Maybe you think of kratom strains like you think of the people you’ve hooked up with. Like, they’re all the same, give or take. Well, just because you have a “type” doesn’t mean that they’re all identical. Just like prospective dates, kratom strains may look, smell or taste interchangeable, but that doesn’t mean that they are indistinguishable.
In the case of Malaysian strains, there are actually some pretty dramatic differences. For instance, Super Green Malay is known as the signature strain for those seeking increased sociability. It’s become a much-coveted strain among college students who are looking to break out of their shells. By contrast, Red Malay makes for a more insular experience, one that induces extreme relaxation.
This is just the tip of the proverbial ice berg when it comes to the differences between each Malay strain. Here’s an exploded view of each strain. As you’ll see, we weigh the pros and cons of each and explore their similarities as well as their distinctive effects.
Let’s get down to it!

Those who have been fortunate enough to burn Red Malay can attest to its utility as an anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) herb. This potent strain is known to reduce stress and alleviate anxiety while producing a sense of optimism and general well-being.
What’s more, it actually energizes users while improving their overall mood. It has been brewed as a tea to help combat insomnia and is said to offer mild euphoria as well. Those who are sensitive to botanicals appreciate its moderate effects at reasonable doses with many pointing to it as one of the more well-balanced kratom strains due to its lack of substantial sedation or stimulation.
In addition to the aforementioned benefits in the area of sociability and reduced inhibition, Super Green Malay is renowned for its ability to enhance one’s immune system with its antioxidants. As with Red Malay, Super Green Malay provides a clean energy boost as it soothes one’s stomach with its analgesic properties.
Super Green Malay is widely considered one of the “zen strains” because of the calm it yields. Users experience a notable sense of serenity and oneness with the universe. So, it’s got that going for it…which is good.
White Malay Kratom is very effective in the area of “brain fog” and mood disorders. Those who have burned White Malay say that it improves both mood and focus. Unlike the other strains listed here, White Malay delivers intense stimulation at certain dosages.
White Malay may also help to regulate circadian rhythm, ensuring that users will get a good night’s sleep and feel rested in the morning. As with Red Malay, it also contains anxiolytic properties that help to alleviate the symptoms associated with depression and panic disorders.

Over on Reddit, one user spoke of Kraydo Red Malay, calling it the best strain they’d tried in months. In the post, u/Imminent_Beanpole writes, “It broke clean through my cold symptoms like even the most potent 70HM batches like Green Papuas and Green Kalsel have been unable to do…Red Malay is something special.”
This sentiment was echoed by other Redditors who said that it’s pretty euphoric and that it provides a good mood lift. But elsewhere a user called it a “lightweight version of Green Malay.”
One user called Super Green Malay a good daytime strain, suggesting that it may be too stimulating for late night burning. This is no doubt due to its energizing properties. However, another user suggested that it may be ineffective for certain individuals, saying, “I’ve only had this strain burn for me a few times when I first started and now I don’t get anything…I guess this one isn’t for me.”
One user said that White Malay is their favorite strain, saying that it tends to be less jittery than other strains. Conversely, another user responded to this post, saying, “real jittery wasn’t a fan at all.”
Red Malay is a terrific choice if you’re grappling with raw nerves or shyness, but it ain’t exactly a doozy if you’re looking for stronger results. If you’re in the market for a strain that can go toe to toe with Maeng Da and UEI, Super Green Malay gives those two popular kratom products a run for their money.
Super Green Malay is great for profound effects and a longer duration, but White Malay may be the right choice if you’re looking for the best of both worlds. Known chiefly for its pain-relieving potential, White Malay Kratom offers all of the mood lifting qualities of Red and Green Malay as well as the increased focus and energy typical of both strains.
Unlike the other strains in the Malay family, White Malay Kratom delivers speedy results as it goes after receptors immediately after burning it. Most users report experiencing effects within minutes of drinking kratom tea.
The only downside to these and other kratom strains is the potential side effects which may occur at larger dosage levels. These adverse effects may include any or all of the following:
Kratom or Mitragyna speciosa (if you’re not into the whole brevity thing) is available in many different strains and at varying levels of potency. No two strains are ever exactly the same and effects tend to vary depending upon dosage, body type and more. If you’re not sure about what you want out of a strain, it’s a good idea to get your hands on some samplers of each. Happy Kbombing, kids! ; )
