Kratom, also known as Mitragyna Speciosa, is an evergreen tree that grows in the dense rainforests of Southeast Asia. The lush, humid climates allow these gigantic tree to flourish. The leaves are beautifully verdant, and they are what make this tree so special. Kratom leaves contain active alkaloids that produce a variety of effects when consumed. In fact, natives of Southeast Asia have been using Kratom as an herbal remedy for centuries! It may offer effects like energy, relaxation, discomfort relief, mood enhancement, and restful sleep that help day-to-day become a bit more manageable. 

Like many other plant species, there are dozens of different Kratom strains. While they are similar, each one has a few benefits that are distinct to that strain. The vein color and region that it originates from have a big impact on the resonation experience because the alkaloid content differs from strain to strain. So, it’s really helpful to know what they mean and what effects are associated with them. That way, you can make an educated decision without feeling too overwhelmed. 

In this article, we’re going to do a comprehensive overview of Borneo Kratom, discussing its various strains, effects, how to use it, and more. As we go through the topics, we hope to uncover the mystery of what makes Borneo Kratom strains so special and unique.


What is Borneo Kratom Used For?

Borneo strains certainly stand out from the bunch. They have a great reputation for potency, which makes sense when you browse lab results and compare the alkaline content. They have higher levels of Mitragynine than other Kratom strains. According to our research, the white and green Borneo varieties typically have the highest levels of Mitragynine. Due to the increased amounts, the effects from Borneo strains are noticeably powerful and often energizing! 


What are the benefits of Borneo Kratom?
  • May increase energy and motivation
  • May produce a happy well-being
  • May encourage a pro-social attitude 
  • May help relieve worry and overwhelming thoughts
  • Certain vein colors may help relax the mind and body

How to Use Borneo Kratom

To use Borneo Kratom, most people take the raw Kratom powder and brew it into a tea. Kratom Tea is quite easy to make, and you have the ability to customize it with various sweeteners and brewing techniques.

However, some people prefer taking Kratom Capsules instead. Capsules contain a measured amount of Kratom powder in a pill-like form. They are super convenient to carry with you when you’re out and about. Plus, since the Kratom powder is encapsulated, you don’t have to worry about the bitter flavor! The unpleasant bitter taste is a deal breaker for some. 


Borneo Kratom Strains and Their Benefits


White Borneo Kratom 

  • We call our White Borneo Kratom “Ghost Hippo”. This strain provides the most energy out of the entire Borneo bunch because it contains some of the highest levels of Mitragynine. White Borneo is best for keeping your mind at peace while you accomplish your to-do list. 

Green Borneo Kratom

  • Green Borneo Kratom, also known as “Happy Hippo I”, is a very versatile strain. I think the best word to describe it would be “balanced”. We typically say it’s the “best of both words”. This strain is great for relieving physical discomfort and making you feel content!

    Fun Fact: Happy Hippo I (Green Borneo) was the very first strain we ever started selling at Happy Hippo! It has held its ground through the test of time and remains a favorite Hippo classic. 

Red Borneo Kratom

  • Red Borneo Kratom (Happy Hippo II) uplifts your mood and helps combat negative thoughts - perfect for eliminating bad vibes! The resonation is similar to, but not the same as Green Borneo. However, the “Red” tones from this leaf make it less energizing and even more relaxing. 

Yellow Borneo Kratom

  • Yellow Borneo Kratom feels like a warm hug of comfort! That’s why we call ours “Snuggie Hippo”. This special Yellow strain is very unique and relaxing to the mind and body.

Chocolate Borneo Kratom

  • “Chocolate” Kratom strains are also known as Bentuangie Kratom, and unlike other Kratom strains, they go through a fermentation process. The fermentation creates a totally different experience. They provide ultimate relaxation and discomfort relief. The relaxation from Chocolate strains is so strong that it may even encourage restful sleep!

Borneo Kratom vs. Maeng Da Kratom

Maeng Da Kratom strains have a positive reputation for their high potency levels. They are extremely popular and one of the most sought after strains in the entire world! Borneo Kratom is definitely not as popular, but it’s comparable to Maeng Da in that the lab-testing shows Borneo Kratom to contain high levels of Mitragynine. While Maeng Da strains have a higher alkaline content overall, Borneo Kratom (specifically the Green and White varieties) is also proven to be very potent and it contains enough Mitragynine to rival them. 

All in all, Borneo and Maeng Da are quite potent and considered top-notch strains. We recommend trying out both kinds to see which one you like better.

Everyone’s experiences with Kratom are unique and personal, so, what we consider to be similar may not be exactly the same for you.
