The kratom community is taking off in the United States, and it shows no signs of slowing down. As you look around in stores or buy kratom online, you’ll find all kinds of different products with various names. Before you can make sense of specialty products like Godfather extracts, it’s important to start with a good background of basic knowledge about kratom. For one thing, there are only three true strains of kratom:
You might see other types of kratom products called strains, but they’re more like individual subsets within the three true strains. One example of this is Godfather Maeng Da, which has quickly gained a reputation as one of the best varieties of kratom. People prefer it because of its high alkaloid levels, among other things, so definitely learn more about Godfather kratom if you’re looking for the best kratom products.
What Is Godfather Kratom?
Godfather Maeng Da is the original type of kratom from which we derive some of our proprietary extracts. It naturally has a high MIT potency, which means we don’t need to enhance it at all. From there, we can also make Godfather Enhanced, which is a regular powder that has been enhanced with 45% MIT, giving it alkaloid levels that are about three times higher than what you might expect to find in regular kratom powder. This is true even of the best types of kratom powder like maeng da kratom.
Types of Alkaloids in Kratom
To understand what makes Godfather extracts so special, you need to know a thing or two about the alkaloids in kratom. Alkaloids are organic compounds that occur naturally in the kratom plant, and they’re the primary reason so many people are becoming interested in kratom. To be considered an alkaloid, something must produce physiological effects on human beings or other animals. It’s the physiological effects that kratom alkaloids are known for that make them so important to so many people.
According to The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association, kratom alkaloids can interact with the delta-opioid, kappa-opioid, and mu-opioid receptors in the human body. The resulting interactions are similar to those created by analgesic drugs and anti-inflammatory drugs. Examples of anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs include ibuprofen, anesthesia, oxycodone, tramadol, and fentanyl. Since some of the pharmaceutical drugs on this list are getting a reputation for being dangerous and causing social problems here in the United States, people are interested in whether or not kratom alkaloids might be a more natural way to create similar effects.
There are two main kratom alkaloids:
- Mitragynine – Long believed to be the most important alkaloid in kratom (up until recent years), mitragynine has been demonstrated to bind with opioid receptors in the human body. These interactions have been documented by researchers and published by The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association.
- 7-Hydroxymitragynine – Within the last several years, we’ve seen information indicating that 7-hydroxymitragynine might actually be the single most important kratom alkaloid. Those researchers published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association have said that this alkaloid has a special biochemical structure that allows it to interact with the human body quickly. Perhaps even more importantly, they write that 7-hydroxymitragynine has “13- and 46-fold higher potency than morphine and mitragynine, respectively.”
Types of Godfather Extracts Capsules
Now that you know a little bit about alkaloids and why we care about them, you’re ready to appreciate what makes Godfather Extracts special. Just consider the following two options:
- Godfather Special Extract No. 1 – This is our pure 45% MIT Godfather extract. One capsule is equivalent to about four through six grams of regular kratom powder. In other words, the alkaloids in this kratom make it so that the amount required is much lower. Someone who wants typically to have roughly five grams of kratom powder might think that a single capsule full of the extract is just as good. For another example, people who normally think two grams of kratom powder is a good amount might only be interested in half of the GF extract cap. It’s important to think about this some before going into the experience so you end up with the amount of alkaloids you like.
- Godfather X Special Extract No. 2 – This is our pure 80% MIT Godfather extract. At even higher levels than our first extract, these capsules are normally appealing to people who like their kratom powder in amounts of more than five grams or even eight grams of regular kratom powder. If your preferred amount of normal kratom powder is closer to four grams, you might not be interested in more than half of a gfx extract cap.
