According to the American Kratom Association, there are over 15 million kratom users in the United States. That number is even higher today as more people learn about this helpful plant.
One common question beginners ask is: what’s the difference between kratom capsules vs powder?
Intro to Kratom Powder: 101
Kratom is derived from the leaves of a tropical tree, called Mitragyna speciosa, which is also a part of the coffee family. It is native to southeast Asia. The native peoples would frequently chew on the raw leaf.
However, if you do not have a Kratom tree in your back yard, this is not practical as Kratom does not grow very well in the U.S.
The most readily available Kratom styles domestically are powdered and encapsulated. Kratom leaves are dried in special rooms and have certain special handling properties. The leaves are then ground up into a micronized powder.
The micronized Kratom is then inserted into the Gelatin capsule via a GMPc manufacturing process. It is weighed, cleaned and placed into packaging for distribution.
Kratom capsules are the most convenient method by far as Kratom is very acrid in flavor.
This makes it an excellent choice for those looking to study the Kratom plant and all its glory. They are pre-weighed. A 00 capsule can hold up to 600mg of micronized product. They are easy to store and transport and have a longer shelf life.
