Kratom is fast rising to become the number one herb thanks to its many benefits and availability. It has been reported to help combat depression, improve mood and concentration, and boost mood.
It also has some medicinal benefits and helps with increased energy levels. However, while many are aware of its numerous benefits, not many know that the Kratom comes in different strains that have different compositions, effects, and dosage.
These strains are red, green, and white, and here is all you need to know about the three major Kratom strains.
THE RED KRATOM STRAIN
This strain gets its name from its characteristic red veins and stem and is popularly known as the Red Vein Kratom.
It is more popular than the other two strains and is noted to be best-selling Kratom in the market with its site of production in Southeast Asia.
The red strain has four major types: Red Thai, Red Bali, Red Indo, and Red Vein Maeng Da. Some of the effects this strain include, calmness, pain relief, boost mental health, improves focus, and enhances cognitive function. It is noted to be perfect for people battling alcohol or drug addiction.
Due to its high alkaloid percentage, a dosage of 2-3 grams and nothing more is recommended for beginners. If your body builds a tolerance to it, then it can be doubled over time.
THE WHITE KRATOM STRAIN
Known for its ecstatic effects, the white kratom strain is a mood enhancer and stimulant that causes a significant increase in energy levels when taken.
Although it is also grown in South Asia, it has a more energizing effect than the red strain. The three major types of white strain are White vein Kali, White Vein Indo, and White Vein Thai.
Some of the effects of this strain on the body include stamina boost, sharp focus, nootropic-like effects, and mood enhancement.
As a result of its potent nature, a dosage of 1-2 grams is recommended for beginners to understand what effects it might have. Afterward, it can be increased to 3 grams.
THE GREEN KRATOM STRAIN
Unlike the two strains mentioned above, this one has a mild effect on its users. Nevertheless, it is useful in enhancing focus and alertness. It produces desired outcomes within a short period as users noted that after 15-20 minutes of consumption, they experience an energy rush that lasts for a long time. It is majorly used for pain relief purposes.
As expected, the green Kratom strain has four major types which are Green Malay, Green Bali, Green Indo, Green Maeng Da, and Green Borneo. Each of these different types has different effects and are used for various purposes.
While it has mild effects, unlike the others, its impacts remain the same and include increased physical relaxation, energy boost, sharper focus, and enhanced mood.
It can also be mixed with the red and green strain and used to buffer the excessive anesthesia and overstimulation, respectively. For this strain, there is no particular recommended dosage. However, factors like mental health, age, size, and quality of Kratom are essential in determining how much to use.
