

Red and Green Maeng Da
Maeng Da kratom also comes in green and red strains. These offer different alkaloid profiles as the leaves have been left to mature for longer times. The Maeng Da still has the specialized grafting techniques that offer a unique potency that many kratom users seek. The Maeng Da strains are some of the most popular that the kratom market has to offer. It is mostly due to their robust alkaloid profiles.
Capsules are a great choice for kratom users who want to have the discretion of the capsule, don’t want to measure out their products for each use, or by personal preference. Using a size 00 capsule, you can ensure that you will receive a more precise dose than if measured at home. Every 00 capsules contain 1 gram of kratom powder that is sealed and easy to transport.
Many kratom users choose the capsule for these reasons as an alternative or in addition to the powdered form. These are premade, discreet, and easy to take on the go with you. This makes capsules a top choice among those who are seeking an alternative to powder.
