The legal uncertainty surrounding Kratom has pushed some user to try their hand on an entirely new but similar substance, Mitragyna Javanica. The Javanica is a little known and remains largely unproven compared to other materials such as Kratom.


Mitragyna Javanica looks like it’s much-known cousin, Mitragyna Speciosa tree that is used to produce Kratom.  The trees have some similarities such as both being study, tall and broad-leaved but when you check inside the leaves, you will notice some differences. Mitragyna Javanica has some real properties and effects that are commonly associated with Kratom. Some believe that the free occurring alkaloid mitragynine is responsible for most of these effects.   Positive effects such as mood-lifting that are often associated with various Kratom strains.

Using Mitragyna Javanica instead of Kratom

There has been a substantive study that has proven that Javanica is more potent than Kratom. But what has been found is that the two are intimately related. There is no much anecdotal evidences to suggest that Mitragyna Javanica is better than Kratom. Perhaps because not many people have used Mitragyna Javanica as it is the case with Kratom.

Studies have also shown that Kratom is much effective in reduction of pain and stress compared to Mitragyna Javanica.  Many people credit this to the high number of alkaloids present in most Kratom strain. This makes it provide various health benefits to users of Kratom.

There are differences that exist between Mitragyna Javanica and Kratom, and the ajmalicine is at the heart of that. It is believed that Mitragyna does not have this important alkaloid while Kratom does.  Ajmalicine is thought to be the substance that gives Kratom the added potency that makes it the Nootropic of choice for most users.

The question that most people would ask themselves is why anyone would go a less compelling alternative when you can get all the benefits in Kratom?     It is also easy to find various Kratom products from anywhere that you might be, just go to the website and you can get all the products that you want.
