Every body is different, with unique biology and a range of tolerances.
That said, most people notice the effects of PLAY within 30 - 45 minutes.
When you take your first dose of PLAY you’ll notice a lifting of your mood, thoughts, and emotions. A sense of joy, ease, and flow will fill you up from the inside out and make whatever you are doing more enjoyable.
If you struggle with mood issues or have a higher tolerance you may notice the long term benefits of PLAY after following a 1 - 4 week protocol.
The long term benefits are often experienced as having more sustained energy, feeling more emotionally resilient and less, and feeling a greater sense of belonging and social connection.
The effects of PLAY could best be described as opening the heart, elevating mood, and catalyzing a state of joyful flow.
On its own Kanna can help lift your mood and feel more outgoing. When Kanna is formulated with the right combination of plants and mushrooms its euphoric and empathogenic effects can be significantly enhanced.
With PLAY we have done just that, in order to provide you with a microdose that can help open your heart for the day, or give you long-term suppport with your mental and emotional health.
Start with just 1 capsule.
Take it with water, with or without food.
It’s best to take PLAY in the morning or during the day. We’ve found that it can be challenging to fall asleep if we take PLAY late at night — though it can make socializing really fun!
See how you feel after taking just 1 capsule.
If you’d like the effects to feel stronger take 2 capsules.
We don’t recommend taking more than 2 capsules in a day.
PLAY can be used on its own, or as part of a comprehensive microdosing protocol.
Its effects can enhance your experience at a festival, on a hike, or in a multitude of other social settings.
Taken daily, PLAY is also an excellent way to help keep your thoughts positive and optimistic.
We recommend a 5 days on 2 days off protocol.

Where do you get your Kanna?
Our Kanna comes from South Africa.
We work with several different growers on the West Coast of the country that have over 20 years of experience cultivating high alkaloid sceletium (kanna) strains.
They use beyond organic standards for their cultivation methods. Zero chemicals, synthetic fertilizers, or non-organic inputs are used in the entire cultivation process.
Plus, a percentage of all sales from the Kanna we purchase goes to support the indigenous San communities of South Africa.
Is your Kanna certified organic?
There is not an official organic certification process for Kanna at this time.
However, since Kanna is a hardy succulent that grows in sand, there is little need for synthetic inputs or pesticides, and most growers do not use them.
We only work with growers that follow beyond organic and ethical growing practices.
How are your formulas tested?
Every ingredient is thoroughly tested for purity and contaminants, including microbial screening for any bacteria, yeast, and mold; heavy metals; pesticides; as well as testing for purity and active compounds.
Can I take Kanna while on medication?

If you are on any prescription medications or health protocols, it is very important that you have a conversation with your prescribing physician before taking Kanna. It is especially important to talk with your doctor if you are prescribed SSRI or MAOI medication.

How many capsules can I take in a day?

How do I use PLAY in a microdosing protocol?
Microdosing protocols are often sequenced with on days and off days.
For most people, cycling the two seems to create a better response to the microdose. Though everyone is different, and what works will for one person may not be ideal for another.
There are a few popular microdosing protocols that people follow. Such as 1 day on 2 days, and 4 days on 3 days off.
We recommend 5 days on 2 days off a starting point, but encourage you to listen to your body and intuition, and find a protocol that feels right to you.
