These trees can grow up to 15 meters in height and are known by the distinctive colors of their leaf veins. These colors can be red, white or green – giving rise to different strains of the plant.

The green vein kratom grows in South East Asian countries like Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. Based on the place of origin you will find different varieties like Green Maeng Da, Green Riau and Green Sumatra.
There is some variation in the effects between these varieties, depending on the strength of the strain. We recommend the Maeng Da and Riau as these are strong and give optimum results.

Green Sumatra – The Sumatra Kratom also originates in the north-west islands of Indonesia. The humid climate peculiar to the Sumatra islands, led to the growth of an alkaloid rich kratom variety. It is a great confidence booster and creates a stimulating atmosphere that encourages conversation, alertness and focus.
