There will always be that long lost friend in your life who makes it feel like nothing changed even after years apart. It doesn’t matter how far and wide time and distance has spanned between you – it’s always going to be a familiar feeling whenever you get back together. If you’ve got a friend like that, you know you’ve got a keeper.
If there ever was a kratom strain that embodied the essence of that long-lost and beloved friend, the White Kapuas is exactly it. The White Kapuas is a reminder that all is well with the world, and that no matter how heavily the challenges of life might burden you, there will always be a comforting confidant that you can run back to.
What Is This Strain?
The perineal white strain if there ever was one, the White Kapuas has an exotic origin befitting of its rare availability. These are grown from plants found in the Hulu forest surrounding the Kapuas River near the border of Indonesia and Malaysia.
What makes this strain a rare find in specialty stores is the difficulty by which it’s harvested. The forests that are home to these plants are precarious and deemed unsafe for normal travel. Furthermore, the technical know-how to determine if these plants are mature are dependent upon the indigenous people native to the area.
Much like its geographic location, this strain is a hybrid of sorts of different plants located in the area giving it a distinct aromatic profile. On top of that, the effects may vary within a large spectrum of various kratom effects.
What Are The Effects?
The White Kapuas belong to the group of kratom producing stimulant effects. Being a white vein strain, in essence, it can reliably produce a great energy upliftment with mood-boosting properties. It can provide a calming effect on top what some describe as mental excitement.
The effects of the White Kapuas have been observed to be long-lasting, meaning it’s a perfect strain to take in the morning. Have a long day ahead of you? Start it with White Kapuas. Be careful, however, in taking this late in the day. Its strong stimulatory effects can hamper your sleep cycle and may prove difficult for you to settle down during the night.
The most common comparison for White Kapuas is the famous White Maeng Da strain which is largely considered as the benchmark for white vein kratom. The White Kapuas gives Maeng Da a run for its money, however as it’s able to produce a consistently high energy feeling accompanied by mood-boosting effects.
A close brother to the White Kapuas is the Green Kapuas and both share similar effects owing to their same origins. Green Kapuas has a more pronounced calming and sedative effect compared to the White Kapuas.
Lastly, those looking for a similar experience to White Kapuas should look no further than the White Thai. A kratom known for its stimulating effects, you’d be hard-pressed to make a distinction between these two strains as both create a similar effect.
