Thai kratom has been in much debate. Originally banned in the 1940s, it is said that kratom is now on the borderline of legality in Thailand once again. However, while on the off chance that one may obtain genuine Thai kratom, the majority of Thai Kratom sold today is sourced sustainably from Indonesia.
Confused? We don’t blame you. There is much to learn about kratom, as it is becoming increasingly popular and more mainstream. In this article, we shall take a look at kratom in general, Thai kratom, and then focus on Green Thai Kratom. Green Thai is extremely popular with those looking for a mild form of the ever-popular Red vein Thai Kratom.
The Story of Kratom
While it can be found online from kratom vendors all around the globe, kratom is only grown in the most tropic regions of Southeast Asia. The region that currently produces the most kratom is Indonesia, home to popular kratom strains such as Maeng Da and Kali Kratom.
Kratom leaves are picked at various growth stages from the Mitragyna Speciosa, an ancient tree native to these cultures. For years, many have enjoyed chewing on kratom leaves to ingest the alkaloids containing its leaves. Kratom leaves are extremely full of alkaloids, mostly 7-Hydroxymitragynine and Mitragynine. Many attribute the benefits of kratom to these powerful compounds, which occur naturally.
The soil and unique weather conditions in these Southeast Asia countries make it the perfect environment for the kratom tree to thrive. Leaves are picked at varying levels of maturity. Green leaves are the youngest, white vein kratom is a middle ground and red vein kratom is obtained at the peak of its maturity.
Therefore, red vein kratom in any variety contains the highest and most potent level of alkaloids. This makes it preferable for those who are experienced with kratom use. If you are just trying kratom for the first time, you should start off with green vein kratom, until you are comfortable with the way kratom affects you.
Not approved by the FDA, kratom is not legal in some places in the U.S. Do not attempt to obtain kratom if it is indeed illegal or banned where you live, or you will have to abide by the consequences.
Another thing worth noting is that every kratom user will have a unique experience. Therefore, the benefits of kratom are in no way guaranteed on any level. Always use any organic supplement at your own risk. Please take according to the directions on the packaging and do not go over the recommended dosage.
Some compare kratom to coffee. This makes perfect sense as they are descendants of the same family. However, as stated above, the effects may vary. Not everyone gets the same results from coffee, some find it calming, while others are exhilarating. The same is true for kratom.
Kratom was made illegal in Thailand in the late 1940s, but is believed to be on the brink of being made legal once more. While you can find Thai kratom sourced from Thailand, the majority of Thai Kratom is still being grown in Indonesia.
Thai kratom is said to be similar to Maeng Da Kratom in its experience. However, there are many that say that Thai Kratom is the better of the two. It is your personal preference however, and we suggest that you try each strain before making your final choice. Many kratom vendors offer variety packs with different kratom strains for those who are new to the world of kratom.
Green Thai Kratom
Harvested from green vein kratom, Green Thai kratom is hailed as the mildest form of Thai Kratom. While Red Vein is said to be the most potent, Green vein kratom is ideal for novices. White Vein Kratom is sort of the middle-of-the-road variety of red and green vein Thai kratom.
Typically, to maintain its bright green hue, Green Thai kratom is dried for a few days indoors before it is returned outdoors to dry under direct sunlight. Red vein kratom is mainly dried outdoors only to help mature the red kratom leaves.
Green Thai kratom is indeed suitable for first-time kratom users. However, as Thai Kratom is generally one of the strongest kratom strains, green vein kratom does have a bit of a kick. Keep this in mind and start off with a small dose and work your way up to the recommended dose.
As Green Thai Kratom is indeed popular, it might be hard to find. However, if you obtain it legally from a reputable online kratom vendor, it is well worth the cost and the wait!
Never buy kratom from an online seller that does not associate with the American Kratom Association. The AKA was put in place to ensure that all kratom sold online by trusted vendors is 100% pure and free of heavy metals.
On most reliable kratom websites, you can readily find a variety of kratom strains in both powder and capsule forms.
Capsules are ideal as they are easy to take. Also, the amount of kratom in each capsule has already been measured, which saves you a great deal of time and effort.
Kratom powder, however, has multiple uses. It can be added to food or drink. Add a dash of kratom to your morning tea, fruit, and yogurt smoothies or protein shake. Use it for cooking and baking as well, get creative!
If you are a die-hard kratom enthusiast and don’t mind spending some of your hard-earned money, kratom extracts are the way to go! This highly concentrated form of kratom is quite potent and fast-acting. But it is not recommended for beginners due to its strong effects.
