Maine may be the setting for most of Stephen King’s horror novels, but there’s nothing scary about the state’s Kratom laws. Therefore, whether you’re looking for lighthouses or trying to catch a glimpse of Pennywise, you won’t have to worry about losing access to Mitragyna speciosa.
Kratom is legal in Maine. But back in 2017, state lawmakers almost classified mitragynine as a Schedule W controlled substance. An outcry from activists and the Botanical Education Alliance convinced legislators to drop mitragynine from the list before the bill passed. This reversal of opinion has since gone even further, with lawmakers currently considering the Kratom Consumer Protection Act.
Maine’s three biggest cities – Portland, Lewiston, and Bangor – have fewer than 135,000 combined residents. Tourism helps sporadically boost these numbers, especially when horror fans descend upon Bangor to look for Stephen King.
If you happen to be in the northern half of the state, it’ll be difficult to find Mitragyna speciosa in-person. Additionally, choosing a reputable online vendor to buy Kratom from is the best way to get consistent quality.
Maine doesn’t have a big online Mitragyna speciosa presence. However, there are a few well-known vendors that ship to Maine from nearby states. Let’s take a look at some of your best, and closest, options.
This Portland, ME vendor hand delivers Mitragyna speciosa to buyers in the Portland area. Their service is so popular that they often have a delivery queue up to three hours long. Customers can choose from four strains: Green Maeng Da, White Maeng Da, Red Vein Bali, and Super Green Malaysian. The pricing guide lists every strain at 50 cents per gram, but be sure to verify this while placing your order.
Re-Leaf, LLC is another Maine-based Kratom eRetailer. They set themselves apart from other vendors by taking a different sales approach. Rather than showing the strains, they have customer categories like The Stress, The Work Day, and The Focus. After making your selection, a staff member will hand-select a 50-gram bag for you. Re-Leaf offers a satisfaction guarantee in case you don’t end up getting what you want.
Based out of Vermont, this popular vendor provides same-day shipping. Their selection includes a nice mixture of common and rare strains such as Yellow Matahari, Sumatran Superior, and Super Green Borneo. Major Kratom earned a nomination for Best Kratom Vendor, and the staff does a lot of activist work to help keep Kratom legal on the East Coast.
Another East Coast vendor, Red Devil Kratom’s base of operations is in New York. They sell Kratom in multiple formats: powder, crushed leaf, UEI, and extracts. Some of their offerings are unique, including Green Goblin Signature Blend, Red Devil Signature Blend, and the rare Red Riau Kratom. You may also want to check out their exclusive King Kratom strains.
If you truly want the best and are open to waiting an extra day or two, we recommend checking out vendors outside of the East Coast, including Kratom Crazy, Kraken Kratom, and USA Botanicals.
