Is Kratom Legal in Kansas?

Across the US, kratom is subject to varying laws and restrictions. The good news is, kratom is completely legal to purchase and use in Kansas. However, it’s important that kratom enthusiasts in Kansas remain knowledgeable about any changes in law or legislation pertaining to the botanical.  

In the past, the state legislature has squashed bills that would have banned the use of kratom. In 2023, the Kratom Consumer Protection Act (KCPA) was under review in Kansas but ultimately failed to pass. Nevertheless, other potential legislation could change how kratom products are regulated.  

Let’s take a look at the legality of kratom in Kansas, anticipated future legal developments, and more.

Kansas and kratom’s legality

Kansas and kratom’s legality

Although kratom is universally legal in Kansas, most physical stores that sell kratom products are found in urban areas, such as Kansas City. Verified and reputable kratom vendors, such as MIT45, also have online stores that feature a wide array of products for sale for kratom beginners and seasoned users alike. 

How kratom’s future legal status may be impacted in Kansas

In 2023, state representative John Eplee (R), a physician, sponsored the Kratom Consumer Protection Act — a bill wildly supported by top kratom vendors and the American Kratom Association (AKA) that would have regulated the sale of kratom products and enforced industry safety regulations. 

The KCPA has been presented to the US Congress as a possible federal act but has failed to pass yet. On the state level, the bill wasn’t passed in Kansas in 2023, but an amended version of the bill was introduced on the House floor in 2024. 

As the Kansas City Star reported, the bill would have allowed kratom to be classified as a natural food product but would allow universal regulations prohibiting the sale of contaminated kratom products and prohibit sales to anyone under the age of 18. 

What is the Kratom Consumer Protection Act (KCPA)?

The Kratom Consumer Protection Act (also known as S.3039) would mandate a dedicated FDA task force to establish the health benefits and risks, and the safety of, all kratom products available for purchase. 

This act would also require accurate labeling, purity of kratom products, and licensing for all kratom vendors. If the KCPA eventually passes on a federal level, it will standardize nationwide kratom practices and allow kratom enthusiasts assurance of the safety and purity of the products they legally purchase.

American Kratom Association a kratom advocacy group that promotes kratom education

AKA Kratom Advocacy and Awareness

The American Kratom Association (AKA) is the leading kratom advocacy group and promotes kratom education, public awareness, and quality in kratom products. AKA fully supports the KCPA and believes that federal regulations of kratom could help increase vendor safety and popularize the use of the botanical.

The AKA website features a list of GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice Standards) Qualified Vendors, including MIT45, which can help those just beginning their journey with kratom to know which brands are reputable, thorough, and honest in their product labeling and promotion. 

This advocacy group supports the lifting of kratom bans and promotes safe kratom use in every state, including Kansas.   

FAQ about Kratom

How can I find out if kratom is legal in my state?

If you aren’t sure of the kratom laws in your state, it’s extremely important that you research these before making an online purchase or a purchase in another state. You can reference the state legality guide listed above, or search for kratom in your state online. 

Kratom is widely available in some states and regulated or banned in others. If kratom is not yet legal in your state, you could face severe criminal penalties if you purchase it anyway. However, in the states where kratom is legal, you can purchase it online, in a physical store, or enjoy kratom products in a social setting such as a kava bar. 

The state kratom laws and regulations change frequently, so it’s a good idea to check if your state allows kratom sales and use.  

What is kratom? 

A tropical tree native to Southeast Asia, kratom (known botanically as Mitragyna speciosa), is a member of the coffee family. 

For centuries, local cultures have used kratom leaves to chew, smoke, and brew into teas. The plant has also been integrated into religious or spiritual ceremonies. The three main strains of kratom — white, green, and red — signify the stage of kratom leaf growth and each can be used for a variety of benefits.  

What are the potential benefits of kratom?

Depending on the strain and strength of the kratom you use, you may find your kratom experience includes varying benefits. Potential benefits of using kratom may include comfort, energizing and uplifting feelings, relaxation, and soothing and calming experiences.

Does kratom have any negative effects?

Too much of a good thing can always potentially lead to negative unwanted effects. Kratom research is ongoing and its potential unwanted effects are still being studied. However, everyone’s body reacts differently — even to botanicals.

It’s important that you research kratom vendors to ensure you’re purchasing pure products, look for transparent ingredient labeling, and follow any suggested serving sizes. You may want to avoid taking other products that could have harmful interactions with kratom as well.

Some of the possible unwanted effects of taking too much kratom include fatigue, nausea, dehydration, headaches, and vomiting.

As you begin your kratom journey, you may want to consult a medical professional if you’re not sure how kratom may specifically impact you. You should always start with a beginner-friendly kratom product to understand the benefits or negative impacts you may experience.
