It’s eight o’clock Monday morning. You’re not really looking forward to another grueling week of working your 9-5 job and having to deal with all those pesky co-workers or the boss that just won’t get off your back and leave you alone.
So you turn on your computer, while you sip your morning coffee and refresh your social media profiles for the tenth times in a row. Every inch of your body is screaming with dread, you’d rather just sit and relax in your pajamas at home all day instead of going to your boring depressing dead end job.
But then you remember those darn electricity bills you still haven’t paid yet and the credit card company that keeps harassing you every Saturday morning telling you to pay the debt that had been piling up for the last two years.
Those bills aren’t going to pay themselves, somebody has to.
So you sigh and think to yourself, “If only I could somehow get through this day faster…why, even if there was a way to make it more enjoyable…”
Luckily for you, you’re not the Average Joe or Mary Plain Jane. You have a special tool in your emergency arsenal for days like this. You got good ole’ Kratom, but not any Kratom strain would do.
No way Jose!
A day like this calls for Maeng Da Kratom and, more specifically, Rockstar Hippo to bring out the energetic fun rockstar in you.
What is Maeng Da Kratom?
Maeng da Kratom strains originated in Thailand but like other strains, you will now find Indonesian and Malaysian varieties available. Rather than being an original plant or strain itself, the word Maeng Da actually means “pimp” or “pimp grade” in Thai and is what some people would even refer to as a “marketing gimmick” to describe these particular strains that have been specifically cross-bred for a higher alkaloid content.
With this in mind, it’s probably easy to see why this is arguably one of most famous and popular category of strains. Maeng Da Kratom effects are usually on the stronger side (fast), long-lasting and consist of everything you’d want from such a Kratom strain; stimulation, increased energy, a heightened sense of well-being and pain reduction.
Like other varieties, Maeng Da Kratom is the broad name that can be further broken down based on the color, specifically red, green and white vein. (They technically all come from red leaves, but the variations in the drying process during production is what produces the variations in color.)
Red Maeng Da’s apparently have the highest volume of alkaloid content compared to other strains, so while all Maeng Da Kratom strains are “fast”, red vein variety’s are often the most potent. Learn more about a red vein Kratom here.
Green Maeng Da’s are seemingly the most commonly available and popular. I’m not sure which comes first there, but there’s no doubt they deserve their popularity. You’ll find a good green vein write-up here.
In my experience, white Maeng Da produces effects somewhere between the above two. This may be down to personal experience but honestly, for this reason, it’s probably my most favorite strain. It would honestly be a great introductory Maeng Da Kratom if you’re trying for the first time, or definitely one to add to your arsenal.

As the previous name of “Rockstar Hippo” implies, Happy Hippo’s White Maeng Da is for those that want to work hard, play hard and party like a rockstar. It’s definitely one of the most extraordinarily potent fast strains found on the internet, and a total game changer for those who dare to try it.
Rockstar Hippo is actually known as Elite White Maeng da in the Kratom world. It’s an outstanding strain for anyone looking for the fast stimulating effects or a natural safe pain relief alternative to pharmaceutical drugs.
Effects: What Can I Expect After Burning This Strain?
Usually within about 5-15 minutes of burning this strain, you will begin to feel the clean stimulant energy starting to kick in similar to caffeine.
Honestly speaking from my experience, most “fast” strains tend to make me a little more hyper and talk too much. Definitely a plus for those that have a sales job or a job that requires you to think on your feet and deal with people. The rush of energy and stimulation can of course sometimes make you a little antsy though.
There have been many instances where I’m out shopping or hanging out with some friends after burning some Rockstar Hippo and I find myself unable to stop talking and consistently hopping from one social interaction to the other.
It’s pretty useful if you are someone that likes to hang out a lot in the night life environment where you need your social skills and “mood” to bring your “A” game to the party.
A way better alternative to killing your liver with alcohol to “get in the mood” if you ask me.
But life is not all fun and games or partying hard till 7 a.m in the morning.
You also have to get serious and get down to business, and yes you guessed it… white Maeng Da Kratom is also useful in those situations where you have to wear your big boy pants and give the world a mean look to let everyone know you are not fooling around.
In fact, Maeng da Kratom is referred to as the “Working-Man’s” Kratom in Thailand for a reason. Southeast Asian farmers use it for the potent and stimulating effects of this “fast” strain to help them have enough energy and focus to do their manual labor tiring job for 12+ hours a day.
If you are a gym rat like me, then this is perfect for your gym days instead of loading yourself up with chemically enhanced workout formulas.
Now on the other hand, if your life isn’t as exciting and you work a desk job where you’re required to be sitting for the most part of the day, you’ll need to learn how to control the stimulating effects that this strain has to offer and mold it to fit your needs.
It’s perfect to help you get through a long boring day and have you in a “happy skippy” cheery mood.
That Definitely Sounds Awesome But Everything Comes With a Price. Are There Any Side Effects?
You’re a smart cookie aren’t you? Yes everything does come with a price and like any other compound, there are small drawbacks but the positives outweigh the negatives.
Aside from the basic Kratom minor side effects that may be produced from either taking too much or not following a proper dosing schedule, Maeng Da White’s stimulating aroma can be a bit annoying at times to say the least. Not always, but the surge of exhilarating feeling you get from this strain can sometimes cause you to be a little antsy if you are not doing much that day.
In fact, I might even say it can cause a little irritation from time to time. Your tolerance to people’s B.S might be lower than usual and you may get irritated when that old lady in front of you on the sidewalk is walking too slow.
Don’t sweat it though, you can easily bottle up your irritation and you won’t be going on any “roid rage” any time soon.
For those of you who are prone to anxiety, just like caffeine it might cause you to be more anxious. It’s rare but it happens. Anybody that has experience with anxiety knows that any stimulating drug that raises your heartbeat can mimic that of an anxiety attack.
At most, the anxious feelings if they ever do occur are mild. You seriously have nothing to worry about as long as you dose your Kratom correctly and make sure you are burning high quality Kratom. You should be able to keep most of these minor side effects at bay.
A bad Kratom day once in a blue moon should never ruin your experience or opinion of a “Fast” white vein Maeng da Kratom strain like Rockstar Hippo.
What is a Recommended Maeng Da Dosage?
I find for most people including myself that about 5 grams of this stuff is the “sweet” spot. Make sure to experiment and always start off with 2 grams when ever you try any new strain and slowly burn a couple more grams every half an hour to an hour depending on how you feel.
What might be a “sweet spot” dose for me as a man might be a huge dose for a small petite 5’2 female.
This strain is also now available as Kratom capsules, found here. Each capsule is 550mg.
I’m a huge fan of mixing Kratom strains to maximize my experience. Mixing this with a slow strain such as Yellow Sumatra, Yellow Indo or even Bali Kratom will usually balance out the “hyperactive” feeling you might get from Rockstar and make for a more smoother euphoric “warm” experience.
To Sum Up This White Maeng Da Review…
So there you have it! A Rockstar Hippo review; premium Maeng da for sale. It’s one of the best “Fast” Kratom strains found on the internet offering a great White Maeng Da experience. I’ll give it a 5/5 because I can’t count how many times I have used this strain and it has never failed to make my day way more fun and enjoyable.
Definitely go give it a try. If you have never been a big fan of “Fast” strains or never tried them I’m willing to bet you $100,000 (in Monopoly Money) that this will totally change your mind.
What are you still doing here? Get off your butt, go out there, and be the best Rockstar you can be!
