For someone not used to discovering the benefits and varieties of kratom, the purchasing choices can be almost overwhelming… and the info is often confusing & kratom capsules at walmart conflicting.
Are 15X kratom extracts really 15 times more potent than “traditional” kratom powders & leaves?
Is one seller’s kratom stronger/better/safer then another sellers?
How can I tell if I’m buying real kratom leaves?
It’s my desire to offer some aid in assisting you making good decisions (or at least help you to steer clear of the really bad decisions), when it comes to purchasing kratom “Incense”.
Please understand the limitations of this article, how to drink kratom powder which should be considered editorial, because a large amount of the conclusions made herein certainly are a result of my own seek out “the truth”, with regards to buying this amazing leaf. The claims contained herein are sensible choices, but are more importantly my very own personal choices, predicated on my wants, concerns and tastes – which may not necessarily correspond to yours. I encourage you, the reader, to keep your own research, and choose what is right for you, predicated on your wants, concerns and choices. OK -Let’s begin!
KRATOM EXTRACTS: Upon first blush, it appears to create sense (and save dollars) to purchase 28 grams (that’s one ounce) of “15X Full Spectrum Kratom” for $80*, Then an ounce of “Commercial Kratom” leaf or powder for $10*… in the end, it’s 15X stronger, and only 10X the price – right?
Well, most likely, not. I’ve done quite a lot of first-hand and internet research on this, and in my opinion, combined with the general consensus from many other users in piles of forums, is a “good starter dose” of 15X extracts are often around two or three 3 grams. As it works out, a “good starter dose” of a quality standard commercial leaf or leaf powder is just about 7-10 grams, or three to five 5 times the quantity of 15X Kratom. Well, 15X kratom is usually priced up to 10-to-15 times more expensive by weight (8 times the total amount in my example*), so you will likely pay more per dose for the 15X extract then for the same dose of plain leaf or powder. Yes, you need to use more product, which may be unpleasant to you, but you can find options that may fit your lifestyle, such as capsules.
Something else to take into account… by definition, an extract should be removing (extracting) something, so as to “concentrate something else”, and be an extract, right? Now, I must say i love fresh-squeezed orange juice for breakfast, it’s really delicious, in taste and texture and aftertastes. “Frozen from concentrate” orange juice, can be an orange juice extract… are they the same? I’m not saying that fresh-squeezed OJ is better or worse than “Concentrate”, but it IS different, & I personally hate that tin-can taste you get from concentrate – but you have to B2B Sales Leads choose what “flavor” is right for you – the same is true when choosing your “flavor” of kratom.
CRAZY EXTRACT CLAIMS: If you’ve been researching, you might have seen 35X, 50X… 120X… even 250X Kratom extracts. WOW, this must be some potent stuff! Truth be told, the “X” for the reason that number is arbitrary, but, because the typical Mitragyna speciosa (kratom leaf) alkaloid content is right-around 5%, we’ll use that number as the value of “1X Kratom”. OK, because of this anyone claiming greater than a 20X extract has performed magic – they’ve extracted more than 100% (5% times 20 = 100%) of the alkaloids in those leaves!! You don’t desire to “dose-up” on something sold as what must be a lie (or at least a careful deception)? Personally, I’m also dubious of anything labeled & branded as “Super” or “Ultra” or “ultimate”… you get the idea.
PLEASE, STAY AWAY FROM KRYPTON! The product has sometimes been marketed as a 50X kratom, or Krypton Kratom, but it’s a product that has been adulterated with another, quite strong synthetic opioid – these things can be lethal! I personally feel it’s best to stay-clear of anything that has been branded as “fortified”… stick with Mother Nature… Mother Nature pays, Mother Nature knows best!
CONCLUSION: As you likely can tell, I’m personally not really a great fan of kratom extracts, it’s my belief that kratom ought to be used responsibly in its natural, unadulterated form.
