FORMS OF KRATOM (POWDER, CAPSULES, EXTRACT)
Kratom is available in different forms some of which are much easier to dose than others.
Kratom capsules are by far the most convenient to use. Kratom has a very bitter taste and hence by having the powder inside a capsule, the user is saved from its unpleasant taste. Capsules also provide accurate doses. You will be able to know exactly how much Kratom you are taking and this will improve the results you are looking for!
Kratom capsules are easily available in the market. You must, however, pay attention to who you are buying the capsules from and the contents inside the capsules. That’s because some vendors mix Kratom powder with other herbs and chemicals and put them inside the capsules. This compromises both the potency and safety of the compound.
Of course, you can decide to make your own capsules. All you need is to get high-quality Kratom powder, get either veggie or gelatin capsules and fill them with the powder. This way, you have control over how much Kratom is in each capsule and its purity.
You can also use Kratom in form of raw powder. This powder is made from Kratom leaves that have been dried and crashed.
The most popular way of using Kratom raw powder is through a method referred to as Toss n’ Wash. It involves putting the powder in your mouth, taking some water and swirling it around before swallowing. This method gets Kratom in your system much faster since there is no digestion of capsules taking place here.
You can also use the Kratom powder by adding it to yogurt or a protein shake. Some people make Kratom tea using the powder.
The problem with raw Kratom powder is that measuring the dose may become difficult and wastage is also quite common.
Kratom leaves can be boiled in water, citrus liquid or alcohol to make extracts. You must be careful while preparing these extracts because, at high temperatures, you might kill the alkaloids that give Kratom its potency.
