Kratom: a brief profile
Like most Kratom strains, Jetpackkratom is sourced from the leaves of the Mitragyna Speciose plant, native to South-east Asia; Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia, to name a few. It has a complex molecular profile, typically with over 40 alkaloids that can be classified in two categories: Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine.
Mitragynine is associated with stimulating effects of the Kratom, while 7-hydroxymitragynine is more associated with a sedative effect. While the range of effects are of course dose dependent, the potency of these compounds varies considerably depending on the environment of the region, as well as the harvest and drying time. For example, with the Bali strain (generally considered the mildest) the recommended dose range is 5-10 grams, whereas with the Maeng Da variety, a significantly stronger strain, this is at 1-2 grams. All contain Mitragynine, but vary considerably in potency. As a compound mitragynine is known as an opioid agonist, meaning it has an affinity to bind with Delta opioid receptors in the brain, unlike many opioids which tend to target the class of opioid receptors known as ‘Mu’. However, at higher doses Mitragynine may also stimulate the Mu receptors, which is perhaps why users typically describe Kratom as energizing in lower doses, and sedative in higher doses.
Exosphere and Gold
What stands out with the Jetpackkratom is the extraordinary percentage of Mitragynine. Whereas with most Kratom products Mitragynine ranges around 4 percent, with Jetpackkratom products, this is around 45%. And yet the exceptionality doesn’t stop there – the folks at Jetpackkratom have also produced a pure mitragynine powdered extract, with no other alkaloids, allowing for an isolation of the just the stimulating effects of Kratom and therefore ideal for those looking to harness just the energy effects of kratom. This comes in the form of capsules containing 80mg of pure Mitragynine, and a powdered extract containing 80% Mitragynine. So potent is this product, hailed as Jetpackkratom Gold, that 1 extract is equivalent to 70 grams of kratom leaves. With Jetpackkratom products we have something truly exceptional – a powerful extract made in Amsterdam and sourced sustainably from Thailand (this means no cutting down trees after harvesting leaves!)
So what are you waiting for, explore the Jetpackkratom Exosphere and Gold in capsule, powder, or liquid form, and discover the full range of the Kratom experience.
