Maeng Da has the most eye-catching name in the kratom industry…especially if you speak some Thai. Interestingly, this kratom strain roughly translates to “pimp” in Thai, which supposedly refers to Maeng Da’s super pungent aromatics. With a name that salacious, is it any wonder so many customers can’t wait to get their hands on Maeng Da powder?
While Maeng Da’s marketing helps draw in new customers, the quality of this hybrid keeps bringing people back. Maeng Da kratom has a particular chemical consistency thanks to a unique Indonesian grafting technique. Only a few master kratom cultivators know the exact proportions to make authentic Red, White, and Green Maeng Da powders.
Customers who want exceptional Maeng Da powder need to work with kratom vendors with solid relationships with these select Indonesian farms. The Golden Monk sources our Maeng Da directly from master Indonesian cultivators. Customers curious about Maeng Da kratom will find plenty of high-grade powders and capsules on our site.
What Is The Best Maeng Da Kratom?
Although the term “Maeng Da” is Thai, most accounts of the Maeng Da strain suggest it originated in Indonesia. Interestingly, Maeng Da kratom isn’t a “single strain.” Technically, Maeng Da kratom strains contain specific percentages of various kratom leaves. Indonesian farmers must use a special grafting technique with different kratom varieties to create their final products.
It’s also significant to mention that “Maeng Da” doesn’t refer to just one kratom vein color. People could find Maeng Da kratom cultivars in the red vein kratom powder, white vein, and green vein families. However, unlike other kratom strains, please remember the vein color associated with your Maeng Da isn’t related to a “Maeng Da” plant. Instead, cultivators use a unique blend of red, white, yellow Maeng Da, or green kratom strains typical to the Maeng Da mix.
Since making Maeng Da is a trade secret, there’s little known about how farmers go about the grafting process. All that we know is that authentic Maeng Da comes from a few historic Indonesian farms. Please double-check that any Maeng Da kratom powder you order comes from a reputable vendor who works directly with Indonesian cultivators.
What Makes Green Maeng Da Kratom Different?
Although many kratom strains use grafting, Maeng Da is one of the most notable examples of this technique. Maeng Da is also a bit more mysterious than many other popular kratom strains.
Despite Maeng Da’s popularity, there’s a lot of mystery surrounding this strain. Only people who have a deep familiarity with kratom cultivation know the exact leaves and percentages that go into Red, Green, and White Maeng Da kratom powders.
Unfortunately, there’s still a lack of high-quality scientific data on various kratom hybrids. It’s difficult to say what separates Maeng Da from other similar kratom strains. People unfamiliar with kratom may overlook significant distinctions between Maeng Da kratom and other popular kratom powders. However, most kratom customers argue Maeng Da powders have similar alkaloid percentages to those found in traditional red, white, or green strains.
In the case of red maeng da kratom, most of these strains have higher traces of the alkaloid 7-hydroxymitragynine, while white kratom has more mitragynine. Since green-vein kratom is harvested in-between white and red strains, it often has a balanced mix of these alkaloids. Maeng Da probably follows this model in terms of its alkaloid percentages.
What Are Maeng Da’s Aromatics?
There aren’t any reports that suggest Maeng Da kratom has unique aromatics compared with other kratom strains. Generally, people find that Maeng Da powders have grassy and bitter aromas, which is common in most kratom products.
Thankfully, since Maeng Da is such a hot hybrid, it’s easy to find the three varieties of this strain in capsules. Those who can’t stand the smell of kratom in their home may want to check our Maeng Da capsules. The Maeng Da powder in these capsules has a gelatin coating, which dampens this strain’s pronounced pungency.
Who Should Buy Maeng Da Kratom?
With a name that means “pimp,” Maeng Da may scare off new kratom customers. Although Maeng Da has a reputation for pronounced aromatics, that doesn’t mean it’s a bad choice for beginner kratom collectors. However, it’s probably best for new kratom buyers to focus on Green Maeng Da before researching White or Red Maeng Da.
Green-vein kratom tends to have the best blend of alkaloids, which gives it a more balanced chemical composition. Since White and Red Maeng Da lean on different ends of the alkaloid percentage, they may not be the optimal choice for people just starting their kratom collecting journey.
A positive feature of Maeng Da kratom is that it’s readily available at most kratom vendors. Due to Maeng Da’s popularity, it’s one of the most accessible kratom hybrids. No matter your familiarity with kratom, you should have an easy time adding Maeng Da to your collection.

