Red Maeng Da is one of the most popular strains of kratom and contains more active flavonoids and alkaloids than other Kratom strains. Red Maeng Da is the most popular and traditional strand. Our ultra-fine Red Maeng Da kratom powder is sourced from mature trees and harvested by the indigenous tribes in Southeast Asia. These tribes have decades of experience harvesting from only ripe trees, and produce our powder using a standard grind. The smell of Maeng Da (Mitragyna speciosa) is strong and pleasing. The leaves are dark green. Maeng Da has a bright green hue when the leaves are crushed, or it is ground into a powdered sugar-like consistency. The “red” in Red Vein refers to the colors of the veins in the plant, not to the color of the powder itself.
