Benefits of Kratom: In general

Before we start with kratom powder and extract, let us briefly discuss Kratom’s excellent benefits.

Kratom comes from the speciosa tree and has been popular among the natives of Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and other parts of southeast Asia. It has high alkaloid content, making it a potent herb for health and wellness purposes. As Kratom is available in different strain varieties like Red Green and White Maeng Da Kratom,  the alkaloid composition differs, and so do the results.

All strains of Kratom provide different effects, and here are some of the benefits you may expect from each strain:

  • Energy Boosting
  • Relaxation
  • Pro-Social Attitude 
  • Increased mental focus
  • Relief from Physical Discomfort 
  • Mood enhancement
  • Improved sleep quality

What is Kratom Powder?

Kratom powder is the most popular form of kratom product. It is prepared from kratom leaves when they are prime and ready for a harvest. Once harvested, these leaves are rinsed and dried thoroughly before the end product is sent for grinding. The final product is a chalk-like powder you usually consume as kratom powder. Even the capsules carry the same powder; the only difference is a better measurement.

How To Consume Kratom Powder?

You can consume kratom powder differently depending on your needs and tastes. Generally, people take Kratom as a tea by mixing the kratom powder in warm water. You can also add other ingredients to your kratom tea like honey, lemon, and ginger for a more enhanced taste. Kratom powder is used differently in capsules or DIY recipes like kratom pancakes or kratom pasta. Make sure the recipe you try is from a credible source.

What is kratom extract?

Unlike kratom powders, extracts are more concentrated. They are prepared by further processing the kratom powder to isolate the speciosa plant’s alkaloids. In kratom extracts, alkaloids are highly potent and 5-10 times stronger than a similar amount of kratom powder. Kratom extracts are available in both powder and liquid forms.

However potent, kratom extracts need extra research when it comes to purchasing because most of the extracts are processed through different methods making it hard to predict the results. So, be extra careful when you buy a kratom extract.

How to use kratom extracts?

Depending on your chosen form, kratom extracts can be used in several ways. If you’ve bought the liquid extract like a kratom energy shot, you can gulp it down. If you have chosen edibles, munch one gummy while you are on your way to the office. It is delicious and convenient.

What shall I buy– Kratom powder or kratom extract?

That’s the real question that confuses many kratom users. Fret not; you only need to follow your instincts. The selection of products depends on the purpose and effects you desire. If you need to relax during the day or need a quick energy boost, try kratom extracts, whereas if you want to unwind after a long tiring day, Green Vein Maeng Da kratom powder is best. Here you must note that Kratom extracts are more travel friendly and discreet than powders. But, the effects of powder are long-lasting and more robust.
