Moderate Strains

Currently, many in the kratom community agree the best moderate strain is Green Malaysian.

Malaysian (Malay)

Green Malay is by far the most popular moderate strain.

Super Green Malaysian (Malay)

What makes this strain “Super”? It all comes down to leaf size and the process implemented to produce a more potent product. For a “Super ” strain, kratom farmers will harvest the biggest leaves from the trees. These big leaves have a larger surface area, an unusual cell wall density, and tend to have a high concentration of alkaloids in them.



In addition to the leaf selection, the manufacturing process differs from your average strains. When Super Green Malaysian is produced, extra sifting/separating steps are taken to remove all of the stem material before the leaves are crushed into a fine powder. “Super” kratom products sometimes have a slightly higher price point due to the extra time and labor that is involved.

 

Analyses of the medical literature and select Internet sites indicate that individuals in the United States are increasingly using kratom for the self-management of pain and opioid withdrawal. Kratom contains pharmacologically active constituents, most notably mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. Kratom is illegal in many countries. Although it is still legal in the United States, the US Drug Enforcement Administration has placed kratom on its “Drugs and Chemicals of Concern” list. Physicians should be aware of the availability, user habits, and health effects of kratom. Further research on the therapeutic uses, toxic effects, and abuse potential of kratom and its constituent compounds are needed.
