More about Kanna Snuff
Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum) is a succulent from South Africa. Its relaxing effects were discovered by the Khoikhoi more than 300 years ago. The tribal members use kanna as a euphoric stimulant. It is sniffed, chewed or prepared as a tea. It removes worries and has a mood-enhancing and empathogenic effect.
In a higher dose it creates a euphoric feeling and a more intensive connection with the environment. After ingestion, it is slightly stimulating and after about an hour more relaxing . Some users experience increased sensitivity to touch and an increase in libido.
The active ingredients of Sceletium tortuosum are mesembrine, mesembrenone, mesembrenol and tortuosamine. Mesembrine, the most important alkaloid, is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI).
Usage: You can sniff Sceletium. 20 mg is enough to notice the effects. You can also chew it with a piece of chewing gum, as a modern variant of traditional use. In that case, take a larger quantity, for example 100 mg to one gram. You can also make tea or extract the active ingredients with alcohol.
