Does Kratom Show up in Drug Tests?

SHORT ANSWER: Unless you are being screened specifically for kratom, it will not be detected in a standardized blood or urine test.

There are tests that can detect kratom but they are expensive, not very common and not used routinely for probation screening. However, if you live in a state where kratom is illegal, it is possible they will screen for it. If you are concerned, we suggest looking through the policies of your probation office or asking your probation officer.

With the rise in popularity of kratom, many people who have struggled with substance abuse and may have landed in hot water due to illegal drugs, are looking for a way out. Many opiate addicts have turned to the natural kratom leaf as a way to stay off opiates or manage chronic pain, anxiety and fatigue.

It is important to remind readers that Kratom is not an FDA approved supplement or medication and kratom vendors cannot recommend it for the treatment of any disease or symptom. That being said, there are hundreds of thousands of people who speak openly about their experiences with this plant.
