The family of Mitragyna Speciosa can be divided into three different strains, namely Red-vein, Green-vein and White-vein. Those different strains vary in their chemical composition and thus will have different physical and mental effects.
The fine white kratom powder emerges from the leaves with the white colored stem and veins. However about 75% – 85% of the green and white named strains are made of red veined leaves and maintain their color through specific drying processes.
Thanks to over 25 potent alkaloids (= organic compounds in plants that have physiological effects on humans) in the kratom leaf, an elevated mood, focus and motivation are experienced with this vein.
Contrary to the red veins which are known for their sedating effects, the white veins are famous for the most energizing and euphoric outcomes. An increase of energy and cheerfulness goes with focus, concentration and motivation. A mix of red and white kratom can lead to a more balanced energy boost.
Keep in mind that the dosage is likewise determining the beneficial impact on mind and body as well as the choice of strain. The alkaloid content of the leaves differs in quantity depending on the geographical location and harvest time. As a result there exist different geographical variants within the same strain. The White Borneo will give you a bit more concentration and focus whereas the White Sumatra offers more energy and uplifting mood.
In all, the White-vein is described as offering more energy, focus and motivation and will help you through the day to get things done. You should not miss out on the gentle kick this vein will give you!
