Trailblazing realtor and historian CT Conover fondly nicknamed Washington the Evergreen State. This is fitting for all those crazy about kratom as kratom itself is derived from Mitragyna speciosa, an evergreen tree indigenous to Southeast Asia.
Rainforest evergreens like Mitragyna speciosa are largely impervious to rough conditions and are highly adaptable to change. This adaptability and endurance is emblematic of Washington State as a whole.
The region is known for its massive glaciers, voluminous forests and tempestuous rain. This is a place of pine woods and hemlocks, a haven for hard scrap people who weather the storm and write about it so well, in grunge songs and in great American novels (think Maria Semple and Jim Lynch).
The many artists and ethnobotanical enthusiasts who populate this extraordinary state are into a lot of eclectic things. The Pacific Northwest is very much a niche area of the U.S. I refer you to the works of Gus Van Sant (My Own Private Idaho, Drugstore Cowboy) and the Sub Pop comix of Charles Burns.
Kratom is but one of the many bespoke interests that lots of Washingtonians share. And it is that interest that we hope to pique today with our comprehensive guide to buying kratom in the state.

Abso-frickin’-lutely! Kratom is legal in the state of Washington. Although some counties may have expressed concern about the Ayurvedic herb and its potential health risks since 2018, no laws have been passed to ban or otherwise restrict the sale, possession or consumption of Mitragyna speciosa and its alkaloids—mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, respectively.
After 10 Washington State residents fell ill from the 2018 kratom salmonella outbreak, some legislators in the region mulled the prospect of imposing a kratom ban, but advocates were instrumental in keeping the current laws from being amended. As such, users are free to purchase M speciosa in the Evergreen State.
