There are lots of different strains of kratom, one of the newest options available to users is the “elephant” strain. This strain of kratom derives its name from the shape of the leaves that it is made from. They are shaped like the head of an elephant. That leaf shape is one of the only physical differences between this strain and other strains – in fact, most elephant kratom leaves appear green in color.
Elephant kratom is grown on the largest of kratom trees, and due to it’s large leaf size is therefore biochemically very different from any of it’s kratom counterparts. The large leaf size gives elephant kratom the ability to harbour greater amounts of mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. This makes it one of the most powerful strains of kratom on the market.

In fact, most kratom growers don’t even grow elephant kratom, instead, elephant kratom leaves are sourced from natural growth trees in the rainforests of Indonesia.
