So now you know the term Gold doesn’t refer to the leaf vein coloration, it’s time to read the complete guide on why Gold Kratom is a rare but popular strain and what the potential benefits are!

What is Gold kratom / where does it come from?
If you’re up for an adventure, then get your kayak ready for a wild ride! Our Bali Gold is wild-harvested from the banks of the Kapuas River in Indonesia. A marshy region rich in tropical forests that produce some of the best Kratom leaves
But to be clear, there are no actual Gold Kratom trees growing in the wild, nor are there red, green, or white ones, for that matter. The color refers to the time of harvest and the drying process that follows.
So, if Gold Kratom is in fact a combination of other strains and colors, let’s take a quick look at their profiles.
White Vein Kratom – White Veins are a sign of barely ripe leaves. These leaves are collected in haste and dried indoors, away from the elements. The rush process allows for minimal oxidation/aerobic fermentation, which helps maintain the alkaloid profile in a way that’s similar to how Mitragyna speciosa naturally synthesizes it.
Green Vein Kratom is characterized by the deep green color of the leaf veins. Unlike white, Green Kratom comes from either patience or laziness, as it is harvested a bit later yet still dried indoors. In terms of effects, some strains are more stimulating, while others are more sedative.
Red Vein Kratom is harvested from mature trees, and the leaves are washed and dried in the sun or a well-ventilated area. The dried leaves are then fermented for several days to several weeks to enhance the alkaloid profile and then dried again to prepare them for packaging and distribution.
Read on for a deep look at our Gold Kratom blends that strike the golden medium for potential health and wellness benefits.
Mount Kratom Gold Kratom - Strains, Types, and Varieties
Some of the most common types of gold kratom include Gold Maeng Da, Gold Bali, Gold Indo, Gold Malay, Gold Thai, Gold Kali, Gold Bentuangie, and more. Here at Mount Kratom we don’t have all of those and instead focus on the best Gold Kratom that has the most consistent results.
Bali Gold Kratom – Available in capsules and powder. Our Bali Gold is typically sun-dried over a longer period, which increases 7-hydroxymitragynine levels, the alkaloid responsible for its analgesic qualities.
Gold Bali is perfect for those who want the benefits of a red strain with a little extra punch in terms of well-being and mood enhancement. Many users have also reported longer-lasting effects with Gold Bali Kratom.
Wild Gold Maeng Da Kratom – Created by blending a red vein strain and a white vein strain and uses a specialized drying process that enhances the alkaloid profile of the leaves. Gold Maeng Da is known for its energizing and euphoric effects.
Generally speaking, users often rate the outcome as something between red strain kratom and white strains. That’s why Gold Maeng Da can give you the energizing effects of white kratom but also the relaxing outcome of red vein kratom. A good combo for those looking for the best of both worlds.
What is the Alkaloid content in Gold Kratom?
Like digging in a goldmine or panning for gold in a river you never know how many nuggets you might find. The same goes for the amount of alkaloids in gold kratom. Depending on various factors such as the type of kratom, how and when it was harvested and processed, and the age and maturity of the leaves can all affect the alkaloid levels! This means that the effects of gold kratom can vary from person to person and even from batch to batch.
Having said that we do know that the primary alkaloids found in gold kratom are mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. These two compounds are present in varying concentrations in different kratom strains and responsible for many of the effects associated with kratom use. Additionally every batch we sell on our site is lab tested to ensure the most consistent benefits.
Benefits of Gold Kratom + Potential Side Effects
Gold kratom is known for its unique blend of effects that can provide a variety of wellness and health benefits. While the specific benefits may vary depending on the individual strain and dosage, here are some of the most commonly reported benefits of gold kratom:
Muscle Tension Relief – Feeling Charlie horse? Suffering from aches and pains? Gold kratom has been reported to have muscle-relaxing properties. Which makes Gold the WINNING choice for athletes or anyone dealing with muscle stiffness or soreness.
Discomfort Relief – Many users turn to gold kratom for its natural pain-relieving properties. It can be particularly effective at reducing mild to moderate pain, including headaches, and other conditions related to injury. We like to say Gold provides re-leaf!
Relax and Rejuvenate – The right dose of our Bali Gold Kratom strain can help you relax and increase your sense of wellbeing and potentially decrease stress. Additionally, Gold Bali derived from red vein strains that undergo a longer drying time, means that the effects are more euphoric than actual red kratom. Great for those who appreciate a little more intensity.
Improved Mood – Not all of us are lucky enough to wake up full of beans every morning. A little help can go a long way in getting us out of bed and into our day with smiles on our faces. Bali Gold is an excellent strain for just that if you want a little natural perk up without the crash later.
