An inauspicious plant has been sweeping the nation.
What plant is that, you ask?
Or if you prefer its scientific name; Mitragyna speciosa. The plant is a relative of coffee and its leaves have been said to act as both a stimulant and a sedative.
Like any plant species, there are a variety of strains within the family. This article will focus on Red Thai Kratom and Red Bali Kratom.
This plant has been popular in South Asia for a long time; traditionally by field workers who loved it while working in the fields under the hot sun.
Read on to learn more about a few different strains of this fascinating plant, and how to get your hands on it.
Red, White, and Green
Kratom types are typically divided by the color of their stem and veins; red, white, or green. These colors let you know what to expect from the plant.
Each strain contains different alkaloids that give different results. With that being the case, no two strains are the same.
Fortunately for all the inquisitive minds out there, research on Kratom has increased since the plant has gained popularity in the United States.
The difference in color of the veins are indicative of the age of the plant.
Kratom with white veins is the young plant, kratom with green veins means the plant is maturing, and kratom with red veins indicates the plant is fully matured.
As the kratom plant matures, different levels of alkaloids will build within the leaves and stem. These different alkaloids define what effect the kratom will have. Giving each strain and the different vein colors unique properties.
The red vein variety is consistently one of the best sellers on the market.
Many times the names of the strains will reflect where the plant was grown. Red Thai Kratom will have been grown in Thailand, while Red Bali Kratom comes from, you guessed it, Bali!
Once you understand the labeling process, navigating Kratom strains is super easy.
Much of the kratom that comes to the United States is grown in either Indonesia or Malaysia. The leaves are often dried and ground into a powder, which is the most common form of Kratom.
Red Thai Kratom
Red Thai Kratom is known in Kratom circles to be one of the strongest and most popular of the strains. These strains are alkaloid rich, often coming in with a Mitragynine content of 1.6 percent.
Its effects are often compared to those of Bali strains, providing a balanced combination of alertness and relief.
The strain shares similar effects to other red kratom strains, but it also produces qualities that may be more significant since the plant is fully matured.
Red Bali Kratom
Red Bali Kratom shares some traits with Red Thai. However, in many cases it is slightly more affordable since it grows abundantly and is widely available. For many years it was one of the only strains available which may lend to its legacy status in Kratom circles.
Its popularity may also have something to do with its availability and consistency through the test of time. The Bali strains are known for having an ideal balance of qualities that kratom seekers look for.
All Kratom has unique combinations of alkaloids. Red Bali is known to have some of the highest concentrations of 40 different alkaloids. It is said to be the most potent compared to all other strains.
If you are looking for something that will fly off the shelves, either of these strains would be good choices as they have remained popular for years.
