In today’s market, many people prefer alternative treatments rather than conventional ones. As much as this affected customer base is growing by the minute, so is the popularity of certain herbs and extracts with medical benefits. Red Bali Kratom is one of those herbs people have used for so long.

In this article, i will provide you with all the information, you need to know about the Red Bali Kratom strain, including its side effects, recommended serving sizes, and tips for purchasing it.

These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. The information in our articles are represented solely as the opinions of the respective authors, who do not claim to be medical professionals. We are not medical experts, just kratom enthusiasts.

What Is Red Bali Kratom?

Red Bali Kratom is a strain of the Mitragyna speciosa plant, indigenous in Thailand, Indonesia, and other parts of Southeast Asia. It is known to have a high concentration of alkaloids, specifically mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynin.

Red Bali Kratom is a strain of kratom that is named after the color of the veins on the underside of the leaves. The veins of red Bali kratom leaves are red, and the leaves are typically processed using traditional drying methods. However, there are also other strains of kratom available that have different colored veins and may be processed using different methods. These strains include green kratom (i.e., which has green veins), white kratom (i.e., which has white veins), and yellow/gold kratom (i.e., which is produced using a special drying process that gives the leaves a yellow or gold color).

As the name implies, the Red Bali strain is typically reddish but can sometimes be a bit more on the greenish side if the plant is not fully mature.

 This strain is ideal for more experienced users.

Where Does Red Bali Kratom Grow?

Red Bali Kratom grows naturally in the tropical forests of Southeast Asia, specifically Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia. The ideal climate and humidity make these regions the perfect place for Red Bali Kratom to grow naturally.

Does Red Bali Kratom Have Any Side Effects?

It is important to note that the effects of kratom can vary significantly from person to person, and the severity of side effects may depend on a variety of factors, including the individual's age, weight, overall health, and the serving size. Some people may be more sensitive to the effects of kratom and may experience more pronounced side effects with even small serving sizes. On the other hand, other people may be able to tolerate larger serving sizes without experiencing significant side effects.

Among the Red Bali kratom effects are the following:

  • Bowel issues
  • Dizziness
  • Thyroid issues
  • Urinary issues
  • Reduced appetite
  • Headaches
  • Hazy vision
  • Pain in the abdomen
  • Nausea

In general, if you are using Red Bali Kratom or any other strain of kratom, it is important to be aware of how the drug may affect your ability to safely perform tasks that require concentration, such as driving or operating heavy machinery. Engaging such activities should be avoided, as they may lead to serious injury.

Is Red Bali Addictive?

Red Bali kratom is part of the same family as coffee, and just like coffee, it can become addictive if you abuse it.

Therefore, I highly advise against using any strain in a recreational manner or as a means of suppressing unwanted emotions.

Withdrawal Symptoms include:

  • Insatiable cravings
  • Increasing serving sizes
  • Increasingly frequent use
  • Weight Loss
  • Irritation (when it is no longer being used).

If you have a history of addiction or are concerned about the potential for addiction, it is important to discuss these concerns with a healthcare professional before using kratom.

What Does Red Bali Taste Like?

Kratom in general has an earthy taste. However, unlike green and white strains which tend to be much more bitter, Red Bali Kratom has a mild bitterness to it, making it more tolerable to use. Expect an earthy, matcha-like flavor with an herb like undertone. 

How to Use Red Bali Kratom?

Red Bali can be taken as a tea, capsules, a powder, a pill, or a mixture of flavored beverages, making it a great solution to reducing excruciating discomfort and inducing bliss.

Allow me to explain each one in more detail. 

Red Bali Capsules

Capsules are a great way to bypass Red Bali’s bitter taste.

Our capsules hold 0.7 grams of powder, and each capsule is made with vegan material to protect those with allergic reactions.

However, different vendors may offer varying sizes.

Since capsules require more material and labor, you can expect a higher price than powder. 

Toss N’ Wash

Toss n’ wash is a method of consuming kratom that involves placing a desired serving size of powder in the mouth and swallowing it with a drink such as water, juice, or a sports drink.

Simply take a spoonful of powder, take a sip of water (cold water works best to mitigate the harsh flavor), swirl it around your mouth, and gulp it down!

There you have it. This is the cheapest way to use kratom. It also produces very potent results. 

