Curious about Red Thai? You’re in the right place. We’re going to go over what makes this particular type of Kratom unique from all of the other options, some thoughts you should keep in mind when ordering it, where the name comes from and what it means, and more!
First things first, the name “Red Thai” refers to two distinct characteristics. First of all, “red” is describing the color of the veins of the leaf. Much like humans have veins that run through our bodies, leaves have similar looking patterns on them. If you can’t imagine it, just pick up a leaf the next time you’re walking down the street, and you’ll most likely notice little veins coming off of the stem.
Some people get confused, expecting the Kratom powder itself to be red in color, but in reality it’s just the veins of the leaf that are red, and that little bit of redness among otherwise green leaves isn’t really enough to change the color from green when it’s all ground up and mixed together.
The second part is self-explanatory, “Thai” represents Thailand, which is believed to be the birthplace of this particular strain. There’s also Borneo Kratom, Bali, and a number of others.
What Makes Red Thai Unique?
One of the reasons that people seek out Red Thai Kratom is for the properties that are shared with other Red Vein strains, namely analgesic pain relief, sedative properties, and relaxation.
It’s known as one of the more relaxing strains out there, so it’s not the top pick for people who are looking for energy or mental focus (Look to green or white strains, according to many user-reviews.)
Everyone’s experiences will be different, so it’s helpful to look at reviews to get an idea of what to expect.
Some people have expressed that Bali strains can make their stomachs feel a bit uneasy, and some have said they don’t experience that with Red Thai.
Before you buy any Kratom, it’s important to understand that not all providers out there are equal. Some will try to charge a fortune for shipping, others may try to pass off lower quality products. We offer free shipping, and we’re based in the USA, and our Kratoms are all lab-tested.
