Welcome to Colorado, home to the only place in America where the corners of four states meet, the world’s largest flat-top mountain, and the location of the highest city in the U.S sitting at over 10,000 feet high!
Is Kratom Legal in Colorado?
To answer this question right away, kratom is legal in the state of Colorado, except for the towns of Monument and Parker. On top of that the city of Denver, Colorado has restricted the use of kratom for human consumption. You may still purchase or sell it, as long as you label it correctly, with no advice on how or why to use it.
In 2017, the Denver Department of Public Health and Environment restricted the distribution and possession of kratom for human consumption within Denver City. They’ve stated that the deaths associated with kratom was the reason for that, however the deaths they’ve associated with kratom was not due to kratom in itself, there were many other causes and substances involved in these cases.
However, as a result, kratom packaging needs to be labeled accordingly. They’ve stated that labeling needs to include information about how it’s not intended for human consumption. Distributors must also list the potential dangers associated with possible kratom use. This gives a bad impression on kratom, making it appear on the same scale as alcohol and other drugs.
There were debates regarding the restrictions on kratom, stemming from the Libertarian party of Colorado publicly criticizing the government and speaking in favor of Kratom.
In 2019, both Monument and Parker decided to ban kratom sales within their towns.
Where to Buy Kratom in Colorado?
You can find many local herb, vape, head shops and even gas stations selling kratom in most cities of Colorado.
However, we recommend that you carefully decide where to purchase your kratom.
While these may be quick and more convenient ways of purchasing kratom, there are quite a few benefits of buying kratom online.
Gas stations and headshops don’t specialize in just kratom powders, so their inventory tends to sit around on the shelf, causing the powder to become an off tint of green or even brown in bad scenarios. This hurts the potency and taste of all kratom powders.
Online kratom vendors, especially shops like us, import kratom from the source which tends to be considerably higher-quality along with coming at a cheaper price. There are fewer people and steps involved in the process, keeping kratom more fresh when the buyer finally opens the bag.
On top of that, we here at GLAKratom are from Missouri, a state that fully supports and enacted the Kratom Consumer Protection Act. So you’ll be guaranteed to get a clean, unadulterated product that’s fresh and potent.
