What Are Kratom Pills?
The kratom plant, also known as Mitragyna Speciosa in scientific terms, originates from the regions of Southeast Asia. The leaves are responsible for the plant’s many amazing uses and popularity because they contain two alkaloids, Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine, which are extracted via various processes at the right maturity stage. These two alkaloids bind to the same receptors in our brain as opioid drugs, thus producing very similar results. After the kratom leaves are harvested, they’re dried for a couple of weeks and grounded into a fine powder which can be used to create additional forms of kratom products such as edibles and various extracts. The powder itself is not considered an extract because the alkaloids have not been removed from the powder.
Once the alkaloids are removed from the powder, converted into a more concentrated powder, and encapsulated to pills. Capsules, softgels, and tablets are types of pills. Capsules are composed of about 1 gram of kratom powder encapsulated in a vegan and pharma grade case. The capsule can be taken apart and used for its internal substance. Softgels are similar to capsules because they contain a different substance inside. However, softgels usually hold a liquid and have a soft outer surface. For example, omega pills (fish oil). Tablets are solid and made specifically from the material that is providing the uses or benefits. All forms of kratom pose a risk for side effects, both long term and short term.
How Long Do Kratom Pills Take to Kick in?
Kratom pills take a bit longer to kick than other forms of kratom such as tea or tinctures because your body must break down a solid item. Therefore, except to wait anywhere from 30-45 minutes to feel the initial experience.

Kratom Pills For Sale Should Meet This Criteria
If you’re looking to buy kratom pills from a trustworthy vendor, make sure the product meets certain criteria, not only for your wallet’s sake, but for your health as well. The best kratom pills will meet the following requirements shown below. However, before I begin, I’d like to point out that here at Kratom Monkey we’ve already made sure to meet all of the following criteria. Therefore, if you’d like to save time, you can do so by browsing through our kratom pills showcased above.
Not all kratom is created equal. Some kratom farmers will use harmful substances with the intention of maximizing profit margins, but at the cost of the consumer. Therefore, when purchasing kratom pills, make sure the product is free from:
- Heavy metals
- Harmful bacteria such as Salmonella and E. Coli.
You can do so by either directly asking the vendor or (if provided) via their lab results, which are usually accessible on the vendor’s footer menu. Which brings me to my next point.
Third-Party Lab Results
Third party lab results are absolutely crucial for two reasons: First and as mentioned above, they reassure the customer that no harmful substances are included in the vendor’s kratom, and secondly, they certify the amount of alkaloids in the product. Without the concentration of alkaloids, customers have no way of verifying whether a vendor’s claim is true or not. Nor do they have the ability to compare the potency between various vendors. Therefore, kratom vendors must provide third party lab results before claiming 100% transparency.
Similar to lab results, no vendor can claim confidence in their products without providing their customers a guarantee, which is why here at Kratom Monkey we provide a 45-day money-back guarantee for all customers and all our products. Simply send us an email, give us a call, or send us a message via our site chat and we’ll be more than happy to rectify the situation.
