General Information on Kratom Itself
Perhaps you stumbled across this blog whilst looking for healthy alternatives to coffee. Or maybe someone suggested that you give kratom a try. You may even have seen the words “white hulu kapuas” and were intrigued by the name.
Let us provide you with a brief history lesson on kratom before we discuss white hulu kapuas to satisfy the curiosity of those new to kratom.
Kratom is the general name, but there are many different varieties of kratom. This powerful herb is harvested from elderly trees that grow in the tropics of Southeast Asia. The Mitragyna Speciosa tree relies on the unique climatic conditions of these countries to produce high quality kratom.
Kratom leaves contain organic matter otherwise known as alkaloids. These compounds are unique to the kratom tree. Each strain of kratom varies in the combination and strength of these alkaloids, thus making each variety of kratom somewhat unique.
Once these leaves are picked and dried under various conditions, they are then sold worldwide to reputable kratom vendors. Kratom users can purchase kratom teas, powders, extracts, and capsules to experience a variety of benefits, each of which varies from one user to another. Therefore, we cannot promise that anyone will experience said effects, in the same way, Thus, the choice to consume kratom falls strictly on the consumer, especially given that it is illegal in some vicinities, banned in others, and not yet approved by the FDA.
Where Does Hulu Kapuas Kratom Originate?
Adjacent to the border of Malaysia, on the banks of the Kapuas River in the Hulu Forest of Indonesia, grow a rare strain of kratom known as Hulu Kapuas Kratom. This region is isolated from other areas of Indonesia and thus, transportation is a bit of a challenge, to say the least. This, in addition to its specific climate and unique drying process, Hulu Kapuas kratom is often hard to obtain.
Hulu Kapuas kratom is said to have an extraordinarily high level of alkaloids. Along with its rarity, this makes it a highly coveted variety amongst experienced kratom users. The various strains of hulu kapuas differ slightly due to the time at which the kratom leaves were sourced. Typically, green hulu kapuas is the mildest, while red hulu kapuas is hailed as one of the most powerful strains of kratom overall.
This brings us specifically to White Hulu Kapuas Kratom? What is it about this strain that makes it so desirable? Read on to find out!
White Hulu Kapuas Kratom
The color of kratom is dependent on a variety of factors, including the color of the leaf vein, the manner in which the kratom is dried, and how the kratom is mixed. However, in most cases, red, white, and green veins refer to the age of the leaf. Red is the eldest, green the youngest and white is mid-term.
Therefore, white hulu kapuas kratom contains slightly higher levels of mature alkaloids than the green vein. Whereas, it is not as potent as the red vein, which is obtained from fully developed kratom leaves. Hence, white kratom is a moderate strain and can be used by those who are just starting their kratom journey. However, we recommend first trying green vein kratom to see how it affects you individually. Red kratom in any form is best left to those who are proficient with how kratom impacts them.
Hulu Kapuas kratom contains quite a large amount of alkaloids, mainly mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, which make up almost 50% of its content. These are said to be the most significant levels of these two alkaloids present in any strain of kratom. Some of the others present in hulu kapuas kratom varieties include 3-Iso Corynantheidine. 3-Isopaynanthein, 7-acetoxymitragynine, 3-Hydroxymitragynine, Paynanthein, and many, many more!
Once harvested by locals, who carefully tend to the kratom tree, White Hulu Kapuas is then dried indoors under specific lighting conditions to nurture the alkaloids contained within the leaves. They are then restored to natural light for a period before the leaves are processed and exported to trusted kratom vendors.
