People often think that I’m joking when I say that Florida is one of the greatest places to buy kratom. Considering that the Sunshine State forbids its citizens to fart in public after 6pm on Thursdays (again, I’m not joking), it would seem unlikely that kratom would be accepted.
The archaic legislation restricting Ye Olde Flatulence is far from the only weird law that’s lifestyle-prohibitive in the region. In Sarasota, where kratom is currently illegal under local statute, it is against the law to sing in a public place while wearing a swimsuit.
So why, then, do I tell people that it’s cool to be crazy for kratom in the City Beautiful?
Because it’s one of the most attractive destinations for kava bars, kick ass music and chill vibes. And there’s kratom galore!

With the exception of Sarasota County, kratom and its key alkaloids—mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine—are legal to buy, sell and consume in Florida State. Although some communities have pondered whether to regulate it, it remains unrestricted as of the first quarter of 2020.
While this Ayurvedic herb has been banned in some states, it is legal in most U.S. states and can be found in a growing number of independently-owned stores.
As a matter of fact, kratom may be more prevalent in Orlando than it is in any other American city. As of this writing, there are approximately 60 tobacconists and headshop owners selling Mitragyna speciosa in the city limits. And that’s not even counting the area’s many five-star nightspots.
The following is a list of the highest rated tobacco shops and/or convenience stores in the City Beautiful. If you feel like meeting seasoned kratom enthusiasts who know the different between Red Bentuangie and White Sumatra, these are the stores you’ll want to visit:
MR. MOJO’S SMOKE SHOP AND VAPE SHOP—These awesome Oak Ridge digs feature a Rasta-fied awning, a 4.9-star rating (among more than 100 customer reviews) and excellent prices. There’s a reason they’ve been called the best smoke shop in Orlando.
As one customer pointed out, “Every time I go in, I get great customer service as well as great prices on products that cant be compared anywhere else ! It’s a comfortable setting and great music.”
ORLANDO SMOKE SHOP FLORIDA MALL—The name might be generic, but the selection is anything but. This Orange County mainstay has nearly 730 reviews on Google with a 4.9-star rating. Their CBD and kratom products span everything from salves to cheap kratom extract.
RED DRAGON SMOKE SHOP – METROWEST—From CBD hemp flower to jumbo packs of kratom capsules, these cats have something for everyone. And they have always offered it at a reasonable price and with plenty of guidance. First-time users will love chatting with the knowledgeable staff about the differences between strains. That’s why they, too, have enjoyed a 4.9-star rating among their loyal customer base.
These are some of the top runners-up when you’re in a pinch and you need some premium kratom powder ASAP:
As I mentioned earlier, it’s not all humidors and paraphernalia shops for the people of the City Beautiful. Orlando residents and tourists alike can visit a plethora of hoppin’ nightspots for a great time. If you’re one of those users who brews kratom tea to feel more sociable, you’ll find no shortage of good hangs in Downtown Orlando.
Drink and think with your fellow kratom connoisseurs at one of Orlando’s premier kratom and kava bars. Whether you hit up Kava Cove Lounge in Winter Park or explore the oasis that is Island Root Kava Bar, you’ll become fast friends with the patrons and staff.
Here are the top herbal haunts in and around this Orange County metropolis:
Each of these eclectic apothecaries provide variety, fast service, ambiance and more. Kava Cove Lounge is known for its engaging bar games while Pacific Rootz is praised for its authentic décor and exotic kratom experience.
Although it is relatively safe and secure to purchase kratom in an Orlando smoke shop, you never really know what you might end up with. There are frequent reports of consumers getting burned by tobacco shop proprietors and it’s not always the proprietor’s fault.
Since kratom is an unregulated substance, kratom brands are under no obligation to provide detailed information about the origins of their products or the purity of the same. Consequently, customers can end up purchasing stuff that hasn’t been properly tested for contaminants.
In the last few years, we have seen users hospitalized after falling ill from kratom usage. This has often been the result of bad drug interactions, but sometimes it’s the result of shady business practices. For instance, the Krypton brand that was once found in nearly every smoke shop was found to contain 0-desmethyltramadol, a dangerous and potentially life-threatening synthetic painkiller.
What’s more, shop owners often receive their kratom as part of a larger shipment of goods from a wholesale distributor. Because they are not dealing directly with a trustworthy source, they have no way of knowing where the plant matter came from or how it was prepared.
If you are one of hundreds of health-conscious kratom consumers, you owe it to yourself to practice some patience and order online. Buying from a trusted online kratom vendor may seem inconvenient when compared to picking some up on the spot whenever you want, but consider the trade-off.
When buying kratom online, you can usually pay extra for expedited shipping, so you’ll get your package in a matter of days instead of weeks. More importantly, trusted suppliers disclose lab results that guarantee you are getting unadulterated Mitragyna speciosa.
The following is a short list of our top picks for trusted kratom sellers of 2020:
Each of these vendors has been thoroughly vetted and have been found to stock quality kratom leaf at an affordable price point.
No matter which route you decide to take, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from when visiting the Renowned Land. Just be sure to ask questions and always guarantee you’re getting what you paid for. Be safe, be smart and be well.
