Kratom Legality in Texas: Top Places to Buy Locally in Houston

September 24, 2018 Articles, Kratom Research

To the online user, obtaining quality kratom powder might seem like finding a needle in a haystack. After all, there are more than 300 kratom vendors in the United States online, most of whom operate online stores where customers can purchase damn near any strain they’re looking for.

But not everybody wants to order from a website which is why you’ll come across a number of head shops and smokeshops that stock kratom brands.

As we’ve discussed before, kratom legality varies from state to state. In some states, such as Florida, it is legal across much of the state but restricted in certain municipalities. For instance, legislation has been passed which bans the use or sale of Kratom in Sarasota County.

So, you might be wondering if similar legislation has placed restriction on Kratom possession in the Lone Star State. Well, brother, I’ve got you covered!

IS KRATOM LEGAL IN TEXAS?

As of January of this year, Kratom is legal without any restriction in the state of Texas. This means that Kratom is legal in Austin, Kratom is legal in Houston and Kratom is legal all across the board. No legislation has been introduced to pass a Kratom ban in Texas.

This is the right move on the part of Texas lawmakers as it reflects the libertarian spirit of the state and respects the personal liberty of its citizens. The state appreciates the sundry advantages that the Mitragyna speciosa (read: Kratom) plant may offer.

As the Kratom community already knows, Kratom is believed to possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antidiarrheal properties in addition to a host of other purported benefits. Its effects have been enjoyed by the native people of Southeast Asia for centuries and Westerners have been using it for decades to boost their energy, relax after a hard day’s work or catch a few Zzzs before the rooster comes a-callin’.

Many Texans are staunch Kratom advocates. In Dallas, dispensary-style boutique owners have taken up the fight to prevent the DEA and the FDA from banning Kratom. Elsewhere, online vendors have set up shop on a local level.

PROPER USE OF KRATOM

Our site makes no claims about Kratom use or its potential effects, nor do we suggest that it is meant for human or animal consumption. That being said, the Kratom community has been more than vocal about the relief they have received from burning Kratom.

This aromatic herb has been used by those suffering from Fibromyalgia, chronic back pain, Rheumatoid Arthritis, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), depression, anxiety, night shift work disorder, insomnia, CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and more.

Those with experience have posited that a moderate dose of Kratom is anywhere between 2 and 4 grams of Kratom powder and most in the community agree that anything more than 9-10 grams is dangerous. A high dose is generally considered to be within the range of 7-9 grams.

Those who want to avoid Kratom hangover, tolerance or addiction are usually advised to stick to moderate doses and to cycle those doses, taking breaks throughout the week. Daily dosage is not recommended and countless Kratomites have seen just how detrimental chronic use can be.

Kratom withdrawal symptoms are no joke; they include everything from agitation, restless legs, agitation, insomnia and diarrhea to stomach cramp, headaches, sweating, skin rashes and irregular heartbeat.

WHY BUYING ONLINE IS THE BETTER CHOICE
