Blue Lotus & Kanna: Legal Status in the US

As natural herbal remedies like Blue Lotus (Nymphaea caerulea) and Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum) continue to gain popularity for their unique effects, questions regarding their legal status in North America have become more frequent. Here’s what you need to know about the legality of these herbs in the United States, with a note on the situation in Canada.

Legal Status Across the U.S.: Blue Lotus and Kanna

Both Blue Lotus and Kanna are appreciated for their traditional uses and effects, ranging from mild sedation and euphoria to mood enhancement and stress reduction. Federally in the United States, these herbs are not classified as illegal and are legal to buy, sell, possess, and use in most states.

The Exception: Louisiana

In Louisiana, specific regulations restrict the sale and use of both Blue Lotus and Kanna due to their psychoactive properties. It's essential for those in Louisiana to adhere to these local laws to avoid legal issues.

Situation in Canada

Regarding Canada, the legal status of Blue Lotus is less explicitly defined. The herb is not listed under Canada's Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, suggesting it falls into a grey area depending on its intended use and marketing. Canadians interested in Blue Lotus should consult Health Canada's guidelines and potentially seek legal advice to ensure compliance with current regulations. The legal landscape is subject to change, and staying informed is key.

Our Position at Healing Herbals

We at Healing Herbals believe in the responsible use of herbal remedies, including Blue Lotus and Kanna. We strive to provide accurate and up-to-date information on the legal status of our products, encouraging our customers to use these herbs within the bounds of law and safety.


Blue Lotus and Kanna remain accessible in most of the United States, except for specific state restrictions like those in Louisiana.

As always, we advocate for informed and responsible use of all herbal remedies, emphasizing the importance of adhering to local laws and regulations.

Stay informed, stay legal, and most importantly, stay well.
