Any long-term kratom user will know that Indonesia is by far the biggest exporter of kratom.
Indonesian kratom grows abundantly and wildly in the area due to the ideal rainfall, sunlight and nutrient-stress, making it one of the best regions for high-alkaloid kratom.
Below, you’ll learn more about the effects, best vein types and varieties, and a bit about what makes this Indo one of the strongest kratom strains.
Like it’s cousin strains (Bali and Borneo), Indo kratom provides strong pain relief, strong stress and anxiety relief, and a notable sense of well-being. Indo, especially varieties such as Red and Green Indo can also be somewhat sedating compared to other strains.
Indo Kratom Effects
Something to note is that high quality Indo strains cause much less side effects, such as nausea and wobbles, especially compared to Bali. Because of this, they reported to feel “cleaner” overall.
One of the most common reasons that this strain is so prized is for its pain killing effects.
Like Malaysian strains, the pain killing effects of Indo strains last longer than other strains, likely due to the increased potency and denser cell structure of their leaves.
Many people who use this plant for pain suggest red vein Indo, Borneo or Bali.
However, a red vein Indo strain can often cause sedation, making it not the most ideal day strain type for some.
But for those who want a strong pain relieving kratom with less sedation, Green Indo is a fantastic choice.
Similar to Borneo and Bali strains, Indo kratom strains are often used for anxiety relief.
The sedation from Indo strains combined with their analgesic effects can be highly useful for some. However, some rare white vein indo strains may be too energetic for this purpose. Because of this, a red vein is often the best choice.
Indo kratom strains are some of the most effective varieties for mood boosting, primarily due to its high content of 7-hydroxymitragynine.
However, as noted before, those who are looking for an energetic mood boost are best going for a high mitragynine content leaf, such as white vein indo — or another strain such as a Thai or Maeng Da.
Because of its effects on mood, it has spawned one of the most desired extracts, UEI kratom (also known as ultra enhanced Indo).
Because Indo is a very broad term, and a very broad area, there are different strains with differing effects that grow from the region.
This kratom type is one of the most commonly purchased for a reason: it is potent.
Super Green Indo is unique because it seems to retain the pain killing and relaxing effects of a red vein, while also having some very mild energetic effects.
(Super) Green Indo Effects
One should note, however, that some varieties of green Indo are more sedating than others, so it can vary from vendor to vendor, and plant to plant.
Like other red vein strains, this variety of “evening” Indo can pack quite a punch. Known for its powerful analgesic, mood-lifting and sedative properties, this strain can be far from energetic.
Red Indo Effects
However, some people who enjoy the qualities of this strain mix it with a more energizing strain with good results.
As it is a white vein, it is by far the most stimulating variety of Indo kratom. Those who prefer to have pain relief as well as a boost would enjoy this one.
White Indo Effects
This strain has been commonly known for its “clean” energetic effects, which has been reported to make mentally strenuous tasks much easier.
Overall, Indo kratom is one of the most popular strains, and for good reason. For anyone who hasn’t tried Indo kratom, it is a unique breed and has a lot of potential.
Although very little research has been done, there are a few studies which have dramatically helped us analyze the effects of each individual alkaloid and total alkaloid content.
Both of which contribute dramatically to a greater understanding of what alkaloids are most prevalent in Indo kratom.
Due to the sedation effects and mood boosting, we know that they have a significantly higher proportion of 7-OH-mitragynine than many other strains.
Additionally, they may have proportionally less mitragynine, which is thought to be responsible for most of the plant’s stimulating effects.
Despite this, many studies are necessary in order to fully understand the role that alkaloids play in Indo kratom,
By now you should know a good bit about whether this strain is the right choice for you. Best of luck!
