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.

    Hat sich sehr gelohnt!
    Ich habe über den Abend verteilt insgesamt ca. 400mg geschnupft und Gras geraucht, boostet die Wirkung sehr angenehm und gibt einem etwas Energie dazu. Hatte nach der letzten Line allerdings leichte Kopfschmerzen, gingen nach etwas Wasser aber sofort wieder weg. Allein ca. 50mg geschnupft macht es einen etwas aufgedrehten, sehr euphorischen Effekt für etwa 20 Minuten, wie eine Menge Koffein, bloß sehr viel angenehmer. Kann es für Zwischendurch nur empfehlen, man sollte allerdings keinen extremen Rausch erwarten, dafür ist es nicht gedacht.


    Leider enttäuscht
    Hab die empfohlene Menge geschnupft. Allerdings war keine Wirkung. Jetzt ist es 3 Stunden später und fühl mich immernoch wie davor. Ich werde Kanna aber auf jeden Fall noch eine Chance geben.


    Mood Booster
    It is not too hard experience. Brief peak, about 90 minutes, enhancement of colours, motivation, happiness.The after effects are amazing, an incredible feeling of peace for 3 hours. Good sinergy with alcohol and cannabis.


    Love kanna
    I tried snuffing a line of this without knowing what to expect. All of a sudden I had a rush of warmth and excitement going through my body. Lots of euphoria rushing and instant smile on my face. I went outside in nature and sat there for a while. I had a slightly visual experience by everything being enhanced


    Zéro résultat


    Très bon Kanna pour commencer effet au rdv avec 50mg en sniff


    Good one


    étonnée !
    Très bon rapport/qualité prix essayer pour le moment seulement en snif avec 0.05g. Effets rapides. Merci zamnésia


    There is week effect of increasing mood. Interesting, but nothing special.


    Extremely fast shipping to Germany but no effect
    The shipping was really fast and the Zamnesia Team supported me good. But I had NO effect when I sniffed 100mg. Even when I chewed later another 750mg and sniffed another 125mg there was sadly NO EFFECT AT ALL. At least the shipping was fast... ;)
