Hi Friends!

If you've arrived from Google (and not from our Newsletter) you may be surprised at what we say about Red Thai Kratom.

Red Vein Thai (Invincible Hippo) is comparable to an old strain we used to carry from a different farm, Dynamite Hippo (Light Red Vein Thai)

Both have very similar kratom effects. At best - Unstoppable Juggernaut-like Focus and Energy, with a touch of traditional Red vein or 'Happy' undertones.

At worst - An energetic Leaf that makes your day a bit more Happy and productive.

The Red Vein Thai Kratom Powder is FAST (with unique Slow-like Potential, allowing one to be Creatively Energized).

For some reason, outside of Happy Hippo, Red vein Kratom Powder (even Red Thai Kratom) is often considered *SLOW* (best for relaxation and peaceful thoughts).

It's not.

Legitimate Red Vein Thai Kratom is FAST.
(we haven't found a Thai Leaf that is not FAST)

And after a month of in-house testing on our Red Thai Kratom it will be easy to understand why we say —

Ruby Red Thai Kratom Powder - Invincible Hippo
(With some Slow Effects...)

  • Fast Thai Kratom Strains are best used for Energy, Motivation and Productivity.
  • Fast 'Red Vein Thai' Kratom Strains are also best used for Energy, Motivation and Productivity.

It's not that complicated!

If you have been brainwashed by other companies that offer Kratom Powder Online...

Forget about their marketing.

While there is certainly 'cross-over' between Kratom Strain Effects, certain varieties (e.g. Thai) are distinctly Fast and certain varieties (e.g. Horned) are distinctly Slow.

Learn What Kratom Effects to Expect

Our Happy Hippo staff considers Invincible Hippo to be the 'Slowest of the Fast' Leafs.

Let's talk about how the Happy Hippo Team came to this conclusion!

Ruby Red Vein Kratom Powder (Invincible Hippo) is a clue to its ability to provide Slow-Effects as a Fast Thai Kratom Strain!

Red Thai Kratom Powder Effects?

(Light Red Vein VS. Dark Ruby Red Vein Thai)

Lightness vs. Darkness...

Which is better for You?

While both Hippo Employees and customers enjoyed Dynamite Hippo while it lasted - we can all agree Invincible Hippo shines the brightest here!

Since we're just talking about the depth of Color between two varying sources of Red Thai Kratom Powder — They are seemingly the same types of kratom - with very mild differences

  • Dynamite Hippo (Light Red Thai) — Fast Leaf, Super Strong Emphasis on the promotion of: Energy, Productivity, Pro-Social
  • Invincible Hippo (Dark Ruby Thai) — Fast Leaf, Emphasis on the promotion of: Energy, Productivity, Pro-Social
    (Plus a possibility of Subtle Slow Leaf Effects: Happy Feelings, Discomfort-Relief, Peace of Mind)

Do you prefer Slow and Moderate Speed Kratom Strains?

Step out of your comfort zone and try the 'Slowest-Fast Leaf' among available Fast Hippo Leafs, - Red Vein Thai Kratom Powder (Invincible Hippo).

Red Vein Thai Kratom Powder will have the lowest risk of 'over-stimulating' you and causing jitterbugs, with no chance of sedative effects.

Jitterbugs: The uneasy, fuzzy or bouncy state-of-mind that Fast Strains (or low quality Thai Strains) can cause by taking *too much*.

Order or Red Vein Thai Kratom (Invincible Hippo) Because It Will Work

(Even if You Haven't Done Well With Fast Strains)

Red vein Thai is the "Slower-Fast Leaf".

It's closer to White Borneo (Ghost Hippo) than White Malay (Thunder Hippo).

Although this might come as a surprise -

Fast Strains are considerably more popular than Slow Strains.

People just love Fast Strains.

Yet, there's a sizable group of customers (20-25%) that just don't benefit from Fast Kratom Effects -

  1. Fast Kratom just doesn't do much for them
  2. Fast Kratom gives them the Jitterbugs (overstimulated - yuck!)

While both characteristics don't work, Jitterbugs are almost always a product of an inferior, immature, low-quality Kratom Strain (you won't find those at Happy Hippo), both unfortunately can be a reality for a minority of customers who just don't do as well with Fast Strains.

At the same time, it's a shame if you never experience the noticeable clean energy and pure optimism of a good Fast Leaf.

Unscientifically speaking - Red Vein Thai Kratom Powder (Invincible Hippo) is like: 80% Fast Alkaloids meets 20% Slow Alkaloids.

It's not a traditional Fast Thai Leaf. It's Fast. Just not that Fast.

There is a subtle calmness among the more noticeable Energy.

Even if you haven't loved Fast Strains of Kratom in the past - reserve judgement for Red Vein Thai (Invincible Hippo).

It's different.

And it should be better for those who steer away from traditional Fast Leaf.

Although we largely discourage Newbies from "mixing" Strains (spend your first month trying each kratom strain individually), many veteran Kratom users have tremendous success with a Fast Red Vein:Slow Red Vein combinations.

