Maeng Da Kratom

As a high potency strain, Maeng Da delivers a punch. 

It brings many of the pain relieving qualities expected of Kratom, but with a much bigger stimulating boost. However, unlike other stimulants, the energy boost doesn’t come with any jittery, unfocused side effects.



The details

Maeng Da was specifically created as a high potency red kratom strain in the humidity and heat of Indonesia. Similar to Bali Kratom, Maeng Da blends pain relief and energy into one. However, in order to beat the heat in Indonesia, this strain was made to provide a bigger kick in energy than Bali.

the difference

Because of it’s specifically bred for alkaloid properties, Maeng Da takes the normal pain relieving properties of a red strain and adds a nice energetic kick that some reds lack.

the science

Maeng Da Kratom was created using a technique called grafting, where tissues of different plants are joined together to breed different qualities of each plant into a new strain. In an effort to create a strain which maintains pain relief while mitigating sedative effects so it could be used during work in Indonesia, Maeng Da was born.

  2. Marty

    I bought a 2oz pack of the green maeng kratom. its all powder and have never taken it before. Sounds like a couple table spoons on my way out the door for work is the way to go? and just throw the table spoons of it into a glass of water?

  3. Jimmy

    How much water do you mix it with?

    1. Kerry

      You can’t mix with water it doesn’t dissolve

      1. Michelle

        What do you mix it with?

        1. Corey

          I mix mine with coffee and a lot of sugar and or flavored creamer because it tastes awful. It is true it does not dissolve. It’s kind of like cinnamon that way.

          I mix mine with coffee and alot of sugar and or flavored creamer because it tastes awful. It is true it does not dissolve, kinda like cinnamon.

    2. Amanda

      I put like 1/2 inch in the bottom of a coffee cup, hot hot water, stir up my one or two tablespoons then slip an ice cube in a swirl it around for a minute. The hot water dissolves it percent then cool it down and then I just take one or two big chugs and then rinse and gargle my mouth. Then I don’t have to like sup on it in coffee or anything cause its gross. So thats just how I’ve found to be the best way.

      1. Diana

        Like it with orange juice and another cup of orange juice to chase it with

    3. Aaron

      Water does work. People dont understand this. Grab a small cup. Measure how much kratom you want and put it in the cup. You want to fill the cup just enough to where you can drink it all in one gulp, but before you drink it, you leave the cup alone for about 4-5 mins with the water and kratom in the cup. After that just stir it with a spoon. Grab anything you want to drink after the kratom. I personally use orange juice. It does well killing the taste after that big gulp you just took.

    4. Diana

      In my coffee cup I put about a inch and a half with 1 tablespoon

  5. Heather B.

    I personally take Kratom for chronic pain, and I prefer this type. Very useful for living with fibromyalgia. Kinda changed my life.

    1. Michelle

      I have endometriosis and ovarian cysts and I’m in constant pain, so I took this and it helps with the pain, but kinda makes me sick, is that normal?

      1. Shelby

        I have noticed if i take too much i will feel nauseous. And also if i dont eat enough in between taking it. But i have to take it on an empty stomach for it to work.

    I’ve been on methadone maintenance for 5 yrs now and am on 130mg daily. I was previously on suboxone for 3 yrs and got off that and got totally clean before a relapse led me back onto medication assisted treatment. Coming of suboxone was a nightmare for about 6wks. I will turn 40 soon and I’d like to start my 40’s OFF methadone but am scared to death of the long withdrawal period. It’s worse than quitting heroin, no doubt. I want to use kratom to lessen the withdrawals. Where do I start?

    1. Hannah

      Hiya – I was using ,then went on a subutex prescription, weaned myself down from 12 mg to 0.8 mg in a few weeks then struggled like HELL to get off that last little bit… I bit the bullet one day and just did Kratom INSTEAD of my meds , 5/6G dose… and then sat there waiting to feel ill..
      It didn’t happen!
      …and didn’t happen… before I knew it it was 48 hours,then 72 …and then 7 days…
      My legs ached for a week ,but that wore off eventually. I feel so much better than it did on subs, like I want to do things again … You can do this 💓

    2. Andrea

      I used Kratom to ween off of Suboxone. It helped tremendously!! Buy some red Bali capsules at a smoke shop. Start by taking two just to make sure you aren’t allergic. Next time take 4. Just don’t take more than 6-8 your first time

    3. Mark Roberts

      Becca, I was on oxycodone for six and a half years and then my doctor just cut me off. The stuff works I haven’t had one sign of withdrawal symptoms

      1. Joy

        Please tell me how to take it?? How much?? How fast does it work??? Chronic fybromyalga pain is awful.

  7. Kay

    Dr Francis? IF you really are a doctor, you picked the wrong line of work!!!! Take your judgement to another site. Unless you have dealt with addiction you have no idea.
    As well as if someone takes a strong pain medication because of REAL problems that does not make them an addict! By Doctor! Your bedside manner doesn’t exists online so I can just imagine in person. Shame on you!!

    I took 4 capsules for the first time last night, and I’ve been itching ever since then. Does the medicine cause itching?

    1. Robin

      since some of the alkaloids mimic opiods it could be that you get itchy from that because itchiness can be a side effect of opiods.

