What's the differences between Kratom veins? Red for Bed, White for Light, Green for Inbetween.

What types of kratom are their?

Kratom types are generally divided into three different colors. Red, White or Green-vein kratom powders. This separation is dependent on the color of the stem and the vein of the leaf. If you look closely at kratom leaves, you'll find that the stem and vein have a certain tint of color. This color determines the effects the kratom leaf will have on a users body and mind. A different color means a different effect and a different chemical composition. The veins and stem are removed during the grinding process, to create a smooth and fine powder substance.

The different kratom strains thrive at their best in different conditions and contain various alkaloids which each produce their own desired effects. The way we like to put it is, "Red is for bed, white for light, green for inbetween."

Red Vein Kratom

Red Vein Kratom leaves have red colored stem and veins. Red kratom is certainly the best selling and most widely available strain of kratom on the market. The red vein kratom plant grows abundantly in Southeast Asia and is slightly more resistant than other Mitragyna Speciosa trees. Some studies have claimed that the substances that give rise to the red color of the veins also ensure that the plant is less susceptible to external predators.

Red vein kratom powder from a trusted vendor is great for beginners since red kratom strains tend to be relaxing and give off the most euphoria. It tends to give the user feelings of well-being and optimism, while also providing a peace of mind. Red Kratom powder tends to be the best for a sleep aid and pain relief, helping with insomnia, along with aches and pains that might keep you up throughout the night. It relaxes the muscles and some people use it to replace pharmaceutical painkillers. Red Kratom is also the most used for helping prevent opiate withdrawal symptoms.

Within the red veins, there are few differences in the effects and properties. Some strains such as the Red Sumatra and Red Bali have a strong sedative effect while others like the Red Dragon can produce an elated mood and provide energy at low doses.

Some popular blends in this category include: Red BaliRed SumatraRed Maeng Da, and Red Dragon

White Vein Kratom

White vein kratom powders are known to be a stimulant and increase the users mood. Outside of the product lacking in product (usually if a company lets it sit on the shelf too long), the effects of each strain tends to depend on the user, which can vary in reason from their lifestyle and tolerance. The general consesus from our research and customers reviews however, gives us enough information to say white vein kratom is used to increase energy and motivation, which is a reason why our customers tend to replace their coffee in the morning with these types of kratom powder.

For people who're having a rough day, or just need a quick pick-me-up, this is the strain for you. We recommend avoiding this type of strain when it starts getting late in the day, to avoid having issues going to sleep.

Some popular kratom brands in this category include: White DragonWhite Maeng DaTrainwreck (not a full white, but also great for energy).

Green Vein Kratom

Green Veined Kratom can best be described as somewhere in between red and white kratom strains. It's a middle of the road energy booster, but also a decent pain killer and sedative as it builds.

People who experiment with green kratom powder report that it helps enhance their alertness, focus, and cognitive functions to stay in the groove for longer. Green vein strains are generally more subtle than the red or white veins. In general, they can be useful in treatment of pain and other discomforts, precisely because the green veins do not lead to drowsiness as quickly, which is often caused by other analgesic supplements and red strains.

Green kratom powders can be mixed with red or white kratom strains to create more rounded effects, ones that cater to you. When properly mixed it prevents the excessive anesthesia of the red veins and the overstimulation of the white veins, bringing a balanced blend.

Due to the green vein kratom being more balanced, it's often used to help social anxiety. You'll generally have more confidence, be more social, and not feel so stressed about others opinions. Therefore, green strains of kratom are popular during recreational activities such as a night out in town, especially in placement of alcohol. Green vein kratom makes you more talkative, friendly and cheerful. You will be more inclined to immerse yourself among people and social situations.

Red, white or green kratom?

Which kind of kratom is most appropriate for you depends on your personal preferences and the situation you're in. With kratom this can end up being quite complicated because the effects can vary within the same strain color. It depends on quality, location, climate, harvesting method etc. Not all red veins will have the same results between every person, this applies to the white and green veins as well.

This is why we recommend using a trusted vendor for kratom, one that can confirm the strain is what they say and the quality is there. Along with one that rotates product effectively, making sure to never have old and unused kratom powders.

The characteristics described in this article can best be considered as general guidelines for each kratom strain and color, everyone can react differently, this is just the overall consensus we've collected through our research into kratom and our customer testimonials. A great way to determine which kratom strain is best for you is to order a kratom sample pack. This ensures you get a nice variety, while saving some money and giving you a chance to figure out your favorite kratom strains!
