Kanna Sceletium tortuosum
sceletium tortuosum


           Kanna is an SSRI. It's used in holistic healing practices to treat depression. You should know that it's rather important to proceed with caution with this one though. It's considered an intoxicant, or "inebriating entheogen" by some cultures, a study known as "ethnobotany". Throughout history it's been known to induce states of expanded consciousness. The effects bein with a sudden rush of elevated mood, followed by a glowing euphoria, and then finally moving towards a state of sedation. It should not be combined with prescription drugs, or anything else for that matter, unless you really know what you're doing. I have dabbled with it the past very careful and it's cool, but nothing to be used daily like Kratom. I think it could be useful by some as an alternative to pharmas but you need to talk with a Doctor you can trust about that, not me. It's interesting though and the phytochemistry behind it is rather fascinating. Learn More about Kanna here.


Kava Kava Piper methysticum
piper methysticum


          Kava Kava has intoxicating properties. It's the root of a plant in the member of the pepper family. On the island of Vanuatu, it's the chosen drink of choice. Alcohol has been outlawed there, while the people embrace Kava instead. It's great for dealing with insomnia and has been clinically proven to reduce stress. It's effects are blisful, euphoric, elevate mood, relax muscles, and leave you feeling more social and less anxious. Word of caution though: I'm not a doctor but if you have ulcres I'd talk with him or her first and proceed with caution if you are interested in this stuff or anything else and have this condition. I suggest actual kava vs extracts. Use comsumer caution when checking out extracts, as some pharma grade products have been reported to be on the market. Know that actual root and something else are not the same thing. I support trusted vendors on this site so rest at ease. Learn More about Kava


Kawa kawa Macropiper excelsum
macropiper excelsum


       Kawa induces a bliss state of relaxed euphoria, acts as a mild sedative, and offers a number of medicinal properties. It was traditionally prepared in the form of a cold water tea. It's also been added to infusions by herbalists for bladder conditions, boils, bruises, toothaches, and for its tonic properties. It's a whole lot like Kava, with a unique sort of vibe. It's acutually been called 'false kava' by some, and shares a lot of the same benefits. The stuff is rather hard to find these days. It used to be sold by a shop called Bouncing Bear Botanicals before they were illegally sabotaged out of business via financial sabotage and corrupt government harrasement and false arrest. It remains a valuable part of the Botanical Guides database to this day.Learn More about Kawa Kawa


Klip Dagga / Lions Ear Leonotis nepetifolia
leonotis nepetifolia


          This plant is well known for its rather interesting phytochemical makeup. It produces compounds which make it a powerful antispasmodic that inhibits acetycholine and histamines. This makes it a useful natural anti-histamine. In Africa, it's consumed for some mild psychoactive properties. Some compare it to the Blue Lotus or Kanna. Klip dagga is often marketed by some as a "legal high" but I feel this is mostly hype. I don't want to discreit its potential but science says it's there, more specifically phytochemistry. Yet it's not quite narcotic like it's describec by some shops. It does have phytochemical analysis which indicates medicinal use, and even some cultural or ethnobotanical history though.

Kratom Mitragyna speciosa
mitragyna speciosa


           Kratom has been used by people from all walks of life to deal with opiate withdrawal and addiction. Others simply enjoy it recreationally, or for other claimed ailments. There have been netflix documentaries on it. The FDA heavily disagrees with this but America is a free country. The tree is closely related to the Coffee species. It produces chemical that interact with opioid receptors in the human body. This makes the effects produced by the plant very simliar to that of opiates and even caffeine but without horrific consequences, as Americans claim and observe. It's not synthetic, or a designer drug, but there have been debates on whether or not it does show up on a drug test under a false pretense. Learn more about Kratom.
