Maeng Da kratom has a well-deserved reputation for being both potent and impressively well-balanced. Even Red Maeng Da kratom is less sedative than most red vein strains.
Maeng Da kratom was originally developed in Thailand using traditional plant breeding techniques. Its creators had one goal in mind: to create a strain that was uniquely potent and long-lasting. By all accounts, they hit their mark. Red Maeng Da is now grown across Southeast Asia, and the unique hybrid strain has retained its high alkaloid concentrations.
Some kratom users prefer to take Maeng Da in powdered form, while others enjoy kratom tea. Read on to find out about this strain's unique characteristics and benefits.
What is Red Maeng Da?
Red Maeng Da is sustainably grown and harvested by hand from hybrid varieties of Mitragyna speciosa. The small-scale farmers that grow the kratom for sale at Austin Vibes focus on using centuries-old, traditional cultivation techniques proven to be both ethical and effective.
Indigenous farmers begin by ensuring that the soil quality can support this fantastic hybrid kratom strain. When the leaves are at just the right point in their growth cycle, they harvest them by hand and dry them using proprietary techniques. The dried leaves are then shipped to Austin Vibes, where we have them lab-tested, then package them for use in brewing kratom tea.
Reasons to Buy Crushed Maeng Da Leaf
Crushed kratom leaf provides all the same effects and benefits as kratom powder. According to some experts, it also contains higher concentrations of beneficial alkaloids. Since it is not finely ground, none of the plant's active components are lost during processing.
In Southeast Asia, kratom users can pick fresh leaves off the trees. In the West, crushed leaf kratom is the closest thing to this traditional ingestion method. Some Western users like to use traditional ingestion methods like chewing the leaves instead of brewing them into tea.
Crushed kratom leaves are also:
- Easy to grind into powder at home
- Perfect for fast-acting sublingual applications
- Just as versatile as kratom powder
- Pesticide- and herbicide-free
- Cultivated in small batches to ensure quality
- Lab-tested to guarantee quality
Brewing Red Maeng Da Tea is Easy With Crushed Leaves
Most customers who buy kratom in crushed leaf form instead of purchasing kratom powder do so because they're serious tea enthusiasts. Unlike the powder, crushed leaves can be used just like traditional teas. Just make sure to let the tea leaves steep for at least half an hour to achieve maximum potency.
