A Review of the Most Common Kratom Strain on the Market
If you go down an alley somewhere, where a bunch of smokers are hanging out and ask them if they’ve ever heard of the word “Bali”, they’ll probably roll their eyes into their head, think really hard, and swear they have heard that name somewhere before.
And they have.
Go to any decent smoke shop in your city, and you’ll usually find random herbs and incense lined along the register including small bags that say “Bali Kratom”.
This stuff is usually pretty useless (something I’ll get to) but it can also be purchased online from reputable vendors such as Happy Hippo Herbals with their potent “Top Shelf” Green Bali Kratom. You can buy red Bali Kratom at good prices too, both available as powder or Bali Kratom capsules.
So, What is Bali Kratom?
Bali Kratom is a “slow” strain of Kratom native to the Indonesian island of Bali in Southeast Asia. It’s been exported all over the world and is the most common strain available on the market. It’s dime a dozen and won’t be going extinct anytime soon. In fact, there was a time when Kratom stores only sold different types of Bali Kratom strains and the occasional Maeng Da strain.
Since it’s one of the cheapest and most popular Kratom strains, the quality of Bali available isn’t always the best so buying this strain from a trusted vendor becomes even more important.
Don’t believe me?
Go ahead and buy that suspicious looking black baggie covered with cliche ghetto logos and “Bali Kratom” written all over it from your local smoke shop. I guarantee you it’s almost always bunk. Either it won’t work or you’ll need a really huge dose to get even a subtle effect, or you’ll just end up with adverse side effects such as a headache and vomiting. Nice, huh?
Like other strains of Kratom, Bali is available in different colors or “veins”, based on when in the growth cycle the Kratom leaf is picked and variations in the drying process of the leaves. The most common Bali Kratom strains are green vein Bali, red vein Bali and gold vein Bali. They’re all worth trying but my favorite would have to be a good green Bali Kratom, like this one. I think once you’ve given it a try yourself, you’ll understand why I keep coming back to Green Vein Bali.
What is Green Bali Kratom?
Green Bali, also known as Green Bali Kratom or ‘Green Vein Bali’, is a high quality Kratom made from the leaves of the Kratom plant (or rather, tree). The Mitragyna Speciosa tree, cultivated throughout Southeast Asia (and the island of Bali), produces large leaves. Green Bali Kratom powder is made from the dried and processed leaves of this tree.
Green Vein Kratom
Green vein strains, of which Green Bali is one, are known for producing balanced effects that are often milder than other strains, offering the best of both red and white vein Kratom powder, with alkaloids that produce a wide range of beneficial effects. In other words, this strain isn’t overly stimulating, but still offers a boost of uplifting energy and a sense of well-being, with reduced stress, enhanced focus, better mood enhancement and more.
Green Bali Kratom Review
Quality Bali Kratom products, such as Top Shelf Hippo Bali, are awesome. Arguably one of the best Kratom products I’ve consumed, many users agree that the benefits of Hippo Bali are impressive.
Green Bali Kratom Effects
You will become invincible, strong as Hercules, fast as lightning, and will become a God on Mount Olympus.
What are the effects of Bali Kratom?
Higher Doses of Green Bali Kratom
Green Bali alkaloids interact with the body’s natural opioid receptors. At higher doses, these alkaloids work in a depressive manner, acting to relieve pain, induce relaxation, melt away stress, and cause sedation, among other benefits.
Lower Doses of Green Bali Kratom
At lower to moderate doses, Green Bali Kratom’s balanced nature shines bright. With a small dose, Green Bali is less potent but highly effective. In this range, it improves energy levels, increases motivation, acts as a mild stimulant, reduces stress, improves mood and focus, and more.
What to Realistically Expect from Taking Green Bali Kratom
Realistically, here are some of the actual effects you can expect after a successful burn of Bali:
1. Relaxation/Reduction in Anxiety
If you ask me how Bali Kratom feels, I’d have to say it’s a “background strain”. It’s very subtle compared to other Kratom strains and doesn’t come with a potent, strong overwhelming sedative feeling. Sure, very high doses can ultimately achieve that if that’s your goal, but this strain is not made for that.
Similar to green Malaysian Kratom, you will notice that anxiety will simply not be there when it should be. You will just feel “normal” and then later on after your aroma has worn off, you’ll say “Hey wait a minute, I didn’t feel anxious in the slightest bit today”.
