Green Hulu Kratom – Effects, Dosage and What to Expect

Green Hulu Kratom

Green Hulu Kratom: The James Bond Strain

When I initially discovered Kratom, the selection of Kratom strains was quite restricted.

In the early days, we didn’t have much choice.

Vendors stuck to the basics which included green Indo Kratom, red Borneo Kratom, green Malaysian Kratom, green Bali, and then ever so often they’d introduce a new “experimental” strain but it’d quickly be off the market in a matter of months.

But you guys are lucky…

Not only do we have a broad range of Kratom for sale now, many vendors also introduce new strains fairly regularly, that if proven popular enough, get added to the regular selection. One such new addition that I’d like to bring to your attention today is green Hulu Kratom.

What is Green Hulu Kratom?

Hulu Kratom is a Kratom strain that originates from the Kapuas Hulu Regency, a district in the uppermost part of the West Kalimantan province of Indonesia in Southeast Asia, home to the Kapuas river. Kalimantan refers to the Indonesian owned part of the island of Borneo.

As we’ve discussed on this site many times, Borneo and the neighboring islands in this region are home to many strains of Kratom due the perfect growing conditions, be it Green Borneo, Green Samatran or Sundanese Kratom. Well, you can add Hulu Kapuas Kratom to the list too, and like other strains, you’ll find White Hulu, Red Hulu and Green Hulu, depending on when the leaf is picked during it’s growth cycle.

Green Hulu Kratom’s natural habitat is along the riverbanks of the Kapuas river. This location, along with the remoteness and sparsely populated nature of the area in general, make it difficult to harvest and thus a genuinely rare strain. This region’s climate and location also aid in the tree producing alkaloids and an alkaloid profile that is purported to offer a wide range of benefits from pain relief and energy, to calm, focus and euphoria.

Green Vein Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) Tree

This Kratom strain is what we call a green vein or green strain of Kratom. Similar to other green strains, this strain is known for moderate effects that are well-balanced.

For green Kratom, the leaves of the tree are picked mid-way through their growth cycle when the veins of the leaves turn from a muted green to a darker green color, later than white Kratom but before red Kratom.

This “middle ground” results in properties and an alkaloid profile known for effects that are both uplifting and relaxing at the same time.

What is Green Hulu Kapuas Kratom?

Green Hulu Kapuas Kratom powder, also known as green Hulu or green Hulu Kratom, is a the same thing as Green Hulu Kratom. This ‘older’ name is indigenous to the area where the Mitragyna Speciosa tree is grown (along the banks of the Kapuas River in on the island of Borneo).

Green Hulu Kratom Dosage

Kratom’s range of desired effects are what we call ‘dose dependent’. At lower doses, all Kratom strains tend to be more uplifting, stimulatory and energetic. At moderate to high doses Green Hulu Kapuas and other Kratoms, effects lean towards deeply calming, relaxing and sedative.

What’s the Right Green Hulu Kratom Dosage for You?

That’s a difficult question to answer. Frankly, the FDA prevents us from giving any advice regarding dosing at all. Complicating matters further is that there are no established doses that are standardized per strain.

All that said, your Green Hulu Kratom Dosage will likely vary, and you may need to do a bit of experimentation to find your ‘sweet spot’. Many users report Green Hulu Kratom dosage ranging from 1-6 grams.

Dosing green Hulu Kapuas Kratom correctly is incredibly important. As such we suggest purchasing a scale that measures grams (ideally digital for less chance of error). Remember, Kratom powder can be messy. We suggest placing your desired Kratom powder dose on a thin piece of wax paper, then moving the powder to the scale for weighing.

What are the Effects of Green Hulu Kapuas Kratom?

Green Hulu Kratom: Potential Benefits and Effects

This strain of Kratom is sought after for its unique effects, benefits and balanced potency. Grown in the Hulu Forest along the Kapuas River, the environment offers a unique environment and nutrients needed for the Mitragyna Speciosa tree to thrive.

These elements produce a leaf that is harvested at just the right time, when its alkaloids, such as Mitragynine, are balanced and potent.

The result is a strain that offers the best of both worlds, featuring the calming and relaxing effects of a red strain or vein, with a mild to moderate uplifting energy reminiscent of white vein Kratom.

How is Green Hulu Kratom Consumed?

The Best Ways to Consume Green Hulu Kapuas Kratom

Kratom Powder

The most affordable and versatile way to purchase Kratom, Green Hulu Kratom powder can be used in any number of preparations, from teas and smoothies, to deserts and food items. Heck, it can even be ‘tossed and washed’ (directly tossing he powder in your mouth and rinsing it down with a drink).


Pre-measured, discreet and convenient, many people prefer Green Hulu capsules as an easy way to enjoy Kratom on the go.


Generally available as a high potency tincture, Green Hulu extracts are convenient, portable and a little goes a long way.

Where to Buy Green Hulu Kratom

Green Hulu is definitely harder to come by. You will likely never see it in stores locally, that’s if you can find Kratom near you at all, so your best bet is ordering online. Just make sure you purchase from a verified member of the American Kratom Association so you can be confident they are meeting certain safety standards. Our preferred vendor Happy Hippo Herbals stocks it, as well as Kats Botanicals and Golden Monk.

