Top 5 Strongest Kratom Extract You Should Avoid


Which kratom is best for pain?

  • Red Bali
  • Yellow Vietnam (Gold Kratom)
  • Bentuangie
  • Green Hulu

There are a few kratoms considered best for certain needs. This article is designed to reveal the best kratom for your unique needs. You’ll notice I highlighted specific names because these are the strongest type of Kratom. Enjoy.

Best Kratom for Pain

best kratom for pain

Red Bali is without a doubt one of the best and strongest kratom strains that cant do wrong. A highly sedative strain loaded with 7-hydroxymitragynine. What is kratom without that alkaloid? Nothing. The sedating effects are intense from red bali. Falling and staying asleep gets easy because this strain can silence your mind from mental chatter. Might be hard to get up from the bed in the morning. If you want to treat severe pain and improve sleep you need this strain.

Why Red Bali?

Many people now live a much happier life free from pain and constant battle from addiction to painkillers. Thanks to the best kratom strains available.

You can spot a good painkiller by looking if it has 7-hydroxymitragynine, a stronger alkaloid than morphine. One way to find this alkaloid in abundance is to turn to red veined kratom.

Red Bali is a strain perfect for pain and opioid withdrawal. So, you know it’s potent.

Red Bali Kratom has at least 25 to 30 alkaloids, if not more. Two of them complement 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. This makes red bali one of the best kratom for pain.

Is Red Bali The Best Kratom for Opiate High?

Red Bali is more efficient for sedation compared to red thai. Red Thai is more stimulating and people often report fewer side effects with it. A former heroin addict used this strain. It might even be the single best kratom strain for opiate high.

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

Strongest Kratom for Energy

best kratom for depression

White vein kratoms and their aroma are great at preventing fatigue and increasing energy. I have quit caffeine. Instead, I use white horn and malaysian and found out that they are the most stimulating and uplifting kratom.

If you tried white maeng da and was promised stimulatory effects but failed, you should give kapua strains a whirl. These strains are also the best kratom for anxiety.

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 kapuas as my to go strain for motivation. And Yellow vietnam kratom when I want a mild stimulant.

Kapuas strains alone are one of the strongest kratom for depression to take during the day. However, maeng da works better for some people because of the mixed alkaloids. Both are effective mood enhancers so you don’t have to worry about that.

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 users are excited about. Music sounds so good at this stage.


kratom leaves

Bentuangie has incredible painkilling and relaxing effects. For some, it might even be better than red bali.

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

The effects of bentuangie tend to be slower, but once they kick in, your pain disappears.

Potent Kratom Extract

Kratom comes in many forms. If you are looking for an extract that will blow powder out of the water you should go for tinctures. My favorite is resin because they hold the full spectrum of effects. And you only need a little bit to feel the horsepowers kratom offers. This kratom benefits list covers all the goodies you can get from the plant.

White Vein

White vein is the best kratom that 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.

Red vein kratom capsules have the most satisfied costumers. 

Green Vein (Must Have)

Green strains is a balance between white and red. The green vein effects offer 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.

Every Kratom lover should have a green strain nearby.

Last Thoughts

To quickly summarize the strongest kratom strains:

  • Bali/Borneo
  • Kapuas/Hulu
  • Malaysian
  • Maeng Da
  • Bentuangie

What is the best kratom? It’s hard to say which kratom alone is the strongest since they produce different effects. Everyone has unique biochemistry. Some people are more resistant to some strains more than others. That’s why sample packs are great to test and find your favorite kratom.

Kapuas and Malay kratom is the best kratom for energy. Bali is the strongest kratom for pain relief. Maeng Da is the best kratom strain for all needs, depending on the color.

Nonetheless, these strains are stable and will not let you down regardless.

  • Angela Mackenzie says:

    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.

    • Eric says:

      I completely agree with you!

    • Kristy says:

      Whicj is better to take for pain and energy

    • Philip says:

      Is there any one strain that is best for everyday use.

  • Michael says:

    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”?

      • Felicia S Johnson says:

        What other vendors do you recommend?

      • Philip says:

        Who u use?

  • chris says:

    hello i have been buying and trying so many different stains to hopefully find the one that has the same effect as the vivazin with kratom shots and i have yet to found any? does anyone know or have had the same problem? if so i would love to hear.

  • 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.

      • Nicki says:

        What website did you get the gold Bali from?

