Kratom Strains

What’s The Best Red Kratom?

For most men and women, it isn’t uncommon to feel plagued by day-to-day stress. When you think about everything we have to deal with on a daily basis, such as paying the bills, making enough money to pay the bills, making it to work on time, maintaining a home, taking care of the kids, there’s a lot of things that can lead to stress and drain your energy. We all deal with it in our own ways. For some, it could be going for a run or exercise. It could be a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. For most, de-stressing is great, but it’s just not enough. This is why a lot of people enjoy kratom for its unique ability to promote a sense of euphoria, which is certainly a step ahead of most stress relievers.

When it comes to the most popular kratom strains for stress and euphoria, there’s no question that red kratom may be one of the best kratom types to enjoy.

Red vein kratom is known for its high alkaloid counts and if you’re looking for potent kratom, that’s what you want to hear. Higher alkaloid counts are found throughout different red vein kratom powders.

In this guide, we’re breaking down which kratom powders deserve to be labeled as the “best red kratom” and the effects to each.


While there’s a wide range of red kratom strains on the market, traditions rarely die and there’s going to be some common names on our list.

All kratom is not created equal. Where you buy your kratom matters a lot too. Speaking of traditions, kratom farmers have been growing kratom for centuries, secrets passed down from one generation to the next. The history of kratom is one that dates back centuries.

We’re looking at the top 5 red kratom strains, let’s get to it.


One of the most recognized kratom strains is Bali kratom. One of the top Bali kratom powders is red Bali. Red Bali kratom may offer great benefits like pain relief. Red Bali may also has strong sedating effects. Users have reported they use red Bali as it may help in getting relief from their stress, anxiety and depression too.


The most popular kratom strain here at Kratom Exchange is Maeng Da kratom. Make no mistake, Maeng Da was bred to be a powerful kratom strain.

While white Maeng Da has been labeled as the best powder of the strain, red Maeng Da is equally popular among the kratom community. While red Maeng Da may be a great pain reliever as most red strains are, users have also stated it may provide both energy and focus.

Another benefit the community often mentions is Maeng Da may also offer mood enhancing effects.


While the Thai kratom strain may very well be the most popular of all kratom, there’s no question that red Thai kratom is one of the strongest.

Again, like most red strains, red Thai kratom is used for pain relief. Users of red Thai say they may even enjoy a nice boost of energy, focus and concentration with this specific kratom strain.

If you’re looking for mood enhancing or stress relief, you may want to consider white vein or green vein Thai.


Due to increased popularity in the West, Borneo has become a major distributor of kratom. This has allowed for the popularity of Borneo kratom to take off here in the United States. Red Borneo kratom might be used for treating pain, anxiety and insomnia.


One of the richest histories of growing kratom is Indonesia, they’ve been doing it for centuries. Due to this, Indo kratom is one of the best kratom strains you may get your hands on.

Red Indo kratom is known as the kratom type that may produce the least amount of side effects. While I can’t confirm that myself, I feel it depends a lot on how much you take.

Anyways, red Indo may be able to help with enhancing your mood, stress, helping you relax and chronic pain. Another reason kratom users love red Indo is because it may have long lasting effects, much more than other kratom strains.


If you don’t know by now, the amount of kratom you dose will play a role in the effects you feel when you take red kratom or any other type of kratom.

On top of that, everyone is different and your kratom experiences may be different than what others report.

Now, most red vein strains are potent and powerful. If you’re not used to taking red vein, you need to make sure you don’t “over do it.”

If you’ve never taken any type of kratom before, I always recommend a first dose of 1-2 grams. Wait 30-45 minutes for it to kick in and assess how you feel. If you don’t feel the benefits you’re looking for, try taking another 1-2 grams to get the desired effects.

While red vein kratom strains may be great for pain relief, there are many more benefits these kratom strains may help with.
