Best Kratom Strains For Anxiety

When you’re struggling with anxiety, sometimes it feels as if your mind is working against you.

However, odds are you’re not alone. In fact, The Anxiety And Depression Association of America (ADAA) has stated that 40 million adults in the United States alone have been diagnosed with anxiety disorders.

Many anxiety sufferers turn to therapy or prescription drugs to combat their symptoms. Others utilize alternative strategies such as consistent exercise, yoga, or self-medicate using substances like kratom.

Kratom – the crushed, powdered leaves of the Mitrgyna Speciosa tree – may not be a cure-all for anxiety. However, because of its sedating and euphoric nature, kratom has been found by many users to be effective at temporarily reducing anxiety.

With so many kratom strains available though, it can be difficult to narrow down your options. Kratom strains are primarily classified by color, and from there, your options only expand further. With a dizzying amount of strain options to choose from, picking just one or even two can be a daunting affair.

Thankfully, here at Kratomaton, we’ve accumulated user reviews and reports that give us clearer insights into the often mysterious world of kratom. We’ve reviewed over fifty kratom strains, all based on hundreds of individual user experiences and opinions – and the results are in!

Due to the subjective nature of kratom, it’s tough to determine what the definitively best kratom strains for anxiety are.

That said, Based on our evidence, here are six kratom strains that may have notable anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) properties – in no particular order!

Red Thai

Many users have expressed a particular fondness for Red Thai – and for good reasons. With a primarily euphoric and sedating profile, Red Thai kratom seems to succeed at steering one’s mind away from troubling thoughts and promoting inner calmness instead.

In addition, Red Thai has also been reported to be a longer-lasting strain, meaning that it may provide anxiety relief for longer than other strains.

Typically, red kratom strains tend to be both long-lasting and highly sedating, but Red Thai seems to defy this stereotype.

As users have reported, Red Thai may provide long-lasting anxiety relief with less of the “crash” of other red strains – something to consider for daytime users.

Yellow Vietnam

For anxiety relief with more of a “kick,” some users swear by the moderately stimulating, well-rounded Yellow Vietnam strain. Ostensibly less sedating than Red Thai, Yellow Vietnam users have reported a notable increase in mood as well as a mild boost in energy and focus.

If you’re looking for a well-rounded strain for anxiety relief that doesn’t send you to bed early – Yellow Vietnam just might fit the bill.

Green Malay

Aside from sedation, euphoria is the property of kratom that is most effective at alleviating anxiety. And as user reports suggest, Green Malay is quite euphoric – scoring a 9.5 out of 10.

Green Malay also has the advantage of generally being more energetic than sedating – meaning, like Yellow Vietnam, it’s less likely to lower your energy levels.

The strain’s effects may only last 3.5-4 hours at a moderate dose, but Green Malay’s euphoric properties make it a solid contender for soothing worry and doubt.

Potentially powerfully mood-boosting as well as competently energetic, Green Malay is likely unmatched in terms of potency when compared to other strains of its kind. Read full review

Yellow Sunda

For some users, energizing kratom strains like Green Malay and Yellow Vietnam may actually worsen their anxiety – much like a large double-shot espresso coffee might. However, this isn’t always the case, and this outcome depends on the user as well as the dosage size.

But, if stimulating strains aren’t your thing, the often rare but favored Yellow Sunda kratom may provide ample stress-relief with more sedation than stimulation.

It may prove difficult to track down – but some users swear by it.

Green Bali

Easily the most well-rounded strain on this list, Green Bali is perhaps best described as a jack-of-all-trades strain. However, as the saying often goes, a balanced effects profile may also make it a master-of-none.

The strain is generally thought to be equal parts sedating and stimulating. Of course, individual user experience may vary.

Still, users have lauded Green Bali’s ability to dampen their stress and worries. As a bonus, the strain may also provide mild pain relief.

A versatile, balanced, and ultimately subjective strain, Green Bali’s possibly eccentric but broad palette may make it noteworthy for some, and forgettable for others.Read full review

White Cambodian

Sure, sedating kratom strains might be ideal at the end of a long day. But what if you want the best of both worlds – temporary anxiety relief without motivation-draining fatigue?

As a white strain, White Cambodian may provide the most stimulation when compared to any other strain in this article. And as users have reported, the strain’s considerable euphoric qualities may still keep anxiety at bay.

Due to its generally energetic nature, some users have taken a particular liking to White Cambodian in the context of combating social anxiety. So, if you’re not usually much of a socialite, White Cambo might be able to help.
