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.

- Can elevate mood and energy levels
- Potentially effective pain relief
- May not excel in any one area (euphoria, sedation, etc)
- Balanced nature may make it underwhelming for some
- Potentially less sedating than other strains
