Kratom trees and the products made from their leaves have been used holistically for hundreds of years. Originally from the hot, humid areas of Southeast Asia like Thailand, Myanmar, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea, Kratom is a member of the coffee plant family.
Each strain of Kratom is designated by color, and you can buy either green, red, or white vein Kratom. Traditionally, users chew the leaves or pound the leaves into powder to be blended into food, tea, or beverages, or to be ingested on its own.
If you are just getting started on your Kratom journey, it may be challenging to sift through all the information to get to the parts pertinent to your lifestyle. Here are some guidelines about Kratom in general and, more specifically, about the benefits of green vein Kratom.
History of Kratom
Communities in Southeast Asia have been using Kratom for centuries as a natural and holistic way to manage stresses in their daily lives and enhance their motivation and well-being. Kratom users will either chew the leaves on their own or blend them with something else to mask the leaves’ strong, herbal taste.
There are three different strains of Kratom – green vein, red vein, and white vein. There is even a yellow vein Kratom, which is a blended variety. Most of these strains (around 75 to 85%) come from the red vein variety, but the unique drying techniques change the color and alkaloid makeup of each distinct strain.
Experienced Kratom enthusiasts usually have a favorite as each independent Kratom strain has different benefits, due to the makeup of their alkaloid content.
Alkaloids – naturally occurring compounds – are Kratom’s powerhouse ingredients. In the early 1900s, researchers identified the two primary alkaloids that make Kratom trees so special. These are mitragynine and 7-hydroxy mitragynine.
Each distinctive strain has its own particular combination of alkaloids. For example, red vein Kratom has around 25 alkaloids in its chemical makeup, making it one of the more powerful strains of Kratom.
To get the distinctive colors and alkaloid makeups of the different strains, farmers rely mainly on the process of drying Kratom leaves.
There are white and green vein Kratom leaves growing naturally, but they are few and far between and hard to find. A small portion of red, green, or white vein Kratom strains are named because of the environment in which they’re grown and the chemical content of the soil.
Some of the variables manipulated in the drying process are exposure to UV light and fermentation. Green Kratom, for example, is only minimally subjected to outdoor sunlight, and mostly kept indoors to create its brilliant green shades.
White vein Kratom is created by drying it inside and then moving it outside into the sunlight for the specific color and chemical makeup. Red vein Kratom’s deep red hue can be darkened with extended periods in the sunlight and also from fermentation time in bags.
Sealing the Kratom leaves in bags, which is the chosen fermentation process, changes it from one color to another, and shifts its alkaloid makeup at the same time.
Green Vein Kratom Varieties
Green Kratom is especially beneficial for its measured benefits and balanced promotion of your well-being. This particular strain of Kratom has a milder outcome than the other strains, but still lends consumers a sense of enhanced motivation and optimism.
Green Bali Kratom is one of the purest strains of green vein Kratom available.
Grown in the Bunut region of Brunei in Southeast Asia, the Kratom leaves for this mixture are not picked until they have achieved the perfect balance of alkaloids and leaf quality.
Perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up, and similar in benefits to Green Maeng Da, Green Bali is one of the smoothest and most rewarding green vein Kratom varieties Kats Botanicals offers.
Green Brunei is a unique mixture of 80% green vein Kratom and 20% white vein Kratom. The alkaloid mixture found in both strains creates a strong, fresh experience in your morning or afternoon tea.
Green Brunei promotes a boost in optimism and helps users prepare to take on the difficult and often stressful tasks of their day. It is a bit stronger than Green Maeng Da, so experienced users may want to start slowly when they incorporate this strain into their daily routine.

Harvested in Nibung in the Bengkulu region of Indonesia, Green Malay is 100% pure green vein Kratom. The stems of the leaves are removed before the leaves are dried for one day. This helps maintain the green hue of the leaves, while also preserving the optimum alkaloid content.
Green Malay is extremely smooth and easy to incorporate into your daily wellness regimen. It promotes motivation for long periods of time, but it is stronger than other strains of green vein kratom. Beginners and experienced users should start slow at first.
Harvested from the Sunda Island archipelago in Indonesia, this green vein Kratom is 100% pure and sweeter than other Kratom varieties. For many users looking to switch up their Kratom routine, Green Sunda is the perfect choice for morning and afternoon pick-me-ups.
Green Sunda promotes a boost to your well-being, and lasts for many hours on those very busy days. For experienced users, less is actually more with this strain, which may be a welcome change.
Mixed with honey or agave syrup, Kratom tea can be a powerful addition to your morning or evening regimen.
To sidestep the bitter taste of Kratom, you can also mix green vein Kratom powder with citrus smoothies, where the fruitiness does a great job of masking the strong taste. You can also add it to applesauce, the benefit here being the myriad of other ingredients you can add to it, like cinnamon or turmeric.
You can blend your green Kratom with overnight oats with the addition of dried berries, maple syrup, or trail mix to disguise the taste from the Kratom leaves.
Making your own capsules of green vein Kratom powder has become increasingly popular over the past few years. The benefits of this ingestion method include its discreetness, accuracy, and that it has little to no taste. It is also useful for traveling or carrying in your purse or lunch bag to work.
