White Maeng Da kratom is one of the top sellers among many vendors and one of the most recommended strains in the kratom community. It’s one of the strongest strains on the market. Many users love it because of its potent energizing and euphoric benefits.
What Is White Maeng Da Kratom
White Maeng Da kratom is a popular white strain. It’s a variety of the Mitragyna speciosa tree indigenous to Thailand. It originated as a product of the grafting process.
Thai kratom farmers combined a Thai and an Indo kratom tree to achieve a more potent variety that would be more resistant to environmental factors and seasonal changes. Since the alkaloid properties of kratom can differ because of those, the goal was to produce a strong and consistent strain.
To promote the unique effects and properties of this white vein kratom strain, it was given a unique name – Maeng Da.
You may have already heard that loosely translated from conversational Thai, it means “pimp grade.” While it’s a less popular fact, Maeng Da has a second meaning.
Mang da or malaeng da na is a giant water bug. This may seem like a weird choice of name, but, in actuality, it’s not.
It is very common in Asian countries to eat insects. They are considered valuable sources of protein and vitamins. If you have ever traveled to Thailand, China, or other Asian countries, you’d notice fried bugs, maggots, and even scorpions sold in touristic places.
The giant water bug is a delicacy in Thailand and other Asian countries such as the Philippines, Cambodia, and Laos. Locals love it for its sweet taste that allegedly resembles that of scallops.
So, naming this strain after a water bug was actually implying that it is extremely good and beneficial.
Now, you are likely wondering what pimp grade has to do with it. Locals use mang da as a slang term referring to how pimps resemble water bugs buzzing around street lamps at night. It’s actually an insult. Why name kratom after an insult?
Prostitution is illegal in Thailand, but still extremely common and profitable. So, if a pimp would go for Maeng Da kratom when they could afford a lot more than an average Thai person, this means that it has to be that good. The popularity of this strain only confirms that.

One of the best things about this strain is its long-lasting effects. While individual people’s experiences vary, it can last for about 5-8 hours. Here’s what White Maeng Da kratom can do for you:

White Maeng Da Dosage Tips
When it comes to white strains, they are best taken in lower doses. 2-3 grams are sufficient to achieve mild effects. You can increase it up to 5 grams if you are looking for stronger effects or are a more experienced kratom user.
The threshold dose for White Maeng Da is 1 gram or even less if your kratom is very potent. Therefore, start with 1 gram if you are new to or less experienced with kratom. It may even be better to start with 0.5 g, especially if you are athletic, have a high metabolism, or low body fat percentage. If you go for that and experience no effects after 30 – 60 minutes, take another half a gram. Do so until you reach your desired effects.
Stimulating strains like White Maeng Da kratom are best taken in the morning. Yet, for some people, it is common to feel sluggish in the afternoon.
The early afternoon can be a great time to take this strain too. It can be beneficial if you have things planned in the second half of the day, such as meeting friends or going to the gym.
However, avoid taking it late in the afternoon or in the evening as the stimulating effects can disrupt your sleep. As mentioned above, its effects last for about 5-8 hours. Keep that and your desired bedtime in mind when you take this strain.
Taken in the morning or early afternoon, this white strain can, on the contrary, improve your overall quality of sleep. It will keep you alert and energetic throughout the day. So, you will feel tired just in time for bedtime.
White strains have energizing and mood enhancing properties that can help with depression. In the meantime, there are people who feel agitated and jittery which increases their anxiety and worsens the depression symptoms.
Be aware of that if you suffer from depression and anxiety and decide to give White Maeng Da kratom a try. If you notice that your depression and anxiety get worse, you may want to try a different strain such as Green Maeng Da. It has milder stimulating effects. Therefore, it will provide slightly milder effects, yet still get you through the day.
Another thing to watch out for is the fact that there are vendors out there who do not sell Maeng Da kratom, but simply use it as a marketing trick. What they may offer is Thai Kratom from a different vendor or a location. While still beneficial, it’s not what buyers are looking for.
To avoid that, select a kratom vendor carefully. Make sure to research vendors well and look through reviews before you place an order.
