Red Sunda seems like a well-rounded red strain that’s ideal for relaxation, pain relief, or evening use.

Red Sunda kratom icon

Red Sunda is supposedly named after the Sundanese people on the Indonesian Isle of Java. It appears to be much more sedating than Yellow Sunda or White Sunda.

Generally, users describe Red Sunda as highly sedating and mildly euphoric. It may promote relaxation and elevate one’s mood. Red Sunda also seems to be moderately pain-relieving, although it might be less effective than other red strains for this purpose. Given Red Sunda’s seemingly relaxing and soothing nature, the strain could be ideal for evening use.

As a red strain, Red Sunda doesn’t appear to be very stimulating. Some users have reported that Red Sunda can be more nauseating at higher amounts. As a result, we recommend exercising caution when assessing your dosage.

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.

    Hello everyone. I got my order of Socal premium red sunda in today and it’s one of the best reds i’ve tried so far. It’s not overly sedating for a red but it’s very euphoric with GREAT pain relief, completely wiped out my back pain. Even though it costs more for being a premium strain it’s definitely worth the price imo. Another thing that impressed me was the shipping time with it being the holidays. I ordered Thursday and received my package today in NY, can’t get much better than that. Thank you Socal for always providing an excellent product and Merry Christmas everyone!

    I think it’s quite potent and great for relaxation and sleep. What’s with all the nay sayers? It’s a cleaner experience and doesn’t wobble so easily like tons of either leaf from pretty much every single vendor used on here

    It made me sick in any dose which wasn’t enjoyable. Most strains I don’t have a problem with. I take it and get the effects I desire without getting sick, but with Red Sunda I got sick very quickly even though I was taking 1/3rd less of my usual dose. Either I would not get any effects, or I’d get wobbly and dizzy and nauseous.
    Very good to mix with though.

    Burn Brightness: Very bright and happy! [euphoric]
    Pain Management: One of my top fives when mixed with premium white sunda, though it certainly does the job on its own. Main reason for mixing is to give me an upper spectrum burn. I rarely want something to leave me super relaxed to the point of being lazy or sleepy but that’s a ME thing. I don’t drink for the same reason.
    Duration: longish, 4+ hours
    Relaxation: Very relaxed, hence the reason I usually mix it with premium white Sunda.
    My dose is low, about 1.5 to 2g depending on tolerance.

    I’ve been using Kratom for a little more then 6 months and I’ve sampled from a wide variety of vendors. I mostly use red strains to help with my insomnia and to relax after being on my feet all day. Got a chance to sample the Sunda last night and HOT DAMN. This stuff is prime, premium is not an exaggeration. The sedation was on point and made my lower back pain disappear. Dosed a gram less than I usually do just to get a feel for it, which ended up being perfect! 10/10 would recommend to any fan of red strains.

    Been my go to good night strain for quite a while now. Love it. Never gets me feeling wobbly or nauseous. Such a great relaxing burn. Been taking it every night for at least six months and don’t ever get the urge to change it up.

    I have recently purchased premium red sunda from socal and was so pleased with it I ordered an additional 8oz. It’s the perfect strain for relaxing and chilling for the night. Very sedating and gives off a feeling of well being. Definitely my go to night time strain for a while now. Helped me close off Thanksgiving blissfully.
    Edit: Been using kratom for close to a year now to deal with depression, addiction, and anxiety

    Holy hell did I underestimate this strain.
    I ordered 4oz along with another, cheaper red earlier this month. I’ve been sticking to the other just because it came not-so-perfectly-sealed (and made a bit of a mess in the usps envelope, not terribly so though). I decided to crack open the sunda today on a whim. I remember reading on Reddit that it’s a strong red, so I decided to start off with a lower amount than my usual.
    I mix it into a little OJ and water. It’s noticeably more bitter than normal, but not disgustingly so.
    Soon came on all the usual signs. Yep, definitely a classic red.
    I go outside for a little nicotine and enjoy the nice weather. At first this seems like a great choice, but after a view ecig drags I begin to feel “off”. Time to head in, I suppose.
    It kept getting stronger though. Some mild nausea set in, which is very rare for me at the amount I decided to start with. Soon I began to be a little shaky.
    And then, intense sedation. Hard to keep my eyes open intense. I think I might fall asleep sitting upright in a chair intense.
    “I need to lie down” I decide
    I make myself comfortable on my sofa’s chaise. Quickly, the nausea and shakiness subside and leave me in a very smooth, gentle comfort that I’m still enjoying now.
    This is great stuff. I will definitely be using less next time, however.

    After getting done work at 2 i came home and on any empty stomach took five grams. 45 minutes later the effects of your average red started to appear. After a hour and a half in, i started to realise it was getting extremely difficult to keep my eyes open while scrolling on my phone. I eventually said fuck it, closed my and sank away into a warm, fuzzy, tingly cloud (FIRST TIME EVERY GETTING THIS!!!) also got the best 4 hours of sleep i have ever had. I highly recommend this stuff if you are looking for a very strong, pain killing nighttime strain!

    Pain: 10/10 // Sedation 8/10 // Moodlift 5/10 // Energy: 0

    But what really made me want to write this review was the premium red Sunda! I mean this stuff is fantastic . I took about 5 gs roughly 4 hours after trying the full spectrum, and let me tell you… I feel great! Strong euphoric effects, great uplifting qualities. I mean this stuff is good. Even after dosing earlier in the day, this is quality kratom. Solid solid 9+/10
