What Is Kratom?
Before we get into Kratom colors specifically, let’s review Kratom overall. Kratom, or mitragyna speciosa, is an evergreen tree native to Southeast Asia that is related to the coffee tree. These trees grow at towering heights up to 80 feet tall.
These trees have been in use for hundreds of years in the Southeastern Asian cultures from which they are native. Traditionally, field laborers would pluck leaves right from the tree and chew on them throughout their day. This would help the workers to remain alert throughout their day, and to ward off the aches and pains from their labors. Additionally, Kratom has been in use for centuries in the traditional medicine practices of these cultures in various ways.
What Are Kratom Colors?
Kratom colors are very significant for Kratom for everything from harvesting time to the effects that they have on the user. The final color is actually dependent on the maturity of the Kratom tree itself at harvesting time. In fact, the ‘color’ of Kratom actually refers to the actual veins on the leaves themselves.
When a Kratom tree is very young, the veins on the leaves appear white. Immature Kratom trees produce white Kratom. As the tree matures, the veins of the leaves take on a reddish hue. Kratom trees at this mid-life stage produce red Kratom. And as the trees reach full maturity, the leaf veins turn green; the source of green Kratom.
