There are a number of extracts from a number of kratom vendors available on-line. We know how confusing it can be when first hearing about these extracts and trying to determine if they are worth the extra cost against regular Kratom leaf and Kratom Powders.
Firstly, what do the numbers mean ? Well, if you are looking at a 15x Kratom extract, it means it takes 15 grams of raw kratom to make 1 gram of extract, hence 15:1 strength. So that being said, you should be able to say your getting 15 times the value, or getting 15 times the strength... wrong ! A lot of alkaloids are lost in the extraction process, and therefore although it takes 15 grams of leaf to make 1 gram of kratom extract.... 1 gram of kratom extract is not as strong as 15 grams of kratom powder or leaf. The emphasis of extraction is on the mitragynine and 7-OHM - The most desired alkaloids in kratom. We estimate that 15x extract is around 6 times stronger that leaf of powder (per gram). We hope this makes sense.
In summary the main benefit of kratom extracts is less material to work with and therefore less material to swallow.
Manufactured through cold water extraction, the infamous Kratom 15x has been a hit for many years. This tan powder is made by the Chinese and opinions vary; most either love it or hate it. We enjoy mixing Kratom 15x with Regular Kratom leaf or powder to kick start the effects. Kratom 15x is often put into capsules for easy use.
Kratom Resin Extract (and Kratom Pies) is made by boiling large amounts of fresh leaves until they form a very stable resin extract. The final product ranges from soft gooey brown resin to very hard dark (almost black) resin. The smell is amazing... good enough to eat. Try to buy a kratom resin that is hard (not gooey). You want to ensure the least amount of water content as possible. Don't spend your hard earn cash on water when buying kratom resin.
Many people ask us about stronger Kratom extracts and which extract has the strongest effects. We always suggest, from a value perspective, the best product is Kratom Powder. Weve seen sites seeling Kratom 60x and stronger, but the reviews on these "high strength kratom extracts" have been poor. The extracts above are all we would recommend, but if you hear of anything that has been good quality and value for money, please let us know.
