Let’s get one thing straight: this writer is sick of kratom scams. Over the last year, Kratom Spot has covered a plethora of these kratom-related rip-offs.
- Train Wreck Kratom: an unhealthy and mysterious blend of various kratom strains.
- Gold Bali Kratom: a strain of kratom rooted in marketing tactics, not health and wellness.
- Kratom Vape Products: bad for your lungs, bad for your kratom regimen.
- Red Horn Kratom: marketed as an expensive wonder-strain, but no different in effect.
- Yellow Kratom: another marketing tactic to siphon money out of kratom users.
- Snortable Kratom: blow through your kratom stash while receiving no benefits at all.
So now to the topic of discussion: what is red dragon kratom powder? This (yet again) mysterious strain of kratom leaves us with many more questions than answers. It supposedly hails from Thailand. It’s supposedly cheaper than red Thai kratom or Red Maeng Da, Thailand’s infamously powerful strain. Apparently, you can even find white dragon kratom and green dragon kratom varieties. It’s almost as if a new subspecies of Mitragyna speciosa was suddenly discovered.
However, a simple Google search won’t yield any promising results. You might find some interesting pay-to-publish content like this Orlando Weekly product overview. But if you’re like me, you’re at your wit’s end with this type of material. Articles like this aren’t only selling us on the idea of red dragon kratom, but that it’s a good thing.
Still, it’s our duty as members of the kratom industry to educate you on these potential kratom scams. We believe in the efficacy of kratom. We believe in high-quality, lab-tested, and responsibly-sourced kratom strains, not shams. So let’s uncover red dragon kratom powder, as well as discuss trustworthy strains that make a difference for so many lives.
What is Red Dragon Kratom? Here’s What We Could Find
So what is red dragon kratom powder? It’s whatever salesmen want it to be. But if you were to ask Kratom Spot, what is red dragon kratom? We’d call it a scam. We couldn’t find one reliable source that differentiated “red dragon kratom” from traditional red vein kratom strains.
This strain of kratom is baffling, to say the least. For starters, unsavory marketers will advertise red dragon kratom exactly like traditional kratom strains. Worse yet, they’ll publish overtly vague information, so you don’t quite question what it is. Ready for some examples?
- “Red dragon kratom is a versatile kratom strain. It is good for all kinds of people because it has many effects on the human body.” – Programming Insider
- “People who engage in high levels of mental activities for longer periods of time, such as computer programmers, system engineers, and other such professions could find many benefits here.” – Orlando Weekly
- “In addition to looking alike, the Red Dragon strain also duplicates certain qualities and effects of the Thai red vein variety.” – KratomMasters
But the rabbit hole just keeps growing. For instance, some manufacturers call red dragon kratom powder similar to traditional red vein Thai kratom powder. On other sites, however, red dragon kratom is said to be red vein Thai, just under a different name. Fishy? We think so.
And if you thought this mysterious strain of kratom couldn’t get any weirder, there’s more. Some call it cheap, while some call it expensive. Some say it has a higher kratom alkaloid content, while some say it has a milder concentration.
So What About White Dragon Kratom & Green Dragon Kratom?
In our understanding, both white dragon kratom and green dragon kratom are a continuance of the sham narrative. It’s likely that white vein Thai kratom is marketed as “white dragon kratom” to pique interest. In the same way, we believe that “green dragon kratom” is simply green vein Thai or similar kratom strains.
Why Would Kratom Sellers Market a Scam?
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it (many, many times) again: kratom is a new industry. The FDA has opposed comprehensive kratom regulations at every turn. As such, there are no regulatory bodies – other than independent organizations like the American Kratom Association – to govern the kratom market.
Kratom Spot is GMP-certified by the American Kratom Association. However, this is by no means a requirement to sell kratom online or in stores. For those simply wishing to make money off this “new” industry, kratom scams are an easy way to fill pockets.
So What Kratom Strains Can You Trust?
We recommend avoiding any strain of kratom that isn’t sold by a GMP-certified retailer. In addition, go with your gut. If you notice vague, long-winded, or otherwise sketchy advertisements related to kratom, you should avoid that strain altogether. We’ve even published a guide to what we can and can’t say about kratom, according to the FDA. If a marketer breaks one of these rules, they cannot be trusted within the kratom space.
Here is a comprehensive list of proven, trusted, traditional, and otherwise Kratom Spot-approved kratom strains.
- Red Vein Kratom
- White Vein Kratom
- Green Vein Kratom
Do not trust a strain of kratom that mentions a strain color other than the “Big 3” mentioned here. You can also put your faith in a variety of regional kratom strains.
- Maeng Da Kratom
- Thai Kratom
- Bali Kratom
- Indo Kratom
- Sumatra Kratom
- Malay Kratom
