With kratom leaves, you can view the beauty of the leaves, the delicate veins that wind along their underside. It’s a visual link to the plant and to nature. It reminds you of the long path this leaf has taken, over hundreds of miles, through the hands of lots of unseen people, right to you.
Powdered leaf, on the other hand, is regular leaves in powder form. This allows for easier, more consistent measuring since there are no bits and pieces of leaf and veins in the kratom. Everything is uniform and easy to handle. Many people prefer this to the whole leaf kratom. To each their own.
In whole or partial leaves, you can see the veins, which give the kratom a different visual appeal. This also impacts the way the incense works. We offer red, white, and green veined varieties of popular strains. Each has slightly different alkaloid concentrations and ratios, which means different incense experiences for you—even if the incense is from the same area!
Location is everything. Trees grow particularly well in certain locations. Winds and strong storms at certain times produce growth spurts, while wind and storms at other times can kill or cripple a young tree. It’s this element of chance that good location evens out. Over time, the genetics of the kratom trees in the area adapt to the ecosystem through natural selection.
Also, the health of kratom leaves depend on the health of the soil. That’s why we take so much care to make sure the soil is taken care of.
Leaves, powdered or in pieces, are a great way to start experiencing kratom. They aren’t extracted. There’s no amplification of the experience. It’s just simple dry leaves like the ones you see piled high on the ground during autumn.
