Are 15X kratom extracts really 12-15 times more potent than “traditional” kratom powders & results in?
Is one seller’s kratom stronger/better/safer then another sellers?
How do i tell if I’m purchase kratom leaves?
Is actually my hope to offer some aid in helping you making very good decisions (or at least help you to avoid the really bad decisions), when it comes to purchasing kratom “Incense”.
Please understand the limitations of this article, which should be considered editorial, because a lot of the conclusions produced herein are a result of my own search for “the truth”, in terms of buying this amazing leaf. The claims contained herein are usually sensible choices, but are more importantly my own personal choices, based on our wants, concerns and tastes – which may not necessarily correspond to yours. I encourage you, the reader, to continue your own analysis, and decide on what is right for you, based on your wants, worries and choices. OK -Let’s begin!
KRATOM EXTRACTS: After first blush, it seems to make sense (and save dollars) to purchase 28 grams (that’s one ounce) of “15X Full Spectrum Kratom” for $80*, Then an ounces of “Commercial Kratom” leaf or powder for $10*… after all, it’s 15X stronger, and only 10X the cost instant right?
Well, most likely, not. I’ve done quite a lot of first-hand and internet research on this, and in my opinion, along with the basic consensus from many other users in piles of discussion boards, is that a “good starter dose” of 15X ingredients are usually around 2 or 3 grams. As it turns out, a “good starter dose” of a quality standard commercial leaf or perhaps leaf powder is around 7-10 grams, or 3 to 5 moments the amount of 15X Kratom. Well, 15X kratom is usually charged upwards of 10-to-15 times more expensive by weight (8 situations the amount in my example*), so you’ll likely pay more per serving for the 15X extract then for the equivalent dose connected with plain leaf or powder. Yes, you need to use more solution, which may be unpleasant to you, but there are options that may match your lifestyle, such as capsules.
Something else to think about… by definition, a great extract must be removing (extracting) something, in order to “concentrate anything else”, and be an extract, right? Now, I really adore fresh-squeezed orange juice for breakfast, it’s really delicious, in tastes and texture and aftertastes. “Frozen from concentrate” lemon juice, is an orange juice extract… are they the same? Now i am not saying that fresh-squeezed OJ is better or more serious than “Concentrate”, but it IS different, & I personally hate this tin-can taste you get from concentrate – but you must choose what “flavor” is right for you – the same is valid when choosing your “flavor” of kratom.
CRAZY EXTRACT PROMISES: If you’ve been researching, you’ve probably seen 35X, 50X… 120X… even 250X Kratom extracts. WOW, this must be several potent stuff! Truth be told, the “X” in that number will be arbitrary, but , since the typical Mitragyna speciosa (kratom leaf) alkaloid content is right-around 5%, we’ll use of which number as the value of “1X Kratom”. OK, this means that any person claiming more than a 20X extract has performed a miracle tutorial they’ve extracted more than 100% (5% times 20 = 100%) of the alkaloids in those leaves!! Do you really would like to “dose-up” on something sold as what must be any lie (or at least a careful deception)? Personally, I’m just also dubious of anything labeled & branded since “Super” or “Ultra” or “ultimate”… you get the idea.
YOU SHOULD, STAY AWAY FROM KRYPTON! This product has sometimes been marketed as being a 50X kratom, or Krypton Kratom, but it’s a device that has been adulterated with another, very strong synthetic opioid – this stuff can be lethal! I personally feel it’s best to stay-clear with anything that is being branded as “fortified”… stick with Mother Nature… Our mother earth is wise, Mother Nature knows best!
