What is Red Vein Kratom?
Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family. It’s native to Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, and other South Asian countries. The leaves, or extracts from the leaves, have been used as a stimulant and a sedative for hundred of years. It’s also been reported for treating chronic pain, depression, digestive ailments, and so much more. There are many strains of Kratom, including green, red, and white vein kratom varieties. What is white Kratom? Each strain provides different effects, from stimulating to sedative. Users report mood lifts, pain relief, and increased energy and focus.
Kratom veins are distinguished by the color of the stem and vein of the leaf. However, there’s more than just optics that separate Kratom veins. On a pharmacological level, red and green vein leaves typically contain more Mitragynine –– the active ingredient (alkaloid) in Kratom often associated with pain relief. How a person reacts to Kratom depends not only on the vein and strain, but also on the amount that is taken. There are many strains of Red Vein Kratom, but what are the best Red Kratom strains? Here are a good sampling and descriptions:
Red Kratom Strains:
Red Maeng Da Capsules, Powder or Crushed Leaf – Red Maeng Da Kratom Powder is a Red Vein Kratom Powder that is one of the most powerful strains when it comes to alkaloid content. “Maeng Da” literally translates to mean “Pimp Grade” and is one of the most popular strains of Kratom. It is said to be a mood uplifter and a major energy boost. There are reports that these properties may help distract from pain.
Red Bali Capsules or Powder– Red Bali Kratom Powder is a Red Vein Kratom grown in Bali that has been said to have strong effects for analgesia. Red Bali is also said to have strong sedative qualities.
Super Red Borneo Capsules or Powder– Super Red Borneo Kratom Powder is a Red Vein said to provide euphoria and boosted energy. There are reports that these properties help distract from pain. Both stimulating and relaxing. This Kratom has been known to induce less nausea. The “Super” in the name means that only the largest leaves are used in the processing of this Kratom. The larger the leaves the higher the alkaloid content tends to be so these strains tend to be much stronger.
Red Elephant Capsules or Powder– Elephant Kratom gets its name from the larger than normal size of the harvested leaves. After an initial energy boost, this kratom is said to help promote a feeling of well-being and contentment. This means that the energy it gives isn’t as harsh or jittery as some strains can be, while still maintaining that effect that red strains normally give.
