Today is the day you get off your butt and get things done.
Tomorrow never comes. What ever you don’t do today, you’ll pay for tomorrow. If you don’t plant your seed and take care of your crops today, you and your family will die of hunger when tomorrow comes.
Motivation is the “fire” inside of you that you get when you want something from the bottom of your soul.
But that’s not what I’m hear to talk about!
I’m here to talk about the days in your life when the going gets tough. The days where you just don’t feel like showing up to your next gym session, or handling your responsibilities for the day. There will be days where you feel “off” and don’t want to do anything except sleep in your bed till 3Pm in the afternoon.
But if you’re ever feeling down, unenergised, and are procrastinating… there’s a Kratom strain for that.
Green Vein Kratom
Green Kratom strains consistently deliver results. I’m confident in making a broad statement like that but of course, green vein Kratom leaf can be further categorised based on where they originate and will have slightly different effects accordingly.
As you’ve guessed, the “green vein” name literally refers to the green color of the stem and veins found on the leaves of these plants. “Green vein” would be a broad category, which would then be narrowed down based on the origin of the plant, giving different strains of Kratom.
Green Malaysian Kratom
Green Malay strains originated from – you guessed it – Malaysia. At least one strain of this kind is known for it’s enormous “Elephant ear” like leaves (larger than other Kratom leaves) and makes for a fantastic “moderate” speed strain, as discussed here.
Green Indo Kratom
These originate from Indonesia and again, offer consistent results.
Green Thai Kratom
You will also find Thai Green Kratom that, once again, is consistently reliable.
Green Maeng Da
Maeng Da Kratom originated from Thailand but you can in no way assert that any green vein Maeng da on the market today is Thai, since other countries in Southeast Asia like Malaysia and Indonesia now also produce strains of Maeng Da. These are a class of strains bred specifically for a higher alkaloid content.
Regardless, this brings me on to the particular strain I want to bring to your attention today as it’s an absolute power house like nothing else and a fantastic example of a fast green vein Kratom: Green Vein Maeng Da.
Green Maeng Da Review
I should title this: Three Easy Steps To Go From “Mr. Lazy” to Rocky Balboa
Here are the three easiest steps you can take to transform your “lazy off days” and become a productive, procrastination-killing machine.
You will need:
- The Green Maeng Da strain
- A measuring scoop or a scale that measure in grams
- A functioning human body
Now, before I start giving you the instructions, it would probably be a good idea to explain what exactly this is.
Happy Hippo’s “Green Maeng Da”, previously named “Hyper Hippo”, is a very fast green Kratom strain grown in Thailand, very similar in its effects to Rockstar Hippo, a white vein Maeng Da strain, and Red Hot Hippo, a red vein. In my opinion, it’s one of the best green strains on the market.
STEP 1: Burn a Nice Dose of Green Maeng Da
The first thing you want to do to get out of your slump is to burn some Green Vein Maeng Da as fast as you can. Make sure you go easy with Hyper Hippo or any fast strain. 2 grams would be a good starting point. Burn too much and you’ll be running around like a chicken with its head cut off.
Usually I don’t like to take any fast strains of Kratom on their own, but that’s just me! Feel free to experiment and see what you like. I like to mix it with a slow strain like Sleepy Hippo or Bali Kratom so I won’t be too hyper and instead more motivated to sit down on my computer and do some work.
Follow the Kratom dosing protocol, the best way probably being with a Toss n’ Wash. You may also want to experiment combining this strain (and any strain for that matter) with caffeine. Some Kratom users believe it enhances the effects and potentially makes them more long lasting.
STEP 2: Wait For It to Take Effect
The next thing you’ll have to do is play the “waiting game” and the waiting game sucks, so do something productive in the meantime.
Usually you should start to feel the aroma within 15 minutes if you don’t have any food in your stomach and had a good dose to begin with.
Here is what you can expect to feel from this particular green Kratom strain:
If you are familiar with Pre-workout supplements, then it usually feels kind of like those, where you just feel amped up. You will definitely be too amped up to just sit down or go to sleep. Do yourself a favor and don’t burn this strain before going to bed.
The motivation to get things done should kick in as this strain begins to work its magic. You can definitely use this for working out or doing any physical type of work and it will provide effective pain relief for sure.
If you’re like me and work from your computer, then take a slow strain along with Hyper Hippo. Just trust me on this one!
You will definitely also feel the social effects that fast strains are infamous for. Don’t be surprised if you start walking around with a big goofy smile across your face and this sudden urge to just want to talk to people starts creeping up on you.
If you burn too much like I did once, you’ll find that you talk too fast and almost won’t be able to catch your breath which can be a little awkward.
STEP 3: Go Out There and Kick Some Butt!
Once the aroma from the strain has begun it will literally pick you up off your feet. Now make sure you use your new-found energy and motivation for the good of man-kind, or at least the sake of productivity.
Now’s the time to do the dirty dishes that have been piling up for the last 2 weeks, or that report you have been procrastinating on.
Once you have accomplished everything from your To-Do list for the day, go out to the park by yourself or somewhere with friends and enjoy being a social butterfly and making conversation with strangers and people from all walks of life.
You won’t regret it. I promise!
You’ll want to make some new friends, make somebody’s day, do anything except sit alone at your house doing nothing productive and binge-watching TV shows.
To Wrap Up This Review…
You have already read about all the great things that Green Maeng Da has to offer. The motivation, the energy, the good mood, the social butterfly effect, you name it!
But just like any other fast strain it has its downsides. Similar to Rockstar Hippo, you can get antsy and irritated from burning too much. I remember burning some Hyper Hippo and being so impatient and infuriated when somebody was taking too long on the equipment I wanted at the gym.
This is usually countered by taking it with a slow strain or not taking too much. The fast amped feeling can also become much more than just irritation and cause anxiety instead but these side effects can largely be avoided by following the proper guidelines of burning Kratom.
All in all, for a fast strain, I rate this specific green vein Kratom strain a solid 5/5. You will undoubtedly require a little trial-and-error to find your optimum amount but when you do figure it out, it’s unbeatable. 🙂
Hyper Hippo is one of the most popular strains sold by Happy Hippo Herbals. And with Happy Hippo being one of the best, if not THE best Kratom vendor, for reasons I explain in this post, you know you’re onto a winner.
