To create Yellow Maeng Da kratom, farmers allegedly dry White Maeng Da in the sun. The sunlight “cures” the kratom, turning the white kratom leaves yellow. The resulting strain is similar to White Maeng Da but different enough to warrant distinction.
Most Yellow Maeng Da users describe the strain as moderately euphoric and stimulating. For others, the strain is also somewhat relaxing. Generally, Yellow Maeng Da is reported to be more sedating than White Maeng Da. Some users have described the strain’s stimulating qualities as “mellow” and the energy potential as being “just enough.”
Like White Maeng Da, Yellow Maeng Da doesn’t appear to be very pain-relieving. Its duration may be slightly above average and last up to 3-4 hours at moderate doses (2.5-5g). Yellow Maeng Da may be more nauseating than other strains, especially at higher quantities (5g+). We recommend exercising caution when assessing dosage.
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.
- May offer a broad, balanced range of effects
- May elevate mood and promote relaxation
- Potentially energetic without being overstimulating
- May be less stimulating than other white/yellow strains
- Potentially poor pain relief
- Likely average duration of effects
