What are the Various Kratom Veins Available?

A kratom tree, also known as Mitragyna speciosa, produces leaves with various colors of veins. The colors include red, green, white, or yellow. Here is a breakdown of each vein. 

Red Kratom Veins

The red Kratom leaves are mature and contain highly balanced alkaloid levels. These two factors make red vein kratom the most potent out of all the colors available.

Green Vein Kratom

Green Vein Kratom leaves fall in the middle of the maturity scale. This refers to the time at which the leaves were picked off the tree.  

White Vein Kratom

These particular leaves are picked early in their maturity cycle. Compared to Green Vein Kratom, the White variety packs a punch in terms of potency. Some of the strains are even more potent than the Yellow Vein Kratom.

Yellow Vein Kratom

It’s hard to categorize Yellow Vein Kratom because some of the strains result from a mixture of two different colors. There’s also a unique drying process than can be done to create this type of kratom leaf. Regardless, Yellow Vein Kratom is heavily advertised. It’s also powerful in terms of its potency.
