Unmatched in potency and purity, Kratom 15x extract is a super-charged version of its source, the kratom leaf. Gaining power and clarity via simplicity, this highly concentrated version of Mitragyna Speciosa is loaded with bioactive alkaloids. 15x Kratom extracts are literally 15 times more concentrated than regular powdered products. While there may be stronger extracts marketed, experienced users prefer ones in the 10 – 20x potency range because only they can claim to be full spectrum extracts. They are used as an additive to boost efficacy, or on their own as a special delicacy for kratom lovers. Here’s a quick guide to how it’s made, how to use it, and where to get it.
How Is Kratom 15x Extract Made?
Most of us first encounter an “extract” on the kitchen cupboard, with the popular baking ingredient vanilla extract – a very concentrated form of the flavoring. Medicinal extracts are equally purified and intensified versions of their original form. Kratom extract is created by boiling crushed kratom leaves and then gradually evaporating the water, until only a sticky, thick resin is left. After it hardens, this very potent resin is crushed into a fine powder. We call that powder “kratom extract.”
What does the “X” mean? Even though it may look similar to regular dry kratom powder, 15x extract is, as the name implies 15 times as strong. That’s because it takes 15 grams of source material to produce every single gram of extract. If you were to see a kratom product marked 25x, that would mean that 25 grams of leaves were used to produce 1 gram of extract, and so on.
What Are The Effects of Taking Kratom 15x Extract?
As you might expect, consuming an extract version of kratom will produce a stronger physical and mental effect. You can expect the same character of effects, but many users report that the effects last a lot longer.
Extract as an additive to regular strength powder: Many people enjoy adding a small amount of extract (around 20 percent of a total dose) to their normal kratom powder of choice. This dash of extract can boost the duration and intensity, and is in fact how commercially available “Enhanced” blends are made.
Are there side effects? If you take too much of an extract, you may experience some mild side effects, including, dry mouth, anxiety, and loss of motor coordination. That’s why it’s important to keep a good eye on dosage any time you consume extract.
How Does My Dosage Change When Using Extract?
Naturally, if you are taking kratom extract on its own, you will want to dramatically scale back your dosage amount. Remember, this powder is 15 times as powerful as your usual favorites! For most people, a single gram of kratom extract constitutes a full dose. Do not exceed 3 grams of extract – anything over that number will overly sedate you and lead to a very sleepy experience.
Is 15x Kratom Extract More Expensive?
Due to its highly concentrated nature, buying kratom extract is indeed more expensive than normal strength varieties. High quality Kratom 15x extract powder does cost more initially, but it ends up being comparably priced to other forms once you factor in the dosage that most people enjoy per session. In fact, if you take advantage of higher quantity bulk deals, kratom extract becomes very inexpensive – as little as 3 dollars or less per dose, for an extremely potent product.
Going To The Source: Kratom Resin
Some users also like to experiment with kratom in resin state. When well-made, 8x Kratom Resin is not overly sticky or messy. It has a hard and dense texture, easy to break off. You can grind this resin into your own extract, or you can consume the resin on its own.
Can kratom resin be smoked? Some people have had success with smoking kratom resin, as well as the kratom 15x extract it produces. Most users agree though that smoking any kratom product is not the ideal way to consume it. There is no potency advantage whatsoever to this method, over simply eating or drinking an infused tea or snack. With the added stress on the body that any smoking brings, it is best avoided if possible. Simply break off a piece of resin, crush it into powder, and add to tea, food, or another blend if you like. Any of these simple methods will produce the same intense, “enhanced” effects of Kratom 15x extracts.
