Kra Thum Kok (Mitragyna hirsuta)
Mitragyna hirsuta is a genus of trees in the Rubiaceae family. The tree is tall, and is found in parts of Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam. Members of this genus contain indole alkaloids, which have antimalarial and analgesic properties. The leaves of the Mitragyna Hirsuta tree, called Kra Thum Kok, have long been used as a folk remedy and are known for both their stimulating and sedating effects. Small doses stimulate the user, while larger doses, have a relaxing, sedating, and pain relieving effect. This is a much safer and healthier alternative than the highly addictive opiate and opiate like substances, which produce the same effect. The leaves are either brewed with hot water or are chewed, sometimes with Areca Nut (Areca catechu); to achieve the stimulating effect. The plant also contains a number of alkaloids including Mitraphylline, which has been shown to inhibit the growth of cancer.
We started producing Extract capsules because of the growing demand of stronger herbal products. Of a plain plant powder a mild dose is 3-5 grams which translates to 7 to 14 capsules (400 mg per capsule). Extract capsules contain 75% extract. Extract capsules have 500mg of extract/flower blend which makes it 375mg of extract and 125mg of Blue Lotus flower powder as a binder.
All extracts that we use for making extract capsules are sticky and some are even runny when they are completely dehydrated. That’s why we blend 75% resin extract with 25% Blue Lotus flower powder to make it possible to pulverise the extract and fill it into capsules.
Our extract capsules can be consumed in different ways.Orally: 1-2 extract caps is a mild dose. 3-4 extract caps is a medium dose 5-6 extract caps is a strong dose. When consumed orally it works much better to open the capsule and put the content under your tongue (sublingual). A lot of water should be consumed along with taking extract capsules. Dehydration and a headache can appear otherwise. The extract capsules can be opened and the content can be smoked! You can also dissolve the content in warm water, wine or vodka. If you like you can mix the content of the capsules with food like salad or a smoothie. But please note that the sublingual consumption of the powder inside the capsule works most effective!
