Keep reading to learn about the new ID regulations in some states for kratom, Delta 8, and Delta 9, and get a state-by-state refresher on the legality of these substances. This information is up-to-date as of October 2023. 

What States Require ID Verification for Kratom and Delta Cannabis Purchases?

Kratom and cannabis laws are always changing, particularly on a state-by-state basis. With many states passing new regulations, limitations, and other laws, many require consumers to be 18 or 21 before purchasing these products. 

So, is your state one of them?

States That Require ID for Kratom Purchases

While many states have regulations restricting kratom consumption by age, some are enforcing strict ID verification rules not only for in-person purchases but online sales as well. 

In fact, some of these states also threaten criminal charges with potential jail time and expensive fines for failing to verify ID, which is why reputable brands like require IDs if you purchase from these states. Not only that, but our payment processor requires ID from these states to ensure buyers abide by these new regulations.

Here are the states that require IDs and their limitations:

  • Florida: Must be 21 years old to buy kratom and testing and registering requirements 
  • Tennessee: Must be 21 years old to buy kratom with additional regulations for extracts 
  • Virginia: Must be 21 years old and requires a warning label
  • West Virginia: Must be 21 years old and requires a warning label with additional regulations for in-state manufacturer and sellers 

States That Require ID for Delta 8/9 Products

Most states require ID for in-person purchases of cannabis products, but a few are more strict and prompted our payment processor to also require ID for purchase. If you live in these states, don’t be alarmed when we ask for your ID, it just means you’re buying froma credible seller.

Ketum Superior Kratom requires ID for Delta Cannabis purchases in these states:

  • Florida
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Oklahoma
  • South Dakota
  • Tennessee
  • Alabama

Kratom is only illegal in a few states including:

  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • Indiana
  • Rhose Island
  • Wisconsin 

However, there are also local jurisdictions where kratom is illegal including:

  • Jerseyville, Illinois
  • San Diego, California
  • Sarasota County, Florida

Delta 9 is the cannabis compound that is most commonly associated with cannabisa nd unlike Delta 8, it doesn’t fall into a gray area where it’s technically legal. While some brands bypass the laws by selling products with under 0.3 percent Delta 9, it’s easier to tell you where it’s legal above that threshold than to tell you where it’s illegal.
