Some of the strongest kratom strains are finally pinpointed. You’ll learn and find the best type of kratom for your needs.

Perhaps you’ve tried kratom before and expected pain relief but nothing happened. Maybe you tried a strain to curb insomnia so you can fall asleep without pain and wake up energized?

What is The Best Kratom?

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 specific strongest kratom. Enjoy.

Best Kratom for Pain

Red Bali is 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 kratom.

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.

Best 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.

Strongest Kratom for Relaxation

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.

Strongest 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.

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.

    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.

      I completely agree with you!

      Whicj is better to take for pain and energy

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.
