Green Thai Kratom Effects: Is This the Strain for You?

Share this post: twitterfacebookpinterest Whatsapp

Green Thai kratom has emerged as one of the more popular strains in the U.S., even holding its own against familiar favorites like Maeng Da kratom and Red Bali kratom. But what is Green Thai kratom used for? What makes it so special? And is it the right strain for you? You have a lot of strains to choose from, so before you make your next purchase, you might want to familiarize yourself with Green Thai kratom’s effects and benefits


An Introduction to Green Thai Kratom 

To understand Green Thai kratom effects, you first have to understand its origins and characteristics. Like all kratom strains, Green Thai comes from the rich evergreen tree known as Mitragyna Speciosa. The tree is native to Southeast Asia, where it thrives with the combination of year-round tropical humidity and nutrient-rich soil. 

Different Southeast Asian countries and islands have their own native kratom strains. Indo kratom is native to Indonesia, Malay kratom is native to Malaysia, and Thai kratom—of course—is native to Thailand (so is Maeng Da kratom, but that’s another story for another day). 

A kratom strain does not have to be grown in its native area. Although Thai kratom is native to Thailand, it’s most commonly grown in Indonesia. This is because Thailand only recently lifted its decades-long prohibition on kratom cultivation. We might soon see a booming kratom market in Thailand (in fact, we’re already seeing signs of it emerging), but for right now, your Green Thai is most likely to be grown in Indonesia, and that’s okay. As long as your green-vein kratom is made with Thai genetics, you’re going to experience Green Thai kratom effects

But this still leaves us with the most obvious question: What is Green Thai kratom used for


Understanding Green-Vein Kratom 

The “green” in “Green Thai” refers to the color of the leaf vein. As kratom leaves mature on the tree, the leaves gradually take on different hues. First they appear white or gray (white-vein kratom), and then they gradually take on more of a greenish hue (green-vein kratom), and finally they turn red or brown (red-vein kratom). 

The alkaloid profile constantly changes as the leaf matures. Young leaves are very high in mitragynine (the more energizing alkaloid) while more mature leaves accumulate higher concentrations of 7-hydroxymitragynine (the more relaxing kratom alkaloid). That’s why white vein kratom is known for being more stimulating while red vein kratom tends to be more calming and restful. Green-vein kratom—like Green Thai kratom—falls somewhere in the middle. 

Whereas red-vein and white-vein kratom varieties tend to have predictable effects, green-vein kratom is a bit of a wildcard. Some strains take on more of the red characteristics while some strains retain more of the white characteristics. That’s why, if you’re going to purchase any green-vein kratom strain, it’s important to do your research ahead of time and know what you’re getting. 


What Are the Most Common Green Thai Kratom Effects?

green thaiBased on a wide variety of user reports and reviews, Green Thai tends to favor the more energizing side of the kratom spectrum. Its effects have been described as invigorating, mood-enhancing, and focused. 

So what is Green Thai kratom used for? The simple answer is that Green Thai kratom’s benefits lend themselves to daytime use. This strain may be an excellent choice if: 

  • You’re seeking a mild to moderate energy boost that won’t give you the jitters 
  • You want to be productive and focused during the day 
  • You’re seeking a potent daytime strain that’s suitable for beginners and novices
  • You love the stimulating aromas of green kratom but are looking for something slightly more energizing 

If you’ve spent any time online searching for White Thai kratom, you’ve probably noticed that there are very few options available—and some of the options that do exist appear sketchy at best. If you like the aromas and smooth effects of Red Thai but you’re seeking a more energizing alternative, Green Thai is actually your best bet. Certain strains don’t lend themselves well to specific vein colors, and Thai kratom functions best when the leaves are slightly more mature. That’s one reason why white-vein Thai is such a rarity. 

Due to its energizing aromas, Green Thai is a hit with many white-vein kratom lovers. But like any high-quality green strain, it offers a few red-vein benefits as well. For instance, Green Thai has been observed to support mental calm and relief from certain types of physical discomfort. So you still get a full spectrum of effects even if Green Thai kratom’s effects tend to lean more white than red. 


How to Know if Green Thai Kratom Effects Are Right for You 

You might appreciate Green Thai kratom’s benefits if you like your kratom smooth, energizing, and motivating. However, with so many different strains on the market (many of which have only subtle differences), it can be difficult to find your own perfect strain.
