Here at GRH Kratom, we’ve tried plenty of different kratom strains! We try new strains coming in, batches of blends, and most of us are huge kratom fans. We’ve asked around the GRH lab, and here’s our list of the best kratom strains for relaxation and discomfort.
Of course, kratom can affect people differently, but in our experience we’ve found these kratom strains to be ideal for cozy vibes, mild sedation & relaxation, and a dash of euphoria, too!
While red vein kratom is popularly used for pain, discomfort, and things of that sort, we aren’t doctors and can’t make medical recommendations. So while these kratom strains are popular for issues like that, we cannot recommend them for pain relief.
Best Red Veins:
Red Maeng Da- A powerful strain with high alkaloid content, and is popular for providing pleasant relaxation and relief, as well as positivity.
Red Indo– The effects of our Red Indo strain are intense because the leaves have a high alkaloid content
Bentuangie– One of the newer strains of kratom, found to be very relaxing, mildly sedating, and popular for relief.
RELAX (blend)– We’ve combined multiple strains of red vein kratom for the optimal blend of effects. Chill out without being too zonked-out. Everyone deserves a little rest and relaxation!
Why These Kratom Strains?
Red vein strains are the oldest version of the kratom plant. The type of kratom that you’ll end up with (and the effects it’ll have) depends on when you harvest the kratom leaves, how you dry them, and where they’re grown. White veins are harvested the earliest, then green veins, with red veins staying on the tree the longest.
What does harvest time have to do with the effects of kratom leaves?
Think of the kratom leaves like a person-
White veins are like teens/young adults: bright, full of energy, motivated & lively.
Green veins are like mature adults: a bit calmer, still active but with less energy & more positivity
Red veins are like elderly people: they’ve slowed down, are much calmer & have much less energy. These are the more relaxing strains of kratom.
So, to get the most relaxation & relief from your kratom, be sure to pick up Red Vein strains.
Any red vein (taken in a normal/average dose) should provide relief from discomfort, relaxation, and some euphoria, too! But the strains we listed above are our all-time favorites when it comes to R&R!
