Gaia Gold Bali has been voted the best strain by a wide cross-section of kratom users. Although some online kratom forum communities have spoken ill of this brand, the overwhelming majority of boarders swear by their gold and yellow vein kratom powder.
In the case of Gold Bali, some have suggested that the quality is hit or miss with one user saying, “I dont order from Gaia any longer because each time I would buy the kratom would be different even though I was ordering the same kind.”
Despite this alleged lack of consistency, Gaia Bali Gold has continued to earn five star ratings and glowing reviews. So, what’s all the fuss about? And is this really the gold standard when it comes to enhanced blends?
Let’s delve into this mysterious strain and see what it’s really all about.

Gold Bali Kratom is a rare and remarkable “strain” that is often produced by means of fermentation and/or natural photosynthesis. A delicate blend that’s made from the leaves of Red Vein Bali trees, Gold Bali is made by exposing plant matter to direct sunlight for a controlled period of time.
Once photosynthesis has occurred, the chemical makeup of the leaves is naturally altered. It’s at this point that some farmers collect the exposed leaves and store them in bags where they are left to ferment before further production transpires.
This process yields a product with a golden tint, increased levels of carbon dioxide and a higher concentration of key alkaloids including, but not limited to, the terpenoid indole alkaloid 7-OH (7-hydroxymitragynine).
MitraGaia (formerly Gaia Ethnobotanicals) manufactures Gold Bali and other Gaia Kratom strains in a variety of forms including raw powder, blends and kratom capsules.
Any seasoned kratomite can tell you that Mitragyna speciosa strains are unpredictable, particularly if they have been enhanced by natural or not-so-natural means. For example, kratom extracts can be so powerful as to knock you on your ass…or they can be weaker than your average plain leaf.
Much of the potency we have come to expect of kratom owes more to shrewd marketing than real world experiences. After all, this Ayurvedic herb is enjoyable and useful in a number of areas, but it’s not some panacea that can cure all of the world’s woes. This isn’t a fairy tale, this is real life.
That being said, Gold Bali has a well-earned reputation as one of the strongest options on the market, and it does not disappoint. Gaia Bali Gold’s effects lie somewhere between a good white vein kratom strain and a bold red vein kratom powder.
Commonly reported effects include all of the following:
As I mentioned in my Mitragaia vendor review, this seller is one of the most affordable options around. They have long maintained bargain basement pricing for small batch kratom and a host of convenient payment options.
This vendor’s Gold Bali is just $3.35 for an ounce. You read that right! MitraGaia gives you a full 28+ grams for less than you’d spent on a two capsule packet at a smoke shop. This is easily the cheapest one-ounce pouch I’ve encountered online.
If you’re like so many of us voracious kratomites, you probably like to buy bulk kratom powder and kratom capsules. This is another area in which MitraGaia excel—their bulk deals are as fair and cheap as anything you’ll find in the United States. In fact, I’d venture so far as to say that they are the cheapest bulk option you’ll find with any kind of quality or consumer reputation to back them up.
You can score a kratom kilo for a mere $80.40!! That’s well below the industry standard and emblematic of the savings one can count on when shopping with mitragaia.com.
As with my Ganesh MD Gaia Blend experience, I was delighted with their Bali Gold powder. I popped three capsules as soon as they arrived (in record time, I might add) and felt it hit in under 10 minutes. The vitality and motivation that rushed through me was accompanied by a warmth I would normally associate with Super Green Malay.
As with SGM, I felt compelled to plow through work with a certain ineffable gusto while, also, riding a substantive wave of calm and cool elation. This elation reminded me of a strong Maeng Da, especially a Red MD.
Unlike Red MD, I did not feel nauseous or jittery at any point. On the contrary, I felt hungry, inspired and ready to seize the day. While some have pointed to Gold Bali as a nighttime strain, I’d have to beg to differ; in my humble opinion, this is a well-balanced any time variant.
Even though some haters have called Mitragaia the McDonald’s of vendors, others have stood by them over the years. I’m just one of many individuals who believe in brand loyalty when it’s well-deserved. MitraGaia will always have my business because they’ve never ceased to grow and surprise. Their Gold Bali is a shining example of this and one that has attracted a rabid following.
One user on Reddit said, “Well Gaia’s Gold Bali is probably one of the best strains I’ve ever had…
I took it on Saturday and it was awesome then. I took it again this morning and I’ve never felt this good from Plain Leaf before. Not even when I first started taking Kratom.”
Another user promptly agreed, writing, “It’s probably my overall favorite and it’s the “strain” that has made some people I know a “believer” in kratom for recreational use…”
Mitragaia Bali Gold is the way to go if you want to get your hands on a genuine gold strain with a track record of satisfying even the most jaded consumer. This baby’s strong, so watch your dosages and enjoy responsibly. Be safe, be smart and be well.