  • Hi says:

    Super Green Malay is weak for me. Maybe that’s why people use it when they are trying to quit? So they are kinda cutting down slowly by taking a weak strain. You say its strong but its not really. Not with the euphoria at least. It will knock you out if you take too much but it never does give you that good buzz that Hulus, maeng da and Green Horn give you.

  • Hi says:

    That being said, the RED MALAY is GOOD!

  • Ron R Kunz says:

    I am currently experiencing great pain relief and a warm stimulating buzz from meang da and from the company remarkable herbs. 3 grams , 3 times a day, and I usually have a bigger dose for the evening! Mix with lemon snapple! God gave us this plant for a reason, and it shows. I was able to cut my anxiety meds in half and still tapering. No side effects, one time I took a bit too much and had some dizziness, but that’s been it as far as side effects..and one side effect that I welcome is the hardening of my stool! I always had loose poops, and now I have normal. I like that! All in all, great medicine.. helps my bass playing as well, feel a bit more creative. Anyway, remarkable herbs red meang da is from a headshop, but it’s legit! Smells fresh from the jungle (and a bit like green tea). Peace and good vibes from nj!

  • Amanda K. says:

    I am very new to Kratom. I am a recovering addict and my DOC is pain pills. I have an insane tolerance level and was taking 20-50 hydrocodone a day (the 10mg). Obviously I need help stopping, since it helps so well with pain, I need something that will mimic the effect of that amount of codeine. Any suggestions on which strain to purchase? I got a bottle of the Maeng Da from the gas station, but it’s not strong enough, and it takes hours to kick in… I took 10 of them today so far… Any suggestions would be so helpful!

    • Lk says:

      Try the powder capsules you have to take too many I was in same boat as you now I will take Maeng da over a pain pill any day. But started on capsule they didn’t work I just swallow with water a table spoon and I’m good for a few hours

    • Dana says:

      At your previous tolerance level, I would recommend you go to red maeng dad, or Red Bali. You will have to start by taking around 10 grams. Wait at least 2 hours before you dose again, but if the 10 didn’t have any effect you’ll have to go up to 15 grams. You may just have to use the Kratom for a while to lessen the withdrawal effects you get from stopping taking the Norcos, but eventually you will get down to a point that you feel the Kratom.

    • Omarion says:

      Mix it with grapefruit. Take white in the morning and red Bali at night. I used to be the same, from Cheese to 20 to 30 hydros (10s) a day to Suboxne for a year to Kratom only. I never felt any withdrawals. I honestly have no clue how anyone can go thru withdrawals! I live in Texas, when I decided to stop Suboxne I booked a flight to California for a week so I can go thru the withdrawals alone. I didn’t want my family to know or to see me going thru it. I decided to just quit it cold turkey. I swear to god I still remember how much I cried that week. On my way back in the plane literally 7 days later and I’m still withdrawling off Suboxne and I still feel every bit of it. I wanted to get out of my own skin. As soon as I landed I went to the smoke shop and bought Kratom. And I’ve been on it since. Now let me tell you something that most people do not like to discuss or mention, you will feel withdrawals symptoms if you quick Kratom and they are similar to any opioid, but you can go thru it. Like if you’re strong you will do it. I’ve done it a couple of time and I was clean for months. I would get back to it just cuz I miss the feeling and bc I know that I’d be able to quit even though I would suffer a bit lol. Hopefully this will help.

    • Johnny says:

      You need to be off the opiates for at least a couple a week’s trust me I know I was on methadone which is way more potent then hydrocodone ! A friend had suggested kratom he had done the same thing .the first time I tried it I had little effect but after two weeks I tried it again and this time it hit me hard it felt just like an oppiat high and the brand I used was kratom boost its a black bottle with green letters it’s the maeng da you can get a bottle of 75 150 and 300 capsules the more you buy the cheaper it is. I usually take between 5and 6 capsules the suggestion amount is 5 to 7 capsules .you just have to give your body time to withdraw because the opiate re.
      receptors will block the kratom but once you withdraw for a bit you will out of the blue feel it but make sure to get a good quality brand like I suggested or ask others

    • Richard says:

      Taken 10 so far ? Are you taking capsules? If so stop. Get the powder. Try 5 grams at a time and adjust from there

    • Philip says:

      Martha da it really works!! I have taken Oxy for years from doc you need to buy a kilo powder form mix well you will see!!!Really!!

