White Elephant Kratom Effects

This kratom variety gives many health benefits. Its active compounds act on various tissues and affect various chemical and metabolic pathways in order to help improve health and quality of life.

The main benefits include the following:

Onset of pain-relieving effects are gradual. The good thing about this is that once the pain relief sets in, it lasts longer compared to most fast-acting OTC pain medications.

By using pregnenolone cream or pregnenolone supplements, the levels of the compound in the body increases, and this brings about various benefits such as fatigue relief, and delay of the aging process.
  • Relief from Body Pain
    This works as a great analgesic or pain-relief agent. It can reduce daily body aches effectively than most other over-the-counter (OTC) pain medications. It can reduce any type of acute pain, whether it’s from a health condition or from daily activities. Some users also reported adequate pain relief after cancer treatments like chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

  • Stress and Depression
    This kratom strain promotes relaxation of the mind and the body. This works well for relief of stress.

    This effect is also beneficial for people who deal with depression. It helps to keep the depressive thoughts at bay by relaxing the mind. Kratom works similarly to opioids but in a more natural way. The mitragyine active compound helps in producing this benefit.

    The relaxing effects are felt in 20-30 minutes after taking white elephant kratom and provides lasting relief. 
  • Better Brain Focus
    Productivity levels increase as brain focus and energy are improved. These effects of stimulant molecules in kratom are more potent than energy drinks or coffee. It is also better for the body as it does not interfere or injure the adrenal glands. This means energy levels are higher without causing the dreaded slump towards the end of the day.

    These effects are felt in a few minutes after taking white elephant kratom, whether in capsule or powder form. 

Which Alkaloids are Present in White Elephant Kratom?

There are yet to be more in-depth studies on the chemical composition of kratom, specifically white elephant. The leaves contain large amounts of an alkaloid called mitragynine and indole alkaloids. The indole alkaloids and mitragynine behave similarly to opioid medications in that these have the same affinity to the body’s opioid receptors.

White Elephant Kratom Dosage Recommendations

Always keep in mind that this strain produces its benefits with the right dosage and of course, high quality kratom. Taking too much or too frequently can lead to some uncomfortable negative effects.

To get the right dosage, consider first the form of kratom taken. Powder form requires more work to get the proper dosage. Taking it in capsule forms can be quite easier because each capsule already come with a premeasured dose of kratom.

There is no standard dosage for everyone to follow. Reactions to dosages are highly individual so it will take a few attempts to get the right one that works for you.

To be on the safe side, always start with the lowest dose.

For powder form, use a dedicated scale to measure. For capsule form, choose one with small doses and take only 1. Always check labels and recommendations when choosing capsules.

Typically, capsules are available in size 00 or 000. Size 00 capsules contain around 0.5 grams kratom powder per capsules. Size 000 contain 1 gram kratom powder each capsule.

Beginners should start with 2 grams per day. More than that and the experience will be more negative than beneficial. Start with 2 grams per day for the first few takes. Check how the body reacts. If the benefits are not experienced, increase in small increments and wait for a few intakes before adjusting the dose.

Average users can use 2.5 to 5 grams per day. Always assess how the body reacts to each intake before making any adjustments.

Heavy users can safely take 5-8 grams per day.

A small number of research and reviews found that 1-5 grams of kratom produces stimulant effects. Higher doses, ranging from 5 to 15 grams per day can produce sedative and pain-relief comparable to prescription opioid medications.

Origins of White Elephant Kratom

White elephant kratom is named for its big, droopy leaves that remind of large elephant ears. “White” refers to the white veins on its large leaves.

It is a very mature plant, which means that the leaves also contain a higher concentration of alkaloids. Hence, it is more potent than other kratom strains.

The kratom plant is a native evergreen tree that grows in the forests of some Asian countries. Examples are the forests of Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. Most of the elephant kratom trees natively grows in Indonesia and Thailand.

The white elephant strain has a scientific name, Mitragyna speciosa. This plant is related to the coffee plant. It shares a similar chemical and molecular structure with coffee. Both plants have high concentrations of beneficial types of alkaloids.
