For thousands of years, Kratom has been cultivated in countries like Malaysia and Thailand, and others throughout Southeastern Asia. Recently, Kratom, also known as Mitragyna Speciosa, has seen a rise in popularity in the Western Hemisphere.
Because of its increasing popularity, we want to make sure that Kratom enthusiasts like you have all the information you need about this miracle botanical…Starting with everything you need to know about one of the most popular varieties…Green Malay Kratom!
So, if you are ready to learn more…Let’s get started!
Understanding the Botanical
Before we jump into the specifics of Green Malay Kratom, you must understand what Kratom is…and what it is not! Kratom is a tropical evergreen tree whose leaves are harvested and cured to create Kratom powder. Cultivators of the plant pick the leaves and cure them in ways that affect their potency.
The leaves of the plant contain powerful alkaloids responsible for the highly sought-after effects of the Kratom plant. Kratom is 100% all-natural and does not contain any synthetic material. Contrary to some sources, Kratom is not an Opiate!
Variety: Strains and Veins
Kratom is generally labeled and sold with a name that indicates the Strain and Vein of the Kratom. There are three sometimes four different Veins: Green, Red, White, and sometimes Yellow/Gold. There is an endless number of Strains of Kratom, but here are some ways you might see it labeled:
- Green Vein Maeng Da
- Red Vein Borneo
- Green Malay
- Red Vein Elephant
- White Vein Thai
- Gold Bali
These are just a few of the many examples of how you might find your Kratom labeled. The Strain (Maeng Da, Thai, Elephant, etc.) generally indicates the country of origin or the strain variant of the Kratom. For example, Elephant Kratom gets its name due to the large Elephant ear shape of The Strain, and Malay Kratom gets its name because of its origin.
As far as the Vein color is concerned, there is some debate on the subject…In the wild, Green, Red, and White Vein Kratom trees grow in native countries such as Malaysia; however, modern Kratom cultivators use the Vein color to describe the process by which the Kratom was cured.
For example, Green Vein Kratom is generally harvested and then cured with a mix of indoor and outdoor lighting. Red Vein Kratom is usually dried entirely outdoors, and White Vein Kratom is almost always dried indoors under UV light. The different curing styles affect the alkaloid content of the Kratom, resulting in different effects.
Kratom contains over forty different alkaloids. The alkaloids Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine do not occur anywhere in nature other than within the Kratom plant. So, why does this matter? We are glad you asked!
All Kratom, including Green Malaysian Kratom, has varying levels of these alkaloids. Now, because of legal restrictions, we cannot discuss the effects or benefits of Kratom; however, we can inform you on what alkaloids are and what they do…Do you get us?
Alkaloids are naturally occurring organic compounds that have profound effects on animals. Some of the benefits of alkaloids include the following qualities:
These are just a few of the effects that alkaloids have on animals. Studies show that Green Malay Kratom has a higher concentration of alkaloids than other varieties making it a favorite among Kratom enthusiasts.
Types of Green Malay Kratom
Green Malay Kratom is available in a wide array of styles. Generally, after Kratom is cured, it is ground into a fine powder and then sold wholesale. From there, Kratom is either sold as a powder, or it is transformed into the following options:
These are just a few of the popular ways you might find Green Malay Kratom. In many cases, Kratom enthusiasts will buy Kratom powder and then choose to encapsulate it themselves. Click here to read more on creating your own Kratom capsules!
Buying Green Kratom Strains
Generally, Green Vein Kratom Strains are regarded as solid Strains that are good for beginners and enthusiasts alike. With the exception of a few states and cities, Kratom is readily available for purchase in-store and online. So, which is the better option, Online or in-store?
For us, we believe that it is not only safer to purchase online…It’s far more convenient! When you find a reputable purveyor online, you can browse dozens of products, read reviews, read up on informative blog posts, and more, all from the convenience of your home. In many cases, online vendors will offer guarantees on quality and safety that in-store shops cannot match.
With that being said, it is important to understand that you must find a reputable and trusted source to purchase your Kratom online! Not all Kratom is created with the same standard, so if you purchase from the wrong vendor, you risk buying Kratom that has been tainted with harmful binders, fillers, synthetics, and other adulterants.
Like we said before, real Kratom is 100% all-natural and should never be mixed with any other product. Additionally, do your best to find a purveyor that does third-party lab testing or some other form of quality control to ensure that the Kratom you are buying is safe.
