This strain has a very unique history in comparison to many others, and, sadly, looking for information about it can be difficult due to the disinformation and lack of information available on the internet. Interestingly, Maeng Da, which in Thai means ‘Pimp kratom’, has only been so named for less than 20 years. The history of this strain has been veiled from public knowledge, and, thanks to lack of research, some conspiracy oriented people even speculate this kratom was genetically modified. However, those who believe this strain was genetically modified are not entirely incorrect, as this kratom strain has been uniquely bred through a process called grafting; however, conspiracy-styled stories of basement dwelling botanical geneticists are well off the mark.
At a specific plantation in Indonesia, a technique called grafting became common practice again, blending natural and artificial selection methods in an attempt to create the strongest possible kratom. This plantation slowly became renowned for their kratom’s strength in comparison to other areas and was officially labeled by them as “Maeng Da.” However, because kratom has become popular in the world-wide marketplace, its potency in comparison to other strains is nowhere near as pronounced as it once was, making it less desirable than before; however, in many cases it can still be highly effective, especially for those who do manual labor, as it was originally “designed” for.
