Explore the Kratom Strains By Effects
So what are the core chemical compounds that initiate the effects of Kratom? Certain chemical compounds called alkaloids exist in each Kratom strain, be it BaliMaeng Da, Borneo, or any other. Kratom alkaloids contribute to the strain’s flavor and potency. The essential alkaloids in Kratom are Mitragynine and 7-hydroxy-Mitragynine. Although Mitragyna Speciosa contains 40+ alkaloids, these two comprise most of the alkaloid profile.

Mitragynine is the main active compound in the Kratom plant, and it acts as a stimulant and mood-uplifting agent by interacting with our brain’s mu receptors. On the other hand, 7-Hydroxy-Mitragynine alkaloids have to relieve and elevating properties. The concentration of both alkaloids in the strain directly indicates its strength.
