Red Bali is a unique strain because, although offered by almost all vendors, kratom actually is not grown in Bali. Bali is a city that contains a major shipping port out of Indonesia. Early importers of kratom simply assumed the port as the origin of the leaf and used the name to distinguish it from other kratom strains. At the time, in the early to mid-2000’s, Bali was also commonly known in the U.S. as Premium Commercial. The quality then was typically quite good, and it seems the reputation of Bali kratom stuck. There is no question now that Bali is one of the oldest and most popular kratom names in the United States. Like any other strains, not all Bali comes from the same origin. Our Red Bali kratom is our most popular Bali kratom, and it is a consistent favorite among some shoppers of red kratom powder.
