Zamnesia - Kanna: Powerful Mood-Enhancer

Kanna has been used for millennia as an entheogen and inebriant for sacred rituals. Now, Kanna is becoming increasingly popular in the West.


The traditional way to take Kanna is by chewing or snorting the dried and/or fermented roots and leaves of the plant. You can also prepare a tea from the dried plant parts. Although fermenting your Kanna is not necessary, fermentation will greatly help to max-out the effect.


Crush the plant material and place it in a sealed and sterile container. As fermentation sets in, you can observe the material’s colour change to a darker green and brown shade. Make sure you open the container once every day to air the mixture out. Leave the mixture to ferment for about 7–8 days. After the fermentation process, you need to dry your Kanna.


Put your fermented plant material into a shallow container and spread it out evenly. The best way to dry your Kanna is outdoors in a spot with direct sunlight. It’s ready when it feels dry to the touch, which can take up to 5 days. Alternatively, you can also dry your material at low heat (80°C) in the oven.

If you plan to chew your Kanna or use them to brew a Kanna tea, they are now ready. If you want to make a powder for snorting, you can use a pestle and mortar or grinder to render your dried kanna into a fine powder.


You can choose to chew your fermented Kanna throughout the day. A medium dosage of chewable Kanna is 200–400mg. When you chew the Kanna, the effect will last for about 2–3 hours.


Grind up your plant material as fine as possible if you want to snort Kanna. A medium dose is about 100mg. When you snort Kanna, you will feel the effect instantly, with a peak after 20–60 minutes. Know that snorting Kanna is not for everyone.


Making Kanna tea is the best method if you want to take advantage of all the relaxing properties of Kanna. The other methods like snorting will provide more of an energetic rush, but fewer of its relaxing properties.

To make a Kanna tea, steep your dried kanna in hot (but not boiling) water. Allow them to infuse for several minutes. A medium dose for Kanna tea is about 400–600mg. The effects will set in after an hour and will last for several hours.

Note: If you’re still new to Kanna, start with a small dosage and adjust according to your preferences.

    Works as it should

    Allora devo dire che per la mia esperienza dipende dal tipo di assunzione. Con l'assunzione per via nasale l'effetto è abbastanza blando e dura poco, oltretutto brucia abbastanza il naso. Tuttavia con l'assunzione orale tramite gomma da masticare devo dire che l'effetto si sente molto e si combina anche bene insieme ad altre sostanze.

    E. P.

    Pretty good
    Nice effect, i recommend.

    Wat kan ik zeggen, Kanna is zo fijn. Geweldig gevoel zonder helemaal weg te zijn. De keuze om in jezelf te keren of je te uiten. Bovendien gezond, ben je depressief, probeer dit eens. Poeh...ik ben echt fan.

    J. O.

    Plutôt bien
    J'ai apprécié en tisane, pas trop compris pourquoi fallait le faire fermenter... Autant le vendre près à la consommation non ?

    B. N.

    Belle découverte
    Idéal en infusion.

    Wer's mag
    Habe es zerkleinert und geschnüffelt. Pures Kanna lässt sich dafür auf jeden Fall besser dosieren wie Extrakte. Habe mir auch Tee gemacht, mal mit einem Gramm, mal mit 2. Geschmacklich fand ich das naja, hat irgendwie holzig geschmeckt. Preislich ist der Artikel auch nicht so top, aber es zeigt auf jeden Fall gute Wirkung. Muss leider sagen, dass ich dennoch lieber mit Extrakten arbeite.

    Just chew it
    I felt immediately very relaxed after chewing it. I had a acid trip yesterday so yeah this is a great moment to relax. And for after a nighty is a great idea to just take along with you, you can chew it everywhere just to relax down.

    Good quality
    A lot stronger than i expected, 400mg as a tea is perfect for me. It lasts more than 8h this way. Personally i prefer the raw kanna above the extracts. I would like to see they offer this one in larger packagings too

    D. R.

    Ordered 10g, got 9.6g instead...
    Not a tragedy, but... :/ Anyways, the quality seems to be really good. So... 5 Stars. :)

    Kanna stracciata
    Se tenuta a fermentare ed essiccata, in poco più di una settimana diventa molto più potente. Il metodo di assunzione che ho preferito è tramite infuso. Perfetta

    E. S.

    Kanna is a mild but good relaxant. I recommend.

    P. J.

    smoke it
    très sympa à fumer, ça décontracte, mais un peu cher

    D. S.

    Je l'ai pris en tisane, 600mg et 1g. Plus sédatif que 50 mg de Kanna extreme, et plus long (3 h) mais mêmes effets d'ivresse, de détente, de détachement et de bonne humeur. Dans les deux cas pour moi, une baisse d'activité mentale qui donne le sentiment de reprendre possession de soi dans le calme, une plus grande attention à l'instant présent et un désintérêt pour le bavardage intérieur.

