Kratom Vein Colors

The Colors of Kratom
Kratom is generally divided into three different colors. Red-vein, Green-vein or White-vein. The colors are determined by the color of the central vein of the leaf & the stem. If you look closely at a kratom leaf you will see that the central vein, as well as the stem, have a certain color. Generally, this color helps to determine the effect the kratom leaf will have. Each color causes a different effect due to their own unique alkaloid profiles.
The colors of the different kratom strains thrive at their best in differing conditions and contain various alkaloids that come together to form their own unique alkaloid profile which produces their own unique effect.

Red Vein Kratom
Red Vein Kratom leaves have red colored central vein & stem. Red is the best selling and most widely available strain of kratom on the market. Red is sold more than the Green and White vein combined. The Red vein kratom plant grows abundantly in Southeast Asia and is slightly more persistent than other Mitragyna Speciosa trees. Some studies claim that the substances that give rise to the red color of the veins also ensure that the plant is less susceptible to external factors.
Red vein kratom from a trusted source is great for beginners because Reds are reported to be the most well-tolerated strains. Reds produce pleasant calming effects, pain relief & act as an anxiolytic as well as general peace of mind and a feeling of well-being and optimism. In addition, Red is suitable as a sleep aid for insomnia. Physically, Red is known to relax the body and relieve pain. It relaxes the muscles and can be used as a supplement or replacement for Rx painkillers. 
Within the Red vein kratoms, there are considerable variations in the effects and properties. As with the Greens & Whites, the effects of a Red depend on the dose but overall Reds are used to alleviate pain, as an anxiolytic & sleep.

Green Vein Kratom
Green Vein Kratom can best be described as 'middle of the road' or 'the moderator' because it is somewhere between Red veins & White veins. It is a mild energy booster with pain relief & mood enhancing.
People report that it helps them to enhance alertness and focus. Greens are more subtle than Reds or Whites. In general, they can be useful to alleviate pain and other discomforts, precisely because Greens do not lead to drowsiness, which is often caused by other analgesic supplements.
Greens can be mixed with Reds or Whites to create a more rounded flavor with a more sophisticated effect. When properly mixed it prevents the excessive relaxation of a Red and the overstimulation of a White.
Due to the balanced functioning Greens are often used for pain relief during the daytime as well as a mood uplift & social anxiety.

White Vein Kratom
White vein kratom is known as a stimulant and positive mood enhancer. The effect of each strain off course depends on numerous factors such as the quality of the product, lifestyle and tolerance level of the individual. However, the trend is that Whites are the most stimulating. White kratom is increasingly taken instead of coffee (caffeine) for alertness, concentration, and mood uplift. Some take white kratom for increased concentration, motivation and stamina during long working days.
For those who experience gloomy periods or at times feel exhausted experience the best results when using this strain of kratom. It is advisable not to use this too late in the day as it can lead to problems sleeping. It is common to mix some White with a Red (or even a Green) in order to achieve a more balanced boost in energy.

Red, Green or White kratom?
Which kind of kratom is most appropriate for you depends on your personal preferences and the situation you're in. With kratom, this can be quite complicated because the effects can vary. It depends on quality, location, climate, harvesting method etc. Not all Reds will have the same results and this also applies to the Greens and Whites.
The characteristics described can best be considered as general guidelines for each kratom color. A great way to determine which kratom strain is best for you is to order kratom sample packs. By sampling different colors as well as strains you can find out for yourself what color and strain is most suitable for your needs.

Other Colors?
Yes, you will see and hear of other colors but these colors are not determined by the color of the central vein & stem. I will leave these newer colors for someone else to contribute.

Any questions, thoughts, additional information? Please feel free to ask &/or post.

Sign and Share the American Kratom Association Petition to President Donald J. Trump: Appoint an FDA Commissioner Who Will Follow the Science on Kratom!

Please sign and share the Petition today requesting that President Donald J. Trump appoint a new FDA Commissioner who will commit to protect the public from dangerously adulterated kratom products, and who will follow the true science that has shown that pure kratom is being safely used by millions of American consumers.

Tell President Trump that the next FDA Commissioner should lift the unfair, unjustified, and overly burdensome regulation on imports of kratom that is restricting the freedom of consumers and is allowing bad actors to flood the market with unsafe and dangerous adulterated kratom products.

And share with President Trump your own experience on how kratom has helped you personally in maintaining your health and well-being.

As this is the start of hurricane season, we had some major winds run through the nursery last night. Huge storm north of us. One of my 12 ft trees went from 90 degrees to 45 degrees and kept bounching in between. But here is a larger tree getting nocked around.
