I'm not getting to good of results and because i wanted to try something different. Honestly I don't feel much from it anyway except a fear of taking to much plain leaf with it.

If you are getting good results with regular plain leaf powder, WHY would you want to take this extract ...especially with all the uncertainties regarding dose and tolerance etc.
Laurie has indicated that she DOES use it BUT clearly she know WHY, and she only ues it under specific circumstances.
Ask yourself WHY? I mean WHY do you want to complicate your life?

The only thing wrong with extracts is it increases tolerance. I’ve found a way to utilize it when needed, then return to regular powder.
You can measure everything as precisely as you wish. It’s still a plant.
Use extracts with care. Being in recovery, I tend to use them minimally for EMERGENCIES like walking to the car.
With 2 preemies, you’ll have emergencies for the next 50 YEARS. God Willing.
BTW that extract is prolly ~40% alkaloids, so around 5-20% mitragynine. Probably on the lower end. The old 40% used to be ~8% mitragynine. My guess is it is probably around 4X as potent as PL unless it has been purified in some way (like white or gold colored). 10X at best but I doubt it. I would just cut out a gram of leaf and add a half gram of the extract. Not if it is white or yellow/gold though. That is much more potent, like truly 30-50X.
A gram of extract added to 50 gr of leaf would not really enhance it noticeably. Try adding it to 9-19 grams of leaf. Be sure it is mixed real well. That would add .4-.8% mitragynine to your total and turn your 1.6 leaf into 2-2.5% leaf.
Or you could prolly just use 10% mitragynine to make the math easy. I wanted to make some enhanced leaf but I think the extract I have is way too resinous. I think it would turn into a blob in my coffee grinder but maybe it would not get hot enough. I think I will try whizzing up just some of that extract. I have a gram of near pure mitragynine as well. I was thinking 10 gr brown extract, 1 gr white, and 39 gr PL and maybe powdered cats claw if I could find it. Then just use a gram of it. I need the perfect leaf though.

When you are referring to <strong>.4gms of extract</strong> that is the weight of the powder you are measuring?
