Our more practiced readers already know the charms of MitraGaia, formerly Gaia Ethnobotanical. As one of the oldest names in the business, MitraGaia have indicated their market dominance and well-deserved staying power.
After a myriad of setbacks, this Florida-based brand relaunched to great fanfare under its current imprimatur. Since taking the initiative and voluntarily recalling all of its kratom powder products in 2018, this Jacksonville industry leader has gone above and beyond to ensure purity, potency and salubrity.
Their website boasts a lab results web page with recent certificates of analysis for their green, red and white strains as well as their gold and yellow vein kratom powder. Not only is laboratory assessment disclosed but their GMP quality control standards are backed up by a 30 day return policy.
All of this (and much, much more) has firmly positioned MitraGaia in the number one spot when it comes to top kratom vendors. As I said in my 2019 vendor review, these cats have put out some solid stuff, from their famed Black Diamond 50:1 Extract to their pimptacular Ganesh MD.
But for those of us with a ravenous appetite for the enhancement and enchantment of OG kratom, there can be only one strain to rule them all. I’m speaking, of course, about Gaia Red Horn, the horned leaf kratom strain that’s distinguished not only by the horn-shaped leaves from which it’s derived but, also, by the mysterious transverse of effects.
In today’s review, I’ll hip you to all the majestic properties of this MitraGaia tea. I think you’ll agree that it’s one example of Mitragyna speciosa that earns its staggering hype.

Red Horn Kratom is one of a select number of traditional Mitragyna speciosa cultivars from Southeast Asia. So named for the horn-shaped bulbs of the raw leaf, Red Horn is grown in the humid jungles of Indonesia’s West Kalimantan region.
Unlike a lot of other red vein kratom powder, Gaia Red Horn is old grown, so each tree reaches optimal maturity long before it is sifted for stems and veins. This means that the micronized powder will invariably contain higher concentrations of key chemical components such as the terpenoid indole alkaloid 7-OH (7-hydryoxymitragynine) and the ancillary alkaloids corynoxine and paynantheine.
All told, Red Horn Kratom contains more than 24 alkaloids and flavonoids, all of which work together to produce a lasting aroma that you won’t soon forget. If that sounds like the hyperbole that has come to typify the often shady kratom marketplace, just try it for yourself and tell me I’m wrong.
The real goshwow moment occurs almost as soon as you brew this baby. Gaia Red Horn typically kicks in within 10 minutes or less, depending on your dosage and personal sensitivity. At a dosage of 3.5 to 4 grams, seasoned users may be greeted by an influx of positive sensations including heightened awareness, creative thought and sharpened focus.
Commonly reported effects of Red Horn include the following:
All of Gaia’s mitra teas start at five bucks for a 28 gram pouch. Conversely, you can pick up a 250 gram pouch for $30 or go full bore with a kratom kilo for the industry standard price of $120.00.
A one ounce bag of kratom caps will run you $6.99 while a 250 gram count costs $39.99. You can score a kilo of capsules for the same price as a kilo of raw powder. I highly recommend that caps since they save you the mess and hassle of making your own DIY caps at home.
As with other top-rated kratom suppliers, MitraGaia gives you a wealth of payment methods to choose from. You can remunerate via Coin Payments, credit or debit card, money order or ACH.
If you have a digital wallet you’re looking to use, I’d suggest contacting this vendor directly to confirm that your form of crypto is accepted. This will save you time and may even save you money.
Speaking of which, each time you purchase Red Horn from this seller, you automatically receive points that are redeemable toward your next order.
This seller regularly offers special deals to their loyal customer base. This extends beyond 10% off promo codes to sitewide clearances such as their coveted Customer Appreciation Flash Sale. The former is readily available on verified coupon clipper sites while the latter has made it possible for regulars to receive powdered kilos for as a little as $79.00.
This Floridian vendor has been the toast of the online kratom forum communities for some time, so it’s little surprise that their Red Horn has attracted a devoted following.
Over on Reddit, a user posted about the unique aroma of this strain, writing, “I really liked their red horn. To me it was a red MD. Nice energy but with that red feel to it still. However… this was a batch from either November or December so I can’t speak for anything recent.. it took me about a week to adjust to it but once I did I finished it off pretty quick.”
Elsewhere, a group of users shared their love of this variant with one user calling it their favorite strain and noting the uplifting and exhilarating qualities it possessed. Another user echoed this sentiment, saying, “I feel the same way. I just recent got some Red horn and it is a winner for sure. I love it. Like you said, calming and clean.”
A longtime kratomite at Double M Herbals said, “This is a fantastic red for me to blend into daytime strains for additional duration, analgesic qualities and to take the “edge” off the over abundance of energy I sometimes get. The mood lift isn’t incredible but it makes up for that with the aforementioned qualities in spades making it my fav.”
As you can see, Gaia knows how to deliver the goods when it comes to red veins and Horned Kratom is the gold standard by any metric. If you’re looking for a clean experience with an awesome balance this herb’s your ticket to ride. Just be sure to start small and rotate. Be safe, be smart and be well.
