We probably sound like a broken record when we say -
Not all Kratom is equal. There is good Kratom and there is bad Kratom.
If you want to know where to buy Kratom online, keep reading! We have some valuable advice that will help guide you to your Kratom ‘happy place’.
Finding the perfect Kratom vendor isn’t as simple as it sounds. It takes a lot of research and careful consideration before you can feel comfortable enough to make a large purchase.
Some vendors claim to have the best quality Kratom, yet they aren’t certified by the American Kratom Association and cannot prove that they conduct quality control or lab-testing for their products. Cheap, low-quality Kratom can pose serious safety concerns for consumers. So, it’s incredibly important that you can actually trust the vendor you buy Kratom from.
In this article, we’re going to talk about Happy Hippo and the steps that we take as a company to ensure all of our Kratom is consistent, premium quality.
This advice comes from years of experience using Kratom daily. We’ve spent endless hours trying different Indonesian farmers - testing and studying all kinds of Kratom products. We consider ourselves Kratom experts, and we want to share our knowledge with you!
Before we go any further, let’s briefly discuss what Kratom is, why people use it, and how the various Kratom strains work.
What is Kratom?
Kratom refers to the leaves of the Mitragyna Speciosa tree that’s native to Southeast Asia. It resides comfortably in the tropical atmosphere of Indonesia, Bali, Malaysia, and other surrounding countries. Kratom can be found in a variety of strains determined by the vein color and the region they were grown.
This magical plant stands out amongst millions of other plant species because of the 40+ naturally occurring alkaloid compounds in Kratom leaves. The two most notable alkaloids are Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine.
Kratom leaves are carefully harvested and set out in the hot sun to dry. Once the Kratom leaves become dry and brittle, they get pulverized into a very fine powder. The Kratom powder is then consumed by means of Toss and Wash, used to make Kratom Tea, or manufactured into other Kratom products such as Kratom Extracts.
Why Do People Use Kratom?
People use Kratom for a multitude of reasons, here’s a few:
- Boosts your natural energy levels leaving you feeling motivated and productive (no yucky caffeine crash!)
- Stay focused and on task for longer periods of time
- Produces a happy mindset and positive attitude
- Relax and calm the mind and body
- Easing minor physical discomforts
- Promotes restful sleep
These restorative benefits come from the active alkaloids in Kratom. Taking full advantage, the natives of Southeast Asia have used Kratom as an herbal remedy for hundreds of years with great success.
The effects that are experienced are a result of the specific Kratom strain in combination with your Kratom Serving Size. However, everyone’s experience will be different. For example, whatever Kratom strain and serving size works best for me may not necessarily work the same for you.
Ultimately, it’s up to you to determine what strains and serving sizes work best for your personal needs. If you need guidance, feel free to reach out to us. We’re here to help you!
What Makes Kratom Strains Different?
Kratom strains are classified by their respective vein color and the region that they were grown.
The growth cycle of the Mitragyna Speciosa tree affects the overall alkaloid content. As the plant grows, the veins on the leaves change from white, to green, to red. These vein colors indicate a shift in the alkaloid profile. The effects you experience when using Kratom are a direct result of the unique alkaloid profile.
- White Vein Kratom typically has the highest levels of the Mitragynine alkaloid, making them best for providing energy and motivation.
Green Vein Kratom has a relatively balanced alkaloid profile and therefore provides balanced effects.
- Red Vein Kratom tends to contain 7-Hydroxymitragynine, which makes them more desirable for relaxation and physical discomfort relief.
There are nearly 40 unique alkaloids found in Kratom that cause subtle variations in the way a Kratom strain resonates between users. Classifying strains strictly by color doesn’t always tell the whole story.
Happy Hippo categorizes Kratom strains by “speed”. Energizing Kratom strains are considered “Fast”, relaxing Kratom strains are “Slow”, and Kratom strains that offer balanced effects are “Moderate”.
