For someone new to discovering the benefits and varieties of kratom, the purchasing choices could be almost overwhelming… and the information is frequently confusing & conflicting.

Are 15X kratom extracts really 15 times how much kratom capsules to take 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?
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), with regards to purchasing kratom “Incense”.

Please understand the limitations of the article, which should how to take kratom powder be looked at editorial, because a large amount of the conclusions made herein 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 tend to be 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 choose what is right for you personally, predicated on your wants, concerns and choices. OK -Let’s begin!

KRATOM EXTRACTS: Upon first blush, it appears 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*… after all, it’s 15X stronger, and only 10X the price – right?

Well, probably, not. I’ve done a great deal of first-hand and internet research with this, and in my opinion, combined with the general consensus from many other users in piles of forums, is that a “good starter dose” of 15X extracts are usually around 2 or 3 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 normally priced up to 10-to-15 times more costly by weight (8 times the 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 you can find options that may fit your life style, such as capsules.

Something else to take into account… by definition, an extract should be removing (extracting) something, as a way to “concentrate something else”, and become 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, 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 get from concentrate – but you have to choose what “flavor” is right for you personally – the same holds true whenever 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” in 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, which 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!! Do you really want to “dose-up” on something sold B2B Database 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, AVOID KRYPTON! This product has sometimes been marketed as a 50X kratom, or Krypton Kratom, but it is a product that is adulterated with another, very strong synthetic opioid – these things can be lethal! Personally, i feel you need to stay-clear of anything that is being 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.
