Kratom, also known as Mitragynaspeciosa comes in many different strains. The medicinal plant is famous for its therapeutic effects and is used extensively for its beneficial properties.
Bali Kratom, amongst the many varieties of Kratom, is one of the most potent and cheap strain, and therefore one that is widely used across the world. This article will outline the Bali Kratom dosage and administration methods of Bali Kratom to achieve optimum results.
What Is Bali Kratom?
Bali Kratom is one of the most common strains of Kratom. Because of its many advantages, the plant is considered a favorite by many people and is always in high user demand.
Bali Kratom is native to Bali, which is an Indonesian island covering an area of 5780km2. The island is a beautiful tourist spot, known for its forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, beaches and coral reefs.
It has been recently stated that many Bali strains aren’t even grown in Bali, but are named likewise because they provide the same effects that common Bali strains do.
What are the different varieties of Bali Kratom and how do these affect the functioning of the human body?
Like all Kratom strains, the Bali Kratom comes in different varieties. These include;
Red Vein Bali
The red Bali strain is mostly used for its analgesic and anxiolytic properties. At low doses, the strain is believed to provide sedating effects, which become more highlighted by increasing the dosage. The impact of red Bali Kratom, however, don’t last as long compared to other strains.
Green Vein Bali
This strain is considered as one of the most potent and inexpensive Kratom strains today. Compared to the Red strain, it is less sedating and more stimulating and is, therefore, best for treating chronic pain without causing central nervous depression.
White Vein Bali
This strain is famous for its stimulating effects at lower dosages, and analgesic effects at higher dosages. It is used widely in the daytime as an energy booster and as a sedative during the night hours.
Gold (Yellow) Vein Bali
This variety is usually available only in premium and is considered as a more potent form of the red strain. It is extensively used to treat chronic pain, reduce anxiety and boost the appetite levels of the user.
How To Measure Dosage?
Measuring out an appropriate amount of Kratom is the critical step in the administration of the plant. Carelessness with dosage can cause many inconveniences, which may include nausea, headaches, constipation, mild stomach problems, blurry vision and in extreme conditions, dependency, tolerance or addiction.
To avoid any issues, it is best to use a suitable method for Kratom measurement. While many people use a tablespoon for this purpose, it is not a recommended technique. This is because the different strains of Kratom have different textures.
Some Kratom strains may be very finely powdered, due to which measurement by volume (using a tablespoon) will result in a higher dose than intended. Also, some people consume Kratom leaves in their raw form, due to which measuring by volume becomes impossible.
Guesstimating in such cases is never advised, and should, therefore, be abstained from. The best method to measure Kratom is, perhaps, using an electronic scale. These are available at very convenient rates, with almost all Kratom Vendors.
The scales come in different forms and can measure a wide range of masses. If however, you’re looking for an exact measurement, you could choose a scale that is accurate to 3 decimal places (i.e., 0.001g).
What Is The Best Dosage for Bali Kratom?
Kratom effects are very closely related with the amount of intake. The substance can deliver different properties at different dosages, which change with every Kratom strain.
To potentiate the full effects of Bali Kratom, it is necessary to take an adequate amount of the substance.
While dosage may depend on factors such as individual weight, tolerance, metabolic activity, Biochemistry, stomach acidity and diet, a general dosage guideline for Bali Kratom has still been established.
If you are new to this field, it is advised that you start from a very low dose of about 1g. This dosage will be able to deliver subtle, but noticeable, mood lifting and stimulating effects.
A dosage of about 1-2g of Bali Kratom can provide mild mood lifting and stimulating effects.
At this dose (2-4g), a person can feel common effects. There is a balance between stimulating, sedating, euphoric, anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) and analgesic (pain relieving) properties. This dosage is considered best for regular users since modesty is the best policy.
A high dose of Bali Kratom ranges from about 4 to 6g. At this dose, Kratom can deliver strong analgesic and sedative effects. It may also induce a sense of euphoria or high.
Very High Dose
A dosage of 6-8g or higher will cause highly sedative effects. The euphoria will be more pronounced, and higher doses may even lead to hallucinations. At this dose, a person is more susceptible to suffer from Kratom side-effects.
How To Take Bali Kratom?
Bali Kratom is administered via the same methods that are generally used for all Kratom strains. These include;
Toss and Wash
This is the most common form of Kratom consumption. It involves taking a measured amount of Kratom powder (measurement of Kratom has been discussed previously) and ingesting it with a glass of water. Because Kratom powder tends to stick to the sides of the mouth, it is best if you swill the water in your mouth (just as you swirl mouthwash) before swallowing it.
In The Form of Capsules
Taking encapsulated Kratom powder is also among the more straightforward ways of Kratom consumption. As Kratom capsules are almost tasteless, they are usually preferred by people who cannot bear the bitter taste of the substance.
The capsules come in different sizes, generally ranging from size 000, which is the largest, to size 5, which is the smallest. Leading Kratom suppliers, however, use the size 00 capsule, which is considered as standard. This size holds nearly 546 mg or 0.546 g of Kratom powder.
Although this method of administration is reasonably straightforward, many people avoid it because it usually involves taking more than ten pills. Moreover, taking Kratom pills shows delayed effects because the body has first to digest the gelatin capsules.
By Adding It Into A Drink
Kratom powder can be mixed with some drinks to mask its bitter taste. It is preferably added to acidic fruit juices such as orange juice, cranberry juice, grapefruit juice, lemon juice, etc. It can also be taken along protein shakes.
By Making Kratom Tea
Kratom tea can be made from either Kratom leaves in their raw form or with Kratom powder. This method involves boiling up the powder or the leaves with some water for 30 minutes.
Allow the tea to sit before straining off the liquid. This method might take more time and effort, but users have stated that they feel the results are better and more consistent.
Bali Kratom is perhaps the best strain for people who are looking for a wide range of effects at meager and convenient rates. The dosage and administration of the substance vary for users depending upon individual needs and preferences. It is advised that all Kratom users experiment with different dosages to find their ‘sweet spot’ and discover the most suitable method of consumption for them.See References:
