That’s the question on a lot of people’s lips and it’s tough question to answer definitively as liquid kratom can refer to a number of different kratom products. In essence, liquid kratom is a powerful kratom extract.
Liquid kratom tinctures contain the extract of the Mitragyna speciosa plant, the effective alkaloids Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine in particular.
But it doesn’t stop there! As we’ve covered in the past in our kratom shots review, liquid kratom can also take the form of flavored beverages. Like those little plastic energy drink bottles you’ll find on the counter of a convenience store, kratom shots are small servings of liquid kratom that can be taken on the go.

Kratom shots are typically found in head shops and smoke shops in parts of the country where kratom is legal. As with other products found in head shops, the contents of these small kratom bottles are dubious at best.
Since most of them do not come from a trusted kratom vendor, there is no way to know the percentage of each active alkaloid present in these kratom shots nor is such information made available on their labels.
Quite simply, it’s because the manufacturers of these products don’t have to. Since kratom is not FDA-approved and it is, therefore, unregulated, these kratom companies are under no obligation to make such information public.
We’ve encountered this sort of problem before with Mr. Smiley brand Kratom Shot. This kratom drink comes in a bottle that does not list the origin of the kratom contained within it. Most kratomites know that the M. speciosa plant is indigenous to Southeast Asia and is harvested in places like Indonesia and Thailand. We also want to know from which locale it originated. No dice with Mr. Smiley.
Larger kratom drinks also exist as we saw with Aura Blue who offer an 8-oz kratom drink with raspberry flavoring. But users are unlikely to finish a full eight ounces as it is notorious for being super-thick and syrupy.
This is where it’s at for the legions of kratom enthusiasts who are tired of the toss n’ wash method and want a kratom experience that won’t leave damp clumps of kratom powder stuck to the roofs of their mouths.
This concentrated kratom product is made from many kratom leaves and is much stronger than kratom powder or kratom capsules. The level of strength is normally marked on the bottle or tincture. For instance, you might see 10x Kratom Extract or 50x Kratom Extract. This tells you just how potent your kratom extract is. The larger the number, the more kratom leaves have been used to create the extract.
As I said before, kratom shots are much like energy shots. You have no real way of knowing what’s in the bottle and how much you’re getting of kratom’s respective alkaloids. Furthermore, kratom shots rely on artificial sweeteners and, in some cases, artificial coloring.
On the other hand, pure liquid kratom extract is typically offered by kratom vendors who pride themselves on transparency. By looking at the number in the extract’s name (,i.e. 10x Kratom Extract), consumers know right away exactly what they’re purchasing and what to expect.
Everyone remembers that famous abbreviation from when we were kids. K.I.S.S.
What’s that mean? Easy.
Keep It Simple, Stupid.
Why bother fussing with a measuring spoon or a scale when working with kratom powder? Better to buy a liquid kratom extract that comes pre-prepared and ready to be knocked back like an Irish Car Bomb.
Liquid kratom extracts are user-friendly and have a higher strength than kratom powder or kratom capsules. People suffering from chronic pain, including those who have undergone an operation or chemotherapy, have used liquid kratom extract to manage their pain.
Kratom’s effects depend largely on what kratom strain you are working with. For this reason, the effects produced by liquid kratom extract varies based on what strain was used in the bottling process.
These effects can include any or all of the following:
Certain kratom strains also possess anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which have made it increasingly popular in the nootropic community.
Since liquid kratom extracts are highly concentrated, that means that they are powerful. As Peter Parker would tell you, “With great power comes great responsibility.”
In other words, you’ve gotta be careful when dosing with liquid kratom extract because it’s easier to take too much all at once. Due to their incredible potency, it’s easy to build up a tolerance and get hooked.
Consequently, when a user attempts to discontinue use, withdrawal symptoms can crop up. The effects of kratom withdrawal can include any of these symptoms:
WARNING: Large doses of liquid kratom extract can cause injury to the liver and kidneys. DO NOT USE KRATOM EXTRACT IN EXCESS. It is also highly advised to cycle one’s doses to avoid tolerance or harm.
Stay calm and kratom on. Happy kbombing, boys and girls.
