Kratom Powder

Color


You’ve likely heard, seen or even experienced buying different ‘strains’ of kratom, known primarily by their colors (red, yellow, white, green, and so on). But to your surprise, you may have opened your product to see a greenish powder that wasn’t red or white at all. So what gives?

Kratom strains are named by the color of the veins on the leaves it is harvested and processed from. These color-coded names define the amount, concentration, and types of alkaloids present in the powder (these are the compounds that elicit kratom’s effects when consumed). 

However, the difference in the color of the actual powder when processed is minimal. All kratom powder will be some shade of green, with hues of brown, yellow or red mixed in. White kratom tends to be a lighter color green, but not always.


Aroma

What does kratom smell like? 

The aroma of kratom powder is typically mild and is usually described as an earthy botanical smell. Similar to leaves or fresh cut grass. 


Flavor / Taste

Kratom tastes much like it smells. Organic, earthy and leafy/botanical. With one major difference. Although kratom may smell mild, its taste is anything but. This is normal and a reflection of the alkaloid potency of the preparation. For many consumers, the bitterness is a bit much, requiring that the powder is mixed with or prepared in drinks, food or even in capsules where it is better tolerated.

That said, some individuals actually enjoy the bitterness. If you are a fan of stout bitter coffee or tea, you may find that it’s not all that unpleasant.






Consistency 

A good kratom powder preparation will be consistent and free from any large pieces of leaves. Our premium kratom powder is artfully prepared and organically processed, ensuring each bag is a consistent, ultra-fine powder, perfect for a wide range of uses. 


Potency

Kratom powder is the most potent formulation of kratom on the market. However, the potency of each blend depends on the region it was grown in, processing methods, and strain or ‘vein’ of kratom used to make the powder.

The potency is measured by the type of vein/strain, which is known to offer certain qualities and concentrations of alkaloids. 


Alkaloid Content 

Kratom powder contains over 20 known active compounds. But just two of these are what is considered responsible for eliciting its desired effects: mitragynine and 7-a- hydroxymitragynine.

These and other alkaloids have been found in research to interact with the body’s natural opioid receptors, acting via this and other physiological mechanisms to produce desired effects.


What are the Effects of Kratom Powder?

Kratom powder is rich in naturally occurring alkaloids found in the leaves of the Southeast Asian tree it comes from. These alkaloids are powerful compounds, capable of eliciting a myriad of desirable effects in the body.

Both Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitraynine are biologically and physiologically active when consumed. 

Although more research is needed, both indigenous natives of Malaysia and Thailand, as well as modern-day consumers, report taking kratom tea to ward off fatigue, improve mood and energy levels, increase productivity, soothe strained muscles and combat pain.

Others note euphoria, sedation, or stimulation depending on the strain and dose. Again, this is subjective based on user experience and their unique biology.

Some studies have suggested the effects of the plant can be felt within 5-15 minutes, while remaining active for the following 2-5 hours.

However, individual results may vary, and you should always consult with your doctor prior to starting any new supplement or dietary change.


What are the Benefits of Kratom Powder?

Versatility 

As a powder, kratom is highly versatile. Kratom powder can be prepared and combined with a broad range of recipes, from food to drink combinations. This makes powder a favored way to enjoy kratom. From teas and smoothies, to desert dishes and more, the opportunities are endless.

Affordability

Kratom powder isn’t just the most readily available way to purchase kratom, it is also among the most affordable. Powder requires no further processing or added materials (such as with capsules), and this ‘bare bones’ approach to consumption results in reduced costs for the consumer.

What are the Different Types of Kratom Powder?

Kratom powder is named by the region it comes from, the ‘vein’ or strain, or both. Each blend has its own unique concentration of active compounds and potency, as well as effects when consumed.
