4 Tips for Finding the Strongest Kratom

Open Sidebar

If your current kratom doesn’t give you the same result that it once did, or if you’re just not achieving the potency you’ve been hoping for, it’s probably time to switch things up. Some kratom products are known for having mild effects while others are supercharged in their potency. It largely depends on the total concentration of alkaloids present as well as the alkaloid ratios (e.g. the amount of mitragynine vs 7-hydroxymitragynine). So if you’re looking to get more, here are a few simple tips for finding the strongest kratom.

1. Shop Kratom Extracts 

If you’re looking for the most potent kratom available, kratom extract products may be the answer. Kratom extraction involves dissolving the plant material—usually by means of water or alcohol dissolution—and collecting the concentrated alkaloids. The alkaloid-rich extract can then be dried and repurposed into powder form, mixed into other kratom powders, or placed into a carrier liquid and sold as a tincture. Since the alkaloids have been isolated and concentrated, these are the strongest kratom products you’ll find. 

Extracts go by many names, including kratom extract, enhanced kratom, ultra-enhanced kratom, and liquid kratom. Our own kratom extract offers high potency without sacrificing purity. Each batch undergoes an extended filtration process to remove the maximum amount of plant matter and provide you with just the alkaloids you want—with no filler. 

2. Explore Maeng Da Strains

If you’re not quite ready for extracts but you’re seeking out the strongest kratom strains to enjoy in capsule or powder form, your best bet is to start with Maeng Da. White Maeng Da Kratom Powder and Red Maeng Da Kratom Powder are excellent picks. Both strains have high mitragynine content (White Maeng Da has been measured with over 1.4% mitragynine), and they’re commonly sought by experienced connoisseurs who want the best. The name Maeng Da translates to “pimp-grade” for a reason. Explore the red variety if you prefer the more relaxing effects of kratom, or choose the white variety if you want energizing effects. Other strains known for higher-than-average potency include Borneo, Indo, and Thai strains.

3. Look for Horned Kratom Strains

Horned kratom refers to any kratom strain that has pointed ridges along the edge of the leaf. The shape is believed to have come from a genetic mutation. While there’s some debate as to whether horned kratom strains actually have higher potency, many customers swear by them. For instance, this White Vein Horn Kratom Powder is a popular choice among customers seeking that extra burst of energy. Just keep in mind that, while the potency may be higher, the duration of effects tend to be reviewed as a bit shorter. 

4. Avoid Green Kratom Strains 

Green kratom strains aren’t typically the way to go if you’re seeking the most potent kratom. That’s because the effects are less defined and more balanced: any energy boost or relaxation is going to be less pronounced than you would get with a red or white strain. Those who enjoy green strains typically note they tend to be excellent for mental well-being and focus, but more subtle and nuanced than the alternatives. 

Additional Tips for Finding the Strongest Kratom

If you’re still struggling to find the best kratom, refer to product reviews to see what real people are saying. Also read the ingredients and ensure that the kratom you’re buying is all-natural. Any additives or adulterants are going to dilute the alkaloids and hurt the potency of the product. 

Finally, try comparing different products to see which one offers the result you’re trying to achieve. For instance, purchase a Pick 5 Bundle Deal or a Kratom Capsules Sample Pack and compare the effects. There are some excellent kratom products out there; you just have to explore your options carefully.