    • Ian F says:

      Use powder. Much cheaper and more effective.

    • Matt says:

      First off hydrocodone is not codeine. Codeine is actually one of the weakest opiates that exist. If your looking for the strongest opiate like kratom that makes u feel great, sleep great, good energy, relieve pain and never even think about real opiates anymore then red vein bali is no doubt the strongest and best. Dont listen to the hype of all the different strains its all bout which strain has certain alkaloids and the percentages. I myself get whole herb brand 500ct. Half gram caps for 54.99. In cap form that’s about the best bang for your buck you can get. Hope that helped.

      • Mia says:

        Hydrocodone is Tylenol with Codeine. It’s not even straight codine

        • Tammra says:

          Hydrocodone is definitely NOT the same as Tylenol with Codeine. Codeine is the weakest opiate. Hydrocodone goes by the brand name Vicodin, Lortab, and others.
          Your welcome

    • Chris says:

      Try red bali or yellow borneo take a 7 gram dose. I think thatll work for you

    • Christina says:

      I was on Suboxone for 4 years and it was not easy to come off of them til I found kratom.. I take maeng da and it helped me but I use the powder in water its nasty but it works

  • Scott says:

    What is the best katrom for a euphoric feeling ?

    • Lady D says:

      Green Bali, Green Ketapang, Red Thai, Red Borneo,Red Bali, White Indo and White Thai. Love them all!

  • Glen says:

    When you are speaking about kratom in general there are some effects that are expected from each leaf. The important aspect to note is that EVERY BODY IS DIFFERENT. I have been taking kratom daily for almost 2 years for pain control in all major joints. In the first few months of sampling various strains the expected outcome could be determined beforehand. However, as time progressed reactions to different strains could not be predetermined as a white strain would knock me out cold..any white strain including Maeng Da. I rotated and combined strains to keep excruciating pain at bay and that helped quite a bit for awhile but I had to experiment further in terms of changing vendors, which I encourage. The top vendors out there took awhile to find. Legit is the cleanest and best for MY needs of pain control followed by Canopy. I require high dosing with minimal side effects at top end ingestion. Hopefully, I will get surgery soon as M.D.’s could care less about my pain. Hope this helps someone. All the best to you. Kratom is definitely a lifesaver.

    • Rose T. says:

      you have given me hope.doctors are messing with me and i need a miracle other than a bunch of surgeries!

  • Joseph lucent says:

    I have severe restless leg syndrome and have been taking medication for many years. I tried red vein borneo and feel like it’s the best thing that has ever happened to me. I no longer take medication and know what it’s like to have a good night sleep. Just wanted to pass it on. nothing has come close to the results I get from kratom.

  • Lawrence says:

    Kratom first crossed my path after a Neurologist had just told me that I would have to wait 4 months for an appointment to see her for the migraine headaches that I was experiencing. I went looking online for alternative answers for my pain. I found a thread where users were talking about Kratom’s benefits for their ailments. I found a reputable dealer in OR. and was lucky enough to find the right way to create a Kratom Tea. The capsules require an empty stomach, but the active ingredient in the tea is ready to go whether you’ve eaten or not. I’ve been taking Red Dragon Kratom Powder for about 5 months now and the additional benefits have changed my life for the better. I no longer suffer from Arthritis, my hands and joint pains have vanished. I drink a stiff glass of the tea in the morning every day, then a small glass after lunch. I go about 18hrs without with no side effects what-so-ever, no withdrawal, whomever claims that it’s addictive is high on something else. Constipation has crept up and I take a supplement for that when needed. I turned my 80 yr old mother onto this and she swears by it, no more arthritis, and she claims that her tennis game has ratcheted up a notch. Her friends are now inquiring about Kratom, but one of them read all the negative press on Kratom and has sworn it off, meanwhile she chokes down 6 medications a day that are probably wrecking havoc on her kidneys. Kratom is not for everybody, but it works well for me. I have played with several strains of Kratom and have settled on Red Dragon. There is an opiate like effect, which I like, and the pain killing effectiveness really works for me. A Script Supervisor at work claims that she sleeps better and that it has cured her ailing backpain.

    • Mia says:

      Lawrence where do u buy it?

  • Philip says:

    I have been using kratom for two years. Started mixing green and red. I’m still looking for the best comb. This site has explained a lot.

