Christopher’s Organic Phenotalk – White Maeng Da

White Maeng Da is the #1 Customer Favorite White Phenotype Here at Christopher’s Organic Botanicals. Now the Maeng Da name is really just a name and not a special phenotype at all. 

It usually is the best quality leaf of the batch nowadays and/or older leaves than the rest of the harvest. The Phenotypes themselves we focus on are regional, which makeup over 75% of our stock. White Maeng Da has always been a popular type regardless of its origin.

We have thought about just taking the name Maeng Da away altogether, but it has been around for such a long time that it would most likely lead to confusion. Maeng da is a Thai term that has come to refer to a level of quality. In actuality, maeng da is a slang term in Thailand that means ‘pimp’. It’s used when talking about kratom to denote ‘pimp grade’, or top-grade quality.

We want to be transparent and talk about different regions where kratom is grown and why we select certain regions over others. As with any plant the soil and region it is grown in will affect the make-up of the plant to some degree. We are studying these Regions & Alkaloids to better understand this wonderful plant. As we learn about this plant even further we would love to open up this conversation further with everyone.
