Maeng Da is a very high-quality strain of Kratom that is derived using the ancient art of grafting to produce a superior version of the Thai Kratom tree, also known as Mitragyna speciosa. The ingenious engineering of this unique tree allows for better stability in the growth process and makes it less susceptible to change in the seasons and its environment. The herbal compound that is harvested from this grafted tree is treasured in Thailand for its potent effects, earning it the Thai nickname Maeng Da which loosely translates in English to ‘pimp grade’. The smell of it is strong and pleasing, and the leaves are dark green. Maeng Da exhibits a bright green hue when the leaves are crushed, or it is ground into a powdered sugar-like consistency.
