Maeng Da Thai Red Vein Kratom originated in the jungles of Thailand but is now grown in several areas. The name literally translates to “pimp grade” kratom.
The leaves of the tree have a characteristic network of red veins on the back of the leaves. All strains of Mitragyna speciosa kratom tree contain mitragynine, and the red-vein leaves have one of the higher concentrations of the alkaloid.
This is the not the cheaper “horned” material that other sites are selling as true RV Maeng Da and one of our most consistent products.
Red Vein Maeng Da is native to Thailand and is now grown in Indonesia, where it is picked and processed by local farmers, then ground into a fine powder. Maeng Da loosely translates to “pimp’s grade,” and it gained this nickname due to the high-quality leaves which are rich with alkaloids. Red Maeng Da is known for containing over 28 alkaloids and a higher concentration of 7-hydroxymitragynine due to outdoor, more extended length drying, which gives it the red vein color.
In the traditional way to categorize kratom, the color refers to the vein on the leaf and indicates how mature the leaves are at the time of harvest. Red is known for having the most time to mature, while white has the shortest time, and green is in the middle. The secondary name is the region in which the product was grown or where that strain originated from. Some names you’ll probably recognize are Sumatra, Bali and Borneo.
The first thing that you need to know is what kratom is! Kratom is a plant. Specifically, it is a tree that is native to southern Asia where warm and wet climates help this deciduous tree grow big and strong. There are huge forests of kratom trees in Borneo, Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Thailand, and other neighboring regions as well.
