Green Malay kratom is a very popular kratom strain. Users often favor it for its long-lasting effects, ranging from euphoric and energizing to sedative and relaxing. Quite likely, this kratom variety is the most balanced kratom strain in terms of effects.
What Is Kratom?
Kratom is a tree in the coffee family native to Southeast Asia. It grows in areas like Thailand, Indonesia, Borneo or Malaysia. Kratom’s scientific name, mitragyna speciosa, comes from its most abundant alkaloid: mitragynine.
Kratom’s main alkaloids are mitragynine and 7-OHM. But it also has more than other 20 alkaloids. And not all of them have the same effects.
Thanks to its alkaloids, kratom is useful in many health issues. You can use kratom for:
- Opiate withdrawal
Kratom Strains and Varieties
There are three different kratom strains, depending on the color of the stem and vein of the leaf. You can find red kratom, white kratom and green kratom. Each strain has a different set of alkaloids. Hence, they will also produce different effects. White vein kratom is more stimulant and energizing. On the other hand, red kratom has more sedative effects. Green kratom is a kind of middle ground between the white and the red kratom. At low doses, it brings about stimulant and euphoric effects, while at high doses its effects are more sedative.
Also, kratom strains have different varieties, depending on their place of origin. For instance, you can find white Borneo or Thai red vein kratom. Since Southeast Asia is a very large area, each kratom region has its own climate and environmental conditions. Therefore, kratom varieties (or sub-types) will be different. Green Malay is a green kratom strain that grows in Malaysia.
Properties of Green Malay Kratom
This kratom variety is known for its long-lasting effects, which can last up to 8 hours. The reason for this is commonly attributed to the cell-wall density of the leaf. However, due to the lack of proper studies on kratom, it is hard to set the cell wall as the only (or main) reason for this property.
Also, Green Malay is a kratom type that you can “top off”. That is, you can add an extra small dose when the effects start to wane. Thus, the effects of green Malay will continue stable throughout the day. This is a great advantage of green Malay kratom, as most kratom varieties cannot be “topped off”. Because of this, green Malay is a favorite among kratom users.
Sometimes you will find kratom labeled as Super Green Malay. This is not a different variety, but Green Malay kratom blended with kratom extracts to obtain a more potent product (what is usually known as “enhanced kratom”). If you are using Super Green Malay, remember you will need smaller doses.
Effects of Green Malay Kratom
Regardless of the dose, green Malay kratom will provide you with an enjoyable euphoria. It also enhances memory and concentration.
At low doses, this green kratom variety is a great stimulant that will boost your energy up.
At high doses, it will provide you with mild sedative effects. While not so sedative as red kratom, green Malay still creates a very relaxing feeling. And it is also a good pain reliever, even if not so potent as red kratom types.
Green Malay Kratom for Energy
This is one of green Malay’s most popular effects. At low doses, green Malay will produce stimulating, energizing effects.
You will often hear comparisons between Super Green Malay and Maeng Da kratom. Maeng Da is regarded as the most potent kratom strain. Yes, Maeng Da kratom will provide you with a higher, more intense energy. However, the energizing effects of Green Malay kratom last much longer, even if they are milder. In fact, many users find Maeng Da kratom too stimulating. If you are one of these users, green Malay kratom is the right choice for you.
Green Malay Kratom for Focus and Memory
Kratom users praise green Malay for its properties in enhancing focus and memory. Others report a sense of mental clarity, more patience and even motivation.
You can expect to see green Malay’s nootropic effects at low to moderate doses, even if the tolerance level and threshold may vary among individuals.
Some users claim that they did not notice they were experiencing these effects until they had fully worn off. Probably, this has to do with the ability of this kratom string to bring about effects in a gradual, smooth manner.
Green Malay Kratom for Depression and Anxiety
If you are suffering from depression causing you a low mood, deep sadness or negative thoughts, low doses will suit you better. On the other hand, if you have anxiety, you will find green Malay more useful at moderate or even high doses.
In general, kratom users claim that a moderate dose of Green Malay kratom mitigates the symptoms of anxiety. However, those suffering from anxiety as part of their depression, usually prefer a higher dosage.
If you want to use Green Malay to cope with the symptoms of depression or anxiety, it is recommendable to try different doses. Thus, you will be able to find the ideal dosage for your particular symptoms.
It is generally the case that kratom’s properties as an antidepressant only last as you are taking it. Nonetheless, it still can be an effective natural treatment for some individuals.
Unfortunately, neither kratom nor any other substances (such as traditional antidepressants) can cure depression. So, it is recommendable you use kratom with additional therapies, such as psychotherapy.
Green Malay Kratom for Euphoria
Green Malay is a great pick if you are seeking euphoria at a low dosage. Also, the effects of Green Malay last much longer than those of other kratom strains.
Even if Green Malay produces a feeling of euphoria milder than other kratom types (like Maeng Da), you can take an extra dose when the effects begin to wane.
Green Malay for Immune System Boosting
Green Malay kratom is one of the few varieties that can help boost your immune system. That is probably because it is a kratom strain rich in alkaloids mitraphylline, isorhynchophylline, isopteropodine and isomitraphylline. Thanks to these alkaloids, this kratom strain is very effective in boosting your immune system. Hence, it will help you avoid illness or recover faster if you are sick.
If you want to take kratom for its immune boosting properties, it is better to take a moderate dosage daily during the illness and for several days after symptoms have disappeared.
Green Malay is an effective natural remedy for common cold and flu. And if you are suffering from immune deficiencies this kratom strain can help you stave off illness.
However, if you are suffering from an autoimmune disorder you must avoid Green Malay kratom. The reason is that in the case of an autoimmune disorder, the immune system kicks into overdrive, causing damage to the organs and body systems. Therefore, Green Malay could, in theory, worsen the symptoms.
Green Malay Kratom for Pain Relief
Green Malay is also an excellent pain reliever. Even if not so potent as other kratom varieties, Green Malay can help you alleviate the pain in an effective way.
Unlike other kratom varieties commonly used for pain relief, Green Malay does not have sedative effects. Instead, you will feel relaxed and get a nice feeling of well-being and euphoria.
If you want to use Green Malay kratom for relieving pain, you will need moderate to high doses.
So, as you can see, Green Malay is a very versatile kratom variety. If you are new to kratom, this variety is a good choice to start.
