What is Borneo Kratom?

Ancient Rainforests in the Heart of Southeast Asia

If you try to think of the lushest, humid island that would provide the ideal growing conditions for Mitragyna Speciosa (including white Borneo kratom), you would be hard-pressed to find a more perfect place than Borneo.

Borneo is a tropical island on the equator that is shared by Indonesia, Malaysia, and the tiny nation of Brunei. As well as straddling the northern and southern hemispheres, the island of Borneo is the geographic maritime center of Southeast Asia.

The third-largest island in the world, Borneo is home to an ancient and biodiverse forest that provides habitat for endemic rainforest creatures such as the critically-endangered Borneo orangutan, the Borneo elephant, and the Bornean clouded leopard. It is also home to over 15,000 different plants, including white, green, and red-vein Borneo kratom.

A Goldmine for Paper, Palm Oil… and Kratom!

The ancient and biodiverse rainforests of Borneo have made it a hotspot for green and white Borneo kratom and also for those seeking to make a profit from its abundant timber and tropical climate. Large sections of native rainforest have been burnt to the ground to make way for palm oil plantations with an average of 917,000 hectares of native forest cleared in Indonesia per year between 2009 and 2013.

Logging for paper production has been another source of deforestation with half of the world’s tropical paper coming from Borneo. Currently, Indonesia is experiencing the fastest loss of natural rainforest than any other country in the world.

Kratom Farming: A Sustainable Option

A much more sustainable use of Borneo’s beautiful rainforests is wild harvesting white Borneo kratom, red-vein Borneo kratom, and green Borneo kratom. As Mitragyna Speciosa grows naturally in the wild of Borneo, no native jungle needs to be cleared for its production. All the harvesters need to do is to pick the highest-quality leaves, dry them, and ship them to us!

This process is further facilitated by Indonesian laws that permit the harvesting and trade of kratom. As 73% of Borneo is owned by Indonesia, that makes this island an ideal source of high-quality kratom products.

The Properties of Borneo Kratom

Anyone who has tried white, green or red-vein Borneo kratom is likely to tell you that these strains are special. Containing more of a low-end alkaloid profile, these ancient strains are generally more soothing than other kratom varieties.

The diversity of climates on the island enables a range of different strains to grow, and users claim that kratom strains from Borneo (like green and white) provoke fewer side-effects than those from other origins. This makes Borneo kratom a great choice for newbies as well as experienced kratom users looking for something new.

Where Borneo kratom really shines, though, is in its soothing aroma. Users say that the red and green Borneo kratom strains (more than white) offer a stronger soothing aroma than Indo or Bali strains.

Red-Vein Borneo Kratom

Red-vein Borneo kratom varieties are generally thought to be the most relaxing of the three strain colors and red-vein Borneo kratom is no exception. Among kratom users, red-vein Borneo kratom is said to offer soothing effects as well as relaxing, euphoric, and sleep-promoting overtones. So, if you struggle with restless nights, red-vein Borneo kratom may be just the solution!

Green Borneo Kratom

One of our most popular strains, green-vein Borneo kratom is a well-balanced blend that has been described as strong yet smooth. Carrying a mild scent, this strain is said to have similar soothing and relaxing qualities to red-vein Borneo. Compared to red varieties, however, it is more stimulating and less relaxing. So green Borneo kratom is the perfect choice if you are looking for a balance between the two other popular stains.

White Borneo Kratom

White-vein Borneo kratom is more on the “uplifting” end of the scale than our other two strains with a reputation for a gently stimulating aroma. The aroma of this unique strain is said to be pleasantly clean and motivating, perfect for those days when you have a long to-do list!
