Kratom resin is a thick and sticky form of the plant Mitragyna speciosa. This form is the processed and more concentrated form of the product. The most popular kratom extracts are its powder form and the powder put into capsules. However, kratom resin should also be on your radar and here’s why we think so.
Kratom resin are the best alkaloids from the plant that is developed into a thick compound. The high levels of alkaloids give it a darker, deep brown colour. No matter what strain is used, the colour of the resin is a similar brown. It is more versatile than other forms of kratom. The process of developing kratom resin is slightly different than that of other products.
Mitragyna speciosa plants are grown in the humid climates of Southeast Asia. The leaves are evergreen for all of the different kratom strains. The strains include red vein, yellow vein, and green vein kratom. The leaves are harvested throughout the year by farmers who carefully trim them off of the branch. This process needs to be done with care so that the branches are not damaged. Farmers then sort through the leaves to select the best ones that are not damaged and have no impurities. The leaves are then washed and dried. The washing process ensures that all debris and dirt is washed off of the product so that customers get the best quality kratom. Once completely dry, the leaves are put into industrial style grinders and this converts them into a powdered form. It is from the kratom powder that the resin is produced.
The process for creating kratom resin requires more steps than powder or capsules but comes from the same source. Here is a step-by-step process of how kratom resin is produced:
- Kratom powder, water, and a few natural tinctures are mixed together.
- The mixture is left to steep for a few hours and frozen in large batches.
- The frozen batches are placed into large vats and boiled at a high temperature.
- A technical baking process that concentrates the mixture.
- High temperatures turn the mixture into a thick and sticky resin.
- The resin is securely packaged into airtight containers.
- The final product is sold online or at a reputable kratom store.
Ultimately, it is a personal preference when choosing to buy kratom powder, resin, or capsules. For those who are first-time buyers, consider trying a variety of different products and strains to see which is best suited to your taste and lifestyle. Another factor when deciding is cost. Kratom powder is less expensive than resins because the processing stage is shorter, requiring less manpower to develop the final product. Be sure to only buy kratom from reputable vendors and products that are properly sealed. Read reviews of companies before buying online for quality assurance of each product you buy.
