What are kratom extracts?

Kratom extracts offer a new alternative to the regular powdered kratom in pills or to make tea. What exactly are these extracts and how are they made? Read more to find out!

What is kratom?

Kratom is a substance from the Mitragyna speciosa: a tropical, evergreen tree that grows in Southeast Asia. It belongs to the Rubiaceae plants family, in addition to several other plants, including Coffea (coffee), Kina and many others. Kratom leaves are often processed into powder, tablets or extracts. Kratom acts as a stimulant in small doses. In larger quantities, it produces strong sedative effects, similar to those of opium.

Mitragynine is a psychoactive alkaloid, that interacts with the brain in a similar way as other alkaloids, such as morphine and nicotine. It actually works by fooling receptors in the brain, that usually respond to opioids. Traditionally kratom has been used by chewing the leaves to reduce exhaustion and to boost the productivity. The leaves can also be soaked and brewed into tea, and would also heal wounds or act as a local anesthetic. By the end of the 19th century, kratom would also have been used in the treatment of opiate addiction.

Kratom extracts

Kratom extracts are powerful concentrated forms of kratom. They are often made by brewing pulverized or crushed kratom leaves to evaporate as much as water as possible, and to produce a thick, dark paste containing many active ingredients of the plant. These extracts can be further processed into powder, a liquid tincture or oil, or in a solid form as a compact ersin. Just like any other plant extract, the goal of making kratom extracts is to produce a refined product that retains the main ingredients of the plant, and can be consumed in smaller and more powerful doses.

The effects

A high-quality kratom extract produces similar effects as regular kratom powder, but in a much smaller dose. Small doses of kratom produces uplifting, stimulating effects similar to those of amphetamine. Larger amounts of kratom, on the other hand, produces calming effects, similar to those of opium and narcotics.
