green kratom leaves

Of all types of kratom, green vein kratom strains are the most popular. There are two reasons for that. Green kratom is the most common and offers the most balanced properties, providing kratom users with the perfect balance between the effects of white and red vein kratom strains.

And with green vein kratom being the most balanced option, it is the preferred strain among first-time users looking for a pleasant entry to their kratom journey. But what do green vein kratom strains offer precisely? What are their benefits and popular strains, and how to calculate the correct doses?

We'll answer all these and more green kratom-related questions in the following guide.


What Is Green Vein Kratom?

As briefly mentioned, there are three primary types of kratom colors - white, red, and green. All these types derive from the kratom plant (Mitragyna speciosa), the tree indigenous to the jungles of Southeast Asia, where traditional communities have used kratom for centuries. Different kratom colors own their name to the kratom leaf's veins. For example, white kratom leaves have white veins, red kratom leaves come with red veins, and green... Well, we think you know where we're going with this.


The leaf's vein color greatly impacts the kratom strain's effects. For instance, red vein kratom strains are derived from mature kratom trees. Because of that, red strains have a richer alkaloid content, which makes red kratom the most potent of the three kratom types, offering more sedative and analgesic effects due to a higher concentration of 7-hydroxy mitragynine. White vein kratom strains are on the other side of this spectrum, offering more energetic and stimulating properties due to a higher level of mitragynine, another dominating alkaloid next to the previously mentioned 7-hydroxy mitragynine. Green vein kratom, on the other hand, lands somewhere in the middle, providing the best of both worlds. What are its exact effects, though?

What Are Green Vein Kratom Effects?

As the most balanced strain, green vein kratom offers everything you can expect from kratom, providing users with a whole spectrum of kratom effects, ranging from stimulation to relaxation. As for what you will feel when taking green kratom strains, that will depend on the specific strain and dosage. Most green kratom users report the following effects:

  • The feeling of relaxation and calmness;
  • Mood and energy boost, and, in higher doses, mild to moderate sensations of euphoria;
  • The overall feeling of physical relief.

Again, what you experience will depend on what type of green kratom strain you use and how much of it you take. We'll talk more about calculating the right dosage in a moment. But first, let's discuss what these effects can help you with.

What Are Green Vein Kratom Benefits?

The kratom community values green kratom strains for several reasons. One of them is, of course, that balance between benefits offered by white and red vein kratom. It makes green strains more approachable, especially for first-time users. Their effects are also more long-lasting than white and red strains. When it comes to what green vein kratom can be used for, most users claim green strains can provide them with the following benefits:

  • Mild energy boost and increased focus;
  • Battling anxiety and stress;
  • Alleviating mild to moderate daytime pain;
  • Helping with faster and deeper sleep.

Green Vein Kratom Dosage Guide

Calculating the best green kratom dose can be tricky. That's because different strains offer various potency levels, resulting in slight differences in overall effects and benefits.  Lower doses are generally associated with energetic and stimulating properties, with higher doses typically providing more soothing and relaxing effects. Your dose will also depend on your individual factors, such as your experience with kratom, weight, height, etc. Proper hydration and taking kratom on a full or empty stomach will also impact the dose and expected effects.


So yes, calculating the kratom dosage isn't as straightforward as some think. Our advice is to start with smaller doses and slowly move your way upward until you experience the desired effects. If you go too low, you won't feel the wanted effects. If you go too high, you can experience unpleasant side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, or headache. To provide you with some kind of ballpark, most users divide kratom dosages into two categories:

  • Small kratom dose: 2-5 grams of kratom powder for energy and mood-boosting properties;
  • Higher kratom dose: 5-10 grams of green kratom powder for soothing and relaxing effects.

How to Take Green Vein Kratom?

Calculating the right dose is one thing. Another is choosing your preferred kratom ingestion method. You have several options here, including green vein kratom powder, kratom capsules, crushed kratom leaves, and extracts.

  • Kratom powder can be taken using the toss-and-wash method, where you "wash" the powder down your throat with water or your preferred beverage. The green kratom powder can also be mixed with a drink or used to prepare infused kratom tea.
  • Kratom capsules resemble traditional coated tablets. Their benefit is that they contain a specific amount of kratom (usually 500-600 mg), making them a perfect option for inexperienced users who want to try kratom.
  • Crushed kratom leaves are used exclusively for preparing kratom tea, whereas kratom extracts can be taken directly by applying drops under the tongue or added to food or drinks. Extracts are typically the most potent kratom products, making them a popular choice among experienced users.

The Most Popular Green Kratom Strains

While kratom divides into three primary types - white, red, and green (and sometimes yellow) - each of these variations divides into multiple strains, with every kratom strain offering slightly different effects and benefits. What are the most popular green vein kratom strains? Let's find out.

Green Maeng Da

No matter the primary kratom type, Maeng Da kratom strains are by far the most popular ones. What characterizes the Green Maeng Da kratom strain is its higher potency, which results in stronger effects, especially when taken in higher doses. This green vein kratom strain can be used for dealing with anxiety and issues with maintaining focus, providing more potent mood and focus-boosting properties.

Green Horn

Green Horn kratom strain originates from Indonesia. It owes its name to its uniquely-shaped horn-like leaves, which are then processed to create a unique blend of the highest quality. That perfect blend of alkaloids results in kratom, which offers a well-balanced mix of both stimulating and soothing effects.

Green Bali

Green Bali kratom is mainly recognized for its strong stimulating effects. Indeed, this green strain can offer an excellent alternative to caffeine, falling much closer to the energizing side of the kratom properties spectrum associated with white strains. Green Bali strain can also help boost one's mood, often causing moderate euphoric states when taken in higher doses.

Green Borneo

Harvested from kratom trees growing on the beautiful island of Borneo, Indonesia, the Green Borneo kratom strain is the second-most popular green strain next to Green Maeng Da. Like Green Horn, Green Borneo is a more balanced strain, recognized as the well-rounded option for its wide spectrum of effects, ranging from mood-boosting to sedative properties.

Green Hulu Kapuas

Although not as popular as some other green vein kratom strains, Green Hulu Kapuas is beginning to gain more attention within the kratom community. It's a strain that offers a perfect mix of all known kratom effects, providing users with, depending on the dose, either a much-needed energy boost or the feeling of physical and mental relaxation.

Green Malay

Green Malay kratom might be a good option for people struggling in social situations. It offers strong relaxing properties, perfect for alleviating stress and anxiety. Also, while it's not the most potent strain on this list, Green Malay kratom can be helpful when dealing with mild to moderate pain, with many users saying it helps alleviate pain and inflammation.

Green Thai

Last but not least, we have the Green Thai kratom strain. Originating from Thailand, Green Thai kratom offers similar effects to the Green Malay strain, such as relaxation and, in higher doses, euphoria. Whenever you feel anxious or stressed, this green-strain kratom can provide you with the perfect solution.

Wrapping Up

Of all kratom types, green vein kratom strains are the most popular. First of all, green strains are the most accessible compared to red and white kratom variations. Secondly, with green vein kratom offering a more balanced set of properties, green strains provide the perfect gateway to kratom for first-time users. Green vein strains aren't as potent as red vein kratom, nor are they as stimulating as white kratom strains. They offer the best of both worlds, helping kratom beginners experience their desired effects.
