Balinese kratom has become one of the most coveted forms of kratom on the market. This is due in no small part to the euphoria that many users have experienced. Tons of kratomites have come to us, talking about how “zen” Bali made them.

But not all Bali kratom is created equal.

What’s the difference between Red Bali and White Bali? Surprisingly, there is a marked difference and one which we will delve into here.

As some of you probably already know, red vein strains tend to be especially effective in terms of analgesia. If we go on the word of countless kratom users who turned to kratom because of their chronic pain, this seems to be its number one utility.

By comparison, white vein strains are less stimulating and are allegedly most effective at improving mood, making them popular among those suffering from depression and anxiety.


Red Bali has long been regarded as the kratom strain that is best for sleep. It has been used to treat insomnia and night shift sleep disorder. Users believe it possesses a plethora of potential benefits from anxiety relief and improved mood to relaxation and more.

Kratom’s alkaloids work on receptors in our brain which suggest that it has possible value as a nootropic or cognitive enhancer. Many users claim that it sharpens their focus and help them to concentrate.

Red Bali is among those strains which are believed to enhance cognitive function, although there is insufficient scientific data to support this hypothesis. By and large, Red Bali is considered a better alternative to other OTC sleep aids as it induces a state of calm and is shown to have sedating effects.

So, what are people saying about Red Bali? Users have said that it is great for pain. One user on Reddit called it their “all time favorite strain of Kratom,” saying, “It is the dank indica of kratom.”


There is no shortage of kratom vendors from whom you can buy kratom online, but not all of them are on the level, so to speak. Some of the best kratom vendors only stock certain kratom strains. This can be due to a number of different variables like distribution or cost of importing kratom.

As such, you will often find kratom websites that only offer Red Bali or White Bali and not both. This is not a reflection of how good one is over the other, rather it is a reflection of the economy and other factors.

Some of the most-talked about sources of Red Bali include Coastline Kratom, Mystic Island, Planet K and Gaia Ethnobotanical. All of these vendors offer fair prices and quality kratom products.


Whereas Red Bali is notorious for its euphoric, relaxing effects, White Bali is kind of the polar opposite. This one is favored by those who are looking for a serious energy boost. It is far more stimulating than Red Bali and is generally considered one of the best strains for depression.

Whether you’re looking for a clean pick-me-up or mild stimulant, White Bali may be the right strain for you. Like all varieties of kratom, White Bali comes from the coffee family of plants, but unlike coffee, it isn’t known to give users a case of the jitters.

White Bali has a higher volume of 7-hydroxymitragynine, the active alkaloid that is largely responsible for kratom’s potential for analgesia. Some believe it is less sedating than Red Bali because it contains a smaller amount of ajamalicine, the Mitragyna speciosa (kratom) plant’s anti-adrenergic alkaloid.

Red Bali also contains more speciogynine than White Bali, making it more of a muscle relaxant. For this and other reasons, White Bali may be ideal for users who are planning to hit the gym or cram for final exams.

What are people saying about White Vein Bali?

Users have called it the perfect white, with one person saying, “It’s got great energy, but not to the point of anxiety inducing. A very smooth come up, and then BAM, I’m goin’ HAM. Others have burned it with great results and the vast majority have been very happy with their White Bali experience.


White Bali is slightly more rare than Red Bali, but that doesn’t mean it’s unavailable. On the contrary, there are a number of reputable kratom vendors who stock it online, some of whom offer bulk kratom powder for affordable prices.

They include Authentic Kratom, Coastline Kratom, Original Harvest Kratom and Oregon Kratom.


Red Bali and White Bali both share analgesic and anxiolytic properties, but that’s where the similarity stops. Red Bali might be a solid choice for someone coping with sleep issues, but White Bali is where it’s at if you want to be super-stimulated.

Of course, results will likely vary from person to person, but this is what the kratom community has said and who are we to break with the kratom warriors that keep kratom going?
