Product information

Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum) ET2 extract is best used as a snuff for a very strong and fast-acting euphoric effect.

This extract contains a much higher concentration than other extracts, making this ET2 very potent! Note that kanna ET2 extract is recommended for experienced kanna fans only.

What is kanna?

Kanna is a South African narcotic plant also known as Sceletium Tortuosum. Its relaxing property was discovered by the Hottentots (Khoikhoi) over 300 years ago. The tribesmen would chew or sniff kanna for pleasure.

Kanna ET2 extract usage

ET2 is usable as a snuff and can be mixed in a tea.

Be careful of your dosage as this is a very potent kanna extract. Use 15 - 20 mg for a light experience and up to 40 - 50 mg for strong effects.

Effects kanna ET2

Kanna produces a number of closely related effects, including a general feeling of relaxation, social buzz and mental invigoration.

When sniffed, the onset is three minutes and effects last around 30 minutes. If you use this extract in a tea it won't be active as quickly but will last for much longer, up to two hours.

This is really nice stuff. I got a calming and warm mood for a long time. Not like eware of overdosing! Not like mdma. Much softer. Its just right to chill out with friends. Beware of overdosing! First time i did ( 0.1g instead of 0.01g) and felt like drunk-as-fuck-smoking-hard-tobacco-in-a-bong-in-the-morning.…

Expect a big slap in your face few minutes after the first sniff, a very nice experience if you do not use too much of it. Taste is not that good but a little bit of it is enough for a nice trip.

Expect a big slap in your face few minutes after the first sniff, a very nice experience if you do not use too much of it. Taste is not that good but a little bit of it is enough for a nice trip.

Feeling of warmth is very short and it will be felt only after the first couple of sniffs, but if you keep taking small amounts a good energy will remain with no negative effects.

Good for social interaction, it also can keep you awake and it will not mess with your sleeping pattern. I also did not notice any "hangover effect" after a full night of use.

Hi there.

Euhm.. so a review, well here it goes - a summary:


A very nicely controllable SSRI devoid of any recreational value.
- this is the shortest way to describe Kanna for me.

Hi there.

Euhm.. so a review, well here it goes - a summary:


A very nicely controllable SSRI devoid of any recreational value.
- this is the shortest way to describe Kanna for me.


More thoroughly:

So far I tried all Kanna products on Azarius (except for the new Thai extract or any liquid version) and they all were a total waste of money for me because only two of them worked - and not as expected or described, namely:
The Kanna teabags & this very product here, the ET2 extract.

However, to get any effect from the teabags, I had to drink 12(!) of them at once. The effect lasted for several hours and felt 1:1 identical to that of any SSRI like Sertraline (no surprise if you look at its mechanism of action, apart from one single negligible difference all it does is inhibit the serotonine transporter).

Then this ET2 extract was insufflated intranasally. It worked. Again: However, not as expected or described. Firstly, far greater amounts needed to be insufflated, secondly the effects felt totally identical to any SSRI you can get free of charge from your health insurance if any doctor prescribes it to you, i.e. sertraline, fluoxetine and such.
The difference of insufflation versus an infusion as a tea taken orally? The onset is much faster (several minutes for me) and the effects lasts much shorter (a few hours for me).

The speed at which peak concentrations where reached were much faster obviously taken intranasally. However, this did not alter the quality of the experience in any regard. It still felt like an SSRI, i.e. - rather unpleasant.

I think that anyone who feels that these feel "nice" and have a "recreational" value is actually only enjoying the thymoanesthesia (lack of passion/mood and apathy) that all SSRIs induce.
Eventually glowing cheeks or headaches come from its effects on blood circulation (via effects on reducing blood clotting and such), by the way. People sensitive to nosebleeding should be a bit cautious I think. A tense jaw or tension headache also can result from its effect on the muscles. Especially if overdosed or susceptible to it (like me).

In my opinion, anyone who finds this enjoyable probably benefits from going to a doctor of choice and getting a prescription for an SSRI of choice - which is exceedingly easy as they are known to have zero potential for abuse or addiction, and for good reason. Then you even get it for free if it is covered by your health insurance, which should always be the case if a doctor gave you a prescription for it - depending on your country/laws.

Why then did I order this when I already knew this from the teabags?

Well, despite all the above mentioned shortcomings, it does have some advantages compared to all of the SSRIs on the market, which makes it somewhat unique:

One can very well control the onset of its action as well as the duration of its effects. Even if taken orally as a tea, but even better so when taken intranasally (which I would still advise against to do more than once or a very few times because it burns in the nostrils, meaning it is not good for its membranes there - makes sense I hope as it indicates it is irritating them).
Orally on empty stomach this will kick in depending on the individual in under an hour or a little bit longer and last for several hours or longer depending on the dose used.
Intranasally it is felt within minutes and lasts a few hours at the very most. Like I said - very controllable.

This is in extreme contrast to the pharmaceutical SSRIs.
Take Sertraline for instance: On empty stomache and taken orally (the only way it can be taken), it takes anywhere between 4.5 to 8.5 hours to kick in. Then its effects last for one to two days. Not very controllable. No immediate distraction or relief from emotions by inducing apathy quickly as in on demand (easily mistaken for being recreational or pleasant because it relieves the social or other tension).

Fluoxetine even lasts for a week and if taken continuously prolongs its half-life via a self-induced feedback loop and lasts for some weeks in effect just from one single dose by then.

I realise there are others out there which last shorter like Paroxetine and Venlafaxine, but none of them are comparable to Kanna. Paroxetine has a treacherously similar yet different pharmacodynamic profile from other SSRIs - as does Venlafaxine, which is why it falls into the SNRI category (depending on its dose even acting as an SNDRI with modulation of certain opioid receptor subtypes would be an even more precise description of it).

Either way, if you feel this has recreational value, it is likely that you are compensating some issues with its effect because in no way is a pure & selective, mere SSRI recreational or enjoyable to anyone who already is in a good mood and has no troubles - at least this is my experience, which is based on some decades of experience and what a review is all about, after all. If it were a selective serotonine releasing agent that reversed the transporter this might be different, but a mere inhibitor like any SSRI? How can this be recreational?

But if such people exist who really find this has recreational value - as alien as this seems to me - by all means, I am happy for you. After all, individuals differ. Or so I hope.
Yet then again I wonder why no SSRI is known to have any recreational value. Anyways.

Lastly, it could be just me because I needed such large amounts of it to actually feel its effect, but I find this way, way, waaaaaaaaaaay too expensive.

All in all - not bad, but also not really that good. I got nothing positive out of it for me, which is for the most part probably due to my very unique nature as an individual who has just had too much and too long experience with all sorts of SSRIs and the likes - not Azarius' fault.

If you already tried another Kanna variant/product and felt its effects but where not that pleased with them, do not bother with other variations or preparations of it. The mechanism of its action remains the same, it will feel the same. So it was for me. If you look for something recreational, I'd advise to spend the money on Kratom - it at least is an exotic & unique opioid and not just another SSRI and has some real recreational value in my opinion.

Kind regards