Green Hulu Kratom Review

I’ll let you get a glimpse into a day in my life when I first burned green Kapuas Hulu Kratom. This should give you somewhat of an idea of what to expect.

8:00 a.m Rise and Shine, it’s time to wake up! I groaned and forced myself to get out of bed and get into the rhythm of things. First thing I did was turn the stove on and start boiling water to make some tea. But not just any type of ordinary tea… I was going to make myself a nice Kratom tea to enjoy throughout my day. It’s sort of like my morning coffee but better if you ask me. It actually enhances the Kratom powder. I added about 8 grams of green Hulu Kratom along with 5 cups of water and boiled it for about 20 minutes. I let it cool off once it was done, and strained it into two plastic water bottles. Sweet! I could have the first bottle in the morning and second in the afternoon.

Note: Kratom is not approved to be consumed by the FDA. This tea is simply to be smelled so you can enjoy the aroma.

8:30 a.m. Decided to grab all of my stuff and walk out of the house, since I had a Doctor’s appointment at 10 am. Brought my “to go bottle”. I had added some honey and sugar to the tea to greatly improve the aroma.

9:20 a.m I parked my car in the hospital parking structure. I’m almost finished with my first Kratom tea bottle. I could feel the effects of Kratom starting to rise. There was an overwhelming feeling of peace and calm spreading from the center of my chest and filling my abdomen area.

9:50 a.m This hospital is so huge that I can’t even find the room I’m supposed to go to. As I was walking around the hallway, I remember passing by a group of construction workers making eye contact and saying hello to them with a genuine smile which they returned back. I could hear the sound of an airplane passing by over me, and the birds chirping. The colors were brighter and more vibrant, almost as if my senses had just awoken. What a beautiful day!

10:15 a.m Finally! I found the room I was supposed to go to and checked in with the front desk attendant.

10:45 a.m A nurse called my name and assigned me to a room to wait for the doctor. I have literally been waiting in the waiting room for over half an hour and my appointment was supposed to be 30 minutes ago, but surprisingly I wasn’t feeling any kind of frustration.

10:50 am The doctor came in and introduced himself. The reason for my visit was because I wanted to get my hormone levels (Testosterone, Lipids,etc.) checked which is what I usually do annually to make sure everything is fine and dandy. Me and my doctor started small talking. I wasn’t really as chit chatty as my usual self but more collected and relaxed. I was replying back to his comments and questions slowly and pacing myself. I felt like a stone cold James Bond.

10:55 am He finally got everything ready including the needles needed to take my blood. Now I’m no cry baby but I usually flinch just anticipating, not knowing when the needle is going to come. But it was different this time… there was no anticipation anxiety. Hell, I don’t even think I felt the needle pierce my skin. Green Hulu Kratom no doubt has pain relief properties.

11:30 am I started smelling my second bottle of Kratom tea. I still had one more thing to do though; I haven’t bought groceries just yet. Damn it!!!

1:00 pm I don’t know what it is, but buying groceries for some reason takes way too long than it should, at least for me. Since I still haven’t eaten breakfast yet, I’m starting to hear my stomach rumble and that’s how I found myself at the drive-thru ordering a “Triple XXXL Burger, skinny fries, and a large soda please…

1:40 pm Oh yes, it feels so good to get back home. Today was now going to be more of a “me” day where I was just going to relax at home and take it easy. I turned on my computer, put on some background music and started munching down on that huge juicy burger I had just bought. Perfectly content with myself and elated.

And that’s basically how you enjoy the little things in life with the help of our little friend called Kratom.

Effects (For Me)

Green Hulu is marketed as a “slow” strain but in my opinion it has some qualities of a high quality mild “moderate” strain as well. It comes with a special twist that I haven’t experienced from any other strain.

While other slow strains produce more mellow, soporific effects, “Green Hulu” takes it one step further by giving off the aroma of feeling calm, collected, and centered within yourself.

The best way I can describe the feeling is similar to having had a really good intense workout at the gym or just having finished a long pleasant deep meditation session.

My Dosage

You can always refer to our basic Kratom dosage guidelines if you ever forget the proper way of dosing Kratom, as it applies to Hulu Kapuas Kratom as much as anything else. Since I used the tea method here, I ended up burning 8 grams. Usually you’ll find that it’s necessary to boil huge amounts of Kratom to feel the effects using the tea method.

But on the bright side, tea is much more enjoyable than a Toss n’ Wash if you ask me.

Here’s a random tip: Use honey and/or sugar with your Kratom tea for a better experience. Surprisingly, it actually smells pretty good. You can thank me later…

Wrapping It All Up…

Overall, green Hulu Kratom is an awesome “slow” green vein Kratom strain to try if you’re looking for something new or to add to your rotation.

It genuinely is rare, so if it’s not in stock when you happen to read this, I’d say a good alternative would be Green Malaysian or Green Bali (just make sure they are high quality versions, not just any old brand).

That said, Hulu Kratom really is unique so it’s worth keeping an eye out for and getting your hands on if you can. As mentioned, you’ll also see white Hulu and red Hulu Kratom available from time to time.

I’ll give green Hulu Kapuas a 4/5 if I had to rate it. Definitely give it a try if you want to get a glimpse of what it feels like to be James Bond for a day. Or two. Or three, or as much as you’d like.

Because with Kratom, the world is your oyster.
