In this article, we will go over the different kratom strains and how they work. Before we dive into the different types of kratom strains, let’s quickly go over the roots of Kratom.
Where Does Kratom Come From?
Kratom, also called Mitragyna speciosa is a plant found in Southeast Asia.
The plant has been around for centuries and is mainly used to help treat various conditions. It was traditionally used to increase energy and productivity among farmers in Asia.
The Kratom leaves were either dried and eaten or made into a tea and consumed by the farmers. By doing so, they felt pain relief and were able to continue working under poor circumstances. In Thailand and Malaysia, Kratom is also used to help with drug withdrawal.
Nowadays, the use of Kratom has gotten extremely popular, mainly for self-medication. It’s considered a mood enhancer and nootropic because of the strong effects it has.
Most people use Kratom as a natural alternative to opioids. For them, it’s a way to help manage chronic pain. You’ll also find people that use Kratom to help combat Anxiety and Depression. Of course, there are also recreational users that take Kratom to help boost energy levels, brain stimulation and to feel good.
There are different strains of Kratom, each of them has their own unique set of benefits and effects. The different kratom strains are:
You’ll also find some vendors that sell a Gold strain. It’s pretty much a mix of white and green. A good example is the Gold Bali Kratom.
Kratom Strains And Effects
Each Kratom strain has a different type of effect.
For a new user, it can be quite overwhelming to pick a strain to try out, mainly because there are a few to pick from. You will also find that the quality of each Kratom batch might be different.
This is due to the fact that vendors are purchasing it from different Kratom farms. Also, the drying process is really important when it comes to the strength and effects of Kratom. Always make sure to purchase your Kratom from reputable sources.
You also have a lot of different Kratom types, like Maeng Da, Borneo, Bali, Indo, etc. The difference in these is which region they come from, the drying process, and mixing of the Kratom. It’s sometimes really hard to find your way through all the different kratom strains. My advice is to start with a color you like and just try different types, like the red Bali kratom.
Let’s go over the different kratom strains and the effects they have. This will help you understand which kratom strain is the best for you. In case you aren’t sure how to take kratom, make sure to do your research.
White Kratom Strain
The White kratom strain can be described with one word, focus. A white strain will help you clear your mind and give you the ability to fully focus on a task. It’s considered to be a great nootropic as it will boost cognition
Besides a great focus, a white strain can also be a good source of energy. I like to take White Borneo Kratom when I have to work behind the computer, it helps me focus and allows me to put the work in.
Red Kratom Strain
Personally, I am a big fan of the red strain, preferably Red Bali Kratom. It helps me relax like no other strain of Kratom does. The red strain seems to be one of the most popular strains available. I have heard a lot of great user experiences with the red strain.
This type will help you relax after a long exhausting day. It’s known to help put your mind at ease during stressful periods. Some type’s of Red kratom will also give you a euphoric effect which is hard to describe. You can compare the effects of Red strain to those of CBD oil.
Green Kratom Strain
The green strain is a great source of energy. It’s also known to have a positive effect on the mood. What I like about the green strain is that it’s super effective. After about 15 to 20 minutes I get an insane energy rush which lasts for several hours. The renewed strength it gives me is absolutely amazing and I highly suggest everybody try it out.
Because it’s so potent, you’ll usually feel the effects within no time. It’s also said that the green strain is great for pain relief.

In my opinion, you should give all the kratom strains a try.

My Personal Experience with the different Kratom Strains
I have used all the 3 basic Kratom Strains (red, white, green), and my favorites by far are the White and Red one.
The white one I use when I need to focus and get some work done. My dosage is 2-2,5 grams per serving.
The Red Kratom I use when I want to relax or get a good night of sleep.
