  • May offer a broad, balanced range of effects
  • Can elevate mood and energy
  • Potentially less fatiguing than other similar strains


  • May not excel in any one area (euphoria, sedation, etc)
  • Milder nature may be underwhelming for some
  • Possibly average duration of effects


Yellow Borneo appears to be a mild and balanced counterpart to the energetic White Borneo.

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 might be less potent than 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.

    I have some yellow borneo from tauntonbaysoapcompany, it’s the perfect balance of relaxation and energy – plus it seems to have a longer duration of relief compared to, say, red bali (which is fantastic but I wish it lasted longer).

    I took ~3g of the yellow Borneo the day after i received it, and it really reminded me a lot of a red strain. Nice and relaxing, moderately euphoric, but not overly sedating.

    I burned 4g And I have a pretty high tolerance which I’m not proud of but I take it for chronic pain and depression/anxiety. I am soooooo happy I bought this. Just wanted to give a heads up to my fellow members here that this is fire 🔥 I would actually put it up there with my yellow Bentaungie. Pain 10/10 Anxiety 9/10 Depression 10/10 Euphoric 8/10! It is an incredible mood lifter 10/10 Happiness 10/10 lol

    The yellow borneo is pretty balanced on stimulation, but I’d say it leans a little more on the sedative side. I haven’t tried the bentaungie.

    The Yellow Borneo is one of the best I’ve ever had. It’s effects are in between a green and a red but with a lot of euphoria.

    I tried burning it a few times to get a good impression but to me its pretty weak. It’s mildly stimulating with little to no pain killing or euphoric effect. If anyone else has any thoughts feel free to chime in, but this is the last kilo I bought and it sucks to be stuck with this. Kinda wish I spent the extra money and got something else from them.

    gave that sense of well being and motivation we all love

    For me I would say it felt like a pink. Relaxing but also very energizing. Not sedating at all, s I guess white, with relaxation. Like I said I was expecting not much, but was very pleased, I would take a kilo of that sample any day.

    Lastly, I tip my hat to the yellow Borneo they sent just for ***** and giggle I suppose. Yellow strains are not always my cup of tea, but I can certainly see how it would be useful for tapering down on the amount one would burn. It makes for an absence of those symptoms we may note upon tapering down, and having few notable effects in terms of either sedation or stimulation. It is truly middle-of-the-road

    It hits me as an upper spectrum red. Good warmth and euphoria, an upbeat energy and makes me just really happy and content. Also turns me into a bit of a chatty Kathy, l normally am content within my own little mind space but this strain really makes me want to seek out conversation with others. Really great all around IMO.
