The kratom vendors form the liquid kratom by using the kratom extracts. The kratom leaves gets used in the making of the concentrated liquid extract. Additives are also added to form the liquid kratom. The suppliers have to keep in view the type of the kratom used and the final potency of the liquid kratom. The liquid kratom is more effective as compared to the kratom leaves. This is because the formation of liquid kratom requires many kratom leaves itself. The people can see the strength of the liquid kratom as 2x, 5x and 10x. The more the strength is, the more number of leaves gets used in the process.
Types of Liquid Kratom
The suppliers form the liquid kratom extracts by using the kratom leaves or powder. This process requires a lot of energy as the leaves are not grinded only. There are two types of liquid extracts. One of them is the standard liquid extract. This contains only one type of strains and some specific alkaloids. Yet the other type is full spectrum tincture. This contains a mixture of two or more strains. It also have a variation in adding up the alkaloids. The people determine the strength of the liquid extracts by the numbers. These numbers depict the number of leaves that went into the making of the extracts. For example, a 20x (15 ml) bottle contains 20 grams of the kratom leaves in every milliliter.
Kratom tincture is another form of the liquid extracts of kratom. The process used to make the kratom tincture is only different from that of liquid extracts. At first, the people place the kratom leaves in the airtight containers. Then, they have to pour alcohol into it. The amount of alcohol depends on the freshness of the kratom leaves. If they are fresh then, the suppliers use a 1:1 ratio. This means that one ounce of kratom for every one ounce of alcohol. If the leaves get dried then, the suppliers used 1:4 ratio. Afterwards, the jar gets sealed and then left for at least six or more weeks. This lets the alcohol to absorb the components of the kratom. The final liquid is then collected in a dropper. This kratom tincture is more effective as compared to the kratom powder.
Another form is kratom shots. Kratom shots act as energy drinks. They boost the energy levels of a person. It causes their body and mind to get more activated. Yet there are the kratom concentrations with unusual amounts of mitragynine. A study from the Journal of Medical Toxicology proves this. It says that there are 23.8 micrograms of mitragynine in natural kratom leaves. Whereas the liquid kratom shot have 190.7 nanograms of the mitragynine. A nanogram equals 1000 micrograms. According to this, there is eight times more o mitragynine in the kratom shot. This study also mentions that this large amount of the alkaloid can lead to the addiction. Thus, FDA has not made it legal for use. Many of the suppliers do not give information about the ingredients of kratom shots. This is why the users suspect that the consumption of kratom shots is risky for them.
