Kratom extracts are very important especially if you are making a new UEI. You may want to use something that is 20x kratom extract depending upon the kind of UEI that you are going to make in order for you to invent the best kind. These may be more expensive because of their higher potency that has been boiled down in order to create that extract. This also makes it possible to use a small dosage but otherwise very effective one.

There has been a lot of speculation whether these extracts can be fun to use and stronger than the leaves, while some may think that it poses a danger to its user. This is one of the reasons why UEI are not recommended to be used every day because it causes the side effects to appear after using higher doses and these side effects can also be stronger than the typical effects that a user may experience with a leaf.

How are Kratom Extracts made?
It is fairly simple. You just crush down a leaf of a strain and you boil it down. Let the water evaporate and you now have a kratom extract. The purpose of this process is to extract the alkaloid content which is the main reason as to why a person experiences its many benefits. After the water content has been removed or filtered, what remains is a thick green paste with the highest concentration of alkaloid that you can extract from that leaf that you just crushed and boiled. You have to make sure that you preserve as much alkaloid content as you can as possible because that is the main goal of getting an extraction. Mitragynine, 7-hydroxymitragynine, and mitraphylline are the three main kind of alkaloid that needs to be equally present in the extract. An extract that contains a full range of alkaloid is what you call a Full Spectrum Kratom or Full Spectrum Tinctures.

How do you Grade an Extract?
In grading a kratom extract, it is common practice that you put an “X” right after a number like 1x, 15x, and so on. Some people may think that it means that an extract is 15 times more potent or powerful than the original strain. But what it really means is that it measures 15 grams of powdered or crushed leaves, and then it has been reduced to 1 gram. Just because it has an “X” after a number, doesn’t mean that it has 15 times more alkaloid than the simple strain of leaf.

How to use Kratom extracts
Remember that extracts are more expensive than the non-concentrated products like the leaf. In using it, make sure that what you are using is just enough because improper usage can be dangerous and the exact tolerance of a person from using excessive amounts of extracts is unknown but is obviously bad. In order for you to know which dosage is good enough for you, you must start with the lowest dosage and make your way up if you think it is not enough.

Side effects are prevalent especially to those who use high amounts of kratom extracts. You must make sure that what you have is enough and that you get yourself familiarized with the different grades especially if you are experienced enough when it comes to kratom.
