Whether you are experienced with kratom or considering the herb for the first time, this post has something for you. We will begin with an introduction to Mitragyna speciosa and the general qualities of green kratom powder.
What is Green Kratom Powder?
Green kratom powder is a product containing the powdered leaves of green vein Mitragyna speciosa (kratom) trees. Kratom originates in Southeast Asia, where it has been used for centuries, and consists of indole alkaloids like mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragyine (7-HMG).
Companies sell green kratom powder in resealable, food-grade pouches, keeping the substance as fresh and potent as possible for consumers. Most users find that green vein kratom generates effects in-between red and white vein kratom.
Why Choose Green Kratom Powder?
Since green vein kratom is known for its well-balanced characteristics, strains of this color work well in most situations. Maybe you want a morning kratom hit or a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Or perhaps you want a kratom to chill out with after hours? Green kratom powder can do it all!
If the energizing traits of white vein kratom leave you with a bout of jitterbugs, green kratom may be a better match. And if red kratom strains make you more happy and euphoric than you would like, you might have a more manageable experience with green kratom.
Advantages of Kratom Powder
The kratom industry has seen plenty of innovation in two or three short decades - a quick look at the massive Kratom Monkey product range will show you that! But with so many product options nowadays, why should you stick with the humble kratom powder?
Variety of Uses
Some users have a preferred consumption method, while others enjoy chopping and changing. If you lean toward the latter, you will love kratom powder! Brewing kratom-infused tea, making edibles, embracing the traditional ‘toss and wash’ method - with powder, you can do all three!
Value for Money
Green kratom powder is easier on your wallet than other kratom products. After all, the manufacturing process is as simple as filling a bag with powder, hence why brands can get the finished product to you for less!
Unless you need the convenience offered by another product, kratom powder is your best option to save a few dollars. And the more kratom you buy, the cheaper the cost per gram!
How to Use Green Kratom Powder
There are so many ways to enjoy kratom powder. Let’s delve deeper into some of the most common ones.
Toss and Wash
Think kratom powder, think ‘toss and wash’. Scooping kratom powder into your mouth and swallowing it with water is a classic, no-frills way of consuming Mitragyna speciosa. But prepare to face the wrath of the herb’s harsh, sharp flavor!
Top tip: Tackle kratom’s taste by adding sweetener to the water or using juice instead.
Not convinced by tossing and washing? Brewing kratom tea is less messy, better tasting, and still excellent at delivering those fast-acting effects you need.
You have two options: brewing your beverage from scratch or making “instant” kratom tea.
The first method requires simmering water on a stove, stirring in the kratom powder, and straining the tea before drinking. It’s time-consuming but super-effective at extracting kratom’s active alkaloids from the powder.
Instant kratom tea involves filling a disposable tea bag with kratom powder and soaking it in a cup of hot water. This efficient approach is ideal if you don’t have the time or means to brew kratom tea traditionally. And you can still mix in sweeteners and potentiators.
Homemade Capsules, Edibles, and Tinctures
It’s unconventional, but aficionados wanting to play around with making kratom capsules, edibles, and tinctures will need kratom powder to do so!
Why bother? Well, maybe you want to experiment with blending kratom strains. Perhaps you would like to infuse capsules with a potentiator. Or how about making kratom ice cream just because you can! Pick up a bag of powder or two and get creative with your kratom use!
Explore the Green Kratom Powder Range at Kratom Monkey!
We stock more than 10 green kratom powder strains at Kratom Monkey, including Horn, Indo, Sumatra, Thai, and Vietnam. But let’s look at three of the best-known green vein strains.
Malay kratom is much-loved for its balanced properties, and no strain displays these better than the delightful Green Malay. Sourced from Malaysia, this premium kratom delivers energizing and peaceful effects, making it ideal for all hours of the day.
Green Maeng Da
While Green Maeng Da boasts the balanced qualities typical of this kratom color, the punchy potency ensures it’s a hard-hitter. If you are a regular kratom user seeking an extra edge to your green vein experiences, be sure to try this version of Maeng Da kratom powder.
This kratom gets its name from its leaf shape, which looks remarkably like an elephant’s ear! Effects-wise, expect an elevating energy boost and happy sensations without the jitterbugs associated with more stimulating kratoms.
Is Green Kratom Powder Legit?
Green kratom powder is genuine, but whether you are purchasing a legitimate product depends on the vendor you buy from. So, it’s a good thing you are here at Kratom Monkey!
It’s our mission to bring the kratom industry’s finest brands into one easy-to-navigate store. From our collection of premium, own-branded products to those from respected names like Kats Botanicals and O.P.M.S. Kratom, we have you covered for authentic Mitragyna speciosa.
But what makes great green kratom? Third-party lab testing plays an essential role. Until the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the market or the Kratom Consumer Protection Act is passed everywhere, we will need independent labs to check products are up to scratch.
Third-party laboratories determine a product’s authenticity by analyzing kratom purity and potency. A thorough contamination check ensures there are no harmful bacteria, pathogens, or heavy metals lingering, while the potency analysis confirms the alkaloid levels are as stated.
Your green kratom powder should come sealed in an airtight bag. Never use kratom that arrives opened or in damaged packaging - it could be adulterated or contaminated.
