For anyone a new comer to discovering the advantages and kinds of kratom, the purchasing choices could be almost overwhelming… and the information is usually 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 hope to supply some aid in assisting you making good decisions (or at the very least allow you to prevent the really bad decisions), in regards to purchasing kratom “Incense “.
Please understand the limitations of this informative article, which should be considered editorial, because a lot of the conclusions made herein are a consequence of my own personal look for “the reality”, in regards to purchasing this amazing leaf. The claims contained herein are sensible choices, but tend to be more importantly my own personal personal choices, based on my wants, concerns and tastes – which may not necessarily match yours. I encourage you, the reader, to keep your own research, and decide on what is right for you personally, based in your wants, concerns and choices. OK -Let’s begin!
KRATOM EXTRACTS: Upon first blush, it seems to make 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*… all things considered, it’s 15X stronger, and only 10X the cost – right?
Well, most likely, not. I’ve done quite a bit of first-hand and internet research with this, and for me, combined with the general consensus from many other users in piles of forums, is a “good starter dose” of 15X extracts are often around 2 or 3 grams. As as it happens, a “good starter dose” of an excellent standard commercial leaf or leaf powder is just about 7-10 grams, or 3 to 5 times the amount of 15X Kratom. Well, 15X kratom is normally priced well over 10-to-15 times higher priced by weight (8 times the quantity within 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’ll need to utilize more product, which may be unpleasant for your requirements, but there are options that will fit your lifestyle, such as capsules.
Something else to think about… by definition, an extract should 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 how much kratom leaf powder. “Frozen from concentrate” orange juice, is an orange juice extract… are they 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 – but you’ll need to choose what “flavor” is right for you personally – the same is 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” for the reason that number is arbitrary, but, since the conventional Mitragyna speciosa (kratom leaf) alkaloid content is right-around 5%, we’ll use that number as the worthiness of “1X Kratom “.OK, this means that anyone claiming higher than a 20X extract has performed a miracle – 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 should 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 get 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 has been adulterated with another, very strong synthetic opioid – this stuff could be lethal! Personally, i feel it’s better to stay-clear of anything that is being branded as “fortified”… stick to Mother Nature… Mother Nature is wise, Mother Nature knows best!
