Kanna is the name given to the fermented roots and leaves of the South African bush Sceletium tortuosum, a traditional vision-inducing entheogen and inebriant that in the West is more regularly used to improve mood and reduce anxiety. Its effects are similar to St John’s wort, but more potent.

More info

Kanna has been used by South African hunter-gatherers for well over 1,000 years. Its primary use was by warriors returning from battle, who took it to help dispel what we now call PTSD that was common after violent conflict.

Its first documented use by Westerners was in 1662 by the Dutch explorer / trader Van Riebeeck. He started to barter with local tribes for it, after finding out about its effects on stressed individuals. There is renewed modern interest thanks to our epidemic of depression complaints.


Use as a snuff (20 mg) or chew (100 mg – 1 gram) with some gum.

A single pack contains 1 gram of kanna.


The plant contains mesembrine, though the pharmacology of kanna is not fully understood.


Do not consume with SSRI anti-depressants or MAO inhibitors. Never take more than the recommended dose. Do not use kanna in combination with alcohol, medicines or other drugs if you suffer from high blood pressure, heart- or vascular disease and/or problems of the thyroid and/or liver, panic attacks, depression or other psychic problems. Also, do not use when pregnant or breastfeeding. Always consult a doctor if you have worries. Store this product in a cool, dry place and of course, out of reach of children.

    parfait pour moi
    dans une cigarette faut forcer la dose ! mais j'adore les effets ça n'arrache pas la tète comme certaines bheu qui te scotche! c'est relaxant la montée et douce ça me convient parfaitement !!


    Peu d’effet
    Brule le nez, coulée horrible et peu d’effet


    I sniffed it and I felt nothing.
    It smells like Oregano and Rosmary for me.. I sniffed a lot of it and I felt nothing..


    Definitely not what we expected
    Because of all these positive reviews we had maybe higher expectations. We sniffed it and nothing happened. The atmosphere was already chilled so that could be a reason for not feeling that calming effect. Anyway, dont think that I’m gonna try this again.

    Efficace et pas cher
    Pas mal je recommande


    Très bon produit, je recommande.


    Esta bien
    Al esnifar pica en la nariz bastante y hay que consumir mas de lo que pone en la pagina para lograr los efectos. Al principio da un pico de euforia para pasar a la relajacion. No es nada fuerte y es bastante placentero


    Nice high
    I like this stuff, it’s a very mild kind of high and my dreams get really vivid. I don’t experience any sort of halucinations or trips, but it’s very calming and makes you feel a little funny, but it definitely won’t make you trip or see things. I recommend not watching TV as it was a bit too much (at least for me). It smells really nice in my opinion: like dried flowers or tea. So far I only sniffed it, so maybe it’s stronger or different when you consume it in another way.


    Esta bien
    No está mal. Aunque prefiero kanna extreme. :)
