The overview of Bali Kratom
Kratom is one of the fastest rising alternative medicines on the market today. If you are looking to jump onto the kratom train, however, you need to know that this herb comes in different strains.
Different strains of kratom tend to have different effects. As such, you first need to figure out the effects that you are trying to get from kratom so you can know the strain that is most appropriate for you.
Bali Kratom is among the most popular strains of kratom. But, is Bali Kratom the ideal strain for you? Here is what you need to know about Bali Kratom.
What is Bali Kratom?
Primarily grown in the Southeast Asia regions of Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia, Bali Kratom happens to be one of the most potent, widely available, and affordable strains of kratom on the market.
However, Bali Kratom is also one of the slowest acting strains. This means it might take a while before its effects set in. However, once they do, you will be in for a treat.
Types of Bali Kratom
Just like all other kratom strains, Bali Kratom also comes in three sub-types, which differ according to the color of the vein on their leaves. These sub-types include Red, Green, and White Bali. Let us look at them in more detail:
Red Bali Kratom
Red Bali Kratom has a red vein traversing through its leaves. Red Bali also happens to yield most of the effects that are synonymous with Bali Kratom. These include analgesic (painkilling), relaxation, and anxiety relief properties.
Nonetheless, most red strains possess these properties. What makes Red Bali Kratom special, however, is that its effects are more potent. As such, if you have been using kratom for a while and are looking for a more intense kick, consider trying out Red Bali. However, people new to kratom should give this strain a wide berth due to its intensity.
Green Bali Kratom
The green strain of Bali Kratom has similar effects to Red Bali; however, it is not as potent. Therefore, it is great for casual use since its sedation properties will not leave you incapable of going on with your day.
People looking for effective pain relief with little to no sedation should find Green Bali to be a great choice.
White Bali Kratom
While this Bali strain has the least ‘Bali-Esque’ properties, it still extremely popular among Bali Kratom enthusiasts. White Bali has minimal pain-relieving and sedation properties. However, it has immense energy-boosting effects. Additionally, it also improves your mental clarity, focus, and awareness.
As such, if you have been looking for an alternative to caffeine, consider trying out White Bali Kratom. Unfortunately, White Bali can be hard to find.
What are the Benefits of Bali Kratom?
High-quality Bali Kratom should allow you the following benefits:
Relief from Chronic Pain
Millions of people around the world are suffering from diseases or conditions that cause them chronic pain. Chronic pain is a major impediment to the quality of life, which is why victims of chronic pain will try just about anything if it promises to offer them some relief.
Unfortunately, this usually means using pharmaceutical-grade medications, which come with a host of side effects, including addiction.
Bali Kratom, especially Red Bali, is one of the most powerful natural painkillers. It offers relief from pain for hours before its effects wear off. It is, therefore, an invaluable aid in the management of both acute and chronic pains.
Estimates from the WHO (World Health Organization) indicate that about 300 million people in the world suffer from depression. Depression is a serious condition since it regularly results in suicide. Even though various medications are used in the treatment of depression, they also come with unwanted side effects.
Bali Kratom can help you manage depression without harming you in other ways. Thanks to Bali Kratom’s sedative properties, it promotes relaxation in both the mind and body, which results in stress and anxiety relief. This allows you to be more comfortable as well as productive.
Most people who use Bali Kratom for this purpose take it in the form of tea, as it is soothing and does not feel like taking medicine. When making kratom tea, however, do not allow the water to boil, as extreme temperatures destroy alkaloids, which are the chemical compounds responsible for kratom’s effects.
Enhancing Mental Performance
Bali Kratom also acts as somewhat of a nootropic. This is because some of its effects include a boost in cognitive performance, especially when using White Bali. One of the mechanisms it uses to boost your mental performance is by increasing the rate of blood flow to the brain. By doing so, it ensures that your brain stays nourished.
As a result, your brain will perform at a high level for longer periods, thereby increasing your productivity.
Treating Opiate Addiction
Opiate addiction is one of the most prevalent drug problems in the US today. People who are addicted to opiates find it incredibly difficult to quit these drugs due to the severe withdrawal symptoms that typically follow.
Bali Kratom is quite helpful in treating opiate addiction. This is because its alkaloids mimic the effects of opiates on your brain’s opioid receptors. This also explains why Bali Kratom is also such an effective pain reliever since pain relief also results from the action of drugs on your opioid receptors.
As such, an addict can trick their body into thinking that they have used the drug by using Bali Kratom, as it yields almost similar effects. This makes opiate withdrawal symptoms a lot easier to handle.
However, this treatment should only be done under the guidance of a professional to avoid developing a dependency on Bali Kratom.
What are the Side Effects of Bali Kratom?
As with any other substance that affects your brain or body, Bali Kratom also comes with a host of potential side effects. These side effects, however, tend to manifest themselves when an individual misuses Bali Kratom.
- Loss of appetite
- Erratic heartbeat
- Dry mouth
You should not experience any of these side effects if you stick to your ideal dose of Bali Kratom.
What is the Appropriate Dosage for Bali Kratom?
Right off the bat, you should know that there is no standard dosage for Bali Kratom. This is because numerous factors determine the ideal dose for any given individual. These include:
- The effects that you are after
- The strain that you are using i.e., Red, White, or Green, as they have different potencies
- Your experience level with kratom
- Your body type
If you are after sedative/pain relief/relaxation properties, you may need to take a higher dose. If you are after stimulation effects, on the other hand, you may need to take a lower dose.
However, since what constitutes a low dose might be high from someone else, the trick is, to begin with, a low dose, regardless of the effects that you are after. Experts recommend beginning with a dose of 2 grams.
Take those 2 grams and wait for about 25 minutes. Monitor what you feel during that period. If you do not feel anything, take another gram. Note down any effects that you experience. Always wait between 25 and 30 minutes before increasing the dose. This gives the herb time to kick in while ensuring that you do not overdose.
Once you get the effects that you are after, note down the dose that you took to get those effects. Use that as your baseline.
Anything more than 8 grams, however, is considered to be an overdose. Therefore, be careful.
How to Take Bali Kratom
You can take Bali Kratom in a variety of ways, which include:
- Toss n’ Wash
This involves taking your dose of kratom powder, placing it in your mouth, and then washing it down with a glass of water—swill before you swallow to ensure that you do not leave any powder inside your mouth.
Toss n’ Wash is the simplest and quickest way of using kratom.
- Kratom Tea
Add your dose of Bali Kratom to a cup of water and heat it. Make sure that you do not heat it to boiling temperatures. Sip it like any other type of herbal tea.
- Add to Food or Beverage
Kratom powder has a bitter taste. To avoid that taste, some people prefer adding it to their food or drink. However, do not mix kratom with alcohol, as it can result in disastrous effects.
- Bali Kratom Capsules
Capsules allow for convenience. Additionally, you can avoid overdosing by using capsules since they come in exact measures, which allows you to measure your dose accurately.
Bali Kratom is one of the most popular kratom strains due to its immensely beneficial effects. However, to get these benefits, you must use high-quality Bali Kratom. Unfortunately, the market is flooded with low-grade stuff. To get high-quality Bali Kratom, ensure that you only purchase your kratom from a legitimate vendor. Therefore, make sure to look for online reviews on a vendor before buying from them.
