Papua Kratom: The Perfect Choice for Beginners

The Papua name may be unfamiliar to some as it is a newer and rarer kratom strain than most. It only reached the collective consciousness in or around 2017, but it’s been generating some steady buzz ever since.

Although most seasoned kratom users regularly seek out stronger products, resorting to murky kratom extracts or disreputable headshop blends, the noobs would do well to pay attention to the subtle attributes of this exotic curio.


Papua kratom has its origins in Papua New Guinea, hence the name. It is now grown in remote locations across Southeast Asia. The most ubiquitous variant of Papua Kratom is Green Vein Papua, a mild, middle-of-the-road Indo strain that is capable of instilling oodles of clean energy and waves of low-key euphoria.

The leaves of Papua Kratom have a complex cross-section of fine green veins and the finely ground kratom leaf powder has a pleasant and distinct aroma.

Those who have enjoyed Papua strains revere them for their baseline effects of tranquility and stimulation. This is the strain if you’re one of those cats who comes apart at the seams after burning too much kratom.

The wide range of Papua Kratom’s effects can include any or all of the following:

  • Mild stimulation
  • Soothing of the stomach
  • General analgesia
  • Improved mood
  • Sharpened focus
  • Sedation
  • Amplification of visual-spatial awareness


Kratom has not been approved for medicinal use by the FDA and is not intended for human consumption. As most responsible kratom vendors will tell you, they are offered online for research purposes only.

With this in mind, no dosage recommendations can be made in good conscience. However, popular opinion points to the following dosages as being appropriate for unlocking Papua Kratom’s purported benefits.

  • 2-3 grams for initial dosage with effects felt within 45 minutes to an hour
  • 3.5-4.5 grams for moderate effects
  • 5-6 grams for stronger effects

It is generally considered irresponsible for users to burn more than 12-15 grams of kratom powder at any given time. Chronic use is also ill-advised as it may lead to kratom tolerance, kratom addiction and/or liver damage.


Ultra Fine White Papua is the best choice for the active user who is seeking hours of clean energy, mood elevation and pain relief. This is the strain for those who like to hit it hard at the gym and not feel the burn after the fact.

White Vein Papua lifts you up without the comedown commonly associated with kratom hangover. It also induces light euphoria at certain dosages.


Red Papua Kratom is the right strain if you’re suffering from a sleep disorder or seeking out a Zen strain. This one induces calm, well-being and restful sleep. Expect sedation at moderate dosage levels.

Potency is about average with Red Vein Papua, but it’s got a longer duration than most with most users achieving threshold effects after only 25-30 minutes and enjoying reverberations of those effects for up to six hours thereafter.


If you’re a kratom beginner, Papua Kratom is the best choice to bust your cherry. You’ll likely experience all of the allure of other kratom strains without any intense effects, wobbles or freakout. Happy Kbombing, kids! ; )
