Red Horn Kratom – Origin, Effects, & Dosage

Red Horn Kratom Effects and Dosage

The Red Horn Kratom is a rare strain of Kratom that is reportedly harder to grow and cultivate as compared to other strains. Since it is one of the rarest variety, it is not readily available.

Red Horn is usually confused with Maeng Da strain. However, the two are not the same, though they have so many similar points, especially the typical spikes in their leaves. Like Maeng Da, it is also a potent type and contains a higher amount of alkaloids but with a unique profile. Often described as the unpredictable strain, the effect of Red Horn may vary – slow, medium or fast.

Red Horn Kratom Review

Origin of Red Horn Kratom

The Red Horn Kratom is native in many Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand, Indonesia, and Borneo. It is a highly rare strain that is believed to be a hybrid of the Red-veined and the Maeng Da strains. Also called as ‘tri-horned’ or ‘spiked leaf’, the Red Horn leaves have jagged tip similar to Maeng Da leaf. In fact, the leaf tips look like a “horn”, hence the name.  The lower part of the leaf looks like that of the Red-veined strain.

It is grown in a limited number and the leaves are usually pre-traded prior to harvest. The harvester only gathers horned red-veined leaves from suitable mature Kratom trees and never mix with other types of leaf.

Red Horn has a high market value due to distinct therapeutic benefits.

Suggested Dosage of Red Horn Kratom

Because this strain has a high potency, it is advised to use it with extra care. You will notice the effect even in low dosage (1 to 3 grams per day). In fact, for most people, 1 gram of powdered Red Horn Kratom is already enough.

The Red Horn Kratom offers a number of benefits. It is a natural painkiller that is effective in helping alleviate chronic pains. Unlike other strains, the effect leans more on the healing side and less on the euphoric effect.

The stimulating and euphoric experience can be noticed when taken in a higher dose (above 9 grams), which is far beyond the proper dosage. Users can feel a sensation of excitement.

The relaxing and soothing effects are also strong in Red Horn. It is ideal to take in the evening if you want to relax and recharge. Apart from its medicinal value, the effects are unpredictable, depending on the person taking it. It can enhance the mood, ease anxiety, boost energy and reduce body pain.

For first-time users, it is best to start with a low dose, ideally 1-2 gram. But for medicinal purposes such as pain, a higher dosage may be taken. The effect can last between 3 to 6 hours.

User reviews of Red Horn Kratom

Based on various discussions from popular social forums, users reported that even a minimal dose of Red Horn Kratom initiated effects. A majority said that they’re really satisfied with it, making them feel happy, energetic and spirited by improving their mood and alleviating pain.

Users also reported that to achieve the euphoric effect and improvement of mood, the ideal dosage to take is 4 to 6 grams. Most people regard Red Horn Kratom as an herb from paradise as it imparts a distinct effect. Though quite expensive, it was considered as the best Kratom strain, making it highly popular among many Kratom users.


  1. Red Horn by itself never did a whole lot for me. I like Green horn much better. HOWEVER when combining 3 grams of red horn with 3 grams of bali….HOLY GOD! Best euphoria and pain killing combo on the market. I feel like my red horn is either borneo or thai. Very very relaxing and pain killing strain along with the mix of red bali with it. And also it’s good to mix with other red strains as well. But RED BALI+ RED HORN remains my absolute favorite of all the red mixes. For green mixes Green Horn + Green Hulu is one of the best.

  2. I am considering trying this product however I am curious as to the price of 30 gram bags. Do you know how much the red Borneo would cost me? Please respond with information that could help me no more about their kratom and its effectiveness. Thank you in advance.

    • I initially investigated kratom as a means of getting off methadone maintenance. After trying a few strains, I’ve found the reds are great for pain relief and produce a noted euphoric effect. For me, the red maeng da worked better than the red bali, which are the two strains I’ve read are the most proficient. After using it somewhat regularily, it doesn’t seem to produce withdrawal symptoms despite what I’ve read which is a great benefit, although I could see it becoming mentally addictive. Depending on the vendor, it’s around $25 for a 25g bag of red Maeng da, or about the same price for a 50g bag of Red Bali. Although its more expensive, I’ve found Coastline Kratom to be a safe and quality vendor. Good luck!!
