What Is Borneo Kratom?
Red Vein Borneo
The most popular of the three strains of Mitragyna Speciosa is the Red Vein Borneo. It may have gained its vast popularity due to its high levels of alkaloids naturally found in the leaves compared to the other two strains of Mitragyna Speciosa. Specifically, Red Vein Borneo has a high percentage of 7-Hydroxymitragynin, Speciogynine, and 9-Hydroxycorynantheidine, which are the alkaloids known for being an analgesic. These alkaloids play a large role in relieving pain. Other alkaloids include Corynoxine A and Corynoxine B, which are the dopamine mediators responsible for the improving mood and reducing anxiety. This is beneficial for the people who suffer from stress or anxious thoughts.
The Red Vein Borneo tends to last around 4 to 6 hours. Red Vein Borneo has a more potent alkaloid level than the other Mitragyna Speciosa at the early stages of growth. The result of this is a more distinct and pungent aroma than other Mitragyna Speciosa. The smell is very distinguishable making Red Vein Borneo even more unique.
Green Vein Borneo
Green Vein Borneo has both the analgesic properties of the Red Vein Borneo and the stimulant properties of the White Vein Borneo, making it a well-balanced Mitragyna Speciosa. Although the properties are not as strong as the other two strains, the moderate effects make for a harmonious blend. The main alkaloids contained in Green Vein Borneo include 7-Hydrocymitragynine, 9-Hydroxycorynantheidine, Mitragynine, Mitraphylline, and Speciogynine. These alkaloids link together and connect to the pituitary glands in the brain, making the user feel numb. This numbness leads to the receptors in the brain releasing oxytocin and endorphins making one feel euphoric and energized. However, too much will result in over stimulation of the pain receptors in the brain, hence the body will start shutting down making the user experience the feelings of sedation.
Other specific benefits include a boost in energy levels, mood lift, relief from pain in joints, muscles or bones, and migraines.
White Vein Borneo
The White Vein Borneo is normally the least popular of the Mitragyna Speciosa. It is recommended for fatiguing and tiring situations where one needs to stay focused and want a boost in energy. The white vein has a higher amount of mitragynine and lower amount of 7-hydroxymitragynine. Therefore, because of its low amounts of analgesic properties, it is not suitable for pain killing compared to the Red Vein Borneo and Green Vein Borneo. On the bright side, White Vein Borneo provides the user energy without the symptoms of jitters or sweating that caffeine usually offers. Kratom users usually take it in the morning as it will generally last throughout the day.
Overall, the high demand from the West was the reason to why farmers go extreme lengths to find and cultivate the best quality Kratom. With the knowledge they gained, the Borneo Kratom has been cultivated and cared for by experienced growers in Indonesia. The practices to tend the trees and harvest the leaves are only some of the processes that took many years to deliver the quality of Borneo Kratom that one sees today.
