In simple terms, Liquid Kratom is an extract of Kratom that has a high concentration. You can easily buy kratom extracts (liquid kratom) at certain selected stores in the US. However, as compared with powders and capsules, Liquid kratom is slightly more expensive.
The main reason for its higher cost is the fact that it is made in high-end labs. Furthermore, companies that make kratom extracts hire experts with technical skills. These experts control many different factors in the laboratory such as pressure, temperature, humidity, and light intensity.
All these complexities simply add up to the overall cost of kratom in liquid. And that is why it is slightly more expensive as compared to kratom capsules and powder.
Now you might wonder whether it is even worth it. Well, that depends on the properties that you are looking for.
If you want a concentrated extract that is easily manageable, then liquid kratom might be the perfect option.
The Making of Liquid Kratom
In this section, we will discuss the making of Kratom Liquid Extract in greater detail. Generally, you can find two types of kratom extract products in the market. These include:
- Water-based Liquid Kratom
- Alcohol-based liquid kratom
Both these types are made differently, with different components. With that, stores classify both of these varieties further into two types. These are:
- Full-spectrum extracts
As the name might imply, full-spectrum extracts feature all the components present in Kratom. This includes Mitragynine, 7-HMG, and at least 40 other alkaloids. Along with that, trace amounts of other components may also be present.
In comparison, Isolate Liquid Kratom extracts contain a fraction of the components only. For Instance, you can find pure isolates of just 7-HMG and Mitragynine alone. However, full-spectrum extracts are the more common extracts of kratom for sale in stores.
Now, without any further delay, let us see how to make kratom extract.
Kratom Tea is perhaps the simplest form of kratom extract that one can make. In this type, you simply pour some kratom powder inside a filter paper and let some hot water drain through it.
As the hot water passes through the kratom powder, it absorbs some of the components from the kratom powder. You can also carry out the same process with kratom leaves. However, that requires a longer wait-time due to a lesser surface area in contact with the water.
However, the process of making water-based or alcohol-based liquid kratom is slightly more complex.
Water and Alcohol-based Liquid Kratom
Experts make water-based liquid kratom from three main ingredients. These are:
- Kratom leaves
- Citric Acid
First, experts prepare a mixture of ethanol and water. To make water-based extracts, experts simply just use water alone.
Then, experts wash some fresh kratom leaves. In the making of liquid kratom, higher-quality leaves have the highest preference. This is because higher-quality leaves give you richer properties.
With that, an acidic substance such as citric acid is also a major requirement. This component absorbs all the constituents of kratom leaves, including the alkaloids. This goes into the mixture of ethanol and water.
Finally, experts then add the kratom leaves to the resulting mixture (preferably inside a mason jar) and shake the jar vigorously. Then, the jar is packed and placed inside a dark room for around 2 weeks.
This is the time that the components present inside the kratom leaves take to dissolve into the mixture. The resulting composition of liquid kratom would roughly depend on the composition of the kratom strains added.
Then, experts strain the liquid out of the jar to remove the solid pieces of leaves. Then, the jar is left open for a while to let some of the liquid evaporate away. This way, the concentration of the extract can be controlled.
Lastly, they test the resulting kratom extract and fill it inside tincture bottles. After that, the liquid kratom is ready to reach the stores.
Note that liquid kratom is slightly more expensive than other kratom products. So, you are not likely to find cheap kratom extracts. With that, we at ‘Green Leaf Kratom’ always suggest you buy kratom extract from well-reputed sellers only.
Due to the popularity of kratom extracts, many low-end kratom sellers try to scam new buyers. To avoid falling for their gimmicks, research kratom products yourself. This way, you will empower yourself enough to distinguish between genuine and fake products.
With that, we hope that you found this liquid kratom guide very helpful. For more information about kratom, check out the other posts in our kratom blog.
