Legality of Kratom in Canada

Key Takeaway: Use of Kratom is legal in Canada. It can also be sold, but only for domestic consumption.

Laws on selling: Kratom is not allowed to be marketed as a consumable product, it has been approved for use in the medicinal sector. This has come as a considerable relief to therapeutic practitioners, patients, and the academic community.

Laws on consumption: Kratom cannot be used publicly, only at home and for medicinal purposes. This step ensures that kratom is not abused and used only for treatment purposes and not recreational purposes.

Science and research: Canada is one of the most welcoming when it comes to kratom. Currently, the Canadian government is proactively researching cannabis-like drugs to deliver the best pain-relievers. The country has a strong interest in understanding the positive effects of kratom on people’s health. Current legislature includes a preliminary study that shows the potential of kratom in the medical industry.
