As kratom is becoming more and more mainstream, it is important to know that there are many strains of kratom available for use. Each strain has its own unique benefits so it helps to know a bit about each particular strain so that you can find that one that works best for you.
Red Indo Kratom is quickly becoming one of the best-selling strains of kratom. Find out what makes it so special in the following review. We shall briefly delve into some general information about kratom as well as discuss red Indo kratom, where to find it, and how to use it.
What exactly is kratom and why is it so popular? To put it simply, kratom is a herbal supplement that yields similar effects to coffee beans. As it is indeed a member of the same family, kratom is said to have a great many positive effects.
However, as it is not yet approved by the FDA in the United States, it must be said that kratom is not for everyone and users should consume with caution. As such, each user might experience different effects and varying degrees of said effects.
The above being duly noted kratom leaves come from the Mitragyna Speciosa tree, native to Southeast Asia. This ancient tree thrives under tropical conditions and can grow as tall as one hundred feet. Kratom trees, as they are commonly called, contain dozens of naturally occurring compounds called alkaloids that are believed to have many pleasant effects.
Traditionally, these levees were merely chewed upon or brewed as teas in order for one to fully experience the effects. However, today kratom is also distributed as a powder, capsule, or even an extract.
Kratom has various strains, or veins, each with its own alkaloid makeup. The alkaloids that are the most powerful in kratom leaves are 7-hydroxy mitragynine and Mitragynine. These compounds are what make kratom such a powerful force.
Most known are red vein kratom, white vein kratom, and green vein kratom. The color of the strain varies upon the age of the leaf when it was sourced, the manner in which those leaves are dried, and the various combinations of these popular veins. Often strains of kratom such as gold vein and yellow vein kratom are a hybrid of one or more of the aforementioned veins.
Once the kratom leaves are harvested and dried, they are crushed into a fine powder and typically sold in capsule or powder form. Kratom extracts are also available, but they tend to be more expensive than other forms of kratom. Kratom teas and dried kratom leaves can also be found for sale from respected kratom vendors.
There are different techniques under which kratom leaves are dried. Some are dried outdoors in direct sunlight, while others are dried under dark conditions or varying levels of ultraviolet lighting. Some strains of kratom are first dried outdoors, then again indoors, or vice versa, to strengthen the alkaloids.
These kratom strains may be mixed to form hybrid strains of varying levels of effectiveness. For example, white and green kratom may be combined to yield a more mild effect while red and white may be blended to produce higher levels of alkaloids. Again, these effects are dependent upon the user.
Red Indo Kratom
So what is Red Indo Kratom and how does it differ from other strains, particularly red vein kratom veins?
Red Indo Kratom is sourced from Indonesia, hence the name. Indonesia is one of the main places in which kratom is harvested. The kratom tree grows abundantly in this region thanks to the unique climate conditions such as humidity, sunlight, and rainfall.
As such, there are quite a few strains of kratom that are sourced from Indonesian kratom trees, however, Red Indo Kratom is one of the most highly sought-after kratom stains, especially amongst regular kratom users.
Red Indo Kratom is high in both Mitragynine and 7-hydroxy mitragynine. However, what makes Red Indo Kratom special is that it has higher amounts of the latter, which is attributed to its unique qualities.
How is Red Indo Kratom best used?
Red Indo Kratom is sold in many forms and has a multitude of ways in which it can be consumed. The most popular of these are kratom powders and kratom capsules.
Kratom capsules are one of the top sellers of Red Indo Kratom. They are sold in pre-measured doses which contribute to their hefty price tag. However, according to many kratom users, they are preferred to kratom powder as they help deter the bitter taste often associated with kratom.
On the other hand, kratom power is also a big seller. This is partially due to the fact that it is more cost-effective due as it can often be purchased in bulk quantities. It is also extremely versatile as it can be added to your favorite beverage, used as a tasty additive in both baking and cooking. Recipes for both kratom beverages and dishes can be found easily online, as kratom users often share their favorites in their kratom blogs.
Seasoned kratom users often use kratom powder for a method that is commonly known as “Toss and Wash.” This is not recommended for those who are just starting out with kratom. In this method, the user simply ‘tosses’ the stated amount of kratom in their mouth and ‘washes’ it down with water. This is believed to strengthen the effect and lessen the time it takes for kratom to be absorbed. Again, this method is not for beginners.
Kratom extracts are also a thing, but these are another item that is geared toward those who are more experienced kratom connoisseurs. The concentration level of alkaloids is higher in extracts and also they tend to cost more, as they are time-consuming to produce. However, kratom extracts are in the mainstream with veteran kratom users.
