Kratom Extracts vs. Enhanced Kratom: What’s The Difference?

Share this post: twitterfacebookpinterest Whatsapp

Kratom users who have been enjoying our plain leaf kratom powders for a while might be wondering if there’s a way to step up their experience with the strongest kratom strains. That’s where our all-natural enhanced kratom and kratom extracts come in! To help you navigate your kratom journey, our team has put together a guide to help you learn more about what enhanced kratom is and how it differs from kratom extracts.

What Is Enhanced Kratom?

To make enhanced kratom, we begin with the most potent fresh kratom varieties —like our Indo kratom varieties, Maeng Da, and Bali kratom — that are harvested at the peak point of maturity and dried using techniques that maximize the leaves’ natural alkaloids. After powdering, we add the indole alkaloids, Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine, to every 25 grams of plain leaf powder to boost the leaves’ natural alkaloid levels.

Compared with other enhanced kratom products, our enhanced kratom varieties are especially popular with customers because we add 1,500mg of ultra-pure alkaloids to each 25mg of powder. This is a full 20% more than the 1,250mg added by other companies — giving you the best value for your purchase.

What Is Kratom Extract?

Now that we’ve explained, “What is enhanced kratom?” let’s take a look at our kratom extracts. The process for creating our kratom extracts starts the same way as all of our other kratom products: Our harvesters select the finest kratom leaves from Southeast Asia, dry them according to best practice techniques, and grind them down to a sugar-like consistency.

We then take large quantities of this regular kratom powder — with just a tiny hint of ethanol added in to help better extract the plant’s natural properties — and boil the plant matter down to a paste. This paste is then refined, air-dried, and powdered again to create our premium, silky-fine kratom extract varieties.

Understanding the Potency of Extracts

Explaining what the potency of enhanced kratom is can be easier than explaining the potency of an extract — simply because it’s easier to measure out the additional alkaloids added to enhanced kratom than it is to determine the actual aroma that an extract product will have at the end of the process.

The two extracts that we sell at Kratora are a 25x kratom powder extract and a 50x kratom extract, which means that 25 grams of kratom powder and 50 grams of powder, respectively, have been concentrated down into 1 gram of kratom extract. However, this does not mean that the final extract is 25 or 50 times as potent as the same amount of plain powder — our customers find that the actual increase in potency is more in the range of five to ten times the strength of regular kratom leaf powder.

Using Enhanced Kratom and Kratom Extracts

Knowing what enhanced kratom is still leaves the question: how do you use your enhanced kratom effectively? While everyone is different, kratom enthusiasts usually add a little of the enhanced powder or extract to their regular powder to give it a boost and help their premium powders stretch a little further.

Whereas kratom extract gives an overall boost to the aroma of your blend, enhanced kratom gives a specific boost to the main alkaloids Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine along with their respective pharmacological properties. Every batch of our kratom (including extracts and enhanced kratom) is lab-tested to ensure each product is pure, safe, and that alkaloid levels do not exceed the limits established by the Kratom Consumer Protection Act.

Try the Strongest Kratom Strains First

For some people, adding what is known as enhanced kratom to their favorite blends enhances their aromatic experience. For others, however, starting with the most naturally potent kratom strains is a slower, more balanced start to their kratom experience. Currently, we have an extensive range of kratom varieties and kratom alternative products to choose from that can be sorted by their most notable fragrance:


Within each category, you can click on the kratom products listed to see which ones have an especially “strong” or “complex” aroma. However, we often find that the people who are looking for enhanced kratom and what it offers are usually looking for the strongest kratom strains for energy or pain relief.


Differences between Enhanced Kratom and Strong Kratom Strains

In contrast to an extract or an enhanced powder, you can use our strongest kratom strains by themselves or mix them in with a more basic variety for a mild lift in fragrance.

How to Prevent a Buildup of Tolerance

Before asking what enhanced kratom is and whether it could be a good choice for you, make sure you are taking steps to prevent a buildup of tolerance with your plain leaf powders. These are some of the most frequently cited techniques for preventing or reversing tolerance:

  1. Use the minimum amount necessary for the aroma that you need.
  2. Take a break from kratom every few days to “reset” your tolerance threshold.
  3. Switch between different strains to prevent tolerance from increasing quickly.
  4. Use some stem-and-vein kratom and our alternative products from time-to-time to mix things up.
