As all red vein strains red Thai is one with strong effects that may affect you in moderate doses (which also depends on how long you have been using Kratom, what doses and strains).
Red Thai is one of the most popular strains that are favored by many users that want to experience strong opiate-like effects. But one must keep in mind that the effects of red Thai (as in most red vein strains) are dose-dependent, meaning that the effects that you will experience are very dependent on how high or low the dose you take is. To name the effects of red Thai:
- Strong sedating effect (moderate-to-high doses)
- Strong pain relieving effect (the strength of this effect is dose-dependent)
- Tiredness relieving effect (moderate and high doses)
- Mood-enhancing effect (not a dose-dependent effect)
- Moderate energetic effect (low doses)
From this we can see that red Thai effects are very much alike opiate drugs effects (as Kratom is an opiate agonist itself) and it is a must to say that one should be aware of overdoing it, as the side-effects are also the same as of opiates:
- Excessive sweating
- Disorientation in some cases
- Muscle spasms and cramps
- Elevated body temperature
So always regulate the dose you take and make sure that the dose you take is one you can handle.
Red Thai is one strain that has received tons of positive reviews and is rated 5/5 by almost every user. So what makes red Thai so special? Many things if being honest with you!
First of all, red Thai is popular enough to be sold by every vendor and is not difficult to find at all. You won’t need to spend a lot of time to find it from special vendors as you would do with ultra-enhanced and other fancy strains like green Malay kratom. It is a must to mention that, as it is very popular and sold everywhere, the price is quite affordable. But if you don’t want to spend a lot of time and money where to buy kratom very often, there is a solution: besides being a very strong strain it is also the perfect strain for making tinctures and very concentrated extracts out of it! Users have posted a lot of recipes and methods to make great tinctures and extracts that will last you for long, as you will have to take only half your regular dose or even less in order to experience strong effects. But you need to take tinctures and strong extracts with special caution, as you can overdose them and experience severe side-effects by taking a seemingly small dose. Users have reported cases where they underestimated the strength of red Thai tinctures and experienced unwanted side-effects like vomiting, dizziness, headaches etc.
Another great thing that users love about red Thai is its strong painkilling effect. Users claim that it helps a lot. Not only it relieves mild acute pain, but also relieves strong chronic pain (migraine, strong pain after surgical procedures, tunnel syndrome etc.) and even helps when prescription drugs do not help at all! Many users that experienced chronic pain report this.
It is also very important to say that red Thai is one of the best red vein strains to remove severe withdrawal symptoms and treat opiate addiction, as it has been traditionally used by Thai people to treat opiate addiction. This is due to the fact that it can totally compensate the effects of heroin or morphine (as it is an opiate analog by itself) and completely manage withdrawal syndrome and after that one will gradually get off the needle and start using Kratom, which he\she can get off very easily. It is a lot cheaper and more effective than most procedures.
So it is obvious that this particular strain is one of the best which you can buy and use for a lot of reasons, most of which are mentioned above. The only thing you have to be careful with is using large doses, as it can give side-effects more severe than any stain (meaning green and white strains).
