Kratom 101: Strains

We found this great article online to help with the different strains of Kratom. Hope it helps….


Red for bed

White for flight

Green for in-between 

Color is determined by the vein of the leaf before it’s dried and made into a fine powder. There are MANY varieties within these three categories on the market now.

White Vein Strains: These are generally your more energetic and stimulating strains. People who struggle with fatigue and exhaustion, waking up in the morning, and/or daytime drowsiness may find white strains beneficial. Some say these strains are too stimulating, especially for people prone to anxiety or sensitive to caffeine. If you suffer from anxiety or get the “jitters” from caffeine, you might want to stay away from white strains or use them only when blended with others. White Sumatra is a popular choice.

Green Vein Strains: These are usually good for both pain control and energy. They are not too energetic or too sedating, so many use these for pain during the day. Green strains are often used to extend the life of white or red veins of kratom. Green Malay is considered by many to be one of the longest-lasting strains with good pain relieving effects. Many blends utilize green veins because of their synergy with other strains. They are very good for mixing and effects seem to last longer.

Red Vein Strains: These are best for pain relief and relaxation. Reds can be effective with many chronic and acute pain conditions. While lower doses are more stimulating, this varies from person to person. Many find red strains to be more relaxing and sedating and use them to help with anxiety and insomnia as well. Red veins are also a good variety to mix with more energetic strains to avoid the sedating effect when pain control is your primary objective. Red Borneo and Bali are good choices for pain.
