What Is the Strongest Kratom?
If you are new to the world of Kratom or have even tried a few different strains, you might wonder what the strongest Kratom is. This question isn’t as cut and dry as it may seem. We must first understand what Kratom is and how it works to answer this question.
Kratom is an evergreen tree that is related to the coffee family. It is native to Southeast Asia and has been used for centuries by indigenous people for its medicinal properties. The kratom leaves are dried and crushed into a powder, which can be taken orally or made into tea. Kratom powder can also be taken in capsule form.
The effects of kratom can vary greatly depending on the dose, the strain, your physiologic response, and other factors.
The primary active compounds in kratom leaves are mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. These compounds similarly affect the brain as opioids, but kratom is not an opioid itself. Kratom is thought to bind to the same brain receptors as opioids but with much weaker effects.
The Three Types of Kratom
The effects of kratom can also vary depending on the strain. There are three main kratom strains: red, white, and green. The different colors refer to the different vein colors of the leaves.
Red Vein Kratom
The red vein kratom plant leaves are red in color, hence its name. Red vein kratom is known for its sedative and relaxing effects, making it a popular choice for those looking to wind down after a long day. It is also said to promote better sleep and alleviate pain, coming with the highest amount of 7-hydroxymitragynine of the three strains.
White Vein Kratom
The White Vein Kratom plant has leaves with white veins running through them. White Vein Kratom is the most energizing of the three strains. If you want a kratom strain that will help you get through your day with more energy and focus, white vein kratom is the way to go.
Green Vein Kratom
Green Vein Kratom leaves are, you guessed it, green in color. It sits somewhere between the other two kratom strains, offering sedative and energizing effects. If you are looking for a kratom strain that will give you the best of both worlds, green vein kratom would be our go-to choice.
While these are the three main types, there are many different kratom strains that come from different geographical regions. These include Borneo kratom, Bali kratom, and Thai kratom, to name a few.
Now that we know a little bit about Kratom let’s get back to the question at hand: what is the strongest kratom?
Finding the Strongest Kratom Strain
We promise you we’ll help you find the most potent kratom, but it’s actually more challenging than it seems. The question you’ll have to ask yourself is, what are you looking to get out of taking kratom?
There’s little point in exploring red kratom strains if you are looking for more energy. Likewise, white kratom strains might not be the best option if you are looking for a strong, relaxing, and calming effect.
The strength of a Kratom strain is also determined by the amount of mitragynine present in the leaves and the alkaloid content.
Mitragynine is the main active compound in Kratom and is responsible for its unique effects. Mitragynine is the primary active alkaloid in kratom and is responsible for most of the effects that kratom users experience. At low doses, mitragynine produces stimulating effects, including increased energy and alertness. At higher doses, it produces sedative effects.
The alkaloid content refers to the total concentration of all alkaloids present in the leaves. A high alkaloid content means the leaves are more potent and have stronger effects.
So, rather than simply asking what is the strongest kratom, a better question would be: what Kratom has the highest concentration of mitragynine or alkaloids?

We have a wide selection of kratom strains available, and we are always expanding our selection. Here are some of the most effective kratom strains that we offer:

KRATOM POWDER OR EXTRACT – WHICH ONE IS THE STRONGEST?
When it comes to finding the strongest Kratom, you have two options: powder or extract.
Kratom powder is made from dried and ground kratom leaves. It’s the most common form of kratom on the market. It can be easily incorporated into your favorite beverage or food or even just swallowed orally and washed down with water. Kratom powder is typically less potent than kratom extract, but some users find it provides a more balanced effect.
Kratom extract is made by boiling down kratom leaves to create a concentrated form of the herb. It’s typically more potent than kratom powder and can be found in liquid or capsule form. Kratom extracts are also more expensive than powders, so they might not be the best choice if you’re on a budget.
So, which one is stronger?
The answer to this question really depends on your individual needs and preferences. If you’re looking for a powerful dose of kratom that will give you an energy boost or help with pain relief, then kratom extract is the best choice for you. However, if you’re new to kratom or prefer a more subtle effect, then kratom powder could be a better option.
If you are new to Kratom, it’s always best to start with a low dose – you can always take more if you need to, but you can’t take less once you’ve taken too much!
Wild vs. Harvested
Another factor influencing kratom’s potency is whether the leaves are wild or harvested. Wild kratom leaves tend to be more potent than those harvested, as they haven’t been exposed to the same environmental stressors.
Kratom that has been harvested from mature trees is also going to be more potent than kratom that has been harvested from younger trees. This is because older trees have had more time to accumulate alkaloids in their leaves.
Where You Purchase Your Kratom Can Impact Its Potency
It is also essential to consider where you are purchasing your Kratom if you want to ensure you are receiving a potent kratom product. At Mount Kratom, we source our kratom from experienced farmers who know how to cultivate and process the herb to preserve its potency.
We also test our kratom products in an independent laboratory to ensure that they meet our high standards for quality and safety.
The best kratom strains aren’t necessarily the strongest. Sometimes, a balance of different compounds is what’s needed for the desired effect. If you are looking for a strong kratom strain, it is best to ask yourself what effects you are looking for and then select a strain accordingly.
If you are new to kratom and unsure of what to try, we recommend starting with one of our variety packs so that you can sample a few different strains and find the one that works best for you.
