For someone new to discovering the benefits and types of kratom, the purchasing choices can be almost overwhelming… and the info is often confusing & conflicting.

Are 15X kratom extracts really 15 times stronger than “traditional” kratom powders & leaves?
Is one seller’s kratom stronger/better/safer then another sellers?
How do i tell if I’m buying real kratom leaves?
vaping kratom powder It’s my desire to offer some aid in assisting you making good decisions (or at the very least help you to avoid the really bad decisions), in terms of purchasing kratom “Incense”.

Please understand the limitations of this article, which should be looked at 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 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 correspond to yours. I encourage you, the reader, to continue your own research, and decide on what is right for you, predicated on your wants, concerns and choices. OK -Let’s begin!

KRATOM EXTRACTS: Upon first blush, it seems to make 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*… after all, 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 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 usually 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 3 to 5 5 times the volume of 15X Kratom. Well, 15X kratom is normally priced up to 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 same dose of plain leaf or powder. Yes, you need to use more product, which may be unpleasant to you, but there are options that may fit your way of life, such as capsules.

Something else to take into account… by definition, an extract should be removing (extracting) something, to be able to “concentrate something else”, and be an extract, right? Now, I really love fresh-squeezed orange juice for breakfast, it’s really 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 – nevertheless, you need to choose what “flavor” is right for you personally – the same holds 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” in that number is arbitrary, but, since 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!! kratom powder red 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 get the idea.

PLEASE, STAY AWAY FROM KRYPTON! The product has sometimes been marketed as a 50X kratom, or Krypton Kratom, but it is a product that is adulterated with another, quite strong synthetic opioid – these things can be lethal! Personally, i feel it’s best 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 really a great fan of kratom extracts, it’s my belief that kratom ought to be used responsibly in its natural, unadulterated form.
