Product information

Sceletium tortuosum, better known as kanna, was used as a psychedelic by the Hottentots of South Africa. It can be sniffed, chewed or used as tea. The Dutch who arrived in South Africa called it kougoed, which means 'chewing substance'.

Effects of kanna

Sceletium tortuosum relaxes and is socially stimulating. Some users have noted enhanced tactile and sexual response.

Kanna usage

Kanna can be used as a snuff, in which case 20 mg is sufficient to produce a substantial effect. You can also chew it with a piece of gum. In that case it's advisable to take a larger amount, for example 100 mg to one gram. You can also make a kanna tea (add honey or another sweetener) or extract the active compound with alcohol.

I really enjoy kanna, wonderfull stuff. Combines really well with lotus and alcohol or even kratom. Does anyone know where to find the leave? Smoking powder doesn't work for me. Snorting the powder works really well for me, I still need to try making a tea out of it, but for smoking and tea I would like to have the leave.

So I wanted to try some legal highs and couldn't find many interesting drugs, BUT then I found Kanna. I researched it a bit and found some fantastic trip stories and couldn't wait to try it. I first tried snorting about 20mg but it didn't do anything so then I tried about 100mg.

This then resulted in the most intense sneezing fit I had ever had, but no effects. The next day I researched a bit more and found that the most efficient way of taking this was to boil some water and leave the powder in there for about 10 mins and then drink the lot. Based on the results I had experienced the night before I decided to take a risk and used the rest of the 840mg in a fresh cuppa.

It tasted pretty good and a few minutes later I started to get a pounding headache, it felt really bad and so I decided to stand up to see if it made a difference. I felt sort of mechanical, relaxed and a bit tipsy, but it was weird like all emotion had drained from me. This was all good however, I still had a MASSIVE HEADACHE. If it wasn't for this it would be quite calming, but that's just my experience.
