The horned kratom is a particularly potent strain of kratom that grows in Borneo. It’s very rare and one of its strains, the white horned kratom, is one of the hardest to find in stores.
It is, however, known to have many positive effects, including euphoria and healing effects. If you’re looking to try out a different strain of kratom, look for something a little more potent, or have a new experience overall, then this strain should be on your to-try list.
I discovered it the way I typically do, by trying new things, and I honestly can’t say I regret coming across this brilliant strain. Here are my two cents on it.
A Little Background on the Horned Kratom
The horned kratom is much rarer species of kratom, compared to other species. It’s also much harder to grow, especially domestically. Come to think of it, I guess that’s one of the things that make it so special.
One of the things I noticed was that a lot of folks would confuse the horned kratom with the Maeng Da kratom. They both have spikes on their leaf margins, so it’s understandable. But confusing these two is a little like confusing a chimp and a gorilla.
However, they are not the same. For starters, the horned kratom is much more potent than the more readily available Maeng Da. It also has a unique profile to the alkaloids it contains, which you won’t find in other species or strains.
Another thing about it is that you can’t always tell how fast you’ll feel the effects. I got the kick in a few minutes. Some of my friends say it took them nearly an hour to feel it. It really all depends on the person.
The horned kratom is native to Indonesia, Thailand, and Borneo, among many other Southeast Asian countries. The main reason why it’s so rare is that it’s actually a hybrid of the Maeng Da strain and the red veined or white veined strains.
It’s also commonly known as the ‘spiked leaf’ kratom and has jagged tips that are very similar to those of the Maeng Da leaf. In fact, it is quite often that you’ll see it being labeled erroneously as Maeng Da by sellers.
The major distinction between the two is that it the edge looks similar to that of the Maeng Da while the bottom looks much like the bottom of a red or veined or white veined kratom leaf.
This species of kratom is very rare and grown in a select few number of places. The leaves are highly valued and are typically traded long before harvest. During harvest, only leaves from the most mature trees are collected and they are never allowed to mix with other leaves.
Properties of the Horned Kratom
The horned kratom has numerous therapeutic benefits, many of which are experienced more potently with it than other kratom strains. Here are some of the properties of this awesome leaf:
It stimulates the Brain
This kratom gets you up and running like a brand new engine. Fatigue, lethargy, whatever it is that’s keeping you under the weather, will go away after taking some horned kratom.
It works pretty well for all users. It will also stabilize your mood and prevent you from having severe mood swings, giving you a better sense of self control over your emotions.
It promotes Euphoria
The horned kratom is well known for its ability to stimulate euphoria in the user, taking you to a happy place and keeping you there for a fairly long time. This effect is especially noticeable in the white veined horned kratom leaf.
This euphoria won’t easily occur with smaller doses, however, as a fairly large amount of the horned kratom leaf is required. This euphoric feeling is quite on demand among users.
However, I would recommend not going for it immediately upon starting your use of the horned kratom leaf. You need to start with smaller doses and then build up from there.
It enhances Brain Functionality
The horned kratom has a major advantage over other kratom leaves in that it is the best natural nootropic. Nootropic drugs stimulate the brain and sharpen, among other things, your memory and lucidity.
The problem with artificial nootropics, such as chemical supplements and drugs, is that they may have negative side effects. With natural nootropics like the horned kratom leaf, you don’t have to worry about the side effects. It’s perfectly safe and effective.
It instills a Positive Attitude
This might seem insignificant, even silly to list as a benefit, but I have seen plenty of people who suffer from pessimism. In fact, I think it should be listed as a mental illness.
It can come as a result of plenty of things, including stress, fatigue, and a heavy work load. All of these can cause your mind to go into overdrive and generate plenty of negative and gloomy thoughts.
The leaves of the horned kratom help by relaxing your mind and stimulating a euphoric feeling. You start to see your life from a different perspective and your overall demeanor becomes more positive.
It Increases your Energy
This is one of the strongest effects of the horned kratom. It dramatically elevates the energy levels of the user and prepares them to face the day ahead. It has also been known to increase the testosterone levels of a man.
This makes the horned kratom leaf an excellent supplement to take in the morning as it gives the user plenty of energy to face the day ahead of them. If you’re prone to regular feelings of fatigue, weakness, or lethargy, then the horned kratom should be perfect for you. It’s particularly ideal for students and working people.
