How To Make Kratom Extracts At Home

There are various forms of kratom, including chewing leaves, making teas and capsules. Extracts are another form of kratom that has increased in popularity over the last several years. They are a concentrated form of kratom alkaloids that are distilled from powder or leaves. Because kratom extracts can be pricier and harder to find many kratom users are wondering how to make kratom extracts at home.

What Are Kratom Extracts?

Kratom extracts are just a concentrated form of kratom. They tend to be more potent than other forms of kratom, which means you can take a smaller amount. There are 3 primary forms of kratom extracts, which include:

  • Extract Powder – concentrated from powder
  • Extract Tincture – a liquid form of kratom extract
  • Extract Resin – Thicker kratom extract paste

Why Make Kratom Extract at Home?

Since there is a lot that goes into making an extract, manufacturers typically charge more for kratom extract products. Many vendors choose not to offer extracts because of the additional investment that it calls for. Proper kratom testing is vital to ensure that the products the vendors are receiving to sell to customers are unadulterated. 

Without this rigorous testing, vendors run the risk of getting imported kratom that is contaminated and the need to discard loads of products. This can lead to large sums of money being lost and is the reason why many kratom vendors do not offer extracts. 

The demand for tinctures and extracts is not nearly as high as it is for raw kratom powder. With the legalities that surround kratom, powder tends to be the simplest option for vendors to carry. In addition, many kratom users are not highly satisfied with the extracts that are offered through vendors. 

Since extracts are not widely carried, you are likely to only find the most popular strains. If you are looking to try a less common strain, then your options are to try your hand at making your own extracts from home. 

When deciding to make your own kratom extracts you can use your favorite strains and still get your products from the vendors that you love. Plus, you can make as much or as little as you want. Tincture extracts tend to be the easiest to make at home out of the extracts that are available on the market.

How to Make Kratom Extract?

Kratom extracts can be water or alcohol-based. Both will provide you with optimal results that can be done right at home. An alcohol base tends to be more effective as it is preserving alkaloids for extended periods of time. 

Kratom Extract Ingredients

You will want to have all of your ingredients together before starting your extract. This will ensure you do not have a pause in the middle of making your extract look for an ingredient that is needed. 

Gather the following ingredients:

  • Kratom powder or leaves
  • If making alcohol-based extracts you will need to use drinking alcohol.  You can opt for 40% concentrated alcohol, such as vodka or rum. You cannot use rubbing alcohol, as it contains harmful chemicals that will create toxic fumes and is harmful when consumed. 
  • Citric acid or lemon juice helps with the efficiency of the extraction process. When making an alcohol-based extract it will help stabilize it and slow down the evaporation rate. 
  • Digital scales to help you accurately measure your kratom powder. This will allow you to determine how potent your extract is. 
  • Measuring cup for measuring out liquids.
  • pH strips to determine the acidity level of your kratom extract. 
  • Tinted bottles to store your extract in. These bottles will protect the extract from light and preserve the alkaloids. For those who plan to use kratom extract long-term, it may be a good investment to get bottles that have droppers. 
  • Mason jars
  • Fine strainer or cheesecloth to help with separation.

Steps for Making Kratom Extract

  1. Begin by choosing the strain of kratom powder or leaves that you want to use. The effects of the extract will highly depend on the strain that you choose. 
  2. Measure your kratom – if you are looking for an amount that will fit into a tincture bottle, you will want to use 4 to 5 ounces or 100 to 150 grams of kratom. Once you have gone through the process several times you will be able to experiment with various amounts.
  3. Mix kratom and alcohol – Extracts that are alcohol-based will last longer than water-based extracts. They have the benefit of having preservative components. However, you can use distilled water to make your extracts as well if you choose.
  4. Place the kratom in the jar and make sure that it does not take up more than half of the jar. Then submerge with alcohol or water. You will want to use a 1:4 ratio when choosing kratom and alcohol. Therefore, every 4 ounces of kratom will require 1 liter of alcohol. Make sure you mix well. 
  5. Combine the citric acid with the kratom and alcohol mixture, as it will help with the extraction process while preserving alkaloids. Citric acid is not Vitamin C, as it is a weak liquid organic acid that can be found at your local grocery store. Alternatively, you could also use freshly squeezed lemon juice. 
  6. Use the pH strips to check the acidity. You will want it to reach pH4. Once it hits this level you can stop adding citric acid. If you add too much it will result in it being too acidic, which may cause canker sores in the mouth. 
  7. Add glycerin to your mixture. There is no recommended amount, as this step is optional. It simply helps break down byproducts of oils and fats. Ensure that the end result maintains the 1:4 ratio. Glycerin can be a great alternative for those who cannot consume alcohol or have a health condition that requires them to consume very little sugar. 
  8. Once the mixture is in a sealed jar you will want to shake it vigorously. Do this until the liquid has a smooth consistency. Once this is done, choose one of the following methods to proceed with:
    1. Place the jar in a cool dark area for a week.
    2. Place the jar in a pot of hot water and let sit for about an hour. Repeat this process two more times. 
    3. Place the jars in a crockpot and cook them on low for about 3 days. 
  9. Once your mixture has been set for the allotted amount of time, you will want to use your strainer or cheesecloth to efficiently strain your liquid. Any remaining leaves or particles will need to be thrown away. 
  10. Put the liquid back into the jars and leave it to evaporate. One-half of the liquid is evaporated, you can pour your tincture into bottles. Be patient, because this part of the process will take time.

Water-Based Extract

While water-based extracts are not as potent as alcohol-based, they are still a viable option. To make a water-based extract you will use raw kratom leaves. They can either be dissolved in a mixture of alcohol and water or with water alone. You will want to add some citric acid to help preserve your tincture. You can follow the steps we listed above to make your water-based extract. 

Once shaking the mixture, it will need to be left in a dark place for 1 to 2 weeks to allow it to steep. You will strain it and allow half of the liquid to evaporate. You can see the process is identical to that of an alcohol-based extract. Glycerin can be added to help balance out the acidity.

Tea Extract

Tea is one of the simplest forms of kratom extract. It is simply steeped in water to make a tea that you can drink. It does not require a lot of preparation and you can access it pretty much whenever you want. Keep in mind that kratom tea is not very concentrated unless it is left too steep for a long time. You will not want to make your water too hot, as this will affect the alkaloids.

Resin is a semi-solid form of kratom, rather than a liquid. Because they do not contain a lot of liquid, they are highly concentrated. However, they are somewhat difficult to make but are faster to make than water-based extracts. 

Start by adding enough water to your kratom powder just to cover it. Make sure to mix it well and add in lemon or lime juice. Once it has steeped overnight, you will want to freeze the mixture solid. Add the frozen kratom to boiling water, add lemon or lime juice, and allow it to simmer until at least a quarter of the water is gone. 

Cool and strain the mixture, and evaporate half of the strained water. Simmer the wet powder with water and juice once again. You will want to simmer and filter the powder at least one more time. Ensure that the water is saturated and add it to an oven-safe dish. You will not want it to be any more than 3 inches deep. Cook at 150 to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the water evaporates there will be a thick resin left behind.
