Kansas has a history of passing some rather peculiar laws, whether we’re talking about prohibiting residents from sticking smoking pipes in their ears or limiting the times in which they are allowed to eat clam chowder (you read that right).

So, it would hardly be a shock to most good Grasshoppers to learn that state legislators aren’t exactly fans of kratom use. Despite the ever-growing number of American kratom users, many federal and state lawmakers have mulled a potential ban on the substance.

In 2018, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) sent letters to three kratom sellers, including one in Kansas City, warning about marketing the Mitragyna speciosa herb and any related products as a treatment or cure for any maladies.

These letters were sent just as the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) was mulling the prospect of designating kratom as a Schedule I controlled substance. At the time, a number of government officials were of the mind that the compound and its indole alkaloids pose a potential health risk.

Fortunately, this was not the final word on kratom and cooler heads have prevailed. The DEA delayed its once-imminent kratom ban in the wake of overwhelming public comment. Nevertheless, the FDA has since issued a public warning, urging citizens to avoid consumption of the Mitragyna speciosa’s plant matter.

Where does this leave Kansans who want to get their hands on some premium “ke thum?”

Let’s take a closer look!


The current kratom Kansas law is such that you can buy the Ayurvedic herb anywhere in the state and in many neighboring states.

Although legislation was proposed in 2018 which sought to add Mitragyna speciosa and its alkaloids—mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine—to the controlled substances list, state lawmakers removed kratom from the list before the bill was passed.

As of this writing, kratom remains legal across the Sunflower State and it can be purchased in multiple forms, both at local ma and ma shops and over the Internet.



As a matter of fact, you can pick up so-called “premium grade kratom” at a variety of stores throughout the Sunflower State. This includes tobacco shops, headshops, filling stations and convenience stores.

Those who wish to obtain 100% pure, quality kratom products can do so by purchasing bulk kratom powder from any number of e-commerce sites. Online kratom vendors cater to tens of thousands of consumers who wish to procure clean, lab-tested M speciosa plant matter.


There are no fewer than 36 stores selling speciosa products in the City of Fountains. Joints like the Funky Skunk and 7th Heaven perfectly compliment the regional jazz and blues vibe with their awesome atmosphere and eclectic collection of CBD hemp and mitra items.

Wichita and Wichita Falls are inseparable and so, too, is their local kratom scene. There are several places where one can find mitra tea in the area. The following is a list of the highest-rated spots in Doo-Dah:

No matter how many shops stock this incredible substance in your city or county, it’s always advisable to buy kratom online. You’ll be saving money, ensuring quality and avoiding any potential of contaminated product.

The top online kratom suppliers submit their kratom powder to third party laboratories for proper testing. This prevents against adulteration, and confirms the purity and potency of all plant material.

Here’s our short list of our favorite online sellers:

  • Meridian Botanicals
  • Mitragaia
  • PDO Botanicals (Pharmacy Dropout)
  • Phytoextractum
  • Urban Ice Organics (Natural Organix)


There are an estimated 15 million active Mitragyna speciosa users, many of whom live in states where kratom has been outlawed. For these folks, indulging in their Ayurvedic herb of choice means traveling across state lines to purchase their tea where it is still legal.

Due to the continued scrutiny by government officials and media outlets alike, the future of kratom legality remains precarious. With initiatives pending across the country, the laws governing its use are currently up in the air.

Non-profit organizations like the AKA (American Kratom Association) continue to work tirelessly to keep the plant legal. Those who wish to support such advocacy should visit their website and find out how they can help.

Assistance can be offered in a multitude of areas including monetary donations and online petitions. Users everywhere are urged to make their voices heard by contacting their local representatives.


If you live in the Sunflower State, you can buy, sell and consume Mitragyna speciosa freely and legally. Just make sure you check with law enforcement to ensure that you are in compliance with county regulations. Be safe, be smart and be well.
