For anyone new to discovering the huge benefits and varieties of kratom, the purchasing choices can be almost overwhelming… and the info 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 sellers?
- Just how can I tell if I’m buying real kratom leaves?
It’s my hope to provide some aid in assisting you in making good decisions (or at least enable you to steer clear of the really bad decisions), when it comes to purchasing kratom “Incense “.
Please understand the limitations of this informative article, which is a highly recommended editorial, because plenty of the conclusions made herein are results of my own personal look for “the facts”, when it comes to buying this particular leaf. The claims contained herein are sensible choices, but tend to be more importantly my own personal choices, based on my wants, concerns and tastes – that might certainly not correspond to yours. I encourage you, the reader, to carry on your own research, and determine what is right for you, based on your own wants, concerns and choices. OK -Let’s begin!
KRATOM EXTRACTS: Upon first blush, this indicates to create 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 price – right?
Well, almost certainly, not. I’ve done quite a bit of first-hand and internet research on this, and for me, combined with the general consensus from many other users in piles of forums, is that a “good starter dose” of 15X extracts are often around 2 or 3 grams. As as it happens, a “good starter dose” of a quality standard commercial leaf or leaf powder is just 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 more costly by weight (8 times the amount in my own 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’ll need to use more product, which may be unpleasant for you, but you will find options that could fit your lifestyle, such as capsules.
Something else to believe about… by definition, an extract must certanly be removing (extracting) something, to be able to “concentrate something different”, 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? Fresh Kratom 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 receive from concentrate – but you’ll need to choose what “flavor” is right for you – exactly 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 must certanly be some potent stuff! Honestly, the “X” because 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 more than a 20X extract has performed magic – they’ve extracted over 100 (5% times 20 = 100%) of the alkaloids in those leaves!! Can you actually want to “dose-up” on something sold as what must certanly 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 receive the idea.
PLEASE, STAY AWAY FROM KRYPTON! This system has sometimes been marketed as a 50X kratom, or Krypton Kratom, but it’s a product that’s been adulterated with another, very strong synthetic opioid – this stuff can be lethal! Personally, i feel it’s better to stay-clear of anything that’s being branded as “fortified”… stay with Mother Nature… Mother Nature is wise, Mother Nature knows best!
CONCLUSION: As you likely can tell, I’m personally not only a great fan of kratom extracts, it’s my belief that kratom should be utilized responsibly in its natural, unadulterated form.
