Mitragyna Hirsuta: A Popular Kratom Alternative
If you’re looking for kratom alternatives, you really can’t miss Mitragyna hirsuta. What is Mitragyna hirsuta? This tree is in the same genus and family as kratom (Mitragyna speciosa, in the coffee or Rubiaceae family) and the leaf is even known on the street as “kra thum khok.”
GREEN LEAF SOLD OUT RED LEAF AVAILABLE
The leaves are green with light-greenish white veins, and while they are somewhat smaller than kratom leaves, they have a similar structural appearance.
Growing natively in the jungles of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Malaysia, Mitragyna hirsuta has become popular in places like Thailand where kratom has been illegal since 1943.
It has similar effects to kratom with gentle stimulation at low doses and sedative effects at high doses.
Similar to kratom, Mitragyna hirsuta is traditionally used for its calm, energizing effects and to relieve the discomfort of minor aches and pains. Larger doses may also bring on a feeling of sedation. However, this kratom alternative is said to be generally milder and have fewer side effects than Mitragyna speciosa.
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). in store
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.
