Kratom is most well known for its notable painkilling, euphoric, and addiction treating properties, and few strains can accomplish these medicinal feats better than Borneo kratom.
Currently, this region is the world’s largest exporter of kratom, and while there are several reasons for this, one of them is that it has some of the most ideal climates for growing strong kratom; those who have had a good strain from this region know how effective it can be.
A common misconception is that Borneo is a small, sparse island, when in actuality, it is quite the opposite, as it encompasses over 287,000 square miles of space, and a large portion of that is humid tropical jungle; in fact, there are nearly 19 million people inhabiting this island.
Because of the vast size of the island, it is home to differing climates and weather conditions, making its kratom strains fairly diverse compared to many other regions.
Kratom has been used medicinally in this area for thousands of years, but it has increased dramatically over the past decade due to increased demand from the west, increasing competition and leading many kratom farmers to extreme lengths to find the best quality kratom. In fact, the vast majority of this island’s kratom is wildcrafted — still harvested directly from wild mature trees, which populate the area.
Although Borneo strains can vary depending on the region and type, they share many common characteristics which keep them in such high demand.
Borneo is one of the most, if not the most, sedating strain of kratom due to it’s high level of the alkaloid 7-hydroxymitragynine. It is this same alkaloid that gives it the vast majority of its medicinal qualities, such as pain relief, addiction treatment, mood improvement, stress and anxiety relief, and insomnia relief, and with some varieties, even depression relief.
According to most who use Borneo strains, one of the most notable effects is pain relief. The pain relief of these strains, especially red vein borneo strains, is higher than the vast majority of strains, such as Thais, Riaus, and Malays. If your looking for a good strain for pain relief, Indos and Borneos seem to be the most reliably potent for this purpose. Although they share many common characteristics, it may be helpful for those looking for the ideal pain relief strain to know that Borneos are typically slightly more sedating and anxiety relieving than Indo strains, and typically have less in the way of side-effects, such as wobbles, whereas Indo strains tend to last slightly longer on average.
Although many strains can be useful for those trying to get opiates, Borneos tend to be one of the favorites. When using kratom for opiate addiction, many new users tend to try popular strains, such as maeng da, and find them too stimulating, especially when in withdrawal. That said, maeng da strains can be quite effective for breaking and weening off an addiction to stimulants.
Because of the high 7-OHM of this strain, it tends to help fight both the stress, anxiety, and withdrawal symptoms of addiction very effectively without causing side effects at higher dosages. Many have used Borneo strains for this purpose with wonderful effects, and similar to pain relief, red vein strains tend to be the most effective.
Anxiety and stress relief is a category in which this kratom strain is unparalleled. Because of their unique alkaloid profile, these strains tend to be remarkable for this purpose, and many have found them as effective as prescription benzodizepines without the awful side effects of memory loss, brain fog, lack of coordination, etc. Interestingly, a large portion of users find green vein borneos to be most effective for this purpose, although no studies have been done to conclusively determine why this is; borneo red vein strains tend come in at a close second.
For the same reason this strain is great for anxiety and stress relief, it is great for insomnia. Any strain from this region, with the exception of white veins, are highly effective for this purpose, some have even found this strain to inspire interesting dreams.
Because of the difference in vein types, we get unique variations of strains, each with its own unique set of effects.
This variety of kratom, also known as “Borneo Red Vein”, is one of the most popular of these strains, and is considered highly effective for pain relief, euphoria and addiction treatment. This strain tends to last around 4 to 6 hours, depending upon the grind of the leaf. For a new user, I highly suggest this strain.
This strain is one of the most unique kratom strains for both new users and connoisseurs. The profound anti-anxiety and anti-stress potential of this leaf, while also retaining quite potent painkilling effects, is a bit of a marvel. One of the best features of a good variety of this strain is its lack of side effects, even at very high dosages, making its therapeutic potential quite high.
Although it is typically the least popular of these three, it should never be overlooked. This variety has a few remarkable qualities as it blends both stimulation and analgesia into a very natural feeling of clean energy, with some mild euphoria as well. This is the ideal strain for thorough relaxation without sacrificing energy.

With current legislation pending, it seems kratom may no longer be legal in the United States. Although we haven't sold kratom directly in over a year, this legislation will negatively impact hundreds of thousands throughout the country. Please contact your local congressmen.
