Strains & Variety Of Kratom Info:

There are many different Types of Kratom advertised on the internet. These include leaves, enhanced leaves, extracts, powders, resins, tinctures and so forth. Below we have a few descriptions for your convenience.

Kratom Resin: This is a concentrated form of Kratom which is created by condensing the leaf down through a cooking method and extracting the alkaloids to produce a small, tar like mass which is much stronger than the leaf itself.

Kratom Powder: Kratom powder is generally stronger than crushed leaves because the stem and veins of the leaf are often removed, leaving the parts of the leaf which contain the highest amount of the active alkaloids.

Stem and Vein: The Stem and Vein is generally removed during the grinding of the leaf to produce powder, but still contains active alkaloids, although only approximately 25% of what the other leaf material contains.

Kratom Extract: This generally comes in a powder form and is a concentrated form the Kratom, thus providing a stronger or enhanced effect.

Kratom Tincture: The extracted alkaloids or Concentrated Kratom Powder is soluble in alcohol which allows for an alternative delivery system. Tincture droplets are delivered sublingual and have a strong effect.

Enhanced Kratom: Enhanced Kratom is often as simple as an extract being added to a regular strength powder. There are also some strains of Kratom that are overall stronger than others and these are sometimes referred to as enhanced.

Crushed Leaf Kratom: This is basically what the title implies. Crushed leaf Kratom contains all of the leaf material, stem and veins and is often used as a tea for the delivery system.

Kratom Capsules: This is simply Powdered Kratom which is packed into an ingestible capsule (Kratom Capsules) for a more convenient delivery method, thus the name.


Indonesia: Also known as Indo and comes in White, Green and Red Vein.

Sumatra (a region in Indonesia)
Riau (a region in Indonesia)
Kalimantan (a region in Indonesia)
Borneo (a region in Indonesia)

Bali (a combination of Sumatra and Borneo. Supposedly Bali was named this because it was in Bali where the combination was first created.)

Thailand KratomThailand: Also known as Thai and comes in Red and Green Vein.
Maeng Da (not a region, but an enhanced version of Thai)

Malaysia: Also known as Malay and comes in White, Red and Green Vein.

For an example, when you hear the term, “White Vein Sumatra”, you'll now know that this is referring to a white veined Kratom leaf found in the Sumatra region of Western Indonesia and simply put, “White Vein Indo”.

These names can sometimes be justified due to the different environments in which the trees are grown. Some regions have different soil compositions which can clearly have an effect on the alkaloids found in the leaf.
