Kratom oil is another type of extracted kratom. Some people and vendors claim that this variety is more potent than any kratom extract available in the market.
How accurate are these claims? Find out more in the following sections.
The chemical components of a plant determine the solvent of extraction. Essential elements of some plants are extractable using ethanol. Other plants’ essential elements are obtainable using water.
In most essential oils, ethanol is the best solvent for extracting essential elements. Kratom is one of these plants where ethanol can work.
The best extraction method is steam distillation. The oil is extracted using steam and water doesn’t touch any of the kratom leaves being extracted.
This method extracts a whole spectrum of alkaloids in the leaves. As a result, the oil obtained is more potent than other extracts.
Since this oil is more potent than other extracts, one drop is enough for you to feel the effect. Two drops are considered high. The taste is bitterer than the powder.
The price starts at $12 for a 15-ml bottle.
You can buy the oil from reputable vendors online. This oil is also available in head shops or vaping essential stores.
Why is this oil rare? The process of distillation takes hours to extract a 15-ml bottle of oil.
Could you use this oil topically like lavender and other essential oils? Well, yes.
Topical application may include treating stomach ache or joint pains. However, you may not experience the same effect as you would when you take it orally.
Another topical application is neuropathy. The oil, kratom powder, and other herbs are combined to form a salve.
You can use this salve to massage the injured body parts healing from a traumatic accident.
Here is a simple recipe for a pain-free salve
You’ll need kitchen weighing scale, double oiler, spatula, rubber gloves, label, jar (for the beeswax), cheesecloth, and small containers with a lid.
First, combine kratom powder and St. John’s Wort essential oil. The powder should become sticky, enough for you to roll the powder into a ball.
Add cayenne pepper (cut into pieces) into the powder. Bundle the kratom powder into a cheesecloth. Tie it up.
Pour Saint John’s Wort into the broiler and heat the oil over lowest heat settings. Add the cheesecloth with kratom powder.
Warm up the kratom powder or until the oil turns greenish. Remove the kratom cheesecloth bundle from the boiling oil and squeeze the bundle.
Use rubber gloves to remove and squeeze the bundle. Remember, the red vein has analgesic effects.
Weigh the beeswax and add it to the oil in the broiler. After melting the beeswax, remove the solution from heat.
Add the essential oil of your choice. Pour the solution into containers with a lid and label them.
If you have some kratom powders to spare, you can experiment. You can substitute the red vein kratom with other strains to experiment how it affects you.
The right dose is essential to experience the benefits. Start with a drop and use it sparingly. Since this oil is very potent, it’s recommended that you rotate it with other kratom products.
Finding kratom oil can be difficult. Due to the process used, one bottle of oil takes hours to extract. It’s also expensive.
To save up money on your kratom supply, kratom powder should be your primary kratom. Use the oil once a week or every other week.
Users claim that the potency is higher in the oil than with other kratom products. They attest that oral consumption is safe.
Users warn against the regular consumption of the oil. Tolerance or dependency is rather fast when using this type of kratom.
Kratom oil and its effects are almost similar to kratom powder. The difference is the potency. Oil kratom is more potent than other kratom products.
