A Brief History of Kratom
Mitragyna Speciosa is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family native to southeast Asia. It is indigenous to Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Papua, where it has been used in traditional medicines since at least the nineteenth century.
Kratom offers long-lasting pain relief similar to the effects of opium, without the associated risks for addiction and dependence. As such, cultures with native Mitragyna Speciosa were among the first to use it as an alternative for the drug.
In Thailand, field workers and farmers would commonly use Kratom when they worked in the fields. By chewing on the plant while they worked, they believed it provided enough energy-boosting and pain-relieving effects to help them work through all-day shifts with relative ease.
Types of Kratom
Kratom types are generally divided into three different colors. Red-Vein, White-Vein or Green-Vein. This division is dependent on the color of the stem and vein of the leave. If you look closely at a kratom leaf you will see that the stem and vein have a certain color. This color determines the effect the kratom leaf will have on mind and body. Different color means a different effect and a different chemical composition.
The stem and vein will be removed during the grinding process. Therefore It is only the leaf which is supposed to be taken, without the stem and vein.
The different Kratom strains thrive at their best in different conditions and contain various alkaloids which each produce their own effects. Red Vein Kratom strains are suitable for certain purposes, while Green and White Kratom strains are more appropriate at other times.
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 the white veins are most stimulating and euphoric of all kratom strains. White Kratom is increasingly taken instead of coffee (caffeine) for alertness, concentration and cheerfulness. Many have come to take White Kratom for increased concentration, motivation and stamina during long working days.
For those who experience gloomy periods or at times feel very exhausted experience the best results when using this strain of kratom. Advisable is to not take this too late in the day as this can lead to restless sleep. It is common practice to mix white vein powder with red vein strains in order to achieve a more balanced boost in energy.
Bali / Red Vein Kratom originates in Indonesia. It’s reddish in color and believed to provide effective pain relief. Users say it’s the most “opioid-like” of all the kratom strains. It may help relieve pain-related conditions, such as depression or chronic pain.

In addition, Red Kratom is suitable as a sleep aid for people with insomnia. Physically, the Red Vein is known to relax the body and relieve pain. It relaxes the muscles and can be used as a supplement or replacement of pharmaceutical painkillers. The strongest red kratom extracts are used to prevent withdrawal symptoms of opiate addicts.
Green Vein Kratom can best be described as somewhere in between the red and white kratom strains. It is a mild energy booster that can brighten one up.
People who have experimented with it report that it helps them to enhance alertness and focus. The Green Vein strains are more subtle than the red or white veins. In general, they can be useful in treatment of pain and other discomforts, precisely because the green veins do not lead to drowsiness, which is often caused by other analgesic supplements.
