Maeng Da Thai White-Vein Kratom powder is from the leaves of the Mitragyna speciosa kratom tree. The leaves have a characteristic network of white veins on the back of the leaf.
Maeng Da translates literally to “pimp grade” in Thailand, where it originated.
The Mitragyna speciosa Kratom tree contains the alkaloids mitragynine and 7-hydoxymitragynine. The white-vein and red-vein Maeng Da Thai strains have one of the higher alkaloid content levels found in the species.
The kratom tree has been cultivated and its leaves harvested by experienced growers for generations, using techniques passed down over the years.
