Best Kratom for Sleep

Last Updated: by Marie Seska

Suffer from Insomnia or just have trouble falling asleep and interested in Kratom for its relaxing and sedative effects? People have been using Kratom for centuries and popularity is on the rise again! We did the hard work and found the best strains so you can fall asleep faster!

Kratom, aka Mitragyna Speciosa, has been scientifically proved to help you fall asleep faster – but with so many strains and varieties available it can be hard to know which is actually the best – especially if you do not want to test each variety.

Most Popular Red Strains

There 3 main strains of Kratom (Red, Green and White) each with a wide range of strains and effects. The most popular strain for better sleep is Red Vein Kratom due to its sedating effects and ability to ward off bouts of insomnia.

Why do we recommend Red Vein? Red strains produce alkaloads that tell the rest of your body to start relaxing and preparing for bed. The release of Hydroxymitragynine even makes it feel like are you sleeping in a warm blanket!

The effects of Kratom before bed can be felt across the entire body. After drinking most people start to feel calm and a little warm inside! We recommend curling up in bed and getting comfortable because you probably won’t be awake for much longer!

Is Kratom safe for sleep?

Is Kratom safe to take before bed for sleep? Yes – but it is important not to develop a dependency. Kratom may be all natural (just like Melatonin) but some people become dependent and can’t fall asleep without it! Make sure to regulate your usage and take a few nights off every now and then!

Are there any side effects?

Kratom may be all natural but there are still some side effects. Always make sure to stay well hydrated and keep an eye out for these side effects:

  • Fatigue
  • Dehydration
  • Dry mouth
  • Constipation
