If I'm feeling groggy or tense, I become shamefully unmotivated. It’s so hard to be productive when you feel like a zombie. Regardless, I still need to get work done. Sometimes it's nice to have a little pick-me-up to get my mind on track. Unfortunately, coffee doesn’t always do the trick. Coffee can cause the “jitters” which makes it even harder to focus.

That’s when I turn to Kratom. 

Question: What is Kratom?

Kratom is a botanical native to Southeast Asia. Its scientific name is Mitragyna Speciosa. Kratom leaves produce natural compounds called alkaloids that offer a wide variety of effects once consumed. 

From increasing energy to easing physical discomfort, Kratom has been used for centuries by the locals because of its “healthful” nature. After learning about Kratom and all the amazing things it can do, I began to understand why the natives value this plant so much. 

In this article, we talk about one of the most famous Kratom strains in the world: Red Maeng Da Kratom. We will cover all of the main aspects and provide links to informational articles so that you can continue expanding your knowledge. Lastly, I will explain why Red Maeng Da Kratom is great for composing a balanced mood.

Let’s get started!

What is Red Maeng Da Kratom?

Red Maeng Da Kratom is common. It’s one of the most popular Red Vein Kratom strains next to Red Bali Kratom. Nearly every Kratom vendor carries it, so it’s not hard to find!

There are over 50 strains of Kratom, but Maeng Da Kratom is the most desired. It is considered the most potent and high quality. The word “Maeng Da” roughly translates to “Pimp Grade” in the slang of the people in Thailand. 

Other types of Maeng Da Kratom include White Maeng Da, Green Maeng Da, and Yellow Maeng Da. Red Maeng Da Kratom has the most mature alkaloid profile out of the 4 Maeng Da vein colors. Mature alkaloids create a robust resonation.

Red Maeng Da Kratom Effects

  • Social Confidence (Feel good about talking to people even when you don’t want to!)
  • Encourages Positive Mindset
  • Increased Productivity (Not Overstimulating)
  • Discomfort Relief
  • Smooth Energy

What Makes Red Maeng Da Kratom So Popular?

It’s really no secret why Red Maeng Da is among the most popular Kratom strains available on the market. In general, Maeng Da strains have a reputation for offering some of the most desirable effects. They are superior and well-admired by Kratom enthusiasts everywhere. 

How Much Red Maeng Da Kratom Should I Take?

We recommend starting with 1-2 grams to evaluate the effects. Starting with a small serving size will help you find your “sweet spot” with ease and it reduces the risk of unwanted side-effects that come from taking too much at once. Especially if you’re a Kratom Newbie. 

Here is some guidance to Kratom serving sizes with Red Maeng Da:

  • 1-2 grams: This is the perfect serving size for beginners or if you’re trying a new strain for the first time. 

Note: I’ve been using Kratom every other day for several years and my serving size is still at 2 grams because I practice strategies to maintain my Kratom tolerance.

  • 3-4 grams: This is an average serving size for regular Kratom users.

  • 5-7 grams: This serving size is considered large, but some daily users may require larger serving sizes. Your body anatomy (height, weight, metabolism) has a lot to do with it, too.

  • 9-10 grams: This is considered a LARGE serving size. Most people who require this large of a serving size have probably been using Kratom for years and developed a tolerance.

    If your serving size is above 9 grams - try practicing some strategies to reduce your Kratom tolerance.

Other Popular Maeng Da Kratom Strains

Happy Hippo’s colossal selection of Kratom powder includes several high-quality Maeng Da Kratom strains. 

These strains resonate similarly, but everyone’s experiences are different.

  • Green Maeng Da (Hyper Hippo)

  • Green Maeng Da (Hyper Hippo) Kratom is our #1 best selling strain. For a good reason, too! It works wonders for increasing productivity. It’s best known for producing smooth, clean energy and positive mental attitude.

    I love using Green Maeng Da before going to the gym, it helps get me through my workout with a smile on my face!

  • White Maeng Da (Rockstar Hippo)

  • White Maeng Da (Rockstar Hippo) Kratom is great for those days where you just can’t seem to wake up. It provides stronger energy than Green Maeng Da, giving you an invigorating source of energy and motivation. 

  • Yellow Maeng Da (Sunshine Hippo)

  • Yellow Maeng Da (Sunshine Hippo) helps you wake up and shine! If you’re feeling grumpy and lethargic in the morning before work, give Yellow Maeng Da a try. It effortlessly uplifts your mood and leaves you feeling happy, motivated, and ready to take on the day! 

  • Pink Maeng Da (Red and White Maeng Da Kratom Blend)

  • Pink Maeng Da (Tickle Me Pink Hippo) is one of our special Kratom blends. It incorporates both Red and White Maeng Da. Let me tell you… these two strains compliment each other very well! The resonation feels like a burst of excitement and joy - lots of energy and an exceptional mood boost.

    Red Maeng Da vs Red Bali

    Despite sharing the same Red vein color, Red Maeng Da and Red Bali Kratom are two strains that resonate contrary to each other. 

    Red Maeng Da is more energizing and motivating, while Red Bali is prime for relaxation and deep relief. However, they are BOTH great for producing a happy, carefree mood! We recommend using Red Bali in the evening and Red Maeng Da in the morning/afternoon.
