Kratom extract is a concentrated form of kratom made by boiling water and kratom leaves to extract alkaloids from the plant, then evaporating it to leave a thick paste rich in alkaloids like mitraphylline, mitragynine, and 7-hydroxymitragynine. In doing this the kratom is very potent and produces a very intense high. In the extraction process, the goal is to pull the desired alkalines out of the plant material. More alkaloids are extracted in the process of making kratom extract than in the process of making kratom powder, which is why kratom extract is so much more potent than powder.
Our Kratom powder is sourced from farmers in southeast Asia, mostly in Indonesia. We only purchase organically grown kratom, directly from the growers, and we only do business with at least 15-year-old established farmers that have been growing kratom in traditional methods, well before the American kratom rush. To ensure we are purchasing from farmers who are truly selling Fresh, Pure, and Potent Kratom Powder we always have our kratom sent to a 3rd party American laboratory for full panel testing. This is done before the kratom is available to the public. We also test to make sure the kratom is free of harmful bacteria, heavy metals, salmonella, lead, or any harmful impurities often found in unregulated Kratom Powder. We do all the research and testing to make sure we always supply our customers with the cleanest, freshest and purest kratom powder available, directly from the farmers in southeast Asia. Our Kratom is strictly only picked from 8+ year old kratom trees that produce the highest alkaloid content from our farmers who have been organically growing kratom trees for generations.
What Kratom is
Kratom is a natural botanical native to tropical Southeast Asia that is part of the coffee family. It’s also known by its scientific name, Mitragyna Speciosa. The people of Southeast Asia have used Kratom leaves as an herbal supplement and traditional remedy for hundreds of years. When taken in appropriate amounts, Kratom can provide increased energy, minor pain relief and many find relief from a variety of other mental and physical ailments. Today, people in the U.S. are consuming Kratom, as they do other herbal supplements and traditional remedies.
What Kratom is not
Kratom is not a drug. Kratom is not an opiate. Kratom is not a synthetic substance. Naturally occurring Kratom is a safe herbal supplement that’s more akin to tea and coffee than any other substances. Kratom behaves as a partial mu-opioid receptor agonist and is used for pain management, energy, even depression and anxiety that are so common among Americans. Kratom contains no opiates, but it does bind to the same receptor sites in the brain. Chocolate, coffee, exercise and even human breast milk hit these receptor sites in a similar fashion.
Ways to use Kratom
Kratom can be consumed in a number of ways. It’s a natural botanical ingredient that can be used in dietary supplements, steeped as tea, taken in powder form or in capsules to safely provide energy and natural pain relief.
Kratom is not habit forming
Kratom is non-habit forming, unless taken in extremely high doses for extended periods of time. If taken in excess, continuously over long periods of time, Kratom consumers may experience dependence, similar to caffeine dependence. There can also be some discomfort if taken daily and use is abruptly discontinued. This can be avoided by taking regular breaks and/or gradually tapering down consumption levels.
Kratom products are not recommended for use by minors or for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
