What Is Red Thai Kratom? Benefits, Effects, Dosing And More

What Is Red Thai Kratom?

When it comes to the most popular red kratom strains, red Thai is often referred to as one of the best. While we’ve discussed red kratom strains in great detail here at Kratom Exchange, I haven’t had the opportunity to go into great detail about how good red Thai kratom is, what effects you may experience, its history, and what others think about it. Let’s talk about it.

While there’s a wide range of different kratom strains on the market, red kratom is one of highest in demand. There’s no question that the red kratom strains are among the strongest kratom you can get your hands on. 

Like other red vein kratom, red Thai has a high alkaloid count, which is what gives kratom its effects. Kratom, also called Mitragyna Speciosa, is a tropical tree that originates from Southeast Asia, in areas such as Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. While most of the kratom tree is useless, the kratom leaf is not. In fact, the kratom leaf is what gives kratom its power to help you. Check out the history of kratom here.

The primary alkaloid in kratom leaves is mitragynine, which is well known for relieving pain.


Now, what is red Thai kratom? Red Thai shares many of the same benefits as other red vein kratom strains, like it may be able to relieve pain. Red Thai kratom may also  help with chronic pain. While it shares similar effects to other red kratom, it may also produce effects that may be more significant in red Thai versus other red kratom.

One benefit that many red Thai consumers report is mood enhancing, I can vouch for that myself. Red Thai has the ability to put me in a great mood, a carefree mood to be exact. Even at just moderate dosages, it may be relaxing and not so much of a stimulant.


While we’ve already discussed some red Thai effects that it may offer like pain relief, chronic pain relief, relaxation and mood enhancing, let’s talk about some other effects the kratom community has mentioned while taking this kratom.

(1) Better Sleep – A lot of red Thai users report sleeping a lot better. While there’s a few different kratom strains that help me sleep like a baby, red Thai is certainly up there in my top 3 for a restful, deep sleep.

(2) Anxiety And Stress – Many users on red Thai report prefer to taking it for stress, anxiety and depression. Others have said it may help them be more sociable, be more open and friendly. While I don’t disagree, I feel other strains can do the same.

(3) Energy – Another common effect we’re hearing as of late is a shot of energy that may last several hours. In fact, a few community members said it may even help them through half the day.


By now, I’m a broken record on kratom dosing. Everyone is different, there’s just no way I could possibly know how much red Thai kratom you should take.

If you’ve never took kratom before, I have you covered. You start out slow, period. I want you to be safe and a 1-2 gram dose of red Thai is plenty to begin with. Give it 30-45 minutes to kick in. If you’re not feeling anything at this point, take another 1-2 grams after you’ve waited. Again, give it 30-45 minutes, you should be feeling a lot better by now.

Why? It may be possible you can have side effects from kratom. Those side effects may be less with a small kratom dose versus a larger one. It’s rare for someone to experience this with such a small dose, but better to be safe than sorry. Never consume a lot until you know your tolerance, always start with small does, I can’t stress that enough.

We’re always asked, “what’s the right kratom dose to take?” It all depends on you and your unique chemical makeup.

For those of you that have taken kratom before, you know more about what you need to dose than I do. Use your best judgment.

You’ll never know until you try it for yourself, all the research in the world can’t help you.


Where you buy kratom matters, I can’t stress this enough. Red Thai from a kratom vendor can be different than red Thai from another.
