Green Malay Kratom
Due to its potency, Green Malay is one of the best green strains on the market.

I suggest Green Malay if you suffer from stress, anxiety, depression or want to treat pain during the day.
Green Malay is without a doubt one of the most popular and potent green strains on the market. It’s commonly used to treat a wide variety of symptoms such as pain and anxiety.

What is Green Malay Kratom?
Green Malay is a unique kratom strain originating from, you guessed it, Malaysia in Southeast Asia. Due to its ideal growing environment, Malaysia is responsible for producing many of the world’s best strains, one of which is Green Malay.
Natives of Southeast Asia have been using this magnificent strain for centuries, and it’s not hard to see why. After personally trying Green Malay, I can undoubtedly say it’s among the most potent strains I’ve ever used.
Its high potency level clearly explains why it boasts the largest number of Google searches, only to be rivaled by its famous counterpart, Green Maeng Da. More on comparing the two in the FAQ section.
Malay kratom is grown in 3 different colors, red, white, and green, each contributing a unique set of effects and uses.
Red Malay tends to be relaxing, White Malay is the most stimulating, and Green Malay is a hybrid mix of red and white. Green Malay offers the best of both worlds, which I’ll go over in the next section.
The color of the strain is designated by the color of the veins on the kratom leaves. In Green Malay’s case, the plant is harvested once the veins turn green.
Most kratom leaves tend to range in size, from 1-8 inches, and are dark green in color. The larger the leaf the more alkaloids it contains and therefore, more profit can be expected.
Green Malay is known to have larger leaves than other strains, which is why it’s highly sought after by kratom suppliers and not just consumers.
The alkaloids responsible for Green Malay’s amazing medicinal benefits are Mitragynine and 7-Hydroximitragynine.
These alkaloids bind to the opioid receptors (mu & delta) in the brain and consequently produce many of the same medicinal benefits as opioid drugs without the horrible side effects and detrimental health damage.

