Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum)
Commonly used part: Leaves
Reported effects: Stimulating, relaxing, a sense of well-being, euphoria and a reduced appetite.
A native of South Africa, Kanna has a very rich and pulpy inside that is very adaptive to different environments and can be turned into different products. Its white flowers are grown big and develop a yellow center that holds the cocoons of the pulpy inside which are later processed.
Kanna is an inhibitor of serotonin and can improve a person’s mood and calm the nerves. However, it should not be combined with medicine that is aimed to improve the cardiovascular system, because it could have a contrary effect.
Oil made from the Kanna is often applied to painful gums to reduce toothaches because it has mild properties of an anesthetic as well.
