With a population of approximately 389,255, Wichita is the largest city in the Sunflower State. Hundreds, if not thousands, of its residents are into ethnobotanicals. Kratom is chief among the herbs they are passionate about.
In recent years, the scrutiny surrounding this mysterious member of the coffee family of plants has intensified. News outlets and government institutions have sought to demonize the herb and restrict public access to kratom and its alkaloids.
If you’re one of the many citizens living in the south-central part of the state, you may be wondering where Kansas stands on the subject of the Mitragyna speciosa tree and its illustrious plant matter. In today’s post, we’ll talk all about the laws and availability of kratom products in and around glorious Doo-Dah.

As of 2020, kratom is legal in the state of Kansas despite the best efforts of Alexandra Blasi, Executive Director of the Kansas Board of Pharmacy. In 2018, M(r)s. Blasi and her colleagues sought to update the list of controlled substances act to include kratom and its alkaloids—mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine.
Had it been successful, the bill would have amended Schedule I as outlined in SB282, effectively codifying kratom as a synthetic drug. Fortunately, SB282 faced widespread opposition, both by Kansas citizens and at least one Texas medical doctor.
Murray A. Holcomb, M.D., Georgetown, TX, testified to the safety and efficacy of kratom and suggested that evidence exists which supports his claim. This and other comments were recorded by the Committee on Health and Human Services, but the hearing was closed by the Chairperson without any amendments being passed.
Thanks to the assistance of proponents from across the state, kratom remains legal to sell, possess and consume today. As such, there are numerous retailers offering M speciosa in Wichita.
There is an estimated 30+ stores selling Mitragyna speciosa products across Wichita. These items are offered in a variety of forms. You can get your hands on everything from kratom capsules and kratom extracts to liquid kratom shots and kratom chewing gum.
The following is a comprehensive list of the top shops in Doo-Dah:
The aforementioned shops have a poor reputation among consumers, some of whom have taken their business elsewhere permanently as a result of substandard customer service.
South-central Kansas residents are no doubt familiar with the allure of “heading South” to the Texas border known as Cowtown. Wichita Falls is a conduit between the Lone Star State and the Sunflower State.
Several top kratom brands are offered exclusively to affiliates in Texas with many of them represented by local tobacconists in Wichita Falls, TX.

The following are the top-rated spots for speciosa in the city:
There are a multitude of different strains on the global market, at least some of which are hybrids. While most Mitragyna speciosa powder is made from Rifat kratom, others are grown from cultivars that were made by employing a meticulous grafting process.
If you’re new to the industry, you’ve probably heard a lot about “veins.” This refers to the veins of the Mitragyna speciosa leaf, from which the plant gets its many unique properties. These veins contain a wealth of distinct alkaloids and flavonoids.
Different veins contain different concentrations or levels of these alkaloids which is why each strain has its own very specific uses and effects. For instance, some veins produce “daytime” strains (more invigorating powder that is suitable for daytime use) while others produce “nighttime” strains (inducing mild drowsiness, making for a restful and restorative sleep).
Here are the five best kratom strains sold in Wichita, KS:
Each of these strains are renowned for being extremely potent and undeniably exotic. And as you can see, there is something for everyone here. While Maeng Da or “Pimp Kratom” is a potent nighttime choice that’s infamous for its restorative aroma, Green Hulu Kapuas is a robust daytime strain that’s ideal for those who need a strong pick-me-up before hitting the gym.
All of these and more are easily accessible, both in brick-and-mortar shops and via e-commerce sites that specialize in 100% pure Mitragyna speciosa products.
As with any other state, we strongly recommend that residents of Kansas do some research before buying from neighborhood stores. Smoke shops have a bad track record for stocking potentially dangerous products including Krypton, the kratom brand that was found to contain a dangerous synthetic drug.
