What is Gold Bali Kratom Good For?
Gold Bali Kratom can be good for a ton of things. The classic Bali strain is known for its potency and amazing effects.
If you’re unfamiliar with gold kratom strains, they tend to be more sedating and relaxing. This makes it a really good choice for so many reasons.
This is honestly one of my favorite gold strains. I like to use it as an afternoon or evening strain. I don’t necessarily like to take it in the morning because of the sedation it gives me after some time.
If you’re looking for a morning strain, I recommend you try out a white or green strain, such as Green Maeng Da. But, we’ll talk about Green Maeng Da another time.
I’ll show you what this strain is good for and it’s top, gold standard effects.
Gold Bali Kratom Effects
Gold Bali Kratom for Sleep
This is one of the best kratom strains for sleep. It’s very similar to a red kratom strain, just slightly more sedating.
If you suffer from a sleep order, like insomnia, you’re not alone. Over 3 million Americans alone can’t fall or stay asleep. This can be super debilitating to your health and mental health as well. You also can’t get your work done properly if you lack sleep. Not to mention, this can cause you to be in a grumpy mood.
I struggle with falling or staying asleep sometimes. When I don’t get a restful night, I wake up with extreme grogginess and it definitely affects my motivation.
When I took Gold Bali Kratom for the first time, I wanted to test it out. I took it about 2-3 hours before hitting the hay. Let me tell you, 5 grams of this had me feeling very sleepy. I was dead asleep for the entire night.
If you’re looking to try this strain to help you get some sleep, take around 4-6 grams (if you’re not a newbie) a few hours before bedtime. Thank me later.
Good for Those With Chronic Pain
The alkaloid properties in Gold Bali Kratom strain make it an ideal pain reliever.
Natives in Southeast Asia often use Gold Bali for its medicinal benefits. They typically chew on the leaves or crush it to turn into a powder. The powder then gets simmered into a tea.
Tons of people here, in the West, have been using it as a replacement for their over-the-counter medications too.
Typically, customers tell me it helps them for the following ailments and pain:
- Back Pain
- Chronic Headaches
- Inflammation of tendons
- Nerve Pain
- Muscle Cramps
The list just goes on. Since it’s a natural herbal remedy, there’s little to no side effects and are mostly harmless. I’ve noticed that Gold Bali helps with headaches that I get from caffeine withdrawals. When I get these headaches, they last throughout the day.
Once I take a strain, like Gold Bali, I feel relieved and ready to continue on with my day.
Helps Significantly Reduce Anxiety
There’s no denying that anxiety is on the rise. It’s not just a problem for young adults. Full-grown adults deal with anxiety and stress from so many different things.
Maybe it’s your job, your relationships, health problems, or family issues. Any type of stress can be really triggering and keep you from enjoying your day.
As someone who suffers from anxiety, Gold Bali has really helped keep me leveled and relaxed. Since it’s more relaxing than a strong white or green strain, I find that this strain works better for reducing my mental stress and anxiousness that usually radiates throughout my body.
I definitely recommend this strain if you want something soothing and that makes you feel good overall.
Good for Relaxing
As I mentioned, this strain is very relaxing, especially at higher dosage amounts.
If you’re looking to unwind for the evening, Bali Gold Kratom can be your go-to strain. Read a book, get cozy on the couch for a movie, or do some meditation. Gold Bali will help take you to a tranquil place.
I love how relaxed I feel whenever I take this strain. I think it’s a lot better than taking other, more harmful alternatives.
What is Gold Bali Kratom?
You might be wondering how Gold Bali Kratom gets its name. To start off, it’s considered a Bali strain because it’s found on the tropical island of Bali in Indonesia.
The rich and unique soil, humidity, rain, sunlight amount, and agricultural practices make Bali kratom thrive here. However, not all Bali Kratom is grown in Bali. Weird, right?
Doing the same processes and obtaining the same plant seeds from these kratom treese can let farmers throughout Southeast Asia get the same, or very similar, Bali Kratom plants.
Now, why is it considered a “gold” strain?
Well, there’s a lot of mixed information and uncertainty as to why it’s a gold kratom. However, the best answer I can give you is that it is considered “gold” because of the appearance. The appearance typically happens from the sun-dried process of red strains.
Red strains aren’t always used. It can vary sometimes and give you different effects. But, the drying process usually happens through photo-oxidation, where the kratom leaves are left to dry for a few weeks.
All the drying and processing mechanisms make its appearance look gold/yellow, thus, making it a gold strain.
How Many Grams of Gold Bali Kratom Should I Take?
When taking Gold Bali Kratom, it’s important to note that the dosage amount is going to depend on a lot of things.
So, if you’ve just started taking kratom and have never tried a gold strain before, you’ll want to start with about 1.5-2.5 grams. Then, you can increase by 0.5 – 1 gram each time to increase the potency effects.
For moderate relaxation, 3-4 grams will suffice. If you want to take kratom for sleep, and are not a beginner, around 4-6 grams is the average amount for sleep and sedation.
Here’s my general recommendation for Gold Bali Dosage:
Gold Bali Kratom Vs Red Bali
It sounds like Gold Bali Kratom is very similar to Red Bali Kratom. But, which one is better and how do they differ?
Well, users claim that Gold Bali is a bit more stimulating than Red Bali. I find that they’re pretty similar and actually felt that Gold Bali was a bit more sedative. However, it could be due to the higher dosage amount I took.
Gold Bali is also said to be more euphoric, while Red Bali is better for pain. One reddit user mentioned that they like it way more than Red Bali, while another said Gold Bali didn’t do much for them. However, there were quite a few reviewers that mentioned there wasn’t much of a difference for them.
As far as pain relief,I think they can both work well for pain. I suggest trying both and see what effects you like from each. It’s all going to depend on what you’re looking for in a strain, you’re tolerance, and what vendor you buy from.
In general, Red Bali is still more popular within the kratom community, but a lot of it could be due to the fact that it’s been around longer. Don’t let that keep you from trying Gold Bali though, it’s a personal favorite and I think some of you might like it too.
