All You Need To Know About Buying Kratom
Often in today's modern world we turn to our doctors and
pharmacists for the answers to our stressed lives and out-ofcontrol emotions. Discontentment and stress can break the
body down and cause real sickness. But it isn't necessary to
get a prescription and pump your veins full of synthetic
chemicals in order to feel better. The tools to a happier and
more productive life are found in nature. Kratom is a diverse
plant that has been used in Asia for centuries. Kratom and
kratom products are legal, safe, and provide a wide range of
treatments for various ailments. Reduce your stress levels and
increase your productivity without endangering your body with
harmful chemicals and lethal intoxicants.
It increases your ability to enjoy life but is completely legal and
safe. In low doses, this versatile plant works as a stimulant but
without the increased danger to your circulatory system.
Increasing the dose makes you feel calm and relaxed, again
without putting your body through the shock that the flip flop
between caffeine and sedatives can.
Those who struggle with chronic pain will find that kratom
products can help them in two ways. The first is as a pain killer.
An active lifestyle is seldom possible when suffering from
chronic pain. Even the smallest things, such as taking a walk,
standing for extended periods of time, or doing household
chores, suddenly become laced with pain and discomfort. The
relaxation caused by the kratom, coupled with its natural painfighting properties, can greatly improve quality of life. Those
who have rheumatoid or psoriatic arthritis will find they are
suddenly able to come out of the cloud of pain and live again.
When you are in chronic pain, it is extremely easy to become
dependent on your pain medication. Kratom products can not
only replace your pain medication but are often used as a
treatment for opiate addiction. Imagine starting a safe pain
regime that will also help relieve the physical and emotional
stress of addiction.
It is important to note that the effects of kratom products differ
from person to person. Because of this, most websites that sell
kratom often offer a diverse selection. Different strains can
affect different aspects of treatment. Finding the right strain for
your purposes is important. However, with the help of the right
kratom products, you will find your quality of life improving and
your stress levels decreasing rapidly.
For someone new to discovering the benefits and varieties of
kratom, the purchasing choices can be almost overwhelming...
and the information 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
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), 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 made
herein are a result of my own search for "the truth", when it
comes to buying this amazing leaf. The claims contained herein
are sensible choices, but are more importantly my own
personal choices, based 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, based on your wants, concerns and
choices. OK -Let's begin!
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 cost - 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
general consensus from many other users in piles of forums, is
that a "good starter dose" of 15X extracts are usually around 2
or 3 grams. As it turns out, a "good starter dose" of a quality
standard commercial leaf or leaf powder is around 7-10 grams,
or 3 to 5 times the amount of 15X green malay. Well, 15X
kratom is usually priced upwards of 10-to-15 times more
expensive by weight (8 times the amount in my example*), so
you'll likely pay more per dose for the 15X extract then for the
equivalent 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 lifestyle, such as capsules.
Something else to think about... by definition, an extract must
be removing (extracting) something, in order to "concentrate
something else", and be an extract, right? Now, I really love
fresh-squeezed orange juice for breakfast, it's really 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 better or worse than
"Concentrate", but it IS different, & I personally hate that tin-can
taste you get from concentrate - but you need to choose what
"flavor" is right for you - the same holds true when 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 must be some
potent stuff! Truth be told, 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 as the value
of "1X Kratom". OK, this means that anyone claiming more than
a 20X extract has performed a miracle - they've extracted more
than 100% (5% times 20 = 100%) of the alkaloids in those
leaves!! Do you really want to "dose-up" on something sold as
what must be a lie (or at least a careful deception)? Personally,
I'm also dubious of anything labeled & branded as "Super" or
"Ultra" or "ultimate"... you get the idea.
PLEASE, STAY AWAY FROM KRYPTON!
This product has sometimes been marketed as a 50X kratom,
or Krypton Kratom, but it's a product that has been adulterated
with another, very 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!
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.
