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.

    I used Kratom (several strains) to come off Cymbalta, Neurontin, Ambien, Klonopin, Xanax, Valium, Vistril, and Zoloft. I use 3 grams in a tea every evening with CBD oil twice a day. No withdrawls (Coming off Cymbalta was hell!) and I feel like myself again! Life saver for sure!

      Have you tried kratom kaps maeng da? I’m going thru the same thing

    2. John doe

      Have you tried kratom kaps Maeng da 22.5 gram capsules? I’m going thru the same thing with Xanax.

      1. Kk

        I dont think the capsules u r talking about would b 22.5 G- that is the entire bottle most likely has 50 caps in it

      2. Mark

        They are 750 milligram capsules so 4 capsules is same as 3 grams. Maeng DA is fantastic

    3. Mike

      I been using different strains of Kratom for chronic pain and Methadone withdrawals. My experience has been that the white strains are for mostly energy with some pain relief and mood elevation. The greens are more mood elevation and pain relief while the reds are more sedating with pain relief. Red Maeng Da is an exception to the rule. Because it is a high breed strain it is very stimulating and provides the most pain relief for me. I take 3-5 grams of Kratom (different strains based on need) every 4-6 hours and stop taking the stimulating strains around 4pm so I can get to sleep between 10 and 11pm. Some of the other red strains can be used as a sleep aid. Everyone has a different tolerance so start out with 2 grams and work your way up as needed for the desired result. I limit myself to no more than 18 grams per day.
      Hope this helps.

        Mike thanks so much for your comment! Out of all the comments here, yours helped me the most!!

  2. Missalys

    I am just trying it for the first time i got a bottle of Maeng Da to try out. I do currently have a 25mcg fentanyl patch, and take Celebrex for inflammation but it’s just not helping enough. Does anyone know about kratom interacting with prescription meds?

    1. SerenityChas

      DO NOT mix Rx meds with Kratom!!!!

  3. Lynn

    New to this. I ordered extract and some powder. I can’t wait to try, I’m expecting great things. I had back surgery >6yrs ago and continue to have chronic lb and hip pain. Want to get off opiates so badly. Use Fentanyl patch 25mcg and take 30mg oxy. They just don’t work anymore. I’ve tried cutting back, but the SE’s are brutal. My order should be here Sat. Wish me luck and any dosing advise would really be appreciated. Also wondering if Kranker Kratom is an honest reputable place to buy from. Any other suggestions of where and what strain to buy is so helpful to me. Thank you..

    1. Kandi

      Hi! I myself have been on opiates and have had great relief with this! Lemme know how u do!

      1. Karma

        I was involved in a car accident and was prescribed perks. I am at the point where I take a 30mg or 2 of them. I want to get off these perks and I heard this stuff helps. Any suggestions on dosage and how to take it ? Please I’m desperate * I want to save my life !!

        1. Phillip Furgason

          Hope you are succeeding with this path of your life. I am an example of someone who was in your boat and switched to Bali Kratom, vitamin B and a gallon of water a day. RLS meds for the first week. It works!!!! This with other changed habits will work and you can do it.

          I am experimenting with other strains of kratom to see what it does but I think that’s just the addict in me 🙂 tho I do enjoy the effects. Just remember water water water. And more water.

    I just bought “KRATOM Korner” Maeng Da capsules it says serving size: 1 capsule 0.5g. I curenntly take 30mg of Oxycodone 3 x’s a day. How many capsules of KRATOM would equal a 30mg of oxycodone? Can someone please tell me, I don’t want to take too much.

    1. Jim

      About 5 im personally coming off heroin so it works n good luck

  5. Brad Simpson

    Need something to help me thru between scripts. My old pain management doc retired and the new one wants to do spinal injections at $10,000 each. I’ve tried these and they didn’t work. The guy is all about money. I have to see him every month when my last doc I saw every 3 months. I’m been on pain meds for 20 years and have only walked up to 10mg Vics 6 a day. He’s cut me back to 4 a day. That’s great if I didn’t work 12 hour shifts.

    I have to find something that helps with pain and makes opiate withdraw tolerable. The way it is now by day 2 without opiates I’m down hard, diareah, shakes, cold sweats, all around just like shit. I can’t function for 2-3 days while I’m like this. Hypersensitivity to pain especially my legs, OMG my legs are on fire at night. They won’t settle down I won’t sleep at all.

    My last doc understood he had back surgery and my MRI on my spine made him ask how I was able to function on just Vicodin. He was surprised I hadn’t been asking for something more potent. I don’t want anything more potent. This new doc wants to put me on Oxycotin because the DEA is pushing to reduce the number of pills they prescribe. Been on them I turn into a soulless, heartless asshole. Constantly pissed off my reactions are disproportionate to whatever happens, I explode in rage.

    Need recommendation on what would fit my situation best. Would prefer no sedation side effects during the day but definitely for the night, if one type can do both if not main goal is pain relief and opiate withdraw mitigation. Thanks ahead of time.

    1. Mandi Robinson

      I am so sorry the doctors can’t seem to find out what works best for you. I hope all is better now.

