The Kratom Discrepancy: Legal or Illegal?

Updated: Apr 6, 2021

The simple answer, Kratom is legal in some US states, but not all. So, why is this?


As we have boasted on our site, Kratom is an herbal wonder indigenous to Southeast Asia and stems from the same botanical family as the coffee plant. Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) was initially used for pain relief and mood stabilization. Some researchers believe Kratom can be used as an alternative for Methadone, Buprenorphine and Vivitrol in medication-assisted therapies for opiate addiction. In other words, Kratom could reduce dependency on addictive and often deadly prescription painkillers (or even addictions to coffee and sugars which are oftentimes equally as addicting!)


However, #Kratom is not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, which causes hesitation in the market and in customers. Like any other herbal supplement, there is always potential to take advantage of the leaf powder's properties. Research continues to be conducted on Kratom's potential harms and benefits, spearheaded by the American Kratom Association, a Colorado-based advocacy and lobbying organization.


Through research and education, we hope the public can learn of the positive impact Kratom can have on our everyday lives when used appropriately.