Appropriate Dosage, Pros, and Cons
When I found out about all the great benefits of the horned kratom, I wanted to know what the correct dosage was. Often times, such a potent supplement should be taken in spare dosages to avoid over the top effects. However, it can be difficult to find out the correct dosage as the information is typically sparse.
I was lucky in that I found out what the correct dosage was for the red and white veined horned kratom leaves.
Red Veined Kratom Leaves
The red veined kratom has a particularly high potency, and so you should be careful with it. You can experience most of its effects on a meager 1-3 grams per day. If you’re a beginner, it’s advisable that you take 1 gram per day.
If you’re after the euphoric experience, you’ll need to take a high dosage of the red veined kratom. This effect will be experiences at dosages of more than 9 grams per day. You will feel intense excitement and happiness that can last up to 6 hours, depending on the person. For a beginner, however, it is advisable that you start with a low dosage and work your way up as you get used to the effects of the supplement. You can do more than 9 grams later when you’re used to the supplement.
- Great benefits at low dosages
- Euphoria at high dosages
- Can induce a slight sensation of nausea for first time users. However, the feeling quickly goes away.
White Veined Kratom Leaves
For the white veined kratom, there are 3 different levels of dosage you can take. It’s advisable that you start with a low dose then slowly work your way up as you get accustomed to the kratom leaves.
The smallest dose you need to feel the effects of the white veined kratom leaves is in the 2-4 gram range. At this range, you will get an energy boost, a better mood, and increased motivation to face your day.
A moderate dose of 4-6 grams will give you an even more significant energy boost. You will find your emotions coming under your control more easily and begin to experience the nootropic effects of the white veined kratom at this dosage. Your physical and cognitive performance will also be off the charts.
A high dose of over 6 grams will bring about feelings of euphoria and relaxation. At this dosage, the euphoria takes over and the other effects become muted. This dosage isn’t advisable for beginners, though. You should work your way up slowly and get used to the kratom leaves before trying out the high dosage.
The effects of the white veined kratom will typically last between 4 and 6 hours, depending on the user.
- Offers great benefits at a small dosage
- Creates intense feelings of Euphoria
- The effects are long lasting
- Can induce a slight sensation of nausea for first time users. However, the feeling quickly goes away.
My Experience with the Horned Kratom
When I first tried the horned kratom, the experience was nothing short of remarkable. I started out with smaller doses of each, typically in the morning before I faced my day and in the evening after a long day of work.
Red veined Kratom
With the red veined kratom, the most remarkable effect at smaller doses was the energy boost. I felt absolutely pumped when I took it in the mornings and was ready to face my days no matter what. It also greatly improved my mood and had me in a positive attitude.
I normally get easily distracted and can be moody under some circumstances. I really don’t like mood swings and being unable to focus. These are the enemies of productivity. However, with the red veined kratom, I could overcome them and my productivity shot up through the roof.
After a while, I stepped up the dosage, particularly in the evenings. The euphoria was amazing. It was the kind of euphoria you feel when you are at peace with everything, no matter how good or bad it is.
White Veined Kratom
The white veined kratom is famous for its nootropic effects, and it does not disappoint. At low doses, I only experienced the energy boost effect, similar to the red veined kratom.
However, at moderate doses of 4 grams and above, the nootropic effect began to kick in. My mind experienced such clarity as it had never known before.
I loved the level of focus it afforded me and I found myself excelling at creative activities. At higher doses, the euphoria was quite similar to the type experienced with the red veined kratom.
Where to Buy
The Horned kratom is very rare and isn’t found easily among suppliers. Some suppliers even sell the Maeng Da strain and call it horned kratom due to the stark similarities between the two.
Others will go the whole way and scam buyers by selling them useless powder labelled as kratom.
Finding the right store to buy your kratom leaves at is important. What’s important is that you know that you’re buying a legitimate product. I buy my horned kratom at the Coastline Kratom store. They sell high quality horned kratom leaves, among other varieties, and have quick delivery times. They also have good prices.
I can honestly say this kratom was a great discovery for me. It gave me a serious boost in morale and got my brain going at a hundred miles an hour. It really doesn’t matter what you’re looking for: a new experience, a kick, or a boost in your performance; this kratom has you all sorted.
This rare kratom leaf will take you to the next level of productivity and keep you there long enough for it to be useful. Even if you’re just looking for a euphoric experience, you’re sorted. I don’t think I’ll ever regret discovering this leaf; it has practically changed my life.
