Understanding The Kratom Strains
That beautiful kratom powder you’re taking right now, what strain of kratom did it come from? Do you know your kratom strains? Why do they do matter?
I’m sure it has came across your mind at some point, how many strains of kratom are there? I know I always think about it, as you likely know, kratom strains are different and pack a different kratom experience.
At first glance, it looks like there’s hundreds of different types of kratom. Seriously, have you seen all the different kratom names? I can’t remember 10 percent of them. I love all the names, it’s creatives. However, when you pull back the curtain, there’s only a handful of kratom strains.
In total, there’s only 3 strains: Red Vein, Green Vein and White Vein. That’s all of them.
Sure, it’s a little disappointing to learn I guess. However, there’s a reason why there’s so many kratom names. Kratom vendors use these names to know where their kratom is coming from, which farmer it comes from and even the different regions. It helps us keep track. If we didn’t have this system in place, it would be hectic to say the least.
A lot of kratom users want to know how their favorite kratom strain is made, or how they get white powder kratom, even yellow colors.
What You Need To Know About Kratom Vein Color
Now, there’s a wide range of comments surrounding how you get your kratom powder colors. Red vein is often said to be from a specific geographical location. Green vein is often said to be grown in the wild. White vein, it has a lot of suggestions, such as light, grown in water, ect. While they sound logical, it’s not how you get your specific kratom color.
The color of your kratom powder has nothing to do with its original origins.
Now, most kratom actually originates from red vein kratoms. That means your favorite green vein and white vein kratoms likely originate from a red vein.
The way kratom leaves are dried influences the color of your kratom powder. For example, drying kratom indoors versus outdoors has a big influence on the color you will get. There’s other factors too, such as the light source used to dry the kratom, some are dried not using any light source at all.
You may be asking, what about yellow kratom? What about yellow vein? Yellow kratom usually comes from a red/green mix or white/green mix that has been fermented.
While most kratom comes from red vein, there really is green vein kratom and white vein kratom. These are just a lot harder to find and get, but they do indeed exist.
Hopefully that will help you understand how kratom colors work.

Personally, I love red vein kratom and I know our customers love red vein too. Red vein kratom is one of the best kratoms to buy. Most red vein comes from Southeast Asia regions.
What makes red vein kratom unique is its ability to grow in some tough environments. It’s another reason I feel personally connected to red kratom powder, it’s certainly a survivor and so am I. A lot of kratom users feel that same personal connection.