    2. Randy

      Brad, i have been taking Maeng Da mostly for over a year and 6 months. I am 67 with spinal stenious, severe degenerative disease, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, neuropathy jn all extremities. I had a serious opiate problem as well. I take two heaping teaspoons every 2 to 3 hours. I get pain relieaf, alertness, energy and can work long shifts. I never get high. I do feel good.

      1. Michelle Solinger

        This exactly like me. I take 3 tsp of red Bali, I was amazed at how well it worked. No more narcotics.

      2. Lynda Fowlerfisher

        Thanks Randy- I think your advice is a good fit for me. It’s almost another year passed, curious if your advice and dosage still stands…

  6. Melody

    I been taking and trying different strains of kratom….my daughter told me to start with the Red maeng da and i really loved it and it gave me so much energy and helped with my pain, then I also tried, the green maeng da I don’t like it as much it doesn’t seem to be as strong of a strain…today I am trying gold and I have white maeng da on order I also have tried bali which I found it to give me headaches which I suffer enough from I even lowered doses and tried different things….the green maeng da is good for anxiety and depression but once it wears off it hit me hard with a bad case of anxiety….I didn’t like that….I will probably go back to the red maeng da but I want to try the white because it is good for RA and also pain…and I have fibromyalgia and RA and alot of back pain…it has helped me alot and my g/f is going thru stage 4 lung cancer so with me having to be her caregiver and take her to and from appt. I have to be active and i don’t always feel it this helps me and i rather take this then opiods…I also have gone thru a few days w/o it and the withdrawls are not that bad not like I go thru with opiods….I am glad that my daughter put me onto kratom.

    1. MalinoisLady

      Hello Melody,
      Maybe a dumb question?
      But when you say RA do you mean rheumatoid arthritis?

  7. Linda Simpson

    I bought Maemg Da powder, 7oz. I’m 69 and have DDD/ DID. Hip knee replaced back surgeries I’m in constant pain. How much do I need to take? Using 2 tablespoons in small smoothie. Seems to me too much

    1. Twoyear Kratomuser

      Every strain is very different, as is the same strains from different batches. It’s best to start out small with each new strain to see how your body reacts. Some strains I can take 10 grams, others I can only take 3-4

    2. Kate

      I have Lyme and usually only do 1 tsp green Maeng Da with OJ. After 4-5 hrs I sometimes do another tsp. Everyone is different, every strain is different. It’s all about what works for you.

    3. Brian Sims

      I’m 50 and was taking suboxone for 7 years. Tried to quit but withdrawals were BRUTAL. Started taking Green Maeng Da, because of it’s high alkoloid content. Stopped taking the suboxone, and started taking 10g (1 heaping tbsp) every 6 hours at first. Never went thru withdrawals while on the Kratom. Take red Maeng Da at night to sleep. Hope this helps.

      1. Jon D

        Hey there. Saw your post on trying to get off suboxone with Kratom. Has it helped and still working? I’m in your same boat any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

      2. Eric

        Hello. I’m coming off heroin and p ercs. A friend suggested info kratom although I just started 2 heaping teaspoons. Every 6 hrs so far so good. Should I adjust the dosage?

      3. Sheila

        Hey I appreciated your post and I know it’s been awhile since you posted it however how are you now? Still off the suboxone? I am wondering what the dosage would be in the jumbo capsules for someone wanting to do as you did. How many would a person start with?
        Thank you.

        1. Marlene Stewart

          I take 4 capsules every 6 hours to not have withdrawal from morphine and oxytocin.

      Hi Linda, I have DDD & DDD boobs = CONSTANT BACK PAIN. I put 5-9 TEASPOONS in a gallon of orange juice and keep it at the ready. Be sure to shake very well. However, if you are diabetic you might try making tea. I just read up on it and am going to try it. I will make a gallon of tea, and do it just like I do the oj. As we know, oj is full of sugar. If you’re trying to lose weight, drinking oj is like drinking a coke = empty calories – no good.

      BTW, FOLKS: if you make it a gallon at a time, the longer it sits the better. The “green” taste totally goes away. It doesn’t taste bad at all. And you can make a higher concentration and pour it into your glass with a little more oj.

      I drink about 4 oz at a time about 4 times a day until about 4p. I’m able to function all day.
      I then take a couple of hits of CBD oil from an e-pen. I cut off kratom @ 4: because I don’t want to be awake all night.
      Actually function at a semi normal rate. I still have to keep in mind that I have to be careful not to overdo it. I’m 58. At our age, we don’t need to be taking grams at a time. This, I think, is the only perk of the metabolism slowing down.
      I noticed that if I take more, I get the narcotic drowsiness, blech. So I keep it about 4 oz at a time. Keep your height and weight in mind as well. I’m 5’1 and 169 lb.s Now you have a better idea of why the way I do it is a good dose for me.

