Kratom comes in three main varieties, each indicated by a color. White vein kratom is thought to be a more potent strain of the kratom plant that is created through different processes compared to other kratom strains. White kratom may have its own unique effects compared to red and green kratom, and can be taken by individuals who are seeking those effects in particular.
What Is White Vein Kratom?
All kratom strains are derived from the very same plant, but they earn their differences during the curing process, when leaves are dried and sometimes fermented.
In the case of white vein kratom, the leaves of the mitragyna speciosa tree are harvested early in their maturity and then dried indoors, possibly in an air conditioned room. As a part of their drying process, they are not exposed to any light, whether it be natural sunlight or light from indoor lamps, which keeps the color from deepening or darkening. The white vein kratom powder that makes it to market is the result of this unique process, which is unlike the drying process for other strains of kratom.
Where Does White Vein Kratom Come From?
Like all strains of kratom, white vein kratom is produced from the leaves of the mitragyna speciosa tree, which grows in a number of countries throughout Southeast Asia. In particular, the countries of Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Borneo are all known to grow the mitragyna speciosa tree and produce kratom from its leaves.
White vein kratom comes in a variety of different substrains, which are sometimes identified by their country of origin. Names that include a country or region are intended to indicate the source country for that particular variety of white kratom. Some common varieties of white vein kratom include:
There is also a popular variety of kratom called Maeng Da, which is traditionally (though no longer exclusively) grown in Thailand and specially curated to be of especially high quality. White vein Maeng Da is a subset of this variety, blending the qualities of white vein kratom with the curation process used to select Maeng Da leaves.
White Vein Kratom Effects
People who use white vein kratom report feeling a boost of energy that helps them to get through their day. It is thought that white vein kratom has a mild stimulant effect. White vein kratom is also believed to be the most potent of the three main strains of kratom. Users describe it as an acquired taste, compared to the mellower red and green strains.
Measuring White Vein Kratom: How Much Should I Buy?
It’s ideal to find an amount of white vein kratom that works for you. Once you do that, there are different ways to buy and measure your own white vein kratom.
White Vein Powder
White vein kratom is often sold as a powder. If you buy it in powdered form, you can find an exact amount (usually by weight) that provides you with the effects that you’re looking for and measure that out on your own, using a kitchen scale or even measuring spoons/cups to get a consistent amount.
White Vein Kratom Capsules
If you’d rather not measure out an exact weights of powder for yourself, you have the option of buying white vein kratom in prepackaged capsules. Each capsule prepared at Kratom Spot has about 0.6 grams of white vein kratom in it; packages containing various quantities of capsules can be bought. Capsules can be ideal if you’ve found a comfortable amount for yourself and you’re not interested in measuring out the kratom on your own each time you want to use it.