  9. Niki

    I have a question , for many years I was on a fentynal patch. After a surgery the Dr said they could not give me anything more than what was in my system. I weaned off all but 15mg of morphine ER at night. My daughter had me try the meng da ,it really really really worked . I did not feel dopey or sleepy just no pain. They come 500 mcg in one capsule. It takes at least 4-5 of these capsules to help with the pain. The disease I have is not going to go away . I was so so happy to find I can relieve the pain without a narcotic. I looked at the sight that says don’t take more than 5 grams . I apologize for this in advance , the autoimmune disease can make the brain process a bit tricky. How many of the 500mcg is ok and what is too much ? Thankyou in advance

    1. Lorna

      500mcg is 0.5 mg so a half of a mg

    2. SWIM

      Kratom capsules generally come in 0.5 gram dosages per capsule. That’s 500 milligrams, not 500 micrograms. The ‘mcg’ would be micrograms. Only super potent drugs like fentanyl or LSD are measured in mcg.

  11. Dr. Francis

    Hmmm Fentanyl?? Much stronger then heroin.. My family member was on heroin anything he could get 100% drug addict we put him on suboxin for 2 weeks and it stopped his pain and sickness.. After we took him to a Dr ..the Dr put a chip in his arm that last 1 year and if he put a needle of heroin in … That chip is a blocker and prevents him from getting hign on anything ..i called it the Drug pellet and googled it my family member has been sober 16 years .. He overdosed 8 times died twice got a shot of narcan from the ambulance.. The chip pellet saved his life he has a wife and 2 kids now maybe it’s time to get serious and do the work and stop complaining sounds like someone still needs help .. What your doing is called DENIAL

    1. K. Lynn

      Dr. Francis, I’m not sure what your practice is. Maybe you could reread what Laura has said about having an autoimmune disease. I also have a rare autoimmune disease which caused severe vasculitis resulting in permanent polyneuropothy among other pain issues. I was using 250mcg of fantasy and an opiate with other anticonvulsant to keep various neurological conditions in check. I since have weaned myself off of fentanyl within 9 months by the grace of God & great support system. Maybe you might have a bit more compassion instead of making assumptions that one is an addict. Judging is not the help Laura asked for & personally I don’t hire my doctors to make moral judgments that’s my spiritual advisor’s position.

      Did anyone else notice that this “Dr.” has little need for proper grammar and seems either unable or unwilling to use punctuation in their public post? I am extremely skeptical of this person’s claims and I think everyone else would be well advised to assume this contributor is not a trained anything.

      1. SWIM

        Yeah, I doubt he is any kind of doctor, just pretending. Wonder if he even graduated high school judging by the poor grammar? 🤔

    3. SWIM

      Either English is not your first language or you are definitely not any kind of doctor. If you were, I imagine you would have studied English Comp. etc as part of your generals in college? Please stop lying! You are just an armchair mook passing judgement upon people you know nothing about. 👎

  12. brian

    Green maeng da is my favorite I always use it for my pain and aches

  13. Monica

    Hey all,

    I’ve been in recovery for 14 years from alcohol and meth/coke. I haven’t used anything in all these years. I am suffering with back pain but am concerned about the chance of addiction to Kratom…thoughts, experience?

    1. Carrington

      Hi. I’m 8 1/2 years sober. I use kratom fairly regularly, and as long as you respect and dont let your junkie mind interfere..its great. Plus if you take too hurts your stomach and over time you could experience hair loss. That said..put up dosage boundaries and utilize the medicine. If you feel great and try to take more to amplify backfires. It has an intelligence that requires you to use it intelligently. Listen to your clean voice and be honest. The only withdrawal type symptoms I’ve had were jumpy legs if I go too many days with no every day for 5 days straight..night 6 may be a little bothersome. Never ever take more than 10 grams in a 24 hor period..and you will develop a go small. Good luck!I’d go with red strains first…

      1. Sharon Howland

        How much if the powder green maenga do I take to help with whildrwals From opiates

        1. Ashlee

          I’m starting with 5mgs

        2. Nick

          I take two table spoons morning, noon and night. But for night I prefer a Red Bali it’s more calming and relaxing. The Maeng Da is good during the day or at work. Everyone is different but this shit helped me kick opiates.

    2. Chris

      To me kratom is very addictive but it’s the least harmful out of all the drugs. It makes me a way more productive person but it does have minor withdrawals.

  14. Iam

    Hey sandy, sounds like you were exactly where I am… how much should I take to start? I have been taking 70-80mg of norco for 10 plus years and am tired of it controlling my life 😔

    1. CJ

      I have been on Krotom for going on 3 years. I love it, but it controls me. I tried really hard not to go that path, but I lost control. I’m not going to lie I love the effect and it does exactly what it says. The withdrawals are a lot like Roxy withdrawals, but not as bad. I’ve went through methadone withdrawal as well. If you can maintain and take breaks from time to time or stay in control then it’s worth it.

      1. Julie

        Having chronic pain can and will make your life miserable. You can’t have it all. Having to take something that works would actually save my life because I’m at a point of giving up! So just be thankful that you are able to get out of bed. I’m just now hearing of this and I’m praying to God it helps me 😢

        1. Borgduck

          It will help, but do lots of homework on this beautiful herb. Don’t go desperately stumbling in, as I did, in January! Start with small doses.

        2. Mark

          Julie – You’re right. Severe, chronic, daily pain has been wearing me down for years. My life revolves around this pain.

          I just tried this Kratom for the first time a few hours ago, and it seems to really work.

          Do not go gentle, Julie. Peace to you, sister.
