Why Is Hyper Hippo the #1 Happy Hippo Kratom Leaf of All-Time?

Since our birth in February 2013, Green Maeng Da (Hyper Hippo) has been one of Happy Hippo's most popular strains!

Hyper Hippo has sold nearly double the amount of any other Happy Hippo Leaf.


While Maeng Da strains are historically thought to be the highest-quality and Green is the most common vein color, there is actually more specific customer-provided reason -

Green Maeng Da (Hyper Hippo) is considered by most customers to provide the perfect balance of Energy (actual energy, not just motivation) and Happiness (sense of well-being).

Green Maeng Da (Hyper Hippo) delivers the clean energy without the jitters - even to those who often don't do well with the Faster strains.

Basically - There are some strains that provide more energy (Thunder Hippo or Rockstar Hippo).

There are some strains that provide more Happiness (Magic Hippo or Smiley Horned Hippo)...

But, many believe, there is no strain that provides more energy AND Happiness than Green Maeng Da (Hyper Hippo).

Green Maeng Da Kratom is considered by many to simply be the most well-rounded kratom strain.

That's why it's called the Everything Strain.

Green Maeng Da Kratom Serving Size

If you are a newbie -

Start low. Like, really low. This goes for all veins of Maeng Da Kratom (Red, Green, White, and Yellow).

We don’t recommend beginning over 1.5g, and preferably starting at 1g. Green Maeng Da kratom powder is one of the easiest strains to gauge the serving because it has such an obviously stimulating effect. But that also means it’s easier to take too much; which can be an uncomfortable experience.

What to Expect From Green Maeng Da (Hyper Hippo)

Green Maeng Da kratom is not only one of the most stimulating Kratom Strains; it also provides many of the qualities you associate with the relaxing, Slower strains.

This is a rare combination in the Kratom world!

While Green Maeng Da is not necessarily the most energetic or most relaxing - it may be the very best at providing both qualities.

While we wouldn’t recommend it if you need help sleeping or for relief from physical discomfort, it will absolutely help you get through a long day when you need to stay alert while maintaining a Happy mood.


Favorite Use

Some people really enjoy using Green Maeng Da Kratom to workout. We totally endorse that approach! Our favorite things to do are active, but focused. If you have a physically demanding task you need to get out of the way? Green Maeng Da Kratom has your back.

It may be a little too potent to sweep your room, but let’s say you need to overhaul your entire wardrobe? Perfect. Make sure you use this strain with an objective in mind. It’s not like some of our other general-use strains. Just make sure your objective requires some kind of activity. That’s where Green Maeng Da Kratom (Hyper Hippo) shines brightest.

How to Use Green Maeng Da Kratom Powder (Advice from Puddles Hippo)

Green Maeng Da is our favorite for the gym, but frankly, it's great to walk your puppy too (as in - YOU use Hyper Hippo, NOT your dog).

Green Maeng Da Kratom is the get stuff done kratom strain.

To this day, one our favorite 'be more social' mixes is 1:1 blend of Green Maeng Da (Hyper Hippo), and Green Bali (Top-Shelf Bali).

Green Maeng Da = Energy and Enthusiasm

Green Bali = Be Nice to People

We use 1-2 grams of Green Maeng Da and 1-2 grams of Top-Shelf Bali.

We always say that mixing is the key to really unlocking Kratom's magic and the Hyper + Bali mix is legendary.

Closing Thoughts

Green Maeng Da (Hyper Hippo) is the nexus of Energy and Happiness.

While results will certainly vary from person-to-person...

From 7 years in business, we've learned that -

Even though Green Maeng Da isn’t everyone's absolute favorite strain, it is consistently in long-time customer's top five and daily rotation.

Kratom Newbies should try Green Maeng Da as one of the first five strains they buy.

Took my hyper hippo this morning at 1:00 and 1/4 G and I’m not sure why but it made me sleepy. Does that mean I need less or more??

William Kerry Jennings

Hyper Hippo is the absolutely the best green vein I’ve tried and I’ve tried a lot from different vendors, so don’t waste your time going anywhere to get a great green strain when Happy Hippo has to very best

Becky Leach

Hyper Hippo is my favorite strain. I use it when I am feeling lethargic in the morning or when I have a big day ahead of me. It helps me focus, have energy and motivation to take on the day.

Santa Hippo, as you know, is for Christmas. It’ll be here, again, before we know it!

Because it is a seasonal strain, we make this mix from our [i]best[/i] strains available at the moment.

It’s always a Red-Vein and Green-Vein mix.

At the Hippo Office, we’ll make at least three to five different potential mixes in-house during December.

Whichever mix is resonating the best for us, that’s the one we go with!

In-short, we won’t be able to define Santa Hippo’s specific mix for you. It is different each year.

For the past couple of years it has been a mix between a Fast and Moderate Strain (Green vein + Red vein).

As an example, if you wanted to try a 1:1 Mix of Hyper Hippo and Happy Hippo 2 this would be a potential Santa Hippo combination. :) (heart)
