What is Red Indo Kratom Good For? 

Red Indo Kratom is used for many different things. I’ve personally used this strain for body discomforts I get from going too hard at the gym. 

But, it’s used for plenty of other reasons. I’ve recently talked to some kratom customers about their uses for Red Indo Kratom. Here’s a quick list I gathered from these Red Indo Kratom users:

  • Body Discomfort

Tons of people use red kratom strains for body discomfort and ailments. A lot of Red Indo customers tell me that it helps them with body discomfort.

The list goes on. But they typically take a higher dosage when they have more discomfort. 

Like I said, I’ve used this strain for my backaches and I did notice it has helped better manage the discomfort than if I wasn’t taking anything at all. 

  • Better Sleep 

Red Kratom strains can be amazing for getting better sleep. It’s yet another reason why  people like red strains like kratom Red Indo.

I didn’t find that Red Indo was the best for getting better sleep, but everyone is different. Red strains in general cause sedation and sometimes, larger amounts can make you feel drowsy and ready to knock out. 

You can try a moderate dosage a few hours before bed to relax your body and mind so that it better prepares you to fall asleep 

  • Recreational Use 

Sometimes, it’s nice to take a break from the hectic, everyday life and unwind a little. 

Red Indo Kratom can always be a great way to just chill out and enjoy yourself. 

What I like about kratom is that it isn’t like smoking weed or doing other drugs. It can provide similar effects with little to no repercussions. 

If you’re looking to come off drugs or need to take a break from weed because of your job, you can try Red Indo for similar relaxation and recreational usage. 

Effects of Red Indo Kratom

Red Indo Kratom’s effects usually kick in within 15-30 minutes depending on how you take it. After taking it, I found the effects to last for about 3 hours. 

The effects of Red Indo Kratom are desirable, but I found it to be alright in some areas and great in others. 

Let’s go over what these effects are and my personal input on how well it performs for some of these outcomes: 

  • Sedative 

I found it to be sedative but not too much like other red strains. It won’t make you feel like you want to fall asleep immediately, but at higher doses and can be very sedative for some. 

In order to get this effect, I recommend you start with a mild to moderate dosage. You can increase by half a gram an hour later if you’re not feeling anything. 

Just a heads up, it’s not going to be sedative for everyone. It’s best to slowly increase to see if it gives you energy or is super relaxing. 

  • Relaxes Body and Mind

Red Vein Indo can be really amazing for relaxation. That’s one of this strains best qualities, hands down. 

When I last took Red Indo Kratom, I felt really calm. It felt like a clean relaxing red strain to me, but it wasn’t too relaxing to the point that I couldn’t get things done. 

Overall, it’s good for relaxing your mind and body.

  • Reduces stress

Too many people suffer from stress. It’s a lot more common and people look for ways to help manage these. 

I get hit with stress from time to time and kratom has always been a saving grace for me. It helps get me out of a rut and keeps my stress levels low. 

Red Indo is a great option to help reduce stress. The right amount can have you feeling optimistic and great. 

  • Increased Energy/Stimulation for Some

Surprisingly, some people feel a bit of energy and stimulation from this strain. 

I didn’t experience this intense stimulation, but this tells me that Red Indo isn’t your typical red strain. 

It’s very similar to a green strain, with slight energy and slight discomfort relief. 

What is Red Indo Kratom?

Red Indo Kratom is a red vein strain that is cultivated and found in the forests of Indonesia. 

Indonesia, along with other Southeast Asian countries, provide the best kratom strains in the world. Their kratom often contains high amounts of alkaloids, such as mitragynine, which are what gives kratom their potency.

Why, so? It all comes down to the climate and soil that these kratom trees grow in. Indonesia has a moist, tropical climate that helps the kratom leaves thrive.

Indonesians are awesome kratom growers and farmers, making this strain high-quality. 

Capsules and Powder 

With kratom’s market growing and expanding all over the world because of its popularity, they’ve come up with different methods you can enjoy kratom in. 

The two most popular ways are kratom powder and capsules. There’s good and bad things about both. 

Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each.


Kratom powder is the most popular way to take kratom. It’s what I use the most. 


  • Versatile – Can make it into kratom teas, put it in smoothies, cook with it, or take it directly in your mouth and wash it down with water. 
  • Affordable –  You can buy a hefty amount for a great price.
  • Can Measure it Yourself – You can control an exact amount that you want to take. 


  • Messy – The powder goes all over the place. You can’t carry it with you everywhere because it’s not as convenient.
  • Very bitter- This is a huge downside. It can be super bitter, making it harder to enjoy the process


This is becoming more and more popular. Here’s why: 


  • It’s measured out for you- No need to get your scale or spoon out. 
  • Easy to take- You just take a few of these and take it with water. No need to make it into a tea. 
  • Can carry it everywhere. 
  • No bitter taste!


  • Can’t measure out an exact amount.
  • Takes a little longer to break down because of the capsule. 
  • It’s a bit more expensive.

Whatever you choose, it all comes down to personal preference and your budget for kratom. 

How Much Kratom to Take

You might be wondering how much Red Indo kratom to take for the first time. I always recommend starting any strain with about 1.5-2 grams. This is a good starting point. 

You can always increase slowly each day with about 0.5-1 gram until you reach your desired effects.

The best effects are usually felt within the 2.5-5 gram range. Of course, this is going to depend on your weight, gender, tolerance, and if you have food in your system. 

Some people benefit from taking more than 5 grams, but it’s not recommended if you’re new to kratom. 

Red Indo Kratom Dosages (Grams)
Beginners: 1.5-2 grams

Moderate: 2.5-5 grams
Strong: 5-8 grams
Very Strong 8-10 grams

Reddit Reviews for Red Indo Kratom 

Red Indo is often overlooked by some of its other, popular red strain brothers. For that reason, I didn’t find too many reviews for it.

But, I did find some mixed reviews on Reddit: 

I <3 <3 <3 indos – red or green or a mix. I don’t know why but it is the only strain that is consistently relaxing for me.” -DoTownForever

“Obtained sample of Indo Red Vein, what I thought was supposed to be one of the more relaxing-sedating strains. I first started with 2 teaspoons = approx 10 grams, but was feeling a little too speedy.” -Dustov

Seems like Red Indo varies a lot in terms of effects. 

Red Indo Kratom Vs Green Malay Kratom for Insomnia

You might be wondering which is better for insomnia, Red Vein Indo kratom or Super Green Malay?

Honestly, I’d stick to Green Malay to get better sleep. I’ve talked to tons of people that say Green Malay was more sedative and strong that Red Indo. 

I did notice I had slight energy with Red Indo, which is why I felt it leaned more towards a green strain. But, Green Malay can be more sedative than other green strains. 

It’s going to depend on your body and where you get your kratom from. I recommend you try both to see which one works best. 

Getting Kratom Online 

You can buy Red Indo Kratom online for cheap! I always get mine online because it’s so convenient and easy.  

Places like Kratom Krush, and other online stores, offer free shipping and amazing deals 

Just be sure to check if you’re able to have it shipped legally to your state, as some states haven’t legalized kratom yet.
