Not just a review of the Thai Red product but of the company in general. Can’t say enough positive things about Kratora. The customer service is always very friendly and helpful, especially for a newcomer to kratom such as myself. Products arrive as advertised and very quickly via standard shipping. Outstanding product from an outstanding company. Most highly recommended!

Joshua (verified owner) – April 14, 2018
After learning the hard way, purchasing Kratom from another place, I’ve found out no one comes close to Kratora regarding quality of the product, price, and service. I cannot recommend this product and retailer enough.
Anthony (verified owner) – March 19, 2018

Got my order within a few days. Very professional packaging. I’ve seen stuff from other sites friends have used that just looks shady. This stuff is awesome!! I’ll be grabbing the variety pack now to see what else this lovely plant has to offer!!
Kimberly (verified owner) – February 2, 2018
I was a bit nervous about ordering this online, but Kratora is absolutely legit! Their customer service went above and beyond to fill my order, and I got it in record time (2 business days), all the way from sunny CA. The product is excellent, and does what it is supposed to do. I had some from a head shop that was horrible, and this was a welcome relief to me. I will be back! Thanks to all at Kratora!
Andrew (verified owner) – January 14, 2018

Dan (verified owner) – January 11, 2018

Joshua (verified owner) – October 13, 2017
I have been buying Kratom for half a year now and have used different venders and this vender is by far the best. The quality of their kratom is superb. The shipping is fast and professional. Thanks Kratora for your awesomeness! I’d come give yall a hug and a kiss but I’m in ND and CA is too far of a drive 😛
Justin H. (verified owner) – September 15, 2017
I’ve purchased various strains of kratom from shops in my area and I’ve looked at online shops that sell it and the prices on here are ~$0.50 cheaper than everyone else I’ve seen and the product is definitely the highest quality I’ve encountered so far in my exploration of this wonderful plant. As far as I can tell, it is completely clean, fresh, and wholesome. I’m about to order some more right now and wanted to make sure and recommend this product.
Nathan (verified owner) – July 13, 2017
The Thai Red Vein that I received was super good and it was shipped promptly. I would definately recommend this product for a friend!
Jayden (verified owner) – June 27, 2017
Product came fast and am very satisfied with it and the free samples:)
Dre (verified owner) – June 21, 2017
When I was first searching for Kratom, the number of companies online was overwhelming. Which are legit and which will take the money and run? (Or send you garbage). After much debate and reading reviews, I took a chance on Kratora and have stayed with them since. I mention this first for any new people who aren’t sure which company to trust. Kratora is absolutely exquisite in every way! The quality of their products is top notch and the level of customer service is exceptional! They are friendly and personally respond to inquiries in a timely manner. And since they usually ship the same day (or next day if you order later in the day), your order arrives quickly! As for the strains, I have tried several but always find myself coming back to the Thai Red as a personal favorite. I am never disappointed with Kratora Thai Red and highly recommend this strain. Whatever your reasons for Kratom, know that Kratora is a truly outstanding and trustworthy company, and whichever strain you choose, you will receive a high quality product (generally within 3-4 days).
Nathaniel (verified owner) – June 14, 2017
A friend of mine recently suggested that I buy kratom. I really didn’t know what to expect, but I had heard some good things, so I thought, why not? Well, I have to say I am extremely impressed! The product itself is awesome, and the speed of shipping (across the US in 2 days!) is unparalleled. This whole experience has been greatly rewarding. Kudos to you, Kratora!
frank (verified owner) – June 13, 2017

Holly (verified owner) – June 13, 2017

Luis (verified owner) – June 13, 2017
This Red Vein did not disappoint. I highly recommend this strain and Kratora, of course!
Rachael (verified owner) – May 30, 2017
Received my first order with some extra samples. Thank you so much! Really enjoying this Red Thai that I ordered.
gili (verified owner) – May 16, 2017
I received some of this in a sample and loved it so I ordered 4 oz of it today and can’t wait for it to get here! Awesome customer service. Kinda bummed with the shipping though I paid almost 20$ thinking it would be here next day but it’s saying it’s going to be here the same time as when I pay the 5$ shipping. But on kratora end I’m giving them 5 stars!
Edwin (verified owner) – May 15, 2017
This arrived so much quicker than expected and all i want to say is, YES YES YES YES YES! If you have not tried this yet you are missing out! I am in love with this website and will buy every month! I am really enjoying this product. Thank you!!!!!
Lisa (verified owner) – February 18, 2017
I’ve bought kratom from many different online sources, shops and even from different countries. Lets just say I know a thing or two about kratom. The kratom from this site came in number 2 of the best I’ve ever bought in the world. This is the real deal.
marty (verified owner) – December 19, 2016

