What’s the difference you ask?
The term red “vein” or white “vein” is referring to the colour of the veins in the kratom leaf when it was harvested. For example if the farmer who was harvesting kratom leaves in indonesia, happened to be harvesting red veined leaves. The name he might come up with could be along these lines “Super Duper Fucking Awesome Red Vein Indo” Same goes for thailand, If a Thai Kratom farmer decided to harvest and the vein was white he may decide this is some “Killer White Thai” or just “White Thai”.
When vendors add in excess things to the names, like the above ” Super Duper Fucking Awesome Red Vein Indo” you shouldn’t pay any attention to the super duper fucking awesome.
It doesn’t make any difference at all! It’s just marketing tactics. The actual name of that specific strain would be “Red Vein Indo” The same goes for the “Killer White Thai” It is really “White Thai”
Red Vein Kratom is a very common strain to come across. The effects that are usually among this category; Calming, Relaxing, Improved mood, Less anxiety, painkilling, help with insomnia, as well as sedative.
It is great for kicking back watching some tv and relaxing at home. It works better than any anti-depressant a doctor has ever tried to put me on as well. Although sometimes I get quite lazy with this variety, I can still be very productive. Red vein can help a lot with social anxiety.
Typical strains- Red Vein boreo, Red Vein indo, Red Vein Thai
White vein is typically among the thai origin, although there is red vein thai. White vein is much more common. The effects can be very similar to coffee, just as stimulating, but without the jitters.
The effects include; Increased awareness, improved concentration, better workouts, better cognitive performance, as well as increased sociability. White vein is excellent when going out and partying with your friends.
Typical strains- White Vein Thai, White Vein Indo.
Green vein offers the best of both worlds, it can be sedative. Or it can be energetic. This is highly dependant on the amount you burn. Let me explain; If you were to burn two-three grams of a green vein, it would more likely be an energetic aroma. Where as if you burned seven grams, you would almost always be sedative. Find out how to burn accurately here.
Typical strains- Green Malaysian, Green vein indo, Green vein Maeng Da(I have only seen this one a few times, but it is out there)
A Green vein aroma is in between White& Red Vein Kratom.
You would expect a green vein borneo to be a sedative incense, while you would more likely expect a green vein thai, to be energetic. While I’m telling you this, if you decide to go with a dodgy vendor, one that isn’t recommended by me or trusted by anyone, you’re likely to get burned. they throw any name onto there strains regardless of what it actually is. Some (Not all) vendor’s have no morals and are only in it for the money, which is why on occasion when you order kratom from certain vendors you get complete bunk. Until you find an awesome, reliable vendor. One that takes pride in great product & customer service.
Its like fishing without a hook.
Although I must admit, If you can get red vein kratom (thai) it is one of the most pleasant strains you will come across.
