Kratom Extracts: What They Are & Why You Might Love Them

Kratom is a botanical that’s used by many people in different ways, but many of those consumers aren’t aware of what kratom extracts are or how they can be used. Most people stick to using kratom powders or leaves to make kratom tea or capsules, but the extracts provide some different benefits that might be interesting.

Have you ever tried kratom extracts as part of your routine before? If not, it might be time to learn more about this unique version of kratom to see if it would be a great addition to your lifestyle.

Let’s talk about the four main reasons we think that kratom extracts are worth considering.

Serving Size Adjustments

Using standard kratom powder and leaf can be difficult for some people. Even if they find the botanical to be beneficial, some may experience nausea because of the quantity of tea or capsules that they need to take as their serving size.

Have you ever experienced nausea when taking your serving? Do you find that even changing up the amount or type of kratom has down little to relieve any side effects?

If so, it might be possible that the amount of powder or tea that you use simply won’t rest well with your stomach. Everyone’s body is different, so this is possible.

When using kratom extracts, however, you are using a more robust product. This means that the serving sizes can be much smaller and still have the same type of effects. Often, the smaller serving size makes it possible to take kratom without the any undesired effects.

Choosing Wisely

Finding the balance between the serving size, wanted effects, and side effects is always a process. Start with ½ the serving size that you are accustomed to using whenever you switch to kratom extracts.

From there, you can increase the amount that you use until you find the perfect balance for your needs. Your body can react in various ways, so it’s best to take your time to find what works for you rather than overwhelming yourself with a new product.

Added Power

That point that we’ve made about smaller serving sizes brings us to another important point: kratom extracts are to be more concentrated than their powder counterparts, meaning the alkaloid content is higher.

We often recommend to those that use kratom to regularly alternate how much kratom they use to prevent any type of tolerance from developing. Mixing in an extract from time to time can give you a temporary boost for that day without fully increasing how much of the supplement you use.

We know not everyone will be happy using extracts every single day, but taking the supplement as a boost on occasion is an excellent way to have a little extra kick.

Save Yourself Some Money

Another benefit of using the extracts over other types of kratom products is that they can be more affordable in the long run. Most people use much smaller serving sizes whenever they use extracts because they are more potent.

Whenever you are using smaller serving sizes, you don’t need as much product. In many cases, that means that you might be able to save yourself a good bit of money by switching to extracts sometimes.

Still, keep in mind that some extracts are actually two or three times more expensive than their standard counterparts. This is because the process of creating these extracts is much more intensive than the standard kratom supplements, and the extra labor and/or materials is reflected in the cost.

To figure out if you can save money by switching, think about the following:

  • • How much kratom do you use weekly? How much does it cost?
  • • How much would half the amount of a comparable kratom extract cost?
  • • If the extract costs less when this math is done, you can save some money!

As mentioned, not everyone will find extracts more affordable. It depends on how much you plan to take per serving and how powerful the serving is. Some extracts are as concentrated as 4x or even 10x the standard serving, so you have to do a little bit of math to determine the most cost-effective choice for your needs.

Explore The World Of Kratom

Are you a curious spirit with a thirst for trying new things? Do you love adventures, trying new foods, and just getting out of your usual routine?

If so, you might find using the exact same routine for your botanicals day after day, week after week to be a bit boring. And that’s okay! Not everyone finds the regularity of a routine to be comforting, and you don’t have to stick to the same kratom day after day if you don’t want to.

Not only can mixing up your usual products with kratom extracts instead change your routine, but there are also a few different types of kratom products that you can try. You already know about kratom powders, leaves, and powder extracts. But have you heard about liquid extracts?

Liquid Kratom Extracts

At Kraken, you can also purchase liquid kratom extracts. Similar to powdered kratom extract, they tend to be more powerful than standard kratom, but that will depend on what specific item is being taken. Liquid versions are not usually made for standard strength kratom because of the process required to make these concentrated products.

Most liquids are extract-strength of 2x, 4x, or more. These liquid products are very easy to use, and that is another huge draw for many people. You can easily add your daily serving to your coffee, juice, smoothie, or just take it directly. Serving sizes are typically less than five mL, so it’s very easy to take.

If you aren’t into the idea of using a liquid as your kratom extract, there are also some kratom extract capsules and tablets that can be used when you’re out and about and want to easily take your favorite botanical!
