Kratom Field in Indonesia

Kratom field in Indonesia

The Kratom plant is harvested, dried, and processed in a wide variety of ways, and it’s these unique techniques that contribute to the differences found in most Kratom strains. Generally speaking, there are three categories of Kratom leaves used to classify most Kratom strains. These categories are White Vein, Green Vein, and Red Vein. The term ‘vein’ refers to the leaf venation patterns found on the underside of the Kratom leaf. Younger Kratom trees can have leaf veins that are lighter in color (White Vein). As Kratom trees mature, their leaf veins can begin to blend in with the color of the leaf itself (Green Vein). The most mature Kratom leaves can have reddish or brownish underside leaf veins (Red Vein). Key Point: It’s important to note that not all Kratom tree leaves undergo this leaf vein coloration process to a ‘T’. There are numerous variables that can determine the color of Kratom leaf veins including genetics, soil type, nutrient absorption, and sunlight received during the Kratom tree’s life cycle. When Kratom leaves are harvested at specific times during the lifespan of the Kratom tree, timing is everything. A White Vein Kratom leaf might become a Green Vein Kratom leaf in just a few months, and given enough time, that green-veined leaf can progress into the Red Vein category within another year or two. The vast majority of Kratom leaves are red-veined at the time of harvest, and it’s the post-harvest treatments applied to them that determine the final color hue of the powder and its associated alkaloid profile.
