Los Angeles has something for everyone, no matter how niche your tastes may be, and that’s especially true with kratom. Los Angeles has a thriving kratom scene, both in terms of shops and enthusiasts. We’ve listed our very favorite stores below for those of you lucky enough to live in the City of Angels.
Address: 838 North Broadway, Los Angeles, California 90012
About: Angie’s Boutique has been a staple of Downtown Los Angeles for nearly a decade — even before “DTLA” was the hottest part of town. They have an enormous selection of kratom, pipes, dab rigs, vaporizers and all manner of smoking accessories.
Why We Love It: Angie’s Boutique’s selection is one of the best in Los Angeles, which is saying something given the astounding number of smoke shops in the city. We’ve also found their staff to be among the most knowledgeable and friendly we’ve encountered, which again is impressive in La La Land, where everyone seems to be happy! Los Angelenos are lucky to have Angie’s Boutique.
Address: 8531 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood, California 90069
About: Teagardins has arguably the largest local selection of kratom from reputable vendors. They also offer a wide selection of CBD and vaping-related products and accessories.
Why We Love It: A quick look at Teagardin’s Yelp reviews makes clear that they take customer service seriously. They are also committed to education, and maintain a YouTube channel with outstanding kratom and CBD-related content. Lastly, did we mention that they just launched a same-day delivery service?!
Ark Smoke Shop
Address: 17609 Chatsworth Street, Granada Hills, California 91344
About: Ark has one of the city’s best kratom selections, and an impressive stock of related items like CBD and vape accessories. Ark specializes in the unique and hard-to-find, and has quite an eclectic selection.
Why We Love It: The owner, Mike Korlin, hand selects everything in the shop, and it truly is a reflection of his unique (but exquisite) tastes. The shop has an unmistakable sense of community, and the staff (or perhaps patrons) are always quick to lend a helping hand.
Smoke Stacks LA
Address: 4503 Centinela Avenue, Los Angeles, California 90066
About: Smoke Stacks LA has been the go-to source for kratom, CBD, vape and hookah supplies for West LA since 2014. Customers rave about the knowledgeable and helpful staff.
Why We Love It: Smoke Stacks LA is one of the few good choices in West LA for finding quality kratom, as most of the shops that carry it seem to be in the Valley or Korea Town. With LA traffic, closer options are paramount.
Hygeia Smoke & Vape Shop
Address: 1876 Pacific Coast Highway, Lomita, California 90717
About: Hygeia is the best place to find kratom in the South Bay. It also boasts a huge selection of CBD, vape and hookah products in a cozy, but well-stocked, store.
Why We Love It: Hygeia has one of the best loyalty programs in Los Angeles, and repeat customers can realize significant savings. And much like Smoke Stacks on the Westside, Hygeia is one of the few good options for the South Bay. And anything is better than sitting in traffic.
