Is Kratom Legal in Alaska?
Kratom is still relatively new in the western world, and while the growth and use has significantly proliferated over the past fear years, kratom is not well known in Alaska. However, just because there isn’t a lot of attention as of yet doesn’t mean that kratom will stay in the shadows forever, and with that laws and regulations will inevitably follow.
As of the writing of this blog, kratom is 100% legal in the state of Alaska, meaning it’s legal for people to own, grow, distribute, purchase, and consume kratom. Additionally, there haven’t been any proposed bills seeking to ban kratom nor either of the two active alkaloids, mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine.
In August of 2018, kratom made headlines in Alaska due to consumption of kratom that was contaminated with salmonella and affected two people. Which means that is imperative to audit your online kratom vendor and demand lab tested products with certificates of analysis, microbiology, and heavy metals. At SOL Botanicals, we show all our lab results here.
Where to Buy Kratom in Alaska?
Apart from the one report of the contamination of salmonella, there have been no other reported problems of people purchasing kratom in Alaska. Given the relatively obscure nature of the product, it may not be easily accessible in Anchorage, Juneau, Fairbanks, Eagle River, and Badger; which makes online the best source of quality kratom.
SOL Botanicals offers premium kratom that's been independently lab tested for high quality, potency, and effectiveness. Our commitment is to bring you the most complete plant profile nature has to offer, and continue advocating to keep kratom legal. Check out our kratom capsules and powders.
