For those of you that are buying kratom to get that opiate-like effects, red kratom can certainly help you get it. While premium red vein kratom can certainly help you feel euphoria effects, kratom users explain that red vein has many benefits outside of opiate effects. In this guide, we’re breaking down which kratom powders deserve to be labeled as the “best red kratom” and the effects to each.
With So Many Different Strains, What’s The Best Red Kratom?
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.
(1) Red Bali Kratom
One of the most recognized kratom strains is Bali kratom. One of the top Bali kratom powders is red Bali. Red Bali kratom is great for pain relief, likely the top benefit that users have reported with this specific kratom powder. Red Bali also has strong sedating effects. Users have reported they use red Bali for their stress, anxiety and depression too.
(2) Red Maeng Da Kratom
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 is a great pain reliever as most red strains are, users have also stated it provides both energy and focus. Another benefit the community often mentions is Maeng Da’s mood enhancing effects.
(3) Red Thai Kratom
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 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.
(4) Red Borneo Kratom
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 has been used for treating pain, anxiety and insomnia. Red Borneo is also recommended for opiate withdrawal.
(5) Red Indo Kratom
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 can get your hands on. Red Indo kratom is known as the kratom type that produces 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 has long lasting effects, much more than other kratom strains.
How To Dose Red 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 use to taking red vein, you need to make sure you don’t “over do it.”
If you’ve never took 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 access 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 are great for pain relief, there’s many more benefits these kratom strains can help with.
