Red vein Malay kratom is considered one of the most enduring strains of Kratom with many purported benefits. This variant of Kratom originally comes from Malaysia- the leading exporter of Kratom with warm, sunny, and humid forests, later spreading to other parts of the world. Kratom farms spanning much of Southeast Asia are now able to produce their own version of this strain which is on par with Malaysia’s best Kratom crop.
Production And Processing Techniques
The journey of Kratom leaves from a budding plant to a finished product can be lengthy, involving different production and processing techniques. Kratom farmers have to carefully track the life cycle of the Kratom tree.
The harvest time and drying techniques used are really important in the life cycle of the Kratom tree to produce a desirable product.
Post-harvest treatment of Kratom leaves is equally crucial for it will eventually determine the color of the strain and the associated alkaloid profile.
First and foremost, fresh red vein malay kratom leaves are harvested by experienced farmers from thick rainforests of Malaysia, which has an ideal climate that plays a significant role in the growth of Kratom trees, just at the right time when the Kratom leaves have reached maturity.
They are then washed to remove dirt and dust and spread out in large racks outdoors to help them soak plenty of sunlight following traditional drying methods in the next step. Farmers and producers also use UV lights to dry or cure Kratom leaves. After this, the leaves are primed to be crushed into a fine powder using a mortar or pestle or some advanced agricultural machinery. After ensuring that the powder is free from harmful contaminants or fillers through screening and lab tests, it is packaged as capsules or extracts or powder to preserve their potency and purity for retail sales.
Other Ways To Produce Red Malay Kratom
Artificial techniques are being employed by farmers who are dedicated to growing and harvesting top-quality Kratom leaves in other Kratom producing countries and countries outside of the Southeast Asia region. They mimic the native climate conditions and farming practices adopted in Malaysian farms to produce Red Vein Malay Kratom with utmost care.
However, large-scale cultivation of Kratom outside the tree’s native region of Southeast Asia can be challenging as Kratom is intolerant to colder temperatures and frost and thrive only in hot and humid climates. Hence, the majority of the world imports authentic Kratom from Southeast Asia.
Red Vein Malay Kratom is widely available in the form of powder but it is also available in capsule and extract forms providing customers with various ways to purchase and consume their favorite Kratom strains.
Since the concentration of the active compounds having a strong effect on the body and mind, such as alkaloids and oxidants differ from one Kratom strain to another, Red Vein Malay Kratom is no exception. It has comparatively least mitragynine and the most 7-hydroxy mitragynine. Along with these vital alkaloids, other compounds are also present in it but in tiny amounts.
Red Vein Malay Kratom Dosage
The appropriate dose of kratom depends on several factors including the user’s age, health, tolerance level. As even users with similar needs may react differently to a given amount of dose.
Since there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for Kratom, it is imperative for newbies to follow the instructions provided on the packaging of the product to avoid running into any problems.
Taking a small dose of 1 to 2 grams is recommended if you are a beginner to see how body and mind react to it as tolerance level and reaction differ from person to person. You can increase the dose over time up to 5 grams if you have adjusted to the initial dose. Experienced users can ingest up to 8 grams but going beyond that can lead to undesirable results.
It is also not advisable to consume it on a daily basis because the body can develop tolerance to it leading to unfavorable side effects on its users. While kratom is considered safe to take, do not consume too much at one time.
Ways Of Consumption
Red Vein Malay Kratom can be consumed in a variety of ways from leaves to powder to capsules to extracts depending on the user’s preference to have first hand experience with Kratom products.
- It can be either smoked or chewed as gum.
- It can be consumed as a powder, mixed with a drink or smoothie. When used in powder form, it is quickly absorbed by the body.
- It can be brewed as a beverage such as tea. However, in this process, the efficiency of the leaves is likely to reduce due to extreme boiling which affects the chemical makeup of leaves.
- It can be taken as capsules with water which is convenient and the most preferred method due to the pre-measured dose. In this case, however, the results are not manifested immediately due to the gelatine shell containing the Kratom powder.
If you are thinking of trying out Kratom products, you should speak with a professional healthcare provider first to know if this strain would be suitable for you.
