Hi Hippo Friend!


You're not likely to be around a campfire at this moment.

But if you can close your eyes and pretend, perhaps you can taste the s'mores and hear the crackle of burning wood and faint whispers of a...

... Happy undefinable, and fleeting...

~Friendly Ghost Hippo!~

What Is White Vein Borneo Kratom (Ghost Hippo) and Why Do People Think It's Special?

White Vein Borneo Kratom (Ghost Hippo) is a friendly-spirit and a favorite among long-time Happy Hippo customers.

Aside from White Borneo Kratom simply being an amazing kratom strain, it serves a specific purpose that makes it unique (and super useful to a select group).

About 30% of customers simply do not do well or respond at all to the "Fast" Maeng Da or Thai strains, but still want a Kratom Leaf that makes them super productive and enthusiastic.

That is where White Borneo (Ghost Hippo) comes in.

Ghost Hippo is a Moderate strain that leans slightly Fast.

The balanced alkaloids are often a perfect "Moderate-Fast-BUT-NOT-TOO-FAST" strain for those who get the Jitterbugs from true Fast kratom leaf.

If this sounds like you - you may just love White Borneo Kratom.

White Borneo Kratom Powder is ideal for those who want to be productive/enthusiastic but don't do well on the Fast strains.

White Borneo is one of those kratom strains that makes you enthusiastically clean your room, gather sticks for the fire or do things you otherwise may find to be a hassle - without concern of getting those jitterbugs in the Mind or Body!

(You may know what We mean!)

White Borneo is a great kratom for energy, without going overboard.

This is what makes White Borneo especially appealing.

Consequently, White Vein Borneo is often a staple in many long-time customer's Kratom Rotation.


Puddles' Hippo Pro-Tip

If you can handle the Fast Strains with ease and are looking for a calculated "boost" — we would recommend a small or medium-sized cup of Caffeinated Coffee to go hand-in-hand with your serving of White Vein Borneo (Ghost Hippo) Kratom Powder.

Don't forget that White Borneo falls into the "best of both worlds" category, or the Moderate Strain Category. As long as you do not over-stimulate the aroma with too-much Caffeine, the subtle increased sense of well-being that naturally comes from White Borneo will continue to balance and mediate your overall measure of energy.


The History of White Vein Borneo (Ghost Hippo)

You may remember an old-school, legacy Kratom Strain by the simple brand name of "White Hippo".

(We were forced to take it off the proverbial Hippo Shelf due to Puddles' sailboat carrying White Hippo sinking OR THE SUPPLIER BASICALLY DISAPPEARING INTO THIN AIR)

Thanks to its disappearance - White Vein Borneo (Ghost Hippo) came into prominence early-Summer of 2018. We have far more positive feedback on this strain than we ever had for the defunct "White Hippo".

Out with the Old Batch : In with the New Batch (Same Supplier).


Closing Thoughts

It's getting late and the camp-fire is dwindling.

We recommend all of our Happy Hippo Kratom Strains. We honestly believe each of them are at least Above-Average.

Based on internal Hippo statistics, however, White Vein Borneo (Ghost Hippo) Kratom Powder, is a strain we know many newer customers have not tried.

Most customers looking for productivity and enthusiasm will usually try the traditional Maeng Da's and Thai's first.

If yo're dipping your toe into the "best of both worlds" Moderate Strain Category, White Vein Borneo (Ghost Hippo) is for you.

Especially if you'd like to lean towards the benefits of Fast Strains, but you get those dang Jitterbugs!

Best wishes and Happy thoughts to you and your's.

Hello! I have been a kratom user for about 3 and a half years or so now, and I love it!! Although I have tried many strains, there are so MANY that I have NOT tried yet! I am a brand-new customer to HAPPY Hippo kratom brand, though. I am finding you guys’ forums and websites EXTREMELY helpful in my search for new strains to try. Thank you!!!


Thank you for being so helpful. Red Hot Hippo is my favorite but all the strains are great.


Your quite welcome Granny/Sally/Adele!!! Yes, Puddles’ Potion will present as a moderate to most Hippos. Puddles’ Potion presents as an energizing, pro-social, mood enhancing, discomfort reducing blend that spreads massive good vibes to Hippos everywhere. They sold alot of Puddles Potion and ran low on the Rhino and started substituting a White Indo. While this change of Obi’s original formula didn’t make Obi a Happy Hippo, I understand the dilemma at Hippo HQ. Hopefully, you got the original Obi Recipe. But, don’t worry Granny if you didn’t, you can make it yourself. It is a simple blend of 60% Ghost and 40% White Rhino. I would expect Happy Hippo to have a run on these two strains in the future as Hippo’s everywhere exhaust their limited Special Edition Puddles’ Potion supply and clamor for more Ghost/Rhino to now make their own. It was nice of Happy Hippo to divulge the recipe when they released the blend, as Obi only provided this long held secret recipe to Puddles, who when providing it to the staff saw how the Hippo staff danced and sang (some even vogued) all through their long and tiring workday. Seeing their joy and realizing that he could no longer keep the recipe a secret, he released Puddles’ Potion to the world, thus making Halloween 2019 an epic time in the annals of Happy Hippo history.

So, what resonates with you Granny/Sally/Adele? Do you prefer moderates, slow, or fast strain/blends? We know you like the Mellow Yellow. I am hoping Puddles finally does the blog on blends so everyone can contribute their favorites.

PS-Did you see Puddles reaction when he first encountered Puddles Potion this Halloween?? If not please go to the Happy Hippo facebook page (as Puddles is afraid to post it on YouTube) and look for the Puddles Dance video. It is amazing!! It is as if Puddles is possessed by the spirit of Mikhail Baryshnikov. This Hippo apparently has many hidden talents!!!!


Obi Wan. Just wanted to thank you for your generosity of your special blend. I am a different resonator and I definitely got a moderate resonating experience. I love this experience. You may get my email and any suggestions appreciated. God bless you and again thank you for giving back


WOnderful strain, although tolerance is easily built. i burn 1/2tsp to 1 tsp per dose. I also cycle to keep tolearance as low as possible. Have to say this is on of the cleanest burns ive had so far. right on the comfort zone of bliss, with a clean energy. Thumbs up to Ghost Hippo.
