Understanding 16 Kratom Strains

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.

Kratom Strains

The Four Kratom Veins

A kratom tree, also known as Mitragyna Speciosa, produces leaves with various colors of veins, and those colors include red, green, white, or yellow. The kratom leaves are harvested and ground into a fine powder, which can then be used to provide overall wellness to your life. Each of these veins is said to produce slightly different support. Here is a breakdown of each vein.

Red Vein Kratom

Red kratom is created from the most mature leaves and is noted as having the highest level of alkaloids. It differs from other kratom veins in that it can be grown in a wide variety of locations, from humid jungles to arid regions. Most people opt for this type of kratom due to its high concentration of potency. 

Green Vein Kratom

Green kratom is harvested midway through the kratom tree’s maturity cycle. It is the top choice of kratom users who prefer a vein that falls between red or white vein kratom.

White Vein Kratom

White kratom is picked early in the maturity cycle. This gives more subtle support than other vein colors. If you are new to the world of kratom you may want to start with a white strain to see if it offers the support you need. 

Yellow Vein Kratom

Yellow vein kratom technically doesn’t exist as a recognized kratom vein. In reality, it is an offshoot of white kratom that gets its golden color from the drying process. It offers the same type of support as green strains do. 

  • Gold Maeng Da Kratom Powder

Kratom Origins

There are many factors to consider when entering the world of kratom. The Mitragyna Speciosa tree originates from various Southeast Asia countries, including Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Papua New Guinea. 

It is related to the coffee plant and supports overall balance. Kratom is characterized by the vein color, strain, and where it originates. You will notice that most strains include the vein color as well as its origins name. 

Now let’s look at 16 common strains of kratom. Keep in mind that these strains mostly all have white, green, and red varieties. You can find out more about kratom vendors by visiting our blog.

16 Different Kratom Strains

Below we have listed some of the most popular strains that the market currently has to offer. This is not a full list of strains but most vendors will offer them in a variety of vein colors.

1 BORNEO KRATOM

This kratom is native to Borneo Island, which has a rainforest climate. White Borneo kratom tends to be more potent than Green and Red Borneo kratom. Red varieties have a stronger aroma than the others. 

We Offer:

2 CAMBODIAN KRATOM

Cambodian kratom originated in Cambodia, but it is also grown in areas with similar climates, such as Vietnam and Laos. The Cambodian variety is one of the hybrid strains, and it’s a combination of red and green vein horned leaves. This combination is rare, so it makes this particular strain hard to get. It also has similar genetic properties as the Maeng da strain. Check out our blog where you can find tips on how to make kratom tea

3 DRAGON KRATOM

The dragon strain shares a lot of its DNA with the Thai strain. It also contains a high alkaloid count. Originating from only one plantation, it’s not easy to come by.

We Offer:

4 ELEPHANT KRATOM 

The Elephant strain is also available in all vein colors. Sporting large leaves that look like an elephant’s ear, the Elephant strain contains a high indole property.

We Offer:

5 HORN KRATOM

The Horn strain is a rarity in the industry, as it is not as readily available as other types of kratom. You can find it in all the popular vein colors. This allows you to choose a strain that will cater to your specific needs. The shape of the leaves gives this strain a robust alkaloid content that is highly sought after. It is not grown in very many regions which means quantities are low and not available to all vendors.

6 HULU KAPUAS KRATOM

The plants that are used to make this strain of kratom are rare, primarily because they’re located on an island with few inhabitants. This type of kratom is offered in all the vein colors. Each one of these strains is special because they house one-of-a-kind properties. Many claim the Green Hulu Kapuas strain is one of the rarest.

8 JONG KONG KRATOM

The Jong Kong strain of kratom offers up a special alkaloid concentration. Available in all 3 vein colors. The Green version has been dubbed Maeng da’s little brother due to its potency.

Maeng da is one of the most potent strains. The Maeng da strain was “grafted” together using two different sets of leaves. This is a common technique when modifying and creating strains. Like almost any other strain, it’s available in many forms. Red Maeng Da in particular is a very popular choice among avid kratom users, as it is very strong in its potency. 

