For someone new to discovering the benefits and types of kratom, the purchasing choices can be almost overwhelming… and the info is frequently 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”.

Please understand the limitations of the article, which should be considered editorial, because a lot of the conclusions made herein are a result of my own seek out “the truth”, when it comes to buying this phenomenal leaf. The claims contained herein are sensible choices, but tend to be more importantly my very own personal choices, predicated on my wants, concerns and tastes – which may not necessarily correspond to yours. I encourage you, the reader, to continue your own research, and decide on what is right for you personally, 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 purchase 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 cost – right?

Well, probably, not. I’ve done a great deal of first-hand and internet research on this, and in my opinion, along 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 works out, a “good starter dose” of a quality standard commercial leaf or leaf powder is around 7-10 grams, or three to five 5 times the amount of 15X Kratom. Well, 15X kratom is usually priced upwards of 10-to-15 times more expensive by weight (8 times the total amount in my example*), so you’ll 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 should be removing (extracting) something, in order to “concentrate something else”, and become an extract, right? Now, I must say i 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 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 obtain from concentrate – but you have to choose what “flavor” is right for you – the same is true whenever choosing your “flavor” of kratom.

WOW, this must be some potent stuff! how much is a gram of kratom powder Truth be told, the “X” for the reason that number is arbitrary, but, since the typical Mitragyna speciosa (kratom leaf) alkaloid content is right-around 5%, we’ll use that number because the value of “1X Kratom”. OK, which means that anyone claiming more than a 20X extract has performed magic – they’ve extracted more than 100% (5% times 20 = 100%) of the alkaloids in those leaves!! You don’t 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, AVOID KRYPTON! The product has sometimes been marketed as a 50X kratom, or Krypton Kratom, but it is a product that is adulterated with another, very strong synthetic opioid – these things can be lethal! I personally feel it’s best to stay-clear of anything that is being branded as “fortified”… stick to Mother Nature… Mother Nature pays, Mother Nature knows best!

CONCLUSION: As you likely can tell, I’m personally not really a great fan of kratom extracts, it’s my belief that kratom should be used responsibly in its natural, unadulterated form.
