Kratom Varieties

There are many different types of Kratom being advertised on the internet. These include leaves, enhanced leaves, extracts, powders, resins, tinctures, and more. Here are a few of the most common Kratom varieties.

Kratom Resin

This is a concentrated form of Kratom which is created by condensing the leaf down through a cooking method and extracting the alkaloids to produce a small, tar like mass which is much stronger than the leaf itself.

Crushed Leaf Kratom

This is basically what the title implies. Crushed leaf Kratom contains all of the leaf material, stem and veins and is often used as a tea for the delivery system.

Stem and Vein

The Stem and Vein is generally removed during the grinding of the leaf to produce powder, but still contains active alkaloids, although only approximately 25% of what the other leaf material contains.

Kratom Tincture

The extracted alkaloids or Concentrated Kratom Powder is soluble in alcohol which allows for an alternative delivery system. Tincture droplets are delivered sublingual and have a strong effect.

Kratom Powder

Kratom powder is generally stronger than crushed leaves because the stem and veins of the leaf are often removed, leaving the parts of the leaf which contain the highest amount of the active alkaloids.

Kratom Extract

This generally comes in a powder form and is a concentrated form the Kratom, thus providing a stronger or enhanced effect.

Enhanced Kratom

Enhanced Kratom is often as simple as an extract being added to a regular strength powder. There are also some strains of Kratom that are overall stronger than others and these are sometimes referred to as enhanced.

Kratom Capsules

This is simply Powdered Kratom which is packed into an ingestible capsule ( Kratom Capsules ) for a more convenient delivery method, thus the name.
