I recently saw a vendor advertising that he was selling Kratom that was Mitragynine % of 1.6-1.8% for $100.00 a Kg.

There was another vendor that claimed all there Kratom was 1.7 and above.

I was curious what is the average Percentage of Mitragynine of Kratom on the market. Also if higher Mitragynine is always better.

In a chat board someone said that you can't just look at the Mitragynine level.

There has been so much talk about this and there will be with the Kratom Consumer Protection Act coming to more states.
In the Atlanta Bill It says in part.for the identification of a standard level of kratom alkaloids and establish
4 recommended dosages; to provide for the prohibition of access to kratom to persons under 18
5 years of age; to provide for package labeling requirements;
We do not really know.
Just like Cannabis which is still being studied has been found to have so many Terpenes at work beyond CBD and THC.
We will eventually know more as science develops.
I hope that helps.
We always provide top quality organic kratom at reasonable prices.
God bless and have a great day.

The vendor I use for super strains has this to say:
"...our 6 Super strains, all of which contain 7-15% higher alkaloid content when compared to our regular strains.

Also this:
"All of our products are tested for various safety and quality parameters, including the alkaloid (mitragynine) content, which we always ensure meets or exceeds industry standards."

So now that this issue has been brought up, I am not sure if the alkaloid content refers to mitragygnine levels or all alkaloids. Also not sure if the 7 - 15% is the actual percentage or the percentage "higher" that the industry standard. hmmmm?

I will follow up with them and let you know...they usually respond quite readily.

I feel like my question wasn't answered. So I went to Reddit.

The consensus was that
"Mitragynine content per gram of dried leaf varies from 12-21mg on average (1.2-2.1%). 7-ohm varies from 100-500mcg per gram of dry leaf."

Another post said
"Most decent kratom is around 1.3% - 1.7% mirtagynine and .3-.5 7-hydroxy-mitragynine"

Phooey! I’m late! My guess was average 1.7%!

What would I have won?!

off of PDO's site:



"Average Kratom Mitragynine is 1.5%, good Kratom Mitragynine is 1.8% and stellar Mitragynine is 2%"

here is the response from one of my vendors regarding percentages of alkaloids.

There are many phytochemicals found in kratom trees with over 40 structurally related alkaloids.The main alkaloid components in kratom leaves, mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, affect potency and are the primary alkaloids we test for.

The industry standard for mitragynine is 0.9-1.6% for regular strains whereas the industry standard for super strains is 1.7-2.2%.

While there is an industry standard for alkaloid content in kratom, we have set our own standard of 1.4-1.6% mitragynine for our regular strains. Our super strains, small batches harvested from the most mature kratom leaves, have a 7-15% higher alkaloid content.
