Have you ever heard of kratom?
Grown in tropical Southeast Asia, this tree is actually part of the coffee family. But the product they produce is entirely different from coffee beans, and it’s becoming more and more popular in America.
Kratom powder is a natural medicine that can be used for a variety of reasons. Each different strain of kratom comes with unique benefits, so you need to make sure you’re using the right one for you.
For more information, take a look at our guide on the different types of kratom available.
What Are the Different Types of Kratom?
Before getting into the actual types, let’s look at how kratom is categorized.
First, there are three different main strains; red, white, and green. These refer to when the leaves of the kratom tree are picked and how they’re processed, creating different effects and benefits.
From there, they’re then categorized by the area they’re grown in. It may come as a surprise to hear that the same strains of kratom grown in different places can have different traits. So, when looking to buy kratom, you need to take into account its color strain as well as its origin location.
White Vein Kratom
The strongest type of kratom is often white vein strains. It’s usually not recommended for first-timers as its effects are quite intense. But for those used to kratom, it can be a great type to try and give you a big hit of benefits.
White vein kratom comes from younger leaves on the kratom tree, when the veins are still white. It’s mainly known for its stimulant effects, which can make you feel more alert and with an increase in energy. It also has a strong aroma, so be warned of that if you choose this strain.
Red Vein Kratom
If you’re looking for the best type of kratom to help with anxiety, you should try red kratom. This is a very popular choice for both beginners and long-time kratom users. Its potency is much less than other strains and it doesn’t have stimulating effects, which is one of the reasons for its wide popularity.
Red vein kratom is mostly known for its possible calming effects. If you want to feel more mellowed out and less anxious, this strain is a great choice. It’s also been known to have some pain-relieving effects, although it should never be used in place of prescribed medication.
For more intense pain relief, you should try Bentuangie kratom. This is a type of red kratom that has similar calming, sedative effects, but it’s pain-reducing benefits may be much stronger.
Green Vein Kratom
For a good middle-ground between white and red, try green vein kratom. It’s more potent than the red vein and can have some stimulating effects, but it’s nowhere near as strong as white vein strains.
When trying green kratom, you can expect a slight energy boost, but nothing too extreme. It’s mainly used for its ability to help you focus on tasks, making work, or studying much easier. If you find yourself spending hours on a simple task, green vein kratom could help you speed things up!
Other Types of Kratom
Alongside these three main color types, there are plenty of variations. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular choices.
Maeng-Da is a type of kratom native to Thailand and it’s very popular. It’s a very high-quality kratom that has a blend of both red vein and white vein strains. You can expect to feel more energized and focused when taking Maeng-Da kratom.
Bali kratom is a very high-quality and pure red vein strain. It comes from kratom trees grown on the island of Bali in Indonesia and has a mild to moderate potency. It’s actually not as similar to red kratom as you might expect, showing the importance of knowing exactly what the effects of your type of kratom will be before taking it.
Bali kratom is more stimulating than normal red kratom, providing a subtle energy boost and feelings of euphoria. It also has the pain-relieving benefits of red kratom.
Red Vein Thai Kratom
Red vein Thai is very similar to the Bali kratom but is also similar to regular red vein kratom. Think of this as a middle-ground between the two.
Green Malaysian Kratom
Green Malaysian is quite a unique type of kratom. It blends the pain-relieving benefits of red vein kratom with the energy boost of white kratom. You can also expect your mood to be lifted, creating a feeling of euphoria.
The effects of Green Malaysian are usually long-lasting. This makes it more suited to those who have already tried kratom and are familiar with its effects.
Yellow Vein Kratom
Yellow vein kratom is named after a color, just like the three main types. However, this isn’t made from a specific type of kratom leaf as those are. Instead, it’s produced when two other strains, such as green and red, are combined.