Kratom alkaloids are not tested for in drug tests. You will NOT fail a drug test for using kratom.
Only drug tests from law enforcement agencies, such as the 10-panel drug test, may detect metabolites found in kratom.
Green Malay Effects & What It’s Used For
Part of the reason why Green Malay is so popular is not only because it produces potent effects, but also because it can be used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions and symptoms.
Many people have used Green Malay to successfully replace their pharmaceutical drugs and/or addictions.
However, please speak to a licensed physician if you plan to do the same.
The following table shows how potent each effects is, with 10 being very potent and 1 very weak.
|Relaxation||Pain Relief||Energy||Euphoria||Appetite Suppression|
Let’s go over each effect and how it can be properly utilized.
Green Malay’s amazing relaxation effects are both mental and physical. After consuming it, you will notice the tension in your body melt away and the negative thoughts in your mind come to a screeching halt.
The relaxation effect can best be described as the feeling you get after meditating or the peace you obtain once you realize a very bad problem has been solved or gone away.
However, it’s not the same relaxation produced by red strains. It’s not sedative. Quite the contrary, it’s well balanced with a surge of energy.
Green Malay’s relaxation property can be used to mitigate the following conditions:
- Social anxiety
- Opioid addiction
The relaxation can be expected to last about 3-5 hours.
Based on my research, Green Malay’s pain relieving properties seem to be among the most popular reasons people use this strain.
As previously stated, the alkaloids contained in the leaves bind to opioid receptors in our brain and produce very opioid-like effects, such as pain relief.
This pain relief can be used to treat a wide variety of pains and discomforts ranging from minor aches to chronic pain and headaches.
The increase in blood flow that Green Malay produces can also be very effective for treating chronic inflammation.
If pain relief is your primary objective, I highly recommend Green Malay for daytime use, as this strain is not sedative when used correctly.
Red strains are the most commonly used strains for treating pain, but due to their heavy sedation, I only recommend taking them at night.
Here is a long list of medical conditions that have been successfully treated with Green Malay.
- Chemotherapy pain
- Back pain
- Physical trauma
- Muscle soreness
- Body aches
The pain relief can be expected to last roughly 3-5 hours.
Green Malay’s energy boost is much more gradual and balanced than the overwhelming energy obtained from caffeinated beverages such as coffee or energy drinks.
You also don’t have to worry about the caffeine crash.
I clearly remember taking Green Malay late one night because I was sleep deprived but still had many tasks to complete before calling it a day.
Within a few minutes, my drowsiness had disappeared without me becoming aware of it, and I felt as if I had never been sleep deprived in the first place. That’s how I can best describe Green Malay’s energy boost.
I recommend using Green Malay’s energy boost during the day to treat:
- Long strenuous tasks (physical or mental)
- Chronic fatigue
- Pick me up
Green Malay’s energy boost can last anywhere from 1-3 hours.
Please note, the size of the dose to acquire an energy boost is smaller than YOUR average dose, as smaller doses tend to be more sedative. This goes for all strains.
For example, if you normally take 3 grams of kratom, to obtain an energy boost, you should take 2 grams.
Being able to induce a euphoria at your will is one of the most powerful tools you can use to radically transform your life.
The world’s best life coach, Tony Robbins, insists that the ability to instantly change your emotional state can mean the difference between success and a meaningful life or the complete opposite.
Luckily for us, Green Malay is known for producing very potent euphorias in a matter of minutes.
The feeling can best be described by a surge of optimism and joy, which inevitably becomes a confidence boost. Hence, the reason people become more social.
All of these positive emotions literally change your state, and can be used to treat:
- Social Anxiety
- Chronic or temporary stress
- Inability to focus
- Lack of motivation
- Opioid addiction
- Mood swings
If you reflect on the many times you’ve procrastinated, it probably because you lacked motivation. You weren’t in the right state.
Inducing a euphoria and changing your state makes you WANT to tackle the project.
Many strains only provide relaxation that take the edge off, but Green Malay’s euphoric properties step it up to the next level.
Unfortunately, the euphoria only lasts about thirty minutes, but the mood boost lingers on for up to 2 hours.
One of the lesser known benefits of Green Malay is its ability to suppress hunger. If you have a hard time cutting back on the amount of calories you’re consuming, Green Malay may be the perfect solution.
Depending on how you take Green Malay, it can take about 10-15 minutes before any sensations of hunger completely dissipate.
The appetite suppression can be used to help with:
- Binge Eating Disorder (BED)
- Losing weight
The appetite suppression can last for 2-5 hours.
How to Take Green Malay
There are many ways to take Green Malay, but the most popular include:
- Toss and Wash
- Kratom Tea
These ways of taking kratom will each require a different dose, which I’ll go over in the next section.
Although all 3 utilize Green Malay kratom powder and have the potential to produce potent results, their potency will slightly vary.
How you choose to take Green Malay will ultimately be decided by convenience and how fast you want to experience its effects.
Let’s start with the first.
Toss And Wash
Best 4 Potent & Immediate Effects
Green Malay Toss & Wash
This is my favorite way of taking Green Malay because it can be consumed very quickly, produces results in a matter of minutes, and the effects pack more of a punch than kratom tea or capsules.
To perform the toss and wash, simply “toss” Green Malay powder into your mouth, drink water, swirl the powder and water in your mouth, and swallow or “wash” it down.
I can assure you it’s more unpleasant than it sounds. The powder is extremely bitter and the texture doesn’t exactly help, which is why most people tend to avoid this way of taking kratom.
However, if you can get past all the unpleasantness, you’ll be rewarded with fast and potent effects.

You should notice the initial effects in about 5-10 minutes after taking the powder, and total time of 3-5 hours.
Tip: Use cold water to minimize the bitter taste.
- Quick consumption
- Potent results
- Fast acting effects
- Bitter taste & harsh texture
- Can get messy
Green Malay Kratom Capsules
Best For Conveniency & Taste
Green Malay Capsules
Green Malay capsules are perfect for those who want to avoid the bitter taste of powder and tea. They’re also super convenient and portable.
Each capsule is made with a pharmaceutical grade vegetable case to avoid allergic reactions, and holds 0.7 grams of powder.
No silicone content is used to make the capsules.
Keep in mind, it takes roughly 30-45 minutes to begin feeling the effects, and they last about 3-5 hours.
If you need something for instant relief, I suggest you use the toss and wash instead.
- Quick consumption
- No powder messes
- No harsh tastes
- Potent effects
- Higher cost
- Delayed effects
Green Malay Kratom Tea
Best For Non Busy People
Green Malay Tea
Preparing tea is an alternative to the toss and wash.
Simply pour boiling water into a container with kratom powder or leaves and filter the powder or leaves.
Never boil water with kratom powder or leaves as this will destroy the alkaloids responsible for the medicinal effects.
Kratom tea is fast acting, roughly 5-10 minutes to feel the initial effects and about 3-5 hours of amazing relief and energy.
The downside is the time it takes to prepare the tea, which is about 25 minutes, and the bitter flavor. You can improve the taste by adding honey, but not by much.
I suggest Green Malay tea for people who don’t have busy schedules, don’t mind bitter flavors, and enjoy drinking tea.
- Fast acting
- Bitter taste
- Lengthy preparation time
- Requires more powder (higher cost)

