A brief intro to Yellow Kratom
If you were to google Kratom today, the search results would basically be revolving around white, green, and red vein Kratom strains. Even when you visit different online Kratom stores, you will notice that most, if not all, of their strains, are of these three primary Kratom vein colors.
Lots of Kratom marketing taking place at the moment involves the three variants, and that’s why they are widely known. For the Yellow Kratom, very few are aware of its existence, let alone its benefits.
The truth is that Yellow Kratom is not harvested from any particular tree. Instead, it’s obtained from specific unique drying methods utilized on the regular Kratom strains. At least that’s what the Kratom farmers have made us believe. Unfortunately, they haven’t been forthcoming on what exactly the unique drying processes entail. This leaves the Kratom enthusiasts to speculate, and that’s where everyone comes up with their own theories on how yellow Kratom is made.
The most popular claim, as we’ve pointed out, is the unique drying process. This suggests that any of the three vein colors can undergo a prolonged drying process, which results in the yellow hue. Some explain that if the white or green vein strains are dried outdoors in the sun followed by a keen fermentation procedure, they are likely to turn into yellow.
We’ve also seen some reports suggesting that yellow Kratom is obtained from leaves that are picked in the last stages of their lives. This is unlike the other Kratom strains, which are usually picked when the leaves are matured.
Some have gone as far as claiming that yellow Kratom is merely a blend of different Kratom strains that are fermented.
To cut a long story short, the origin of yellow Kratom remains mostly unknown. What we do know for sure is that they are unique in their own ways, which means that their alkaloid content is different, and hence the benefits they can deliver are different too.
What are the Benefits of Yellow Kratom?
The effects of Yellow Kratom are closely compared to the green vein varieties. They deliver stimulant effects that are quite effective but nowhere as intense as the white vein variety. This should not be interpreted to mean that they are weak. Actually, to some people – especially ones with no experience of using Kratom – the Yellow Kratom can deliver a great experience. However, since it’s an herb, the experience will vary from one individual to the next, so you won’t know how good you’ll find it until you try it out.
Some people use the Yellow Kratom varieties to transition into the more stimulant white vein variants. This works really well as the yellow strains start to prepare your system by setting a decent baseline for the white vein to work on. As a result, the users get to enjoy the benefits of the intense white vein variants without the issues of sensitivity or other adverse reactions.
With that said, Yellow Kratom offers more than just stimulation. Here are some of the effects that users can expect:
- Enhanced concentration
- Anxiety and stress relief
- Mood elevation
- Pain relief
It’s also worth noting that the effects will vary depending on the specific Yellow Kratom variant used. Yes, the results remain the same for the most part, but certain strains are better at certain functions than the others. It’s just the same thing as the red, green, and white vein varieties. Therefore, it’s upon you as the user to find the appropriate yellow strain that will give you the results you need.
Types of Yellow Kratom
As the yellow Kratom grows more popular, we are starting to see more of its strains in the market. These include:
- Yellow Vietnam Kratom
Yellow Vietnam Kratom is perhaps the newest yellow strain in the market. As the name suggests, it comes from Vietnam and is believed to be the most potent of all the yellow strains out there. It’s even said to be more potent than some of the red, green, and white vein variants. That’s because the strain is believed to have between 20% to 25% more alkaloid content than most of the standard Kratom trees.
Yellow Vietnam Kratom can be used for stimulation as well as physical and mental relaxation. It also helps in fighting anxiety, enhancing mood and optimism/motivation. Another additional benefit of these strains is that its effects last much longer than most of the Kratom strains in the market today.
- Yellow Borneo Kratom
Yellow Borneo Kratom originates from Borneo Island. It’s well-known for its energizing and euphoric properties. It can also be used for numbing different forms of pain.
- Yellow Bali Kratom
This strain comes from Bali. It is very popular for its mood-enhancing capabilities, but it can also be used for other purposes such as sedation and stimulation. It’s, however, not as sedating as the Red Bali or stimulating as the white Bali. This can be both a good thing or a deal-breaker depending on your situation and how you look at it. For instance, a newbie will find its mild nature very compelling, while seasoned Kratom users will find it below their standards.
- Yellow Indo Kratom
Yellow Indo is most known for two things; its pleasing aroma and long-lasting effects. The strain has a very strong euphoric effect, so its best used for recreational purposes. Besides that, it can also be used at certain doses to deliver some mild stimulation. Some users also report some painkilling effects after taking Yellow Indo Kratom.
- Yellow Malay Kratom
Yellow Malay Kratom is a mild strain that can be used as an analgesic or for stimulation. It delivers gentle pain relief that could be useful to most people, but in certain severe cases, you may want to use a more analgesic strain. Its energizing impact is also not as intense as that of the white vein varieties and even some of the other yellow strains described above. Yellow Malay Kratom is a decent choice for the people who are more sensitive to Kratom and the ones who want to remain in control by having a mild experience.
Yellow Sumatra Kratom
It is very hard to come across Yellow Sumatra Kratom. The Sumatra strains are generally hard to come by, and that’s because the Sumatra Kratom trees are scarce.
Yellow Sumatra Kratom can be used for different purposes such as energy boost, euphoria, enhancing mood, and reducing stress levels.
Just because we’ve described the Yellow Kratom variants as milder than most of their counterparts doesn’t mean that they should be underestimated. At the end of the day, it is still Kratom, which means it can be problematic if it is abused.
You should also remember that everyone reacts differently to herbs. Therefore, someone else’s dose is not guaranteed to work on you. As such, you need to experiment and find your own ideal dose.
As a rule of thumb, all new users should start small. Like 1 to 2 grams small. Take this dose and note down the effects you’ll experience. Its impact should typically kick in after 30 or so minutes. In case you don’t feel anything, you can increase the dose slightly – by a gram – and take some time to feel the results. This is how people experiment until they find that perfect dose where they are getting the results they need at the desired intensity and without any adverse reactions. For most people, that dose is between 3 to 7 grams.
People who are looking to tap into the euphoric properties of Yellow Kratom may have to take more than 7 grams.
You’re strongly advised against using more than 10 grams of Yellow Kratom. These doses are too dangerous, plus they’re likely to increase your Kratom tolerance.
Yellow Kratom strains are a great way of introducing Kratom to your system. Other than Yellow Vietnam, most of the other varieties are quite mild, which is good if you are trying to get a fair Kratom experience that is free from adverse reactions.
The strains also come in very handy when rotating Kratom strains. We all understand that rotating strains is an excellent way of avoiding certain issues, and with the yellow variants, you get yet another strain that can give you the results you want while keeping you safe.
