A few months ago we asked some of the Approved Vendors to offer some discounts to our community. A lot of them graciously did. We have been asked to bring those discounts back. The following vendors would like to share the love for this forum with you. I know we all appreciate it.

Although not commonly considered the most desirable type of kratom, stem and vein kratom should not be written off too quickly. The virtues of stem and vein are quite varied, and many kratom users who have used it in one form or another have been pleasantly surprised with the results.

Stem and vein kratom is a type of kratom made solely from the stems and veins of other kratom products, however, because the de-stemming and de-veining process is not exact, one can expect around 30% of the material found in this type of kratom to be leaf material.

This type of kratom has a variety of uses that can make it worthwhile for many users, such as reducing kratom tolerance, increased duration of effects, for mixing purposes, and health benefits.

Why it Works
The stem material and vein material from the kratom plant is quite different in many ways than the leaf material itself. The most noticeable of these differences is in its alkaloidal makeup, as it has large amounts of alkaloids that aren’t as prevalent in leaf material. While the most noticeable ones are rhynchophylline, mitraphylline, and Corynantheidine. These alkaloids are fairly unique, as they are opiod antagonists, and some, such as corynantheidine, have some action at serotonin receptors; mitraphylline, as well, is a fairly potent immune system stimulant.

These unique alkaloid profiles create some unique and beneficial effects which aren’t as common when using the leafy portion of the plant alone.
Uses of Stem and Vein Kratom
As mentioned earlier, this type of kratom has a wide range of uses for both regular and irregular users of kratom. However, not everyone is effected in the same ways, so be sure to do some testing for yourself to get the best results.

Reduction of Tolerance
Reducing tolerance is essential for anyone who uses kratom on a daily basis. Without lowering your tolerance, the effects of kratom can diminish quite rapidly, and for anyone looking to lower their tolerance it is ideal. Because these alkaloids have opiod antagonist properties, it can lower tolerance without the irritability and negative effects that could occur from a user who stopped daily kratom leaf usage it without a taper, which is briefly mentioned in our how to use kratom article. It can also be used for those with opiate addictions in order to help avoid withdrawal symptoms.

By using stem and vein for a period of time, one can return to taking kratom and have a dramatically improved quality of effects.

Longer Duration
Because of the way it is structured, it takes longer for the body to process it fully, making it typically last around 50% longer than the leaf material alone. For those who want long-term relief but aren’t able to take it frequently, this can be a big help.

For a surprising amount of kratom users, mixing it with their regular leaf material has added a great dimension to the plants effects. Many users have stated that when they mix their S & V with leaf material, their kratom experience becomes much more well-rounded. Having tried this myself, I concur. For those who are interested, I suggest mixing about 10% to 20% S & V material with their regular dose.

Additionally, when mixing these two types, you will very likely notice that the effects of the plant last a lot longer. Not only the stem and vein portions. While I am not quite sure why this is, it is something that is frequently noticed.

Health Benefits
Because of the alkaloids found in high quantities in S & V, there are some health benefits to using it. Alkaloids such as mitraphylline are great for the immune system and have other positive effects on general health. The fiber found in this plant material is also generally higher than that found in the leaf, which can be great for some users who arer sensitive to mild to moderate constipation from the use of kratom.

Overall, stem and vein kratom has a vast variety of effective uses; I highly suggest you try it yourself and see how you like it. You may find you don’t want to go back.
