What Is Super Green Maeng Da Kratom?
Kratom, or kra thum, is the name given by Thai people to the plant known botanically as Mitragyna speciosa. The plant grows abundantly in the thick, luscious jungles of Southeast Asia.
Kratom is marketed and sold as different strains and colors even though the powder is always green and always comes from M. speciosa.
Different processes alter the alkaloid content of kratom. Things like fermentation and fine powdering can make stronger products.
The name of a strain gives you clues about its effects. Green vein kratom strains are powerful and energizing and reduce pain and stress, ideal for people working long hours.
Maeng Da is a Thai term that can be roughly translated to mean ‘pimp grade.’ The term is slapped onto strains or batches of kratom leaf that have a higher-than-average alkaloid content.
Super vs. Regular Kratom: What’s the Difference?
Super kratom strains are usually the same as their counterparts in terms of effects. The main difference is that they have a higher alkaloid content.
A higher alkaloid content amounts to more powerful effects, so this means you won’t need as much to get the same benefits that you would from a regular strain of kratom.
How, exactly, do farmers go about creating super strains?
There are different answers to this question, and most likely, the only way you’ll get a clear answer is to speak directly with the grower.
Some farmers have a keen eye for knowing which kratom trees produce stronger leaves. They may isolate these and sell them as Maeng da.
Others suggest that the leaves are harvested at a specific time when the alkaloid content is highest. Another idea is that stems and veins are excluded before grinding the kratom into powder, although many farmers exclude stems and veins unless they’re making white kratom.
‘Super’ kratom is relatively new on the market, and the market itself is notorious for its high number of marketing ploys. Some vendors might just slap the label on some of their regular kratom and sell it as a ‘super’ strain, charging a higher price.
Some have suggested that super strains are made by adding mitragynine extract to the powder. This is possible but unlikely.
Extracts are extremely potent, far more than even a super strain could account for. Extracts are also expensive and would result in super strains costing more than they do.
Pros of Super Green Maeng Da
Why, then, would you ever use a regular strain when there are super strains available?
Some people find that kratom is potent enough already. They do not need an even stronger version of the plant.
More alkaloids mean more stimulation at the opioid and dopamine receptor sites throughout the body. Repeated stimulation at these sites is a major factor contributing to addiction and withdrawal.
Any strain can lead to addiction and withdrawal, but the more potent the strain, the more dangerous the risk.
The cost of super strains tends to be a little higher as well. So if you don’t need the extra power, it may not be worth the added cost.
Pros of Super Green Maeng Da Kratom:
- It contains a higher alkaloid content than regular kratom and therefore produces more powerful benefits
- It has a longer duration than regular green Maeng Da
- It can be consumed in lower doses, thereby reducing some of the gastrointestinal discomfort involved with consuming large amounts of kratom
Cons of Super Green Maeng Da Kratom
- More expensive than regular Maeng Da and most other strains
- It can feel a bit overwhelming for sensitive or novice users
- Difficult to find and only available at certain times in the year
Effects of Super Green Maeng Da Kratom
Green vein kratom strains are dried immediately after being harvested. This allows the alkaloid profile to remain nearly the same as it would be if you were to chew the whole leaf straight from the tree, as kratom was traditionally used.
Green strains, including Super Green Maeng Da, produce a variety of benefits. They showcase the entirety of kratom’s potential, offering stimulation and focus at low doses and relaxation and mild sedation at high doses. They can also be useful for managing mild-to-moderate pain.
- Energy: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ — It ain’t no white kratom in terms of energetics, but Super Green Maeng Da comes pretty close.
- Mood: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ — Prepare to feel great about life.
- Anxiety relief: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ — Super Green Maeng Da can help with anxiety.
- Pain relief: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ — No green strain will be a perfect pain reliever. However, Super Green Maeng Da is pretty useful for anyone hoping to manage pain while remaining active.
- Sedation: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ — Super Green Maeng Da can lead to some pretty profound relaxation in high doses, but it’s not going to compare with a red strain.
While Super Green Maeng Da Kratom can provide just about every benefit of the plant in some form, it excels at several things. These are what people most often use Super Green Maeng Da for:
Boost Energy Levels
Super Green Maeng Da is a fantastic strain for boosting energy. It’s not as raw and sharp as the energy provided by white strains, but many people prefer this.
Super Green Maeng Da is stimulating, yes, but it provides its stimulation alongside the warmth and pleasantries of its stronger opioid activity. Its opioid activity isn’t as fully sedating as something like Red Bali, but it’s still much warmer and more ‘forgiving’ than the razor-sharp edge of white strains.
Super Green Maeng Da does, however, tend to fade quite quickly. As the experience fades, you’ll likely find yourself becoming increasingly relaxed. If it’s late, you’ll probably feel compelled to get to bed a few hours after your dose wears off, especially if it was a large dose.
