For someone new to discovering the benefits and varieties of kratom, the purchasing choices could be almost overwhelming… and the info is frequently confusing & kratom powder capsules for sale 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 avoid the really bad decisions), with regards to purchasing kratom “Incense”.
Please understand the limitations of the article, white kratom powder which should be considered editorial, because a lot of the conclusions made herein are a result of my own search for “the truth”, with regards to buying this phenomenal leaf. The claims contained herein are sensible choices, but are more importantly my own personal choices, based on my wants, concerns and tastes – which may not necessarily correspond to yours. I encourage you, the reader, to continue 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 appears to create sense (and save dollars) to get 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, together with the general consensus from a great many other users in piles of forums, is that 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 around 7-10 grams, or 3 to 5 5 times the amount of 15X Kratom. Well, 15X kratom is usually priced up to 10-to-15 times more costly 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 may be unpleasant to you, but you can find options that may fit your way of life, such as capsules.
Something else to take into account… by definition, an extract must be removing (extracting) something, to be able 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 way better or worse than “Concentrate”, nonetheless it IS different, & Personally, i hate that tin-can taste you get from concentrate – nevertheless, you have to Lead Generation choose what “flavor” is right for you – the same is true whenever choosing your “flavor” of kratom.
CRAZY EXTRACT CLAIMS: If you’ve been researching, you’ve probably seen 35X, 50X… 120X… even 250X Kratom extracts. WOW, this should 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 because the value of “1X Kratom”. OK, this means that anyone claiming greater than a 20X extract has performed a miracle – they’ve extracted a lot more than 100% (5% times 20 = 100%) of the alkaloids in those leaves!! You don’t want 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! This 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 – this stuff can be lethal! I personally feel it’s best to stay-clear of anything that has been 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 really a great fan of kratom extracts, it’s my belief that kratom should be used responsibly in its natural, unadulterated form.
