Gold Kratom – often referred to as Yellow Kratom – is exclusive to Bali. Bali offers a unique climate that favors Gold Kratom, and the soil fertility is ideal. This strain is one of the ‘Red Vein’ families of Kratom, and we’ll talk more about that later.
Gold Kratom is a relatively mild strain and is therefore a good starting point for beginners. It has a unique alkaloid profile. Gold Kratom is known for its consistent quality and is harvested especially on its own.

What are the Side Effects of Gold Kratom?

However, in larger doses, there can be problems. Gold Kratom is known to be a particularly sensitive strain when taken in larger doses. We are talking about a dose greater than 9 grams.
Such a dose can produce side effects that are far from pleasant. Nausea, for example, and an upset stomach may be felt. Headaches and dizziness, paranoia, and other effects of a psychoactive nature may also occur.
The most commonly reported effect is the ‘Kratom Wobble.’ This is a condition where the user cannot focus and loses control of vision due to the eyes constantly moving. It may last minutes or can last hours.
A brief guide to dosages says that the safe dose is less than 6 grams, and for new users, it is advisable to start at a single gram and work up until you achieve the effect you desire.
Should I use Gold Kratom?
