For someone new to discovering the benefits and kinds of kratom, the purchasing choices could be almost overwhelming… and the information is often confusing & 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 seller?
- How do I tell if I’m buying real kratom leaves?
It’s my hope to offer some aid in assisting you making good decisions (or at the least enable you to steer clear of the really bad decisions), when it comes to purchasing kratom “Incense “.
Please understand the limitations of this information, which is highly recommended editorial, because plenty of the conclusions made herein are a results of my own, personal search for “the facts”, when it comes to buying this phenomenal leaf. The claims contained herein are sensible choices, but are more importantly my own, personal choices, predicated on my wants, concerns and tastes – which may not necessarily match yours. I encourage you, the reader, to carry on your own personal research, and decide on what’s right for you personally, based in your wants, concerns and choices. OK -Let’s begin!
KRATOM EXTRACTS: Upon first blush, it seems to produce sense (and save dollars) to buy 28 grams (that’s one ounce) of “15X Full Spectrum Kratom” for $80*, Then an ounce of “Commercial Kratom” leaf or powder for $10*… after all, it’s 15X stronger, and only 10X the cost – right?
Well, almost certainly, not. I’ve done quite a bit of first-hand and internet research with this, and for me, along with the general consensus from a number of other users in piles of forums, is that the “good starter dose” of 15X extracts are generally around 2 or 3 grams. As as it happens, a “good starter dose” of a quality standard commercial leaf or leaf powder is about 7-10 grams, or 3 to 5 times the total amount of 15X Kratom. Well, 15X kratom is normally priced well over 10-to-15 times higher priced by weight (8 times the quantity within my example*), Kratom powder so you’ll likely pay more per dose for the 15X extract then for the equivalent dose of plain leaf or powder. Yes, you’ll need to make use of more products, which might be unpleasant for you, but you will find options that’ll fit your lifestyle, such as for example capsules.
Another thing to think about… by definition, an extract must certainly be removing (extracting) something, in order to “concentrate something else”, and be an extract, right? Now, I truly love fresh-squeezed orange juice for breakfast, this really is delicious, in taste and texture and aftertastes. “Frozen from concentrate” orange juice, is a red juice extract… are they the same? I’m not saying that fresh-squeezed OJ is much better or worse than “Concentrate”, nonetheless it IS different, & Personally, i hate that tin-can taste you obtain from concentrate – but you’ll need to choose what “flavor” is right for you personally – the same is valid when 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 must certainly be some potent stuff! Honestly, the “X” because a number is arbitrary, but, since the typical Mitragyna speciosa (kratom leaf) alkaloid content is right-around 5%, we’ll use that number as the worth of “1X Kratom “.OK, this means that anyone claiming higher than a 20X extract has performed a miracle – they’ve extracted over 100 (5% times 20 = 100%) of the alkaloids in those leaves!! Would you genuinely wish to “dose-up” on something sold as what must certainly be a lie (or at the least a cautious deception)? Personally, I’m also dubious of anything labeled & branded as “Super” or “Ultra” or “ultimate”… you obtain the idea.
PLEASE, STAY AWAY FROM KRYPTON! This product has sometimes been marketed as a 50X kratom, or Krypton Kratom, but it is a product that has been adulterated with another, very good synthetic opioid – this stuff could be lethal! Personally, i feel it’s best to stay-clear of anything that’s 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 really a great fan of kratom extracts, it’s my belief that kratom should be properly used responsibly in its natural, unadulterated form.
