    I am thinking of giving Kratom at try but not sure if I should get the extract 95% or just the regular stuff.
    I am also wondering this for many ethno botanicals in general (kava kava, passion flower, blue lotus). The list goes on and on but the question remains. Get the standard herb so you get the whole effects of what the plant can do. Or is better to take the alkaloids which are responsible for what the plant does? This question mainly applies to Kratom 95% since I’m looking forward to giving it a try. Also what about the kava kava 75-85% extracts how do they size up versus the regular powder form?

    For kratom the best by far is the Premium Super Strength Instant powder. For kava it is probably best to get some sort of extract, but not capsules.
