Red Maeng Da
Red Maeng Da is considered as the strongest among all three strains. These Kratom strains require a humid and tropical climate to grow.
Red Maeng Da is known for its painkilling and energy-boosting properties. The red Kratom leaves have natural analgesic properties. Thus, they are a natural alternate of painkillers that, too, without any side effects. It is said to be quite effective in treating arthritis and joint pains. It can also be used to overcome opiate withdrawal symptoms.
Red Maeng Da is also known for its anxiolytic benefits. It can be used to treat stress or anxiety disorders. Red Maeng Da is also known as a relaxing Kratom leaf as it helps in inducing quality sleep in people who have Insomnia.

White Maeng Da
White Maeng Da is another popular Kratom strain that is known for its energy-boosting properties. These strains are natural stimulants and energy providers. Intake of White Maeng Da in the morning can keep the user energized throughout the day.
White Maeng Da can also provide calmness, but the effects would not be as strong as Red Kratom variety. In addition to this, White Kratom strains also help in treating depression symptoms. This Maeng Da is also believed to help in treating sleeping disorders.
Though White Maeng Da is mild, the effect of this strain lasts for a much longer time. One of the significant differences between White and Red Maeng Da is that it has a lower amount of 7-hydroxymitragynine and higher levels of mitragynine. Thus White Maeng Da is a poor painkiller, and it is better to take it in the morning hours rather than nights.
