Is Kratom Legal in Alaska in 2024?

Exploring State Kratom Laws

Referred to as the “Last Frontier,” Alaska is known for its vast wilderness, scenic views, and the unique individualism of its citizens. Kratom enthusiasts will be thrilled to learn that this free-spirited approach continues to impact Alaskan life. As of 2024, kratom is legal and unregulated in the state. 

Many states, including Colorado and Texas, have passed recent legislation to mandate safety standards and regulations within the kratom industry. However, Alaska continues to allow kratom products to be sold without guidelines in place. 

Let’s take a look at kratom in Alaska, anticipated legal developments, and more to guide fans of the botanical on their journeys.

Alaska and kratom’s legality 

Neither advocacy groups nor kratom protestors are publicly active in Alaska. Although some states hotly debate the benefits and risks of the botanical, Alaska has not seen a huge push in arguments from either side. 

In 2020, the state’s Controlled Substances Advisory Committee did address the possibility of regulating kratom as a controlled substance. However, the committee agreed that more research and exact language surrounding kratom was needed.

As of 2024, it seems that kratom will remain legal and unregulated in Alaska for the foreseeable future. However, it’s always a good idea to stay up-to-date on trends and information before purchasing kratom products — breakthrough scientific studies may be published, and laws can change at any time. 

AKA: Kratom advocacy and awareness

The American Kratom Association (AKA), the leading U.S. organization for kratom advocacy and awareness, stands in full support of nationwide regulations that would mandate kratom vendors to adhere to quality and safety standards. 

The AKA believes raising kratom awareness and public education is paramount to the enjoyment of the botanical, and provides access to resources for both kratom beginners and seasoned users.  

The kratom curious can find a guide to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice Standards) Qualified Vendors, which includes MIT45, on the AKA website to ensure they’re purchasing from reputable brands and receiving quality products.

The organization’s advocacy could lead to kratom safety regulations in every state, including Alaska.   

The proposed federal Kratom Consumer Protection Act (KCPA)

For the past several years, the U.S. Congress has been considering federal kratom legislation. The proposed bill, the KCPA (also referred to as S.3039) would establish an FDA task force committed to evaluating the safety of all kratom products and measuring the health benefits and risks of taking kratom.   

The KCPA would also require all kratom vendors to:

  • Obtain a vendor license to manufacture, distribute, and sell kratom products
  • Ensure the purity of all kratom products (some disreputable brands currently include dangerous additives, such as heavy metals, in their available products)
  • Place transparent and accurate labeling on every kratom product

The KCPA could allow kratom enthusiasts peace of mind as they enjoy legally purchased products as it will ensure universal quality and safety standards within the national kratom industry.

Purchase kratom online

Why purchase kratom products online?

Although kratom products in Alaska may be available for purchase in physical locations such as convenience stores, specialty shops, and Kava bars, it’s tough to discern the quality of the product or the reputation of the brand you’re purchasing. 

As Alaska doesn’t have many bustling urban areas, you may also have to drive a great distance to buy kratom in person. However, quality kratom brands often feature an online store on their websites.   

The online products featured by brands like MIT45 include detailed product descriptions, recommendations for beginners, guaranteed kratom purity, and can be shipped quickly and easily.      

Where is kratom legal in the U.S.?

Kratom’s legality and regulated status varies from state to state. Therefore, it’s wise to frequently check the state laws before making a purchase or using kratom. This state-by-state legality guide is a great basic reference tool, and a quick internet search should also provide any needed answers.

Kratom FAQ 

What is kratom?

Kratom is a botanical used for multiple purposes all over the world. Kratom products are harvested from the leaves of a tropical tree native to Southeastern Asian countries, including Malaysia and Thailand. The kratom tree is part of the coffee family and is commonly referred to by its botanical name, Mitragynia speciosa.

In its native regions, kratom has been used by local cultures for centuries. Locals may brew kratom leaves into teas, chew them, or smoke them, and often include kratom in spiritual ceremonies.

Available kratom products are also harvested from the tree’s leaves and use strains based on different stages of the leaf growth cycle. Reputable vendors sell pure, unadulterated kratom often named for the strains used.

Does kratom have health benefits?  

Although breakthrough scientific kratom research continues, medical evidence for kratom’s health benefits has not yet been found. However, many enthusiasts share the personal benefits they’ve experienced as a result of taking kratom. 

As is true with any botanical use, it’s important to begin the kratom journey equipped with knowledge. Look for high-quality products with transparent labeling and ingredients before taking kratom. The potential benefits of kratom may include:

  • Calming effects
  • Comfort
  • Energy enhancement
  • Focus support
  • Relaxation
  • Uplifting feelings

Can kratom help my workouts?

Currently, there is no verifiable evidence that kratom products can help enhance your workouts or physical activity. Nevertheless, many fitness and kratom enthusiasts have reported the benefits of using kratom for pre-workout help.

FitCon Utah 2023 hosted an MIT45 vendor booth, and the fitness industry continues to explore the possible benefits of using kratom in conjunction with workouts. 

Can kratom have unwanted effects?

If kratom is misused or overused, it can have potentially adverse effects. It’s important to remember that medical histories and individual physical reactions may also impact your kratom experience.

Research the industry’s best and safest products before making a purchase, ensure products include honest labeling, and follow any brand recommendations and serving sizes. Avoid mixing kratom with other products that may create negative results.

The unwanted effects of misused or overused kratom can include:

  • Cramps
  • Dehydration
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

If you’re uncertain about how your medical history might impact your kratom journey, consult a medical professional before you begin taking kratom.
