Yellow Vietnam kratom is thought to be harvested as white veined leaf before undergoing a secondary curing process in the sun, altering its colour. It appears to be less similar to its highly-stimulating white-veined precursor, and more comparable to Red Vietnam.
The strain is perhaps best described as mildly euphoric and moderately stimulating, potentially providing an elevation in mood as well as slight invigoration. In addition, it seems to be somewhat sedating, with some users citing its ability to temporarily alleviate generalized anxiety. Reports indicate that it may be competently pain relieving.
Yellow Vietnam’s duration of effects may be above average for a moderately-sized dose (2.5-5g). We currently have no evidence to suggest that it is any more or less nauseating than other strains.
Nausea (higher is better)9.5
May offer a broad, balanced palette of effects
May elevate mood and provide ample relaxation
Potentially effective pain relief
May not excel in any one area (euphoria, sedation, etc)
Balanced nature may make it underwhelming for some
May be less sedating than other strains
Seemingly more analogous to Red Vietnam than White, Yellow Vietnam may offer a balanced onset, potentially improving mood and enhancing mental clarity.
