The red Bali kratom strain is yet another popular strain. Like the red vein Thai strain, it is a very relaxing and sedating type of kratom. Red Bali is great for those looking for a relaxing strain with analgesic and sedative properties.
If you are looking for a huge “kick” red Bali kratom is not for you. Fans of the popular red vein strains will sincerely enjoy Bali and for this reason it has become one of the most popular and well-recognized strains.
Where Does Red Bali Originate?
Red Bali is found mostly in parts of Indonesia and surrounding regions. It gets its name because it was originally discovered on the Island of “Bali” in Indonesia. It has since been grown and cultivated in other parts of Indonesia as well as surrounding countries.
Even though red Bali is now grown in many areas outside of the Bali island, it still retains its unique properties and effects. Across the world, Bali has grown in popularity and will continue to be one of the most popular and best-selling strains worldwide.
Red Bali Benefits
Red bali kratom has many positive effects. The specific strain has a very large number of kratom alkaloids and this is the reason behind its very large spectrum of benefits. It is thought to contain over two dozen active alkaloids that range from plant to plant and the quality of the specific batch.
Red Bali is known for its benefits as an analgesic and pain reliever. The reason this strain of kratom has better pain relieving properties than other strains is unknown but is likely due to its diversity in alkaloids. What is known is that red Bali may be a great natural alternative to over-the-counter and prescription pain drugs. To experience the analgesic effects of red Bali, one only needs small dosage of as little as 2 grams however these analgesic effects may increase much more in the higher dosage ranges of 7-10 grams.
Sedative & Relaxant
Another great and sought after property of red bali kratom is the sedative effects. This is not a quality all kratom users want however for those looking for a sedative strain, this is a great one. It is not the most sedating type of kratom however it definitely falls into the relaxant category
Anxiolytic & Stress Reducer
Red Bali is a great strain and may help to reduce anxiety and stress. These effects go hand-in-hand with the sedative and relaxing properties. Many people who take this strain claims that it helps to melt away stress and anxiety and is not overly powerful or overbearing. If you are experiencing stress and anxiety and want a subtle way to relax, red Bali kratom may be a great strain for you.
Red bali kratom may also help as a sleep aid. Its’ analgesic, sedative and anxiolytic activities may all contribute to a quicker sleep time by reducing physical pain, or by helping to reduce “mind-wandering” or excessive thinking caused by stress. It is known to be a very subtle strain that can gently help with sleep induction without knocking you out like other more powerful sedative strains. It may be a great natural alternative to addictive and dangerous prescription sleep drugs like Ambien or Lunesta.
Red Bali Side Effects
Even though red Bali is not the most powerful type of kratom, it still can have many side effects. It is less likely to cause nausea and dizziness than other powerful types however one must still heed certain warnings. Nausea and dizziness are perhaps the most common type of side effects experienced in many users. These effects usually happen at higher dosages (>7g) but can happen at much lower dosages, especially in those who are sensitive and do not have tolerance to kratom.
There are certain instances to avoid red Bali kratom altogether. Pregnant or breastfeeding woman should never use any type of kratom including red bali. If you are using other opiates or prescribed pain pills like codeine or morphine, you should not use kratom as this can include dangerous side effects due to the interactions between kratom and opiates. People should also avoid alcohol or any substance/drug that may interact with opiate-like substances.
Red Bali kratom can cause tolerance and addiction when used consecutively. Using for more than three days in a row will cause tolerance which may require more kratom to be taken to feel the effects. It is strongly ill-advised to take red Bali kratom for more than three days in a row. You should also avoid raising the dosage and this will cause tolerance and even addiction if the pattern is continued for an extended length of time. Withdrawal side-effects from red Bali kratom can include: anxiety, insomnia, sweating, dizziness and other nasty psychosomatic symptoms.
