If you’ve ever wondered what it must be like to be Matthew McConnaughey, you’re probably a fan of the herb. Well, Red Vietnam might give you a pretty solid indication of what it’s like to answer any of life’s tough questions with a crunchy refrain worthy of McConnaughey’s famous, “Alright, alright, alright.”

As one of the newest additions to the Mitragyna speciosa catalog, Red Vietnam Kratom is a must-have for American and European audiences alike. This mild, mellow strain is fresh to the Western marketplace, but it’s actually been around for hundreds of years.

A traditional Vietnamese folk medicine that has often been incorporated into local culinary delights, Red Vietnam is a versatile cultivar that can be implemented in a variety of ways—as a stand-alone cup of tea, as a liquid kratom shot or as part of a well-rounded cocktail.

Over the last few years, some of the top-rated kratom suppliers in the United States have begun sourcing some of the finest red-vein“kakuam” in NAM. Now that almost anyone can score some Red Vietnam, there are some things everyone needs to know.


Red Vietnam is a strain of Mitragyna speciosa that grows along the Mekong River in Southwest Vietnam. These massive evergreen trees are nestled among the coconut palms and mangroves of the Cajaput forests where the acid sulphate soil composition contributes to the density and sturdiness of this incredible herb.

The porous cups of in the soil columns loans to the remarkable cell density of the kratom leaves and the intricacy of its root system. Consequently, this red vein kratom grows to enormous heights, reaching peak maturity prior to harvest.


As of 2020, both kratom and cannabis are legal for medical and recreational usage in Vietnam. Because the Mitragyna speciosa herb is unregulated in the country, it has become a vital part of the local dry marketplace.

In more recent years, Red Vietnam Kratom has become an integral part of the International economy, accounting for a large part of regional exportation. This is where U.S. Kratom vendors come in. Some of the most trusted American sellers have worked closely with Vietnamese nông phu to source highly potent plant matter.

Today, you can buy kratom just about anywhere, but the best place to buy kratom online matters. Smoke shops are invariably spotty, often selling products with dangerous additives and a lack of proper labeling.

By contrast, the top online stores provide detailed information, third party lab results and a satisfaction guarantee. This extends to Red Vietnam kratom powder as much as any other strains.


Some have suggested that Vietnam kratom contains 25% higher concentrations of alkaloids than other M. speciosa cultivars. While this isn’t necessarily true, each batch I’ve come across tests higher than most.

As with many other variants, Red Vietnam Kratom contains no fewer than 25 unique alkaloids, including the terpenoid indole alkaloid 7-hydroxymitragynine which works on multiple receptors in your brain.

The effects of Red Vietnam vary based on dosage and personal sensitivity. They may include any of the following:

  • Mild invigoration
  • General sense of well-being
  • Moderate exhilaration
  • Serenity
  • Clarity of thought
  • Restful sleep

At certain dosage levels, Red Vietnam may be useful to those who are looking to be more active. Individuals who are into endurance sports and prolonged workouts typically microdose Red Vietnam as a pre-workout routine.

Since kratom is a bit of a nootropic botanical, this strain may be a worthy addition to one’s regimen when cramming for exams or planning out a work project. Many students and academics have embraced kratom for this very reason.

Many have found this strain to be astounding in terms of its abrupt mechanism of action. Since kratom swiftly crosses the blood-brain barrier, its “aroma” may be felt within 15 minutes or less. Much of this fast-acting “release” depends on whether or not you have brewed it on an empty stomach.

Conversely, my girlfriend has said that it soothes her stomach when she’s feeling queasy and its fragrant scent is akin to lavender or other essential oils in its tranquility.


Lots of people are surprised by just how long this one sticks around. Some have said that it’s capable of outlasting the ever-popular Maeng Da, with a duration of no less than six hours and a likelihood of residual effects extending as long as seven or eight hours.

In my experience, there has never been any undesirable comedown with this strain. When its aroma has diminished I am left feeling satisfied and replenished. No headache. No nausea. No B.S.


Getting your dosage right can make all the difference in the world. If you take too much kratom, especially your first time out, you are likely to have a negative experience.

Although kratom is all-natural, it is nevertheless potent and potentially dangerous. Higher dosages tend to potentiate adverse effects and produce an intensity that is too much for the casual user.

For the best results, one should always start at the threshold and slowly increase their gram amount as they acclimate to its aroma. The following is a general dosage guideline:

  • Threshold – 1.5-2 grams
  • Low—2-3 grams
  • Moderate—3-5 grams
  • High—6-8 grams

A responsible dosage consists of no more than 5 grams in one sitting. This is the sweet spot for most seasoned kratomites who have grown accustomed to small batch kratom and its myriad of purported benefits.

Those suffering from preexisting health conditions, such as high blood pressure, respiratory issues and/or kidney and liver problems should avoid kratom consumption.

Large dosages of M. speciosa have been linked to respiratory depression, elevated heart rate, liver damage, cardiac arrest, kidney failure and death in persons who take prescription medications.

Pregnant and lactating moms should not take kratom as it may be detrimental to the well-being of them and their unborn children. The FDA has not approved kratom for medicinal use, therefore it is only offered for research purposes.


There are many kind of kratom for sale, particularly where red veins are concerned. One of the oldest and most fashionable is Red Vein Bali. Reviewers frequently compare other strains to the Bali cultivar, whether they are talking about similarities or differences.

In the case of Red Vietnam, the two share much in common. Like Bali, Vietnam Kratom is known for its delicate boost, its mild relief and its waves of moderate exhilaration.

Unlike Bali, however, Red Vein Vietnam’s tantalizing mouth-feel and pleasant smell makes it ideal in powder form. Whereas Bali strains typically bear a black tea-like fragrance, Vietnam strains usually carry a more sweet and earthy aroma.



The first time I sampled some Mekong River kratom, I found it to be sweeter and more mellifluous than I would have expected. Normally I keep a wide berth between me and reds because they have a tendency of making me sleepy. Not the case with this one.

Although I experienced all of the tranquility and repose one would expect of reds, I wasn’t at all lethargic. On the contrary, I felt like I could accomplish everything I needed to while taking my time and slowing down. Work came easier and felt more rewarding.

Mind you, I only took 3.5 grams in pomegranate juice and did not double up on my dosage. Regardless, the experience was one of lucidity, relaxation and restoration.


I strongly recommend this strain to anyone who wishes to kick off their shoes at work and enjoy the inherent value in everyday things. It’s a lovely choice for anyone who wants to put a smile on their face and a spring in their step.
