If you want to get more out of your kratom powder, you should consider making a kratom tincture. That is because a kratom tincture is convenient. Moreover, it offers one of the effective and potent ways of getting quality kratom experience. As a result, it is no surprise that this is one of the common forms of extracts obtained from kratom.
The truth is that kratom tincture is quite hard to find because of the government’s efforts and regulations to restrict easy access to kratom. Although the powder is still widely used in different locations, it is difficult to get kratom tinctures and extracts readily available for sale.
Therefore, the best option is to convert kratom powder into a tincture. The process is easy and fun. In fact, you can make high-quality tinctures from your home.
The first thing to do when making kratom tinctures is to gather all the ingredients you need. You will find the mixing process to be quite straightforward, simple, and completed within a few hours. Remember that your tincture takes a lot of time to extract the kratom powder’s alkaloids. The mixture should sit for a few weeks before you can have a kratom tincture. The following are the things you need:
- A measurement scale to measure your kratom powder
- A liter of alcohol
- Kratom powder
- pH strips
- Mason jar
- Citric Acid
- Straining material
Steps for Making Kratom
Mix Kratom Powder and Alcohol
Using the scale, measure the appropriate dosage of kratom powder you want to use. It is recommended to use a liter of alcohol for 4 ounces of the kratom powder. You can mix them in a mason jar. Ensure you gently stir your mixture until all kratom gets absorbed into alcohol.
Add Citric Acid
The citric acid is meant to attain pH level of less than 4. Therefore, add it carefully to the solution and then mix and test the mixture’s acidity level with pH strips. You can repeat the process until you attain a pH of 4 or lower.
Store the Mixture
Seal your mason jar before storing your mixture for one week. You should store your mixture in a dry place. Ensure your mixture does not get exposed to the direct sunlight. The mixture should sit for a week, but some people have reported getting high-quality kratom tinctures when they leave the mixture for two weeks. However, a week is just enough.
