User Average


  • Could elevate energy and reduce fatigue
  • May promote feelings of well-being
  • Potentially fast onset (~30 minutes)


  • Could be less sedating and pain-relieving than other strains
  • Potentially more nauseating than other strains, especially at higher doses


With a signature high-energy potential, Green Maeng Da seems to rival even white strains in terms of raw stimulative power.

Green Maeng Da kratom icon

The Maeng Da family of strains is frequently praised by kratom enthusiasts, and Green Maeng Da is no exception.

Most users describe Green Maeng Da as highly stimulating and moderately euphoric. In low-to-moderate doses (1-5g), it may increase one’s energy and mood. Green Maeng Da’s onset of effects also seems to be quick, and some users have reported that the strain is faster-acting than its cousin, White Maeng Da. Green Maeng Da’s duration of effects also appears to be longer than average, with effects lasting up to four hours at moderate doses (2.5-5g).

However, although Green Maeng Da is a seemingly high-energy strain, it doesn’t appear to be very relaxing or pain-relieving. Some users with sensitive stomachs have described Green Maeng Da as more nauseating than other strains, especially when taken at high doses (5g+).

Due to the subjective nature of kratom and personal variations in body and brain chemistry, your experiences with this strain might differ from the average user.

    Got some GMD from dan hoping to get that uplifting euphoric kick of a Maeng Da. Well… I definitely got what I was looking for. I’m a daily user of 4 years for chronic pain from a broken spine. Got my GMD yesterday and was so pumped. Looks and smells beautiful. Light shade of green,baby powder grind, with not one visible stem or vein. Super super bitter to the taste buds. I could tell just by looking and tasting it I was in for a treat. Took my morning 12 gram dose and after 25 minutes it came over me. Big surge of energy, lots of warmth,and that happy feel good mood enhancement a good Maeng Da provides came with it. I’m very glad I got this and would highly recommend it. I like it much more than the Plantations.Not saying there bad but this shit is strong. Shouts out to /u/gaiakratom on this one this is a must have for the collection. Easy 9.5/10 on this one

    Very good leaf. Really, really solid green Maeng Da. Was honestly some of the best I’ve had in a good while, and it will become a part of my rotation for good.
    The mood lift and energy you would expect from a GMD are both there, and it seems to have really long legs! I don’t see this as often in a Maeng Da.
    The aroma really hits you hard, and as I said before, lasts a really long time, even with a pretty good tolerance. My dose was 4G. I take that about 4-5 times a day.

    I burned 1 teaspoon before my college’s homecoming basketball game not knowing how the green would compare to the white maeng da. My experience was very, very [mood] uplifting with moderate euphoria accompanied by a very energetic buzz. I did not have any social anxiety nor any negative side effects. If anybody is looking for a great mid day strain for an extra pick me up I would definitely recommend this. As always it’s a pleasure to apart of such a caring community and I am trying to establish my part in it. I am on the path to becoming a kratom connoisseur. 🙂

    The kratom itself had a normal scent and taste. I took it as a tea per usual and on an empty stomach. It was very much a “true” green for me. It made me extra chatty (I’m typically quite chatty) and was terrific for anxiety (a chronic issue of mine). It had decent legs and a neutral effect on pain. I hover around 2 grams per burn

    I have some of the Socal green maeng da batch dated 11/21/16. It’s been a good strain for me, nicely euphoric, mood lifting, and helps relieve pain. I take 4 to 6 grams per dose, usually twice a day. I am a daily user of kratom, but do try to take a break every so often.

    I took the Green Maeng da from Socal 30 min ago.. This is my second time taking 1 teaspoon. Yupp, it’s very energizing for me. I can tell this one is long acting.
    At lunch time, Red Maeng Da from socal lol.

    I won a sample of this during one of his giveaways and in return I would like to review it.
    To start off with the color, wow, as seen in the pic it is a very beautiful green! 10/10
    The taste was wonderful and easy to get down 9/10
    The effects were exactly what I’d expect for a Green Maeng Da, kicked in fast and lasted for a few hours. 9/10
    I’ll give this strain a 9/10 and would recommend if you get the chance!
    Thank you /I/jjspkd It was fairly energizing and I felt more focused. I noticed as I was driving how focused I was

    8. Demty
    30 minutes in and feel great, energetic, and focused! Like I said it came in super fast and the quality is excellent.

    Mmm Speciosa has a Green Vein Maeng Da they will be putting up soon if its not already up. I sampled it and the first time I tried it I really loved it. I felt crystal clear energy with lots of clean focus and concentration, no eye wobbles or negative effects. I tried it again a week later but it didn’t have the same effects. My dose may have been too low.

    Great for creativity. Gives you energy and mental clarity as well. Just make sure you take a moderated dose.

  3. James M Smith says:

    My favorite, bar-none. Great energy and mental clarity! Hits fast and lasts long. Mixes well with other strains to counter-balance it’s clear lack of pain relief. Mixing a strain strong in sedation can produce a very pleasant “sedated energy” effect. Doesn’t take much, definitely induces nausea at higher doses.

  4. Hey There! I’d like to place another order with you and just wondering if you would be so kind to grant me a promo code for a little discount. Every little bit helps and would be much appreciated.

    I missed the July 4th special.
