Kanna is a succulent found in the deserts of South Africa.
Kanna is a true sacred plant, having been used in ceremony for thousands of years by the San and Khoi people.
Today Kanna is most commonly used recreationally for its euphoric and empathogenic effects, and therapeutically for its anxiolytic and neurogenic benefits.
Kanna is non-toxic, non-addictive, and has proven efficacy in some of the most important aspects of health and wellbeing, including:
Improving mood and mental health, relieving stress and anxiousness, improving cognition and memory, facilitating love and connection, and improving sleep.
Kanna measurably enhances the function of serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine. These neurotransmitters are closely associated with feelings of positivity, connection, and safety.
When you take your first dose of Kanna you’ll immediately notice the pepper+mint sensation move through your mouth.
This enlivening sensation will naturally draw your attention to your breath and heart center. For most people, within 10 - 15 minutes a gentle feeling of peaceful calm and content happiness will begin to blanket you.
With consistent, regular use of Kanna you may find that you are less reactive to triggers, feel more optimistic and outgoing, and find deeper connection in your relationships and the things you enjoy.
The effects of Kanna could best be described as nourishing the Heart + Mind connection, and bringing these two modes of thinking and feeling into harmony.
Start with just 3 tiny drops under your tongue. Most people notice the effects within 10 minutes.
Take as needed, up to 3 times per day.
We recommend using our Kanna Tincture on its own, or as part of a comprehensive microdosing protocol.
Our Kanna’s rapid onset makes it a powerful tool to help keep you grounded and centered, even when you’re facing challenging situations.
Its effects can enhance your experience in a yoga practice, meditation, or even a journey.
