PRODUCT: MIT45 Gold Liquid Kratom Extract Tincture
KRATOM GEEK RATING: 5/10
What is the “MIT45 Gold” Product Line All About?
The MIT45 Gold Liquid Kratom Extract is supposed to have extreme potency. I’ve heard a lot of debate over the past year about whether MIT45 Gold is actually “better” or stronger than the unbeatable OPMS Liquid Maeng Da Extract.
The MIT45 Gold has reportedly no flavor or smell, and it’s extracted in Holland, using state-of-the-art chemical extraction machines. They get the name “MIT45 Gold” because it says it has 45% mitragynine content. Wow! As you can imagine, this type of potency quickly sparked the interest of Kratom consumers everywhere.
A couple of my colleagues and I tried it out and we’re ready to share our experience with you! I’ll also let you know how the MIT45 Gold Liquid Kratom Extract compares to other Kratom extracts that I’ve tried.
I’ll be the judge of that!
MIT45 Gold Liquid Kratom Extract Product Details:
- Kratom Extract made from Maeng Da strains
- 15mL bottle / 1-2 servings per container
- 100% all-natural, non-GMO product
- 50mg of Mitragyna Speciosa Extract per bottle
Overall Product Quality
Unfortunately for me, my first impression of this product was underwhelming.
I took approximately half of the 15mL bottle in a single swig. I wouldn’t say it had absolutely NO taste, but the flavor was fairly mild and tolerable (awesome). It seemed like a clean extract.
The effects came on quickly and the feeling was similar to taking a few grams of regular Green Maeng Da Kratom powder, a little more amplified I suppose. I got a positive boost in my mood and a small surge of mental energy, but it was very short-lived. I seemed to like Gold and Black liquid extracts by O.P.M.S Kratom much more – they have been a top-rated extract since released back in 2013. Plus, they even list the approximate alkaloid content.
I expected this to be more potent and robust. It lacked that special kick I was craving. I think my expectations were too high after reading the enticing product descriptions on their website.
A couple of days later, I decided to give it another shot. This time I took the full bottle. Right away, it was MUCH more amplified. I felt energized and super content, which lasted about 2 hours. This was a pleasant surprise, but I didn’t expect to have to take the full bottle to get those effects.
In the MIT45 Gold product description, they claim that it’s a “full-spectrum” Kratom extract. But looking at the actual packaging on the bottle I received, it’s actually NOT full-spectrum because it only the Mitragynine was extracted. It doesn’t actually contain any 7-Hydroxymitragynine.
The label on the bottle has a “Product Facts” panel that claims: “Mitragyna Speciosa Extract (leaves): 50mg” AND “7-Hydroxymitragynine ** ” (pictured below)… So, ZERO?
A ‘full-spectrum” Kratom extract is a complete alkaloid fraction extraction, meaning it should contain a heavy handful of alkaloids in the plant’s profile after extraction, not just the main one (Mitragynine). “Full-spectrum” Kratom extracts should contain both 7-Hydroxymitragynine AND Mitragynine. Perhaps I’m reading that incorrectly, but if it doesn’t contain any 7-Hydroxymitragynine the description is rather misleading.
Determining the potency ratios of Kratom Extracts can be really tricky because all companies display it differently. It’s important to pay attention and do your research. Take caution, too.
MIT45 Gold Liquid Kratom Extract – Pricing
You can purchase MIT45 Gold on a few different websites, and the prices vary depending on where you buy it. The most expensive is from the MIT45 website for a whopping $19.99 per bottle! (April 2022)
I purchased mine from buyopms.com for a slightly cheaper price of $12.95!
You can also find this product on Pure Leaf Kratom and Pop Kratom websites. I’ve even seen the MIT45 Gold Liquid Extract in my local gas station. However, be safe and do your research to make sure that you’re buying from a secure and reputable vendor. Play it safe.
Comparisons & The Final Verdict
I’ve tried many liquid Kratom extracts over the years, but this was my first time trying anything from MIT45. They are GMP-certified by the American Kratom Association. View the full list of certified Kratom vendors here.
This product sparked my interest because of the high potency and positive chatter amongst the community. It’s also cheaper than other Kratom extracts I buy (a big plus). Sadly, it did not resonate how I hoped it would. Someone who is newer to Kratom extracts may find this more effective. This product is advertised as EXTREMELY potent. That’s what I expected and it did not deliver that for me.
The biggest plus was the mild, tolerable taste. Personally, I’m not a fan of fruity-flavored extracts because they usually end up tasting really metallic and yucky. My all-time favorite Kratom extract is fruit-flavored and it provides GREAT effects, but I hate the taste and always have. The MIT45 Gold had a mild earthy flavor that was easily disguisable when followed by water or juice.
Out of all the Kratom Extracts I’ve tried from different vendors, there are two that reign superior. They’re really hard to beat because they work SO well for me. Gold and Black liquid Kratom extracts by O.P.M.S Kratom and Sour Apple Kratom Extract Shot by Happy Hippo Herbals* (reviews on these are coming soon!). Both of these Kratom extracts come in smaller bottles (8mL and 10mL) and are slightly more expensive. In comparison, the MIT45 Gold does not have the same peak of effects or last as long as the competitors.

How often do you take kratom? Are you worried about your tolerance level being so high? I take black opms caps every day and I’m worried about withdrawals because I don’t feel much effect anymore.
I take Kratom every day, sometimes multiple times a day. I’ve been using Kratom for years, so my tolerance has slightly increased over time. However, I am able to maintain a 2-gram serving size by following a strain rotation schedule. Also, I RARELY use extracts.
If you alter the strains you use every day, it will help keep your receptors fresh. For example, I’ll take Green Maeng Da on Monday, White Bali on Tuesday, Red Thai on Wednesday, and so on. Just find 3-4 strains that work well for you and rotate through them.
Happy Hippo wrote a detailed blog about strain rotation and I found it to be very helpful 😊
Be careful buying cheaper kratom products. Lots of people bootleg products to capitalize from the success of a good brand. I know MIT45 pretty well and you won’t find an official product that cheap online. Also if you want to try another brand reach out on my website.
