Yellow strains are relatively new and still quite rare, so this strain review may be your first introduction to Yellow Vietnam Kratom. The Mitragyna speciosa trees that are used to harvest this particular strain have a long history. In fact, they’ve grown wild in Vietnam’s Long Xuynn and near the Mekong River for at least 5,000 years.
Unlike other parts of Southeast Asia, Vietnam didn’t begin exporting Kratom until the last few years. The nation’s Kratom harvesters haven’t been able to keep up with the demand so far, which often makes Yellow Vietnam Kratom difficult to find.
Most Kratom enthusiasts are used to three veins: Green, Red, and White. Some claim that yellow isn’t a real vein. However, the existence of the visible yellow vein in some Kratom leaves proves otherwise. The major question, though, is whether the vein turns yellow on the tree due to local conditions or as a result of the drying process.
Either way, Yellow Vietnam has very unique properties that make it highly desirable. For example, this strain’s performance is both sweet and focused. In other words, it’s the perfect Kratom for first thing in the morning or before an important event.
Per Reddit members, Yellow Vietnam is slow acting but worthwhile. Many of the Kratom forum comments include people calling this strain their “favorite.” In another thread, Redditors said, “I love it,” “[it] mix[es] well with greens,” and “I bought a kilo for my doomsday stash.”
If you’re looking to branch outside the Yellow vein, you can also find Vietnam Kratom in all of the typical varieties. Like usual, there are some very specific differences between these strains.
Yellow Vietnam Kratom is rare enough that many highly reputable vendors don’t sell it. Fortunately, we’ve gathered a list of a few places where you can usually find this Mitragyna speciosa strain.
