Kratom? Adderall? The difference is ultimately in their end result. While kratom in low doses has stimulant effects giving increased energy, alertness, and sociability, Adderall, on other hand, is used for treatment of narcolepsy, to help one stay awake during daytime as well as treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Red Vein Kratom And Adderall
Being one of the most sought-after varieties of kratom, red vein kratom is a different breed, and for best reasons.

In massive quantities, kratom helps alleviate pain, but at expense of nausea, with little (2-3 hours) or no effect whatsoever towards treatment of ADHD or narcolepsy.
