Kratom Strains, Veins, & How To Know The Difference
Kratom strains derive their names from the specific regions where they are cultivated, offering insights into their origins and distinct characteristics. Strains such as Bali, Maeng Da Thai, Borneo, and Malaysian are named after the Southeast Asian regions where they originated. The vein color of the harvested leaves also plays a crucial role in distinguishing strains. Red vein kratom, with its deep red veins, is harvested from mature leaves. Green vein kratom, on the other hand, comes from younger leaves with vibrant green veins. White vein kratom falls in between, featuring veins that are neither fully mature nor completely young. Additionally, the more recent yellow vein kratom strains are a result of a unique small-batch curing process.

What Affects Alkaloid Content in Kratom and Other Plants?
Alkaloids are the active compounds in kratom, responsible for most of its effects. These compounds aren’t unique to kratom, though, and are a form of defense many plants use against predators. Because of this, some alkaloids aren’t good for humans. Humans regularly use many alkaloids, though, from quinine in tonic water (and some malaria treatments) to caffeine in your morning coffee.
Kratom’s alkaloids: Mitragynine & 7-OH
Understanding the intricate world of kratom alkaloids is essential to grasp the nuances of this remarkable plant. Mitragynine stands as the primary alkaloid in kratom, constituting just over two percent of the dry kratom leaf. While other alkaloids exist in kratom in trace amounts, they generally exhibit less activity compared to mitragynine. Among these alkaloids, a notable one is 7-hydroxymitragynine (commonly known as 7-OH), which occurs naturally in much lower concentrations within kratom leaves but possesses enhanced potency.
Kratom’s alkaloid content can change significantly depending on how the kratom is grown, where it is grown, and what the growth environment is like. Exploring these variables sheds light on the unique alkaloid profiles found in different kratom strains. To delve deeper into the world of kratom alkaloids, we invite you to explore our informative blog post dedicated to discussing the fascinating array of alkaloids found in kratom. This resource provides valuable insights into the specific alkaloids present in different strains and their potential effects.
It is crucial to dispel common misconceptions surrounding kratom and alkalinity. Contrary to popular belief, kratom cannot alkalize blood, regardless of how it is grown. Additionally, it is important to note that having an increased quantity of alkaloids or alkaline substances in the body does not inherently lead to improved health. The effects of kratom are complex and multifaceted, influenced by various factors, and individual experiences may vary.
