For someone not used to discovering the benefits and types of kratom, the purchasing choices can be almost overwhelming… and the info is frequently confusing & how often can you take 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 assisting 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 the article, kratom bali 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”, when it comes to 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 might not necessarily match 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, probably, not. I’ve done quite a lot of first-hand and internet research with this, and in my opinion, along with the general consensus from a great 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 works out, a “good starter dose” of an excellent standard commercial leaf or leaf powder is around 7-10 grams, or 3 to 5 5 times the number of 15X Kratom. Well, 15X kratom is usually priced upwards of 10-to-15 times more expensive by weight (8 times the amount in my example*), so you will likely pay more per dose for the 15X extract then for the equivalent dose of plain leaf or powder. Yes, you should employ 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 think about… by definition, an extract must be removing (extracting) something, in order to “concentrate something else”, and be an extract, right? Now, I really 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 better or worse than “Concentrate”, nonetheless it IS different, & Personally, i hate that tin-can taste you get from concentrate – but you need to BUSINESS DATA choose what “flavor” is right for you – the same is true when choosing your “flavor” of kratom.
CRAZY EXTRACT CLAIMS: If you have been researching, you might have seen 35X, 50X… 120X… even 250X Kratom extracts. WOW, this must be some potent stuff! Honestly, 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, which means that anyone claiming greater than a 20X extract has performed a miracle – they’ve extracted 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 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 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 is 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 with Mother Nature… Mother Nature pays, 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 should be used responsibly in its natural, unadulterated form.
