  • Can elevate mood and energy levels
  • Potentially effective pain relief


  • May not excel in any one area (euphoria, sedation, etc)

Yellow Vietnam may offer a balanced onset of mood elevation and energy.

Yellow Vietnam kratom icon

To create Yellow Vietnam kratom, farmers supposedly dry White Vietnam in the sun for an extended period of time. This process purportedly “cures” the strain, altering its color and effects.

Most users describe Yellow Vietnam kratom as mildly euphoric and somewhat stimulating. In low to moderate doses (1-5g), it can elevate one’s mood and energy levels. Like its red-veined cousin, Yellow Vietnam also appears to be somewhat sedating, especially at higher doses (5g+). Some users have reported that the strain is effective at temporarily relieving anxiety and pain.

Yellow Vietnam’s duration of effects could be longer-than-average at moderate doses (2.5-5g). There’s no evidence suggesting that it is any 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 these strains might differ from the average user.


Yellow Vietnam’s strain name implies that the strain is grown in Vietnam. However, because ASEAN actively prohibits kratom trade throughout Vietnam, the strain is most likely imported from Indonesia.

    I already posted earlier about KS’s yellow strain – but I would like to repeat once more and confirm how amazing it is. For me it totally works as red – but somehow even better – I think it’s that mellow kind of energy I like (for example – it doesn’t kick me as red Bali), plus it helps that taste is not bad at all. Also, their customer service is very good – and packages/bags are fancy too:). PS. Don’t forget to check out their elephant – it’s one the best strains I ever tried!

    Great all the way around. Right in the middle IME. Not sleepy or sedating. Good legs. Decent mood and pain effects.

    You should definitely get it. Along with Yellow Thai. The Thai is a little more relaxing than the Vietnam, but overall they are both pretty centered as far as effects. Good euphoria, good mood enhancement, not tiring or stimulating, and very enjoyable.

    It’s one of my favorites, it mostly just eases anxiety and lifts my mood.

    Hands down my fav. Smooth happy focus. The best way to describe it. As someone who deals with chronic pain it’s been my go to after trying many other types. Superb pain relief.

    I most recently got KratomsourceUSA yellow Vietnam and it’s def good, although I would say more on a relaxed/pain reliever side of the spectrum, not that it will easily put you out. It also does seem to uplift the spirit a little bit. Overall I’m happy with it. I hope I have time to order at least one other kind, as someone who’s used to mixing them all up, sticking to only yellow lately has kind of taken away from what I originally found unique about it.

    I’ve now had two runs with the stuff and I have to say that I’m actually quite impressed. Initially I thought it was going to be the same experience: I wasn’t feeling much of anything 45 minutes after trying it out. However, it slowly creeped up on me and continued to get better with time. By around the hour and a half mark, I was really happy with the kratom. This is a really nice blend of good mood and relaxation without being sedating. If I had to sum it up, it’s very much a motivating strain without feeling speedy. If you haven’t had much luck with yellow strains in the past, I absolutely recommend giving this a go. I’ve also found that it worked a bit better the second time around for reasons I’m unsure of. While I don’t think this will replace my love for red hulu and reds in general, it’s a very nice change of pace and I’m incredibly impressed.

    I was really happy with their yellow also. Not as motivating as other stains but it helps with my chronic pain a lot more. I had to step down my dose with their green MD because it’s a lot stronger than what I’m used to getting. Canopy ran out so i guess i got lucky in that respect. Over all I’m sticking with this vendor as well as recommending it to some of my irl friends who are considering making the switch from their pain pills to kratom.

    I highly suggest buying a sample before going big with a large order. I bought a kilo of Yellow Vietnam from KSUSA and in my first dosage of just 2g I thought I found the holy grail! I got 5 hours of complete bliss with focus, euphoria and frankly the best experience I ever had with any strain.

    Its mellow lol kinda like a weaker red with euphoria and energy. I love mixing yellows with reds and whites it’s the perfect blend
