Mitragyna Hirsuta – Fresh Leaf
Each fresh Mitragyna Hirsuta leaf is equal to around .8 or 1.2g of dried leaf. Each leaf is picked to ship, for freshness we recommend you select 2-day shipping. Your leaf will keep for around eight days in the fridge or 3 – 4 days at room temperature in a sealed bag. It can be air-dried to preserve the leaf at which point it can be stored like your typical Kratom leaf or powder.
What is Mitragyna Hirsuta?
Mitragyna Hirsuta comes from the same genus and family as Mitragyna Speciosa (Kratom plant). It is a popular kratom alternative because it shares similar properties. The leaves are green with a lighter green white vein that runs through them. They tend to be smaller than Mitragyna Speciosa leaves, and have a street name of “kra thum khok”.
The Mitragyna Hirsuta plant is native to the jungles of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Malaysia. Kratom became illegal in 1943 in Thailand and Mitragyna Hirsuta became very popular in this area as an alternative.
Just like kratom, traditional forms of use included chewing the leaf. This was widely done throughout the Southeast Asia culture and is not a prevalent form in the Western World because the plants do not naturally grow here and it is hard to gain access to the actual leaves. They are typically crushed into a powder and sold on the market.
Mitragyna hirsuta powder is a very popular alternative to the kratom plant. It is not offered in a lot of local stores but can be sourced through an online vendor.
Mitragyna Hirsuta vs Kratom
M Speciosa (kratom) has a robust alkaloid content. The high concentrations of mitragynine are what make kratom well known. These alkaloids are known to work with the receptors in the brain. M Hirsuta on the other hand does not contain mitragynine or the other active indole alkaloid that makes kratom well-known, 7-hydroxymitragynine.
Mitragyna Hirsuta is rich in a different alkaloid known as mitraphylline. However, the overall mechanism of this alkaloid is the same as kratom. There is not a lot of scientific research surrounding either herb, which only provides anecdotal experiences to be searched.
What are Mitragyna Hirsuta’s Key Alkaloids
We did touch on this above but let’s take a deeper look at the indole alkaloid profile for Mitragyna Hirsuta. This ancient herb, just like kratom, is known for its key alkaloids and the overall balance that they offer.
However, the two key alkaloids in kratom which tend to be ban by many areas across the globe are Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. Both of these alkaloids are not present in Mitragyna Hirsuta, which makes this herb much more accessible in the United States.
M Hirsuta contains mitraphylline, which binds to the same mu-opioid receptors in the brain as mitragynine. This alkaloid is also present in kratom and Cat’s Claw (Uncaria Tomentosa). Another alkaloid that was recently discovered in Mitragyna Hirsuta is Isomitraphyllinol.
What are Mitragyna Hirsuta’s Key Alkaloids
The alkaloids in Mitragyna hirsuta are the active compounds that give the herb its effects. Fortunately, Mitragyna hirsuta is free of two of the top “controlled” substances present in kratom: Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. This makes the herb much more accessible to consumers in the Western world.
Instead, this herb contains an alkaloid called mitraphylline that binds to the same mu-opioid receptors in the brain as mitragynine and is also present in kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) and cat’s claw (Uncaria tomentosa). Another oxindole alkaloid in the herb has been discovered recently that is called isomitraphyllinol, although the effects of this alkaloid are not currently understood and require further study.

What are kratom vein colors?
The color of a kratom vein are determined by the content of mitragynine (alkaloids) in the vein. The purpose of producing mitragynan is to protect the tree from insects and animals from eating the leaf. It’s also a stress mechanism. The mitragynan is why the leaf is so bitter and correlates to strength. This is why more mature leaf is more bitter then fresh leaf. When kratom leaves mature the alkaloids are sucked back into the tree through the veins. These leaves will look more yellow.
In winter you see mostly white and green with some red. Spring, mostly green, white, some red, with pink starting to show up. In summer, Seed pod are popping up, you see green, white, pink, red, purple. This continues to happens thru Fall. We should note seed pods are best to pick off the tree in Jan – April. Kratom Vein colors usually have its darkest vein color at the exterior of the plant. Getting lighter as you go inward. But is harder to see in summer – fall as all colors are on the tree. Want to know more? The Kratom Bible is also available here on the #kratomAPP
The more alkaloids in the vein. The more red the vein will be. Purple at the high end of alkaloids. White at the low end of alkaloids. It is possible to see all vein colors grow at the same time on the same tree. (pink, red, purple) more near the bottom as that is where they have roots as that’s where most of the nutrients are. Up the tree will be more (greens and whites). They start getting more color variation the larger they get.
Mature Kratom Leaf?
Mature Kratom Leaf has been sitting on the trees for months before it is picked. Kratom leaf matures over time and as the leaf ages it becomes stronger. This is kratom leaf’s normal life cycle. You can tell a mature leaf will show signs of aging. Edges of the leaf will be a bit more weathered. Leaf that has been further along in the season will have a more yellowish color to the leaf.
How do you de-veining kratom leaf?
What is de-veining? De-veining is taking the main stem that runs thru the kratom leaf and extracting the vein out of the leaf. Veins can be chewy and do not break down as easily while chewing.
How is Mature Kratom Leaf Traditionally Eaten?

3D Drone Mapping American Kratom Nursery’s
Taking to the sky! Utilizing drones, we are able to document our American kratom nursery’s from a different angle. These drones are able to 3D map our kratom nursery using a technology called LIDAR. Applying these 3D models into our Kratom Avatar Chat Kynto. Our goal is to map out our entire nursery and insert the nursery into the world for users to interact with these trees. Allowing them to take guided or self guided tours. The cool part, is that we can then translate that information into virtual reality (VR). Available on the PlayStation VR, Oculus Platforms, and Google Cardboard.
We will be opening up our tools and software to allow other nurseries and growers to map out their kratom nursery. Interested in having us out to document your nursery? Contact us here or contact us on the Kratom Watchdog app.

Red Vein Kratom
Red vein kratom is one of the most popular due to its natural tendency toward higher levels of 7-hydroxymitragynine, which leads to impressive pain-killing effects, sedation, as well as anxiety and stress relief.
Red veins also tends to be less at the mercy of individual brain chemistry; whereas white and green vein strains often effect people variably.
Native to the Southeast Asia, kratom (Mitragyna Speciosa) is a powerful medicinal plant used by thousands throughout the world. The medicinal potentials of this plant are vast, some of the most prominent include: pain relief, mood lifting, energy and immune system stimulation.
There are entire forums on the use and benefits of this impressive plant, which speaks for this plant’s virtue more than we ever could.
Uses of Kratom
The medicinal effects of kratom are both highly flexible and broad due to variations in alkaloid profile between plants as well as the unique qualities of the alkaloids themselves, which are largely unlike any others known to exist. Traditionally, it has been used for:
- Pain relief
- Energy Promotion
- Anxiolytic (Anti-Anxiety)
- Insomnia Relief
- Immune System Stimulation
- Nootropic (Cognition Enhancing)
- Lowered blood sugar
In addition to this large range of medicinal applications, this plant also has many other positive secondary properties such as high-antioxidant and vitamin and mineral content, which has made it an item of interest for general health purposes as well.
Kratom’s pain-killing effects are very pronounced, and are much more effective than OTC substances when dealing with chronic pain. It is these potent pain-killing effects that have allowed many to become entirely pharmaceutical free (an inspiringly common event within the kratom community).
As public awareness increases and fear-mongering and outright disinformation dissipate, you can expect to see this plant as a commonplace alternative to riskier treatments.
Kratom can effectively reduce pain from conditions such as:
