Are you new to kratom? Perhaps you have used kratom for a while but are looking to change things up. The most popular form of kratom is powder, but it also comes in capsules, extracts, and teas. Let’s talk about the different forms of kratom use.
Understanding Different Kratom Strains
Kratom originates from Southeast Asia and has been used for centuries in their culture. The kratom plant has become increasingly popular across the nation for the wellness support that it offers.
Kratom can be characterized by its vein color, as well as the area in which it originates. Naturally, the Mitragyna Speciosa trees produce leaves that have veins running through them. These veins may be red vein kratom, green vein kratom, or white vein kratom. Yellow vein kratom is the product of red strain kratom that has gone through a specialized fermentation and drying process. The different strains of kratom can be recognized by their vein color. So, Red Bali would come from red kratom that originates from Bali. It makes it easy for the user to identify which type of kratom they are using.
While these characteristics are true most of the time, it is not always the case. Take, for example, White Maeng Da kratom. While this strain comes from white kratom, Maeng Da is not a place. In this instance, it is known due to local terms that characterize the type of kratom it is.
Kratom is an herb that can be found in the forest of Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Papua New Guinea. While it is popular in the United States it does not naturally grow here. So, high-quality kratom strains should always be sourced from a Southeast Asia country.
Forms Of Kratom
The form of kratom you take will all come down to personal preference. Here are just some of the different forms of kratom that you may want to explore.
Tinctures are commonly made from powders. They will come in a highly concentrated form, which means you will take less of a tincture than you would a powder or capsule. Tinctures are kratom extract that will be diluted with a liquid base.
There are different types of tinctures, which include full spectrum. Full-spectrum tinctures will contain the alkaloids and compounds that are naturally found in kratom. You can make your own tinctures to include the types of compounds and alkaloids that you desire. To learn how to make your own DIY kratom tincture check out our blog. If you buy a tincture from a vendor, they will more than likely come in a bottle with a dropper to make it easy to measure your dose of kratom.
With any new substance, you should always consult with your general practitioner before use.
Kratom capsules are created by taking the powder and filling capsules. A lot of kratom users prefer to take capsules because it is already measured out in dosages and it is a convenient way to take kratom. However, you may find yourself taking several capsules depending on the dose that you are on. Just be certain that you consult your general practitioner before starting any new type of substance.
The powder is created once the kratom leaves have been harvested and then crushed. The powder can then be sold to vendors as is or used to make a number of other products including teas, tinctures, and capsules. Powder tends to be one of the most economical ways to take kratom.
