One of the questions I get the most is:
“What is the strongest kratom?”
While this may seem like a simple question, answering it in a single sentence is … difficult.
While Maeng Da, Bali, and Indo are typically thought to be the strongest overall, each individual may require a different set of effects from their kratom.
Because of this, we will overview all strongest kratom strains in each area: pain relief, mood, energy and stress-relief.
By the end of this article, you will know what the strongest kratom strains are and where each of them are most effective.
Like a triathlon gauges its athletes under a variety of different conditions to determine the best and most fit, we too will gauge our strains.
… but instead of bicycling, running and swimming, our categories will be: pain-killing, energy boosting, mood-lifting, and stress-relieving ability.
Pain-killing ability is one of the biggest kratom benefits for many who use it medicinally and is one of the most common of kratom’s medicinal uses.
For this reason, knowing which kratom strain is most effective is essential.
The strongest kratom strains for pain are:

For many, an energy boost is the best effect a strain can offer.
And the energy that a great kratom strain provides is much smoother and more powerful than what caffeine can offer, making it one of the best for focus and difficult or tedious work.
Best strains for Energy:
Top Strains for Energy
Like energetic strains, sedative strains can also be useful for those looking to unwind after a long day of work, or for those with anxiety.
For anxiety, sedation and stress relief, the best strains include:
Top Strains for Anxiety & Stress Relief
The mood-boosting effects are another important area for those looking for the best or most euphoric kratom.
For mood, the best strains include:
Top Strains for Mood
As a result of these characteristics, we can finally answer the question:
The strongest kratom strains are: Maeng Da, Indo (including Borneo and Bali), and Green Malaysian. Both red and green veined kratom of these varieties are considered the strongest due to their higher mood-lifting, pain relieving, and stress-relieving effects.
Because of the differences of these strains, declaring a single ‘strongest kratom strain’ would not do justice to the many uses and positive effects of kratom.
Each individual’s personal brain chemistry plays a large role in the judgement of the strongest kratom, so at the end it falls to each individual to come to this conclusion themselves.
Note: We decided not to include any extracts in this post, as their potency tends to be more a result of the method of extraction than the plant’s inherent qualities.
