  • Could energize and uplift mood
  • May be long-lasting
  • Might help reduce nervousness and aid productivity


  • Might not be very relaxing
  • Could be less pain-relieving than other strains


Boasting a seemingly energizing and euphoric profile, White Maeng Da could be ideal for those desiring a strongly stimulating strain that’s minimally sedating.

White Maeng Da kratom icon

White Maeng Da seems to be the most energetic member of the celebrated Maeng Da family.

Most users describe White Maeng Da kratom as highly stimulating and euphoric. It may provide a strong elevation of energy and mood, especially at low-to-moderate doses (1-5g). Although stimulating, the strain’s onset is reportedly slower than other strains for some users. For others, the strain is effective at relieving nervousness and increasing productivity and focus.

However, White Maeng Da will likely disappoint those desiring pain relief and relaxation. Its duration seems to be above average, with effects lasting about 3-5 hours at moderate doses (2.5-5g). White Maeng Da may cause more discomfort than other strains for users with sensitive stomachs.

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.

    So as for the strain itself, not what I would expect from a typical white. In fact, it is quite relaxing with a very pleasant amount of euphoria. I suffer from back pain as I was born with slight curvature in the spine and my job requires me to sit at a desk for 9 hours with just two breaks and a lunch. The pain today was still there, but hardly at all noticeable. Normally the back pain in a reminder to keep sitting up straight, today I was in high spirits and would catch myself laid back and relaxing, just enjoying myself. It was great =) not at all like I would expect from a typical white strain. Motivation was increased & productivity just happened to increase because I was in a great mood, but there wasn’t a ‘rush’: no jaw clenching, increased heart beat or anything of the sorts.

    i get shakes and caffeine like stimulation. – me too [higher doses, 4-5g+] So far my only experience with vomiting on kratom came after taking 4 grams of White Maeng Da. I had previously taken just under 3 grams of the same strain/batch with no ill effects at all.

    Effect wise it provides a very clear jittery free energy. For a white it had great pain relief. Euphoria wise is pretty up there. Great mood lift. Honestly one of the best WMD I’ve had in quite a while. Nothing really negative I can say mabout it.

    Upon my first burn i took my normal dose of 1 teaspoon, and within 30 minutes I could feel this surge of energy and uplifting mood change that I carried with me over to the library. As someone who has struggled with “add” ( who doesn’t) its almost unheard of for me to sit down and bust out 3 hours of continuous rigorous study sessions with NO BREAKS. That is what this strain does for me. Allows me to focus, feel great and commit my full attention to tasks at hand. Upon my 2nd burn I thought it would be interesting to take and not dabble into my school related activities and holy cow at the social aspect. I ended up just goofing around with 2 of my buddies and noted some very prominent anti anxiety effects.

    However this white md makes me more nauseated than most Kratom and its as if it never really kicks in and makes my stomach feel invisible. This has caused me to throw up at least half of the times i have taken it

    Potency: I rate the potency as 9/10. This is better than many White MD varieties that I’ve received from some popular reddit vendors. I would add this to my list of top 5 WMDs that I researched this year.
    Mood lift/Euphoria: The onset was a bit slow, but around the one hour mark the mood lift started to come on strong and had very euphoric tones to it. I was impressed with this particular aspect of the product.
    Energy: The WMD had a smooth energy that didn’t leave me feeling jittery or anxious. It had a get up and go feel to it but in the most comfortable of ways.
    Analgesia: The WMD scored average in this department, but I don’t typically research white strains when I’m looking for a pain killing component. I viewed the analgesic qualities as a nice bonus to the energy, euphoria and mood lift that I experienced.
    Duration: SKNs WMD has pretty long legs because the effects were noticeable for 4-5 hours before smoothly lingering off. That said, it did have a slow onset during the 2 times I tested it.

    I have been postponing this review because it has been difficult for me to pinpoint exactly the effects that this WMD achieves. Even at low doses, I must admit I don’t get straight “energy” per say, but it soothes me in a way that still makes it easy to finish my task. I find this to be a great strain for when I am about to attend my statistics and history lectures as they require lots of focus which this WMD still allows me to access. I put emphasis on the phrase “allows me to access” because, I reiterate, that this strain doesn’t give me energy, but it allows me to keep my energy while still getting that warm feeling that kratom gives you. I don’t get as much euphoria from this strain as I have gotten from, for example, my GMD from fresh-kratom in the past (my FAVORITE strain by the way), but it is still more euphoria than the RHK. Although this WMD is surprisingly mild, that does NOT mean it isn’t potent. I have had everywhere from 1g to 5g doses of this WMD and I usually stick with 1g to 2g since I use this kratom as a daytime burn and doses above 2g become even more noticeable. I’m sorry if this was scattered, but I stil can’t exactly pinpoint how it feels, I just know that I have been thoroughly enjoying this strain as a daytime and a daily driver and its great for working and studying!

    one of the best strains I have ever tried. It is very euphoric and energetic, similar to a really good Green Malaysian mixed with a standard white vein. I did not experience any nausea at all, and the desired effects were strongly felt after only a relatively small dose of 3 grams. I have found this strain to be one of the most effective for focus/studying as well.

    Had an underlying, pleasant warmth im not familiar with whites having which was awesome as i love that “warmth” and comfort feeling.
