Since Maeng Da is not a strain, leaf, or region, what is it? Is it a mix?

As I understand it, Maeng Da is also called "horned leaf", it is not a mix. It grows in many areas, but has this same characteristic of little curled-up horns or prongs along the edges of the leaf.

In Thai, it means pimp grade or some say it means "cockroach". The thing is, it tends to be about 50% stronger than other varieties. It usually is a Red Vein, but also comes in Green and White Veins. The buzz is sensuous, good pain relief, while also being energetic. Unfortunately, it is not as long-lasting in effect as Green Malay.

Here is a nice Pinterest with picture explanation of what Maeng Da is:

Maeng Da Kratom is an strongest variety of Kratom available today with a potent mix of mood and energy with enhancing effects. It makes for an excellent energy booster when taken in the morning and can help you get motivated and feel more clear-headed all day long.

I get a lot of my Kratom from a local organic tea and herb shop. The lady that owns it is extremely knowledgeable about all things natural (and REALLY likes to share her knowledge, lol), and her Kratom is always very high quality! She says Maeng Da is a blend.

Maeng Da is an extra more powerful as compared with other kratom strains and have same effects as with different types of Nootropics. Make us alert, focused, awake and increase physical as well as mental productivity. However, there are few side-effects as well such as it may increase anxiety or stress.

I got my first bag of white Maeng Da recently from my source, first time getting Maeng Da. Compared to the other 'starter' Kratom powder I have, it smells really.. REALLY uh.. fishy? Sorta smells like dried shrimp. Heh, well i'm not a seafood lover anyways.

Haven't tried it out yet, but I'm hoping it doesn't make me gag. :I Also curious to see if it has a fresh tolerance level. A Kratom FAQ video on youtube has led me to investigate his claims that tolerance 'reset' can happen when you switch strains. Can't exactly remember what he said though. My tolerance for my current Kratom went up quick.. effects only last an hour on 3g, and then the sleepy crash. Could just be cheap stuff. Not worth taking anymore til my tolerance goes down somehow.
