Those familiar with the different strains of kratom can attest to the fact that each strain possesses its own special effects. While all kratom comes from the same type of tree (Mitragyna Speciosa), it can vary in taste, aroma, and benefits according to the color of the leaf vein.
So what makes White Vein Kratom so different from other veins of this trending herbal supplement? And what are its uses? Why is kratom so popular in the first place? You will find the answer to these questions and more in the following review.
Although it has been in existence for hundreds of years, it is only recently that Kratom has become a hot commodity around the world. It is especially popular in the United States, where dozens of online kratom vendors are now offering a vast selection of kratom products.
The Mitragyna Speciosa is native to Southeast Asia, mainly tropical regions, where it can grow to as much as one hundred feet tall when it reaches its peak. The leaves of this ancient tree are picked during various life stages to produce different strains or veins of kratom.
For those unfamiliar with kratom, it is related to the coffee family and is believed to have some of the same effects. While not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US, it is still a big seller. As the effects tend to vary from one kratom user to the next, the AKA (American Kratom Association) advises that consumers use kratom with caution, and at their own risk. The AKA was set in place to safely oversee reputable online kratom vendors in the United States.
Kratom is illegal in some regions, while it is banned in others. Yet others have certain restrictions such as the age one must be to purchase kratom. Other regulations include how kratom is consumed or sold. Always check to see if the regulations in your area have changed before you attempt to buy kratom online. As such, you should only buy white vein kratom, or other strains, from a site that coincides with the AKA guidelines.
Alkaloids vs Different Veins of Kratom
There are a few things that make each vein of kratom different from the next. As mentioned above, the age at which the leaves are harvested plays an important role in the effects of the strain. As well, the process in which the kratom is dried is a factor. Some kratom strains are a blend of one or more veins of kratom to produce a unique blend.
Kratom contains dozens of naturally occurring compounds known as alkaloids. The most prominent of these alkaloids present in kratom leaves are Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. The amount and strength of these compounds vary according to the age of the kratom leaf as well as how it is dried.
Kratom leaves are harvested and then dried using various methods (ultraviolet light vs natural light, and so on). Then the leaves are usually crushed into a fine powder and then sold in bulk. Kratom is also sold as a capsule, herbal tea, and most recently as an extract. Some vendors sell dried kratom leaves and even kratom plants.
White Vein Kratom
Now that you have a little background on kratom and what makes it unique, let’s talk about white vein kratom. What makes it different from the other popular kratom veins (red and green?)
White Vein Kratom is rich in Mitragynine whereas it has a lower concentration of 7-hydroxymitragynine. Therefore, most have noted that the effects of the white vein are milder than those of red vein, which is said to have the highest level of both prominent alkaloids.
Some of the other alkaloids present in white vein kratom include
● Corynoxine A and B
White vein kratom is typically dried indoors for a few days, then again by direct sunlight to enhance these properties.
Types of White Vein Kratom
As with other veins of kratom, there are several types of white vein kratom available on the kratom marketplace. These may vary according to where they have been harvested and how they were processed. The most popular strains of white vein include:
● White Vein Bali Kratom
● White Vein Borneo Kratom
● White Vein Elephant Kratom
● White Vein Indo Kratom
● White Vein Maeng Kratom
● White Vein Sumatra Kratom
● White Vein Thai Kratom
● White Vein Vietnam Kratom
Uses for White Vein Kratom
There are numerous ways in which one can ingest kratom. As kratom typically has a bitter taste, some may prefer one method of using kratom over another. As well, each strain of kratom has a slightly to significantly different taste. It may take some sampling until you find the strain of kratom that you find the most effective. The same applies to the way you might prefer to consume kratom.
White Vein Kratom Teas
Kratom tea blends are gaining in popularity as more and more vendors are carrying this form of kratom. These are especially popular with avid tea and coffee connoisseurs.
White Vein Kratom Extracts
Kratom extracts are a fairly new commodity but seem to be catching on with experienced users of kratom. However, due to the method in which the extract is processed, they tend to be a bit on the pricey side.
White Vein Kratom Capsules
Kratom capsules are perhaps one of the most favored ways to ingest kratom, especially for those who shy away from the bitter aftertaste of kratom powder. Kratom capsules are available in different strains and strengths.
White Vein Kratom Powder
Kratom Powder is another big seller. It is cost-effective as it has many uses and can be purchased in bulk. You can mix the kratom powder in your favorite beverage (ie: shake, smoothie, coffee, or tea), brew your own kratom tea or coffee or even add it to your favorite dish. There are dozens of kratom powder recipes to be found online.
