I've seen vendors everywhere talking about colors for kratom. What do those colors mean?

We use maeng da, so...

Yellow, green, white, gold, premium, red... what does it all mean?

It’s vein color upon drying and on the leaves. Sometimes. I’m short, red is for pain, green is for pain and mood, white is for energy.

There’s LOTS OF WIGGLE ROOM in there and if you check out the dates, but accurate stuff in the BLOGS section, there are explanations there.

More people will come share their opinions.

We all want to know what to expect from the leaf. I took a new white Borneo yesterday and expected to zoom zoom through my day. Instead, I found out I don’t need any more ambien.

Some consider the colors as speeds. Red is slow, green is medium and white is fast.

Subjective but true.

Are you looking at something you ALREADY HAVE, or are you shopping? Different answers apply to those different aspects of use.

I’m not trying to confuse you further! I’m sorry. I’ve had a fever today. Other folks will come explain and most vendors provide a summary of the color schemes on their website. I’ll see if I can find one to better assist you.

I still recommend the BLOGS section minus the state by state legality updates that are now obsolete. Skip over those.

I’ll see if I can get you a color chart. But remember that everyone is unique and it’s only a guide for SOME PEOPLE and sampling MUST BE DONE to know what a color does FOR YOU. Same with a brother or sister. They will not necessarily get energy from a kratom leaf color you DO get energy from.

I’ll be back with a chart.

Here’s a chart to get you started on the basics for most people but it’s subjective and varies a lot:

Different Colors of Kratom

Kratom comes in three primary colors; Red-veined Kratom, Green-veined Kratom, and White veined Kratom. These colors come from the central vein color present in the Kratom leaves.

1) Red Veined Kratom Leaf

This type of Kratom has both red-colored stem and veins. It is one of the most popular strains of Kratom as it is known to be very potent.

In the beginning, I started with the Red strain of Kratom, and to my surprise, I had my anxiety symptoms relieved to a great extent. I had these frequent attacks of panic followed by palpitations and shortness of breath. I would take the prescribed medications, but I had to suffer from a range of side effects.

So, after a friend of mine told me about the beneficial impact of Kratom, I surfed about it on the internet. I came across a reliable vendor and purchased my first bottle of Red Vein Kratom.

I started taking a low dose of the strain, and I felt the pleasant effects. My nerves got calm, and my mind was devoid of any worries. I was no more aware of my palpitations. I felt at peace, and very light. My mood improved considerably, and I felt like talking to people, though I am the very typical form of an introvert.

Gradually, using this strain, I felt my bodily cramps also diminishes. After years, I felt normal again, I felt like enjoying every moment of my life. I slept better than ever, and I no more needed the prescription drugs that gave me too many side effects.

2) White Veined Kratom Leaf

After taking Red Vein Kratom, I developed an interest in the other strains of Kratom. I was curious about the effects of White Vein Kratom.

According to various blog sources, I read that White Vein is a stimulant strain and has a positive effect on the mood. During my exams, I ordered a bottle of White vein Kratom capsules. Before studying, daily I would take a capsule of this strain. I noticed that I was more alert and had a larger attention span.

Previously, I could only stay focused for as long as half hour, but now it improved to 45-55 minutes. I had more stamina to sit for my exams preparation without being drained or distracted. I was more optimistic, and the daily dose of energy helped to study well for my exams.

The White vein Kratom, when mixed with the red vein, gives a smooth effect that lasts longer. I did a lot of experimentation, and only then I was able to figure out the individual properties of the various strains.

3) Green Vein Kratom Leaf

I found this strain was more balanced and produced mild effects. It was in between the extremes of the Red vein and white vein. So, on days when I prefer to go out for a stroll or meet up with old friends, I take this strain to feel mildly pleasant. The subtle effects of this strain are very beneficial when you want to have a day out from the rigorous routine.



Why are there Multiple Colors of Kratom?

Initially, when I was surfing on the internet, I got baffled about the multiple colors of Kratom. After buying the different color strains and experimenting with them, that the colors do matter. The various colors of Kratom have different properties. The variation in colors is due to the central vein, and stem color of Kratom leaves.

Some leaves have red stem and vein, while others can have white or green ones. Each color has a different chemical composition and different concentrations of alkaloids.

When Kratom leaves are processed, the color of Kratom may change too. We see the yellow color Kratom in the market which is the processed form of Kratom leaves.

