White Malay Kratom: A Malaysian Kratom Strain that’ll Keep You Motivated All Day

Regardless if you’re a novice to Kratom or a seasoned user, it’s always exciting to discover and sample different strains. This is based on my own experiences as a regular and long-standing user of Kratom.

The thing that makes Kratom so interesting is that each strain gives you a different feel and effects, varying from a couch-locked sedation, to a smooth euphoric energy that’ll keep you moving on the dance floor or at work (remember, Kratom can be intoxicating so I never suggest using it if you have to do anything physically demanding).

With White Malay Kratom I take you on a deep dive into one of Malaysia’s best-kept secret strains, introducing you to this motivational, energetic, and uplifting strain.

Unlike ‘most’ guides and articles, I offer a personal approach to White Malay, offering you my own insight, experiences, and more.

But don’t worry, this won’t be all about me. I’ll be including a broad range of research-backed information, from clinical and scientific studies, to White Malay’s history, origin, effects, and more.

So strap in and let’s get to it, shall we…

What is White Malay Kratom?

White Malay Kratom is a white Malaysian Kratom. Despite the namesake, don’t expect the powder to be white. White strains like this Malay tend to be stimulatory vs sedative, making it a favored option for getting through the mid-day drag, kickstarting your mornings off right, for creative activities, social occasions, and more.

What Makes White Malay Kratom Stains So Unique?

There is a lot about White Malay that makes it so special, but what stands out the most is its effects. These effects are due to the vein’s alkaloid profile, comprised of more than 40 alkaloids in varying concentrations.

White Malay Kratom Features

Aroma: Botanical, slightly acidic, and bright

Color: A shade of light to medium shades of green

Flavor: Bitter, grassy, and earthy

Potency: Moderate to strong.

What is White Vein Kratom?

White Vein Strains: What to Know About this ‘Vein’

Each Kratom strain is named in part, by the ‘vein’ it comes from. When we talk about ‘veins’ what we mean are the veins present on the underside of the leaves of the Kratom tree known as Mitragyna Speciosa.

These veins turn various shades of green, and darken to red over time, indicating varying levels of certain alkaloids, and impacting the eventual effects of that strain. This is what makes the difference between White Malay, Green Malay and Red Malay.

White vein Kratom, like this Malay, are known to act more like a stimulant than a relaxant, especially at low to moderate doses.

Where Does White Malay Kratom Come From?

The name may have given you a hint. Malay is short for Malaysian. Malaysia is a Southeast Asian country that includes both the island of Borneo and the Malay Peninsula. This region is known for rich culture, breathtaking beaches, and vibrant rainforests.

It is among the tropical rainforests where the Kratom tree (Mitragyna Speciosa) thrives. Hot, humid temperatures, along with plentiful sunlight and rich soil result in Kratom trees that produce a wonderful blend of alkaloids we all enjoy.

How is White Malay Kratom Made?

White Malay Kratom Cultivation

In order to make White Malay Kratom, farmers in Malaysia need to cultivate and grow the Mitragyna Speciosa tree. This evergreen is a distant relative of the coffee plant, and a member of the Rubiaceae family. It is from the leaves of these trees that Kratom is made. The veins located on the underside of the leaves are where the tree deposits its bioactive alkaloids, such as Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine.

Harvesting the Leaves

The leaves used to make White Malay have to be picked at just the right stage in the tree’s growth cycle. Too early and there isn’t enough alkaloids present, too late, and you end up with a green or a red strain.

The optimal time to harvest leaves for White Malay is just after the first growth spurt of the season, when leaves are bright, fresh, and vibrant. The veins on these leaves will be a light-bright green color, indicating the perfect blend of alkaloids for a white strain Kratom.


Once harvested, the leaves are gathered and laid out on a flat surface to dry. The warehouse where Kratom leaves dry in is temperature-controlled to keep it cool, and free from any UV light that could cause oxidation. Fans further help pull away moisture.

Once dry, the whole leaves are ground up into a fine, consistent, light green powder and ready to be vacuumed sealed, and packed for shipment.

My Experience with White Vein Malay Kratom

The internet is great for a lot of things, but finding out information about Kratom strains isn’t often one of them.

Most info online consists of re-hashed blog posts or companies simply trying to pitch a product. That’s part of why I wrote this guide. I wanted to include my own personal experience with White Vein Malay Kratom, giving you perspective and insight from a real consumer.

That, combined with a bit of science and factual information hopefully helps you on your journey. Remember though, every person’s body is different, and you may not react the same way I did to this strain.

My White Malay Kratom Dosage

With Kratom, you always want to start out small. Even if your intent is to achieve effects that are typically felt with higher doses, it’s always a good idea to see how your body reacts to a strain.

For me, I’ve had a lot of experience so I opted to dive right in at what would be considered a moderate (typical) dose. That way you can get an idea of what it might be like if you scale up.

I prefer whites for a couple of different goals and occasions. As a morning pick-me-up, for the mid-day drag when I’m feeling sluggish, and for social occasions where having a bit more ‘pep’ can be fun and helpful.

With that in mind, I decided to give my mid-day dose regimen a try. For that, I took 4.5 grams of Kratom powder, mixed in a chai tea I had prepared. I find that the spices help cover up the bitterness of the Kratom.

White Malay Kratom Effects (For Me)

About 20 minutes after dosing I’m starting to feel a bit tingly (not uncomfortably so), a bit flushed (like a gentle warming), and a smooth onset of energy. I notice that I’m focused and my mind wants to get things done. At about 40 minutes in, I notice that I’m in a great mood, and a bit euphoric. This mood elevates with the euphoria increasing over the next 1.5 hours to a peak.