  8. Nikki

    I want to try some but EVERY website I go to wants me to order $50 or more in order to use COD or debit card payment. This has been the most frustrating time trying to order it!!! 😢😢 I have taken myself off pain pills after being on them for 14 years. Does ANYONE know where I can buy some online without the $50 min?? Thank you xo

    1. Daniel Mowery

      Where do you live.. just look up kava bars or smoke shops near you and call them.. ask if they sell kratom thos way you dont get scammed online and you dont have to spend 50

      1. Carol Williams

        Any smoke shop,usually. I bought 80 caps for $19.00.

        1. Barb

          Carol Williams where was this that u bought it from? I’ve never of 80 caps for $19…….that’s awesome

          1. Thomas Divis

            South Sioux City Nebraska sells Bali in gas stations for $20 and they work well

        2. William

          I live in CT, just paid $39.99 for Mang da Red, 100 capsules, 50 grams. Bought them at a vape shop.
          Was told they might help me with relief from drug cravings. Seems to be helping, although it could all just be in my head lol.

    2. Maryann

      Check your smoke shops

      are you near 60430 zip code

    4. Curt Manners

      I’d hate to have to feed that monkey you got, but if you’re serious, study the strain types on this site. Then go to Coastline Kratom and read what they have.
      They are an American mom and pop, their stuff weighs right when it arrives, it’s clean, and it’s quality.
      To kick Hydro after a 3 year run, I went to the head shop and got those big tabs that are 900 mgs. 1000 mgs. is a gram, for reference.
      I took one at a time so I could test the FX a little at a time, finally settling on two to get the edge off each morning. One later in the day.
      Don’t guzzle a bunch of coffee and eat this on an empty stomach, have a cookie or something before and then be sure you’re hydrated with water.
      I’m a real hard sell on holistic crap and they don’t make the drug that can kill me, but kratom did actually keep my mind off that Vicodin for long enough to stop that $6 a pop nonsense for Vickies.
      The Red Bali is said to be most akin to the feeling you and I are needing, but I’ve got all different kinds, for sedation/stimulation.
      I ain’t gonna lie to you, I still like that feeling of well being, and I use high grade bud along with Kratom to stay off of anything else and I mean anything. No booze, cigs, or Peruvian marching powder.
      Get you one of those el cheapo capsule makers off Amazon, some 00 empty capsules, a 50 gram bag of Red Bali and set up shop.
      Those caps hold right at .6 gram packed good and tight.
      Good luck Pal, you’re gonna need it.

    5. denise

      I ordered from Sacred Kratom and got a few ounces of several different strains for less then $15 each. I also found a local “head shop” that sold it by the ounce.

      1. Carter Hadley

        Sacred Kratom is my favorite so far. I’m new to it & have tried 3 vendors. SK Red Bali is great for pain & opioid withdrawal symptoms. I haven’t seen them mentioned often & it seems they should be. I also tried their white Maeng Da. I’ve yet to find the right strain for my fatigue but the MD is still helpful.

    6. Jim

      Releaf kratom columbus oh

    7. Danyelle Zumwalt

      I got some from a tabaco shop in Jacksonville il for $20

    8. Karen Mokas

      I use 2 teaspoons and that works for me.A few times I have had to take more but I always start off with the 2 teaspoons not tablespoons I hope this helps

    9. Karen Mokas

      I buy mine from Miracle kradom.There are 2 locations
      1 in Columbus, Ohio and 1 in Newark,Ohio

    10. Stephanie

      What city and state are you in cause I’m in Ocala Florida for now( horrible place) but I go to any gas station and get Kratom- it’s hit or miss on quality) but maybe somewhere close to u sells it?

  9. Cindy bothe

    I’m on day 1 of my journey the maeng DA kratom powder and its working wonderfully!
    I started will 3grams this morning. Did it like a shot! Tastes like dirt, but as others have said. If you really want it you’ll get over it.
    Waited 20 minutes and did another 2 grams.
    Have not even thought of wanting an opioid!!
    This is gonna be a true lifesaver for me.

    1. Twoyear Kratomuser

      Beware, the withdrawals are worse than opiates for alot of ppl. And mix it with orange juice, it really masks the taste. I use mango orange juice (Simply orange is the name brand)

      1. royMOnster

        You got that right

      2. Josh Lopez

        I’ve withdrawled from many different opiates plenty of times. I have also ran out of Kratom before and in my experince, Kratom withdrawal is comparable to caffeine withdrawal, only 10x worse. The physical aspect was nothing compared to methadone or heroin withdrawal. The worst part was my mental state. Kratom withdrawal left me feeling empty inside and highly depressed. But I have not touched any opiates in about a year and stay at a comfortable daily dosage of Kratom. I take about five grams of Maenga Da in the A.M. with my strong coffee, and about five grams of Bali in the P.M.

      3. Samuel Beaty

        Tell me about the effects of coming off Kraton after long term usage please. Is it really bad like opiates?? I find that hard to believe with it being so organic and natural. Please help.

      4. Grant

        That’s not true the withdrawal of kratom is about 2/10ths that of opiates I’ve been taking it for a year now,trust me I know

  10. Justin

    The “pimp grade” kratom works well, other than Green Maylay its my most favorite. 4 grams gives me the energy I need plus reliefs my fibromyalgia😁
