Red Malaysian is one of our newest red kratom powder strains available for retail. We have not offered Red Malaysian kratom for retail previously. Some of our wholesale clients do really well with this particular variety. So we are now offering it as part of our Collection. Red Malaysian kratom powder is made from the finely powdered leaves of red-veined kratom. Red-veined kratom leaves are usually older than their lighter colored counterparts. That means they have been on the plant longer. More intense light can also make the veins turn red more easily. The vein color can affect the alkaloids profile in the leaf even though there is no direct correlation to higher overall alkaloid content with any specific vein color. Once harvested, leaves are sorted for vein color. The genetics of Malaysian kratom may be derived from Malaysia. But with kratom being banned in Malaysia, the Malaysian kratom that makes its way to the U.S. is usually collected from the islands and coastal areas that are near the Malaysian border. There is no direct supply that is distributed through Malaysia.
