Kratom Capsules, Powders & Shots

What Exactly Is Kratom?

Also known as Mitragyna speciosa, Kratom belongs to the Rubiaceae family of trees (where we get coffee from). Folks in Southeast Asia have long used Kratom leaves as a stimulant in small doses, and alternatively as a sedative in larger doses. Commonly used for its pain-relieving qualities, there are differing experiences depending on the strain.

What Effects Can You Expect from Each Strain of Kratom?

Identified by the color of the veins in the leaves, each strain has a significantly different effect on the body and can be sold as a powder, capsule, or tea. Here’s what you can expect from each of these strains:

White: Alertness, euphoria, almost like drinking too much coffee at once. Very good in place of stimulants and/or coffee as a pick-me-up in the morning.

Green: Anxiety relief, slight alertness, euphoria, pain relief, fuzzy head, relaxation. Perfect natural way to replace a morning routine like coffee, or even anti-anxiety medication (always consult your doctor before adjusting your use of any prescribed medications).

Red: Heavy sedation, complete pain relief, relaxation, fuzzy head, anxiety and depression release. Great to use in place of pain-killers (again, get the approval of your doctor before discontinuing a prescription), to get off of other substances, for insomnia relief, for anxiety, and especially body aches and pains.

O.P.M.S. Kratom Extract Capsules, Powder & Shots

For the advanced kratom user, we also carry O.P.M.S extracts. We have O.P.M.S. silver bag, a mix of regular leaf and kratom extract, in 15- and 8-gram packs of capsules or loose powder. The two varieties we have available are green-vein Malay and a mix of red- and green-vein Maeng Da.

People looking to get away from pain-killers or other substances may benefit from O.P.M.S, gold bag, which is one of the strongest extracts on the market. One gold capsule is equal to 8 or 9 grams of loose-leaf regular powder on the extract scale. The gold bags come in packages of one, three or five capsules. These single pills are not for beginners or the faint of heart.

Lastly, we have O.P.M.S liquid shots. These little bottles of kratom nectar are bitter, but one small tincture-size bottle is equal to 10 grams of regular kratom. Definitely worth the taste, it packs a serious punch.

Don’t hesitate to stop by and ask The Mushroom’s helpful staff about kratom or what we have available. Can’t make it in? Just send us a message and we’ll get right back you.
