Kanna, or Sceletium tortuosum, is a succulent plant that has been used historically by the indigenous populations of South Africa, where it is touted for its many medicinal benefits and mood boosting properties. Kanna contains mesembrine alkaloids that act on the serotonin reuptake system, similarly to prescription SSRI medication. Users take it for its mood elevating, energizing, and slightly euphoric properties. In recent years, Kanna has hit the western ethnobotanical market as a plant of keen interest for ethnobotanicals explorers. 

Traditionally, the indigenous tribes of South Africa would chew between 100-400mg of the plant matter, swallowing the saliva. They would never use more than 1g at a time and have noted effects last for between 2-4 hours. 

As Kanna's popularity has spread across the west, users smoke, chew, or ingest the powder via tea or capsules. 

Users have also found that smoking between 50-200mg of plant material provides the same effect, with a maximum dose of 500mg per sitting.

We sell fermented and non-fermented Kanna. Fermentation increases alkaloid concentration, but the non-fermented is still very potent. 

Our Kanna is sold purely for ethnobotanical interests as a burning incense. It is not meant to be ingested. We do not promote our Kanna for edible purposes and withdraw ourselves of any responsibility.
