  • Balanced: may energize, relax, and uplift mood
  • Potentially long duration of effects
  • Could have a fast onset


  • Might offer less pain relief than other red strains
  • Mild nature could be underwhelming for some


Red Jambu should not be overlooked by users seeking a seemingly mild and well-rounded kratom strain.

Generally, users describe Red Jambu kratom as moderately euphoric and somewhat sedating. When consumed in low-to-moderate doses (1-5g), it may elevate one’s mood. Red Jambu appears to be relaxing for some users and energizing for others. The strain’s seemingly paradoxical properties may be explained by its supposed origin as a combination of white and red kratom leaves.

Unfortunately, Red Jambu’s limited pain relief potential will likely disappoint some users. However, the strain does seem to have an above-average duration, with effects lasting up to 4-5 hours at moderate doses (2.5-5g).

We don’t have any reports suggesting that Red Jambu is more or less nauseating than other kratom strains.

Due to the subjective nature of kratom and personal variations in body and brain chemistry, your experiences with this strain might differ from the average user.


Red Jambu supposedly originates from or is named after the Jambu region of Malaysia.

    1. The jambu is possibly the best kratom I’ve tried so far. It is incredible. I’ve been burning 8gs and only burned 6gs of the red jambu and it seems stronger than anything I’ve tried.

    Hey guys just wanted to let you know I tried the new Jambu today and it definitely seems pretty potent. Kind of reminds me of a red Malay in the sense that it’s relaxing yet not really sedating. I would say it has even more energy than the red Hulu but still not an energetic strain and definitely not overly sedating.

    6 grams of red Jambu to start they day (I usually only take reds on the weekend). Well I usually take 8-10 grams to test any, this red was powerful and im glad I only took 6. I had ok euphoria, but my mood was elevated more than usual. My first dose had an intense duration of 7 hours. That’s Crazy. 6 grams lasting that long was a nice suprise. I could have zoned out on that red but I had things to do and I found it energizing. Overall it was a great strain. Jambu definitely has some unique effects, most likely from being grown in a certain location?I honestly don’t know. I wish he had this as regular strain and more of it. I’d like 3 or 5 kg put back for stock and a kg for the weekly rotation. I’d give it 9.5/10 #Red Jambu Malay would have recieved a 10 but it was a little pricier than my taste. Why he no have this for always?

    That Jambu is quite different. I had a similar experience as you. Great mood lift and general sense of well being. I was reading that kratom has shown to have nearly a 70% difference in certain alkaloids based on where it was harvested. I suspect this is one of those (different make up of alkaloids)

    that jambu almost feels like a white mixed with a red, but with a very interesting moodlift

    6. IggyNinja
    I was waiting for someone to mention the red jambu from Malaysia. I think that stuff is downright awesome, but i thought it was way more sedating than stimulating. It is a really interesting strain and i wish i would’ve order more. Good news is i think they have a few more strains from there that are coming in.

    This is one of the best strains I’ve ever had, 8.5/10 in every way, it’s just strong, 4-6g and 20min later and any pain I’m in or anxiety is gone. Hard to review bcuz it’s very unique. Great mood lift and long legs.

    8. Kratomthrowaway3
    No actually it came on fast, I was taking the baby for a walk while my wife went to the grocery store 😉 This is definetely good stuff! Its different and hard to explain but I feel relaxed and mellow but still sharp and awake. I took less than my normal dose and feel great so it must be potent. I just took a little more to get a better idea of what this strain has to offer but so far I’m impressed. I never tried any of SoCals premium strains so I can’t speak for how it compares to those but I feel like it’s worth the higher price.

    Probably the strongest strain I’ve ever tried, aside from Bali like 4 years ago and on par with Plantation Maeng Da from MMM. Not much energy, but crazy mood lift and best pain relief I’ve ever had. It’s gonna be hard rationing it, only picked up 2 oz. Almost wish I would’ve picked up like 10 oz despite the price! Really hoping they get it again, this one’s an award winner! And if anyone hasn’t used socal, they’re some great people and always a pleasure to do business with! Strong leaf and lots of variety 🙂

    Red Jambu. They almost never have it. It is rare and when he gets it it sells out almost instantly. And no one agrees upon anything as far as kratom effects. As you said it is subjective. To me it is very sedating, and last a long time. It is well worth the upcharge when he gets it.
