Different Strains of Kratom Explained

 Different Strains of Kratom Explained

Different types of Kratom strains are differentiated by How they are processed and prepared. There are many strain names of Kratom out of the three main varieties, but when broken down any further, it usually refers to the leaves from different Kratom strains that they were sourced from. Below is an outline of significant types of Kratom and its effects on knowing the purposes and differences. However, more detailed reviews of different kratom strains can be read here for better understanding of buying your right kratom form.

Types of Kratom Strains

Red Vein Kratom

The red vein is the most popular among the three strains. It is mostly used for its sedative effects. It can be used to relieve pain or give you a euphoria like feeling when you use it. Unlike the white one, this type of strain is processed using a lot of UV or sunlight when drying it. It can also be fermented when processing it to make bentuangie Kratom, and it is a slight variation from the red strain.

The red strain is known to be the three mellowest and can be classified as a stimulant. That means it is more approachable when compared to the other two. The known effects of the red strain are that it is a mild sedative. Some say it is the best pain reliever, although that is not scientifically proven or medically substituted as a medication.

White Vein Kratom

The White Kratom vein has an acquired taste when you compare it to the other strains. If you are a beginner, you may find it hard to appreciate it. Those that have tried the different types of strains will understand it more. It can be harvested when the leaves are still young; hence the veins are white. It is just like how white tea leaves are harvested when the leaves are young. After harvesting, the Kratom leaves are dried up indoors, where there is no light at all.

White Kratom is known as the most potent of the three when you don’t consider Maeng Da. Therefore, it is not the best for people using Kratom for the first time. Its stimulant effect is mild. When used in very low quantities, it is believed to make you alert and increase your energy levels.

Green Vein Kratom

The green strain is the middle ground between red and white. It can give you stimulant effects, just like the white one. The leaves are harvested when the plant has matured, and the leaves have a darker color. It is dried inside just like the white strain but in an air-conditioned room and later moved outside to complete drying. It has a more subtle effect when comparing it to the white strain, but it is still a stimulant. As a stimulant, it gives you an energy boost just like the white Kratom, but unlike the white strain, you get better mental clarity. That means you can focus on tasks with great endurance, unlike the other types of strains.

Other Varieties of Kratom Strains

The above three main strains of Kratom are classified mainly according to their effects on the users. However, there are other varieties of Kratom within the three strains. They may present a variation or even a blend of two or more strains boosting the differences like increased potency and a lasting effect. They include:

Yellow Vein Kratom

Like the three main strains, the yellow gets its name from the color but not from a specific leaf. It is produced when white and green or red and green are put together. The yellow is a blend of other strains of Kratom.

Maeng Da Kratom

It is a variety of Kratom that was first grown in Thailand but is now grown elsewhere. It is of high quality when compared to other primary types. It can be classified as both red and white vein strains and is known to boost your energy and give you a feeling of mental clarity.

Bentuangie Kratom

Bentuangie Kratom is classified under the red strain and is fermented during the drying process. It has the same sedative effects like the red strain, but users mostly use it to relieve extreme pain. It is known to be the best pain reliever.


Many other types of strains are named after they are sourced from like the Borneo, a white strain from Borneo Island, while Red Bali is the red strain but is grown in Bali Island in Indonesia.
