Should I take Red Maeng Da or White Maeng Da?

Posted by GLAKratom on 17th Mar 2020

Everyone who's familiar with Kratom knows, Maeng Da has a reputation for being one of the strongest kratom blends on the market, but just how strong can it be? Does the strength change when you go with a red, what about a white?

In this blog, we're going to take a closer look at Maeng Da in a couple of its forms, so as to better understand how each form of Maeng Da might stack up against one another. I believe you're going to find that there is a world of difference between each one.

Red Maeng Da is, by far, the most well-known and popular of the Maeng Da veins, but does that make it the best or the strongest? The truth is, that all depends on how you feel about it and how your body works. As we all know at this point, everyone is different and the effects can change from person to person.

Here’s a detailed breakdown of red and white vein Maeng Da kratom, we'll show you what they have in common, what makes them each unique in their own ways, and why they might be just what you’re looking for in a strain.

Red Maeng Da

Red Maeng Da is the number one kratom with a huge kick because it is the definite strongest Maeng Da blend. The formation and chemical formulation of this one distinguishes it from its brothers and sisters. Harvested from kratom plants that grow in an extremely humid, and tropical climate, Red Maeng Da is highly praised for its alleged anxiety reducing benefits.

Red Maeng Da is often used by those experiencing anxiety disorders or individuals dealing with high stress. It is a kratom leaf that induces relaxation, with the supposed ability to help cause a restful sleep in those battling insomnia. Although the FDA has not approved kratom for medicinal use, the natives of Southeast Asia have been implementing kratom as a folk medicine throughout the ages and Maeng Da, in particular, is known to reduce anxiety and vanquish insomnia.

Among those who have used Red Maeng Da are persons with mood and behavioral disorders, trouble sleeping such as insomnia, arthritis, anxiety and/or work-related stress. While scientific evidence of its medicinal potential is considered to be inconclusive, the kratom community have been vehement about its professed benefits.

Red Maeng Da is especially popular among these people who see it as a worthy herbal choice for calming their nerves and feeling at ease in high pressure situations.

Red Maeng Da Alkaloid Content/Testing

With a medium to high percentage of 7-hydroxymitragynine and panthetheine, Red Maeng Da possesses antioxidant
  and muscle relaxing properties, as well as potential anti-inflammatory effects. Those who have purchased Red Maeng Da swear by it's increased positive feelings, mild stimulation, a clean energy boost and alleged analgesic properties they have experienced.

While none of this is backed up by concrete scientific data, the kratom community at large have spoken and they say that this one is notably effective in these areas. Some see Red Maeng Da as a nootropic in that it may relieve “brain fog” and optimize concentration. At high doses, it is claimed to have a nice euphoric effect as well.

Red Maeng Da Dosage Suggestion

Copious amounts of testimonials by experienced individuals points to the average kratom user consuming 2-4 grams as a mild dosage for the starting or average person.

Red Maeng Da’s efficacy depends largely on a number of physiological factors and those who are elderly or obese may see less efficacy as this dosage level.

White Maeng Da

White Maeng Da is another of our top-selling kratom strains. Whereas Red Maeng Da may produce sedating and relaxing effects, white vein Maeng Da gives off more of an energy, and contains stimulating properties.

Those who have used White Maeng Da talk about how effective it is as a pre-workout drink when tossed n’ washed or taken in the form of kratom tea in replacement of their cup of morning coffee. Boasting a full-bodied aroma and a rich color, White Maeng Da is often used by former coffee fanatics who are looking for the stimulation and mental acuity of coffee without a case of the jitters.

Unlike with Red Maeng Da, White Maeng Da kratom gives off energy where we do not recommend using it at night time, keep it in the morning folks! Although, like Red Maeng Da, the variations in its alkaloidal content makes it broadly flexible in its potential effects on an individual.

Users typically consume 3-5 grams for a moderate dose of White Maeng Da while some who are more used to it can take an average dose of 6-8 grams. Seasoned kratom users suggest that 10 grams is the highest amount one should take, so as to avoid any negative side effects.

In conclusion

That's all we have for it boys and girls! If you’re looking for a strain that’s going to help soothe your mood and send you off to bed after a day full of life’s daily stressors, Red Maeng Da is the way to go. If you’re looking to get your hands on something that balances these relaxing effects with lots of clean energy, White Maeng Da may be more suited to your needs.
