Making Kratom Capsules at Home
Very few things are better than the ease derived from using Kratom capsules. Capsules allow you to enjoy the unique freedom of taking your Kratom on the go. That is, without need to set aside a couple of minutes to make or drink tea. But readymade capsules can be expensive, and it is important to explore the necessary options you have to circumvent this.
A great way to go about this is to make your capsules yourself. Not only are you getting the best of Kratom with the convenience you’ve come to expect, but you are also saving yourself a ton of money. There is also the added benefit that some say the process is fun and engaging. To start, here are some things you need:
- Kratom Powder
- Capsules – there are various types available so choose one you are comfortable with
- Coffee mill – This is necessary to change the leaves to powder
- A capsule maker
Once you have these, we can get going.
Breaking it Down
Option One: Using a capsule machine
Simply put, a capsule machine is a plastic box that contains slots where empty capsules are placed. The powder is then set in the machine and packed in these capsules. There are different types of machines available on the market and they all work in the same manner. Although you can also pack kratom capsules yourself which we would be discussing shortly, the greatest advantage these machines have over that method of creating capsules is that with this, you do not have to cope with measuring it whenever you take a dose of it.
Option Two: Manual filling
Filling the capsules, yourself is honestly an uncomplicated process. Put an amount of Kratom extract or powder into a large container and put on some latex gloves. We recommend latex gloves because they are better than other variants. We believe this because they are very hygienic, and it prevents the powder from staining your hands.
Subsequently pour the capsules into a bowl. Each capsule has a short and long part. The short part covers the long part of the capsule, and the capsule is only locked by the friction between the two parts. Conventional method requires separating the capsule, push the large section into the powder and put it back with the short piece on it. To ensure you have a firmer pack, you might want to push it down twice.
To grasp the pill close to the opening end in a pencil clutch and push all three fingers down the Kratom powder along with the tablet. And although this method works, it is uncomfortable. Most times, kratom powder scatters and sticks to the capsule exterior and your fingers. There is also the fact that because you cannot tap down the Kratom powder, it will be hard to obtain a pack of capsules with an even rate. Each capsule will have a fluctuating dose.
Where Can I Buy The Empty Capsules From?
Empty Kratom capsules are available from your local health store albeit there is a limit to the amount you can buy at a time. Their prices could also be higher compared to what you would get if you wished to buy online. So you might want to do some research on that before choosing an option for yourself.
There are several types of Kratom filling machines available in the market that would do an amazing job of filling in the Kratom directly into the capsules and cap them. With each of these devices, one fills one end of the capsule, so it is important to note what dimension of the Kratom capsule you are going to use before you pick the machine.
You also have the advantage to make the capsules with no added substances. Independent Kratom capsules are a definite cost-effective option to smoke shops or neighborhood stores. And perhaps you are one of those people wondering if stores like GNC or Walmart make Kratom capsules – the answer is No, they do no.
