KRATOM STRAINS INFORMATION
Kratom is marketed under several different names. Following is a brief description about how Kratom strains get their names and their unique effects.
Kratom strains are made up of 3 different leaves from Mitragyna Speciosa – they are green vein, red vein and white vein. The names of each of the Kratom strains originate from regions in Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. Examples include Bali Red Vein and Green Malay.
Strains referred to as “Indo” Kratom are harvested in Indonesia and include Green Vein Kratom, Red Vein Kratom and White Vein Kratom. Kratom strains are also named by specific the Indonesia regions they were harvested from. Examples of regions include Borneo, Bali and Indo, hence names like “Red Bali”.
Specific strains that originally hailed from Thailand include Red Thai Kratom, the popular Maeng Da, and Thai Kratom, from Red vein, Green Vein and White Vein leaves. Because Mitragyna Speciosa trees were prohibited in Thailand (since 1943), Thai strains today grown in other countries that include Indonesia and Malaysia.
Malaysia produces Red, Green and White Kratom, including everyone’s favorite – Green Malay.
