Kratom comes from the Mitragyna Speciosa tree, which is native to Southeast Asia. There are multiple types of Kratom and ways to classify them. They are known as Kratom strains. One of the ways a Kratom strain can be classified is the region that they came from. 

Bali Kratom strains are famous in the Kratom community. In fact, they’re one of the most popular Kratom strains of all time! Everyone loves a high-quality Bali leaf! 

We granted our Red Bali the name “Red Dragon Bali” - it’s our 2nd best-selling Slow strain. Our customers love it, and so does Puddles Hippo!

In this article, we are going to dive in and explore the Red Bali Kratom strain by covering all of the main aspects. We will go over what it is, the plethora of uses, its benefits, proper serving sizes, and how it compares in relation to other popular Kratom strains.

What is Red Bali Kratom?

Red Bali is a classic Kratom strain. It shines through as one of the most popular red veined Kratom strains available on the market. In fact, we’ve even heard it be called the “red wine of Kratom”.

Bali Kratom has an intriguing debate regarding the authentic origin. We’ve heard rumors that Bali strains are made by blending together Sumatra and Borneo strains. But all we truly know is that this variety grows on Bali plantations and ships out of Bali ports. We cannot be sure that is where the strain actually originated. Regardless of this uncertainty, Bali Kratom is a well-rounded strain and a favorite of many. 

What Makes Bali Kratom Strains Uniquely Popular?

As we briefly mentioned at the beginning of this article, Bali Kratom strains are extraordinarily popular and well-known across the globe. 

You’re probably wondering why. So, let’s talk about it! 

For starters, Bali Kratom is abundant and easily accessible to vendors in America. It grows at a much faster rate compared to other Kratom trees. The leaves are also slightly larger, making for a bountiful harvest. The more the merrier! 

Secondly, the alkaloid profile for Bali Kratom is optimal. In general, red vein Kratom strains have the most mature alkaloids because they are the last leaves to be harvested. Allowing alkaloids ample time to develop is ideal. Fully developed alkaloids result in extremely potent Kratom powder. Most seasoned users prefer their Kratom strains to contain sufficient alkaloid levels. 

Here is the general alkaloid profile of Red Bali Kratom:

  • Mitragynine: 12.81 mg/g
  • 7-Hydroxymitragynine: 0.01 mg/g
  • Total Alkaloids: 21.94 mg/g

What is Red Bali Kratom Used For?

If you need a strain that encourages comprehensive relaxation and comfort - look no further! Red Bali could be your holy grail. The word “Bali” is synonymous with serenity, peace, and tranquility, which is similar to how people consider this strain to resonate. 

The warm tones provided by the red veined alkaloids offer a uniquely calming experience for the mind and body. Furthermore, some users have reported that the effects tend to last longer when compared to other strains. 

So, if you’re looking for deep relaxation or just need a little help with pesky discomfort, we recommend trying Red Bali. 

Red Bali Kratom Effects:

  • Happy mentality 
  • Discomfort relief 
  • Physical relaxation 
  • Sense of well-being
  • Relief of worry 
  • Encourages restful sleep

Red Bali Kratom Products

The most common Red Bali Kratom product is Kratom Powder. The same can be said for a majority of other Kratom strains, too. Kratom Powder is made using dried Kratom leaves. The dried plant material is ground into a very fine powder. The powder is then used to make Kratom Tea or to do a "Toss and Wash”; which are the two most common ways to consume Kratom.

Another common Red Bali Kratom product is Kratom Capsules. Kratom Capsules are Kratom Powder encapsulated into a pill-like form. Capsules are convenient and easier for people who dislike the natural taste of Kratom. 

At Happy Hippo, we carry Red Bali in both powder and capsule form. 



How Much Red Bali Should I Take?

Always start with a small serving size when evaluating effects. Especially if you’re a Kratom Newbie. About 1-2 grams is what we usually recommend. 

  • 1-2 grams: This is the perfect serving size for beginners or if you’re trying a new strain for the first time. 

    • Note: Our Kratom is stronger than our competitors, you don’t need much! Start small!
  • 3-4 grams: This is a moderate serving size for regular Kratom users. 
  • 5-7 grams: This is a fairly large serving size, but some daily users may require even larger serving sizes. Your body anatomy (height, weight, metabolism) has a lot to do with it, too.
  • 9-10 grams: This is considered a LARGE serving size. Most people who require this large of a serving size have probably been using Kratom for years and developed a tolerance. If your serving size is above 9 grams - try practicing some strategies to reduce your Kratom tolerance.

Hippo Tip: Use a teaspoon (not a tablespoon) to help measure your Kratom powder serving! 

  • 1 level Teaspoon = 2 grams of Kratom powder

  • If you don’t feel the effects within 20-30 minutes, try again in a couple of hours. This time, increase your serving size by a ½ gram. 

    Make sure to slow down and carefully observe how you feel. Continue to increase your serving by ½ gram increments as needed, or until you’ve reached your desired effect. Remember to be patient - it’s worth it!

    Red Bali Kratom Reviews

    We’ve collected 200+ reviews on our Red Bali Kratom Powder. You can find them on our website. If you’d like to read more, simply visit the product page for Red Bali. All of the reviews are located at the bottom of the page. 

    Here are a few that stand out to us: 

    “Red Dragon Bali’s review is self-explanatory for anyone that’s ever tried this strain. It’s my nighttime failsafe strain, my post-gym failsafe strain and any other “jitterbug” failsafe strain——in other words, it destroys ALL “jitterbugs” that you can sometimes get from too much coffee or too much of a fast strain (or using a low quality vendor). As a kratom veteran it works for me without fail every time— if you're new to Kratom, I can only imagine how well you’ll respond to this discomfort-relieving, reliable leaf :)

    - Michael C. | Hippo Customer

    “This is the best Red Bali I've had in a while. Red Bali with me has been hit or miss so I generally stay away from it. But this one really hits, especially for a night strain.”

    - William R. | Hippo Customer

    “I'm about the Red Bali for sure! Bali is by far my favorite strain overall (but I'm a sucker for Yellow Borneo!) I highly enjoy Red Dragon Bali. I would describe it as the Bali with attitude. Just right for say, a relaxing evening out with spouse or friends. Or even a chill, spicy night in. 😁

    Red Bali Kratom vs Maeng Da Kratom

    Maeng Da and Bali are the most popular types of Kratom - hands down. Since Maeng Da has a reputation for being the absolute best Kratom, people want to know how a non-Maeng Da strain compares. 

    Generally, Maeng Da strains are associated with providing energy, motivation, and a pro-social attitude. Red Bali is more subdued and relaxing. However, both types provide an overall sense of well-being and a joyful spirit.

    If we get more specific and compare Red Bali to Red Maeng Da, the first thing to note is that Red Bali provides much stronger relaxation. Red Maeng Da can offer mental relaxation for some, but even more, it has obscure stimulating properties.

    Maeng Da Kratom Strains include:
