Top Green Kratom Strains for Beginners

Top Green Kratom Strains for Beginners

Kratom, also known as mitragyna speciosa, is a member of the coffee plant family and has been used for centuries throughout Southeast Asia for its therapeutic properties. Kratom is separated by the vein color of the leaves into red, green, white, or yellow strains, each of which have a different blend of alkaloids to provide different effects. 

Green strains provide the best of both worlds with their relaxation and stimulating effects and also have an abundance of alkaloids. Those with anxiety tend to navigate towards the green vein as well as individuals suffering from mild amounts of pain. Green strains are good beginner strains because they provide the most benefits, but are also beneficial for the experienced Kratom user.
