Green vein kratom is a variety of the Mitragyna speciosa tree native to Southeast Asia. Along with red and white vein, it makes up the three main types of kratom.
What Is Green Vein Kratom
Green vein kratom refers to the Mitragyna variety with green veins and stems. They are relatively the same color as the leaf matter.
Green Vein Kratom Properties
The properties of the different strains of kratom depend on its alkaloids. Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine are the two primary alkaloids in kratom. They are responsible for energizing and soothing properties respectively.
Mitragynine is the most abundant one in all types and 7-hydroxymitragynine comes in much lower amounts. However the latter is exponentially more potent. Therefore, its concentration determines whether a strain is more energizing or soothing.
Red strains have a high concentration of 7-hydroxymitragynine making them responsible for creating a soothing atmosphere. White strains, on the contrary, create an energizing atmosphere due to low levels of 7-hydroxymitragynine.
Green strains have a level of 7-hydroxymitragynine that’s in between those of the red and white strains. Thus, the properties that the green vein kratom strains offer are moderate. You can expect a balanced blend of properties characteristic to the reds and whites – moderately energizing and moderately soothing.
This makes greens suitable day-time strains. They are energizing enough to set an atmosphere in which you can remain alert and focused, yet not too energizing.
Thus, greens can be a great place to start for those who are new to kratom.
Popular Green Strains
Just like the other types, green vein kratom breaks down in different strains. With a few exceptions, these will depend on where each specific strain is from.
To thrive, kratom needs sunlight, humidity, and nitrogen-rich soil. Since the quality and concentration of those varies in different areas of Southeast Asia, each green vein kratom strain develops a slightly different alkaloid profile that caters to slightly different needs.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the favorite strains of our kratom community.
Green Maeng Da
Green Maeng Da kratom is a top-performing strain not only in our inventory but in the kratom world in general.
Native to Thailand, this strain was a product of grafting. Farmers combined Thai kratom with an Indo kratom variety in hopes to produce a more potent type that’s more resistant to environmental circumstances.
Its name, however, does not refer to a geographic location. Instead, it means “Pimp grade” in conversational Thai. That was meant to accentuate the potency and the superior quality of this strain.
From the popularity of Green Vein Maeng Da, you can see that it was an imminent success.
Green Horn Kratom
Curiously, our second most popular strain also does not take its name after the place of its origin. Green Horn kratom is green vein kratom strain that’s named after the shape of its leaves.
Green Horn kratom leaves have spikes that resemble horns. These fully mature leaves with high alkaloid content that experienced kratom farmers and harvesters specifically seek out.
Green Horn Kratom is a rare strain which is why it’s important to buy it from a trustworthy vendor. Learn why here.
Green Kali Kratom
Green Kali is a strain that comes from the Kalimantan region of Borneo Island. It can provide an overall balanced kratom experienced as its alkaloid profile can create an atmosphere that’s moderately stimulating, soothing, relaxing, and mood-boosting. Green Kali Kratom also provides properties that last slightly longer than other strains.
Green Malay Kratom
Native to Malaysia, most Green Malay Kratom currently comes from Indonesia. Green Malay is a long-lasting balanced strain which is gaining popularity elsewhere in the world. It provides a balanced set of properties, yet excels in creating a soothing and mood-boosting atmosphere.
Plantation Maeng Da Kratom
In plantations, kratom farmers are able to control different factors that can bring out the qualities in the Thai kratom. Thus, it naturally results in more potent kratom properties that make this strain a superior Maeng Da variety.