How to Find Your Green Malay Dosage
Unfortunately, I keep coming across other blogs suggesting the same dose for all people. They’ll say something like, take 3-5 grams if you want to obtain anxiety relief.
However, this is not only misleading, but also dangerous. 5 grams may be fine for some people, but can trigger negative side effects in others, such as the notorious nauseous kratom headache.
Therefore, the safest approach to finding a dose that works for you is to experiment. If you already use kratom, stick to your average dose when using Green Malay.
Regardless of how you decide to take Green Malay, make sure you follow these few simple rules.
- Stick to only one way of taking Green Malay until you find your ideal dose.
- Don’t take kratom twice in the same day while you’re experimenting with dosages, as the effects will be much weaker the second time.
- Take Green Malay at least two hours after your last meal.
Dosages will vary with each method of taking kratom. For example, 5 grams of powder taken via the toss and wash will produce more potent effects than 5 grams prepared as a tea.
Now that you’ve decided how to take Green Malay, let me show you step by step how to find your perfect dose, but first, keep in mind the following factors all play a role in determining your dosage.
Weight: Like alcohol and many other substances, weight plays a crucial role. The more you weigh, the more Green Malay you will have to take.
Gender: Generally speaking, men have to take more kratom than women, even if both weigh the same. However, there are exceptions to every rule.
Tolerance: Some people are naturally more tolerant to kratom than others, regardless of whether they’ve used kratom or not. For example, it’s very possible for two women weighing the same to require different doses.
Food: The more food you have in your system, the weaker Green Malay’s effects will be.
Toss & Wash Dose
To figure out how much powder to take for the toss and wash, I recommend starting with a low dose of 2 grams for people under 200 pounds and 3 grams for those who weigh 200 pounds or more.
Wait at least 30 minutes. If you experienced your desired effects, this is now your dose.
If you felt like the effects were weak or you didn’t experience any effects whatsoever, increase the dose by adding one gram the following day.
Repeat this process of adding a gram a day until you acquire the benefits you’re looking for.
The process of figuring out your Green Malay capsule dose is very similar to the toss and wash.
Start with a low dose of 3 capsules if you’re under 200 pounds or 4 capsules if you’re 200 pounds or heavier.
Wait at least one hour and thirty minutes. If you experienced your desired effects, this is your dose.

