Understanding the various types of kratom strains can be a little confusing. When we say types we are actually referring to strains not forms of kratom. There are hundreds of strains to choose from, but which is right for you? By the end of this guide, you will be able to make a decision on which kratom strain you would like to try.

    So, What is Kratom Good For?

    The better question is, what type of support are you seeking? The kratom industry is a bit tricky in the fact that there is not a lot of scientific research. 

    Only a licensed physician will be able to give you recommendations on strains. While you may Google and find some topics surrounding kratom, you should never take an individual's first-hand encounter as safe advice. 

    We ask all of our customers to seek the advice of a medical professional before making a purchase. 

    They will be able to go over your past and present medical history and ensure that kratom is a good fit for you. They will also be able to determine which strains may help with your wellness goals. No other person can give you this advice. 

    What is a Kratom Strain?

    All kratom comes from Mitragyna speciosa, but the alkaloid profile will vary drastically from one strain to the next. 

    So, what is a kratom strain? The reference to strains means that they contain the same genetic makeup but have a different chemical composition also known as phenotypes.

    Let’s take a tomato plant as an example. You know there are tons of different types of tomatoes. Some may be red, yellow, purple, orange, and so on. However, all of them are known to be tomatoes. 

    When the genetics of beefsteak and cherry tomatoes plants are compared they have the same makeup. However, what differs is the way these genes are expressed. This causes a variation in the tomato plants.

    As a result, there are tons of different tomato plants that vary in size and shape. Kratom plants will share the same genetic code but every strain will have a unique alkaloid profile. 

    Different Strains of Kratom Explained!

    If you are new to the kratom industry you may be used to seeing various vein colors but not understanding what they mean. Kratom is offered in white, green, red, and yellow vein colors. 

    Red, white, and green veins all occur naturally and will signify how mature the leaf is. The leaves will be harvested according to the vein color. 

    Do not get too caught up on the vein color but it is an important aspect to understand. Below we explain a bit more about each vein color, so you can make the most informed choice on which to try. 

    White Vein Kratom

    Kratom has a vein that runs down the middle. This vein will transform as the leaf ages. With this transformation comes a variant in alkaloids. White vein kratom is subtle in the support that it offers. It is often a good strain for those who are new to the world of kratom. Our white vein kratom strains include:

    White vein kratom is typically offered by most vendors. However, you only want to work with vendors who are approved by the American Kratom Association. 

    This will ensure you are getting a product that has been tested for quality and purity. If you are looking for more robust support, you may want to opt for green or red vein kratom. 

    White Vein Kratom contains low amounts of 7-Hydroxymitragynine. Which are great for those who want a product that is subtle in support.

    Green Vein Kratom 

    Green vein kratom signifies the midpoint in the leaf's lifecycle. It is perfect in-between white and red vein kratom. It offers more robust support than a white vein but is not as potent as a red vein. Our green vein kratom strains include:

    Green vein kratom strains are very popular among kratom enthusiasts. It is a perfect blend of white and red. If you are unsure where to start white or green vein kratom is the best choice.

      Red Vein Kratom 

      Red vein kratom comes from the most mature leaves. It is also known as the most potent form of kratom. While many people think that the various vein colors come from different trees they do not. 

      All the vein colors are present on the same tree and are harvested at various points during the leaf’s lifecycle. Kratom leaves begin their life with a white vein as the leaf ages that vein will transform from white to green and then finally red. 

      There is one more vein color, Yellow vein kratom, but it does not occur naturally. It is created through a specialized drying process. Our red vein kratom strains include:

      Red vein kratom is the most robust form of kratom available on the market. It is potent in the alkaloids that are offered and the main reason why so many opt for red vein kratom. 

      Red kratom is not for everyone. Just because it is the most potent form of kratom does not make it the best solution for you. 

      Red Vein Kratom is known to have high levels of 7-Hydroxymitragynine. This is partly the reason why red strains are much more potent than green or white strains. 

      Yellow Vein Kratom

      Yellow vein kratom does not occur naturally. Some vendors market their yellow strains as Gold. So you may see it listed as Gold vein kratom whether than yellow vein kratom. This type of kratom is created during an extended drying period. 

      As you know, it is during the drying period that the alkaloids will be locked in. So, this is a very important process. This drying process will determine the outcome of the vein color as well. When you dry red vein kratom for extended periods the leaves will begin to turn yellow. This method is typically done by placing the leaves in direct sunlight. 

      Yellow vein kratom strains are rare and not offered by all vendors. This is mainly because it takes extra know-how on the farmers' part to create these kratom strains. 

      So, not all vendors will work with farmers who can produce this type of kratom. We offer the following Yellow vein kratom strains:

      If you are seeking yellow vein kratom we carry the most popular strains in both powders and capsules. Yellow Vietnam is probably the most heavily sought-after yellow strain. It is rare which is why so many are seeking it.

It is the cream of the crop and you will find that most vendors offer Maeng Da in all vein colors. Remember, just because a strain is strong does not make it the right choice for you!
