  • Could promote relaxation and elevate mood
  • Potentially long duration
  • Possibly somewhat pain-relieving


  • May be overly sedating especially at higher doses
  • Might not be very stimulating


Potentially strong, sedating, and euphoric, Gold Bali should not be overlooked by those desiring a potent evening strain.

Gold Bali kratom icon

To create Gold Bali, kratom farmers supposedly dry Red Bali in the sun for an extended duration. This process “cures” them, altering their color and effects profile.

Most users describe Gold Bali kratom as strongly sedating and euphoric. At moderates doses (2.5-5g), it may promote relaxation and elevate one’s mood. For some users, Gold Bali is also somewhat pain-relieving.

Gold Bali’s seemingly sedative nature might make it ideal as an evening strain, but too fatiguing for daytime use. According to most users, the strain isn’t very energizing.

Gold Bali’s duration seems above average. At moderates doses (2.5-5g), its effects could last up to 3.5-4 hours.

Due to the subjective nature of kratom and personal variations in body and brain chemistry, your experiences with this strain might differ from the average user.

😴 The Best Kratom Strains For Sedation

  1. Anne Nielsen says:

    I take this strain in combination with other sedating strains and for me, it works very well. Since I started taking Gold Bali with either Red Borneo, Red Sunda or Red Bali, I’ve been getting good sleep. I only take 3 teaspoons of each strain, no more than 6 teaspoons total right before I go to bed and I’m good to go.

    If I take more than 3 teaspoons of each, I end up with sort of a hangover the next morning so I’ve learned to dial it back as I used to take more. I really can’t say enough good things about Gold Bali regarding it’s sedating properties. Before I took that, I struggled at night because even though most red strains were sedating, they didn’t last long and I was up in the middle of the night and I’d be tired all day.

  2. Almighty Bob says:

    For some reason, this strain isn’t very sedating for me. (I guess everyone is different), but it’s great at killing pain without causing much, if any, issues with my ability to focus, and it lasts quite a while.

  3. Robert Buff says:

    6 to 8 teaspoons each dose, really ? Do you have a scale ? I find this hard to beleive. I just want to know how you do this without extreme woobles. I believe you if you say so but how many grams would that be ? I find 3.5 to 4 gms in my sweet spot, can’t imagine doing 8 teaspoons in one dose,twice a day, I’m just scratching my head here. To each his own i guess, but I thought minimum dosing is the standard in the kratom family. Love the gold tho, carry on.

  4. Zackary says:

    My favorite strain, I am a daily user who uses 6 to 8 teaspoons each dose twice a day. I have been using for a couple years now and I prefer this strain over any other. It’s very euphoric, sedating, pain-relieving, realives anxiety, and is long lasting. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a strain with any of these properties, just keep in mind it’s not good for any stimulation at all. It mimics traditional painkillers very well and therefore is great for anyone going through withdrawal.

    Burned 10g which is my usual dose and wow…. I gotta say. I set my expectations way too low. This stuff is amazing! Hands down the best bali i’ve ever had! Very long legs as well. I’m blown away! One of the most euphoric and relaxing burns i’ve ever had. Just as good if not better than all the top guys like socal and motark.

    I got his Gold Bali back several months ago. I too was very happy with it. One of the better Bali’s I have had…very euphoric and relaxing. Just puts me in a great mellow frame of mind. Good Stuff.

    The Gold Bali stands out as the most calming, sedating strain of the bunch.

    At first I dosed smaller then usual then worked my way up to my normal dose. Each time doing it the first dose in the morning to get the best effects. At my normal dose this morning was when I really felt it.
    It wasn’t as stimulating as a white, more like a green, maybe a red. Could easily get couch lock with this one. Didn’t have a glowing experience like most have reported. I still prefer my white MD. It was still pretty strong, if I went very much high in my dose, even a gram, I probably would have been pretty wobbly. Not a bad strain if you don’t want to be productive, decent euphoria. I would rate it a 8 out of 10 overall. Wasn’t a bad one, but I doubt I will order again.

    I had a chance to sample Krabot’s Gold Bali last night. It blew Socal and Gaia’s both out of the water. It is a very deep golden color with a powdery grind. I felt like I was getting a big, warm hug as a feeling of relaxation washed over me. The onset was fairly quick which was great because I was hurting bad. It almost completely eliminated my pain without making me feel to drowsy.

    Bali gold is better on the pain relieving side. Both are amazing strains for relaxing!! I reccomend then both
    anyways it’s pretty sedating and provides a huge amount of pain relief. Great pm strain imo

    7. Cb_187
    the Gold Bali is more euphoric in my opinion, a perfect night time strain and one of the few I’ve found to be a somewhat sedating strain.

    8. Latveon333
    gaia gold bali is super chillll, great for relaxing without any stimulation

    9. dmt267
    Not sure about pain relief since I never use it for that. It’s amazing for sleeping,relaxing and gives some awesome euphoria as well

    I’ve got some Bali Gold from Gaia that I love. Great pain relief coupled with the euphoria of a Green.
