An Important Update Regarding Kratom in Missouri

Missouri legislators have voted to approve the Kratom Consumer Protection Act (KCPA), a bill that establishes safety and quality guidelines for all kratom manufacturers and retailers operating in the state. In addition, the bill prohibits the sale of kratom to anyone under the age of 18. The passage of this new law marks an important turning point for kratom in Missouri. 

About the Missouri Kratom Consumer Protection Act 

The safety and quality guidelines of the KCPA apply to any business or individual that prepares, distributes, sells, or markets kratom products in the state of Missouri—whether the entity itself operates inside or outside the state. The bill requires the following: 

  • Sellers must disclose if any food product contains kratom 
  • Sellers may not market or distribute kratom that contains unnatural additives, contaminants, adulterants, scheduled substances, or synthetic ingredients  
  • Sellers may not market or distribute kratom products that contain more than 2% of the alkaloid 7-hydroxymitragynine
  • All kratom product labels must accurately list the mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine concentrations
  • Nobody under the age of 18 may purchase kratom in Missouri 

In effect, the new law mandates lab testing for all kratom powders, kratom capsules, and other kratom products—

as accurate third-party lab testing is the only way to confirm alkaloid concentrations and definitively demonstrate that there are no adulterants or contaminants in the product. 

Why the KCPA Is Good News for Kratom in Missouri

Missouri is actually the eighth state to adopt the Kratom Consumer Protection Act. Other states include Utah, Oregon, Arizona, and Colorado. Organizations like the American Kratom Association (AKA) and the Botanical Education Alliance (BEA) have been pushing for this legislation nationwide in an effort to improve safety standards and protect the rights of kratom buyers. 

While some states like Alabama and Vermont have gone so far as to ban kratom over a perceived lack of safety, the KCPA instead establishes safety standards to ensure that dangerous kratom products are kept off shelves while the rights of buyers are still protected. 

So Is Kratom Legal in Missouri

Yes, kratom is legal in Missouri so long as you’re over the age of 18 and purchase from an authorized vendor that adheres to the terms of the KCPA. Vendors who violate the law may be fined or barred from conducting further business in the state, but adult consumers can now buy kratom with greater confidence and assurance. And that’s a win for all of us.
