Unless you are new to kratom, you most likely have tried many different kinds of kratom by now. Thus, you are probably seeking out new strains of kratom to satisfy your kratom craving.
White Elephant Kratom is one of those rare strains that only experienced kratom users may have tried. However, if you have not yet been lucky enough to sample this particular strain, you should very well give it a try. And if you are new to kratom, you might be wondering what the heck kratom is in the first place.
Either way, we are here to provide detailed information about kratom in general as well as Elephant Kratom, most importantly the white elephant. Stay tuned for more information!
No one can quite pinpoint when kratom was discovered. Some claim it was hundreds of years ago, while others say it has been in use in Southeast Asian regions for millions of years. Regardless of its birthdate, kratom has been used and enjoyed by natives of that area of the world for many years.
What exactly does kratom do? That answer is quite vague. Due to the fact that every single person has a different biochemical make-up, the kratom experience might change for each user. Some like its effects to that of coffee, which is a good assumption, seeing as how kratom is indeed a member of the coffee lineage.
The kratom tree, officially known as the Mitragyna Speciosa, grows exclusively in extremely tropical regions of Southeast Asia such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Thailand. For years, inhabitants of this area have cultivated the leaves of the kratom tree. Not so long ago, other countries heard tales of the benefits of kratom, and it suddenly exploded in popularity.
Now kratom is sold worldwide and is especially popular in the United States. However, as it is anticipating approval by the FDA, it is unlawful to purchase kratom in some states. It has also been prohibited by the ban in others. As such, there are strict age limitations for kratom use in the United States so take heed of this information before trying to purchase kratom where you live, either online or locally.
No, elephant kratom is not produced by elephants, as some might infer from the name. Instead, it is named after the formation of the leaves, which highly remember that of an ear of an elephant. The leaves of this particular tree are said to be the largest sized kratom leaves in existence.
Elephant Kratom is sourced solely from Indonesia. The elephant kratom tree grows in the mountains of the Ketapang forest. The tropical climate in this area greatly contributes to the amount of alkaloids that exist in elephant kratom leaves.
In case you didn’t know, alkaloids are an organic compound that exists in many of nature’s gifts, including coffee beans and nightshades, such as eggplant, peppers, and tomatoes. Kratom is most known for its unique alkaloid content, mainly Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine.
Elephant Kratom is no exception as it contains mighty powerful amounts of the previously mentioned alkaloids. Many kratom users have indicated that elephant kratom is one of the most robust strains of kratom.
White Elephant Kratom
What is white elephant kratom and how does it differ from its Red Elephant and Green Elephant Counterparts?
Kratom is thus named after the hue of the leaf vein of the kratom leaf when it was picked from the tree. Green vein kratom is the juvenile of the three, thus having a mild effect, while red is the most mature vein, thus labeling it as the most vigorous. Based on this, as it is sourced in the mid-range of its lifespan, white vein kratom is said to be the “middle-ground” of these veins.
And yes, there are other strains of kratom, such as gold or yellow and even silver. However, these varieties of kratom are formed from the way the leaves are dried. In other instances, some kratom strains are a blend of at least one kratom vein to form a one-of-a-kind kratom strain with distinctive benefits.
White Elephant Kratom is dried indoors in total darkness to further yield its unique benefits. Some strains are dried outdoors only, while others are dried indoors with or without varying levels of artificial light. Some are even dried in a combination of the two. This process has a direct impact on the potency of the alkaloids in the leaves.
If you are considering buying white elephant kratom, might we suggest that you do not attempt to buy it locally? As it is extremely rare, there is no way to prove that locally purchased kratom is authentic or free from contaminants such as heavy metals. Only purchase white elephant kratom, or any elephant kratom, from a reputable kratom vendor.
A reliable kratom vendor will indicate somewhere on their website that they are affiliated with the American Kratom Association. This means that they follow strict guidelines in the production methods as well as test their kratom at a neutral third party laboratory before they can sell it legally on their website.
How to Make Use of White Elephant Kratom
Similar to any other form of kratom, white elephant kratom is sold as an extract, capsule, or powder. Some vendors sell dried and/or crushed kratom leaves beneficial for making kratom tea. Yet others use their own special blend of kratom teas.
Kratom extracts are exceptionally concerned and therefore only should be consumed by those who have a great deal of knowledge and experience with kratom. As such, they tend to cost quite a bit more than other forms and are often hard to find especially white elephant kratom extract.
Kratom capsules and powder are more readily available. Kratom capsules are already measured in pre-packed increments and one can consume them with ease.
Kratom powder is multifaceted as it can be used in cooking, baking, and added to drinks anywhere from hot beverages to shakes and smoothies. It does have a slightly sour taste, so you might want to sweeten it up a bit with honey, agave, or another sweetening agent.
