As kratom use has become increasingly widespread in the United States, consumers have begun to demand higher quality from sellers. Kali kratom has emerged as the answer to all of their prayers, a strain that has been heralded as the purest strain in the contemporary marketplace.

For the discerning consumer who has been burned by sub-par smoke shop brands, traditional strains like Kali represent a return to form for mass market kratom powder. With its protracted duration of effects and its gentle aroma, Kali kratom symbolizes the back to basics approach that’s been adapted by some of the finest suppliers in the country.

Users have gone gaga for this strain because of its tender effects and fast pick-up, but few of them are aware of its rich history and distinctive alkaloid profile. Today we’ll take a closer look at what makes this one tick and why you should snatch some up when given the chance.


Kali kratom gets its name from Kalimantan, the Indonesian portion of Borneo Island. It is in this rugged environment that kratom trees grow in fertile clay-based soil that’s dense with minerals and deposits.

It is the soil of Kalimantan that gives Kali kratom its one-of-a-kind alkaloid profile, the contents of which include towering volumes of Ajmalicine, Mitraphylline, Paynantheine, Speciogynine along with Corynoxine A and B. Many of these properties contribute to how sleepy Kali kratom can make the user.


As with most other strains, Kali kratom is readily available in green, red and white vein variants. These individual forms of Kali bear their own unique effects, each of which are amplified by dosage and kratom potentiators.

Green Vein Kali is said to provide a complete kratom experience, meaning it offers a full spectrum of effects. This makes it the ideal choice among athletes and students who want to optimize their workout or hone in on a difficult task.

Unlike other forms of green vein kratom, Green Kali is somewhat nootropic in nature, offering a certain potential for cognitive enhancement at certain dosages. This is due, in no small part, to the presence of certain key indole alkaloids.

I urge our readers to take this information with a grain of salt since nootropic effects tend to be rather moderate and are not reported by all users. Experiences vary widely from person to person, depending on body type, sensitivity and other factors.

By contrast, Red Vein Kali is believed to be a slower variant, one that is more solipsistic and less effective in terms of a boost. Unlike Green Kali, Red Vein Kali contains high concentrations of 7-hydroxymitragynine, making it more valuable in the area of comfort and calmness. This is the strain for you if you’re after what the Khmer-speaking world call “kar thourosbaey.”


White Vein Kali is, perhaps, the least talked-about and most potent of the bunch. Consider it the industry’s best kept secret as it is astounding that this one hasn’t generated more buzz.

White Kali elicits powerful effects that include sociability, clean energy, restfulness, coffee-like pick-me-up and more. A deeply restorative strain, White Kali is believed to be both uplifting and invigorating, giving users a brew that soothes while it emboldens.


Although Kali kratom powder and kratom capsules have been a mainstay in recent years, a Kali kratom shot is something that is only now gaining recognition. The next time you visit a headshop you will likely find a liquid kratom shot bearing the Kali name.

As kratom extracts become more and more popular, it is increasingly likely that consumers will find Kali kratom shots among similar items such as UEI (Ultra Enhanced Indo) and MIT-45.


Referring to Acadica’s White Kali, one user called White Kali amazing, adding that they highly recommend the vendor and strain. Another user agreed, writing, “It’s not as energetic as other whites for me, but there is a mild energy. The pain relief is great; my legs were hurting especially this morning, and now the pain is completely gone. Also, there is a decent mood boost — just enough to get me through the morning.”


In the colorfully titled “Red Kali is my shit” post, a Reddit user writes, “I don’t know why, but all the red kalis I’ve tried just do me right. Pretty much my favorite from all three vendors I’ve tried.”

Speaking about a then-recent purchase of Red Kali another user said, “Just got this the other day. Saved it for when i had a few days off kratom. But i took a low dose compared to my normal 7g it was 4.7g and it had me very relaxed and euphoric feeling pain free. Not even 2hrs into my burn did i start falling asleep while trying to watch tv…”


On the subject of LI Herbals’ Green Vein Kali, another Redditor said it was, “Almost identical to rva’s premium maeng da in my opinion. Great energy and euphoria that lasts a good while!”

Elsewhere a user wrote, “The strain is a full-bodied energetic buzz that allows for calm yet intelligent conversation, as well as focused viewing of movies. Perhaps a bit too euphoric to take while at work or with family, but a truly stand-out strain that is perfect for what I use Kratom for.”


00 size kratom capsules are the most convenient form of Mitragyna speciosa powder. When you purchase vegetarian capsules from legit vendors who know their stuff, you get all the product you need in an easy-to-swallow supplement that takes the headache out of preparing your dose.

Let’s face it, it can be kind of a pain in the ass to measure out your own dosage. A good digital scale can get a bit pricey and using a measuring spoon is a messy ordeal if you’re anything like me. They don’t call me “Shaky Shel” for nothing.

If you want to avoid spills, overdose or the unpleasant clumpiness of the old toss ‘n wash method, kratom caps are the way to go. When it comes to authentic Kali kratom capsules, there are few legit sources in the U.S.

The following is a short list of the top kratom vendors for Kali kratom caps:

  • Left Coast Kratom
  • Original Harvest Kratom
  • Phytoextractum

Each of these vendors has been carefully vetted and represent the top of the heap when it comes to premium grade kratom products at an affordable price point.


If you’re not keen on buying kratom online, you can always buy kratom locally. In states where kratom is legal, there are numerous smoke shops, filling stations and headshops that stock kratom brands.

Buyer beware: Independently-owned tobacco shops and paraphernalia stores are not known for their accountability or affordability. Part of this boils down to simple economics—smoke shop proprietors have to cover the cost of rent on top of inventory and employment of clerks. In order for them to turn a profit, they have to upcharge for kratom products.

The problem is, few smoke shop owners do their due diligence when sourcing kratom powder. Most of them can’t tell you where it came from, how it was grown or whether it has been lab tested for contaminants.

By purchasing kratom locally, you may be putting yourself or others in harm’s way. As a matter of fact, a number of smoke shop kratom brands have been linked to hospitalizations and controversies. One brand was even cut with a synthetic painkiller that could have killed those who ingested it.

If you really want to get your hands on 100% natural kratom that has been properly submitted to a third party laboratory to ensure purity and potency, you’d do well to stick to the aforementioned online sellers.

However, if you are too impatient to wait for a batch to come in the mail, you can always Google “kratom shops near me” or avail yourself of the convenient, user-friendly app Kratom Maps.


Of all the strains that are out there, Kali is arguably the best at producing a well-balanced experience that won’t let you down. If it’s a clean, authentic brew that you’re after look no further. Just be sure to do business with a professional seller. Be safe, be smart and be well.
