By Nootroholic | Kratom

What’s the strongest kratom strains that can fulfill your needs? That’s the question you’ll find the answer of today.

Frist, let’s look at each strain and in what area they perform the best. Then I show you the four potent strains that made me wonder how an innocent plant can do this?

Sedative Strains

Red Bali is a highly sedative strain loaded with 7-hydroxymitragynine. What is kratom without that alkaloid? Nothing. Falling and staying asleep gets easy because the strain can silence your mind from the mental chatter. But it can be hard to get up from the bed in the morning after that restful sleep. Red bali is also the best kratom strain for opiate high.

But for a mild sedation, you can try borneo. The red vein is the most sedating Borneo.

Stimulative Strains

White vein kratoms and their aroma are great at preventing fatigue and increasing energy. I have quit caffeine. Instead, I use white maeng da; sometimes the ultra enhanced when you need that energy kick.

You can also take a kratom alternative that works better specific for this purpose. But nothing in that list is as good as kratom. If you plan to use maeng da, you should switch to thai for your stimulating needs. And to avoid building up a tolerance.

Uplifting Strains

The right kratom can do wonders for your mood. People sometimes argue with me and say maeng da is best for mood. But now I use green malay as my to go strain for motivation. Green Malay alone is one of the strongest kratom. However, maeng da works better for some people because of the mixed alkaloids.

You who don’t like maeng da should try Bali for your uplifting needs. If the source is right, bali can boost your mood even better than maeng da.

Have you ever mixed thai with red borneo? I recommend you not. But if you insist you can experience the “euphoric buzz” kratom researchers are excited about. Music sounds so good at this stage 🙂

Analgesic Strains

Pain relief in kratom is easy to find. This is the huge advantage of the plant. Many people now live a much happier life free from suffering. You can spot a good painkiller by looking if it has 7-hydroxymitragynine, a stronger alkaloid than morphine.

Red bali is one of the best kratom for pain because it has some remarkable capabilities to relieve pain. It will almost wipe out your body’s perception of pain.

However, I do understand such potency is not needed every time. That’s why strains like maeng da and indo are great. They offer pain relief, but not as intense as red bali. And you who need moderate pain relief, malaysian kratom is your best friend. This strain you can use daily as a to go kratom.

To get aid for extremely bad pain from kratom, you need to take other kratom extracts instead of regular powder.

Bentuangie Kratom

A relatively new addition to the red vein kratom family. Bentuangie has incredible pain killing effects. For some, it might even be better than red bali. However, the effects tend to be slower, but once they kick in, your pain disappears.

Red bali is still a potent strain for pain. Picking bentuangie instead makes sense if you don’t want over sedation but still relaxation and pain relief.

Plain Leaf Variety Pack

Finding the strain that clicks with you is easy if you invest in the Variety Pack.

You’ll get Maeng Da, Premium Bali, Green Malay, White Vein Borneo, Red Vein Thai, Red Vein Kali, and Green Vein Thai. All the popular strains so you can try them out and discover the one that clicks with you.

Now you know the strains that work well in each area.

Just in case you aren’t sure.

Ultra Enhanced Maeng Da (UEMD)

One of the strongest kratom strains derived from ancient grafting.

Maeng Da has more alkaloids and flavonoids compared to the gentle strains. This strain is also called a ”clean stimulant” because unlike caffeine, maeng da doesn’t make you sweat or feel uncomfortable.

Ultra Enhanced Maeng Da means it’s infused with more, pure alkaloids.

Red Bali

A potent sedative strain highly recommended for pain and opioid addiction. So, you know it’s potent.

Red Bali Kratom has at least 25 to 30 alkaloids, if not more. Two of them compliment each other and forms this strain into a super effective painkiller.

The incredibly potent alkaloid7-hydroxymitragynine – is 13 times higher analgesic potency than morphine and 46 folds higher than standard mitragynine.

7-hydroxymitragynine combined with 9-Hydroxycorynantheidine gives red bali another supply of pain relief and relaxation.

Red Bali is more efficient for sedation compared to red thai. Red Thai, however, is more stimulating and people often report fewer side effects with it.

Green Borneo

Borneo kratom, in general, is strong.

But the green vein tends to stick out from the herd. It offers a stable mood and energy boost. Green Borneo Kratom is like red bali, wealthy in the same potent alkaloids, which makes these strains remarkable painkillers.

However, you should get red bali if you want a sedative and more relaxed experience. And Green Borneo if you still want strong pain relief but also more energy during your day.

Green Malay

Green Malay is a potent euphoric kratom with a moderate energizing scent. The more you take, the more relaxed you become.

Super Green Malay is said to be the strongest green vein. And one of the best for beginners. It can be used any time of the day. What I like the most with green malay is that the effects can last for up to 8 hours if the source is right. Despite being strong, it’s still the strain people take when they want to quit kratom.

White Vein

White strain acts as a stimulant to boost energy and concentration. Often used as a substitute for caffeine/coffee to promote wakefulness and mental acuity.  It also offers motivation and fights fatigue.

Good pick for demanding mental tasks. Use white early in the day, preferably in the morning because otherwise, you might get insomnia.

Red Vein

Red is sedative and a relaxed vein that can produce opioid effects. It is a euphoric color, and also famous for pain relief and relaxation of all kinds.They have high levels of 7-hydroxymitragynine than average kratom, an alkaloid associated with analgesia and stress relief.

Green Vein

Green strains act like white and red and produce stimulant, euphoric effects. The green veins effects are mediocre compared to the other kratoms, but green offers long-lasting effects, especially Green Malaysian.

People like to use this color for pain relief only because it doesn’t produce drowsiness. It is also picked up to treat social anxiety.


To quickly summarize. The strongest kratom strains are:

  • Ultra Enhanced Maeng Da
  • Red Bali
  • Green Borneo
  • Green Malay

Everyone has unique biochemistry. Some people are more resistance to some strains more than others. That’s why sample packs are for your advantage. Nonetheless, these strains are stable and will not let you down regardless. How you take kratom makes a huge difference in potency.

    I consider Kratom one of God’s many gifts to mankind. I have come to use Kratom daily & without it, I wouldn’t be able to live very well. The negative side effects are null, unless you count becoming more tired after a long day negative. I’d be in constant pain with my ailments mentioned, on top of the migraines I normally would get often, if not for Kratom. I normally use Bali, Maeng Da & White Vein Sumatra strains, although those aren’t the only ones I use. I mix them up sometimes but usually, I stick with Bali which has wonderful pain killing properties. I normally use 10 grams a day, broken up at intervals. Kratom has done nothing but help me live better, so much so that I don’t really care to use pharmaceutical pain killers anymore.

    Wicked Tea Co. has the best Red Bali I have tried yet!! Also, their Red Thorn (Red Horn some call it) is very very good. I would give it a solid 9.5-10 on a 1-10 scale.
    Give Wicked Tea Company a try. You won’t be disappointed . I want to add that I do not work for nor am I an advocate for Wicked Tea Company or ANY OTHER Kratom vendor. I just like to help others to find a good, clean, reliable source for kratom as I was very new to this product not that long ago and I have done ALOT of research and shopping around .

    • Darren says:

      Wicked Tea Co is very expensive compared to other vendors, and frankly, I did notice their strains were any better. Just my experience.

      • Pat W. says:

        You did notice, or didn’t notice these strains were “any better”?

  • chris says:

  • LJ says:

    What is the gentlest strain?

    • Bebe says:

      Kratom pharmacy brand Bali is very, gentle, subtle and kinda weak. I just got this brand called nimble bee “gold bali” and it is very strong feels somewhat like an opiate and taste very strong/acrid.
