If you are interested in purchasing kratom, you may wonder how old do you have to be to buy kratom. The age limit varies from state to state and even from city to city. Most vendors will not sell kratom to someone under 18 or 21. You might also need to learn how to store kratom and how long it takes to stay fresh.
However, some cities have made it illegal for minors to buy or consume kratom. In the city of Franklin, Massachusetts, for example, kratom was banned in September of this year. This is despite the fact that kratom is legal in other states.
Kratom is a substance that can cause opioid-like effects. It is made from the leaves of a tropical tree grown in Southeast Asia. Its compounds bond to the mu-opioid receptors and produce sedative, opioid-like effects. People who use kratom regularly may experience withdrawal symptoms similar to opioid use, which can last several days or weeks.
Since kratom is a dietary supplement, it is not regulated by federal law. As a result, states can make their own laws regarding the sale and consumption of kratom. Currently, only six states have outlawed kratom.
However, the law is changing quickly. Many states have recently introduced bills that would regulate the sale of kratom. There are currently 19 states that are actively pursuing a KCPA bill.
Some states, such as New Jersey and Illinois, have passed laws limiting the sales of kratom to adults. Others, like New Hampshire, have attempted to ban it entirely. Other states, such as Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Ohio, are considering a kratom bill.
Despite the restrictions, kratom is still available for purchase. You can buy it from local stores, or online. Online sites are generally only permitted to sell to people aged 18 and older. However, it is important to read the regulations of the company you are purchasing from. A vendor who beats around the bush is likely a scammer.
Because of its potential to cause opioid-like effects, kratom is considered a dangerous drug. In some cases, a person can become addicted to kratom and require medical treatment. Therefore, you should talk to your doctor before beginning any dietary supplement. Likewise, you should also avoid using supplements that do not have a proven safety record.
One way to avoid becoming a victim of a kratom scam is to always purchase from reputable companies. Check third-party lab tests to ensure the quality of the kratom you are buying. While it is unlikely that a vendor will try to convince you to purchase kratom for someone else, a seller might try to push you to buy a product that is adulterated or of substandard quality.
In addition to federal regulation, many states have a law that prohibits the sale of kratom to underage buyers. For instance, Indiana defines kratom as a synthetic drug. Purchasing kratom for a person under 18 is a misdemeanor, and can lead to criminal charges.
Other states, such as Tennessee, have taken the position that it is against the law to sell kratom to anyone under 21. Regardless of the age restriction, it is illegal to purchase kratom in Alabama, Arkansas, and Washington, D.C.