We Offer:

12 MALAY KRATOM

There are two different types of Malay Kratom strains. You have the Standard Green Malay and the Super Green Malay. Comparing the two, Super Green Malay is a little more subdued in terms of alkaloid content. After Maeng-da, Malay is the next most popular strain to use. It also has an aroma that sets it apart from other strains. Check out our blog where you can read more about the differences between kava vs kratom

13 RIAU KRATOM

Red Riau Kratom tends to be the easiest to find. Featuring a musky aroma, it’s considered a popular choice among those who enjoy kratom. It’s also a more moderate option if you’re looking for something less potent than other strains.

14 SUMATRA KRATOM

Found on the Sumatra islands located in Indonesia, this strain of kratom grows exceptionally well. These islands receive a ton of rain and loads of humidity. It’s available in the Green and Red versions, but the White version is the most robust. It’s so potent that many consider it the most potent White strain available anywhere.

Finding The Best Strains

If you are looking for the best kratom strains of kratom then you have come to the right place. Not only do we offer the highest quality products, but we also make sure to offer a wide variety. This allows you to choose a strain based on your needs rather than settling for something that we have. 

Oasis Kratom is the number one vendor for your kratom needs. We offer strain in all vein colors, and we also stock alternatives to kratom. This means that if you are a kratom fan and live in an area where kratom is banned, you can still find an herb to help with your wellness support. 

Be sure to take your time and look through our catalog and let us know if you have any questions. We have an amazing customer support team who is always ready to help you out. It is not a matter of finding the best on the market but also finding a product that will suit your needs. 

We asked that all of our customers consult with their regular physicians before making a purchase. This will ensure that this herb will not interact with any medications you are on or any medical conditions you may be treated for. 

Your doctor is the only one who can legally offer you advice on kratom. They will be able to help you determine which strain to try, as well as make recommendations on dosage. You will find that dosing information is not available on the packaging and this is because of the legalities surrounding kratom. This is why we ask our customers to be open and honest with their physicians about kratom. Doing this will help you gain the most from your products. 

Kratom is an herb and it may be one that your physician is not highly familiar with. Try at your next physical talking to your doctor about kratom. Having a conversation with your physician will open a window of opportunity for them to learn more about this herb and be able to help you with your wellness support. 

Before you know it, your doctor will be able to offer recommendations to help improve relaxation, mood, energy, calm, depression, stress, sleep, and much more. These are things that have to come from a licensed physician, not a vendor. Be wary of vendors who use language such as effective or stimulating. 

It all comes down to preference. One strain is not better than another. So, you have to ultimately determine which strain is better for you! Do not go off what is working for your friend because they may require longer-lasting support than you do. 

As far as the market goes, Maeng Da kratom tends to be the most popular strain among our customers. Maeng Da is a funny one because its name does not indicate where it is from. It was given this name because it is such a robust strain. 

Maeng Da in Thai translates to “Pimp Grade”. This implies that this strain of kratom is very strong in potency. 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! 

While we can not give you recommendations, you can check out forums to see what others are 

saying about various forms of kratom. This will give you an idea of what they experience. However, you should never take this advice as safe. So, use extreme caution when reading anecdotal reporting. Forums about kratom help users understand the herb a bit more. 

Buy Kratom Powder Online

You can purchase kratom from a local shop or online. Most people will opt for an online vendor over a local shop. This is because they can offer a larger variety of products and they have better quality kratom. 

Now that you understand more about the different types of strains, you have all the information you need to try them for yourself and see which ones works for you. All of our kratoms are lab-tested at least 9 times to ensure you are getting the purest kratom free from pesticides and disease. On our website, all of our pricing is consistent across the board. This allows you to truly select a product based on your needs.  All of our strains are available wholesale or by grams. We offer 60g, 125g, 250g, 500g, 1kg, and 5kg. 

Check to make sure that kratom is legal in your state before trying to order online. In many states, kratom is still illegal such as Wisconsin, and parts of Illinois. Oftentimes people go to buy kratom but do not realize that it is illegal in their area. Be sure to take some time to learn about the laws surrounding kratom.
