White Horn Kratom for Beginners: Benefits, Dose, & Potency
July 28, 2021
If you’re looking for a boost of energy to help you with your daily tasks, look no further. I have found white horn kratom to be a great strain to get the day started without the overstimulating effects of other white strains.
White horn kratom is a strain known for producing stimulating effects such as mood boost, energy, and mental focus. White Horn’s mild effects make it ideal for beginners or for those who only desire a subtle energy boost to get the day going. If you enjoy drinking coffee in the morning, White Horn can be an excellent replacement.
Although White Horn is more ideal for beginners, you’ll want to make sure you’re taking the correct dose and using the most ideal form of consumption for you.
Benefits of White Horn Kratom
I’d like to be as honest with you as I can possibly be. Although White Horn is not as potent as other white strains such as White Thai, it still produces very effective benefits.
The main difference between White Horn and other white strains is the gradual increase in energy vs a sucker punch feeling you get similar to drinking liquor when it creeps up on you. It’s still very effective, but much more manageable if you will.
I find it’s really lovely, stimulating. I feel cerebral, excited, euphoric, and ready to get sh$% done.Reddit User surelytempo 2017
Many people have compared drinking White Horn to a cup of coffee, which is why it is common to have a cup of White Horn kratom tea in the morning. Its the perfect strain to help you with mental tasks.
Let’s go over each of the benefits of using White Horn Kratom. We’ll rate each effect on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being very potent and 1 being extremely weak so you can get a good idea of how beneficial this strain can be for you.
White Horn provides a decent mood boost otherwise known as a euphoria. This euphoria is great for combatting stress and low moods.
I’ve used CBD and Kava to relieve my stress but nothing compares to the euphoric feeling provided by White Horn. The best way I can describe it is a surge of optimism.
However, don’t expect to walk around all day feeling euphoric. The euphoria only lasts about 20 to 30 minutes, but the overall good-feel effect will last anywhere from 3 to 5 hours.
From my experience with stress, I would notice it more in the mornings before I even got out bed! To help me take the edge off, I’d use White Horn before eating breakfast.
Using White Horn on an empty stomach helped me amplify its effects and get the day going because of its energetic properties.
Because White Horn is not as euphoric as other white strains, we’re going to rate it a 3 for its mood boosting effects.
Like I previously mentioned, I enjoy taking White Horn in the morning instead of drinking coffee. It provides a steady dose of energy much like caffeine, but it provides the additional mood boost.
Kratom and coffee originate from the same family of plants, so it’s no surprise they share similar effects. However, you’ll want to avoid big doses of White Horn kratom because although it’s a stimulating strain, it can still produce sedative effects.
The time it takes to feel White Horn’s energetic effects highly depends on the method you used to consume it (more on this later). Roughly speaking, it can take 15 to 45 minutes to feel the surge of energy and it can last anywhere from 3 to 5 hours.
Due to its ability to produce long lasting energizing effects, we’re going to rate White Horn a 4 for this category.
Besides stress relief, concentration is another one of my favorite reasons for using White Horn. The mental focus and clarity you get from White Horn is extremely helpful for getting through loads of mental tasks.
The best way I can describe this effect is like a light switch turns on in your mind that gets you looking forward to tackling whatever is on your daily list; a desire to be productive if you will.
You’re probably wondering and the answer is yes, I do use White Horn when writing these blog posts. Lol. I can get through them much faster when using White Horn.
You can expect the mental focus to last anywhere from 3 to 5 hours, but the initial effects depend on which method you use to consume White Horn.
It’s safe to mix caffeine and White Horn. The caffeine will actually boost the mental focus.
As far as concentration and mental focus, we’re going to rate White Horn a 4.
White Horn Kratom Dose
There are a lot of sites on the internet recommending the right dose, as if everyone is exactly the same. These recommendations are not 100% accurate, but they can be a good starting point to begin experimenting to find your ideal dose.
There are a number of factors influencing how you will react to kratom, such as:
- Food in your system
Keep in mind other factors will determine how you will react to White Horn. If you are sensitive to substances such as coffee, you may need to lower your recommended dose.
How to Take White Horn Kratom
There are a number of ways you can take White Horn kratom. You can drink it as a tea or consume it in capsule or powdered form.
The method you choose will depend how fast you will feel the initial effects and how potent the overall effects will be. Let’s go over each of the methods of consuming White Horn so you can decide which is best for you.
White Horn Tea
If you enjoy drinking teas on a daily basis, this method may be for you. White Horn kratom tea has been described as having a very earthy and bitter taste similar to Matcha, but you can add sweeteners such as honey, syrup, or juice.
The best way to make kratom tea is to simmer the water. Boiling destroys the alkaloids and reduces the potency of White Horn. You can also make Sun tea or cold brews. You will feel the initial effects of kratom tea in about 10 to 15 minutes.

White Horn Capsules
If you value convienency more than taste, you may want to use kraotm capsules. All you need is water and your capsules.
White Horn capsules are made by encapsulating kratom powder in a vegetable capsule containing hypromellose, cellulose, and purified water. They are 100% vegan.
The downside to using capsules is the amount of time it takes to feel the initial effects. It takes your digestive system about 30 to 45 minutes to break down the capsule.
However, once your body is done breaking it down, you will experience potent effects because the powder in the capsules retain all of their potency.
White Horn Powder
Directly consuming kratom powder, also known as the toss and wash, is my favorite way to take White Horn kratom, or any other kratom for that matter. It’s convenient, quickly produces effects, and it’s a great way to obtain potent benefits.
To perform the toss and wash simply take a spoonful of White Horn powder, drink water, swirl the powder in your mouth, and swallow. I’ll be the first to admit this method is not for everyone.
White Horn powder can be extremely bitter and tough to swallow. Unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do to reduce the bitterness. Using cold water or juice helps a bit, but it’s not a huge difference.
You should begin to feel the effects of the toss and wash in about 10-15 minutes.