Erin will most likely LOVE Red Vein Thai (Invincible Hippo) - it should offer a similar experience to the "Red Hot:Fire" Combo she created on her own:

Buy Kratom That Covers Both of these Bases ("A" and "B")

Happy Hippo now offers x2 Red Thai Kratom Powders.

In case you are wondering, Yes.

It's entirely possible to offer 2 of the same types of kratom (Red Thai Strains) and both be considerably unique from one another.

There are a couple of key factors that you'll want to be the exact same between each Strain.

Purchase Kratom Powder If Both "A" and "B" Are Covered:

  1. Person-Tested (In-house: Potent + Consistent)
  2. Lab-Tested (In-lab: Sterilized + Tested for Pathogens)

We do not release a Kratom Strain unless we test it in-house (only strains that have universal approval from our staff ever make it to market) and lab-test it (every batch is sterilized at 170 degrees and tested for Salmonella).

Kratom Strains have to pass our personal "taste tests" (reviews) at Hippo Headquarters and we're not easy to impress!
(Performing the Lab-Testing is the EASY PART!)

After several years and 100's of 'taste-testing' samples from Farmers across the Globe (Southeast Asia) -

We are lucky to offer the largest, refined selection of High-Quality Kratom for sale.

Green Vein Thai (Atomic Hippo), also meets the "A" and "B" conditions)

Ruby Red Vein Thai Kratom Powder Benefits?

Creative Energy.


Too Much Energy can turn off your ability to be Creative.

This is one drawback to traditional Fast Leafs such as traditional Thai or Maeng Da Kratom.

Invincible Hippo offers a less powerful boost to "Energy" —

This allows room for a special, subtly increased Sense of Well-Being.

Invincible Hippo offers a 'Happy Balance' between Energy and Sense of Well-Being.
(But is still mostly a Fast Kratom Strain)

Closing Thoughts

Online Kratom Vendors say Red Vein Kratom Strains offer the same Effects:

  • Sense of Well-Being
  • Discomfort Relief
  • Helpful for Sleep
  • Relaxation

While Ruby Red Vein Thai has the potential to subtly offer these benefits, Invincible Hippo is far from being a traditional Slow Red Kratom Strain such as:

At the same time, Red Vein Thai (Invincible Hippo) is different from a traditional Fast Red Kratom Strain such as:

To make the most educated Kratom Strain choices - forget the marketing.

Go by experience.

The Happy Hippo staff has over 20 years of combined experience and we use our own Kratom every single day.

We know what they do for us.

We know what they will do for you.

Extensive in-house Hippo 'Taste-testing' yields the Highest Quality Kratom Products.

We try to represent each Kratom Leaf from REAL, thought-out, intimate personal experiences.

Red Vein Thai Kratom (Invincible Hippo) could best be described as 80% Fast meets 20% Slow.

Stimulation is still the most defined aspect of the Red Thai Kratom Experience.

But this Fast Red Vein Kratom Powder exhibits Slow Red alkaloid-potential, allowing room for something special.

80% FAST, 20% SLOW! — Red Vein Thai (Invincible Hippo) 'Combo-Like' Predominantly Fast Leaf, w/ a touch of Creativity!

Hi everyone. I’m new to HH, but based on what I’ve seen seen far, I’m very impressed! I just placed my first order today, consisting of Invincible Red, Mellow Yellow, Happy Heart, Magic, & Royal Golden, & am look forward to being able to post my 2 cent worth. I’ve been burning kratom for about a year & have been buying from smoke shops, and some other higher priced online vendors who shall remain nameless ;), so I’m really looking forward to my delivery, and chatting with y’all as well! 8)

Upon opening my first bag of [b]Invincible[/b] the aroma of Fresh berries, especially blueberries emanated from the bag even though it was a couple feet from my nose. Intrigued the Ob’ster stuck his schnoz into the bag and inhaled deeply. Heaven!! This strain has the most incredible, fresh, fruity aroma of any that I have tried. Aromatherapy at it’s finest.

Could the effects of this strain live up to the magical aroma? Could the Hippos hit it out of the park yet again with a new strain? The answer is yes!!! This strain over delivers. Blended in grapefruit juice – Obi’s preferred method- the taste is absolutely wonderful. Like a mixed berry smoothie. Delicious!! Puddles’ review is very accurate regarding this strain. It offers nice balanced energy and focus with very good discomfort relief and mood lift. Did I mention very good discomfort relief for a fast strain? If you tried the Dynamite and liked it but found it slightly too energetic, then this is the strain for you. If you’ve not resonated with fast strains before then I recommend you give Invincible a try.


Where do the Hippos find this stuff?? The Ob’ster gives this strain 4 Hoofs Up

Yes I’m definitely getting a slow mixed with fast effects from the invincible Hippo. It’s especially good for discomfort relief . This is usual with slow strains, but Its great with this strain. The best thing is no trembling. Ive pretty much accept that some strains will make me shake like a blender but I deal with it because the other effects are so good so I take the good with the bad, but this one hasn’t make me shake at all.
