Grown as a Red leaf variety, Gold Maeng Da kratom undergoes a secondary curing process in the sun not long after harvest. Imbued with new color and character by the sun, red becomes gold.
The resulting strain is easily one of the most extraordinary of the strains we have analyzed, seemingly due in part to its origin as Red Maeng Da. Gold Maeng Da is commonly described as offering a balanced, relaxed elevation in mood, but some users are likely to find it more energetic than sedating, and vice-versa. It may be less stimulating and more sedating and euphoric than its Red counterpart. Additionally, it possesses moderate pain-relieving potential.
At this time, we cannot evaluate the average duration of this strain due to insufficient data. Given the often potent nature of Maeng Da strains, we recommend exercising discretion when assessing dosage.
