As one of the internet’s foremost kratom vendors, Super Speciosa receives frequent praise. The company is known for its top-quality products and rigorous testing standards. In fact, Super Speciosa’s dedication to clean, unadulterated products has earned them a place on the American Kratom Association’s GMP list.
But while Super Speciosa’s product quality is top-notch, their product selection is noticeably leaner than other vendors. As of this writing, the company only carries several types of kratom — or kratom strains. And while a smaller strain selection can be less intimidating to buyers, less variety can also mean fewer opportunities to find a strain that fits your needs.
So, to help you decide which Super Speciosa strain might be best for you, we took a look at the effects and properties of Super Speciosa’s top-rated strains. Here’s what we found!
Green Maeng Da
Most users describe Green Maeng Da as highly stimulating, and Super Speciosa’s Green Maeng Da seems to be no exception. On SuperSpeciosa.com, customer reviews of the strain include comments like “gives me tons of energy” and “does very well with giving me energy and motivation.” Reviews we’ve collected also indicate that Green Maeng Da should provide a noticeable mood boost and last upwards of four hours.
That said, Green Maeng Da isn’t ideal for everyone. The strain doesn’t seem to be very sedating or pain-relieving, so those looking to relax and ease discomfort might be disappointed by Green Maeng Da.
Most green kratom strains are noticeably energizing, but user reports suggest that Green Bali is more balanced. Rather than providing a burst of energy, Green Bali seems to offer a blend of relaxation and only mild stimulation.
Super Speciosa customers seem to agree. Reviewers on SuperSpeciosa.com describe the strain as “excellent, balanced,” and “very relaxing and energetic at the same time.” As a result, Green Bali might be the perfect choice for first-time kratom users or those who don’t enjoy exceedingly potent strains.
However, Green Bali does have some noticeable setbacks. Like Green Maeng Da, its pain-relieving potential seems limited, although this is typical for green strains. In addition, Green Bali doesn’t appear to be very mood-boosting.
Red Maeng Da is one of the most recognizable and best-selling strains on the market. And fortunately, at Super Speciosa, the strain’s legacy seems to be in capable hands.
As a red kratom strain, Red Maeng Da appears to be a more relaxing version of Green Maeng Da, but the strain still maintains its energetic edge. Users have said that the strain offers a balance of stimulation and relaxation that becomes more sedating at higher dosages.
That consensus mirrors what Super Speciosa customers have said about the strain. In one review, a Super Speciosa customer said, “Nice energy, kept me focused on my job.” Another found Super Sppeciosa’s Red Maeng Da to be more sedating, stating, “Red rhymes with bed and it made me SO sleepy.”
But despite Red Maeng Da’s versatility, users have some gripes with the strain. Red Maeng Da might be less pain-relieving than other red strains, which could be a turn-off for some. In addition, Red Maeng Da might not be the best choice for those with sensitive stomachs.
As of this writing, Red Bali is the second red kratom strain that Super Speciosa offers. In contrast to Red Maeng Da’s energizing nature, Red Bali seems to be more sedating and pain-relieving. It may also provide moderate mood elevation.
Super Speciosa customers seem to agree. On SuperSpeciosa.com, one customer described Red Bali as “So chill, relaxing, mild.” Another wrote that the strain “was very relaxing and euphoric.”
However, while Red Bali can provide effective relaxation and pain relief, it might not excel in other areas. Due to its sedating nature, Red Bali probably won’t increase your energy levels. Users have also reported that Red Bali isn’t very long-lasting, with effects lasting an average of three hours.
Super Speciosa is the company’s signature kratom variety. According to SuperSpeciosa.com, the strain contains at least 1.4% of the kratom alkaloid mitragynine, making it certifiably potent.
Super Speciosa appears to be made from green kratom, so it’s likely somewhat energizing and somewhat sedating. Customer reviews seem to support that description: on SuperSpeciosa.com, one customer wrote, “Great non-jittery, focused energy. Also still relaxing at the same time.” Another said that Super Speciosa “gives me increased energy and a positive mood” and “[helps] with minor muscle aches and soreness in my back.”
If you’re looking for a pick-me-up, Super Speciosa’s White Maeng Da might fit the bill. Like Green Maeng Da, most White Maeng Da kratom seems to be highly stimulating and euphoric. At low-to-moderate doses (1-2.5g), it may increase energy levels and mood.
Customers on SuperSpeciosa.com seem to agree: One reviewer described White Maeng Da as “Uplifting and euphoric,” with another noting that the strain provides “Very good energy.” The strain might also have an above-average duration to boot, with effects lasting up to four hours.
That said, White Maeng Da seemingly stimulating nature won’t please everyone. If relaxation or pain relief are priorities for you, you might be better off with Super Speciosa’s Red Maeng Da or Red Bali.
As of this writing, Super Speciosa has a smaller strain selection compared to most vendors. But it’s still worth it to evaluate which strain(s) might be best for you before ordering.
Depending on your preferences, you might enjoy Red Bali more than White Maeng Da or vice-versa. And despite our attempts to describe each strain, kratom’s properties can ultimately be subjective. There’s no replacement for developing your preferences through experimentation.