Support Low Mood
If you’re using Super Green Maeng Da, prepare to enjoy your afternoon. A lot. Super Green Maeng Da is one of the most euphoric strains that you’re ever going to find, and you can expect that it will leave you feeling elated, chatty, and excited for at least several hours after your dose.
Super Green Maeng Da is a powerful tool for anyone struggling with depression. It can give you the motivation and determination necessary to implement lifestyle changes that can improve your mental health.
Enhance Focus & Concentration
Super Maeng Da causes the brain to release a flood of dopamine. This neurotransmitter is responsible for things like mood, motivation, libido, and focus. As such, this strain of kratom is a great tool for people who are interested in putting their nose to the grindstone for a few hours.
If you’re interested in pulling an all-nighter studying, however, you might want to use a white strain.
As mentioned, Super Green Maeng Da often dwindles into a more relaxing experience after the initial stimulation has worn off. For this reason, it might not be recommended for late-night studying due to the potential of redosing to keep your energy levels up.
Alleviate Stress & Anxiety
Some people find that Super Green Maeng Da is a great strain for relieving anxiety; others not so much. It depends on your specific anxiety and how you prefer to manage it, as well as your sensitivity to different stimuli.
Super Green Maeng Da is a stimulant, and some people find that any stimulant provokes anxiety. However, most people find that the opioid effects and the mood boost overpower any sort of anxiety they might be struggling with.
Super Green Maeng Da Kratom Dosage
Like any other kratom strain, Super Green Maeng Da will provide different benefits depending on how much you take. Here’s a quick outline of what you can expect from this strain at different dosages.
Low Dose for Energy, Focus, and Mood: One to Three Grams
At lower dosages, the stimulatory effects are more prominent, and the more sedating alkaloids aren’t present enough to cause much relaxation, except perhaps towards the end of the experience.
Medium Dose for Mood, Anxiety Relief & Energy: 3–6 Grams
Mid-range dosages are the most common and provide a balance of different effects. The start of the burn will be stimulating, and this dose can be good for relieving anxiety and providing a mood boost.
High Dose for Mood and Relief: 6–10 Grams
Higher doses tend to bring out more of the sedative properties of Super Green Maeng Da. It’s still not as potent of a painkiller as a red strain, but you’ll certainly find some relief.

Super Green Maeng Da Side Effects
Any sort of kratom can cause side effects. Regardless of the strain, excessive kratom use can lead to dizziness, nausea, constipation, irritability, and brain fog. There is also the risk of kratom addiction.
However, Super Green Maeng Da is more likely to contribute to certain side effects. These include:
Super Green Maeng Da can be very stimulating, especially for people who are not accustomed to using kratom. When taken too late in the evening, Super Green Maeng Da might lead to insomnia.
Most people find that Super Green Maeng Da helps manage anxiety. However, those that don’t find relief may find that it provokes their anxiety. If this is the case, then you should switch to a red strain.
Similar Kratom Strains
If Super Green Maeng Da doesn’t sound right for you, here are a few other strains that can provide similar effects.
Green Maeng Da Kratom
Regular Green Maeng Da is one of the most popular strains of kratom. Its effects are identical to Super Green Maeng Da, with the main difference being its potency. It’s not as strong.
This means that Green Maeng Da is less likely to be overwhelming than the Super variety. It’s also less capable of causing addiction and dependence, although the risk remains if you’re not able to be responsible with your usage.
Super Green Malay Kratom
Super Green Malaysian Kratom is very similar to Super Green Maeng Da. Some users report that the difference in effects lies in the departments of mood and stimulation.
Super Green Malaysian is said to be one of the most euphoric strains, with many agreeing that it’s more euphoric than Super Green Maeng Da. The stimulation provided by Super Green Malaysian is also a bit sharper, and the post-burn relaxation is less pronounced.
Super Red Maeng Da
Super Red Maeng Da is a much more sedating variety of kratom. It can also vary significantly from vendor to vendor, in part because not all vendors agree on what constitutes ‘’Maeng Da’ kratom.
For the most part, Super Red Maeng Da is still not as potent of a sedative as Red Bali and definitely not as sedating as Super Red Bali. However, some vendors may apply the Maeng Da label simply to their most potent kratom, and, in these cases, Super Red Maeng Da may be the superior sedative.
Final Thoughts: Super Green Maeng Da
Super Green Maeng Da is one of the most potent strains of kratom powder. It is known for its stimulating and euphoric benefits. Its effects are largely the same as the effects of standard Green Maeng Da; it’s just a bit more potent.
Just like any type of kratom, Super Green Maeng Da should be used respectfully. Abuse can lead to addiction as well as side effects such as dizziness, nausea, and insomnia.
