Yes, Kratom is legal in Anchorage, Alaska, United States of America.
Kratom, mitragyna speciosa, for people finding this page for some reason other than the legal status of the kratom plant, is an Indonesian herb that has medicinal properties. As the most populous city in Alaska, we determined this would be a good place to start, as well as relevant to anybody that is traveling to or from Alaska, or happens to be living there, or visiting friends, or family for any reason.
Like other cities in the state of Alaska, kratom, to date (and we’ll update this should it change) are we familiar with any existing, or previously proposed or passed legislation, bylaw, city ordinance or any other kind of legal ruling that would ban, criminalize, regulate, or otherwise limit access to kratom for adults. We’re always happy when this is the case, and we reckon given Alaska’s mildly libertarian tendencies, we’ll continue to see a hands off approach to kratom regulation in our most Northern US’ State.
Anchorage is home to just over 400,000 people, all of which cope with cold, and long days of daylight, and long days of no light. Of these 400,000 people, the live within the city limits, but Anchorage does have sprawl, and in that space, it eats up smaller neighborhoods, and districts that may have different bylaws, or ordinances that differ from the city at large.

Presently, kratom is legal in all cities, boroughs, neighborhods, and districts in Alaska, including Anchorage and the neighboring Matanuska-Susitna Borough. But local and regional legislaiton can change rapidly, as we’ve seen with kratom laws being passed in some locales with little to no community discussion. We encourage community members that enjoy kratom tea, and expect they will continue to use it long into the future, to be appraised of your local communities legislative body in order to avert a situation like the one linked in the sentence above from happening in Anchorage, Alaska, or any of it’s other cities.
