A Different Breed of Kratom: Red Vein Kratom

The Red Vein Kratom is one of the types of Kratom that are most sought after, because of its health benefits. It contains a large variety of both medicinal and non-medicinal properties. It is known to act as a pain reliever, sedative, and relaxation agent.

The red vein Kratom comes in many varieties mainly Thai, Borneo, Indo, and Malaysian. The red vein type is the one that is most commonly harvested than the other species because it grows more widely and produces greater harvests.

Farmers of red vein Kratom report that it produces higher yields, and is more resilient than other strains. The leaves have a distinct colour that is enhanced by the presence of unique chemicals in the plant, causing the veins and midrib to be redder.

Effects

Not all types of the red vein Kratom are useful in producing sedation, pain relief, and relaxation effects. Since they are not all alike in their potency and impact, some are more stimulating than others. They, therefore, should be used in moderation to prevent cases where they cause overdosing.

The most common effects that the red vein Kratom produces are:

  • Reducing anxiety
  • Pain relief- this is the most common effect of the red vein Kratom. It contains high levels of hydroxymitragynine which is the ingredient responsible for diminishing pain.
  • Sedation and relaxation- most herbal plants that have pain-relieving effects also have relaxation and sedative effects. People experiencing insomnia can benefit from the red vein Kratom because it lacks stimulating properties. However, when used as a sedation agent, it should be used in moderation to avoid interference during a hectic day. A separate strain of the product should be used during the day to enjoy the full benefits of the plant.
  • Boosting moods- this quality is not very potent in other strains of Kratom.

Guidelines for the use of the Red Vein Kratom

Dosage depends on the purpose for which the product is used. When used for alleviation of depression, stress, mood swings, anxiety, and insomnia, only 4 to 8 grams should be used. The dosage is enough to provide some tranquillity and uplift the moods.

When used for pain relief, the dosage should be 8-9 grams. The amount is enough to connect to the brain’s opiate receptors directly and works by reducing pain sensation. It is not recommendable to take anything higher than this dosage of Red Thai Kratom. Although it is considered to be less active than other strains of Kratom, it does not mean that it is entirely safe from causing problems.

Excess dosage can lead to dizziness and nausea, which are the most common side effects. More severe side effects may occur if taken in high dosage, and if combined with alcohol or opiate substances.
