Those who understand and have some basic information about kratom would realize that Vietnam is not known to be a big supplier, exporter, and cultivator of Kratom of various strains. Most of the kratom strains and colors that we are aware of have been cultivated in some Southeast Asian countries like Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and a few other small countries. However, not very long ago, Vietnam also has been identified as an up and coming market for yellow kratom.
They are known as Yellow Vietnam Kratom and they have stood the test of time. However, as is the case with the variants that are available in southeast Asia, Vietnamese kratom is also derived from the mitragyna speciosa plant. This is an evergreen that is mostly found in Southeast Asia in the countries that I have mentioned above. Various strains of kratom have been used for centuries in Asia because they are supposed to have some proven and time-tested therapeutic use and also can be used as an herbal medicine. In this article, we will be having a closer look at the yellow Vietnam kratom and try to get some pertinent and useful information about the same.
Some Basic Information
The Yellow Vietnam Kratom strain is grown in the Mekong Delta region in a place called Long Xuyen. It also is grown in the mountainous terrain of Mekong River regions of Vietnam. The condition, quality and type of soil along with the climate of the region perhaps contribute to the unique taste, effects, and color of the Yellow Vietnam Kratom. Though it is of recent discovery, the strain is becoming quite popular because of some positive effects. These include soothing impact, sedative qualities and other such attributes that are available in other kratom strains and variants.
Why It is Different From Other Kratom Strains
There are some unique differences between yellow Vietnam kratom when compared to other kratom extracts or powders. We are listing down a few of them.
Color: There is little doubt that the color is perhaps one of the biggest differences as far as yellow Vietnam Kratom is concerned. This kratom variant gets its color and name because of the region it is cultivated and grown in. Further, the drying process has a similarity to the tea fermentation process.
Taste: There is no doubt that most variants of kratom have a bitter taste and this often is not liked by many users especially when it has to be consumed for a long period of time. However, this is not the case with yellow Vietnam kratom because this strain tastes sweet and this certainly is a big and pleasant difference. Though kratom is basically consumed because of the mental, physical and psychological benefits that it offers, there are reasons to believe that this yellow variant from Vietnam will be remembered for its palatable taste combined with the various benefits that are associated with other strains and colors of kratom. It is easier to swallow or ingest in other forms such as capsules, tablets, or other forms.
Non-Sedative: Kratom, when it is taken in the right doses, works even as an effective sedative. Hence, many users take it at higher doses if they are suffering from insomnia or other forms of sleep disorders. However, when it comes to Yellow Vietnam Kratom it is relatively free from sedative effects and many feel that it has no pronounced sedative effects worth the name. Hence, in this respect, this particular strain of kratom has a special place and is certainly different from other strains and colors including red, green and white.
What Are Its Uses?
Mood Enhancement: Those who have used yellow Vietnam kratom are of the opinion that it has a balanced and pleasant effect when it is taken for the purpose of mood enhancement. It works well also as an antidepressant. Compared to other variants of kratom found in Thailand, the yellow variant of Vietnam has 25% more alkaloids. This goes in making it an efficient strain of kratom and it can improve mood within a much shorter period of time.
Analgesic: Many end users find kratom quite attractive because it helps in natural and side-effect free pain management and pain relief. Yellow kratom from Vietnam may not be very effective against chronic pain when compared to many Indo Kratom variants. However, it still continues to be used for pain management because it seemingly has some useful inhibitory effects when it comes to chronic and acute pain. They are therefore used very commonly as an analgesic. It works well on pain without the sedative effects that are often associated with other strains of kratom.
Mental Clarity & Focus: This particular strain of kratom could also be useful for giving mental concentration and also in helping improve focus quite a bit. As mentioned earlier, in the absence of pronounced sedative qualities, Yellow Vietnam Kratom could also be useful for improving concentration and staying alert and active when there is something demanding or something urgent.
Improves Visual Perception – There is some evidence to suggest that regular use of Yellow Vietnam Kratom could improve the visual perception and if this is true and verifiable in more numbers of people, then there is no doubt that it certainly is a big way forward. However, many believe that these are just hearsays and opinions and therefore some more research is required only after which things can move forward.
Though by and large there are hardly any side effects, some people might take some time to get used to the dosage and it might take them a couple of days to feel normal. Till such time there could be some simple side effects like headache, stomach problems, and dryness of the mouth.
The yellow Vietnam kratom should not be taken on an empty stomach like all other strains and variants of kratom. It is also important to ensure that the users stay hydrated because dehydration can occur when this strain is used without water. The right dosage is important and it would be better to get started to with a small dosage and then move to a higher dosage. 2 grams is the right dosage to start with. Take medical advice if you are using it initially.
To summarize and conclude, the yellow Vietnam Kratom is a good product in more ways than one. It is effective, safe and can be used for a wide variety of conditions with good effects.
