The Red Borneo Kratom is ideally suited as an energizing tea. It has a characteristic smell and a soft taste. The effect is maintained for a long time. This red kratom has a relatively high amount of psychoactive alkaloids. As a result, the effect is powerful and a search for a personal dosage is desirable.
Residents of Kalimantan, the Indonesian part of Borneo, are enthusiastic users of their kratom. They even call it ‘the heavenly leaves of Borneo’. For them, it is an herb against all kinds of ailments. Looking back, they now consider the leaves a traditional medicine. Today they use kratom in all kinds of forms. For example, the leaves as a cigarette.
But modern Kalimantans mainly use it as tea for extra energy. This kratom is particularly suitable for this. It is made from leaves that have been allowed to dry a little longer. This was followed by a special treatment with light fermentation.
Some users report that drinking tea or water with a little of this red Borneo kratom helps with fatigue. It can also relieve a tickly cough. For this kratom, as with all kratom, too high a dose can lead to side effects and habituation.
In addition to your own body weight and sensitivity, the dosage also depends a lot on the strength of the kratom. Normally, 5-10 grams of dried leaves should be enough for inexperienced users. The dosage can be slightly lower with kratom powder, which is usually stronger than regular leaves (3-5 grams). The same goes for extract. Kratom is not addictive when used responsibly and no more than once or twice a month. More experienced users will feel the need to increase the dosage after some time.
Kratom in higher doses tends to have sedative effects, regardless of which strain is used.
Mild Effect: <3 gram
Reasonable/Good Effect: >3-5
Strong Effect: > 5-6 gram
Kratom has a strong effect on your mood and energy. It reduces fears, while the feeling is described as happy, strong and active, with a calm mind and a strong will to work. Thai workers use it to get through the working day. The effects are felt after 5 to 10 minutes and can last for several hours.
Most people call the effects stimulating and euphoric at a low dose and sedative at a higher dose. This can probably be explained by the fact that mitragynine stimulates the delta opiate receptors in small amounts, but as the dose increases, the more and more the mu-opiate receptors stimulate.
Although the main alkaloids in kratom are related to psychedelic substances, kratom does not appear to have psychedelic effects. The main effects are similar to those of opiates: analgesic and cough suppressant, but also narcotic and euphoric. These effects are approximately comparable in strength to codeine.
Some sources claim that kratom, like other opiates, increases sexual desire in women and can reduce erection problems in men. The positive effect of mitragynine on mood and a reduction in anxiety is probably responsible for this.
Other effects of mitragynine include decreased muscle tone, local anesthesia, and central nervous system depression.
Direct negative effects can include dry mouth, increased urination, decreased appetite, and constipation. Unlike opiates, mitragynine usually does not cause nausea or vomiting. Intensive use can result in a mild form of lethargy.
Kratom is not medicine but has a positive effect on things like:
- Improved concentration
- Energy deficiency
- Pain relief
- Reduction of “craving” in addictions

Most Kratom sold online comes in powder. The easiest way to use Kratom powder is to take it together with a simple drink (water or juice). Here’s how you would take Kratom with a drink:
- Take a small sip of your drink, don’t swallow, and keep the drink in your mouth.
- Take the desired amount of Kratom with a spoon and put it inside your mouth.
- Immediately take another big sip of your drink to wash it off.
- Repeat this as many times as needed for your preferred dosing.
Kratom flavor is very bitter, this method allows you to taste the Kratom as little as possible.
You can also make cold or hot tea together or out of Kratom if you feel like doing so.
