White vein kratom is the category of kratom to which all white strains belong. Each strain is harvested from majority white vein leaves, meaning the leaves that were harvested for the batch have a whitish stem and vein color. The veins themselves don’t necessarily influence the color of the powder for any given strain as the color of all leaves is green. The drying process, soil content, and maturity of the leaves harvested can impact the color of the powder.
White strains are said to be the most stimulating of the three veins because of the balanced alkaloid content. It is less likely to cause commonly reported wobbles and nausea; however, the chance of experiencing jitteriness may be higher. For that reason, it is the preferred morning routine vein for most of our customers. Any calming agent like powdered chamomile may be a perfect addition to it!
Premium White Strains
Premium strains are sifted to exclude stems/veins and are ground to a finer consistency. Since majority of the alkaloids are concentrated in the leaf itself, and the surface area of each powder grain determines their accessibility, they are also much more potent. Please, keep this and reported biphasic effects of Kratom in mind when you decide to upgrade to them. The less is more!
