What is K Shot Liquid Kratom?

Kratom Extracts are the latest buzz in the Kratom community! More and more seasoned users are straying away from regular Kratom Powder because extracts are superior and potent. It’s one of the quickest and most efficient ways to consume Kratom. 

In general, Kratom Extract derives from isolating the two main alkaloids (Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine) by undergoing a detailed extraction process. Kratom Extracts make it so you can consume much less product to get more advanced effects than regular Kratom powder. 

Pop Kratom’s K Shot has been around for several years and it rapidly became one of the most popular extracts on the market. These K Shots are pure alkaloid suspension oil extracts from Maeng Da Kratom strains. They are really convenient for an “on-the-go” person who doesn’t have a lot of time to muddle with messy Kratom Powder. 

We recently released our new Sour Apple Kratom Extract Shots, different than our popular Kratom Energy Shots. Similar to the K Shot, they are extracted from Maeng Da Kratom strains which makes them very comparable. 

In this article, we are going to briefly discuss the benefits of Pop Kratom’s K Shot so we can compare and contrast it to our Sour Apple Kratom Extract Shots


How Many Grams of Kratom is in the K Shot?

Each 15mL K Shot bottle contains 1-2 servings, equalling to 3-4 grams of regular Kratom Powder. Happy Hippo’s Sour Apple Kratom Extract shot contains 4 grams of Kratom Powder in a 10mL bottle. 

Note: All Kratom Extracts will contain slightly differing amounts of Kratom, it all depends on which product you purchase. It’s important to keep an eye on the potency and serving size to ensure you don’t take too much!


What’s the difference between K Shot and Regular Kratom Extract?

Overall, there aren’t very many huge differences between the K Shot and regular Kratom Extracts. The main difference is, K Shots are slightly diluted with water and other ingredients to make it a more drinkable “beverage” whereas Kratom Extract will solely be the extract concentrate. 

Another minor difference is the type of bottle and amount of servings per container. Typically Kratom Extracts contain extra servings (4-5) per bottle, while the K Shot only contains 1-2 servings per container. 


Pop Kratom K Shot vs. Happy Hippo Kratom Extract Shot

Both the Pop Kratom K Shot and Happy Hippo’s Sour Apple Kratom Extract ShottShot are amazing products. They are great for anyone who enjoys the advantage of convenience. They come in small, easy to carry bottles which are perfect for traveling. As well, both products derive from potent Maeng Da Kratom strains - ideal for all Kratom Extracts.

As mentioned above, the K Shot contains 3-4 grams of plain leaf Kratom Powder in each 15mL bottle as stated on their website, while our Sour Apple Kratom Extract Shot comes in at a solid 4 grams of plain leaf Kratom Powder per 10mL bottle (60mg of Kratom Extract). Both products contain 1-2 servings. 

To determine which product works best for your personal needs, we definitely recommend trying both. Everyone has different preferences. You’ll know which works better after 1-2 servings. We recommend keeping a journal to log your experiences so that you can easily compare and contrast, as well as refer back to those notes for future reference.

Happy Hippo Kratom Extract Shot Customer Review

Here is a review straight from our website about the Sour Apple Kratom Extract Shot

A Great Liquid Kratom Extract!"

"I have a lot of experience with liquid extracts. I've tried extracts from most major vendors including well known extracts like MIT45, OPMS gold, Choice Green Apple, and even the OPMS' new line, OPMS Black. 

The Happy Hippo extract is the best I've tried so far. It has less mitragyna alkaloids than OPMS but the initial onset is stronger. It feels like a good, fast green strain - it also tastes better than other extracts. The flavor is pleasant. 

This is an extract, however, so use safely and sparingly if you have a low tolerance to kratom. Summary: Up there with the best extracts, if not better. Feels like a fast strain with some relaxation. The only advantage I would give some to the more expensive OPMS black is that it lasts a bit longer than Happy Hippo's Sour Apple.”

I got your green apple shots a few days ago, and LOVE them! Thanks for making such a tasty, potent liquid!


I’ve came to the conclusion, after doing research, that Happi Hippo has the highest quality and safety standards out there, and are really the best go, for purchasing Kratom, and other extracts, etc!


I’ve tried both of these and the Sour Apple is way better. Although I usually take the whole bottle in one go.

I usually stick to about 3 grams of powder as my standard kratom dose, and 60mg of Mitra hits right about that same level. Perfect for a nice boost after lunch!
