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?
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. This period of time makes red veins most potent and sedating of all the veins because of 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 left to grow for such 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 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’re looking for a kratom vein that would boost energy levels, red vein kratom 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 if you don’t consult a medical professional before determining a 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!
