Many people want to purchase Kratom extract since this enhanced and concentrated form of kratom powder is both more powerful and more effective. While the easiest way to get this is simply to purchase it from a supplier, it is also possible to extract kratom yourself. In fact, you have your choice of several different extraction methods.
Some of the most popular solvents you can use for kratom extraction include water, spirits (like vodka), white vinegar, or isopropyl alcohol. Want to know more? Keep reading and by the time you’re done, you’ll know exactly how to make kratom extract using various types of solvents.
How to Extract Kratom with Water
Most pure kratom extract is made using the water-based method. To do this, you’ll need to start with 200mg of fresh Kratom. It should already be finely ground and have no visible veins.
Start by adding enough water to saturate the kratom, taking care not to make any lumps. Next, heat the water until it boils, constantly stirring it with a wooden spoon. Add the juice of one fresh lemon. This helps extract the alkaloids out of the leaves.
Since the lemon juice evaporates while the water boils, it will make very little difference in the taste of the final product.
After the mixture boils for 20 to 30 minutes, turn off the heat and let it settle. At this point, it will be a syrup-like paste. You’ll want to use a muslin bag to filter the paste so only the kratom-infused liquid passes through.
Make sure you wear rubber gloves so you don’t burn your hands!
Pour the boiled and filtered water in a flat dish and allow the water to evaporate. After a day or two, you’ll have a thick paste of kratom. It will start in a semi-solid state and eventually become a solid that’s easy to break. You can then mold it to form tablets or grind it with a mortar and pestle to make powder.
In general, you can expect to get 35 to 40 grams of pure kratom extract from your initial 200 mg of powdered kratom.
Extracting Kratom with Spirits
Using spirits (like vodka) in the extraction process will leave you with a final product that is very ideal. For this reason, it’s the preferred extraction method among kratom buyers.
Important Note: Isopropyl alcohol is poisonous, so it’s important to choose an alcohol that is appropriate.
Start with finely ground kratom leaves, then add enough alcohol to make a paste. You may wish to add some lemon juice, which will work in the same way as explained above.
With this method, you won’t heat the mixture. Instead, you’ll seal the ingredients in a glass bottle and shake it vigorously to mix it. When you’re sure it’s well-mixed, put the sealed bottle in a bigger container.
Pour boiling water into the larger container to heat up the contents of the bottle. The alcohol in the bottle will immediately start to evaporate. Leave the bottle in the water for about an hour, shaking it every once in a while.
Next, filter the mixture through a kitchen strainer or muslin sheet. Leave the extract in a shallow dish until the moisture is gone. Once it’s solidified, you can break it down into powder by using a grinder, or just use it as-is.
Multi-Solvent Heatless Extraction
Another extraction method you can use involves several different solvents. This method aims to conserve as many of the psychoactive alkaloids contained in kratom as possible. You’ll use white vinegar and 99% isopropyl alcohol.
The first step is to freeze your raw kratom powder. This expands the plant cells and causes them to burst, which creates more surface area. Doing so will allow the solvent to extract the alkaloids more efficiently.
Next, you’ll want to add the kratom powder to a mason jar until it’s 1/3 to ½ of the way full. Slowly add the vinegar, stirring it until it’s completely saturated. Be careful not to add so much that it takes on a soupy consistency.
Let the mixture sit for about an hour, then add isopropyl alcohol. Stir this mixture vigorously so every particle comes into contact with the solvent. You’ll want to let this sit for at least two days, stirring it up each day.
Once two to four days have passed, you’ll want to decant the top layer into a shallow glass pan. Wait several hours until the alcohol has evaporated off. You’ll know it’s ready when you can drag your finger along the solution.
When you’re sure all the alcohol has evaporated, scrape the final products off the bottom of the pan. It will likely appear brown and crystal-like. However, depending on the thickness of your decanted solution, it may have more of a powdery look.
