If you are even the slightest bit familiar with the Kratom universe you probably know that there are three main Kratom color strain families- red vein, green vein and white vein and each possesses its own unique effects. But did you know that you can mix different color strains to provide a new unique experience? Well, you can and today we are going to cover what some of those combinations look like and what you might experience when making a Kratom blend of your own.
The Kratom Color Families Explained
Before we dive into the blends you can make it’s probably important to first explain what each color family is reported to do on their own.
Red Vein Kratom– Red Kratom strains are some of the most popular strains of Kratom out there and are reported to be responsible for a relaxing, sedative and analgesic effect. The reds are the mellow or slow Kratom strains.
White Vein Kratom– White Kratom is reportedly at the other end of the spectrum. Whites are said to be the stimulating strains that help promote focus, energy and motivation. Whites are what is referred to as the fast strains.
Green Vein Kratom– Green Kratom strains are reported to be more or less hybrid strains- a little red feeling and a little white. So these are the ones Kratom users typically seek when they are looking for the best of both worlds and want to be energized yet relaxed. These are the medium strains.
Okay so which ones do you blend? The best rule of thumb here is picking two strains that you have already tried and loved and wouldn’t mind experiencing at the same time.
How to Choose Your Blend
The first step in choosing your Kratom blend is knowing what effects you want. A quick reference for this is:
- Energy and Concentration– White Strains
- Mood-Boosting– Green Strains
- Relaxed Experience & Analgesic Effects– Red Strains
Then choose your secondary or complementary strain based on effects. Here are a few examples:
Green & White: If you are looking for a happy energy that isn’t too over the top, try mixing your favorite white and green strains. Just remember that if you put in more of one over the other you will more than likely experience the effects of that strain more. For instance more white than green could result in a more stimulating strain and more green could leave you with less energy. Maybe try Green Elephant and Super White Borneo for this one.
Red & White: If you are looking for an analgesic effect without the sedative effects try mixing your favorite red and white strains. The energy of the white will counter the effects of the sedative effects of the red. For this combination many Kratom users like Red Bali and White Maeng Da.
Green & Red: If you are looking to experience an overall sense of well-being, an analgesic effect and relaxation plus some energy and focus then the perfect blend of a green and a red is where it’s at. For this Kratom users often reach for Red Thai and Green Maeng Da.
These are just a few of the examples of blends you can create, but the sky is truly the limit and again we just suggest you try what you know and try different combinations of each until you come up with exactly what you are looking for.
A few helpful tips to get you started are:
- Put a little food in your stomach before you try your new blend since you just never know how your body will react and it’s better to be safe than to be sorry.
- Try mixing smaller amounts of your Kratom until you get the blend right where you want it.
- Mix more of the strain if you want a dominating effect.
- Always know you can adjust the effects by adding a little more of one or the other.
There you have it! You can be a mix-master of your own Kratom and make your own blends in the comfort of your home.
