Kanna Extract (sceletium tortuosum)
More about Kanna ET2 Extract
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).
