Some people are curious as to what is different about kratom resin. It’s a natural herb that is not available with every vendor; only with those who sell high quality have the resin with them. Kratom resin is a dark black lump which seems like a dried brick of tar. New users must know that there is a high concentration of the compounds in it that makes it a higher quality product.
How Is Resin Created?
It is in the formation of extracts which are prepared by boiling the leaves of the Mitragyna Speciosa plant. The leaves of bigger size are selected for this purpose as they have more quantity of content in them, making extracts stronger than the powdered form or capsules of kratom. Active chemicals are extracted from the plant by boiling the leaves and after the removal of alkaloids; a solid material is left behind that is known as resin. This resin can either be grounded into powder to make extracts, or liquid tincture is made from them.
Potency Of The Resin
The names given to the resin are 5x, 8x, 10x or similar. These define the strength of the product. The number here defines that 1 gram of extract was made from that number of leaves. For example, 10x extract would mean that 10 grams of leaves were processed to convert into 1 gram, but this does not mean that it is ten times stronger in regards to alkaloid content.
Full Spectrum Extract
This does not necessarily mean that the larger number is better than, the smaller one. More than 20x resin is not considered to have the full spectrum alkaloids in the plant of Mitragyna Speciosa. The main concern is to obtain the optimum balance between the active compounds present in the plant so that the full effects of the herb can be availed. All of the alkaloids have their representation in the final extract to achieve Full Spectrum Extract.
