Does anyone have experience making your own tincture? Is it preferable to use powdered or crushed leaf for the alcohol extraction? I could see the powder possibly offering greater surface area for the alcohol, but I could also see the powder tending to form clumps that might reduce contact with the solvent.

I have tried multiple vendors' tinctures, but there is only one that I like. I have noticed that it has a much stronger alcohol burn, and I suspect they are extracting with a higher proof alcohol like Everclear. Other tinctures I've tried have more of a water and glycerin taste, and those I find thoroughly unimpressive. To me, if the tincture doesn't burn then it's probably no good.

The only Tincture I've tried is from Kratom Herbs from Florida. There Tincture is potent & will put you to sleep. But to me Tincture is just a waste. Not many people use Tinctures because it's so expensive & you have to find a good Vendor to buy from.

If anybody has any Questions about Kratom please private message me or make a Post & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can usually within 24 hours if not sooner. I'm usually on really late at night Between Midnight & 5am.

The burn is not the kratom, but the solvent. I have made extracts and tinctures many times, feel free to shoot me a PM if you have any questions or would like try some of my extracts

Look for bitter, bitter is the taste of many good alkaloids
