Vietnam Kratom is a relatively new contender in the Mitragyna speciosa marketplace. Although it traces its roots back thousands of years, local farmers have only recently connected with Kratom vendors on the Western side of the world.
As its name suggest, Vietnam Kratom comes from Mitragyna speciosa plants and trees grown in Vietnam. The majority of Kratom leaves that are shipped from Vietnam to Western dealers is harvested near the Mekong River. This strain sets itself apart from others due to its unique growing conditions. The weather and soil that Vietnam Kratom is exposed to is quite different from those in other Kratom growing countries.
As usual, the Reddit Kratom community has lots to say about this strain. And, as usual, there’s a mixture of people who swear by it and people who are unimpressed. A thread from a couple of years ago contains some positive feedback. “I like it,” one forum member wrote. Another said, “I am a fan of yellow Vietnam in general.” Yet another pleased Redditor said, “Vietnam is the business. Great morning strain!” One Kratom enthusiast who isn’t a fan said that Vietnam Kratom is “underwhelming.”
Like most Kratom strains, you can choose between many different veins. The type that works best for you may not offer the same results to someone else. Therefore, trying various strains and veins is always your best bet.
Finding Vietnam Kratom isn’t always easy, especially if you want a specific vein. There are a few vendors that typically carry it, though, including:
