As of June 2019, there is an estimated number of 15,600,244 kratom buyers in the U.S.
Amongst those who buy kratom online, a common topic of conversation is “what is the best strain?” Two of the most frequently named strains are Green Maeng-Da and Red Bali. Let’s take a look at the characteristics that make Red Bali so popular.
What’s in a Name?
What are the different kratom strains? What are their different properties?
There is a lot of misunderstanding when it comes to kratom strains. Vendors claim that their strains come from different aged kratom leaves, origins, and process methods. Some of these claims are true, sometimes only partly true.
The primary differences between color strains are the way in which the leaves are processed, as this affects their alkaloid content. Red, Green, White, and Gold strains of kratom are processed differently. Generally, the different colors share traits within that color group.
Strain names often refer to the original region of cultivation of that strain. Thai kratom was originally cultivated in Thailand. The name doesn’t always indicate the growing location, because farmers are able to grow strains outside of their original location.
Now, sellers can use the same label for kratom from different regions which share similar alkaloid profiles. So, two bags of Red Bali powder from two different vendors may come from different regions, even if they have similar characteristics.
Is Red Bali the Same From Every Vendor?
While many kratom buyers find Red Bali to be their favorite, this strain, like any other, varies from vendor to vendor.
Across vendors, red vein kratom will share similar properties. That said, how the vendors process their specific blends is inconsistent. For example, some online kratom stores or headshop kratom stores offer lower quality kratom than websites that offer both retail and wholesale kratom.
Not all strains are created equal.
Many vendors who sell Red Bali dry their leaves in the sun. Our kratom is never dried in the sun. Drying the leaves indoors ensures the best alkaloid content.
What Is Red Bali Kratom?
Red Bali Kratom is a strain from the Red vein category of kratom. The Bali type of kratom originally gets its name from the Mitragyna speciosa plants growing in the Bali province of Indonesia. Today, workers also cultivate it in the fertile regions of Indonesia and Malaysia.
While people have used kratom in traditional medicine for centuries, many of today’s strains are the result of years spent improving the processes to maximize different alkaloids. Out of all the strains, Red Bali is one of the “classics” – it’s popular with many veteran kratom buyers and new customers alike.
Red Bali Kratom Characteristics
Like other red strains, consumers consider Red Bali one of the more relaxed varieties of kratom. Red Bali stands out amongst other reds because it has particularly quick properties. This can promote more energizing tranquility.
Red Bali is particularly high in alkaloids which make it effective at promoting a good mood. In fact, a 2018 study found it to have 24 different alkaloid compounds, compared to the 11 compounds found in the other strains. In comparison, coffee, a related plant, only contains two alkaloids in its beans.
The different alkaloids in the strain groups are what give the strains different characteristics. The kinds of alkaloids and their percentages can make each strain vary from one another and from different vendors. While Red Bali and White Thai contain some of the most diverse range of alkaloids, Green Malay contains the highest percentages of alkaloids.
Is Red Bali Good for Beginners?
For people who are new to trying kratom, Red Bali is one of the best strains to start with, especially as a starter red strain. As one of the most classic strains of kratom, its properties are usually consistent and predictable.
There are many new blended strains that have their own unique alkaloids and characteristics, but it’s harder to know what to expect if you’re not used to trying different strains. Starting with a few more classic strains can help you better understand which strains are best for you.
While powdered kratoms are more affordable and come in more varieties, some people have a hard time getting used to buying it like this. Many beginners find buying kratom capsules to be more convenient. Kratom capsules are more portable, and they can give you the power of kratom on the go.
It can be difficult to find high-quality capsules, but we offer Red Bali capsules that are the same quality as our powder. You can also create your own capsules with the kratom powder you buy.
Quality Is More Important Than the Strain
Finding the best strain for you is important, but the strains won’t mean anything if you’re not buying quality kratom. Kratom from some sellers contains filler (such as kratom stems) which reduces the effects and results in a cheaper product. Buying low-quality kratom means that you’re overpaying, and you’ll have to buy more of it for the full properties.
At EZ Kratom, we take meticulous care to provide kratom at the highest quality possible. Poor-quality kratom suppliers dry their leaves on the ground.
We dry our leaves indoors under sanitary conditions. Our processing method uses machines that are constantly maintained and cleaned.
To cut costs, some vendors will buy rejected leaves and stems and mix them with better leaves. We buy our kratom directly from family-owned and operated farms in Indonesia, where they pick each leaf with precision. We finely grind it to produce the best absorption of alkaloids.