I’m feeling motivated to do things, similar to after an energy drink but without the fast-jitters and anxiety that often comes with stimulants. It’s nice feeling wide awake and ready to tackle things without the anxiety.

I’m not really noticing any of my usual aches and pains. White strains aren’t often the ‘go-to’ for pain relief, but I notice it none the less.

After zipping through chores to burn off some of this energy, I am feeling sharp, so I load up some games on the PC and see how that feels. So far so good. I notice I’m less distracted and honed in on the prize. Where cannabis can slow me down mentally, I feel pretty clear, although the euphoria does add a bit of ‘carefree’ attitude and a feeling of less pressure to perform. I notice I’m much less aggravated when things aren’t going my way.

These feelings persist for a few hours, slowly tapering off as time goes by. I forgot I hadn’t even eaten. Kratom is known to suppress appetite. Could be useful if you’re on a caloric restriction / diet. For me, I just roll with it and find that postponing a meal until later typically works out ok.

White Malay Kratom Effects: What Does Science Say?

Even though Kratom has been used for centuries around the world by tens of millions of individuals, there is a lot we still don’t know about this incredible botanical.

The “West” has largely scoffed at Kratom as an “Eastern” remedy or holistic plant, with few clinical studies done on its effects. Luckily though, there are plentiful studies on Mitragyna Speciosa, its alkaloid profile, interaction with opioid receptors, and more.

This, along with consumer feedback, has opened the doors wide on how this mystical plant is helping millions of people the world over.

Alkaloids present in Kratom, mainly Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine have both been proven to interact with mammal opioid receptors to elicit a broad range of effects. In case you need a biology refresher, you’re a mammal too lol.

White Malay Kratom Benefits (Reported by Consumers and Backed by Science)

Benefits experienced by Kratom users are largely similar, but do vary. This is due to several factors including your body chemistry, age, gender, weight, type of product used, strain, and more.

Generally speaking, high doses result in a more sedative and euphoric effect, while lower doses result in desired effects such as stimulation and energy. Moderate dosage results in more balanced effects.

Consumers Often Report Benefits of White Malay Kratom, Including:

  • Stimulant-like energy
  • Improved clarity and focus
  • Motivation
  • Better mood
  • Euphoria
  • Pain relief
  • Reduced feelings of social anxiety
  • And more…

Stimulant-like Effects

This is where most white Kratom veins shine the best. The unique alkaloid profile of white strains be it White Borneo, White Maeng Da, White Thai or White Malay are ideal for staying alert, focused, and motivated. It’s why so many users will opt to take a dose of white strains in the morning or for an afternoon boost of energy to get through the day.

Better Mood

Kratom is known as a mood lifter, with most users reporting a significant improvement in mood with each use. I don’t have to tell you that for most people this is a much-welcomed effect.

Scientifically, Kratom’s alkaloids interact with mammalian opioid receptors a release of ‘feel good’ neurotransmitters in the brain such as dopamine.

Stress and Relaxing Effects

Although white strains of Kratom aren’t as well known for relaxing (considering they are more stimulatory), the reduced stress and muscle relaxing properties as well as better mood can definitely produce an ‘alert’ but a less stressed state of mind and body.

Motivation, Focus, and Creativity

By far, white vein Kratom like White Malay is ideal for keeping motivated, uplifted, focused, and creative. This makes the strain a nice option for social occasions, artwork, hobbies, and more.

White Malay Kratom Dosage

When it comes to dosing, your mileage may vary. There isn’t a standardized dosing protocol that’s universally recognized. But there are various doses that tend to produce differing effects that we can discuss.

See: Determining How Much Kratom to Take

Dose For Energy, Motivation, and Focus

For many consumers, Kratom is a great alternative to jittery energy drinks or coffee that leaves them crashing hours later. For others, Kratom can be mixed with coffee or tea to kick it up a notch even further. No matter which category you fall into, this Kratom can likely help.

For an energizing effect, doses between 1-3 grams often hit the spot.

Dosage For Stress Relief, Mood Boost, and Social Occasions

As an alternative to drinking, or to take the edge off for those who get stressed out at social occasions, a dose of around 3-4.5 grams is often the ‘sweet spot’ for many people.

In this range, the stimulation is toned down a bit, and euphoria and stress relief effects become more pronounced.

Dose For Relaxation

Looking to kick back for an enjoyable evening but don’t want to be TOO sedated or tired? A moderate to higher dose of white Malay might hit the spot.

At a dose of between 5-6 grams, the strain’s energetic properties are more subdued, but the relaxing euphoric effects are intensified.

White Malay Kratom Products

White Malay Kratom Powder

Kratom powder is how most people experience Kratom for the first time. It’s also the product most people consume. Powder is affordable, easy to use in a virtually endless list of recipes, and is readily available. A couple potential downsides though. The powder can stain clothes, needs to be precisely measured using a digital scale, and isn’t as convenient if you need to dose when not at home. Oh, its also quite bitter naturally. Usually, citrus or chocolate is suggested to cover up the bitterness.

White Malay Kratom Capsules

Kratom capsules are a convenient and reliable way to get your dose, without the need for measuring or preparing. This makes them convenient and great for when on the go or traveling. The downside is that you can’t fit a lot of Kratom in each capsule and that often means having to down several to get the dose you want. They’re also more expensive.

White Malay Kratom Concentrates

The most potent of Kratom products, extracts or concentrates (as the name implies) are a concentrated solution of alkaloids, usually suspended in oil or alcohol. Just a few drops or a single dropper goes a long way.
