Therefore, it is a fast strain.
Maeng Da is currently grown in West Kalimantan as well as other regions in Southeast Asia. Yet, it originates from Thailand.
As a matter of fact, translated from Thai slang, its name means “pimp” or “pimp grade”. Thai vendors chose to name it this way to increase the sales of this strain. Pimp grade indicated that it has a much higher potency than other varieties of kratom.
Well, they weren’t wrong to do so. Green Maeng Da has high alkaloid content and a unique set of effects. Thus, it’s often referred to as the most potent green strain.

Green Maeng Da Cons
1. Quality and Potency May Be Inconsistent
Quite a few users have complained about Green Maeng Da being one of the least consistent strains in terms of quality and potency.
Keep in mind though that kratom is a natural substance. Unlike prescription medications, its potency can vary depending on many factors.
These can be weather conditions, the season, the amount of water, and many more. Therefore, not every batch that you buy is going to be exactly the same.
But that isn’t the fault of Green Maeng Da per se.
Sadly, the fact that this strain is so effective, unique, and popular among users attracts the attention of fake vendors. Thus, they are likely to put fake, low-quality, or adulterated Green Maeng Da on the market. They do so because they know it’ll make sales.
Therefore, it is important to choose a quality vendor. One that consistently tests their kratom and ensures that only quality product reaches their customers. The potency of the product will still vary. Yet, reputable vendors will ensure that it is relatively consistent.
