Currently, Indonesia is the largest exporter of Kratom. Indonesian Kratom grows in abundance in this region due to the conducive climatic conditions such as evenly distributed rainfall, ideal humidity, and sunlight, which makes it one of the best places to cultivate and produce Kratom.
Since Kratom has grown in Indonesia for thousands of years, one can find many plantations in Indonesia, which have mastered the process of cultivating, harvesting and processing the leaves. The pleasant climatic conditions, along with suitable growing and drying techniques makes Indo Kratom one of the best available.
There are several strains of Indo Kratom such as the white, green and red varieties, but one of the bestselling strains is the Red Vein Indo.
What is Red Vein Indo Kratom?
Red Vein Indo Kratom is a strain derived from the leaves of Mitragyna speciosa that grows in the old forests of Indonesia. It is the same Kratom species but with distinct red veins that can be noticed by the naked eye.
From the midrib to the veins and even the small-netted veins have that distinct red hue characteristic. When processed into a powder, the red tinge is also evident. The red vein is believed to be tougher than the typical cell walls, which is the reason why some users reported that the effects take a while to kick in.
The specific area where Red Vein Indo grows affects the quality of Kratom leaves produced, as well as the age of every leaf. Excellent quality products are manufactured from mature leaves since this contains the highest content of alkaloid.
The Red Vein Indo contains a higher level of Mitragynine than any other Kratom strain. It is known to have mood—lifting and sedating nature that can help relieve anxiety, stress tension, depression and other similar symptoms. The sedating effect makes relaxation more soothing and pleasant. Traditional Indonesian medicine uses Indo Kratom as the main component for stress.
What are the Effects of Red Indo Kratom?
Red Vein Indo offers a wide array of benefits. Though this herb takes long to kick in, once it takes effect, the impact is incredibly soothing. While the results are purely subjective and individually different as they are based on user reports, overall, Kratom helps increase focus, relieve tension, anxiety, and stress; reduce pain and relax muscular tension.
Unlike over-the-counter pain medications such as Ibuprofen or Tylenol, Red Vein Indo Kratom doesn’t have addictive qualities. Hence, it is less likely to be abused by its users. While it has a sedative property, it doesn’t cause total lethargy, making a person unable to do daily activities.
Another reason why the Red Vein Indo is known is that one can perform their usual activities without aches, anxiety, stress or pains. However, based on various user recommendations and experiences, it is best to use Red Vein Indo when you have an hour or two to rest or sit back.
As for the adverse effects, there are rare cases of restlessness and anxiety after consumption of Red Vein Indo. However, this could be from taking high dosage or above the maximum suggested dose of 8 to 10 grams. People with a high metabolism, who weigh less and can’t tolerate Kratom shouldn’t take more than 8 grams.
Other side effects of Red Vein Indo include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, excessive laziness and double vision. As mentioned, these effects vary from person to person, so it is crucial to take Kratom as recommended.
Which Alkaloids are Present in Red Vein Indo?
Nearly all Kratom with red vein have higher than average level of 7-, and this includes the Red Vein Indo. This specific alkaloid is known to have natural pain-relieving action and may influence mood.
Overall, there are over 25 alkaloids present in Kratom leaf, and these naturally-occurring phytochemicals can be found within the veins and leaves. While there are alkaloids present in the leaf’s stem, they don’t provide the same benefits. Hence, users should be sure that the Kratom powder they are buying is sourced exclusively from the plant’s veins and leaves, without the stem.
What is the Recommended Dosage of Red Vein Indo Kratom?
When a person takes Red Vein Indo for the first time, it’s important to be extra cautious with the dosage. While it can be increased or adjusted, first-time users should begin with a lower dosage.
Based on user experiences, the threshold dose or the dose a person can start to feel the effects of Red Vein is 1 to 2 grams. This dosage range may gradually be increased by 500mg after every hour.
The average dose is between 3 to 5 grams of Red Vein Indo leaf powder. Those with higher tolerance to Kratom can take up to 8 grams but no more than this. We advise to consume Kratom in moderation and allow your body to tell you if you need to increase the dose or reduce it.
How is Red Vein Indo Different From Other Red Vein Strains?
Compared to other Red Vein Kratom strains, the Red Vein Indo contains the highest amount of Mitragynine in it. This alkaloid is more beneficial for relaxation and relieving pain.
Mitragynine, which is generally the active compound of Kratom, has natural analgesic quality as it blocks the pain receptors in the brain. Further, the Red Vein Indo has the toughest cellular walls of the leaves, which is the reason why it takes some time for the body to metabolize it. The result is that the effect takes longer to kick in, but it lasts much longer than other red vein strains.
How is Red Vein Indo differ from Red Bali? Bali is an island that is part of the Indonesian territory. Most Kratom consumers get confused with these two strains but to make it clear, Bali and Indo are two different strains. There’s a considerable gap between Red Bali and Red Indo regarding effects.
Based on user reports, the Red Bali tends to be more sedative compared to the Red Vein Indo, as it can still provide a mood-lifting effect. A person can feel more lethargic and inactive when using Red Bali. However, at a specific dose, Red Bali can cause euphoria, which you cannot experience with Red Vein Indo as its effect tends to focus on relaxing a person’s mood.
It’s the reason why you’re likely to experience nausea with Red Bali than with Red Vein Indo. Another difference with Red Vein Indo is that a person may experience a clearer mind, better focus and the ability to think and process, while Red Bali can cause excessive stimulation.
Red Vein Indo User Reviews
Most Kratom users believe that the Red Vein Indo is the best strain to use for those who want to relax but remain focused. Many have reported it to be potent as it relieves them from pain within 1 to 2 hours of using it.
Unlike conventional relaxants, this Kratom strain won’t leave you completely lethargic. It only improves the brain activity along with stress relief. Because of these positive effects, many users consider it to be one of the best red vein strains.

Reports of being extremely stimulated are quite rare, with only 1 or 2 user reports. However, the effects of Kratom vary from person to person.
What are the Side Effects of Red Vein Indo?
The good news is, Red Vein Indo Kratom has the least chances of side effects among other Kratom strains. It will not affect any bodily processes or bring any undesirable results. But since it has a sedative quality, it is important not to take it when driving, operating machinery or attending an occasion.
While the Red Indo powder is the least associated with any side effects, in the worst cases, side effects that may surface include restlessness, fatigue and other similar symptoms. This could happen if you take it on an empty stomach.
This strain is different from the rest. Many Kratom strains are advised to take on an empty stomach, but with Red Vein Indo, this may cause troubles due to its sedating effect. It is important not to take more than the dosage limit. A dose of 8 to 10 grams can be very risky.
In case of overdose, the adverse effects include vomiting, nausea, agitation, dizziness, blurry vision, fatigue, laziness, chills and inability to concentrate and think clearly. These symptoms may arise altogether, or perhaps one to two symptoms may show up. The intensity of the overdose effects differs from person to person.
The soothing characteristics of Red Indo Kratom are best felt when you are about to relax. It is best to set a schedule for low-impact activities such as hanging out with friends, listening to music or appreciating nature.
Red Vein Indo Kratom is readily available and easy to find. Although this strain is often sold under the name Red Vein Indo or Red Indonesian, some companies refer to it – the Indonesian Gem.
