Named after the signature horned tips of its leaves, Yellow Horn kratom allegedly begins as white leaf and undergoes further “curing” in sunlight, altering its effects profile as well as its color.
This may explain the similarities between Yellow Horn and other white strains, as its profile has generally been described as very euphoric and stimulating. Users commonly cite an increase in mood, alleviation of depressive feelings, as well as increased motivation and focus. In addition, the strain may provide moderate pain relief.
However, users may not find Yellow Horn to be as stimulating/energizing as other white strains. In addition, the average duration of effects seems to be average (~2.5 hours for a medium 2-3g dose). This may result in an underwhelming experience for some. For others, Yellow Horn may serve well as a daytime/functional strain by offering a relatively non-intrusive boost to focus and mood.
Current evidence would suggest that this strain is no more or less nauseating than other strains.
Nausea (higher is better)9.5
May provide an increase in mood, energy, and focus
Possibly stimulating without causing anxiety or restlessness
May subdue depressive feelings, anxiety, pain
Potentially short-lived effects
May not provide the energy of other strains
A generous balance of potential euphoria and stimulation may elevate mood, focus, and productivity, but Yellow Horn's more subdued nature may not pack the energizing punch of other strains.
