Red Vein Kratom vs White Vein Kratom

Besides the different strains of Kratom, there is a clear distinction between what is called Red Vein Kratom and White Vein Kratom.

Although often found in the same regions, some areas have more Red Veins Kratom Trees and other more Whites. Borneo and Malaysia have more red kratom and Sumatra have relatively a higher population of white veins, for example.

Besides the geographical spread, the whites and the reds also have a different composition of alkaloids, causing different kratom effects.
Although the effects differ from person to person and are depending upon the dosage used, in general the distinction is as follows;

Red Vein Kratom:
More sedative even in lower dosage, local who used this traditionally said it caused a nice "buzz" but is less stimulating then his white vein brother. Traditionally it was often used for pain relief .

White Vein Kratom
Powder and crushed leaves of the white vein kratom tend to have more stimulating effects and some experience a more euphoric feeling from the whites compared to the red. White vein kratom is known to give extra endurance and is used by the traditional users for endurance in labor, training and exercise.
