Stimulating Strains
Stimulating strains are some of the most desirable strains for those with fatigue or depression, as well as for those who need to sustain energy and focus for long periods of time

Thai Kratom
Thai Kratom is well-known for its powerful energetic effects. The unique alkaloid profile of Thai Kratom often provokes different reactions between different users, and may not be for everyone. However, this strain has a very dedicated following, unlike anything we have seen with other varieties of Kratom.

The pain-killing effects of Thai are variable; typically, red vein Thai (commonly called RVT) is the most effective in regards to analgesia, whereas white and green vein Thai strains, while stimulating and a great Kratom strain for depression, are lacking in this area.

Stimulation: 8 to 9.5 / 10
Pain Relief: 4 – 8 / 10
Mood: 6 – 9 / 10


Maeng Da Kratom
MD has been widely renowned as one of the most potent strains of Kratom, and for good reason — it can provide both high levels of pain relief and stimulation. This strain has been ideal for those with pain who don’t want to sacrifice energy levels, as well as those who are looking for a mood-boost.

Stimulation: 7 – 8.5 / 10
Pain Relief – 7.5 – 10 / 10
Mood: 7.5 – 10 / 10


Sedating Strains
As a whole, sedating strains are lacking in the more stimulating alkaloids, primarily mitragynine, contained in the Thai/Maeng Da strains of Kratom; however, they pack a very large punch as far as pain relief is concerned due to their large concentrations of 7-hydroxymitragynine. These strains have been traditionally used for chronic pain, opiate withdrawal relief and mood-lifting.


Borneo Kratom
A true borneo strain, especially a red vein borneo, is one of the most unique and strongest strains of Kratom you will find in nature; they are highly sedating, great for pain relief, and unparalleled for anxiety/stress relief. Borneo strains also have a extremely low side-effect factor in comparison to other strains of its type. Once experienced, you can quickly distinguish a true borneo by its unique smell.

Stimulation: 1 – 2/10
Pain Relief: 8-10 / 10
Mood: 8 – 10 / 10


Bali Kratom
Bali Kratom is one of the most economical strains due to large leaves and quick growth. Proper dosage for some Bali strains can be difficult, as they are known for their low “wobble” threshold. Though many have found one can reverse this negative by mixing it with another strain.

Stimulation: 2-4 / 10
Pain Relief: 7 – 9.5 / 10
Mood: 7 – 9.5 / 10


Indo Kratom
Indo strains are very well-rounded for pain and have less side-effects than comparable Balinese strains, and can be further sub-categorized as strains such as Riau and Sumatra, even Borneo is a type of indo. Many have reported delayed effects from many types of Indo Green, which is likely due to the leaves tough cell-walls, very similar to Green Malaysian strains.
While the effects are similar to Borneo Kratom strains on paper, experienced users will notice the unique differences that make this strain so unique.

Stimulation: 2-3 / 10
Pain Relief: 8 – 10 / 10
Mood: 8 – 10 / 10


Moderate Strains
Many prefer a moderate strain as their daily go-to, due to its potent, yet smooth, effects. Currently, the most popular moderate strain is Green Malaysian; however, other sub-strains, vein types and breeding can make an overall sedating or stimulating strain moderate.


Green Malaysian
Green Malaysian has long been known as one of the longest-lasting strains due to leaf cell-wall density.
Many remark on this strain’s unique nootropic effects, which, despite heavy stimulation, can increase focus and patience for quite long periods of time. Interestingly, these effects are typically only noticed in retrospect due to its smooth character of effects.

Stimulation: 4-6 / 10
Pain Relief: 6 – 8 / 10
Mood: 7 – 8.5 / 10


Vein Types:
Something unique to this plant, in comparison to many other medicinal plants, is the distinct differences of vein color; which has corresponding effects and growth conditions. While each vein color tends to have a unique set of effects that can provide clues to the effects that the strain has.
However, there are some minor exceptions, especially when dealing with strains with a less balanced alkaloid profile such as Thai, or Borneo strains which on the whole provide a Kratom experience that is stimulating or sedating, respectively.


Red Vein Kratom
Red vein Kratom is one of the most popular due to its natural tendency toward higher levels of 7-hydroxymitragynine, which leads to impressive pain-killing effects, sedation, as well as anxiety and stress relief. Red veins also tends to be less at the mercy of individual brain chemistry; whereas white and green vein strains often effect people variably. This is one of the reasons red vein thai (RVT) is so popular among Kratom users –it combines both heavy levels of energy from it’s Thai influences, with the red vein painkilling effects leaving the strain stimulating but very well-rounded.

Pain Relief: 3/3
Energy: 1/3


White Vein Kratom
Despite the lower amount of 7-hydroxymitragynine found in white vein strains, this vein type should not be treated lightly. White vein Kratom has a very strong following, and can be highly effective for conditions such as depression and lack of focus/energy.
Of all the vein types, white vein shows the most potential as a nootropic (cognition enhancing) substance. Many have found that using this vein type first thing in the morning to be a great substitute for coffee due to it’s “clean” effects on alertness and focus. which unlick coffee you wont crash or get real tiered.

Pain Relief: 1/3
Energy: 3/3


Green Vein Kratom
For those who prefer neither the sedation of red veins, or the stimulation of white veins, green vein Kratom may be the best solution. Green vein strains are much more moderate in their effects than other the other vein varieties and can provide the best of both worlds, making them commonly used as a daily Kratom.
Green vein strains can also provide nootropic effects, and are generally less at the whim of personal brain chemistry than white vein strains tend to be.

Pain Relief: 2/3
Energy: 1.5/3
If anybody has any Questions about Kratom please private message me or make a Post & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can usually within 24 hours if not sooner. I'm usually on really late at night Between Midnight & 5am.
