Mitra Speciosa Colors/Veins

Kratom is typically divided into 3 distinct colors or veins, which are White Vein, Green Vein, and Red Vein

The Kratom tree, commonly known as Mitragyna Speciosa, is a fascinating species with a rich history and numerous approaches to cultivation, gathering, and processing. Despite the tree being a single species, there are several techniques applied, which produce foliage with veins of various colors. That is the reason behind multiple Kratom color designations existing in the world. 

Each Kratom strain has unique effects depending on the vein color of the plant. White Vein Kratom, for instance, is renowned for its stimulating effects on the body, while Green and Red Vein Kratom are known for inducing relaxation and calm in the body. The distinct approaches to growing and harvesting Kratom have led to a vast array of color and effect options.

Several kratom strains have little to no distinguishing characteristics despite regional variances and harvesting and processing techniques. As a result, the kratom is classified according to the color of the veins in the leaves.  The color refers to the time at which and how the leaves were harvested. The veins come in various colors, including White, Green, and Red. These colors define the unique characteristics and effects of kratom. Some strains are further denoted with names that not only describe their color but also the origin such as Sumatra, Bali, and Borneo.  The colors can also be blended to create a hue such as Yellow to combine effects of the original vein colors.


What is Mitra Speciosa?


Kratom is often used to self-treat conditions such as pain, coughing, diarrhea, anxiety and depression, opioid use disorder, and opioid withdrawal. An estimated 1.7 million Americans aged 12 and older used kratom in 2021, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health. The U.S. FDA has not approved any prescription or over-the-counter drug products containing kratom or its two main chemical components, mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine (7-OH-mitragynine).

White Kratom
Kratom leaves that feature a white central vein can be mood-enhancing and energizing. White kratom is sometimes used as a stimulant to improve sharpness and alertness, while minimizing fatigue. Taking white kratom late in the day can lead to restlessness and insomnia.
Green Kratom
Green vein kratom can improve alertness and may mildly boost energy levels. This type of kratom is also used to treat pain without inducing drowsiness or lethargy.
Red Kratom
Red vein kratom is the most popular form of kratom. This has potentially relaxing, calming, and stress-relieving properties. Different strains of red kratom have different properties, although most red veined kratom is used to promote rest and relaxation.

Mitragyna Speciosa has different effects on the user, depending on the quantity to quality and also the body chemistry of the individual taking the strain. Since it has different effects on different users, a review of the two strains will help in making the ultimate choice or the one to purchase. The White or yellow strains are much appreciated and recognized for their strong energy boost, mood enhancement, improved focus, stimulation, and euphoria. However, a given dose has a different effect on the user. For instance, the consumption of a low dose of Thai strain Mitra is considered stimulating as opposed to being sedating at a higher dosage.