If you felt like the effects were weak or nonexistent, increase the dose by adding one capsule the following day. For example, if you took 3 capsules, take 4 the following day.
Repeat this process of adding a capsule a day until you obtain the effects you’re looking for.
Kratom Tea Dose
Kratom tea is going to require a bit more powder than the toss and wash to produce effects with the same level of potency.
Best For Potency
You can also use leaves to make kratom tea.
If you grind the leaves into a powder with a coffee grinder, you’ll obtain more potent results than using powder purchased from a vendor. You can also use the grinded powder for the toss & wash.
Kratom Krush doesn’t specifically have Green Malay leaves, but they do have green crushed leaves that are just as, if not more potent, than Green Malay.
I suggest starting with 4 grams if you’re under 200 pounds or 6 grams if you’re 200 pounds or heavier.
Remember to wait at least 30-60 minutes before drinking to allow the hot water to extract the alkaloids.
After drinking the tea, wait another 30-60 minutes to experience Green Malay’s medicinal benefits.
If you felt like the effects were weak or nonexistent, add 1 gram of powder or leaves to your dose the following day.
Repeat this process of adding a gram a day until you obtain your desired effects.
When Should I Increase My Dose?
If you feel like your regular dose is no longer effective, increase it via the process of adding 1 gram or 1 capsule to your dose.
Once you’ve gotten close to doubling your dose you should take a tolerance break to avoid consuming large quantities of Green Malay.
I suggest refraining from using kratom for at least one month during your tolerance break.
How to Prevent Green Malay Negative Side Effects
The primary reason people experience negative side effects when taking Green Malay is due to taking large doses that their body can’t tolerate.
Technically speaking, they’re “overdosing” but I refrain from using that word because most of the time Green Malay’s side effects consist of a non-fatal nauseous headache.
Depending on how large of a dose you took, the headache can be mild or to the point of throwing up.
The best way to avoid negative side effects is to slowly increase your dose (if necessary) on a daily basis until you obtain your desired effects, just like I explained in the previous section.
I’ve experienced the headache myself many times, but luckily it goes away on it’s own in about 45 minutes.
If you’re new to kratom and accidentally consume too much, you’re more likely to experience a headache because you haven’t built up a tolerance, especially if you take it twice in the same day.
There’s many claims regarding kratom and hallucinations, but I’ve yet to meet a person or find a testimonial. I’ve been using kratom for years and so have many of my readers, yet not a single person has ever hallucinated.
Some people experience psychedelic tendencies, such as colors becoming more vibrant, but not full blown hallucinations.
Another negative side effect is getting high, but this high is different than a weed high. The time’s I’ve accidentally gotten high I was still mentally in control, but really dizzy. Time did not slow down, nor did I feel like laughing.
Needless to say, it was far from enjoyable, and the cause was, once again, taking a large dose.
Be wise with your dosages, follow the guidelines I’ve set for you above, and you’ll have only great experiences with Green Malay.
Super Green Malay, Is it Just a Marketing Gimmick?
I get this question all the time, so I decided to run a little experiment to get my answer.
After concluding my research online, purchased one of the best and most popular Super Green Malay powder brands, Mitragaia, and compared it to Kratom Krush’s regular Green Malay strain (they don’t offer Super Green Malay).
Here’s what I found:
I took both strains via the toss and wash first thing in the morning on an empty stomach and on different days to decrease the amount of influence from other factors such as food.
I took my regular dose for each strain, 5 grams.
I carried out the experiment twice. In other words I took each strain twice on a different days on an empty stomach.
My ultimate conclusion? Aside from a sweet lemon type smell from Super Green Malay, I couldn’t tell the difference.
Kratom Krush’s regular Green Malay seemed to match the same effects as Mitragaia’s Super Green Malay.
I’m not trying to bash on Mitragaia, as every person can have unique experiences.
Read More: “The Best 2 in 1 Kratom Strain For Sleep & Pain“
It’s very possible that Mitragaia’s regular Green Malay is slightly less potent than their super version, or maybe I purchased from a weaker batch, which is not at all uncommon with all kratom vendors.
It’s also possible that Kratom Krush’s Green Malay is the same as all Super Green Malays, they just happened to leave out the word, super.
At the end of the day, this was my personal experience, but I figured it would help you gain some clarity about which vendor is right for you.
However, one thing I can say for sure is that Kratom Krush’s Green Maeng Da undoubtedly surpasses both Green Malays.
Green Malay Kratom Reddit Opinions
Although everyone tends to have slightly different experiences with each strain, I’m happy to say that Green Malay has an overwhelmingly large number of positive Reddit reviews.
Reddit user, NicoRealNSE offers positive feedback regarding the euphoria and pain relief, while the people in the comments seem to agree.
Amambamama writes about using Green Malay for the first time and absolutely loving it. He/she has used Green Maeng Da in the past, and claims it’s the only other strain that provided satisfactory results.
Last but not least, four-fourty-four tried Green Malay capsules and claims he had an amazing and motivated shift at work. I can personally attest to using Green Malay for work as well, especially for writing these posts.
Best Place to Buy Green Malay
I look for 4 crucial factors before partnering with a company and referring them to my readers: transparency, an amazing guarantee, superb customer service, and multiple shipping options.

Can I mix Green Malay With Other Strains?
Yes, you can mix Green Malay with any other strain to obtain the best of both worlds.
Does Green Malay Get You High
Yes, Green Malay can get you high if taken in large doses.
Green Malay vs Green Maeng Da
I get this question pretty frequently because both strains are top notch. From my experience, both strains are equal in all effects with the exception of the euphoria.
Kratom Krush’s Green Maeng Da seems to be slightly more euphoric than their Green Malay. It’s not a huge difference but it’s noticeable.
However, this may not be the case with different vendors. Some kratom vendor’s Green Malay may be more euphoric than Green Maeng Da.
Read More: Green Malay Kratom vs Green Maeng Da
Green Malay vs White Maeng Da
White Maeng Da is significantly more energizing than Green Malay.
However, don’t expect too much of the other benefits. I only suggest White Maeng Da if your sole purpose is to acquire an energy boost.
Green Malay vs Red Bali
Red Bali is sedative, relaxing but not euphoric, and slightly more pain relieving than Green Malay. If your goal is pain relief, use Red Bali at night and Green Malay during the day.
If you’re not trying to induce sleep, you’re probably better off with just Green Malay.
Green Borneo vs Green Malay
Both Green Malay and Green Borneo produce the exact same effects. The only difference is Green Malay’s higher potency.
Best Alternative Strain to Avoid Stagnant Strain
If you want to avoid building a really high tolerance to Green Malay, you can rotate it with Green Maeng Da on a weekly basis. One week you use Green Malay, and the next you take Green Maeng Da.
