Allow me to explain literally everything you need to know about Yellow Borneo in this guide to help you decide whether this strain is for you.
What Is Yellow Borneo Kratom?
The tree grows in the tropical regions of Southeast Asia in countries like Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia, where the equatorial climate is more than ideal for cultivation.
Kratom can be found in four colors, including:
4. Yellow / gold
Oddly enough, there is much controversy online regarding how yellow strains are created.
Some people believe they are simply red strains which have gone through a different fermentation process, while others believe they are hybrid mixes of the other 3 strains.
No one knows for sure, but if you were to ask me, I'd go with the latter option.
What Does Yellow Borneo Taste Like?
To me and my friends it tastes like matcha. If you made Yellow Borneo into a tea, you can mask the taste (a bit) by adding honey or sugar to the beverage.
If you're taking Yellow Borneo via the toss and wash, use cold water, as it will reduce the taste just a tad bit more than luke warm water.
Yellow Borneo Side Effects
If abused, whether intentionally or accidentally, the outcome can be highly unpleasant. Yes, I speak from personal experience.
I've had the misfortune of accidentally inducing kratom side effects on more than one occassion.
1. Not drinking enough water while taking kratom.
2. Taking too much for your body to handle.
If you make the first mistake, expect:
1. Dry Mouth
When I experienced these side effects, I immediately drank at least 2-3 cups of water. All I could do afterwards, was wait.
When I made the second mistake of taking too much yellow Borneo, which I made on more than one occassion, I experienced only nausea. However, some people also vomit.
Unfortunately, all I could do to mitigate the side effects was lay down and wait an hour or two until it was over. Yes, it really does feel that bad.
None of the short term side effects are lethal.
Although there is a lack of studies in this particular area, most professionals agree that long-term side effects may include damage to vital organs such as the kidneys and liver.
Yellow Borneo Kratom Dosage
Those who are new to kratom should not take it twice in the same day, as that will significantly increase the odds of you experiencing side effects.
How Long Does Yellow Borneo Take to Kick In?
The anwer to this question depends on how you decide to use Yellow Borneo in the first place.
For example, capsules take much longer to kick in than tea.
Therefore, check out the table below to get an idea of how long it takes to feel Yellow Borneo's initial effects.
How To Use Yellow Borneo Kratom
Yellow Borneo Capsules
- No bad flavors
- Higher cost
- Take the longest to kick in
- Effects are slightly less potent
Here at Kratom Monkey, each capsule holds 0.7 grams of powder and is made with vegan material to protect those with allergic reactions to animal products.
Yellow Borneo Toss & Wash
- Kicks in fast
- Potent results
- Lowest cost
- Extremely bitter taste
- Some people may not enjoy the powdery texture
The toss and wash is my favorite way of using Yellow Borneo because of the potent results and how quickly the kick in.
For the toss and wash, take a spoonful of powder, swirl it around your mouth with water, and gulp it down. It's highly unpleasant, but it gets the job done.
Use cold water to (slightly) mitigate the bitter taste.
Yellow Borneo Tea
- Kicks in super fast
- Potent results
- Effects don't last as long
- Pungent bitter taste
Tea is my least favorite way of using Yellow Borneo because of the inconvenience required for preparation. The flavor is just as bitter as using powder via the toss and wash.
To make tea, boil water separately from kratom powder, then mix them together and allow it to simmer for 5-10 minutes. Filter the powder and enjoy!
Never boil kratom, as doing so will destroy the alkaloids and result in a reduction of potency.
