White veined kratom is produced from young leaves that are harvested from the Mitragyna speciosa trees. With its varying alkaloids, White strains are truly a unique type of kratom. In this article, we will explore the White Vein Kratom.
What Is White Vein Kratom?
Mitragyna speciosa is native to Southeast Asia and is responsible for all kratom products. This tree also influences the color of the kratom that is harvested. Veins run throughout every kratom leaf. The color of the veins can differ depending on where the plants are grown, weather conditions, and more. Along with the kratom’s veins, its stems also indicate the product’s “color” variety.
White veined kratom is harvested early in its maturity. The leaves will then be dried indoors to lock in their alkaloid profiles. During this drying process, the leaves will not be exposed to any light. This will help keep the leaves color and not allow them to darken or deepen.
White vein kratom that is sold on the market is a product of this process. It is uniquely dried and this is what helps intensify the potency levels of its alkaloids. There are various colors to choose from when it comes to kratom. These include red, white, green, and yellow. Each will have its own set of properties and vary in the wellness support that they can offer you.
Always consult with a physician before starting any new type of substance. They are the only ones that can advise you on kratom. Please note that kratom is not used to treat, cure, or mitigate any disease, illness, ailment, and/or condition. Please see FDA import alert 54-15.

HOW IS WHITE VEIN KRATOM HARVESTED?
There is no difference between how white vein kratom and all the other types of kratom are harvested. They all go through the same initial process. Highly skilled farmers will harvest the leaves from the Mitragyna speciosa trees.
The leaves are cleaned with freshwater removing dirt and debris from the leaves. Doing so makes sure that the kratom is exceptionally clean and that dirt and debris don’t show up on any lab tests.
These farmers can manipulate the colors of the kratom leaves themselves. While farmers can keep the leaves as they are, many choose to experiment. They change and mix colors to create all sorts of interesting kratom leaf strains.
For example, farmers might collect a leaf with a white stem and veins. They may alter their drying technique and, thereby, create a strain that has characteristics of both white and red kratom leaves.
This drying process can be broken down into a couple of different phases. Firstly, the farmers make their way back to the farm and simply hang the leaves on a drying rack. Then, they either keep the leaves outside or move them inside. This choice makes a huge difference in the type of kratom leaf created. If left to absorb sunlight, the leaves’ chemical makeup is altered.
If moved indoors away from sunlight, the leaves essentially will have an entirely different chemical makeup from those left in the sun. From this process alone, you can create hundreds of varying strains of kratom based simply on how long they dry in the sun versus how long they spend in the shade.
There’s also a second drying process used fairly often by kratom farmers. Once leaves are brought back from the trees and onto the farm, the farmers have a decision to make. Do they place the leaves on a drying rack, or in a bag? Though this distinction might not sound that important, it makes all the difference in the world when it comes to the inner workings of the leaf.
Placing the kratom leaves in a bag guarantees that moisture doesn’t escape. Without any
release of moisture, the leaves go through a fermentation process. This process alters the chemical makeup of the leaves.
After the drying process concludes, the farmers take the kratom leaves and ground them up into a fine powder. Some farms do this by hand, but many now use industrial-sized machines to grind their product. The ground-up kratom powder is then shipped out of the country and onto store shelves around the world.
HOW DOES WHITE VEIN KRATOM WORK?
In essence, the fundamental differences between each kratom strain are determined by its alkaloids. At its most basic level, an alkaloid is a natural compound found in a variety of products and plants. Some famous alkaloids are caffeine and morphine.
Two of the most prominent alkaloids in kratom leaves are 7-hydroxy mitragynine and mitragynine. The number of these alkaloids present in each leaf determines how the body reacts. The drying process, fermentation, and amount of sunlight affect the alkaloid counts.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT STRAINS OF WHITE VEIN KRATOM?
Many combinations (or strains) of white vein kratom are available for purchase. Each contains a different alkaloid combination.
Here are just some of the most popular white vein kratom strains on the market.
WHITE BALI KRATOM
Hailing from Borneo, one of the obvious ways this kratom leaf stands out from the others is its size. It’s larger than your average kratom leaf. Many farmers are able to spot it on the tree with ease.
The alkaloids found in this strain are clustered in high concentrations. This means that it may interact with your body more intensely than other kratom forms.
In terms of popularity, white Bali kratom is one of the more sought-after strains on the market. Many people combine it with red Bali. This strain has as many as 25 alkaloids present, with a high concentration of mitragynine, among others. This means that the kratom may interact with your body differently from strains that carry lower doses of mitragynine. White Bali kratom also contains less ajmalicine than other strains.
WHITE SUMATRA KRATOM
Western Indonesia is home to the island where the white Sumatra strain of kratom comes from. The Sumatra island has many of the mitragyna speciose trees, making it a haven for kratom farmers looking to harvest. The terrain is a bit rougher than most, which affects the kratom leaves. This can alter the leaves’ alkaloid content, as well as their coloration.
White Sumatra kratom contains a low amount of 7-hydroxy mitragynine as compared to other colors of kratom. This strain contains high amounts of mitragynine. It also contains less ajmalicine than other strains. Because of its unique makeup and the special aroma, it emits, white Sumatra is considered one of the more popular strains to buy.
WHITE MAENG DA KRATOM
Grown in Indonesia, the white vein Maeng Da strain of kratom has many characteristics similar to other white vein kratom leaves. It also contains a high alkaloid count as compared to the red, green, and yellow/gold varieties.
Mostly, white kratom results from manual manipulation by the harvesters. Many times, farmers keep these leaves from being exposed to sunlight. Low light and an elongated drying process either preserve the white veins or morph differently-colored veins into white ones. As with dark leaves, spotting white kratom leaves naturally has never been easier.
WHITE HORN KRATOM
The unique names of kratom leaves usually indicate something specific about the leaves themselves. For instance, the name may designate where the leaf originates. On the other hand, some strains are named for their appearances.
For example, White Horn Kratom leaves are given this name because of the leaf’s unusual design, which looks like horns. Easy to spot in the wilderness, these are a prized commodity in the kratom community.
White Horn Kratom has a pungent aroma that is impossible for farmers to miss. Along with its unique smell, it has a distinct taste, as well.

DOES KRATOM WORK FOR EVERYONE?
It’s impossible to answer this question with a definite “yes” or “no.” As with any ingestible product, the alkaloids react with your body in some way, shape, or form. That being said, is there a definite outcome for everyone who has tried it? Absolutely not. It all comes down to cautious experimentation.
