What Kratom Strain is Best for you?Meg Koster
Many people ask us what strain of kratom is best for them. Since everyone is different it takes some individual trial and error to find the best fit for you, but this is some background we typically give to customers who ask us this question.
Mitragyna Speciosa (aka Kratom) is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family native to Southeast Asia. It’s been used for medical purposes for thousands of years and is indigenous to Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. Kratom is interesting because it can have both calming and stimulant-like effects. In lower quantities, between one to two grams, will have effects very similar to a shot of espresso or a cup of coffee. In larger quantities, four to five grams, it can help with body aches and pains. We’re often told by customers that it can improve your mood, manage chronic pain, and even help with opiate addiction.
How to Pick Your Kratom Strain
Certain veins and strains are more more uplifting or calming than others. Our experience is that with Kratom, Green means GO, and Red means STOP!
Green veins are good for energy. On the other hand, red veins are for relaxation and pain management. White veins tend to have the same priorities as green.
Here are some of our favorite examples:
- Green veins: Green Maenga Da, Malay, and Full Spectrum.
- Red vein: Bali, Red Maenga Da, Indo, and Vietnam.
- White vein: Borneo and Thai.
