Let’s dive in.
The Differences Between Kratom Veins & Strains
Let’s dive right into what the difference is between kratom veins! There are three major kratom veins and a fourth that’s making its way onto the scene. They are:
- White Vein
- Green Vein
- Red Vein and,
- Yellow Vein (this is sometimes called Gold Vein)
Each of these veins has many subtypes, or strains, inside of it. However, each kratom vein tends to have a specific type of effect.
White Vein kratom is typically energizing and focusing while Green Vein kratom is usually good for elevating positivity and sociability. Meanwhile, Red Vein kratom tends to be relaxing and calming. Yellow Vein kratom usually sits between white vein and green vein in terms of effects, with lower levels of energy and positivity.
Where do kratom veins come from? Kratom vein colors are literally a reference to the veins of the kratom leaves. As a kratom plant matures, the veins inside the leaves change color- from white, to green, to red. White vein leaves are the youngest and most energizing, while red vein leaves are the oldest and most relaxing.
Kratom strains are more specific types of kratom and are typically named based on the color of the vein and the region that they’re from. For example, a White Bali would signify a white vein strain from Bali and a Red Indo would signify a red vein from Indonesia. Green Malay would point to a green vein from Malaysia, and so on!
The effects of these strains are definitely impacted by their place of origin, as the plant accumulates a different alkaloid content based on the soil & region it is grown in.