    A. D.

    Kanna de calidad
    Hay que triturarlo muy bien. Con alcohol se potencia el efecto.

    M. P.

    Aucun effet à fuir grosse arnaque
    Aucun effet a absolument fuir. Gros gaspillage

    M. T.

    un buon the di relax
    a me di tirarla non mi piace preferisco il the che mi piace molto di piu. buon prodotto sto sperimentando quale sia la dose giusta per il the

    M. T.

    didnt expect much at first, but Kanna surprised me in a good wY! Also tried the Kanna extreme..way stronger!

    K. K.

    Had meer van het effect verwacht, had nauwelijks iets opgemerkt. Maar elke persoon reageert anders, men moet het proberen om een mening te vormen!

    M. P.

    Sehr grob, nicht fermentiert
    Das Kraut kommt im Zip-Beute aus Aluminium. Sind noch ganze Pflanzenteile, und selbst mit der Kaffeemühle bekommt man die nicht so einfach klein. Das erste mal habe ich das als Tee probiert, hat aber keine Wirkung. Dann habe ich das Pulver befeuchtet und ohne Luft in Plastik eingepackt. Das Päckchen hinter die Heizung gehängt und jeden Morgen geöffnet und durchgeknetet. Nach 3 Tagen roch das schon fermentiert, also habe ich das auf Papier ausgebreitet und bei 100 Grad im Backofen getrocknet. Finde die Wirkung aber trotzdem nicht spürbar. Vielleicht noch etwas länger fermentieren? Das Produkt „Kanna 1g“ von zamnesia hat deutlich mehr Wirkung, in Zukunft werde ich mir wieder das bestellen. Oder ein Extrakt.

    Relaxation légère pour aider à trouver le calme

    M. C.

    Great addition to my tea blend
    I have a psychoactive tea that generally I like to make when I have sometime to relax or feel the need to destress. Around 1 litre of water, the juice of 1 lemon, 600 - 800+mg of Kanna, 600 - 800+mg of Wild Dagga and 5g of shredded damiana. Lightly simmered in water from a freshly boiled kettle for 20 minutes, with added sweeteners (sugar/honey/etc) to help with the astringent taste. This recipe can be varied for strength and with additional herbs added. It offers a similar sensation to being stoned without the anxiety I often suffer with, starts off rather euphoric and leads to sedated chilled. I will say I am rather sensitive to intoxicants, so it may not work for everyone.

    S. M.

    Great service
    And thank you for the gift

    Esta Kanna es de gran calidad
    Con la ayuda de molinillo de especias triture todo el contenido del paquete y obtuve un fino polvo tipo rapé muy suave y delicado, convertí los 5gr en 1,3gr de polvo, el resultado ha sido increíblemente bueno, mejor que la kanna triturada que había comprado anteriormente. Luego puedes realizar una mezcal de este rapé con el Kanna Extract ET2 y consigues una mezcla muy potente, con la cuenta esnifando pequeñas dosis el efecto se magnifica y potencia el resultado. Esto puede ayudarte a que solo hagas pequeñas microdosis y el producto te rinda más tiempo.

    un po sgradevole il sapore ma ottimo !!!

    Loving it
    So far the best thing I've tried to mix with cannabis. For me it fights effectively the "couch-lock" effect, giving the energy to be productive even after smoking a fat one.

    A. C.

    Creates a very, very heavy stone when combined with an indica. Wasn't expecting that level of enhancement. I can certainly see how this could be used as an antidepressant.

    B. L.

    Bien bon produit
    Je crois que c'est la forme de Kanna que je préfère, à fumer ou en infu ça marche bien, gout pas terrible mais c'est léger et agréable comme effet, ça met bien, relax et smile et pas grosse défonce et angoisse comme avec la beuh de maintenant qui est limite de la drogue dure

    V. L.

    Pour avoir un effet très apaisant et relaxant. Parfait.

    E. D.

    Effetto rilassante e spedizione veloce.

    F. C.

    Super !!!
    Effet très apaisant et relaxant.

    E. M.

    Effets plutôt sympas à la combustion
    Ajouté comme "épice" dans une préparation à fumer, les effets sont plutôt cools mais le goût est assez fort. Néanmoins si je trouve un bon mélange ça pourra être mieux !

    L. Z.

    Top wie immer!
    Lieferung verlief super schnell, Ware sieht gut aus und es gibt wie immer nichts zu bemägeln! Dank an die Zamnesia Elfen

    D. W.

    Good product , on me it works different any time i use it. Sometimes colorful , sometimes euphoric, and sometimes i get really sleepy after i smoked it. But as always very good quality like anything else here.

    H. S.

    juste comme je recherche, un ptit effet pas trop disons déchiré

    P. B.

    Très agréable à fumer, met de bonne humeur et stimule légèrement, les effets sont subtiles mais agréables et satisfaisant.
