What is Kratom?
Kratom, or Mitragyna Speciosa, is a tree native to countries such as: Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, and Thailand. It is best known for the leaves which distribute over 40 different psychoactive compounds and alkaloids. Farmers harvest our Kratom leaves from these mature trees where they then begin the meticulous process of cultivation, drying, and crushing our raw Kratom leaves.
Where is Kratom illegal?
Kratom products are not legal in:

  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • California – City of San Diego and Oceanside
  • Florida – Sarasota County
  • Illinois – City of Jerseyville. Illinois also bans the sale of Kratom to minors under 18.
  • Indiana
  • New Hampshire – 18 and over only
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont

There are strict regulations against billing through, or shipping into any region where Kratom is banned. Kratom Lords actively enforces these restrictions to protect our customers, employees, and future of the entire Kratom community. If either the billing or shipping address contain an address from any of these locations, your transaction will not process and you will receive an error message. If it is just your billing address that is located in a banned location and you are not shipping there, contact us for options.

What is the best way to store Kratom?
Kratom is best stored in a cool and dark space. Kratom should be stored in an airtight container or the resealable bags we ship in. If stored properly, Kratom has a shelf life of two years before any degrading of potency will begin.
What is the shelf life of Kratom?
Kratom has a shelf life of two years if stored properly before it will start to lose any potency.

The sticker on your bag is the batch date and not the expiration date. You will have two years from the top date on the little white sticker on your bag.
We recommend that you store your kratom similar to coffee. Place in a dark and cool space. An airtight container or the resealable bags we ship in are recommended.
Will Kratom cause me to fail a drug test?
Kratom is not detectable on many standard drug tests such as a 5-panel drug test, but some kratom alkaloids can be identified on certain drug tests that involve urine or blood. There is also a drug test that specifically tests for Kratom. It is known as a 10-panel drug test. When using a 10-panel drug test the substance can be detected for up to 7 days after use but many variables can influence how long the drug can be detected in a person system including:

  • Fat percentage and body weight: Kratom is known to stay longer in the system of someone with heavier bodyweight.
  • A person’s age: Older people metabolize drugs more slowly than those who are younger.
  • Metabolic rate.
  • The amount of Kratom used
  • Other substances that may have been consumed: Combining drugs affects the rate they eliminate from your body.
  • Health problems.
  • Liver function: A person with liver disease may metabolize substances more slowly.

The tracking on my order shows delivered, but I can't find my order
If your tracking is showing that your package was delivered but you didn't receive it, we ask that you use the following steps.

  • Please check with your local mail carrier. They have to scan the package delivered and are your best source of information. They do take pride in your work and can GPS verify where the package was delivered. If left somewhere else they will attempt to retrieve it for you.
  • Please check with your neighbors as sometimes these packages get left on the wrong doorstep. Mail carriers do make mistakes.
  • Check with your local post office as there may have been an issue with the delivery and the package may be available for pickup.
  • We ask that you wait 24 hours after the order has been marked delivered to see if it does show up. It has been known that packages will mysteriously show up the next day.

If your none of these steps have located your package, the next step is to file a claim with Route, the shipping insurance company who insures our orders (Had to have selected this option during checkout). You can use the following link claims.route.com, the email that was sent to you after your order, or their IOS app to file the claim. They will either refund or replace the order for you.