Red Bali Kratom Tea

To make Red Bali Kratom tea, you must simmer the powder in boiling water. Don’t boil the powder with water, as that will destroy the alkaloids.

After 5-10 minutes, filter out the powder, add some honey, and enjoy.

Tea is known for producing potent results which match the toss n’ wash method. However, they tend to last shorter.

How Long Does Red Bali Take to Kick in?

The time it takes to feel Red Bali Kratom’s initial effects will depend on how you choose to use Red Bali, such as capsules, toss n’ wash, or tea.

Take a look at the table below to understand how long it takes for Red Bali to kick in.

Red Bali Serving Sizes

The appropriate serving size of Red Bali Kratom can vary depending on the individual and their tolerance to the product.

Beginners should start with a small serving of 2 grams and progressively increase the serving size by 1 gram each day until the desired effect is obtained.

Smaller people, such as those who weigh less than 150 pounds, should start with an even lower dose of 1 gram.

You can increase the quantity by 1 gram to obtain sedative effects, as larger sizes tend to be more sedative.

It would help to keep a journal or anything similar where you can record how Red Bali Kratom serving sizes affect your body and mind.

What to Look For When Buying Red Bali?

If you’re in the market for some Red Bali, I highly advise you read the following buying tips below to protect not only your wallet, but more importantly, your health. 


Regardless of the vendor you purchase from, ensure that you get an organic non-GMO, pesticide-free, herbicide-free Red Bali.

While short term exposure to these substances may not be detrimental to your health, the long term side effects can be. 

Lab Tests

Lab tests verify the concentration of alkaloids in a product.

The benefit is twofold, as it allows customers to compare the potency between various vendors while also protecting them from false or outlandish vendor claims. 

Customer Guarantee

You’ll want to buy from a vendor who ultimately stands behind their products, which means they offer a customer guarantee.

A good guarantee is a sign of confidence in the product. If the vendor does not offer a guarantee, you may want to think twice before buying.

What is The Shelf Life Red Bali Kratom?

Red Bali has a shelf life of approximately one year if stored properly. However, some people have extended the shelf life by freezing it.

If you plan on storing kratom for months, freezing it in an airtight container is a great idea. 

Best Rotating Strain For Red Bali

In my opinion, Red Borneo is the best rotating strain to pair with Red Bali, as both are extremely similar. The main difference lies in Red Bali’s effect  is slightly stronger than Red Borneo.

Therefore, if you think you may be experiencing a stagnant strain, a phenomenon where you become tolerant to one specific strain, use Red Borneo to switch between the two.

You can switch from one strain to the other over the course of one week or even monthly, depending on how tolerant you’ve become to Red Bali.

Note, you don’t have to rotate between two strains which share the same color. Any two strains are fine. I only suggested Red Borneo because it’s remarkably similar to Red Bali. 

Is Red Bali Legal?

Yes, Red Bali is legal in the United States, but only under federal law, which means states and local governments have the right to take further action.

Unfortunately, due to the huge lack of understanding regarding kratom, government officials claim kratom to be a threat to their residents.

Therefore, the following six states have banned the use, possession, and distribution of any type of kratom, including Red Bali.

Can I Travel With Red Bali?

Whether or not you can travel with Red Bali kratom will depend on the specific laws of the place you are traveling to. In the United States, kratom is legal at the federal level, but it is regulated by some states and cities. It is always a good idea to check the specific laws of the place you are traveling to before bringing kratom with you.

If the country or state where you plan on traveling to has outlawed kratom, you will not be able to take Red Bali with you.

I flew to Mexico from Los Angeles in June 2022 with 50 grams of Green Maeng Da powder and had absolutely no problem. 

It is important to check the specific laws of the country you are visiting and to declare any controlled substances at customs. Failure to do so could result in legal consequences.

Is Red Bali Right For You?

Need help making up your mind? I got you covered.

First of all, if you’re new to kratom, start with a mild strain like Red Elephant, or use a green strain like Green Elephant as Red Bali is more likely to produce side effects due to its high potency.

It is always a good idea to start with a small serving size and gradually increase it as needed to find the optimal dose for your individual needs. It is also important to consult with a healthcare professional before using kratom, particularly if you have a medical condition or are taking any medications.
