Kratom is an incredible plant that grows in the tropical climates of many Southeast Asian countries. It has benefited human beings for hundreds of years. It is a resourceful, versatile, tropical, alkaloid-rich plant, which means its naturally present components distinguish this tree from others. Depending on how the Kratom tree is cultivated and when its leaves are collected, the Kratom product will have different physiological and physical attributes. These factors determine Kratom’s “strain,” which is usually identified by a color and a source region.
In this weekly Krave Kratom blog, we will explore different strains of Kratom and learn what they do. Let’s quickly jump on that.
Different Kratom Strains
The color of the Kratom strain is the most important Kratom strain characteristic: white, green, or red. Outside of these three varieties, you may encounter differently-named strains, but when the types are further broken down, it generally refers to the geographical locations from where different Kratom strains were sourced.
Vein-Based Kratom Strains
White Vein Kratom
White-Veined Kratom is the middle ground between green and red Kratom. The leaves are harvested from young Kratom trees and sought after by those looking for an uplifting Kratom experience. After harvesting, the leaves are completely dried indoors with no light shining on them.
Because it is harvested at the earliest stage (except for Maeng Da), white vein Kratom has the highest mitragynine content of any strain. As a result, white veins may be unusually potent, and new Kratom enthusiasts should begin with a green vein strain. White Kratom is thought to have a mild stimulant effect. It is linked to an increase in energy and alertness.
Red Veined Kratom
Red Veined Kratom, one of the most popular Kratom strains, is best known for its sedative properties. Its intensity makes it difficult for beginners to appreciate, but it is rewarding for those who are interested in and have tried other types of Kratom.
During the drying process, Red Kratom leaves are exposed to direct sunlight or a UV lamp. Red Kratom can also be fermented during the manufacturing process to produce different Kratom products. Red Kratom is thought to have an intense sedative effect, along with calming effects. Some claim that Red Kratom is the best for pain relief. They are likely to be the most potent of all Kratom strains.
Green Veined Kratom
Harvested in the middle stage of the Kratom tree’s life cycle, Green Veined Kratom is said to have similar stimulant effects to White Kratom. The leaves are typically dried indoors first, often in an air-conditioned room, before being moved outside to finish drying.
It has a more subtle effect than White Vein Kratom, but it is still considered a stimulant. Like White Vein Kratom, it can provide a mild energy boost as a stimulant, but it may also provide the user with better mental clarity to focus on tasks that require more endurance.
Geographical Location-Based Kratom Strains
Maeng Da Kratom
Maeng Da is a Kratom variety that was originally grown in Thailand (though growers now replicate the farming practices to grow Maeng Da varieties elsewhere). Maeng Da is carefully selected to be of exceptional quality and potency.
As the name implies, Thai Kratom is derived from Thailand’s untamed tropical jungles. The unique soil types, high humidity, and fertility of these jungles are ideal for encouraging growth and development. Because of its versatility and distinct qualities, Thai Kratom is one of the most sought-after Kratom strains.
This Kratom variety is primarily found in the jungles of southern and western Borneo. It is the first Kratom strain we have encountered since learning about Kratom. Bali was standardized as the herb itself for many decades. It was named after the city of Bali, which served as a transportation hub when the Kratom initially started to be exported.
It has its origin somewhere in the dense tropical jungles of northern Borneo Island. It is a well-composed strain with great comforting properties.
Malay Kratom originated in Malaysia’s dense tropical jungles. It has large oval-shaped leaves with red, green, and white veins. It is high in biochemical compounds, which give the leaves a dark green color. Furthermore, the strain is well-known for its exceptional properties.
These Kratom strains have been widely popular in the Kratom fraternity. To understand which strain is going to suit your purposes the best, it is best to try out a small batch or a sample of the Kratom strain to understand its effects better.
