Your Complete Guide to Gold Kratom Powder
Looking to branch out from the standard kratom colors of red, white, and green? Then consider gold kratom powder, a beautiful fermented blend of red and green strains that provides a unique experience.
Gold strains have become some of my favorites. I love Gold Maeng Da and enjoy a Gold Bali kratom session now and again. In this Kratom Monkey guide, I will discuss what is so good about these strains (and others!), outline how to get the most from gold kratom powder, and much more.
Let's start with an introduction to gold kratom and how it's made before we get into the finer details.
What is Gold Kratom Powder?
Most kratom consumers are familiar with red, white, and green kratom, but many see gold as somewhat unusual and obscure. And, indeed, gold kratom powder is made a little differently from the better-known strains. But that is part of what makes it so special!
Here’s the secret: gold kratom combines red and green kratom and is left in the sun to ferment. The fermentation process helps boost the alkaloid content (i.e., essential compounds like mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine), enhancing the kratom’s overall effects.
Once ready, the kratom is crushed into powder and sealed in food-grade resealable pouches to maintain peak freshness and potency. Your kratom should arrive in as good condition as the day it was harvested.
Benefits of Gold Kratom Powder
You can purchase gold kratom in several forms, yet loose powder form remains a go-to product type for many users. But why? Here are a few general reasons why kratom powder holds such broad appeal.
Kratom powder produces faster-acting effects than some products, thanks to how your body absorbs the substance.
Once kratom powder reaches the stomach, your body can begin absorbing the alkaloids into your bloodstream. In contrast, kratom capsules cannot start working until your stomach breaks down the capsule shell and frees the powder.
If you need rapid results for a positive kratom experience, tossing and washing powder or brewing tea with powder are among your best consumption options.
Along with leaves, kratom powder is among the most versatile kratom products available. You can enjoy it in several ways, from the famed toss-and-wash method to making discreet tinctures and tasty edibles.
For kratom enthusiasts and aficionados, buying loose powder always reaps rewards. In addition to experimenting with different consumption methods, you can also mix two, three (or even more!) strains of kratom powder together to refine and personalize your experience.
How to Use Gold Kratom Powder
We briefly explored kratom powder's impressive versatility. Now let's delve deeper into three ways you can enjoy Gold Maeng Da, Gold Bali, and others.
Toss and Wash
‘Tossing and washing’ is the consumption method most often associated with kratom powder. It’s easy and fast-acting, albeit a little messy, and notorious for smacking you with that controversial kratom taste! Here’s how you do it.
- Measure out your kratom dosage (preferably with a measuring scoop)
- Prepare a glass of water (you could add sweetener to neutralize the kratom flavor)
- Spoon some kratom into your mouth (the toss!) and swill it down with water (the wash!)
- Enjoy your kratom experience
Brewing tea is another popular way of using kratom powder. It’s a perfect method for sweetening the flavor and adding potentiators (i.e., cat’s claw, grapefruit, turmeric) to enhance the effects.
Here’s my 7-step guide to brewing kratom tea:
- Measure out your kratom dosage
- Bring a small saucepan of water to a simmer
- Stir your kratom potentiator into the water, if desired
- Add your kratom powder and stir - make sure the powder doesn’t clump!
- Take the saucepan off the heat source
- Pour the kratom tea into a mug through a strainer, such as a coffee filter
- Sit back and savor your sediment-free kratom tea!
Looking for an easier method? Here’s my top tip. Buy some disposable tea bags, fill them with kratom powder, dunk the bag in hot water, let the alkaloids infuse into the brew, and enjoy!
With a bag of kratom powder, enthusiasts could even experiment with making kratom solutions! Of course, it’s not a must, but it’s worth knowing if you want to refine your usage. You could even blend two or more strains to fine-tune your kratom sessions!
Capsules: Buy a capsule maker and some shells and make your own kratom capsules. Homemade kratom capsules are ideal for combining strains and mixing in potentiators.
Edibles: Looking for a more delectable way to consume kratom? Consider making kratom gummies, candies, chocolates, candies, and more. Or buy kratom edibles from us!
Tinctures: Kratom tinctures are convenient, discreet, and extra-potent - and you can make them at home using kratom powder and high-proof alcohol.
Meet the Gold Kratom Powder Strains at Kratom Monkey!
Excited about all the incredible things you can do with gold kratom powder? Awesome! Let me introduce you to three premium gold vein kratoms in the Kratom Monkey collection.
Gold Maeng Da
No surprises here! Maeng Da kratom is a red-hot favorite among U.S. consumers, so we were always going to make it available in gold form. Get ready for intense and punchy effects from this mega-potent kratom, which stands for ‘pimp-grade’ in its native Thai language!
However, since Gold Maeng Da is ultra-strong, it may not be the best kratom for first-timers.
Bali kratom is another sought-after strain, as so many from Indonesia are! Gold Bali is comparable to other Bali kratoms, yet it retains unmistakably unique qualities.
Some users have great results with Gold Bali in the evenings while noting it leaves them a little less smiley than Red Bali. So, if you want a Bali kratom you can still function on, this could be it.
We finish with Gold Reserve, another stellar kratom strain, albeit with milder properties than those mentioned above. This is explained by a slightly reduced alkaloid content in Gold Reserve, which makes it an excellent introduction to gold vein kratom for beginners.
Even so, Gold Reserve kratom powder has more in common with other gold strains than other Reserve kratoms.
Is Gold Kratom Powder Legit?
Yes, gold kratom powder is a genuine and unique product type - for the cynics among us, it’s not a marketing gimmick! However, not every gold vein kratom strain meets the high standards that consumers deserve - and should demand.
Kratom Monkey sells the finest, freshest, and third-party-tested gold kratom powder. We don’t tolerate imitations. Only pure, potent Mitragyna speciosa is good enough for us.
Third-party lab-testing of products compensates for no FDA regulation of kratom. Legit kratom companies send their kratom powder off for purity and potency checks and receive a certificate of analysis in return, which they can proudly publish for all to see!
