Kratom Extracts

What You Need To Avoid

If you've ever heard any negative stories about kratom, odds are it's from someone using (and then easily abusing) extracts. The alkaloids in the leaf of kratom are isolated and extracted resulting in 50x or more per dose. This results in a highly condensed and concentrated form which can be devastating to your tolerance.

This massive increase to your tolerance means regular leaf won't work anymore. Unless you decide to take a big break from kratom all together, you will only experience any effects from continually taking extracts.

Along with an increased tolerance, you'll become very dependent on it. This will end up meaning significant withdrawals. Suddenly kratom isn't the subtle and safer opioid, and it becomes a potentially dangerous health concern. Although I've never personally experienced withdrawals, from kratom extracts, they are often compared to serious opioids like oxycodone online.

What This Could Mean

Extracts give kratom a bad name. Just about every story about kratom from the media has a ton of misinformation, but extracts can give them some truth. If kratom were to become illegal, I can guarantee they would never realize extracts are the only problem and keep regular kratom legal. It would be an unfortunate widespread ban.  It really doesn't help too when headshops (who often has low quality kratom to begin with) label extracts as something that will get you high with a massive head rush.

What You Need To Know

If you know someone who plans to try kratom, let them know to just stick with the regular leaf. Besides the obvious health concerns, extracts also increases likelihood of overdosing and becoming drowsy. You can easily buy extracts without even knowing (like with enhanced blends which are extracts mixed with regular kratom). Here are the different types of extracts you can find online:

  • Oil
  • Tincture
  • Enhanced Blends
  • Liquid
  • Powder
  • Resin

Yes, extracts can and is taken responsibly by some, but it usually does more harm than good. If you're going to take it anyway, make sure it's only on occasion. You will experience a great effect at first, but will build up a tolerance immediately. The thing is that regular high quality kratom can be very strong. If it's not for you, either find a better vendor or go through a Washout to reduce tolerance.
