When it comes to buying Kratom, there are many choices to consider. Most people consume themselves over which strain they should get. They spend their time getting educated on green strains, red strains and so on. This is obviously a very important factor to the Kratom experience. However, an equally important question to ask yourself is, “How do I want to receive my Kratom?” Should you get a fine crushed powder, or instead opt for Kratom capsules? While the decision is entirely personal, this article will cover the different distinctions between capsules and powders.
I could go on and on about all of the little nuances between powders and capsules, but the most common topic we hear among the Kratom community is price. So I figure this is a good place start the discussion!
We interact with a lot of different people on our social media accounts, and time and time again we see that price definitely plays a role in many people’s decision-making. There are several factors that can sway a person from buying either capsules or powders. One of the biggest differences between the two would have to be the cost. Kratom powder is almost always cheaper than Kratom capsules. Why? Let me explain.
Kratom powders are typically vacuumed packed for maximum freshness. At Karma, we also include silica gel packets to help reduce moisture, as well as child resistant bags. But, I digress! Powders are pretty easy to package and don’t require nearly as much work as capsules.
Kratom capsules are an entirely different beast. It is much more intensive experience for a company to take powders and turn them into capsules. This is where the price difference comes in. Not only does a company have to pay for the actual capsules themselves, but the process is much more labor intense than simply filling up a bag.
If you’re looking for the most bang for your buck, powders will always win out. But not everyone bases their decisions solely on cost. This brings us to our next point in the powders versus capsules debate.
Sometimes in life, convenience trumps cost. When it comes to Kratom, many people would agree to just that. You will often have to take out several scoops of Kratom powder to equal the amount that is contained in one small Kratom capsule. Now some people may pour scoops of Kratom as part of their morning routine and aren’t at all bothered with it. But for people looking for more “on the go” options, capsules work perfectly. Not everyone has the time or the desire to weigh out portions of Kratom powders. Plus, if you are somewhere other than home, it’s not exactly easy to whip out a large bag of Kratom! The sheer size of capsules make them convenient to carry with you wherever you may go.
More Than One Type of Capsule
You know the difference between powders and capsules. But do you know the difference between extract and powder capsules? This brings us to a whole other side of Kratom capsules. When you look at Kratom capsules, you have two basic choices: regular powder capsules or extract powder capsules. If you simply prefer your Kratom powder in a capsule, it is still more expensive than straight powder, but essentially it is a one to one in terms of product.
Kratom extract capsules pack a lot more punch. The extract capsules are actually anywhere from 35 to 50 times more potent than a typical powder capsule. Why? Well the extracting process takes only the active alkaloids and delivers a much more concentrated and potent dosage. For this reason, you will find extract capsules to be more expensive than regular capsules because they deliver a much higher concentration of Kratom. We offer both MIT 45 and O.P.M.S. Gold Kratom Capsules as we believe they are the best extract capsules on the market today.
If you are trying to decide if powder is best for you or capsules, hopefully this article has given you more insight on the differences between the two. Let’s review what you’ve learned today!
- One of the biggest differences between capsules and powders are the price. You will always pay more for a capsule than a powder.
- Sometimes the decision all comes down to convenience. Is powder more convenient for you? Or do you need a more “on the go” solution?
- If you do choose to go with Kratom capsules, you can choose between traditional powder or extract powder capsules. Extract capsules will always provide a much more potent Kratom experience. But in the end, you still have to choose what is right for you.
Now that you have the information, what are you waiting for? Go make your choice!
