For someone new to discovering the benefits and varieties of kratom, the purchasing choices could 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?
How can I tell if I’m buying real kratom leaves?
It’s my desire to offer some aid in helping you making good decisions (or at least help you to steer clear of the really bad decisions), when it comes to purchasing kratom “Incense”.

bali kratom powder vein Please understand the limitations of the article, which should be looked at editorial, because a large amount of the conclusions made herein certainly are a result of my own search for “the truth”, in terms of buying this phenomenal 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 may not necessarily correspond to yours. I encourage you, the reader, to continue your own research, and choose what is right for you, predicated on your wants, concerns and choices. OK -Let’s begin!

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

Well, probably, not. I’ve done quite a lot of first-hand and internet research with 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 often around 2 or 3 3 grams. As it turns out, a “good starter dose” of an excellent standard commercial leaf or leaf powder is just about 7-10 grams, or three to five 5 times the quantity 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 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 must be removing (extracting) something, so as to “concentrate something else”, and become an extract, right? Now, I really love fresh-squeezed orange juice for breakfast, it’s really delicious, in taste and texture and aftertastes. kratom powder and klonipin 1mg “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 – nevertheless, you have to 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 should be some potent stuff! Honestly, 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 as the value of “1X Kratom”. OK, this means that anyone claiming more 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!! You don’t desire to “dose-up” on something sold as what must be a lie (or at the very least a careful deception)? Personally, I’m also dubious of anything labeled & branded as “Super” or “Ultra” or “ultimate”… you obtain 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 – 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.
