Kratom, a member of the coffee family, is a plant that grows naturally in parts of Southeast Asia. It’s been used for centuries as a form of pain management, as well as an energy booster in low doses. In higher doses, it causes a euphoric, sedative-like effect that comes on fast and can last for up to an hour. Kratom is currently legal in the U.S. but because of it’s controversial nature, it can be difficult to find. If you, like many others are wondering where you can find safe Kratom locally then have no fear, there are a few places that you can go.
Smoke shops frequently carry high demand products because it helps boost profit on items other than glassware and smoking paraphernalia. While this can be a good place to find Kratom, there are a few things to watch out for.
The smoke shop may carry Kratom but they might not know much about it. As I mentioned earlier, smoke shops carry high demand items because it will bring in more money. For many smoke shops though, that is where the product knowledge ends. They may have no idea what kind of product they’re carrying, what the strain is like or if it is even a pure product.
If you decide to take this route make sure to ask if you can try it first, and if you get any weird feelings about the place or the product, leave and find another place to buy. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Like all things, Google is a great resource when searching for Kratom. Simply search for ‘buy Kratom’ or ‘Kratom near me‘ and you will find sources both online and locally. I actually found Kratom at the local dispensary that I visit on google and I didn’t even know they sold it.

As the FDA has slowly been cracking down on Kratom, no all states allow the purchase or use of the substance so this may also be a good place to go if you happen to live in a state that doesn’t allow it.
Ultimately, Kratom, like any drug, is something that you want to know what you are getting. It also has varying effects at different doses. Make sure that you know what you are getting before trying a lot and make sure that you are buying from reputable sources. If your state doesn’t allow the purchase of Kratom, try to avoid smoke shops because it’s probably not pure Kratom and you may be getting a synthetic version which may have different effects from the real thing. Stay safe and follow this guide and you’ll be well on your way to finding the best sources of Kratom near you.
