White Kratom: All You Need to Know

Share this post: twitterfacebookpinterest Whatsapp

Although kratom has existed for centuries, many aspects of the plant remain shrouded in mystery. Due to regional differences as well as harvesting and processing techniques, dozens of kratom varieties exist with little to no conclusive differentiation between them.

In an attempt to provide clarity, the kratom community has classified most kratom variants, or “strains,” into one of three categories — red, white, and green. However, the lines between these classifications can seem blurred, often leaving both newcomers and veterans alike puzzled regarding their options.

So, just what is white vein kratom, and what makes it unique? Let’s take a look!


The Origins of White Kratom

Kratom — the dried leaves of the tropical evergreen tree mitragyna speciosa — has been cultivated and harvested throughout its native region of Southeast Asia for hundreds of years. Although Indonesia and Thailand are the largest exporters of kratom, the plant also grows abundantly in other countries such as Malaysia and Vietnam.

Generally, white, green, and red kratom are all sourced from Southeast Asia. That said, some strains — such as White Borneo — are named after their respective subregions of growth.

However, as with any other kratom color, the term “white vein kratom” refers to how white kratom is made. Depending on how farmers cultivate and harvest their kratom, natural color variations in the stems and leaves of the mitragyna speciosa plant can develop.

Leaf maturity is the first source of differentiation between kratom colors and strains. Over its lifespan, a kratom leaf can turn from red to green, to yellow, and eventually, brown. To diversify the red, green, and white vein’s kratom effects, kratom farmers will often capitalize on kratom’s color cycling by picking and drying leaves at specific intervals. Generally, white kratom is made from mature leaves.

After harvest, the distinguishing qualities of white vein kratom strains continue to develop during the drying phase. By adjusting drying times or using specific techniques, kratom farmers can further alter the alkaloid and flavonoid content of their kratom harvests. Some kratom farmers even take additional steps to create specialty strains by drying their leaves in the shade or fermenting them.

What Makes White Vein Kratom Unique?

Contrary to popular belief, the differences between white vein and other kratom colors aren’t purely cosmetic. The same harvest, drying, and processing methods that we discussed earlier actually imbue white vein kratom strains with specific traits and characteristics.

White kratom strains are unique in that they’re known for their energizing and mood-elevating aromas, whereas green and red strains are considered to be far more relaxing. Many buyers find that the stimulating aroma of white vein kratom is conducive to focus and wakefulness, which allows them to become more productive during periods of lethargy and fatigue.

However, white kratom might not be ideal for everybody. For one, white strains tend to have shorter durations when compared to their red and green counterparts. Secondly, some buyers find white vein kratom strains to be overly stimulating.

As such, white kratom will likely be suitably stimulating for those who can look past the shorter duration. That said, an individual’s experience with the effects of white kratom is ultimately subjective, and some variance should be expected.

Where & How to Buy White Vein Kratom

Whether you’re a first-time buyer or a regular kratom veteran familiar with white vein kratom’s effects, the first step in getting your hands on white vein kratom should always involve buying from a trusted, reliable source. By buying all-natural kratom from a reputable vendor, you’ll reduce the risk of receiving an adulterated or otherwise compromised product.

Aside from choosing your supplier, shopping for white kratom also involves selecting a kratom variety, or “strain.” While you’ll likely find dozens of options, some popular white vein kratom strains include:

Depending on the strain you choose, the resulting aroma of your kratom can vary. White Maeng Da, for example, is considered to be very potent, while White Vein Sumatra is known for being only moderately energizing.

If you’re unsure about choosing an ideal white vein strain for yourself, our White Vein Kratom Pack allows you to sample each of our powdered white kratom strains in an accessible and comprehensive package.

Other White Kratom Products

As with red and green kratom, white vein kratom is commonly exported and sold as a finely ground powder. However, many kratom vendors sell white kratom in other forms, such as:

If you’re new to kratom, you’ll likely be better off sticking with the ubiquitous and less expensive kratom powders. While the higher alkaloid concentrations and effects of these premium white vein kratom products might be enticing, extracts and enhanced varieties are generally better suited for experienced kratom buyers.