  • Christina says:

    Me and my husband have been taking kratom for about 3 years. My husband is an Iraq combat veteran and it saved his life. We only use powder, but lately it has been hard to feel it. I have tried mixing it up so as not to get used to just one kind. Any suggestions to help feel it better? We have never bought from an online store only gas stations from our area. I’ve wanted to order from online but to nervous to get wrong one.

  • J.T. says:

    Kratom is such a great organic, God-Given plants that helps people in so many ways. If you are hunting for the “Best” Kratom, you’re not going to get an answer. It’s kind of like asking what’s the hardest rock? I know that’s a stretch, but since it’s popularity has risen over the past decade in the U.S., companies are trying to market their brand by coming up with the coolest sounding names. But essentially, it is a plant that thrives across the globe, mostly between Thailand and Indonesia. Across this, over 3,000 mile stretch of Earth, a variety of “strains” are harvested. The basic names of the different types of Kratom refer to its home soil. For example, Indo is from Indonesia. Guess where Bali Kratom comes from…yep, Bali, Indonesia. A funny thing I’ve seen is the Maeng Da “strain”. You can search all over this world and never find Maeng Da. It is actually a word from Thailand that means “pimp”. So, when you order your Maeng Da Kratom, you’re ordering pimp kratom. But to put it in real terms, you can simply go to “Google Maps”, flip it over to South East Asia, and you can see the names of your Kratom, from Thailand (or Thai) to Bali. It almost seems as if the potency is laid on a chart for you. Thai is a potent strain, while Bali is a more subtle strain, and in the middle of those countries lies the Malaysian Islands, which tend to be the middle of the row strains. So, now that you have your geography lesson on Kratom, why is White MD so much different than Red MD. They are both pimps with no specific place to call home (I guess Thailand could claim rights). But this crop is harvested for purposes. It is said that the original vein (where the color comes into play) is red. Then why are there white, green, yellow, golden…??? You can actually grow you own plant anywhere. Get the soil, a humidity chamber, the seeds, and a little know how, and you can create whatever color you want. Under the natural color of the Sun’s red beams, you will get red kratom. But, if you want to play with it, use a blue light to get green, or a white light to get white. I can get really nerdy and start introducing the color system, but we’ll stick to the basics. No color additives make black. All colors make white. So, with white already in the mix, with a natural color of red, creates a yellowish color. Mix that with blue, and you get green.
    So, with all of that information, and the interference of man in the harvesting, you may get something very close to what it advertises, but not 100%. The most pure breed is probably red bali. The reason is because its natural coloring comes from the Sun’s red beams, and Bali is toward the bottom of the geographical area of harvest. So red bali is supposed to be the best relaxing, sedating type. So because Thailand is at the top, why is red thai not even moreso a sedating type. Well, that’s because it’s grown over 3,000 miles away and it happens to get a different amount of sunlight. It would be hard to find real, white thai. Maybe yellow or gold due to man interference.
    But again, now days, there is so much man interference, what you are getting, especially if imported (like in the U.S.), is not mitragyna speciosa at its purest. I’m sure that reputable companies get the best they can get, but think about it, do you think these mom and pop outfits are going to South East Asia for over 2 years and harvesting these crops across over 3,000 miles of land? I highly doubt it. But, the mom and pop companies are most likely the best to build a business relationship with the harvesters and likely get the purest they can get. So if you want the best kratom, you’ll need to book a plane ticket to this part of the world, spend a few years learning the harvest, then another couple to reach its maturity.
    But Seriously…Here’s a summary
    Red- relaxing qualitites; purest sun grown
    Green- A little less Sun and a little more natural “green plant” color; middle of the row effects.
    White: Likely another source of light to go with the Sun’s; seems to be the most energetic
    Now, let’s cross reference that with the land in which its grown…
    Thai is going to be your most active, along with neiboring countries like Vietnam, or even the “pimp”, Maeng Da.
    After swimming across the Gulf of Thailand, you will find your moderate, mid-range stains, such as Sumatra, and the many Malaysian types. Head East and you will find your Indo, with a bit more potency. Then finally, head south to Bali where you find the most sedative types.
    So, in a nutshell, if I were to guess the purest breeds of each color, based on my extensive reseach, experience and experimentation…
    Red Bali
    Green Malaysian or Sumatra
    White Indo
    Hope this helps!

      Bali K isn’t grown in Bali. Against the law to grow in Bali. Bali is the main port where the Bali strain comes through. Google it.
