Varieties of Kratom
There are many different Types of Kratom advertised on the internet. These include leaves, enhanced leaves, extracts, powders, resins, tinctures and so forth. Below we have a few descriptions for your convenience.
Kratom Resin: This is a concentrated form of Kratom which is created by condensing the leaf down through a cooking method and extracting the alkaloids to produce a small, tar like mass which is much stronger than the leaf itself.
Kratom Powder: Kratom powder is generally stronger than crushed leaves because the stem and veins of the leaf are often removed, leaving the parts of the leaf which contain the highest amount of the active alkaloids.
Stem and Vein: The Stem and Vein is generally removed during the grinding of the leaf to produce powder, but still contains active alkaloids, although only approximately 25% of what the other leaf material contains.
Kratom Extract: This generally comes in a powder form and is a concentrated form the Kratom, thus providing a stronger or enhanced effect.
Kratom Tincture: The extracted alkaloids or Concentrated Kratom Powder is soluble in alcohol which allows for an alternative delivery system. Tincture droplets are delivered sublingual and have a strong effect.
Enhanced Kratom: Enhanced Kratom is often as simple as an extract being added to a regular strength powder. There are also some strains of Kratom that are overall stronger than others and these are sometimes referred to as enhanced.
Crushed Leaf Kratom: This is basically what the title implies. Crushed leaf Kratom contains all of the leaf material, stem and veins and is often used as a tea for the delivery system.
