The relaxing properties make Red Borneo kratom one of the top kratom strains. Let’s take a look at facts and background as well as Red Borneo effects to see what makes this a bestselling strain.
What Is Red Borneo Kratom?
As you may have already guessed, Red Borneo Kratom hails from the island with the same name.
Borneo is a large island in Southeast Asia. As a matter of fact, Borneo is the third largest island in the world, smaller only than Greenland and New Guinea.
Three countries have ownership over the territory of Borneo. They are Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei. The largest section, about 70% of the island, belongs to Indonesia, and that’s where most Borneo kratom comes from.
The climate in Borneo is equatorial. Therefore, it’s always rather warm and humid there. Together with the fertile soil, this makes perfect conditions for Red Borneo kratom to thrive.
While there are kratom farms in Borneo, a lot of it grows in the wild and is harvested from wild trees. However, as long as kratom farmers grow their trees using organic and sustainable practices, you should not feel much of a difference.
Red Borneo Kratom Effects
As a red, this Borneo kratom is a slow strain. It has high levels of 7-hydroxymitragynine, the alkaloid that has strong sedating and analgesic effects. This makes Red Borneo the most sedating kratom strain.
Because of the island’s large size, different areas of Borneo offer different conditions for Borneo kratom. Therefore, the effects of kratom from varying locations of this island won’t be exactly the same.
Below are the most common effects that you can expect from this red kratom strain:
1. Pain Relief
Red Vein Borneo’s properties make it an excellent strain for pain management and relief. It is suitable for dealing with mild, moderate, chronic pain, as well as muscle and joint pain and a variety of health conditions such as fibromyalgia, scoliosis, and more.
2. Better Sleep
Red Borneo’s sedating and analgesic effects can help you improve your sleep quality and deal with insomnia. It can relax you, lower your stress and anxiety levels so that it becomes easier for you to fall asleep. Make sure to take it at a relatively same time every day to help your body adapt and over time get used to a regular bedtime.
3. Stress and Anxiety Relief
As a relaxing strain, Red Vein Borneo kratom can help you lower your stress and anxiety levels. In addition to that, it also has euphoric effects which can help you regulate your mood and focus on the positive.
4. Opiate Withdrawal
The main reasons why people take opioids and other prescription drugs are their analgesic and relaxing effects. That’s exactly what you can expect from Red Borneo Kratom. It’s also exponentially safer.
While opioids have a high risk of respiratory depression, kratom does not. Despite having sedative effects, 7-hydroxymitragynine does not cause respiratory depression. That’s because it does not bind with the same receptors in the brain as opioid drugs do.
As a result, Red Borneo Kratom makes an excellent alternative for pain management for those who are willing to transition from opioid use yet still be able to manage their pain.
5. Mood Boost
Red Borneo kratom provides euphoria and improves the mood. This makes it especially effective when it comes to stress and anxiety relief. So, this strain does not only relax you and ease your worries but also makes you feel more positive.
The mood-boosting effects can work well if you experience depression. Though keep in mind that the sedating effects may make you feel lethargic and make matters worse. If that happens, try more moderate strains such as Green Maeng Da kratom which provide the energy that you may be lacking.
Are Red Borneo and Red Bali the Same
Since both varieties of kratom come from the same island, they’re not one and the same.
Since both are reds, Red Borneo and Red Bali are slow strains and are primarily known and used for their pain-relieving effects. Nonetheless, differences apply. Red Bali leaves a larger, so their alkaloid composition differs. As a result, Red Bali strain is more sedating while Red Borneo provides more euphoria.
Red Borneo Kratom Dosage Tips
The effects of Red Borneo last for 4-6 hours on average. Yet, it’s important to purchase quality kratom as that can determine its potency and length of duration. The grind of your powder will affect the duration too. Courser grinds take longer to break down. Therefore, the effects can be slightly longer and steadier.
Since this strain has relaxing and sedative effects, it’s best taken in the afternoon. Otherwise, it may make you feel drowsy and make it harder to get through the day. Nonetheless, if you opt for smaller doses, then you may be able to take it in the morning. Try (best not on an important workday) and see how it works for you.
The threshold dose for Red Borneo kratom is 1-2 grams. The moderate dose is 3-5 grams, and 5-6 grams is a high dose. 6-8 grams is possible but only recommended for very experienced users.
When it comes to red strains, kratom lovers usually take higher doses. That’s because it normally yields more potent pain-relieving and sedative effects. Yet, that doesn’t mean that you cannot take reds in lower doses. Try and see how you feel.
In addition to that, the effect kratom will have on each individual will depend on a variety of factors such as age, body weight, and activity level. So, if you love staying active, a lower dose may be a more suitable option for you.
If you’re a beginner, we recommend that you do not start off with a higher dose. You risk feeling kratom side effects. Don’t let the news fool you, it won’t be deadly; it’ll simply upset your stomach and not have the best kratom experience.
Trust us with this one and start with the threshold dose instead. If you don’t feel any effects or they are weaker than you’d like them to be, simply add more.
Wait for 30-60 minutes after your initial dose before you do so. Add only 0.5-1 g at a time. Use a digital scale rather than a spoon to do that. You risk measuring your dose incorrectly if you use a spoon. If that’s still not enough, repeat the process as many times as you need.
If you’ve reached 6-8 grams, yet feel no effects, your kratom may not be potent enough. In can be the case with low-quality vendors and can frequently occur when purchasing locally from vendors who do not specialize in kratom. If kratom’s not working for you, try a different vendor before you give up on it.
