This is a classic, well-balanced kratom strain, suitable for any time of day. Kratom is a natural plant from Southeast Asia that has been enjoyed for generations. And now it’s starting to get recognized in the Western world, too.
Green Borneo is, of course, from the famous jungle region, and strains like these have been popular with laborers for centuries.
In this short guide, we’ll explore what you can effect from green vein Borneo, and highlight the best ways to maximize its effects.
Making Green Borneo kratom tea
Kratom tea is a favorite among kratom users, especially those who want a warming and lasting experience. Kratom tea must be gently simmered rather than boiled, as this protects the alkaloids (e.g. mitragynine). Heating the tea too much risks burning off the alkaloids, and destroying kratom’s effects.
Mixing Green Borneo powder into a cup of hot water is an effective trick to get “instant” kratom tea. If you find the kratom has an overly intense, bitter taste, stir in some sugar, honey or any other sweetener. This will make the kratom go down much more easily!
The “toss and wash” method
You can also “toss and wash” Green Borneo powder, for faster delivery of kratom’s effects into the body. This method works by scooping powder into the mouth and swilling it down with water. “Toss and wash” is also good if you simply don’t have the time or opportunity to brew tea.
However, not everyone likes the naturally bitter kratom flavor, which really powers through with toss and wash. If this is you, maybe stick to tea!
