Kratom is an impressive plant. Those who use the powder made from the leaves enjoy a range of benefits, and it is with little wonder that kratom has become so popular in recent years. The Western world might be hundreds of years behind Southeast Asia when it comes to kratom, but people are starting to catch up and to learn the wonders of this plant. More specifically, it is the leaves of the plant.

The leaves from the tree at cultivated in various places in Southeast Asia, and they are harvested using different methods and at different times. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about kratom is the diversity it can offer. When it is harvested at different types, and from different locations, the properties can differ because of the varying alkaloid content.

This variety means there are many different options available for those who are looking to buy kratom. Having variety is great, but it can also be somewhat overwhelming. This is particularly true for those who are buying for the first time and who have not yet developed a preference as to the color and strain they like.

We understand how confusing it can be when you start to hear the different terminology used. To help make things somewhat easier, you will find a list of some of the top options that you might want to try. This should help those who are new to find a good option with which to start. First, though, let’s look at how the kratom is typically named.

Colors and Regions

Kratom is typically named based on the color of the veins on the leaves that were used to make the powder – white, green, or red – along with the region where the leaves were grown and harvested. While are made from young leaves with white veins. Green veins are mature but still younger than the red veins. Different maturity levels in the leaves can change the alkaloid balance to achieve different results.

Now, let’s get a closer look at some of the top options on the market.

Green Maeng Da

When you are looking for kratom powder online, you will often come across the term maeng da. This is not a reference to a region, as you will find with other types of kratom. Instead, the term refers to the quality of the product. It is meant to show that it is kratom of exceptionally high quality. Therefore, the green maeng da would be made from leaves with green veins and it would signify the quality of the powder. Other colors of maeng da are available, as well.

Additionally, since this does not rely on a location, it could come from any number of plantations that grow these trees in various parts of Southeast Asia. Some of the common places where the trees are grown include Thailand and Indonesia.

The green maeng da, regardless of where it comes from, should have some qualities of both white and red kratom since it is in the middle of the maturity cycle of the leaves.

Green Malaysian

Another popular option is the green Malaysian kratom. As the name indicates, it is made using leaves with green veins and it is typically harvested in Malaysia. However, there are some restrictions in Malaysia, which means that some of the options on the market could be harvested in Indonesia. The powder has a green appearance reminiscent of the veins. Again, because this is a green variety, it will contain aspects of the white and the red, as well. Many people like this strain because it is believed to have a large amount of mitragynine alkaloid. This is believed to provide people with energy and focus.

Red Bali

Many buyers and users of kratom have become fans of red Bali and consider it to be a classic strain. This is a red strain, meaning that it makes use of leaves that were harvested at their full level of maturity. They are then ground into a powder. This powder has an earthy brownish-red appearance to it. Because this is red Bali, it was harvested in Bali.

The red strain, due to their maturity level, has different concentrations of alkaloids in them. The red typically have higher concentrations of mitraphylline and 7-hydroxymitragynine. These are thought to have different properties from the green.

White Borneo

From Borneo, this strain makes use of leaves that are not fully mature. While the options from Borneo might not be as well-known as strains from other areas, they still have their fans. The leaves that are harvested are still young, and again, they will have a different alkaloid makeup. They have a good balance of ingredients, and those who take and enjoy the kratom find that it tends to be smoother than some of the other strains and that it can provide a nice energy boost.

What’s Right for You?

Now that you have a better idea of what some of the most popular strains are called and what they can offer, it is time to think about what’s best for you. Some might want to choose a couple of options and then try them at different times to find a favorite that will meet their needs and provide the benefits they want.
