Red Horn Kratom has a unique morphology that makes it unlike any other strain on the market. These curled leaves have increased levels of alkaloids and therefore higher potency than other red-veined kratom strains. Because of the extended growing times and expertise needed to get this strain, it is considered rare and can be hard to find. Despite this, Kratom Source USA can provide this strain for our customers to enjoy.
Red Horn Kratom- Strain Overview
Red Horn Kratom is made using red-veined kratom leaves that are picked from the most mature kratom trees and have been allowed to age for longer periods. As the kratom leaves age, the vein down the middle of the leaves shifts from white to green and finally red. If the leaves are left to grow for longer or are picked from fully mature kratom trees, then the tips of the leaves can begin to curl upwards.
This unique shape provides them with a “horned” appearance and provides the strain with its name. The horned shape leads to increased alkaloids within the leaves and provides extra potency. There are over 20 active alkaloids within the kratom leaves, with mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine having the highest alkaloid concentration. The alkaloid content and amounts are what determine the potency of the leaves.
When the leaves have reached their peak maturity, they are harvested by hand and taken indoors to be placed on drying racks. These indoor racks prevent further changes to the leaves that direct sunlight or temperature shifts would cause. This locks in the potency of the leaves and lets them finish maturing in a controlled setting. Once the leaves are fully dry, they are placed into airtight containers and sent to our facilities for grinding into fine powders. We have found that a combination of old-world techniques and modern technology provides the best results for powders.
Red Horn Kratom doesn’t have a specific harvest location like many strains of kratom. These leaves are instead harvested across Southeast Asia. The trees need a tropical climate where they receive lots of rain and direct sunlight without being exposed to colder temperatures to thrive. The trees can be found growing in the wild, but because Red Horn Kratom requires the most mature leaves and expertise to cultivate, most kratom trees are found on plantations.
What is Red Horn Kratom?
Most strains of kratom are named based on the vein of kratom used and the location where it is grown. Red Horn Kratom receives its name from the red-veined kratom leaves used along with the unique shape of the leaves. The leaves, coming from only the most mature leaves, have been left to grow for longer periods, and the tips of the leaves begin to curl upwards. This strain, since it has been allowed to grow for longer, has increased alkaloid contents which makes it very popular.

Buying Red Horn Kratom Powder
Red Horn Kratom is a highly specialized strain that only the most skilled farmers can create. Kratom Source USA works directly with the farmers who have this expertise and can craft the specialty strain to keep this in stock along with a wide variety of other kratom strains. We provide our kratom in a variety of sizes to let you choose the right amount of your favorite strains.
We offer our Red Horn Kratom Powder in 250-gram, 500-gram, and kg sizes.
Red Horn Kratom uses leaves with distinct morphology that gives it a unique profile. Other strains share some of the characteristics or are also favorites that you may want to try as well.
Red Elephant Kratom
Elephant Kratom also uses kratom leaves that have a uniquely larger size. This leads to increased alkaloid counts that many kratom users enjoy. These leaves are harvested across Southeast Asia from the most mature trees which produce the larger leaves. This strain also offers leaves that naturally have higher alkaloid counts and that the kratom community love.
If you enjoy Red Horn Kratom, you may also want to try the other varieties of Horn Kratom. Horn Kratom is available in all three natural vein colors. The White Horn and popular Green Horn Kratom offer lower levels of potency than the Red Horn but have higher than average contents of the alkaloids that make kratom products so popular.
