Kinds of Kratom , the strains and the meaning of kratom abbreviations

Posted on December 23, 2010 by


There are a lot of different types of kratom on the market, mostly these “types of kratom” are invented by vendors, dealer and kratom wholesalers, to distinguish their blends or kratom from others.

The actual areas where kratom is grown or found are limited, mainly in the southern part of Thailand (Illegal , and under constant pressure of police and milatary many trees are disappearing here), on the Malay peninsular in the northern part of Malaysia, just south of the the Thai border (also Illegal, but police in Malaysia is less active) and in Indonesia. The most active parts for kratom harvest are Borneo or Kalimantan and Sumatra. Kratom is legal in Indonesia, but some restrictions are in place. Other leaves seem to grow elsewhere and some vendors claim to have “kratom farms” in Hawai, India and the US.

The most interesting phenomena is the so called Bali Kratom, which is in fact originating from Borneo, but was called Bali kratom for marketing reasons years ago, now even Indonesian producers create Bali kratom. Mitragyne Speciosa never grew on Bali, and the existence of a Kratom Farm on Bali is unlikely and unclear.

Anyway, the list below is made by the people of the forum, we warmly recommend you register on this forum if you like to discuss more about kratom!
