Understandably in the beginning we tried to keep the localities of the various Kratom strains secret. By doing so we created our own synonymous names for identification of the various strains. For example:
Does NOT occur on Bali. Original Bali Kratom comes from Central Western Kalimantan and this strain was our main commercial strain. After sampling most of the different Indonesian Kratoms including the strain from West Papua , we concluded that this strain from Kalimantan was the nicest strain for a commercial Kratom and we called it “Bali Kratom” which was where we lived.
Is illegal in Thailand. It would be extremely unlikely if large amounts of real Thai kratom is available given the abundance of good legal Kratom from Indonesia. Also given the fact that Indonesian Kratom contains more alkaloids and more Mitragynine than Thai Kratom or Malaysian Kratom (1). In fact Thai and Malay Kratom are very similar which makes sense given the proximity of each other on Mainland Asia. The same goes too with the variant found on Sumatra that is cut off from Malaysia and Thailand by only the narrow Straits of Malacca. This is why we called Sumatran Kratom “Thai Kratom”.
Maeng Da Kratom
Probably the most well known and famous kratom known today!!! Always associated with strength and the highest quality, the Pimp’s Kratom is our real legend. But WHAT EXACTLY is it??? It is a natural kratom that has a minimum of 1.2% Mitragynine!!! Maeng Da is a created or rather is a crafted way of looking after Kratom trees so that they produce more alkaloids. Average wild collected leaf from the same location can yield as less as 0.7% to 0.8%.
