One can extract the residual material from kratom extracts through the boiling process. This residue forms into solid resins or kratom pies that weigh about 15 to 20 grams.

Potency is what differentiates kratom resin from one another. The most common resin categories are 8x and 15x. There are also other denominations depending on how strong the resin compares to an unprocessed kratom leaf.
The number coefficient pertains to how many grams of dried kratom leaves the resin is derived from to produce 1 gram of extract. For instance, if you’ve removed 8 grams of kratom leaves into a gram of resin, this makes an 8x resin.
So, does this mean an 8x kratom resin contains 8 times the amount of alkaloid content? Well, not actually, since the extraction process is not 100% efficient. However, this number coefficient should help guide you in figuring out the right dosage to use.
