Similar to Bali and other major islands of Indonesia, Lombok is the main hub for Kratom too. Still, this region hasn’t been discovered a lot as people are more focused on the islands from larger shares of Kratom come. The Lombok Kratom, like all the other strains, comes in three different strains — the red, white and green strain. The local farmers dry Mitragyna tree leaves and crushed them to make the Lombok Kratom. The central vein of these leaves is responsible for the characteristic features of each strain of the Lombok Kratom.
The Red strain of Lombok Kratom is highly stimulating, while the White Lombok Kratom is a relaxing strain. The effects of Green Lombok strain are in between that of Red and White strain. Each of these strains has a variable quantity of different alkaloids that make it different from each other. The significant alkaloids present are the 7-hydroxymitragynine and mitragynine.
What is Lombok known for?
Bali’s sister Island or Lombok is an island situated in the West Nusa Tenggara province of Indonesia that is also called as the unspoiled Bali as it has fewer tourists than Bali. The main source of income for the island comes from the tourism industry.
The numerous scuba diving location, sandy white beaches, coastal areas, surfing avenues in the Indian Ocean, Mount Rinjani volcano, hotels, and villas make tourist attraction spots. Surrounded by smaller islands known as Gili, it is a breathtaking view and a must-go for all tourists.
The climate of Lombok is similar to Bali in many aspects as it also has a hot and humid tropical climate, with a stable temperature throughout the year, with frequent rains from November to March followed by a dry spell. April is the hottest month of the year, with temperature as high as 31.5 centigrade. Around 1500ml of rainfall occurs in Lombok per annum.
The agricultural lands in Lombok are mainly fertile, managed by smallholder farmers. Annually 2-3 crops are rotated. The main crops grown on the island include Virginia Tobacco that is exported internationally. Soy, coconut, and legumes are also grown in the highlands.
Along with these crops, Kratom is abundantly grown in Lombok. The rich alluvial soil, humid climate with warm temperature all aids in the growth of these crops; however, there is water shortage due to deforestation of the tropical rain forests.
Lombok Kratom leaves
The farmers hand-harvest the mature leaves from the Kratom plant in Lombok and allow them to dry under the sun. These leaves are crushed once they are fully dried. The color of each strain depends on the type of leaf crushed.
The ones having red-veined veins have a hue of red and brown when processed. The green ones are green colored, and the white-veined leaves, when processed, have a light green color.
Another strain of Lombok is the Yellow Gold, which doesn’t have a gold-colored vein. It is the processed form of White and Green-veined leaves and considered to be stronger than the rest of strains as it has concentrated alkaloids due to the prolonged extraction time.
Where can I Buy Lombok Krataom Tree Leaves Powder?
Only a few vendors sell the various strains of Kratom Lombok as it is cultivated and harvested in small amounts on the Lombok island due to shortage of water and prolonged dry spell period. Therefore, if you see a seller claiming to have Lombok Kratom powder, ensure that the vendor is a reliable one as often, they sell other types of Kratom strains in packages having Lombok as a label.
How to read the lab testing report before buying Lombok Kratom?
You must have come across many Kratom vendors that sell Kratom products without proper labeling of Kratom products as non-GMO, organic, or 3rd party lab tested. Ketum is not FDA approved as of now, and that is why it is mandatory to ensure that its pure and safe before it reaches customers.
A reliable way to do so is to get your Kratom products tested by a third party, that is unbiased and independent in its functioning. The testing must meet the optimum criteria to label Kratom as devoid of toxic material or additives.
The Kratom strains during the process of fermentation, processing, packaging, and labeling can be easily contaminated with microorganisms like Salmonella and E. coli. Therefore, it is essential to go for lab testing.
As a customer, before purchasing, Kratom always looks for the report of the lab test. If it is not available on the website, ask the vendor to email, or it should simply ring a bell that the vendor isn’t reliable.
Once you have the lab report in front of you, check if it has the name of the vendor on it, the product name, and batch name and correlate it with the product that you wish to buy. If it is a similar move to the next step, check the lab name and the test number so that you can verify it with the lab if you have any doubts. Usually, third party test reports are reliable.
Next, see what organisms have the product been tested for. In the case of Kratom, you must avoid any mold strains or microorganisms like Salmonella Typhi, Staph Aureus, Pseudomonas, Shigella, Coliforms, E. coli. Check if the product has been tested for the presence of these microorganisms.
Molds are responsible for releasing toxins such as aflatoxins that are carcinogenic. Ensure the date is mentioned in the report, and the method employed to test the product is mentioned.
Some vendors display a lab report that shows that testing has been done for metallic compounds like cadmium, mercury, lead, and arsenic. And, although this test is required too, it is not enough. Microbiological testing is necessary.
Always ensure that individual strains from a shipment are tested separately. Mixing various strains and then testing may not give reliable results as a contaminated strain gets diluted when mixed with non-contaminated ones.
