It is an enhanced strain, which uses the standard, leaves of Maeng Da. Yellow is not a natural color in yellow Maeng Da leaves. In this case, yellow color shows up as a result of a drying process, which the manufacturers use to retain the alkaloids. Yellow Maeng Da is also referred to as the gold powder, with mitragynine content being higher than most white strains. Only the very old leaves are hand picked from the deep, untouched rainforests of Indonesia. This strain is not naturally grown, but it is created. It’s a fact that Kratom leaf can only have three types of veins; red, green and white.
Yellow veined Kratom leaves do not exist naturally. So, if you ever come across any site that states yellow veined Kratom, they are just fooling you. There’s no such thing as a yellow vein. Users of Yellow Maeng Da describe its effects as being more similar to a green Malay strain, a high potency and high impact strain that produces feelings of energy and euphoria and helps relieve feelings of anxiety or malaise.