Steve (verified owner) – November 25, 2016
This was my first experience with kratom and it was a good one, it’s what i expected. looking to try other strains
Mark (verified owner) – July 16, 2016
This is my 3rd order and I’m once again super impressed with the shipping and product, really top notch all around, I live in Philly and it gets here literally 48 hrs after I order. This is my first time with red vein, and I definitely notice the more relaxing aspect as opposed to stimulating with a green vein, very nice indeed. As the parent of 3 little kids this is a godsend on busy days, which is most days. Kudos to both you and Kratom for being great.
Joseph (verified owner) – February 26, 2016
I really love this site, and I will continue to try and shop around. However, I have noticed lately the strains are starting to seem different. I don’t know if something new is being done with the strains or what, but I don’t like it. The last strain I bought was okay, but it felt a little too intrusive. Unlike previous ones which felt more soothingly calibrated. The “relaxing” strains haven’t been feeling very… well… relaxing. I wanted to give a 2 star, but because I have had good experiences in the past Ill do a 3.
kbly (verified owner) – February 14, 2016
The Thai Red works GREAT!!! I can Hardly wait to try the MAENG DA…..GREAT Customer Service!!! SPEEDY Secure Shipping!!! Custy for Life!!! 100% Better than my previous vendor!! Love customer loyalty program….it’s basically a 10% refund!!

tanner (verified owner) – December 17, 2015

Made from mature leaves that are finely ground, you can smell the jungles of Thailand upon opening. Red vein gets its name from the noticeable red “veins” on the backside of the Kratom leaf. The effects appear to be more relaxing and less stimulating than their green vein cousins, but are rumored to be longer lasting.

Kratom (mitragyna speciosa) is native to Southeast Asia, including Thailand, where a number of different kratom strains grow in the wild. Kratom has deep ties to Thai culture, as the kratom tree grows everywhere in the island nation and it has been used by local cultures for thousands of years.
Notably, though, kratom has been considered illegal to possess or grow in Thailand since August 3, 1943. On this date, the Thai government enacted what is known as the Kratom Act 2486, which outlawed the cultivation and possession of this plant, which had long been used by native cultures as a natural medicine.
It’s said that Thailand’s Kratom Act 2486 was passed in response to the booming opium trade. The Thai government stood to earn a significant profit, as they enacted laws that imposed duties and taxes on opium growers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers. It’s said that banning kratom in Thailand was one measure that was intended to help protect these interests.
In the 1930s and 1940s, Thailand was seeing a time of tremendous political unrest, under the rule of Luang Phibunsongkhram, who approved authoritarian laws that provided the Thai government with tremendous control, including virtually unlimited arrest powers and full press censorship capabilities.
Thailand’s field workers would spend as much as 18 hours a day, hard at work in the fields and it was kratom that they utilized to help them get through the day. They chewed kratom leaves to help alleviate the pain from the hard labor, while also providing a sense of peace and calm as they worked day after day. In this era, a seven-day work week was typical for Thai field workers.
In fact, kratom came to be known in Thailand as the “poor man’s marijuana,” which was another natural substance that was commonly utilized, although it was far more expensive. It has even been said that when a man proposed marriage to a woman, the woman’s family would hold the man in higher regard if he was a “kratom chewer” (instead of a marijuana smoker,”) as this implied that the woman’s future husband was a hard worker – a trait that was highly regarded in this culture.
In time, kratom became the go-to plant for the Thai working class. It was effective, non-addictive, widely available and often free since the kratom tree grows wild. Many started using kratom to ease their opium addictions – a fact that disturbed government officials, who were earning a significant profit from not just the opium trade, but also the local opium addicts.
The situation went downhill when the East Asian War broke out in 1942. This left the Thai government even more desperate for funds, so they eliminated opium’s ‘competitor” -kratom – by outlawing the plant. This is evidenced by what few records remain from this time. In a January 1942 Thai House of Representatives meeting, one member said that “Taxes for opium are high while kratom is not currently being taxed. With the increase of those taxes, people are starting to use kratom instead and this has had a visible impact on our government’s income.” Notably, despite kratom’s “criminalization” by the Thai government, it was rarely enforced and the public continued to use kratom thanks to the millions of trees that grow wild across the nation. A 1979 law called The Narcotics Act placed kratom in the Schedule 5 category, alongside cannabis. Schedule 5 is the least restrictive category which provides many with hope that it may someday be de-criminalized.
At the time of the ban, kratom had been in use for more than 3,000 years (or perhaps even longer.) Native Thailand cultures have long used kratom – also called “ketum,” “krathom” or “thom,” as it is known in Southern Thailand. Kratom grows in all areas of Thailand, so the cultural ties are quite significant, but kratom’s cultural significance tends to be the strongest in the southern regions.
Workers such as farmers, fishermen and in more modern times, rubber tree tappers, would use kratom to help ease the pain and provide an energy boost, while traditional Thai medicine has long used kratom to treat pain and injuries, diarrhea, anxiety, sleeplessness, fever and even as a poultice for wounds.
More recently, there have been movements to de-criminalize kratom in Thailand. Thai Justice Minister Chaikasem Nitisiri (who, notably, is from the southern region of Thailand, where kratom plays a major social role) has made a move to remove kratom from the nation’s narcotics list. Many politicians have been successful in providing evidence that kratom is no more addictive than coffee and causes no social harm. Modern Thai politicians have also pointed to the fact that kratom’s 1943 ban was rooted in politics and economics, rather than in true public health dangers. Even Thailand’s Narcotics Control Board admitted that kratom does not hold any serious risk of abuse and implies that legalization would cause no social harm.