There is also definitely the feeling of a subtle relaxing sensation. Subtle, but it’s there. It’s as subtle as trying to taste water. There is a certain taste to it but nothing too strong and you just can’t quite put your finger on it.
2. Pain Relief
One of the most frequently asked questions we get from users is whether Bali is effective for pain. Many people want something more from Kratom than simply improving their mood and that is genuine pain relief.
Green Vein Bali Kratom has considerable analgesic effects, making it a great alternative to using dangerous pharmaceutical pain killers for your chronic pain and instead you can use a very safe, natural plant filled with antioxidants. Of course I can’t and don’t claim it will diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease or serious medical condition, but it will undoubtedly offer effective pain relief throughout your body. Of course, check with your Doctor.
3. Appetite Suppression
This is actually a by-product of a lot of Kratom strains since they all tend to slightly suppress your appetite. One of the reasons Thailand farmers are said to have chewed on Kratom leaves is because it blunted their appetite and gave them a focused energy to work 12+ hours a day without complaining much.
Although green vein Bali Kratom won’t give you the surge of energy like “Fast” strains such as Maeng Da Kratom will, it will definitely suppress your appetite if you’re looking forward to having a relaxing day with your friends or even doing some laid back office work without having to eat like a pig every couple minutes.
It’s perfect for users who want to lose weight and have trouble overeating past their calorie limits for the day. Another huge point for Kratom, and maybe another compelling reason to jump on the Kratom train if you haven’t already.
Green Bali Kratom Dosage
There is no “Recommended Dose” For Green Bali Kratom Powder.
As with any Kratom strain, there is no right “cookie cutter” dose for everyone. It all comes down to experimentation and finding your “sweet spot” and this is no different when dosing Bali Kratom. See How to Dose Kratom.
That said, you should notice that anything from a 1-2.5 gram Bali dose will produce a very light effect, and 2-4 grams would be considered a pretty moderate dose. Anything up to 6 grams of a high quality Bali like Happy Hippo’s is considered a high dose and anything even higher will potentially start to produce side effects.
Since my tolerance has built up a little for both green and red Bali Kratom powder, this no longer holds true for me and it usually takes about 6 grams to hit my “sweet spot”. But for those inexperienced with this strain, that guideline should be close to accurate.
Now I know I have probably been beating this dead horse for too long, but I’ll say it again and again:
Where you buy your Kratom from really matters. If you have read any stories online or been on Kratom forums where the user is complaining that Kratom is not working or he/she had adverse side effects, they usually bought it from some shady unreliable vendor.
Green Bali Kratom Products
Green Bali Kratom Powder
Green Bali Kratom Powder (Bali Kratom Powder) is one of the most common ways to consume this milder strain. Loose powder can be used in tea, coffee, drinks, snacks, meals, deserts and more. Although naturally bitter in taste, Green Bali Kratom Powder is affordable, available in bulk, and gives you a lot of freedom in choosing how to consume it. If versatility and price is important, you can’t go wrong with Green Bali Powder.
Green Vein Bali Capsules
A bit higher priced, Green Vein Bali capsules are pre-measured, skip the mess of dealing with powder, and are discreet for ‘on the go use’. For those short on time, or who prefer convenience and simplicity, the added cost is often worth it.
Green Bali Kratom: In Summary…
That about sums up this overview of Green Bali Kratom; hopefully it’s given you a good idea of what to expect when using green vein Kratom.
It’s one of the most common strains found in the Kratom world, making it both readily available and pretty cheap to get your hands on. You’ll also find Bali Kratom in all the other strain colors from white, red and yellow, to even Gold Bali Kratom, but green is definitely the most common. Effects are best for relief from chronic pain, anxiety, and even appetite suppression if you want to get rid of those “handles”. Its also a smooth ride, with lower doses being more uplifting and energizing, while higher doses will aid with relaxation and calming. Just make sure you get it from a trusted source with third-party lab tests for purity, and you’ll enjoy the experience as much as I do.
I’d personally rate it a 4/5. It’s a great strain but I usually love strains that produce stronger effects like a good, potent green Maeng Da. At the end of the day, the best strain for you comes down to personal preference though.
