Valuable Tips to Follow When You Travel with Kratom

Check out these tips that will help you carry kratom legally and safely when you travel:

1. Know the local laws

Before you travel, you must do little research about the place you plan to visit and kratom-related regulations there. When you know the local laws, it will help you prepare for any question you might come across and ensure a stress-free experience.

2. Keep the original packaging 

When you travel, try to keep the original packaging intact. It shares a lot of information about what it is, the manufacturer, type of regulations the kratom is under, etc. The labels in the packaging may help validate legality of the product.

3. Do not try to hide it

When packing the kratom, pack it casually as you would do for any medication. Never try to disguise the substance as anything it is not or hide it in the luggage. This would make it look like something suspicious and illegal.

Ideally, you should carry it in your checked-luggage.

4. Prepare answers that the aviation authority will trust 

In most cases, you will not be questioned when you carry kratom on your trip. However, it is better to keep yourself prepared for any question you might come across.


Traveling with kratom is legal until you follow the laws and regulations of the country or state you plan to visit. Hopefully, this article will help with all information you need to travel safely and legally with kratom.
