Is Kratom Legal?

This is a question that every kratom newbie asks before setting out on their adventure. And it is a valid one; you don’t want to be on the wrong side of the law.

For one, kratom is federally legal. However, things are not so clear-cut at the state level. Nevertheless, there are at least 44 states where kratom is fully legal. Although, in certain states, there are age restrictions and other regulations. But at least, kratom is legal there.

The 6 states where kratom is illegal are Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wisconsin. Further, there are certain cities where kratom is illegal, even when the rest of the state declares it as illegal. If you live in Denver, Colorado; Jerseyville, Illinois; San Diego, California; Sarasota Country, Florida; or Union Country, Mississippi, then you should be cautious because the local authorities in those cities have declared kratom illegal.

In every other place, you simply have to visit the kratom regulations to determine if there are any age-related restrictions and the likes.

Where to Buy Kratom

Many people, particularly beginners, try to buy their first organic kratom products from high-end retail chains such as GNC and Walmart. If you do, you’ll be left disappointed. These stores do not stock kratom, mainly because of the uncertainty surrounding the legality of kratom. Don’t be confused though, kratom remains fully legal federally and in all states of the US. However, these big companies try to shield themselves from any hiccups. Your options for buying kratom are limited to local stores and online stores.

Kratom products are generally sold in herbal supplement stores, smoke shops, gas stations, etc. In some states, you need to produce a valid ID that proves that you are of legal age to purchase kratom. Although, many local stores function as middlemen and sometimes engage in unwholesome practices to make sales. Therefore, it is often better to buy from online stores, which usually manufacture the kratom they sell. Indeed, WayMoreNaturals is a good example of such an online store. 

Which Kratom Products Should You Buy?

Regardless of the location, though, you should only buy kratom that was cultivated naturally, produced organically, and that has been lab-tested by a third-party laboratory and deemed all right.

Kratom leaves can be made into different products: powder, capsules, shots, tinctures, name it. However, what is important is that you are purchasing pure and unadulterated kratom. It has been noted in various studies that kratom does not really do well when mixed with other products, especially drugs or other toxic substances. Therefore, your kratom must be pure.

It should also have been grown organically. That is, without any additional chemicals, even pesticides or herbicides. While these chemicals may be widely used in agriculture, they have toxic materials that may be harmful to certain plants, including kratom. That’s why you need to stick with organic kratom products. 

The proof that a kratom product is pure and organic is its certificate of analysis from a third-party laboratory. This is issued after a lab test has been performed, proving that that particular kratom product is all right.
