TOPIC: Kratom Extraction Yields

Kratom Extraction Yields 11 months 3 weeks ago #39681

This is all speculation, I tend to believe that the effects are based on the quality of leaf going into into the extraction..
I’ve made a very energetic tincture from a green vein , another time.. different green strain and gave sedation...
the one that gave energy had those effects in plain leaf form, and the sedating had those qualities in the plain leaf form . Everything effecting everything ... the process I believe has a big part in the final product but more importantly it’s the quality of the leaf being used . Just from my limited experience...

Extracting using alcohol according to this article is probably gives the poorest purity of Mitragyna from kratom.
Here’s a link that shows how to get up to 99% pure crystals but it would take a chemist and a lab to get results.

JdKrat, I am not sure why some of of the pleasant qualities of Kratom is lost when it goes through the process of reduction while making an extract.

I have tried many vendors extracts. I have found they are all missing good qualities of plain leaf kratom. It is a totally different vibe and for the most part not better.

Most of the extracts are crystal. They are black or gold colored. They are between 20x - 125x. I can tell you the experience isn’t even twice as good as plain leaf. The money would be better spent on a quality red or green strain.

I never buy tinctures or anything liquid. I can’t really recommend ordering kratom extracts.

They can be used to boost pain control but, your tolerance will skyrocket. In the end it’s not really worth it.

Always take a much smaller dose of extracts than you would plain leaf. Milligrams not Grams.

Good Luck...

I wonder why extracts does not give you the full spectrum feelings of awesomeness? It would have to be one of two things, It may be impossible to get 100% alkaloid extraction out of the plant matter, or the extraction process using heat, water, alcohol , acids is degrading/damaging the alkaloids. Hell, it could even be both things.

I would agree with you. Every time I take a kratom extract I do not feel the same quality of effects that I do when I take plain leaf.
Also when it comes to Ultra enhanced Kratom I have found for me the experience does not have the same good vibes a high quality Plain Leaf does.

I get my best Kratom results in the morning. My first Kratom of the day is my best. So, I try to mix 2-4 strains/colors and follow that with Turmeric.

Morning example 30% White, 50% Green, 20% Red. or White 20%, Green 40%,Green 40%, Sometimes its White 25%,Green 25% ,Green 25%, Red 25%....

I try to mix different strains as well as different vendors. By doing this I feel I keep my Kratom experiences Fresh and Effective.

Do you enjoy mixing Strains/Colors ?

4:1 or 4x you started with 250 grams and reduced it to 60 grams. It is roughly 4 been reduced by 4 times.So in theory you can take 25% of your normal dose to equal this Kratom before you reduced it.


Let us know how the experience differs from regular leaf. Or any other observations you would like to share.

Thanks...

If that's the case. If I yield 60 grams from 250 grams what percentage is that?

Yield Update: I let the resin sit for a few days to completely dry out and I measured it at 30g so I made a 3x extract which is closer to my goal. (Trying to get a 6x). I put it in a small coffee grinder and it turned into some nice looking gold powder. I see vendors selling a 25x extract, I'm really doubting it's a true 25x. That would mean starting with 100g plain leaf and only getting back 4g.

Topic moved, thanks for the reminder on that good suggestion.

I don’t do extractions and will let y’all exchange dialogue freely.

Pardon me, enjoy!