We’ve been with Golden Monk almost 2 years and bought almost 20kg of Red Maeng da. We’re extremely happy with the quality and fast shipping they provide. After spending years trying to find a company that stands behind the quality of their products and their customer service we’re done searching. We highly recommend Golden Monk.

I’ve been very impressed by the Golden Monk since I first started purchasing from them a couple years ago. Not only do they have great kratom at great prices, but their customer service is the best in the business! Their communication is impeccable, and their response is rapid! I can’t imagine buying my kratom from anyone else! Thanks, GM!

I have been buying kratom from another website thinking it was the best, but I decided to give you guys a try and got the red maeng da. Also you guys have air sealed bags which keeps it fresh, but it is messy in those giant bags.

Taking this amazing product every day for 4 years except a couple days here and there. It’s the best quality and consistency I have found or heard of. Customer service has been very helpful and always answers calls and returns emails within a few minutes. This has improved the quality of my life greatly. TY Golden Monk for all you do for us customers 😊.

Kind customer service, very, very fast shipping, superior quality. It’s hard to find companies that check all three of these boxes, but goldenmonk has been my go-to seller for the last couple years, and they have been perfect in every sense of the word.

Best Kratom vendor on the market, hands down no competition. I have been ordering for years and I will confirm that the shipping speed/packaging and quality is top notch! You will not find better, if you don’t believe me ask the 8 other vendors I used to order from and wouldn’t give them the time of day or my money for their sub-par way over priced product. Thank you for everything you do Golden Monk, keep up the amazing work!

I Ordered from Golden Monk from the first time and I read the reviews to make sure I wanted to order. I’ve been using Kratom for over 4 years now and I ordered the split kilo option Green maeng Da and Red Maeng Da. I regularly use the green Maeng Da and saw comments that the red Maeng Da is better but in my preference green strains work best for me but I tried red anyway. The red is really good but I like the green better so if green works best for you go with green although they were both really good, great quality and everything. I am ordering a second time and trying the green malay. I would consider ordering from Golden Monk if I were you. I’ve been getting kratom from smoke shops and after I had Golden Monk, there is no comparison. Golden Monk kratom is 100% times better then the smoke shop. I think they’ve just got another long time customer. Another thing is when I first ordered I forgot to put my PO box and I was notified almost right away from CS and they fixed it very quick so it could be mailed out ASAP. My packaged arrives 3 days earlier then expected. From Las Vegas to Pennsylvania only took 2 days to ship. I was surprised how well the customer service was and how fast the shipping was. Definitely try Golden Monk, they have a 100% money back guarantee, so there’s nothing to lose. I think you will be happy with it. They have been in the Kratom game longer then it’s started getting popular here in USA.
Great quality Kratom ✓
Great customer service ✓
Fast shipping ✓
Great prices ✓
Got a kilo split between, red mang and red Bali got to east coast in 2 days products very fresh.
I’ve been very impressed with the quality, value, and speed of delivery. 10 out of 10. I heard about Golden Monk on Chael Sonnen’s Podcast- “You’re Welcome”.

I just finished my first bag of green Maeng Da. Out of all the places I have bought from in the last 5 years. This was the absolute best. I used less and it helped me get threw my day. Plus. I felt good again. Can’t wait to order the red and white. If there anything like the green. I’ll be passing the word to all my family and friends.

I have been using Golden Monk Red Maeng Da for a number of years. It helps me immensely. Golden Monk always has great products at a great price and the coupon codes are a huge benefit! My orders have always been shipped within minutes of placing an order.
Most of all, I wanted to mention the customer service at Golden Monk. They treat me like a valued customer every time I shop. My purchases arrive quickly and any questions I might have are answered immediately. There are other places to shop but none compares to Golden Monk. I always bring my business here! Great products, great customer service and a healthier life! Thank you, to the entire staff at Golden Monk!

Only kratom my wife and I buy, really. I’ve tried others, but this one is the most consistent in terms of quality.

I’ve been ordering from Golden Monk since 2018 & it’s my #1 go to even now! I love the Maeng Da! I ordered my typical kilo, but threw in a white Borneo. Also excited to try this new raw blend soon (can’t remember name) but it’s a newer one! Always hoping the shipments keep going bc i can’t live without it.
Larry Gardner (verified owner) –
Excellent quality, incredible shipping and a very good price. This was my first order with GM and I was very happy with everything. So much so that I ordered another 3 strains after doing more research. I would recommend GM for anyone who uses Kratom or is thinking of trying it. Don’t use the gas station or head shop stuff. The quality here is 10 times better!
This is a great product. Great price and great customer service. I highly recommend this.
