Is Kratom Legal in San Diego County?

Kratom is an evergreen tree found in Southeast Asian countries, like Indonesia and Thailand. In these areas of the world, kratom leaves have been used for both religious ceremonies and medicinal purposes with great success. Leaves are usually chewed fresh or chopped up to be cooked into a dish such as Javanese Kueh Tutu (fried rice cake). As interest in this natural herb grew worldwide, it became increasingly popular within U.S borders thanks to its ability to produce euphoric feelings when consumed either powdered or liquid form.



Interested in more information about kratom?

Consider checking out The American Kratom Association (AKA). The AKA is dedicated to protecting the rights of all Americans to legally consume safe kratom to better manage their overall health and well-being.

​The American Kratom Association has 5 main goals:

  1. Support Consumers. We believe many political and private entities don't make the needs of the consumer and constituents a priority. Our goal is to change that.

  2. Educate. Kratom has many beneficial purposes and is an all-natural alternative. Our goal is to educate all Americans—from potential consumers to regulators and everyone in between.

  3. Amplify. We represent thousands of Americans that each have a story to tell. We believe the current environment in the United States often does not listen to individual voices and together we will make our voice heard.

  4. Global Awareness. We hope to demonstrate responsible use and practical knowledge other countries may study when considering Kratom legislation.

  5. Protect Natural Resources. Kratom is a precious natural resource. We support and advocate for sustainable harvesting techniques and reforestation efforts.
