Learn how to get the most benefit from Bali kratom strains through a look into the strains powerful effects, reviews, ideal dosages, and varieties.
There’s a reason Bali kratom remains the standard — it is one of the most potent and reasonably priced kratom varieties on the market.
…But there’s a catch
What you need to keep in mind is that most strains advertised as Bali kratom aren’t even from Bali.
This isn’t new. In fact, this kratom is historically from southern or western Borneo and is only labeled Bali kratom due to the region’s use as a shipping hub.
Don’t think that this means that this type of kratom is a hoax — it still represents a particular subset of Indo kratom with some very distinctive effects.
The most notable effects of Bali Kratom are: strong pain relief, strong anxiety and stress relief, a sense of well-being, and sedation. These sedative and stress-relieving effects of Bali make it the most effective kratom for sleep.
Bali Kratom Effects
It is these distinctive uses that set it apart it from many other strains of kratom and make it such a valuable strain.
The hallmark of all this type of kratom — its pain killing ability.
If you’re dealing with pain, a red or green Bali kratom is one of the best and most cost-effective choices.
This potent pain-killing ability combined with a low cost make this kratom incredibly popular among chronic pain sufferers.
But like other pain-relieving kratom, both these strain types can cause sedation, so new users should always start with a low dosage until you know exactly how this kratom will effect you. Only after that should you increase your dosage to more than 4 grams.
By monitoring your dosage carefully, you can make steps to avoid some of the tolerance that regular use of kratom can cause.
The other predominant effect of this kratom — relaxation and anti-anxiety effects — make it one of most commonly purchased and reviewed strains.
Many users report a dramatic reduction of anxiety from this strain — even those without anxiety have reported great results for simple relaxation.
The best strains for relaxation and anxiety are:
Like pain killing, relaxation from kratom is very often accompanied by sedation. This is the case with the majority of Bali strains! For those who want to experience some of the anti-anxiety and stress relieving effects of this strain without as much sedation, white vein is the best option.
Despite many reporting some significant effects of this kratom type on appetite, it seems to effect everyone very differently.
With most people report it enhances their appetite, but some experience the very opposite. Because of this, personal experience is often necessary in order to see how kratom will affect you.
Although the marketing gimmick labels “Gold Bali Kratom” and “Premium Bali Kratom” may have some benefit, vein color is a much better predictor of the effects of a strain.
Below we’ll review the most common vein-types, and hopefully give you a good idea which will be best for you.
Red vein bali has been a staple strain of many a kratom user’s cabinet for years.
Its effects include: analgesia, relaxation and anxiety relief, similar to other red veined strains, such as Borneo varieties, as you can see below.
Red Bali Effects
This set of effects compounds well with the kratom strain’s natural characteristics, making it a very powerful variety for many users.
This vein color and type of kratom is predictably potent throughout seasons and grow conditions in comparison to both green and white vein varieties.
For any first timer who wants to get a feel for this variety of strain, red bali is a great choice.
The effects of green is very similar to red bali kratom’s effects, but is often slightly less sedating.
Green Bali Effects
While the potency of this variety may on average be very slightly lower than its red variety, it typically lasts a bit longer, making it another great choice for those who need lasting relief.
Some of the best kratom strains we have encountered were green vein Bali.
Overall, green tends to get good reviews can be a great choice for those with pain or need anxiety relief, but don’t want the high level of sedation.
While this kratom variety is often underestimated, it can be an amazing choice if grown correctly.
White Bali Effects
A great white vein combines some of the pain relief and relaxation potential with a level of clear-headed energy not seen in other varieties
Like other white veins, it can be hard to find a high quality white vein Bali, but when you do you won’t regret the effort spent.
Since kratom’s 2017-2018 popularity explosion, there are more vendors than ever offering White, Green and Red kratom.
Honestly… looking through search results for a good Bali vendor can be pretty daunting.
Below, we’ll condense our 7 years of experience in the industry to give you a quick rundown on the best bali kratom vendors by vein type and effects.
Of the many consumer-level vendors we’ve worked with, none have been able to supply potent Bali strains more reliably than Coastline.
Of all varieties, CK’s Red Vein Bali is one of the few reds on the market that we keep on-hand.
Like with much other RVB kratom, this is what we call a fantastic “end-of-the-day” strain…
Even though it probably won’t put you right to sleep, it definitely will put you in a relaxed state of mind.
We’ve been using this strain for aches, muscle pain and general tenseness over the past few years, and for us, this is it really shines.
Saying that their White Vein Bali is an extremely clean and energetic strain would be totally missing the point.
We can’t get enough of this kratom strain — it’s an enigma to us.
Unlike reds and some greens, this strain is somehow both extremely subtle AND potent.
This strain gives a clearheaded energy, focus and stress relief which are almost imperceptible until you look back on the day and realize that for some reason you’ve been in a great mood.
That’s why we’ve taken to calling this the “naturally happy” kratom strain.
If you’re looking for a strain that will provide a powerful and clearheaded boost as well as pain relief without any tiredness or “fogginess”, this WVB is a fantastic choice.
As far as unique green vein kratom strains go, HH is top-notch.
If you’re looking for a Green Bali, Happy hippo is a fantastic choice. Their Top-Shelf Bali is one of our favorites, and is certainly worth the cost.
This kratom is one of the most long-lasting and energetic greens we’ve tried.
Besides the quality pain relief, for whatever reason, this strain makes tedious work a lot more bearable.
I’ve been using it occasionally over the past few years for this purpose and have never been disappointed.
We worked with HH for years, and have a lot of faith in their products. They also have a variety of other great, and unique strains.
I can’t emphasize this enough: In order to get the most out of this kratom, it is absolutely essential to get the dose right.
Although there are some general dosage guidelines for this kratom strain, it depends heavily on a wide range of factors: the individual, the particular batch/tree, empty or full stomach, and stomach contents.
Because of this, it is a good idea to start at the lower end of the scale. A general dosage guideline is:
While this kratom dosage guideline is not comprehensive, staying in the moderate dosage range makes side effects much less likely to occur.
Here’s the deal:
One drawback when it comes to this kratom type, is that it can be much more dose-sensitive than many other strains.
What does this mean?
Simply put, exceeding a certain dose, can yield some… side effects.
The most common of these kratom side effects is known as “The Wobbles” which is characterized by a difficulty refocusing the eyes, which can lead to a pretty uncomfortable feeling of motion sickness for some.
Because of this, it is essential to make sure your dose is within a reasonable range for you. Each person has a different kratom tolerance and body chemistry, so always start low and know your limits.
