kratom strains

Kratom comes in different smells and taste. People use Kratom for reasons. Most common is to melt away pain and depression. Then there’s those who use it to combat opioid addictions with great success. Whatever your case may be, I did some research, asked hundreds of people and read their comments on this website to pinpoint strains.

Pain Relief

You know by now that most, if not all Kratom strains can reduce pain. Here’s the best ones if you merly want to use the plant to manage your pain:

  • Red Bali (Nighttime)
  • Red Maeng Da (Daytime)
  • Bentuangie
  • Green Malay


First time I tried Red Maeng Da I was laughing and enjoying the present moment.

  • Maeng Da
  • Malay
  • Kapuas

Opioid Addiction

Red Bali is the best. A former heroin addict used it and recommend Red Bali to anyone who has a history of opioid misuse. This is because this strain is packed with alkaloids that are opioid-like.


A reason I use Kratom. The stimulating effects are better than coffee because it won’t cause any jitters or anxiety.

  • White Maeng Da
  • Green Malay
  • Thai

Enhance The Immune System

If you caught sickness easy you might consider Kratom.

  • Green Malay
  • Borneo

Now you know about different Kratom strains and where they perform best. The effects you’re after might be hidden in the dosage. Less is more for certain sitautions. Here’s a good starting point:

  • 1g A small dose with subtle stimulation and mood enhancement
  • 1-2g At this dose most people will feel the stimulating and better mood effects
  • 2-4g A balance between euphoria, stimulation, sedation and pain relief.
  • 3-6g A dose required if you want strong sedative and pain relief
  • 5-8g Strong sedative effects most beginners cant handle (don’t go there if you don’t have to)
