It can be hard to choose the right Kratom strain since there are so many dozens of Kratom strains available. Indeed, Amazing Botanicals has over 50 types of Kratom strains. This article discusses the most highly rated Kratom strains based on reviews on Amazing Botanicals, as well as my personal experience.
The most highly rated Kratom strain on Amazing Botanicals by far is Green Maeng Da. Maeng Da in general is known for having a high concentration of alkaloids, and in my experience Maeng Da produces tons of euphoria and energy, especially Green Maeng Da, since Green Kratom strains are known for having more energy.
White Maeng Da, Gold Maeng Da, and Red Maeng Da also rank very high. Red Maeng Da has gone through a fermentation process using sunlight and water to naturally convert Mitragynine into 7-hydroxymitragynine, like all other Red Kratom strains. In other words, Red Maeng Da has more 7-hydroxymitragynine, and therefore has more sedating and opioid effects.
Indeed, I wrote an experience report about Red Maeng Da on Kratom Cafe previously, and basically it had all the energy and euphoria of Maeng Da, but was followed by strong sedation towards the end of the experience.
As for White Maeng Da, it is somewhere in the middle, with a mix of the pure energy of Green Maeng Da and the sedation of Red Maeng Da.
Another very highly rated Kratom strain is Bali, including Red Bali, Green Bali, and Gold Bali. Red Bali is actually my favorite Kratom strain by far, since it provides the strongest opioid effects, meaning it is the most pain killing and relaxing, while simultaneously having lots of euphoria. Basically, for people that need to really relax, sleep, or are taking Kratom for pain issues, Red Bali is usually the best strain.
Likewise, Gold Bali has all the properties described above for Red Bali, but is perhaps even a bit stronger since it undergoes a specialized drying process after the fermentation process to increase the concentration of 7-hydroxymitragynine even further.
As for Green Bali, it is an excellent choice for people who need painkilling effects but need to stay up for work. Basically, Green Bali provides excellent painkilling properties, but simultaneously has more energy, making it perfect for daytime activities, whereas Red and Gold Bali are better for times when you are not at work.
Thus, if you are a new Kratom user and do not know which strain to pick out of the dozens of strains available, Maeng Da and Bali are always the best bet. Bali is the best for painkilling and relaxation, while Maeng Da has the most energy and euphoric stimulant effects. Further, you can choose Red and Gold strains of Maeng Da and Bali for times of relaxation, and Green strains of Maeng Da and Bali for times of work, and White strains of Maeng Da and Bali if you want something in-between.
