Although most manufacturers and suppliers call it White Vein Indonesian, in regular Kratom circles this strain is known as White Vein Indo. It originates from the favorite Kratom plant of course, which is scientifically referred to as Mitragyna Speciosa. But the characteristic white veins on White Indo Kratom tree leaves set it apart from other strains like green and white.
The Kratom tree is a cousin of the coffee plant, which is why some of its strains show stimulant properties. White Indo Kratom, specifically, is quite rare when you compare it to other varieties, mostly because it has a high degree of alkaloid action. This is made possible by the climatic conditions of the area where the trees grow and also its unique white veins.
Where is This Strain Grown?
White Vein Indo Kratom is cultivated in Indonesia, where it grows abundantly in the jungle. However, in some cases, the trees tend to mix with other types of plants from neighboring regions like Borneo, hence the hybrid varieties of Kratom that we have available today.
But, as long as it grows in Indonesia, all Kratom strains offer similar benefits as they’re able to retain the same structure. Some suppliers are so proud of this fact that they even refer to this strain as True White Indo, to show customers that they’re buying the real thing.
How Popular is White Indo Kratom?
White Indo Kratom is rarer than other strains because white vein leaves are few and far between. As a result, it’s often difficult for most customers to find the right source or supplier of white Indo Kratom. But, if you look at message board threads and reviews online, you’ll find that it’s one of the most popular strains around.
White Indo Kratom is often referred to as Elephant Kratom by some manufacturers and suppliers. The name comes from the unusually large white veined leaves that produce this strain. White Indo Kratom leaves are usually jam-packed with beneficial alkaloids that offer potent healing prowess. It’s worth noting here that many Kratom advocates and experts say that Elephant Kratom is a fitting alternative for White Vein Thai for anyone that’s having a hard time sourcing the latter.
Main Benefits of White Indo Kratom
White Indo Kratom is known for its relaxing properties. The best part is that it’s not as intense as Maeng Da and other dominant strains which is probably why it’s so sought-after. White Indo Kratom is also a firm favorite among newbies as it makes for a great introduction to the herb for anyone that seeks alternative medicine for their health problems.
Some of the effects that you may expect to experience after taking White Indo Kratom include:
- Boosts Mood
- Reduces depression
- Reduces stress
- Provides an energy boost
- Improves memory
- Less fatigue
- Increases focus
- Improves cognitive function
Which Alkaloids Are Involved?
For the most part, Kratom tree leaves that are grown in Indonesia have a sedative effect, even if in different degrees. That’s why most people take them to boost mood and relieve pain. They have a very high amount of alkaloids.
Nevertheless, all white vein Kratom strains will increase energy levels while providing the same analgesic effects and Green Vein and Red Vein Indo. It’s worth noting also that White Indo Kratom is often compared to Red Vein Thai because it offers similar restorative effects.
If there’s one thing, you can be sure of it’s the fact that each Kratom tree leaf comes with a fair amount of beneficial alkaloids. But the concentration of such alkaloids will depend on factors such as the leaf’s vein color as well as the soil on which the tree was cultivated. Alkaloids will have a different effect on the human body depending on their exact profile on each strain. That’s why every Kratom strain offers a different combination of benefits, such as pain relief, increased focus or mental stimulation.
- White Indo Kratom has a high alkaloid content, on top of 25 chemical compounds that are endemic to the plant.
- One of the most well-known alkaloids is 7-hydroxymitragynine, which is quite abundant in white vein leaf Kratom. In such strains, you can also expect a high amount of Mitragynine compound as well.
- These alkaloids are a powerful combination that acts as an effective analgesic. Not only that but Mitragynine also contains adrenergic receptor agonist qualities.
Recommended Dosage of White Indo Kratom
There’s currently no scientific consensus on the correct Kratom dosage to take because there hasn’t been any significant scientific study on the Kratom plant. The information we have at present is based on anecdotal evidence from past and present users. Based on user experiences, it’s highly recommended to start with a small dosage at first and take it from there.
White Indo Kratom is not an analgesic actually, but it acts as a stimulant and can boost energy levels considerably. It also exhibits a sedative effect when taken in lower doses.
- For the best results, start with a dose of 1.5 to 2 grams. If you don’t feel anything within 45 minutes to an hour, you may increase the dose up to 3 grams. Its effects usually last about four hours which is plenty of time to get work done.
- As your body grows more tolerant over time, you may increase the dose to 4 to 6 grams, and the highest dose you can take is 8 grams.
- Remember to take White Indo Kratom responsibly and use it sparingly. It’s recommended not to take it more than five times per week. That way, you can still enjoy its effects without building up a tolerance to it.
White Indo Kratom comes highly recommended for beginners because it hits the middle way between strains that act too fast or too slow. It offers a moderate blend between sedative and euphoric effects and can power you for the day without getting a crash afterward like you would with coffee.
This strain comes with all the benefits you’d expect from a powerful Mitragyna Speciosa, but with a subdued intensity. It’s perfect for use during the day.
