White kratom is one of the most potent kratom strains of all the significant types, and it is not recommended for beginners. The strain is sourced from the mature trees, and veteran farmers in Southeast Asia harvest it and dry it. The leaves are green with white veins running through them. It is referred to as Bali white kratom, not because of its final product but its original leaves. The most quality white Bali kratom comes from Sumatra and Borneo.
Origin of White Bali Kratom
Mitragyna speciosa is part of the Rubiaceae family found in the sub-tropical areas of Southeast Asia. The tree is found in the rainforests, where the soils are fertile. Kratom trees can grow up to 15 meters high and spread over 4.5meters. The stem is straight and branching; its flowers are yellow; the leaves are dark glossy green. It sheds off its leaves during the dry seasons, while in the rainy season, there is plentiful growth.
Some people believe that the white vein Bali kratom is grown in Borneo and not on Bali’s island. The name Bali was because the Bali kratom was transported to international markets through the port of Bali. The strain is popularly known for its high stimulant effect. White Bali kratom is sometimes used to substitute coffee. Taking white Bali kratom is not advisable for late hours of the day as it can lead to a sleepless night.
White vein kratom is harvested at the leaf tender age and is characterized by white veins in the middle. The white kratom leaves are dried indoors to ensure that they do not lose their color.
White Bali Kratom Alkaloids Profile
White Bali kratom has over 25 active alkaloids isolated. The alkaloid level in kratom leaves varies depending on the region the strain is grown, time of the month it is harvested, and the harvesting and procession period. The content can vary from the same tree due to environmental and human factors such as the time of harvest about the dry season.
Usually, the highest mitragynine concentration is present in trees that are harvested frequently. This is because, during the dry seasons, the tree produces a lot of mitragynine and other alkaloids; when the rain comes, the buds sprouting all these alkaloids are deposited into the leaves. Also, mitragyna speciosa produces mitragynine and many other alkaloids as a defiance mechanism to keep away animals that may eat from its leaves. If the leaves are not harvested, they do not produce alkaloids, but if the leaves are harvested frequently, they produce more alkaloids to deter them from feeding.
- Mitragynine: this is the primary alkaloid in white Bali kratom, and it is responsible for most of the impacts. It makes up roughly 66% of the total alkaloid in the leaf.
- Paynantheine: makes the second most abundant alkaloid content in the leaf, with an average of 9%.
- Speciogynine: Third most abundant alkaloid content making up to 7% of the leaf’s total alkaloid.
- 7-hydroxymitragynine: Fourth most abundant alkaloid making up to 2% of the total kratom alkaloid, and it also plays a crucial role in bringing about the significant effects of kratom white strain.
- Mitraphylline oxindole alkaloid: It makes up to 1% of the total leaf alkaloid content.
- Cilaphylline: It also makes 1% of the total leaf alkaloid content.
- Other minor alkaloids found in white Bali kratom include corynanthidine, akuammigine, ajmalicine, rhynchophylline, Isomitraphylline, corynoxeine, epicatechin, 9-hydroxycorynantheidine, isomitrafoline.
Processing of White Bali Kratom
Handpicking White Bali Kratom
When the leaves are fully mature, they are harvested; the leaves are handpicked carefully.it requires farmers with vast experience to get this right. Not all the leaves are picked; the farmers will avoid pre-mature leaves and too old ones to ensure that they get kratom of high quality.
After harvesting, the farmers sort the leaves and get rid of pests, overgrown, or the ones not mature enough. After sorting, the farmers clean the leaves in running water to get rid of sand and dirt.
Drying the white Bali kratom
Initially, the leaves were dried in the sun. The modern farmers believe sun-drying drains essential content from the leaves and also exposes them to contaminants. The leaves are dried indoors using dehydrator trays until they are crispy and ready for the next step.
Grinding is done three times to ensure that a fine powder is achieved. Then the powder is sieved and preserved in tight containers for transportation.
Testing the Purity of White Bali Kratom
Kratom comes from leaves harvested by farmers in Indonesia, where there is no quality test carried out. There have been claims of some farmers in Indonesia milling kratom in open places and shelters with chicken and other livestock. Sometimes the leaves are dried in open places, exposing them to contaminants such as insects and birds. This leads to the transportation of kratom contaminated with dangerous contaminants such as E. coli and salmonella. During transportation, the kratom may be contaminated with harmful metals like lead. Sometimes the kratom is not packed well and arrives at vendors with rips and tears resulting in leaking.
The absence of proper quality control in Indonesia is leading to significant concerns in the USA. Thousands of distributors operate from their apartments, garages, or homes without proper equipment to handle or test their kratom. The vendors receive kratom in large boxes, and they divide it and pack in small containers and distribute them to consumers without doing quality tests.
Kratom vendors should implement the GMP test initiated by the FDA to ensure that they release pure white Bali kratom. This is important since the kratom exported from Indonesia is in a raw form, and most of it does not meet standard food safety. If a kratom vendor implements the GMP quality process, it can eliminate the risks of contamination.
