BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND...
A few months ago we asked some of the Approved Vendors to offer some discounts to our community. A lot of them graciously did. We have been asked to bring those discounts back. The following vendors would like to share the love for this forum with you. I know we all appreciate it.

Hey ILK :-h

I've got a question for any of the connoisseurs on here. I see a lot of places advertising "Yellow" strains, saying they're really rare and what not, but everything I've ever read claims that there are only red, white, and green veins of Kratom. I've also heard/read that the yellow strains are caused when the leaf falls to the ground...and where I'm from we call a yellow leaf on the ground a dead leaf. Any answers here as to what these Yellow strains are?

I read somewhere that a yellow is just a super white vein leaf. What "super" refers to, I don't know. I seen a picture of a Sumatra white plant and the vein did look a bit yellow. Someone else may be able to clarify this better than me, because I'm not too sure myself.

I've wondered about yellow vein, also. I've read it may be a 'fast' strain, but nothing conclusive.

Hmm, a really powerful white vein? That's a cool concept, that would make sense as to why they're rare and so potent then. I'm still going to remain skeptical until I get to the bottom of this :-?

What exactly do you mean by "Fast" Lerellen? As in energizing or not long lasting?

Yes, I've read 'fast' used interchangeably with energizing. So many term in the kratom world! I read somewhere a yellow strain is somewhere between green and white vein. Strange that yellows are sold by several vendors but are rarely defined.

You know what's weird is that I read that on another site shortly after asking! It was this Rooster Dating guy you may have seen on YouTube if you've ever searched the word Kratom on there. He defines Kratom as slow, medium, or fast. I've always heard relaxing, nuetral, or energizing when referring to the different levels of energy.

And yes exactly, that's what leads me to believe that it's not legitimate. Sold by a few vendors here and there, but there's no solid information on it anywhere. Seems a bit fishy to me...

Michael, oddly enough, I just got some yellow vein borneo from Skunk Ape (!), and it's great. I forgot I ordered it. Go figure!

I was told by a friend/vendor that yellows are when the leaves turn yellow like when a house plants leaves turn yellow. So If that's the case I'm assuming a yellow could be red, green, or white!!

Hmm, could you compare it to anything Lerellen?

And that would make sense Cherryblossom77, it's like the changing of the season, which pretty much means that it's dying like I said in the original post. Maybe if you harvest it right as they're turning yellow, it does something to the effects. Yet another scratching my chin face moment :-? I think we're on to something here...

I guess I would compare it to green malay, similar feeling and it lasts forever, 7 hours or longer.
