A Guide to Everything You Need to Know About Red Vein Kratom

May 15, 2021

Kratom naturally appears in many strain varieties. It can be tricky to distinguish them and understand their effects! The four predominant veins of kratom are red, green, white, and the newer vein of yellow kratom. In this blog, we’ll delve into red vein kratom, why it’s arguably the most popular vein of them all, and what makes it stand out from the rest. That way, you can stay informed and find out all you need to know about red vein kratom!

How Is Red Vein Kratom Different from Other Veins?

Add to cart

Kratom trees grow in Southeast Asia and the leaves are picked and ground into powder. Then, they’re sent to various locations in the world. The amount of time needed for each plant to fully mature determines the vein of kratom.

White veins are the youngest, freshest leaves; green and yellow veins fall somewhere in the middle, and red veins – our main focus today – take the longest amount of time to mature. They usually require a lot of sunlight and sometimes even UV lamps to grow.

Some say that red vein kratom is the ‘most aged’ or the ‘oldest’ vein of kratom. If you’re looking for the most potent and sedating kratom, red vein is the answer. This is because the time it stays on the tree increases its alkaloid content.

The kratom plant contains over 40 alkaloids, the predominant ones being mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. Among other effects, these alkaloids are highly analgesic and soothing. When the plant is left to grow for a long time, the alkaloids in kratom become stronger and more potent. That’s why red vein kratom is typically used to ease discomfort in various areas, or as a natural sleep aid.

Effects of Red Vein Kratom   

As we mentioned above, red vein kratom is quite strong due to its alkaloid content, which causes a relaxing effect. Many kratom users tend to use red veins when they’re feeling discomfort, and it also works well as a mood enhancer. If you want to boost your energy levels by using a kratom, red vein is not the perfect choice. You should try out green veins, white veins – or better yet, a blend of both!

Some other positive effects of consuming red vein kratom include:

  • May be helpful for stress or anxiety
  • Might ease discomfort, meaning it acts as an analgesic (due to the high alkaloid content)
  • Might improve sleeping patterns
  • May improve the general well-being by providing soothing and calming sensations

It should be noted that these effects are just a general statement and that everyone reacts to kratom differently. What matters most is to listen to your body. If you’re having any doubts about introducing kratom as a supplement to your diet, then consult a medical professional!

Red Vein Kratom Side Effects

As with any other supplement, some unpleasant reactions may occur when you use kratom. This is especially likely if you don’t consult a medical professional before determining the specific dosage that would work best for you. Since red kratom strains are more potent than the other veins, taking too much of it at once may cause some mild discomfort, namely the following:

  • Nausea – especially if you take kratom on an empty stomach
  • Problems with digestion
  • Sluggishness and fatigue

Luckily, these side effects are easy to avoid if you just make sure that the kratom you’re using is safe, pure, and taken in controlled doses! GRH Kratom should be your go-to vendor for purchasing kratom of the highest quality that’s sourced ethically and tested properly! Knowing where to buy your kratom from can save you from many inconveniences later on, and here at GRH Kratom, we believe that kratom should be completely natural & clean – just like Mother Nature created it!
