Crafting Your Own Kratom Extract: A Step-by-Step Guide

Kratom can be transformed into an extract for a more concentrated and potent experience. Making your own Kratom extract might seem daunting, but with the right knowledge and guidance, it’s an achievable endeavor. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the step-by-step process of creating your own Kratom extract from powder.

Note: Kratom extracts are highly concentrated and should be used with caution. Always research and ensure that Kratom is legal in your area before proceeding.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Before you begin, make sure you have the following materials:

  1. High-quality Kratom powder
  2. Ethanol or another high-proof alcohol
  3. Citric acid (like lemon or lime juice)
  4. Glass jars or containers
  5. Fine strainer or cheesecloth
  6. A double boiler or similar setup for heat

Step 2: Measure Your Kratom Powder

Start by measuring the desired amount of Kratom powder. Remember that extracts are potent, so use a smaller amount compared to what you’d typically use for regular Kratom consumption. A general guideline is 1 gram of Kratom powder for every 4-5 ounces of liquid (alcohol and citric acid mixture).

Step 3: Prepare the Kratom Mixture

  1. In a glass jar, combine the measured Kratom powder with the high-proof alcohol. The alcohol should completely cover the powder.
  2. Add a few drops of citric acid to the mixture. Citric acid helps in extracting the alkaloids from the Kratom.
  3. Seal the jar and shake it well to ensure even distribution.

Step 4: Extraction Process

  1. Place the sealed jar in a cool, dark place. Allow the mixture to sit for about 1-2 weeks, shaking it gently every day. This allows the alcohol to extract the alkaloids from the Kratom.
  2. After the extraction period, strain the mixture through a fine strainer or cheesecloth into another clean glass jar. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the Kratom powder.

Step 5: Evaporation

  1. Set up a double boiler or similar heat setup. Place the extracted liquid in the top part of the double boiler.
  2. Heat the liquid gently to evaporate the alcohol. This process might take some time, so be patient. Keep the heat low to avoid damaging the alkaloids.

Step 6: Storage

  1. Once the alcohol has completely evaporated, you’ll be left with a concentrated Kratom extract. It will have a sticky, resin-like consistency.
  2. Transfer the extract into a small, airtight container for storage. Store it in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight.

Step 7: Safe Usage

Remember that Kratom extracts are potent, so use them sparingly. Start with a small amount and gradually increase if necessary. Be aware of your tolerance levels and the potential for increased potency.


Crafting your own Kratom extract can be a rewarding process that results in a highly concentrated product. However, it’s important to exercise caution and approach the process with respect for the potency of the extract.

By following these steps and using the extract responsibly, you can explore the potential benefits of Kratom in a concentrated form. Always prioritize safety, research, and legality when working with Kratom or any other botanical substance.
