For someone not used to discovering the benefits and varieties of kratom, the purchasing choices can 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 hope to offer some aid in helping you making good decisions (or at least help you to avoid the really bad decisions), with regards to purchasing kratom “Incense”.

Please understand the limitations of this article, which should be looked at editorial, because a large amount of the conclusions made herein 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 match 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 seems to make 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 price – right?

Well, probably, not. I’ve done a great deal of first-hand and internet research on 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 usually 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 number of 15X Kratom. Well, 15X kratom is normally priced upwards of 10-to-15 times more expensive by weight (8 times the total 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 might be unpleasant to you, but there are options that may fit your life style, such as capsules.

Something else to think about… by definition, an extract should be removing (extracting) something, as a way to “concentrate something else”, and be 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 exactly the same? I’m not saying that fresh-squeezed OJ is better or worse than “Concentrate”, nonetheless it IS different, & I personally hate that tin-can taste you obtain from concentrate – but you have 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! 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 because the value of “1X Kratom”. 5 grams kratom powder good dose? OK, which means that anyone claiming greater than a 20X extract has performed a miracle – 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 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 get the idea.

what is kratom powder made of PLEASE, AVOID KRYPTON! This 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 is being branded as “fortified”… stick with Mother Nature… Mother Nature is wise, 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.
