Kanna Sceletium tortuosum

WARNING!

              It's very important to know that Sceletium tortuosum ( Kanna ) is an SRI. SRI is short for Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor. It can be dangerous when mixed with the wrong things! You'd be suprised how common the wrong things are. Do not combine it with MAOI's like Ayahuasca vine, Passion Flower, Syrian Rue, Yohimbe, Kratom, and others. Using it in combination with the wrong things can be FATAL. It should not be combined with anti-depressants. Certain combinations of Kanna with other drugs, plants, or substances, can lead to a serotonin overdose. Symptoms include hyperthermia, sweating, increased heart rate, shivers, dilated pupils, rapid breathing, fever, confusion and organ failure.


Kanna, scientifically known as Sceletium Tortuosum is yet another entheogenic plant native to Southern Africa. Like Lion's Tail ( wild dagga ), the Hottentots tribe of Southern Africa also used it as a mood enhancer, relaxant, intoxicant, and empathogen. Empathogens is a term used to label a class of psychoactive substances that create emotional and social changes.


Traditionally it was eaten, chewed, smoked or used as a snuff producing euphoric effects coupled with alertness that eventually faded into relaxation. Sufficient ammounts of it when chewed, produce anesthetic effects in the mouth. Anesthetic is a term that referrs to substances that provides pain relief, usually associated with a numbing sensation. Much like Kava Kava, it also has this ability to numb the mouth. The San tribes use it for patients about to have a tooth pulled, or for children with colic in smaller doses. It has even been utilized in assisting alcoholics to slowly lessen their alcohol intake. The plant itself actually produces a chemical that's called mesembrine. This means that this plant naturally produces anesthetic compounds and other varities as well.


It's prized for its effects that elevate mood and decrease anxiety, stress and tension. It's popular as a recreational alternative intoxicant. Great caution should be taken when someone is planning consumption. This is because the plant is classified as a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI). This means that when combined with common psychiatric medications like other SSRIs (Prozac) and MAO Inhibitors. It can be dangerous when mis-used.


Remember "spice", that fake synthetic Marijuana-immitation garbage from the twi-light zone? What a terrible thing right? Did you know that the Khoikhoi people of South Western Africa made their own herbal smoking blends, except instead of being laced with synthetics, they were combinations of herbs laced with Cannabis? The Khoikhoi would create herbal smoking mixtures using Cannabis and other herbs including Kanna. Other plants that they often combined in smoking mixtures were Damiana, Blue Lotus, Wild Dagga, Tongkat ali and Ginseng. Remember the precaution section at the beginning of this page, and use extreme caution after conductiong through research.


Intoxicating Plants


               Many of the entheogens listed on BotanicalGuides.com are native to Africa, and have been prized there for centuries. Entheogenic plant use, or the use of different intoxicating plant species is believed to have gone on as long as history has been recorded. Many of these plants are really only found in certain parts of the world where the are native. The climate there is also such a way that it permits their growth. These cultures have embraced the use of these native intoxicating plant species for many generations.

Kava Kava is a good example of this. The plant is a major cash crop for islands such as Vanuatu, where it originates. There, the cultures has embraced Kava's use for generations. Alcohol on the other hand is illegal in Vanuatu. So if you think that alcohol, tobacco, and straight up b.s. illegal drugs is all there is, you're mistaken. There are some cool plants out there that are gentle in my opinion. It's lack of precaution and research that can lead to harm, and only that. I myself am glad to have found plants like Kava Kava.
