There are different types of kratom tincture which depends on the method that you used on isolating and extracting alkaloids from kratom leaves. People commonly use the technique called full spectrum extract because it is a more natural method than the others. This method can combine all the alkaloid content from the base kratom leaf.
Other kratom tincture types are trying to isolate a specific alkaloid like the 7-hydroxymitragynine. However, there are cases with more or less success. The success of the method depends on the skill of the person that is creating the tincture.

Here are the ingredients of a kratom tincture that you will need:
If you have those ingredients above, you will be one step closer in having a kratom tincture.
1.The first thing that you need to consider is to pick a high-quality kratom. You can start with 4 ounces of kratom leaves. If you have the kratom leaf that you want to create into an extract, you can put them in a sealable container and submerge them with ethanol/water solution.
The ratio should be 1 liter of alcohol/water mix and 8 ounces of kratom leaves. You can use water in creating kratom extract, but it will lack some of the essential qualities.
2. After the first step, you then need to add citric acid. It will turn the alkaloids into salt form, and it can help in the extraction and preservation process. You should add enough amount of citric acid to drop the Ph level below 4.
You will need the Ph strips for this step.
3. Seal the jar and shake it for a few minutes. Place the pot in a dark location like your closet and leave it there for a week.
4. After a week of waiting, strain the content of the jar by using a cheesecloth. Throw away the leaf remains and pour back the extracted liquid into the container. Wait for half of the obtained liquid to evaporate
Measure the remaining liquid and put it inside a quality amber tincture vial.
If you find this kratom tincture guide a bit complicated or you are too lazy in following instructions, you always have the choice to buy a kratom extract from kratom vendors.
