Iowa might have more hogs than people, but that doesn’t mean that The Hawkeye State’s 3.1 million residents have to travel far to buy Kratom. This is especially true for those who live near Iowa’s biggest cities. Of course, it’s typically easier to buy high-quality Kratom from a trusted online vendor. If you run out between shipments, though, it’s important to know about which Kratom vendors in Iowa are nearby to help.
Is Kratom Legal in Iowa?
Despite legislative attempts in 2014, Kratom remains legal to buy, sell, and possess in the state of Iowa. This was due largely to a petition against the criminalization of Mitragyna speciosa. Interestingly, these same petitioners asked the state to enact regulations to help ensure that shops could only carry 100 percent pure Kratom. As of 2019, there are no regulations in effect yet.
