Although rare, Yellow Sunda’s potentially blissful and relaxing effects may catch the attention of both novice and experienced kratom users.

Yellow Sunda kratom icon

Yellow Sunda is a rare kratom strain that’s likely named after the Sundanese people on the Indonesian Isle of Java. To create Yellow Sunda, farmers supposedly dry White Sunda for an extended period in the sun. This process “cures” the leaves, altering their colour and effects.

Most users describe Yellow Sunda as strongly euphoric and somewhat sedating. It may elevate one’s mood and promote relaxation. Some users have reported that Yellow Sunda was effective at easing their feelings of anxiety and/or depression.

That said, Yellow Sunda doesn’t appear to be very stimulating or pain-relieving. Its duration could be slightly above average, with effects lasting up to 3.5-4 hours at moderate doses (2.5-5g). No evidence suggests that Yellow Sunda is more or less nauseating than other kratom 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.

😓 The Best Kratom Strains for Anxiety

    A personal favorite morning/afternoon strain that won’t put you to sleep AND is just stimulating enough to improve productivity without becoming unmanageable or “shaky”, which happens with some whites/greens or blends at higher doses(5G+).

    I would describe it as smooth, calming energy-

    Duration is slightly above average, but on-point for a yellow strain.

    Yellow Sudanese really helped lift my mood when I had a bout of depression last week.

    In my recent shipment from the ALWAYS wonderful Canopy Botanicals, I ordered a 25g sample of the Yellow Sunda in addition to my 250g of white Borneo. I’ve never had a “yellow” before, and I am happy to report a level of satisfaction that I have not encountered before! If only I had ordered a bigger bag. This strain has so much therapeutic value for me and feels like a 5 hour massage, it is a very balanced sensation and I couldn’t be happier with it! I highly recommend the Yellow Sunda to anyone who has not yet had the pleasure. Furthermore, it tastes…good!? There is an almost citrusy after taste rivaling that of lemon pledge which makes it very easy on the taste buds, it is by far the easiest strain on the taste buds. Thank you Canopy!!

    Holy yellow! This is my first yellow ever. I just got the yellow Sunda in the mail today from canopy and oh my, I’m in love. I’ve had a very stressful day and ended up not being able to eat since breakfast so my belly was nice and empty. It’s relieving my stress as well. I’m going to have to order a bigger size next time. I only got the 125 g. Im going to try and savor it.

    Edit: Also this is really strange. I’ve never not been able to sleep on any strain. Even any Whites. This strain is more stimulating for me than any strain i’ve ever had. Can’t sleep right now.
    I recieved a sample of yellow sunda with my Canopy order so i thought i’d do a review. Haven’t been dissapointed with any of their strains yet.
    This one was good but i would have to say is my least favorite out of every canopy strain i’ve had. I’ve heard many talk good about this strain but it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
    I find most yellows to be too mild for my taste. I like heavy hitters. The only yellow i’ve really ever loved is gaia’s bali gold. But yeah this yellow sunda was not euphoric enough for me.
    Still a decent burn nonetheless. I would have to rate it a 6.5/10

    The yellow sunda was actually really sedating to me, made me pass out early the other night.

    I tried the Yellow Sunda after a good sleep and it gave me lots of euphoric energy. Then I tried it on a different day in the evening and it was very relaxing (non drowsy). I didn’t know 1 strain could have 2 totally opposite effects.

    I debated on which to try first, but finally settled on the Yellow Sunda, and right now I’m sure glad I made that decision. I can honestly say I haven’t experienced such a pleasant burn for quite some time… To me, it’s a relaxing strain with a wonderful mood lift, while also being somewhat stimulating.. A way to describe it would be like if Red Sunda and White Thai were breaded together and made the perfect offspring, not too much stimulation or relaxation, just the perfect amounts of each balanced together beautifully, while the dare I say euphoria (mood lift) consumes you.

    I only got a sample of their Yellow Sunda, which I burned yesterday, but definitely will want to order that again, along with their Green Sumatra. Both are fantastic products for mood lifts and general feelings of well being. Their prices are fair too, given the quality of their product. Cheers!

    My Yellow Sunda came in today too. I took a three day break to get a fresh look on it. I burned 2g and felt a good energy and focus but also pretty relaxed too. The energy only lasted about an hour then I got real tired. I think it was too much because of my tolerance break so I will try again tomorrow with a lower dose.

    10. Mmerizon
    Burned my usual amount. Pretty potent I could have even taken a little less. 8/10 pain relief (nerve pain), anxiety relief 8/10. I want to shy away from other descriptors but it was very potent.
