White vein kratom has a unique alkaloid profile that exhibits larger quantities of mitragynine and lower quantities of 7-hydroxymitragynine. The former relates more to the euphoric effects of kratom, while the latter gives kratom its analgesic (pain killing) properties.
Red vein kratom is the most popular type of kratom selling on the market today. It outstrips the sales of both the white vein kratom and green vein kratom combined. Since white vein kratom has less of the pain killing properties than its red-veined counterpart, people who use it are those looking to ease themselves off opioids while enhancing their energy and moods.
People who use white vein kratom are also looking to quell and suppress depressive and anxious feelings. It’s perfect for that. That’s because mitragynine elevates your mood, makes you more alert and gives you a euphoric sensation. Red-veined kratom is quite the opposite. It’s far more sedative. Think about a small kick of morphine, only not as powerful.
Now, if you’re suffering from chronic pain, red-veined kratom is great. So is Maeng Da kratom. Maeng Da kratom is alkaloid rich across the board, meaning it’s good for opioid withdrawals and for pain relief. But when it comes to white vein kratom, it’s primarily rich in mitragynine, which is the alkaloid responsible for the euphoric sensation.
For that reason, white vein kratom is great for battling withdrawal symptoms. It’s also great for energy and overall mood elevation. All of those things come into play in addicts who are trying to kick their bad habits but also people who are dealing with depression, low self-esteem issues and more.
White vein kratom for energy
If you take any semblance of time to peruse through kratom forums, you’ll discover that most people turn to white vein kratom for clean energy. Meaning, it lacks the jitteriness that’s usually associated to caffeine and other stimulants. After all, kratom is an organic supplement that comes from an evergreen tree from the coffee family.
It makes sense that a tree from the coffee family is known for its energetic properties. Of course, not all strains of kratom provide energy, but white vein kratom certainly does. If you’re looking for an alternative to coffee, this might be the right source. Then again, it might not. You have to use your own discretion in making that decision.
Why? Because kratom can be addictive and it does have side effects. However, ask any of the 4 to 5 million Americans who use kratom and they’d likely vehemently vouch for its benefits. White vein kratom is also great for endurance because it still does dull the pain while increasing the energy levels.
Although white vein kratom isn’t like red vein kratom in that it’s designed to dull the pain, it does still have a low dosage of 7-hydroxymitragynine, which is the alkaloid responsible for the analgesic effect. So it still dulls pain without sedating. That’s appealing to most who are looking for a more functional biologic response from kratom.
Enhanced focus and alertness
Another one of the common reasons why people use this strain of kratom is for the so-called “nootropic” boost in cognitive functions. This includes things like enhanced memory recall, the ability to focus and be more alert. Some of that alertness comes from the caffeine-like energetic boost.
Most attribute this to enhanced alertness that results from the mild pain-relieving effect combined with the caffein-like response from the body. Keep in mind that the primary alkaloid profile of kratom is primarily a combination of mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. Those two alkaloids are responsible for both the euphoric and analgesic effects, respectively.
Strains of white kratom available
White vein kratom strains are certainly unique in their nature. They’re often not sought out by many who are looking to try kratom for the first time. Usually, most people prefer the red vein kratom strain because it’s analgesic. However, there are some variations in white kratom that alter the effects it has.
For example, some white vein kratom strains do have a stronger pain killing effect. For example, the white vein maeng da achieves this due to the rich alkaloid profile of both mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, which is achieved through a process known as grafting.
However, if you’re looking for the right strain of white vein kratom, there are a few popular ones you can choose from. Keep in mind that physical response to any strain of kratom, although relatively uniform, does depend on the individual person. Not every person will have a uniform response. So it’s best to test in very small doses before increasing the amount of intake.
White Vein Maeng Da
White vein Maeng Da is a potent strain. Primarily because its altered (or “grafted”) through a process known as selective breeding. This results in a strain that’s incredibly potent and alkaloid rich. This results in a euphoric sensation and pain relief since both primary alkaloids are present in abundance. Most claim that this strain is also the strongest strain of white vein kratom on the market today.
White Vein Thai
This strain of kratom has slightly lower pain-killing effects than White Vein Maeng Da. For that reason, some prefer it less. However, this strain is great if you’re looking to be more alert and to boost cognitive functions, especially while on the job. It has less of a sedative feel and far more of an energetic boost.
White Vein Bali
The White Vein Bali strain is great for relaxation. It has a higher amount of mitragynine, which increases the euphoric effect. This is also idea for those struggling with opioid withdrawal. White Vein Bali does have a small analgesic effect, so it can be useful for those who are also looking to relieve some pain. But this is far less pronounced in this strain than it is in say the White Vein Maeng Da.
White Vein Sumatra
The Sumatra strain is very rich in mitragynine, which conveys that euphoric effect. For those struggling with opioid withdrawal who are also looking to stay alert and aware, this is ideal. This has high nootropic effects as well, providing a great deal of clarity and cognitive boosts, making it ideal for deep thinking tasks and other related work.
White Vein Borneo
This strain will enhance your focus, much like the other white vein kratom strains will. However, it’s more pronounced in White Vein Borneo overall. This has a more pronounced pain relief effect, however, than some of the other strains. But not as much as the White Vein Maeng Da. However, if you’re looking for some semblance of pain relief while still maintaining your overall mood and energy, then this is the right strain for you.
