Red Bali vs Red Kali Comparison

July 17, 2018 Articles, Kratom Alkaloids, Kratom Reviews, Kratom Strains

Red Bali is a mainstay among most kratom vendors because it’s highly potent and, therefore, wildly popular. But Red Kali has also caught on among kratomites for its powerful anxiolytic properties. While kratom is generally known for its analgesic and stimulating qualities, Bali strains are renowned for their potential sedating and calming effects.

Both Red Vein Bali and Red Vein Kali may be useful for those who are seeking a natural botanical that can enrich their life and induce a sense of calm. They have their origins in Borneo, although they are each grown on separate islands.

So, how do these two kratom strains compare and contrast?

The truth is, they are actually very similar, although it’s worth noting their differences as one may be more beneficial than the other depending on your needs. Here is a detailed breakdown of both strains so that you’ll have a better idea of which might appeal more to your and your personal needs.


Taking its name from the port from which kratom is imported to the US and other countries, Red Bali kratom is up there with Green Maeng Da in terms of the strongest kratom strains available. This is due to its high volume of alkaloid content, particularly 7-hydroxymitragynine which may be responsible for its euphoric and relaxing effects.

7-hydroxymitragynine is well-known as both an analgesic and an organic stress reliever. This terpenoid indole alkaloid has been studied for its potential as a natural pain reliever with results showing improvement in laboratory mice.

Red Vein Bali has been used by people with nerve pain, Fibromyalgia, peripheral neuropathy, RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis), anxiety disorders and much, much more. Although the FDA has not approved kratom for human consumption, many people have attested to its medicinal value.

Our own brand of Red Bali is a long-time bestseller. It has been harvested from mature plants and contains no stems.


Users have reported a variety of effects from Red Bali, all of which may vary depending on dosage and one’s physiological response to the leaves of the Mitragyna speciosa (kratom) plant. These effects may include any of the following:

  • Anxiety relief
  • Pain management
  • Improved mood
  • Relaxation
  • Relief from depression
  • Sedation
  • Relief of inflammation


The kratom community has been very vocal about the importance of proper dosing. Those who have burned kratom know that it is not advisable to take kratom in large doses when you are not accustomed to its strength and varied effects.

Those who take too much kratom all at once can experience a range of undesirable effects, such as jitters, “the wobz” (aka wobbles), nausea, cramps or diarrhea.

For these reasons, most experienced kratom users will tell noobs to stick to 2 grams as a threshold dose before building to a light dose of 2.5-4 grams over time. Anything in excess of 7-8 grams is considered a high dose and should be avoided until one is acclimated to kratom and its effects.

Taking its name from the island of Kalimantan, Kali is one of the most uplifting and sedating kratom strains. Harvested from the large leaves of M. speciosa plants from the giant, rugged island, Red Kali is often grown in “dahas,” agroforestry plots that make for a unique Ayurvedic farming technique.

It is an interesting farming process that relies on the fertility of the land with the kratom trees being planted where grain was previously harvested. Oftentimes, kratom is grown in these dahas alongside fruit and timber trees which provides an ecosystem that guarantees pollination and mineral-rich soil.

These farming conditions can influence the volume of alkaloids propagated in the kratom plant, increasing the kratom leaves’ potential for anxiolytic and analgesic effects.


Red Kali has been implemented as a natural detox by those dieting due to its antioxidant properties. It is, perhaps, the most diverse of all kratom strains, acting as an antidiarrheal, an antioxidant, an anti-anxiety herb and an analgesic among many other potential effects.

Many users have experienced a dramatic reduction in stress levels and mild relief from chronic pain as well as relief from fatigue. Those with CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and Fibromyalgia have used Red Kali to reduce fatigue and joint inflammation.

As a mild strain, Red Kali is a great choice for beginners since it isn’t as potent in certain areas as other kratom strains. Nevertheless, it is considered an effective strain for many ailments.

Its effects may include any or all of the following:

  • Pain relief
  • Improved mood
  • Mild stimulation
  • Strong sedation
  • Relaxation


As with Red Bali, seasoned kratom warriors will tell you not to take anything in excess of 2-3 grams when you are burning kratom for the first time. It is always best to toss n’ wash in moderation. Moderate doses are between 2-4 grams, respectively.


There are numerous Kali strains out there from White Vein Kali to Ultra Enhanced Red Kali, but White Kali is more of a gym strain in that it is notorious for its effects on energy levels and stamina.

Ultra Enhanced Red Kali is a mix of Red Kali’s pure alkaloids and natural Kratom Bali leaf which some say enhances its effects, but the American Kratom Association’s Chief Lobbyist, Charles “Mac” Haddow has said that enhanced kratom or kratom extracts are a bad idea as they basically bastardize the natural benefits of pure kratom powder.

At the end of the day, Red Kali is the very best Kali strain and one that may be able to induce a zen state of mind and some very real relaxation.

Red Bali and Red Kali share many of the same purported benefits, but each is more effective in those respective areas. Red Bali is more stimulating while Red Kali tends to be more sedating. I think you’ll agree that all red vein kratom strains are awesome in their own ways. Happy kbombing, brothers and sisters!
