Red Borneo is an amazing strain that can be used for a variety of positive effects. Using my own personal experience and research, I will show you exactly how you can restore your life with Red Borneo.
Red Borneo is a safe kratom strain used for reducing pain, anxiety, depression, stress, and improving sleep and libido. It’s widely known for producing potent effects that have helped many individuals free themselves from harmful pharmaceuticals.
However, keep in mind. that every Red Borneo effect will demand a different size dose. Additionally, there’s a few things you can do to potentiate all of the effects.
Individually Reviewing Red Borneo Effects
Red Borneo is a well rounded red strain known for being more on the potent side. It’s not the MOST potent, but definitely above average. Let’s go over each specific benefit and discuss dosage as well as potency so you can decide whether Red Borneo is right for you.
We’ll use a rating system of 1 through 5 to rate the potency of each effect, with 1 being the weakest and 5 being extremely potent.
Red Borneo for Pain Relief
Pain relief is the most popular reason why people choose Red Borneo. It’s high levels of the alkaloid 7-hydroximitragynine produce powerful analgesic effects without the overly sedating effects that many red strains are known for.

The great thing about Red Borneo is how effective it can be when used for a wide variety of medical conditions. The following are just a few medical conditions many people have successfully improved with Red Borneo:
- joint and muscle aches
Depending on your preferred method of consumption, it can take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes to feel the initial analgesic effects. However, the pain relief will last about 3 to 5 hours.
Due to it’s versatility to ease multiple medical conditions, non sedating effects, and potency, we’re going to rate Red Borneo a 5 for pain relief.
Red Borneo for Anxiety, Depression, and Stress
The reason why I group anxiety, depression, and stress is because they’re very closely related and all three of them will be positively affected by Red Borneo’s relaxation effect. As a person who has had to deal with horrible anxiety, I can personally tell you Red Borneo has mitigated my symptoms.
I’ve been able to control many of the symptoms with Red Borneo such as:
- tense body
- tight chest
- short breath
- panic attacks
The time it takes to feel the initial effects of anxiety, depression, and stress relief is the same amount it takes to feel the effects for pain relief, 15 to 45 minutes depending on the way you consume Red Borneo. However, the total time of relief is 3 to 5 hours.
We’re going to rank Red Borneo a 4 for anxiety, depression, and stress relief.
The only reason why we’re not giving Red Borneo a 5 is because people who suffer from these conditions can really benefit from a strain that is more euphoric and Red Borneo is only slightly euphoric.
Improve Your Sleep with Red Borneo
Red Borneo is an excellent sleeping aid. Here’s a fun fact you probably didn’t know, Red Borneo is a great way to combat sleep paralysis.
I’ve had sleep paralysis since I was a teenager, but ever since I began using certain red strains, including Red Borneo, I was able to almost completely eradicate sleep paralysis.
I later realized that sleep paralysis occurs because your mind becomes conscious but your body “remains asleep”. The reason why Red Borneo helps with sleep paralysis is because it allows you to remain in deep sleep and you’re therefore less likely to wake up.
I take Red Borneo every night until I get a slight nod. Just make sure not to fight it when that sleepy feeling comes.Reddit user Gogodolls1894 2017
If you’ve experienced any of the following conditions, you may want to consider using Red Borneo:
- Trouble falling asleep
- Trouble staying asleep
- Sleep paralysis
- Unrestful sleep
Unlike anxiety and pain relief, it will take you about 2 – 3 hours to feel the initial sedating effects that are similarly produced by NyQuil. You may be wondering, “isn’t that when I should be feeling the pain and anxiety relief as well?” You are very correct.
However, the trick to obtaining Red Borneo’s sedating effects lies in the size of the dose. If you want to experience its sedating effects, you have to consume a higher than (your personal) average dose.
On the contrary, if you want to avoid Red Borneo’s sedating effects and still feel pain and anxiety relief, you should consume your average dose or a lesser amount. Don’t worry though, we’ll go over how to find your perfect dose later in this post.
The strongest sedating effects should last a total of about 2-3 hours after the initial effects but will slowly fade as you sleep.
If you have no intention of sleeping, I would highly advice against consuming high doses of Red Borneo.
When it comes to improving sleep, Red Borneo is far from average. That’s why were going to rank Red Borneo a 5 for this category.
Increase Your Libido With Red Borneo
I want to be completely transparent with you. Red Borneo is no viagra. However, it can be used to increase your libido. This is primarily due to it’s relaxing effects.
You have to be very careful if you’re going to use Red Borneo, or any other kratom strain, to increase your libido because too much kratom can have the opposite effect for us guys. Yes, even that I have experienced lol.
You want to stay on the lower end of your ideal dose. Just enough to take the edge off and relax before getting down to business. Once you feel the relaxing effect, you’re good to go!
We’re going to give Red Borneo a 3 for libido purposes.
Finding Your Perfect Red Borneo Dose
You may have noticed other blogs providing the exact number of grams to achieve specific effects. Although those numbers may work for some people, they’re not completely accurate because dosages are very subjective.
Due to a wide range of factors, dose size varies greatly with each person.
The following factors can directly influence the effects of Red Borneo:
- Amount of food in your system
The best way to find your ideal dose is through experimentation. I will show you step-by -step how to safely do just that. Let’s get started.
Use the following table to find your recommended starting dose. I provide these small doses because they are safe and very unlikely to produce unwanted side effects.
|Weight in Pounds||100||125||150||175||≥200|
|Dose in Grams||1||1.5||2||2.5||3|
If you don’t have a weight scale, use the image below to gauge your dose. The image contains 2 grams of Red Borneo in a tablespoon.
Once you find your starting dose, we’re going to work our way up on a daily basis without consuming any kratom twice in the same day. Doing so will affect the potency of Red Borneo and thus make it very difficult to find your true dose.
Once you find your ideal dose you can use kratom twice a day if you’d like. However, doing so will cause you to rapidly develop a high tolerance so I suggest using kratom every other day or only when you need it.
Day 1: Take your recommended starting dose. It should take about 15 minutes for you to begin to feel the initial anxiety and pain relief and about 2-3 hours for the sedation effect.
If you didn’t feel anything (and you probably won’t because it’s such a low dose for your weight) move on to day 2.
Day 2: Add 1 gram to your starting dose and wait the recommended amount of time. If you achieved your desired effect this will be your ideal dose. If you didn’t experience the effects you should move on to day 3.
Day 3: Add 1 more gram (2 grams to your starting dose) and repeat the process. If you achieved your desired effect this will be your ideal dose.
If you still haven’t achieved the effect you want, continue repeating this process. If you felt the effects but they were very minimal, you can also continue this process.
However, if at any point you experience a slight nauseous headache, revert to the dose from the previous day. Headaches are a negative side effect produced by all kratom strains if you consume more than your body can handle.
Average Universal Doses
I understand some of you may not want to wait a few days to find your exact dose. With that being said, here are the average recommended doses for each effect. Just keep in mind, these doses may not work for everyone.
|Effect||Dose Size (grams)|
If you’re and avid kratom user, you may require more than what is recommended on the table shown above.
Bonus Tip: How to Potentiate Red Borneo Kratom Effects
Here’s a little extra bonus tip for those of you who already have a high tolerance or just want to get the most out of Red Borneo. Consume any of the following foods or drinks along with Red Borneo to enhance its effects:
- 100% Grape Fruit Juice (any color)
- Black Pepper
Choose one or two of the foods and drinks listed above to mix with Red Borneo. If you’re using Red Borneo for sleep, keep in mind that caffeine will cancel out the effects not enhance them.
Always use kratom responsibly.
