Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family. It’s native to Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, and other South Asian countries. The leaves, or extracts from the leaves, have been used as a stimulant and a sedative for hundred of years. It’s also been reported for treating chronic pain, depression, digestive ailments, and so much more. There are many strains of Kratom, including green, red, and white vein kratom varieties. What is white Kratom? Each strain provides different effects, from stimulating to sedative. Users report mood lifts, pain relief, and increased energy and focus.
Kratom veins are distinguished by the color of the stem and vein of the leaf. However, there’s more than just optics that separate kratom veins. On a pharmacological level, red and green vein leaves typically contain more mitragynine –– the active ingredient (alkaloid) in kratom often associated with pain relief. White kratom leaves, on the other hand, have higher levels of 7-hydroxymitragynine, the alkaloid that has been said to provide boosts of energy. How a person reacts to kratom depends not only on the vein and strain, but also on the amount that is taken. There are many strains of White Vein Kratom, but what are the best white kratom strains? Here are a good sampling and descriptions:
White Kratom Strains:
White Maeng Da Capsules, Powder or Crushed Leaf – White Maeng Da is a White Vein Kratom that is one of the most powerful strains when it comes to alkaloid content. “Maeng Da” literally translates to mean “Pimp Grade” and is one of the most popular strains of Kratom. The white vein is said to be a mood uplifter and a major energy boost while also helping with focus. There are reports that these properties may help distract from pain.
White Malay Capsules or Powder – White Malay is a White Vein Kratom that is a wide mix of alkaloid content. This is grown in Malaysia and is said to be a very good fit for people with high stress or anxiety levels. White Vein Malay has a reputation for providing a major energy boost, while giving mental clarity and helping focus. White Malay has a very strong following of diehard fans.
White Horn Capsules or Powder – White Horn Kratom is a rare form of Kratom and one of the most potent. It is called Horn due to the distinctly different shape of the leaves. White Horn is said to be a big energy boost and has been used for its potential cognitive-enhancing effects. Horn is rapidly joining Maeng Da as one of the most popular forms of Kratom, and the White Vein Horn is one that will give a huge boost to productivity.
Super White Borneo Capsules or Powder– Super White Borneo Kratom is a White Vein from Borneo said to provide euphoria and sustained energy. There are reports that these properties help distract from pain. It can be both stimulating and relaxing. This Kratom has been known to induce less nausea. The “Super” in the name means that only the largest leaves are used in the processing of this Kratom. The larger the leaves, the higher the alkaloid content tends to be, so these strains tend to be much stronger.
White Samarinda Capsules or Powder – White Samarinda is grown in the Samarinda Forest in East Borneo. This is a relatively unknown strain but packs a punch! Much stronger than normal white strains, it provides a major energy boost while helping increase levels of focus. As a very “fast” strain, this is not one to have in the evening time. This strain has been very popular in the weightlifting areas as a pre-workout energy boost.
