When you’ve found the correct kratom strain for your purpose, don’t forget the the specific grade that the strain falls under. Kratom Grade is determined by several factors, including processing and Alkaloid concentration. There is not a standardized process, moreover, there’s no clear definition so it remains the wild, wild west at this point. Which has both good and bad sides.
Why are there no standards or processing defined? Mainly because the feds have not gotten involved at that level. Kratom is still for the most part an non-standardized process. There is no clear definition of what processes/concentrations are required to meet each grades requirements. However, there are categories we can loosely define. Below is a basic grades as defined by the industry.
- Commercial Grade (weakest)
- Premium Grade
- Super Grade
- Enhanced Grade
- Ultra Enhanced Grade (most potent)
Understanding the grade of kratom helps you hone in on your specific need.
