Kratom, an unauthorized herbal product that Health Canada says has the potential to “pose serious health risks when swallowed or inhaled” has been seized from two different retail stores in Edmonton.


In a news release issued on Tuesday, Health Canada said kratom was seized from a store called Jupiter on Whyte Avenue and another called Bogart’s Pipes and Papers on 132 Avenue, adding the product is illegal to sell without its authorization.
A Whyte Avenue store called Jupiter is one of two locations where Health Canada said it seized the unauthorized herbal product kratom.

According to Health Canada, kratom – which is derived from a southeast Asian plant – may have “narcotic and stimulant-like effects and has potential for abuse and dependence.” The agency said it can produce side effects like drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, seizures, liver toxicity and excessively rapid heartbeat.


Health Canada said the following kratom products were confiscated from the two shops:


Jupiter Maeng Da Kratom
Kratom Zone Bali Kratom Powder
Kratom Zone Horned Leaf Maeng Da Kratom Powder
Kratom Zone Maeng Da Kratom Powder
Kratom Zone Malay Kratom Powder
Kratom Zone Red Vein Kratom
Kratom Zone White Vein Kratom Powder


Any consumers who have bought or used the product are asked to stop using it and to consult with their doctor.

Health Canada says it is working with the Canada Border Services Agency to prevent kratom products from entering the country.
