A relative newcomer to the botanical marketplace, Green Cambodian is a rare kratom strain that is very much in-demand due to its limited availability and distinguishing alkaloid profile. A truly well-rounded kratom variant, this exotic powder is something that most any kratom user will appreciate.
Here is everything you need to know about Green Cambodian, its history and its many purported effects. Let’s jump into it!

Hailing from the remote mountains of Cambodia where the sandy surface textures of its mineral-rich soil contribute to the sinewy nature of its live kratom plants. Cambodian kratom trees can grow to as much as 100 feet in height.
The dark pastel green color of Cambodian kratom leaf’s veins suggest that this baby is strong and sure enough, it really is! The Green Cambodian strain is both potent and well-balanced, hailing from untrammeled jungles whose plant life are considered sacrosanct by the natives.
Green Cambodian kratom’s mind-altering aroma has led to it being regarded as a Shamanistic herb, one that can free the mind and emancipate the human spirit. While kratom is not approved for medicinal use by the FDA, users have attested to its value as an Ayurvedic herb.
In fact, Green Cambodian is widely considered one of the best green strains on the market. It has even landed on our list of the best kratom strains.
Green Cambodian is not approved for medicinal use by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) and is not considered fit for human consumption in the United States. Nevertheless, it remains largely unregulated in most US states and can be purchased as an aromatic botanical.
Those who have burned kratom have found it to be beneficial in the following areas:
Green Cambodian’s purported effects include improved mood, clean boost, increased motivation, pleasant disposition, improved sociability, restful sleep and a general sense of well-being.
Due to kratom’s status with the FDA, no official instructions can be offered for usage. However, those with experience in the kratom community have suggested the following as a general dosage guide:
There are 2.5 grams of Green Cambodian kratom in a teaspoon and 7.5 grams in a tablespoon. The consensus among most seasoned kratom users is that anything more than 10-12 grams is an extreme dose that should be avoided, especially by beginners.
Burning kratom frequently or over the long term is ill-advised as it may lead to kratom hangover, kratom tolerance and/or kratom addiction. Symptoms of kratom withdrawal include restless legs, sweats, sleeplessness, agitation, anxiety and heart palpitations.
Speaking of undesirable effects, Green Cambodian is like all other kratom strains when it comes to potential adverse effects. These effects may include dry mouth, dilated pupils, nausea, confusion, blurred vision, agitation, increased blood pressure, vomiting, diarrhea or insomnia.
Long-term kratom use is associated with an increased chance of liver damage or even liver failure. This is just one of the many reasons why chronic use is not a good idea.
Some have questioned claims of Green Cambodian being stronger than Maeng Da and other popular strains. One user wrote, “It was strong yes. The strongest? Im not sure i only had a 9g sample and id have to do further research before saying that. Buttttt it is very very strong.”
Although Kratom Central has talked about the effort to which they went to confirm the legitimacy of Cambodian kratom, investing five weeks of their time to venture through the jungles of Cambodia to find kratom trees and negotiate a sale with local villagers.
They write: “Samples of the Cambodian Kratom were sent to the laboratory and it turns out that this super green Cambodian kratom is as high in Alkaloid content as Maeng Da. It makes sense, because the trees are in soils that are very rich with nutrients.”
Much of the skepticism surrounding Green Cambodian revolves around the fact that Cambodians are unaware of kratom’s supposed health benefits. Unlike the natives of Indonesia, they have no cultural history with the plant.
Of course, everyone is different and many have attested to its powerful attributes. One user said, “I bought my morning coffee at the gas station and mixed in about 5gs of the kratom. About 45 minutes later I noticed my mood was much better than it usually is at 9 in the morning and I had a great talk with my coworker…
“My vision got blurry on and off for like the first 15 minutes(kratom eyes). I also had a lot more energy with no jitteriness at all. This lasted my entire 6 hour shift though it was definitely starting to wear off by the end. Overall this seems like a pretty well rounded strain with improved mood and energy…”
Like my experience with Late Cambrian, my initial exposure to Green Cambodian occurred in the men’s restroom at Brooklyn’s premier underground music venue The Wick. A friend from the industry gave me a sample of PA Botanicals’ Cambodian kratom powder and I horked all six grams with a Bud Light Lime before I got to the show.
When I hit the bathroom, the effects came over me and I began to throb like an amplifier as I took a leak. Washing my hands, I was acutely aware of the coolness of the water running over and between my fingers.
When I got back to the main room and the band was in full swing, I sang along for the first time in a long time, feeling free of inhibitions and ready to chat up fellow music fans. My heart was beating a bit too fast, but no chest pains or jitters, just clean energy and a chill feeling like I could vibe out all night.
Green Cambodian’s effects lasted for about five hours after which I was able to settle down for bed and drift off without any disruption or disordered thinking. I woke up feeling rejuvenated and ready to start my morning routine.
