Can I Still Buy Kratom?

Yes, you can still buy kratom! Despite facing much antagonization over the last few years, the popularity of kratom has actually been growing. More people are getting exposed to the truth about kratom and the industry is expanding greatly. Therefore, of course, you can still buy kratom. However, the two main factors to consider when buying kratom are:

  • The legality of kratom in your location
  • The quality of the vendor you want to patronize

We’ll take the two factors apart and examine them. 

The Legality of Kratom

The legality of kratom in the United States is somewhat complicated. At the federal level, kratom can be legally sold, purchased, and consumed; the complications arise at the state and county levels. Kratom is legal in 40+ states, though the status of its legality varies. The majority of states don’t have any legislation at all in place regarding kratom specifically. In such states, the applicability of the law defaults to the federal legislation, and since kratom is federally legal, it is legal in those states too. 

In some other states, kratom is legal but restricted to adults above 18 years or 21 years (Tennessee) of age. Such is especially true of states that have adopted a version of their own Kratom Consumer Protection Act, a set of guidelines regulating the use of and access to kratom within a particular jurisdiction. Mind you, in some states where kratom is legal, individual counties may ban it. For instance, kratom is legal in the state of California but illegal in the City of San Diego, CA.

The list below presents the full details……
  • Kratom is banned throughout the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wisconsin. 
  • Apparently, kratom is legal only for adults (18 years above) in the following states: Arizona, Georgia, Illinois (banned in its city of Jerseyville, though), Maryland, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Utah, and Tennessee (not 18 years, but 21 years). 
  • Kratom is fully legal in all the other states. However, in the following states, though kratom remains legal in the rest of the states, the cities and counties in brackets have banned kratom: California (San Diego and Oceanside), Colorado (Denver), Florida (Sarasota County), and Mississippi (some parts of Northern Mississippi).

Despite what this article and the law says now, you should always remain in touch with kratom laws within your jurisdiction, and especially when traveling. These laws may change at any time and you don’t want to be caught on the wrong side.

The Quality of the Vendor

Once you are certain that kratom is legal in your location, the next important step is to look for an adequate vendor. Mind you, stores of big retail chains like Walmart and GNC do not stock kratom. Due to the frequently changing laws of kratom, they may be holding back because of the potential legal implications. On the other hand, while you will find kratom products in local stores such as gas stations, smoke shops, and specialty stores, they are not always recommended. 

It is common knowledge that some of them engage in dubious practices such as infusing non-kratom chemical substances in their kratom products (which is deemed dangerous and injurious to the health of consumers). Add that to the fact that kratom is not always their main product and many of the handlers don’t know much about the herb. 

The only exception here would be when the store stocks organic kratom wholesale products from a reputable vendor. Among the top kratom vendors of organic kratom products is WayMoreNaturals.
