Being utilized for centuries in Malaysia, Green Malay is recognized as one of the better strains of kratom. Green Malay is known for its greater potency and higher impact compared to other strains. The leaves of Malaysian kratom have a darker green appearance and are usually harvested at approximately 100-180 mm in width and length. The larger that the leaf is before harvesting, the greater the alkaloid content because of increasing surface area to volume ratio. Even though all colors of Malaysian leaves are extremely useful, Green Malay is considered to be the most powerful, all around strains on the market. Green Malay has a higher concentration of alkaloids within every cubic meter of leaf compared to all other kratom. When compared to other strains, there is a smoother impact when it comes to stimulation.
Green Malay provides mood elevation, simultaneous boost in mood, and pain relief. This strain is known to provide euphoria alongside increased energy, increased appetite, and analgesic effects caused by the numbing of receptors in the brain. What separates Green Malay from other kratom is that all of these pronounced effects do not happen at the same time. Consumers report that this particular strain produces energy for the first hour, followed by euphoria—which makes Green Malay unique to all other types of kratom.
One of Green Malay’s main effects is stimulation, giving the consumer increased feelings of energy throughout the day. Green Malay also does not cloud a person’s thinking process unlike other energy boosting supplements or medications. This strain can help a person think more creatively, among other things.
Green Malay aids in relieving prolonged discomfort ranging from back pain, knee pain, arthritis, headaches, etc… Since there is a higher amount of alkaloids in this strain, people experience longer lasting pain relief than other strains. Many strains of kratom—such as reds—provide pain relief, but can leave the consumer feeling a bit more sedated. Green Malay not only gives the consumer pain relief, but a stimulation that can keep one working longer and more efficient.
Green Malay is also known for an overall sense of well-being. People who work hectic jobs and careers tend to flock to this strain because of its mood elevating properties that help one get out of their monotony of daily tasks. Users of Green Malay report a more optimistic outlook on life in general. NOTE: Like all kratom, users should make a plan of rotating strains to avoid tolerance build up to a particular strain.
It is also noted that Green Malay does take longer to take effect, ranging from 1-1.5 hours after initial consumption and lasting anywhere from 5-7 hours, depending on dosage and tolerance. With that being said, do not dose more and more if you do not feel the effects within a half-hour to an hour. It is better to wait a full hour and a half before re-dosing this strain. Green Malay kratom is a universal soldier that every consumer should have in their kratom arsenal.
