The Ins and Outs of Kratom Extracts
What is a Kratom Extract?
Kratom extracts are known for being the strongest form of kratom that you can find. They are super-concentrated powders or liquids that contain a higher amount of alkaloids than what can typically be extracted from the dried leaves. Extracts tend to be brewed after the drying phase, to really pull out the alkaloids and seep things. After that, the leaves are dried again and then turned into a powder.
A very small dose of kratom extracts can equal a much larger dose of the powder. If you are inexperienced with this plant, you should work your way up to using kratom extracts. Taking this form right off the bat can potentially make you feel sick, or may induce unpleasant side effects.
Who Are They Best For?
As we mentioned, kratom extracts are not good for beginners. They are potent and should be purchased by veteran kratom users only. Additionally, you should also keep in mind that these much more potent forms will not be cheap.
Of all the kratom products out there, extracts tend to be the most expensive, because of how highly concentrated they are. It’s common sense, but also worth noting if that’s an issue for you.
Additionally, kratom extracts, like all products, come in a large variety of strains. You should try a few out to find the one that works best for you.
How To Find Good Kratom Extracts
Like all kratom products on the market, finding high quality extracts can be difficult. This herbal supplement is raved about by millions of people around the world, but it is also unregulated and understudied. This means there is no standard quality control in place for what can and can’t be sold as ‘kratom’. If you don’t research vendors well enough, you can end up with fake products, or powders with tons of dangerous additives.
In the future, look for companies that implement independent lab testing on all of their products. That means they are confident in the kratom they’re selling and you are less likely to be duped.
