Red Vein Kratom Strains - Effects

Red vein kratom is one of the most commonly used and types of kratom, and where it doesn't match white vein kratom effects in lucidity, it makes up for it in brute force. This type of kratom is awesome for those looking for painkilling effects, sedation, anxiety and stress relief and more.

About Red Vein Kratom


The reason red vein kratom is so potent is because of its proportionally higher levels of 7-hydroxymitragynine in comparison to other vein types -- whereas white veins are higher in mitragynine and green veins would a mix between the two alkaloid levels.

Painkilling Effects

One of the reasons this kratom is so widely used is because of its potent painkilling effects. For anyone looking for a good kratom for pain killing, this vein type is by far the ideal choice, especially a red vein borneo or bali, which can be a lifesaver for those with chronic pain. I know many people who have quit using prescription drugs thanks to potent red vein strains.


Out of all types of kratom, red vein strains are typically the most euphoric. The main reason for this is because of their higher levels of 7-OH-Mitragynine. These strains come on very strong and typically last about four to six hours before abating in effects.

Anxiety Relief & Relaxation

Reds are ideal for anxiety relief and relaxation, making them most commonly used in the afternoons. For those who want to relax after a hard day at work, getting a strong RVB can be an ideal choice. However, this strain taken too early in the morning can put some right back to sleep.

Reds are one of my favorite types of kratom for these reasons, but I love all the others too. It really depends on the day and the time of day. There's a pretty decent thread on kratomassociation that discusses red vein in comparison to others, so definitely check it out
