Understanding the Different Kratom Types


For new users of kratom, the number of kratom strains can be overpowering. But how can you understand how each of these types works? And how are they different? As you probably know, the effects of kratom are due to its alkaloids. The leaves of kratom contain around 40 alkaloids (the main ones being mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine) that act on your opioid receptors. By this action, kratom alkaloids trigger a series of effects that includes:

  • Pain relief
  • Stimulation
  • Relaxation
  • Euphoria

However, although all kratom leaves come from the same tree species (Mitragyna speciosa), they can have a different set of alkaloids. Depending on environmental factors, the maturity of the leaf or the drying techniques, the number of alkaloids that each leaf contains may vary. Thus, we can talk about three different kratom types depending on the color of the leaf stem and vein: red kratom, white kratom, and green kratom. But there are also sub-varieties (strains) depending on where that kratom grows or other factors. Malay kratom is one of those strains. But before exploring its properties, let us take a look at the three main kratom types.

Red Kratom


Red kratom strains are arguably the most popular kratom varieties. Users praise this kratom type because of its analgesic and calming effects. Red strains are often more potent than its green and white counterparts, especially in terms of pain relief and sedation. However, because of their potency, red kratom strains may also cause side effects more easily. That is why it is very important to be very cautious with the dosage when ingesting red kratom.


White Kratom


Let us move to the other side of the spectrum. While red kratom is praised for its relaxing effects, white strains are generally the most stimulating varieties. That is why many kratom varieties can be a great substitute for coffee. Furthermore, despite its energizing effects, white kratom will not make you jittery. But white strains also have euphoric and uplifting effects. Hence, many people coping with depression take white kratom strains to manage their symptoms. Finally, white kratom strains also have pain-relieving effects.


Green Kratom


Green kratom is a jack-of-all-trades in the kratom world. While they are usually milder than the red or white strains, green kratom varieties often comprise a wider range of effects. Thus, green kratom is a great choice for people looking for a balanced strain or new users. Yet, green vein strains are still a favorite in the kratom community, thanks to its balance of effects. Green strains can provide you with a mild energy boost, help you relieve pain or enhance your mood.

Of course, Malaysian kratom varieties also have uplifting and mildly euphoric effects. Thus, this kratom variety may also help you achieve a better mood or fight the symptoms of depression.


The Three Malay Kratom Types


While green Malay kratom is the most popular Malaysian strain, you can also find red and white vein Malay kratom. Below, we will explore the characteristics of each of them.

  • Green Malay kratom: This green strain is not only the most popular Malaysian variety but also one of the most popular green kratom strains. Green Malay (or super green Malay) is a natural mood booster that also has potent analgesic effects. It is also a great choice for kratom newbies.
  • White Malay kratom: While white vein Malay may not be the best choice for pain relief, it remains as one of the best strains to improve focus and increase energy. However, white Malaysian kratom is not very easy to find.
  • Red Malay kratom: This red strain is one of the best kratom varieties when it comes to pain relief. And unlike green and white Malay strains, red vein Malay does have sedative effects at high doses (even if not as potent as those of other red strains). It may also be helpful to cope with anxiety. Nevertheless, just like white Malay, red vein Malay is not that common.

In conclusion, we can say that Malay kratom strains can be a great choice for most kratom users. Whether you are looking for a kratom type to cope with pain, lack of energy or depression, Malaysian kratom will always be an excellent choice.
