Kratom Resin Extracts

In comparison to water-based extractions, kratom resin extractions have a much more well-rounded profile of effects. These extracts are typically performed by extracting kratom with both a polar solvent and a non-polar solvent; a simple example of this would be water and ethanol. Like the water extract, the powder is strained and the alkaloid saturated non-polar/polar solvent is left to dry.

Pros:

  • Full-spectrum of¬†effects
  • Ease¬†of use
  • Easy storage
  • High¬†potency per weight

Cons:

  • More expensive than plain leaf
  • Side-effects to potency ratio comparable to plain leaf
  • Temperature sensitive (melts in minor heat)
