If you haven’t heard of kratom, you’ve probably been living under a rock for the past few decades. All jokes aside, kratom is a plant that has gained much praise and popularity among users, especially those who indulge in the consumption of recreational drugs.
It is often marketed and treated as a dietary supplement, but this practice was banned in 2014 by the FDA.
One of the most commonly used and sought after is the so-called Indo Kratom. Sit back, relax, and let’s dive deeper into the wondrous world of Kratom.
What is Kratom?
Kratom is also sometimes referred to as ketum, but its official name is mitragyna speciosa. It originally comes from Papua New Guinea, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand. As a tropical evergreen tree, it actually belongs to the coffee family of plants.
In spite of rather poor research into the safety concerning its therapeutic abilities, it has grown quite popular in relieving pain and several other medical conditions and symptoms.

Indo Kratom Explained
As the name so obviously implies, Indo Kratom hails from Indonesia. It is one of the most widely used strains of kratom, mostly due to the fact that Indonesia is actually the largest exporter.
The country provides the perfect environment for the growth of many different strains of Kratom. The combination of sunlight, rainfall and humidity is simply ideal. Locals have spent centuries finely honing their growing and harvesting skills.
The Good and Bad Effects
Indo Kratom is one of the most desired strains amongst Kratom users. This is due to the fact that it offers quite a unique set of desired effects. There are different vein colors and different strains of Indo Kratom, and their respective effects may vary, but there are a few which can be considered common.
These include mood lifting, sedation, relaxation, abatement of opiate withdrawal syndrome, and pain relief.
In some cases, you may experience certain unwanted side effects, but these are commonly associated with lower quality Indo strains. When they do occur, they usually include wobbles and nausea. Always purchase Indo Kratom from reputable sellers in order to avoid these.
Now that we’ve covered the basic information, let’s dig even deeper, as Indo Kratom is a very broad umbrella term for many different strains. Even though they all originate from the same region, they provide very different effects.
There are three main strains and those include the Super Green Indo, Red Vein Indo, and White Vein Indo. Let’s get into further details on all three strains.
Super Green Indo
This one has been the latest craze in the world of Kratom enthusiasts. This is mostly due to the fact that it supposedly provides relaxation and stimulation, all at once. It is rather hard to explain how any substance can soothe you and make you feel high, but apparently, it’s possible.
Even though it’s a green veined Kratom, some users tend to compare it with the euphoric sensations more often associated with red veined Kratom strains.
It’s gotten its name from the actual process of manufacture. The “super” means that it comes from the super-sized leaves of the derivative plant. Compared to the ordinary leaves, these are jam packed with alkaloids, and all the mental and physical effects are therefore much more pronounced.
Now, let’s talk more about the actual effects, which are known to be quite versatile. As is the case with almost all strains of Kratom, the Super Green has very potent analgesic properties and comes in very handy in relieving different sorts of pain.
Whether you’re experiencing pain induced by a disease, surgical pain, therapeutic pain, or simply acute pain, Super Green Indo will provide great relief.
Some users praise its ability to provide a completely relaxed state of mind, combined with a feeling of being highly focused.
Those who use it as a recreational drug claim that induces mood elevation, state of euphoria, and heightened alertness.
In rare cases, the Super Green Indo may be associated with side effects such as nausea and mild headaches.
Red Vein Indo
Slightly different from the Super Green strain, the Red Vein Indo is commonly known as one of the most potent ones out there. Its leaves contain high levels of alkaloids, so it’s often used by those who crave complete body relaxation and a relief from anxiety or stress.
Those who are in the know sometimes refer to it as Borneo Kratom or Original Bali as it originates from these regions of Indonesia.
Users who opt for the Red Vein Indo strain are commonly those who want Kratom to provide relaxation. This strain is commonly associated with positive effects such as an optimistic attitude, pleasant skin sensations, undisturbed sleep, relief from worry, reduction of stress levels, eradication of anxiety, complete muscle relaxation, and pain relief.
Only minutes after taking the Kratom, you can feel all these sensations, and they can last up to six hours. Aside from these effects, Red Vein Indo can also enhance your immunity, reduce the blood pressure and act as a very potent antioxidant.
As far as side effects are concerned, those are few and far between, and they usually involve a feeling of dizziness, mild headaches, and sometimes nausea.
White Vein Indo
As you’ve probably guessed, White Vein Indo got its name from the characteristic white color of the central veins of its leaves.
Once again, it is a highly popular strain of Kratom, originating from the hot and damp regions of Indonesia.
If you ask the Kratom connoisseurs, White Vein Indo is a strain meant for those who want enriched levels of energy and productivity. Quite often it can replace the morning caffeine associated with coffee.
Another interesting fact is that it’s widely known for greatly enhancing one’s communication skills. This is because it’s highly effective in increasing the levels of released endorphins.
It also comes in very handy in relieving the symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Considering the fact that it’s an umbrella term for a group of different Kratom strains all originating from the same region, we’ve tried to get you to know them a little better and make it easier for you to choose the one which suits your needs the most.
