For someone new to discovering the benefits and varieties of kratom, the purchasing choices can be almost overwhelming… and the information is frequently confusing & effects of kratom capsules 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 helping you making good decisions (or at the very least help you to steer clear of the really bad decisions), in terms of purchasing kratom “Incense”.
Please understand the limitations of this article, how to taper off kratom powder which should be considered editorial, because a large amount of the conclusions made herein are a result of my own seek out “the truth”, in terms of buying this amazing leaf. The claims contained herein are sensible choices, but are more importantly my very own personal choices, based 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 personally, based on your wants, concerns and choices. OK -Let’s begin!
KRATOM EXTRACTS: Upon first blush, it seems to make 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 cost – 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 2 or 3 3 grams. As it turns out, a “good starter dose” of a quality standard commercial leaf or leaf powder is just about 7-10 grams, or 3 to 5 5 times the volume of 15X Kratom. Well, 15X kratom is usually priced upwards of 10-to-15 times more expensive by weight (8 times the total amount in my example*), so you’ll likely pay more per dose for the 15X extract then for the equivalent dose of plain leaf or powder. Yes, you need to use more product, which might be unpleasant to you, but there are options that may fit your way of life, such as capsules.
Something else to think about… by definition, an extract should be removing (extracting) something, as a way to “concentrate something else”, and be an extract, right? Now, I must say i love fresh-squeezed orange juice for breakfast, it is delicious, in taste and texture and aftertastes. “Frozen from concentrate” orange juice, is an orange juice extract… are they exactly the same? I’m not saying that fresh-squeezed OJ is way better or worse than “Concentrate”, nonetheless it IS different, & Personally, i hate that tin-can taste you obtain from concentrate – but you have to B2B Database choose what “flavor” is right for you – the same is true whenever choosing your “flavor” of kratom.
CRAZY EXTRACT CLAIMS: If you have been researching, you’ve probably 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, since the typical Mitragyna speciosa (kratom leaf) alkaloid content is right-around 5%, we’ll use that number as the value of “1X Kratom”. OK, therefore anyone claiming greater than a 20X extract has performed magic – they’ve extracted a lot more than 100% (5% times 20 = 100%) of the alkaloids in those leaves!! Do you really desire to “dose-up” on something sold as what should 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 obtain the idea.
PLEASE, AVOID KRYPTON! The product has sometimes been marketed as a 50X kratom, or Krypton Kratom, but it is a product that has been adulterated with another, quite strong synthetic opioid – this stuff can be lethal! Personally, i feel you need to stay-clear of anything that is being branded as “fortified”… stick to Mother Nature… Mother Nature is wise, Mother Nature knows best!
CONCLUSION: As you likely can tell, I’m personally not just a great fan of kratom extracts, it’s my belief that kratom ought to be used responsibly in its natural, unadulterated form.