Which Kratom Leaf Color to Choose?

Choosing Kratom color is based on experimentation. It is a trial and error method. You have to see which one suits you and which strain produces the desired effects for you. The blogs may say that White strain is stimulating, yes, it is, but maybe that is not the type of stimulation you are looking for.

So, you have to see what your needs are and which strain suffices your needs. The blogs do help one to narrow down the list of options and to choose from very few.

Sometimes, the color isn’t anymore in consideration, especially when you are taking Kratom capsules. You must study the properties of each color of Kratom and then choose it.

Final Words

The vendors out there sell Kratom with many names and you can see an array of Kratom types and products on their websites, but keep in mind there are only three essential colors of Kratom.

The rest of the colors are achieved due to the mixing of these three important colors or strains. The processing of Kratom can also give various colors. Whichever strain you use, ensure that you get it from a reliable vendor. Initially, go with samples only. See if it works for you.

Thanks, Laurie!

I didn't want to mention where we are getting it right now to not break rules. I think it's an approved vendor, someone suggested it here.

Right now we have white maeng da and red maeng da. The white we got from that vendor and it works pretty well, but we wanna know if there's anything more potent.

Thank you so much for respecting the guidelines. It’s really appreciated (I suspected that may be the case. There ARE some absolutely amazing vendors that don’t participate here, it’s cool)! By potent, can you elaborate? White vein is for “Starbucks-like-but-smoother” energy enhance and not that great for pain, and more potency usually adds MORE Zing. If you take more white. And over a period of time. Stacking like every hour or two adding another couple grams. But if you wish for stronger pain relief with the white for energy, add some green vein after an hour, and etc.

Does that make sense? Please be honest lol

yeah it makes sense!

By potent I mean it works. She can feel the effects. Sometimes she feels nothing from some vendors. We really only want it for pain managment, though a little mood boost is fine too

We usually use red at night because it makes her sleepy, even though it's the best at pain it seems. Is there something better for pain that won't put her to bed besides white?

Sounds like she’s not quite getting the dosing high enough. But actually, pain relief IS subtle. Try one night without the red and I guarantee there’s a difference. It’s not always a “pleasant sensation”, but when it is, those are lucky times. I’ve never met anyone who can duplicate that effect routinely without dabbling in extracts and heading into a tolerance/addiction problem you don’t want.

That said, have her try mixing some white with some red for both. So long as the leaf total use is about the same dose size. I have some very good success doing that. However, it’s not reliable enough to EXPECT the great results every day or even once a week.

Give blending a try, OR, some vendors do some very nice blending such as this. And their skills are better at getting the ratios correct for the best possible results, more reliably.

I cannot find a way to guarantee I’ll feel well for an upcoming dinner party, tho. Even the best blend will behave differently in my metabolism or my pain won’t be as responsive or I ate too much before dosing, etc..

The pre-made blends are very nice. They usually have goofy names and then a description of which colors are used.

Be sure to mention what you’re looking for in samples when you order, too. A comment like, “we would like to try your white/red blend” or something in the comments will usually help them know what might work for you. They can put it in your order so y’all can give it a try when you’re restocking your red anyway, for example.

The vendor cannot suggest which vein for pain or give medical advice, so try to use the colors in your words to help them avoid the medical advice issue. Vendors want to be of help to you so you’ll shop with them again.

I hope that gives you some ideas to chew on.

Feel free to wait for a second and third opinion. I think you’ll get more suggestions but we’ve all got this flu bug...not as many folks up to e-chatting tonight. I’m hitting the rack now also.

Thanks for the great question! Your post will help other people who are wondering these same things.

Hi neceros! Just my two cents based on my experience. I use Bali for chronic pain and it helps me to have a good sleep at night. To get the pain tlrelief I usually need to take around 11-12 grams at once. Some think that's high but that's what gives me the relief I need. Definitely play around with your amounts as everyone body is different. Good luck!

I also add Bali to my mixes, green Bali ,what I’m using at the moment is not an approved vendor so I won’t mention their name , but I’ve found a good batch of green Bali from any vendor helps with pain tremendously. Also some green Malay has given me good relief , I usually do my own blends these days to cover more territory so to speak, reds and greens really help me, also some whites ( not always ) help add to pain relief for me ... Bali no matter the color seems to impart these qualities.
