Is Kratom Legal in Colorado in 2024?

Colorful Colorado is known for its majestic mountain vistas, healthy outdoor living, and rugged individualism. Thus, the state draws people, including kratom enthusiasts, from all around the world and all walks of life through the appeal of natural living.

Although kratom’s legal status in Colorado has been hotly debated over the years, the botanical remains permissible for purchase, sale, and use. However, regulations passed by the state legislature will go into effect in July 2024. 

Kratom legality in Colorado

Currently, kratom is legal in Colorado, but it’s important to remember that as extensive kratom research continues, all laws and regulations are subject to change. Let’s take a closer look at the new kratom regulations in Colorado, and how they can impact kratom users.  

Kratom’s current legal status in Colorado

In 2023, the Colorado state legislature passed a bill prohibiting kratom distribution, sales, and use by anyone under the age of 21. A valid ID is required to purchase kratom products. 

In 2022, Colorado drafted SB22-120 into law. This bill goes into effect in July 2024 and provides the additional following kratom guidelines to protect kratom users:

  • Kratom vendors are prohibited from preparing, selling, distributing, and advertising products that include fentanyl or other controlled substances.
  • Kratom vendors must include labels on each product that includes brand name and address and a transparent list of all ingredients.
  • Fines and civil infraction charges to any kratom vendor who sells products to anyone under the age of 21, or who violates the above regulations. 

Anticipated developments in Colorado kratom regulations

After years of legislative debate surrounding kratom, SB22-120 sets positive regulations on the botanical in Colorado. Thus, in lieu of a federal ban on kratom or new consumer-prohibitive guidelines, no developments are anticipated to occur in Colorado kratom regulations.

Nevertheless, it’s a good idea to remain informed on any new Colorado kratom updates.  Golden Monk is dedicated to keeping kratom customers from all walks of life posted on relevant information about the botanical. 

The American Kratom Association (AKA) is another great resource to discover new scientific breakthroughs and changes in kratom law. The AKA is the leading kratom advocacy, awareness, and educational organization in the U.S.

Kratom FAQ     

What is kratom?     

Kratom, also known by its botanical name, Mitragyna speciosa, is a tropical tree in the coffee family. The kratom tree grows in Southeast Asia, and is found in abundance in countries like Malaysia and Thailand.

For centuries, native cultures have used the leaves of the kratom tree in spiritual ceremonies and also used the leaves to brew into teas, chew, or smoke. Kratom products available internationally include capsules, gummies, liquid extracts, and powders, and are harvested from various stages of kratom leaf growth.   

Every kratom strain is signified by the color of the kratom leaf vein and its stage of growth. The three main strains of kratom found in powders, capsules, and other products include White Vein, Green Vein, and Red Vein.

The above state legality guide provides a broad overview of kratom guidelines across the U.S. and how state laws may differ. A general online search can also answer most specific questions about kratom in your state. 

Nevertheless, it’s important to remember that as scientific research on kratom advances and kratom public education grows, laws and regulations can change at any time.

What are the potential benefits of kratom?

Many kratom enthusiasts have shared extremely positive results from taking the botanical. Although these benefits are currently based on personal accounts, breakthrough kratom research continues worldwide, in academic institutions and research facilities.

A variety of factors, including personal medical history, kratom strain, and serving size, may influence the benefits a kratom user can experience. However, both beginning kratom users and seasoned enthusiasts have reported the following benefits:

  • Balanced experiences
  • Calming results
  • Comforting feelings
  • Energy enhancement
  • Relaxation
  • Support for mental focus
  • Uplifting experiences

Does kratom have any negative effects?

As with any botanical, the misuse or overuse of kratom can lead to negative effects. Similarly, a kratom product from a disreputable vendor may include dangerous additives such as heavy metals. However, the new Colorado legislation will prohibit vendors that don’t include transparent labeling or pure ingredients from selling or distributing their products.

Individual reactions may vary from person to person as well. Thus, it’s vital to follow any vendor recommendations and suggested serving sizes. Many kratom products may be sold as “beginner-friendly” or advertised “for the seasoned kratom user” — choose accordingly.

Research kratom brands and products before making a purchase to reduce the chance of negative results.

Possible negative effects of kratom may include:

  • Dehydration
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle cramps
