Yellow Borneo (aka Kalimantan, Ketapang, Jongkong, Hulu)

Yellow Borneo kratom icon

To create Yellow Borneo, kratom farmers supposedly dry White Borneo for longer in the sun. This “curing” process produces a kratom strain with distinctly darkened leaves and slightly altered effects.

Most users describe Yellow Borneo as moderately stimulating and somewhat euphoric. At moderate doses (2.5-5g), it may elevate one’s energy levels and mood while reducing fatigue. For other users, the strain is “middle-of-the-road” and is simultaneously energizing and sedating.

Although Yellow Borneo appears to offer a balanced range of effects, its overall potency might not be comparable to other strains. In addition, Yellow Borneo’s pain-relieving potential seems limited.

We cannot reach a consensus on this strain’s average duration of effects at this time. Yellow Borneo doesn’t appear to be more or less nauseating than other strains.

Due to the subjective nature of kratom and personal variations in body and brain chemistry, your experiences with this strain might differ from the average user.

Possessing a generally mild and balanced nature, Yellow Borneo appears to be more subdued but ultimately similar to its energetic White-veined counterpart.
